3 He came to the sheep pens along the way; a cave was there, and Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were far back in the cave. 4 The men said, "This is the day the LORD spoke of when he said [a] to you, 'I will give your enemy into your hands for you to deal with as you wish.' "1 Samuel 24:3-4
Ok, you've been running for your life and everywhere you turn there is Saul or his men trying to kill you. You are outnumbered 5 to 1, running for your life in the wilderness, the army is approaching quickly; do you stand and fight or do you take cover?
You spot a cave and all 600 of you crawl in. You hear them coming…shh, don't give it away! You move further back in the cave. Can you imagine how fast your heart is racing?
Shh, someone's coming!
Are you kidding? It's Saul!
His eyes haven't adjusted to the lack of light in the cave; he doesn't see you, yet.
What's he doing? Taking a leak, you've got to be kidding…is this a bad movie?
Think how your emotions change, the fear is leaving and the anger and rage are growing. Stupid Saul, the one who is trying to kill you walks
into your hands!
The men remind you of the prophecy "God told you He would put your enemy in your hand"; God is good!
Can't you see it; guys rubbing their hands together in anticipation, the smirks on their mouths, the nodding of heads, this is the moment.
What would you do?
Maybe you've had that kind of opportunity before.
Did you take out your enemy?
Did you take advantage of the situation, I mean come on, don't you have the right?
David did…he was to be king…Saul had attempted murder 6 times…he was evil…come on David, take him out!
David, he's yours, deal with him as you wish.
