Fixing Your Heart Part – 3

1 Samuel 17:25b

The Israelites said, ‘Have you seen this man who has come up? Surely he has come up to defy Israel. The king will greatly enrich the man who kills him, and will give him his daughter and make his family free in Israel.’

Saul had said anyone who kills Goliath will get his daughter to marry, this girl and David got married. But the daughter saw that the father was jealous of David and wanted to kill so she told David to get off this place.

1 Samuel 9:11

David’s wife Michal told him, ‘If you do not save your life tonight, tomorrow you will be killed.’

Just then soldiers came asking for David because Saul called for him in the palace. Michal said that David is not keeping well and is resting so he will later come to the palace, so the soldiers returned to the palace. When the soldiers returned Saul gave them instruction that if he is sleeping on the bed to thrush a sword into his chest and kill him there. So they went and thrusted the sword into the blanket to find out that they David wasn’t there, so after this Saul came to know that his daughter wanted to save David.  So Saul got annoyed with his daughter, he took his own daughter and her married to someone else. So imagine in a few days ago we learned that Saul was in sleeping and David could have killed him there and then. That’s the same Saul who destroyed David’s marriage took his wife and gave her to someone else, he didn’t kill Saul because he had fixed his heart on God.

Saul had done a lot of evil against David, David had every reason to kill him but he didn’t move in the flesh but waited on God. David had predetermined himself to follow God and God only, no matter what happens he will not rebel against God, he fixed his heart with God.

So today the Lord is asking you have you predetermined your actions to obey God, no matter what problems come in our life, I will not complain, murmur but give praise to God till I see the glory of God?
