It’s impossible to live in this world without trouble. Unfortunately, trouble is part of the cycle of life. When I was a child the old people had a saying: “What didn’t meet you; didn’t pass you!” In other words, there are life experiences that everyone will have to face. When you see someone in distress, be reminded that there is a possibility that you can face that same situation in your life.
When we look at King David, he faced many issues. He had highs and lows. He conquered his Goliath but had to run from King Saul. However, through all the challenges he faced; his trust was in God. In Psalm 138: 7 AMP, he said, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.” These words came out of the many experiences of David’s life.
There was a time in his life when he had to run from his son. We might not have that experience but we understand how it feels to be discouraged. When we get discouraged we want to run and hide but David knows the one who is in control. He was so confident in his God that in the midst of his trouble, he knew that God would revive him; he would have new strength from God. How does God do that? “My earthly life clings to the dust; Revive and refresh me according to Your word.” (Psalm 119:25) God’s word has power to encourage the discouraged. This happens as we spend time with the Word of God. if we don’t know what God says then His word cannot revive us. You see, we must know the word for God’s word to work in our life. After we’ve been revived we can say like David; “Then we shall not turn back from You; Revive us and we will call on Your name.” (Psalm 80:18)
