    Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEBThe old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just...

    Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, From the traps of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall together into their own nets, While I pass by.

How to Recover All

  • Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep. David's two wives were taken captive, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite. David was greatly distressed; for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David strengthened himself in Yahweh his God. 1 Samuel 30:3 WEB

    When David and his men returned home, they found their village had been burned to the ground and their families and belongings had been taken away by the Amalekites. The men with David were so upset that they talked about stoning him to death. When David was alone with everyone against him, he encouraged himself in the Lord his God. David regained his strength by focusing on the Lord for a while. That was more than enough, and within seventy-two hours, David had recovered all.

    There are times when God allows us to go through things instead of around them. I don't claim to know why, but when we come out of the other side we are better, stronger people, and we have a testimony to go with it. My Dad grew up during the Great Depression, and there is hardly a generation that turned out better. Hard times make strong people that don't begin to whine when the slightest thing goes wrong.

    No matter what you are going through, stick with God and it is going to work out for the best. Later you will look back and see that no matter what you have been through, you are still here. God can make the bad, work out for your own good. If you act like David, stick to God, think positive, believe His word, you will recover all that you have lost, and then some.

    Today, if you feel down, defeated, and it seems that the world has turned against you, there is still hope. God is more than enough, and when He is for you, who can stand against you? As He becomes bigger in your life, your problems will become smaller. Rekindle that flame within you by recalling what God has already done in your life. He is still the God that created the universe and you will come through this just as David.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please draw my heart to You like never before. Put a fresh fire within me and fill me with Your zeal. Fire me up God! Help me shake off the things that hold me back, to focus on You, and to become steadfast, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

When the Lord requires us to go through some trial, it’s because He wants to use us to help others, by encouragement, to go through the same trial.  We cannot truly lead others unless we ourselves have a testimony/witness of what God has done in our lives.

Lord, thank you so much for helping me pass my test at work! Please help me to excel there, so I can earn enough to support myself and my animals, and get my home to live in soon. I lost the man I loved, when You took him to be with You, I lost my home because he was gone, and my health took away the career I loved. Please help me recover my life.  In Jesus's name, Amen.

There are so many times in my life that something hard came against me, but He always saw me through to the blessing. Now I can encourage others to never cave in, never give up, always keep believing and praying, He is faithful to answer and His answers are always good.
