I have chosen the way of truth; I have set your ordinances before me. Psalm 119:30 CSB
2 Samuel 6
Where the Presence of the Lord is at, blessing flows in abundance. Lord, may the people of Kona Faith Center desire Your Presence with all of their hearts. How sad for those who despise God because that is really what Michal did when she despised David for his worship unto the Lord. Michal became barren and a life of bareness (I don’t just mean without child but an entire life) comes upon those who refuse the Lord. God expects Believers to do things His way and not ours. He is HOLY and must not be treated any other way!
I choose blessing or cursing. Everyone no matter the circumstance gets to choose blessing or cursing. In a bad circumstance? Choose blessing and God will work on your behalf!
Deuteronomy 30: 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, 20 love the Lord your God, obey him, and remain faithful to him. For he is your life, and he will prolong your days as you live in the land the Lord swore to give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
This chapter reminds me of a song Bob Dylan wrote:
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Rising up against the people of God is beyond foolishness from those who serve the devil. God’s people will always end up the victors whether here or in heaven for those who are martyred.
