You Got A Friend-I Samuel 19 part 1

Saul’s fear had won out.  He lost all sense of propriety and honor.  He had no interest in God or his plan, But God was still in charge.  God gave David a friend in Saul’s son Jonathan.  What a gift. Jonathan was heir to the throne God gave to David.  Rather than becoming bitter and feeling cheated, Jonathan became David’s top advocate and ally. Saul must have been amazed.  He wanted to clear Jonathan’s way to the throne but, Jonathan was standing in the way. 

When we follow the Lord, we realize he sets out the journey’s path.  We can no more change the course than we can create a universe.  We simply trust and follow God, and he will make the path straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, ”Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  Acknowledge him in all your ways and he will make your path straight.” Jonathan and David understood, Saul did not.  If we honor God he will lead, guide and protect us.  He will put folks in our lives that will sacrifice, encourage and be there for us.  He will use us in others lives to do the same.  We simply have to submit to see the great blessing of such folks in our lives.  Thanks Lord for giving me such great friends and family.

God Bless You

Saul told his son Jonathan and all the attendants to kill David. But Jonathan had taken a great liking to David and warned him, “My father Saul is looking for a chance to kill you. Be on your guard tomorrow morning; go into hiding and stay there. I will go out and stand with my father in the field where you are. I’ll speak to him about you and will tell you what I find out.”

Jonathan spoke well of David to Saul his father and said to him, “Let not the king do wrong to his servant David; he has not wronged you, and what he has done has benefited you greatly. He took his life in his hands when he killed the Philistine. The Lord won a great victory for all Israel, and you saw it and were glad. Why then would you do wrong to an innocent man like David by killing him for no reason?”

Saul listened to Jonathan and took this oath: “As surely as the Lord lives, David will not be put to death.”
