But unbeknown to the world was a story of Sinach’s encounter with God that led her to write the song.

The Story Behind

In an interview with Simisola Okai on TPi, Sinach shared the story behind “Waymaker.” It started when she entered a new season in her life. The singer felt God leading her to a new level in her ministry. 

However, she felt nervous because she was already comfortable with her present circumstance.

“I felt I was like a fish out of the water because I was going to a kind of area where I haven’t been before,” she recalled. “And the Lord was pulling me in that area.”

Sinach admitted how it didn’t bring great comfort to her. She didn’t want to move. But amidst her overwhelming circumstance, she chose to latch deeper into the Presence of God. And as she sought the face of God, He spoke a revelation to her.

God highlighted Abram’s story to Sinach, where “He told him to leave his people, his comfort zone.”

“And he took him out to a place where He will show him,” the singer detailed. “He didn’t even explain everything.” But God promised Abram that He would make his name known and make him great.

“All that promises, it was just a promise.. but the Bible said Abram believed God and he left his comfort zone,” Sinach added. “That’s when the Lord gave me the song. He said, ‘Oh see, I’m your Waymaker.’”
