Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:
I was praying about what words to share with a young man being bullied in his school. Of reminding him that bullies pretty much always act that way because *they're* scared of something. My mind drifted to my old Hip Hop song (done awkwardly enough that we in the studio still laugh at a middle aged woman bass player attempting this... only with God's help and sense of humor!) -- JAMES FOUR SEVEN.

Through James 4:7, God tells us to flee from evil, from those who seek our harm. We may not be able to physically do so, but we can refuse to let them into our minds.  In James 4:8, God gives us the METHOD to escape fear:  DRAW NEAR to Him.

Fear -- staying away from God -- is your choice.  
Peace -- choosing to draw near to God -- is your choice.    

These are the thoughts
that led to this song..... not to preach, but to reassure:
God does not WANT us to live in fear.
God gives us THE WAY OUT:   Choose to come to Him.  James 4:8.
Dedicated to our God who loves us THAT much.  Wow.  12 December 2013

Luke 10: 18 NKJV:  Jesus speaking,
"And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven."

GOD SPEAKING in Deuteronomy 30:19-20; see note at end.
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days..." [by ROMANS 11, God extends this inivation to Gentiles / non Jews who seek Him and accept Him. Grafted In.]

James 4: 6-8
"But he [God] gives us even more grace to stand against such evil desires. As the Scriptures say, 'God opposes the proud but favors the humble.'  So humble yourselves before God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 
Come close to God, and God will come close to you....
