Psalms 106, gives us a Condensed Version of the 40 years in the desert.
They forgat God their saviour :
Those 5 words Condense it even further.
Signs, wonders and miracles, they saw it all. Yet, they arive at the Red sea, and “they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.” (Psalms 106) (Yeah but, what have you done for me, today?)
“Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.”
Isn’t it amazing, He saved them, because of His promise, to make His mighty power known.
Why did He save me, or you? Saints, it is simple, it is truth, it is misunderstood.
“That he might make his mighty power to be known.”
When people see, a committed Christian, an upright, trustworthy, honest, stand up whosoever, who was once, a lying, cheat and sinner.
His mighty power is known.
What is even more powerful, more miraculous power, is available to those who believe.
He parted the sea, they crossed on dry ground, He buried their enimies, under the serf.
“Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.”
His manna, wasn’t enough, their clothes and sandals, never wearing out…, not enough.
“And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.” Why?
“They forgat God their saviour.”
“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”<i
We need to know God, know His promises, believe His word, and act like we do. Amen
