Hillsong United has definitely changed the landscape of contemporary Christian music over the years. It does not only aim to showcase talent, but also magnify and glorify God, as well as encourage believers all over the world to live this life with dignity. The group’s live performance of “Not Today” will give you the strength to battle it out with the enemy.
The main point of the song, as stated in its chorus is to lay our lives to God, and not to the devil. Whenever we glorify the name of Jesus, and commit our lives to Him, it’s as if we’re telling the devil that he won’t win against us, “Not Today.”
The Bible clearly says that “if God is for us, who can be against us”, and “be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” These verses are just proofs that the Lord we serve and believe can overpower all the forces that is in this world. As His followers, we are encouraged not to give up our battles with the enemy – the world, the flesh, and the devil. If we continue in God’s Word, we can work wonders and maybe turn this world back to Him.
However, doing it on a big scale is not the most urgent goal. It should begin in the life of every Christian. Once we are capable of winning our individual battles consistently, that’s when we can hope of making an impact.
