Isn’t it weird that throughout our walk with God we have seen Him answer our prayers but when a new problem comes up we quickly forget how powerful He is? I can’t be alone with this. We tend to panic and wonder how this even bigger problem will get resolved. But God never changes. He will always be great and powerful and while we are in the storm we ask if this is one problem He can’t solve. Boy, are we wrong.
If you haven’t heard “Do It Again” by Elevation Worship, stop and go do that now (it’s embedded below). Elevation has probably the best worship songs because they’re not just sweet words, they proclaim truths about God. But lately this song has been on repeat. At first it was because the bridge was so catchy, like the type of bridge you blast in your car and sing out loud. As I started learning the lyrics more, I ended up realizing how deeply amazing this song is. So let me talk you through it and how it’s relating to me.
Walking around these walls, I thought by now they’d fall. But you have never failed me yet. Waiting for change to come. Knowing the battle’s won. For you have never failed me yet.
Like I said, sometimes we tend to doubt God when we have problems. We wonder why He’s taking so long and letting us suffer through the issue. But God never fails and He’s never late. For me, becoming aware of these feelings through this song made things click. Sometimes we wait but we do it complaining and grumbling, instead of resting that God hasn’t failed me.
I’ve seen you move, you move the mountains and I believe I’ll see you do it again. You made a way, when there was no way and I believe I’ll see you do it again.
If you every need something to declare during your struggles, it’s this lyric. Bless. Just a few words that wrap up God’s greatness and how He will always come through, even in the most unbelievable ways. For me, this song touches on all my uncertainties because in the back of my head I wonder what God is up to and worry that He won’t resolve it. But God has literally always come to my rescue, even when it seemed like a lost cause.
“Do It Again” just reminds you to worship in the hard times because God is God and He’s more faithful than anyone else we can trust. God’s done way more amazing things, like create our universe, so trusting Him to solve our earthly problems is no concern. We must worship and be glad in Him.
Listen to “Do It Again”
P.S. If you need a bit more reassurance here’s a bonus lyric to ponder: Promise still stands. Great is your faithfulness, faithfulness. I’m still in your hands.
