I remember the 1st time I heard this song. I was driving home from work headed to finish up my studying on this new course I purchased before I had to pick my daughter up from school. It was so much new information in the course, I remember feeling like I was never gonna finish. Then I heard the beat drop on the radio, but when the lyrics started rolling. I started hollering! YEEEESSS!
God your so mighty and strong // you made us mighty and strong // God your so mighty and strong // you made us mighty and strong // Now I’m just happy to be here // It could’ve been another way // I could’ve been dead and gone // Like them old church mothers use to say // Wanted to live a lot longer // These trials have made me stronger // But by the grace of god // I got a 2nd chance, cause cancer was conquered // Why in hell are you praying? // Call up the florist start funeral planning // This is what I was thinking // After I heard what the doctor was saying // Then the world started praying // And I started believing // Now the cancer is gone
Cause you prayed // And I prayed and God came and..
This was the 4th course I’d purchased independent of a school curriculum, and although I’d learned in-valuable lessons in each course none of them yielded the financial winfalls I’d expected and my family was no longer cheering me on? How many of you have ever started down the road to achieve the calling God has on your life and found yourself walking the path alone? There is a season for everything. This song shot a surge of energy through my body and fanned my destiny flame. The destiny flame is a fire burning on the inside thats ignited the moment you do the “thing” God is calling you to.
Prove the doubters wrong! // God your so mighty and strong // you made us mighty and strong // Everyday we live // Prove the doubters wrong! // God your so mighty and strong // you made us mighty and strong // Everyday we live
When you take that 1st step out on faith and trust God’s plan for your life theres all types of emotions, and passions. You tell everybody your dream “just like Joseph,” and you can end up in some tight spots “just like Joseph.” By the time you make it to step 97 out of who knows how many steps, the destiny flame can get dim. It is his staff “all the people employed by God ” that comfort, fan, and sometimes reignite that flame, and he has commanded that we be strong. So with his command I have learned to put expectations on him, and Deon captured the essence of my faith and put it on a beat!
Hey my friend you’ve been grinding // You’ve been putting your time in // You been hit by your problems // But for some reason you keep on stomping // You keep on stomping // Just keep on stomping // Man your marching // Thats why they call you young Martin // Something like a movement // Just keep persuing // When they say you cant do it // Go on and prove it // And they still probably wont // Show you any love // It dont matter cause God is the plug // It dont matter cause God is the plug
I spent days googling different phrases to add this song to my playlist. I kept telling my daughter, “I heard a new song on the radio and your gonna love it.” (She’s a real big Ty Tribbet fan, but that’s another post.) I’ll save you the details of my search, but after a week of failed attempts, I downloaded Shazam. It’s a music app that Identifys songs by sound. So the next time “Prove” came on, I got it! And I got every other song off the radio that made my drives pleasant.
Prove the doubters wrong! // God your so mighty and strong // you made us mighty and strong // Everyday we live // (Repeat) // God is on your side // (if you trust in him) // Nothing can stop you // Cause you hold the light // Please know that // God is on your side // (if you trust in him) // Nothing can stop you // Cause you hold the light // Prove the doubters wrong! // God your so mighty and strong // you made us mighty and strong // Everyday we live // (Repeat) // (Repeat) // (Repeat) // (So Deon when daddy was sick what did he tell you? Son responds, “Kippings dont quit.” say it again “Kippings dont quit.” Are you a quitter? “No” So for people who are sick and have goals and dreams what do you tell them? “Dont give up and Dont quit!” Thats what we wanna tell the world? “Yes” lets tell’em again. “Dont give up and Dont quit!” )
If only you were there when my daughters eyes lit up at the sound of Deon talking to his son, when she finally heard the song. As a parent you want to instill strong spiritual principals in your child that will make them walk in confidence wherever they go in life. I am always prompting my daughter to quote Joshua 1:9 because “God didn’t make no chumps” as a child of God when God calls us to our purpose, it’s normally completely opposite of what anyone around us/you is/are doing. They wont understand the changes happening right before their eyes, even though our/your circumstances don’t appear to be changing. This song lightened the tone of my intentional request of my daughter. HOW DO WE WALK?
I wanna run, I wanna Scream // Tell everybody that they gotta believe // If gotta goal or a dream
// There is nothing that you cant achieve // So I pray you believe it // That you never stop dreaming // You will be blessed // You will be strong // And with Gods power // I know you will
// Prove the doubters wrong // Prove them wrong // Prove them wrong // Every doubter // Prove them wrong // With his power // Prove them wrong
BY FAITH. We call those things which are not as though they were. You will be blessed, you will be strong, and with God’s power I know you will prove the doubters wrong. He said it all, with that line. Until, the next song, stay safe and sing a good song.
