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.
