    So many of us comprimise ourselves for the ways of others or for the fear of how others will precieve or think about us,we lose our core values,that voice that says this isn't you,don't do it,we get lost along the way but with God on our side,we BECOME the light in the darkest of places,think of the 8 ball in pool,all black but the white circle in the middle,thats the light you carry:) GOD BLESS U

    David was a 'backslider' here in going to the Philistines for protection. He (temporarily) lost faith in God. Had he sought God's will in this situation with Saul God would have given him a better way; God is the 'way maker'. But he looked to his own wisdom in this - which displeased God, but God kept him anyway because God knew his heart.

    I think deception is a big part of our lives today. Deceiving the government and our employers in the work place. Even in the church, pretending to be something we are not just to get ahead in life or ahead of someone else.
    This deception has cause us to take on the David syndrome of misleading only ourselves into the captives of hell, in which I myself am guilty from my ignorance. Forgive me.....
