They Found an Egyptian

Morning Service
Sep 6, 2020

David hit rock bottom when he and his army returned to Ziklag to find their home destroyed and their families taken captive. After David sought the Lord, though, he and his men defeated the enemy, rescued their loved ones, and recovered everything that had been taken. Alistair Begg examines how a “chance” encounter with an Egyptian servant led to David’s triumph, which he graciously shared, foreshadowing the eternal victory only King Jesus is able to secure.
