The Joy of the Lord is our strength! ( Nehemiah 8:10) When David brought back the Ark of God. He had to do it with respect because the Ark carried God’s presence and when the Ark was in a place His presence was there and when the Ark was not there His presence and Glory were not there. David was bringing the Ark of God back to the city of David but he sacrificed animals every few steps and danced and played the tambourine and showed honor and respect for God’s Presence. (2 Samuel 6: 1-15) He worshiped God what God wants us to do! What he created us for! We are to get in His presence and worship Him. When Davids wife saw him coming she thought he looked like a fool because of the way he danced before everyone. She didn’t understand the Joy of God’s Presence. She didn’t want people to look at her and her husband crazy or less than. When we worship God We raise our hands and humble ourselves and not care what those Michals ( David’s wife) say. By the way Michal was rebuked for the way she acted. David had the Ark of the Lord (God’s glory)! The Joy of the Lord! You know I would have been dancing also because back then You could not live and see God. You would not survive if you touched the Ark only Priest were allowed to handle it. To be in His Presence WOW how could you not be joyful? How much more Joy should we have in us now that Jesus (Joy) (The Ark) God’s Presence) Holy Spirit resides in US! What He did for Us on the Cross! We don’t need a priest to go through anymore or an Ark to be near Gods Presence. Ask God…Fill me with You overflow me with Your Joy, Your presence remove from me sadness it’s not of You and Your in me. Let me feel you! Get your worship music on and dance like David. How much do you want to be in His Presence? How much do you want Joy (Holy Spirit) to overcome you? Holy Spirit Baptise us with your Joy! Will you look like a fool for the ones who don’t understand? Are you worried about what they think? THEY cannot fill you with Gods Presence THEY cannot release your sadness and critical heart. Only GOD can and He knows your heart. God said David is a man after my own heart. That’s how I want God to see me. After His heart! Not caring what others think. So I ask you…Where does your heart lie today? How bad do you want Joy (Holy Spirit) to overcome you?
