Worship Away The Pain

19 David noticed that his attendants were whispering among themselves, and he realized the child was dead. “Is the child dead?” he asked. “Yes,” they replied, “he is dead.” 20 Then David got up from the ground. After he had washed, put on lotions, and changed his clothes, he went into the house of the Lord and worshiped. Then he went to his own house, and at his request, they served him food, and he ate. ~ 2 Samuel 12:19-20

Because of David’s sin, his son died as a baby. David could have closed up and drawn into himself, but instead, when the news was told to him, he went and prepared himself that he would be accepted before the LORD and he worshiped. He went to God even when it was God who took his child, He still went back to God. He didn’t get angry at God. He didn’t rebel against God. He humbled Himself before God and worshiped. When we worship, we release pain. Regret. Sorrow. Anger. We release emotions that hold us back, and we give them to God.

How often can we say we bring our pain, sorrows, and hurt to God? More times than not, we go to friends. Family. Alcohol. Drugs. Facebook. Instagram. Snapchat. We go to social media more than we go to God. Why is that? The majority of the time, we don’t want to let go of our pain. We want to hold on to the pain, post on social media unnecessary TMI posts all to get sympathy and pity. We don’t want to release the pain, we want to gain recognition that we have it hard, that it’s such a difficult thing to overcome. Now I’m not saying, never talk to another person about your problems, or never share on social media your trials. I’m saying go to God first, worship, release that hurt and pain, then go to trusted friends and family. Go to them not seeking pity, but seeking to build each other up. Use social media to tell the world it’s possible to overcome, not woe is me. Worship changes things, don’t neglect a time of worship!

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Worship Away The Pain!
