Zip your Mouth

The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.


The Israelites were gripped with fear because the Egyptians are coming after them!

“Is it because there were no more graves in Egypt that’s why you brought us here in the wilderness to die, huh Moses? Nang-aano ka e ha?! Sumosobra ka na e ha?!”

We cannot blame them. Takot sila. Minsan, kahit tayo ay nakakaramdam din ng takot. Bills kept coming, andyan na rin ang mga deadlines, mababang grades sa class card, and a lot of many other problems pressing us. Sobrang nakakabahala.

And because of our fear our mouth speaks of, instead of prayer and praise, worries and doubt. Madami tayong nasasabi. Madami tayong naiisip. Nababahala tayo at di mapakali, pati ang bibig ay di na natitigil.

Yet Moses comforted the Israelites with this: the Lord will fight for you while you keep silent. Manahimik. Wag mag-alala. Si Lord na ang bahala. Kikilos pa rin si Lord kahit wala tayong ‘dada’.

Aha! Moment: Zip your mouth.
