03. Voice of Truth

Casting Crowns
by Casting Crowns



 

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes to climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again, 'boy, you'll never win!'
'You'll never win!'

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says, 'Do not be afraid!'
And the voice of truth says, 'This is for my glory'
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again, 'Boy, you'll never win!'
'You'll never win!'

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves don't seem so high
From on top of them lookin' down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Behind the Song:
“The beginnings of this song came from the first song I ever wrote, called ‘Fear.’ Growing up with dyslexia and some learning challenges, Satan used that in my life to keep me very small and very afraid to ever try anything, to ever leap out of my boat and do something that I knew I couldn’t do. I’m learning that God often puts us in the position to do the unthinkable knowing we’re not able to. God’s not intimidated by what intimidates me and if I can just understand that all He wants me to do is obey Him and that the things that scare me, don’t scare Him. This was the first song Steven [Curtis Chapman] and I wrote on together, and he pulled out that chorus of ‘voice of truth.’” – Mark Hall (Casting Crowns)2 Corinthians 12:7-10/ 1 Corinthians 1:20-2:4
