As I was sleeping, I started to feel a pressing need to get up and pray. When I got up, I didn’t know what to pray for so I sat in the quiet for about an hour. There is so much going on in my life; I didn’t know where to begin. I didn’t sit here in fear. I sat here, waiting to hear.
Exodus 14:14 says, “The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
Peace is something I can hold onto so that I don’t live in anxiety and fear. He fights for me.
Holding my peace, is what I did by sitting still in the quiet. I’ve asked for what I need. He knows that I need him to fight this current battle. He fights for me.
Sitting in the quiet allowed me to hear from God and see my prayers answered. That book under my bible is my prayer journal. I know God prompted (he speaks, I listen) me to read through it. I stopped on a page dated 12/29/15. Every prayer on that page has been answered (he causes me to see), although I think it’s funny how God answered them. He did it totally opposite of the way I would have. My ways are not his ways. Yet, he fights for me.
The way God answered my prayers caused me to grow in the midst of pain, disappointment, and embarrassment. That wouldn’t have been my way. My ways are not God’s ways. Yet, he fights for me.
He thinks of peace for me. So, he fights for me.
My nature is: To do. To fight. To speak. But, he said HOLD YOUR PEACE. So, that’s what I’m doing because HE FIGHTS FOR ME and HE FIGHTS FOR YOU.
