Silence is golden

There are some well known verses in Exodus 14:13-14,

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Many times I have heard people quote “…the Egyptians you see today you will never see again,” as a declaration of triumph over the situations and circumstances which are opposed to us.

Personally, I love verse 14, “The Lord will fight for you“, who could be better to fight the battles waging around us? Yet the secret to unlocking the power of God’s willingness to fight is found in the command, “…you only need to be still

Surely it is a perilous thing to speak when God tells you to be silent.
