Against the odds

When we’re in a situation where it seems there is no chance of either getting through it at all or getting through it without long term physical or emotional scars, it can be hard to trust anyone who tells us all will be well, even God.

But God has plans for us, He already knows our future. He already knows whether we’ll make it through that situation or not, because he’s already planned our lives long before we were even born.

What better time to trust God for our future, than when our future looks hopeless, as our God is a God of miracles and even when the odds are against us, if it’s his plan for us to succeed, we will.

When then doctor says ‘we’re out of options’
When the one you love walks out the door
When the money’s low, but those bills keep coming
And it’s hard to have faith in the storm

When the world says I don’t have what it takes
I will stare defeat right in the face and say

I believe my God is able
To make any mountain move
To reach and pull me through
I am Yours and You are faithful
No matter where I am
I’m in Your hands and I will stand
Against the odds
Against the odds

Why should I fear, why should I worry?
When the walls cave in and the waters rise
This is for my good and this is for Your glory
So, I will lay it down and I will lift my eyes

When the war keeps raging on and on
I will rest, cos it’s already won

I believe my God is able
To make any mountain move
To reach and pull me through
I am Yours and You are faithful
No matter where I am
I’m in Your hands and I will stand
Against the odds
Against the odds

Cos You took all my brokenness
And You carried it to the cross
You died and You rose again
Against the odds

This is for my good and this is for Your glory
So, I will lay it down and I will lift my eyes

Cos I believe my God is able
To make any mountain move
To reach and pull me through
I am Yours and You are faithful
No matter where I am
I’m in Your hands and I will stand
Against the odds
Against the odds
Against the odds
Against the odds
