He Fights For You
Over the weekend I was part of the kitchen crew at Camp Ch-Yo-Ca as we hosted a high school retreat. After a cheesy-chicken Mexican dinner, we began the cleaning process. The combination of cheese and chips stuck to the pan like superglue. We scrubbed and scrubbed, but no progress was made. As I said these words, “Let’s put some Dawn in the pan and let it sit overnight. Tomorrow it will be easy,” the Lord spoke to me.
My mind went to Exodus 14:14 which simply says, “The Lord himself will fight for you. So stay calm.” I don’t know what you’ve been through or are going through, but chances are it’s something and those “somethings” can stick to us like crusty cheese on a pan. We can use our own power to scrub and scrape it away, but God simply says, “I’ve got it. Go to bed and rest.” What a precious thought. God will take your worry, hurt, shame, regret, trouble, heartbreak—your “something”—and fight for you if you let Him. I hope you do. Have a great week.
