Scripture: Deuteronomy 3:16 – “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them. For the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
On a daily basis doubts, fears and worries creep into our minds. We wonder will I be able to do what I need to? Will they like me? What if this project turns out to be a disaster? The list, I am sure you will agree, goes on.
To ask such questions is human and is in a way a good thing since we are acknowledging our own weakness rather than being filled with pride and confidence in our own ability. However we must never forget the Lord’s promise never to leave or forsake us. Our confidence should come from the fact that the almighty Lord our God is always with us. Loud harp’s atmospheric worship song ‘Always with you’ does a great job of reminding us of God’s promise to us.
Starting off quietly and almost as though unsure, the same simple lyrics are repeated over and over, while different musical elements are added in with every repetition. As the song builds up you get the feeling that each time Asher Seevink and Dave Walton who make up Loud Harp sing of God’s promise they grow in their ability to overcome any nagging doubts. This simple worship song is beautiful and a wonderful tool to use to meditate on God’s promise never to leave nor forsake us.
Remember He is with us ALWAYS!
