Your Pit May Be Your Purpose

We read in Psalm 40:2-3, David writes about a symbolic pit, one that maybe you feel like you are in now.

Notice, that pit is not the end. It is not the final chapter of David’s story, nor is it the final chapter of your story.

  • It is only the beginning of the next chapter, where God hears your cry, just like God heard Jesus praying for Lazarus.
  • It’s where He lifts you out of the mud you are sinking in, just like Jeremiah.
  • It’s where He sets your feet on solid ground and steadies your steps as He did for Gideon and Benaiah.
  • It’s where He puts a new song in your heart, just like He did for Paul and Silas.
  • It’s where many will see what He has done and be amazed like Joseph’s brothers and King Nebuchadnezzar and Paul’s jailer.

And…it just may be where you find your purpose.

Portion of devotional: Purpose in the Pit

“…He to put a new song in my mouth; many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”

In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}
