Psalm 40:1 - 3   Thought/Prayer:  Up and Out.  Topics:  2 at end.

“I Waited Patiently for the Lord
I waited patiently for Yahweh. He turned to me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay. He set my feet on a rock, and gave me a firm place to stand.
He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God. Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in Yahweh.”  WEB   (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

This Psalm is attributed to King David.  But could it not be attributed to any Christian who follows Christ as David did Jehovah God?  This David is the one from whose lineage the Messiah, Christ, would come.  And yet here he is talking of his need for God to bring him up out of some miry clay mud, a horrible pit.  Really?  How is it that the progenitor of the Savior of the world could possibly find himself in such a mucky circumstance?

We should be glad that he could.  “Why”, you say?  The “because” is that David, beloved of God, was made human by God.  And no human ever on Earth, except Jesus Christ, was ever perfect.  And since every earthly Christian realizes imperfection in themselves, we should thank God that there is hope . . . hope when we see that someone as important as David to God’s eternal plan, was imperfect and in a pit:  but rescued.  How do we know that every Christian realizes his or her imperfection?  Because that is how we come to know Christ by realizing our need to be rescued.

The Bible is very candid about the flaws of those God used.  It’s a matter of the heart.  And the Lord certainly did place David on a firm place to stand.  So we can stand firm also after God rescues us from the clay pits we get ourselves into (as David did with Bathsheba’s husband Uriah [orchestrating his death]) or as others force us into no-pity pits.  God will bring us up and out.  Hallelujah.

Topics:  Pray to be able to direct others going through the pits of life.  Help us to let them see how faithful God is to pull up and out . . . anyone who asks . . . from any miry clay.
