I love these lines in Phil Wickham’s Safe song:
Did you know that the voice that brings the dead to life
Is the very same voice that calls you to rise
So hear Him now He’s calling you home
You will never be alone
The thought that God’s voice, which was so powerful that it brought forth life, is the same voice He shares in love with His children…you and me…is just incredible. That’s why we shouldn’t take our conversations (our worship, prayers, devotions) so lightly. And that’s also why we should take our response seriously. For Him to place a special mission on our hearts for His sake is an important thing, something I choose not to ignore.
And the best part is that despite any anxiety or fear, just as Wickham explains, we will be safe in His arms. And that makes the step of obedience easier to fulfill. Praise the Lord oh my soul.
