One of my highlights recently was being directed to this link of Darlene Zschech leading worship at Bethel Church.
If you know Darlene’s story then you know she is a woman who has overcome some serious setbacks during her life. Rather than being destroyed, she has learnt the path to resilience – recognising that… ‘It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You!’
If you’re in a battle – take heart – the name of Jesus is your battle cry. You are surrounded by the goodness and favour of the one who never takes His eye off you – ‘Indeed! He who watches over (you) never slumbers or sleeps!’ (Psalm 121:4).
Draw aside, turn up the volume and let the God of heaven encourage you – He’s got you surrounded!!
And there’s also a brief but beautiful detour into Darlene’s song ‘Shout to the Lord’!
