David and his men escaped a terrible situation. They had no way to escape. If they backed off, then the Philistines would immediately sense David’s scheme and destroy them. If they went forward, David and his men would be fighting the Lord and his people. God intervened into this difficult situation and solved the unsolvable.
We should realize that no matter how difficult our situation, God can make a way of escape. God’s interception enabled David and his men to exit a nightmarish situation. If we find ourselves in a very difficult situation where there seems to be no good solution, we should trust God to help us find an escape. God is able. He is willing. Trust Him.
