Exodus 14:14 — Having crossed the sea, the Israelites looked up and saw Pharaoh’s army approaching. We’re told that they were “greatly frightened,” and took it out on Moses. Moses’ response: "Do not fear... The Lord will fight for you.” In 14:25 we read, “…the Egyptians sounded the retreat before Israel, because the Lord was fighting for them against the Egyptians.” (Lord, when I depend on myself and my strength I will fail. When I struggle with my own power to overcome temptation and sin I will fail. When I draw from my own storehouse of strength to find virtue I will fall short. Lord, give me the grace to trust that You will fight for me, that You will lead me through the raging sea, that You will protect me in my weakness. Lord, fight for me, lead me, protect me, for I am Yours and I give myself totally to Your strong arms today.)
