1 Samuel 19: God’s Protection

When David had fled and made his escape, he went to Samuel at Ramah and told him all that Saul had done to him. -1 Samuel 19:18

God is our protection. When enemies oppose us, our natural reaction is to either fight or flee. In either case, the enemy could win. That is, unless God provides protection. In David’s case, Saul had chosen to kill him. David fled on multiple occasions. Why? God protected him.

At one point, David fled to Samuel for protection. When Saul tried to go there to kill him, God’s Spirit forced him to stop. No sword was necessary; only God’s power.

Other places in Scripture note that if God is for us, who can be against us? There is no power greater than his. We need only to depend on his strength today.
