Rend Collective is a Northern Irish folk-rock worship band that loves to bring celebration in their praise music. With this new song “Year of Victory,” they are bringing in new light. It is a single spun-off their studio album CHOOSE TO WORSHIP.
According to Christian Beat, the band said of the song, “Like many of you, this last year has been one of losses and pain for us.” They continued, “Loss of time with loved ones, economic loss, unexpected medical diagnoses, and mental health battles all took their toll and honestly we came into the new year feeling a little apprehensive about what it would hold. But the idea of the ‘Year of Jubilee’ in the Bible really captured our imaginations. That yes, this world will have its struggles, but the vision for God’s kingdom is one of freedom, emancipation, debt forgiven and sin atoned! Even though we’ve been through so much, we can still live prophetically the vision of the kingdom of God – which is good news to ALL people. It’s in HIM we can claim our victory!”
That is the sentiment you get from the song. It is one of celebrating all that God has done. Even as struggles continue in all of our lives, the song highlights how through Lord we can have an assurance of victory.
