When God gives you victory over your enemy, or you endure a hard time just as Israel experienced through their slavery in Egypt, raise your voice, sing, and dance before the Lord. Glorify him and show your appreciation because you wouldn’t have made it without him. The Israelites had a party on the shore after the waters of the Red Sea swept away the Egyptians; they knew where their help came from.
Don’t just pray and forget what you asked God for. If you can’t remember your requests, write them down; start a prayer journal, so when you get your answer or receive a victory, you can praise God for his faithfulness. Don’t forget to do this! It’s an essential part of our relationship with him. Imagine if someone did something good for you and you forgot to thank them; do you think they will help you again? Maybe, but it’s unlikely. God expects praise just as people do. Sing a song, dance, and shout; it’s biblical!
And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. Exodus 15:20
