1 Samuel 22:1-23:29; John 10:1-21; Psalm 115:1-18; Proverbs 15:18-19

Nothing can stop your destiny. As we look at David’s ascension to the Throne, it was a rocky one. Samuel anointed him and you would think it would be an easy path to be King. Quite the contrary! Saul pursued David in order to kill him. Saul was so vengeful that he even killed people who helped David.

Yet, in all of Saul’s searching, he was always one step behind David! The more he searched, the more he missed him. God was ordering David’s steps. David would not take a step until he heard from The Lord as to what he should do. David was then bold enough to listen when God gave him instructions. David’s obedience is what protected his life against the assaults of Saul.

God didn’t just do this for David, He does this for all His children. God has anointed you to accomplish certain things in life and that is your assignment. Believe that nothing can stop you or even kill you before you accomplish that for which God put you on this earth. Your purpose can keep you alive.
