Psalm 121, a song of Ascents is sung by the Israelites during their journey to Jerusalem which is situated on a high hill. Pointing upwards, Hills are a great reminder that as believers, we should always look up to the Most High when life’s journey becomes difficult.
Dear friend, where are you in your life’s journey?
Are you in a season of disappointment?
Are you exhausted?
Are you facing mountains that are too big?
If yes, who are you turning to, for help?
Family? Friends? Doctors? or someone who is in power?
While there is nothing wrong in seeking help from others, it is my humble prayer that this song serves as a reminder to look to the Most High as our help comes from Him!!!
May the Lord who made a way by parting the waters and rescued His people from the burning furnace move the mountains and make a way. Amen!!
My Inspiration to write this song comes from my mother’s prayer which typically begins with Psalm 121:1-2.
Scripture References: Psalms 121; 1 John 5:14; Exodus 14:21-22; Daniel 3:24-25; Isaiah 45:2
Psalm 91 has been a go to scripture whenever I needed God’s assurance and His promise for protection. I have long desired to write a song based on this Psalm, but was not able to until Covid-19 impacted the world.
When the pandemic hit in 2020, like most of us, I would wake up to messages or news of people losing their loved ones or jobs or businesses. I saw FEAR and ANXIETY among everyone around like never before and living miles away from the family, I also started to worry about their well being. As days of chaos and uncertainty turned into weeks and months, Holy Spirit put a melody in my heart and I started singing the words of Psalm 91 as a declaration. This marked the beginning of a fruitful journey.
I witnessed God’s faithfulness throughout the journey as He has led us through many challenges. Even during the making in Telugu, God used this song to strengthen the band members who were facing some personal battles.
Encouraged by the testimonies of how BHAYAPADANU has been a blessing to many during the past year, we translated it into Hindi. It is my prayer that God would use NA DAROONGA to bring HOPE into people’s lives during these tough times and remind everyone about His unfailing LOVE.
