Focus verses: Exodus 15:1-18

The song of Moses is the first recorded song in the Bible. It is a paean of praise to the Lord in response to their deliverance from the Egyptians.

It will be quite some time before we see the principle in Psalm 22 that God inhabits the praises of His people. But here we are in the midst of a celebration. There is singing and dancing and much rejoicing.

When was the last time we rejoiced simply in Who God is? Not for what He's done for us nor what we want Him to do for us, but simply in Him, because He is God.

We work for Him; we read His word; we serve on committees. When do we sing, dance and revel in nothing but the presence of the Lord?

I know that schedules are tight, and people are busy. But we need to schedule some time for just enjoying God's presence. Time to sit at the feet of the Master and bask in His smile. Time to hear His voice and feel His live.

Father, God,

Help us to make time with You our first priority. Not time for prayer and supplication, but time simply to be with You.
In Jesus' most precious name,
