The Father’s Love Holds You or Releases You
The Father’s unfailing love will always hold you no matter what you are going through in life. But you need to hold on to His love, else the Father’s love will release you because you released Him.
David was going through the most difficult time of his life when the Amalekites burnt down his and his men’s homes, captured all their wives and children, and took all their possessions. Even David’s men wanted to stone him. What did David do? He encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord. How did he do it and what was the end result? However we do see that the Father’s love held him up. What were the three things God said to David?
As a comparison, when King Saul sought the Lord, the Lord did not answer him. Saul went to a medium or spiritist to call Samuel up. Did the spirit of Samuel really come up from beneath? What did the spirit say to Saul? Did God hold on to Saul or released him? We see the mercy and grace of God in Saul’s ending. What did God do for Saul?
