Where do I start?

Should I start from “Wherever…” 🤔 “

The Lord promises that we can always run to Him when we are afraid and anxious, when we are having health issues, confused or sad, or overwhelmed with discouragement. Wherever you are, He is ALL WAYS/ALWAYS there to protect and comfort you.

Prison (Joseph), Lions den (Daniel), blinded and imprisoned (Samson), Widowed and without (Great grandmother of David – Ruth.) Hunted like a rabid dog – David, and tested too!

David has two opportunities to kill King Saul, and both times he refuses to kill his arch enemy or allow his men to do so. Why? These accounts reveal something we need to learn about anger, pride, revenge, humility, and submission to the Lord’s will.

  so my hand will not touch you.” (24:12-13)

The point of the proverb he quotes is that, if David were an evil doer, Saul would have been long dead. David continues with heavy sarcasm:

“Against whom has the king of Israel come out? Whom are you pursuing? A dead dog? A flea?” (24:14)

The phrase “a dead dog” denotes self-abasement or self-disparagement, as in 2 Samuel 9:8 — an object of insignificance. The flea, too, is an image of insignificance, in the same way that a mustard seed is figurative of tininess. David says something similar in 26:20 when he takes Saul’s spear and water jug while he is sleeping. His point is that Saul is squandering vast national resources fielding an army of 3,000 men to hunt down someone who is no threat to him or to the kingdom — a loyal citizen. David closes his case with an appeal to God’s bar of justice.

“May The LORD be our Judge and decide between us. May he consider my cause and uphold it; may he vindicate me by delivering me from your hand.” (24:15)

Right quick, I am moved to share exactly how king Saul died. David did not witness the defeat of the Israelites under Saul, who was mortally wounded by the Philistines and whose sons were killed. In an act of heroism so that he, the king of Israel, would not be captured, Saul committed suicide by falling on his own sword.

Prosperous and succesful written by one sent by your Creator! Commit your work to The Lord, and your plans will succeed. Amen. The Good News: Even if you’re lost and don’t know your way out through a difficult situation right now, give it all up to God. Make a promise with Him that you will see it through the end, and God will lay a path down for you.

Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares The Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in The Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge God and He will make your path straight.”

Wow! So very much to share!!! If huMan His-Story is different from what has been recorded from the inception of ‘Time.’ Think on this! ALL competing accounts have not stood the test of ‘Time!’

And we pray:

Father LORD, be with me in my going out and coming in. Bless me, Father move me to shower Your AWESOMENESS in all I do; use me LORD. Amen.
