Weekend Worship – Hosanna (PlanetShakers)

Did you know that the Hebrew word “Hosanna” actually means “save now”? Today we commemorate the day Jesus entered Jerusalem seated on a donkey. Palm Sunday marks a significant truth that we all need saving and God did not disappoint us. He gave us His son Jesus Christ to die on the cross to save us, redeemed us and give us new life, therefore, we can rejoice in this truth.

Zechariah 9:9 – Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

 

Weekend Worship – Came To My Rescue

 

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:17 KJV

Many times we think that it is difficult to rise up and emerge from situations drowning us. It makes us think that we are alone in this world fighting our battle and we are losing our strength to stay afloat over our situations. But what a beautiful assurance that when we call out to God, He will surely respond and rescue us from the depths of our situations.

I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers! Isaiah 65:24 NLT

I pray this weekend that may we have the rest we needed for the Lord our God is with us. He will fight the battle for us; He is our ever-present help in times of needs.

Call unto the Lord and surely, God will not disappoint us – He will answer. He will come to our rescue and give us rest.

Weekend Worship – Raise A Hallelujah

Psalm 150:1 – Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah is a Hebrew word which means “praise Yahweh”. Today is the first time I heard of this song and have meditated and reflected on the words. Singing “Hallelujah” despite our circumstances gives us hope that we will rise in victory, not because of our own strength but because God is going to fight the battle for us. Hallelujah also is a joyous boast of Yahweh’s great power and supremacy in our lives.

Bethel Community has also a powerful testimony on this when they were inspired to write the song. May this be the same inspiration to us all – those of us who are fighting our battles. God will not leave us nor forsake us – let us keep praising God for our help comes from the Lord the maker of heaven and earth.

Today, I speak blessings to all of us through this worship song and the testimony of the miracle healing of the baby Jaxon as we raise a Hallelujah to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Alpha and the Omega, the One who is and is to come forever and ever. Amen.

Weekend Worship: Who You Say I Am

Sometimes, our identity in life is defined by our past mistakes. Other times, it is defined by our current circumstances.

If trials come, we call ourselves the “afflicted one”.

In a career setback, we call ourselves the “jobless one”.

When our health reports came unexpected, we call ourselves the”sickly one”.

When the desire for a child came later than expected, we call ourselves “the barren one”.

Dwelling in our circumstances takes our eyes off to who we really are. Jesus didn’t die on the cross for us to be called the “afflicted”, the “jobless”, the “sickly”, the “barren”. Jesus came for us so that in Him we can be called the “Child of God”. He came so that even though we may suffer afflictions, setbacks, sickness and barrenness so that we may have life despite all of these things. Jesus came so that we can have an identity in Him.

We are chosen.

We may experience affliction, but we will never be abandoned, never forsaken.

Jesus is for us. And because of this truth, we can put our identity into practice. Our faith in Jesus is secured. We are who God says in the Bible because of what Jesus did at the cross.

Blessed Sunday everyone.

Weekend Worship: Surrounded – Upper Room

I loved this song! This has been one of my anthems for this year especially when I lift up to God the biggest prayer I have said in my life.

I have been sharing with my small group mates about the biggest prayer I have in accordance with Ephesians 3:20 “Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.”

My biggest prayer is that for one of my loved ones to be delivered from depression, that Christians and pre-believer to be delivered from depression and that suicide caused by clinical depression will stop and tremble at the name of Jesus. Sometime in July, I have waged war against that spirit and while at the church that time, this song was being sung, and then God clearly spoke to me – “Daughter, the war you have waged against depression, I will win that war for you, because I love you”. I may not see the complete answer to my biggest prayer into fruition, but I know my God is able to accomplish it, maybe not on my lifetime, or not in the next generation – but this I know for sure, it shall come to past for my victory is in Jesus’ name.

Worship Weekend: Miracles – Jesus Culture

This morning, as I anticipate the Lord’s day and Holy Spirit Encounter after the church service, I played the song Miracles by Jesus Culture.

I didn’t know that this song was also part of the worship lineup for the afternoon service. God has spoken about my prayers that I know will take time. But I take heart because my God is faithful, not because I have a lot of faith, but because Jesus is the author and the perfecter of my faith.

The God who made the blind eyes see before is the same God who will remove spiritual scales in my eyes that hinders me to keep my sight unto Him. The God who brought life to death is the same God that will restore broken relationships caused by family feuds. The God who made the deaf to hear is the same God that is whispering to my ear, ”Do not fear, do not be dismayed, because I am the God of miracles. Rejoice in me, I will turn your fears to faith; your mourning into dancing; your sorrow into joy”.

I pray that whoever is reading this post right now that God will minister unto you just as He ministers unto me through this song. Have a blessed Sunday.

Weekend Worship: Do It Again – Elevation Worship

I am not a Super Christian – there are circumstances that my faith also falter and I was eaten up by worries of life.

There are instances that keep stacking up and that instead of my faith keeps getting hyped, my anxious mind gets in the way. But when I start singing to our God, God keeps on reminding me on one of verse that I kept holding on whenever I felt that the struggle was real.

I was once young, but now I’m old.
    Not once have I found a lover of God forsaken by him,
    nor have any of their children gone hungry. – Psalm 37:25 (TPT)

This verse was one of my life verses that I have been holding on since I am on my teen years. Up until now, God has been keeping His promise that no righteous man will be forsaken and will beg for bread. At this time, when I am about to lose a job that I have been in for the last nine years, God has reminded me that I was never in need. He always provide me a good and a better job. If He is able to do it last time, He will be able to do it again. Sometimes, some good things must come to an end, so that better things can come and stay.

PS: I will be having my second interview on Tuesday, and I am claiming that this new job is the one that I have been waiting for over a year now. Truly His goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life as long as I make my God my refuge and my stronghold.
