The Road to Recovery – 1 Samuel 30

“…David recovered all.” 1 Sam. 30:19

A sadder picture there could not be. David, out of the will of God stands with his men amid the smoldering ruins of Ziklag, lamenting their loss at the hands of the Amalekites who had ransacked their camp and had taken captive their wives, children and all their possessions. The anguish of heart that David experienced was the inevitable result from his brief defection to Achish, king of Gath. Stripped of self and pride, David now encouraged himself in the Lord and launched a counter offensive against the enemy recovering all that he had lost. He was renewed in the Lord and as a result recovered all.
Christian friend, have you suffered some loss as a result of your friendship with the world? Return to the Lord and find your strength in Him, and perhaps you too will recover all.

“ Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed;I, I am thy God, and will still give thee aid; I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand, Upheld by My gracious, omnipotent hand –G. Keith
