Praise & Worship for 11th October 2019



Praise the Lord!

“To you, Lord, I call;
you are my Rock,
do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you remain silent,
I will be like those who go down to the pit.”
Psalms 28:1
God’s silence embodies the most painful time in the Christian walk. David so rightly describes the feeling when he equates it to that of someone who has been sentenced to an eternity in a pit, to a place of nothingness, a dark place of solitude where you can hear yourself breathe.  A brother in Christ once told me, when he went through a crushing silent time with God, that after much wrestling in the spirit regarding the silence, God presented Himself in the strangest way. For a few moments God showed him how it would be if He really departed from him. He shared with me that it was a sudden deep crushing weight from within, that got him into a place of panic and heartbreak, so desperate a feeling that he had to beg God to make it stop.
We live so safely wrapped up inside God’s grace, with a promise of His word that says that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Even His silence is not really silence, as none of us would be able to endure the ache of Love departing from us even for a moment. Our God grieves at the pain of such a separation.
Much like Job, my brother in Christ, quickly reeled back to understand that His silence doesn’t mean departure, but only calls for us to establish our feet firmer in faith in the foundation that is Jesus. It is an opportunity for us to show God that we too, made of His image, will emulate His faithfulness towards us, even in silent times. Since our God doesn’t change, neither must we. We are built in the spirit to do this.
“Hear my cry for mercy
as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
toward your Most Holy Place.”
Psalms 28:2
David’s countenance certainly leads to a change as he penned the second verse, reaffirming to himself, just as we should, that we will call out for help and mercy to the only One who is our Rock, the only One who hears, the only one to whom we will lift our hands towards.
Bring this Davidic attitude to worship and let it arise to lift up the countenance of the people of God. May this be our worthy offering to the Rock of all ages – that we declare and rejoice in every situation that we have none but Jesus.
Remember each other in prayers. God Bless you all!

Even Famines carry Gods’ purposes

  Today as we face famine in this world, we are reminded of many famines mentioned in the Word of God. Few escaped to near by places while few remained in the land and faced the famine. Naomi was one among them who tried to escape the famine by lodging in Moab. On the other […]

At Your Name / Praise Him Forever / Jesus at the Center (No other Name)

“Lift up a banner on the high mountain, Raise your voice to them; Wave your hand, that they may enter the gates of the nobles. I have commanded My sanctified ones; I have also called My mighty ones for My anger— Those who rejoice in My exaltation.” Isaiah 13:2,3 The Lord gives this command over His people, His sanctified ones, His chosen warriors to the execution of His will upon Babylon, the enemy nations, every power and principality that rises up against us – lift up your banner, raise your voice and cry out, let those who rejoice in God’s exaltation and promotion, come up through the gates. The Lord is to display His power and excellence in sovereignty in this way:

Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the Lord of hosts And in the day of His fierce anger.” Isaiah 13:2,3,13 Be not faint-hearted, nor afraid, or terrified, and do not ever give in to panic before your enemies, do not let him gloat over you (Deut. 20.1-4). When we stand without fright before the enemy it is a sign to him, that he will be destroyed, and that we will be saved (Philip. 1.28).

Remember this as we stand in the front line of fire as we worship, that we have a God who said that He will shake up the heavens and the earth and break the chains of those who rise up against us. Fear not, and sing, raise up a battle cry, for the Lord our God goes before us, fights for us, against our enemies, and gives us victory.
