Psalm 30:1-5 (NASB)

 

I will extol You, O LORD, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me. 

 

O LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.

 

O LORD, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.

 

Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name.

 

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy {comes} in the morning.

 

 

 

Yesterday I wrote about renewing your mind on God’s Word so it could help us handle hard situations.  Sometimes the way God wants us to handle them, and what we are taught to do in His Word, is to cry out to Him to help us.  There are times when we are the ones to begin acting on our own behalf . . . and there are times when we are to step back and let God work on our behalf.

 

Sometimes we have to stop trying to climb to Him and allow Him to lift us up . . .

 

It is hard to remember that this too shall pass when we are in the middle of whatever this is.  But it always does pass, even if it takes a long time.  And in the morning we are able to give a shout of joy!  Before we were crying out to God to help us – in the morning we can give a shout of joy and praise Him and tell others of what he’s done for us – how he’s pulled us out of our pit . . . or kept us from falling into the pit when we were teetering on the edge.

 

Yesterday, I cried out to God and he answered me through my friends ministering to me.  My day got successively better and when I got home my husband and I were able to resolve things.  I shed tears last night but went to bed with a peaceful heart.  And this morning I woke up with joy in my heart and a shout of praise on my lips for my God who has once again pulled me up out of the pit.

 

Remember, friends, that when we are in the pit or close to falling in, God is still there.  He is listening and watching and even protecting although sometimes it doesn’t seem like it.  And he is faithful to us!  So much more faithful than we are to him . . . Lean on him and ask him for the endurance you will need until you can wake up to your morning!
