Psalm 40

“I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart; I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation” (v10).  The psalmist knew that one way to thank God for His deliverance was to spread the great news to others.  So, he told the story of what God had done for him: “He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure” (v2).  His testimony glorified God and encouraged others (v3).

“Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord” (v3).  We are God’s witnesses to one another and the world, as we tell the truth about His great love.
