1 Samuel 30:6
"Moreover, David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him, for all the people were embittered, each one because of his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God."
There are times in life when we end up in pits of despair. People’s love and loyalty is ever changing. David was being blamed for the people’s sons and daughters being captured along with his own family by the Amalekites God had commanded Saul to destroy. Their city had been burned to the ground. When David was suffering the same loss, his own turned on him, and he was blamed for what was out of his control.
I love what the scripture reveals David did. He went to his Lord God and strengthened himself in His God. There are times in life when we find ourselves alone and in the depths of despair. People we have loved and trusted turn on us which can make life unbearable. But know to do as David did. You go strengthen and encourage yourself in the Lord! When you have no one on earth, you always have Someone in heaven willing to always listen, Who has all the right answers. He never sleeps or grows weary. His love is unfailing and unconditional. Go to the same God David went to today. He will bath you in His love and strengthen you to press on victoriously!
In His love.
