Video: Luke Wareham and Rachel Mason – I Will Not Fear
Luke Wareham and Rachel Mason’s new single I Will Not Fear is out today.
‘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.
