When we are waiting to be delivered from something in our life do we try to be so proactive or do we allow God to work?  Sometimes we think God can’t handle it so we throw our actions in.   I love in Exodus when Moses told the Israelites to be still, the Lord will fight for you.  If you are waiting on the Lord to move on your behalf, did you ever think he was waiting on you to be ready?  God keeps his promises and never fails.  It is us who fail him in our disbelief and over anxiousness.  Waiting on the Lord is a form of obedience.

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.  The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  Exodus 14:13-14
