Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 18:1-16, 19:1-10 (day four)
It seems that Saul always had a spear in his hand…three times he tried to pin David to the wall with it. David escaped each time. It is not that Saul was just no good with a spear…he was a warrior and well-trained in the weapons of war. God was protecting David. He had promised David he would be king…David had been anointed by God’s servant Samuel. God always keeps His Word!
God always keeps His promises with us, too. When He tells us that if we, in faith, confess His Son, we will be forgiven of our sin and saved from death for eternity, we can trust Him to keep His promise. This promise alone is so big, it is almost beyond our comprehension. But there is more! God has given us promises throughout His Scripture. Search the Scriptures…find His promises…believe Him! Even when the spears are flying, God will fulfill His Word!
