I heard this song last week during the Hope Filipino Fullness 21st Anniversary. When the worship leader was singing this song, I told my Lifegroup leader that the lyrics of the song were very powerful.
The song brought me to the time of Joshua. I imagined Joshua just after crossing the Jordan River and experiencing God’s power and when he reached Jericho, he was faced probably the biggest wall in his life has ever seen.
Then God said to Joshua:
“You shall march around the city, all the men of war going around the city once. Thus shall you do for six days. Seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark. On the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. And when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, when you hear the sound of the trumpet, then all the people shall shout with a great shout, and the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people shall go up, everyone straight before him.” So Joshua the son of Nun called the priests and said to them, “Take up the ark of the covenant and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of the Lord.”” – Joshua 6:3-6 ESV
Joshua didn’t question God – he didn’t even doubt God’s assurance of delivering Jericho in his hands. Joshua’s obedience to God is His worship and surely, on the seventh day, he saw the mighty walls of Jericho crumbling down.
Here’s the link of Jason David’s testimony and story behind the song These Walls.
As you listen to the song, just like the writer of this song who chose to fix his eyes on Jesus and worship him despite the wall that is in front of him, I pray that you lift your walls to our Almighty God. As you worship the Lord with this song, whatever wall that is in front of you right now – a wall that covers breakthroughs, promotions, healing, transformation, keep your eyes to Jesus for nothing is impossible to Him and watch those walls start crumbling.
