“And the waters covered their adversaries; not one of the was left. Then they believed His words; they sang His praise.” Psalm 106:12
God led the children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt and led them to the Red sea which appeared to be a dead end. The people began to panic when they saw pharoah and his army pursuing them. They said to Moses, “is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness” Exodus 14:11. They further grumbled saying “I wish we never left our slavery in Egypt.” They didn’t believe yet God delivered them anyways for His name sake by parting the Red sea and drowning their adversaries.
Afterwards standing on the other side of the Red sea they “sang His praise” and worshipped. Isn’t it easy to “sing His praise” standing on the other side? What if we had faith before the deliverance and learned to sing His praise standing between pharoah and the sea with seemingliy no way of escape? Much easier talked about then done. That kind of peace only comes from being steeped in the Word of God, watching daily at His gates. The Word of God is living and active, and when I open my ear to God he graciously speaks and living water begins to flow in our hearts. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of Christ.” Let your faith grow today as you spend time in the living and active Word of God, and find yourself “singing His praise” in the middle of your uncertainties.
Lord, please help us today to open our ears to You. You promise that faith comes by hearing Your word, let our faith grow today to face any challenge, mountain, hill, and valley in our way. There are gems to lay hold of no matter what part of the journey we find ourselves in. Thank you for another day of life. Amen
