“And Moses said to the people, ‘Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.'”
The Israelites fear that Moses has brought them out of captivity in Egypt only to die in the wilderness. Moses responds by rallying their faith and assuring them of God’s plan.
When God first called him, Moses was afraid. He thought he was insignificant and that the people wouldn’t listen to him. He learned by his experience with God in Egypt that his role was obedience. In these verses, Moses boasts of God’s faithfulness and purpose for the people. Moses changed. We can change too, if we are obedient to God.
Lord, help me to submit myself to Your purpose and to trust that You will complete the work You have called me to do.
