Find strength in the Lord




1 Samuel 30New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God.

King David was faced with death and his men were really angry with him for their wives and children had been abducted.  They were talking about stoning King David.  King David must have felt wretched but he went to the LORD, his strength was in the LORD.

Picture this you have been struggling with a task at work and your manager has been carrying on like a lunatic.  Threats of dismissal are hanging around your head.  Who do you call?  This is the time to come in prayer before the LORD, looking to the LORD to help you and strengthen you.

Because you and I have a personal relationship with the LORD we can draw on His wisdom, insight and knowledge and sort out the problem we are facing.


Dealing with difficult circumstance also require that we need a good night’s rest, and when rising in the morning spending time on knees before the LORD.

Prayer
LORD God, in humbleness we come to YOU this morning, YOU know our circumstance and what we are facing right now.  LORD please will YOU bless us with YOUR supernatural favour today and give us the necessary strength to carry on.  In the Name of Jesus, Amen

It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
