I Chronicles 15:29 ” As the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord was entering the City of David, Michal, daughter of Saul, watched from a window. And when she saw King David dancing and celebrating, she despised him in her heart.”

She could have been down in the street with the rest of the people singing and praising God…for the Ark of the Covenant was finally coming back to Jerusalem.  But instead, the bitter Michal watched from afar.  And when she saw her husband, King David, acting quite unbecoming for royalty , she publicly mocked him.  Her contempt continued to fester, blinding her from the true jubilation of the people and their sincere thankfulness to God.  King David attempted to explain this gratitude and joy to her in II Samuel 6: 16-23, when he told her, “I will celebrate before the Lord.  I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes.”  When the masks come off…when the pretentiousness is dropped…when we get real before the Lord and worship with all our might… Heaven moves – hearts are changed- the Lord is pleased.
