Damnable D.


Did you ever realise how many words with so much negativity and evil begin with D? 

From the number one enemy: the devil himself to his hosts: Demons, to  that cold snatcher which many fear: Death, to the insatiable called Desire, to Deceit and Distresses, Demas the apostate, Darkness, Dry seasons, Doubt, Discouragements, Disappointments, Divorce, Dissension, Distractions, Downers, Drunkenness, Division, Dissimulation, Domestic Violence, to every good thing that is turned into a negation by the addition of the prefix, ‘Dis’. 

David’s army of  400 men consisted of “every one that was in Distress, … Debt and Discontented” (1 Samuel‬ ‭22:2‬). 

One can only agree with author, Thaddeus J. Williams, who in his book, ‘Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth’ calls them Damnable D’s! Rightly so. 

In all this, there’s still hope. We can hold on to one D which we should deliberately do and that…

“Delight yourself in Adonai, and He will give you the requests of your heart.”

Psalms‬ ‭37:4‬ ‭


As we delight ourselves in the LORD, we can say along with The Apostle:

“For Messiah’s sake, then, I Delight in weaknesses, in insults, in distresses, in persecutions, in calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong” ‭ 

(2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:10‬)

Same Psalm 37 gives us more delightful D’s:

“Depart from evil and do good; and dwell for evermore”

(Psalm 37:4). 

Depart, Do & Dwell. 

Please help us, dear Lord. Amen.
