With All Our Might

Updated: Jun 20, 2019

2 Samuel 6:12-19 (NRSV)-


12 It was told King David, “The Lord has blessed the household of Obed-edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God.” So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom to the city of David with rejoicing; 13 and when those who bore the ark of the Lord had gone six paces, he sacrificed an ox and a fatling. 14 David danced before the Lord with all his might; David was girded with a linen ephod. 15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.

16 As the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal daughter of Saul looked out of the window, and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.


17 They brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in its place, inside the tent that David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt offerings and offerings of well-being before the Lord. 18 When David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the offerings of well-being, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts, 19 and distributed food among all the people, the whole multitude of Israel, both men and women, to each a cake of bread, a portion of meat, and a cake of raisins. Then all the people went back to their homes.



Thought-

On Father’s Day, I had the opportunity to continue my participation in a Sermon Series at First Methodist Houston (www.fmhouston.com) entitled, “David”. A recording of the sermon is below:


Today, are our hearts focused on God, are we fully experiencing the depths of a relationship with him, and are we celebrating the magnitude of his holiness by dancing with all our might?


Prayer-

Heavenly Father God, the magnitude of your presence and holiness is amazing and awe-inspiring. We come to you asking that you teach us to focus our hearts upon you. As we do so, please guide us to dance, rejoice, shout, and sing before you with all of our might. In doing so, like King David, we ask that you help us to fully experience your presence by laying aside our concerns over what other people may hear or think about us. And, please help us to place you, our families, and our friends before ourselves. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen!
