March 2, 2024

Saul is obsessed with trying to slay David. Jonathan, David’s best friend, and his father Saul met together near where David was hiding so he could hear what they were saying. Jonathan wanted David to know that he was on his side in the matter but also wanted to talk his dad out of trying to slay him. That day, Saul and David met together, and Saul agreed not to slay him. However, as David played the harp for him, he tried to slay him with the spear again, but he escaped and went home to his wife. Saul ordered everyone in his court and his servants to slay him. His wife Michal, Saul’s daughter, knew of her dad’s plans and helped him escape through a window. David ran to Samuel, and they hid in the school of prophets. Saul sent several messengers to get David, but because they were amongst the prophets, each messenger ended up prophesying, singing, and speaking words placed on their hearts by God because the Spirit of God came upon them. Saul decided to go himself, but he also started prophesying, stripped down naked, and lay in the street all day and all night. 

No matter what the enemy has planned, he will fail because God is more powerful. God can make any man, good or evil, do what pleases him, and we can see that he did that with Saul and his messengers. God can take over your mind and tongue, doing whatever He pleases with you. Every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father! Wait for it; it will happen!

And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?  1 Samuel 19:24
