I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Psalms 40:1-3
Have you ever been in a pit? All you can see is darkness and there’s no light. You feel all alone even though there are people all around you, but there is a wall that separates you from them. You cry out God where are you as you go through the motions of your days. Day in and day out you are in this pit. You want to escape, but there is no way out of it. So you sit and you wait. But in your waiting you seek the Lord. You pray anyhow even though it seems like your prayers bounce off the walls. You search the scriptures looking to read a word from God to hold on to. Just as quickly as you went into the pit, one day you find yourself out of it. Thank you Lord, I’m out of the pit.
