Ps. 23:5-6. The real question. The real reason, that makes it difficult is that I have to decide daily. I have to decide, will I hold onto my harp? Will I maintain my integrity? Will keep serving God? Will I keep blessing the Lord at all times? Praise. Let it go. Return to senderI Samuel 18 and 19. Generally speaking,...when you win a battle what you win is the opportunity to fight another battle. If you want peace, prepare for war. Getting a handle on difficult seasons in life, requires learning how to handle difficult people. The greatest tests of your life are not always how you handle difficulty but how you handle success. Be careful of the song of social media...the song of comparison. Comparison will make you crazy. It produces pride. It becomes about our ego.

The Cave • April 27, 2019 • Seth McRae
I Sam 17. David defeats Goliath and marries King Saul's daughter. He becomes a national hero. Saul begins to see him as a threat. By I Samuel 19 David becomes a fugitive, running and hiding from Saul. I Sam. 22:1 He is overwhelmed by life. Lessons from the cave: 1 Even strong people get overwhelmed. Ps. 142:4-6. 2 Even when I am overwhelmed, God is still over all. Blind faith - close your eyes to life's problems. Biblical faith looks at reality and faces life's problems. Ps. 57:4. Shifts focus to God. Ps. 34. 3 The presence of problems does not mean the absence of God. John 20:1.
