Songs About Defeating Evil
As a Christian, we constantly face battles in our spiritual life, but how do we triumph over evil? For we have no power of our own, the only way to defeat evil is to tap into the power of God.
We Worship a Mighty and Just God who deserves all the glory we can give him. By lifting our voices in worship, we connect with God’s omnipotence and strength, making it possible to vanquish evil. In order to help you prevail over evil, I have compiled a collection of some of my favorite praise songs about defeating evil.
1. “Jesus” by Chris Tomlin
Chris Tomlin’s “Jesus” is almost certainly going to be the first song that comes to anyone’s mind when they are asked to mention songs about defeating evil.
When I first heard this song on the radio, I immediately cranked up the volume and began to pray and sing along. In my opinion, the best thing about this song is how it centers our worship around the majesty of Jesus Christ.
It leads us to praise God for the reality of who Jesus was and is to anybody who believes in His name. When asked what he meant when he declared he’s the way, the truth, and the life, Jesus said, “Join me.” (John 14:6). When we consider the fullness of who He is, His majesty becomes manifest.
The name of Jesus is a powerful name. So, let’s move on to the next tune on our playlist.
2. “The Lion and The Lamb” by Big Daddy Weave
I’ve recently discovered a newfound appreciation for the first song on this list. This is a new song for our worship team, but it has quickly become a congregation favorite.
The music really gives life to the lyrics, making them much more potent. That which is said in Isaiah 45:22, is reflected in this hymn. Before God every knee will bow; by Him every tongue will swear. God has sworn on His own honor, spoken with unwavering sincerity, and this is His word that shall not be revoked. On that day of glorification, when we see Jesus coming down in glory, He will be more powerful than ever before.
Who is there to oppose our God? Absolutely no one!
3. “What A Beautiful Name” by Hillsong Worship
When you listen to this praise hymn with closed eyes and raised palms, you may find that tears start to fall. The power and name of Jesus are magnified fully in this song. His name is majestic and glorious in addition to being powerful and mighty.
I really like how the song begins with the words “In the beginning” (from John 1:1), which serve as a reminder that He was there right from the start.
“In the very beginning, he was there with God.” – John 1:1-2. Name beyond all names, there is no other name in the heavens and the earth worthy of all our worship, for He is the Author and Creator of all things, and He rules over everything that He has made.
The power of our God is greater than anything else in the universe.
4. “Promised Land” – Crowder
Over the past few years, I’ve grown to be a tremendous admirer of Crowder’s music. All of his songs are great to worship and he has such a distinct flair.
This hymn serves as a reminder that our God’s might is boundless. Although our histories are unique, and our personal stories are varied, we all have a common truth: we are sinners who fall short of God’s glory.
Everyone needs a savior who can do more than merely make up for their sins and return them to full health. Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is the only one who can give us such strength. Who exactly is in charge? We can have Christ’s presence and power within us.
5. “The Same Power” – Jeremy Camp
Lyrically, “The Same Power” – Jeremy Camp is one of the best songs about defeating evil, you can learn a lot about God’s awesome might through this song. That power is inside all who believe is the song’s central truth. To those of us who put our faith in him, he possesses an awesome power that is unparalleled.
The strength God used to resurrect Christ and place him at his right hand in the heavens is the same strength that “supersedes all rule, power and dominion, and every name that is summoned, in this age and in the age to come.” – 1 Peter 1:19-21; Ephesians 1. We are victorious, and no evil force or weapon can stop us now. This triumph was won through Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection from the dead.
In order for the light of this victory and power to shine into the lives of everyone we meet in Jesus’ name, we must radiate it wherever we go.
6. “Our God” – Chris Tomlin
In the midst of the noise and distractions that characterize most of our lives, this song serves as a welcome redirection to the One who truly matters: Jesus.
The Lord addressed Martha and said, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and agitated about a lot of things, but in reality, you need just one.
Mary has made the right choice, and no one can take that away from her. – Luke 10:41-42. Stress and anxiety arise when we allow ourselves to become preoccupied with things that don’t really matter, but when we place our attention where it belongs—at the feet of Jesus—they evaporate. This is an evergreen principle that Jesus taught Martha in Luke 10.
There is no God greater than our God. Not even close! It’s time to refocus on what really matters by engaging in worship.
7. “Because He Lives” by Matt Maher
Last but not least, I want to share with you the song that has always meant the most to me because it encapsulates what I consider to be the most fundamental truth about the power of our God: He lives! That’s what separates our God from all the others: He rules and is very much a part of the past and present.
He is still among us, and He has extended the offer of salvation to everyone. The God who made the universe, wrote the Bible, and made everything else wants to spend time with you. Before you were ever born, he knew you. He hopes to set you free from your enslavement and shower you with abundance.
To put it simply, we would have no reason to continue living if He hadn’t survived.
