1 Samuel 30:6
David was now in great danger because all his men were very bitter about losing their sons and daughters, and they began to talk of stoning him. But David found strength in the Lord his God.
When David was faced with adversity He found strength in God. When he had lost his family and possessions and his own men turned against him he found strength in God.
Life comes at us fast. When it rains it pours. The adversity, heartache, loss and struggles we face are draining. They can strip us of our strength and make us feel hopeless. David was in a hopeless, strength draining situation and yet, he found Strength in The Lord.
We can find that same strength today. If we find that tomorrow we’ve lost everything, remember how God has given to us and blessed us in the past. Be thankful for the things we do have. There is strength in being thankful. When we feel like we’re totally alone and the people we counted on turned their backs on us, remember the relationship God has with us! We’ll never be alone if we know Him!
As we come into this thanksgiving season be sure to thank God for all of our blessings and find strength in our relationship with Him!
