Do you feel like you’re in a pit?
You are NOT alone.
Many of us throughout our lives can feel like we are in a pit. A pit is a dark place. Sometimes we don’t know why certain things happen in our lives. We are without answers. We just can’t figure it out. We blame ourselves and try to somehow reconcile why we are in this place. What did i do to deserve this ?
I’ve got a wonderful word for you. It is not your destiny to stay stuck in the pit. Let me explain in a personal sense of scripture what a pit actually is: A pit is a place where you feel empty of everything. Not just physical but a spiritual condition. It can also be emotional condition. It is a place of being isolated and separated from everything.
The use of the word pit in a Hermetical biblical sense is the following: The word pit is used seven times in Genesis 37. The author of Genesis, Moses, uses this as a literary device. This is where he uses pit seven times: Genesis 𝟑𝟕:𝟐𝟎, 𝟑𝟕:𝟐𝟐, 𝟑𝟕:𝟐𝟒, 𝟑𝟕:𝟐𝟒 𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐁, 𝟑𝟕:𝟐𝟖, 𝟑𝟕:𝟐𝟗. The question is: why did he use pit seven times? Seven is the biblical symbol of Release, Return, And Recovery. Seven is also a symbol of restoration after devastation. When Joseph was lowered into that pit, God had a plan for his release and for his recovery. For Joseph as Genesis 50 tells us, God’s purpose for allowing Joseph to be in the pit was that he would ultimately be sold into slavery in Egypt and years later become ruler over the greatest empire of that era. God was going to use his expertise, integrity and faithfulness for His glory. Genesis 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
God promises there will be territory for our tears. Psalm 118:5 says, “ i called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.” Psalm 4:1 says, “Hear me when i call, o God of my rightousness: thouhast enlarged me when i was in distress” This means your territory, place of promise, can only be increased if you are going through a momentary trial like a “pit experience.” The scripture tells us in 2 Corinthians 4:17, “For pur light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;” The blood of Jesus bought your exit out of the pit. In Zechariah 9:11 the promise is “As for thee also, by the blood of they covenant i have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit where in is no water.”
Get ready for expansions. In conclusion: When Jacob, Joseph’s father, went to his eternal reward in heaven, Joseph sought permission from Pharaoh to leave Egypt and bury him in the land of Canaan. He had to pass by the pit he was thrown into many years before he became ruler over Egypt. He stopped and praised over his pit. I claim by the word of God and declare to you today you will look back on this hour and praise over your pit. What God is going to do with and for you will be exceedingly above all what you could ask or think.
Praise over your pit
