“I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.”
Have you found yourself in the pit? Does it seem like there is no way out? The walls are high and slippery, every time you try to escape you slip back down? David knew exactly how you feel. There are many pits in life we can fall into. Emotional pits of bitterness, depression, fear. Financial pits of debt or inadequate income. Relational pits of alienation, fighting or loneliness. Career pits of unemployment or underemployment. The good news is that God knows about our situation. He is able to help us. As David waited patiently for God, God heard his cry. God lifted him out of the pit of despair and put him on solid ground. He can do the same for you. Cry out to God today. Tell Him about your situation. Share with Him how you feel. As you do, you will find God lifting you out of the pit you are in. He will put you on solid ground. He will give you a new song to sing. Best of all, as God works in your life, many will see what is happening and put their trust in God the same way you do. Give God your situation and begin to trust Him for deliverance today.
Father, You know the pit I am in. I admit my participation in this and repent of any of my doing that has kept me here. I ask You, Father to lift me out of this. I will wait patiently for You dear God and trust You for Your deliverance. In Jesus Name.
