Deep Calls unto Deep

I have always wanted to bring meaning to "deep calls unto deep"...David in Psalms 42 in a low mood wrote;
 

"6 My soul is downcast within me;
therefore I will remember you
from the land of the Jordan,
the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.
7 Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me."

My daily devotion broke light.......

“They saw the works of the Lord, His wonderful deeds in the deep”

(Psalm 107:24, NIV)


TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Osteen

 
The scripture says is Psalm 107:23, “They that go down to the sea and do business in deep waters, they will see the wonders of God.” Friend, you and I were created to do business in deep waters. In other words, we’re not supposed to have little dreams or little plans. We are supposed to have big dreams. We are supposed to go out into the deep things God has for us. But understand, when you’re out there in the deep waters, you can’t touch the ground. You can’t see the shoreline, and at times, it can get a little rocky. You may not always see how things are going to work out. But, the scripture tells us that deep calls to deep. In other words, God is the one who has called you to the deep waters. He is with you, and He knows there are deep things on the inside of you. When you are in those deep waters, you are not alone. God is with you, and He’s causing those deep things inside of you to come forth.

If you feel like you are out in the deep today, if you feel like you are overwhelmed, remember, you are in the right place and God is with you. You will see His wonderful deeds in the deep, and you will fulfill the destiny He has in store for you.

On the Fourth

This morning as I took a shower, I thought about the story of Lazarus, he was sick and his sisters sent a message to Jesus to come - their hope that He would heal their brother - but Jesus was four days late..... 

 

There is a dream I have had for quite a while now, had hoped to achieve it in the last four years but nothing has come of it....Today I re- raised the "lateness" concern with God and was reminded of 2nd Peter 3:8 , "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." 

 

Four years look like a lifetime to me...but to God, its really not a big deal.....when I apply the later part of that verse.

See, Jesus had healed others before Lazarus, it was a power that was already known....but why did he come even after he was told Lazarus had died - been embalmed - decomposing?! I suggest that Jesus wanted to reveal to us the profound power in God to call dead things to life. And He did, Jesus called Lazarus out of the dead and into life and restore him to his sisters!! 

 

This breathed hope into my four year dead dream....

On arrival at work, I read Psalms 92,...verse 14 stuck out like a sore thumb! ..assured me that my aged dreams will come to fruition and my energies will be up to speed - the key though - righteousness - verse 12.

My cheer : God is able to breathe life into your/my defragmented, decomposing, embalmed, dead dreams and these are able to bear fruit even in your/my "old age"....as long as we/I continually seek to be in right standing with God. 

 

Psalm 92

A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.


1 It is good to praise the LORD
and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.
4 For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD;
I sing for joy at what your hands have done.
5 How great are your works, LORD,
how profound your thoughts!
6 Senseless people do not know,
fools do not understand,
7 that though the wicked spring up like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be destroyed forever.
8 But you, LORD, are forever exalted.
9 For surely your enemies, LORD,
surely your enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered.
10 You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox;
fine oils have been poured on me.
11 My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries;
my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.
12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 planted in the house of the LORD,
they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,

15 proclaiming, “The LORD is upright;
he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

My chains are gone

I listen to this every morning at 6am - my alarm tone. Reminds me every morning what a wonderful gift God gives us each morning we find life....the chance to know His love for us, love expressed through Jesus, who came and set us free from the bondage of sin.

Today - I rejoice that my chains are gone - I have been set free, my God and Saviour has ransomed me - and its great to be alive!
