Exodus 15:1-19 “The Song of Moses”

“I will sing to the LORD, for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!”

Exodus 15:1 (NKJV)

Do you ever wake up thinking about a certain song? Music is an important part of life. We sing love songs, fun songs, Christmas carols, worship songs, and hymns. Some songs tell a story. Putting words to music helps us to remember them. This was the purpose of the Psalms. They were words set to music, often to praise God, to pray to Him, or to speak of His wondrous works. Too bad we don’t know the tunes!

After the LORD parted the Red Sea so that the children of Israel escaped, Moses wrote a song to commemorate the event. It is a celebration of God drowning the Egyptian army! But it also speaks of the LORD being their strength, their song, and their salvation. When they saw their oppressors wiped out, they could not help but praise the LORD and tell of His marvelous deeds!

“Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”

Exodus 15:11 (NKJV)

I love the worship time in our Sunday services. I stand at the back, worshiping with our congregation. But I also love to watch everyone standing, often with hands raised, singing wholeheartedly to God. We were made for this! Getting our eyes off of ourselves and onto our Savior reminds us that we are His children, and He is our Mighty God. No problem is too big or too small for Him to handle. Such worship songs are the spontaneous expression of our love to the One who has done it all!

“Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth.”

Psalm 96:1 (NKJV)

Pick a favorite worship song today (or create one of your own) and sing to the Lord. If birds can sing their songs, then so can we! You will find that your troubles melt away, and you are filled with the joy and peace of His presence.
