From her first breath of fresh air beyond the pit, it has never been enough for Beth Moore to be free. This best-selling author and Bible teacher who has opened the riches of Scripture to millions longs for you to be free as well—to know the Love and Presence that are better than life and the power of God’s Word that defies all darkness.
Beth’s journey out of the pit has been heart-rending. But from this and the poetic expressions of Psalm 40 has come the reward: a new song for her soul, given by her Saviour and offered to you in Get Out of That Pit—friend to friend. This is Beth’s most stirring message yet of the sheer hope, utter deliverance, and complete and glorious freedom of God:
I waited patiently for the Lord
He turned to me and heard my cry
He lifted me out of the slimy pit
He set my feet on a rock
He put a new song in my mouth
It is a story, a song—a salvation—that you can know too.
My rating: 4 stars
My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
All of us at one time or another find ourselves in a pit, whether it is self-made, or completely out of our control. You know, those horrible situations or habits that we find ourselves in or doing that we can't get out of no matter how much we struggle. And it really is like quicksand, the more we struggle, the harder we fight, the deeper we seem to get into it. Sometimes, we need to stop fighting, and hold our hands out for God's help. This book shows us that even in the Bible, pits were very real, scary things, but that with God's help, we can rise above every single one of them that we find ourselves in.
The author goes into three different ways we find ourselves in pits: the ones that we are thrown into, the ones that we sort of end up in without much idea of how we got into it, and then the one pit that we wholeheartedly fling ourselves into.
It doesn't matter how deep, how hopeless, how dark and slimy that pit is that you are in right now, you can get out of it with God's help. God will help you get out. That is the lesson of this book.
