chronological day 112 :)

Oh my, here we go! a Big list of passages to read today, but not really much more than we usually read.  Remember, if it is a repeat, it probably means that it is important! Please read: 2 Samuel 5:1-3, 1 Chronicles 11:1-3, 1 Chronicles 12:23-40, 2 Samuel 5:17-25, 1 Chronicles 14:8-17, 2 Samuel 5:6-10, 1 Chronicles 11:4-9, 2 Samuel 5:13, 2 Samuel 5:4-5, 5:11-12, 1 Chronicles 14:1-2, 1 Chronicles 13:1-5, 2 Samuel 6:1-11, and 1 Chronicles 13:6-14 (phew!).  You got this!  I’ll be brief – you’ve already read a lot today!

It’s been 15ish years since Samuel anointed David king – and now he finally becomes king of all of Israel. Can you believe it?  

“All the leaders of Israel met with King David at Hebron, and the king made a treaty with them in the presence of God. And so they anointed David king over Israel” (2 Samuel 5:3 MSG)

God is faithful always, even if it seems to take a while! It’s good to see the tribes of Israel rallying again, and we see some names today to remember for later (Solomon for example). Big day today!

    In today’s reading I see David consulting with the Lord asking him not once but twice, Should he go out and fight the Philistines? God answered David because they had a covenant of love, understanding and Faith. But one of Davd’s first acts as King was to bring the Ark back to his homeland and in doing so David consulted with the elders of Israel not GOD. If my memory serves me correctly there is a proper way of carrying the ark. Not in the presence of just anyone and it was to be covered or enclosed with the holy curtains and guided by Priests. Not sure if Aaron’s family tree still existed at this time but priests none the least. None of these were present so I imagine the Lord although faithful to David was angry when Uhhza touched the Ark.
    Today’s takeaway: when we think we have it made don’t turn away from our savior, we’ll still need his love and guidance.
