A Man After God’s Own Heart, Part Seven: When Faith Fails I (1 Sam. 18:17-19:24)

Rather than trusting God to protect him, he began to engineer his own escape through deceit and subterfuge. Isn’t that often our problem? Don’t we often give lip service to trusting God, but when the rubber meets the road we don’t put that faith into action? Perhaps we can learn some lessons from this episode in David’s life.
