Exodus 15:6-11 NLT
“Your right hand, O LORD, is glorious in power. Your right hand, O LORD, smashes the enemy.
In the greatness of your majesty, you overthrow those who rise against you. You unleash your blazing fury; it consumes them like straw.
At the blast of your breath, the waters piled up! The surging waters stood straight like a wall; in the heart of the sea the deep waters became hard.
“The enemy boasted, ‘I will chase them and catch up with them. I will plunder them and consume them. I will flash my sword; my powerful hand will destroy them.’
But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
“Who is like you among the gods, O LORD— glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders?”
Reflection . . .
This section of the Song of Moses declares the mighty power of God in a life threatening, humanly impossible situation. The Lord delivered His people out of slavery in Egypt demonstrating His power and greatness to the nations. For many years and generations following the events of their deliverance, nations marvelled at the power of God even though they didn’t see those events take place first hand. The words, “Who is like you . . . ?” are echoed through the centuries in great events demonstrating God’s power and greatness, none greater than the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Some wonder why we don’t see great and marvellous demonstrations of God’s power and might today like we read in the Bible. Great and wonderful things do happen today but many don’t have the faith to see them. We live by the words, “Seeing is believing”, but when it comes to God’s economy . . .
