I find myself singing these lyrics emphatically, emotionally and passionately but am I true to them?
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior.
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders.
Truth be told, we mostly lead ourselves to dangerous zones and then come back running to God for refuge.
Would it not be the most wonderful thing when we live in a world where trust is without borders? Where you don’t have to keep your tongue in check? Where you don’t have to worry about whom you are talking to and what you are talking about? May the Spirit of the Lord lead us.
A truth that we always ignore is that in the presence of God we have trust without borders…….even in our foolishness. God is not just God but also a father and a friend.
Let me walk upon the waters, wherever You may lead me.
Would we be like Peter to start walking on the waters with faith when we are called out, then we step out in doubt ultimately sinking?
Are you comfortable with the uncomfortable if you knew for sure that the Lord was in charge? Or must you be in charge?
Wherever? What if the Lord leads you to serve in an area that you are not comfortable with e.g. sharing the gospel with a colleague over lunch, visiting the sick at the local hospital, starting a prayer fellowship in your neighbourhood or responding to a call for service within a particular church activity? Would you be willing to walk upon this kind of waters?
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander.
The gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit cannot be achieved by our own hands and feet. 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. Galatians 5:22-23. Our efforts can produce a familiarity of the same but not with the power that comes from the Holy Spirit. 2 Timothy 3:5.
Do a sense check today and see to it that in your spiritual growth, you are operating in the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit. Ask God to confirm that you are on the right path, doing the right thing, the right way & at the right time.
And my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.
Dear Lord, help me today that my confessions tally with what is in my heart. Sometimes, I sing because it is the corporate thing being done. Guide me so that I sing the song that You have put in my heart. Guide me so that I sing to You a new song. Guide me so that my faith be made stronger. Guide me so that I do not have to worry when I am in the middle of a storm. Guide me oh Lord, my King and my Saviour. In Jesus name, amen.
