Fear Not, God Before and Follows After You

“13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:13-14 I read this last night in preparing for today’s blog post. Early this morning the Lord spoke to my heart and said I not only go before you and prepare the way, I follow behind you ensuring your safety. Here we have the murmuring Children of Israel in the verses before saying, “And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? (Verse 11)” Our loving merciful Father doesn’t leave them in their place of doubt. Instead He has Moses tell them to fear not and verse 14 says “The Lord shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace.” Our Father goes on to part the sea in a miraculous way. The children cross over unharmed and then sea comes crashing down in verses 27-28, “27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. 28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.” This spoke so much into my present situation as the Lord told me I go before you and I follow after you. Friends keep pressing, no one can touch you in the middle when God’s hand of protection has the water stayed on both sides. That is worth a praise shout! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
