Jesus stands at the entrance to your heart today. He has been patiently waiting…knocking softly but persistently every time panic has overwhelmed you this past few weeks. His voice is calm and reassuring on the other side of that door…like a light shining forth filled with truth, hope and love. But the decision must be yours and yours alone, for the door has only one latch and it’s on your side of the door. But if you do decide to open that door today, rest assured that all you’ll need to do is crack the door…for then, all of heaven will pull it open.
“Here am I.” It’s a well used statement made by many great people of the Bible when called by God. In Genesis 31:11 when God summoned Jacob, he answered, “Here am I.” and so did Abraham in Genesis 22:1. In I Samuel 3:4 the young Samuel answered God’s voice with, “Here am I.” And when Isaiah was being commissioned, he also replied to God’s call with, “Here am I.” There’s so much meaning within those three little words. It says, “It doesn’t matter what You have for me to do, great or menial, I’m happy to serve You Lord.” It also says, ” I desire to do Your Will Lord, not what I want.” Three little words of submission that force us to set aside ourselves, pick up our Cross, and follow Him.
