{ Day 259 }

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. —2 Corinthians 9:10-11

Adullam was tough for another reason as well. The people who gathered to David were not exactly Israel's best and brightest. Their spiritual roots were not deeply anchored in God. They were in distress, in debt, and discontented with Saul and the government. They came to David and said, "Take care of us. It's time somebody else thinks for me!" Idealism and naivete about relationships are removed from us in Adullam. This is the place where we discover that God is real and He alone is our supply even in greatest distress, not the people He sends our way. The good news of Adullam is that it gives you hints and foreshadowing of what you can expect in the time of God's full release of your destiny. So the struggles you are visited with in Adullam turn out to be training for the way God wants to bless you in Zion. In your time of deepest struggle you will see hints of what's to come in your life.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

You alone supply the things I need—whether in Gibeah or Adullam. Teach me to look only to You for my supply. Help me to show others that You are all I need, all they need.

God doesn't want us to get our identity even
a little bit from our anointing or earthly
success but from being loved by
God and being a lover of God.
