I have been listening to this for awhile now and I love it when Isaac Wimberley came out to shared 'The Word' using his God given creative gifts. The word exemplifies the Christian Faith, as I listening to this it brought me to tears and stirred my longing for more of God. I actually stumbled on this when I was feeling down and deceided to listen to Kari Jobe's version of the Forever.

The Word" by Isaac Wimberley  (6:40)

"If there are words for Him then I don’t have them. 
You see, my brain has not yet reached the point where it could 
form a thought that could adequately describe the greatness of my God, 
and my lungs have not yet developed the ability to release a breath 
with enough agility to breathe out the greatness of his love. 

And my voice, you see, 
my voice, is so inhibited, restrained by human limits 
that it’s hard to even sing the praise of… 
You see… if there are words for Him then I don’t have them. 

My God, 
His grace is remarkable, mercies are enumerable, 
strength is impenetrable,
He is honorable, accountable, favorable, 

He is unsearchable yet knowable, indefinable yet approachable, indescribable yet personal, 
He is beyond comprehension, further than imagination, constant through generations, 
king of every nation. 

But if there are words for Him then I don’t have them. 
You see, my words are few, and to try to capture the one true God, 
using my vocabulary will never do, 
but I use words as an expression, 
an expression of worship to a savior, 
a savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise, so I use words. 

My heart extols the Lord, blesses his name forever, 
He has won my heart captured my mind and has bound them both together, 
He has defeated me in my rebellion, 
conquered me in my sin, 
He has welcomed me into his presence, 
completely invited me in. 
He has made himself the object of my sight, 
flooding me with mercies in the morning, 
drowning me with grace in the night. 

But if there are words for Him 
then I don’t have them. 
But what I do have is good news, 
for my God knew that manmade words would never do, 
for words are just tools that we use to point to the truth, 
so He sent His son Jesus Christ as “The Word”, living proof, 

He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation, 
for by Him all things are created, giving nothingness formation, 
and by His words he sustains, in the power of His name, 
for He is before all things and over all things he reigns, holy is his name, 
so praise him for his life… 

The way he persevered in strife, 
the humble son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice, 
praise him for his death… 

that He willingly stood in our place, that he lovingly endured the grave, 
that he battled our enemy and on the third day rose in victory

He is everything that was promised, 
praise Him as your risen king,
lift your voice and sing for one day he will return for us 
and we will finally be united with our savior for eternity, eternity. 

So it’s not just words that I proclaim, 
for my words point to “The Word” and “The Word” has a name, 
hope has a name, 
joy has a name, 
peace has a name, 
love has a name 
and that name is Jesus Christ." 
What do you do when the storms in life come? In life we face storms... they are unexpected and out of our control. Being a Christian does not mean that life is a bed of roses or storm free. In fact Jesus told his disciples that they will face trials (John 16:33). HOWEVER, the trials are there to strengthen us, give us the courage to overcome. You see every disappointment is an opportunity for a miracle. Does storms drives us away from God or closer to God? 

You may face storms in your life, it could be financial problems, marriage problems, no one understands you or even that little lie that says 'Give up, it will never work, nobody cares''. David in the bible returned home and found that his enemies destroyed and stole everything from him. His own men wanted to stone him. He had no one to turn to. Now imagine if you were in David's shoe what would you do? He could allow grief to conquer him and sink into depression, give up and quit. But no, he chose to encourage himself in the Lord and I believe it was in Psalm 34 that you see his response. One of the things I noticed in the Psalm is how David chose to praise God despite the circumstances. Praise is a weapon for warfare, Praise brings down what is high and make it small which causes us to overcome. Sometime it's hard to give Praise when life is hard but that is when it means the most. That's why the bible says to offer up a sacrifice of praise. It can be hard but in the end it's worth it, it's your energy, it's worth your time. Through praise, faith will arise and we will have the courage to overcome.

Terry Law in his book Power of Praise And worship wrote
God is not interested only in the praise that we give him in times when things are going well. He is after that praise that comes in the midst of great trial, great difficulty , grief, sickness, demonic oppression, temptation, relational difficulties, and financial problems. He still requires praise. When we give it to Him in time of difficulty it means all the more to Him. We are operating according to the principle of sacrifice.

1 Peter 4:12 (The Msg)
Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. 

So don't give up! You see God is not interested in the right circumstances but the right response, when you have the right response you are able to overcome the storms in life just as the great men of God like Job, Paul and David did. 
Can't wait for the new album by Bethel!! I had the chance to watch the whole session in iBethel.tv and it's awesome!

We will not be shaken is about encouraging people to 'not be shaken' in times of trouble, but trust in God. Brian Johnson was given a prophetic word to sing the phrase We will not be shaken and it spontaneously came out during a worship session in church.  We will not be shaken is now available in iTunes.

One of my favourite is No longer a Slave. Here is the lyrics for No Longer a Slave

Verse 1 
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 

Verse 2
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 child God
Kris Valotton shared this during his communion message and it really spoke to me. Hope this inpires you too!

The only way you can lose is to stop trying! Sin can't defeat you, the grave can't hold you, death can't have you and the devil can't stop you. You are incredibly loved, unreasonibility powerful and unimaginably protected. Your past is forgivinen, your present is blessed and future is predestined for glory. The Lord loves you, the angels serve you, the devil fears you and creation awakens for you. You can do the impossible, dream the unreasonable and ask for the unimaginable. You are royalty....never...never...never give up!
I have been on hiatus for so nearly 2 years now and I truly missed the time when I blogged and share my personal revelations from God. Keep this space posted, will be doing it more this year :)
