  The Joyous Chorus

February 1, 2023
Daily Reading – Exodus 15-16 / Matthew 20


Exodus 15:2 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.


    My dad was a whistler and maybe I got it from him. When I am having a good day, I sort of get a tune in my head and it often comes out as a whistle. I was told once by an elderly lady in our church to stop that, you are not supposed to whistle in church. I mean no disrespect to that dear lady, but sometimes I just can’t help myself.

    Moses and the children of Israel have just watched God defeat their enemy. For maybe the first time in a long time, they actually feel safe. What happens, singing breaks forth. There is a joyous chorus in their heart that just must come out. From Exodus 15:1-19 we read the words of this song about how God is their Saviour, deliverer, and strength. Yet as I read the words, it sounds like the Christians salvation song as well.

    It begins; “The LORD is my strength and song,” and for anyone who has been saved from their sinfulness and set on a path toward heaven, well He has become the new song in our hearts. It goes on to say; “he is become my salvation: he is my God.” How true is that? Through Jesus’ death and resurrection He is our salvation and we should be grateful to call Him our God. The next line says; “and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God.” At the moment of salvation, God takes up residence in our life in the person of the Holy Spirit which should make us sing out, “and I will exalt him.” 


    Sing the praises of your Lord and Saviour. Does it make a difference? Psalm 40:3 “And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.” 

What song does the world hear you singing?
