For most of 1 Samuel, we see David in God's seminary of preparation. As Saul jealously and murderously pursued him, David went through all kinds of trials that taught him to trust and obey the Lord no matter what. Everything he experienced made him fit for God's purposes for his life. Did you know that God does that for us too? Every day we live prepares us for every other day we are going to live. If we love God and are called according to His purposes, everything we experience contributes to what God wants us to do in our future (see Romans 8:28).
