In the Book of I Chronicles David is returning the Ark of God back to the city of David. There was rejoicing, laughter, dancing and music as the Ark of the Covenant was returned. Part of that celebration is as follows and is my prayer for today.
Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness
Let the whole world know what he has done.
Sing to him, yes, sing his praises.
Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds.
Exult in his holy name.
Rejoice, you who worship the Lord.
Search for the Lord and his strength;
Continually seek him.
Remember the wonders he has performed,
His miracles, and the rulings
he has given.
Would you join me in the freedom we have in Christ to rejoice, to laugh, to dance and to sing of his great goodness. At this joyous celebration there was also gifts from King David. Each person was given a loaf of bread, a cake of dates, and a cake of raisins.
Lord, let our rejoicing be in the singing, dancing, laughing, loving and giving gifts in Your Holy Name for what you have done for us. I love You. Amen.
