The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14
My shoulders are sagging, my arms aching, my knees buckling. So very, very tired.
The task before me is enormous. The result is far from sure. I have made but scant progress. The weight of this battle is heavy on my back; heavy on my mind; heavy on my heart.
But I must plod forward. It is the work I must do.
I lift my arm. It falls back to my side. I place my foot out. It falls to the ground once again. I crumble to the floor and weep.
I can't do it, Lord.
I wrinkle my brow. You KNOW, Father?
Yes, My child. I know you can't do it.
I lift my eyes and arm to the heavens. Then why have You put me in the middle of it?
Because, My child, while you cannot do it, I can. When you work on your own power, you work against Me. You must stop striving and let Me do the work. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.
Tears well in my eyes. Yes, Lord. You do it. I will be still. I will rest in You and allow Your power to accomplish what I cannot.
Good, My child. For that is the only way you will win this fight.
Yes, Lord. How I wish I had known this sooner.
So do I, My child. So do I.
