Are you ever simply overwhelmed? Life is coming at you from all sides with no end in sight. It may seem you are fighting the battle all by yourself. Your emotional cup is full to overflowing … you may even be wondering where is God’s hand in all of what is going on.
The psalmist gives us a welcome and comforting reminder. The Lord may be silent, but that does not mean He is unaware. He WILL accomplish what concerns YOU! Sometimes we have to express our absolute dependence upon Him in order to witness the strength of His presence in our lives and circumstances. God is in control. His love for you and me does not waver, even when ours does. For His love for us is for an eternity, not just until our current circumstance is resolved.
I think of Moses fleeing from the bondage of Pharaoh. His band of Israelites are being pursued by the Egyptian army to the point of backing them up against the shores of the Red Sea. There was humanly nowhere else to go. The people were literally cornered by the rapidly advancing army. But with his faith in the Lord, Moses said in Exodus 14:
The Red Sea parted …. and not only allowed time for the Israelites to cross over to the other side but then closed back on itself destroying the armies that followed after. Not one of God’s people was lost.
The key for you and me to emulate is the faith Moses had to “stand by” … not fight or strive or struggle … but to stand by in confidence that “the Lord will accomplish what concerns me.” We must always fight the good fight and never use God as a “cop out” to not give it our best. But when you find yourself up against the wall, especially when you have tried to do all the right things, stand by and allow our mighty God to be the Almighty God. He loves you this much to make this promise, and that promise is forever.
