    David was under divine protection; He had a purpose to fulfill and a time in which to fulfill it.

    I love Matthew Uche's testimony. It was 'spot on'!!!
  • Irene123
    1 Sam. 19: 20- means God ALLOWED satan to put an evil spirit in Saul. God is in control of - everything. God gave Saul plenty of chances to follow God. At some point in our lives He will leave off 'striveing' with us, if we refuse to turn to Him.

    They both mean the same thing

    Isaiah 45:7 "I form the light, I create darkness: I make peace, I create evil: I the LORD do all these things."
    I do not believe there are two kinds of evil. This verse tells us the Lord is responsible for "all" these things.
    Evil people are wicked, they cause destruction and they will end in destruction. Amen.
  • Dave
    Study the word 'evil' in your bible. You will see two different kinds of evil. One is destructiveness and one is wickedness. Obviously God is not responsible for wickedness.
