He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay; and set my feet upon a rock. (Psalm 40:2)
Have you ever been in a situation where you need rescued, maybe you were drowning or trapped on a mountainside or lost in the woods? Maybe you have needed a spiritual rescue, you were drowning in despair, or lost in the secular world with no help. Has your rescuer appeared only to have you try to help or even struggle against the offer? Ultimately the rescue was not successful, right. What happened when you didn't fight, didn't try to help? Your rescuer was able to bring you to safety, safely. You were able to rest and recover. God wants to be your rescuer. He doesn't need your help, He doesn't want you to struggle against His efforts or do it on your own. If you rest knowing all is safe in His hands He will be your rescuer.
