Dancing with God

Tuesdays: The Hebrew “Writings”

2 Samuel 5—6

To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.

The dance of David before the Ark expresses the energy released in spontaneous worship. There is joy, for the Ark finally arrives at a fixed place for worship. As the hands of a clock move freely about the center point, so does David find extravagant expression as he reels about while grounded in the joy of the presence of God centered in his life.

Michal criticizes David. She wastes her time judging him, instead of entering into the source of his joy. The same will happen to you, if you criticize and judge others. As a downward spiral, energies will go inward and bind, instead of spiraling outward in joyous expression.

Find a place in your house where you especially find the presence of God—a prayer closet, a special chair—some place where you find yourself drawn to be in God’s presence, where your spirit can dance.
