Saul hunts David with intent to kill. And yet, David is the one who can take out Saul. When David finds himself in a position of power and authority over Saul, who continually seeks to destroy him, David chooses to be meek and humble. David yields to God’s will instead of his own desire for safety and revenge.
When you find yourself in a position of power and authority over someone who has wronged you, your decisions will reveal what you really think about God, mercy, and justice. God calls us to obey Him, even when it doesn’t appear to be in your best interest. We can trust that God, the creator of the universe, is worthy of our obedience.
