Months ago a new song was released by Jeremy Camp. Within this song are truths the Lord desires for me to understand in my heart and not just in my head. Each time the song is sung, my spirit jumps. When did I forget the truth of this song? When did I allow the worries of the world to steal the truth Jesus purchased for me on the cross? Why am I trembling at the news of the state of the world, or even my own situation?
The song seemed to play on the drive home from school each day. Benjamin has learned it is the song I turn up and join in with declaration. Even one night my grandson and I heard it on the radio, where I joined in singing, wanting the truth of the words to be sung over my grandson. His world will be so much more of a spiritual battle then the one I grew up in.
I opened my devotional. There were the words again. News of attacks around the world, didn't mean these words aren't for today, it means they are still truth. Court decisions, political races, loss of jobs, illness and the list continues, to yell at us defeat, instead of victory.
