“And David inquired of the Lord, saying, ‘Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?’ The Lord answered him, ‘Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all’…David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken and rescued his two wives.” – 1 Samuel 30:8 &18
Past negative experiences can cloud one’s judgment and perception of the future and ultimately impact their beliefs. But regardless of the current state of affairs in your life, God is able to turn things around. You may have lost a job, a loved one, a contract, a relationship, huge sums of money and everything just seems to be swallowed up in darkness but don’t fret.
King David was in a similar situation once. Everything he had was taken away from him in a single day! And yes, just like you, he was devastated and even got depressed. To add to his predicament, His allies even turned against him. But he overcame these seemingly insurmountable obstacles by finding courage in the face of God; he encouraged himself in God. That’s where your answer lies! Regardless of the situation, seek God. If you must cry out, cry. But never let the situation take you away from God’s presence. You will never know a better yesterday after you do so! Have a blessed day!
Confession: I rely on God every day, my refuge and my strength so that I will never bow to whatever may come my way in Jesus name.
