So David and his men, about six hundred, arose and departed from Keilah and went wherever they could go. Then it was told Saul that David had escaped from Keilah; so he halted the expedition. 1 Samuel 23:13

David was specific when he consulted the Lord, because he had to make a decision. Otherwise, he’d be destroyed by Saul’s power. With divine help, the future king of Israel knew it was best to leave Keilah. When the Lord speaks, obey! If you don’t follow what He says, the devil will win and, in some cases, even destroy your life. In eternity, we will be accountable for our destroyed body, because it is a temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19).

The Lord responded clearly and David had no more doubts about Saul’s plans. In order to continue being a blessing to Israel, the chose people’s hero avoided getting closer to the persecutor king. Why do certain things happen to Christians? Servants of God aren’t “special people”, and they will still suffer temptation; therefore, they must watch and pray so they won’t fall.

David asked God if the people of Keilah, who had been delivered from the hands of the Philistines, would surrender him to Saul; the answer was yes. The people of that region were grateful for what David had done, but they would be killed if they didn’t surrender him. However, they knew the Almighty One was on David’s side. Obey the Father, who is faithful, holy and knows everything!

There were no more questions to be made to the Lord. So the future king gathered his warriors and went wherever they could go, because Saul was watching them. Some things we can’t understand at first, but when we face other problems, we realize why the Lord didn’t act as we expected. If God had told David he could stay, Saul would’ve gotten desperate, because either he’d never find David or he’d be defeated. That wasn’t God’s purpose!

Several people went to Saul to inform him that David had escaped, which caused Saul to change his plans, for once again his attempts to stop Jesse’s son failed. The situations we face never escape from our Father’s eyes. Much to the contrary, He sees everything and helps us in our battles. In eternity, God will show us incredible things that could have happened to us.

The truth is that David had to go through those situations in order not to falter when he became king and some evil people rose against Israel. It was all part of his training. God’s servants are subject to persecution. If you are really one of them, one day you will reign with Him, leaving behind all the problems you faced (Romans 5:3,4). Don’t complain about what happens to you. God is in control!

We must do the will of God according to the Bible. Those who fear God should learn to fight their daily battles, for they are inspiring lessons. Rest in the Lord, but fight your battles!

In Christ, with love,

Lord, our Instructor! Your counsel was promptly accepted by David, and that’s why he fled from Keilah. He was on a great mission and he didn’t want to hear that by staying in Keilah, the people would be destructed!

Although they were rejoicing for being delivered from the Philistines with David’s help, the people from Keilah were about to surrender David to Saul; if they didn’t do it, they’d be destroyed. David understood Your message, Father, and he was saved!

May we never be disappointed at people in whom we’ve invested if they decide to move to another church. Whatever You have for us will come to pass and we will be ready as we learn from You. Amen!
