1 Samuel 11

Verse 13, "But Saul said, 'No one shall be put to death today, for this day the Lord has rescued Israel.'"

Saul had his chance to get rid of those who were against him. He could have removed them completely and shown everyone else that came against him what the result would be. Instead, Saul was compassionate. He kept his focus on God. It was God's day, not Saul's day. He wanted to celebrate what God had done on the battle field in rescuing his people.

I must remember that today is the day that the Lord has made and rejoice in it. God is my rescue and my shield. God is my Savior. God loves me and wants the best for me. When people speak against me they speak against Him. I put my trust in Him. This is His day.
