And Moses said to the people, Fear you not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will show to you to day…
During the American Civil War an English ship was boarded by the crew of a confederate cruiser. They drew their swords. But the gallant English Captain Williams marched forward and said, "Gentlemen, I am a simple sailor, but do not forget that behind this flag which I hold in my hand lies all the power of the army and navy of England. If you strike me you strike the might of England." So we may be simple men and women, but when we are engaged in the Lord's work we do not stand alone.
(G. Howard James.)
