Daily D – 2 Samuel 3:36
2 Samuel 3:36 “This pleased the people very much. In fact, everything the king did pleased them!” (NLT)
Occasionally, a pitcher will throw a no-hitter, a batter will hit for the cycle, and a leader will please everyone. But only occasionally. Celebrate these moments. Consider what led to them. Give attention to what is repeatable.
It is impossible to completely duplicate an opportune moment in time. What makes a moment special is the confluence of streams of readiness and timing only God could orchestrate. Some events cannot and will not repeat.
Holy Week is like that, isn’t it? It began with a celebration fit for a king. It ended with the celebration of the King of Kings. Every moment along the way was evidence of God’s perfect timing. Each second ticked in sync with the heart of God.
The new day dawning on Sunday headed a new week and a new way of thinking about days and weeks and seasons, about beginnings and endings, as the endless and limitless overflowing joy of that perfect moment crests again and again as life after life comes to a proper understanding of Jesus’ perfect solution to our every sin, failure, and loss.
One brilliant moment unlocked a trillion more.
I will celebrate the King of Kings who does all things well.
Our Father, your timing and execution are perfect. Now and again, we get things right. Now and always, you do all things well. Thank you for reorienting our world toward the endless perfection to come. Amen.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
