_ 102114 From the pit

Good day everyone. There are some people reading this message right now who are in a “pit” experience and wonder how you got there and also when and how you are going to get out. God is going to bring you out as soon as He is through using the experience to strengthen you. Let the message bless you today.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, help us to realize that the “good news” is that You are discoverable, that You are all that Jesus declared You to be. Through Christ we can glimpse the very heart of You, and know that You are a God of love, hope and strength; through Him, we know that we can trust You with our world, and our lives. Help us in turn to be trustworthy, to let You know in countless ways each day that You can rely on us. For this we thank You and give praise in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Let’s eat.

From the Pit to the Crown

In the Pit

Isaiah 24:20-22

The earth staggers like a drunk. It trembles like a tent in a storm. It falls and will not rise again, for the guilt of its rebellion is very heavy. In that day the LORD will punish the gods in the heavens and the proud rulers of the nations on earth. They will be rounded up and put in prison. They will be shut up in prison and will finally be punished.

Sin Out of the Pit – Grace Set on a Rock

Psalm 40:1-3

I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.

Safety Set among Princes – Dignity Occupying the Throne

1 Samuel 2

Then Hannah prayed: “My heart rejoices in the LORD! The LORD has made me strong. Now I have an answer for my enemies; I rejoice because you rescued me. No one is holy like the LORD! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. “Stop acting so proud and haughty! Don’t speak with such arrogance! For the LORD is a God who knows what you have done; he will judge your actions. The bow of the mighty is now broken, and those who stumbled are now strong. Those who were well fed are now starving, and those who were starving are now full. The childless woman now has seven children, and the woman with many children wastes away. The LORD gives both death and life; he brings some down to the grave but raises others up. The LORD makes some poor and others rich; he brings some down and lifts others up. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, placing them in seats of honor. For all the earth is the LORD’s, and he has set the world in order.

Quote of the Day

We never test the resources of God until we attempt the impossible. His resources are not a pond drained. Nor a well capable of being pumped dry; Not a river that drought can diminish; Not a reservoir that runs dry. And in such faith – a reckless faith – Jesus takes the keenest delight. There is nothing that so pleases Him as the most daring and reckless and romantic faith. He is never so joyed as when we trust Him with a mad abandon.
