1 Samuel 26:1-27:12: In 1 Samuel 27, we find David becoming weary of having to deal with the adversity from Saul. God told him that He would protect him and for him to stay in the land. But David gave into self-pity and convinced himself that he would perish if he stayed. He went into the land of his enemies without praying and eventually ended up in Ziklag with a devastating event. He repented and God restored!!
Don’t let the adversities of life cause you to go back to your old life and old friends. It may seem right at the beginning but in the end, you will pay a great price.
