Read & Consider
Read Exodus 15:13, 17
Having looked back and praised God for what he has done for them, the song of the Israelites now looks ahead to the future. Although free from slavery, the Israelites faced a journey into the unknown. They would need to rely on God’s guidance to lead them safely to the Promised Land. In the same way, even though we can’t know what lies ahead of us, we can trust in God’s constant faithfulness. Just as He guided the Israelites, we know with certainty that will also guide and lead us.
Verse 17 fixes our eyes on our destination: the sanctuary where we will dwell with God. A hopeful ending to the song for both the Israelites, looking towards Canaan, and for us looking towards heaven – our own promised land.
