Tremble in His Presence | Psalm 114

Today's Passage: Psalm 114
Key Verses: Psalm 114:7-8

Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.

This psalm is a hymn celebrating Israelís deliverance from slavery in Egypt. It was probably sung during Passover and other special times of worship. The psalmist asked the sea why it fled, the Jordan why it separated, and the mountains why they trembled. The answer: The Presence of God.

Today the presence of the same God of deliverance lives within our hearts. Just think about that! The all-powerful God lives within us in the form of the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit that empowers us to live a life pleasing to God. By the Spirit we can say "No!" to sin and "Yes!" to obedience.

Are you experiencing that power? Are you experiencing the almighty God living in you and working through you? Are you surrendering to his empowerment or still trying to get it all done on your own? Maybe it's time we tremble at his presence and allow him to turn our hard hearts into springs of refreshing water.

Father, allow us to somehow grasp the fact that the same power that caused the mountains to tremble is the same power that we have through your Spirit. Help us to give our lives to the Spiritís control in order to know you intimately, follow you passionately, and obey you wholeheartedly. In Jesus' name. Amen.
