Read (from the New Living Translation)

Psalm 107: 13-16

13“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.

14 He led them from the darkness and deepest gloom;
he snapped their chains.

15 Let them praise the Lord for his great love
and for the wonderful things he has done for them.

16 For he broke down their prison gates of bronze;
he cut apart their bars of iron.

Go Deep

When everything goes wrong, it’s easy to forget what God can do… and what He IS DOING every day for people like Zach Williams and his song “Chain Breaker.”

What a great testimony that so many men need to hear today. We need more men willing to stop in their tracks and remember to lead their family in the Lord.

I like to say I was in Texas packing my truck to go see a cowboy in New Mexico the day I met God. You never know when, where, or how He will stop you in your tracks, which is what gives me hope that He can save anyone, anytime, anywhere, and anyhow He wants! I know that if He turned my life around, He can reach anyone–including the ones I love who seem too far gone to ever be saved!! Maybe that is why I absolutely love and connect with your song Chain Breaker, because I experienced being set… Read more »

I LOVED this song the first time I heard it! I turn my radio up as loud as I can stand it and sing as loud as I can stand to hear me every time it comes on. It’s such a powerful song. The message applies to everything anyone can be going through. Thanks for writing and sharing it. Thanks for answering the call.

This year my wife told me she no longer loved me and wanted a divorce & i found out i have had Lupus for probably for some year untreated. I have been crying out to God to help mend my marriage but 3 weeks ago Friday i was served with divorce papers. I have come to the realization that even bad things that happen is Gods will and he has a plan i can’t see. I still pray that when the divorce is final and she is all by herself she will realize how much i truly love her and… Read more »

I’m there with you, brother. My wife divorced me about a year ago and I was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney disease along with my type 1 diabetes. I’m doing my best to serve the Lord with everything that I am, but it can sometimes be difficult as my ex-wife and I go to the same church and it’s a very small church. My prayers are with you

Great testimony! I myself am in the mist of running back to God, but being a single parent I feel very alone in this. I know God is with me I’m just doing the best I can to come back to him. I do feel like I have a long ways to go and it would just be nice to have someone with me running with me. This is where God has me and even though I’m so very ashamed of my past I know God still wants me. Thank you for sharing your struggles and how God moved in… Read more »

I know this is one of the most powerful songs in Christian radio today and it’s easy to see why. When people write from the heart and a place of suffering and pain God has a way of taking control and making it work for Him. I’ve never suffered from addiction but I ran from God for a lot of years because I was afraid of being shunned by people. His song helps me remember that it’s Him we serve and that no matter what humans say He is in control and loves us unconditionally.

I like this testimony because God stopped me in my tracks and took me out of the chains of drugs and alcohol addiction. The thanks for sharing this with us.

Larry Crenshaw

Here’s another example of how and why I think Christian music seems so much more authentic sounding these days than a lot of what used to play on the radio in the past. (to me it used to come off sounding much more generic) But now like here, I see it coming more from real life experiences like his. Which I believe is God’s way of teaching us things by real life examples – through real people. Thank you Zach for a great testimony.

Betty

I so agree with you Larry! The Christian music today really send a a message, I am so thankful for all of the artists and the radio stations that play their music.

We live in an age where the chains are so strong. But He will make them fall and bring new life in seconds, when we wake up and see the truth of our bondage and turn to Him. God is mightier than all the forces of evil at work. We have to keep our eyes on Him.

Great word for the day. So glad that God got ahold of your life and saved your marriage and family. Wonderful testimony.

I’m trying to find my way home again. This reminds me that I can always find it, because God has already broken the chains that hold me to the things that pulled me away from Him.

Thank you for your powerfull testimony. Isn’t it cool how He let you find Him all the way in Spain! HE is our loving Father who pursues us no matter where we are.

Love the message. I love to hear stories of redemption like that. When God turns us back around to HIm. This is a great message of hope for anyone facing addiction.

Taelor Barnette

That’s wonderful! Reading that verse at the top, I never thought of our sins, fears, etc. as prison bars. That really is a perfect description to say the Lord has cut apart the bars of iron. It’s like he’s offering us his freedom with a way out, and all we have to do is step through the broken bars. Awesome!

The struggles are only temporary, He has a bigger plan for us. I will continue to follow Him even if times get tough. Thank yall so much for sharing your testimony.
