Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There (and Just Stay Calm)

March 12th, 2016 · No Comments

Exodus 14:13-14 (New Living Translation)

13 But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. 14 The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”

There are times when the best thing to do is, uh, well nothing. This is especially true in the Christian walk. I tend to forget that God is on my side. I tend to want to take charge and charge and (attempt to) do it all by myself.

I suppose this is part of foolish human pride. Whatever the source, it is usually foolish.

Moses tells Jehovah’s people, “Just stand still and watch the Lord.”

Good guidance for much of life’s ills.
