“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 and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him” (Psalm 40:1-3).
Many times, we have let the Lord down. Time and time again, he has lifted us up again. Left to ourselves, we built our lives on “sand.” There is, however another way – a much better way of life. We can build on Jesus – the “rock” (Matthew 7:24-27). When our lives are built on him, our feet are set on a new pathway. We’re travelling with Jesus – on to the glory of eternal life. Let us praise God for his great salvation!
