The Russian proverb “doveryai no proveryai” is translated “trust but verify” in English. This is how we should approach our trusted preachers, teachers, and even Christian music. However, when you can verify that the lyrics you are singing through your favorite songs come from Scripture, you can now use the song to help you meditate on truths that God has gifted us. This week we will use Darlene Zschech’s version of “In Jesus’ Name” to inspire us to discover Scriptural proof of the lyrics, making this song a powerful tool to help us hide God’s Word in our hearts.
With a special resource I’ve created and little extra effort, you will see tremendous results this week.
On this episode I discuss:
- The need for a few good “devil trampling” songs in our playlists
- The B.I.T.E.s – Bible Interaction Tool Exercises – for the week include:
- Write out Scripture
- Read the context
- Breaking down the song phrase by phrase – use this resource to help
- God is fighting for us – Exodus 14:14
- God is on our side – Psalm 108:13
- He has overcome – John 16:33
- We will not be shaken – Psalm 16:8
- We will not be moved – Psalm 62:2
- Jesus is here – Matthew 18:20
- Carrying our burdens – Psalm 55:22
- Covering our shame – Genesis 3:7, 21
- I will live, I will not die – Psalm 118:17 and John 3:16
