Celebrating God

Exodus 18-20

Moses told his father-in-law about everything the Lord had done to Pharaoh and the Egyptians for Israel’s sake and about all the hardships they had met along the way and how the Lord had saved them” —Exodus 18:8.

If anyone has worked through the series of studies called “Experiencing God” he might remember the section on signposts. The author reminds us of the importance of looking back on how God has worked as a reminder of God’s faithfulness and how God uses even the most impossible circumstances to bring glory to his name and to fulfill his purposes in the lives of his children.

Moses shared with Jethro the story of Egypt—the impossible made possible because that’s how God wanted it to be.

Then Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law. Brought a burnt offering and other sacrifices to God, and Aaron come with all the elders of Israel to eat bread with Moses’ father-in-law in the presence of the Lord” —Exodus 18:12.

The result was worship. And the worship was shared not just with those in the immediate household, but with others. God was worshipped and a party was held in “the presence of the Lord.”

Celebrating God is a good exercise. We celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, Independence Day, the Super Bowl, and a host of other special occasions but how often do we gather together just to celebrate God, to talk about the wonderful things he has done for us, and to share his marvelous works in our corporate and individual lives.

I’m not sure how to have a “God” party. But I’m thinking on it. Any suggestions?


  1. Sharing His praises with your friends (and readers) is a good start. Thanks for this reminder, dear Lynda.

  2. God party at Lynda's! Sounds like an awesome time:)
