Go Deep

"Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;
All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
 The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime,
And in the night His song shall be with me -
A prayer to the God of my life." (Psalms 42:7-8)

Beloved, don't allow people to pull you to the surface when you've resolved to focus on the deep things of God. Don't incorporate shallow things into your lifestyle for the sake of pleasing others when you've decided to "go deep".

In this Psalm, the Bible says, "Deep calls unto deep..." - that's the Lord calling to the grounded places within you; the places where He resides. When you're in trouble, when you're not in trouble; when you feel bad, when you feel good... don't surface; if possible, don't ever surface. Go deep.

Don't breathe the world's air any longer, my friends. Since God is calling, resolve to answer His call; for He is calling to Himself  within you. Turn your back on surficial things, beloved; close your eyes and float out into Abba's arms. Don't listen to the world, but fill your ears with the voice of Christ Jesus.  Answer the Father's call; go deep.


"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
(Romans 12:11b)
