Eight-time GRAMMY® nominated artist Matt Maher released a new single, “Your Love Defends Me” in June 2017. We debuted it in our show last week and we’re pleased to share the official lyric video. The performance video will be released soon and we’ll post it when it becomes available.
To give you some insight and the inspiration for the song, Matt had this to share:
“This song comes out of Psalm 91, and the idea of God being not a refuge, but our ONLY refuge. I think we can all relate to moments in our lives where who we were (or who we’ll become) comes crashing to the forefront of who we are, and all of a sudden there’s this fight happening inside for who gets control – the past or the future or the present moment now. When you combine that with a social media context that is always recording and documenting everything, it lives on in perpetuity either as an accusation or as a testimony. To put it simply – evil is in the business of accusation but God is in the business of raising up testimony – of who He is and what He’s done. This song talks about how God is a defender. How the love of God is not just a defense, but it’s really the only defense we have that can stand against the inconsistency of ourselves. God is your defense and what He says about you is what matters. That’s what stays.”
You can catch Matt in concert in August at “An Evening with Matt Maher & Audrey Assad” in Fresno, CA and headlines the AbbeyFest on September 16 in Paoli, PA.
