Your Love Never Fails

A few weeks ago I posted a blog about the song “Give Me Faith” by Elevation Worship that God was using to minister to my heart at the time. You can read that post here. God has been using another song to minister to my heart right now and figured I would post a video of it and maybe God will use it to minister to you as well. The song that God has been using is called “Your Love Never Fails” by Jesus Culture. I first heard the song at Skyview Ranch because it would play on the speakers outside as campers came on Monday mornings, but recently heard it again as the worship band did it here at COD for a youth event called Ignition. You can read all about that awesome event here. This song is so awesome because I think it expresses the way many of us feel as Christians sometimes. We make mistakes, we sin, we rebel against God’s Word, but we must remember that even in those times God loves us! That truth is expressed throughout the song and every time I hear this song Romans 8:38-39 comes to mind. Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” The bridge of the song is powerful as it reminds us of the promise given to us in Romans 8:28 where it says, And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Watch the video below where Jesus Culture does this song live and allow God to minister to you through it.

Here are the lyrics:

Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me everyday
Your love never fails

You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There maybe pain in the night but joy comes in the morning

And when the oceans rage
I don’t have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails

Verse 2:
The wind is strong and the water’s deep
But I’m not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I’d reach the other side
But Your love never fails

You make all things work together for my good

Give Me Faith

Yesterday I was browsing around on iTunes and purchased the song “Give Me Faith” by Elevation Worship. If you don’t know about Elevation Worship they are the music side of Steven Furticks Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC. I posted a blog by Steven Furtick a few days ago. You can go read it here. The moment I heard this song I loved it, but the more I have listened to it I no longer love it, but feel it. Music has a way of expressing our feelings and there are times in our life where we may not be able to put into words what we are feeling. I love knowing that we have the Holy Spirit during these times to help us pray and cry out to God (Romans 8:26), but I’m also glad God gave us the gift of music to express our feelings. I get chills every time I listen to this song because I feel it in my bones. I’m thankful God lead me to this song and how He is ministering to my soul through it. Below is a video of Elevation Worship doing this song. For the first few minutes they sing just the chorus so don’t stop the video watch the whole things and allow God to minister to you through this amazing song. You can find more videos of their worship music on their YouTube channel.

Here are the lyrics:

All I am
I surrender

Chorus 1
Give me faith to trust what You say
That You’re good and Your love is great
I’m broken inside I give You my life

Verse 1
I need You to soften my heart
To break me apart
I need You to open my eyes
To see that You’re shaping my life

Verse 2
I need You to soften my heart
To break me apart
I need You pierce through the dark
And cleanse every part of me

Misc 2
I may be weak
But Your Spirit’s strong in me
My flesh may fail
My God You never will (REPEAT)

Here is the story behind the song:
