1 Samuel 30

Today we are reading 1 Samuel 30. In this chapter we read about an attack on the families of David and his men. “Now when David and his men came to Ziklag on the third day, the Amalekites had made a raid against the Negeb and against Ziklag. They had overcome Ziklag and burned it with fire and taken captive the women and all who were in it, both small and great. They killed no one, but carried them off and went their way. And when David and his men came to the city, they found it burned with fire, and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep. David’s two wives also had been taken captive, Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail the widow of Nabal of Carmel. 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 ‭30:1-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬ Few things can upset us like concern for our family’s safety. In this chapter we read about David weeping and then consulting God. How have you consulted God when you were concerned about your family? What did God do? Who did God send to walk with you? What comfort did you receive from God’s word? How can you be used by God to help someone concerned about their family? May God use your experiences to bless someone else. Pastor Tim
