Its not just a lyric, its the Scripture, Romans 8: If God is for us, who can be against us? In the midst of all that can come at you in life and the struggles we can be reminded, I know God is for me.My hope is that every time people pick up that album and see that cover, theyll rememberits true: God is for us and therefore...
You dont want to look back and go, Its worked perfectly to plan.
Because then somehow its your glory involved in that.
Thats always my heart and hope in the midst of everything.
And the title song, If Our God Is For Us, is just an explosion across every avenue, on our tours, on the radio, in the churches, its just a real privilege to be a part of that song.
I can look back and just see Gods hand in so many ways and it couldnt be unless God had come through and let this happen and opened these doors.
And Ive just tried to be faithful to walk in it and take any opportunity Ive had to make decisions along the way that hopefully were smart and had the wisdom God gives, from going from just me into a band, and always being in the church. The reason Im here is because of God and simply making myself available to Him. Chris dropped the needle on some old Willie Nelson records and thats how he learned to play. We waited until a lot later in life so we understand better what a commitment is and what were walking into maybe than if we were twenty. I was saved at a young age and had a great desire to follow God. We had a three-hour drive there and he never mentioned it to me. Later, that same guy said that God really wanted him to go pick me up that day. It came back to that prayer that Id do whatever God wanted me to do and I really sensed Him leading. Taking pity on the boy, his father handed him his very first guitar. As a kid, I would pray to God and ask what He wanted me to do. In the middle of the concert, he said, I have a good friend here, Chris, and hes going to play for you a little bit.At the age of fourteen, Tomlin wrote his first worship song, not knowing that he would one day pen some of the most sung songs of all time: Were just newly married so were working all these things out and enjoying each other. I was really focused on that through my whole life, even as a kid and through high school. But theres a guy at my church who traveled as an evangelist. He took me with him one time and said, You can help me sell tapes and set up. He had his keyboard up there and I was just learning to play the piano. By the time I was a junior in college, I was travelling all the time and leading worship at different things. Even when I tried to do other things, He reminded me of that prayer and brought me back to it. Weve been floored by the responseone indication whether people like it or not, of course, is sales.I played at my church every once in a while, but thats not a good gauge, because everybody loves you at your church. I was beginning to understand that I had a gift for leading worship. I remember praying when I was an eighth grader, God, whatever You want me to do, I want to be available for the rest of my life. It was never God would you please make me a musician, I really want to write songs, I really want to be on stage. My dad said, Whatever you do, Chris, just get me a diploma. And its been the best ever for us in all these years, which were just grateful for. Some of them arent going to be great radio singles but theyre some of the most important songs on the record especially for the church.I see a lot of passion in the church, especially in the younger generation.
