Reflection on Exodus 15:1-18

Scripture

Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in power

Your right hand, O Lord, smashes the enemy.

Observation

The people of Israel sing a song of praise to the Lord, celebrating their deliverance from slavery and the supernatural parting of the waters.

The Lord shows unfailing love to His people, but he crushes His enemies. He has promised a land to His people, a sanctuary for His dwelling place.

Application

What a deliverance that was for the people of God! The Lord did amazing miracles – plagues, provision of gold, silver and clothing, the crossing of the Red Sea, and finally the destruction of Pharaoh’s army.

The Lord s powerful and He smashes His enemies.

We need to recall that our fight is real, but we do not fight against flesh and blood. Our warfare is in the heavenly realms.

When Jesus died on the cross, He destroyed the power of satan. Yes, the devil can still oppose us and annoy us, even keep us in bondage. But Jesus has won the victory. Any power that satan holds over believers comes because they consent to it.

As a believer in Christ, I can claim victory over all the threats and annoyances of the enemy. God’s right hand has won the victory.

Prayer

Hallelujah! Thank you Lord for the power of your right hand. In Christ you have won the victory over sin, death and satan. I claim this victory now in my own life. I command all evil spirits to flee in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
