Could You Be Messiah

It was the year 1991, I was walking along the school grounds and feeling sad. I felt lonely and that no one really cared for me. But there was a song that kept playing in head- it was Gary Valenciano’s Could You Be Messiah?

The lyrics felt like it was a prayer straight from my heart. It was asking God if He was really there and if He really cared for me? As a 14 year old teenager, it was a very emotional time for me and sensing that God was there for me meant a lot. Indeed, I was deeply touched by His unwavering love for me.

Fast forward to year 2018, yesterday while I was listening to the preaching, the song was played and we were asked to reflect on our lives and if Jesus really is our messiah. I listened intently and read the lyrics as it was flashed on the screen. My memories of 1991 flashed back and allowed me to see – that it doesn’t matter if we are a new Christian or a long time one. Our need for a messiah is the same. I had an overwhelming sense of His presence and I just wanted to be there with the Lord. I didn’t want the moment to end.

I am grateful that He has always been there. Truly, he is my precious one. He is my messiah.

Is He yours too?

“Now I’ve been looking for someone like You
And I’m so tired, I’m tired
I’ve read every book and I’ve sang every song

My mind maybe right but my heart feels so wrong
Tell me how much further can my life go along
Which way do the roads lead where do I belong…

Are You forgiver
Of my most unknown secrets
Provider of all that I need

Could You be brother
The one who knows better
Would You now stand in the lead

When all this is over all the thunder and lightning
In the daylight just what will I see
The answers to my questions to all of my questions

Could You be Messiah to me”
