Welcome back and happy Friday to all. Today's reading is found in 2 Samuel 6-7.
Take-away from this chapter: Though we are to praise Him, we must revere and fear Him (Uzzah is struck down), and our worship should be undignified in the fact that we are not concerned with what people think as we celebrate the LORD'S goodness.
This is one of my favorite chapters in all the Bible. I truly believe David's prayer is one of the most humble, sincere prayers throughout Scriptures and one I read regularly. I particularly like how he says, "Who am I, LORD, that you have brought me this far?" I try to pray this as often as I can. I believe if we look with humility and gratitude at all the LORD has done for us and all the ways He has blessed us it is impossible to not have this prayer as a response. I also like when he says, "Do you deal with everyone this way, O Sovereign LORD?" I can just sense David's emotion in this passage. He is overwhelmed by the moment. I just wonder if have these moments before the LORD like this as often as we should?
What about you? I would love to hear how this passage struck you.
