The Crown: Week 9 Day 1

Optional: Read 1 Samuel 21-22

Read: 1 Samuel 22:1-5

Explore:

We find David hiding in a cave after running for his life from Saul in Israel and Achish in Gath.  Any promise of David being king seems almost unattainable at this point. However, David is patient (v.3) and has faith that God will keep His word.

How does David live his life despite being unsure of God’s will for his future?

God finally tells David, through a prophet, to go back to Judah.

How does David respond to God’s command to seemingly put himself back into the hands of king Saul?

Apply:

David doesn’t just stop and wait to hear from God when he is unsure of what he should do next.

How should we live when we feel like we have no direction from God?

Read 1 Peter 4:19

David suffers and has to run from multiple places, finally ending up in a cave. But he doesn’t stop doing what he thinks is good and right.

How can David be an example of how we should live our lives?

Pray:

Pray that God would give you the wisdom to know how to live to best glorify his name.

Pray that God would give you the courage to continue doing good even though you may suffer for it.
