Psalm 40:1-2 ” I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. 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.”

“He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made.” (Psalm 7:15) The Hebrew word for “hole” in this verse, and “slimy pit” in the verses above is identical… of describing death as a giant pit. That’s because as much as we hate to admit it…most of the time the consequences we face from disobeying God are of our own making…we stumble into serious predicaments with no one to blame but ourselves. But the Lord is there, ever ready to bring us out if we will just turn to Him. And He will be faithful to place our feet on the firm foundation of Christ …or as Isaiah 26:4 tells us, “The Lord is the Rock eternal.” or Psalm 19:14, “O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Today, let us look to the steadfast certainty of standing on the Rock of Jesus Christ.
