David Part 2 | The Shepherd King

Laws and government are not how people dynamically change people. Entertainment is. Its one of the most powerful ways people can influence and change people.  It goes without saying that the best, and only reasonable way to change people is through a relationship with God.   It is no coincidence that He uses music as well.

Joseph Blough 

Spirit-Filled Music

Scripture: 1 Samuel 16:14-23

But the Spirit of the Lord had left Saul, and instead, the Lord had sent a tormenting spirit that filled him with depression and fear. 15-16 Some of Saul’s aides suggested a cure.

“We’ll find a good harpist to play for you whenever the tormenting spirit is bothering you,” they said. “The harp music will quiet you and you’ll soon be well again.”

17 “All right,” Saul said. “Find me a harpist.”

18 One of them said he knew a young fellow in Bethlehem, the son of a man named Jesse, who was not only a talented harp player, but was handsome, brave, and strong, and had good, solid judgment. “What’s more,” he added, “the Lord is with him.”

19 So Saul sent messengers to Jesse, asking that he send his son David the shepherd. 20 Jesse responded by sending not only David but a young goat and a donkey carrying a load of food and wine. 21 From the instant he saw David, Saul admired and loved him; and David became his bodyguard.

22 Then Saul wrote to Jesse, “Please let David join my staff, for I am very fond of him.”

23 And whenever the tormenting spirit from God troubled Saul, David would play the harp and Saul would feel better, and the evil spirit would go away.


Music does have a power and it can draw, it can repel, it can inspire in good ways and bad.
