Words of Comfort: Psalm 40

"I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord" (Psalm 40:1-3). Here is the testimony of the Christian. He heard my cry and brought me out of the pit and miry clay of sin. Its power held us captive until we were rescued by the grace of God. We are no longer sinking into death, but our feet have been planted upon the sure foundation of the Rock of Ages. God has established our goings. He has set before us a path of righteousness with a new song of praise on our lips. May many see the reality of that walk, hear the truth of the gospel and fear God enough to repent and trust in Jesus.
