In the wilderness, David fled from place to place, seeking safety from Saul. He was not safe in the cave of Adullam, nor in the city of Keilah, nor in the strongholds of Judah. All of these places were unable to resist the mighty man of evil that was pursuing David. Nonetheless, Saul was unable to touch David. David escaped from Saul repeatedly at just the place where Saul thought he had him.
David is not safe because of the place. David is safe because He is with God. No harm can come to him save that which is ordained of God. The invisible hand of God’s saving power is stronger than the weapons of the mighty warriors of Israel.
Are you in danger in the wilderness? Yes, every day. There is no place that you are safe. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. But there is no place, in Christ, where you must fret and worry. David was as safe as God wanted Him to be. God’s hand is our defense. Who shall separate us from Him? No one and nothing.
This is our safety, now and forever, life in Jesus.
