Out of the Pit TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on the solid ground and steadied me as I walked along." (Psalm 40:2, NLT) TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria Everyone goes through seasons when they feel like they are in a pit. That pit can be a frustration or disappointment or a feeling of discouragement, despair or hopelessness. And maybe you can't see a way out, but you've got to know that God is still with you, and He will make a way where there seems to be no way. Remember, God will never waste anything you go through in life. If you'll keep the right attitude, He'll turn that situation around for your good. It doesn't matter how you got there, whether it was by your own poor choices or maybe someone else treated you unfairly, God wants to use that situation to do a work in you. He'll take that evil and turn it around for your good. You may be uncomfortable at times, but you've got to know that you are growing, and God is building your character. Today, make the decision to shake off any negative, self-defeating mindsets. Choose to cooperate with God. Trust that He is preparing you for promotion. As you keep an attitude of faith, expectancy and thanksgiving, He will lift you up and set you on the solid path of victory He has in store for you! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I lift my eyes to You for my help comes from You. Thank You for doing a work in my life. Thank You for using every situation in my life for my good. I bless You today no matter what is going on around me, knowing that You have a good plan for me in Jesus' name. Amen.

Dear Lord, There is no joy like the joy You give. There is nothing better than being restored to a right relationship with You O God! He prays to God and finds favor with him, he sees God's face and shouts for joy; he is restored by God to his righteous state (Job 33:26). I long to see my daughter wearing "a garment of praise instead of a spirit of rebellion against You and Your Word.." I have prayed for her, even before she was born, and now I will "not give up" praying for her (Galations 6:9). Today I "live by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7) as I wait for her to turn to You. "Shine forth" (Psalm 80:1), Father! By faith in You O Lord. I see Your face shining on my daughter, and she's looking at You with her beautiful and radiant face! May "everlasting joy" be ours, Father (Isaiah 61:7)!

Please pray for God to defend marriage through His people in Illinois. There are 7 days left to this legislative session. The supporters of counterfeit marriage are lobbying hard, including former President Bill Clinton and Pres. Obama. Pray that the Bride of Christ would be awakened to her duty, that we would repent before the Lord and seek His face-- then His hand--for mercy. Pray that God's people would take their positions and stand in this battle that belongs to the Lord.
