The next Home Group study on David caused a lot discussion as to why did God allow David to go from
being the peoples choice as ruler, as shown by their songs and celebrations (It even came to light that one of the surrounding countries thought he was the King already) to hiding in the city of the enemy pretending to be to suffering from madness and fearing for his life.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55 8-9
The fact of the matter is that he goes from being the most popular/famous person in the country at the time, to the most wanted outlaw/fugitive over a fairly short number of weeks. This is a totally unjustified situation but Saul’s insecurity makes him perceive David as a threat to his position and so must be got rid of at any cost. A situation that can be found repeated time and time again over the ages all through power structures.
Fortunately David does not despair and give up trusting in God as the next study will show.
