I love Hillsong. They sing so many great songs and they usually are worship songs. Today’s song is one of theirs called Oceans. Listen to the words and let them wash over you.
Have you ever noticed that God doesn’t let you stay in one place for a long time? Whether in the valley or the mountain top you aren’t there forever. As the song says, “You call me out upon the waters, the great unknown where feet may fail.”
I’ve been in this place several times lately, the great unknown. We have just recently moved to a new place, The Great Unknown. I know God is not in a place, but what we left was wonderful, and comfortable. We knew where everything was located. We had doctors we liked (very important the older you get), a church family that was loving, and friends. God has put us here now, “where feet may fail”. We have started all over again.
But just like in the past, God is so faithful. Like the song says “your grace abounds in deepest waters.”This is exactly what we have experienced.
In deep waters you aren’t able to put your feet down and take a break. You must keep swimming. The same is true in life when difficult times show up. It seems you can’t get away from the constant pressure.You, however, continue “swimming” toward safety. God has not left us or you in the past and he won’t start now.
He has provided us with a nicer home, better doctors, and a wonderful church home. Now we are resting in His embrace because we are His and He is ours!
Are you in “deepest waters right now? Call on the name of Jesus.
He is just a whisper away!
He wants to bend down and hear your earnest plea. Let Him make your faith strong.
Take your step out on the water.
