“The Lord will fight for you. You only need to be still” Exodus 14:14
When we are struggling with something in life, sometimes the best action is to do nothing. That’s right, take no physical action. Instead, turn the problem over to God. Surrender that problem to Him and say, “I can’t do this Lord. I’ve tried everything. I put it in your hands.”
“You will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory.” ~ 2 Chronicles 20:17
Now, don’t get me wrong. If you are out of work, you can’t just sit home, binging on Netflix and think some job is going to fall on your lap. Instead you probably need to brush up your resume. God admonishes the lazy.
But for many problems, God instructs us to be still. He instructs us to have faith. Having faith oftentimes requires us to turn our struggles over to Him and “rest” assured in His strength that He will handle it.
Give it a try sometime soon, and see if His way is better than yours.
