In the Nick of Time… - 1 Samuel 23:1-29

In 1 Samuel 23 David and Saul are involved in a cat-and-mouse game. Saul is the “cat” and David is the “mouse.” Both Saul and David have access to human informants. However, David seeks divine direction, while Saul places his trust in human intelligence. Consequently, David the mouse evades Saul the cat. David’s success reveals that in times of adversity we must seek God’s will; He will direct us in all our ways. Specifically, this text reveals that God loves last minute heroics. 1. David succeeds at Keilah (23:1-14). 2. Saul fails at Ziph (23:15-29).

The Original Survivor - 1 Samuel 21-22

In 1 Samuel 21-22 we will travel through the wilderness with the original "Sole Survivor" - King David. By the conclusion of the story, I think you'll agree that David could have won any of the Survivor television contests. 1. David flees to Ahimelech (21:1-9). David flees to Achish (21:10-15). David flees to Ahimelech (22:1-5). 4. The slaughter of Nob (22:6-23).

God’s University - 1 Samuel 19-20

Although seasons of preparation can be especially painful, this is how God works faithfulness into His children. Today, you may feel like you’re waiting in the wings. But God may be preparing you for a great task. Why not willingly enroll in God’s University and let Him determine your graduation date? 1. Jonathan saves David’s life (19:1-7). 2. David eludes Saul again (19:8-10). 3. Michael saves David’s life (19:11-17). 4. God Himself saves David’s life (19:18-24). 5. Jonathan and David talk together (20:1-23). 6. Jonathan and Saul talk together (20:24-34). While David hid in the field, Jonathan returned home to the palace (20:24). 7. Jonathan and David talk together (20:35-42).

Facing Your Giant - 1 Samuel 17:1-54

Giants can only be defeated if we face them head on. Thus, the question that we’ll consider is: How can we defeat our giants? In the familiar story of David and Goliath we find an answer that is as relevant today as it was 3,000 years ago. 1. Israel encounters a seemingly impossible situation (17:1-11). 2. David volunteers for a seemingly impossible situation (17:12-30). 3. David conquers Goliath and vindicates God’s honor (17:31-54).
