1 Samuel 22:3

We must be willing to get back on track when we go astray, and to seek God’s will.   ~~~   Not only did David’s brothers and other men gather around him, but so too did his parents, because, very likely, their lives were under threat by Saul as well. So David ushers them over to Moab. And here, once again, is the providence of God working through first and second causes, setting up a refuge for David’s parents in their time of need. But what is of more importance at this point is what David says to the King of Moab—“Let my father and mother stay with you until I know what God will do for me.” It appears that David is back on track! And this is what differentiates David from Saul. David seeks the LORD, ready and willing to repent and listen and obey. And don’t you know David’s heart was done good when he saw the prophet Gad stroll down the dusty dirt road. Here comes God’s answer. God is speaking through Gad, God’s prophet, and David is quick and happy to obey. Are you back on track? Is the prayer and cry of your heart, “I must know what God’s will is?” And are you willing to hear Him speak through His word?
