In the Eye of the Storm“Stay with me; do not fear. For he who seeks my life seeks your life, but with me you shall be safe.”
1 Samuel 22:23
David took responsibility for the deaths of the priests and people of Nob, and he also took responsibility for the life of Abiather, the one remaining priest. He knew Saul would seek his life, just as he was seeking to kill David, so David made a vow to protect the priest. As long as David lived, he would take care of Abiather.
It was not really David who would protect the priest. It was God. As long as the Lord had His hand upon David, He would have His hand upon Abiather too.
It is the same thing for you and me. As long as we walk with the Lord, and seek His will for our lives, He will lead and guide us. He will complete the work He has begun in each one of us (Philippians 1:6).
David’s life is an example to us, because God had a great plan for David and His hand was upon David, but his life was not perfect. He had great trials. His anointing from the Lord began with Saul trying to kill him. As he goes on, his own son will turn against him and he will have to run again, but God preserved his life.
Never doubt God’s hand upon your life, just because you are going through trials. God is with you in the eye of the greatest storms you will face. All He asks is for you to trust in Him. He will get you through the most difficult times and you will see the blessings as you come out of the storms; just hang on to Him.
God never promises us an easy time, only a safe arrival.
