Highlands Worship Globally Releases Heaven Is My Home
Scripture / History Reveal That After Suffering Comes Revival – God Has Not Abandoned Us; American Songwriter Premieres "Heaven Is My Home" Video
The new song from the worship team at Birmingham, AL-based Church of the Highlands, one of America's largest churches, was inspired by Lead Pastor Chris Hodges' Lift Up Your Heads sermon preached Aug. 2 and available online now at https://churchofthehighlands.com/
In the sermon, Pastor Chris Hodges explains why he believes that "We are at the doorstep of a great revival." Taking listeners through both Biblical and historical references, he shares that revival always tends to follow suffering.
Looking at the riots and unsettling that occurred in the 60s, Pastor Chris recalls in his sermon how the cover of Time Magazine, on April 8, 1966, asked the question, "Is God Dead," and then five years later (6/21/71) the cover of Time read, "The Jesus Revolution."
"Every time there has been an increase of wickedness, there has been an increase of the Word of God," says Pastor Chris, revealing that God is indeed not dead, is still paying attention and is working even amidst the suffering. In fact, in suffering, God may do his best work.
"'Heaven Is Our Home' especially resonates because of the challenges of 2020 – the pandemic, racial and political unrest, etc.," says Worship Pastor John Larson, who leads the Highlands Worship team of 1,000+ members and 70+ full or part-time musicians on staff. "Many are suffering and may 'feel' as if God is not paying attention, but as Pastor Chris shares, God has not abandoned us. Heaven is indeed our home."
Led by Church of the Highlands' Grandview campus worship leader Daniel Patti, the song's companion video premieres from American Songwriter (https://americansongwriter.com/
