Our God is too big for that!
1 Samuel 30 New King James Version (NKJV)
David’s Conflict with the Amalekites
30 Now it happened, when David and his men came to Ziklag, on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South and Ziklag, attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire, and had taken captive the women and those who were there, from small to great; they did not kill anyone, but carried them away and went their way. So David and his men came to the city, and there it was, burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters had been taken captive.
Steps of “My God is too big for That” Strategy:
  1. Ask God for strength
1 Samuel 30:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was [a]grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
Isaiah 40:29 New King James Version (NKJV)
29 He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.
  1. Ask God for revelation
1 Samuel 30:7-8
Then David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech’s son, “Please bring the ephod here to me.” And Abiathar brought the ephod to David. So David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?”And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
Zechariah 4:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
So he answered and said to me:
“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:
‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
Says the Lord of hosts.
  1. Prune destructive ways to make room for new paths and new people
Proverbs 28:13 New Living Translation (NLT)
13 People who conceal their sins will not prosper,
but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.
1 Samuel 30:9-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
So David went, he and the six hundred men who were with him, and came to the Brook Besor, where those stayed who were left behind. 10 But David pursued, he and four hundred men; for two hundred stayed behind, who were so weary that they could not cross the Brook Besor.11 Then they found an Egyptian in the field, and brought him to David; and they gave him bread and he ate, and they let him drink water.
  1. Believe God for your Restoration.
1 Samuel 30:16-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 And when he had brought him down, there they were, spread out over all the land, eating and drinking and dancing, because of all the great spoil which they had taken from the land of the Philistines and from the land of Judah. 17 Then David attacked them from twilight until the evening of the next day. Not a man of them escaped, except four hundred young men who rode on camels and fled. 18 So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. 19 And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all. 20 Then David took all the flocks and herds they had driven before those other livestock, and said, “This is David’s spoil.”
