A Simple, Powerful Song – “I Am Here!”

There is a bird whose song I love to hear.  It is not a fancy song…there only three notes.

Yet, when this sparrow sings its simple tune, this melody fills the air, resonating throughout the forest!

Only three notes…

Yet, when I hear them, there is a promise of God that resonates in my heart…

A promise of only three words that ring with a clarity so simple there is no way that their profound meaning can be missed!

A promise spoken by God above again and again throughout the pages of His Word!

A promise that will not fail, for the One who cannot lie will be faithful to fulfill every promise that He had given.

A promise so sweet that it soothes an anxious mind and quiets a troubled heart…

A promise that turns my eyes upward and fills my heart with songs of praise…

A promise that uplifts my soul to remember that He who has called me by His own name…who has ordered my steps…WILL be faithful to provide for every need that I encounter along this way…

A promise that is so precious it often brings tears to my eyes as its truth pierces through the storms that are raging about me…

A promise that anchors my mind and gives me courage to take the next steps…

A promise that brings a joy undeniable as I reflect on the depths of God’s love for me.

Such a simple promise…

Only three words…

Spoken by God above to His creation below…

“I am here!”

I am here!  In every dark valley…

I am here!  In the storm…

I am here!  In the everyday activities…

I am here!  In the quiet…

I am here!  In the lion’s den…

I am here!  In the fiery furnace…

I am here!  When others forsake…

I am here!  When you don’t know the way to go…

I am here!  When the task I have set before you seems impossible…

I am here!  Always!  So be strong and courageous.

I am here!  Wherever you go!  So do not be afraid.  Do not be discouraged. (Joshua 1:9)

I am here! I will strengthen you.  I will help you.  I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Is. 41:10)

I am here!  When you stumble, you will not be hurled headlong, for I will hold you up with my hand. (Ps. 37:24)

I am here!  Do not fear for I have redeemed you…I have called you by name…You are mine! (Is. 43:1)

Three simple, yet powerful words spoken by God above to you and to me this day…

“I am here!”

I am here
