He waited for a word from heaven

Ed M. helps us understand David’s despair in 1 Sam 30.6 and how that serves as an example for us.

David did not ask God for a miracle. He did not plead for a legion of angels. He asked for advice. He waited for a word from heaven. Then he moved ahead, Psalms 16:7. Difficulties were overcome. Victories were won. All went well because everyone went with God. A few months later David was crowned king over the nation of Israel.
