Great Unknown: Faith Without Borders

If you have 9 minutes and 36 seconds of time that you could set aside, I would so encourage you to just be still and listen to this song. I know for me and many others it’s a familiar one, but the words just hit differently for me this time and I have a feeling they might for you too.

I got home from work with lots to do and decided to turn on some worship music while I got down to business. Wedding planning ain’t easy folks, they weren’t kidding! This song stopped me in my tracks though as I looked up and saw the crowd in the video. Not the people on the stage, but the people out worshipping with lifted hands and closed eyes…also, many with their phones out, but I’m going to imagine they thought the moment was beautiful and wanted to capture it to have forever.

As I was watching, I just thought to myself, how amazing that our God can talk to all of those people at once. That He can give them comfort, He can give them peace, He can give them guidance, He can give them whatever they need at exactly this moment…and the most amazing thing to me, is that He KNOWS exactly what they need too…ALL of them!

Can you just think about that for a second? Let that idea sink in. Our ONE God, has the ability to talk, comfort, grieve, love, and speak to ALL people and more at one time. How amazing is that?

And that is the God that we trust and the God that this beautiful song talks about. The God that we give our time to. The God that leads us out into the waters where we can’t stand alone and where we don’t have to stand alone, because He is there!

And so…In oceans deep, our faith WILL stand.

In deep waters, we WILL find GOD in the mystery. We may not understand, but He will be there. He has a purpose and use for everything, good and bad. Sometimes our humans eyes and hearts just can’t yet comprehend it.

We will call upon His name & choose to keep our eyes above the waves. When oceans rise, our souls can rest in His embrace.

His sovereign hand will be our guide. When nothing makes sense, we can look to Him. For what to do, where to go, what to say, anything that we need!

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you will call me. No matter what that looks like, Lord. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander because I know that my faith will be made stronger in the presence of you, Lord.

I pray for courage, God. I pray for the unknown, Lord, so that I can grow closer to you. So that I can rely on only you. I pray, God that your would show up on in my life and I pray that I would be present and aware when you do show up.

And I pray for anyone reading this, that they too would be inspired by this song and feel your love and presence while they listen to it. Isaiah 43:2 When You Pass Through - Bible Verse Collection  Poster - 13x19 Unframed - Perfect Gift Under $20: Handmade
