As I sat down a little while ago to do my Beth Moore homework (we're doing "A Woman's Heart, God's Dwelling Place), I could think of about 15 other things that I could also be doing. I knew Satan was trying to keep me from it, but I was ready for it!! The first page of my homework had our verse for the day, which was:
"The Lord will fight for you; You need only to be still." Exodus 14:14
I loved it! It's in the passage talking about Moses and the Hebrews leaving Egypt. They begin to see the Egyptians coming after them and they are panicking and crying out "Why did you bring us here...it would have been better for us to stay in Egypt." Moses tells them to stand firm and rest assured that God will deliver them, and then says that verse. I just LOVED it - if only we could really Be Still and know that HE is God more often!! I've enjoyed my "still" time this afternoon!! Thanks for that reminder, God!
