Deep Sea Fishing

Soul Snack 44/11 ... Deep Sea Fishing

Denizens of the deep describe an unseen sea life, rich in both obscurity and fascination. To my mind these creatures of darkness appear grotesque and certainly fearsome. They live with a purpose I fail to comprehend and in a place I shall never go. These bizarre lives lare secreted in the bowels of God's deepest waters.

Deep within each of us are denizens we too can't observe. There are those that hold fears we can't explain. They rob rest, harm the spirit and multiply earthly cares. Such residents exist uninvited. Their fearsomeness can be consuming.

Refuse to become a deep-sea fisherman, dangle no lines within. Instead invite the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit of Jesus, the Mighty Counsellor to do the fishing and catching. Then enjoy real freedom through the Holy Spirit of Truth when these denizens of your deep no longer swim in your life.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. (Ps 139:23)
