15For I am waiting for you, O Lord. You must answer for me, O Lord my God. 16I prayed, “Don’t let my enemies gloat over me or rejoice at my downfall.”Psalm 38:15-16
Once again, I find scripture speaks truth the best. Many times I have cried out to God to remember me, to save me, to answer my questions. I implored him to keep my enemies from triumphing over me.
1I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. 2He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. 3He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord.Psalm 40:1-3
My patience is rewarded, God rescues me and puts me in a quiet, peaceful place. Do you ever wonder why God does this for you and I? Is it for our comfort? Certainly, he loves us and wants his children to be at peace. But I think there is more than that.
He wants our testimony to point to him. He wants others to put their trust in him. When I experience God’s goodness, I ought to sing it in the streets! Tell others of his amazing deeds; let them see what he has done. Then they will put their trust in him!
Have an amazing weekend with a new song on your lips and a hymn of praise for his goodness!
