More Than A Song: The Lord Our God

If you’re anything like me (and I’m guessing every other Christian on the planet), you’ve encountered the following situation at least once in your Christian walk: you come to a crossroads in some area of life, pray about it, get godly counsel on the decision, feel certain you know what direction God is guiding you in, and off you go barreling down that path. Whatever it is, you’re certain it leads to fulfillment, optimal joy, and free rides on sparkly unicorns. Then you find yourself in the thick of it and it’s hard. It’s dark. It’s lonely. It’s not the warm fuzzy experience you were certain God had in mind when you signed on.

What now? Did God trick you? Lie to you? Abandon you? If He led you here, is He still good? Can He still use this—even this—for His glory?

Don’t move. Stay right there and listen. Wait for Him. He is there with you. He will not leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).

Read these lyrics from the worship song The Lord Our God by Kristian Stanfill*

The Lord our God is ever faithful
Never changing through the ages
From this darkness You will lead us
And forever we will say
You're the Lord our God

Promise maker, promise keeper
You finish what You begin
Our provision through the desert
You see it through ‘til the end

In the silence, in the waiting
Still we can know You are good
All Your plans are for Your glory
Yes, we can know You are good

We won't move without You
You're the light of all
And all that we need
