Jesus is our advocate. He rejects the accusations of the enemy because he is also our perfect Justice. He knows what is true and what is not. When there is change to be made, he convicts our hearts through the presence of the Holy Spirit. He advocates for us before the Father because he has chosen us as his own.

I take comfort in these aspects of the character of Jesus. He is for me. He is not against me.

As I meditated on these truths, a song came to me: “Raise a Hallelujah” by Bethel music. I played the song loud and proud, singing along and dancing in my bedroom. The lyrics set my heart free from the accusations of the enemy, as I declared my faith and trust in the One who loves me.

Take a minute to read through these lyrics and then maybe you want to join me in a victory dance, raising a hallelujah that is louder than the unbelief swirling around today!

Verse 1

I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies

I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief

I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody

I raise a hallelujah, Heaven comes to fight for me

Chorus

I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm

Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar

Up from the ashes, hope will arise

Death is defeated, the King is alive

Verse 2

I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me

I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee

I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery

I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me

Bridge

Sing a little louder

In the presence of my enemies

Sing a little louder

Louder than the unbelief

Sing a little louder

My weapon is a melody

Sing a little louder

Heaven comes to fight for me
