A love letter from Jesus to those who have hit rock bottom.
In the hidden landscape of the ocean floor, lined with sunken ships, fallen volcanic ashes and other fallen items from the earth. The deepest underwater areas are the ocean trenches. The steep valleys and slopes carry the fallen things from land to the lowest ocean floor. Sometimes all it takes is an unexpected wave of grief to sink a ship. If you find yourself falling to your lowest place, this is what Jesus says:
“Fall into Me, fall into My care. When you find yourself at the lowest ocean, I will meet you there. You will lay down in peace as I cause you to dwell in safety. Let your soul wait upon Me, as your expectation. Watching over you, I neither slumber or sleep. I am your keeper and the shade at your right hand.
Like hot springs releasing hot water into the cold waters of the sea, I will give you power when you are faint and increase your strength. I have made you and I will carry you through. I will help you and I will hold you up. I will lift up your heart. When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you.
Underwater canyons and mountain ranges can rival in size and beauty to that of the land. There is a hidden treasure for you here, in the ocean depths. I have plans for you that are good and not for evil, plans to give you an expected end. I shall preserve you from all evil and protect every going out and coming in. When you lie down, you need not be afraid, return to your place of rest and quiet the stirring in your soul.
My chosen one, I have taken you from the ends of the earth and I have called you. I have chosen you and have not cast you away. I am your hiding place, surely the great flood waters will not come near you. I will preserve you from trouble and surround you with songs of deliverance. If you rise on the wings of the dawn, or if you settle on the far side of the sea, even there, my hand will guide you. At the lowest ocean, my right hand will hold you fast.
When you can no longer swim, learn to float. Rest in your hope and I will be your confidence. The rivers will not overtake you. I will make the storm a calm so that the waves are still. The sound of My many waters will restore your peace from within. Be of good courage and I will strengthen your heart.
Don’t let your heart be anxious or heavy to sink in the abyssal plain of the seabed. Cast every worry to me with prayer and thanksgiving. My peace which surpasses all understanding will keep guard of your heart and mind. I will keep you in perfect peace, as you stay trusting in Me, wrapping you up in My arms of Everlasting strength.
When the rains fell and the floods came with winds beating upon your ship. You stood firm because of the strong foundation that you built on My Word. When you found yourself falling, you were falling into Me. At the place of rock bottom, I am the Rock to meet you at your sorrow. When your heart is overwhelmed, relax into my Sheltering Arms. I will hold you through the breaking and make all things new again.
In the comfort of My love, all fear and hurt are gone. At the lowest ocean, there is so much yet to uncover and explore. I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hidden wealth of the secret places, so that you may know that is it I, the LORD your God, who calls you by your name. At the lowest ocean, you will encounter the beauty of my countenance shining upon your face and I will lift you up to ascend into a high and wonderful place”.
