doesn't work for us anymore...then what?
Deep calls unto deep...Psalm 42:7
vs 4: "When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me.
For I used to go with the multitude;
I went with them to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and praise,
With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast.
vs. 5 Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
One of the greatest demonstrations of God's love towards us is He allows yesterday's worship to get really old!
"When Our revelation of God gets stale,
Our worship of God gets stale."
Our worship is not just what we bring to church on Sundays. Our worship is our lives lived out before the Lord. Could I say it this way....When our revelation of God gets stale....life gets stale!
In light of this truth, take time to reread Matthew 14:30 in a fresh new way Beloved....
Peter starts great...His heart cry is for Jesus to bid him come. He climbs out of the boat and walks for a short time only to find he begins to sink. We know from the text He took his eyes off Jesus and began to sink, then despair and fear took him under. He cried out "Lord save me."
Our life is to be a praise to God. Our life is to be a living sacrifice, a sweet smelling savor or incense that rises to the Lord. Without a fresh revelation of Jesus we begin to sink in self- pity, selfishness,
self-worship, self- absorption.
There is an old hymn I dearly love; Turn you eyes upon Jesus...
"And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace."
Could Jesus have been calling Peter to a fresh new way of worship?
Like the Psalmist who found he could not live off yesterday's revelation,
he began to cry for deeper still.
A fresh revelation of God brings new purpose, new vision,
a new sound.
Like the sound of many waters....All Your waves and billows have gone over me!
Prayer: Father let there come a fresh revelation of Your presence in our lives.
Deep is calling to Deep. Bid us come.
Hear our soul cry and answer with the noise from the waterfalls of Your heart.
Deeper Still Lord....deeper still.
