Doing The Right Thing The Wrong Way, part 4
How can we be zealous with knowledge? How can a person KNOW what God wants him or her to do in a particular situation? God has given us His Word and He has freely poured out His Holy Spirit to anyone who wants to know. All we have to do is open our hearts and listen. Remember last week, James told us that we could pray for wisdom?
David’s desire to move the Ark of God was a good thing. He just did it the wrong way. God expects us to obey Him, EVEN if we think we have a better idea.
God’s Word never changes, it’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. It is always good, current and relevant. New ideas are good, being creative is good, but it always needs to be in agreement with God’s Word. God may not always explain Himself. We may not always understand His reasons, but remember this... Sincerity is good, but obedience is better.
