Fear Is a Liar - Zach Williams




The Experience: Not good enough... not right... not strong enough... When you let the lies you and others tell you seep into your heart...


Music video: Fear Is a Liar follows three people through their darkest moments: a man pulls into his garage after losing his job, an elderly woman is alone and just diagnosed with cancer, and a teenage girl comes home after a terrible day to her mom's complaints, and hateful text messages telling her she's ugly and friendless. The man decides to commit suicide. The elderly woman begins to lose hair. The teenage girls lets those insults and urges to commit suicide into her own self-image (her journal). But as Zach Williams invokes fire and love from on high, his wife saves him, her grandchildren send her flowers, and her mom tells her she's beautiful. The video underlines the power we all have - for good or bad - in the lives, fears and hopes of those around us.

The Meaning of Fear Is a Liar: If fear truly is a liar, then Fear Is a Liar offers a powerful image of who you truly are: good, right, strong, a fighter, worthy, loved, beautiful, pure, proud. But fear blinds you to that. Fear stops you in your tracks and stifles your path to happiness. Fear is often stronger than you are. That's why Zack Williams invokes power from above - let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel. The one who made us knows the truth of who we truly are. Zach Williams follows up Fear Is a Liar with a series of real-life testimonies on fear and deliverance here.

Ask yourself: Who tells you the truth about yourself? Do they love you?

Album: Chain Breaker (2016)

LYRICS:


When he told you you're not good enough
When he told you you're not right
When he told you you're not strong enough
To put up a good fight
When he told you you're not worthy
When he told you you're not loved
When he told you you're not beautiful
That you'll never be enough

Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
Cause fear he is a liar

When he told you were troubled
You'll forever be alone
When he told you you should run away
You'll never find a home
When he told you you were dirty
And you should be ashamed
When he told you you could be the one
That grace could never change

Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
Cause fear he is a liar

Let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears
Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel

Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
Cause fear he is a liar
