1 Chronicles 16:8-11 NIVUK
8 Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.
9 Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.
10 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
11 Look to the Lord and his strength;
seek his face always.

After learning of the blessings the Ark brought to Obed-Edom, David brings the Ark back to Jerusalem, this time carrying it correctly. With it safely returned, the song these verses begin was sung. Today God dwells not in the Ark (the Ark of course never contained him, but was the symbol of his Presence). Instead he dwells in us by his Spirit – how much more should we praise him and let the nations know what he has done!

Spirit, I look to you for your guidance and strength today.
