BE STILL LET GOD FIGHT FOR YOU, CHRIST IS ALL AND IS IN ALL

(Exodus 14:14; Col 3:11).
Sovereign God, I know that You fight for Your people. And I know that You care for me and the situations I face. Right now, there are things in my life that are too big for me to handle. Please come and fight for me today. Remind me of Your presence and power.
Eliminate any kind of man-made division and difference. Ultimately, let Christ be glorified and honoured by our unity in the middle of many differences – because we define ourselves by him alone in Jesus Name.

    BE STILL LET GOD FIGHT FOR YOU KNOW THAT CHRIST IS ALL IN ALL.

    Readings:-Exodus 14:8-14 and
    Col 3:1-17

    We can see the joy of God in his creation best, perhaps, in Psalm 104. It is a song to express God’s exuberance over what he has made. The battle is not ours is of God(IIChronicles 20:15).Pandemic or know pandemic God has got His plan for us(Jeremiah 29:11).
    What a vision these quotations gives us of the local church and individual.Paul has been helping the Colossians to see what it means to be people in Christ and the impact that has on their lives.
    This truth means that when we are faced with big decisions in our work and lives, we have the freedom to choose. Of course, we should take time to wisely evaluate important decisions, but at some point, we just have to make a choice, even if we don’t “feel a peace” about the decision relying on the Holy Spirit to guide and direct us.
    In Colossians 3:9–10 we thought about the new self we have ‘put on’ as believers. Here in verse 11, though, we see that this new self isn’t just something that happens to individuals, but it’s something that applies to the whole church. We’re a new people in Jesus Christ. 
    All of us come into the local church with different backgrounds, experiences and gifts. Some are rich, others are poor; some are black, others are Asian; with no some are university-educated, others left school at sixteen. Yet, Paul says, none of these backgrounds define us when we’re gathered as church. The huge religious, cultural and social differences of that time (for example between Jew and Gentile, or slaves and free men) were no longer to mean anything for the Colossians, and the same applies to us today. The local church is a community that makes every man-made difference unimportant.
    The local church is like this, not because we’re simply ‘into equality’, but because we’re Christ’s people. He’s absolute and what he has done at the cross is final, and so every other marker of who we are has been made, relative to him, unimportant. The one thing that truly matters in the local church is Christ. He ‘is all, and is in all’ (v. 11). And we show that we take this seriously by minimising every other kind of man-made division and difference.
    In Exodus 14:13-18 is liberation prophecy and fulfilment.From Egypt,The Red Sea,the desert,the Jordan and even in Jericho, God provided protections from danger(Acts 27:22;27:44) and saved us from any peril(Psalm 116:3-4; ICor 1:4-9).
    Ultimately, Christ is glorified and honoured by our mustard seed believe,our unity in the middle of made the differences in-spite of COVID-19,because we define ourselves by him alone. This is a powerful vision for every local church community. His mercies and protection even from the past to date must continually give us confidence and great hope for victory.
