“He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings, and He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”
Isn’t it marvelous that these words were written 1000 years before our Lord ever came to earth, yet they outline so clearly and so accurately the course that He would follow when He came. And today, 2000 years this side of the cross, we are faced with the marvel of the infinite God becoming a finite man.
The Word that was with God, and was God, became flesh and dwelt among us in order to reveal what God was like. And the message of that revelation is unquestionable and clear today. There is no other hope for mankind. But in Him! You and I are living in a day when men are afraid of what is coming to pass. The greatest thinkers of our time are looking forward, faced with problems that cannot be overcome, and they are giving us little hope. They are saying “If we don’t find a way out of this mess soon, it’s hopeless! We’ll never solve the problems that are facing us now!” They are telling us the problems that face the individual are beyond his ability to solve on his own—the bitterness, the boredom, the emptiness, the meaninglessness of life.
All of this simply bears confirmation in our day and to our hearts personally that this Psalm is telling the truth! There is no other hope for mankind than the Gospel of Jesus Christ! No way out of darkness. There is no way to break the power and the grip of this evil sickness over the human race. The Gospel has no rivals; it is absolutely without equal! It is the one way by which we can find what God intended man to have. “You are my help and my deliverer.” Psalms 40:17
