Psalm 118:14

Mar 27, 2024    Pastor Mike Fanning

After God powerfully and miraculously delivered Israel from bondage in Egypt through the power of the ten plagues and then through the split waters of the Red Sea, Moses sang a song of praise to God. One line from that song: “The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. “(Exodus 15:2). As great as that physical salvation was for Israel, so much greater is our spiritual (and eventually physical) salvation in Jesus Christ! In Jesus Christ, we have a new heart and a new strength in order that we might live a new life of victory and love to the glory of God! Friend, continue to surrender daily to Christ and abide in Him as the source of your strength! And choose to sing and pray songs of praise and thanksgiving to Him for His great salvation… Go ahead, do it even now! 

PASSAGE: Psalm 118:14 - "The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation."

PAUSE: The Psalmist had a personal relationship with his Heavenly Father. Notice carefully 3x he says my strength, song, and salvation. 3x, he says, the psalmists make it personal. Is your relationship with your Heavenly Father so strong that you can say he is your strength, song, and salvation?

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I want to have a song! A song that acknowledges our relationship together. Be my strength and be my salvation today!
