The Story Behind “The Blessing”
“I’m so moved by this song and how quickly it came about,” shares Kari Jobe about the power of this song. “Because this song is based on scripture, the message is timeless, and we wanted to release it as quick as we could knowing the effect it could have on people’s hearts and spirits immediately, as it did ours. Also, God knew it would be something we could hold onto during a season of our lives that’s full of uncertainties and unknowns. Do not be afraid, God is with you.”
The song was written at Elevation during a writing session with Jobe, Carnes and Elevation’s Steven Furtick and Chris Brown searching for the presence of God. It was written on a Thursday and that following Sunday they sang it for the first time at the Elevation Ballantyne campus and released the video five days later worldwide. Shortly after posting the live music video, it was clear this was a very special song as visible in the live taping.
“I think one of the most refreshing things about this song is that while a lot of people are facing such a deficit of encouragement in their lives,” explains Elevation’s Chris Brown, “this song comes along and is relentless in the encouragement and blessing it delivers from scripture over them, along with the assurance that God is with us and for us always.”
“People are in great need of being reminded of the promises in the word of God. I’m so thankful that His promises are promises of peace and strength. He says that in this world we will have trouble, but to take heart because He’s overcome it. He’s always with us, in every season.” Kari Jobe
