1 Samuel 25:29

Even when you are chased by those who seek to kill you, your life is safe in the care of the LORD your God, secure in his treasure pouch!

I love this! Secure in God's treasure pouch. Most people wear a treasure pouch the safest place on them and think about it David is safe in God's treasure pouch!

So are we!

Abigail was so smart. Two men that were reacting with pride and no thought were about to proceed in a manner that would not be good, but she steps down off her donkey humble to remind David of his role in the LORD'S PLAN. David knew immediately that she was right and that God sent her to remind him of his important role.

Again, it was David's choice on how to respond. He could still decide to go and ignore Abigail's words or to turn back without hurting anyone. How often does God place someone in our path with words that He knows we need to hear and it is our choice which path we take? Do we take the words and be reminded that we are secure in God's treasure pouch or do we react on our own? After all, if David had reacted on his own by killing Nabal things would have looked different. The same is true of us. Listen for the words that God might be sending to you from someone that crosses your path today. I will be listening!
