Key Verse: Exodus 15:20
Then Miriam, the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the trimbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
Remember Miriam? She was the one who 80 years before, as the older sister of Moses, watched over the little basket floating in the Nile. She arranged for Moses’ mother to care for the baby on behalf of the sister of Pharaoh who found the baby in the bulrushes. Now, about 90 years of age, she prophesies, puts those words to song, plays the timbrel, and leads the dance. Amazing! We need to celebrate too! God has fulfilled His purposes in the past; He is doing so right now; He will do so unfailingly in the future! He provides fresh water and promises, “I am the Lord who heals you!”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, You are the great “I am” who heals me. I rest on Your promise for physical healing. I celebrate Your deliverance from the slavery of sin. I praise and worship You for who You are. I sing to You, Lord, for You have triumphed gloriously! Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
It’s now 5:45 a.m. I’ve just spent five minutes looking for our timbrel (tambourine) which I know we have somewhere. Later, when Norma-Jean awakens, she’ll know where it is. I plan to play the timbrel and dance. I’ll ask her to play on the piano a dancing song that the Cameron Family from Scotland sang and danced to on the 100 Huntley Street TV show about 25 years ago. Right now I’ll contain my exuberance and finish this blog, getting it ready for posting at 100words.ca just for fresh manna and spring water for you. We’ve been having trouble sending you the e-mail edition of this blog on time. The company that does it has some troubles; however, I’ve been promised that the problem will be solved by Sept. 15th. Please keep rejoicing! My dance later won’t be as pretty as Miriam’s I’m sure, but Norma-Jean will laugh and she might even dance with me.
Yours to celebrate with Miriam and you,
REMINDER: If you are reading the email version and wish to post a comment on my blog, go to www.100words.ca and “Leave a Reply.” Please tell me how you are celebrating God’s goodness. I love Miriam’s words, “THE GREATNESS OF YOUR EXCELLENCE” (verse 7a).
