Topic: God Fights For His People
Text: Exodus 14:22 – 29
When God’s acts are made manifest, it will easily be noticed that He did it. It will not leave any trace of doubt. Pharaoh and all the Egyptians knew that God was backing the Israelites. They knew that God wants to take them out of their land but selfishness and greed blinded their eyes that they still hardened their hearts and went after the Israelites even after they had suffered the ten plagues. They drove furiously as they were pursuing the Israelites to a point that they started sinking and driving heavily. With that, they found themselves embarrassed at every step, the way grew deep, their hearts grew sad, their wheels dropped off and the axle tree failed. They had been flying upon the back of the Israelites ass the hawk upon the dove; but now they cried “Let us flee the face of the Israelites because the Lord God fights for them.”
Every child of God is special to Him. He guards them jealously and would never allow any evil to come upon them. He fights for them. This is what most people don’t know as they fight Christians. This act of God here should be an eye opener to the enemies of the gospel and Christianity. Beloved, don’t mind all the threats against you. God will fight for you as you keep your peace. He will so do it that your enemies will confess that indeed God is fighting for you.
