UK worship leaders Luke Wareham and Rachel Mason to release ‘I will not fear’
‘I will not fear’ is the latest song to be released on the 4th September by Luke Wareham and Rachel Mason who are worship leaders and songwriters based in the South West of the UK, produced by Tim and Jonny Stephenson. Luke and Rachel released their first EP ‘Whisper’ in March this year with the song Whisper making it to number 11 in the UK Christian Music Charts. They have a passion for writing songs that lead people into the presence of God, that help people fix their eyes on Jesus and to experience afresh the healing power of the Holy Spirit. Their prayer is that the songs they write will bring hope to a broken world speaking prophetically the truth of Jesus into everyday life situations. They regularly lead worship at in the local church and at various events around the UK.
‘I will not fear’ was written largely in response to the current testing times and is based on Psalm 121. Luke wrote the song with his friend Matt Caddick when reflecting on a talk his Dad, a Senior Pastor, did on John 14 when Jesus says, ‘’Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid’. Luke says ‘It’s a song to share for this tough time. I’ve been reflecting on hearing from friends, family and young people who I work with who are suffering with fear and anxiety particularly at the moment. As I was worshipping during a Burn 24/7 event online over lockdown I felt God say he was watching over the world, that we need to look to him and that though mountains and valleys may form God is over it all’. Rachel says lockdown has ‘taught me to let go of the plans I have for myself and trust God with everything and this song declares the truth that we do not have to fear when we fix our mind on God’. Their prayer is that the song would speak into people’s lives and help them to shift their focus from what is happening in the world to Jesus and the eternal hope and peace that brings.
‘I will not fear’ is available to stream and download on all music platforms and their YouTube channel has the brand new lyric video. The chords to the song are available to download via SongSelect.
