Today’s selection — Psalm 40 — was suggested by one of our visitors:
I waited patiently for the Lord,
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me up out of the slimy pit,
out of the muck and mire;
he set my feet upon 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.
I love this Psalm. Each line reminds of what I should focus on daily.
WAIT patiently for God. I need to walk with Him, not run ahead on my own.
He HEARS our cries. What an amazing thing that the creator of the universe listens to us.
He LIFTS us up out of our slime pits of sin and misery.
He sets our feet on a ROCK. He’s our firm foundation.
He gives us a new SONG of joy in our hearts.
How could anyone who sees God’s awesome transforming power at work in our lives not “fear and put their trust in the Lord“?
