Today’s passage is a flashback to the days before David’s coronation, when he was hiding in the Judean desert from Saul. For sixteen months Achish, a Philistine king, offered David and his mighty men refuge at Ziklag. Nevertheless, David knew that God was his real Defender, and that the Lord saw all things. This knowledge can make every believer fearless in our spiritual battles. Please open your Bible to First Chronicles chapter twelve, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of this chapter.
