The LORD shall fight for you

I like this

I don’t know about you but I have had and still experience situations in my life where I do not know how to move forward.

Some of my favourite Scripture verses that I use in these seemingly hopeless situations are as follows,

The LORD shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace.

Imagine the Hebrew slaves being rescued from the Egyptians and then the Pharaoh decided to pursue the poor people with his army. The Hebrew people were caught between a massive army and the sea. What hope was there for them?

 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord.

 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?

 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

Moses kept his faith, he said to the people,

 

 Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord…
The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

As we know the rest is history. Moses did as he was told, the Hebrew people safely reached the other side and the Egyptian army was swallowed up by the sea.

I’ve heard people say, ‘But what about the poor Egyptians?’ Well actually, they weren’t that poor. They were slave drivers that had abused the Hebrew people for hundreds of years and the Egyptians had a choice. They did not have to go running after the Hebrew people. The Pharaoh could have let the Hebrew people leave in peace as he had promised them. But greed got the better of him and ultimately was his downfall.

I love it

I love Moses’ faith and I love the Scripture verses that remind us of this. Scripture verses which we can claim for ourselves when the going gets tough.

When I was going through rough times in the past I looked in my Bible and found encouraging Scripture verses that corresponded with tough times in my life or that resonated with me because of the powerful words and promises contained within these words.

Below are some verses that I’ve put together and sing when encountering dips in the road and tough patches.

The LORD will be with you

God says stand ye still
and hold your peace
see the salvation of the LORD
ye shall not need to fight in this battle
be not afraid nor be dismayed

the battle is not yours but Gods
Set yourself yeah stand ye still
for the LORD will be with ye
wherever we go
see the salvation of the LORD

Bless our LORD, oh bless our LORD
Bless our LORD, oh bless our LORD
Bless his holy name, oh bless his holy name
bless ye our LORD

Amen

I hope that these verses will help you too when you go through rough patches. Feel free to share your favourite verses in the comments.
