Going Deeper into Jesus

Romans 11:33-34

Oh the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God.

I was reading this verse today and it struck me that we need to immerse ourselves in the deep ocean of God’s  love and favour towards us. The deeper we go, the nearer we get to His passionate heart for His families.
The image in my mind here was of a  deep sea diver  caught up in the thrill of  discovering something precious which had once  been out of reach –  venturing deeper than he has ever been before in order to find it.
 So what are the consequences of applying this exciting principle to our daily search for the new and precious things Jesus has in store for us ? Here are my thoughts..
  •  We can be certain that when we find ourselves in that deep place, faith will surely replace fear, for the perfect love of Christ casts out fear. ( 1 John 4:18)
  • We will come to understand that Jesus knows the plans He has for us and will reveal them to us. It is when we try to fathom it out ourselves that we discover “God’s paths are untraceable, His ways unfathomable”.
  • We learn to trust and rely on Him even when  we can’t see the way out of the darkness we are in.

Of course, just like the deep sea diver, we cannot live our whole lives below the surface as circumstances dictate that we have to live in the real, world. For those of us who are MASH Mums, we will be dealing with things that could scare us and cause us to lose our peace but I would like to encourage all of us today to find time to go deeper with Jesus. If we listen to  His voice and become women  of faith, not fear,  we will bring healing to our children and all who suffer the trials and torment that Self-Harm brings.

Prayer for Today 

Oh Lord Jesus take us deeper and deeper into you, and reveal to us your kindness and love; your intimate and personal plans for our lives. In this world where our children are suffering, show us the way forward and set them free. Fill us with faith -so that we are not overcome by fear, and power -so that we may be used for your glory. Give us your compassion for all who suffer and help us to comfort them just as you comfort us.

Come Jesus and take us deeper today.

Amen

    So this week I have had to read my own words and encourage myself ! I was just telling myself that when it comes to “Fight of Flight ” I am usually a Fighter but this time I would like to run away please, when that small but powerful voice I have come to know said ” Do neither. Stand still and hold on tight. If you feel your world is spinning out of control, stay at the centre where its safest and hold on. Don’t go running to the surface to see if you can fix it, cos chances are, you can’t”. That’s me all over really, always wanting to fix things and getting frustrated when ‘my plans’ don’t work out. This time, I am going to try and hold on fast to faith and let Jesus show me how He intends to get my family through this rough spot. Amen.
