God calls us deeper – to abandon our heart to Jesus. To go further and further into his waters of love. Waters that feel like they may overtake us, overwhelm us or overpower us, but still, he calls us there.
I want to go to that depth with him.
I want to see his supernatural power as he prompts me to walk on water.
I want to jump at the chance to walk scary, turbulent distances by faith.
I want to know, the only way to survive is by grabbing hold of his outstretched arm.
This kind of faith-life has been luring me. It has been calling.
And, here – as I plead to go this length – the Lord is faithfully unravelling truth.
Truth that says, “Come, share your heart. To go deeper, you have to let me go deeper.”
If I want to understand the depths of God’s love,
I have to open up the depths of my heart.
If I want to understand the power of his saving love,
I have to offer him the chance to save me.
If I want to see the deep mysteries of God,
I have to let him do deep ministries on me.
It is not about protecting self, it is about dying to self.
This is when we find ourself.
Do you want to go to the depths of love with Jesus?
He stands waiting.
He beckons us through love.
Calls us by grace.
He will share all of who he is, as we share all of who we are.
Enter the water. Enter the depths of his love. Enter into his heart. The one he stands ready to share.
Go deep. Let go of fear, let go of anxiety, let go of frustration, let go of control, let go of shame and grab hold of the heart of God.
What he will reveal to us is not just plain and rehearsed head knowledge of love, but deep and impactful heart knowledge of love.
I want that. Don’t you?
I want that deep unending, unconditional and unbelievable source of love.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.[a] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” (Jer. 29:13-14)
