"From the Pit of Despair to Solid Ground"


“From the Pit of Despair to Solid Ground”


He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire.  He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.   Psalm 40:2


At some time or another, we find ourselves in HARD situations.  Situations that bog us down, as if we were in a SLIMY PIT of MUD and MIRE.  And we feel like we will be totally OVERCOME with DESPAIR and NO WAY to ESCAPE.  King David found himself to be in such a situation, and his ONLY HELP was to CRY out to the LORD GOD, and so he did, and he WAITED PATIENTLY for the LORD’S HELP, and God heard David’s Cry and LIFTED him OUT of the PIT of DESPAIR and He released him from the MUD and MIRE. God set his FEET on SOLID GROUND and STEADIED David as he WALKED along.


Not only did God RESCUE David from his DILEMMA, but He ESTABLISHED him on the SOLID ROCK.  He STEADIED him so he would NOT be at risk being caught in the PIT of DESPAIR.  David says that God gave him a NEW SONG to sing.  And that MANY will see what the LORD GOD has done and will put their TRUST in Him.  David proclaims the JOYS of those who TRUST the LORD, who have NO CONFIDENCE in the PROUD or the WICKED.  He says: “O LORD my GOD, you have performed MANY WONDERS for us.  Your plans for us are too numerous to list.  YOU have NO equal.  If I tried to tell of ALL Your WONDERFUL DEEDS, I would NEVER come to the end of them.”   Are you in a PIT of SIN, LOSTNESS and DESPAIR?


If you are, you can be delivered, if you will CRY out to the ALMIGTY GOD and SEEK Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART and CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS, God’s ONLY SON died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION and allow Him to LIFT you out of the MUD and MIRE of the PIT of DESPAIR and SET your feet on SOLID GROUND, and to STEADY you as you LIVE for HIM throughout, an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and to be able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS.  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s WAITING and COMING SOON!!!
