16 He sent

took [laqach] me, he drew [mashah] me out of many [rab]
waters. [mayim] KJV-Interlinear
16 He sent
from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. NASB
He, is God.
Sent from above, means that all of Gods efforts come from heaven and from nowhere else. His life and essence and power and so forth are not of this world, but from heaven which is the current residence and seat of power of God.
All efforts of sustaining, all details of provision, all things that exist in your life, come not from this world, but from God in heaven. Were it not for God, this earth, your life, would not exist. Were it not for God, the things in this world, the vast reservoirs of resources, would not exist. Were it not for God, the principles of establishment would not exist.
He drew out from many waters. The many waters is a reference to all of the worldly turmoil, all of the many philosophies, all of the many religions, all that is untrue, evil and corrupt in this world.
And so in your life and mine, we are surrounded by the cosmos of this world, a realm that is filled with the most anti-God views and attitudes and opinions and such. And yet God is able to rescue us out from, 'drew me out,' the turmoil and chaos of this world.
And when the end of the world finally comes along, that time period will be filled with phenomenal chaos, and turmoil and death, and disaster, but God will still be able to sift through the chaos, and find each individual spiritually mature believer, and rescue them, and bring them to safety.
If you followed the Revelation study, then you know that the end of the world will be filled with massive earthquakes as entire continents will be shaken to their foundations, and storms and murderous gangs and armies, not to mention the massive starvation and absence of economies, but still there will be a few who God can and will deliver.
No matter what the circumstances of your life, nothing is too great for God. God is well able to deliver you through any and all trials you will encounter. But God will do things on His terms, not necessarily yours. His terms are the best terms possible. Your obligation is to be in compliance with Gods mandates for the spiritual life.
