Oceans (Hillsong United)


[Verse 1]
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

[Verse 2]
Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

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

Our Thoughts

We all like our comfort zone but God would have us move out of this zone and into that place where we’re totally dependent on Him; where we’re led by the Spirit of God and are then truly the sons of God (see Romans 8:14). It’s a scary place to be because we like to be in control of our lives but ironically, it’s the safest place to be. God would have us give Him the reins of our lives so He can be in absolute control and like the Good Shepherd that He is, Jesus will lead us and keep us (see Psalm 23). When we surrender every aspect of our lives to Him, even the apparently mundane things can become an expression of worship to Him because worship simply acknowledges that He is King and the Sovereign God over our lives. This surrender would reflect in how we live daily – in the choices we make and how we do things we do. 

Are you satisfied with just dipping your feet in the ocean that is the abundant life in Christ or are you ready to go deeper?
