Worship Night - Month of August 2012

 

Every first Thursday of the month, the Victory Fellowship Church in the whole of Metro Manila gather in the different centers to hold the 'Worship Night'. Two hours of songs of praises and worship spent together as one body. So despite the rain, attendees in Victory Fort head to Every Nation Building for this month's installment.

The focus of this particular Worship Night is: God the Jehovah Jireh (the Provider) as depicted in the story of Abraham in Genesis 22 when the Lord asked him to sacrifice Isaac, his beloved, one and only son. We know the story that this is just to test Abraham's faith.

Pastor-Doc Jun Aguilar highlighted in verse 13 that in the right moment God provided a ram for Abraham to sacrifice instead of his beloved Isaac. With this,
14 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided. ”

Another take away for me that night is to make sure you are in the right mountain - in Abraham's case, in Moriah! In that particular mountain, the Lord prepared the bush that will caught the ram and the ram itself that will be used by His servant, Abraham.

It means that the provision can be found in the place where the Lord asks you to be. Often times, we take control of the course of our lives. Making decision out from our personal whims or preferences without asking God where He wants to direct us. With such decisions, we find ourselves lacking of provisions because it was not the place where the Lord prepared His provisions for us. End result: we get frustrated and disappointed or worse blame God for our situation.

In all things, submit it to the Lord in prayer and listen to His leading through the Holy Spirit. This is the crucial point even before we begin our journey for we would encounter lacks on our way but because we know the we have laid upon our decision at His feet we could be in faith that He will be true to His promise that He is the Jehovah Jireh, our provider.
