Share this story:

“And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.” 1 Samuel 30:6

The most important attitude a Godchild can have is self-caution; the ability to regulate one’s emotions, thoughts, and behavior in the face of temptations and impulses.

Before a Godchild falls, he sees the symptoms way before the experience.

Nothing happens to the Godchild accidentally.

A basic truth every Christian must come to know and understand is that God doesn’t interfere with the emotions/will of any man.

He does not enforce his will on man, otherwise, every man would be born again today.

He might suggest a pathway for you to follow – but, at the end you will be the one to make the choice.

Look at Deuteronomy 30:19

“I call Heaven and earth to witness against you today; I place before you life and death… choose life so that you and your children will live.” (MSG)

So even when you pass through trying times like David did in the above text; God will not decide for you what your countenance should be like neither will He enforce a joyful countenance on you. You are the one to decide.

God definitely wills that you be joyful and encouraged despite the challenges you face; but he leaves it to you to encourage yourself.

Encouraging and strengthening yourself in your walk with God is your responsibility and no one else’s. It is an act you have to consciously take up. Encouraging yourself and how well you do it, is a determinant factor of how quick you get out of that situation.

Learn to talk yourself up and out of that situation; and into the glory ahead.

There’s a glory beyond that circumstance – choose to foresee that only. Meditate on God’s promises to you, do some talking sessions over your life and you will see yourself make tremendous progress.

No matter the challenges I face, I remain joyful and encouraged; knowing that God will not forsake me. A greater glory awaits me.

Habakkuk 3:17-18
