Already on the Way

“David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” 1 Samuel 30:6 NKJV

David and his men were distraught. Amalekites had raided their camp, capturing their wives and children. The impact was devastating. David’s men were so upset that they thought about stoning him. Then, they all “lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” After this expression of sorrow, David sought God for help. Then, they began to pursue their attackers.

Soon after beginning this pursuit, they met an Egyptian, who was able to lead them to the Amalekites. Equipped with this intelligence, they were able to rescue all their family members.

The interesting thing is realizing that, by the time they began their pursuit, God already had placed that Egyptian in their path. In other words, the answer already was on the way. They just had not seen it unfold.

How easy it can be for us to be like David and his men. Even if we have prayed about a matter, still to be worried, afraid, or filled with doubt.

As we pray, we need to commit matters to God, praying until we have peace and assurance. After praying, we need to continue believing, resting in Him, then acting with faith and confidence in Him. Even if a resolution does not seem apparent, we must remember His promises. To realize that He is with us, and promises to work everything together for good (Romans 8:28).

In your life, commit your needs to God in prayer. Pray with passion and commitment. Speak from your heart. Cry out to Him. But then trust Him. Believe that His answer already is prepared. Then, watch as you see how He responds, in His time, and in His way.

Prayer

Father, I commit these matters to You: __________. I believe that the answers are on the way. Deliver me from fear and worry. I trust You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
