Anticipating God

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 22:1-5

Not finding Gath a safe or welcome place, David travels to the cave of Adullam where he is joined by approximately 400 men. Shortly thereafter, he journeys to Moab where he petitions the king to take in and safeguard his father and mother from Saul. David's words to the king drew my attention.

"'Please let my father and my mother stay with you, till I know what God will do for me'" (vs. 3).

Even though he and his family are now considered outcasts and are on the run for their lives, David's trust in God remains strong. He doesn't doubt that God is in control or that God has a plan for him. So he keeps moving forward--as best as he knows how--in anticipation of God's next move.

When you find yourself in the middle of a difficult circumstance or situation, how do you tend to respond? Do you talk with God through prayer? Is your mindset one of anticipating God to move on your behalf? How does continuing to move forward in trust during hard times (even if our movement is small) help and benefit us? Tami

Tami, I like your title for your lesson! Anticipating God!!

I wish that I could truthfully say,that I anticipating God instead of fretting about my situations.
David is a good example of whom I would like to follow.
Many Psalms (34,37,52,55-57)where David shows Who He was waiting for to deliver Him.
Today's lesson along with these psalms are words of encouragement for me to trust the Lord God in all times.
This a practical lesson for all believers as we see the increase of out-right hostility towards God, the Bible and the Christian's values even in our country. May we anticipate God's next move for us.
May I stay true to Him whether I live or die for Him!

Knowing God is able
