Fire Me Up God
Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep. Davids 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 that it had been burned to the ground and that 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. His family was gone. When David was alone with everyone against him, he encouraged himself in the Lord his God. David gained strength by focusing on the Lord. The Lord 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.
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 and then some.
Today, if you feel down, defeated and it seems the world is 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 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.
Prayer: Father 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, focus on You, and become steadfast, in the name of Jesus I pray.
