Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)
This weekend we are introducing a new song called Oceans and it is one of my favorite worship songs right now. The first time I heard this song I knew it was one that we should do as a church family. The lyrics talk a lot about faith and how we should put our trust in Him even though it may be difficult.
The theme is taken directly from Matthew 14 where Jesus walks out to the disciples on the water. Once the disciples realize that it is Jesus that is walking on the water Peter asks to come meet Him. I love what it says in the Message, "Jumping out of the boat, Peter walked on water to Jesus. But when he looked down at the waves churning beneath his feet, he lost his nerve and started to sink. He cried, 'Master, save me!' Jesus didn't hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, 'Faint-heart, what got into you?'" (Matthew 14:30-31)
It makes me think of how often I get distracted by waves around me and the things that don't really matter in life. Jesus is right in front of me and inviting me to step out in faith to Him. I'll leave you with the lyrics to the bridge:
"Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior"
