Power with Purpose

Psalms 114:1-8 :

When Israel went out of Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a people of foreign language,
Judah became his sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.
The sea saw it, and fled.
The Jordan was driven back.
The mountains skipped like rams,
the little hills like lambs.
What was it, you sea, that you fled?
You Jordan, that you turned back?
You mountains, that you skipped like rams;
you little hills, like lambs?
Tremble, you earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool of water,
the flint into a spring of waters.

I didn't mention it last time, but this section of the Psalms is well known by Jewish believers. It's a part of a group of songs called "The Hallel." It's festival music.

In this song, we are reminded of the power that God used to take Israel out of Egypt and lead them. Even the sea and rocks gave way to God's power. It's pretty fun to brag about your God when you know that there's absolutely nothing that can stop Him. This fact about God's power has been clearly demonstrated in the part of the Bible that we have read so far. The very first verse of the Bible makes it clear that there is nothing that can possibly be more powerful than God.

Israel's involvement with God, reminds us that God has a purpose behind His use of Power. God took His own people out of a land where they were helpless slaves, and lead them to an empty place without any food or water and proceeded to keep them alive. He even made the sea part and rocks melt. When you have a God like that, you have more than anyone else. Israel has a good reason to brag about Him, and so do we.
