Songs That Got Me Through The Year | 2018 – Praise And Worship.

Yeshua has seen me through another year. 2018 was the year where praise and worship morphed into the prophetic. So many gospel musicians released really prophetic sounds this year. And I saw Jesus move mighty in many areas of my life.

Every year, Jesus lets me know that there is more to him, his glory and his kingdom. He keeps revealing himself to me in the most glorious and ingenious ways. This year was no different.

In 2017, Jesus showed me the power of praise and worship to open new doors and I shared that list of earth shattering songs in this list.

Songs That Got Me Through The Year | 2017 – Praise And Worship

In 2018, Jesus moved far and wide and there were so many new songs released by contemporary gospel musicians. Christian music has certainly evolved, grown and developed in such amazing ways.

So, if I’m to look through my playlist and select some songs that really touched me, caused miracles and generally changed my life, this would look something like it.

PS: The songs are randomly listed with no grading from a long list of totally awesome songs.

Prophesy Your Promise – Bryan & Katie Torwalt

I saw the prophetic manifest in the most marvelous ways this year. Bryan and Katie of Jesus Culture just echo those sentiments in this powerfully moving and humbling song. In fact all the songs in the album are worth listening to. The album is titled Praise Before My Breakthrough. 

There Is A Name – Sean Feucht

There is really no name above the name of Jesus. At the name of Jesus, giants fall. People are changed. Nations are healed. When we call on the name of Jesus transformations occur. Yes! Jesus is the king of my life. He is the center and eternally enthroned on my heart. Sean Feucht, thank you for the miraculous album titled “Wild” in which this awesome song is found.

Zion Aaron Shust

There are times I felt alone. Times I felt misunderstood. Times I felt like a wanderer who would never find home. Aaron’s song strongly reminded me of the eternal covenant I have in Jesus. His song reminded that God who started a new work will see me to the end. That I’m not really alone. Jesus has me always and he will never leave me or forsake me.

While I Wait – Lincoln Brewster

Waiting can be one of the hardest things ever. I found that trusting God while waiting made it so much easier. I was reminded that Jesus is the God of impossibilities and he has me always. I was reminded to live by Faith and that miracles take time sometimes so I should hold on. Jesus is not done, so I won’t be done waiting. He will come through, of that I’m sure. Lincoln Brewster’s song off his superb album titled, “God Of The Impossible” is worth it.

Shelter – Vertical Worship ft. One Sonic Society

Oh my! There were moments during the year that I felt the earth under me literally shaking and going down under me. There were times I felt vulnerable and exposed. There were times I needed a place to hide from enemies, the world, myself and everything. There were times I wanted to escape. When the world felt too dangerous to live in. Vertical Worship‘s calming song, “Shelter” spoke to me so many times.

Stand In Your Love – Josh Baldwin

There were so many times I was afraid. Times when my fear almost paralyzed into inaction. Times when I didn’t want to let go of my past. When shame, guilt and negativity gripped at my insides. During those times, Josh Baldwin reminded me that there is a power that is greater than fear, greater than darkness, greater than death. The power of Jesus is above everything and anything. Jesus thank you for being more powerful than all my circumstances.

Cheta – Ada

Oh how easy it is forget that Jesus never fails especially when the storms of life hit. When uncertainty knocks at our door, it is easy to forget that we serve a God who never changes. A God who is the same yesterday, today and forever. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The creator of the heavens and earth. I pray that when the storms hit, you will be encouraged and know that Jesus is never late. He never fails and he is there for you. Ada, thank you for reminding me of these truths through the year.

In The Hands Of The Potter – Casting Crowns

2018, was a year where Jesus was really molding and shaping me. He chiseled, he cut, he patted, he broke, he restored, he shook, he hit, he renewed, he burnt and out of the process, I came out a better vessel. I’m certainly on the right path to perfection. Jesus, thank you for taking my unworthy parts into your hands and shaping me. Jesus thank you for using me as vessel, please keep using me. Keep molding this piece of clay and dust. I’m yours for eternity my King and master.

Nobody Loves Me Like You – Chris Tomlin

Jesus is love personified. Jesus is the definition of love. Jesus is where love starts and ends. Without Jesus there is no true love. Jesus is the center of love. Jesus helps us to love others better as we copy his example. Jesus please help me to love others the way you love me.

When I Am Weak – The Response Band

Most times, I feel really weak and defeated. Most times I find myself at the masters feet as the world pushes at me. The place I feel strongest is in the bosom of Papa, Jesus. When I can’t go on, Jesus carries me. Truth is that Jesus is always carrying me otherwise I wouldn’t manage to do life. I can’t do life without Jesus. The Response Band, thank you so much for telling me over and over that my Father, Jesus has me always. Your song got me through so much.

I fear not for the Lord is with me
He upholds his righteous hand
From his word springs life
It’s drawing home the broken
He redeems the fallen man
Your grace is all I need
You are strong when I am weak
I will boast in the power of Christ in Me
You are strong when I am weak
God our love transforms the low to mighty
He gives power when we are Faint
Though we become dismayed in trials and persecution
Only one renews our strength
Your grace is all I need
You are strong when I am weak
I will boast in the power of Christ in Me
You are strong when I am weak
We’ll soar on wings like eagles
We’ll walk and not be faint
We’ll run and grow weary
Our Father is our strength
Your grace is all I need
You are strong when I am weak
I will boast in the power of Christ in Me
You are strong when I am weak
I will boast in the power of Christ in Me
You are strong when I am weak

The Response Band

Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Give to the Lord glory and strength.
29 Give to the Lord the glory due His name;
Bring an offering, and come before Him.
Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!

1 Chronicles 16:28-29
