Repaid Good for Evil!

Scripture

Read the full context here: 1 Samuel 24

This story of David, Jonathan, and King Saul is amazing. Here David had the chance to take out King Saul. But, he did not. David didn’t feel like it was right to kill Saul. He spared Saul’s life in the cave.

What I’m taking away from this is this:
~ Even though there are situations and opportunities to get revenge or get payback when I feel I deserve better than what I’m experiencing; don’t do it. It’s not worth it.
~ God has something better in mind for me. Even if I don’t know or understand it.

How does this apply to our lives today? How do I apply it to my life? Here are my thoughts:

  • Be obedient to God and the Holy Spirit.
    • He knows best.
  • Pray about everything, always.
    • God often shows us better through the Holy Spirit in prayers. (True story!)
  • Be in His word every single day.
    • If you don’t have time to be in the Word and spend time to pray, you’re too busy with the world. Something needs to give and be sacrificed. You’ll be glad you did! I promise! So does God! His promises never fail us!
  • Be in fellowship with your church body.
    • Keeping yourself isolated from everyone and everything is not healthy.
      • There is a difference between isolation and solitude.
        1. Isolation means: the action or state of setting someone or something apart from other people or things or being set apart (separated).
        2. Solitude means: freedom from disturbance; tranquility; mentally calm.
    • We need the fellowship to allow the Holy Spirit to feed our spirits and to lift each other up in the Lord.

Dear Adonai, Abba Yah, I pray for the readers of this blog in that they will seek You fully and surrender fully to You. I pray that these words will be a balm for their soul and spirit to give them peace about any life circumstances that are putting them in strife. I pray also that they allow You to use them for Your glory and honor in life to help others who need it. Thank You, Yah, in advance for hearing and answering this prayer. In Jesus’ name, amen.
