King David sinned by numbering the fighting men in Israel. His sin was that he put his faith in the size of his army rather than in the size of his God.
The Lord eventually sent the prophet Gad to confront David and offer the king three options:
So Gad came to David and told him, and said to him, “Shall three years of famine come to you in your land? Or will you flee three months before your foes while they pursue you? Or shall there be three days’ pestilence in your land? Now consider, and decide what answer I shall return to him who sent me.” (2 Samuel 24:13)
King David’s answer is my prayer for America today:
Lord, we cry out to You that our nation would fall into Your hands because Your mercy is great, but let us not fall into the hands of man. (Based on 2 Samuel 24:14)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
