I Samuel Chapter 26
David again spares Saul’s life
Verse 1 – 12
The word of the Lord says, the Ziphites went to Saul and said isn’t David hiding in the hill of Hakilah, which faces Jeshimon? Saul went to the desert of Ziph, with his three thousand chosen men of Israel, to search there for David. Saul made a camp and waited for David beside the road on the hill the word says that David stayed in the desert. When he saw that Saul was following him he sent someone to check and found that Saul had defiantly arrived.
David asked three of his men who would go with him in to the camp and Abishai said that he would go. That night David and Abishai went to the camp of Saul and his men, they saw Saul and his men sleeping. Saul’s spear was in the ground right beside his head. Abishai said to David, today God has handed Saul to you. Abishai asks David “now let me pin him to the ground with one thrust of my spear, I won’t strike him twice” David answered Abishai saying “ Don’t destroy him, who can lay a finger on the Lord’s anointed and be guiltless? As surely as the Lord lives” David continues to tell Abishai that God will strike Saul when it is time, but he cannot lay a hand on the Lord’s anointing. David took the spear and a jug of water from near Saul’s head and moved it.
Praise God this reminds us that there is no reason to be petty or play the tit for tat game. These are the reason we say may God have mercy on your soul. If someone tries to attack you or destroy you, we are to allow God to determine what will happen to them. This is the reason why we look to the left in the right.
Yes there are times it may feel like the flesh will win the battle but remember David, he had a man chasing him even when they had squashed the problem, and Saul just kept coming back. Even if Saul did kill David, he would still been dealt with. If David had gone against God’s instruction then he would have been walking in Saul’s position left with an evil spirit from the spirit of God leaving him. So instead David shows him how close he was by taking to items that for certain would look for
When we open the door for retaliation, then it becomes about us not about God!
Verse 13 – 25
The word says that David crosses over to the other side and stood on a hill some distance away and called out to the army and Abner the son of Ner. David asked them why didn’t they Guard their king and then he asked them where was his spear and water jug. David to the men that the deserved to die for failing to protect their king.
Saul recognized David’s voice and said
“Is that you David my so?” David asks Saul what has done and why is he pursuing him? David says If it’s God then may he accept an offering but if it’s man then may they be cursed before the Lord. They have now driven me from my share in the Lord and inheritance, now do not let my blood fall to the ground far from the Lord. The king of Israel as come out to look for a flea, as one hunts a partridge in the mountains”
Then Saul asked David to come back home, because David considered his life precious, he told David he would not try to hurt him again, Saul says I have sinned.
David told Saul to send over a young man to get his sword. And told Saul the Lord handed him to him but he did not lay a finger on the Lord’s anointed, so may the Lord value my life and deliver me from all trouble. He reminds Saul that the Lord rewards a man for his righteousness and faithfulness,
Praise God for David’s faithfulness and righteous walk. It is important to deal with people according to what the Lord say. There will be times you will feel an internal war between your flesh and your spirit the most important thing to remember is the inheritance that God has promised.
