Helpful easy Powerful tips that will make you jubilant
Many people find themselves in situations they don't seem to know how to get out of. And sometimes these situations aren't of their making. but whatever the root cause you owe it to yourself to raise above that mountain.
I know many people that have risen from the ash heap to something. Sure it wasn’t easy but they didn’t give up nor did they talk about their doubts I am sure they had plenty of moments when it seemed like everything was grinding to a Holt and they didn’t know how to make things shape up again.
Yet they did shape up, they turned even better than they anticipated and even more than anyone else ever thought possible. That happened to David and his men at one time ,they reached ziglag and found that the enemy had taken everything they owned,. The wives and children, and everything that belonged to them.
One needful source that will make you Amazingly powerful
The men spoke of stoning David for they felt anger , born out of hopelessness that they were incapable of handling. The only outlet for most man and women whenever they are confronted by a situation they can't handle is anger. This anger is never rational and is often directed at an innocent soul.
Haven’t you ever happened along an angry wife or husband, its not so much what’s on the ground that triggers them but some underlying issue that has been festering for months and they seem unable to understand how to go about it.
It’s not the first time his wife has burnt the meat but because of that hidden wound that's been festering he now acts like it is the end of the world, and of course everything gets blown out of proportion.
The truth about overcoming challenges for an awesome comeback
Most things that trigger a person already infested with a situation so huge he can't candle are trivial.These are usually bills, for that is what our world consists of these days. It is no longer a case of owning a mule and cattle and pigs or chickens. These were in David’s time and era.
These days men spend sleepless nights, stressing over how to make next mouth’s mortgage or how to put food on the table, where to get the next job. How about fuel for the next month, whoever heard of walking miles to get to a destination. No one spends months on the road travelling to Durban by mules.
In those days David and his men and all those that lived in their time had their hands full – What with all the battles they had going on all the time. David slew a lion and a bear at one time while out tending his fathers’ sheep. They too had challenges.
No-matter their era and ours challenges will always knock on our doors and we have to step out in faith and meet them head long.
Truths that will make Revolutionary Transformation When Challenges loom
Here is the account of David and what he did:
I Samuel 30: 1-8
1David and his men reached ziglag on the third day. Now the Amalekites had raided the Negev and Ziklag. They had attacked Ziklag and burned it.
2. And had taken captive the women and everyone else in it, both young and old. They killed none of them, but carried them off as they went on their way
.3.When David and his men reached Ziklag , they found it destroyed by fire and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive.
4. So David and his men wept aloud until they had no strength left to weep.
5.David’s two wives had been captured- Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail , the widow of Nabal of Carmel.
6. David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God.
7. Then David went to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelek,”Bring me the ephod.” Abiathar brought it to him,
8.and David enquired of the the LORD,”shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I overtake them?‘Pursue them.” He answered. ‘You will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue.”
Unsurpassed incredible truths that will turn the tables for good
It wasn’t David’s fault that their camp had been raided and even his own wives and children had also been carried off as plunder by the Amalekites. Despite what was before him David strengthened himself and called on the one he always relied upon in moments of dire straits- God.
He took the time to enquire of God. He wanted to know if it was all right for him and his man to go after the enemy who had taken their children and wives and all they had .God gave the green signal and David and his man went of to reclaim what was theirs. Of course they won for God was with them.
incredible shocking ways guaranteed to empower you beyond understanding
I suppose many think that was a bit slow of David in taking the time to enquire when the natural thing would have been to ride off at once to regain his lot. I pondered over this for long but then I realized that to stop , no matter how the odds were against him , and go in solitude to enquire of God meant that he was involving God in this. He was saying God we are in a mess and we are hopeless and we can’t do this alone . He was trusting God by saying God I let go and want to hear from you. And God didn't fail David.
Now how many times have you fallen and gone back and taken the same route, fallen again and again. So how many times are you gong to keep at it until you realize you need to involve God. Its really not the thing to embark on a journey without involving God in it, and this means in everything.
That relationship, the business,. I have learnt it saves a lot of loss if you include God from the very start. It should be easy to do , how many times do people take the time to tell their friends of their intentions long before they actually implement them and how many times do directors and mangers sit and have meetings before they implement a new phase .Many know how to pick up the phone and call friend oceans away to appraise them of their plans but they can’t just sit still for some time just to tune in to God and get his lead.
The Truth About your practical faith that actually Wins
Now David and his man routed the camp of the enemy and they recovered every one of their belongings, that’s what trusting in God does. He makes sure he guards what is yours and helps you recover and overtake, but of course he just won’t barge in. He will always wait for you to recognize his presence in you and for your to acknowledge it on your own, then for you to acknowledge your hopelessness without him.
It sounds so simple until you get into a fix then go around announcing to half the world your troubles while they sympathize with no solutions then watch you sink . At the end of the day you don’t know how to even look at those people you have been confiding in.
You judge yourself by their standards and seem so small in their sight. Yet the one who is closer to you is the last one you opt to confide in.
He is never in a hurry, the day you confide in him is the day your closed doors open and your success resounds throughout the earth. It sounds simple to do yet that’s the very last thing people will ever do.
The Truth About your practical faith that actually Wins
This is just to remind you that it doesn’t matter where you are at in life. It might seem you are -well, very old but God is never interested in age he is very much interested in your faith.
Do you recall how he dealt with Abraham and Sarah. They were very old when they had Isaac, so that shows that age isn’t it with God almighty. Faith does it, its not even death that sways him because Jesus called Lazarus forth. The one who had been died for four days heard and came out walking.
You owe it to yourself, and that decision is yours. Why fold your hands and bow your head in defeat and why compare yourself with others. You have what it takes to make it too. Just make sure you get up and call out and he will help you.
Didn’t you notice how David and his men went home laughing and rejoicing over the victory God had given them. It was such a miracle even ,we, in our era still get to take part in that victory and we get to celebrate with David over what God brought about for them.
