12.2.2020 – He Chooses the “Smallest” and the “Least”

A reminder of who our God is… ??☀️

The Song of Moses (Exodus 15, The Message Translation)

15 1-8 Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to God, giving voice together,

I’m singing my heart out to God—what a victory!
    He pitched horse and rider into the sea.
God is my strength, God is my song,
    and, yes! God is my salvation.

This is the kind of God I have
    and I’m telling the world!
This is the God of my father—
    I’m spreading the news far and wide!
God is a fighter,
    pure God, through and through.

Pharaoh’s chariots and army
    he dumped in the sea,
The elite of his officers
    he drowned in the Red Sea.
Wild ocean waters poured over them;
    they sank like a rock in the deep blue sea.
Your strong right hand, God, shimmers with power;
    your strong right hand shatters the enemy.

In your mighty majesty
    you smash your upstart enemies,
You let loose your hot anger
    and burn them to a crisp.
At a blast from your nostrils
    the waters piled up;
Tumbling streams dammed up,
    wild oceans curdled into a swamp.

The enemy spoke,
        “I’ll pursue, I’ll hunt them down,
    I’ll divide up the plunder,
        I’ll glut myself on them;
    I’ll pull out my sword,
        my fist will send them reeling.”

10-11 You blew with all your might
        and the sea covered them.
    They sank like a lead weight
        in the majestic waters.
    Who compares with you
        among gods, O God?
    Who compares with you in power,
        in holy majesty,
    In awesome praises,
        wonder-working God?

12-13 You stretched out your right hand
        and the Earth swallowed them up.
    But the people you redeemed,
        you led in merciful love;
    You guided them under your protection
        to your holy pasture.

14-18 When people heard, they were scared;
        Philistines writhed and trembled;
    Yes, even the head men in Edom were shaken,
        and the big bosses in Moab.
    Everybody in Canaan
        panicked and fell faint.
    Dread and terror
        sent them reeling.
    Before your brandished right arm
        they were struck dumb like a stone,
    Until your people crossed over and entered, O God,
        until the people you made crossed over and entered.
    You brought them and planted them
        on the mountain of your heritage,
    The place where you live,
        the place you made,
    Your sanctuary, Master,
        that you established with your own hands.
    Let God rule
        forever, for eternity!

19 Yes, Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and riders went into the sea and God turned the waters back on them; but the Israelites walked on dry land right through the middle of the sea.


Thank You, Father. ? And we are Your people…

And Father, I love that You tend to favor the “runt” of the litter. The smallest and the least… the “least likely to succeed”…

You see us and pick us up, when we don’t feel seen, You strengthen us where we’re weak, You speak Your voice through us when we don’t think we have a voice that can possibly be heard!


The LORD did not set his heart on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other nations, for you were the smallest of all nations!”—Deuteronomy 7:7

“Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth? 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.” —Psalm 113:5-8

And in times like we are living in now, we’ll remember….

For it was not by their sword that they took the land; their arm did not bring them victory; it was by Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your face; for You delighted in them.“—Psalm 44:3

  1. May God especially bless you and yours this special Christmas season Heather. Your gift of putting pen to paper has enriched my spiritual life immensely. Everyday I’m brought into a closer more intimate relationship with God through your writing. It is utterly amazing how everyday everytime no matter what you write it has a way to speak to my heart, my life, my whatever is happening. I know that is the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. ?????? Merry Christmas my friend in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour! ?❄☃️??✝️
