Be Still, Stay Calm and Watch

Over the last couple of days, I have been meditating on Psalm 136. The verses in this chapter, recount instances of God’s enduring love throughout scripture. One of my favorite parts, is when it mentions how God divided the Red Sea, in verses 13-15.

Psalms 136:13-15 (CSB)

13 He divided the Red Sea, His faithful love endures forever. 14 and led Israel through, His faithful love endures forever. 15 but hurled Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea. His faithful love endures forever.

The original story is told in Exodus 14. However, verses 13-14 in Exodus, also stood out to me. It says, “13 But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. 14 The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”

Sometimes, we just need to stand still, stay calm and watch to see what God will do.

Reflecting on these miraculous events from the past, brings us strength for today. We can choose to cast our cares upon the Lord and trust Him to fight our battles. He never runs out of whatever it is we need. He will create a path for us to walk through, just like He did for Moses and the Israelites. Every verse in Psalms 136, ends with, “His faithful love endures forever.” These are words we can all take comfort in. No matter what we are facing, we can remember that, “His faithful love endures forever.”

    1. Very true. God always has an eternal perspective and we at times want everything instantly. Although he does move quickly at times, other times we must wait. His plans are perfect. Thanks Chris.

  2. It is so reassuring to know that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He still fights our battles and we get to see them won! I will be still, stay calm, and see him give us the victory. Hallelujah!

  3. “Reflecting on these miraculous events from the past, brings us strength for today.” This is such a true statement. Sadly, how many today just “speed” read to say they’ve read the Word and don’t take time to reflect? Reflection is an extremely important part of our Christian lifestyle! Thanks and God Bless! 👍💗🕊😇

    1. That’s true. Reflection is needed. God recently reminded me that I need to set aside time in the evening before bedtime to read and reflect. You’re welcome! Blessings 🤗❤️
