Then David said to himself, "Now I will perish one day by the hand of Saul. There is nothing better for me than to escape into the land of the Philistines. Saul then will despair of searching for me anymore in all the territory of Israel, and I will escape from his hand." 1 Samuel 27:1
This got me today! God said David would be king. Saul was on a rampage to kill David. Those circumstances wore David down and changed his view of the promises of God. His conclusion was all wrong. Saul will kill me…there is nothing better for me than to escape into the land of the Philistines. Wait. What about the promises of God? Would God let David die before He made him king?
This is such a good warning. When our circumstances wear us out, be careful. God’s word doesn’t change. He doesn’t get worn out. Wait for His direction. Remember living by your logic isn’t the same as living by faith.
Consider it all joy, my brethren,
Thanks Lord, I needed that!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
