Bring out the Timbrel


Psalms 84:4 Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will still be praising You.

Hundreds of thousands of Israelites woke up to see Pharaoh’s fast approaching army. With 600 of his best generals, he was prepared to enslave them, again.

The Israelites had nowhere to go! The red sea blocked their path to safety.

As most of them resigned to defeat, the Lord showed His awesome might!

At dusk, God told Moses to stretch out his staff over the Red Sea.

When he did so, the waters parted, and formed a wall on either side of a dry pathway, miraculously made for the Israelites to pass through the sea.

On the other side, Miriam brought out the timbrel and praised God with all the other Israelite women. A wonderful account of their songs of praise is captured in Exodus 15.

Many a time God does miraculous wonders to deliver us from difficult situations.

Do we praise God, like Miriam?
