    Continuing to recover all and then some

    Pastor Brad Morgan of New Life Beginnings Church in Brookshire / Pattison, TX continues continues speaking about David. David had grown weary waiting for the promise made to him by the prophet Samuel that he would be king. In 1 Samuel 27:1 says, "And David said in his heart, now I shall perish someday by the hand of Saul. There is nothing better for me that I should speadily escape to the land of the Philistines, and Saul will despair of me to seek me anymore in any part of Israel so I shall escape out of his hands." David was not supposed to do that, he was in the wrong place for the wrong reason. But God's grace still covered him. God had wanted to ressurect the promise in his life, but David was not at the place of ressurection, instead he went to Ziklag and was at the place of judment.


    In 1 Samuel 30:1 it speaks about David being in Ziklag on the third day.  David found himself at Ziklag and at that time the Amalekites had attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire.  The Amalekites had taken captive the women and those that were there, wives sons and daughters and carried them away and left Ziklag burned.  When David and his men came to the city their wives, sons and daughters were gone and had been taken captive. 


    Even in all this, David chose to be strong. He strengthened himself in the Lord. He chose to be strong in the Lord. Pastor Brad teaches about what we have available to us to be strong in the Lord. He also teaches further about how David used this strength in his situation. Continuing on to recover all and then some.

    God wants you to strengthen yourself in Him

    in Religion

    Pastor Brad Morgan of New Life Beginnings Church in Brookshire / Pattison, TX continues continues speaking about David. David had grown weary waiting for the promise made to him by the prophet Samuel that he would be king. Even in all his adversity, David did not try to promote himself or lift himself up, he did not seek promotion. We need to let God be the one who raises us up.  In Psalm 75:5 it says, "Do not lift up your horn on high, do not speak with a stiff neck. For exaltation comes neither from the East, nor from the West, nor from the South, but God is the judge, He puts down one and he exalts another." Notice that the North is not in that verse. In the scripture, the North represents trials.  Your promotion comes from the trials, from you learning how to walk with God through contradictions. David was going through a contradiction. He had opportuties to promote himself, but he would not do it, he waited on the Lord. Psalm 32:8 says, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will guide you with my eye." You need to obey God out of your heart. God wants you to strengthen yourself in Him.

    In 1 Samuel 30:1 it speaks about David being in Ziklag on the third day.  The third day signifies resurrection. David was getting something out of his system. There is a time to weep. David had poured himself out some men and now they wanted to stone him. David dealt with betrayal by coming back to God. David had left what God had for him when he ran to Ziklag. You have to face the spirit of fear head on. David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. In a crisis we get to discover who Christ is. During a trial and struggle God just wants to wrap his arms around you and love on you.
