Jesus Sustains in the Depths 2

Depths 2
Somehow Jesus You have sustained me here in the depths of the sea. My lungs are no longer desperately crying for oxygen, my brain is focused on You. You know where the Treasure is, and You are leading me there. What is the Treasure? It’s why I have chosen to undertake this journey.  The treasure is discovering what is in the heart of the Creator. What plans? What thoughts? What strategy, proposals, ways has He designed for my life? for the world?

As we swim farther down, the pressure begins to build in my lungs and my head. It builds to a crushing intensity; can I survive it? “Jesus!” I cry out! “Help me.” I begin turning in circles. Where are You Lord? Nowhere? “Jesus, you promised in Your Word You would never leave me, never fail me!”

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you;
He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

As this thought crosses my brain, it leaves a trail of light behind. His Word is true. He is not a man that he should lie nor the son of man that He should change His mind. I do not see you with my eyes, Jesus, but I know You are nearby.

Then I hear my Lord speak, “Mary, in life you will face many pressures, and some will seem so painful that you could fear they would kill you; or the pressure may be so severe as to challenge your very faith. What You have chosen now (to trust My Word) will sustain you through any intimidation that tries to lead you to give up. Trust in Me and I will always navigate you through the arm-twisting harassment, and ease your torment.”

With these words the pressure relented and my body began sinking again as  the muscles relaxed. Jesus, You are a tough trainer like a sergeant in the military training troops for war. There is a greater battle coming, Jesus. Thank You for being tough!

Have you met General Jesus? Remember to trust in Him and not struggle against the goads as was the case with Saul:

Acts 9:4-6 (NKJV)
4 Then he fell to the ground, and
heard a voice saying to him,
“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”
Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus,
whom you are persecuting.
It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”

Trusting in God and in His Word is the vehicle that conquers any situation!
