Beneath The Waters (I Will Rise)

This morning I was listening to the Hillsong Cornerstone album on my way back from dropping my husband off at work. I was so inspired by the song Beneath The Waters (I Will Rise), specifically the bridge.

No power can stand against You
No curse assault Your throne
No one can steal Your glory
For it is Yours alone
I stand to sing Your praises
I stand to testify
For I was dead in my sin

But now I rise, I will rise
As Christ was raised to life
Now in Him, now in Him
I live 

I get chills in my body even reading those lyrics and the truth of their words. Take each line and declare it over every circumstance in your life that is trying to exalt itself higher than the Lord, every challenge stealing your joy, each emotion that does not edify.

I am covered by the blood of the Lamb, and no power can stand against me, no curse can assault me, and no one will steal the glory that belongs to the Lord as he works in my life.


As I was thinking about some things that were concerning me in my life, specifically in regards to parenting, I felt such peace as I was singing and an assurance from the Lord that he would give me the wisdom and knowledge that I need. No problem can stand on it’s feet in the manifest presence of my Saviour.


Singing out truth and declaring the word is destiny defining. Take a moment and worship along with this song and allow the Lord’s promises to reign.
