David got back everything the Amalekites had taken, and he rescued his two wives. Nothing was missing: small or great, son or daughter, nor anything else that had been taken. David brought everything back.
In 1 Samuel 30, David and his six hundred men returned home to discover their worst fear had come true. The Amalekites had raided their city, captured their wives and children, taken their possessions, and burned their houses. It was so devastating that “David and his men wept until they could not weep anymore.” But David dried his tears, encouraged himself in the Lord, got his passion back, and led his men to not only defeat the Amalekites but to get everything back plus spoils as well.
You may have lost some things, difficulties came out of nowhere, but be encouraged in God’s promises. Where you are is only temporary. If you get your passion back, start believing again, you’re going to get it all back, nothing will be missing. God knows what belongs to you, and it’s coming back. Have a “recover all” mentality, not a “poor old me” mentality. You may not see how it can happen, but God is not limited by what limits us. He is going to bring you out better than you were before.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that Your power to strengthen me in times of difficulty is greater than any force that comes against me. Thank You that I can put discouragement behind me and get my passion back. I believe that all that belongs to me is coming back. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
