Why God Calls Us to 'Restore the Roar' of His Spirit Within

God is eager to awaken you once again to go deep in Him. "Deep calls to deep at the noise of your waterfalls; all Your waves and Your billows passed over me. Yet the Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song will be with me, a prayer to the God of my life" (Ps. 42:7-8). I believe that if we ignore the "deep calls to deep" moments, we will soon believe the shallow end of the pool is deep.

I must warn you, though, that when you try to go deep in God, someone will always try to throw you a rope called settling. You cannot settle in the depth of God.

I have learned that the longer you are away from the place of encounter with God, the more satisfied you become with being normal according to the world's standards. In fact, it is much like what happened to the prophet Elijah when he ran into the cave in fear for his life. God said to him, "Why are you here, Elijah?" (1 Kings 19:9b). Remember, Jezebel had threatened Elijah after he had killed the prophets of Baal, telling him through one of her servants, "So let the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as one of them by tomorrow about this time" (1 Kings 19:2b). Elijah ran for his life and was now hiding in a cave. God was not really asking him, "What are you doing here?" Rather, He was reminding him of his mission. Leonard Ravenhill once said, "A man who is intimate with God is never intimated by man." We must no longer be intimidated by man or accusations or threats.

Early one morning in a hotel room in Pennsylvania, I was awakened by the voice of the Lord. He said to me, "Pat, where did your roar go? read more
