I Samuel 30 Tells the story of David and his men returning from battle to find their town burned to the ground and all of their families kidnapped. Loss. In verse 4 it says that they wept till they could weep no more. Brokenness. But then in verse 8, David seeks the Lord and asks if they should pursue. He sought the Lord! And the Lord told him, “Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!”
Don’t curse your season of loss and brokenness, seek the Lord with all your heart. Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
Let’s continue with verses 18-20; “David got back everything the Amalekites had taken, and he rescued his two wives. Nothing was missing: small or great, son or daughter, nor anything else that had been taken. David brought everything back. He also recovered all the flocks and herds, and his men drove them ahead of the other livestock.”
If you will just stop looking at what you’ve lost, encourage yourself in the Lord by thinking on what He’s done for you in the past and seek His face, just love on Him, ask Him what you should do, He will show you! The very area the enemy is fighting you in is the very area God wants to bless you in. Body, soul, mind, spirit, faith, finances, family and future.
God didn’t love David more then He loves us. Don’t allow this time of loss and brokenness to dictate where you will end up. The battle isn’t yours, it’s Gods! His ways are not our ways, they’re backward. Who else would design a seed to fall into the ground and die before it could yield fruit?
Father, I give you my losses, my tears, my pain and sorrow. What the devil has stolen from me, you will return to me 100 fold now in this lifetime according to your Word. Just as you have in the past, you will take all that the devil intended to use against me and it will be for your glory. I TRUST IN YOU! Not everyone will understand me, but Father, you do and that is all that matters to me. I TRUST YOU! With my children-I trust you! With my finances-I trust you! With my job-I trust you! With my gift-I trust you. I rejoice in my victory because as David, I will recover all!
