“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day…The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14: 13-14)
Moses spoke to his people with the authority that came from his own receptivity and obedience to God. He himself had experienced great proofs that God would be with him and guide him. Moses knew that he could trust God and His power over all else.
Because of this awareness, Moses was able to tell his followers that in spite of great challenges, they could stand still. They could stand firmly on the Truth of God’s presence, His goodness, His purpose and omnipotence, and witness their own salvation. Today.
We can heed this divine demand as well, and expect grace. We can trust God, good, Love, Truth, to keep us safe and to set us free. This is not a mere hope that Moses had or that we aspire to believe. It is the law. Moses could stand still and firm because the law was under his feet—the law of God and His Truth, which naturally defies the lawlessness of fear and its presentations.
I love the idea that closes this statement: “Ye shall hold your peace.” This means, to me, more than, “Hush up and don’t say anything!” It means that our peace, when secured for us by God Himself, is sustained. We can hold on to it, for it, like the law of God, is always with us.
