- Psalm 40:1-3
For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; He turned to me and heard my cry.
2 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.
3 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.
I posted this yesterday - but today it was gone - so I'll try a shorter version.
Examine the promises in this passage. You're in a "pit" covered knee deep in mud and mire and you're sinking fast. You can't move or get out . You cry out (in prayer) to God and HE TURNS to YOU... and hears your cry. And HE takes action.
Look at the pattern here...
