William Mcdowell – I Won't Go Back lyrics

[Intro:]
I've been changed
Healed
Freed
Delivered

I've found joy
Peace
Grace
And favor

[Verse 1:]
I've been changed (I've been changed)
In the presence of the lord, I've been
(Healed)
Freed (freed)
Delivered (delivered)

In your presence lord
(I've found joy
Peace)
Grace (grace)
And favor (and favor)

And right now (right now is the moment)
Today (today is the day)
I've been changed (I've been changed)
I've been changed (I've been changed)
And I have waited (I have waited for this moment to come)
(And I won't let it pass me by...)

[Chorus:]
So we say
I won't go back, can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Say I won't
I won't go back, I can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me

[Verse 2:]
(All my shame
Guilt
Sins)
They've been forgiven (forgiven)

No more chains
Fear
My past (my past) is over (is over)

Say right now (right now is the moment)
Today (today is the day)
I've been changed (I've been changed)
Come on someone declare that, I've been changed (I've been changed)
And I have waited (I have waited for this moment)
This moment right here I have waited all my life (to come)
(And I won't let it pass me by...)

[Chorus:]
So we say
I won't go back, can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Would you lift up your voices as loud as you can and say?
I won't go back, I can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Come on, somebody, lift your voice and declare it and say
I won't go back, I can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me
Somebody say... I won't go back, say
I won't go back, I can't go back, to the way it used to be
Before your presence came and changed me

    The scripture decrees that if any man be in christ he is a new creature. God has made me new and I won't go back to doing the things I use to do, saying the things I use to say, or going the places I use to go. Now with god in my life I am royalty. He makes me feel special everyday. Who would want to leave god's presence when god can make you feel that great?!?!?

    My meaning of I won't go back derives from everything that I have asked god to deliver me and my marriage from. God has delivered me and my marriage. And the enemy has tried to make me forget all that I have prayed and cried through by sending distractions that could cause me to go through worse than I already have. Between the rich church service yesterday as our pastor teached and preached about the personality of god and the choir singing balm in gilead and the deliverance that I thought would never happen manifest. I won't go back!

    I won't go back is a self explanatory song to those who understand the title. But to those who don't, I won't go back means you won't return to the way things were. Even though you thought that things were good and/or great, they will never be as great, exciting and fulfilling as when you feel the prescence of the almighty. The feeling of him near you is more than anything can make you feel and more than words can describe. And the feeling of you embracing you and you believing that he holds everything that you will ever need and want is something that you will never ever turn your back on. That's what this song means (for me).

    This song speaks the sentiments of my heart. I've been through much, and after going back and forth and realizing that god is the only one I can live for, I know without a doubt he has changed me. I can't go back, and I won't go back! His presence is eminent in my life! I love god so much. My past is over, and I'm walking in my destiny!

    Having done everything, stand. Stand firm when the gates of hell try to push against his church, and work against god's child. Fix your eyes upon the author and finisher of your faith, he who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it. But you've got to make a commitment to stand and look up to god, and not backwards, not around your circumstances. God has given us everything we need for life and godliness, so no sliding back. Stand!
