In 2 Samuel chapter 22, David had a song in the night. He began to sing unto the Lord. He reminded himself of where his strength came from. He said, “The Lord is my Rock and my Fortress, my Deliverer.
He recalled the times the Lord had helped him before. Back in the 30th chapter of I Samuel, we read of a time when all seemed lost for David. His family and the families of his men were carried away captive. His men were ready to stone him, but in verse 6 of that chapter, David encouraged himself in the Lord. He didn’t let the grief and weariness overcome him and he got up and went to battle. Verse 18 of that chapter says that David recovered all. Verse 19 says there was nothing lacking to them neither small or great. David recovered all.
There were times in David’s life when he became weary. He was spiritually weary.
Does anyone know what I am talking about? Having done all to stand, you can’t stand much more.
Resting your flesh won’t regain the strength you need. It is the rest of God, the spiritual strengthening that you are in need of.
Jesus said, “Come unto all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”
