(+Lyrics +meaning +translation) Music Review- Wade in the water by TBN UK- The Spirituals Version

TBN is an acronym from the “Trinity Broadcasting Network.” It is a popular international Christian broadcast television.

What is the song Wade in the water by TBN UK all about?

To wade in the water means to walk slowly, sluggishly in the water. It is the inability to walk briskly because of one or more factors.

Troubled water in the context of this song means a difficult situation. 

God is gonna trouble the water may mean God is going to cause difficulty for those trying to make things difficult for you. In essence, if you wade in the water, God is gonna trouble the water. That means, he is gonna upset the water so that your enemies will stumble while you pass freely just like the case of the Egyptians and the Israelites in the Red Sea

This song is a reference to the Bible passage in Exodus 5 vs 1 which says “And afterward, Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.”

It is also a reference to the Bible passage in Exodus 9 vs 1 which says “Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.”

This song is assuring believers to hold on to their faith and boldly challenge any difficult situation in their lives without fear, because God is going to move in their midst, and set them free from any captivity.
