David was a man chosen by God, yet he went through years of rejection from men, before he finally ascended the throne. He was rejected by Saul who at different times tried to kill him; he was also rejected by the philistines and to crown it all, he was at a time rejected by men of his own army, who thought of stoning him because they had been plundered by the enemy.
Though he was anointed to be king, his ascent to the throne did not happen automatically. Infact, David dwelt from cave to cave, scampering for his life. This was enough to cause discouragement but the bible tells us that David encouraged himself in the Lord. Even when the enemy stole literally all that he physically possessed, this was enough to throw in the towel, turn back and give up on ever becoming king. Yet, David refused to lose his trust in his God. He held on to the Word of the Lord. He inquired of God if he should pursue the enemy, and God told him to!. In the end, David pursued, overtook the enemy, and recovered all that he lost. What a great lesson for us today!
Have you suffered any setbacks in your journey to God’s appointed place for you? Well, you wont be the first. David did more greatly, yet we see his end. Know today, that if God allows you in a situation, he is watching to see you come out victorious! Giving up is not an option, therefore; if you hold on to the Word of the Lord, you will surely pursue, overtake, and recover all. Halleluyah!

PRAYER FOR NATIONS AND LEADERS ( BULGARIA )
Background: 24% are unreached with the Gospel of Christ. Though the population is largely Christian, Muslim missionaries (who outnumber Christian ones) are pushing for greater Islamic influence. There are presently about 900,000 Muslims in the nation. We are praying for the nation of Bulgaria that the Gospel of Christ will prevail within her. Father, grant this nation wise leaders; whose hearts will set to know and to search out true to receive instruction for justice, judgment, and equity.
