God is always faithful to his word (2 Thessalonians 3:3), standing next to us. When Daniel’s friends denied to worship the image that the king had made, the king threw them in the fiery furnace and ordered it to be heated seven times more.
Often I would feel angry and frustrated about what happened, to the point of wanting harm for those who played back but God taught me that this is how the enemy would try to come after me and that I had to understand that I shouldn’t harbor hatred against anyone. The fight is not with humans but satan and the grace of God is enough to win the fight
This song reminds me again and again that all we can do is Thank God for all that he has done for us. He brought us to light from the gravest darkness we were in, took our sin and shame on the cross, so that we can have the gift of eternal life. Even when we went astray, he was still taking care of us, he never left us.
Recently in one of our Bible studies we were discussing John 5 and how the Jewish leaders were persecuting Jesus as he was not ‘keeping the sabbath’ by healing the sick on the Lord’s day. To which Jesus replied…
God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’” – Exodus 3:14 God does not need us to define Him or give Him an identity. This is what He meant when he sent Moses to the captive Israelites…
I love this song and how it recounts the incident in John Chapter 8 from a different perspective, the one from our point of view.
This song reminds me of Paul and how he would have felt when he regained his sight. After his encounter with Jesus, on the road to Damascus, Paul lost his vision. But when Ananias prayed for him something like scales fell from his eyes and he could see again. His spiritual eyes were also opened on that day and he saw the Jesus way. Paul took baptism and traded in his old life for a new one. The man who breathed murderous threats against the disciples of Christ was now not ashamed to proclaim the same Gospel to everyone. That encounter opened his eyes to the Wonder of Jesus.
At the junction you’ve got these two rivers coming together and then you’ve got this tree right in the middle. Growing up in Alabama you don’t see trees like this everyday. While I’m walking out to take this photo this old farmer from the area is walking with me just chatting. He says to me, “you know these old trees like this, they’re strong for a reason. If you take all the dirt away, you would see just as much root as you would reach. ” Roots with no reach is useless. To Thrive as a believer is to have roots that dig in and to reach is to understand our goal. – Mark Hall
This song tells a timeless story — it helps us remember it anew and reflect on it in a different way. It’s the story of the Cross, of His resurrection, of the greatest love story in history. Romans 5:8 tells us that “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” This song is a story of the Cross, a story of love, and of rebirth. Anástasis, Jesus’ resurrection that leads us to respond to His great love for us! – Hillsong Worship
God is on the move. He is moving in the hearts and souls of Christians. He is moving in our churches. He is stirring our hearts to revival. We can hear it in the rumblings of the voices in our nation crying out for change. We can see in the way people are turning back to God. And, we can feel it in the way in which God is calling the people of the church to stand up. 7eventh Time Down sings about God moving in their song “God Is on the Move.” This song speaks to the ways and times God is moving. – Rare.Us
BEHIND THE SONG WITH KEVIN DAVIS The song is simply about the amazing grace and unfailing love that this God, this King of glory, this King above all Kings, has shown to us. The verses are all about His majesty and what He has done, how He spoke the world into existence, how He…
“I’m thinking about the first verse. It says, ‘If you’ve been walking the same old road for miles and miles. If you’ve been hearing the same old voice tell the same old lies.’ That was just such a part of my life for years, just dead end road after dead end road,I’ve conquered it. But it’s been through Jesus and not my own doing … He broke all those chains that I had basically given myself.” Zach Williams
