“They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.” (Psalm 112:7)
Watching through our window, I took this photo of two sparrows huddled together using my old phone in August 2012.
It was winter in Auckland, and food was still scarce for these creatures, but I recalled how God cares for them.
I chose this photo to compliment the devotional I read from the Messianic Bible Devotionals, which I’m sharing below.
Just as the Exodus was the starting point of Israel’s salvation, so is our rescue from the kingdom of darkness, just the beginning of our spiritual journey.
But the enemy of our souls does not let go quickly; he usually tries to draw us back into bondage.
Sometimes, when our backs are up against the wall, as was the case with Israel standing at the Red Sea, we wonder: “What should I do? What should I do?”
Instead of panicking and blaming others, we can move on in faith, believing He will save us. After that, we must enter His rest and await the Lord for further instructions.
If we remember that the Lord fights our battles for us, we can quiet our inner turmoil, trust in Him, hold our peace, and refuse to speak unbelief when pushed to our limits.From “Parasha Beshalach (When Let Go): From Victim to Victorious”
Let us keep moving forward in faith, knowing and believing that our God Almighty is on our side to win all of life’s challenges.
Lord God, forgive us for our unbelief that You are our Great Defender. Thank you for always being there to protect us and help us win the battles of life. Amen.
