Fighting The Water


It's a word no one ever wants to hear.  We build our levees.  We make our preparations to secure our homes.  We bite our finger nails when we hear news of its possibility.  It just makes us down-right nervous.  It's an act of nature that, if unleashed, can overcome us.

In the natural, flooding is a headache and can be a heartbreak.  But, in the supernatural, it's the best thing that can ever happen to us. 

God's Love toward us is a Mighty River.  It's Strong.  Its Power can overwhelm us. 

But, many of us have built our levees.  We have built our walls of self protection -- maybe even without realizing it.  We fight against the Mighty Current.  We resist the waters of Love that want to flood our hearts so that it can cleanse us, overwhelm us with its Joy, sweep us off our feet and carry us into the arms of our Father.

And, He's asking us.

He's asking us to let go.  Let Him in.  Let the flood waters flow.  Let His Love drench our hearts.  Cleanse us.  Fill us.  Settle our greatest fears.  Calm our stressful minds.  Wash our broken lives.

He's asking us...   to allow the Flood.
