Scripture: 2 Samuel 6

There have always been people who get offended.

Here, we have David’s wife Michal who “despised him in her heart” when she saw David dancing before the ark of the Lord.

The thing is, he wasn’t just dancing before the ark of the Lord, he was dancing before the Lord. It was an act of worship, and he was not ashamed.

He didn’t apologize. He knew his motives were pure and he stood by his actions. It was this honest heart that made David the man he was: a man after God’s own heart.

And David said to Michal, “It was before the Lord, who chose me above your father and above all his house, to appoint me as prince over Israel, the people of the Lord —and I will celebrate before the Lord.

2 Samuel 6:21

Know the why behind your actions. Align your motives with the ways of the Lord. Stand firm. And celebrate before the Lord.

Journal: Write a prayer and ask the Lord to show you any wrong motives behind your actions.

Scripture: Psalm 22

Truth over feelings.

If you ever feel forsaken remember the truth.

For he has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, and he has not hidden his face from him, but has heard, when he cried to him.

From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will perform before those who fear him. The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord ! May your hearts live forever!

All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord , and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. For kingship belongs to the Lord , and he rules over the nations.

All the prosperous of the earth eat and worship; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, even the one who could not keep himself alive. Posterity shall serve him; it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation; they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn, that he has done it.

Psalm 22:24‭-‬31

Scripture: 1 Chronicles 16

It’s easy to get beat down by the overwhelming amount of bad news. It’s easy to feel discouraged and hopeless and to forget all that the Lord has done. There’s never a time to not give thanks.

Give thanks to God today. Thank Him for who He is, for what He’s done, for what He’s doing, and for what He’s going to do.

11 Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually! 12 Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles and the judgments he uttered…

“He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.”

25 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and he is to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the LORD made the heavens. 27 Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place.

“Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”

32 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! 33 Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth.

Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!”

35 Say also: “Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather and deliver us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.

“Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting!
