To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Oceans by Hillsong United
So, I’m in a place right now, well I mean my family and I are in a place right now that is so uncomfortable.
You may know that place. The place where you relinquish your will for God’s will.
A while back I had come into contact with a song by Hillsong United called Oceans.
Here’s a bit of the lyrics for that song:
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
Yikes! That’s what I would say every time my mouth would begin to form those words.
See sometimes I would be singing it without even noticing that I was singing it; but the moment it would dawn on me that I was actually quoting those words I would say Yikes!
And then I would tell the Lord I didn’t mean to sing that song and hope He would just overlook that moment.
I for one would try to pretend that I never uttered those words. I mean I wanted to express my love for the Lord.
I just wanted to be able to express my undying love in a more comfortable way.
I live for comfort.
Comfort has always been safe to me.
And I always play it safe.
Well I use to always play it safe.
But God wanted me to let go of the reigns of self security and begin to rely on His security which is the only sure thing that is safe. That’s real.
So, while I was avoiding being uncomfortable, My husband was steady calling himself to a deeper place in God.
Oceans for him was basically on repeat.
I would walk pass the bathroom most mornings and would hear that song playing while he was in the shower.
I would roll my eyes and think, I want no parts of that song.
The only part I hadn’t realized is the fact that we’re married and with that comes a oneness.
And because of that oneness I didn’t even have to fully commit to what God was placing in my heart for it to come to pass.
Actually even if he hadn’t been singing and praying to come closer to God, I still would’ve ended up right as this moment because God had already placed it in my heart.
I was just trying to avoid the inevitable as long as possible.
Isn’t so wonderful to know that our God is so patient?
So today I stand in a place where we’re totally dependent upon God for our everything.
I felt in my spirit that He was saying that He will be our God and we will be His people.
And even though I fought hard to avoid the wilderness. I wouldn’t change it now for a thing.
Because the best kept secret that the enemy never wants us to discover is that we’re truly powerful only when we’re resting in God.
We’re going somewhere in God and the only way we can get there is through God.
We’re worshipping as one unit now.
We’re praying to God as a unit now.
And we’re now depending on God as one unit.
Our journey to wholeness has started and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see His as He is.
1 John 3:2
