There You Are or Here I Am

She makes her grand entrance into the room, all eyes turn on her as she relishes in all the attention she is getting. You have seen her….she is the person who loves being the center of attention…she is a “Here I Am” person, not really noticing the needs of others but instead only cares about those people and those things that affect her directly. 

He walks into a room and immediately “are you comfortable?” he asks, “Can I get something for you?” Yes, he is a “There You Are” person….one whose whole existence centers on his love and caring for others; never bringing attention to himself but always remaining. 

Jesus was (and still is) a “There You Are” person….He only wants to care for each one of us, to love us, to see that we are “comfortable” and that our “needs” are taken care of. But, do we allow Him to do that? Do we allow Him to fill those areas of our lives that only He can? Or, do we instead, try to do it all ourselves? 

In Philippians 4:19, Paul tells us…
”But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Jesus Christ.” 

Think about it…its time to allow Jesus to care for our “needs” as only He can….
