First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read 1 Samuel 29.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — The Philistine leaders demand their king not allow David to fight against Israel with them for fear he would turn on them.
- Doctrinal — God can direct our lives through our disappointments.
– Inspirational — I need to remember that the “losses” I experience may not be losses at all, but directional signs toward a better long-term path (read how the disappointment of chapter 29 led David to the needed path of chapter 30).
