Songs & Scripture: “Break Every Chain” (Will Reagan)

Worship with Scripture

Chain Link Chain Link (Photo credit: small world)

“Break Every Chain” is a powerful, building song, especially for those who have ever struggled or currently struggle with an addiction. Kim Walker Smith does a really great rendition of this song, but I found Tasha Cobbs’ version even better. It’s a very simple song lyric-wise, since it mostly repeats on itself.

Faith Stirrer (The Jonah in us)

In Jonah 1, God called Jonah and told him to go to the city (Nineveh) where most of the inhabitants turned away from God. Jonah rejected this call and instead went the opposite direction. He thought he could escape from God; instead God showed His power by hurling a powerful wind over the sea as Jonah was travelling on a ship.

Sometimes, we tend to display Jonah’s act and reject God’s calling to spread the gospel to our loved ones, families and relatives because we fear they may reject or make fun of us for being Christians. In Romans 1:16, Paul said “For I am not ashamed of this good news about Christ. It is the power of God at work saving everyone who believes” (NLT).

After Paul’s conviction on his way to Damascus, he decided to follow God in spirit and in truth and indeed he got the reward at the end.

We are called to be witnesses of the gospel and also the last command Jesus gave to us before He left to Heaven, was to “ Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” Mathew 28:19. If we do love God, we would want to see our loved ones serve God just as Joshua said “As for him and his house-hold, they will serve the Lord.

Also, responding to God’s command is basically saying Yes to His word and the promise for those who point people to God’s direction by the power of the Holy Spirit can be seen in John 15:16 that if our fruits abide in Him, whatever we ask the Father in His Name, He may give you. Proverbs 11:30 further echoes with the promises of a soul winner that He who wins soul is Wise.

Jesus said in John 15:2, every branch in Him that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit; He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. This verse reinforces why we are Christians. We are the light of the World and we are to lead the way by bearing fruits. Fruit bearing might be in different ways but the most important of all is to lead the fruits to Christ.

Another perfect example is Matthew 25:14-30, three different servants were entrusted with different talents based on their strengths and capabilities, all with the sole aim of increasing and multiplying. Two of three servants invested and the master was happy with their return except for the last servant who felt His master was reaping where he had not sown. To cut the long story short, the third servant was taking away and he paid dearly for it.

Going back to Jonah’s case, though he ran away from God at the earlier stage, he still reached out to the passengers on the ship, In Jonah 1:9, He told them that he was a Hebrew and he worshipped the Lord, the God of Heaven who made the sea and the land. With Jonah’s description of God in verse 9, they cried out to God to save them and they reverently and worshipfully feared the Lord exceedingly and offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows to Him.

I used Jonah as an example because though, he earlier ran from God, he still preached to the people he met on the ship and did not deny God when questioned.

Sometimes, we all try to reject God’s call but also remember that God is a loving Father and if we do claim to love God, we also have to proclaim His love everywhere we go.

Make the Move today because we neither know the day nor the hour when Jesus Christ will come back.

Obtaining a good report when faced with negative circumstances

They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust in the Lord to care for them . Psalm 112 vs 7

To be honest, i was scared when i read this verse initially because as humans we all hate to hear or get bad reports. However, as Christians this verse elaborates that we will one way or the other be faced with a bad or negative situation and it further stresses that we should not be afraid.
Romans 8:28 says “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”.

In Hebrews 11, we could see that the elders obtained a good report by FAITH.
Faith is the key word. The elders obviously encountered even more difficult situations when compared to this present time but still they obtained a good report by their faith.
Another biblical example is Moses. When Moses was born, the Pharaoh ordered all the newly born sons of Israel to be killed~there we go with another bad report but his parents were not afraid rather they confidently trusted God and by faith, they obtained a good report by hiding him for three months.
Apart from Moses, we had David,Gideon,Daniel, Esther and more who all overcame negativity with positivity

Did you receive a bad report or you’re stuck in the middle of a negative situation ? Faith is the key thing because it rests on agreement between you and God.
It also creates room for boldness,love, endurance and alot more.
Dont compromise your Christian faith because God is not asleep, He sees everything and in His time He makes all things beautiful (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

I hope this stirs up your faith 🙂
