2 Samuel 24:1 (KJV) And again the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.
Why does God allow some things to happen? These things are far beyond our human ability to comprehend. We may question them, but we have no power to fight against them. Who has any power that can stand against the Almighty Power and Sovereign Purposes of God? In these moments, we must understand that there is something taking place that is much larger than we are and find our place within the narrative and trust that God knows what He is doing.
