I have had a “shift to the right” over the past few days. My move… presume “Christian”, until proven otherwise?! I found myself steppin’ out, even further than usual [from my box], at the Joyce Meyer Conference I attended in Albany this weekend. Everywhere I went, I couldn’t help myself from praying for people, seeking fellowship, and speaking Jesus. I did not question who was of what faith, or even, if they believed at all… I felt ‘FREEDOM TO SPEAK’ for Jesus.
In believing that all people are in a place of need, how can one not need… Jesus?! All people are seeking something. Let’s show them the One who holds the answers, to everything?! Throughout the JMM Conference, I met and heard numerous people, having received death sentences. Only half had their eyes and heart open for Jesus. I believe in miracles… that the blind will see and the heart will attack toward Jesus. And on that day… there will be great rejoicing and dancing in Heaven.
AND THEN, as if all the above was not enough, the Lord put a skip in my step and removed the box from my eyes… with the “Seed of Abraham”, Messianic Jew Congregation, who promotes “One New Man”. Yes, I made a prayerful choice to attend this church over the last session of Joyce Meyer’s conference, but I believe she would have supported “my move”, within the kingdom.
NEW SONG & DANCE…
Now let me tell you of my New Song and New Dance. I will never be the same again. I cannot worship HIM again, with the same lukewarm melody and flavor as I once did. Having been blessed by an expanded perspective, an enlarged territory, spirit-lifting worship with Matt Redmond, Joyce Meyer’s “gifted” teaching, and the ‘open-heart’ dance with my Jesus… I have been MOVED! My God ordered my steps… for such a time as this.
Oh how we danced…
From the moment the service began… there was dance. And oh how we danced for the Lord. Many times, my feet, found no floor. I danced with Jesus!
Let Freedom ring…
The freedom to praise and worship Jesus, as the children of His Seed, rings big in the Kingdom of God… and is found in this small church. Even though my place [circumstances] remains the same… How can I now, having been freed to dance like David danced, possibly stay imprisoned in the place I was?! Let’s dance… I am FREE, INDEED!
There are no bars on the windows.
No jailor allowed.
Only JESUS… standing at the door with the KEY.
PRAISE THE LIVING GOD!
“Behold! I [Jesus] stand at the door and knock; if anyone
hears My voice and opens the door, I [Jesus] will come in to him and will dine
with him, and he with Me.” Rev. 3:20
Of much that I was given in Word, this Scripture stands out for me…
“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
To give unto them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they might be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified.”
… The prophet Isaiah describes a God who will replace His people’s suffering with joy, and remove the ashes and grime that cover them to reveal the beauty beneath. [Gospel.com]
And as I walk away from this divine intervention… I take ‘One New me’, a New Song, a New Dance, and the least of these… a new tee-shirt. Praise Yeshua [Jesus]!
THANK YOU LORD… May I have this dance?!
