YOU FEEL STUCK.
There is no living at maintenance level in a pit.
YOU CAN'T STAND UP.
You feel powerless against attack.
A pit is an early grave that Satan digs for you in hopes he can bury you alive. Should you fall in he cannot make you stay! But on the same God will not make you leave. Some things are simply up to us.
YOU'VE LOST VISION.
We can no longer see things that may have once been obvious to us. That is one reason we often stay in the pit. We can always look up but we're often too focused on our sinking feet.
