God Will Forever Be By Your Side, If You Obey Him

The lyrics of Christian band Tenth Avenue North’s “By Your Side,” are a deep moving sound piece. This lovely song eloquently cuts through the intimate framework of a person’s existence. The words of this song are remarkable! It's reminiscent of how much God desperately loves you. You see firsthand the extensive length of suffering Jesus endured to earn your love. Did you know that Jesus Christ is God reincarnated in the flesh!

There may be scrupulous days when you are engaged in so many activities that you forget to draw, upon the strength of the Lord God. You can tend to look for love elsewhere.

God smoothly reminds us to draw on his strength. The Lord God poses a deep-rooted question in "By Your Side."

"Why are you still searching for love, as if the Great I am, who sustains you during every second of your life is not enough?"

These words may bring tears to your eyes, when you think of all the times you neglected to draw on God’s strength and love. Because of this, you may have been deeply burned in the process. We all are guilty of this, neglecting God, and trying to do things on our own.


It's Best to Simply Live with God Every Day

Surely, a treasured friend may eventually disappoint you one day, and a member of your cherished family circle could alienate you too. Surely, you're profoundly hurt, and you may have an urge to retaliate to get even.

If you ever avenge yourself, you'll ultimately ruin the inner fabric of your core essence. And cause your tender heart to harden beyond repair. Your heart hardens, since, it becomes harder to ask God for forgiveness.

Every person is a sinner! God makes this known to us and continues to offer us a heart of forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Sin is the faith of our human nature. We are guilty as animals.

Your sin estranges you from receiving God's fully-fledged grace and blessing. God wants to you to call him Abba Father! Simply ask him to forgive you and he will. You must receive a proper baptism to be a part of Jesus family. God will cover you with his grace when you're heartfelt and sincere his love.


In Spite of Everything, God Longs to Carry You into His World

God comes back to you in Tenth Avenue North's, "By Your Side," lyrics, to demonstrate how he, the everlasting God, in the person of Jesus Christ swallowed the grave, on the night of his crucifixion. The night God was pierced in the heart for your sake was a blessing. God's body bled and died for you. This took place so you could receive the gift of forgiveness and the awesome guidance of the Holy Spirit once you're baptized.

In spite of it all, God longs to carry you in. He wants you where he is! Though you'll not ever completely comprehend the majestic implication of God’s love for you, you'll know it intuitively.

On certain dark days, you may naively try to run away. Truthfully, there is nowhere to run, or go except straight into God’s tender loving arms. You should practice this when you are miserable, and especially when things are also terrific for you. God will forever be there to catch you, and to comfort you, in an unmatched style.

You simply can turn to God during every moment of each day, in a childlike demeanor. No one will ever fully comprehending his unique love, nor understand why he swallowed the grave to set us free on that redemptive day when Jesus died. Boy oh boy, I am sure glad Jesus answered God's call!

Would You, Allow God to Lift Up Your Face?

Jesus Christ Gave Us a New Law in the New Testament

Jesus Christ nailed God's Ten Laws to the Cross, when he died. This is when he created a brand-new covenant with the children of God iterated in the New Testament!

John 13:34-35 “I give you a new commandment: love on another; as I have loved you, so you are to love one another. If there is this love among you, then all will know that you are my disciples.”

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

You must know God truly cares for you! He will not ever let go of you, if you are his child. Therefore, cling to God and run to him every chance you get. Remain in his benediction and grace. Develop your faith by praying and fasting, and be true to yourself. Obey God every day.

When you hear lovely melodies such as Tenth Avenue North’s “By Your Side,” you're reminded of the way you were. Hopefully you'll vow never to go back to your old ways ever again. You strip the old you like an onion, and the new you who depends on God for everything will shine through you. This in turn will twirl your moments into days of lasting blessings for evermore!

Will You Stand Up for God, Today?
