Stuck in the Mud

by | May 5, 2012 | Purpose & Identity

Then took they Jeremiah and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison.-.-.-.-And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire. —Jeremiah 38:6

Jeremiah was persecuted and imprisoned on several occasions, and finally left to die in a dank, wet cistern. After years of faithfully preaching the Word of God, he was tossed into a pit of mud from which there was no escape. But God used an unlikely method to rescue him—an Ethiopian eunuch and some rotten rags (Jeremiah 38:11).

God may not rescue you the way you plan. He may not act when you expect Him to act. But He is never early and never late. God always acts at the appointed time to deliver you. Stand firm and wait on Him. When you are at the end of your rope, hold on to His Word and cling to His promises.

When you feel like the enemy has overpowered you and the world is against you, always remember that God has not forgotten you. He has given us His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6).

You may be up to your neck in problems and so deep in debt you cannot see the light of day, but get ready-.-.-.-your redemption draweth nigh.

Lord, I am holding on for You. Though I am stuck in the mud
and surrounded by difficulty, I know that You will never leave
nor forsake me. You alone are my salvation
and the lifter of my head. Amen.
