March 8, 2024

David spared Saul's life again. The Ziphites stirred Saul to go after David. Saul took three thousand men with him on this venture, and they camped near where the Ziphites had seen David. David was in the wilderness but sent spies to affirm that Saul was with them. When it was night, and everyone was sleeping, David and Abishai went into camp and found Saul sleeping; the Lord had placed the entire army in a deep sleep. Abishai wanted to kill Saul and told David he could do it in one blow, but David refused because God anointed and appointed Saul. However, Saul had stuck his spear in the ground right next to him, and they took it along with his water container. They left and perched on a nearby hill, then called out to them and chastised Abner, telling him he should lose his life for not staying awake and protecting his king. David admonished them for separating him from his inheritance of the Lord. Saul was grateful that David had spared his life and encouraged him to go back with him. Even though Saul seemed to be over his hatred for David, he didn't go home with him; he still didn't trust him. 

David could walk into the enemy's camp without harm because the Lord was with him. However, you must remember all the Psalms David wrote; he worshipped and praised the Lord, crying out to Him for help. You dare not walk into your enemy's camp without first seeking God. Therefore, stay dressed in your spiritual armor as David did when he came before God with his worship. 

For a breakdown of the Spiritual armor, read Ephesians 6:10-18.

And, behold, as thy life was much set by this day in mine eyes, so let my life be much set by in the eyes of the LORD, and let him deliver me out of all tribulation. 1 Samuel 26:24
