Today’s song comes from what some in the Christian music industry refer to “The Fathers of the Modern Worship Movement.” Sonic Flood was the first major band to take traditional church hymns and put a modern spin on them. Although this transition was questioned by many in the church, like it or not, Sonic Flood changed the way worship music is performed today.
He who [a]dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! – Psalm 91:1-2
The lyrics of Carried Away reminds me of one of the Psalmists in the Old Testament. Like the famous Footprints Poem, at some point in life God carries us through storms, trials, and tribulations. However, to be sheltered by the Lord, you have to be willing to place your sole faith and trust in Jesus. When the next spiritual flood seeks to sweep away your faith, seek shelter upon the solid rock of Jesus.
