A Word of Encouragement from our Director of Missions
“When David and his men came to the city (of Ziklag), behold it was burned with fire, and their wives and their sons and their daughters had been taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted their voices and wept until there was no strength in them to weep” (I Samuel 30:3-4).
Have you ever come to a place in your life where you felt like the enemy (Satan) had destroyed all opportunities for your advancement in life and ministry? You may even feel like your family (children and grandchildren) have been “taken captive” by the enemy. Have you found yourself weeping until there were no more tears? This was exactly where David found himself on this occasion. So, what do you do? To whom do you turn? Where are the answers to your hard questions?
This passage tells us, “David strengthened himself in the Lord his God” (I Samuel 30:6c). You and I have the same privilege David had. When we are faced with what seems to be insurmountable odds, we, too, can “inquire of the Lord” (v. 8) and, in the strength of the Lord our God, come against the enemy, reclaim what is ours in Christ and win a victory.
The Bible says, “Whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith” (I John 5:4). So, before you give out, give up and give in to your enemy, “strengthen yourself in the Lord your God!” and re-place your faith in Him who is your victory.
Encouragingly Yours, Russell Cook
