Transition

Random thoughts, thinking about the season of transition in the book of 1st Samuel…

I believe the events that happened around the Ark of the Covenant in the philistine temples were prophetic.   What happened in the natural was also happening in the spiritual.  The ark of God’s presence was toppling the other powers that seemed so strong at the time.

God could have introduced David as king at any time, but for the season of transition there were other things that had to happen.  A small group of ‘heroes’ was raised up around David.  the judgement of God came upon the people of Beth-Shemesh & Kiriath-Jearim.  But the ark of God finally found a place of rest with Obed-Edom’s household.

We like the idea of transition, because it means something new is happening.  But transition can also be a very uncomfortable time.

God is faithful… in this season of transition, he will find his ‘heroes’.  Often they are not the ones we would guess.  He will find the household of honour for his peace to rest… in this case it was Obed-Edom.
