When the Philistines heard that David was the anointed king of Israel, they went in search of him. They deployed themselves in the Valley of Rephaim. Twice David inquired of the Lord regarding the action he should take with the Philistines. God told him what to do and David obeyed and both times the Philistines were defeated.
When it came to making these important decisions, David sought the Lord for His counsel and the outcome was very favorable for David and Israel.
