"From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised," Psalm 113:3.

Praise to the LORD WHO PROVIDES

"Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The LORD WILL PROVIDE."

Genesis 22:13

Sometimes, we may feel that we simply can't live up to the standards God sets before us. And, it's true. We can't. That's why God has provided righteousness to us through His Son. God gives us salvation. God gives us forgiveness. God gives us empowerment throught the Holy Spirit. God gives us a new life in Christ. God gives us overs. God provides for all that He requires. When God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son as a test of his obedience and then provided a ram in the place of Isaac, Abraham named the place, "The LORD Will Provide."  The Hebrew words, "Jehovah Yireh," means "the LORD will see to it." God' "seeing to" the provision to meet His demand foreshadowed God sacrificing Jesus to "see to it" that our sin debt was paid. The LORD PROVIDING His only SON to pay for our sin is the ultimate act of His love. Are you in need of help in some area of your life today? Look to the LORD WHO PROVIDES.  

Heavenly Father, I praise You, Jehovah Yireh, LORD WHO PROVIDES. Thank You for providing Your Son to pay my sin debt. Thank You for all the ways in which You provide. I worship You! 

Celebrate Jehovah Yireh and our Risen Savior with us HERE.

Praise to the LORD, GOD of the SPIRITS of ALL FLESH

“"May the LORD, the GOD OF THE SPIRITS OF ALL FLESH, appoint a man over the congregation,”

 

Friends, today is the 177th day in the year.  Do you realize that means we've focused on 177 different ways in which God has chosen to reveal Himself? And now, today, the 177th day, our focus is the all encompasing title: "LORD, GOD OF THE SPIRITS OF ALL FLESH." God is more than the God of the Jews. He is more than the Lord of the Gentiles. He is more than the Lord of lords. He is LORD, GOD OF THE SPIRITS OF ALL FLESH." I've had so much fun the last several days gazing at the heavens, thinking of God. He has poured Himself upon us in His revelation of the Scripture. He has poured Himself upon us in the revelation of Christ. He has poured Himself upon us in the Holy Spirit. He wants so badly for us to know there is another realm; a beautiful, eternal, glorious one where HE exists. He invites us to be a part.    

LORD, GOD OF THE SPIRITS OF ALL FLESH, I'm excited that YOU are my God. I praise and worship You.

Praise to LORD OF THE HARVEST

“Then He (Jesus) said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the LORD OF THE HARVEST to send out workers into His harvest.”

Matthew 9:37-38

Does the word "work" scare you in relation to serving the Lord? For instance, when a pastor announces, "We need more workers for Vacation Bible School or to go on a mission trip, do you sink down in your pew and hope your eyes don't meet his? How much of a "worker" for the LORD OF THE HARVEST are you? Jesus wasn't trying to get his disciples to do busy work. Rather, Jesus looked at people and had compassion for them. And, He had good news. "My Heavenly Father loves you. Your sins can be forgiven. There is hope. You are not alone." Jesus's message of good news is as relevant today as it was when He walked the earth. And there is still a need for workers to go into God's field with the good news. Will you be one of them?

LORD OF THE HARVEST, thank You for coming to earth and working to tell us truth and the good news of salvation. Help us be faithful to tell others.

Praise to LORD OF SABAOTH

“Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.”

 

When I first read "Lord of Sabaoth" in James 5:4, I thought the reference was to the Sabbath. However, "Sabaoth" means host or hosts, especially in relation to warfare or service. Study this name in depth and you will find it's a reference to Jehovah Sabaoth's reign over the host of angels, the air, nations, and demons. To think that the LORD OF SABAOTH heard the cries of workers who were treated unfairly by their bosses is amazing. Keep praying, friends.  The Lord of Sabaoth hears our prayers.   

Jehovah Sabaoth, I praise You! You are Lord of hosts. I worship You.

Praise to LORD OF LORDS

"And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Revelation 19:16

Anyone can call themselves "lord." Anyone can "lord" themselves over another. But no one is inherently the LORD of LORDS except our LORD. When Jesus Christ, Son of God, our Savior, comes again to earth, He won't be coming as a baby. He'll be leading a heavenly host army. And on His robe and on His thigh, we'll read this name: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS

You, Christ Jesus, are LORD OF LORDS. We bow in worship. We rise in praise.
