It Is Written, Proverbs 5:21, for the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders all his paths.
Have you read in the Bible how David lept and danced before the Lord? What he did may seem strange to a lot of people, but the fact is that David realized more than most of us about praising God. He was overjoyed you might say.
The title of this message means to worship, and is a sign of rejoicing. David took the Lord at His word, and believed to the point that he could not restrain himself. Was David more blessed than we are? No!!
Let's take a look at a few things. How would you feel about winning a couple of hundred million. You could really enjoy yourself for the rest of your life. How many years? We won't get into anything negative right now. Anyway you would probably throw a big party and celebrate for weeks. I'm not saying that would be wrong.
Out of the billions of people on earth, we were chosen by God himself to spend eternity with Him. That is the greatest prize of all. A life of celebration that will never end. In the meantime however, we have the Holy Spirit to help us in all things, all the time. Countless blessings, are normal in our life. Do you think we should be dancing and singing before God? I think we should.
When we get to know Jesus and start to have a relationship with Him, we should all be dancing like David. We need to meditate on the grace we have been given, and at least allow our spirits to dance and sing.
Look at a couple of facts. A lottery winner finally realizes at the age of 80 are so, that time is short. Who will get his money? Will people be happy to see him go, so they can get his money? We all know that this type of thing is common, regardless of how much is involved.
Now let's look at a believer. He hits 80, then looks back at a life of blessings. His God has taken care of him. When the believer looks at time left, he sees a glorious new life with the Lord forever. When he goes, most of those he leaves behind will miss his presence in their lives. Other believers will be happy for him.
Well there it is. A little comparison of joyful times for a while and joyful times forever. When I think about this message, I realize what it says, but I wonder why so many of us aren't celebrating all the time. Well there is a way for all of us to worship God, even if we can't show it like David.
We can all reflect Jesus light to everyone we meet. If we are truly Christians, we can ask the Holy Spirit to do that. If you do the Lord's will as you are led by the Holy Spirit, as far as the Lord is concerned, you and I are just as good as David. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You

Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
