down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into
confusion. Exodus 14:24
because of the loud threats of an enemy they know is intent at hurting them, so
it seems realistic at such times to be fearful. But it is heartwarming to know
that God is watching over the lives of those that run to Him for shelter even
though an enemy may be raging. At the Red Sea, God withstood the
Egyptian army as they came against the escaping Israelites and confused them,
overthrowing them in the sea. The God that overthrew the armies of Egypt in the
Red Sea is more than able to protect you from the raging fierceness of an enemy
that seeks to destroy you. So fear not, God is alive and He is watching your
back and no power can harm you in His mighty hands. How reassuring it is to
know that though evil may be roundabout, yet God’s grace abounds even the more
to keep you in such times of danger. The apostle Peter assures us in 1 Peter
1:5 that God keeps us with His power through faith. God told Israel, ‘I will
send my terror ahead of you and throw into confusion every nation you encounter
and I will make all your enemies to turn their backs and run’. Exodus 23:27.
What a promise, you may say, and the same is true for you today. God will make
those that plan to hurt you turn their backs on you and run. It is a promise He
made and will keep.
have no need to fear when you are in the hands of a God who is able to make
your enemies turn their backs on you and run. Has the threat of the enemy
caused you to fear? Then consider the presence of this all-powerful God who is
on your side with His omnipotence; so, rest.
you and keep you in Jesus name. Amen.
