may his presence go before you and behind you and beside you bible verse
We are so very blessed to receive the favor of the Most High God, but that means we are also tasked with responsibilities just as far-reaching. I pray for my generation and those generations to come to be safe, happy and healthy; to accept Christ as their Savior and for the salvation of their spouses-to-be whomever they shall be. God is extremely concerned with our Theology. Jon – I had the similar thoughts as you; that this is very much like taking Jer 29:11, and thinking that it is meant for us individually. Disagree? It will ruin you & transform you at the same time, as the faithfulness of God dawns on our unbelieving dark corners. May His favor be upon you I guess Holy Holy Holy could be cited as repetitious too? Yes, but it’s one thing to pray for the blessing of another; it’s another thing to declare they are blessed by God (like Eph 1:3 ‘…in Christ.’), First time reader here! Cody Carnes & Kari Jobe) didn’t write their song from a open source Greek and Hebrew manuscripts that they translated them self’s. But even when younger, and more so now, I find that when phrases get repeated a lot, as in this song, especially when done in an intense way, they it can work really well for a while, but sometimes they start to lose their meaning, and if that happens, then the band is probably still really giving it some, and some of the people round you are still really into it, and you’re left standing there with all that going on, thinking it was initially great, but now it’s just banal. The emphasis and focus of all these cults is Prosperity and comfort… your best life now.. and we all know that the Bible teaches that our best life is not here on this planet. Yes, they used scripture to write the song. God made both the intellectual AND the emotional within us. This song belongs to Elevation Worship. It’s one thing hearing/listening into such a blessing (and hopefully being drawn to enquire further!) Cody Carnes – The Cross Has the Final Word, Elevation Worship (Feat. It was co-written by Steven Furtick and Chris Brown (Elevation Worship). I really struggle with this song, which is why I’m here. I am not at all disregarding emotions as the Bible teaches us to Love our God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind.. Great to acknowledge context, but the Lord extends this blessing to us, it is unending. The song doesn’t claim anything for Americans – but seems to me to be a prayer of blessing over those listening. For those who felt it was overly repetitive, consider shifting the focus from a blessing over you, to a blessing offered to others and see if perhaps you might follow the same path to the presence of the Lord. Can you explain how an overall 9.5/10 rating is “condemning a song entirely derived from God’s own book”? This is too evident in much of today’s worship music. Psalm 136 repeats “ad nauseam” also, probably for this reason. Christian artists, in general, are “worthy of their wages” (Luke 10:7 and 1 Timothy 5:18). I agree that it’s not a worship song. Owl City (Feat. We are still children of the age of rationalism. That we would understand God is for us no matter the time of day, location, or personal scenario. Regardless of the time of day, location, or emotional state, God is for us (Psalm 56:9, Psalm 118:6-7, Psalm 121:8, Ezekiel 36:9, and Romans 8:31). Used by permission. The major problem I see is that most people emphasize the emotional aspect of worship. There is no reason to think that this ancient blessing would not apply to gentile believers today, those of us who are adopted sons of God (John 1:12-13, John 14:18, Romans 8:14-17, Romans 8:23, Romans 9:1-8, Galatians 3:26, Galatians 4:5-7, Ephesians 1:3-14, Ephesians 2:11-22, Hebrews 9:15, and 1 John 3:1-3) and in effect, are adopted Israelites (Romans 11:11-24). This is a common blessing given at the end of church services. This time it moved me. Repetition is not new in the praise of God. Thank you for your compliment and Scripture reference! Satan is always 90% right and 10% wrong… think about the deception of Eve in the garden. Joshua 22:4 And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren, as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto your tents, and unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan. Be blessed Vince and thank you for letting reply. It was so weird at first but the more I read and searched about it it made absolute sense. This also includes poor and unhealthy behaviors and patterns of thinking. He is with us wherever we go (Joshua 1:9). The instrumentation is as much a part of what is copyrighted as the lyrics, so even if the words themselves are in the public domain, the way they are arranged and the instrumentation is original to that artist. Singing a blessing corporately to one another and over one another is not only perfectly acceptable but is in fact part of our instruction. There is a tendency for Christian to look at people outside the Church, with an attitude tainted with contempt. Yes, we are able to listen to the song for free like you stated however the real catch is tossing down $50 bucks for the real anointing they are offering where everything looks so so perfect because that has to be God. On the other hand, emotion without truth produces empty frenzy and cultivates shallow people who refuse the discipline of rigorous thought. . I’ve been using a format within, I think, the last year or so, where I end the review with my recommendation for corporate worship. There’s quite a lot of repetition in worship from the angels around the throne so brace yourself for heaven! You’ve probably heard of YouTube, Pandora, and Spotify. Worship songs have God as the intended target; this song is clearly a blessing upon the congregation, which is fine, but it’s not directed at God. Intense feelings about the words are great, but there’s a danger of overdoing it. . I suppose Elevation Worship could ask for donations rather than selling their music. Note to new users: This is a different kind of review site! That includes derivative work, including Elevation Worship’s The Blessing. People today need to be blessed, from the rising of the sun till the time it goes down. Why do we support these business organizations (to not be too harsh)??? Thank you Lord for the musicians and the gifts you give them to speak to us through music. This is my reaction too – it brings me to tears. Exodus 13:21,22 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: …. At different times, it was different parts of the song that would come to mind. Bless you for your statement! Cornelius “Neal” Plantinga Jr, president emeritus of Calvin Theological Seminary, often gives a specific benediction that blesses worshipers. Insofar as I am aware, the people who pay for the tickets are not just looking for a spiritual experience. I’ve since upgraded the scoring and, as you no doubt noticed, I gave a 10 for that section on this review. CCLI #: 7147007. It sounds Celtic. I’m weary because if we’re worshipping ourselves, we have entered into idol-worship, and we know how much God HATES that (Exodus 20:4). But, if they don’t copyright it, someone else might and do whatever they want with it. The promise doesn’t transfer simply because two different groups are refered to by the same name. If so, is my focus on God, or is it on what He gives me? Great review and I’m so glad to see one. Agree? The psalms also talk about things that God hates (like a lying tongue). She writes blogs every day about passages she is currently reading in the Bible. This blessing was given by the priest Aaron to the “sons of Israel”. Just a friendly thought! The repetition is worship; I sense God’s heavy Presence, love and blessing more and more, the longer it goes on. I think that the blessing was intended for believers; However, I see no opposing Scripture that forbids an unbeliever from hearing such a blessing, even if they are outside the camp of Christ and may not partake of its benefits. But then I listened to the song again, and I sang along, in a sense praying the blessing over my family (perhaps encouraged by the reminder of His favor to a thousand a generations of those who love Him). And to the point from another post about whether it is right for a congregation to sing this… I would ask, are we not a royal priesthood as believers? The problem, then, lies with not with the lyrics. Who are we worshipping when we sing it? The Lord turn His Thank you! . I admit that my constant criticism over repetition is subjective (although any opinion will be subjective) and it affects the scoring. So I have had a hard time with this song from the beginning. Paul made a point of saying that we as gentiles are adopted into the family of God, and into the Abrahamic lineage (Rom 8:14-17, Gal 3:27-29). it’s their copyright, not mine. Blessed words. But if you keep this song in context, it isn’t for the church… it was for Aaron and the priests (Numbers 6) as a blessing for Israel. Comfort to all, Maggie. God is for lost people, he is so for them that he sent his only son so that they might believe and have eternal life. Check out the New Zealand Version – The Blessing Aoteorea. Good thoughts, but I disagree on one major point. IF (big if) the song is being sung AS worship THEN it is actually idolatry, because it is worship of the congregation, the blessing, “your children, and their children and their children.” Tauren Wells) – Echo, https://www.stubhub.com/elevation-worship-tickets/performer/100273774/, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1ZjB0UOzOg&list=WL&index=9&t=0s, Elevation Worship (Feat. It is totally fine that someone gets super irritated by repetition. If we take our cue from the psalms, the answer would be a resounding no. Keep up the great work – shine for His glory! He is for you, He is for you God alone! Exodus 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: Joshua 1:5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
