Its the Pits, but that’s Ok

Then they took Jeremiah and cast him into the cistern of Malchijah the king’s son, which was in the court of the guardhouse; and they let Jeremiah down with ropes. Now in the cistern there was no water but only mud, and Jeremiah sank into the mud. Jeremiah 38:6

When he stood up for what God had said, Jeremiah suffered. They through him into a pit. While the muddy pit must have seemed like a curse from God, it actually was a blessing. Had the cistern been full of water, he would have drowned before he was rescued.

We had a phrase in the 80s we used to say when someone asked how we are doing: “its the pits” meant, not so good! When my feet are in the muddy mire, do I see it as a blessing from God? How is my optimism in the midst of problems or persecution? Mostly good.

God, as the disciples asked Jesus, ‘increase our faith’… oh I desire the same. Continue to grow me so I always see things from your perspective. I am so grateful that you are in control of it all. I bless Your name Yahweh!
