The Deeps

leave a comment »

Over the past several months, I’ve had difficulty with my prayer time.  It’s not something I’ve been too keen on sharing with many, but now that God has broken so many chains in my life during recent days, I can speak without shame.

This morning, I was using The Valley of Vision as an aide during my prayer time and the entry entitled “The Deeps” was a great help to me and God spoke to me (loudly) through it.  I wanted to share parts of it here.

Give me a deeper repentance, a horror of sin, a dread of its approach;
Help me chastely to flee it, and jealously to resolve that my heart shall be thine alone.

Give me more sweetness in the Word, deeper holiness in speech, thought, action, and let me not seek moral virtue apart from thee.

I have no Master but thee … no peace but that thou bestowest.
I am nothing but that thou makest me,
I have nothing but that I receive from thee,
I can be nothing but that grace adorns me.

Quarry me deep, dear Lord,
and then fill me to overflowing
with living water

(emphasis mine)

Amen and amen.
