Three Months Of Blessings

‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬ [12] And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the city of David with gladness.

Obededom was blessed by God in three months and it changed his history forever. It changed his nativity and included him among the Levites that the writer of Chronicles called him a Levite. Some biblical critics posit the idea that the Levites were not only lineal descendants of Levi but that some were ” non-Israelite priests adopted into service after the emergence of the Israelite confederacy..” We have an African proverb that says, ” If a child washes his hands, the child will eat with the elders”. Barnes, Geneva and Gill may not fully agree with that. Obededom might have been a foreigner, but he appears to have washed his hands, so was qualified to share in covenant blessings. It doesn’t matter where you come from, or what the colour of your skin may be. If you take care of God’s things, He will take care of you. In three months, David had to go back to the ark. May the God you serve bless you that your story will become a testimony. May it happen so deep that people will forget where you come from. I see a greater future for you.
