Give Me Faith

Why is it so hard to have faith during the difficult times? Every time persecution or brokenness comes, immediately we say… Why God? Why is this happening to me? We are introducing a new song by Elevation Worship this weekend that has been challenging me in my trust and faith in God, especially during the difficult times. The lyrics read…

CHORUS
“Give me faith to trust what you say
That your good and your love is great
I’m broken inside, I give you my life”

BRIDGE
“I may be weak, but your spirit’s strong in me
My flesh may fail, but my God you never will”

In 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 it reads, “And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.”

When we are weak, God’s spirit is strong in us. When we face persecution or difficulties or brokenness, the power of Christ is dwelling in us because he increases when we decrease. We are going to fail because we are not perfect people, but God is our constant perfection. He is our constant strength. He is the one we need to put our faith and trust in… in every circumstance life throws at us.

Meaning Behind: We Cry Holy

Holy can be such a “churchy” word, but it defines God so well that I couldn’t help but use it in a song. Some say it is over-used in worship songs, but I believe that it is not used enough. Here is the definition of holy…

ho·ly/ˈhōlē/ (Adjective)

1. Exalted or Worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness.

2. Divine, having a divine quality.

3. Venerated as or as if Sacred.

Psalm 99:9 says, “Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His holy mountain, for the Lord our God is HOLY”. Worship is a response to our God, and in this song we are responding to the holiness of God. He is divine. He is sacred. He is perfect in goodness and righteousness. Why would we not what to worship Him?!

The lyrics of this song are based on simple and straight-forward messages. The verses set up the fact that we believe in God. We are declaring His divine qualities and believing that He is true. The chorus simply states that our God is Holy. And the bridge is the culmination of it all… Worthy God, we stand in awe of You… my favorite part, because after the realization that our God is Holy, we have no other response then to worship and STAND IN AWE of Him. He is WORTHY of our worship.
