Look what you've done
How could you fall so far?
You should be ashamed of yourself
So I was ashamed of myself
The lies I believed
They got some roots that run deep
I let 'em take a hold of my life
I let 'em take control of my life
Standing in Your presence, Lord
I can feel You diggin' all the roots up
I feel Ya healin' all my wounds up
All I can say is, "Hallelujah"
Look what You've done, look what You've done in me
You spoke Your truth into the lies I let my heart believe
Look at me now, look how You made me new
The enemy did everything that he could do
Oh, but look what You've done
Suddenly all the shame is gone
I thought I was too broken now I see
You were breaking new ground inside of me
On the cross, in a grave
With the stone rolled away
All my debt, it was paid
Look what You've done
In my heart, in my mind
In my soul, in my life
With my hands lifted high, I'm singing
I absolutely love this song! It has become my personal theme song. When I listen to it, I feel like it was written just for me, as it explains my life and what has happened to me since I found Jesus.
Do you ever remember, as a kid, hearing those words, "Look what you've done! You should be ashamed of yourself!" I'm sure we've all heard them some time or another while growing up. When I heard them, it definitely meant I had done something wrong.
There's quite a few places in the Bible where these words can be heard. When Moses took the people out of Egypt and they got to the Red Sea, which looked as if they had no way of escape. Can't you just hear them screaming at Moses, "Look what you've done!" (Exodus 14:11). When Sarah experienced the hate of Hagar after she gave her to Abraham for the purpose of having a child. She told Abraham that he was to blame for the wrong she was suffering. Can't you just hear her screaming, "Look what you've done!" (Genesis 16:5). When Jesus turned and looked at Peter after he denied knowing Him....3 times. Then Peter remembered (Luke 22:61). Can't you hear him thinking, "Look what I've done!" When Peter was talking to the Israelites about Jesus, reminding them of exactly who it was that they crucified (Acts 2:36). Can't you hear him saying to them, "Look what you've done!"
But in this song, as she comes to a knowledge of the Lord who speaks truth to the shame that she had endured in her life, all she can say is "Look what You've done!" He removed the lies that had taken root in her life. He broke up her unplowed ground (Hosea 4:12), the ground in which these roots were growing. With His wounds, He healed all of her wounds that were causing her pain (1 Peter 2:24). All she can say is, "Hallelujah!"
When we allow what He did for us on the cross, in the grave, with the stone rolled away, to saturate our lives, we then realize that all our debt is paid. This realization takes us to our knees in awesome humility. A humility that lifts us right back up with a power that is totally unreal and cannot be explained. We begin to experience amazing changes in our heart, in our mind, in our soul, and in our life. All we can do is lift up our hands and sing! "Look what You've done!"
Yes, this song is definitely my life. I can do nothing but shout, "Hallelujah!" I can do nothing but lift my hands high and sing! I can do nothing but scream out loud....
"Look what You've done!"
