Recently my Husband & I went to a Zach Williams concert & also saw an interview he did about his life. Once thing stuck out to me, The Chain breaker produces a change life. Zach talked about how his life was filled with choices that took him away from God, his family, & the dreams he had in his life. He shared how he got into the party life. He lost his scholarship he got for basketball. He started a band and the party life style got more a part of his life than God & his family. Finally when he got to the bottom and was about to loose his marriage & children, God moved on his life. What came next is what touched my heart. 

Zach talked about how God reached out to him. He had never left Zach. God was right there through all those choices he made. When Zach finally surrendered to God’s calling, he walked out on the band he was in and went home a changed man. He wrote these following songs that have changed many lives. 

Chain Breaker – 

If you’ve been walking the same old road for miles and miles

If you’ve been hearing the same old voice tell the same old lies

If you’re trying to feel the same old holes inside

There’s a better life

There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain

He’s a pain taker

If you feel lost

He’s a way maker

If you need freedom or saving

He’s a prison-shaking Savior

If you’ve got chains

He’s a chain breaker

God wants you to have a better life. There is one that wants you to lose everything. But THE Chain Breaker, Jesus Christ, came so you could have life. 

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

He is your pain taker. He took your pain on The Cross. 

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 John 3:8  For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Song of Deliverance –

Hard times and high waters

On the road that I have wandered

Bridges left burning

A lot of dead-end learning

Stone walls, I’ve built up

Trapped by the way I’ve been livin’

I don’t wanna be a prisoner

I don’t wanna be a prisoner

I will sing a song of deliverance

I will lift my hands and drop these chains

Walk out free in Jesus name

I will sing a song of deliverance

Whoa, Hallelujah

Whoa-ho, I am free

Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Ephesians 2:8-9  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Freedom – 

I felt the flames, I heard death knocking

My hands were tied, my feet were bound

Buried alive, covered in ashes

My soul was 6 feet under ground

Then you rolled that stone away

You pulled me from the grave

Praise the Lord I saw the light

And I’ll never be the same

The devil whisper little lies

He tried to steal my victory

But I starred those demons in the eyes

Cause these boots gonna crush the enemy

I got that freedom, freedom in my soul

I got that fire, fire in my bones

I got that resurrection

Got that hallelujah

I got that freedom, freedom in my soul

Got that resurrection

Got that hallelujah

Got that new creation

Got that the blood of Jesus

Got that fire burning

Got that holy spirit

Got that Sunday’s coming and I can’t stop singin’

Freedom, freedom in my soul

I got that fire, fire in my bones

I got that resurrection

Got that hallelujah

I got that freedom, freedom in my soul

This song has the death, burial, & resurrection of Jesus in it. Thank God that because of what Jesus did we can have a changed life. We once were dead and now are alive. We once were lost and now we are found. 

This last one is a song and a prayer for many. For those who have surrendered to Jesus and what He did for us have felt this song deeply. There are time when we fall on our knees and pray this song. 

Wash Clean – 

Father open up my eyes

So I might truly see

Everything you have done for me

Lord I’m tired and I’m torn

My face is on the floor

Break these chains and set me free

Father take away my pride

Just set it all aside

So I might hear what you have to say

Lord I’m tired if all my guilt

I’m tired of all my shame

Break these chains and set me free

Cause I been living a lie that I just couldn’t see

And holding on to things that I just didn’t need

But you took these hands and washed them clean

Oh like a blind man lost in the middle of the night

You came down and you opened my eyes

And I won’t ever be the same

Oh that’s what Jesus

Jesus did for me

Solo over verse

So now I’ve opened up my eyes

And swallowed all my pride

I finally let you lead the way

And I fall down on my knees

I’m just a Brother of your Grace

And I won’t ever be the same

Going to the concerts and listing to Zach’s life story really shows how God can turn a life around, Save a family, and touch many through Zach’s story and songs. The Chain Breaker Jesus Christ has changed my life and so many others. My prayer is as others hear Zach’s story and songs they too will meet The ONLY true Chain Breaker…. JESUS CHRIST! #ChainBreaker

Thanks Zach for sharing your life with us all and for these powerful songs.
