Scripture to Read: Exodus 15:1–13
We read in Exodus 14:30–31 that our Lord God saved Israel from Egypt, and Israel finally “saw the great power which the Lord had used against the Egyptians.” Also, “the people feared the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in His servant Moses.” It took ten plagues, being delivered out of Egypt, then being delivered from the Egyptian army through the Red Sea before Israel finally got it. Of course, God gave us Himself through our Lord Jesus Christ to set everyone free from the bondage of sin, but so many people still don’t get it today. Once we finally “get it,” then we know that God alone is worthy to be glorified and praised. Even Jesus, when He was entering Jerusalem and all the people were praising Him, told the Pharisees in Luke 19:39–40, “Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” 40 But Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!’” The stones will cry out in praise to our King if we, as His children, do not. Moses and the Israelites knew God was worthy of praise. After being delivered, they sang an incredible praise song to God. In Exodus 15:1–13, we read about how awesome our God is. God is “highly exalted,” “my strength and song,” “my salvation,” “a warrior,” “majestic in power,” “majestic in holiness,” “awesome in praises,” “working wonders,” and “lovingkindness.” This is why we worship our Lord—because He is all of this and so much more.
