God Is God Enough – One Year Devotions for Women

David was now in serious trouble because his men were very bitter about losing their wives and children, and they began to talk of stoning him. But David found strength in the LORD his God. – 1  Samuel 30:6

David was in the depths of despair. He had been living in Philistine territory for over a year (1 Samuel 27:7) while he hid from Saul. This meant that by accepting sanctuary, he was obliged to serve the king (1 Samuel 28:1). When the Philistines prepared to fight Israel, David and his men were put in a difficult position by having to go out with the army to fight against their own countrymen. But the Lord kept them from having to do this—King Achish sent them home (1 Samuel 29:1-11). Returning home to Ziklag, however, David and his men discovered that in their absence all their families had been taken captive by the Amalekites. David’s closest friends were ready to stone him (1 Samuel 30:6)!

That’s the pits! “But David found strength in the Lord his God” (1 Samuel 30:6). How did he do this? By bringing to mind that God was God enough. What did David discover? The answer can be found in Psalm 40, a psalm in which David records how God was God enough to lift him out of his pit, from the mud and mire; to set his feet on a hard, firm path; and to steady him as he walked along (Psalm 40:2).

What sort of pit are you in? Do you feel like David? Spend time in Psalm 40, and remember that God is God enough to deliver us from all our pits of despair.

For Further Study: 1 Samuel 30:1-31 

Daily Courage – February 9


from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church
 

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange was happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ. (1 Peter 4:12-13)

Sister Maria

Many Christians today live with the false hope that peace will come to this world one day, that famine and persecution will end. his utopia is not in accordance with God’s Word.

When I was arrested, His words immediately came to me, When these things begin to happen, “…be on your guard” (Mark 13:9).

Instead of peace on earth we see hunger, disease and war. This happened in my country too. We were promised food, health and peace, but we soon discovered that there was no room for God in an atheistic environment. Our churches were closed, our Bibles burnt and our pastors arrested. Because I taught children about the Lord, I, too, was arrested. Only when the heavy cell door shut behind me and I was left naked in the cold darkness, did the words of Jesus make real sense to me, “Be on your guard.”

I do not want to be negative and frighten you. I only say: “…be on your guard.” Even when things look like improving in the world today, we do not have any guarantee of freedom from persecution.

Together with the warning: “…be on your guard” comes this other truth, “Rejoice”. Peter said it, Paul wrote about it from prison, Jesus exhorted us, “Rejoice”.

I can only add, you can.

The End

Poetry By Archangel White Wolf

Long road traveled

End of the line

In truth

Living on borrowed time

This story must be told

For I won’t get the chance

To tell it when I’m old

Leave a footprint

A mark in the sand

A fragment in time

You understand

If I should fade

Into the night

Remember this wolf

Walked in the light

Tired of the battle

Weary from the fight

lol cry no more

As I fade from the light

Archangel White Wolf 🐺❤️⚔️

Never take life for granted for it can be taken at anytime I love you all never forget what beautiful people you are you’re all significant you all matter never forget that.❤️
