DAY SEVEN || THE KING IS AMONG US
In many ways, every cry we make to God is for Him to “do it again.”
At Elevation, we spend the beginning of each year seeking what God would want to do in our ministry and lives. We’ve been blessed to see God do amazing things in a short time frame, and we wanted to see Him continue to do what only He could do.
“The King Is Among Us” became a prayer for our entire church, asking Him to bring revival again to our church and the cities we minister in.
The King is among us
And His glory surrounds us.

We were inspired by a passage in Genesis 28, in which Jacob dreams of a staircase reaching down from Heaven to earth. He awakes in Bethel and says, “How awesome is this place! Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”
With this song, we’re not asking God to revive something because He left it; we’re asking Him to awaken us to see how He’s been with us all along. Armed with a fresh awareness of His presence, we have the power to revive the world around us with God’s goodness, glory, and grace.
Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!” But he was also afraid and said, “What an awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven!” - Genesis 28:16-17
Elevation Worship began in 2006, when pastor and songwriter Steven Furtick was just launching Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC, he and his worship team began writing songs and eventually started releasing albums to the general public. His vision was to create a strong, unifying worship culture that made a place for people to connect with God.
