The sound of a waterfall in some beautiful mountain setting or the irregular, yet rhythmic breaking surf on an ocean beach is absolutely mesmerizing to me. There is just something about those sounds of nature that renew my soul. I am sure you can identify with these times that are hard to express when they capture our attention in a moment of solitude and introspection.
You know, God’s Holy Spirit is like that. Since we are created in God’s image, there is a natural yearning for God. It is like a hole in our heart and mind that only He can fill. He is constantly drawing us to Himself … to have that personal relationship with Him … to fellowship with Him … and to enjoy a peace that was originally intended for us. These are times when “deep calls to deep” within ourselves; a call that is hard to express yet you know it is there. The Holy Spirit helps us as Romans 8:26 says, “we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”
Isn’t that just like God? He knows what we need. He knows we need Him. He has created us that way. Yet He gives us the freedom and the will to choose Him and to acknowledge our sinfulness in a repentant faith and trust in Who He is.
Right From The Heart Ministries desires to prompt those times of truth in your life. Whether by encouraging you with a promise of God or reminding you of an expression of His love or even by challenging you with a consequence of ignoring the call of the Holy Spirit in your life. The Holy Spirit wants us to trust Jesus through His conviction and power. It is those times when His depth answers fully the inexpressible desire of our heart.
Jesus Christ is there when you do cry out. The last part of that Psalm passage says, “The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; and His song will be with me in the night, a prayer to the God of my life.” God as three Persons in One shows us the richness and holiness of Himself. The next time you encounter the sounds of a waterfall or a rolling surf or even a gentle rain know the Lord is commanding His lovingkindness toward you. Embrace it with the assurance that He will hear your “deep” call.
