The Pits

When we are in the pit, do we decorate and order furniture to make it comfortable there? No! Do we settle in and accept this as the best existence we can have? Remember that we are not created to live in pits. Those temporary snares do not change us into pit dwellers. Our Redeemer already transformed us into new creations. A pit should not change us back.

From the pits, we look for a rescue. We are calling on the Redeemer to get your life back. Or even better, as Psalm 103 mentions, praise Him for a redeemed life. Better than the one you had before.
Listen to this list of benefits: forgiveness,healing, redemption, love, compassion, satisfaction, youth. . .good things.

Take a look at Psalm 103:2-6:
Praise, the Lord, O my soul; and forget none of his benefits- who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
