Afraid of David

1 Samuel 18-20

“Saul was then afraid of David, for the Lord was with David and had turned away from Saul. David continued to succeed in everything he did, for the Lord was with him. When Saul recognized this, he became even more afraid of him.” ‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭18‬:‭12‬, ‭14‬-‭15‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Isn’t this the case with a lot of people who have control issues? Fear sets in when they see God working in the opposing person’s favor, and reactions turn to lashing out.

“Every time the commanders of the Philistines attacked, David was more successful against them than all the rest of Saul’s officers. So David’s name became very famous.” 1 Samuel‬ ‭18‬:‭30‬ ‭NLT‬‬ I’m sure this stoked Saul’s anger and hatred of David. Still, God protected David.
