‘The Lord is a warrior, the Lord is his name.’ (Exodus 15v3) – did you ever think of describing God as that? Moses sang that because he had seen God deliver him and the Israelites from danger.
God is not distant. God is involved in our lives. God calls his children to obey what He wants us to do which is the best way to get through what we are dealing with. Then sometimes God says; ‘The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still.’ (Exodus 14v14).
Question is: do we listen to Him? Do we trust God? What does obeying or being still look like for you today?
