Praise Him in the Pit…

I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings. And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God; many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.  Psalm 40:1-4 Even in the pit, Praise Him.  He is there in the pit with us… Just like He was in the lions den, in the belly of a whale, and in the firey furnace.
