Read: 2 Samuel 6:12 & 2 Samuel 6:14-15 & Psalm 33:1-3 & Psalm 100

Singing, dancing, raising hands and crying are all part of worshipping God. The Old Testament is filled with stories of God’s children singing and dancing before Him, especially kings. King David rejoiced while bringing the Arc of the Covenant from the house of Obed-Edom to Jerusalem. The Bible says, “Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets.” The book of Psalms is filled with examples of how to praise the Lord. Psalm 33:1-3 says, “[S]ing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.” We don’t have to sound like the next American Idol or winner of “The Voice” to sing praises to God. He only cares about our hearts. When we sing, we’re giving praise and honor to Him, so don’t worry about how you sound or who might hear you. Sing your pants off and worship the God from whom all blessings flow.]]>
