Salvation (Exodus 15:2)
So I continue ’27 Lessons’* with another important word – Salvation.
(*Just to explain, I turned 27 this year on 22nd August 2018. I held a birthday dinner during which each attendee was given a different word based on one of my favourite chapters in the bible – Psalms 27)
Again, the original text in Psalm 27v1 is such a distinct verse that encapsulates the word, but I chose to read around it and came across Exodus 15 verse 2:
The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
So for me ‘Salvation’ has connotations of redemption, deliverance and being saved generally. When I read the word ‘Salvation’, I relate it to the transformation that occurred when we first encountered Christ, and continues to occur in in us daily.
Not only has God changed our lives, but as we continue to stay in prayer and read the Word, the way we view God, I believe, will change.
He is OUR God, which to me feels like the most encouraging declaration.
God is YOURS.
He’s not just for your parents, or for your siblings, or your friends – He belongs to you too, and thank God for the fateful day on which you made a decision to live in that truth.
Reader, my prayer is that you will continue to walk in that truth safely all the rest of your days in Jesus name Amen.
