14:10   Shall I go up against the Philistines

David understood that success is dependent upon God’s consent and aid. Therefore, although he is a superior warrior and general, he asks the Almighty if he should proceed before attacking the Philistines. By doing so, David teaches a crucial lesson about the importance of acting within the bounds of divine consent, especially in God’s chosen land.

    SO DAVID ENQUIRED OF GOD, SHALL I GO UP AGAINST THE PHILISTINES, AND WILL YOU HAND THEM OVER TO ME, THEN THE LORD SAID TO HIM, GO UP, AND I WILL HAND THEM OVER TO YOU.
