I have always loved this song but I heard it again on Sunday and I can't stop listening to it! Especially the part, "Mighty Deliverer, our Triumph and Truth"!! That is our God, that is our Jesus! I love seeing all these people worshipping and praising and I can only imagine what it would be like to be there someday and be a part of it.
On Sunday a guest speaker told us the story of the beginning of Hillsong. She said the week they were supposed to record their first album the music director quit and took all the music with him! The little secretary, who happened to be Darlene Zschech, had written a song, so she brought it to the table and that's how Shout to the Lord became a household worship song!
The message was to be ready for opportunity and to write down your vision so that when the time comes you'll be ready to seize it! Darlene had a song so she wrote it down even though she was just a secretary, and when the time came she brought it up and now look at her! God has used her in so many incredible ways! She has had profound influence on worship music all over the world!
