Exodus 15:2 (KJV)
The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.
The phrase ‘my strength and song’ occurs 3 times in the Bible, here in Psalms 18:14 and Isaiah 12:2. Exodus 1:1-21 is a song recorded in the Bible to honour and exalt the name of our God. This song was sung when the Israelites saw that God shook the Egyptians – Pharaoh’s chariots and horsemen, to the very last man, were buried in the sea.
Moses could have done nothing to save the people for the approaching Egyptian army. Moses surrendered his weakness and himself to the Lord and therefore was able to allow God to use him to his fullest. In his weakness, he was made strong (1 Corinthians 12:8-10) because of his trust in the Lord.
This scripture is an encouragement to all of us who have a personal relationship with God. It is better to rely on God’s strength, which is wiser, deeper, stronger and can accomplish greater things in our lives. When achievements and success come our way, we should always remember to praise God and exalt His name.
