Verse of the Day - 2 Samuel 6:21

David said to Michal, "It was before the LORD, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the Lord’s people Israel — I will celebrate before the LORD."

2 Samuel 6:21

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

David's wife, Michal, ridiculed her husband, the King, for his "undignified" exuberance as he rejoiced and danced before the Ark of the Covenant as it returned. Apparently, David wasn't kingly enough for Michal. David refused, however, to be deterred by her criticism. The ark's return was a reason for celebration. His God was the only true and living God. His God had given him victory after victory over dangerous foes. His God had preserved his people through hardships and difficulties over a long history of challenges, oppression, wandering, and battling. In his joyous delight, David was determined to celebrate before the LORD with a full heart, a dancing body, and without concern for his position in Israel. God had brought this day of deliverance, so David declared, "I will celebrate before the LORD." Shouldn't we?
