David’s Cry! God’s Answer
Ps 40:1 ¶ To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
Read chapters 34-40 of Psalms first to see what was in David’s heart.
He chose to wait upon God and with patience. He did not hide his sin and he confess it to God and call it his sin and cried out to God.
Our LORD and Savior heard his cry and took notice of it and did something about it. Will he hear a heart of a repented sinner? Amen! Will God incline unto me? Will God set in order and adjust what needs to be done? David waited upon God patiently for God to work. He did not have a better idea about how to handle his circumstance from the sowing and reaping process that God established.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
We need to take heed to what God’s word says!
Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
Amen God will have mercy on all who will call upon him! Yes there are the after effects of sin but God is able to bring the sinner out.
Ps 40:2 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.
Ps 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
The help is there by Christ who is in you, my feet upon The Rock, established my direction, following Christ, new song in my mouth, even praise to my God, no more guilt. This will be seen of all men and it will have an effect. The fear of God to others will be seen of others and many will trust the LORD JESUS as their Savior.
