Sermon Series: David: After God's Heart

Finding God in a Cave

1 Samuel 22:1-3; Psalm 57, 142

James A. Mann, Ph.D., Lead Pastor

The Cave (1 Sam. 22:1; Psalm 142)

The Cave, Part II

The Challenge (1 Samuel 22:1-2; Psa. 68.6)

The Change (2 Chron. 16:9; Psalm 57, 34)

David wrote Psalm 34 in the cave: “Proclaim the Lord’s greatness with me; let us exalt his name together.” (Psalm 34:3)

  • To the desperate: “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and rescued me from all my fears.” (Psalm 34:4)
  • To the debtors: “This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him from all his troubles.” (Psalm 34:6)
  • To the discontent: “Taste and see that the Lord is good. How happy is the person who takes refuge in him!” (Psalm 34:8)
  • To all: “One who is righteous has many adversities, but the Lord rescues him from them all.” (Psalm 34:19)

Leaving the Cave (1 Sam. 22:3)

  • He admitted his need
  • He cried for help
  • He learned from God

A cave is a great place to hide, but not a great place to live.

You’re not alone.

There are others out there.


This week read Psalms 57 and 142.
