Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 1 Samuel 24: 3-10If you have a deep knowledge of who God is, you would trust Him. You wouldn’t just say that you trust Him, but in the face of death, you could scream back. I trust God!

He came to the sheep pens along the way; a cave was there, and Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were far back in the cave. The men said, “This is the day the Lord spoke of when he said[b] to you, ‘I will give your enemy into your hands for you to deal with as you wish.’” Then David crept up unnoticed and cut off a corner of Saul’s robe.

Afterward, David was conscience-stricken for having cut off a corner of his robe. He said to his men, “The Lord forbid that I should do such a thing to my master, the Lord’s anointed, or lay my hand on him; for he is the anointed of the Lord.” With these words David sharply rebuked his men and did not allow them to attack Saul. And Saul left the cave and went his way.

Then David went out of the cave and called out to Saul, “My lord the king!” When Saul looked behind him, David bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground. He said to Saul, “Why do you listen when men say, ‘David is bent on harming you’? 10 This day you have seen with your own eyes how the Lord delivered you into my hands in the cave. Some urged me to kill you, but I spared you; I said, ‘I will not lay my hand on my lord, because he is the Lord’s anointed.’

I am always amazed by David’s behavior. David was a warrior and had taken the lives of many soldiers. To take the life of king Saul was surely nothing out of the ordinary. Many people would have said that it was God’s deliverance and provision that Saul found himself in that position.

No matter the fortunate position David found himself in, he could not be the one to slay God’s anointed king. Considering God’s anointing on David, surely he was God’s anointed king, and so killing Saul would definitely be justified. I’m really building a strong case as to why David could so easily taking Saul’s life in the cave.

David though knew God! He knew that God was faithful and just. David knew that God would follow through on His promise and anointing to make David the next king of Israel. he better that we know God, the more that we can and will trust him.

Let’s Pray
