Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I am the maker of the Heavens
I am the bright and morning star
I am the breath of all Creation
Who always was
And is to come
 
I am the One who walked on water
I am the One who calmed the seas
I am the miracles and wonders
So come and see
And follow me
You will know
 
Chorus:
I am the fount of living water
The risen Son of man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am
 
I am the spirit deep inside you
I am the word upon your heart
I am the One who even knew you
Before your birth
Before you were
 
Chorus:
 
Before the Earth (I am)
The universe (I am)
In every heart (I am)
Oh, where you are (I am)
The Lord of love (I am)
The King of Kings (I am)
The Holy lamb (I am)
Above all things
 
Chorus:
 
Yes, I am almighty God your father
The risen son of man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am

TID-bits

  • Here’s a fun thing to do:   Take a person you love and make a list of all the things you love about them.   Then give them that list.
  • and if you ever wanted to make a list about God, then relax, because Mark Schultz has already done it for you in this song...

----------------------------------------------------

  • If you’ve ever received a love letter, then you get the idea behind this (that) song.
  • A love letter is usually full of the great qualities of the person it’s written to, and how those qualities then make you a better person.
  • This (that) song is full of the qualities of God
  • And those qualities build you up when you realize that He is the healer of the broken, which is what we often are.

----------------------------------------------------

  • I know that you wish that God would just spell out all the answers for us.
  • However, if He did, we’d just end up using Him like an ATM machine.   Going to Him only when we need an “answer withdrawal”
  • Instead, He wants our relationship with Him to be like this (that) song says:   “Come and see, and follow me, and you will know”
  • He wants to be involved with you, and to show you through prayer, and His Word, and the things that happen in your life that He is all the things that are listed in this (that) song:   Healer. Author. Protector.

    Scripture References

    Exodus 3:13-14

    Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”

    God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

    ----------------------------------------------------

    John 1:1-5

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    John 4:14

    but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

    Your Own Experiences

    If you’ve ever experienced an incredible sunrise, this is the song that’s a perfect soundtrack for it.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Talk about a sequence of events in your life where it just seemed like He was the author and perfecter of what was happening.   The sale of a house?   The adoption of a child?   The meeting of someone new?

    ----------------------------------------------------

    One line says that He is the breath of all creation.   If you could pick one word and say “this is what I need God to breathe to life inside of me” what would that word be?
