Although God armed me for battle, the victory would be won by Him alone. “BE STILL, I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU.”
❤Exodus 13:17-18, 21 (NIV)
17When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, “If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.”
18So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea. The Israelites went up out of Egypt armed for battle.
21By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.
❤The shortcut isn’t always the right way or the best road.
❤God knows what I have to go through and He makes sure that the road is clear. Even if I have to go through hardships, He is confident that I can make it because He already armed me for battle.
GOD IS AHEAD OF ME. HE PREPARES THE WAY. HE LIGHTS MY PATH.
