King David angered God when he called for a census. The foolish idea to seek proof of his military might hindered a walk of faith. Judgment would come. A price must be paid. ďTell David that I will punish him in one of three ways. But he will have to choose which one it will be (1 Chronicles 21:10 CEV).Ē Gad shared the rest of the story.

David did not want to receive his punishment from a heartless enemy. He threw himself upon the altar of Godís mercy. He knew a loving father disciplines a wayward son and he would willingly submit to his heavenly Father. Three days of disease took the lives of many and softened the heart of a King. David knew he alone should be held accountable. Mercy prevailed and sacrifices and offerings were given from a sorrowful heart.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
