This past Sunday, we sang the song “Forever” by Kari Jobe. In the past, we have sung this song many times. Also, I have heard it on Pandora a thousand and one times. However, this is the first time that I have really thought about the lyrics to this song.
The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Saviour of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon HimOne final breath He gave
As heaven looked away
The son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken
The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated
Forever He is glorified, forever He is lifted high, forever he is risen.
He is alive, He is alive!
We sing hallelujah
The Lamb has overcome
You have overcome
“The Lamb Has Overcome.“
He has OVERCOME….regardless of what it is.
- Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
- health issues.
- Big Daddy’s bad knees and hips.
- Ataxia Telangiectasia Like Disorder.
He. Has. OVERCOME.
Why do I choose to worry about the things that go on in my life?
As well as, things like finances, health issues, surgery dates, infusions, and health of loved ones?
In the meantime, God did not give me a spirit of worry, that is a ploy of Satan.
God, He Wins
He has already solved these issues. Therefore, knowing His divine will have been set into motion from before the creation of the Earth. As a result of His goodness, we can sing Hallelujah. Likewise, in the crappiest of situations, where we see no hope…He becomes the Hope because He OVERCAME it all for us. What a revelation. Wow….just freaking wow!
Be blessed in knowing your personal friend…Your Jesus…has OVERCOME just for you. If you were the only person on the face of the planet…He would still OVERCOME all your trials and tribulations.
Wow. Gives me a whole new appreciation and perspective.
