It’s not the way of the world
2 Chronicles 13:11 we meet an angry King David blaming God that he was trying to bring glory to God by bringing the ark back into Jerusalem something that King Saul did not do.

We must follow Him to see that dream become a reality. No, I'm not necessarily talking…Continue
