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