David thought to himself, “The best thing I can do is go over to my enemy.” 1 Samuel 27:1
David did not leave a man or woman alive … for he thought, “The survivors might inform on us and say, ‘This is what David did.’ ” Such was his practice as long as he lived in Philistine territory. Achish, king of Gath, trusted David. 1 Samuel 27:12
Lord, protect me from my enemies. Keep me from seeking security in the land of my enemies. Rather than “think to myself” may I think on your laws, love, and commands. May that keep me in Your Will.
A great deal of what we call the trial of faith is the inevitable result of being alive. Oswald Chambers
