“The Lord will fight for you, and all you have to do is keep still.” (Exodus 14: 14, Good News Translation)
Well, keeping still isn’t always the easiest thing to do! It may seem that the only way we are going to get what we need, gain some sense of control, or come to a resolution on things, is to keep up the personal activity. We tend to think that it’s our job to defend ourselves against the world and circumstances. This kind of uncertain fighting can be exhausting.
But we have a recourse, and knowing this, we can keep still. As we recognize that all the human wrangling and shouting, the worry and the ruminating, isn’t bringing us victory—the victory that is peace—we are ready to stop and to let ourselves be saved the right way. The easier way. The more successful way.
The Lord will fight for you. We have the divine Principle that is justice, Truth, kindness, mercy, and infinite power, on our side. As we keep still, we can feel and know this active presence, and then calmness, clarity, and inspiration come. With all the fear and blame, shame, doubt, and defensiveness released, God’s gracious goodness is revealed, right where we are.
We can keep still, gratefully. We can breathe a sigh of relief that our lives are not about having all the answers, the right weapons, all our ducks in a row. Our lives are reliant on God, the wise Almighty Who effectively, immediately, actively, and perfectly loves you.
