“Listen for God’s voice…he’s the one who will keep you on track.” Pr 3:6 TM

After being anointed king of Israel, instead of immediately going to Jerusalem and claiming his throne, David was forced to spend years living like a fugitive and hiding in caves because Saul was out to take his life. More than once he must have asked himself, “What about the promise God gave me?” Then an interesting thing happened. One of David’s soldiers found Saul asleep; he came to David, saying, “God has delivered your enemy into your hand…let me strike him” (1Sa 26:8 NKJV). What an opportunity! Get rid of the man who wants to kill you, come out of hiding, and claim your throne. After all, you’re already anointed to be king! It all made sense, except for one thing—it wasn’t God’s plan. As much as David wanted to rule Israel, he knew that in order to succeed he must do it God’s way. This story should make you think twice, and pray before acting. When Abishai offered to kill Saul, he had David’s welfare at heart. So be careful; your friends can give you advice contrary to God’s will. That’s when it’s hard not to go along with it, or defend your decision by rationalizing that the end justifies the means. Never let anyone, however well intentioned, persuade you to do what you know is wrong. “Trust God from the bottom on your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice…he’s the one who will keep you on track” (Pr 3:5-6 TM).
