Daily Devotional
April 26
 
So David went, he and the six hundred men that were with him, and came to the brook Besor, where those that were left behind stayed. But David pursued, he and four hundred men . . .
1 Samuel 30:9-10 (a)
 
Third, David was engaged with the Lord. Following praise and prayer, we see pursuit. Many times, people sit back and say, “Lord, if You want good things to come my way, bring them to me.”

The Lord, however, says, “Take a step of faith. I’ll be with you. I’ll fight for you. But I want you to be engaged with Me. I don’t want you passive because I want to prepare you for eternity.”

To Elijah - another man who was depressed and holed up in a cave - God said, “Why are you in this cave of depression? You know better than this. I want you to go to Syria. I want you to anoint a new king. I want you to go to Israel and raise up a leader. I want you to find a young man named Elisha and mentor him. I have work for you to do” (1 Kings 19).

The Lord says the same thing to us. “Why are you in this cave? You know better than that.” Do what you know, and you’ll know what to do.
