Happy Friday! Normally, on this day, I would do a Friday Roundup, but alas, I felt like doing another music-related post today. This one comes from MercyMe, and chances are that you have already heard it. Here’s “Greater”:

Alright, this is definitely a song to get you rolling for the weekend. Maybe do a little ad-lib dance on the floor, or… Never mind, take a look at the first verse in this song:

Bring your tired
Bring your shame
Bring your guilt
Bring your pain
Don’t you know that’s not your name
You will always be much more to me

Everyday I wrestle with the voices
That keep telling me I’m not right
But that’s alright

The story behind this song is one to be remarked upon. If you haven’t heard it before, Bart Millard has a son with a slight stuttering problem and he was once made fun of for it. Talking with his son later, Mr. Millard explained to him that the devil may be trying to take shots at him and trying to break him down because Satan knows that there is something special in his son. His son then broke into the chorus of this song, which goes:

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

God is greater than anyone else. It sounds cheesy, but yet it’s so true. God calls you redeemed. Even though others might beat you down and try to crack you, you have God inside you, and nothing can combat that. Nothing.

Remember this when you go into the weekend: Greater is the One living inside of you, than he who is living in the world. God is greater.

In Christ,

Howdy! I’m Collin, 16 years old, and a homeschooled junior. I play the piano, ukulele, and many sports. I’m far from perfect, and that’s why I love to share (through this blog) what God is showing me in His word. Although I have many favorite Bible verses, if I had to choose one it would be Romans 12:12, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” I believe that prayer is the most powerful tool we are given as Christians and it should not be taken for granted. Toodles!
