Deep Calls to Deep

Denial, illusion, judgment, and knowing.

Ps 19:14 – Let the sayings of my mouth, And the meditation of my heart, Be for a pleasing thing before Thee, O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer! (YLT)

The sayings of my mouth.

Expressions that expose what is in my heart, revealing what I perceive to be truth and wisdom.

The meditation of my heart.

To earnestly, deeply think and to murmur with tenderness, evoking a strong emotional response.

As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, while they say to me continually, “Where is your God?” These things I remember, as I pour out my soul: how I would go with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God with glad shouts and songs of praise, a multitude keeping festival.

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.

My soul is cast down within me; therefore I remember you from the land of Jordan and of Hermon, from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me. (Psalm 42:1-7 ESV)

My soul

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
Why are you in turmoil within me?
Why are you making a chaotic, disorderly noise of unrest within me?

Turmoil: a loud sound, to hum, to give forth a confused, droning sound, to be in great commotion or tumult, to rage, war, moan, clamor, make an uproar, agitate greatly.1

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.
Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;

What do these words mean? Do you understand them with your mind? Or do they resonate in a far more interior place? Do these words stir you, bringing to your attention some longing deep within you so that you look up, and cry out, and reach out to connect with Something, Someone, who will satisfy you?

Deep: an abyss as a surging mass of water, especially the deep, the main sea or the subterranean water supply. To make an uproar or agitate greatly. To put in commotion, to disturb, drive, destroy. To make a loud sound.2

Deep calls to deep

Abyss, surging mass of water calls out to panting, longing, chaotic, disorderly soul that is in turmoil.
Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;
Do these words call up memories of painful, confusing, overwhelming emotions and experiences for you?
Are those emotions and memories associated with your life crumbling and shattering?

This perverse way of life… injustice… lies… collapses… smashed beyond recognition or repair… useless… a pile of debris… thrown in the trash.

Did/do you desperately try to collect all the broken pieces to put them together again when your life falls apart? Did/do you shake your fist and turn your back on God?

Did/do you stop? Look up? Cry out and remember, then reach out for your counterpart, Christ Jesus, by returning to dust to be remolded, your spiritual identity awakened?

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;

Might these words describe Job’s experience:

Job 1:14-19 – …and there came a messenger to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them, and the Sabeans fell upon them and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The Chaldeans formed three groups and made a raid on the camels and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” (ESV)

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;

Might these words describe the Hebrews’ experience of exile in Babylon:

Ezek 7:26-27 – Disaster comes upon disaster; rumor follows rumor. They seek a vision from the prophet, while the law perishes from the priest and counsel from the elders. The king mourns, the prince is wrapped in despair, and the hands of the people of the land are paralyzed by terror. According to their way I will do to them, and according to their judgments I will judge them, and they shall know that I am the Lord.” (ESV)

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;

Do you relate to the pain and loss that Job and the Hebrews experienced? Have you endured the crisis of evil instigated by your own vice, corruption, defects, flaws and errors and/or that of others?

Ps 88:15-17 – Afflicted and close to death from my youth up, I suffer your terrors; I am helpless. Your wrath has swept over me; your dreadful assaults destroy me. They surround me like a flood all day long; they close in on me together. (ESV)

God’s purpose

What is God’s purpose in afflicting and assaulting and surrounding us like a flood with the terrors of his wrath? Is his purpose to destroy us? Is his purpose to reveal and heal and restore? Both?

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;

Luke 2:34-35 – Simeon went on to bless them, and said to Mary his mother, This child marks both the failure and the recovery of many in Israel, A figure misunderstood and contradicted — the pain of a sword-thrust through you — But the rejection will force honesty, as God reveals who they really are. (MSG)

Surely Christ Jesus demonstrated for us through his life, death, resurrection, and ascension how to meet, accept, enter, and trust the deep, to bring us safely through to new life!

How do you respond to your fear of loss and suffering and death, your helplessness in crisis when your life crumbles like a badly built wall? Do you deny it? Do you work all the harder to hide or fix your crumbling wall? Do you blame and fight? Do you look for someone with resources to save you?

Or do you willingly return to dust, to clay in your Potter’s hands, trustingly breathing after the Lord God?

John 3:19-21 – “This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won’t come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is.” (MSG)

Are you an addict?

To be an addict is to give oneself up to some strong habit: usually in the passive voice.

Our vessel of wrath has given itself up to the strong habit of making plans, often passively, but not God’s plans, and making deals but not in God’s Spirit, and then denying that our ways and thoughts don’t align with reality.

Addicted to denial. Denial is the condition when the sayings of our mouth contradict the sayings of the Lord God’s mouth. The act of disowning. A refusal to trust.

Addicted to illusion. Illusion is belief or opinion that is not in accord with the facts of the Lord God’s character, words, thoughts and ways.

According to their way [their addictions to denial and illusion] I will do to them, and according to their judgments I will judge them, and they shall know that I am the Lord.”

According to their way I will do to them

Do you hear a comforting promise or a frightening threat in these words? Or both?

Rom 9:21-25 – Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honored use and another for dishonorable use? What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory— even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles? (ESV)

One Potter. One lump of clay. Two vessels made from the one lump of clay. What is the Potter up to? What are you, the clay, up to? Do you fight and resist and grasp for control? Or do you yield control so you can comply and participate with your Potter?

Prov 12:18 – There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. (ESV)

Isa 30:15 – For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” (ESV)

Are you familiar with the tongue of the wise that brings healing? Do you reside in a place of peace, joy, freedom and victory? Is your soul fully satiated?

Rest

Rest: to sink; descend; to press or lead down; to bring away. Deposit; to place or entrust for safekeeping. Depose. Lay down. Lay aside. Settle down; to dwell, stay, let fall, place, let alone, withdraw, give comfort.3

In quietness and trust shall be your strength: repose; lie at rest; rest in death or a grave. Idleness. Rest. Settle. Be still. Be supported. Have trust in. Rely on. Calm tranquility. Peace. Trust. Confidence. A place of refuge; safety, both the fact (security) and the feeling (trust). Your strength, force, valor, victory, power, mastery.4

“Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me,” the Lord God says.

Deep calls to deep.

Return. To dust. Yield to your Creator/Potter.

Our dwelling place

Ps 90:1-3 – [a psalm of Moses] Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You return man to dust and say, “Return, O children of man!” (ESV)

Our dwelling place.
The Lord God.
In all generations.
Return.

Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls;

What does the Lord God want you to discover about him and about yourself through these thoughts and words?

Ps 10:12-15 – Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up your hand; forget not the afflicted. Why does the wicked renounce God and say in his heart, “You will not call to account”? But you do see, for you note mischief and vexation, that you may take it into your hands; to you the helpless commits himself; you have been the helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked and evildoer; call his wickedness to account till you find none.

Call to account
You do see
Deep into the depths of my heart
You note mischief and vexation there
That you may take it into your hands
Call wickedness in me
Call wickedness to account till you find none

They shall know

Do you sense threat and fear and rejection, or do you sense Grace, Love and Fellowship behind these thoughts and words, or maybe you sense all the above?

Do you see a powerful, angry, vengeful, punishing Being as you read these words? Or do you see Creator/Potter molding and forming and re-forming, and re-forming again and again a lump of clay until it is perfect in his eyes? A vessel of mercy filled with his very life and power and love?

“According to their way I will do to them”
“According to their judgments I will judge them”
“And they shall know that I am the Lord.”
They shall know that I am the Lord.

Why does the Lord God want us to know that he is the Lord?

John 17:3 – And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. (ESV)

Is God’s purpose to destroy us or to give us life, or both, depending on which vessel he and we are focused on in any given moment?

You return man to dust and say, “Return, O children of man!”

Falling and Rising

Failure and recovery. Falling and rising again. Dying and resurrection. Spiritual recovery. Returning to our dwelling place, returning to the Lord God.

Falling.

Isa 30:8-17-18 – …till you are left like a flagstaff on the top of a mountain, like a signal on a hill. Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed (happy) are all those who wait for him.

Rising.
Rising. Wait: Through the idea of piercing; to adhere to; long, tarry, wait.5
Wait: To bind together, perhaps by twisting.6

Job 5:17-18 – “Behold, blessed [happy] is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he binds up; he shatters, but his hands heal. (ESV)

The Lord God wounds, makes sore, causes to feel pain, to grieve, to spoil, to make sorrowful.7
But the Lord God binds up. He wraps firmly. To stop. To rule. To govern. To heal.8
The Lord God shatters, pierces, strikes through, crushes, subdues, destroys.9
But the Lord God’s hands heal. Mend. Cure. Make whole.10

Denial, illusion, judgment, and then knowing the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom he has sent to you.

Vessels of wrath. Vessels of mercy. The mystery of paradox. A statement, an action, that seems contradictory but is true, and right, and kind, and merciful.

Interact with the words of Scripture through deep, careful study.

Read the Lord God’s words. Read slowly. Read reflectively. Let his words sink in. Ruminate upon his words. Take from them what he wants to give to you.

Meditate. Experience the word of Scripture bodily by moaning, growling, uttering, speaking aloud each word, syllable by syllable. Experience the words of Scripture expressing the longing and desire and hope in the depth of your own soul. Become acquainted with your longing. Anticipate that your soul’s longing will be satisfied, its hunger will be filled with good things, and it will be healed and made complete again. Let the inspired word of God arouse feelings of awe.

Respond by setting your thoughts and emotions aside and let your heart speak to God without words.

Then move beyond logic and reason; move from head to heart to spirit.

Simply rest in God’s words. Listen to God at the deepest level of your inner being. Listen as Love speaks with a still small voice that moves you to silence and an ever-deepening listening in which the Word becomes active and alive in you, gradually transforming you from within.11

2 Cor 13:14 – the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, [is] with you all! Amen. (YLT)

Contemplate. Sit quietly without thinking, without murmuring. Simply be. Become conscious of your companions. Longing for you. Your longing for them.

Stay in this place of rest and fellowship for as long as you can.

When finished, select just one word or phrase and carry it with you all day, thinking about it, murmuring it, holding it, treasuring it. Let it soak deep into your soul. Tomorrow meditate on the entire text again. Select the same word or phrase or a different one to carry with you all day, thinking about it, murmuring it, holding it, treasuring it. Do this practice every day. Let God’s Word begin to fill your soul with good things.

I ponder every morsel of wisdom from you, I attentively watch how you’ve done it. I relish everything you’ve told me of life, I won’t forget a word of it. (Ps 119:15-16 MSG)

 

But it is the spirit in man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand. (Job 32:8 ESV)

Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Focus intently on your breath to the exclusion of all else.

Inhale deeply.
Exhale deeply.

Become aware of the condition of your soul.
Is it depressed? In turmoil? Raging? Moaning? Agitated? Thirsty?

Breathe in.
Breathe out.

Pour out your soul. Spill it.
Through words of complaint to the Lord God.
Through tears. Through groaning. Through panting.

Do you regularly focus on your soul’s condition and needs as you do your body’s condition and needs? Your soul is dependent upon the steady flow of the breath of the Almighty just as your physical body is dependent upon breath to prosper and flourish.

Begin focusing on the sayings of your mouth. What do they reveal about what’s going on in your soul?

Speak openly and honestly with the Lord God. Express aloud and/or write down your thoughts, fears, questions, desires… God already knows what’s in your heart/soul/mind, but you may not until you work at getting honest with yourself and with God.

Express aloud or write down what you know about God, his/her character, words, ways, works, purposes, justice, thoughts about you…

Now turn to the meditation of your heart.

Meditation is an exercise/experience in which the sayings of your mouth and the meditation of your heart can be corrected or affirmed in the light of God’s words which reveal who God is and who you are; what God is doing and what you are doing; how God is doing it and how you are doing it regarding life.

Inhale deeply.
Exhale until you become aware of being empty of breath.
Become aware of your longing for breath.
As your body longs, so your soul longs for the breath of Almighty.
It is the spirit in you, the breath of the Almighty, that makes you understand.

Return to dust.
Surrender.
In complete dependence on God.
Mindful of your complete dependence on the spirit, the breath of the Almighty.
Be willing to be willing.
Surrender to the Lord God’s wounding.
Surrender to the Lord God’s shattering.
Rest in your Creator/Potter’s tender, skillful hands
As he notes mischief and vexation
And calls wrong and trouble to account till he finds none.

Lie at rest as in death. Idleness.
Sense calm tranquility envelop you.
Peace.
Be still.
Rest in complete dependence on the Lord God, your Creator/Potter.
Blessed [happy] are all those who wait for him.

Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Wait.
Wait for the Lord God in the same way that he waits for you.
Wait.
To be pierced. Penetrated. Stabbed.
Wait.
To be carved. To be made or shaped by being cut, chipped, hewed.
Wait.
To be divided by cutting. Separated from the vessel of wrath.
Wait.
To be delineated: To be sketched out; to be depicted in words, described.
Wait:
To be entrenched: To be surrounded or fortified with a trench; to be established securely.
Wait.
To be adhered to: To stick fast; stay attached; stay firm in supporting or approving.
Wait.
To long: To feel a strong yearning.
Wait. Tarry.
To be bound together.

Sense as the Lord God firmly wraps the wound that he inflicted to stop your perversion, to rule, to govern, to heal you.
Sense the Lord God’s hands upon you, healing what he has shattered, pierced, struck through, subdued, destroyed.
Feel the Lord God’s hands upon you, healing, mending, curing, making you whole, in body, mind, emotion, will, and spirit.
Now surrender in contemplation.

This is where you’ve gone as far as you can go with your body, mind and will. This is where you let go and allow God. This is where Holy Spirit works with your spirit to reconcile God and you, what God is doing and what you are doing, how God is doing it and how you are doing it regarding life.

Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Wait in silence. In anticipation.
Stay in this position of stillness, silence and anticipation for as long as you can. Simply be.
Close your eyes. Focus on your inner Being.

When ready
Breathe in
Breathe out
Sense strength beginning to rise in you. Sense power, mastery, victory begin to flow over, around and within you.

Rise.
Rise to live in complete dependence on the Lord God as he reveals who you really are, through the breath of the Almighty!

Go, live with the Lord your God in his house, the inner sacturary in the depth of your soul. Live from there, with the Lord your God the whole day long, his praise in your mouth continually, his word the unceasing meditation of your heart,

2 Peter 3:18 – But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. (ESV)

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. (Phil 4:23 ESV)

  1. “A zealous man will never reach peace of mind. And he that is destitute of peace is also destitute of gladness. Peace of mind is called complete health, zeal is the contrary of peace. He, therefore, that is moved by zeal suffers from a severe illness. ” P232 – St. Isaac of Nineveh – Mystic Treatises – 6th Cent.
