The band, Petra, has a great song, titled "You Are I am". Written by an incredibly talented Bob Hartman, and taken from Exodus 3:14 and John 8:58, it simply states:
"From the top of the mountains to the bottom of the sea; From beginning of time through eternity; From burning bush to Gethsemane; From the Red Sea shores to the Galilee
[Chorus:] You are I Am, You are I Am
Let the heavens rejoice in Your majesty; Let the earth hear Your voice in it's purity; From the fiery furnace to upper room; From the lions' den to the empty tomb
You have always been - You will always be; Yesterday, today, and through eternity; I will always bow my knee; You will never cease to be I Am
From the breath of life to the Living Word; To the broken heart when good news is heard."
In our prayer meeting this past Wednesday, at a time when the world is uncertain, the direction of nations unknown, circumstances of lives and families unsettling to experience and just as disturbing to witness...whatever people need, He is. The hole in the heart of man can filled with many things...they all just absorb into one's life never being enough. The hole needs to be filled with the Rock, upon which a new life in Christ can be built.
As we pray for community engagement, pray for the Good News to touch the broken heart. Pray that the Living Word would breath new life, into hearts living with feelings that life has no meaning, purpose or fulfillment. Pray that this world would hear His voice, in its purity...in truth, for He is true. Pray that they would experience His love; for His is the only One that wins for eternity.
