"…Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will show to you this day…" (Exodus 14:13)
Picture in your mind a small child crying hysterically from a tiny wound; a nearly invisible shard of glass, a sliver of wood, or a thorn from a thistle has pierced a little hand or foot. The young one finds it nearly impossible to quit crying and obey the adult command, "Stand still so I can pull it out!" The child's impulse is to run away from the scary tweezers, to kick, to scream and flail, to flop on the floor - to do anything but stand still, yet stand still he must and endure the painful extraction in order to avoid further suffering and heal.
At least the child knew there was a real problem embedded in the flesh, and came to the right place for help. We grown-ups aren't always so cognizant. What we have is worse than a sliver. What we suffer from is an invisible thorn - a stubborn sin nature embedded in the flesh, and if anything is going to save us from that, we will have to "stand still and see the salvation of the LORD". Like children, we need to admit we are helpless and cannot save ourselves. We need to stand still and submit to God's remedy in Christ.
