Voice of Truth

Do you ever get sick of all the different opinions and views coming your way? All the different voices telling you what to do?

Whether "Casting Crowns" is to your musical taste or not, the words of their song Voice of Truth are encouraging. They use the Biblical stories of Peter and David to make a good point about trust. You can listen to the song on YouTube, or buy it here.

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 this 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." 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.

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 a thousand warriors shaking in their armour, 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." 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

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. And 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. 

I will listen and believe the Voice of Truth, 'cause Jesus You are the Voice of Truth, and I will listen to You.

  1. I love Casting Crowns. They are great at conveying simple truths in really poetic ways. Also they are so Biblical. They write about real things and deal with them really well. These guys are really the best Christian Rock Artists out there in terms of lyrics. Nice Post.
