Hanging On Every Word That You Say

A couple of days ago I put some praise and worship on from youtube, and the clips kept changing and I just let them play.

But then this song came on.  I didn’t have time to listen to the words at the time, but I felt the presence of God come into my kitchen as I just let it play over and over again.  Finally I have taken the time to listen and even read these lyrics.  They are so powerful, I want to highlight them today for you.  Here’s the clip, followed by the lyrics.  Read them as you listen if you can.

Say the Word – Hillsong UNITED

Say the word and there is light
Say the word and dead bones rise
Every start and end hangs on Your voice
For Your word never returns void

Written in a billion skies
Speaking to this heart of mine
All that I am with all creation
Hanging on every word that You’ve spoken
And it will not be shaken
Clinging for life to all Your promise
Hanging on every word that You say

It will remain
And my soul will hang on every word You say

Word made flesh You wrote in grace
Promise kept through cross and grave
Over words of stone You spelled out love
And when You say it is done
It is done

Written in a billion skies
Speaking to this heart of mine
All that I am with all creation
Hanging on every word that You’ve spoken
And it will not be shaken
Clinging for life to all Your promise
Hanging on every word that You say

It will remain
And my soul will hang on every word You say
Cause I know Your word will never ever fail
And my soul will hang on every word You say

I also want to share with you the story behind this song, I just came across it as I was putting this post together for you.  I love seeing the emotion in this video, the passion.  It’s powerful.

Today if you’re reading this, God wants you to know something: He has so much He wants to tell you.  Will you ask Him what it is today?  Will you search through the love letter of the Bible to find out the treasures He has there for you?  Will you seek His face, talk to Him, spend time with Him?

Even if your day is busy, which many of us can say that life is so busy, find a few minutes to shut yourself away with Him for even a few minutes.  You’ll be amazed how the course of your day will change in those few moments, electrified by the power of every word He says.
