To celebrate National Lutheran Schools Week, we have collected devotions written by elementary school children. The following was written by a student named Evan from Immanuel Lutheran School in Macomb.
“The Lord will fight for you; you only need to be still” (Exodus 14:14).
This verse means to me that no one needs to worry because Jesus will fight for us, and we just need to relax and wait. It’s kind of like in nature if there is a lion and his cubs: the lion will fight for his cubs and the cubs only need to be still. Or in the Bible it refers to a shepherd and his flock: the shepherd will protect his flock from animals and whatever else tries to hurt his flock.
This is just as the Lord has done for us. He has fought our battles for us and we only need to be still. So to sum it up: “The Lord will fight for you; you only need to be still.”
