1 Chronicles 15 - Arrival of the Ark with JOY!

LINK: 1 Chronicles 15 (Parallel chapter: 2 Samuel 6)

BACKGROUND

David had the Ark transported in a proper way from Obed-Edom (see 13:14) to a tent in Jerusalem. This includes the musicians, one of whom you will hear quite a bit from as we read Psalms 73-83 in the next eight days. That chief musician is Asaph who sounds the bronze cymbals. David dances as the Ark is brought into Jerusalem!

REFLECTION

The key word I see in this chapter is JOY! The musicians raised sounds of JOY, and they brought the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD from the house of Obed-edom with JOY!

APPLICATION

Do everything with JOY today! (Maybe even do a little dance before the Lord?)

PRAYER

Lord, thank You that everyday can be a day of JOY when we focus on You. I love how I am seeing the worship throughout Chronicles this time and not the drudgery of chronologies! Thank You for opening my eyes. I pray this in Jesus' name. Amen.
