As I was on my way to see a doctor a couple of weeks ago, this song came on KTIS Radio.  I heard the entire song, it was a gift – a blessing from the God of the Universe.  The God who hung the stars and planets in place, who maintains their orbits, and know them all by name, also knows my name, and care for me individually. If you’re not amazed by this, then you and I need to talk!

Here are the Lyrics to “WHAT FAITH CAN DO” by Kutless

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes
And make a new beginning

Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you’re stronger
Stronger than you know

Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason
For someone not to try

Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright

Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don’t have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That’s what faith can do

Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

While this song line by line has nothing in it that I did not know, and probably shared in ministry over the years, but when you are in a dark place, the message of Scripture, set to music lifts the heart.  I have never met Kutless, but if I ever do I need to thank them for their obedience to Christ, to share from his heart to mine.

1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

With those powerful words the writer to the Hebrews tells of the “ancients” who lived by faith in the promise of Messiah to come.  What a joy as I live this side of the resurrection and I know the very name of Messiah – Jesus the Christ!  Check out the rest of Hebrews 11.

Even in the darkest of days, when the pressure of this life seems to over power me, I am blessed with a faith that gives me the strength to stand and a peace that is beyond my comprehension.  I hope you are encouraged by this song, if you have never heard it check it out here, if you would like to purchase it (and support GodPonders at the same time) click the link at the end.  We do have strength to rise…

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NIV)

How can I not love my God who gives me his perfect strength at my time of greatest weakness.  May you be strengthened and encouraged in your journey by a faith that never ends, but holds your heart in Christ unto all eternity!
