When You Are Stuck With No Instinct To Increase
We have old truth and present truth; the difference is based on where you are spiritually (1 Corinthians 13:11). David in 2 Samuel 6 was following urges instead of his instincts. An urge is a strong desire or impulse to act and in this narrative, David had just won some battles with his enemies and wanted to celebrate his victories by bringing the Ark of the Covenant into his city. Note that this narrative stimulates us to consider that God has a "Way", Timothy Wright wrote into a song… He's so high, you can't go over Him, He's so wide that you can go around Him, He's so low that can't go under Him, you must come in at the door.
The door of opportunity is to give God the Glory for all that He does is something that we must do based on instinct. Like King David we too are consumed by leaning into our desire(s) for personal things and that clouds our spiritual judgment (Proverbs 3:5). Look at the urges of the men in Sodom in Genesis 19:6-7, they wanted to do wickedness.
The correct way to move the Ark is mentioned in Deuteronomy 10:8 and, 1 Chronicles 15:2, 26-27 the entire 16th chapter of 1 Chronicles covers the celebration of bringing the Ark in the right way. There is a way that seems right to us but the ways thereof are of death, a separation from God (Proverbs 14:12, 16:25). Our instinct has to be a reflection of what God has shown us in His Word and not what we desire for ourselves.
1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
The God of the House of God, El Bethel, (Genesis 35:7) we thank You for the understanding of childhood and the increase of understanding. We praise You for the instinct of Your Love and Your Wisdom. We decree and declare blessings upon those who become adults and put away childish things, so that; we may grow into maturity and become grounded in Truth. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
