Intro: Today I want to talk to you about “Getting in Deep”! From these 7 verses I can hear a prophetic utterance from the Lord that He is looking for some deep water believers. There is something about the deep that carries with it mystery, a freedom.

(9) But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. In Psalms 92:5 the Lord’s thoughts are described as deep. For many of you; you have spent your time in the shallow seeking after those things in the deep.
