Notes from the Journey with David – 93

93. If I find favor in the Lord’s eyes, he will bring me back (2 Samuel 15:25).
David assigns Zadok the task of moving the ark. He has lost confidence that God is with him, likely mired in depression over recent events. Every leader faces times of uncertainty. And part of that uncertainty involves the blessing of God. We simply aren’t sure that He is with us because we’ve made decisions that seem to show we aren’t truly with him. David has known failure and subsequent punishment (Bathsheba and the child’s death). But here, he feels loss and may be uncertain as to why. That uncertainty drives him to a place where he is reluctant to encounter the ark, hoping someone else can help him discern where he truly stands with God.
