One of the favorite scenes from comedies is the person in the pool reaching up for help and the helper then is pulled in with him. Truth be told many of us have experienced that scene whether on purpose or by accident. Once in both parties are in the same boat. Without someone being able to stand strong, nobody gets pulled out of the pool.
Oh beloved, God wants you to know this morning that He sees where you are. Drowning in a sea of lies from the enemy. Barely afloat, often times under the current. You’re worn out from making it on your own. You’ve tried to swim, tried to pull yourself up out of your gutter, your pit, your plight, but to no avail. Even in trying the waves have come higher and you know it’s just a matter of time till you’re done for.
But here comes the King! He steps from His place on High! He is coming to get you! He’s been offering His steady as a rock hand and His powerful right arm to you all along! You can reach up and come out of that pit. You are The King’s kid! You don’t have to wait till you’re able. You don’t have to get yourself out of the trouble. You are fashioned to be rescued because Jesus was sent to settle the issue for all times and give rescue to all who are perishing – whether before Christ saved you or after.
Rejoice, beloved, that you are so loved and so cared for that God will go to great steps to help you up. He won’t get in the pit with you! Hallelujah! He has great sympathy for you. He is the Glory and the Lifter of your head! Run to Him and thank Him as you walk in the Light of His rescue and relief!
Psalm 18:16. He reached down from heaven and rescued me; He drew me out of deep waters.
Psalm 40:2 He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.
Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear.
Hebrews 4:15-16 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
