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

Be assured that God hears our prayers of desperation. The question is: “Are we desperate enough to call on Him?” Do we rely on Him more than we do ourselves? That’s where it starts. We must admit our need of God. When we come to the end of ourselves, we are in perfect position for God to move. Keep praying and trusting in Him. This leads to…


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. (Verse 2 )

When God revives us, He wants us to let other people know about it. As we share our story, they can trust in the LORD. As the Psalmist later writes in verse 10:

I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart;
I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation;
I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth
From the great assembly. (Psalm 40:10)

Don’t hide your light under a basket, let it shine before men (Matthew 5:14-15) . God has heard my prayers. He has revived me. Now, I pray God uses my testimony to lead others to believe in Him.

On March 1912, while awaiting the photo developing process to finish, Miles picked up his Bible. It fell open to John 20.
