You can trust The Lord even when those around you do not.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
“Be good to your servant, that I may live and obey your word.” Psalms 119:17
Read - 1 Samuel 29-30, Psalm 56, 1 Chronicles 12:19
David is once again in the enemy camp. He is ready to go to war with them against his own people (it seems) but the enemy leaders prevent it. Be thankful for any person who prevents you from bloodshed!
While away, David’s home is raided by the evil Amalekites. David hunts them down and rescues the women and children that were stolen.
Lord, help me to not abandon my home to pursue evil.
A history of the Amalekites:
While David is pursuing a fight an enemy sneaks in behind him and steals all that is of value in his life. We see here how even a faithful person can be misled by the enemy.
