Jesus In Disguise: Brandon Heath

Why is it always so instinctual for people to run away from problems when life gets tough? Why do many feel as though remaining in the midst of turmoil will lead to further destruction?

Look at it this way, when difficulties faced Christ did He run away? Of course not! He stood, remaining faithful to the word, faithful to His purpose. And we are called to do the same.

Oftentimes, we are given the privilege, yes, I’ll say that again, the privilege of suffering for the sake of Christ. Though we may feel like He is far and not present in our trials, He is closer than you could ever imagine. He’s always beside us, giving us the words to speak and showing us which path to take.

Philippians 1:29

“29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him”

If you ever question the closeness of Christ, take note of songs like Brandon Heath’s single “Jesus in Disguise” off his upcoming album Blue Mountain. Have heart, Christ is right in the midst of our suffering, we just may not recognize Him because He is perhaps in ‘disguise’ from our most apparent consciousness, but very much real with each new day.

Ever get something in your head
It’s nothing you’ve heard, or something you’ve read
Ever had a cut, but you never saw a blade
Brought to your knees, but you never prayed

(Chorus)
Jesus in disguise
Jehovah passing by
The burden of a tear
Hanging in your eye
Jesus in disguise
A scar across the sky
You were looking for a king
You would never recognize
Jesus in disguise

Ever feel like you’ve been somewhere before
You hold the key, you know which door
Speak the word your lips have never known
Because your heart told you so

Chorus

So open my eyes, wide as I can
Blind as I am, blind as I am
So open my eyes as wide as I can
Blind as I am, blind as I am

Jesus in disguise
