If You Think You Have Problems

Look at David’s problem. What did David do?
David was now in great danger because all his men were very bitter about losing their sons and daughters, and they began to talk of stoning him. But David found strength in the Lord his God. 1 Samuel 30:6
Not only was David fearing for his life trying to hide from Saul, David’s people wanted to stone him. David had big, big problems – his city was burned and all the women and children had been taken captive. His leadership was being questioned. His authority was being threatened. There was tremendous grieving and frustration among the people. The situation looked hopeless. The men had lost everything – all their possessions and families.
What was David’s solution to the problem?
While everyone else wanted to blame David and stone him, David found strength in the Lord. David turned to the Lord for his comfort. David’s total trust and confidence came from the Lord. David’s faith was in the Lord. David was a man after God’s own heart. David desired and delighted in the Lord more than his circumstance.
Where will you go today to get your strength? What problem are you facing which seems beyond your control?
David inquired of the Lord for instruction. He asked God if he should pursue the raiding party.
Are you walking in your own confidence or the strength of the Lord? Where are you getting your instruction? God has given you an instruction manual which HE uses to guide and direct you. Spending 30 minutes in God’s word will give you strength to face the day.

Walk today in the strength of the Lord.
