Hold Your Peace!
Bible Passage(s): Exodus 14
Memory Verse: "And Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace." Exodus 14:13-14
The story of the children of Israel as they commenced their journey from Egypt to the promised land is very apt for this season and the second month of the year 2016. As the children of Israel left Egypt, it soon dawned on Pharaoh and the Egyptians the implication of letting them go! They asked themselves in verses 5 and 6: "Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?" Then they pursued them with 'six hundred choice chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt with captains over every one of them.' This in a bid to get them back into slavery in Egypt.
