  • Israel Houghton – You Found Me

    This song hit me when I first heard it, it’s a good story of how faithful and persistent God is with pursuing the 1 lost lamb in the flock of 99. In my case, that lost lamb was me. 🙂

  • Planetshakers – I just want You

    there is no greater love than YOURS
    Nothing else could ever compare,
    and Even If I searched all the world
    I would never find a love like Yours

    This song struck to my Heart. as i am listening to this song, something is pressing to my chest . I Could actually listen to this a countless times because it’s amazing . The prescence of God is manifested. it touches my very soul. .

    Something inside me wanting to burst. C’mon!!

  • Israel & New Breed – Moving Forward

    When I first heard this song, it move me to tears. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life and there are times when the enemy reminds me of it and tells me that I’m such a loser. When I heard this song, it reminded me of the beauty of God’s grace and love and the fact that He “makes all things new” and forgives us of our sins is really refreshing. Truly, the love of Jesus for us is overwhelming and when you’re consumed by it, there’s other way to go but “follow You forward.”

  • Everywhere that I go –

    “You promised me You’d never leave
    You promised me I’m never forsaken
    I believe goodness and mercy will follow me
    Surrounding me where I go, everywhere that I go”

    This song really made my eyes perspire. I was reminded that no matter what happened in the past or whatever the future brings, God is always with you.

    “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Deuteronomy 31:6

  • planetshakers – get up

    This song reminds me to always praise Him. i love this song it’s very lively and hip, this just proves that praise song dont have to be boring as what most teenagers think nowadays. Praising and worshiping has no limitations, we can use different music genres to praise the Lord, <3

  • one of my favorite song is “the anthems”. this song inspires me every time i listen to it.It makes me more appreciate the victory of Jesus ..Hallellujah Jesus have won the victory..

  • Planet Shakers – Never Let Me Go

    This song has inspired me as it touches my heart so much. I gain confidence in everything I do, knowing in my heart that God is by my side and that he will never let me go.

    I am never afraid of anything I do, of the future and everything else through the Lord that guides my path. And I know that all problems we will be able to get through because God is bigger than my problems. I’m never ashamed of crying and praising God all the days of my life.

  • “If Not for Your Grace” by Israel and New Breed.

    The song reminds me that it is only because of God’s grace that I reach new heights and apart from His grace, I am absolutely hopeless and directionless. Whenever I am tempted to boast, the message of the song reminds me that it is not my strength that brings victory, but 100% of the time it is because of God’s ever-flowing, amazing grace. His grace humbles me and crushes every pride that silently creeps in my heart. His immeasurable grace brings me to my knees in worship because there’s just no reason for God to love me. It is only because of His grace and above all, His amazing, unconditional love.

    Thank you, Jesus, for your grace..

  • Israel Houghton – You Found Me

    Who I am that the Lord who created everything and may find and care on bigger and most amazing things will choose to find me and love me unconditionally. Gods love is so amazing.

  • The song “the anthem” is my life-theme song because whenever I feel discouraged and broken, God speaks to me thru this song, saying… “You shouldn’t be in that position of surrendering because the battle is OVER!I already WON the victory!” Thus, I can always declare that I’m NOT a loser, I’m a triumphant-victorious Christian!

  • My tribute medley

    Although this song is a mash-up of different praise and worship songs about being grateful, Israel Houghton made it so personal that we can all relate. It’s centered on God’s greatness and faithfulness and how we can all be grateful to what He has done.

    Whenever I hear the song, it reminds me of God’s love for me despite all my iniquities.

    I have 2 more favorites but are covers. – Great Is Thy Faithfulness From The Inside Out

  • Hi! sir Randell 🙂

    My favorite Israel Houghton song is ‘We Speak To Nations’

    Why? Because every time I hear this song it reminds of the fields that’s ready for harvest! My heart is for the nations because the Lord put the desire in me to really share the Word of God to His nations! It reminds me of the time, sometime last year.. September .. , that He sent me to a nation where they worship three million gods! After that experience, and then I learned about this song a few months after I went back here, this song really ministers to me and assures me that the Lord is really gonna send me out again to His nation .. True enough, this year .. 2012 .. I will be going out again to His field and I will again co-labor to His work to a nation where He is now leading me. It is all for His glory! Just like what Isaiah said in 6:8 “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” … and just like what Mark said in 16:15 ‘And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.’ This song really make my heart so excited and so on fire to share His word to the nations! All of these, i offer it all up to Him! I will forever magnify His name wherever He desires me to go! I will continually obey, love and trust Him each day! 🙂 Thank you sir Randell! Blessings to you and your whole family 🙂

  • Israel Houghton – We have overcome

    It is a great song indeed! If you are walking your life with God you are indeed victorious!
    I love this song because it reminds me that I am a victorious child of God. I am victorious because Christ already done it on the cross of the Calvary. I have the victory because I am on the winning side.

    Glory to God alone :))

  • Saving Grace by Israel Houghton

    It is a really beautiful reminder that we have been saved not by our efforts but because of the awesome grace that the Father has extended upon us through Jesus.

    It has moved me greatly into a deeper walk with the Lord and to become more dependent upon his love and grace as it is only because of His grace that He stretched out to us so that we can live and experience life to the full.

  • Nothing Else Matters and If Not For Your Grace by Israel Houghton and New Breed would be two of the songs that have helped me walk in a more intimate journey with God.
    I have faced so many pressures and problems, especially in my academics. There were times when I wanted to quit and just go back to my hometown. I am more than grateful to God for reminding me that I am a battle already won and that the mountains before me, no matter how I see them big enough, are possible to be moved by Him. God has also reiterated to me, also through the song Nothing Else Matters, that I have but an audience of One–that everything I do is for Him alone–and I will continue to seek that One who reigns in my life. God, ‘If Not For Your Grace’, I won’t be able to do anything in every season of my life.

  • “He Knows My Name” is my favorite song by Israel Houghton. Such a short song but it always inspires me and comforts me. There will be times that I can’t help but feel anxious, pressured, guilty and alone, but God always reminds me through this song, that he hears me when I cry out to him, he listens to me when I pray and he knows my every thought. I can’t hide anything from him. And I don’t need to, because he created me! He is my Maker. In fact he knows and cares about every single detail of my life. I trust him with my life because He alone knows everything about me. He alone knows what’s best for me. (:

  • like a fire – planetshakers:

    As a worship leader, before I always thought that hype was the main goal of praise of worship, that it would be define an effective song leader. Making people jump, shout, dance and all the other cool stuff you see people do when you watch praise and worship videos. But after a season of growing in the Lord He has taught me that it is more than just hype. Praise and worship is about Him and it will always be about Him. This song has helped see that and further more empowered me for that. The line in the song where it says “come like a flood and saturate me now” speaks volumes of how important praise and worship is to God and to us. It is a time of just you and Him, well Him and the church to be exact, and it excites me for what God is gonna do in the coming days! We sing this song in our services and we usually medley it with other songs and it has blessed a whole lot of people! More from God, more for His people!

  • Like a fire will always be my favorite. I never get tired of listening to it especially when I struggle with my faith in HIM.

    Let Your presence come and saturate
    Every part of me, make me new
    Let Your Spirit come and move within
    Fill me once again ’cause I need more
    Jesus I’m desperate for You
    Jesus I’m hungry for You
    Jesus I’m longing for You
    ‘Cause Lord You are all I want

  • The song of Planetshakers entitled “Nothing Is Impossible” really inspires me in my Christian walk especially during the time that I went into the crisis of my life where things seems to be out of my control. Then when I heard this song, my spirit was uplifted and gave me hope that if I only trust God…nothing will be impossible to Him even though in man’s eyes it is already impossible. From that point, I was able to over come the crisis of my life and up to this point of time, I am surviving my christian faith and living it with the help of God Almighty.

  • Saved by Grace” by Israel Houghton strongly reinforces that we are sinners saved by grace and i will always forever be grateful for being saved and the beat it has of being joyful has become a great favorite of mine..” Beautiful Saviour ” always brings me in awe and in utter humility and greatness of our God in saving a sinner like me and all that we can do is worship him with all our mind , heart, soul and whole being, we could never repay the love HE has given to undeserving sinner like me.

  • Saved by Grace by Israel Houghton

    It shows a clear picture of Grace. That we can’t do anything without God’s grace. All our sins are already forgiven and the chains of bondage is already broken. We are free! And that saving grace is not a one time thing but it is an every day thing that we experience. It is new every morning and we can experience victorious life by God’s Grace.

  • I Lift Up My Hands – Israel Houghton

    >This will be the very first Christian song i ever learned way back in 2009. Then i had several callings already from God, He was sending people/strangers to get to me. I love Him, yes, but i never understood… years I’ve been searching for that perfect love but always end up hurting….
    >This made me realize that the love i was thirsty for…. is God.. no one else.
    my love, my trust, my faith and my relationship with Him is what matters most this time. I never felt peace. Secured. Loved and Cared about….
    > My turning point in life brought me to one Sunday service in Greenhills. it was then the beginning of acceptance and surrender. A great walk with God.
    Going back to the song…
    So funny, that when i signed up for the audition for the iSing (Music Ministry), this was the only christian song i knew… it made me cry to realize that minute of how i was loved and how God was just there waiting for me to find Him,,,
    FINDING LOVE IS FINDING GOD. and that changed everything….
    “For as long as forever you are there for me but i never knew You back then, was lost and now I am found by You Lord… I will never let Go”

    This is my ultimate Love Song to God.

  • The song Nothing is Impossible by planetshakers always reminds me that I can do all things through Christ and nothing is impossible if I believe in Him. Just trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t depend on what you see. Most of the time I ask God what is His plan for me. I feel that there is a dark future waiting and an unknown thing is blocking your site but this song tells me not to give always give your best and God will do the rest.

  • Even Greater by Planetshakers

    Even Greater is a song of declaration of all Christians who will bring impact to the world. This is a song of celebration wherein God’s plan is great to every people in every tribe. This is the time of God’s people to arise, to do the mandate as a catalyst of change. As I sing this song, I declare that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

    We are call for greatness, because of God’s power that is in us. I pray that this will be the battlecry of every Christians.

  • My favorite Planetshakers song is “You Are God” from their Nothing is Impossible album.

    This song made this verse impress to my heart deeper!

    Matthew 6:25 (NLT)
    25“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?
    26Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
    28“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,
    29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.
    30And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
    31“So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’
    32These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
    33Seek the Kingdom of Godd above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
    34“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.


    Where there is sickness, there will be healing
    Where there is bondage, there will be freedom
    Where there is sorrow, there will be laughter
    Where there is darkness, Your light will shine bright

    For the old has passed away
    And this is a brand new day

    You are God, You are God
    You are so glorious, You are so powerful
    You are God, You are God
    You are victorious, You are the One Jesus

    Where there is blindness, there will be vision
    Where there is lacking, there?ll be provision
    Where there is hurting, there will be healing
    Where there is downfall, there will be victory

    We call upon Your Name Lord
    The Name above all names
    We call upon the Name that saves

    He is God, the name above all names, the name who died for me and gave me life. How could I worry about anything when He already gave me His everything!! :’)
    This song leads me back to Jesus and consistently reminds me of the fact that Jesus is both LORD and SAVIOR, there’s nothing to worry about when He’s with you.. Sarap!! :’)

  • planetshakers-like a fire, israel&new breed- He loves us.

    Like a fire that overwhelms my entire life. 20 years of my life full of hatred and anger yet God didn’t give up on me. I feel so happy when out of nowhere God called me. Send me to the Church (where i was now) to stand in his words and give life to those who are lost. help others seek God with burning passion in their heart. this song inspired and reminds me, How God moves in mysterious ways. like a wind that sweep throughout every place. everyday of this life i want to spend, is to bring honor to God. Grab the fire of life that chills to my bones, to help others find salvation with burning passion. to let everybody know How Jesus Loves Us by dying on the cross.

    “He gave himself for us, to rescue us from all wickedness and to make us a pure people who belong to him alone and are eager to do good.” titus 2:14

  • My favorite song by Israel & New Breed is “If not for your Grace”. I love this song because it speaks about how God sustains us with his grace. It is a wonderful reminder for me that it’s all because of God’s grace that I was made a child of God and co-heirs with Christ. 🙂

  • Just saw that my reply to the thread says my favorite son is “Saving Grace ” where it was supposed to be Saved by Grace by Israel Houghton.

    Just clarifying. =)

    Thank you Sir Randell. =)

  • Hi! My favorite Planetshaker song is “nothing is impossible”. It is a great boost up and a source of motivation for me.
    ” I’m not gonna live by what I see
    I’m not gonna live by what I feel
    Deep down I know that You’re here with me” – Indeed, His Grace is sufficient, it has the power to demolish stronghold, alas!nothing is impossible!

  • Israel Houghton – Still Standing

    As a student, there are a lot of things that I need to do accomplish. The pressure was very high, especially I was maintaining a certain GWA. Then came the worst year of my life, 2010, lots of problems arouse and it jived with my academics. That’s when I realized I’ve been so much away from God. I went back to church and Still Standing was the song they played and I remember a tear fell down my face. I promised myself that in everything I do, Ill make sure God’s in it. Because I can soar high and do everything with His help. This song, together with Israel Houghton’s other songs, have inspired me a lot especially in my fourth year aka thesis life. And now, Im very happy to say, Ill graduate this April in UP with honors. I’m still standing because of His grace. Indeed, nothing is impossible with God.

    I’ve been a fan of Israel and the Planetshakers and I reemember tweeting Israel back then to have a concert in the Phil. I’ve joined all the contests for this because I cant affort not to praise and worship with these amazing people. I know it’s too much to ask but I really hope I’ll win in this contest. In my thesis acknowledgments also, I put the lyrics of Still Standing because this song really sums up my fourth year college life. I dont know how I survived college without His guidance, favor, mercy and love.

    “If not for Your mercy, if not for Your love, I most likely would have given up. If not for your favor I never could say I’m still standing.

    For the guidance, the favor, for making me graduate on time and for everything You’ve done and will continue to do for me, thank You. I don’t know how Ill survive this rollercoaster ride without You. I love You Big Dad!”

  • My favorite Planetshakers song is “Deeper.” I love it for its simplicity. The desire to know God more and be more like Jesus is a prayer that many of us believers have uttered for one time or another. More than just singing this song, it’s a prayer for me. I want to know God and be taken deeper, further, and higher than I’ve ever been—and ultimately, to be more like Jesus.

  • -nothing is Impossible. This song reminds me of my years when i was a college student until when I took my board exam. I heard this song on a youth gathering of college students. And during that time i was struggling with my financial needs for my tuition fees and other needs.. when I heard this sing I raised my hands begin to pray and it became my prayer that through GOD nothing is Impossible.and indeed NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE THAT GOD IS ALL I NEED. God helped me finished my studies and he helped me passed the Board Exam.and when every time that listen to this song, I thanked GOD:) Awesome medley Honestly I don’t really know about Israel and new breed except that they sang this song that I downloaded coz I was looking for a medley christian song. and this was the first song the appeared. and I love listening to this song after that.


    Nothing is impossible
    I never thought that Planetshakers sang this song until today. I’ve been singing this song since I became a Christian. At first I just enjoyed the harmony not thinking about the lyrics. It was normal for me to like how the song goes but never understanding the lyrics. Since I been singing this song for quite a while during praise and worship most of the time, God moved me with this song specially in times of trouble and in need. I remember, i was in church and I was emotionally down and physically tired. Too many things happening at that time and i don’t know who can i turn to. Not my family, not my friends or a psychologist can help. I knew God can help, but I felt like I can’t hear what He was trying to tell me. I knew something was missing. I knew God wants to tell me something. This was the song that our praise and worship sang and when I felt the lyrics like coming from God telling me “I am the one who gives you strength, nothing is impossible, I know I can do anything because i believe in You”. My sadness and anxiety turned into Hope. I prayed after this song,and said to God “Lord I ll trust in you because i know I can do anything with your strength”. I felt that this song was intended to me at that time. It was His way of communicating with me, giving me hope and having faith in Him. It was like one of the supernatural moment in my life. It’s hard to explain but i know like most Christian, it was God’s way of showing His greatness and power. That above all things, nothing is impossible with HIM. 🙂

  • Israel Houghton – We Have Overcome

    A simple song that reminds me that no matter how big or small my problems are, I can overcome them because I serve an awesome and BIG God!

    My walk is no bed of roses, but whenever I listen to the song, it reminds me of his message during my 7days fasting, that I should always seek trust him in all things; that he is my refuge, strength and will always protect me; his word is absolute and great rewards comes from following and meditating on it; and he is gives his peace to those who follow him.

    This is also one of the songs I first played at Sunday service as a music ministry volunteer 🙂 Truly an amazing and awesome experience during that time! The spirit was really moving 😀

  • “Surrender”




    these lines made a great impact in my life. He is indeed the only one worthy of all praise.

    surrendering, letting Him be in control of my life, giving up my world for Him to be my world… my life changed completely. ?

  • Israel Houghton – We Have Overcome

    This song made a great impact for me. It inspires me a lot, not just in terms of spiritual realm but in my life as a whole.

    As a son of God, I am born to overcome the world, not to be overcomed by the world! I am born to be a victor, not to be a victim! And I am born to prevail, not to be frail! Besides, I can connect this song with my life verse: ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me….’ (Philippians 4:13)

    I’ve been a Christian for almost two years already, and I can say that my life was a crap. In fact, I was a slave of sin for years. The result: I tend to suffer, to weep, to fail.

    But you know, when I received Jesus with all of my heart, there was a revelation to me saying, ‘Son, you’re not destined for that one. You’re destined for something bigger, something better, something greater.. “for I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” ‘

    And I know each one of us have our own hardships, trials and challenges in life. But I believe, through the grace of God, and through our faith, we can do anything, we can overcome everything. ‘Cause we’re on the winning side! And thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

    God bless everyone. 🙂

  • My favorite song of planetshakers is “Hope of all hearts”.

    When i heard? this song.I’m even more in connection with JESUS. :”>this song. really inspires me!I’ll share stories of mine! 🙂
    when I fell in love I asked God to tell me what to do about this relationship. I did not hear an answer from God so I decided to stay away from christianity I was ashamed to face my friends, so I started going to a new church where no one would believe I was a Christian before.It was then that I cried out to the Lord in my distress. Listening to Christian music became a solace for my lonely heart. I cried out to God in His capacity as Father. One song that really ministered to me was by Planetshakers called “Nothing is impossible”. And yes, with God all things are possible. Experiencing a Christ Like living is just an awesoooome experience I’ve ever done. Song defines us how God would help us even we are out of his hands, he is still reaching our arms and tell us” He will never leave us”. So what I’ve learned, just delight ourselves unto the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Therefore nothing is impossible! 🙂
    All Glory goes to God alone! \m/ #outstretched hands


    So no matter what the cost
    I will go for You
    No matter what it takes, I’m Yours
    Because You paid the price at Calvary
    I give You my whole life, I’m Yours

    – There’s just no reason for you not to give your life to Jesus. Our whole life means
    nothing if not for Him who gave Himself first for us.
    – Only by the grace of God that we will be able to understand this.

    God bless everyone!

  • Deeper by Planetshakers

    Taking a board exam is no easy feat. But in April 18 – 20, I would be doing so. I started reviewing for this exam last February. As the date of the exam comes nearer, I’m feeling more and more afraid. Everyday, I have to deal with this fear that I may fail the exam. But at the same time I’m also afraid of passing the exam because of the pride it may give me. I’m afraid that I would think that its because of me that I passed. Everyday, I would think if I fail, my family would be disappointed as well as my friends. I’m afraid that if I fail, people would pity me or say that I am not good enough. I’m not only tired of studying but emotionally and spiritually, I’m feeling tired as well. I asked God what would happen to me.

    One time while studying, I happen to listen to the song Deeper by Planetshakers. I felt like God used that song to impress to me something. It felt like He’s telling me, “You know what, Marian, its not really about passing or failing. Its not about your pride. Its not really about what people are going to say or think. At the end of the day, what’s important is you knowing Me.”

    Right then I realized that yes, its not really about what’s going to happen. I should trust God and believe His promises that He holds my future. What is important is that thru my journey to my board exam, I became closer to Him. What’s important is me realizing that everyday, I need His Word to get thru. What’s important is seeing His love for me thru the people who show their support by praying and even fasting for my exam. What matters the most is really knowing Him more. What is valuable is knowing Him more in every step of the way. I was reminded that my purpose is to know Him more and deeper everyday. Because at the end, I know, it doesn’t matter to God if I’m an engineer or not. I was also reminded that first and foremost, I should dedicate this to Him and do my best and depend on His limitless grace.
