When I was young we lived near the ocean – well the Gulf of Mexico. One day I was dipping my two year old toes into the waves, barely. My parents were laughing and talking together on the beach. I looked at them having so much fun and said, “I guess you guys are just gonna let me drown!” (I based that on the tv news that shared a young boy had gotten caught in a rip tide and drowned recently)
Oh beloved, feel like you’re drowning in the ocean? Do you think God has forgotten you and is just going to let you be flung out to sea by torment, sadness and troubles?
Never fear! You are safe in the ocean of your problems because God’s love is deeper and wider than any ocean you face. His love IS like the ocean! Wherever you go you are safe in the Father’s hands. Yes, troubles may come your way but nothing will ever separate you from His love.
Because God loves you bigger than the ocean He is for you wider than the sea. You are safe and you are invincible. Keep speaking the truth over yourself and rejoice that you can walk on the water with inconceivable joy as you swim in the Light of His Glory and Grace!
Isaiah 43: 2 When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
1 Chronicles 16: 34 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His loving devotion endures forever.
