Podcast #91: “Deliverer” by Matt Maher

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Music and lyrics have always played an essential role in helping us to remember. Sometimes, I remember where I was in 1980-something, just by hearing a tune waft through the air in the grocery store. That’s powerful! The Israelites used a song in Exodus 15 declaring their Deliverer’s wondrous acts and mighty power to help them remember the details of that experience. We can use Matt Maher’s song, “Deliverer,” to direct us to study that same place in God’s Word and then allow it to help us remember what we’ve learned!


There are some powerful lessons in the song and this area of Scripture. Dive in today!

In this episode, I discuss:

  • How quickly the Israelites freaked out after they left Egypt – Exodus 14:11-12
  • Moses’ response – Exodus 14:13-14
  • God’s response – Exodus 14:15-18
  • A verse-by-verse breakdown of the Song of Deliverance in Exodus 15
  • The importance of celebrating what God has done
  • Where the resistance in our lives comes from
    • Ourselves
    • Our Enemy
    • God Himself
  • A quick peek at part of Psalm 66…another song that remembers that glorious day
