Music Mondays #10: Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns

Voice of Truth
by Casting Crowns

verse 1

Oh, what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I’m in
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown
Where Jesus is
And He’s holding out His hand

But the waves are calling out my name
And they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The waves, they keep on telling me
Time and time again
Boy, you’ll never win
You’ll never win

chorus
But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says do not be afraid
And the voice of truth says this is for My glory
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

verse 2
Oh, what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes
To stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand

But the giant’s calling out my name
And he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I’ve tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me time and time again
Boy, you’ll never win
You’ll never win

chorus

bridge
But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don’t seem so high
From on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

chorus

I didn’t like this song until I actually listened to the words.  Powerful!  I know everyone has some giants in your life…some folks telling you that you can’t, laughing at you, and doing everything but supporting you.  Or maybe you’re believing something that somebody else said about you that’s not true and has you suffering from low self-esteem.  You’re too fat, too skinny, too dark, too light, too tall, too short, too smart, not smart enough, worthless, undesirable, lazy, ugly…whatever!  You’ve chosen to believe those things, but you forgot about what God says!  God is crazy about you and would NEVER say anything bad about you.  He says that you are brilliant, awesome, unique, smart, and beautiful, and He big plans for you!!  Listen and believe the voice of TRUTH!

Reply and share something that you once believed, but the voice of truth told you a different story.
