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.
Sometimes the mud and the mire can pull us down and overcome us. Sometimes we cry out and feel as if our hearts will burst, as if our prayers are bouncing back to us, as if we are too insignificant to utter the words again. Will anyone hear them? Why would He care about me?
But He will hear our cries ~ and put a new song in our mouth. We must continue to trust and obey and to BELIEVE, from the bottom of that slimy pit, that we are FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made ~ Loved with an Everlasting Love! We must believe in our hearts that He does listen, that He cares for us and that the enemy will not take up residence and make us feel insignificant.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Fight the good fight!
