Awhile ago as I was driving home one night a song came on the radio and the Lord used it to knock my socks off. The chorus came on and I was bawling in the car and praising Jesus. I couldn’t not sing at the top of my lungs to Jesus while the tears streamed down my face. It was a moment that Jesus met me in the car.
The back story? I had been very bitter and angry for a good couple months. I refused to forgive and was having my own pity party. I finally realized the only person this pity party of un-forgiveness was hurting was myself. So I started to forgive, and live in that forgiveness a few weeks before this night in the car. Not by my own strength by any means, but with God’s help I was working on it, and choosing every day to live in forgiveness. Because of this I started sensing all sorts of spiritual warfare. The enemy was throwing lots and lots of arrows at me. Through that I started to worry and stress about things that looking back really didn’t matter.
It was in the midst of that worry and stress that the Lord met me in the car through this song. The chorus says:
You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am
All of a sudden, as this song chorus was playing and I was singing at the top of my lungs with tears rolling down my face, the worries and stress just melted away. My God is the one who conquers giants, this worry of mine doesn’t come close to a giant so He has it covered, I don’t need to worry. My God is the one who shuts the mouths of lions, my stress is not as big as a lion so He has it taken care of, I don’t need to stress.
My God is I AM!!
