Then Saul said to David, “May you be blessed, David my son; you will do great things and surely triumph.”
(1 Samuel 26:25 NIV)
Just a few chapters before, Saul made a similar confession:
“I know that you will surely be king and that the kingdom of Israel will be established in your hands.” (1 Samuel 24:20)
Saul eventually realized that the Lord had chosen David to replace him as king. But this knowledge made him all the more eager to get rid of David. When Jesus Christ, the Lord’s Anointed, came, His enemies wanted Him dead too. They tried to deny His miracles and turn people against Him, but they couldn’t stop God’s will from being fulfilled.
It’s been said that “The ones who say “you can’t” and “you won’t” are probably the ones scared that you will.” I couldn’t agree more.
