1 Samuel 21:10-15, “So David escaped from Saul and went to King Achish of Gath. But the officers of Achish were unhappy about his being there. “Isn’t this David, the king of the land?” they asked. “Isn’t he the one the people honor with dances, singing, ‘Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands’?” David heard these comments and was very afraid of what King Achish of Gath might do to him. So he pretended to be insane, scratching on doors and drooling down his beard. Finally, King Achish said to his men, “Must you bring me a madman? We already have enough of them around here! Why should I let someone like this be my guest?”
David is running from Saul and for a moment, is overcome by fear. At this low point in his life, he acts like a crazy man before the king of Gath. David was beyond the point of simply experiencing fear. He let fear control him. Any one of us can be subject to fear when we are tired, hurt, or emotionally low. In order to ensure we don’t start doing wrong things and going places we should avoid, we must remain deeply connected to God. His love will cast out any fear, no matter how great. Pray for God to remove any fear that may be hindering you from moving into all that He has for you. Pray as we gather for our Hot Night Service tonight at 7pm that God will move in a big way.
