Its time to praise him!

Psalm 150
Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
Praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
Praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
Praise him with the harp and lyre,
Praise him with tambourine and dancing;
Praise him with the strings and flute,
Praise him with the clash of cymbals,
Praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.

What is it that we have to be contained in our faith?  When King David danced in the street with everything he had in public, his wife watched and she despised him in her heart and she was barren from that time forth. With everything that has breath praise the Lord!  Oh imagine what that would look like if we with everything we had within us, praised the Lord like David, not caring what other people thought because of his passionate thanksgiving for all that the Lord had done.

One despised David but before the slave girls David was held in high honour.  We have a choice when we watch people passionately outpouring their love toward God, we can despise them and mock them for their outpouring of love or we can hold them in high honour and desire to be like them, free to worship God with everything within us.

I have never seen anything so beautiful before the Lord as people intimately dancing before their Lord and for their Lord, abandoned, set apart for their lover.
