Salvation 10

The Aim of this short devotional study is to discover the extent of God’s salvation to one who cries out to Him.


Psalms 40:1-3

1  I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry.

2  He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps.

3  He has put a new song in my mouth– Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD.


Slowly read these three verses and answer the questions:

  1. When you read “horrible pit… miry clay” what do you think / feel? What is David trying to relay with these words?
  2. What did David do for God to rescue / save him?
  3. What was the process of God’s full rescue / salvation of David?
  4. What was the result of God’s rescue / salvation of David to others?
  5. What was the natural result God’s rescue / salvation within David?


  1. Memorize this short text. (Pray it repeatedly until you know it)
  2. David’s rescue / salvation lead to praise of God which attracted people attention, worship and faith in God. What work which God has completed in your life which need to be published in a way to cause people to trust and worship God?


What situation in your life feels like you being stuck “in a horrible pit [of] miry clay”?  Cry out to God now – and persevere in it – waiting for his complete restoration.  He did it for David – he will do it for you.
