The Lord answered.
1 Samuel 30:8 (AMPC)
8 “And David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them? The Lord answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail to recover all.”
Picture this while you are down on your knees and in humble prayer, and everything seems to tumble around you. Tears are running down your cheeks, and you have no other resources available to you. You are sitting on the floor with your Bible in hand. You are reminded of something you’re read in 1 Samuel. You are paging through the Book of 1 Samuel, and your eye catches verse 8. A sudden realization comes over you, God just answered you. The feeling of dread and fear depart from you as you focus and meditate on the words “pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail to recover all.” God is so good and faithful to the extent of answered prayer. We hear His voice through the Word of God, or a friend will be talking, and they will lift us.
Prayer Heavenly Father, please Lord God, we always need Your direction in our lives. We need to have answered prayers. Lord, thank You that You work in mysterious ways and always answer us. In Jesus name, Amen.
