Dancing With God

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Have you ever watched a married couple who’ve been dancing for years out on a dance floor? Every move they make is perfectly synchronized. The man leads, the woman follows, and you can hardly distinguish between the leading of the dance and the following. The man makes the slightest movement in one direction, the slightest look, the slightest touch, and the woman flows with it and it becomes a beautiful dance, like second nature.

So it is with you and God. Your relationship with God is supposed to be a dance of love, as a dance between a bridegroom and his bride. Is your walk a beautiful, flowing dance of love? If not, you can be sure that He’s leading, but are you following? If not, there’s no dance. Learn to respond to God’s slightest touch, His littlest tug on your heart, the gentlest leading of His Spirit. Learn to dance with God, to surrender to His slightest will. Be so sensitive to His moving that He and you seem to move as one. Open your life to move with the Spirit and your life will become a dance of love.

Today’s Mission – Today, be sensitive to His moving and surrender to His slightest will. Go as His Spirit leads, and learn to dance with God!

Will You Go Out Without Knowing?

Oswald Chambersby Oswald Chambers

He went out, not knowing where he was going. —Hebrews 11:8

Have you ever “gone out” in this way? If so, there is no logical answer possible when anyone asks you what you are doing. One of the most difficult questions to answer in Christian work is, “What do you expect to do?” You don’t know what you are going to do. The only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing. Continually examine your attitude toward God to see if you are willing to “go out” in every area of your life, trusting in God entirely. It is this attitude that keeps you in constant wonder, because you don’t know what God is going to do next. Each morning as you wake, there is a new opportunity to “go out,” building your confidence in God. “…do not worry about your life…nor about the body…” (Luke 12:22). In other words, don’t worry about the things that concerned you before you did “go out.”

Have you been asking God what He is going to do? He will never tell you. God does not tell you what He is going to do— He reveals to you who He is. Do you believe in a miracle-working God, and will you “go out” in complete surrender to Him until you are not surprised one iota by anything He does?

Believe God is always the God you know Him to be when you are nearest to Him. Then think how unnecessary and disrespectful worry is! Let the attitude of your life be a continual willingness to “go out” in dependence upon God, and your life will have a sacred and inexpressible charm about it that is very satisfying to Jesus. You must learn to “go out” through your convictions, creeds, or experiences until you come to the point in your faith where there is nothing between yourself and God.
