Ps 40:1-3 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. 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. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD. (New International Version)
It is God’s desire for us to stand in a firm place, to Behold Him and sing praises to Him, so that others will taste and see and know that HE is the Lord God Almighty, and put their trust in Him. So, if you have been in a pit by choice and you know it, today is the day for you to choose freedom. Hard to imagine anyone desiring to remain in darkness but it happens to the best of us. Cry out to the Lord! Change your mind about desiring to stay in pity, pain, or entrapment and choose this day to desire freedom. If you are willing to agree with God and trust Him in freedom, then He will answer you and pull you OUT of the pity of depression, pain, and grief and give you a firm place to stand. What about you? Have you ever realized how your “horrible circumstance” could have been avoided by taking some very simple steps? What can you do today to cooperate with God regarding what you need to do to walk out of the pity or pain and into a pleasant place? Sometimes it IS our choice to make: pity or pleasant?
Pray with me – Father, show me how to respond to You and to life and to problems. I have to move forward but feel paralyzed by my past. It is ridiculous. Help me in Jesus name. Let it be.
Send this to friends who would be encouraged by Pity or pleasant.
