Stand Still

(Exo 14:13)  And Moses said to the people, Do not fear. Stand still and see the salvation of Jehovah, which He will prepare for you this day. For the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall never see them anymore.

(Jos 3:8)  And you shall command the priests that carry the ark of the covenant, saying, When you have come to the brink of the water of Jordan, you shall stand still in Jordan.

(Jos 10:12)  Then Joshua spoke to Jehovah in the day when Jehovah delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun! Stand still on Gibeon! And, moon, stand still in the valley of Aijalon!

(Job 37:14)  Listen to this, Job; stand still, and consider the wonderful works of God.

There are times in our lives that no matter how hard we try or what we do nothing seems to come out right. There are also times that we are faced with situations that people are actually the problem. Then there are times we face what appears on the surface a task or situation that is insurmountable even impossible. Finally there are periods of sickness, suffering, persecution and affliction. Our trouble and problems seem to have no end.

The first thing that we should always do is honest self examination, take a look inward. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you if you are the problem.  Take a look at what you are doing in life are you following God’s guidance and living out his divine purpose for your life? You should also look at your surroundings what kind of company do you keep? Who are you spending your time with? Is it clear and evident that the people you associate or even live with are serving God and living out their divine purpose?

If you are the problem, then you are the one that needs to seek God’s forgiveness and probably the forgiveness of others as well. Then you need to ask God to help you pull yourself together and start afresh. However if you are not the problem then the best thing for you to do is to stand still. If you take time and study the above scriptures there are some dire situations revealed in which God’s instructions through his messengers were to simply stand still.

Often we face situations and problems and God gives us an answer or solution and we fail to give him credit.  So these Mega Problems or situations occur so that God will get the glory. God wants us to simply stand still so he can handle the problem or situation for us. It is insurmountable for us but an after thought to God. What some of you are going through right now may be so painful, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Just realize that it is all for your good and at the end of the day God will get the Glory. When it is all over the only thing you will be able to tell people is that. It was God that brought you out. It was God that delivered you. It was God that saved you. In the mean time, Stand still and see the salvation of Jehovah, which He will prepare for you this day. For the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall never see them anymore.

Just be patient, there is some stuff, some people, situations, conditions, and some places that you will see no more. It I pray soon will only be a memory. Be Encouraged and Blessed Minister Mike.
