Psalm 114

The poet brings nature alive in Psalm 114 as God works through Moses to rescue the Israelites from Egyptian slavery. The sea looks and flees. Mountains skip like rams and hills like lambs. The earth trembles. A rock becomes a pool of water, a flint a spring of water. In this brief psalm, God's power is displayed in His mighty workings on behalf of His people. How does this psalm encourage you today?

Psalm 113

As we read Psalm 113 today, let us praise the Lord that we are rooted in Him from the rising of the sun through the late watches of the night! He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people. He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children.
