The water flowed freely, cascading over river boulders, plummeting over the edge into the cove below. A spray of water filled the space with refreshment, and the sound of one thousand stampeding horses filled the air as the river surged to depths below and then continued its journey to the sea. The mighty waterfall commanded my attention.
His Mighty Waterfall Comes to our Rescue
I noticed the bubbles and spray rising to the surface, as the force of the waterfall created wave after wave as it came together with the pool below. Powerful. Forceful. An intertwining of the two becoming one.
I was reminded of Psalm 42:7-8, “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me — a prayer to the God of my life.”
Through some very difficult and painful circumstances, I have come to understand the meaning of this passage. I now realize that the depths of my pain cry out to the depths of God’s love and … He responds.
Like a mighty waterfall, His living water flows swiftly to me and plummets beneath the surface reaching into the depths of my soul. His waves and billows wash over me and minister peace, healing, and comfort. He infuses me with His strength. The surge of His living water overcomes my distress and delivers me from the clutches of the enemy.
What the Lord has done for me, He will do for you.
Hope in God. His Love Will Never Fail

Deep calls to deep …
Hope in God for you will yet praise Him, for He is your very present help in trouble. He commands His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with you.
