O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. Psalms 30:3-4
Have you ever mumbled through Sunday worship because, well, you just weren’t feeling it?
In this Psalm David remembers the thing that came before his praise; a pit. David remembers the fact that God rescued him from destruction, which caused him to respond with gratitude and worship.
Here is the point, your pit comes before your praise. Only when you know, feel, and remember God’s great rescue in your life, will lift your voice and praise His glorious name.
So the next time you’re having trouble getting into worship, remember the problem may not be with the drums or the song choice. The problem may be your own forgetful heart. Because when you forget the pit God pulled you from, you will forget the praise He is due.
So next Sunday remember your pit and sing with fireworks exploding in your heart, because you’re not still in it!
