And the king said to the guard who stood about him, “Turn and kill the priests of the LORD, because their hand also is with David, and they knew that he fled and did not disclose it to me.” 1 Samuel 22:17 ESV
Imagine being the guard and posed with this question: Should I disobey the king or do I fear God?
Imagine the thought process. Okay, so, if I disobey the king I am dead. He is either going to kill me or he will surely make my life a living hell. But if I dishonor God I might as well be dead.
But I know God and my faith and trust is in Him. This might mean I suffer, but, oh well, ultimately, I honor God.
In the end, this guard did not obey Saul. The text doesn’t say what happened to him but honestly that’s not the point. This man had, to me, a life-altering decision to make and he chose to honor God.
So, that is my takeaway: With every decision I must choose to honor God.
Yes, we must choose to honor God in every decision we make in our lives.
Be Strengthened and Encouraged in HIM!
