“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever.” Exodus 14:13 (KJV)

When God says fear not, it is because He knows that you tend to be afraid. So He goes ahead of the devil to say ‘’Fear not.” God does not just say fear not and leave it hanging. No! He says fear not because the challenges you saw yesterday you will see no more forever.

Beloved, No matter what you are going through, stand still and let God take over. Step out of the way and let God be God in your life. I declare that every hindrance and obstacle that once stood against you will fall because God has taken over your battle and He will fight for you.

The good news is that Jesus has already fought all your battles and He defeated the devil. All you need do is to enforce the devil’s defeat by standing your ground on the promises of God and they will come to pass in your life. Can you remember what happened in Numbers 13? God told Moses and the people that they should not fear for He has given them the land of Jericho. But somehow they could not comprehend it because of the giants who were occupying the land at that time. He assured them that the land was flowing with milk and honey. He wanted them to see the milk and honey and not the giants.

In the final analysis, God fought for them and gave them the land of Jericho just like He had promised. Beloved, I come to encourage you to hold your peace because the God you serve has got your back covered. You can never be embarrassed. You don’t need to fret or be afraid. Let the billows rage and let the tempest be tossed, child of God hold your peace because the Lord your God is on your side. He shall fight for you. Refuse to look at what the enemy is doing but rather focus on the bigness of your God.
