David said he “waited patiently” for God to act – and sometimes that’s hard for us to do. But in time God did answer, and God lifted him out of the mire and put his feet on a rock – a picture of what happens when we give our lives to Jesus Christ. He alone is the solid, unshakeable rock on which to build our lives (see 1 Peter 2:6-8).
If you’re in a “pit” right now, don’t give up. Instead, turn to Christ and find in Him the solid foundation you need.
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock.
