Have you ever experienced exceptional success in life like that of David? After what David accomplished by saving his entire nation from slavery and bondage by conquering the undefeatable foe. Who knows what it would be like to experience such success and fame like David did. In the last episode Pastor Harris talks about five crutches that got knocked out from under him. One was his job, the commander of Saul’s army. The position of King and High Priest may be the only better jobs at that time. Secondly, his wife was stripped away. His pastor was taken away as well, Samuel was one of the top profits ever known and was taken away from David. Then Jonathan was taken away, David’s best friend. These are serious crutches that were taken away from David. It was like winning the lottery and finding out the next day you in fact did not win the lottery. All he had left was his self respect and his self worth, we won't get to it in this episode but eventually he will lose that as well.
It’s hard to understand what all David was going through mentally, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. At this point his back is against the wall and Saul is coming after him. At this time David runs to Nob where he takes the sword of Goliath. He does not realize the trouble that will cause others, and it is at this point that we find David in the cave of Adullem.Support the show
