Worth The Wait
I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:1-3 (NRSV)
A miry bog is mushy, sticky, uncomfortable, hard to navigate, and extremely difficult to move through. A rock is a solid place, often piercing above the ground or sea. A miry bog and a rock are in direct opposition of each other. Which means God can take your situation and turn it completely around. He is the originator of the great exchange. Give him your lack and he will give you plenty. Give him your pain and he will give you healing. Give him your troubles and he will give you rest.
Be comforted today in knowing that God will rescue you from whatever pit that is trying to swallow you up. If it is the pit of poverty, God will provide. If it is the pit of loneliness, God will be your companion. If it is the pit of mental anguish or condemning thoughts, God will deliver your mind and strengthen your heart. He will give you a spirit of praise in exchange for your spirit of heaviness. Whatever you need, wait on God for it to come to pass.
When you wait on God he is able to elevate you above your situation and place you on higher ground. He is faithful to meet you right where you are and take you where he desires for you to be. He knows your every concern and his loving care for you will rescue you every time. Do not quit before you get your breakthrough. Don’t give up and don’t move in haste. Wait patiently for God. He is worth the wait. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
