I recently stumbled across a song by Basshunter while listening to one of my Pandora channels. The lyrics go as follows:
“I will never be afraid again, I will keep on fighting ’till the end. I can walk on water, I can fly. I will keep on fighting ’till I die.”
I had never heard the song before and it struck a chord in my heart. My granddaughters now also love this song, and while we adjust the lyrics slightly to include never dying, there is something that touches me. The song is a declaration that I live without fear and exceed the constraints I have learned to live under.
Matthew 19:26 says, “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'” We have gotten used to a world full of limitations–bodies that grow frail and die, natural laws that bind us, and matter that limits us. We were never designed to be trapped on earth but to steward it. This earth that was once our domain has become our prison–but Jesus died to set us free.
Where once we were bound by the constraints of matter, Jesus showed us another way by taking authority over wind and waves and multiplying loaves and fish. Where once we were bound by natural laws, Jesus showed us another way by teleporting, levitating, and walking on water. Where once we were fated to grow old and die, Jesus showed us another way through resurrection, and where he said ” . . . whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11:26).
I want to remind you today that you not afraid–you are an overcomer. You are a fighter. You can and will keep going–don’t stop until you reach your goals and achieve your dreams! God has sent angels to watch over you, and given them orders to destroy every barrier in your path. Your weapons are powerful to tear down every stronghold the enemy places in your path. You will never be afraid again, never bow down again, and never die. You are completely filled with Holy Spirit who gives you limitless power to make this earth like heaven. I encourage you to let this song fill your soul with hope as you go forth and change the world!
