This is Our God!

Some deny Him. Others ignore Him. A few despise Him. Many diminish Him. Even those who believe sometimes doubt Him. But think again! Moses’ wonderful song after the incident at the Red Sea says it all. This is our God!

Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:
“I will sing to the Lord,
   
for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
   
he has hurled into the sea.
2 “The Lord is my strength and my defense;
   
he has become my salvation.

He is my God, and I will praise him,
   
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

3 The Lord is a warrior;
  
the Lord is his name.

4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his army
   
he has hurled into the sea.

the best of Pharaoh’s officers
   
are drowned in the Red Sea.

5 The deep waters have covered them;
   
they sank to the depths like a stone.

6 Your right hand, Lord,
   
was majestic in power.

Your right hand, Lord,
   
shattered the enemy.
7 “In the greatness of your majesty
   
you threw down those who opposed you.

You unleashed your burning anger;
   
it consumed them like stubble.

8 By the blast of your nostrils
   
the waters piled up.
The surging waters stood up like a wall;
   
the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea.

9 The enemy boasted,
   
‘I will pursue, I will overtake them.
I will divide the spoils;
   
I will gorge myself on them.
I will draw my sword
  
and my hand will destroy them.’

10 But you blew with your breath,
   
and the sea covered them.

They sank like lead
   
in the mighty waters.

11 Who among the gods
   
is like you, Lord?

Who is like you—
   
majestic in holiness,

awesome in glory,
   
working wonders?
12 “You stretch out your right hand,
   
and the earth swallows your enemies.

13 In your unfailing love you will lead
   
the people you have redeemed.

In your strength you will guide them
   
to your holy dwelling.

14 The nations will hear and tremble;
   
anguish will grip the people of Philistia.

15 The chiefs of Edom will be terrified,
   
the leaders of Moab will be seized with trembling,

the people of Canaan will melt away;

16 terror and dread will fall on them.

By the power of your arm
   
they will be as still as a stone—
until your people pass by, Lord,
  
until the people you bought pass by.

17 You will bring them in and plant them
   
on the mountain of your inheritance—
the place, Lord,
you made for your dwelling,
   
the sanctuary, Lord, your hands established.
18 “The Lord reigns
   
for ever and ever.”
