(Full) Psalm 114 KJV - When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob

Pastor Yemi Adebanjo Pastor Yemi Adebanjo

When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;

Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.

The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.

The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.

What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?

More Psl. 114 (Old Testament)

Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?

Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;

Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

 Devotional: Doing The Impossible

Thought for the day: With God, you can do great things



This Psalm records the great and mighty things done through Moses and the children of Israel in the wilderness journey. Reading about these miracles shares with us how God loves His own, and that great things can be done through His people.

Considering when He first spoke to Moses about going back to Eygpt, Moses was surprised after his rod turned into a snake and many other things that God revealed to him. Getting to Eygpt, God did great things through him and Aaron.

God is still looking for His own that He can use in this way on the earth.

What is the theme of Psl. 114?

The theme of Psl. 114 is that there is no limit to what God can do when He sees a ready man. 

The scripture reading today told us about how the red sea ran from them and Jordan went back. Scripture also shares how the mountain was like a ram and how the rock was turned into water. Wow. The reason this happened was because God was in the camp.

When you allow God to take charge of your life and you become a chaser of God, He will do great things through you. See Peter’s response to the lame man at the beautiful gate in the book of Acts.

Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

Amazing! Peter wanted to try the works of God. He wanted to do them the way Christ did them. You too can do great things through Jesus. The Bible says that they that know their God shall be strong and do great exploits. 

Rise from where you are and possess your mountain.

My Counsel

Ø  Don’t die like an ordinary man, surrender your life to Christ. He will use you greatly.

Ø  You can achieve anything when you allow God in your life.



Lord  Jesus, my life is yours. I ask that you use me greatly and mightily in Jesus' Name.
