Keeping Focussed

The Focus must be right...Finding help in the Word

Text:

Exodus 14.

Devotion:
When Israel left Egypt they were chased by the Egyptians and until they were faced by a vast stretch of water that they were unable to cross.  Exodus 14 tells how Moses reassured the children of Israel and called on them to stand firm and watch what the Lord would do to save them.

In verses 13-14, Moses told the people:

"Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord,which He will show to you today:
for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall see them again no more for ever.
The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace."

We may also find ourselves in desperate circumstances at times, and need to stand firm and expect God to act.  It's all too easy to focus on our problems and be overwhelmed.  But, God wants us to focus on His resources and strength, rather than on our own.   We need to get close to God so that we can trust Him, for we know that God promised to keep us strong and safe until Jesus returns.

God's faithfulness ensures that none of His resources will be taken away from us.  Like the people of Israel, we need to stand firm, keep focussed on God, and expect Him to make a way through the sea of our circumstances.

God bless!
