Lyrics

The dark tried to hide You and steal You away
Death tried to keep You inside of the grave
The enemy fought You, he tried but he lost
You cannot be stopped (You cannot be stopped)

When we cried for freedom, You tore down the walls
The weight of our burdens, You carried it all
Our fears and our failures hang dead on the cross
You cannot be stopped
Mover of mountains, breaker of chains
Jesus has triumphed over the grave
Sing hallelujah, the battle is won
Nothing can stand against our God

We stand on Your victory, we shout out Your praise
Miracle maker, You’re mighty to save
Awesome in power, relentless in love, oh-oh
You cannot be stopped

Mover of mountains, breaker of chains
Jesus has triumphed over the grave
Sing hallelujah, the battle is won
Nothing can stand against our God

There’s nothing that can stop our God
There’s nothing that can stop our God
There’s nothing that can stop our God
There is nothing, there is nothing
There’s nothing that can stop our God
There’s nothing that can stop our God
There’s nothing that can stop our God
There is nothing, oh-oh

Mover of mountains, breaker of chains
Jesus has triumphed over the grave
Sing hallelujah, the battle is won
Nothing can stand against our God
You’re the mover of mountains, the breaker of chains
Jesus has triumphed over the grave
We sing hallelujah, the battle is won
Nothing can stand against our God
Oh, nothing can stand against our God

About This Song

"When we surrender the things in our lives to God we surrender them to Someone who has never seen a problem that is insurmountable. Never seen a mountain that can't be moved. He truly is an unstoppable God" - Laura Story

The Bible tells us in Proverbs 3 to "lean not on our own understanding." This gets me in more trouble than just about anything else. And, the reasons I struggle in this area at times is even more concerning. And I think I'm not alone. When we face, what seems to be, impossibilities in our lives our human default is to become fearful and lean on our own understanding of the circumstances. This causes us to put God in a box and then take ourselves to a false understanding of what He can and can't do. This can leave us feeling anxious, worried and even more afraid. However, when we become inspired and encouraged to step beyond ourselves and trust Him more, He can bring us to a place of confidence. No matter our circumstances. I believe God will use this song to do just that as it becomes a listener favorite. I'm so grateful that Laura Story captures this truth so well - God cannot be stopped!
