1 Samuel 19

1 And Saul spake to Jonathan his son, and to all his servants, that they should kill David.

2 But Jonathan Saul’s son delighted much in David: and Jonathan told David, saying, Saul my father seeketh to kill thee: now therefore, I pray thee, take heed to thyself until the morning, and abide in a secret place, and hide thyself:

3 And I will go out and stand beside my father in the field where thou art, and I will commune with my father of thee; and what I see, that I will tell thee.

4 And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good:

5 For he did put his life in his hand, and slew the Philistine, and the Lord wrought a great salvation for all Israel: thou sawest it, and didst rejoice: wherefore then wilt thou sin against innocent blood, to slay David without a cause?

6 And Saul hearkened unto the voice of Jonathan: and Saul sware, As the Lord liveth, he shall not be slain.

7 And Jonathan called David, and Jonathan shewed him all those things. And Jonathan brought David to Saul, and he was in his presence, as in times past.

8 And there was war again: and David went out, and fought with the Philistines, and slew them with a great slaughter; and they fled from him.

9 And the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

10 And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall with the javelin: but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and escaped that night.

11 Saul also sent messengers unto David’s house, to watch him, and to slay him in the morning: and Michal David’s wife told him, saying, If thou save not thy life to night, to morrow thou shalt be slain.

12 So Michal let David down through a window: and he went, and fled, and escaped.

13 And Michal took an image, and laid it in the bed, and put a pillow of goats’ hair for his bolster, and covered it with a cloth.

14 And when Saul sent messengers to take David, she said, He is sick.

15 And Saul sent the messengers again to see David, saying, Bring him up to me in the bed, that I may slay him.

16 And when the messengers were come in, behold, there was an image in the bed, with a pillow of goats’ hair for his bolster.

17 And Saul said unto Michal, Why hast thou deceived me so, and sent away mine enemy, that he is escaped? And Michal answered Saul, He said unto me, Let me go; why should I kill thee?

18 So David fled, and escaped, and came to Samuel to Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and dwelt in Naioth.

19 And it was told Saul, saying, Behold, David is at Naioth in Ramah.

20 And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.

21 And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.

22 Then went he also to Ramah, and came to a great well that is in Sechu: and he asked and said, Where are Samuel and David? And one said, Behold, they be at Naioth in Ramah.

23 And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah.

24 And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?

  1. In verse 10 AMP, once again Saul attempts to kill David “Saul tried to pin David to the wall with the spear, but he escaped from Saul’s presence, so that Saul only stuck the spear into the wall. Then David fled and escaped that night.” Saul had tried so many times, but the Lord was always with David. When we come into different situations that come against us and try to destroy us, we too need to be like David and trust in the Lord to save us. JESUS today YOU will SAVE me.

  2. And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.

    21 And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.

  3. 19. When the report reached Saul that David was at Naioth in Ramah,

    20. he sent troops to capture him. But when they arrived and saw Samuel leading a group of prophets who were prophesying, the Spirit of God came upon Saul’s men, and they also began to prophesy.

    21. When Saul heard what had happened, he sent other troops, but they, too, prophesied! The same thing happened a third time. NLT

    We shouldn’t judge a situation too quickly, there may be more going on than we realize. These men were sent to murder David, but when they got there they began to prophesy. God can use any means He deems necessary to protect His anointed.

    Isaiah 55:8 KJV
    For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

  4. 1 Samuel 19:23-24 So Saul went to Naioth at Ramah. But the Spirit of God came even on him, and he walked along prophesying until he came to Naioth. He stripped off his garments, and he too prophesied in Samuel’s presence. He lay naked all that day and all that night. This is why people say, “Is Saul also among the prophets?”

    Who can resist the presence of God?

    Sauls spiritual condition was bad, even with evil intent that he had and gone up to Ramah to kill David, the presence of God was to strong upon David that even Saul could not resist Gods presence.

    This is my desire, to be so filled with Gods presence that even my enemies when they gather to come against me, they fall short because Gods presence in me has made them fall short. I want to know you that way Jesus!

  5. Saul now urged his servants and his son Jonathan to assassinate David. But Jonathan, because of his strong affection for David,

    So Saul listened to Jonathan and vowed, “As surely as the LORD lives, David will not be killed.” (‭1 Samuel‬ ‭19‬:‭1, 6‬ NLT)

    ‘No matter what the weapon is…I win!’

    The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ KJV)

    When you are a child of the most High GOD, no matter what comes against you, GOD. Again will give you the victory over thine enemy.

    Saul at some point in his life has forgotten where GOD has brought him from and has allowed jelousy, bitterness, and pride in his heart. This is a dangerous place to be in. You no longer see with clarity, but you begin to act out In the flesh. But no matter how much you act out on, you can never touch God’s anointed.
    God has given David favor in his own household. God is faithful!!!

    What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭31‬ KJV)

  6. Keep parenting even when it seems you are losing ground.

    Sometimes, our children are our pride and joy and other times they are an embarrassment. We were perfect examples of God’s love our whole life; likely not. If we have employed principles of God and raised our children to the best of our abilities according to the Word of God we have promises to stand on.

    Proverbs 22:6 Point your kids in the right direction— when they’re old they won’t be lost.
    Proverbs 22:15 Young people are prone to foolishness and fads; the cure comes through tough-minded discipline.

  7. 20 And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.21 And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.

    Glory!!!! If God is with us who can be against us. God takes complete care of His people, the Lord takes care of me and I shall not worry. Believe in who you have at your side, the all mighty, all powerful, all glorious, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, holy, righteous God. He is with us and guarding us through it all. Thank you Jesus!!!

  8. 18 So David fled, and escaped, and came to Samuel to Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and dwelt in Naioth.

    Whether its in times of sorrow or celebration, run to your Man of God.

  9. Envy, fear, resentment only fill your heart with hatred. Saul fear of losing his kingdom, his envy towards David because he has God’s favor which Saul has lost. Once we begin to play the passing the guilt game we lose all sense of responsibility. Saul did not want to admit that he had lost God’s favor by his own actions of disobedience it makes it easier for him to blame all his troubles upon the mere existence of David. David never spoke I’ll of Saul, never did anything against Saul, but none the less Saul hated him. Saul becomes a slave to his hate towards David making him unable to be true to his own son. We should never make decisions based on temporary emotions here today and gone tomorrow. Forgive, love, and rejoice of your brothers blessings then and only then can doors open for you.

  10. iLove to Grow in the Word

    What these scriptures are screaming at me is that it does not matter if God uses you in Gifts of the Spirit such as in the gift of Prophesying or even in the gifts of tongues, or interpretation of tongues…just because the Spirit of God comes on you and others witness it does not mean God approves of you as a servant…That’s the danger in today’s church world…folks think because God uses them in a supernatural gift of the Holy Ghost that they are approved of God.

  11. t Jonathan Saul’s son delighted much in David: and Jonathan told David, saying, Saul my father seeketh to kill thee: now therefore, I pray thee, take heed to thyself until the morning, and abide in a secret place, and hide thyself:

    The moment I read this I immediately thought of how we should watch out for those we are caring for who are being hit by the enemy. David went and abided in a secret place. We too can hide in that secret place when when the enemy is seeking to destroy us. David could have fled for his life but he went into a secret place. He stayed . Many times I have wanted to run away from the enemy that I thought was going to literally destroy me but once I get into the secret place Gods presence he once again equips me , protects me until it is time once again to arise in the morning a new day of His fresh anointing. Your morning may be in the middle of the battle but He is always there if we run to the secret place. ( Now does that make any sense ) Sorry I had to post that part. Be blessed.

  12. SEEKING REFUGE

    18 So David fled, and escaped, and came to Samuel to Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and dwelt in Naioth.

    David in a time of duress and confusion, running for his life. Sought and found the man of GOD. The prophet Samuel, knew the condition of Saul and how that GOD had rejected him and that made Saul subject to evil spirits.

    We are wise to seek the man of GOD in our lives in times of trouble. He may not be a strong physical protection, but if GOD is with him, what more protection could we seek?

    I don’t believe David expected Samuel to go punish Saul, but he knew that the GOD who delivered him from the hand of Goliath would also deliver him from the hand of Saul. David made his way to the prophet of the LORD.

    In times of trouble we should run to not run from the man of GOD.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  13. 21 And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.

  14. 18 So David escaped and went to Ramah to see Samuel, and he told him all that Saul had done to him. Then Samuel took David with him to live at Naioth. (NLT)

    Where do you turn in times of trouble? David went to Samuel, likewise, we should turn to our spiritual authority.

  15. What kind of leader will you be? Will you be one after God own heart? Or one who one who has his own selfish desires and agenda and full of pride and not accountable?

    9 And the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

    First, the evil spirit was “from” the Lord in that it was allowed by God to punish Saul. God doen’t need permission, all created things are under God’s control. It is likely that this evil spirit was part of God’s judgment upon Saul for his disobedience. Saul had directly disobeyed God on two occasions (1 Samuel 13:1–14;15:1–35). God removed His Spirit from Saul and allowed an evil spirit to torment him. Satan and the demons had always wanted to attack Saul; God was now simply giving them permission to do so.

  16. 19 And it was told Saul, saying, Behold, David is at Naioth in Ramah.

    20 And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.

    21 And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.

  17. 1 Samuel 19:2, “But Jonathan Saul’s son delighted much in David: and Jonathan than told David, saying, Saul my father seeketh to kill thee: now therefore, I pray thee, take heed to thyself until morning, and abide in a secret place, and hide thyself.”

    Psalms 91:1, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
    Psalms 119:114, “Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.”

    So thankful that in difficult times, I can find a secret place in God and hide.
    He is my Secret Hiding Place.

  18. 1 Samuel 19:19 World came to Saul David is in Naioth at Ramah so he sent men to capture him. But they saw a group of prophets prophesying with Samuel standing there as their leader the Spirit of God came on Saul’s nen and they also prophesied. Saul was told about it and he sent more men and they prophesied too. Saul sent men a third time and they also prophesied. Finally he himself left for Ramah and went to the great cistern at Seku. And he asked where are Samuel and David? Over at Naioth at Ramah they said. ButI the Spirit of God came even on him and he walked along prophesiying until he came to Naioth.

  19. 7 And Jonathan called David, and Jonathan shewed him all those things. And Jonathan brought David to Saul, and he was in his presence, as in times past.

    8 And there was war again: and David went out, and fought with the Philistines, and slew them with a great slaughter; and they fled from him.

    9 And the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

    10 And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall with the javelin: but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and escaped that night.

  20. But on the way to Naioth in Ramah the Spirit of God came even upon Saul, and he, too, began to prophesy all the way to Naioth!
    1 Samuel 19:23 NLT

    Even when the enemy comes at us we can hide in HIS presence and HE SURELY WILL KEEP US!!!

    Psalm 23:5KJV
    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

  21. Doing what’s right.

    David had to continue to flee for doing right. Sometimes doing what is right is hard. Keep the faith and do right.

  22. 4 And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good:
    it was a great value in the friendship that Jonathan and David have. it saved David’s life on a number of occasions and as we see in this verse Jonathan spoke well of David and put in a good word for him. It is good to have Godly trustworthy friends on our side it blesses us and even Save Our Lives sometimes.

  23. 18 So David fled, and escaped, and came to Samuel to Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and dwelt in Naioth.

    Too many time in times of trouble we run from the man of God instead of to him! Why is this? Because they will tell us the truth even if we don’t want to hear it. But God places the man of God in our life for guidance and direction and we would be wise to take it!

  24. 9 And the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

    We give way too much credit to the enemy sometimes by blaming him for things we are going through. We find in this chapter it was the Lord that sent the evil spirit to Saul. The Lord was using that evil spirit to shape and form David into a maturity.

    Many times God has to use less desirable situations and circumstances to shape and form us into becoming mature christians. Be careful not to give the enemy credit for something the Lord is doing because then we may miss the entire point of the test or trial and we know if we don’t pass it the first time, we will have to take it again.

  25. 1 Samuel 19:22-23 (KJV Strong’s)

    22 Then went he also to Ramah, and came to a great well that is in Sechu: and he asked and said, Where are Samuel and David? And one said, Behold, they be at Naioth in Ramah.

    23 And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah.

    Matthew 7:22-23 (KJV Strong’s)

    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    Saul, Saul…
    King Saul was anointed. He had the highest position in the land. He was highly respected, had favor of men, and had attained what many would dub as success.

    He even had the spirit of prophecy come upon him a few times.

    From the carnal observer it would seem King Saul had it going on.

    Sadly this was far from the truth.

    As Jesus said “what does is profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?”

    Saul could be used by God but he was far from the ways of God.

    Oh that we would know him and that he would know us.

  26. 23 And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah.

    24 And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?

    Gift does not equal approval.

    The gifts of God are without repentance. God can give a gift and that person work in it even when they no longer walk with God. Having a gift does not mean God approves of everything we are doing. We should continue to search our heart and see if there is anything keeping us out of line with God. It would be devastating to lose our soul because we thought the gift of God equated approval.

  27. 8. And there was war again: and David went out, and fought with the Philistines, and slew them with a great slaughter; and they fled from him.

    Even after Saul tried to kill him, David didn’t sit at home pouting, letting the enemy win, but continued fighting the enemy, winning battles that can’t be won at a pity party.

  28. v24 And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?

    That’s the work of GOD’S SPIRIT. Saul could nolonger pursue David .
    Sometimes we want to be removed from difficulty, but GOD Only promises to protect us while we go through difficult times.
    We shall experience tribulation, but we also find comfort in JESUS’ prayer that nothing should harm us.
    Press on and do GOD’S WILL.

  29. “And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.”(1 Samuel‬ ‭19:20‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

    Saul had wickedness and fury inside him that increased and at first Saul only used secrect practices against David now breaks forth into open and impudent hostilities; plainly declaring that he neither feared God nor reverenced man. So when the messengers were sent to take david and along the way the messengers ran into group of prophets that were prophesying,For though they prophesied by Divine inspiration, which Samuel could not govern; yet they were both to prepare and dispose themselves for it beforehand, and to make good improvement of it afterwards, in both which they needed Samuel’s counsel and assistance.

  30. 18 So David fled, and escaped, and came to Samuel to Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and dwelt in Naioth.

    When in trouble a wise thing to do would be to run to the man of God and seek counsel and advice.

  31. “And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good”. The word of God (Jesus) identified that although David had done no wrong, Saul still wanted him removed. One must simply obey the word of God (Judge), which means all and not just a portion. Dear God, protect and guide us as we seek to be more like you. God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  32. 9 And the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand. 10 And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall with the javelin: but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and escaped that night.

    The Lord can and will do as he so chooses, which is all the more reason why we must pray and seek him. Position, money or power cannot save anyone; however obedience to the Lord can. God help us see and hear you, in Jesus name.

  33. I am humbled to have good friends and family to warn me and live me enough to allow me to avoid trouble. Surround yourself with good friends. And good people. That care about you.

    “But Jonathan Saul’s son delighted much in David: and Jonathan told David, saying, Saul my father seeketh to kill thee: now therefore, I pray thee, take heed to thyself until the morning, and abide in a secret place, and hide thyself:”
    ‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭19:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  34. 20 And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.

    21 And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.

    22 Then went he also to Ramah, and came to a great well that is in Sechu: and he asked and said, Where are Samuel and David? And one said, Behold, they be at Naioth in Ramah.

    23 And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah.

    24 And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?

    Im sorry, but this always cracks me up! No matter how many people he sent to get David, they always ended up prophesying, So i can imagin Saul saying, fine I gotta do it myself, if I want it done correctly, but God was like Oh no Saul, today your gonna prophesy!

  35. 4 And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good:

    5 For he did put his life in his hand, and slew the Philistine, and the Lord wrought a great salvation for all Israel: thou sawest it, and didst rejoice: wherefore then wilt thou sin against innocent blood, to slay David without a cause?

    Jonathan cared for David as a brother. He hid David from Saul; while the evil spirit was upon Saul. Then Jonathan spoke to his father about how David saved the Israelites from the Philistines. Then later Jonathan had to hide David again. This time it was Samuel that took David in. We should always seek the man of God put before us in times of trouble; but always seek God first.

    Thank you Jesus……Amen!!!!

  36. 9 And the evil spirit from the Lord was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.
    10 And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall with the javelin: but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and escaped that night.

    Praising God gives us victory. I kind of feel like if Saul would’ve turned to God and praised Him he wouldn’t be struggling with that evil spirit.

  37. Oh if only Saul would have allowed God to use him more. A trance hits him and he prophesies. It is unfortunate that he was unable to yield to God on his own accord before his fall.

  38. 4 And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good:

    5 For he did put his life in his hand, and slew the Philistine, and the Lord wrought a great salvation for all Israel: thou sawest it, and didst rejoice: wherefore then wilt thou sin against innocent blood, to slay David without a cause?

    6 And Saul hearkened unto the voice of Jonathan: and Saul sware, As the Lord liveth, he shall not be slain.

    Jonathan interceded for David and was able to influence Saul to back off from his malicious attitude towards David. The difference, however, only lasted for a season. After a while, Saul went back to his old ways and attacked David again. When we intercede for souls, just because we feel like there was some breakthrough and victory won doesn’t mean that we will never have to intercede for them again. The powers of darkness are not looking to go down without a fight, evidenced by the fact that they have already been beaten when Jesus died on the cross then rose again and made the way for our salvation. Jesus already won the victory, yet the darkness is bent on doing as much damage as possible and dragging as many souls with them as possible before they are eternally held captive in destruction. Praying once for lost or backslidden souls is not enough, we must continue to press and prevail in prayer so that we continually stand in the gap for those souls that they would not enter eternity lost.

  39. 41As soon as the boy was gone, David came out from where he had been hiding near the stone pile.e Then David bowed three times to Jonathan with his face to the ground. Both of them were in tears as they embraced each other and said good-bye, especially David.

    42At last Jonathan said to David, “Go in peace, for we have sworn loyalty to each other in the LORD’s name. The LORD is the witness of a bond between us and our children forever.” Then David left, and Jonathan returned to the town. NLT

    This is heart wrenching. Two friends that will never see each other again. On David’s journey to be king, he must first beome completely broken. The trials and fire that David is about to face will make him a completely humble and empty vessel…which is exactly what the LORD wants and needs in the person He’s chosen to rule His people.

  40. The trouble with accepting a vow from a person who doesn’t have a heart for God is that they aren’t reliable. Saul is tormented by an evil spirit and much like putting trust in something that will only let you down. Jonathan tries to reason with his father and get his word that he won’t harm David. The wisest thing Jonathan did was warn David. Jonathan wasn’t a snitch he was a friend that could stick closer than a brother.

  41. “After David had run away and escaped, he went to Samuel at Ramah. He told him everything Saul had done to him. Then David and Samuel went to Naioth and stayed there. Saul was told, “David is in Naioth at Ramah.” So Saul sent some men to capture him. When they got there, they saw a group of prophets who were prophesying. Samuel was standing there as their leader. Then the Spirit of God came on Saul’s men. So they also began to prophesy. Saul was told about it. So he sent some more men. They began to prophesy too. Saul sent some men a third time. And they also began to prophesy.

    So Saul went to Naioth at Ramah. But the Spirit of God even came on him. He walked along and prophesied until he came to Naioth. There he took off his royal robes. Then he prophesied in front of Samuel. He lay there without his robes on all that day and night. That’s why people say, “Is Saul also one of the prophets?””
    ‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭19:18-21, 23-24‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    God always has one more move. Our enemies may think they have us trapped but My God always has one more move. 

  42. “And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good: For he did put his life in his hand, and slew the Philistine, and the Lord wrought a great salvation for all Israel: thou sawest it, and didst rejoice: wherefore then wilt thou sin against innocent blood, to slay David without a cause? And Saul hearkened unto the voice of Jonathan: and Saul sware, As the Lord liveth, he shall not be slain.”
    ‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭19:4-6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Jonathan is a good friend that reminds people of all those wonderful things that are done because he loves David so much.

  43. 4 The next morning Jonathan spoke with his father about David, saying many good things about him. “The king must not sin against his servant David,” Jonathan said. “He’s never done anything to harm you. He has always helped you in any way he could.

    It’s a good thing to have a friend you can lean on and trust., someone that will vouch for your character.
