God Undefeatable January 24, 2012

At our church, Austin Stone, we’ve been singing a song that I absolutely love.  It’s called God Undefeatable.  

The KidStuff ministry at our church must also be playing it regularly for the grade school class because Miss 6 has been requesting to hear it a lot.  I mean, a lot.  I hear her singing it sometimes to herself, and when we get in the car she asks to hear the “oooo” song (There are some “O’s” that are sung throughout).  So cute!

What you need to know, is that this is a HUGE blessing of God.  Miss 6, for those of you who don’t know, is our 6 year old foster daughter.  She has been having an exceptionally tough time lately.  She’s very emotional, hates saying goodbye to people, misses her biological family, and is just all around sad.  She’s been struggling with trying to figure out her place in our family, wondering why she’s not with her mom, wondering if we will miss her if she leaves, and, I think, feeling guilty about loving us, wanting to be with us, but still loving her mom as well.  This kid has been through quite a lot and continues to be strung along in a broken, worldly system.  The amazing thing about her wanting to hear this song, is that it shows that God is working on her heart!  He’s teaching her that no matter what troubles she has now or will have later, He has conquered them.  He has come, He has defeated death, He is reigning, and is the Victor over our pain here on this earth.  He is teaching her that He loves her with matchless, bountiful, plentiful love.  I truly believe that she hears these lyrics and is comforted deep down in her soul.  I believe that Jesus is fighting for her, pursuing her, and she is running to the One who can comfort like none of us can.

Here are the lyrics:

Behold the King who conquered
And overcame our sin
Behold our glorious Victor
Whose mercy knows no end

He is true, He is right
Death is broken, He is alive

God undefeatable, kingdom unshakeable
In majesty and power You reign
Love undeniable, matchless and bountiful
To waken us to life You came
You came

And now our way is certain
Our souls in You secure
Through every pain and struggle
Your victory endures

For You are true, You are right
Death is broken, You are alive

God undefeatable, kingdom unshakeable
In majesty and power You reign
Love undeniable, matchless and bountiful
To waken us to life You came
You came

The love of God is greater than we dare to hope or dream
The hold of God is stronger than we dare to hope or dream

God undefeatable, kingdom unshakeable
In majesty and power You reign
Love undeniable, matchless and bountiful
To waken us to life You came
You came
