Life brings challenges. Circumstances may overwhelm us, and the enemy may try to discourage us or cause doubt about God's goodness and faithfulness. Out of anyone in the Bible nobody knew this better than David. David was a fugitive for a long while and yet he found a strength that carried him through to his promised kingship. In 1 Samuel 30:6 it says that even though David was greatly stressed, David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. But what does that mean?
The answer to that question can be found in Psalms. Here we see David cry out tearfully to God but consistently return to reminders of His faithfulness. In the midst of his greatest trial, David consistently wrote verses such as these: "Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you" (Psalm 63:3) and "Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved" (Psalm 55:22)
God's word is true. When the enemy comes against us, it is important to remind ourselves of God's faithfulness in our own lives and in His word. Here are a few reminders I go to consistently:
