Now it happened, when David and his men came to Ziklag, on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South and Ziklag, attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire, and had taken captive the women and those who were there, from small to great; they did not kill anyone, but carried them away and went their way. So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted their voices and wept until they had no more power to weep. I Samuel 30:1‭-‬4 NKJV

Trials and tribulations are no respecter of persons. Both the righteous and the wicked, the saints and the sinners, the faithful and the unfaithful all have their share.

At such a terrible time, the heart begins to bleed with thoughtless words that query God’s love. With this, it is not unlikely for the righteous to feel forsaken, helpless, weak, stranded, and weep uncontrollably like an infant.

However, there is a clear difference between the fall of a righteous and a sinner. When the righteous falls, he falls into the hand of God, and the LORD God can uphold him and raise him again. With this knowledge comes the inner strength and courage for the righteous to turn to God, and seek His face in prayer to know the perspective of God about the situation.

With divine voice comes divine direction, guidance, and resilience to forge ahead and transit into a more glorious and fulfilling future. If you will not give up yet and conclude that it is all over for you but are determined to seek to know the mind of God, your present challenges which the enemy meant for your downfall or disgrace shall result in your supernatural uplifting in Jesus’ name. It is not yet over for you, this season will pass and you will yet rejoice again. Good morning.

Your brother,
