Over the last few days, especially, I have felt a deeper invitation from the Lord. An invitation to come where few will go. To the deep.
Deep calls to deep in the roar of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and breakers have swept over me. Psalm 42:7
The deep places of God cry out to our deep places and likewise, the depths within us cry out for His depths. It’s a beautiful exchange.
This time of isolation is an invitation to discover, or rediscover, a deeper walk with Abba. So often, in the busyness of our days we can begin to have a more surface relationship with Him. Or some of us didn’t yet realize that we could have something deeper. Now is the time.
This could be the fruit of all of this craziness that we are enduring. A deeper exchange with God.
This devotional will be short because, it too is an invitation. This devotional is an invitation to go away to your prayer closet and really begin to press in to the Deep. Ask God to draw you to a deeper place within Him. Don’t be afraid. You simply need to surrender to Him. He will lead you, and you can rest assured that He won’t lead you where He won’t go. There are parts of God that few will ever know, this side of heaven, because they are not like anything you can know on this earth. I’ve seen things. I’ve heard things and felt things, and sometimes I can’t explain them, but isn’t that the beauty of it all?! My God is mysterious and so infinite that I can’t reach the fullness of Him, but I will never stop trying. Never.
Prayer Moment: If you are willing, then pray this prayer. God, I long to reach deeper into You. I want to know You more. My body aches with the desire to know more and more of You. As the verse says, “As the deer pants for the water, so my soul longs after You.” I am longing for You in ways I can’t express with words. Only You can fulfill my longing. I surrender to whatever You want to show me today. Take me as deep as I can go. You know my heart, I want to know Yours better. Come and take me away with You. I am surrendered. I’m all in. In Jesus name, Amen.
For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. 2 Chronicles 16:9a
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? Isaiah 43:18-19a
