Victor's Song Finale

Hello, all. This is a victor's song from the Bible.  I have a song, and so do you. (more about that in a minute)  My victor's song is being set to music and I will share it with you, as soon as I can. It is the theme song for our book, W.O.W. created w.o.w.  I know; that is deep isn't it? But it all did not come from me. I am just a clay vessel that He uses to allow His glory to shine through.

Now about your song, you know that you don't have to have a literal song to be singing for the Lord, don't you? Why do I say that? Well, did you not know that you sing for the Lord by every kind word, every good deed, every time you brag on Him, every time you show your faith for the world to see, etc.? Uhm hum and if you sing it loudly enough, the whole world will hear it. If you make sure that your song has a catchy tune, then the world will begin singing it, too. And that, my friend is what living for Him is all about.

Exodus 15New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Song of Moses and Israel

15 Then Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song to the Lord[a]and said,
[b]I will sing to the Lord, for He [c]is highly exalted;
The horse and its rider He has hurled into the sea.
[d]The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation;
This is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will extol Him.
The Lord is a warrior;
[e]The Lord is His name.
Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea;
And the choicest of his officers are [f]drowned in the [g]Red Sea.
“The deeps cover them;
They went down into the depths like a stone.
Your right hand, O Lord, is majestic in power,
Your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.
“And in the greatness of Your [h]excellence You overthrow those who rise up against You;
You send forth Your burning anger, and it consumes them as chaff.
At the blast of Your nostrils the waters were piled up,
The flowing waters stood up like a heap;
The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.
The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil;
My [i]desire shall be [j]gratified against them;
I will draw out my sword, my hand will [k]destroy them.’
10 You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them;
They sank like lead in the [l]mighty waters.
11 Who is like You among the gods, O Lord?
Who is like You, majestic in holiness,
Awesome in praises, working wonders?
12 You stretched out Your right hand,
The earth swallowed them.
13 “In Your lovingkindness You have led the people whom You have redeemed;
In Your strength You have guided them to Your holy habitation.
14 The peoples have heard, they tremble;
Anguish has gripped the inhabitants of Philistia.
15 “Then the chiefs of Edom were dismayed;
The leaders of Moab, trembling grips them;
All the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
16 Terror and dread fall upon them;
By the greatness of Your arm they are motionless as stone;
Until Your people pass over, O Lord,
Until the people pass over whom You have purchased.
17 You will bring them and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance,
The place, O Lord, which You have made for Your dwelling,
The sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.
18 The Lord shall reign forever and ever.”
19 For the horses of Pharaoh with his chariots and his horsemen went into the sea, and the Lord brought back the waters of the sea on them, but the sons of Israel walked on dry land through the midst of the sea.
20 Miriam, Aaron’s sister, took the timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her", singing.

Aside 1- I have the title for the novella that I told you that I was going to do. You know what it is, The Victor's Song.  How sweet is that!

Aside 2 - How were Miriam and her ladies and all of the patriarchs of note, able to sing a victor's song? Exactly! They were victorious. That statement takes care of the poem from yesterday in itself. Are you singing your victor's song loudly and long? I am!
