“Blessed Assurance” is one of the all-time favorite Christian Gospel hymns. It depicts the blessings that we receive from God day by day. Also, the anthem is an excellent reminder of how blessed we are. Despite things not happening according to our plans, God still moves in mysterious ways to shower us with love and blessings. With this, be reminded of God’s plan for us through a very heartwarming and overwhelming cover of the hymn by the young talented Portsmouth Gospel Choir.
Fanny Crosby wrote the lyrics of “Blessed Assurance.” It was written back in 1973. Meanwhile, Phoebe Knapp arranged the music of the hymn. Phoebe and Fanny are close friends back then.
Back then, Fanny visited her friend Phoebe. At that time, Phoebe was having a large pipe installed into her organ. The organ was incomplete so Phoebe, using the piano, played the new melody she just composed. Phoebe asked her friend Fanny what she thinks of the tune. Fanny just replied,
“Blessed Assurance:” Jesus is mine.
Then, they started penning the words and lyrics of “Blessed Assurance.”
That very circumstance was the reason for the creation of “Blessed Assurance.” It changed both the lives of Fanny and Phoebe. It can change yours, too.
There are various renditions of “Blessed Assurance.” Perhaps, it’s because of the in-depth message. No doubt, the hymn is being used in different religious gatherings, in church, school, worships, and many more.
Let’s give thanks to God for everything he has done and has been doing for us. Beautiful things are happening of us because of God. We should be grateful.
