For King and Country has put out a lot incredible songs since their first album in 2012. They share deep truths about God and the Christian lifestyle through unique and upbeat songs. One of their newer songs, “God Only Knows,” is a perfect example of this as they weave challenging and thoughtful lyrics through an engaging beat and thought provoking piano.
This song leads the listener to consider the secrets and insecurities we hold deep within ourselves and work incredibly hard to avoid letting anyone see. The mask we put on and the way it drastically affects our lifestyle and the depth of relationships we’re able to develop while not sharing who we truly are with those around us. However, the Chorus immediately dives into the scriptural truth that God knows us. Not only does He know us but He loves us throughout our pain and brokenness. He forgives our sinful thoughts and actions, He brings our secrets to light and pours out grace and strength to repent and change, and covers over the weaknesses we perceive in ourselves with joy and acceptance.
Take a chance to listen to this song and discuss the lyrics with someone close to you. Use Romans 8:26-27 alongside this conversation and share the way that the Holy Spirit has spoken truth to and through you in order to bring healing to yours and others insecurities.
