July 20, 2015 (Exod 14:5-18)

“The Lord Himself will fight for you; you have only to keep still.” This portion of the Book of Exodus deals with the parting of the Red Sea. (There is another version in Chapter 15) Moses tells the people they only need to be still; trust in God; He will take care of things. Often, we are impatient and don’t allow God to be God. Yes, we need to do things, but we need God’s help. As the Psalmist puts it “If the Lord does not build the city, in vain do the builders build.” We need God to teach us patience.
