For weeks Justin Bieber has been expressing some unsettling feelings he has been having, but one worship song puts him in a better place spiritually.

"This song puts my heart and soul at ease," Bieber captioned a screenshot of the Bethel Music song "No Longer Slaves."

The post comes days after Bieber spoke out against the inauthenticity of the Billboard Music Awards where he performed.

"I don't feel good when I'm there nor after. I try to think of it as a celebration but can't help feeling like people are rating and grading my performance," he wrote on Instagram. "I'm getting awarded for the things that I'm doing and not for who I am which is understandable I know it would probably be hard to calculate and award someone's spirit lol. But When I do get these awards the temptation of putting my worth in what I do is so hard to fight!"

Before letting his fans know that "No Longer Slaves" by Jonathan and Melissa Helser of Bethel Music gives him peace, he revealed that the song is in the top three of his iPod playlist. Last year the 22-year-old Canadian pop singer participated in a question-and-answer style interview for Cosmopolitan magazine's September issue called, "21 Things You Didn't Know About."

There, he revealed that after Lil Wayne and Drake, he listened to worship music frequently on his iPod.

"Top three songs on my iPod: 'Too Hollygrove to Go,' 'Hollywood,' 'No Longer Slaves,'" Bieber's response reads in the Cosmopolitan article titled, "Justin Bieber Likes Watching 'Scandal' and 20 Other Things You Never Knew About Him."

Even before revealing that Bethel Music, which consists of worship music artists coming out of the Bethel Church in Redding, California, has earned high placement in his iPod, Bieber has been vocal about his Christian faith. Last year, the R&B singer posted an Instagram of a video with himself, Hillsong NYC Pastor Carl Lentz and Trinity Church pastor Rich Wilkerson singing a worship song, "Awesome God," which was made popular by worship music group Hillsong United from Hillsong Church.

He has also used the social media platform to express his faith, including one Instagram post last May where he quoted Psalms 43.

"Vindicate me, my god, and plead my cause against an unfaithful nation. Rescue me from those who are deceitful and wicked. Psalms 43," Bieber wrote as a caption to him reading Pastor Lentz's book, Occupy All Streets. "I'm not religious nor do i think I have ANYTHING figured out that's why I call out on God to help me through what I can't do on my own."

In the post, Bieber went on to recognize how cool developing his relationship with God has become in his life.

"Developing my relationship with God has been the coolest thing I've experienced, to know that I'm not alone and I don't have to live in fear," the singer wrote. "Never feel like I'm pushing anything on u [sic] but sharing the good news I've felt in my own life."
