It had finally reached Jerusalem, The Ark of the Lord was resting again in the center of Israel. David was so excited to see the Ark back where it belonged that he was celebrating with all his might. The people responded with celebration as well. Everyone was pleased, except for Saul’s Daughter, Michal. Still bringing the Ark to Jerusalem was a sign that God was back in charge of His people. The great news was that the person that was most glad was David, the king. Since Samuel anointed Saul as king, God was clear–if your king will honor me, then I will lead Israel and he will be blessed. David actually understood and followed God’s lead. As a result–Israel would be blessed!
The same holds true today. If we will continue to honor God with our lives, and, if we will follow the Lord’s lead; then God will protect us, provide for us and prepare us for a glorious life here and for eternity. It will not always be easy; but, we will have peace and purpose whatever life throws at us. If there was ever anything worth celebrating, knowing that we will be loved and guided by our Father is clearly reason to do the happy dance! Thanks, Father for your love and grace!
God Bless You
Now King David was told, “The Lord has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God.” So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing. 13 When those who were carrying the ark of the Lord had taken six steps, he sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. 14 Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, 15 while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets.
16 As the ark of the Lord was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord, she despised him in her heart.
17 They brought the ark of the Lord and set it in its place inside the tent that David had pitched for it, and David sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before the Lord.18 After he had finished sacrificing the burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord Almighty. 19 Then he gave a loaf of bread, a cake of dates and a cake of raisins to each person in the whole crowd of Israelites, both men and women. And all the people went to their homes.
This is an amazing Journey. I hope you will hear from the Lord, as you seek Him with your heart. Matthew 6:33
