Exodus 15

Today's Passage: Exodus 15

My brain is weird in the middle of the night. On multiple occasions, I have composed a song; either its lyrics or its melody line and held it in my half-awake/half-asleep mind until dawn breaks. Somehow though, no matter how burnt into my mind it is throughout the night, the morning time makes me forget completely how it went. Songs in the night, for some strange reason, get forgotten in the morning.

In Exodus 15, Moses just wrote a song. A hymn of praise, thanks, and celebration to His God who just delivered the people of Israel from the dark night of the Red Sea and the captivity of Egypt. This song contains all the important elements of a worship song: God’s glory, His power, His character, His works, His love, His unrivaled reign. It’s a beautiful song! Hopefully, this was a song that Moses did not soon forget.

Isn’t that like us though: to compose a song to God in the night when we are often in deep need or while the memory of His faithfulness is still fresh, only to forget it once the morning sun rises? Let us not, like my feeble nighttime mind, forget to thank God after the seas have been parted or after our deliverance has been established. Let us continually, like Moses, always sing words like this, day and night, to our God who is ever faithful: “The LORD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will exalt him.” (v. 2)

He is not only the God in our darkest night, He is the God of the new morning sun too.
