And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. 1 Samuel 30:6

Have you ever been distressed? Learn from David’s example: encourage yourself in the Lord. I know the times in my life when I have been greatly distressed, it was through reading God’s word or singing some old hymns that God encouraged me. Everyone experiences distressing situations, but God does not want us to get discouraged. He wants to encourage us. He has given us his word to encourage us. We have hymns and spiritual songs to encourage us. We have no excuse to stay discouraged.
