DEEP CALLS UNTO DEEP

Sep 20, 2023

Psalms 42:7 Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me.

Psalms 130:1 Out of the depths I have cried to You, O LORD.

As the water falls, its depth has a force that produces sound. There is a depth from which our prayers and seeking must flow. The waves of God’s presence and glory are not provoked from a shallow place but a deep one within your soul, by that distinct noise, cry or yearning.

We provoke the depth in God from the depth within us; shallow cries cannot touch the deep we are longing for.

I pray that the Holy Spirit will help us so that our prayers, seeking and love will come from a deeper dimension within our souls that we have not experienced before.

Jeremiah 29:13 And you will seek Me and find [Me,] when you search for Me with all your heart.

I would like to ask you brothers and sisters; Is your heart in what you are seeking or your attention is on a set program that will make you appear spiritual? What is your passion? What is your drive? Do you love Jesus?

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares [us,] and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

The time has come for us to get rid of every weight, excess, and sin that easily ensnares us. This is not the time to play or toy around with things, lifestyles, behaviours and relationships that you know are hindrances to what you want to see.

Isaiah 29:13 Therefore the Lord said:  ” Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men.

God is not impressed with words; He needs your heart. If we mean what we say, then our lives must reflect God. Hypocrisy must leave our prayers, worship and all we do.

Fake will not win over this generation nor will it change our nation or families. Let us ask the Lord to strip us of every pretence, and lay naked before Him so that He may dress us to reveal Jesus to our generation.

If we want to see and experience the deep in God, there has got to be a cry from a deeper place that we have never experienced before, irrespective of our positions.

Genesis 3:7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they [were] naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

Adam tried to dress himself with fig leaves that Jesus cursed when He was on earth (Matthew 21:19). He tried to cover his nakedness but no one can lie to God. His covering was only a show.

God stripped him of the fake covering and dressed him with the blood of an animal (Genesis 3:21). Therefore, don’t try to fake it, fall on your knees and tell Him; “Jesus I have fallen, I need help”. Don’t try to look good before people while you are dying inside.

We have to be real in our services and personal moments with God If we want to experience His depth and see Him.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
