At that time all his men became his enemies, so David wept bitterly, and he lost his strength also.David was greatly distressed.

Have you lost everything by your enemy Amalekites.
But you know that you have a good news. Our Saviour is able to restore all that we lost.
David also when he lost every thing he enquired at the Lord,, knowing that our God is God of Restoration.
David lost all these things because he was living in the place of danger.Dear friend you are also living in this world of insecurity. you may lose everything, because of Amalekite.

[iii] THE FIRST LOVE THAT WAS LOST
" Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works ; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent" (Rev. 2: 4,5).
as the years are passing, Little by little many believers lose their first love. The excitement and joy of the early days of salvation and annointing, disappear. The sad thing is that they are not aware of this loss. thinking that they still have the same Love they had once, but doing all the repeated works , it is very misrable they are not in the Love of God!
Losing the first love is falling!
