This song is based on 2 Timothy 1:7. What a wonderful God we have who transforms us and gives us a sound mind and helps us to renew our minds with His word. When we experience the true peace of Jesus we no longer are dominated by fear.
“For God did not give us a spirit of fear. He gave us a spirit of power and of love and of a good mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
I was in darkness, I’m in light now, I’m with Christ now, I have life now, I’m so in love with the verses I write down, I was blind then, I have sight now, I speak His words, and not mine now,Isaiah Manifest & Cdaboss – Sound Mind
The power is in the lyrics.
These two artists do not only rap words but they rap experience and truth. In this well-crafted piece of art, they describe something so powerful and that is the change that comes when you become a born again person.
You were once one way and now you are different. Ask any true Christian and you will see this is the scope of their story. Once I was in darkness now I am in the light, Once I was on the path of wrath and now I am in the path with the forgiven.
You see, we as human beings are born with a flawed nature that is bent towards darkness and we do not know this but we are comfortable with a path that is deadly poisonous to us and this path leads to condemnation. It is a path that bounty leads us to Hell.
A specific part of the song that I resonate with and I myself have experience with is this part:
I used to smoke blunts, but I wasn’t blunt with me, Always high, at my lowest, I was underneath, Swore I was woke, but not awake to my reality, I knew of God but I aint know Him at all Fatherly,
This hit home. This speaks of a journey that is so familiar, so painful and so real. No matter how many people tell you that weed and getting high is not toxic for your health. They are wrong. It is merely an excuse for us to stay where we are at. Afraid of change and thinking we are woke, trapped in a cage. The enemy has us exactly where He wants us. Thinking we are smarter but being ignorant to the spiritual, mental, physical and emotional reality of decay we are allowing and embracing.
The enemy wants you distracted, He wants you high, so you can forget the most high.
God wants you sober for a reason, it is about time we remember who we are! Here are His words:
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. – 1 Peter 5:8
The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. – 1 Peter 4:7
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. – 1 Peter 1:13
It is clear. There is nothing more powerful than someone with a sound and sober mind. But this mind must be transformed and not conformed (Romans 12:1-2).
its amazing, How he saved me, Yeah he made me just for him, I didn’t notice, had no focus, At my brokest, he came in. I don’t ever wanna go back, This a new me I deleted all my old tracks, God I gave you all my heart I know you hold thatIsaiah Manifest & Cdaboss – Sound Mind
This is my favourite part of the song because it speaks about the mercy and grace He has so freely given us. Though we are at our worst He is already there waiting with arms wide open, waiting for each and every one of us. When we seek His forgiveness, When we truly repent and realise the reality of our sinfulness and what it has done with our relationship with Jesus, we can then only truly see. Then only will the veil before our eyes leave.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is the seal He marks us with as believers (see Ephesians). How do you know you are saved? Check your fruit, it should line up with the Fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25). The old self is no longer who you are but now you have a new identity in Jesus Christ.
Like the artist says: “This is a new me I deleted all my old tracks.”
Seek Jesus above everything you do. There is a greater satisfaction waiting for you on the other side. Something so great that you would not be able to run away from it.
Jesus is all we need.
Thank you to the artist for your incredible talent and work, your passion and your authenticity. You have truly struck inspiration out of me and I pray it brings the world to Jesus’ feet.
