Have you been enjoying Worship Wednesdays? This week I have a burden. A burden to remind my friends that God does not fall off of His thrown. That He is good and always will be. That He will never let you down!
This song is currently one of my absolute favorites. The cry of my soul is that God alone would be the wind inside my sails, the anchor in the waves, and the fire inside my veins! I want HIM to be my song. I want everyone who sees me to feel God's goodness.
I love the bridge- "You're never gonna let me down."
But you have been let down, right? I have too.
I've been heartbroken, abandoned, isolated, left out and uninvited. I've been let down. I've had to wait, and I've had to struggle. I've been sick and I've lost babies and I've had to fight. But GOD NEVER LET ME DOWN.
The enemy has attacked. The Lord has allowed challenges. He's allowed them to grow my faith, to develop my character, and to enhance my weaknesses so HE can be glorified. And through it all, He was and is good. And He never let me down. I know I will have disappointments and hurts and struggles in the future. God never promised us an easy life. But He did say He'd be there with us through all of it!
In fact, when I look back at every one of the struggles, heartbreaks, and failings in my life– He was there. He was right there. Every bit of good that has come in my life has been from Him.
There's a live version of this song on YouTube with Steffany Gretzinger that includes some spontaneous worship, and I'm SO drawn to these lines:
"When nothing's going right and it all falls apart– You're good.
When everything is going right– You're still good.
So we will prophesy this morning into every situation. That you have never changed and you never will. Because you are good."
It's not in His nature to let us down. And He never will.
Worship with us today, and lay your disappointments at His feet.
