“And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.” 1 Samuel 30:6 ESV
As I think about this verse, I see the turmoil that David was in. David had been a faithful leader to his mean, however, in this moment they all were turning against him. It was this time that the leader that they thought so highly of, now they wanted to get rid of. What David did in this moment is something that should speak to all of us. When it seems that all is against us, we should, as David did, turn to the Lord. It was through this action that David found strength.
What we learn is that no matter what we may be facing or what may come against us, there is always strength in our God. The same God who parted the Red Sea, can help us in the time of distress.
May we as David did, find strength in the Lord our God!!!!
