What happens when our preference doesn't line up with God's preference? How can we even know God's desires? I've asked these questions since I was introduced to Rachel Morley's song "Preference."

Join me as we explore a time when God's servants did something they 100% thought was right but did not line up with God's preference.

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week's Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Read in context
    • Read and keep on reading
    • Ask questions
    • Follow the cross-references
    • Meditate on God's Word
    • Read in different translations
    • Refer to an overview of the book you're studying
    • Remember the people were REAL
    • Repetition
    • Consult an outside resource
  • Episode Guide Download
  • How God challenged me with my own thoughts
  • An overview of Chronicles - The Bible Project on YouTube
  • Reading the genealogies and making notes along the way
  • Meditating on the details of 1 Chronicles 13
  • Learning more about the Ark of God
    • Exodus 25
    • Numbers 4
    • Leviticus 16
  • Pondering the unique details of the narrative
  • Discovering the previously abandoned plan to move the ark fulfilled in 1 Chronicles 15
  • Considering how David and the people should have known how to fulfill God's preference
  • Finding time to build a life of knowing God and His ways

 

We won’t get a pass, because we SHOULD have known His preferences — God provided a way for us to know and we leave it sitting on our shelves or unopened on our phones.
