Back to the Future
When Israel went out from Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
2 Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.
3 The sea looked and fled;
Jordan turned back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams,
the hills like lambs.
5 What ails you, O sea, that you flee?
O Jordan, that you turn back?
6 O mountains, that you skip like rams?
O hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 who turns the rock into a pool of water,
the flint into a spring of water.
Praise God for what He did, leading the Israelites out of Egypt, and get a glimpse of the eternity that awaits!
- How much do you celebrate the sovereignty and power of God?
- Do you have an eternal perspective that is informed by what God has done in the past? Do you know anything of what awaits you in heaven? The Bible is not silent on this.
- Is the story of the Exodus old hat to you? Ask God to restore for you the wonder of what He did there. Praise God using the words of Psalm 114.
