I am Living Proof

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death.

116 I love the Lord, because He hears
My voice and my supplications.
Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
The cords of death encompassed me
And the terrors of Sheol came upon me;
I found distress and sorrow.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord:
“O Lord, I beseech You, save my life!”

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
Yes, our God is compassionate.
The Lord preserves the simple;
I was brought low, and He saved me.
Return to your rest, O my soul,
For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
For You have rescued my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
My feet from stumbling.
I shall walk before the Lord
In the land of the living.
10 I believed when I said,
“I am greatly afflicted.”
11 I said in my alarm,
“All men are liars.”

12 What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits toward me?
13 I shall lift up the cup of salvation
And call upon the name of the Lord.
14 I shall pay my vows to the Lord,
Oh may it be in the presence of all His people.
15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of His godly ones.
16 O Lord, surely I am Your servant,
I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid,
You have loosed my bonds.
17 To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
18 I shall pay my vows to the Lord,
Oh may it be in the presence of all His people,
19 In the courts of the Lord’s house,
In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!

This Psalm reads like my very own testimony.  I need add no words to it.  Our Precious God is compassionate beyond measure.  He truly works all things together for good.  A beautiful friend often says, “Hang around for the rest of the story.”  All I can say is if you are despairing right now, if you are suffering and wrestling with thoughts of ending it all…Don’t.  Please give your life over to God through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.  He really does work all things together for good.  He really does bring Beauty from the Ashes of our ruined lives.  He is truly the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.  He truly is the God of Second chances.  I am Living Proof.
