David again brought together all the able young men of Israel—thirty thousand. He and all his men went to Baalah in Judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the Name, the name of the Lord Almighty, who is enthroned between the cherubim on the ark. They set the ark of God on a new cart and brought it from the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab, were guiding the new cart with the ark of God on it, and Ahio was walking in front of it. David and all Israel were celebrating with all their might before the Lord, with castanets, harps, lyres, timbrels, sistrums and cymbals. When they came to the threshing floor of Nakon, Uzzah reached out and took hold of the ark of God, because the oxen stumbled. The Lord’s anger burned against Uzzah because of his irreverent act; therefore God struck him down, and he died there beside the ark of God. Then David was angry because the Lord’s wrath had broken out against Uzzah, and to this day that place is called Perez Uzzah. David was afraid of the Lord that day and said, “How can the ark of the Lord ever come to me?” He was not willing to take the ark of the Lord to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. The ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months, and the Lord blessed him and his entire household.

II Samuel 6:1-11 (NIV)

Your holy grounds are the spaces in which you are empowered to overcome life’s challenges and inherit your new life, to Reconnect to God’s purpose and plan for your life and the space in which He has caused you to exist. Your holy grounds serve as your fueling station, which gives you the ability to engage the hard, the impossible, the very obstacles to your experiences yielding the life and life more abundantly as promised, the ability to Breathe: New Life. Although life will take on you and your holy spaces, remember their reverence and guard it, your holy grounds are too important to be treated likely. The irreverence of your holy space from you or others can cause death to the necessary motivation and compulsion toward the fulfillment of God's promises in your life. Guard your anointing, your holy grounds as if your life depends upon it; being sure of what you let in for it is in this space that you get the stuff you need to take on and overcome and inherit your life and life more abundantly.
