Thrown in the Deep End | Devotional by Doug Lim

He measured off one other thousand, however now it was a river that I couldn’t cross, as a result of the water had risen and was deep sufficient to swim ina river that nobody might cross. Ezekiel 47:5

Attempting one thing we’ve got by no means achieved earlier than can terrify us,

whether or not it’s our first bike trip with out coaching wheels, our first drive on the freeway with Mother, or our first speech in entrance of a room of strangers.

After I realized easy methods to swim, it took me some time earlier than I gathered up the braveness to take my first plunge into the deep finish of the pool. I used to be positive I might flail round after which sink like a rock.

Gods function typically places us into deep waters.

He calls us to maneuver from the security of the kiddie finish of the pool and head towards the deep finish. If we select to paddle solely in waist-deep water, we miss the prospect to witness his grace and energy at work.

Once we do, effectively emerge on the opposite aspect with a new-found power a brand new perspective and a brand new religious lesson on easy methods to keep afloat once we discover ourselves within the depths of lifes struggles.

Father, I typically ignore your nudges to strive one thing new and sudden. Please give me the braveness to embrace the circumstances you place me in. Don’t let concern forestall me from taking a step ahead. Amen.
