Song lyrics | God Speaking lyrics
This is my new favorite song.
I don't give much time to too many Christian songs these days because I really feel like alot of them are shallow and lacking in the true God-focused worship that is helpful to me.
I heard this song the other day and several phrases of it really touched me. I love that it acknowledges that God uses everything in our lives...even being tangled up in fear...to speak to us about who He is. A great part of my life was lived in deep fear and while I live in victory of that now, I have sincere compassion for those who struggle. It's a dark place. I love the reminder that God is involved even in those times.
But mostly, I appreciate the phrase..
"Who knows how He'll get a hold of us
get our attention to prove that He is enough-
He'll do and He'll use whatever He wants to
To tell us 'I love you'".
I have a love list of people that are dear to me. Family and old friends that are struggling in life and are far from God. I call their names out to God each day, pleading for His intervention.
I was talking with Matt this morning and confessing that as I look around and really take in "the storm" that is humanity today, I wonder if God has lost His power. Has He turned His back on us? Does He care to change hearts? Is it too late? And what about those loved ones that are away? Is He active with them? Are there unknown ambassadors of truth when we can't be around to speak?
God then uses His Word to remind me that He is forever mighty to save. That His silence is to grant one more minute of mercy for repentance. That He loves us. He knows us. He knows just how to "get a hold of us...get our attention".
He is enough.
So, if you know someone like me...somebody that you long to see embrace the sufficiency of God and the joy in the journey to become like Christ-give my song a listen! It will encourage your heart to remember that our lives are in God's hands and He knows exactly what we need to see who He is. He is our passionate pursuer and He never fails to use circumstances to show us His love. Don't lose hope!
