David Strengthened Himself In The Lord

In I Samuel 30, we find a story of a time when David and his men went to Ziklag. They discovered that the Philistines had raided the town and they had captured David’s two wives. Everyone was upset.. discouraged.. It was a time when everyone needed someone to offer support. But, all of David’s men were angry with him so David couldn’t talk to any of them.
David was alone… oh, there were people around him but David was alone among the people. Have you ever felt that way?
So what do you do when no one is around that you can talk to? David “strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” How do we do that?
First we can strengthen ourselves through prayer.
Second, we can strengthen ourselves through reading God’s word.
Third, we can strengthen ourselves through listening to Christian music or reading a good book.
Today, maybe you feel alone in a crowd. There is no one to talk to. You can strengthen yourself in the Lord.
