“Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to GOD, giving voice together:

“I’m singing my heart out to GOD – What a victory! He pitched horse and rider into the sea. GOD is my strength. GOD is my song, and yes! GOD is my salvation. This is the kind of GOD I have and I’m telling the world! This is the God of my father – I’m spreading the news far and wide! GOD is a fighter pure GOD, through and through.

“Pharaoh’s chariots and army He dumped in the sea. The elite of his officers He drowned in the Red Sea. Wild ocean waters poured over them; They sank like a rock in the deep blue sea. Your strong right hand, GOD, shimmers with power; Your strong right hand shatters the enemy. In Your majesty You smash Your upstart enemies. You loose Your hot anger and burn them to a crisp. At a blast from Your nostrils the waters piled up; Tumbling streams dammed up, wild oceans curdled into a swamp. The enemy spoke, ‘I’ll pursue, I’ll hunt them down, I’ll divide up the plunder, I’ll glut myself on them; I’ll pull out my sword, my fist will send them reeling.’ But You, GOD, blew with all Your might and the sea covered them. They sank like a lead weight into the majestic waters.

“Who compares with you among gods, O GOD? Who compares with You in power, in Holy majesty, in awesome praises, wonder-working God? You stretched out Your right hand and the earth swallowed up the enemy. But the people You redeemed, You led in merciful love; You guided them under Your protection to Your holy pasture.” ~ Exodus 15:1-13, The Message

Dear one, are your enemies in hot pursuit? Does it feel like they are gaining ground, about to overtake you? Then remember this: You are a child of the Most High God. You have been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, consumed by His love, transformed by His Holy Spirit. Your enemy has no authority over you. He can chase all he wants, but just when he thinks he’s gotcha, God, in an awesome display of His power, will blast from His nostrils and send him reeling.

Who compares with our God? None. No, not one.

So, like Moses, sing your heart out to God, for He is your strength. He is your song, and yes! He is your salvation.

SELAH. Pause and think about it.

Father, What an awesome God You are, mighty in power, merciful in love. Nothing is too difficult for You. You promise Your children that when the enemy comes in like a flood, You Yourself will hold up a standard against him. Thank You Lord. I lift up my friends to You, those who are overwhelmed, those who are facing a financial crisis, a broken heart, those who are severely depressed or have given into bitterness. Lord, You know their hearts. You know their struggles. You see their pain. Open their eyes to see the graphic description of You parting the Red Sea so that Your children could pass to the other side, while the enemy drowned in his pursuit. We rejoice in Your love and in Your faithfulness. Fill us with Your hope and Your assurance today. Bless You, Father.
