Come Up into the Mount of the LORD

Genesis 22:14    Abraham called the name of the place, The–LORD–Will–Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of The LORD it shall be provided.”

Are you in need of strength today? Maybe your heart is broken over what seems to be an impossible promise from the LORD. What if the LORD has asked you to do something which appears to negate this promise? Where would you find the strength to obey? What do you do when it feels like your heart has been broken beyond repair?

Abraham must have found himself in this place when the Lord asked him to sacrifice Isaac in Genesis 22:1-14

The following really encouraged me! Look what Abraham does before he goes to sacrifice Isaac.

Genesis 22:4-5    On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place{ Mt. Moriah} from a distance. Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey, and I and the lad will go over there; and we will worship and return to you.”

From: NetBible Gen 22:5

worship — shachah [07812] — proskuneo [4352]

to do reverence to, to adore, to pay homage to

Today if you need strength, lift up your eyes to the King
Come up into the mount of the Lord thru worship
Come before His presence with singing!

Follow the Lamb to springs of living water
Drink in His mercy and grace
He will wipe away every tear …

for “In the Mount of The LORD it shall be provided{seen}. -Gen 24:14”

***

Revelation 7:17    For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; He will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

Psalm 121:1-2 AMP    I WILL lift up my eyes to the hills [around Jerusalem, to sacred Mount Zion and Mount Moriah]–From whence shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 123:1-2 AMP   To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens! Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters; As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress; So our eyes look to the LORD our God, until He has mercy on us.

Hebrews 4:16 AMP    Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].

Psalm 100:2-3 AMP    Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before His presence with singing! Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God!

LORD OF THE MOUNTAIN
LORD OF THE SEA
LORD OF THE STARRY NIGHT
GLORIOUS MYSTERY

LORD OF THE AGES
SON WHO WAS RAISED
HEAVEN DECLARES YOUR JOY
FOREVER YOU’LL BE PRAISED

I will go up, to the mountain of the Lord
Drink of the spring, from the Saviour of my soul
Come let us bow, to our Maker and our God
Cling to the cleft, of our refuge and our rock

Chorus:

I will go up, to the mountain of the Lord
Find wings again, on the eagle of His word
Come let us fly, to the glory of the Son
Stand on the rock, resting on the work He’s done
