Don’t Forget

Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power, … shatters the enemy. – Exodus 15:6


Today’s verse is from the song the Israelites sang when God delivered them from the Egyptians. They walked across the Red Sea on dry land, then the waters returned and drowned the Egyptian army. Israel rejoiced at this deliverance. But soon they forgot this great miracle and were more concerned about where the next meal was coming from.

You may wonder at how quickly they forgot. When facing hard times, it’s easy to doubt that God will come through for you again, no matter how many times He provides. God is love. He is able to do all things. He has glorious power. He’s the same God that held back the waters of the Red Sea, shut the mouths of lions for Daniel, and stopped the fire from burning three of His followers.  And the same Spirit dwells in you (Romans 8:11 and 1 Corinthians 6:19). For most Christians, it’s a life-long task of laying aside fear, doubt and unbelief and to fully let go and trust God for every need. Compound it with how easy it is to botch things up, you may wonder if God’s going to give up on you and let you wallow in your mistakes for the rest of your life. For Israel, it was wandering around the mountain forty years. Learn from them. God loved them and desired to take care of them, just as He loves and cares for you. Rest in His love. Pray that the eyes of citizens and leaders alike will be opened to His great love, provision and salvation in Jesus.

Today’s Verse: Exodus 15:6

Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,
    your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
