- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
14:13 Moses answered not these fools according to their folly: Instead of chiding he comforts them, and with an admirable pretence of mind, not disheartened either by the threatenings of Egypt, or the tremblings of Israel, stills their murmuring, Fear ye not, It is our duty, when we cannot get out of our troubles, yet to get above our fears, so that they may only serve to quicken our prayers and endeavours, but may not prevail to silence our faith and hope. Stand still, and think not to save yourselves either by fighting or flying; wait God's orders, and observe them; Compose yourselves, by an entire confidence in God, into a peaceful prospect of the great salvation God is now about to work for you. Hold your peace, you need not so much as give a shout against the enemy: the work shall be done without any concurrence of yours. In times of great difficulty, it is our wisdom to keep our spirits calm, quiet, and sedate, for then we are in the best frame both to do our own work, and to consider the work of God.

The book gives hope to those that could have lost it or to those who are praying to have their prayers answered Amen

I am going into a custody battle soon with my ex husband who is an alcoholic. He has now gotten out of jail and is stable enough to hire an attorney to fight me for overnight visitations. I've been contracting my attorney who pretty much told me that if he has straightened up, then he WILL probably get her. I know he s not straightened up and have been racking my brain on ways to prove that. 2 weeks ago, my daughter's Sunday school teacher gave her class all a shirt with this verse written on the back. She had worn out for a while but she was in the flour playing and it caught my eye..... that verse was for me. I don't have to do anything but STAND. STAND STRONG IN CHRIST AND HE WILL FIGHT THIS BATTLE FOR ME! It's so comforting and has taken so much stress off of me since then.

This verse is courgeous

Our God is able. He is always there for his children, especially in moments of hardship and trial. To him be glory for ever. Amen

The word of GOD is tried and tested. How do I know because I have tried and tested it.

Exodus 14 is my master key for prayer, because I believe in the word of GOD.

To God be the glory that we have a father that never sleeps even in times of trouble, many a time the children of God are always in one problem or the other, but in as far as we have God that never sleeps, he will always be there for us to take us across the red sea.

IT TAKES FAITH IN THE LORD TO STAND STILL BETWEEN RED SEA AND THE EGYPTIANS

I love how this verse shows the complete deliverance which only God can give.
