GLBC_Box2011God’s package bundle of the living is stated in 1 Samuel 25:18-42. So contains lives of all who trust him eternally while fighting God’s battles within and without. God, Jehovah Nissi Personally Secures David’s personal care and protection in God’s Life Package Bundle. David defeats Goliath to protect Saul and the nation yet seen as threat by Saul who tried to kill David several times in vain. So David was on the run pursued by Saul due to envy and jealousy. David’s army of follower band of 400 at Adullam increased to 600 soldiers around him. Afterwards added Cherethites and Pelethites as standing army retained after David becomes king in 1 Samuel 23:13. David’s body-guard army protected, defended farms, and crops from marauding band raiders. So David’s army provided a useful service to help using military skill tactics knowledge to defeat enemies. In return David humbles himself to ask Nabal for supplies not taking it by force without permission. Nabal’s denies David’s request to help treating David as vagabond on run.

Abigail brought presents to David to atone for Nabal’s contempt. Above all, Abigail managed to appeal to speak to king in David. David though living in caves was pursued by Saul believed God preserved his life for a reason. To ensure star on David’s throne survives for the birth of Jesus Christ not to be vanquished. So David’s life was precious in God’s sight and David’s house endures for fighting God’s battles. She relied on God’s grace to soften David’s heart to impact David powerfully. She said it is beneath David the giant killer to condescend to take vengeance on weak meagre meniscus ant despicable enemy Nabal incapable of showing kindness to David. Nabal could not understand significant value and importance of honouring such a great king like David. As a king ordained by God Abigail told David, hurting Nabal was beneath his status in the reputation of giants killed by David. So reminded David of his glorious end from present troubles. giftbox1 (1)God preserves David’s life justly so not to take unnecessarily weak defenceless lives away. The precious lives of especially the people of God his Saviour. Abigail powerful Godly message touched David the Psalmist so indulged his passion of praising God. David’s conscience, peace, calm reinforced did not to waste his brilliant military reputation on insignificant ordinary person like Nabal. So the sweetness of God’s words touched the revengeful heart of David to mellow him not to slaughter in snubbed anger, revenge, bitterness. So David changed to accept the pleas of Abigail and reconsidered his image in fighting a helpless weak man like Nabal. Abigail was submissive, yielding to pacify great offence. She was penitent petitioner so did not excuse husband’s conduct. So blessed David with 3 blessings, she prayed, in verse 28, “please forgive transgression of your maidservant for God will certainly make for my lord an enduring house. Because my lord is fighting battles of God evil will not be found in you all your days. 29 Should anyone rise up to pursue you to seek your life, the life of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of the living with the LORD your God. But the lives of your enemies He will sling out as from the hollow of a sling. 30 And when the LORD does for my lord according to all the good He has spoken concerning you, and appoints you ruler over Israel the LORD your God will keep your life safe like a treasure hidden in a secured package.

leadership_cappedDavid’s is bound up in bundle of righteousness as a lover of God. God decides to let the Godly ones be preserved forever in heaven by God’s Good Choice. But God lets evil ones go out from God’s bundle of life eternally to be punished in hell by their own doing. God keeps eternal souls of people safe but enemies thrown out. David said to Abigail, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel who sent provisions to bless souls with God bound in bundle of life with Jehovah God. David said to Abigail, Blessed be the Lord. 18 Abigail acted quickly so took 200 hundred loaves of bread, 2 skins of wine, 5 dressed sheep, 5 seahs of roasted grain, a 100 cakes of raisins and 200 cakes of pressed figs, and loaded them on donkeys.19 Then told her servants, go on ahead I will follow you but she did not tell her husband Nabal. 20 She came riding her donkey into a mountain ravine, where David and his men descending toward her met them. 21 David said, it was useless watching over property in the wilderness so nothing of was missing but paid back evil for good. 22 David furious so said will severely kill all males in morning belonging to Nabal!”23 So Abigail, before David’s deadline went secretly to supply food and drinks to David. 

She quickly got off her donkey, bowed down before David with face to the ground. 24 She fell at his feet and said, “Pardon your servant, my lord to let me speak to you so hear what your servant has to say. 25 Please pay no attention, my lord, to the wicked man Nabal the Fool for folly goes with him. I did not see the men my lord sent.26 Now, my lord, as surely as God lives and as you live, God kept you from bloodshed from avenging yourself with your own hands. May your enemies and all intent on harming my lord be Nabal.27 And let this gift brought to my lord, be given to men who follow you. God’s enemies intent on hurting God’s children since 70 years in Auschwitz in Poland killed many innocent people due to greed, envy, jealousy, xenophobia, ignorance because man’s heart is very evil. But will pay for their evil deeds on God’s judgement day if they do not repent, ask God’s forgiveness and mercy in Jesus Name. Absolute power makes abusers feel in control but God deals with them. David forgave Abigail’s family so Nabal heard David’s threat. Abigail’s intervention saved all the men but Nabal had heart attack from shock orchestrated by God. So died as tyrant who refused to help David. Abigail’s fear of God, wisdom, maturity impressed David who married her to make her queen.
