June 20, 2024 – 1 Samuel 18:10-16

This is another powerful passage. Saul clearly understands the relationship between David and God. He “stood in fearful awe of him.” (verse 15) God had blessed David in many ways. I sometimes watch God work in people’s lives in mighty ways and wonder, “Why not me, Lord?” I think the answer lies in my relationship with God. Do I seek Him daily? Do I act according to what His word is trying to teach me? Do I align myself with his truths? If you find yourself struggling in the same manner, commit your life to pursuing a closer relationship with God.

10 The next day a harmful spirit from God rushed upon Saul, and he raved within his house while David was playing the lyre, as he did day by day. Saul had his spear in his hand. 11 And Saul hurled the spear, for he thought, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David evaded him twice.

12 Saul was afraid of David because the Lord was with him but had departed from Saul. 13 So Saul removed him from his presence and made him a commander of a thousand. And he went out and came in before the people. 14 And David had success in all his undertakings, for the Lord was with him. 15 And when Saul saw that he had great success, he stood in fearful awe of him. 16 But all Israel and Judah loved David, for he went out and came in before them.
