Blessings folk!

David and the people brought the Ark into the tent David had prepared for it.
They offered sacrifices.
David gave the people a gift of a meal.


1Ch 16:4-6
He appointed some of the Levites as ministers before the ark of the LORD, even to celebrate and to thank and praise the LORD God of Israel:
Asaph the chief, and second to him Zechariah, then Jeiel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed-edom and Jeiel, with musical instruments, harps, lyres; also Asaph played loud-sounding cymbals,
and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests blew trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

David appointed some of the Levites.
To do what?
Minister before the Ark of the Lord
Celebrate the Lord
Thank the Lord
Praise the Lord God of Israel

Note that they were before the Ark of the Lord.
Apparently in view of it?
There was no veil shrouding the Ark.

The Lord gives us their names…a special honor.

The Lord then tells us some of how they ministered…with…
musical instruments
loud-sounding cymbals

Two of them blew trumpets continually before the Ark of the Covenant of God.
Note the detailed name.
The Ark of the Covenant of God.

This was not a quiet event.
This was loud.
This was joyous.
This was celebration.
This was continual.
This was constant celebration and proclamation of the Covenant God who we worship.

So should we worship.
Not just corporately.
But individually.

Before the very Presence of the Most High God Who dwells within us.
Without ceasing.

…to the praise of the glory of His honor and power and grace…
