Psalm 71 verses 20 and 21: “You, who have shown me great and severe troubles, shall revive me again, and bring me up again from the depths of the earth. You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.” You know, my friend, these words couldn’t have been written except by somebody who has known what it’s like to be down and has had the pleasure of experiencing the hand of God lifting them up again.
I know what that feels like; I’ve been there. I’ve been there more than once in my lifetime. I remember being so sick one time that I cried out to God, and God heard my prayer. And He lifted me out of a situation that could have overwhelmed me in the natural, and He revived me again and brought me up again from the depths of the earth. He increased the ministry that He gave to me, and brought me comfort on every side.
Please, please, it’s time to pray.
