Accept God’s Peace in Battle

February 26, 2018

Deuteronomy 20:1-4When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God is with you, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. 2 As you move forward for battle, the priest shall come near and speak to the people. 3 He shall say: “Hear, O Israel, today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be faint-hearted or afraid; do not be terrified or give way to panic before them. 4 For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.

Exodus 14:13-14But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! {Stand firm(without fleeing) and see the deliverance of the Lord} which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. 14 The Lord Himself will fight for you while you keep silent{hold your peace}.”
.
Jeremiah 20:11But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor{everlasting confusion} will never be forgotten.

Hold on to and accept God’s peace
In the midst of your trials
Do not be afraid
Stand firm on His word
Your word, O LORD, is eternal; it stands firmly fixed in heaven!
Ps 119:89
The Lord Himself will fight for you
Victory comes from the LORD!Pro 21:31

Exodus 14:13-14 AMP

1 John 2:3-5 NKJV
The Test of Knowing Him
3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

Psalm 91:14 AMP
14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Psalm 108:13 AMP
13 Through and with God we shall do valiantly{gain victory, do mighty things}, for He it is Who shall tread down our adversaries.

Trust in the Lord – wait on Him

A Way Will Be Opened

June 29, 2009

Exodus 14:13-16 AMP    Moses told the people, Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest. The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward! ” Lift up your rod and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and the Israelites shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

Moses and the Israelites were being pursued by Pharaoh and his army. There was no way back. Surrounded by mountains, desert and the Red Sea, the was no way of escape, no way out. They were no match for Pharoah’s army, they couldn’t move the mountains or dry up the sea. What could they do?

Moses told the people, Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.

Then the Lord said to move forward. The Lord showed them the way thru! As they obeyed and moved forward step by step a way was opened up before them.

Today if you are hemmed in by insurmountable problems, look up and remember the One who makes a way where there is no way, remember the One who is the Way! The One who says, “Don’t be afraid. Trust Me. Stand still and see what I will do. Go forward, I will lead you step by step. I AM with you”.

Let your faith enable you to stand still and let the Lord open the way before you. Look up!

Proverbs 4:11-13 AMP    I have taught you in the way of skillful and godly Wisdom [which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God]; I have led you in paths of uprightness. When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered [your path will be clear and open]; and when you run, you shall not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.

Go forward step by step, the way will be opened. Take each day step by step, each day is a gift from the Lord. This is the day that the Lord has made – rejoice and be glad in it(Ps 118:24)! Let the Lord lead the way, follow close in His steps as He leads you. Look up!

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”.

Faint Not

May 24, 2009

 

 

Psalm 27:13-14      I would have fainted{despaired} unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!

What do you do when you’re growing faint? When the battle surrounds on all sides? When all doors seem to be closed?

Hold on, BELIEVE and WAIT on the LORD!
Bow before the Lord, sing praises to His name
Behold the beauty of His face
Worship at His feet!
Praise the Lord for His mercy, His goodness,
… the goodness you SEE in the land of the living.
All His promises are backed by the honor of His name.
Not one will fail, every promise will be fulfilled. – Josh 23:14

The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it! -1 Thess 5:24

Take heart, wait on the Lord
He will strengthen you
He will revive you
His mighty right hand stretches forth to deliver
He is mighty to save.

Take heart and wait, FAINT NOT
He will not abandon the works of His hands
The Lord will perfect His purposes for you
Be still and see the salvation of the Lord
TODAY is a new day
Hallelujah!

Salvation and glory and power belong to the LORD our God -Rev 19:1!

Psalm 138:1-2, 7-8     I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing praises to You before the gods. I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all{the honor of} Your name.

Though I walk in the midst{center} of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. The LORD will fulfil{perfect} His purpose for me; Your love{mercy}, O LORD, endures for ever—do not abandon the works of Your hands.

Exodus 14:13-14    Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.

God Waits, Also
By Patricia Nordman

“Wait for the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).

“Waiting has four purposes. It practices the patience of faith. It gives time for preparation for the coming gift. It makes the blessing the sweeter when it arrives. It shows the sovereignty of God to give just when and as He pleases” (Dr. James Vaughan).

There is also a condition attached to our waiting: “Don’t be impatient for the Lord to act! Keep traveling steadily along his pathway and in due season he will honor you with every blessing” (Psalm 37:34 RSV). We are to attend to the little duties as well as to the large ones. Wait and work; pray for grace and then exercise it.

It is interesting that God also waits: “Then he waited for the harvest” (Isaiah 5:2 RSV). He waits for us to consider His nature which proves His intelligence and beauty and goodness; He waits for us to reflect on history threaded through and held together with His justice and mercy, and whose mission it is to turn sin into righteousness; He waits for us to realize that the alternates of adversity and prosperity, friendship and enmity, sorrow and joy, are but the instruments of His spiritual instruction that we may finally dwell in the mansions He has already prepared for us.

We waste much time waiting for signs and wonders. Christ told the expectant crowd, “This is a wicked generation. It asks for a miraculous sign” (Luke 11:29). In our day of the Gospel, which is filled with the plainest evidence of God’s care for us, we do not need to use a flashlight to shine it on the Son who is the Light of the world and we don’t need to dump in our buckets of contaminated water to add to the Living Water. To ask for signs from God when He has already pledged numerous promises is to tell God we are ungrateful and undeserving.
===============
The duty of waiting:

The Christian soldier is long in learning to wait.
Marching and countermarching are much easier to God’s warriors than standing still. There are hours of perplexity when the willing spirit anxiously desires to serve, but knows not how. Shall it vex itself by despair? fly back in cowardice? turn aside in fear? rush forward in presumption? No; simply wait; but

I. WAIT IN PRAYER. Call upon God; spread the case before Him; tell Him the difficulty; plead His promises.

II. WAIT IN SIMPLICITY OF SOUL. In dilemmas it is sweet to be humble as a child. It is sure to be well with us when we feel and know our folly, and are willing to be guided by God’s will.

III. WAIT IN FAITH. Express unwavering confidence; for unfaithful, untrusting confidence is an insult to the Lord. Believe that though He keeps us tarrying He will come at the right time and will not tarry.

IV. WAIT IN QUIET PATIENCE. Not rebelling under the affliction, but blessing God for it; nor murmuring against second causes, as the children of Israel against Moses; nor wishing to go back to the world again; but accepting the case as it stands, and putting it simply and whole-heartedly into the hands of our covenant God. (C. H. Spurgeon.)
