DAVID’S ZIKLAG EXPERIENCE

*************************

1.LAUNCH :

David was a shepherd boy spending his days taking care of the sheep when God launched him into his destiny. The Prophet Samuel came to his home and anointed him as the next King of Israel. David carried that anointing upon his life and looked forward to the fulfillment of his destiny and the plan of God upon his life. However he soon started facing the most difficult challenges of his life. Soon after he defeated Goliath and won some victories for his people , King Saul became jealous of his growing popularity and sought to kill David . Now David had to flee to save his life .

We should not be surprised when we also face such attacks of the enemy after the Lord anoints us for His purpose .

I Samuel 16:10-13

" Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, "The LORD has not chosen these."

So he asked Jesse, "Are these all the sons you have?" "There is still the youngest," Jesse answered, "but he is tending the sheep." Samuel said, "Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives."

So he sent and had him brought in. He was ruddy, with a fine appearance and handsome features. Then the LORD said, "Rise and anoint him; he is the one."

So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the LORD came upon David in power. Samuel then went to Ramah."

2.LOSERS :

When David was fleeing from King Saul , a large group of losers , people who were frustrated and disappointed with life joined him and he became their leader . David transformed these people into a disciplined army and their lives now had purpose and meaning. He took these people in their miserable condition and lifted the level of the quality of their lives. They owed a lot to David for the transformation of their lives .

We may also have helped many people in their distress and transformed their lives and they may owe us a debt of gratitiude .

I Samuel 22: 1-2

" David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his father’s household heard about it, they went down to him there.

All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him. "

3.LOSS

Once when David and his men returned from a venture they found that the Amalekites had raided their town Ziklag and taken captive all the women and children and burned down their town. David and his men had lost all their wealth and their families. It was a total disaster that they were facing . It was a major shock to David.

David carried the anointing and the promise of God. He was called to be the next King of Israel. But before the fulfillment of his destiny , he faced a severe attack of the enemy. It looked as though everything was lost .

We may also face situations when it looks as though we have lost everything even before the promise of God is fulfilled in our lives and our destiny is yet to be attained.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

********************

I Samuel 30:1-3

" David and his men reached Ziklag on the third day. Now the Amalekites had raided the Negev and Ziklag. They had attacked Ziklag and burned it,

and had taken captive the women and all who were in it, both young and old. They killed none of them, but carried them off as they went on their way.

When David and his men came to Ziklag, they found it destroyed by fire and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive."

4.LAMENTATION

When David and his men realised what had happened , they began to weep and kept on weeping until they had no more strength to weep . They were completely heart broken and discouraged . They had lost all hope for their lives . They were shaken to the core by this tragedy.

Even though David was anointed to be the future king of Israel , he had to go through this heart breaking experience before he could become King.

We may also go through heart breaking experiences on the road to destiny in our lives .
