Today's reading: Revelation 15
And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb: "Great and amazing are your deeds, Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, King of the nations!" Revelation 15: 3 NRSV
What is one great or amazing deed that God has done in your life or the lives around you this year?
What have you done to share that deed with others? If you haven't shared it, why is that?
Have you attempted to spend some time in praising and thanking God for that great or amazing deed?
In Moses' day it was the song of Miriam sung on the banks of the Red Sea, giving God praise for not only bringing the people out of Egypt but also for saving them from Pharaoh's army. In John's vision it is those who have conquered the beast (really Rome and its powers) standing on the banks of the lake of fire (soon to become the place of the second death's torment) giving God this song of praise.
Today, let it be ourselves standing on the bank of 2010, giving God the praise and glory for all the amazing and mighty deeds God has done in the world and in the lives of those around us this year and in years past.
Great and amazing are your deeds, Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, King of the nations! We thank you and give you the praise and honor and glory! In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
