A Desperate Situation

May 19, 2019


1 Chronicles 21:11-14 (NLT2)
11 So Gad came to David and said, “These are the choices the LORD has given you.
12 You may choose three years of famine, three months of destruction by the sword of your enemies, or three days of severe plague as the angel of the LORD brings devastation throughout the land of Israel. Decide what answer I should give the LORD who sent me.”
13 “I’m in a desperate situation!” David replied to Gad. “But let me fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is very great. Do not let me fall into human hands.”
So the LORD sent a plague upon Israel, and 70,000 people died as a result.
