One More Time
“He brought me up”
What horrible pit are you sinking in today? Have you been trapped by the quicksand of sin? Perhaps you are in the mire of frustration and wonder if you will ever rise again.
Though Jonah had failed the Lord and was in the deep of defeat, he said, “Yet I will look again unto Thy holy temple.” God heard his cry. He then declared, “Salvation (or deliverance) is of the LORD.” God not only delivers us when we trust Christ as Savior, but He continues to deliver us throughout the Christian life.
Psalm 40 applies to any time we have lost our song and are waiting patiently in prayer for divine intervention.
The Lord Jesus Christ has sought us out and brought us up many times over. Do not let your last prayer be your last prayer. Do not let the last time you read your Bible be the last time you read your Bible. Do not let the last time you went to church be the last time you go to church. “Look again” one more time to Him for deliverance.
“I waited patiently for the LORD; and
He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.”
