On the Bottom Looking Up

In 1 Samuel 24, David was tired of being chased. After years of running from King Saul and with no indication that things would change, David began to despair. Though God had promised to prosper him, his trust faltered. Sometimes, that’s how we feel. We know that God has promised good things to those who wait on Him and that every promise of His is “yes” in Christ, but our faith, like David’s, wavers. Fortunately, when we hit bottom as David did, there’s a way back. Focusing on the Lord can lead us out of discouragement and into His presence. As we confess our lack of faith and receive God’s forgiveness, we must pledge to follow Him, recall His past faithfulness, reflect on His power, and remember His promises.
