Everyone desires to go deeper with the Lord. We experiment with a lot of things, ways, means and all we try to do is take our worship deeper.
We try looping songs; we try singing like Hillsong, studying music notes playing like Paul Baloche and we spend all our time practising and sharpening skill.
All in the desire to do is to take my worship deeper.
“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me”, Psalms 42:7 KJV.
One thing I have learnt in these previous years is that depth always follows depth just like in Psalms 42. Have you ever seen people that sing the same song, play like the author but still they cannot get to the depth that the author?
There is a saying “use what you have to get what you don’t have,” when you have nothing you will get nothing. In life, you plant a mango tree and you harvest mangoes. Deep calleth unto the deep in you if the Spirit of God is the depth
Depth in your life is obtained by the word of God; careful study of the word of God will open your life to that place where you have never imagined. The Spirit of God transforms people into different people when men connect with Him, ask Elijah how he ran faster than a chariot. All Scriptures is God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16) and the moment the word of God takes root in your life it grows your own personal depth.
“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you”, John 15:3 and “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple”, Psalms 119:130. The word of God cleans you from within, the word of God preserves you, and this same word in Psalms 19 is said to cleanse us from secret faults and keeps us hidden from sin.
Jesus said “the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life”, (John 6:63 KJV), we want depth in our life then we have to take our devotional lives as worshippers as a very important. Psalms say at the entrance of thy word there is light, and then Jesus says this word will bring life and the spirit within you. Don’t read the word of God so that you can worship in a deeper manner, study the word to know God personally and develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit that is what going to take you deeper.
To grow any relationship to become a deeper one, you have to spend quality time with that person and the result will be a deep strong relationship.
For our worship to become deeper you as a worshipper, may your relationship with the Spirit of God and his word be of quality and in turn whenever you sing, play or offer worship the Lord the depth within you will call out to the depth in God and that is the place where we will see things.
Spend time practising, learning, refining your gift but most important of all spend your time with Him and you will find that it will increase the depth of your relationship with God.
