Encourage Yourself In The Lord

Scriptures: Isaiah 26:33 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.1 Samuel 30:6-8: ~6 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.7 And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod.
