When All is Lost

  • David was greatly distressed; for the people spoke of stoning him, because the souls of all the people were grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters; but David strengthened himself in Yahweh his God. 1 Samuel 30:6 WEB

    David was distressed. When they had returned to their village, they found it burned to the ground and all of their wives, children, and belongings had been taken away. He and his men had wept until they no longer had the strength to weep. Now the six hundred men, who were his most trusted friends, spoke of killing him themselves. David was sitting on the ground with nothing, no family, no friends, and no belongings. He had suddenly lost everything.

    Then David pulled himself together, he strengthened himself in God. He prayed and asked God if He should pursue the Amalekites, and the Lord answered him and told him to pursue, for he would recover all. So David and his men went after a much larger enemy force, defeated them all, and brought back everyone and everything that had been taken from them. Nothing was missing (1 Samuel 30:19).

    Sometimes it is just you and God facing a great challenge, and you have to make the best of it. Especially when those that you once trusted, turn into your enemy. When the world turns its back on you, He is still there. When you feel alone in the crowd, God is still there. He will never leave You nor forsake you.

    When David was completely alone, he prayed to God and received the answer, and a word from the Lord changes everything. So talk to God yourself, build yourself back up, ask Him for the answers, strengthen yourself in the Lord. Whatever you do, don't give up, for God is able to help you recover all. He can make a really bad situation, into a victory.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I love You today and I look to You for the answer. Please give me wisdom and a clear vision for my life. Open the doors that I should go through, and give me a push me to take the next step. I want all that You have for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).
