September 8

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” Psalm 40:2 (NIV)

Sometimes, because of the circumstances in our world we might wonder if where we are standing is a secure or safe place to stand – in God it is. Are you not glad that God gave David the gift of expressing praise? We are glad too, that David knew by experience how wonderful God is. Have you believed in Jesus as your Savior? If so, these words are a description of your experience, too. You’re out of the mire, standing on a rock. How wonderful to have a firm place to stand, something solid to believe in. No matter what happens, we do not need to vacillate. Circumstances may change but our God never does. Friends may leave us or disappoint us, but God never does. We can depend on His love and His care for us. Isn’t that like standing on a rock?
