Exodus 14:14. “GOD will fight the battle for you. And you? You keep your mouths shut!””
Imagine your lawyer is defending you in court, but you keep butting in. I mean you just have to tell your side of the story whether it’s your turn or not right? How else would they know the other guy is lying if you don’t tell them? And really a few choice insults won’t go awry; it’s just good measure for all they’ve done!
Whether you’re in the right or not, nobody would want to hear because your conduct is unappealing. I get it though; you’re the offended party and no one feels your pain like you do. But telling your story is why you have a lawyer; someone who can passionately and coherently defend you.
It’s even better when your defense comes from the Holy One of Israel. God knows all, sees all and always wins; if He is fighting for you, what are you worried about?
Just keep still, hold your peace, keep your mouth shut and let God do His thing. It’s not easy but it’s how you win
Think About This
How can I keep myself from jumping in a muddying the waters when God is running the show?
Dear Lord, Please show me how to surrender control to You. Even control over my mouth. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
