David and Saul, the better story

February 25, 2011

God shows us the life of David not as an example of how to relate to the Saul’s we encounter in life, but of how a man after God’s heart is willing to be what God has called him to be whether or not he is seeing it manifest in the way that he was expecting.

This isn’t a story of how to become king, it is a story of how to love. It isn’t a story of how to run from oppressive authority, it is a story of how to be obedient to the spirit.

I have recently been given a few interesting signs pointing me to the life of David and up to now I’ve been looking at his life from the microscope of dealing with the adversity of serving under an ungodly king. Now, I’m looking back through Samuel’s account of David, from 1 Samuel 16 through the end of the book, for the hidden wisdom of David’s love for his God and for His people and how this love guided his experiences throughout this seemingly impossible situation.
