Over in Isaiah 55, the LORD says, “My ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” In today’s text in 2 Samuel we are going to get a peek into the supernatural ways of God, and we are going to see Him working in ways we would never expect. He will punish Israel for David taking a census that He moved David to take. We will see His death angel hovering over Jerusalem ready to destroy everyone until He tells him to relent. Go figure!
God does work in strange ways, sometimes even using evil for His purposes. But as we will be reminded of today, He is always working for the good of those who love him!
