Psalm 114

I was reading through Psalms, and I stumbled upon this chapter, so I decided to post the whole chapter (relax, it’s only 8 verses…)

1 When Israel came out of Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,

2 Judah became God’s sanctuary,
Israel his dominion.

3 The sea looked and fled,
the Jordan turned back;

4 the mountains skipped like rams,
the hills like lambs.

5 Why was it, O sea, that you fled,
O Jordan, that you turned back,

6 you mountains, that you skipped like rams,
you hills, like lambs?

7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,

8 who turned the rock into a pool,
the hard rock into springs of water.

God recently has been bringing me through a time of renewing the awe I have in Him, and what He can do. So look starting in verse 3 as it talks about the power of God and what He did. But it is summed up so well in verses 7 & 8. “Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord […] who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water”. God causes the earth to tremble, just by His presence… Think about it, when you read about people falling to their feet, and being afraid, all they did was walk into the room where He was and it started… That would be like I walk in the room, and just me walking in makes everyone in the room who sees it, and even the room itself, start to tremble and worship me, and I haven’t even spoken or done anything yet… (I’m not saying I’m god, but I’m using this as a comparison to the power of God). That is power beyond all compare, that is the power that God has been showing me again… God, take me deeper into to your presence, wash over me with your power, I want to tremble and be afraid, because it is a trembling and fear that leads to worship…

  1. “I want to tremble and be afraid, because it is a trembling and fear that leads to worship…”Could it be the other way around, that through worship, we come to a deeper understanding of God, which leads to trembling, fear, and humility?
