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.

Awsome, even though war wage and it seems like we may be on the losing end we have still been equipped with a measure of faith to allow us see the victory, pull ourselves up by our boot straps have confidence in God and ourselves.
