What You Will Say When You Are Saved, Part 2

I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the LORD. — Psalm 40:1-3

Think about it. Do you like being in the slimy pit? Do you like the mud and mire?

What You Will Say When You Are Saved

In that day you will say:
"I will praise you, O LORD.
Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
and you have comforted me.
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation."
With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation. –Isaiah 12:1-3

If you are not yet a Christian, this is speaking to you. Although it was written 2,700 years ago, it is telling you what you will say when you are saved by His grace. You will wonder why you delayed so long before you called on His name.
