No longer slaves by Jonathan david & Melissa Helser
You unravel me, with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance, from my enemies
Till all my fears are gone
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
From my Mothers womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again, into your family
Your blood flows through my veins
You split the sea, so I could walk right through it
All my fears were drowned in perfect love
You rescued me, so I could stand and sing
I am a child of God
This has definitely been my song of the year for 2015.
Please download it and skim through the lyrics.
It truly is a privilege to serve Jesus guys. Like no jokes.
Daily, I am reminded of his awesomeness and faithfulness.
I remember the day this song by Jonathan David first struck me. It was a regular sunday afternoon. At the time, I was moved merely by the sonorous voice and beautiful melody. Later that week, my sister downloaded the mp3 on her phone and encouraged me to do so as well. I trust her taste in music (most times) so I gave it a shot.
My life wasn’t the same after that.
There’s this feeling of confidence the lyrics give to me. I’m not sure I can put words to it but it’s so strong.
I feel like I’m unstoppable. Like there’s nothing my God can’t deliver me from.
I look at every tough situation like ‘but will this kill me?’ ‘Am I the first to go through this?’ ‘Is this too difficult for the King of all Kings to handle?’ ‘If God is on my side, how can this not end well?’
God’s word (which we should all meditate on day and night) tells us that all things will work together for good for those that love thee. Why then are you worried when life gets tough?
Can’t you see the devil is trying to steal your joy? I mean, it’s obvious. He’s jealous that Jehovah Jaireh settled your woes before they even sprung up.
I know sometimes it feels like you’re losing. Like you’re falling off the grid and failure is eminent. Trust me, it’s a misconception planted by the devil. The more you feed into that frustration, the weaker you are.
My darlings stand firm! In the face of confusion, in the midst of tribulations, in the center of calamity, declare “I am no longer a slave to fear! I am a child of God!”
It is well.
I leave you with these:
Matthew 6:26- New Living Translation
Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
Matthew 6:30 – Holman Christian Standard Bible
If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t He do much more for you–you of little faith?
2 Timothy 1:7 – English Standard Version
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
