“Battle Is The Lord’s,” the first new single in nine years from legendary GRAMMY and Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Rebecca St. James. The powerful anthem of praise features Bethel Music singer/songwriter Brandon Lake.
“The message is so relevant to what the world is dealing with right now,” Rebecca says of “Battle Is The Lord’s.” “The heartbeat is that the Church can sing this song, and people can be pointed to the fact that God is in control. I think in this time, it’s so easy for all of us to fear, but He’s calling us to a place of deeper trust.”
“It was an incredibly life-changing moment and probably one of the more instantly transforming moments with God that I’ve ever had,” she shares. “I encountered the Holy Spirit in such a radical way that it made me see music in this non-threatening way again. I realised I missed the connection I have with Jesus when I sing. I missed this aspect of my relationship with Him that happens when I’m living in that sweet spot of calling and music.”
“‘Battle Is The Lord’s’ has been personally encouraging to me in my journey with this project, even to finish out the work that we’re doing,” Rebecca adds. “There were a lot of old triggers, old fears and old pain associated with music that I had to overcome. This song calls me to trust in God and see that He’s gone before me. It’s His battle to fight, not mine.”
