The Strength of God

Exodus 15

Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.


When I read this passage, it makes me think about the fact that when God promises something, He delivers.  If you have faith in Him, all things are possible. He will take care of the people in your life that are causing you grief if you only keep the faith.

It’s a hard thing to do as human beings. We are tempted to get back at others and not let them get away with it. But, God calls us to love our enemies especially. If we do that, God will take care of the rest.

As God did to the chariots and charioteers, He will cast the people aside who do not believe and the ones who do will be spared. The Lord is our strength and song! Know that He is always there with you as you deal with these people and circumstances in your life. God knows what you are going through  – talk wtih Him often.  Let God take away your worries and let Him provide for you.

Your weaknesses are God’s strengths – let Him strengthen you and accept His help.  When you are weak, He will make you strong if you have faith and hope in Him.
