The Spirit upon them

statement

Then the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard this news, and his anger was greatly aroused.

1 Samuel 11:6 [NKJV]

Reading this I wondered, why Saul left God's way later. What made him differ from David - hadn't the spirit of God descended on both of them. Of course, the answer is, "Yes, but..." - but the Spirit did not only come upon David. It is written that He rushed trough him and from that day on and stayed(see chapter 13:14). So the goal or the system should not be to just force the Holy Spirit to come into our lives, but to live a life that the Spirit is fine to be in. The Spirit upon or in us? Flying by or staying for life?
