“All throughout Scripture you will find references to Gods unfailing love,” says Laura Toggs of Hillsong Young & Free. “Within the reality of our earthly relationships, we can find ourselves with broken friendships, dysfunctional families, heartbreak and disappointments. But the beauty of a relationship with Jesus, is that we can take Him at His word and trust in a love that does not, cannot, and will not fail us. ‘Love Won’t Let Me Down’ inspires me to rejoice in the reality of what I am declaring…and I love that singing out a promise such as this unleashes praise from our hearts. So good!”
