1 Sam. 30:6 “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.”
While others are letting their anger and sadness control them, David, on the other hand, encourages himself in the Lord his God. He became proactive with his faith and decided to seek God for the answer to his problems. What did David have? His men had turned against him. His family was gone. Ziklag was burned. All David had during that time was his faith in God. And that is more than enough.
When people turn against you, and life lets you down, you can still stand strong and be encouraged because Hebrews 13:5 says that God, “will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” So, David turned his attention to the only One that could truly help in his time of need. And in 1 Samuel 30:8, we read
“And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And He (the Lord) answered him, Pursue; for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”
