- 1 Samuel 24:1-22
- Psalm 57
- Psalm 142
- 1 Samuel 25:1-44
The warrior David hid out in caves one minute and took on battles the next. His life spread forth from battle to hiding to battle and back. No day seemed quiet nor were his days that of leisure. He needed to make life and death decisions, and he needed to do it well.
Your life may be the same. The battles may not include swords and horsemen, but the battles rage all the same. The caves may not be caves, but may be quiet moments taken out of the fray. You need to make life-altering decisions. How can we make such decisions and do well as David did?
“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let Your glory be above all the earth. They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They have dug a pit before me; into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise.” Psalm 142:5-7, NKJV
David sought the Lord. Not just periodically, but David sought the Lord as if his life depended on it. And so often those decisions did decide whether he or others would live or die. His future days depended on the current decisions, and so do yours.
Seek the Lord as David did, for your very life depends on it.
