The words of this song are those that sometimes need to be listened to on repeat. It echos the promises of many of the psalms, that God is our refuge, our hiding place, our safety.
United Pursuit have a great sound. Its slightly raw. Deeply authentic.
Their songs about God’s grace and love make my heart rest.
There is no other name by which we can be saved.
No other name that heals us inside and out.
No other name that sets the captive free.
No other name that brings hope and wholeness.
His name is Jesus.
He must increase and I must decrease.
May we live to know Him and make Him known.
There are days when you need a reminder of how awesome God is and how FOR you He is. That He is victorious and mighty.
There is no spiritually neutral group in the world. No spiritually neutral atmospheres. We face a battle for our hearts, minds, behaviours. We are pressed against on every side as Paul would say. But God is with us and for us. He is our shield. Our champion.
Psalm 18 has been my go to passage in the Bible to remind me of these things.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my shield, the power that saves me,
and my place of safety. Psalm 18:2
You light a lamp for me.
The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness.
29 In your strength I can crush an army;
with my God I can scale any wall.
30 God’s way is perfect.
All the Lord’s promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
31 For who is God except the Lord?
Who but our God is a solid rock?
32 God arms me with strength,
and he makes my way perfect.
33 He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
enabling me to stand on mountain heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle;
he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow. Psalm 18:28-34
The Lord is our champion. Undefeated.
The lyrics of this song are amazing. It is one of those songs that I hadnt paid attention to on the album but every time it came on it would make me pause and listen and feel.
It moves my heart that Chris Quilala is the one leading this song as prior to this album they had a beautiful newborn baby die at birth. He sings out of tragedy with raw faith. Every time he sings I BELIEVE IN YOU my heart stretches to grow in faith. Faith doesnt mean the absence of problems or pain but in those moments it believes that God is good, that He never changes and has all the power.
I’m loving the faith declarations in this song. It inspires my heart and reminds my mind and soul who God is, that He is the one that speaks and creates.
This is a song that has grown on me. It was playing one day, in the background, and I felt my spirit respond. Does that ever happen to you? So I paused what I was doing, listened in, leaned in, and was like wow, those words match my heart.
I have come to this place in my life
I’m full but I’ve not satisfied
This longing to have more of You
And I can feel it my heart is convinced
I’m thirsty my soul can’t be quenched
You already know this but still
Come and do whatever You want to Read the rest of this entry »
I’m not afraid.
I’m not afraid.
Show me your glory.
I’m not afraid because Hebrews 4 encourages me to come boldly to the throne of God, where I will find grace in my time of need. In my weakness I can come. In my failing, I can come. In my sin, I can come.
I can come because Jesus has washed me clean and made me whole. His death opens the door and tore the veil.
I’m not afraid because I am invited and accepted.
