God’s strong arm is renowned.

Listen to the song of Moses and the Israelites after seeing the Lord fight for them—leading this massive throng across the Red Sea on dry ground before releasing the banks of water to drown the pursuing Egyptian army.

“I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider or its chariot has He thrown into the sea. The Lord is my Strength and my Song, and He has become my Salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him…

“Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in power; Your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy. In the greatness of Your majesty, You overthrow those rising against You. You send forth Your fury; it consumes them like stubble…You stretched out Your right hand, the earth’s [sea] swallowed them. You in Your mercy and loving-kindness have led forth the people whom You have redeemed. You have guided them in Your strength to Your holy habitation.

“The peoples have heard of it; they tremble; pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia. Now the chiefs of Edom are dismayed; the mighty men of Moab [renowned for strength], trembling takes hold of them; all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away—little by little. Terror and dread fall upon them; because of the greatness of Your arm they are as still as a stone—till Your people pass by and over [into Canaan], O Lord, till the people pass by whom You have purchased. You will bring them in [to the land] and plant them on Your own mountain, the place, O Lord, You have made for Your dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established” (see Exodus 15 Amplified).

God’s strong arm still wields power. If you need a refresher course to renew your confidence, do a word study. Suggestions: God’s strong arm, outstretched arm, right hand, mighty hand. Take your time with this study. Put yourself in the scene and imagine your response.

This study will bring you to Psalm 138. Highlight verses 7 and 8. “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever—forsake not the works of Your own hands.”

Are you confidently relying on God’s mighty hand in your circumstances today?

In Deuteronomy 7 Moses prepared the people to face nations greater in power. “You shall not be afraid of them, but remember [earnestly] what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt. The great trials which your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand and the outstretched arm by which the Lord your God brought you out. So shall the Lord your God do to all the people of whom you are afraid. Moreover, the Lord your God will send the hornet among them until those who are left and hide themselves from you are destroyed. You shall not dread them, for the Lord your God is among you, a mighty and terrible God. And the Lord your God will clear out those nations before you little by little…”

Now there’s a unique strategy! God will send hornets if he has to!

God’s strong arm is outstretched, offering all the power of his mighty hand to fight for us today—and we can rest.

Sing with me the song of Moses and the Israelites.

“Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods” Who is like You, glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, doing wonders?…The Lord will reign forever and ever.”

Please tell me how the Lord has shown up and intervened in your life with a mighty hand. And I’d be grateful if you’d share this with your friends!
