Deep Calleth unto Deep

By Benny Hinn

To experience a deeper dimension of God’s presence, your soul must hunger and thirst for God in the same way a deer pants for the safety and sustenance of water. Only a small percentage of believers ever really experience this kind of intimacy with God because of the price.
Psalm 42:1-2 declares, “As the hart [male red deer] panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”

In the natural, the panting of the deer is an audible agonizing for the safety the waters provide when pursued by a predator. When the deer runs into the water, the predator can no longer detect its scent. In addition to finding safety from its enemies, the deer finds relief from thirst in the waters.

“Intimacy with God is found only in the
realm of the spirit.”Spiritually, your process of discovering a deeper dimension of God’s presence involves longing, thirsting, and seeking. David wrote, “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary” (Psalm 63:1-2).

Intimacy with God is found only in the
realm of the spirit. There is a place of deep anointing, deep presence, and deep
intimacy with God Almighty where “deep calleth unto deep” or spirit calls unto spirit. It is a place that is so pure that every part of your being is consumed by the presence of Almighty God; a deep place where there is perfect communion between your spirit and every dimension of God’s presence. Your soul is stirred and there is a breakthrough in the spirit as “deep calleth unto deep” (Psalm 42:7).

It is at times like these that words become inadequate, because spoken words are the expression of the mind and not the soul. Words cease, and you stop asking. Only your heart can speak as it erupts in worship. There is perfect harmony, perfect oneness. As you bask in the glory of His awesome presence, your spirit begins to fellowship with Him, crying out, “Oh, that I might know Him! Not the things He gives, or what He imparts, but Him!”

Grace!!!

Titus 2:11-14 (NIV) 11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

The Lord is My Shepherd…

The most wonderful thing one can realize is that when you have  a shepherd, you are safe and you can never be lost.

The Lord is my shepherd, with him i am safe.

He protects me from danger and keeps the enemy away.

The Lord is my shepherd, with him am on the right path.

He guides me in the way to go and because i follow him, i can’t get lost.

The Lord is my shepherd, with him i can’t starve.

He has provided me with the bread of life, and because i drink from the river of life, i never thirst!

The Lord is my Shepherd!! in him i have my confidence…

Of Battles and Wars.

Harry Truman once said

“In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves…self-discipline with all of them came first.”

And from this I have learnt, that if I am to conquer my enemy and overcome my challenge, self-discipline is key; and that includes the discipline to always think victory and not failure. That I should so tame my mind to entertain only thoughts of good success.

And that, in itself, is victory!

Feel free to win!!

Thinking Spot…

Sometimes we hold back from our goals and targets because we are too afraid of what others will think or say.

We are so afraid that our success will be too hurtful to those around us. We think to ourselves “let me not do this because i don’t want X to think am showing off.” or “Shh, don’t let anyone know i got an A, they’ll feel bad and not want to be friends with me.”

Well, there comes a time when you need to stop living for others. Like someone once said, “Be yourself, everybody else is taken.” People that feel intimidated or angered by your success shouldn’t be the benchmark for what you do, otherwise, you’ll never get to do anything you really want.

Surround yourself with people  who celebrate your success and encourage you to do more. Be free to Win! Free to soar!! Free to conquer!!

Live life big!!! He did give us all things to enjoy, so go ahead, enjoy it!!!
