Don't touch the ark#
We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. (2 Chronicles 20:12)
An Israelite named Uzzah lost his life because he reached out and took hold of the ark of God. (2 Samuel 6:6) He placed his hands on it with the best intentions - just to steady it, because the oxen stumbled (2 Samuel 6:6) But, nevertheless, he had overstepped his bounds by touching the Lord's work, and therefore God struck him down. (2 Samuel 6:7)
Living a life of faith often requires us to leave things alone.
If we have completely entrusted something to God, we must keep our hands off it. Often there is nothing as godly as inactivity on our part, or nothing as harmful as restless working.#
The Last Word:
It is such a comfort to drop entanglements and perplexities of life into God's hands and choose to leave them there. (anon)
