Nothing missing

1 Samuel 30:19

Nothing was missing; small or great, son or daughter, nor anything else that had been taken. David brought everything back.

Not one thing was missing. Not one small piece in the puzzle was gone. God is amazing!

A few verses down they come upon the men that could not continue to fight the battle and immediately some of the battle weary men want to turn on the ones that did not fight. Imagine how tired David was the weight of everything was on him and yet HE remembers – Don't be selfish with what the LORD has given us. He has kept us safe and helped us defeat the band of raiders that attacked us.

I am reminded on the bone weary days that God fits every piece of the puzzle together not me! I am reminded that God is the one that will fight the battle for us, if we allow Him in to fight for us. Or we can get all puffed up in pride and think in our own little minds that we had something to do with the victory and then defeat will happen because of our bad choices.

David knew who won the battles!
