Topic: PRAISER OR MOCKER? Part 2
Text: 2nd Samuel 6:14-22KJV
14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.
15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.
16 And as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.
In part one, we said a praiser is the one who praises, while a mocker is the one who despises.
Just as God loves to be praised, dwells in the praises of his praiser and bless his praiser, in like manner he dislikes the one who despises his praise or his praiser.
From our scriptural text above, Michal the wife of David (a queen of the land) despised David as he was dancing before the ark of God. At first she despised him in her heart, if she had stopped there, probably God would have shown her mercy for David’s sake, but she went further to confront David and expressed her hatred according to 2nd Samuel 6:20
“Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!”
The consequence of her action was grievous as the scripture says she had no child till her death, breaking a terrible record of being the only woman in the bible who became barren till death.
God dislikes mockers, no wonder he instantly answered the prayer of Elisha who cursed 42 children who mocked him (2nd Kings 2:23-24). So it is not far fetched, that God cursed Michal to remain a barren woman because she despised David while praising God, even without David making any pronouncement
Beloved, God dislikes the one who mocks his praise or mocks his praiser. So rather than been a mocker and be cursed by God, it is far better to be God’s praiser and be blessed. So register yourself today as a praiser of God and not a mocker. God bless you.
* Father, I register myself today as your praiser and not your mocker in Jesus Name.
