The Lord Fights For Us & Eggs in a Basket

Exodus 14:14 (nirv)

The Lord will fight for you. Just be still.

Read

Recently, my husband and I had an argument. We’ve been married for more than 8 years, so it wouldn’t be the first time, and I’m certain it won’t be the last. But this time, something different happened. I did something I’d never done before. Instead of continuing to argue and fight, I gave up.

I left the room, went back to my desk, and sat down with my Bible. I’ll be honest, when I first started reading, it was mostly a way to distract my mind, but as I read, my heart started to soften and my anger started to dissipate.

A little later, my husband called to me and he apologized. I thanked him for apologizing and he responded by telling me that, “It was bothering him so much that he had to.”

Although my husband was the first to apologize, God was working in both of us. I’m definitely more of the “resentment holder” in our relationship, and while God was wrestling with his pride, He was softening my heart and preparing it for forgiveness through His Word.

That’s the Lord fighting. Not just for me, but for us. He fights for the good things in our lives. And He’s fighting the enemy and his ability to rule over and ruin those good things. When I fight, it’s with the wrong person about the wrong thing. But when the Lord fights, He knows exactly what and who He’s fighting for.

When He fights for us, things change, because He has the power to change things. He changes hearts and minds. He doesn’t accuse and condemn, He stirs and He wrestles. I may feel like I win fights, but the Lord wins battles.

Write

What do you need the Lord to fight for you about today? Write down anything that you can think of that requires the Lord’s battle skills.

Pray

Ask the Lord to quiet your heart and mind as He fights for you.
