Out Of The Destructive Pit

 He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. (Ps 40:2) ESV

At times we may find ourselves in the destructive pit; but we can always lift up our eyes to the Maker of heaven and earth, who is faithful to help and deliver us. The Psalmist says,” He drew me up…” that means that even if we wanted to remain in the pit of defeat, God will forcefully drag us out.

 Beloved, God will lift us out of any pitiful circumstance that we may find ourselves in, so we can lift up our heads from self-pity.
Let us arise from our pit of despair and shine for our Light has come and He will lift us out and secure us step so we won’t slide back in that dark place and begin to walk in the Light of His glory.

Out Of The Miry Pit

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”(Psalms 40:2)NIV

The psalmist was stuck in a horrible place that he could not get himself out of, so he had no choice but to wait on the Lord. Eventually David could testify; “He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay…” this shows that God did not just see what David was going through and He did not just listen to him pray, but He did something about it. God got into the pit with David and lifted him out.

Beloved, whenever we are stuck in the miry clay of hopelessness and helplessness; we know that we have a faithful Father who will lift us up and set us free, as long as we call upon Him and patiently wait on Him.
