Rescued from Deep Waters

He reached down from heaven and rescued me; He drew me out of deep waters.------Psalm18:16

I think this verse of Scripture could be related to a LOST PERSON or a SAVED PERSON.

Let's look at it from the view of the LOST PERSON, when we were in the state of being LOST or SEPARATED from the Almighty God we definitely NEEDED to be RESCUED out of the DEEP WATERS of our SINFUL LIFE.  And as the Psalmist has stated; God reached DOWN from heaven and RESCUED us.  He heard our CRY and SAVED us from DROWNING in our SINS.  He lifted us UP from the depths of our sins and PLACED our feet on the SOLID ROCK, who is the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Now let's look at it from the the SAVED PERSON'S view.  When we become a CHRISTIAN we are NOT automatically RELEASED from ALL our sins, because we are still in the FLESH, we STILL sin, the difference between the LOST and the SAVED is that we have the HOLY SPIRIT of God INDWELLING us and CONVICTING us CONTINUALLY and even though ALL our SINS, PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE are COVERED by the PRECIOUS BLOOD of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, we STILL need to CONFESS those sins, with a REPENTANT HEART, before we end up in the DEEP WATERS  again.  We have been RESCUED once already and we need to HEED the WARNING SIGNS:  BEWARE OF THE DEEP WATERS!

So if you are in those DEEP WATERS and maybe going down for the last time, and you DESPERATELY NEED a LIFEGUARD to LIFT you out, this is what you MUST do:  CONFESS your sins to God and then ask for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He's waiting!!!
