    • Job 17:15 Where then is my hope? Can anyone find it?
    • 1. What David lost:
    • a. Wife1 Samuel 19:11 Saul sent men to David’s house to watch it and to kill him in the morning. But Michal, David’s wife, warned him, “If you don’t run for your life tonight, tomorrowyou’ll be killed.” 12 So Michal letDavid down through a window, and he fled and escaped.
    • Psalm 59:14 My enemies come out atnight, snarling like vicious dogs as theyprowl the streets. 15 They scavenge forfood but go to sleep unsatisfied. 16 Butas for me, I will sing about your power.Each morning I will sing with joy aboutyour unfailing love. For you have beenmy refuge, a place of safety when I am in distress. 17 O my Strength, to you I sing praises, for you, O God, are my refuge, the God who shows me unfailing love.
    • b. House1 Samuel 19:11 Saul sent men toDavid’s house to watch it and to kill him in the morning. But Michal, David’s wife, warned him, “If you don’t run for your life tonight, tomorrow you’ll be killed.” 12 So Michal let David down through awindow, and he fled and escaped.
    • c. Job1 Samuel 19:11 Saul sent men to David’s house to watch it and to kill him in the morning. But Michal, David’s wife, warned him, “If you don’t run for your life tonight, tomorrowyou’ll be killed.” 12 So Michal letDavid down through a window, and he fled and escaped.
    • d. Pastor 1 Samuel 19:18 When David had fled and made his escape, he went to Samuel at Ramah and told him all that Saul had done to him. Then he and Samuel went to Naioth and stayed there. 1 Samuel 20:1 Then David fled fromNaioth at Ramah and went to Jonathan and asked, “What have I done? Whatis my crime? How have I wronged your father, that he is trying to kill me?”
    • e. Best friend 1 Samuel 20:42 Jonathan said to David, “Go in peace, for we have sworn friendship with each other inthe name of the LORD, saying, ‘The LORD is witness between you andme, and between your descendantsand my descendants forever.’” Then David left, and Jonathan went back to the town.
    • f. Dignity1 Samuel 21:12 David took thesewords to heart and was very muchafraid of Achish king of Gath. 13 Sohe pretended to be insane in their presence; and while he was in their hands he acted like a madman, making marks on thedoors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard.
    • Psalm 56:8 You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in yourbook. 9 My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help. This I know: God is on my side! 10 I praise God for what he has promised;Yes, I praise the LORD for what he has promised. 11 I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?
    • Psalm 34:17 The LORDhears his people when they call to him for help. Herescues them from all their troubles. The LORD is 18close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
    • 2. What David learned:
    • a. We attract what we are.1 Samuel 22:1 So David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. Soon his brothers and all his other relatives joined him there. 2 Then others began coming—men who were introuble or in debt or who were justdiscontented—until David was the captain of about 400 men.
    • 1.In trouble 2. In debt3. Discontented
    • b. Be the best, give your best, even at your worse. 1 Samuel 22:1 So David left Gath and escaped to the cave ofAdullam. Soon his brothers and allhis other relatives joined him there.2 Then others began coming—men who were in trouble or in debt or who were just discontented—untilDavid was the captain of about 400 men.
    • c. Hope wins. Jesus was enough. Psalm 142:5 Then Ipray to you, O LORD. Isay, “You are my placeof refuge. You are all I really want in life.
    • Psalms 143:7 Come quickly, LORD, and answer me, for mydepression deepens.Don’t turn away from me, or I will die.
    • Revelation 22:20 Hewho testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
    • Revelation 21:1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and thefirst earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be theirGod. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
