God's Love Is Deep Enough To Meet Your Needs

"The Lord reached down from above and took hold of me; he pulled me out of the deep waters" (Psalm 18:16 TEV).

"Betsy replied, "There is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper." "

There are times when we all think, "I'm going under for the last time! I'm about to sink!" No matter how deep you are, God's love is there; he can pull you out of the deepest waters.

No matter what problem you have, God's love is deeper than your problem. You may be in deep despair, deep trouble, under deep stress. You may have deep problems—emotional problems, physical problems, financial problems. 

Yet, God's love is deeper still. 

Corrie ten Boom and Betsy ten Boom were Christians who lived in the Netherlands during Word War II. They hid Jews in their home to protect them from the Nazis. When they were discovered, not only were the Jews taken to the concentration camp but Corrie and Betsy were taken as well, and they spent the rest of the war there.

After watching one atrocity after another, Corrie told Betsy, "This place is the pit of hell!" Betsy replied, "There is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper."

In the last few months, you may have hit bottom. Perhaps you're at the bottom financially and you think, "I am going broke!" Or, you've hit bottom emotionally, or your marriage has hit bottom, or you're having health problems. You're frustrated and you think, "I'm going under."

Where is God when you hit bottom? He's right there underneath you. He is "your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you" (Deuteronomy 33:27 NLT).

Drop into his arms of love. Let him catch you and support you when you have nowhere else to go.
