Psalms 114:1



The Bible says in Psalm 114:1-2, “When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;[2] Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.” These verses are a reminder of what God did for the children of Israel. It took many miracles for the Lord to get them out of Egypt. That whole situation was symbolic of the salvation that every believer receives when Jesus saved each of our souls. Egypt symbolized the world. Just as the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, we are slaves to this world’s systems and ideas. Only Jesus can deliver us from such a slavery, and it takes miracles too. God aligns the circumstances of our lives, using many other people, and at just the right moment the Spirit convicts us of sin, and Jesus visits us and saves our soul when we call out to Him. Once tat happens, we are headed to the Promised Land: heaven our final home.


The Bible says in Psalm 114:3-6, “The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.[4] The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.[5] What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?[6] Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?” The Israelites not only crossed the Red Sea, but they also crossed the Jordan. The Jordan was the last obstacle, and they met that obstacle like all the rest of the obstacles: by faith and doing what the Lord said. When the Lord decides to do something, even nature obeys Him. The mountains, the rivers, and the hills: they all obey the will of God. Do you have obstacles to overcome? Pray and keep on praying. The Lord can do anything.


The Bible says in Psalm 114:7-8, “Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;[8] Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.” One more miracle that God did: He made the water come out of rock. Water is the life-giving substance. Jesus is the water of life. Come and drink your fill or be lost forever.
