I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
      and he turned to me and heard my cry.
 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.
Psalms 40: 1-2

Reflect on this etire chapter in Psalms.  How many times have you found yourself in a pit?  It seems like the more you try to climb out, the more you slip on the mud and rocks and find yourself weary.  Why do you think that is?

If you’re trying to get out of the pit by yourself, you’re not only going to find yourself overly exhausted, but you’re going to find yourself still sitting right in the middle of that pit.  You’ve accomplished nothing by trying to get out on your own.  This scripture says to wait patiently for the Lord…

    It is so dark in a pit, you can see nothing, not even light sometimes. God knows how we feel when we are at that point, because He himself has seen the worst of times. He knows how desperate we feel and wants to rescue us but it is all a part of His blessed process to bring us out whole on the other side. So, wait and again I say wait. Our thoughts are not His thoughts and our ways are not His ways, but His are best! ALWAYS. I am waiting on the Lord as we speak in a darker place than I ever knew possible. However, just knowing that He knows the darkness and the fear I have is comfort because He takes no joy in my sorrow. I rest assured that He will soon deliver in His way.

      You’re right, Debbie, and I pray you find yourself out of the darkness soon. I have been in a dark place as well and understand the need for God’s light to shine. Sometimes I think we find that we’ve placed something in front of us where we can’t see his light shining. If we just sit still, he can remove what’s in front of us and lift us from the dark pit. If we end up with scrapes and bruises, we should be thankful for the fact that it could have been much worse. Thank you.
