Popular Christian worship group, Elevation released new album that tends to address the current issues facing the world with faith over fear as the album is set to encourage believers to find hope, rest, and freedom in God’s power.
The album titled “Graves into Gardens,” featured the breakout single “The Blessing: Live” featuring Cody Carnes and Kari Jobe, “My Testimony,” which started at its No. 25 peak on April 18, and “Rattle,” a powerful anthem responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting period of quarantine and social distancing.
Elevation Worship frontman Chris Brown told The Christian Post, “We’re clearly in such a unique and quite unstable time for our world right now. And I think we’re all trying to figure out how we face each day, how we respond to the reports we hear every single day. But I want to remind us that God is unshaken by any of this and His plans are still good.”
The weapons we have to fight with each day, the weapons to fight the battles in our minds or the anxiety that’s trying to creep in our spirits, those weapons we fight with are not weapons of this world. Praise is our weapon, and worship is our sword.
“When we choose to worship instead of worry, It’s our way of throwing a counter-attack on whatever the enemy is trying to bring against us. We can be confident that we are not having to fight for victory, and because of Jesus, we’re fighting from a place of victory.”
Elevation worship is one of the most noted Christian bands which is the musical arm of Elevation church led by Pastor Steven Furtick, the worship band is known for the popular songs like, “Do It Again,” “O Come to the Altar,” and “Here Again.”
