Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalm 46:10, KJV
God will Fight the Battles.
You need to Stand Still and Chill. Do not be worried, stressed, overwhelmed, burned-out, and depressed about today’s happening in our world; God is in complete control. We need to stand still and have faith in Him because He will fight for us.
Psalm 46:10 says,
Be still, be calm, see, and understand I am the True God. I am honored among all the nations. I am honored over all the earth.
Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving, and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.
God is saying to you today,
“My Child, You don’t need to fight this battle. You ‘just’ need to STAND on the Word of God.
Trust me to make a way where there seems to be no way. Trust me to do the impossible.
Trust me to make the crooked paths straight.
Just believe in Me to be God for you as I did with Moses, so will I do for you.
You shall blaze trails beyond your wildest dreams or imagination.
Nothing can stop what God has ordained to prosper.
Move forward; I have already paved the path for success for you, and it’s fantastic.
Why? Because I love you with an everlasting love, and you shall be My Glory on Earth, Amen!”
This is my mentality today.
I am still not striving. Jesus is my Savior, and He will save and sustain my children and me, and all our concerns. We will not only survive, but we will thrive.
I am still.
I am trusting God.
I am chilling, not stressing.
I am worshipping, not worrying.
God is fighting my battles.
I am a winner.
I am victorious.
I am on the winning team.
I am more than a conqueror.
I am an overcomer.
I am not afraid.
I am moving forward.
I declare the marvel, miracle, and mighty of God shall manifest in your life and land, personally and globally.
Today, instead of panic, pause and God for His strength, security, protection, and provision for you and His people in the land, where God lives, rules, and governs in His supremacy and Sovereignty. I invite you to pray for a world where hearts and nations turn back to God, in repentance of sin, redemption, revival in the land, love, peace, unity, joy, oneness, and togetherness regardless of God-given diversities. When God’s children will have fearless faith to recognize, acknowledge, unapologetically, and confidently know, trust, and worship the Almighty God.
Take God at His word. Psalm 46:8-10 (MSG) says,
Attention, all! See the marvels of God! He plants flowers and trees all over the earth, Bans war from pole to pole,breaks all the weapons across his knee.
“Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.”
Shhh! Be still and listen to God. He is still God in every season of life.
He is saying to you today, “I AM God.”
God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains be shaken and slip into the heart of the seas,
Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains tremble at its roaring…
God is in the midst of her [His city], she will not be moved; God will help her when the morning dawns…
“Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.”
The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold [our refuge, our high tower].
(Psalm 46, AMP)
God is our shelter and our strength. When troubles seem near, God is nearer, and He’s ready to help.
So why run and hide? No fear, no pacing, no biting fingernails. When the earth spins out of control, we are sure and fearless. When mountains crumble and the waters run wild, we are sure and fearless. Even in heavy winds and huge waves, or as mountains shake, we are sure and fearless…
“Be still, be calm, see, and understand I am the True God. I am honored among all the nations. I am honored over all the earth.”
You know the Eternal, the Commander of heavenly armies, surrounds us and protects us; the True God of Jacob is our shelter, close to His heart.
(Psalm 46, VOICE)
God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge!
You’re a proven help in time of trouble—more than enough and always available whenever I need you.
So we will never fear even if every structure of support were to crumble away. We will not fear even when the earth quakes and shakes, moving mountains and casting them into the sea. For the raging roar of stormy winds and crashing waves cannot erode our faith in you…
God is in the midst of his city, secure, and never shaken. At daybreak his help will be seen with the appearing of the dawn…
Surrender your anxiety! Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God. I am the God above all the nations, and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.
Here he stands! The Commander! The mighty Lord of Angel Armies is on our side! The God of Jacob fights for us!
Pause in his presence
(Psalm 46, TPT)
I declare that you will no longer be a slave to fear. He whom the Son set free is free indeed. You are a child of God. You are free from bondage and captivity. Therefore, you must stand still, stop venting, start trusting God, and you will see His salvation, deliverance, and divine intervention that He will accomplish for you today. God will fight for you. Be still!
The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.
Stand on Exodus 14:13-14.
…But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. “The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent.” Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward.…”
Moses spoke to the people: “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch God do his work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians today for you’re never going to see them again.
God will fight the battle for you. And you? You keep your mouths shut!”
Moses (to the people): Don’t be afraid! Stand your ground and witness how the Eternal will rescue you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians, for after today you will never see them again. The Eternal will fight on your behalf while you watch in silence.
So you might be feeling like the children of Israel this day, saying, “God, look, Pharoah is in hot pursuit against us. He has a large army, and he is approaching us on horses and chariots, just like our enemies today.”
But, whatever the Pharoah you are facing today, the battles of sickness, disease, depression, anxiety, lack, worries, rejection, brokenness, wayward children, hopelessness, loneliness, unemployment, financial problems, family troubles, bankruptcy, no money yet bills pilling up, lousy credit, addiction, wrongfully accused, police record, prison sentence, the miry pit, the fiery furnace, and any storm of life.
I declare that you shall seek God for The Strategy, The Story, and Song of Salvation.
When God shows up in your life to fight for you, “God says they will recognize and know that – I am God! If I did it any other way, they would think they did it. This, your deliverance and breakthrough, will be known for My Glory.”
God is saying to you today,
” I will give you the strategy to win this battle. I am sending you clouds and fire signify My presence and Glory. I have already provided. Before you get there, I am already there. I have already made a way of escape for you. It shall be well. Seek me for the strategy, trust me when I reveal what you should do, and be obedient. It may look like the end, but it is the beginning. This setup is a setup for my Glory, My Honor, and Your Deliverance. The hotter the battle, the sweeter the victory!”
Choose to obey God. Take Him at His word and follow His instruction. He has the Master’s plan. Look at the obedience to God’s guidance to His people in Exodus 14:1-4.
Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Tell the sons of Israel to turn back and camp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; you shall camp in front of Baal-zephon, opposite it, by the sea. “For Pharaoh will say of the sons of Israel, ‘They are wandering aimlessly in the land; the wilderness has shut them in.’ “Thus I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will chase after them, and I will be honored through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD.” And they did so.
Eternal One (to Moses): Speak to the Israelites and tell them to go back and set up camp in front of Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, opposite Baal-zephon. Camp there next to the sea. Pharaoh will talk about the Israelites, saying, “They are wandering around in circles. The desert has closed them in on all sides.” Then I will harden Pharaoh’s stubborn heart even more, and he will pursue the Israelites. Honor will come to Me through the actions of Pharaoh and his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Eternal One.
And so they did exactly as the Eternal instructed.
God spoke to Moses: “Tell the Israelites to turn around and make camp at Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea. Camp on the shore of the sea opposite Baal Zephon.
“Pharaoh will think, ‘The Israelites are lost; they’re confused. The wilderness has closed in on them.’ Then I’ll make Pharaoh’s heart stubborn again and he’ll chase after them. And I’ll use Pharaoh and his army to put my Glory on display. Then the Egyptians will realize that I am God.”
And that’s what happened.
I declare that God shall divinely intervene even in seemingly impossible situations, and you shall experience a mind-blowing miracle, deliverance, and breakthrough and see His glory in your life, living, and livelihood.
God is saying to you today,
“My Child, please stop being so busy, depressed, disappointed, distracted, disillusion discouraged, defeated, down-trotted, daunted, and dreaded that you miss experiencing My presence and encounter with you. Seek me, and you shall find me, ask, and it shall be given, speak life, declare my promises in the storm, dance in the rain because My promises are faithful, and My might is Powerful.
Look, your Red Sea is divided. Look, the Walls of Jericho are crumbled at the shout of your praises. Every hindrance and obstacles are removed. Your victory is imminent. Your miracles of healing are being manifested. Your promotion is anointed, and you shall be appointed. A superabundant financial blessing is upon you. Your household and family are rescued and saved. The setback is a setup for your comeback. I AM GOD of Heaven and Earth!”
I declare that you shall experience the miraculous testimony of Exodus 14:13-31.
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD swept the sea back by a strong east wind all night and turned the sea into dry land, so the waters were divided. The sons of Israel went through the midst of the sea on the dry land, and the waters were like a wall to them on their right hand and their left. Then the Egyptians took up the pursuit, and all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen went in after them into the midst of the sea. At the morning watch, the LORD looked down on the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and cloud and brought the army of the Egyptians into confusion. He caused their chariot wheels to swerve, and He made them drive with difficulty; so the Egyptians said, “Let us flee from Israel, for the LORD is fighting for them against the Egyptians.”
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may come back over the Egyptians, over their chariots and their horsemen.” So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its normal state at daybreak, while the Egyptians were fleeing right into it; then the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, even Pharaoh’s entire army that had gone into the sea after them; not even one of them remained. But the sons of Israel walked on dry land through the midst of the sea, and the waters were like a wall to them on their right hand and their left.
Thus the LORD saved Israel that day from the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. When Israel saw the great power which the LORD had used against the Egyptians, the people feared the LORD, and they believed in the LORD and His servant Moses.
THE WORD OF THE LORD HAS SPOKEN; SO IS MY WORD THAT GOES OUT FROM MY MOUTH: IT WILL NOT RETURN TO ME EMPTY, VOID, AND UNFULFILLED, BUT WILL ACCOMPLISH WHAT I DESIRE AND ACHIEVE THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH I SENT IT.
What an awesome God!
So, Beloved, what are you going to do?
Join me and declare: ” I am standing still because My God is fighting my battles and making a way where there seems to be no way!”
Heavenly Father, Abba, we exalt you. Lord, Almighty God, we honor you. You are the Sovereign God. We allow you to be who You are in our lives. We get out of your way to be still and trust You.
Lord, we run to You today just as we are. O Lord, meet our needs today. O Lord, we need you, the essence, divine nature, and glory of You, Jesus. Lord, divinely intervene in our situation. Lord, we present our troubles, trial, temptations, tribulations and stand still to experience your triumph. Your victory, Shalom, Salvation, happiness, wellness, blessings, might, and strength.
We cry out personally to you, O Lord,
For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. Teach me, and I will be silent; make me understand how I have gone astray. In your presence, your love has calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. I seek your righteousness, and the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness, and trust forever. Help me to be still, I aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you. I will be still, and know that The Great I am, He is God. Lord, You will be exalted among the nations, Abba Father, You will be exalted in the earth. I declare that the LORD will fight for me; I need only to be still.”
Lord, help us to trust and obey You more. Forgive us for the times that we fail You. Forgive us for venting and complaining rather than praising and thanking You. Thank you, Lord, that you take the battle as yours to fight while we rest. You have never lost a battle, and this one will fail because You can never fail, die, lie, sleep, nor slumber. You are always at work, fighting for us, taking care of us, loving us, leading, helping, guiding, rescuing, preparing, making, forgiving, and destroying our enemies (mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, financial.)
We believe that we are not alone in this battle that we’re facing today and tomorrow because we know that You’ll always here for us to fight for us even when we are fearful, faithless, and feel like a failure. Today, we choose to seek You and choose to obey your word and commandment. Please fill us and divinely intervene in every area of our lives with Your love, joy, peace, healing, and power of Your Holy Spirit.
I am God’s child, and He will take good care of me in Jesus’ name, Amen.
