Peacemaker or Peace Breaker?…

Read: 1 Samuel 18-20; Psalms 11, Psalms 59
Marked: Psalms 11:5, The LORD tests the righteous, But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.

David was being persecuted by Saul. David could easily have fought against Saul and overthrown him, but he doesn’t. How easily am I turned away from following Jesus when the world overwhelms me?

There are many things which anger me and in my anger I am tempted to fight back. But God will allow these things to see how I respond. He will test us, try us, and prove us. But in righteousness we must trust in the Lord.

We are to be peacemakers not peace breakers. We are to trust in the Lord with all our heart and not lean on our own understanding. God will deal with the world at the right time and in the right way.
