Today's Favorite Verse: 1 Samuel 23:26-27

Today's Favorite Verse: 1 Samuel 23:26-27
"And Saul went on this side of the mountain, and David and his men on that side of the mountain: and David made haste to get away for fear of Saul; for Saul and his men compassed David and his men round about to take them.
"But there came a messenger unto Saul, saying, Haste thee, and come; for the Philistines have invaded the land."

This scripture made me think of Doctrine and Covenants 109:25
"That no weapon formed against them shall prosper; that he who diggeth a pit for them shall fall into the same himself;"

While Saul was intent on killing David he left the land open to the invasion of the Philistines. Was he not the Philistines prey as David  was for Saul? The hunter becomes hunted. This tells me that when I going chasing after what I shouldn't, the enemy will come in through the back door. You simply cannot prosper when you are fighting against God.

Day 834
