Bible In One Year-Day 110 (Sunday, April 20, 2014)

Commentary: 1 Sam19-21. A covenant child cannot be killed for as long as he is still within the rules binding the covenant. This was the insurance on David;

1 Samuel 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.”

How insured are you? In chapter19, Saul used his authority to plan for David’s death, but the same weapon of death he prepared for David became David’s security. Since the time God abandoned Saul, his words were not carrying the power it used to carry; his servants disobeyed him in the first place, and now the son joined them. Not only his son, Jonathan, but his daughter, Michal also. She made an image to represent David on the bed to deceive the witchcraft arresters. When they came, they caught emptiness; so shall your enemies catch emptiness in the name of Jesus. David escaped to Samuel. Here we could see the importance of a good and godly mentor in our lives. Samuel stood with David in times of great need; when his life was threatened. The anointing in the life of Samuel was unrivaled. An anointing that could not be rubbished or insulted, worthy of hiding under. Three times Saul sent messengers to arrest David who was hiding under the anointing of Samuel, the arresters were arrested. He went himself, he was arrested. You need to pray for this type of grace. When witches and wizards come to attack you, they get arrested. That type of grace is still available today but only in Jesus;

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;”

David found a good refuge to hide in, you need a good refuge also;

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

That name, JESUS, is powerful and unimaginably efficient. When you hide under this name, evil powers get arrested, disgraced and humiliated. That name shall work for you in this perilous time. Our reading for today is 1Sam22-24. Keep the fire burning and alive. JESUS IS THE LORD, Amen and Amen.

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.”
