Day 137: Pulled Into The Deep Waters (May 17)

Did you know God wants to draw you out into deep waters?  Did you know He does this so we can learn how to rely on Him as our only hope?

The longer I walk in full surrender with the Father, the deeper He takes me.  I know what it is to walk out situations that appear impossible.  To know that my only solution is to have God divinely intervene.  To truly know and believe that God is my only Hope.

This is the life I now lead.  Lately, I’ve encountered several life challenges where I have had no other recourse, but to say, “God, You are the only way out of this.  I can’t make anything happen, but You can and if You don’t I have no way out.”

Are you willing to live this way too?

Today is an invitation.  God is calling you out into the waters.  The deep, deep waters.  Past where your feet can touch and into the depths of the ocean where there is no land in sight.  Will you go?

So often we love to talk about how God delivers us and provides for us, etc.  But if our life is void of any risk, ever, how will we truly know we believe that?

I’m not really talking about intentionally walking out, but I am talking about letting the God of adventure call you out into the depths.  When’s the last time you went on an adventure with God?

How about today?  Why not now?

If you are willing, ask God to lead you into a new adventure.  Ask Him to give you new levels of courage and bravery.  Are you willing?

God, I am willing to go on an adventure with You.  I don’t want to live out the status quo and die never having tried new things or experienced the impossible.  My walk with You is an unending adventure.  Thank You.  Remove all fear from my life.  Give me courage to stand and boldness to go where You send me.  Thank You for always keeping me safe in adventure.  In Jesus name, amen.

When you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  For I am the Lord, Your God, the Holy One of Israel, Your Savior.  Isaiah 43:2-3a

“Lord, if it’s You,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to You on the water.”  “Come,” He said.

But now, Lord, what do I look for?  My hope is in You.  Psalm 39:7

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him. 2 Corinthians 2:14
