Are you confused and not sure what to do or where to turn?
“Who among the gods is like you, O LORD?
Who is like You–
Majestic in holiness,
Awesome in glory,
You stretched out Your right hand
And the earth swallowed them.
In Your unfailing love You will lead
The people You have redeemed.
In Your strength You will guide them
To Your holy dwelling.” (Exodus 15:11-13)
When Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to God, He had just saved them from the pursing Egyptians. God opened a path through the Red Sea so that the people could walk to the other side as if on dry ground. Then, when the Egyptians followed, God brought the water back into place and drowned them. This miraculous event caused praise to well up in the hearts of the people.
Praise doesn’t always flow naturally from our lips. We’re good at asking God for things. We may even be good at thanking Him for His blessings. But praise requires us to meditate on the character of God and the actions that reveal His character.
Hear again what Moses proclaimed:
· You are majestic in holiness.
· You are awesome in glory.
· You work wonders.
· You stretch out Your hand to defeat the enemy.
· Your love is unfailing.
· You lead Your people.
· You redeem Your people.
· You are strong.
· You guide Your people.
God still works wonders, defeating the enemy and leading His people. His character never changes. What was true for Moses and the Israelites is true for us today. God is holy. His glory fills the earth. God is faithful. He is our redeemer. God is strong. He is our guide.
Holy, Awesome and Almighty God, I will praise You for who You are. Help me to meditate on Your great attributes. Indeed, no one is like You. Amen
