Let’s Dance Like David Danced!

Good morning my Blissful People!

In this season of dancing, let’s learn from one that excelled in dancing before the Lord. One whose dancing has become legendary, and a model for all.


2 Samuel 6:14 NIV
[14] Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might,

2 Samuel 6:16,20 NIV
[16] As the ark of the Lord was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord, she despised him in her heart.
[20] When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, “How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, going around half-naked in full view of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!”

2 Samuel 6:21-22 NIV
[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. [22] I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor.”

There are a few things I’ll like to point out from his dancing.

#1. He danced before the Lord

It was not a performance on a stage for the entertainment of men. It was not about skill, shape or form. It was before the Lord and for the Lord. Take note of that.

#2. He danced with all his might

He was uninhibited. He had no reservations. He took his dancing to higher and higher levels, and danced with reckless abandon. With all his might. Take note of that.

#3. He was despised for His dancing

He danced until even his own wife despised him for it! In other words, he threw his dignity and royal status into the thrash can!

Let me tell you something: If the mockers haven’t yet despised you for dancing, you’ve not yet started. Take note of that.

#4. He didn’t care about his dignity and what the mockers thought of him

The man didn’t care about the opinion of his wife regarding his dancing. In fact, he told her, “You haven’t seen anything yet! These are just my opening moves! Wait till you see the real dance!”

The ball is now in your court. What are you waiting for?

Let’s dance!!!
