Jericho

I woke up with this song in my head yesterday morning. It was on repeat in my head most of the day. Every word of this song was speaking to me.

I have a build up of lies that God is tearing down. He’s using the truth to get straight through all the stuff to the the heart of the issues. The walls are coming down. It has been and still is quite a process, but God will complete the work He started. I know I’m changing physically, spiritually, & emotionally. God is doing amazing things.

I hope this song speaks to you, as it did for me. I could go into every line of the lyrics, but I feel like I would just be rewording them, so I have included the lyrics below. The link to the song/video is after the lyrics.

Lyrics:

I was stacking up the years I spent trading punches with the enemy
Built myself a double thick stone
Tower of lies, higher than the eye could see
Trapped in my flesh and bone
Crying out to You Lord, I’m desperate
Love, come rattle this cage and set me free

All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down
All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down
Oh Lord, my prison turns to ruin
When Your love moves in
All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down, come down

Truth was crashing through the pride and the blame
Cutting straight into the heart of me
Long before I ever called your name
You were fighting for my victory
Carved in Your flesh and bone
Are wounds that have said my souls forgiven
Oh now, I can feel the darkness trembling

All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down
All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down
Oh Lord, my prison turns to ruin
When Your love moves in
All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down, come down

Rebuild me from the ground up
All I wanna see is You
Terrify the lies with truth

All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down
All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down
Oh Lord, my prison turns to ruin
When Your love moves in
All of my fears like Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down, come down

All of my fears gotta come down
Jericho walls
Gotta come down, come down, come down
