The Heart of “Never Fail”

Ashton



“Never Fail” is our worship pastor, James Stockstill’s personal testimony. He gave his heart to God at the age of 5, grew up in a pastor’s home and has been a part of church his whole life. Because he hadn’t known life apart from Christ, he doubted the validity of his own testimony. He says, “I remember going through a season where I began to discount my own testimony. You hear testimonies of people where God saved them from all kinds of debauchery and crazy things. Because I hadn’t experienced those same things I began to discount my relationship with Christ. The more I’ve grown and matured in my relationship with Him I’ve realized that I do have a testimony. My testimony is of God’s faithfulness. I’ve seen Him in every aspect of my life because I’ve chosen to follow Him wholeheartedly.”

This song is, in essence, a culmination of his life’s story and walk with God. The bridge of the song says, “I’ve seen it all my life, your goodness, goodness. I can’t outrun your love, it’s chasing me down.” That’s what James has experienced with God, and it’s something we can all relate to as we discover aspects of who God is.

James shares, “I was reading in 2 Timothy 2:13, and this has become one of my favorite scriptures: ‘Even if we are faithless, He remains faithful. For He cannot deny who He is.’ I think that’s such an incredible thought- that God is who He is, He can’t deny it, and He will always be that. He’s always for us. He’s always with us. If we hold on to Him, we won’t be shaken. I hope this song encourages everyone to believe and remember that God is for us, and He never fails.”

“Never Fail” Lyrics

Verse 1

You can’t deny who you are

Forever faithful and true

Your loving-kindness unfailing

Remaining through every storm

Verse 2

You can’t deny who you are

Forever faithful and true

Your promises are unchanging

Standing strong through the ages, never ending

Chorus

Our God is for us

He will never fail /

Our hope is in his name

He will never fail /

We we will not be shaken

He will never fail /

Bridge

I’ve seen it all my life your goodness, goodness

I can’t outrun your love it’s chasing me down
