But David found strength in the LORD his God. (1 Sam. 30:6)
Here we see what David, a man after God’s own heart, does after losing everything.
He lost his family. All his possessions. His men were turning against him.
In fact, they were about to stone him.
And what does David do?
The Bible says “David found strength in the LORD his God.”
David doesn’t get bitter. And he doesn’t retaliate nor does he try to defend himself or preserve his life.
Instead, he FINDS STRENGTH in the Lord his God.
And how does one do that?
God says, “In Repentance and Rest is your Salvation, in Quietness and Trust is your Strength.” (Isa. 30:15)
In times of great loss and trials, if we’ll learn to remain quiet and trust God (be still & know that He is God) here’s what God promises:
“I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isa. 41:10)
Because God’s specializes in “giving strength to the weary and increasing the power of the weak.” (Isa. 40:29)
“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those
whose hearts are fully committed to him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9
In God’s Eyes, Full Commitment = Being Quiet & Trusting Him.
