It’s a dangerous business, telling God where you are.
When those words come out of your mouth, you can’t take them back. They have been spoken, heard, and heeded before you will ever get a chance to think about their implications.
One day you are minding your own business. The next day you are on a mountain top with a knife to your son’s throat.
One day you are your homeland with no food. The next day you are on your way to an unknown future in a foreign country.
One day you are taking care of some sheep in the desert. The next day you are on your way to liberate slaves from the clutches of a brutal dictator.
One day you are just a boy working in the Tabernacle. The next day you are speaking prophetic words of judgments upon an entire family.
What will it be for you? Do you dare to utter those fateful words and join the company of the great patriarchs of old? Make no mistake, neither their tasks nor their path was easy.
But their stories have echoed through the ages. Their testimonies continue to inspire and confound us even today.
Three little words could change your life forever. And three little words can change the world.
“Here I am.”
