15 WHEN THE LORD IS ON YOUR SIDE…

15. WHEN THE LORD IS ON YOUR SIDE, THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR.
Exodus 14:10,14 – “And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So they were very afraid, and the children of Israel cried out to the LORD…’The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.'”
In general, the Israelites had weak faith and were scared; in contrast, Moses had strong faith and was fearless. Lack of faith and fear are always related. God provided them a way of escape to their difficulty, as He still does for us today (cf. I Cor. 10:13). If you allow fear to conquer you, cripple you, or turn you into a complainer, your faith is exposed as weak–trust and obey, friends (cf. Matt. 10:28)!
