Devotion 1-22-24, Psalms 40:1 - 3- "I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear And will trust in the Lord." The psalms are particularly important for understanding how we relate to God. David is an excellent example of one who, "tells it like it is." Any scripture that fits may become your personal testimony of who you were, who you are, and who you will be. This scripture is my testimony. I knew of God, but He was not my God. God intervened and brought me out of the pit of destruction. I was not able to remove myself; it was God's action, not mine. He now has placed me on a solid footing where I may now acknowledge that He is my personal Savior and Lord. I may now pursue my knowledge and understanding of Him. I may choose daily to be His. I may sing praises to His holy name and proclaim His love and mercy to all people God brings across my path. God has loved me and saved my soul from the pit of hell. He will do that for any and all who will call upon Him. Verses 4-5- "How blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust, And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood. Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders which You have done, And Your thoughts toward us; There is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them, They would be too numerous to count."
