As we arrive at 1 Samuel 21, we get a picture of David's first of many days running from Saul. He's in distress with no food or weapons and even goes to the Philistine city of Gath. The situation in which he finds himself is scary, dangerous and awful. Yet through it all, David continues to trust God and look to Him alone. We see this wonderfully in Psalm 56, which David wrote in response to his experience in Gath. I love the message found in verses 8-11 and how they demonstrate that God's peace can be ours in the middle of our chaos.
How do you respond when life seems to be spinning out of control? Do you believe that God is for you ("This I know, that God is for me." Psalm 56:9)? What's one thing you learned from David in Psalm 56? Tami
