For a brief overview of the soaking songs:
The soaking songs from TriUne Echo are about roughly 10 min long and used for devotional/ministry times.
For a bit of background to the new soaking song titled ‘Deliverance’
I have experienced deliverance in my own personal life more than 10 yrs back, and after often encountering people who seem to think that Satan has more power than he really does, the Lord reminded me of His greatness and supremacy. As a Christian, through Jesus Christ we have authority over Satan as God’s Word says in
1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. There are many more Scriptures that confirm the promises of this beautiful thing that can has given and entrusted to us.
Unfortunately many Christians give Satan more thought, than God honour, and tend to be paranoid, watching their backs, thinking they are always under attack, so much so, that there is more emphasis put on spiritual warfare than emphasis placed on worshiping and honouring and celebrating God with a joyous and peaceful lifestyle. Do not get me wrong, I am not against spiritual warfare, but many Christians have a great imbalance in their lives when it comes to this.
The Kingdom of God is righteous, joy and peace in the Holy Spirit. If a Christian is not experiencing righteous but sin and oppression, not experiencing joy, but fear and paranoia, not experiencing peace, but continual striving, a battling to hear God’s voice and over emphasis of good works in compensation to this, the sad reality is the one in this sort of situation is not experiencing the Kingdom of God in their lives.
I battled with various eating disorders, from one extreme to the next, many years ago and after many people praying for me, counselling, reading numerous books, praying like crazy to be free of it, nothing worked. No man could help me, and no man’s advice seemed to change my life. It was a huge stronghold, so bad that it felt like my own will had been taken over by something. After pursuing God for months on end, I eventually said, God if you don’t deliver me from this, I would rather die. After many failing attempts to fast, I finally gave up and fasted until He delivered me. It only took 11 days of a purely water fast, and he miraculously delivered me in totality. This is when I realised, God you are my rescuer, no man can do what you can.
In the song I have written ‘You hold the keys of life, unlock my heart to respond, you are my truth, Jesus.
I thought I would never get free of this thing or get deliverance after battling this for 2 yrs, nothing, absolutely nothing helping. But God has all authority over all principalities and powers of darkness, and when coming under submission to His Rule and reign, one will find deliverance. It is a case a yielding one’s will to His. He is faithful to show you how to do this when you wait on Him and never let Him go.
Jas 4:6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Jas 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
As children of God we are Heirs and co-Heirs with Christ and He has given us all authority over powers of darkness because of our great inheritance.
When we are in right standing with God and understand our authority it can be effectively exercised.
John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
This Scriptures does not warn us to fear what the devil might do, but tells us of his character. With that it contrasts the character of God to in a sense say BUT, take note… I have come that they may have life…
In the song is says: Lord take control of my life, every part, there’s no place, you cannot reach lead me to freedom, it’s your gift. And that is the mystery and beauty of God’s grace. His perfect and uncompromising will is to give every man life and life abundantly - to take us into freedom. It is not His will or nature to punish cruelly, cause anguish with destruction and neglect. That is the nature and character of Satan. Many people do not realise how perfectly loving, merciful and gracious our Father is, and so they live in fear rather than freedom. We are victorious in God, not victims to Satan! Satan can only do what you give him permission for.
1Jn 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
I hope this song can speak to some people who battle with understanding the love and power of God, and I hope there can be a greater realisation for some that God wants you to walk in absolute freedom. God is always in a good mood, and is always standing with arms wide open, waiting for you. If you have a stronghold in your life or feel entrapped in any way, start worshiping God and surrendering. Stop focusing on what you think you are not and let God minister to you.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
1 Corinthians 15: 57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory making us conquerors through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Lyrics for Deliverance:
I’ve met the Deliver… God, hailed the Awesome, the Mighty
I’ve touched the Healer, God hailed the Merciful, God of love
I walk with the Saviour, God my life and salvation, Je-sus
God, my rescuer… No man can do what you can
You hold the keys of life. Unlock my heart to respond, You are my truth , Jesus
Lord take control of my life, every part
There’s no place You cannot reach
Lead me to freedom, it’s Your gift
Come Holy Spirit
You have no battle wounds
Nothing can withstand Your power
Your mastery over my life is more powerful than the darkness
You’re my Redeemer, my Restorer of hope
All hail the King, the King of Kings, Jesus Christ the Lord
You hold all authority
Fear is gone
You’ve conquered sin and death
How I love You
God of grace, You’re my light
The darkness flees at Your name
I’m free to receive
I wait at Your feet, Jesus
I wait at Your feet, I wait at Your feet.
