One of my favorite songs right now is "Do it Again" by Elevation Worship. It speaks to the heart of many who are facing trials, hardship, and seemingly impossible situations ("mountains"). This is what Jesus was talking about in the often-quoted scripture(s) about "moving mountains" and "casting them into the sea".
“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”Matthew 17:20 NLT
Jesus is speaking about putting your faith in Him to overcome these impossible situations. The truth is, there are obstacles we cannot move in our own strength. There are situations that are impossible for us without divine help. But, even the tiniest ounce of faith (in Jesus) can move mountains. Jesus says “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible” (Matthew 19:26 NLT).
"Do it Again" is a faith-building song, for me.
Even in the seasons of life where things are generally going well; my relationships, my family, my health, etc. are all in a good place, there can be moments of discouragement or discontentment. It is songs like these that remind me to keep going. Hold on to the shield of faith. Because nothing is impossible when we put our trust in Jesus.
I hope this song encourages you as it has encouraged me. Here is my acoustic cover of Do it Again. Enjoy.
