Into the Depths 1

Depth 1
 Inspiration by a teaching of Pastor Marie Helene-Moulin, who heads a prayer ministry in France. she says:

“But with the prayer, the Church on earth is an expression of the thoughts of God. And that’s really what we want. And there are arrangements, there are settings, there are ways, there is gold that only can be found in Him. And we have the privilege to be a coworker with Christ. We have the privilege to be part of His work, which means speaking out those plans that are in Him, speaking them out as we are going to do in order for them to be established on earth.

So "speaking out the plans of God" means we must know the plans of God.How can we know the plans of God? Asking this question of myself brought forth this thought: To know God's thoughts and plans, I will have to know God deeply and personally. This desire crying out from my heart led me to the Scriptures~

Proverbs 20:5 says, “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water;
but a man of understanding will draw it out.”

The Message version says, “Knowing what is right is like deep water
in the heart; a wise person draws from the well within.”

Deep deep waters. Jesus calling,  “Come out into the deep.” Proverbs teaching that the counsels of a man’s heart is found in the deep waters. My heart is crying out this morning. Lord I want to go deep into Your heart! I am feeling like I’m just feeding in the shallows. Take me deep O Lord.

I see Jesus out on the boat calling me to come. I swim out and follow him as He dives into the water. I’m no great swimmer and my lungs aren’t large capacity, and as I dive after Jesus, a little anxiety niggles in my thoughts. I must follow Him, but what about air? As my body and mind begin to struggle with these thoughts, Jesus turns and looks into my eyes ~ choose air to breathe and go topside again, or continue down with Him and trust?

My future hangs in the balance. Do I trust Jesus to sustain me through the endeavor to maintain life underwater, and discover the treasure below in the deep? Or do I return to life in the shallows never attaining the full potential God put in me?  Choosing  to trust my King, I embark again into the depths. My lungs try to discourage me crying out with a desperate need to breathe. Jesus is nearby and speaks into my heart:  “Peace I give you. My peace I give unto You.” Somehow His words go straight to my lungs and they release the tension. I am swimming without pain or fear in my heart.

Jesus, You are so amazing! Your almighty power has found me in the deep waters and is easing my way to the treasure laying on the bottom. Life with You is challenging, Lord, but You are always faithful!

Have you embarked on a journey to the depths to find the heart of God?
