Exodus 14:13 ".... Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will shew to you today.... The Lord will fight for you..."

Standing still is never easy. We are anxious to get moving. We want progress, and we want it now. Many times, God shows us His power, but we must stand still. God assures Israel His help is coming soon. He tells them they will soon see that He will fight for them. They would do no battle that day. They would not be crushed by the army of Egypt. God will fight for them, but His command to them is "stand still." I'm sure it was a hard stand, with the Red Sea on one side, and Pharaoh's army on the other.

Many times, we too feel our options are also limited, but the Lord says, "... Fear ye not, stand still." Standing still may take all your strength, but the victory will come because He has promised to fight for us. Our job is trusting Him and holding steady.

I Thess. 5:25. "Brethren, pray for us." Today, we will use these few lines to say our goodbyes to a very talented and faithful family. The Stephen Delong Family have moved to Bedford, Indiana. They have been a blessing to our church in many ways. We will miss Yvonne on the organ, and all her help in other departments. We will miss Stephen's ready help in so many areas. We will miss the children. We wish them Godspeed.

We also say a farewell to Bro. And Sister Don Delong. They have served the church and school faithfully and tirelessly for many years. They have moved to Westfield, Indiana. We just received word yesterday that they will also be leaving the church. We tearfully say goodbye to this talented and faithful family.

Gen. 24:15: "And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at eventide...."

In a world that revolves around instant messaging, texts, cell phones, email, Facebook, Twitter, and social interaction of all kinds, we find we must have some quiet time to meditate on the things of God. Isaac went out into the field. While he didn't have the electronic media frenzy we are faced with today, he surely had herdsmen, servants, and many other distractions of everyday nomadic life to deal with. He surely knew also that his father had sent his servant to bring home a bride for him. Perhaps he was anxious about the choice that would be made for him. Whatever the reason, he chose eventide for his quiet time, and the open field for the place.

Our quiet time and meditation will also prepare us for what lies ahead in our lives as well. The song writer said, "Are you anxious what shall be tomorrow? Tell it to Jesus." Quiet meditation is so vital to us. It gives God a chance to whisper to us His love and assurance. Choose your time and place to meditate today!
