1 Chronicles 13:1-4
David consulted with the commanders of thousands and of hundreds—with every leader. Then David said to the entire assembly of Isra’el, “If it seems good to you, and if it is the will of ADONAI our God, let’s send messengers to the rest of our kinsmen in the land of Isra’el, and also to the cohanim and L’vi’im in their cities with surrounding open land, asking them to join us; and let’s bring back the ark of our God to ourselves, since we didn’t go after it when Sha’ul was king.” The whole assembly said they would do this, for in the view of all the people it seemed right.
David asked everyone but Adonai in bringing the ark into the city of Jerusalem. On the surface this doesn’t seem like a bad thing, but David tried to do it under his own will without consulting Torah to see how Adonai had already stated how the ark is supposed to be carried. Because David didn’t study God’s Word completely a man died due to his ignorance. Abba teach me always Your ways in Your Word. Do not let me tire of reading and applying it to my life so the rest of my days. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
