Topic: DEALING WITH MISTAKES…Part 4.
Text : Psalms 40:1-4
1: I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2: He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3: And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.
Verse 2 of our passage is what everyone should understand, it talked about the process of moving from grass to grace. This is one scripture that has been a blessing to my life, if there is anything for which I appreciate God it is the understanding of his word, and here I am sharing one of those scriptural passages that transformed my life.
‘ He brought me up out of an horrible pit ‘, this is a low class, the word horrible shows it was a terrible state of life, it was a point of suffering and struggling. You just imagine how terrible it is to be in a pit, let alone a horrible pit. The Psalmist must have written this Psalm when he got a great deliverance. Horrible pit connotes terrible condition.
‘ Out of the miry clay ‘ by miry clay he meant slippery soil, if you have ever walked on a slippery soil you will understand what he was saying; it was a state of difficult movement, his movement was not free, it was a state of moving front and back, as he lifts the other leg the one on the ground shifts back and if care is not taken he will fall. That was the state of many people in their christian life; they can’t stand for the Lord, they keep rising and falling. That’s the state some people are in their finances, before he comes out of one financial crisis another will set in. And now the Psalmist is saying, he brought me out of the horrible pit, out of the miry, he set my feet upon the rock and established my goings.
This is my focus here: he set my feet on the rock and established my goings, this means I no longer walk on slippery ground, my feet are now on the rock, no more going front and back, no more rising and falling of my faith, the next statement will amaze you; he established my goings, this means my movement is confirmed by him, how can I stumble? Why should I be scared? My legs can no longer slip, no more mistake on my journey to destiny.
The Psalmist was basically sharing the testimony of what God has done for him, but he did something before this testimony, look at it in verse 1:
I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
Waiting patiently for the Lord, seeking his face in prayer and fasting; my waiting was to receive from him, he wouldn’t mind how long it takes God to answer him, he kept waiting patiently for the Lord.
Seeking God’s face patiently is the key here; today is another day to wait upon the Lord, as we seek his face in prayer and fasting, the miraculous will happen. God bless you.
* Change my story for better oh Lord.
* No more rising and falling in Jesus name.
