Miracles Performed by Moses And Aaron

Miracles

Egypt was Israel’s place of dwelling for 400 years. This is almost twice as long as the United States has been a nation, yet it was but a passing moment of time with God. It is estimated that when they left Egypt they numbered three million people. Because God blessed the Israelites the Egyptians hated them (v. 25). Thus God used their animosity as a means to lead the Israelites out of Egypt (vv. 26-27).

The psalmist does not list all of the miracles or in the order they occurred but he does review many of the plagues:

  1. 1. Who should be worshiped? The Lord God. He is mentioned by name or by pronoun in every stanza of this psalm except 11-12. 2. What is worship? One hundred seventy times in the Bible we find the phrase “fall on your face or bow down” which refers to worship. (Example 95:6) 3. How should we worship? With music (v. 1); with proclamation (v. 2); by giving Him glory (v. 8); by coming into his places of worship (v. 8); by living holy lives (v. 9); and by witnessing for Him (v. 10). 4. Why should we worship?  Because the Lord has saved us (v. 2); because of His greatness and fearsomeness (v. 4); because of his creation (v. 5); because of His honor, majesty, and strength (v. 6); and because the Lord is righteous, true, and coming to judge (v. 13). 5. Where are we to worship? We are to worship the Lord among the nations (v. 3); in His sanctuary (v. 6); and in His courts (v. 8). 6. When are we to worship? We are to sing and proclaim His salvation day after day (v. 2). 

Application

God loves everyone in this world and is not willing that any should perish (II Peter 3:9). However it is easy for me to think that there is no hope for certain people. I need to be more alert to what the Lord is doing to reach them through every situation of life.
