Your love defends me

Chorus
Surely my God is the strength of my soul
Your love defends me, Your love defends me
And when I feel like I’m all alone
Your love defends me, Your love defends me

Good Monday Morning to this week 46/2018

This song has been accompanied me throughout this weekend. I really like that aspect of God’s love, it’s not just a cozy, sweet-ish kind of romantic feeling, no it’s far more. God’s love defends us! Wow

This weekend’s featured and favorite song story comes from Matt Maher. Here is what he says to the song:  “Your Love Defends Me.”

“This song comes out of Psalm 91, and the idea of God being not a refuge, but our ONLY refuge. I think we can all relate to moments in our lives where who we were (or who we’ll become) comes crashing to the forefront of who we are, and all of a sudden there’s this fight happening inside for who gets control – the past or the future or the present moment now. Evil is in the business of accusation but God is in the business of raising up testimony – of who He is and what He’s done. This song talks about how God is a defender. How the love of God is not just a defense, but it’s really the only defense we have that can stand against the inconsistency of ourselves. It’s not our job to defend everything, uphold everything, protect everything. It’s His, his grace strengthens us, His love defends us. Matt Maher

Verse 1: 
You are my joy, You are my song
You are the well, the One I’m drawing from
You are my refuge, my whole life long
Where else would I go?

Verse 2: 
Day after day, night after night
I will remember, You’re with me in this fight
Although the battle, it rages on
The war already won
I know the war is already won

Bridge:
We sing Hallelujah
You’re my portion
My salvation
Hallelujah

Chorus 
Surely my God is the strength of my soul
Your love defends me, Your love defends me
And when I feel like I’m all alone
Your love defends me, Your love defends me

God is your defense  …. 

Psalm 91: 14+15
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

 

and what He says about you is what matters!

Have a blessed week!
Philemon
