Deep Calls Unto Deep depicts a worshipper allowing their spirit to flow forth in worship as the deep wells of living water burst forth. This is a foreshadow of His promise of breakthrough.
- Psalm 42:7-8 (NIV) Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.
- Ephesians 3: 16-19 (ESV) That according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
- Proverbs 25:2 (ESV) It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.
There will always be those who mistakenly think a person lacks depth, but I created you. And I gave you depth. And it is to that deep place within you that I call. Out of the deep well of My heart, I call to you. I invite you into a deep place of revelation and mystery. A place where things are not hidden from you, but hidden for you. You are the king that I am calling to come and search out what I have concealed for you. Come deeper with Me. It matters not what people may have called or if they have misunderstood you, for I have seen you and I have understood you, and I say that there are great depths within you yet to be shown and explored. And if you accept My invitation, you will be amazed by the depths that you receive from Me. I am revealing your value and worth to you, and a whole new world and revelation is about to explode around you. Accept My simple invitation, and in doing so you will bust off the chains that have held you back. Experience a breakthrough of My deep revelation.
A series of four Prophetic Nuggets from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries based on Psalm 42:1, 5, 7-8 (VOICE) are connected to this. It reads:
My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water. Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life. In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.
The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Unquenchable Fervor.”
Psalm 42:1 (VOICE) My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water.
Beloved, may your heart long for Me with an unquenchable fervor. May you soak in My presence as if your life depends on it – because it does. May your pursuit of Me be relentless, just as Mine is for you. And may you find peace in My presence, for it is there for you.
Where else would you go to assuage your desire? For no person or earthly thing can satisfy the longing in your soul. None but Me, beloved. So resist the urge to look to poor substitutes, and saturate yourself in the fullness of My love.
The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Rest Weightlessly in the Ocean of My Love.”
Psalm 42:5 (VOICE) Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life.
Beloved, resist the urge to allow tumultuous emotions to weigh you down. Instead, rest weightlessly in the ocean of My love. I AM your heart’s desire, and I AM Ruwm Rosh – the lifter of your head. Look to Me, and let Me meet each need.
I AM holy, beloved, and true to My word. Trust My heart for you. Press through with praise – regardless of circumstance, and see the outpouring of love I lavish upon the ones whose hearts seek fast after Me.
The third is called “Drown in My Depths.”
Psalm 42:7 (VOICE) In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning?
Beloved, is there such a thing as too much of My love? Come drown in My depths. Be lulled in the flow of My Spirit. Be invigorated – My breath like bubbles against your skin. I AM El Shammah – the God who is present, and I AM always with you.
Press into Me and seek out the deep mysteries, for I will not withhold wisdom from those who ask. Be drawn deeper still, for there is no end to Me. Revelation upon revelation. Mercy beyond mercy. Love, endless love. Like a pool of swirling waves, happily drown in the pleasure of knowing and being known.
The final Prophetic Nugget in this series is called “YHVH Zimrath (the Lord your Song).”
Psalm 42:8 (VOICE) Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.
Beloved, quiet your soul and hear My song. Its strains whispering peace to those who would listen. Tune in to that golden flow. Let it wash over you. Let it be what mandates the cadence of your life.
Resist the urge to allow the chaos of the world to bring discord, but instead press in deeper, like a child burrowing into their parent’s shoulder – safe, secure, and loved in their arms. I AM your safety and I AM your song – YHVH Zimrath, the Lord your song.
