Thinking About NVCC 3/2/2014

When King David was bringing the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, “Uzzah reached out and took hold of the ark of God, because the oxen stumbled” (2 Sam. 6:6). Uzzah thought God needed a little help with the covenant, so he reached out to help God. In the next verse we read the act was irreverent, and Uzzah died next to the ark.

This week a friend sent me a text which said, “I’ve read the story and God wins in the end.” He was not the author of the saying, but it is a good reminder; our God is large and in charge.

We have this underlying fear that God will be bested in the end; he will not be able to fulfill his promises. When that little shoulder sitting demon whispers such doubts in our ear, we, like Uzzah, reach out to steady God’s ark by thinking, “God needs our help, God needs our wisdom, or God needs out input.” The resurrection of Jesus teaches us God does not need our help.

Trust Him,
