1 Sam. 30:10 “But David pursued, he and four hundred men: for two hundred abode behind, which were so faint that they could not go over the brook Besor.”
Just when David decided to encourage himself to the Lord his God and pursue the enemy, that’s also the time that other people try to pull him down by lagging behind. Not everyone that decides to go on with you at the beginning of the battle will actually finish the battle with you. Some will lose heart and change course; others will lose strength and lag behind.
If Satan cannot bring you down, he will use the people around you to break you. We should not allow other people’s weaknesses to become our failures. If you focus your attention on what people are saying or doing, you will become discouraged and faint on the road to victory. But the man that continually encourages himself and keeps his confidence in the Lord will see his hopes realized.
