Where Strength Is Found

in God's Love Pain/Suffering

I'm Ron Moore with the Bible Minute.

Sometimes there's no place left to turn. Those we love are gone, and those we trust betray. There are times we stand stripped of all the things on which we usually depend. Our independence melts away and we stand naked, exhausted, and alone.

David was in just such a situation. Here's 1 Samuel 30:6: "David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God."

When God is all we have, we find that God is all we need. When we have nothing to offer but brokenness and failure; God stands waiting with open arms.
