Topic: Saluting God In Song [Wednesday July 26, 2017]
Text: Exodus 15:1-11
Key Verse: “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Exodus 15:11).
Bible scholars have reserved a singular place in history for Moses’ hymn in worship of the Lord after He miraculously parted the Red sea to deliver the Israelites from the threatening Egyptian forces. Moses, the servant of God, appointed to lead Israel, burst into an epic poem which some say is the oldest recorded song in the world, coming ahead of the great songs written by King David, Asaph his choirmaster and Solomon the son of David.
The focus of Moses’ praise is God Himself. It is no wonder therefore, that this humble man of God mentions the majestic name of God “the LORD” ten times in this presentation of worship. Moses alludes to the greatness of God and says He alone will be His God, to whom alone he will give praise. According to him, prodigiousness of God’s power manifested in the phenomenal arrest of nature, namely the roaring sea and the destruction of the army of a world power.
