down in the mud

Psalms (book2) - 1

down in the mud

Psalm 69:13-15 (JDV)

Psalm 69:13 But as for me, Yahveh, my prayer to you is for a time of favor. In your abundant, covenant faithfulness, God, answer me with your sure rescue.
Psalm 69:14 Rescue me from the miry mud; don’t let me sink. Let me be rescued from those who hate me and from the deep water.
Psalm 69:15 Don’t let the floodwaters sweep over me or the deep swallow me up; don’t let the Pit close its mouth over me.

down in the mud

What do you do when you are down in the mud, and you think you are going to sink? Do what David did. Cry out to God in prayer. He is invested in you. He gave his Son to die in your place on Calvary’s cross. He sent his Holy Spirit to empower you for a mission to reach the nations with his gospel. David was down in the mud, but he had no intention of staying there. He called out to the God who had rescued him in the past. He called out to the God who has a purpose for his life. David knew that he did not have the power himself to pull himself out of the pit. But he knew someone who does have that power, and so do we.

Lord, don’t let us sink!
