ALWAYS BY MY SIDE

As you know, if you have spent any time visiting my blog that I am a lover of uplifting, worship music.  I have shared Chris Tomlin’s music quite often here. Once again, I would like to share some encouraging words from him. The lyrics to one of his most recent songs, “Whom Shall I Fear? [God of Angel Armies]”, has resonated with me, and has remained close to my heart in some challenging times.  The words are like prayers to me in that they are promises of God that I have embraced personally.  They have brought me comfort and strength when my heart and mind needed them most.

Isaiah 54:17 (Amplified Bible)

But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.

I am sharing two clips with you — the song itself, and the artist sharing how he believes God brought these words to life.

Whom Shall I Fear? [God of Angel Armies]

Verse 1:

You hear me when I call
You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It cannot hide the light

Whom shall I fear

Verse 2:

You crush the enemy
Underneath my feet
You are my Sword and Shield
Though trouble lingers still

Whom shall I fear

Chorus:

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies
Is always on my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a Friend of mine
The God of angel armies
Is always by my side

Verse 3:

My strength is in Your name
For You alone can save
You will deliver me
Yours is the victory

Chorus:

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies
Is always on my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a Friend of mine
The God of angel armies
Is always by my side

Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear

Bridge:

And nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hands
I’m holding onto Your promises
You are faithful
You are faithful
You are faithful

Chorus:

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies
Is always on my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a Friend of mine
The God of angel armies
Is always by my side

Chorus:

I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies
Is always on my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a Friend of mine
The God of angel armies
Is always by my side

Outro:

The God of angel armies is always by my side
