My eyes bucked a few times as I replied, “What do you mean you don’t see a deposit for $3,000?”

 

“No, I don’t see your deposit for $3,000,” the banker responded.

 

My eyes bucked again.

I had made a deposit at the bank for a relative. They instructed me that once the check posted to their account, get a cashier’s check to pay their auto mechanic for work done on their car.

 

She asked me questions like what day I made the deposit, the exact amount, etc.

 

“Let me go see what happened,” she insisted as she hurried to the back of the building.

 

I started praying. I mean hard. I was responsible for making sure the deposit was made and the mechanic was paid.

 

It took about 20 minutes for her to return. Finally, when she returned, she said that when the deposit was made, the teller had deposited the money in the wrong account!

 

As she handed me a new deposit receipt, she said that she had corrected the mistake.

 

In 2 Samuel 6:1-22: It was no mistake that King David decided to deposit the Ark of God at the house of Obed-edom. He nor any of the priests could figure out how to get the Ark of God to the City of David.

 

So, for three months, while the Ark remained at Obed-edom house, the Lord blessed him and his household so much that King David was told about it. The priests studied the Word of God to find out exactly how to carry the Ark, upon their shoulders of the priest and not in a cart.

After they discovered what to do, King David and his men went to Obed-edom house to withdraw the Ark of God and finally carry it to the City of David.

 

I was just thinking, if had not gone back to the bank, someone might have an extra $3,000 to pay for stuff in their cart – “shopping cart.”
