Open Heaven 29 December 2019 Devotional – Songs Of Triumph, written by Pastor E. A. Adeboye
TODAY’S TOPIC: Songs Of Triumph
“And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD” – (Psalm 40:3)
READ: Exodus 15:1-11 (KJV)
1. Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
2. The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation; he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3. The LORD is a man of war; the LORD is his name.
4. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea; his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
5. The depths have covered them; they sank into the bottom as a stone.
6. Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power; thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
7. And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee; thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8. And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.
9. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10. Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them; they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11. Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
MESSAGE: Open Heaven 29 December 2019 Devotional
Today’s Bible reading records a classical song of triumph that Moses and the Israelites sang after overcoming the Red sea and Pharaoh’s forces. After they were liberated from the shackles of slavery in Egypt, the children of Israel were faced with the greatest battle of their lives when they found themselves trapped between the Red sea before them and Pharaoh’s army behind. At that moment, they fell into a state of despair and murmured against Moses and His God, who took them by His mighty works He did to bring them out, so much so that He killed all the firstborns of Egypt.
However, God had mercy on them, and He overthrew pharaoh’s plan to return them into slavery. After witnessing God’s great intervention on their behalf, songs of triumph filled their mouths and they began to sing, even without any rehearsals. I prophesy to a user of this devotional today: you will experience a victory over your enemies that will put new songs of triumph in your mouth in Jesus’ Name.
David faced so many battles in his life, but at the end of every battle his songs were always songs of triumph. For example, he sang in Psalm 124:1-3, saying:
“If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say; If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us.”
Beloved, you also can sing many songs of triumph provided you choose the correct ally in the battles of life.
Our God is a specialist in all forms of warfare – be it ground, underground, marine, underwater or air warfare, it doesn’t matter to Him. What He did with Pharaoh and his hosts is a good example of His marine and submarine warfare capabilities. The battle He fought for the Israelites in (1 Samuel chapter 7) is an example of His ground warfare abilities.

In Exodus 9:18-25, He showed His ability to fight from the air by sending hailstones upon the Egyptians. Describing the mightiness of God in battle, the Holy spirit said in Isaiah 12:5-6:
“Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.”
So, if I were you, I would ensure that this God, who is mighty in battle, is my ally, and I would surrender every battle of my life to Him to fight in His own way. Do this today, and you will always have songs of triumph to sing.
Father, I come to You today, please be my Ally in the battles of life, and give me new songs of triumph over all my enemies, to the glory of Your Name.
