We are so excited to release our latest song, “We Trust You.” We pray in full hope and with heart-filled expectation that God has used and will continue to use “We Trust You” in your life journey.
LP Worship & Arts wrote this song to serve as a monument of remembrance of what God has done throughout the Move series. We hope and trust the Lord that this song will continue to challenge each one of us to take more steps toward living out Christ-centered generosity. In light of releasing the song, we wanted to share some of the heart behind it to help us get the concepts into our minds and hearts. Our prayer is that these concepts will not just get into our minds and hearts, but that they would seep into the way we live as individuals and as the church.
“We Trust You” has a few different identities as a song. In some ways, it’s an anthem of declaring joyful trust and reliance upon God to work and move in and through His people. In other ways, it carries the identity of a directional song that challenges us to respond to God’s faithfulness, and we see this sentiment in lines like, “We’re discarding all our selfish dreams, we want to look like Who You are.” Still in other ways, it serves as an aid to help us confess sinful patterns, as seen in lines such as, “You’re faithful when we’re faithless, despite our doubts and failures.” Finally, “We Trust You” wears the hat of being a song of surrender, through lines like, “We give our lives to Jesus” and “Give up your lives to Jesus.”
We, as the people of God, find ourselves in receipt of many gifts from our Gracious Lord. One of the greatest things about Who God is, is His faithfulness to do what He says He will do. This is great news for the world and specifically for us as His people, because we get to reap so many gifts due to God’s faithfulness to Himself. In His faithfulness to Himself, He is faithful to us. He is faithful to complete the good work He started in us. He is faithful to never leave us. He is faithful to lead us and guide us. He is so faithful! “We Trust You” is very much rooted in the concept of God’s unending faithfulness, which is why we wanted to repeat the words, “We trust You” in every chorus. We can trust Him because He has never been unfaithful, and He never will be. Even though He is always faithful, we don’t always live like He’s faithful, which is why we need Him to be our vision. We need to see life through His eyes. We can look in the scriptures and read endless stories about God’s faithfulness to Himself and to His people. Just like we have studied in the Move series, God’s faithfulness is all over the book of Jonah. While we see God’s faithfulness in many places throughout the scriptures, it is most poignantly displayed through the events of Christ’s life, death and resurrection. Without those events, the prayers of this song would be impossible to pray. If it weren’t for God’s faithfulness, this song would be completely false and useless. Every word of celebration, confession, and surrender inside of “We Trust You” finds its affirmation in Jesus.
Since God is 100% faithful, we can read Ephesians 3:21 as a promise. Take a minute and read this verse, but think of it as a promise from the Lord. Ephesians 3:21says, “to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” We can rejoice in the fact that He has set us apart as His kids. He did this so we would show the world His glory, just like Ephesians 3:21 says. In the verse preceding, Paul writes about how God is able to do abundantly more than we could ever ask or dream, but it all hinges upon His working in us, through the Holy Spirit, which is once again a very clear picture of God’s faithfulness. He is so faithful, even to the point of giving us a piece of Himself to help us live and persevere through life. The words of “We Trust You” are impossible apart from God’s working in us. He really is persistent to change us, and He changes us in order to reveal His glory to the world. We will live with open arms to show the world His glory, and we can trust that God will work in us and through us to accomplish all that He has planned. When we give Him open hearts, He enables us to love with all we are. Since He is faithful to His word, we trust that He will glorify Himself through Lifepoint, through Christ for all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Please take some time to read and pray through Ephesians 3:21; then take a minute to celebrate God’s faithfulness to will and to work by listening to “We Trust You.”
