Winning Your Family Back - Part 1
Our Mission: To take as many people to Heaven as we can before we die. Period.
1. Find the hint that it’s not too late.
Three days later, when David and his men arrived home…they found that the Amalekites had made a raid…they had crushed Ziklag and burned it to the ground. They had carried off the women and children and everyone else but without killing anyone. 1 Samuel 30:1-2 NLT
2. There is a time to be hurt and angry.
When David and his men saw the ruins and realized what had happened to their families, they wept until they could weep no more. David’s two wives…were among those captured. 1 Samuel 30:3-5 NLT
There is a time and a way for everything, even when a person is in trouble. Ecclesiastes 8:6 NLT
3. Learn to encourage yourself in the Lord.
David was now in great danger because all his men were very bitter about losing their sons and daughters, and they began to talk of stoning him. But David found strength in the LORD his God. 1 Samuel 30:6 NLT
Remember your past victories.
Rehearse your past victories.
4. Seek the Lord for a plan.
Then David asked the LORD, “Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them?” And the LORD told him, “Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!” 1 Samuel 30:8 NLT
“But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised…I will bring you home again. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:10b-11 NLT
