Divine Purpose

Wade E Taylor

“Deep calls to deep. At the noise of Your waterspouts, all Your waves and Your billows are gone over me.”  Psalm 42:7

The first “Deep” relates to the heart desire of our Lord for communion and fellowship with us.  The second “deep” relates to the spiritual capacity within us, which the Lord created to satisfy His desire.  The fact that the first “Deep” is calling to the second “deep” tells us that our Lord actively seeks and desires our fellowship with Him.

“Behold, I stand at the door (of your spirit), and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.”  Revelation 3:20-21 (comment added)

In search for the fulfillment of His desire for fellowship, God created the expanse of the universe, but still could not find that which He desired.  Therefore, He returned and formed man from dust (Adam was created to be dependent), and created within him a “depth” in his spirit that is inversely commensurate with the vastness of the universe.  This “deep” within man is capable of unlimited communion with God, through which the Lord receives a measure of satisfaction.
