Speak His Promises

And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. ~ 1 Samuel 30:6

Hopelessness and despair had taken over these warriors. Men hardened from the ware of battle broke down and cried because the Amalekites had burned their homes, kidnapped their families, and had stolen all of their wealth.

Each man was sorrowful and grieved in his heart. They saw no hope. They heard no hope. They had no hope. These war-hardened men were in a state of hopelessness, but David, the Bible tells us, encouraged himself in the LORD his God.

I’m here to tell you there is hope. I don’t know what you’re going through; maybe you are dealing with grief like these men were. Maybe you lost a loved one due to COVID19. Maybe the lockdowns and restrictions are getting to you, and you feel hopelessness creeping in.

I’m here to say there is hope. It’s not a cliché. It is the truth. Believe in God, also, believe in Jesus who died for you and who is coming back to get you. These things that we must endure now are only light afflictions when compared to eternity. Remind yourself, if I can only but touch the hem of His garment, that will be enough.

So, encourage yourself in the LORD. Think about these things. For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. If you think I’m healed. You will be healed, but if you think I’m sick and there is nothing that can be done for me, you’ve lost already.


    • I will live and not die
    • I have salvation in Jesus, because Jesus loves me and He died for me
    • Jesus is coming back for me
    • The God of all creation is interested and cares about little old me

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Speak His Promises.
