Saying something IS doing something.
Saying something will lead, will lead, will lead the way to doing in oneness with the Lord.
Back to Psalm 116:1
"I love Jehovah because He HEARS MY VOICE, my supplication, Because He inclines His ear to me; Therefore I will call upon Him all my days."
Like Peter the leading disciples, Ghost-of-a-Duke is eager to get up and start DOING for God. The first thing here this saint DID was get rescued from going under. He DID the overcoming of that which was about to swallow him up.
Be that temptation.
Be that just living the old life of the self.
Be that any number of maladies plaguing him, he first did the being saved from it by God to whom he called.
"The bonds of death encompassed me.
And the distress of Sheol fell upon me.
I fell into trouble and sorrow." (v.3)
Ring any bells?
"But I called upon the name of Jehovah, O Jehovah, I pray, deliver my soul.
Jehovah is gracious and righteous, Indeed God is compassionate. Jehovah preserves the simple.
I was brought low, an He saved me." (vs.4-6)
Someone will say " Oh, that is not doing something good."
Yes it is. That is beginning to depend upon the living God.
David learned to speak out to God in order to live in oneness with God and to be "a man after God's own heart."
