Psalm 40

psalm 40

“I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth; Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1-3

You know what my horrible pit is? Let me see. My job, my boss, my fears, my singleness. And anything else that brings me down on a daily basis. But God will take me out of it and He will set my feet upon a rock. You know why? Because I trust in Him. He is all that I have in this world that will never, ever leave me nor forsake me. He is faithful when I am not. He loves me when I am not loving. He gives me His grace, when I don’t give it to others. He has me where He wants me to be, to do His will not mine.

I know, I tend to do MY will many times and this is when I find myself in that horrible pit. When I don’t put my trust in Jesus. When I don’t praise His name. But God will always be there when He takes me out of that pit. I want to encourage you today. Whatever it is that you are going through God WILL get you out of that horrible pit. He does hear your cries. He does love you. Put your trust in Jesus.
