'Runnin' Elevation Worship Featuring Brandon Lake

Humans aren’t perfect, but God loves us anyway, even in our unbelief. 

If that statement resonates with you, take a listen to this powerful song, ‘Runnin’, by Elevation Worship featuring Brandon Lake. About 15 years into my walk with Jesus, it felt as if there was an empty space in my heart where Jesus used to be. I was struggling with unbelief after a series of well-timed events. In a matter of days, we were bankrupt, my children were diagnosed with special needs, and I lost a baby. 

I sat in church week after week. I knew God was good. I knew he was there for me. I knew he had the ability to give my faith. Yet, I found myself in a spiritual desert. Now I may not know your circumstances nor what led to your moment of unbelief. However, I can tell you God is with you. He will provide an oasis in the middle of the spiritual desert you’re walking through. 

You and I aren’t the only ones who have struggled with unbelief. The Bible is filled with story after story. In Mark 9:24, we read about the plight of the father whose son was possessed by demons. His words will resonate with you when he cried out, “I believe; help my unbelief!”  

This plea — this prayer — of a desperate father, expresses in five simple words of experiencing a spiritual desert. It reveals all followers have both belief and unbelief, both doubt and faith, and both hope and desperation all at the same time. Jesus didn’t abandon the Father. Instead, Jesus healed his son because even in the father’s unbelief, he still had faith in who Jesus was.

These examples reveal God will continue to pursue and love us even in our unbelief. If you’re struggling to with your faith, you came to the right place. Looking back at the spiritual desert of unbelief that I endured, I can see God’s fingerprints all over my life as he worked behind the scenes to heal, strengthen, and comfort me. 

This powerful music video paired will be the oasis in your desert. It will be a healing balm to your soul as you cry out to God. The lyrics remind us, “Your love is better than life. I can’t even wrap my mind around it. One day here in Your house is better than a thousand elsewhere. Your love keeps on runnin, runnin, runnin, keeps on runnin after me.”

“Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you,” Psalm 63:3.
