David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his father’s household heard about it, they went down to him there. 2 All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their commander. About four hundred men were with him. –   1 Samuel 22:1-5
I. The Cave of Protection – 22:1-2  – “David escaped to the cave of Adullam”.
God not only will place you in a place to PROTECT YOU ….But he will place you in a place to PROTECT WHAT HE IS GOING TO DO THROUGH YOU.
God’s dream for you is so much bigger than your dream for you. – He places you in that cave to protect HIS VISION FOR YOU. – IF YOU GO DOWN THE VISION GOES DOWN!
2. The cave of Preparation  – When you are down to nothing – God is up to something!
 David’s family joined David at the cave for two reasons:
(1)Support
What an encouragement to have his family (COMMUNITY) with him and behind him. At the beginning the brothers were  jealous of him. He had been anointed as king instead of them. But those hard feelings have vanished and  they seek David out in the cave.
(2)Safety
Saul not only wanted to kill David, he wanted to kill David’s family as well.
-Add to that the fact that his brothers had been in Saul’s army. They had to desert Saul’s army to join  David and desertion meant death.
David’s TRIBE OF THE TROUBLED
2 All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their commander. About four hundred men were with him. –   1 Samuel 22:1-5
