Today's Devotion
December 28, 2000
 
"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 . . . The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace" (Exodus 14:13-14)
   
  
Today's Thoughts 
  
"Fear ye not" . . . let the words ring in your ears!
 
Last year this time, everyone was talking about it . . . everything you listened to (television, radio, etc.) were proclaiming it aloud . . . every newspaper, every magazine, every periodical, and even many churches! Fear was mounting by the minute concerning the possible events connected with "Y2K". And now, here we are one year later, and no one hardly remembers the feeling of fear that gripped their heart and caused their lips to tremble! But, what does God have to say about all the emotion . . . very simply He says, "Fear ye not!"
 
We've all heard the song, "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands" and nothing could be more truthful! But the question is, do we believe it, and if we do, why do we walk in fear of problems we aren't even sure exist! And, if they DO exist, why can't we trust God to keep us in the palm of His hand.
 
His Word says He promises to protect you, shelter you, provide for you, and according to today's verse, "the LORD shall fight for you!" All through the Word of God there are examples of God's omnipotence . . . His power . . . to do just what He has promised to do and even more!
 
Is there reason for us to fear? No! Is there reason for us to doubt? No! Moses told the people that "the LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace." If you allow Him to fight your battles . . . if you allow Him to take care of you . . . nothing . . . ABSOLUTELY NOTHING . . . can rob you of the peace that He has given you . . . you shall HOLD YOUR PEACE!
 
With another new year soon approaching, don't allow fear to rob you of the blessing found in just knowing that God is in control and He is working EVERYTHING for your good because you love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). 
  
 
Today's Prayer 
  
Father, forgive me for entertaining thoughts of fear. Lord, help me look at this new year as an opportunity for me to realize that fear is not of you but peace is . . . the kind of peace that passes all understanding! Lord teach me to cast any fear and doubt far away from me and to allow faith to grow in my heart in all matters concerning life in this age. Lord, I trust You, I love You, I will NOT fear! Amen! 


Have a blessed day!
