Good morning, 1 Samuel 30 David has won a battle, but returns to the camp with his men to find that their wives and children have been taken. David and the men begin to experience worry and outrage.
6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
7 And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech’s son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David.
8 And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.
What has the enemy taken from you that has your attention? Have you consulted God and began to study to find the solution to the challenge your facing? Or are you still blaming the enemy for taking your things?
Christians and those who God chase must realize that dwelling on the challenge will only add more challenges. Change your focus and learn how to overcome the challenge. Study the situation, the challenge came our way because we’re able to obtain the solution. Study empowers one with knowledge, which is why David inquired to the Lord. Examples of over coming challenges are if your having relationship challenges learn what caused the problem. If your having financial challenges study budgeting and tithing. Whatever you’re challenged with has a solution, the key is desiring to grow beyond it and really wanting to be done with the thing. God bless you and have a great day! In Jesus Name Amen
