He Rescued Me | Daily Devotional

He drew me out of deep waters

“He reached down heaven and rescued me; He drew me out of deep waters”- 2 Samuel 22:17

I was in a place of life where it seemed I was living life on repeat, making the same mistakes in one relationship to the next, ultimately doomed to fail.

Looking at my life from outside in and trying to find that missing piece to my puzzle of life I realized it wasn’t another man that would fill that piece.

I tried that for 10 years of my life with different men and it resulted to the same thing over and over again.

From heart break to heart break, loneliness to lonelier, to feeling on high then low.

It left me numb to the point that my heart no longer broke for it was already broken, never mended no matter how great a man I had in my life.

So I decided to seek for a greater purpose than a relationship to fill the loneliness, inadequacy and void that filled my heart and mind.

As I opened my heart to anything that would pull me out of deep waters He reached his hand and said “follow me”. He brought me back to shore.

For years what I thought was the way life should be, I was actually swimming away from the Rock. I was swimming away from Him, getting more lost as I tried to live my life according to the world.

I’m just glad that he rescued me from the world and that I didn’t drown or be eaten up by sharks.

He is my Rock. He is my foundation.

“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 3:11

The One whom I build my hopes and dreams on. For building my hopes in dreams on my own will is like building on sand.


Dear Heavenly Father,

You reached out for me when I was in deep waters. I pray that you continue to be my life guard and saviour.
Pull me back to shore when I am pulled by the tides and I am drowning. Give me strength to swim towards you for you are the One whom saves me.

There is no other way but You Lord. I put my trust in You and only You!

You are my Rock whom I build my hopes and dreams.
Remind me that my future is in your hands Lord and the plans that I make for myself should be approved by You for everything I do is for your glory.
I pray that I have more of you and less of me.
In Jesus mighty name,

Amen.
