Sinking Deep

Bethel Music

Message

Hillsong Young and Free originally wrote this song 7 years ago, but its message is eternal. Jesus is for us and He is a constant presence working on our behalf. His love is perfect; it draws you to sink deep into it. It envelopes you, surrounds you. When you experience the depth of this love, you can’t help but want more and, in return, love Him back by surrendering your life to Him. 

Verses

I reference The Voice version found on Biblegateway.com. While I do not use this version for my personal study, I believe it captures the essence and meaning in a unique way.

Be Wide Awake and Ready

Luke 12:35-36 (The Voice)  I’m not just talking theory. There is urgency in all this. If you’re apathetic and complacent, then you’ll miss the moment of opportunity. You should be wide awake and on your toes like servants who are waiting for their master to return from a big wedding reception. They’ll have their shoes on and their lamps lit so they can open the door for him as soon as he arrives home.

Nothing Separates Us From the Love of God

Romans 8:35 (The Voice)  So who can separate us? What can come between us and the love of God’s Anointed? Can troubles, hardships, persecution, hunger, poverty, danger, or even death? The answer is, absolutely nothing.

Knowing Jesus is the greatest treasure

Philippians 3:8 (The Voice) And more so, I now realize that all I gained and thought was important was nothing but yesterday’s garbage compared to knowing the Anointed Jesus my Lord. For Him I have thrown everything aside—it’s nothing but a pile of waste—so that I may gain Him.

My Life

I have not always been at a place of living in His love. I came to know the Lord in 1998, but did not truly experience this depth until more recently. Over the years, I grew in knowledge and understanding. By His grace, the Spirit led me through various peaks and valleys. However, I always felt like there was a disconnect; something missing.  Why had I barely changed on the inside? Why did I still struggle so much with anger and frustration with life? Because I wasn’t fully tapped into His love. I will write more about that later and link it back here, but suffice it to say, the Lord is faithful! When our hearts cry is to know Him fully and live a life of love, joy and inner peace, He answers. 

Take a listen to the song below. Is this your hearts cry? Do you experience the deep love of the Father? If you too, feel the disconnect I once did and need someone to chat with, send me a message below.  I’d love to talk with you. 

Take a Listen

This version is done by Bethel and blends into a mix of other songs. Hence, it is much longer than the original.

Lyrics

Standing here in Your presence
In a grace so relentless
I am won
By perfect love Wrapped within the arms of heaven
In a peace that lasts forever
Sinking deep
In mercy’s sea I’m wide awake
Drawing close
Stirred by grace
And all my heart is Yours
All fear removed
I breathe You in
I lean into Your love
Oh, Your love When I’m lost You pursue me
Lift my head to see Your glory
Lord of all
So beautiful Here in You I find shelter
Captivated by the splendor
Of Your face
My secret place I’m wide awake
Drawing close
Stirred by grace
And all my heart is Yours
All fear removed
I breathe You in
I lean into Your love
Oh, Your love Your love so deep
Is washing over me
Your face is all I seek
You are my everything
Jesus Christ
You are my one desire
Lord hear my only cry
To know You all my life Love so deep
Is washing over me
Your face is all I seek
You are my everything
Jesus Christ
You are my one desire
Lord hear my only cry
To know You all my life I’m wide awake
Drawing close
Stirred by grace
And all my heart is Yours
All fear removed
I breathe You in
I lean into Your love
Oh, Your love Source: LyricFind Songwriters: Aodhan King / Joel Davies Sinking Deep lyrics © Capitol Christian Music Group
