Psalm 46 (Lord of Hosts) 


[Verse 1]O come behold the works of God

The nations at His feet

He breaks the bow and bends the spear

And tells the wars to cease

O Mighty One of Israel

You are on our side

We walk by faith in God who burns the chariots with fire
[Chorus]

Lord of Hosts, You’re with us

With us in the fire

With us as a shelter

With us in the storm

You will lead us

Through the fiercest battle

Oh where else would we go

But with the Lord of Hosts
[Verse 2]

O God of Jacob, fierce and great

You lift Your voice to speak

The earth it bows and all

The mountains move into the sea

O Lord You know the hearts of men

And still you let them live

O God, who makes the mountains melt

Come wrestle us and win

O God who makes the mountains melt

Come wrestle us and win

Just by held by Casting Crowns

Artist: Casting Crowns
Song: Just be held
Source: https://www.castingcrowns.com/music/lyrics/just-be-held

Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on

And when you’re tired of fighting
Chained by your control
There’s freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go

Chorus:
So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away
You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place
I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held

If your eyes are on the storm
You’ll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You’ll know I always have and I always will

And not a tear is wasted
In time, you’ll understand
I’m painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands

Chorus

Lift your hands, lift your eyes
In the storm is where you’ll find Me
And where you are, I’ll hold your heart
I’ll hold your heart
Come to Me, find your rest
In the arms of the God who won’t let go

Chorus

My Abba (My Father)

My Abba

You know the plans You have for me
You will complete Your work in me
My name’s engraved upon Your heart

You sacrificed Your Son for me
Atoning blood has pardoned me
Because of Christ, I am Your child

I’ll be still, know that You are God
By Your Spirit I cry

My Abba, my father
You’ll love me forever
My future’s secure in Your hands

You’ve crowned me with glory
To worship You only
To none else will I bow my heart
For You are my Abba, my God

Let’s celebrate our Lord Jesus Christ’s resurrection through praise and worship!

Watch what Jesus Christ has done to redeem us from our sinful selves.

He is the perfect lamb sacrificed as our sin offering so that all sins are judged once and for all. All judgement have been paid for so we can now come before God sinless as we are in Christ.

As we believe in what our Lord Jesus Christ did for us, we freely receive His gift of righteousness & all good blessings through the grace of God.

No man can boast that their own work can save their soul except through our Lord Jesus Christ. All glory to His Holy Name, Yahweh! Hallejulah!

Psalm 91

Song inspired by Psalm 91.
Written by Karen of New Creation Church music ministry.

I will dwell in the secret place of the Most High
I will stay in the shadow of Your wings
For Lord You are my refuge
My tower of strength
My hope is in You
Secure I stand

You will deliver me
Your truth will be my shield
Jesus You cover me
In Your love no fear prevails

No evil, no terror,
no arrow, no plague
Shall ever come near me
For You are my safety
My hiding place
Jesus I trust in You
Jesus I trust in You


NIV Bible Verses from Psalm 91:

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling– even the LORD, who is my refuge–
10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

Listen to “Anointed- Waiting In The Wings” on YouTube

Artist: Anointed
Album: Under The Influence (1996)
Song: Waiting In The Wings

Waitin’, waitin’, oh

I know how it feels to be
Just another face in the crowd
To feel like a whisper
In a world that’s much too loud

Tryin’ to find a place to fit in
A dream where you don’t understand
And where your dreams begin

Don’t let it pull you down
Don’t let it turn you around
Don’t ever forget whose child you are

Though others may fail to see
The diamond that lies beneath
He knows just how priceless you are
While you’re waiting in the wings

Underestimated
By everyone that passes you by
Lookin’ up from the bottom
Like a flower that’s reachin’ for the sky

Waitin’ for the sun to break through
Waitin’ for the chance for it
To shine down on you

Don’t let it pull you down
Don’t let it turn you around
Don’t ever forget whose child you are

Though others may fail to see
The diamond that lies beneath
He knows just how priceless you are
While you’re waiting in the wings

I see you standin’ behind the curtain
Listening to everyone’s applause
But remember the first shall be last
And the last shall be first in the eyes of God

You Were There – By Ben Glover

I would like to share this very powerful worship song “You were there” by Ben Glover that touches my heart every time I hear it. It makes me feel utterly grateful to what Jesus had done for me on the cross.

I thank you Lord Jesus for always being there for me!

You Were There
Written by Ben Glover
Recorded by Avalon

I wonder how it must have felt
When David stood to face Goliath on a hill
I imagine that he shook with all his might
Until You took his hand, and held on tight
‘Cause You were there, You were there
In the midst of danger’s snare
You were there, You were there always
You were there when the hardest fight
Seemed so out of reach
Oh, You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So there he stood upon that hill
Abraham with knife in hand was poised to kill
But God in all his sovereignty had bigger plans
And just in time, You brought a lamb
‘Cause You were there,You were there
In the midst of the unclear
You were there, you were there always
You were there when obedience seemed to not make sense
You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So haven’t I learned that my ways
Aren’t as high as Yours are
And You alone keep the universe
From crumbling into dust
You are God and though we would not have understood You
There You were hanging blameless on a cross
You would rather die than leave us in the dark
Every moment, every planned coincidence
Just all makes sense with Your last breath

You were there, You were there
During history’s darkest hour
You were there, You were there always

You were the Victor and the King
You were the power in David’s swing
You were the calm in Abraham
You are the God who understands
You are the strength when we have none
You are the living, Holy one
You were, You are and You will always be the Risen Lamb of God
You were, You are and You will always be the Risen Lamb of God

Grace Alone

Praise and Worship: Grace Alone

Every promise we can make
Every prayer and step of faith
Every difference we can make
Is only by His grace.

Every mountain we will climb
Every ray of hope we shine
Every blessing left behind
Is only by His grace

Chorus:
Grace alone Which God supplies
Strength unknown He will provide
Christ in us, our cornerstone
We will go forth in grace alone.

Every soul we long to reach
Every heart we hope to teach
Everywhere we share His peace
Is only by His grace.

Every loving word we say
Every tear we wipe away
Every sorrow turned to praise
Is only by His grace.

Chorus x3
We will go forth in grace alone.

The Creator

http://bible.us/r/6u.9.L

Today I am reading day 9 of NIV Once-A-Day At the Table Family Devotional:

The Creator

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, when God created the universe

• What’s your favorite — ​whether it’s an animal, plant, rock formation, beach or something else — ​of all the works of creation?
• How do you feel when you think about everything God has created?

Think about what it’s like to bring an art project home from school — ​something you’ve worked hard to make, all by yourself. You’ve poured your own unique creativity and skills into designing your masterpiece.

How would you feel if you brought it home, hung it in the middle of the living room, and then watched as everyone completely ignored it? Think about it. Not one gasp of amazement. Not one “Wow, how did you do this?” Not one comment about the colors you used or the skill of your design or the amazing talent behind the work. How would you feel?

Do you suppose God feels the same way when people ignore his creation? After all, he created the world and everything in it. Every day we are surrounded by the beauty of his work and the incredible detail of his design. But how often do we mention it? How often do we even notice it?

Let’s start a habit of giving God his due. Let’s make a commitment to noticing something new, something beautiful, something incredible in creation every day and thanking him for it. Let’s see what that does for our relationship with him.

My Prayer to God
Dear God, we are in awe of your creation. Every day we see something incredible that you made. Let us never lose our sense of wonder at your creative power. Amen.

Thank you Lord for the wonderful creation you have made…

Praise and Worship: Creator King


You who made the mountains and the sea
Measured out the universe and You made me
Echoes of the voice that called worlds to be
Reach throughout the ages and now speak to me
You’re my Creator King

You who made the valleys and the skies
Displayed Your Love on far horizons and before my eyes
You who lit the stars and set the dawn in time
Called them all by name and now You whisper mine
You’re My Creator King

Who am I that You are mindful of me
Who Am I that You sent Your love on me
You’re My Creator King

You who made the darkness and the light
Sun and moon to watch the day and guard the night
The hand that stretched the heavens like a canopy
Reaches down to cover and watch over me
You’re My Creator King
You’re My Creator King
My Creator King
You’re My Creator King

Be Thou My Vision

Praise and Worship: Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my souls Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor mans empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heavens joys, O bright Heavens Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Sweet Hour of Prayer

Praise and Worship: Sweet Hour of Prayer

Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
and bids me at my Father’s throne.
Make all my wants and wishes known;
in seasons of distress and grief,
my soul has often found relief,
and oft escaped the tempter’s snare,
by thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
to Him whose truth and faithfulness
engage the waiting soul to bless;
and since He bids me seek His face,
believe His Word and trust His grace,
I’ll cast on Him my every care,
and wait for Thee, sweet hour of prayer!

Great is thy faithfulness

Praise and Worship: Great is thy faithfulness

“Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Let Us Exalt His Name Lyrics (starting at 6:17)

At all times I will bless Him
His praise will be in my mouth
My soul makes its boast in the Lord
The humble man will hear of Him
The afflicted will be glad
And join with me to magnify the Lord

Chorus:
Let us exalt His name together, forever
I sought the Lord, He heard me
And delivered me from my fears.
Let us exalt His name together, forever
0 sing His praises magnify the Lord

The angel of the Lord encamps
Round those who fear His name
To save them and deliver them from harm
Though lions roar with hunger
We lack for no good thing
No wonder then we praise Him with our song

Repeat Chorus

Come children now and hear Him
If you would see long life
Just keep your lips from wickedness and lies
Do good and turn from evil
Seek peace instead of strife
Love righteousness and God will hear your cry

Repeat Chorus

Psalm 34 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God

A Psalm of David when he pretended madness before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.

34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel[a] of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

11 Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He guards all his bones;
Not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.
22 The Lord redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
