Siesta Scripture #3

Here we go, into our 3rd verse. 

I am doing the Beth Moore study, "A Woman's Heart - God's Dwelling Place" & this was one of the scriptures for the day.  When I read it, I was like ... WOW, I love this!!! So without further ado, my scripture #3 to memorize is:

"The Lord will FIGHT for you...
you need only to be still"
-Exodus 14:14

I adore this... We hear the verse, "Be still & know I am God" all the time.  This one reminds me of that verse, but it has that little extra UMPH for me... the image of God FIGHTING for us!  Isnt that a pretty cool image to think of?  And all we have to do?  Just stop - get out of the way - quick messing things up!

I keep thinking of two people fighting & someone jumps in the middle - trying to handle the situation - but the people are still swinging over the arms trying to hold them back... kicks being thrown around the body of the person in the middle.

Can you picture that person in the middle being God?  And he's just looking at us saying, "just be still!"  I'll take care of the fight for you... the fight against lonliness... the fight against finances... the fight against sickness... the fight against that sneaky, stupid devil....

So be encouraged today friends!!!!  We have the #1 Prize Fighter on our side... fighting for US!  We just need to be still....


  1. Rebecca, thanks for posting these verses. This morning, I decided to print this and put it up on my bulletin board at school. I need to surround myself with Scripture - especially where I work. HUGS!

  2. RJ,
    I LOVE this verse!!! She has some amazing Key Verses listed in this study. I love that we start with them.

    I can so see God fighting for us, but boy that be still part..... I'm learning to do that more and more.

    I'll be posting my verse in a little bit as well. I'm LOVING SSMT!!

    Have a Blessed day friend,

  8. I love this verse. It reminds me of one I memorized last year (2 Chronicles 20:17). Also, reminds me of Kari Jobe's song - You Are For Me. Love it.
