At the beginning of every month, I am starting a blog based around one specific verse. The verse it is based upon is what I’m having as 16:14 Blogs n’ Brews “monthly verse”.
“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.” Psalm 42:7.
In moments of judgement. In moments of sadness. In moments of regret. In the many moments that we question Gods plan, we begin to wonder, “Why have I been placed in such deep waters? What is your plan Lord?”. Truthfully, we will never know Gods plan and we will never understand why things happen the way they do. But we do know that God doesn’t put us in deep waters to hurt us or to create problems. He puts us in the water to cleanse us of our problems; to rise out of our comfort zones and get rid of our struggles and sins.
We blame the Lord for things that are our fault. We sin, we sin a lot. This world has given the wrong message about forgiveness. People go to the Lord when they are in a deep hole that they dug, crying out to Him to give them a rope and pull them up. Once the Lord pulls them up, they fall right back into the hole. We are supposed to treasure His love and forgiveness, not bury it.
Our Father, Son, and Holy Spirit wants us to be consciously living in His presence. He wants us to reach out to him every minute of everyday.
Let the Lord be your everything. He is the only thing and the only one to love you forever. He is the only one who can pull you out into deep waters to rescue you and cleanse you of your sins. Your faith will become stronger when you trust Him, walk with Him, and live your life pursuing HIS path for you; not your own path for yourself.
This verse is much more powerful than you can put your mind to. Set your focuses directed towards Him. Become satisfied. Reach your hand up to Him and praise Him for His overly amazing plan, path, and life. Don’t step off of the edge into the hole repetitively.
