A bad decision is a bad decision, whether it’s made by a faithful follower of God or a sin-prone pagan. And in 1 Samuel 29:1-11, we’re going to see that both Saul and David had made some particularly lousy decisions that had left them both in a lot of trouble. But the big difference was that David had not been abandoned by God, while Saul had. He was on his own. And his bad decisions were going to produce even worse outcomes. There would be no last-minute reprieve or a last-ditch rescue by God. But David was going to find himself miraculously rescued from the mess he had made because His God still had plans for him. David wasn’t always the brightest bulb in the box, but he had a love for God and a desire to do the right thing. And while he was fully capable of making some highly questionable decisions, his God was by his side, using his poor choices to teach David lifelong lessons about trust and faith.
