Chorus: In the morning, early in the morning…

Praise the Most High God, Who has poured His love upon us this morning!

Give thanks for the impending return to in-person services on Sunday, 2 April. How wonderful will it be that we should meet one another face to face once more!

Exodus 12:13 – Revelation 12:11 – Pray for the overcoming power that causes the wrath of God to pass over. Declare – I cover under the blood:

  • myself and everyone related to me
  • all the members of my family (mention them by name)
  • my home, my finances, my marriage and my ministry
  • the works of my hands

Captain of Israel’s Host – Theology

Hymn: The Captain of Israel’s Host

Key Scriptures: Exodus 13:17-18, 20-22, Joshua 5:13-15

The song pictures a people on a journey towards the land provided by their God. Pastor Sam shares.

Consider the line – “Our end, the glory of the Lord.” What is the chief end of man? Consider this article from the Westminster Catechism.


Consider Proverbs 3:5-6 and write something on “How do I acknowledge Him in all my ways?”
