Our Daily Bread 7 July 2022 Devotional For Today, Thursday: Message Written By James Banks (Our Daily Bread Ministries) || ODB  Daily Reading Now 

TOPIC: Hurry Up and Wait

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 22:1–5

22 David left Gath and escaped to the caves of Adullam.t When his brothers and his father’s household heard about it, they went down to him there.

2 All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their commander. About four hundred men were with him.

3 From there David went to Mizpah in Moab and said to the king of Moab, “Would you let my father and mother come and stay with you until I learn what God will do for me?”

4 So he left them with the king of Moab,v and they stayed with him as long as David was in the stronghold.

5 But the prophet Gad said to David, “Do not stay in the stronghold. Go into the land of Judah.” So David left and went to the forest of Hereth.

KEY VERSE: Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. – Psalm 27:14

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Job 34–35; Acts 15:1–21

ODB FOR TODAY’S INSIGHT: In 1 Samuel 22, David had fled from King Saul to a cave after unsuccessfully hiding out in Gath. In his commentary, David Guzik notes: “He couldn’t go to his house, he couldn’t go to the palace, he couldn’t go to Samuel, he couldn’t go to Jonathan, he couldn’t go to the house of the Lord, and he couldn’t go to the ungodly. But he could go to a humble cave and find refuge. . . . The name Adullam means refuge, but the cave wasn’t to be David’s refuge.”

As the opening to Psalm 57 tells us, this psalm was written while David hid in that cave. There he sought and found refuge in “the shadow of [God’s] wings” (v. 1) so that he could declare, “I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; . . . for great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies” (vv. 9–10).

MESSAGE

“What will we do with all our spare time?” That thought was at the heart of an essay published in 1930 by the economist John Maynard Keynes. In it, Keynes proposed that within a hundred years, technological and economic advances would bring humans to a point where we would work only three hours a day and fifteen hours a week.

It’s been more than ninety years since Keynes published his famous essay. But technology, instead of creating more leisure, has made us busier than ever. Our days are full, and while everyday tasks like travel and meal preparation take less time, we’re still in a hurry.

One striking incident from David’s life shows us how to stay steady in life’s rush. When he was fleeing King Saul (who was trying to kill him), he asked the king of Moab, “Would you let my father and mother come and stay with you until I learn what God will do for me?” (1 Samuel 22:3, italics added). David had his hands full. He was trying to escape Saul’s murderous pursuits and also provide for his family. But even in his hurry, he took the time to wait on God.

When life’s frenetic pace sweeps us along, we can trust the One who can keep us in His peace (Isaiah 26:3). David’s words sum up the matter well: “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).
