Master Of The Dance

Word of the Day

Beloved, as you learn to dance and you feel butterflies flutter, you know you must at some time arise from your observant position at the instructor’s invitation and you have chosen to do so.

Continue to imagine the dance and see yourself as you arise and move into the instructors embrace and unintentionally step on his feet. Your embarrassment is met with an undisturbed composure as he continues to count steps, all the while guiding you with patience. He remembers what it is like to learn obedience…what is to listen and hear his own Master’s voice when he was learning to dance.

Like Me, the instructor sees your effort and rewards you with words of praise and gentle instruction. His confidence in you allows you to give way to the beauty of the music and move your whole being in sync with the ‚ÄėMaster of the Dance.‚Äô

Perfect splendor and grace transform your butterflies into an elated dance of grace and peace. You have overcome…no longer counting steps. Instead, you are moving in harmony to melodious music as you are stirred to the very depths of your soul with all encompassing delight. This is the epitome of hearing My voice…the voice of your Good Shepherd (John:10:27)

What a beautiful picture‚Ķwhat an extraordinary love‚Ķwhat an exceptional grace‚Ķthat only I can give. It is waiting for you as you place your hand in the palm of My hand to arise and dance with Me. O‚Äô to dance on the circumstances of life all the while finding incredible joy. This is how it is meant to be. Won‚Äôt you join Me and be amazed? Come and hear My voice full of joy unspeakable (Jude 1:24)…

But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out] (Hebrews 11:6 Amplified)

Prayer

Lord, I can imagine the scene. I know how fearful I would be‚ĶI have been fearful over much less in my life than dancing an actual dance with someone. I know the inner insecurities of my own heart all too well. However, I take comfort in the fact that You know them to and do not condemn me in any way. You never berate me or say, ‚ÄúWhy don‚Äôt you change or just get over it!‚ÄĚ Sure, you correct me but it is always with mercy and kindness.

Therefore, I need not fear. In fact, I release all fear of what You might think…all fear of what others might think. After all, You already know everything I have done or will do and still love me…still want to dance with me. How amazing You are.

May the butterflies in my stomach become wings with which to fly…wings to fly to heights I have never known before…wings with which to move with such graceful motion in my dance with You. May I become so accustomed to moving in sync with You that my steps become well timed like the notes of a great opus. I dare to put my hand in the palm of Your hand where my name is carved…where the steps to my dance with You reside. Amen

Reflect and Journal

 

  1. What does being hidden in His heart mean to you and how does it bring freedom in all areas of life, especially when it comes to the words and actions of others.
  2. Reflect on comparing the natural aspect of dancing with an instructor and dancing with the Lord through the trials and joys of life. What personal applications can you draw from this analogy?
  3. Envision the Lord’s extraordinary love…His exceptional grace and see your hand resting in the palm of His hand. Ask Him what is written there that He wants to share with you today. What butterflies of hope does He wish to release to enable you to dance His dance of grace?
