Blessing Offor and Believe

Throughout the last year, Blessing Offor has become a well-known artist to our listening family here at KAMB. With great hits like “Brighter Days” and “The Goodness”, Blessing Offor has become a joyful voice of praise and hope. As you read about and listen to his latest release, we hope that you will be encouraged and reminded of what it means to Believe.

Blessing Offor

Blessing Offor first came to America as a half-blind, six-year-old immigrant from Nigeria. His parents had lovingly sent him with his uncle hoping that he would receive better medical treatment here. Ironically, it was only a few years later when a water gun accident left him blind in his right eye, as well. Yet, despite his total blindness, Blessing Offor was not dissuaded from pursuing his interests. According to Capitol Christian Music Group, he views his blindness as a gift of heightened attunement to the world around him. In addition to this heightened sense, Blessing Offor “also believes his Nigerian blood and immigrant mentality push him to work harder than any of his peers.”

It is with this sharp determination that Blessing Offor has successfully pursued music. He began playing piano at 9 years old and his talents unfolded from there. As an adult, he traveled to music hubs like New York City and Nashville as he further developed his skills and sound. Eventually, Blessing Offor connected with Chris Tomlin and was the second artist to join his Bowyer and Bow imprint. This partnership further provided opportunities for Blessing Offor to exercise his skills as a singer and songwriter. The latest proof of his amazing and joyful talent being his new song Believe.

Believe

In Believe, Blessing Offor leads listeners through a series of questions that often come with belief. To believe in someone or something involves risk and trusting God can feel like the greatest risk of all. To say we believe God means trusting that His will is better than ours, every time. Rather than shying away from the discomfort that can come with such trust, Blessing Offor leans into it. He turns the questions to God and asks us to sit in that uncomfortable space with him and our Creator. Knowing that it can be easy to stop believing in God’s goodness when it doesn’t match our plans, Blessing challenges us to confront our doubts. Near the end of Believe, he asks, “Do I want you or what you can do for me?… Do I love you or what you can do for me?”

Trusting God is not dependent upon our feelings. We are called to trust Him no matter our circumstances, and Blessing Offor brings us back to this crucial point. He starts with the questions, but he ends with God. Blessing Offor reminds us of what it means to Believe, and he ends by encouraging us to do it.

“So the concept of Believe is this internal, wrestling dialogue almost negotiating because I think we all kinda have these misconceptions of God as, like, this fairy genie that, like, gives us whatever we want and at the end of the day you realize that just ’cause you have faith doesn’t mean life is magic or perfect.”

Lyrics

So you catch me when I fall, right?
And you hear me when I call cryin'?
And you fix me when I'm broke, right?
And that's all I need to know
So the storm is gonna break right?
And the sun is gonna start shining
And everything is gonna go right
And that's all I need to know
But what if you know something I don't?
What if you will something I won't?
If you don't give me what I want
But you give me what I need
Is that enough to
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love?
Will I still
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love?
So nothing's ever going wrong, right?
And every day I'm gonna be smiling
Turned my water into good wine
And let the good times roll
But what if you know something I don't?
What if you will something I won't?
If you don't give me what I want
But you give me what I need
Is that enough to
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love?
Will I still
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love?
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love
Will I still
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love?
Do I want you? Do I want you?
Do I want you or what you can do for me?
Do I love you? Do I love you?
Do I love you or what you can do for me?
Sometimes I don't know
But all I wanna do is...
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love (yes, I do)
Believe, believe, believe (all I wanna do), believe in your love (all I wanna do is believe)
Believe, believe, believe (yes, I do), believe in your love (let me believe)
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love
(Believe in your love)
Believe, believe, believe (oh, let me believe), believe in your love (yes, I believe)
Believe, believe, believe (I believe), believe in your love (I believe, I believe)
Believe (in your love), believe (in your love), believe (in your love), believe in your love (in your love)
Believe, believe, believe, believe in your love

Conclusion

Whether you hear Believe on the radio or through another source, we hope that you will pause and really listen to the lyrics. Sometimes we become so comfortable with our idea of belief that we forget to check whether it matches God’s. As Blessing Offor sings Believe, he addresses the hard things. He asks whether our belief is strong enough to outlive the good feelings when all we can see are valleys. He challenges us to consider what happens when God’s way doesn’t go as we planned. Will we fall back on our own, or will we still trust Him at His Word? Will we walk away from Him, or will we still Believe?
