    Simon Peter said to them, 'I'm going fishing.' They told him, 'We are also coming with you.' They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing. But when day had already come, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus. John 21:3 WEBP...

The Waterfall

  • Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me. Psalms 42:7 ESV

    Moments before the water was still and quiet as they drifted down the stream. They were relaxed in the warm sunshine, not noticing the low roar coming. Suddenly, their lives flashed before their eyes and they began to panic as they realized they were quickly approaching a waterfall, and now it was too late to get off. Screaming loudly they went over the cliff, completely out of control, and splashed into a surprisingly tranquil pool below.

    Have you ever had things going great but then suddenly you hear the waterfall coming? It is terrifying to see the end of your world coming at you and there is no way to get out of this boat.

    Oddly enough, this is the way God usually brings promotion. What looks like the end of your world, is actually the beginning of a new era. The way up in the kingdom, is down. The greatest among you, will be your servant. Going over the cliff, is actually going up. Still it looks terrifying when it is coming at you and things will look better when you have gone through it.

    If you hear the waterfall approaching, brace yourself for the ride of your life, but remember: this will work out for your good. To go to a new level you must go over this waterfall.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that this will work out for my good. You will get me through this and I will come out a better person, in the name of Jesus I pray.

Wow, how true this is. Sometimes that waterfall might come at 3:30 in the morning. When God says it is time to get up and listen, it is a good idea to do so.

I have been there again and again, deep valleys and then up the hill again, but with the Lord! Panic hits and we are terrified, but as we grow in the Lord we realize this is only part of our maturing process and we are growing calmer and calmer knowing that what ever we are facing He is right there, He is with us. I know that I have a long way to go, to be what He wants me to be. Even, as I started to work again, right now it is for 6 days per week, it is hard getting used to the new routine, realizing that I'm no longer a "spring chicken" and no longer as fexible as I used to be, but on the other hand I have the Lord on my side, He is my strength and shield!!! Therefore I'm not afraid going over the waterfall again and again, since I know He is right there to catch me, praise His Holy Name!!!
