January 11, 2021 – Exodus 14-18

God continues to make good on his promise to bring his people out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. He does so, largely, through miracles that he performed on behalf of his people: the crossing of the Red Sea, the destruction of the Egyptian troops, the water at Marah made sweet, the quail, the bread from heaven, water from the rock, and the victory over the Amalekites. Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, upon seeing all that God had done, declared, “Now I know that the Lord is greater than all gods” (18:11). Indeed!


Psalm 136 is the “for his steadfast love endures forever” Psalm. Every verse ends with this declaration of God’s steadfast love. How is that love displayed? Well, it is displayed in the mighty acts and miracles God performs on behalf of his people, and the Psalmist, reflecting on the time of the exodus, names them, one after another.


Moses had said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today” (14:13). God worked through miracles and mighty acts. Biblical Christianity is a miraculous thing. We don’t sit around waiting for nor do we demand miracles from God. But our God is a miracle working God. Having performed the miracles of the exodus, God has done much more, and the greatest work of all is the salvation he has provided for us in his Son, Jesus.
