Get Out Of The Pit

I am going to begin a new book today(in a few minutes)entitled "Get Out of the Pit" by Beth Moore. According to the back cover of the book it is based on Psalm 40. To begin preparing to read the book I have been reading Psalm 40 for a couple of days. I found this book recently at a local bookstore for $4. I thought is might be a good read for me and to loan out to some of the ladies at church.

Psalm 40:2-3 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.And he hath put a new song in my mouth...

Psalm 40:5
Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

I don't know about you but I was in a pit of sin and dead religion. According this this worlds standards I was not to bad, but it was Gods standards that I was judged by and my sins were insurmountable and anything good within me was as filthy rags. I was as bad as the worst murderer, robber, or sinner that you can imagine. But God brought me out of that horrible pit of miry clay and muck where I was sinking more and more as the days went by. He has set me upon the ROCK and put a new song in my heart and established my ways.

I still struggle with many things in my life and have to go to God daily to help me fight against the flesh and to walk daily close to HIM.

Praise His Name, He is a Good and Righteous Patience God. He has done so many good and wonderful things for me and in my life that they can not be numbered. I shared with you my heart today so what is on your heart.

Redeemed By HIS SON

I love Psalm 40, the whole thing. Who I am kidding, I love all of the Psalms. It's good to be reminded where we came from. It helps to remind me anyway about what I should be now.
