Worship leader and songwriter Kari Jobe's new single from her highly successful "Majestic" "I Am Not Alone" is currently a top 20 hit on Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart. Currently standing at #14, the song is fast become a favorite song across many churches.
On social media, Jobe talks about the inspiration behind the crafting of the song: "The story behind #IAmNotAlone..." she wrote. "Exodus 14:14-'The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still'."
She then spoke about going through struggles and hearing songs that help alleviate those stresses and pains.
"There are so many hard things we face on this side of heaven. Songs that minister to me the most are ones that remind me God knows and sees where I am and is working on my behalf. It's real and it's life," she wrote. "What a sweet reminder that we are not alone and that we have a mighty God who goes before us, and never ever leaves us. This song inspires us to 'draw near to God and He will draw near to us' (James 4:8)."
She continued, "I began writing this song in Australia with Marty Sampson and Mia Fieldes. We found ourselves singing one part over and over again. The chorus, which says, 'I am not alone, I am not alone.' I took the song back to the states and felt led to finish it with my band. While my band and I were traveling and ministering, we felt a common theme telling us to remind people in the congregation that God goes before us, fighting for us (see Exodus 14:14)."
