Sunday

It was reported to David that the Philistines were raiding Keilah and looting the grain. David went in prayer to GOD: “Should I go after these Philistines and teach them a lesson?” GOD said, “Go. Attack the Philistines and save Keilah.”

But David’s men said, “We live in fear of our lives right here in Judah. How can you think of going to Keilah in the thick of the Philistines?” So David went back to GOD in prayer. GOD said, “Get going. Head for Keilah. I’m placing the Philistines in your hands.”

David and his men went to Keilah and fought the Philistines. He scattered their cattle, beat them decisively, and saved the people of Keilah. (1 Sam ‭23:1)

I have taken many problems to GOD in my life and just like David’s men, when you apply mans logic (and add the requirement of self preservation), any choice other than GOD’s direction often looms up as the preferred and most prudent choice.

But the people of Keilah were under attack and GOD had heard their prayers for salvation…!

Self Preservation (worrying about what ‘others’ will think, or do), never stands up before our GOD, He doesn’t class it as wisdom but names it for what it is – Fear.

Lord, I want to walk and live in Your Light. help me to take on board the foolishness of obeying you and trusting in Your Grace. ❤️
