Wednesdays in the Word

In 1 Samuel 30, David's wives and children had been abducted (along with everyone else's) and their city burned to the ground. Because of the men's great sorrow, David became the scapegoat. It says that "David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him."
Now, THAT'S a bad day!
I love what he did next:
"But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God."
1 Sam. 30:6  AMEN!
That's just what we have to do! Get alone with God and get in the Word and receive the strength we need. It's available to us!

"In the day of my trouble I will call upon You. For You will answer me." Ps. 86:7

"The God of Israel is He who gives strength and power to His people." Ps. 68:35

"Your God has commanded your strength;" Ps. 68:28

"He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him." Ps. 92:15

"For the Lord will not cast off His people,"  Ps. 94:14

"For the Lord is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of Hosts, Blessed is the man who trusts in You!" Ps. 84:11-12

"Blessed be the Lord who daily loads us with benefits; the God of our salvation."  Ps. 68:19
