THE WORSHIP REFLECTIVE WITH SELENA SCHULZ, #91 - Lakewood Music

Over the last two decades, the worship band Lakewood Worship has accompanied Lakewood Church as it establishes itself as the largest church in the state of Texas. The band hopes their music will inspire others into unique worship moments like those encapsulated in their albums. The group of musicians is based in Houston, Texas with music that is relatable around the world. 

Their most recent project, Shout, is power packed with featured worship leaders and incredible messages. I dive into two songs from the album. 

Can I Get An Amen?

"We're standing on the word of God
We know the best is yet to come
Miracles break out when we agree."


This song is based on Scripture and the affirmation of the Word by the Church. There is a tangible sense of community when Christ-followers put aside their visible differences to agree on biblical truth, and I felt that in this song. 

God has a plethora of promises that He lavishes on us, His children. And there is little to do but rejoice when He does so. Singing His glory is an instinct to His blessings, and this song covered those 10 times over in the few minutes it spanned. However, I hope it leaves a lasting impact on you so that you can go throughout your day feeling more in love with our Heavenly Father, even if just a little bit. As the lyrics proclaim, things change when we declare the name of Jesus. Try it today; God works miracles and, although He doesn't need our belief, He desires it. Why not give that trust to the one who saved our soul? "Can I get an Amen?"

 

Yahweh

There's one God that I know
Who can raise the dead and save my soul
You can do the impossible
Oh, I will forever lift the name


This anthem features Lakewood Music and gospel musician Travis Greene. The collaboration was beautiful, with the voices blending seamlessly to "forever lift the name, Yahweh."

The simple declaration of faith embodied in this song matches the energy I was fixated on throughout the music video. What if we let ourselves go for a few minutes to sing of the freedom in His love? These worship leaders have reached that state of being, and I aspire to it because I know exactly how sweet His presence is. The encounters I've had with God have left me forever changed. And, even then, I know there's more to come. Why run when we can dance? There's nothing to fear with God, and I'm grateful for the peace His presence provides; "there's no God greater."
