A song about God being in charge of both the big and little things in life
Song Preview

From the get-go of the song, Skillet describes the creation as told by the Bible: "You spoke a word and life began". The lyrics are clearly worshipful. With statements of the power of deity like telling "oceans where to start and where to end" that are followed up by statements about how God is in the details. The chorus contains several examples of couplets demonstrating power over the world and power to help individuals.

If you can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
If you can calm the raging sea
You can calm the storm in me

From a being that can still a storm and walk on water — where in each case followers are urged to "be not afraid" — it leads reasonably to the idea that personal storms could also be calmed.

The style of the song is strong, even stadium rock like. By the time the bridge comes around declaring "What do I have to fear?", it sounds easy to believe. Becoming familiar with a God who has power over the elements leads naturally to a confidence that that same being cares about the smallest details in life.
