DAVID: (Study 20): God Restrained the Hand of David Against Israel

I Samuel 29:1-11

Secured on the side of the enemy, David was a Saint in the wrong place. He was faithful enough to his host-the Prince of Gath, to follow him as re-reward to battle against Saul and Israel.

It took the divine intervention to restrain David and His men from going to that battle with the philistines even at the very last minute. It was a great deliverance from an impending abomination.
