New Worship Song, “The God Who Fights For Me,” Brought Me To Tears!

Need a dose of encouragement today? Listen to this song!

We’re reminded throughout scripture of what it means to be children of God. Our sins are forgiven and our future is secure, but what about right here, right now? Where is God when we’re facing financial hardships, deaths in the family, a broken marriage, depression, anxiety, and any number of other struggles?

A verse often quoted while facing hardships is Matthew 28:20, “I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Another is Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” These verses are true and comforting, but they aren’t a complete picture of who God is during trials and tribulations.

Yes, God is always with us. Yes, He longs for us to rest in His presence. But that doesn’t mean God is passive. Quite the opposite, in fact. Deuteronomy 20:4 tells us, “For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” Again in Deuteronomy 3:22, scripture says, “Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you.”

Where is God in our times of trouble? He’s calling us to rest in Him as well as trust that He’s the one fighting our battles. All we have to do is lay our burdens at the cross and claim God’s promise to fight for us and for our good.

This new song from Zoe Worship is a beautiful reminder of these truths! Zoe Worship is the band from Zoe Church in LA. Check out their online services and discover more of their music here!

Verse:

When the shadow’s all around me

When the hardest battles coming at me

Rushing in like a flood In the darkness,

When my heart is at its farthest, in the hardest moments

I’ve Imagined Still I know who You are

Chorus:

You are the God of the valleys

You’re the God in the storm

You are strong in my battles

Yes I know who you are

You’re my anchor of hope In the rage of the sea

You are the God Who fights for me

Verse 2:

In the shadow of your presence I can feel your power working in this

Oh Lord you’re my peace

It’s your glory in my story

And I know Your love is working for me Lord

I know you are good

Chorus:

You are the God of the valleys

You are God in the storm

You are strong in my battles

Yes I know who you are

You’re my anchor of hope

In the rage of the sea

You are the God Who fights for me

Bridge:

There’s no giant too strong That my God can’t slay

There’s no mountain too big

He can’t throw to the waves

There’s no weapon that’s formed

That my God can’t break

You’re the God who fights for me
