Psalm 40:2, NKJV
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps.
We all face things that are trying to push us down today. Thoughts will tell you, "You'll never get well. This setback has ruined your finances. You'll always struggle with this addiction." Don't believe those lies. No more saying, "It's never going to change." Rather, you need to say with the apostle Paul, "The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives inside me." The forces of darkness did their best to stop Jesus, but they couldn't keep Him from rising. That tells me that nothing you face can keep you from your purpose--no pandemic, no setback, no layoff. The enemy may have done his best, but his best will never be enough.
You may feel as though you're down in a pit. The good news is that the Most High God will lift you out. He's about to free you from that addiction. He's about to turn the medical report around. He's about to open new doors, bring new opportunities, new relationships. The pit is not your destiny. Get ready to rise.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that any pit I find myself pushed down into can never stop the purpose You put in my heart. Thank You that no force of darkness could stop Jesus from rising from the dead, and I have His Spirit living in me. I declare that You are lifting me up and setting my feet on a rock. In Jesus' Name, Amen
