Like a Splash of Cold Water

I
have called you friends.

John 15:15 (NLT)

Like an icy cold splash of water in my face, the
lyrics awaken me to the stunning truth.


The One who reigns forever,

He is a friend of mine.

– Chris Tomlin

It’s beyond comprehension.

The God who created mountains and oceans and galaxies
also thought the world needed one of me. The glorious, perfect, everlasting God
listens to my prayers and walks beside me. The One who provided nourishment and
protection for the Jews as He led them toward the Promised Land guides my steps
too. The God who clothed Himself with skin so that it could be bruised and
bloodied knows my name.

He calls me friend.

The One who reigns forever is a friend of mine. (tweet this)

My icy splash was a worship song by Chris Tomlin
called Whom Shall I Fear.
It’s no coincidence that God jolted my awareness of His love with this song – I
have concert tickets to worship with Chris Tomlin in October.

Whom
Shall I Fear [God of Angel Armies]

Chris Tomlin

You hear me when I call

You are my morning song

Though the darkness fills the night

It cannot hide the light

Whom shall I fear?

You crush the enemy

Underneath my feet

You are my sword and shield

Though troubles linger still

Whom shall I fear?

[chorus] I know who goes before me

I know who stands behind

The God of angel armies

Is always by my side

The One who reigns forever

He is a friend of mine

My strength is in your name

For you alone can save

You will deliver me

Yours is the victory

Whom shall I fear?

[chorus]

And nothing formed against me shall stand

You hold the whole world in your hands

I’m holding on to your promises

You are faithful

You are faithful

[chorus]
