What’s New | April 26

Life isn’t lived always on the mountaintops. Sometimes we’re in a valley staring at disappointment, facing a hopeless situation. But our God has proven over and over again that miracles are not a problem for Him. Resurrection is what He does and who He is. Elevation Worship’s hope for you when you hear their song “RATTLE!” is that it gets your heart racing with expectation and the faith to believe for greater things…for impossible things in Jesus’ name.

Big Daddy Weave wrote their song “All Things New” as a prayer over the Weaver’s dad as he was dealing with pulmonary fibrosis. Mike Weaver says, “He would listen to the demo of it over and over again. Little did I know, that would be the last song I wrote that my dad would get to hear this side of heaven. I believe the moment he took his last breath here, was just the beginning of how real the meaning of this song is for him now in the very presence of Jesus.”

Because of what Jesus has done for us on the cross, our broken places are not the defining words spoken over us. Our brokenness is an incredible opportunity for the redeeming work of Jesus to be shown in our lives. So even in the darkest moment, we can say in faith, from the ashes, from the dust, I will rise up because of Jesus, who makes all things new.

Hebrews 13:8 reminds us “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” No matter how difficult circumstances seem, God has never stopped being who He says He is. That’s the declaration in Sanctus Real’s song “My God Is Still The Same.” If there’s one bit of good news we have during uncertain times it is that God is the same today as He was yesterday… and that is a hope worth sharing. 

Lead singer Dustin Lolli says, ‘This song is our direct response to a world that has been shaken around us. It’s a reminder that as Christians we do not have to fear, because we serve a God who never changes. He still moves mountains.”
