“What God Does for a Repentant Heart”
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet of 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 the LORD and put their trust in Him. Psalm 40:2-3
Let us look at the BENEFITS of coming to God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and seeking His FORGIVENESS for our sins. And the ability to become one of His Children. To RECEIVE His SALVATION and an ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN.
The Psalmist, David tells us that God CAN and WILL deliver the one, with the REPENTANT HEART, from the SLIMY PIT of their SINS and will bring them UP and OUT of the MUD ad MIRE of a DEPRAVED HEART.
He will then set their FEET on the SOLID ROCK, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and give them a STEADFAST, SURE FOUNDATION, on which to STAND. Then He will put a NEW SONG in their MOUTH, a HYMN of PRAISE and DELIVERANCE, to JESUS for His ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, and for giving them HOPE and ASSURANCE of ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN. And being able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS. There is NO WAY to ESCAPE, after your there, its TOO LATE.
When this takes place in a person’s life, they become a NEW CREATURE, a DIFFERENT PERSON, and that is why they can sing a NEW SONG. Because, their OLD DESIRES and SINFUL WAYS are gone, and they will experience a NEWNESS of LIFE. A life with HOPE and ASSURANCE, LOVE and PEACE. This will cause many of their acquaintances’ heads to turn, and some will see this MIRACLE, and it might even bring them to a point in their lives, where they will FEAR or REVERANCE the ALMIGHTY GOD, and put their TRUST in Him also.
Wouldn’t it be GREAT if you were the instrument that God would use in bringing them to put their TRUST in Him? So, why not let this happen for YOU and THEM. In order to do that, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and let Him DELIVER you out of the SLIMY PIT of SIN, and LIFT you UP from the MUD and MIRE of a DEPRAVED HEART, and to set your feet on a STEADFAST, FIRM, and SURE FOUNDATION. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
