Do You Know Who Brought You Out?

Scripture Reference: Psalms 30 (KJV)

Psalms 30:1 A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David. I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me. 2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication. 9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth? 10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper. 11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

This is a Psalm and a Song used at the dedication of King David

It was a dedication of David’s temple

As I read this particular Psalm I feel that the temple that the writer had in mind when he wrote this was his body

However, although he wrote it for his body he dedicated it for the building

In (Verse 1 A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David. I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.) it is so interesting how the writer acknowledges the fact that his enemies wanted to literally destroy him and rejoice in his destruction.

Many of us are under the attack from our enemies and they literally want to destroy us yet we continue to treat them as if they are just playing with us

We are allowing the sinful and wicked thoughts from Satan to linger around in our minds as if somehow (in the end) Satan will have pity on us and spare our lives.

This is a silly concept, Satan hates you and there is not anything that you can do to change his mind

I was talking to a young Christian the other day and they said that when they deal with someone that doesn’t seem to like them the young christian said that they would simply continue to greet the other person daily. This would be in an effort to change the way the other person feels about them. The young Christian was adamant that if they continued to be nice then eventually the other person would have a change in heart and see it the Christian way. As I write and think about this, with people this could be true. However with Satan you can throw in the towel. He will never like you and he wants to destroy you as quickly and effectively as he can.

We need to be like the writer of this passage and realize that our enemies want to see us dead. Not only that but they want to rejoice over the fact that we are gone
