I used to sing a song in church when I was young. It was called Deep and Wide.
The lyrics went " Deep & Wide, there is a fountain flowing deep and wide" . I hadn't thought about the song for decades. Suddenly, as with many things with God there it was before me.
There are many things about God I could relate to you but the thing I think is important today is that you know God is DEEP and WIDE. He is the land of milk and honey and it is constantly flowing!
My dreams keep me up at night sometimes but they almost always seem to convey such depth. Soon after I usually experience a break through. The depths of God searching me out, getting rid of the things in my spirit that are not His. I never reject his revealing of the things that need to be addressed. Sometimes they are difficult to swallow. Sometimes, it's like throwing the trash out the next day.
There is not much that God hasn't touched on within me and it brings me to him that much more deeply. At the core of it, being that his heart is for my heart. Developing me in such a way that the HOLY SPIRIT comes in and works on developing the parts of me God wants grown up for the body.
This last season for me was such toddler stage. I was learning to walk into my calling. I still feel wobbly at times, but I know like a good Father he is behind me and watches me carefully. How do you find the deep things of God? It begins with a hunger for him. A desire to take him seriously. Who knows what the Father can do once you give yourself to Him. Amazing things could happen!
My Father is deep and wide! There is no telling the adventure you could be on when you decide to abide in him and he in you. I was able to change my stars because of God. I didn't miss my Destiny nor my calling. I think it will surprise most people when they see the "me" God has been so graciously disposed to place inside me. My desires have definitely changed for the better I believe.
A house of cards can only stand for so long. So, traded mine in for the real thing. Now my house stands strong in the one true Father God. God in his wisdom creates simple steps (breadcrumbs) for us to follow but they are tailored just for us. Finally, when we have eaten all the crumbs we are offered a place at the table and we are surprised at its opulence. God has so much more for us than we have for ourselves. If you dream little dreams for yourself, God will dream BIG ones and gives us exactly what we need to bring about the whirlwind of Hope that will transform us into that which would could not conceive of. This is the light and Depth of God at his best.
Before we know it, we are given wings to soar like eagles and can't believe what God did to get us here. Believe me when I say, that song I sang as a little girl was only part of what God has to offer us.
Who will believe God, who will allow the Holy Spirit to transform the spirit man inside you?
I think you will be surprised at who you really are when God begins to change your stars and bring you to the land of DEEP & WIDE.
The enemy's traps have no place there.
Begin to ask God what he would like to do with your life. Allow that still small whisper to align with the love of God in your heart and let him lead the way. It occurs to me that if we are doing what the Lord has called us to do ... we are not comparing ourselves to others, we are not jealous of what others have but instead resting in the peace that only comes from God.
When our land is filled with the depths and breadth of God, there is wholeness and fullness, complete with his glory. God knows the heart of you written before you were born. Only he gets to say what you were made for and deliver you to it like it was the most natural thing under heaven. Developing God in your life is not an option as most people think, it is a necessity. It is a joy. It is a fulfillment, that leaves us all wondering why we didn't do it before.
While your searching know that God is always with you. Bringing comfort in every way to the body of Christ. Tender mercies flow over us as we search out only what the Father can bring to your life.
I believed he could change my life and he did. I believed in him and he showed up in such a way that my humble beginnings said it was a miracle! How in the world did God take a such a tiny creature and turn her into a voice that could reach so many. My love for HIM is strong and His love surpasses anything I could have ever done in the natural.
As you go through your day today, every once in a while thank HIM for the fountain that flows DEEP & Wide in you!
In Jesus Name- AMEN!
I Corinthians 2:
And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
