I waited patiently for the LORD. 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 the LORD.
God heard my cry when I was in despair due to my behavior. I was in a horrible pit of hopeless darkness of sin. God took me out of there and gave me hope (Psalm 40:1-2). He showed me mercy and grace and brought me to Jesus. He showed me the truth of the Bible. He made my life new.
John saw God’s people singing a new song (Revelation 5:9, 14:3). You will be one of them someday if your life here on earth belongs to Jesus. But you don’t have to wait for heaven to sing to Jesus. Sing songs of praise today and every day for all the blessings He has given you—and especially for the gift of salvation.
Are you going through a difficult time? Is your heart in a dark place? Call out to Jesus. He will listen to you and will bring you out of these things and give you a firm and rock-solid place to stand.
Pray: God, pull me away from all that is dark and sinful. Pull me closer to You. Set my feet on the rock of Jesus and give me songs of praise to sing to You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
