Message for May 1, 2022 from Pastor Shirley

The Egyptian army behind them and the Red Sea before them. What could the Isralites do?  If they went forward they would drown if they went back it meant slavery again.                                                                       We all face those times in life where the past is coming up behind us and it seems as if we have no place to go. Moses gave the Istalites some good advice that would help us during those times in life. 
Moses said unto the people, “Do not, be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace”. Exodus 14:13-14
Do not be afraid. Over and over in the Bible we are told, “do not be afraid, fear not”.  God knew the many opportunities we would have to fear or be afraid.  Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God.I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand”.
Stand still. The words “stand still” mean “to position yourself, to place yourself, and be ready to move forward.   Psalms 46:10 “Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God”. 
The Lord will fight for you.   God will go before us and untangle the snares the enemy has planned for us and they will scatter. Deuteronomy 28:7  “The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways”.                                                                                                                                                         
Hold your peace. Don’t worry, no more trying to figure everything out. This is a time of trusting God to make a way for you.                   “Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”.
