1 Samuel 18:20-24, 28-30
“Now Saul’s daughter Michal was in love with David, and when they told Saul about it, he was pleased” 1 Samuel 18:20.
There are people in this world that choose to hate other people for no just reason. As long as others around them are progressing they are filled with bitterness. They can even go to the extent of plotting evil against these people just to see them fail. But God has a way of dealing with such people. He has a way of bringing their counsel to naught. David found himself in a similar situation when the daughter of Saul fell in love with him.
Saul wanted the downfall of David at all cost just because God was with him. Because of his ulterior motive, he agreed that David can marry Michal, his daughter on the condition that he will bring one hundred foreskins of the Philistines. This was a suicide mission because there was no way David will get the foreskin of the Philistines without going to war with them. Saul had forgotten that when God is involved the impossible becomes possible. David did not only bring hundred, he brought additional hundred to prove to Saul that indeed God was with him. It does not matter how many people have risen against you. All that matters is that you have God in your camp and your victory will be assured. When you have God on your side He will make every evil planned against you to work for your favour.
