July 8– 1 Samuel 23:6-14

July 8– 1 Samuel 23:6-14

Oh the faithfulness of God when we are not only seeking him, but following his will.  The scripture says that Saul sought David daily, but God did not give him into Saul’s  hand.  Satan seeks us continually so we must stay in communion with God, his Word, and in prayer.  “Seek ye first the kingdom of God”. Recognize God’s righteousness , holiness, overwhelming love and desire to commune with us.  Are you seeking God? Are you taking time to ‘be still’, stay in his Word, and simply fall in love with Jesus more and more each day? Like David, your life will not be perfect on earth, but your reward in Heaven is eternal. 

When Abiathar the son of Ahimelech had fled to David to Keilah, he had come down with an ephod in his hand. Now it was told Saul that David had come to Keilah. And Saul said, “God has given him into my hand, for he has shut himself in by entering a town that has gates and bars.” And Saul summoned all the people to war, to go down to Keilah, to besiege David and his men. David knew that Saul was plotting harm against him. And he said to Abiathar the priest, “Bring the ephod here.” 10 Then David said, “O Lord, the God of Israel, your servant has surely heard that Saul seeks to come to Keilah, to destroy the city on my account. 11 Will the men of Keilah surrender me into his hand? Will Saul come down, as your servant has heard? O Lord, the God of Israel, please tell your servant.” And the Lord said, “He will come down.” 12 Then David said, “Will the men of Keilah surrender me and my men into the hand of Saul?” And the Lord said, “They will surrender you.” 13 Then David and his men, who were about six hundred, arose and departed from Keilah, and they went wherever they could go. When Saul was told that David had escaped from Keilah, he gave up the expedition. 14 And David remained in the strongholds in the wilderness, in the hill country of the wilderness of Ziph. And Saul sought him every day, but God did not give him into his hand.
