This song Hosanna is a song of praise and a heart of worship unto the one and only true God. God inhabits the praises of His people. He wants you to communicate with Him on daily basis. Try to take take from your busy schedule several times a day to give God what He deserves and desires. Oh how wonderful it is to open your heart to God in total adoration. Jesus said He will take care of you.
Israel Houghton said it’s torment to look in the mirror, and not recognize the man in the reflection. How incredible it would be to love someone through their true and ugly moments?! It’s a journey to work off the mask to become your authentic and whole self. Honesty is the key to finding that love which brings an identity found in Christ,” Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna! Hosanna to the highest!
The words of Israel Houghton
Houghton also said the church hasn’t been a safe place for people to be transparent and open up about what’s really going on.
“The risk of being honest can lead to people ostracizing you. It’s easier to cling to the persona, the stage, the reputation that people want to see. But in my weakness, my God is strong. When I was reckless, His reckless love chased me down and brought healing that I never experienced.”
Houghton believes now is the time to take the mask off. He also hopes others learn how to receive God’s love and for the church to be a place where the broken can bring their guilt and shame.
“You know how certain songs come with their own set of reverb so to speak? This is one of those songs for me. It speaks to the very fabric of my life. Past, present & future. The visuals that this song paints, God’s furious reckless unstoppable love, grace, redemption & unrelenting mercy for us. Wow!” he said.
Encourage Yourself: One must strive to keep God as their main focus. Yes you can get hurt in the church and no place is safe, but if you keep your eyes on the prize. You will always win with God on your side. Be real, be honest, God loves it. Must of all live Holy.
