While David was at Horesh in the Desert of Ziph, he learned that Saul had come out to take his life.
David had every right to be afraid. In today’s Bible verse, we see that He had Saul on the way to kill him. Talk about a scary situation! Saul was the king of the nation, so he had lots of resources available to go after David and kill him. And Saul wasn’t afraid to be using them. The verse tells us he was on his way to take David’s life.
David had a legitimate reason to be afraid. He was facing something really big!

Fear Feels Big
Fear in our lives always feels bigger than what we can handle. We face a problem and it just seems like it’s bigger and scarier than we want to deal with. Problems can often cause you to want to give up or hide from them because they’re just too scary.
However, when you’re faced with fear, realize that even though it often appears bigger than you, you’re not dealing with it alone. God is there He’s for you, and with His help, you can face anything that you fear.
Fear is defeated when you realize that even though it seems big, God is bigger and you can conquer fear with Him!
