I Will Sing Unto the Lord
Exodus 15:1 ¶ Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.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.
This poetic utterance is the beginning of The Song of Moses, found in Exodus 15. It praises God for His deliverance form Pharaoh’s army when they crossed the Red Sea on dry land. This is when Miriam led the women in song and dance, repeating that the Lord had triumphed gloriously by casting the horses and their riders into the sea (Ex. 15:21).
We also can praise God continually for delivering us from the bondage of spiritual Egypt, by covering our sins with the precious blood of Jesus (1 Pe. 1:18-19).
The Song of Moses became a part of the Hebrew liturgy and was repeated in the Psalms.
Psalms 118:14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
Isaiah sang this Song of Moses as he was rejoicing that captives would soon be returning from Assyrian captivity.
Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
We should sing it today as we remember we were under the burden of sin and realize that our deliverance came from God and God alone. He and He alone is our salvation.
As the days grow more violent and evil, we can trust and not be afraid in the Lord’s protection. When perplexing times come, we trust in the Lord with all of our heart and we don’t lean on our limited understanding (Is. 55:8-9), but we rely totally in the wisdom of the Lord (Pr. 3:5).
When the cupboard gets bare and our resources are slim, we can trust in the One who promised to never leave or forsake us (He. 13:5). He clothes the lilies and He feeds the sparrow and He’ll certainly take care of us, His children (Mt. 6:30).
As we advance in age and our physical strength decreases we can thank our Lord that He has become our strength. As the apostle Paul proclaimed, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Php. 4:13).
As we rejoice that the Lord has become our strength we begin to sing to Him because He also has become our song. We find ourselves constantly making melody in our hearts as we sing psalms and hymns unto Him (Eph. 5:19).
When the doctor gives a negative report, we trust in the One by whose stripes we were healed (Is. 53:5; 1 Pe. 2:24).
Up until Calvary, the ultimate praise that Israel could render was in remembrance of when God became their salvation by rolling back the waters of the Red Sea.
Our ultimate description of God’s power is when He became our salvation by condescending from heaven and taking upon Himself our human nature that He might take upon Himself the penalty that He had prescribed for sin.
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
When saints from all the ages gather together at the throne, we are going to raise a thunderous song of praise to our God and Savior.
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
“We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.” - -- Harry A. Ironside
