I know it has been a while since I reached out, but I have to tell you that I have been immersed in the most miraculous time of restoration!! I make no apologies, as this has touched me deeply and my encounters with Jesus have brought deep repentance and deep healing and have released things I’ve been praying about for the past 20 years!! It has truly been a gift; He is filling me up in ways I have only dreamed of (okay…begged for)…and this is not exclusive to me. He is no respecter of persons, He is the leader to and a responder of deep surrender.
Psalm 42:7 “Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.”
Deep calls to deep. The real you. The deep part that longs for Him and yearns to respond to Him. A place where He washes, and sweeps over and cleanses and restores in ways no man ever could. He bids you to come, surrender yourself, and receive. He knows you. You know, the ugly that you don’t show anybody. The prodigal that hides from true authority, thinks they know best, rages or runs when afraid, and settles on the worst in this life, resolving it is the best…but bitter about it. He knows you. How you’ve gotten to the place you are and just how to lead you home. He will break strongholds, release captivity, remove blinders, open your ears, and raise you from the dead, if need be, to show you His love as He restores you to your rightful place as His son.
Luke 11 “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20So he got up and went to his father.
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
21“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
Deep is calling to you my friend. He sees you, He has compassion on you, He is running to you, throwing His arms around you and kissing you with His perfect love. Not because you deserve it but because you are His son!!!
I can hear Him saying over you today, “QUICK!!!!!!! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Let him feast today on Jesus and His perfect sacrifice. Let’s have a feast and celebrate, not condemn, not wallow for pig’s food! This is my son, the son of my heart. He was dead and is alive again!!! He was lost but now is found!!! Let’s celebrate!
You are worthy because you are His child. You are worthy because of Jesus’ sacrifice. You are worthy because He says you are! You are His child, His beloved and He came to set you free. Now, go receive this free gift your Father is giving you. Go Home!!! Go straight to His arms!!! Celebrate the Gift of Calvary!!! And go open your mouth and tell the devil whose you are today. Proclaim His deliverance in your life, stand up to the oppression and fruitlessness and apathy and depression and lethargy that has set in and shout right in the devil’s face, “I am a child of God!!”
Bless you on your journey into Deep!
