God Fights For Us

“He is my Defender; I will not be defeated.” Psalm 62:6

I have a question for you. What do you think God is doing when you find yourself in a real bind? When the lifeboat springs a leak? When the rip cord snaps and the chute doesn’t open? When the checkbook is already overdrawn and there are still bills that are due? I know what we usually do. Bite our nails, pace the floor, take pills, get gnarly with the family. But what does God do? He fights for us. He steps into the ring and points us to our corner and takes over.

“Remain calm; the Lord will fight for you.” Exodus 14:14

It’s His job to fight; our job is to trust. Just trust. Not manipulate, not coerce, not even question beyond a certain point. Our job is summed up in an old hymn, “Trust and Obey, for there’s no other way.” And then wait.
