Can You Take It?
TEXT: 1 Samuel 23:15-16 - While David was at Horesh in the Desert of Ziph, he learned that Saul had come out to take his life. And Saul's son Jonathan went to David at Horesh and helped him find strength in God.
This is what happened: King Saul didn't like David because God chose David to be the next king. King Saul was crazy jealous and continually tried to kill him. David went from city to city to hide from Saul. Saul had the entire military and riches of the kingdom at his disposal. David had to ask for free food handouts for himself and his men. Wherever David went, King Saul's men followed him. Anyone who helped David was in danger of the king's anger. This went on for years. Can you imagine how difficult and scary that must have been for David?
