Scuba Diving: Rest in Me

Scuba Diving: Rest in Me by Laurie McTier

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;" Isaiah 43:1-3

A few years ago, each of our staff members were challenged to take scuba diving lessons. We knew that this challenge could reap great benefits. As we worked together during each course, our staff drew closer to one another. We had to work together in order that our goals would be accomplished and each diver could receive their certification. I noted that when a diver was in trouble or having difficulty, there were immediately two or three buddies there to assist.

During the scuba lessons, my first and foremost fear was breathing underwater. The oxygen tank was there to provide the necessary oxygen. I had to learn to relax, stop fighting the regulator, and let the oxygen perform its duties.

The next morning in my devotional time, God gave me an inner peace to continue the course. Scuba diving is similar to the daily Christian walk. Trust, Faith and Belief. Do we truly believe our equipment (the Word of God) is functional and effective? Do we really believe that God is who He says He is? Do we take Him at His Word? You may not be going scuba diving today, but God wants you to rest in Him, no matter what trial comes your way. "Fear not...For I am the Lord your God."

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for His Omnipresence and Power in your life. Praise Him for the ability to have Peace and Confidence in the midst of storms.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go Ministry Supporters. It takes teamwork to make the dream work! Our ministry supporters have made commitments to play a vital part of our team through praying, sharing, caring, going, and growing.
