A few days ago, I had a vision of people standing on their tiptoes trying to see over a wall and I immediately remembered this picture I had in my memories.
During this time of the unknown, so many are trying to see in the natural which can only be discerned in the spirit. We all have had times of growth when we wanted to go higher but were experiencing painful times that seemed like would never end.
The romance with the King is a dance into the unknown and the beauty of the dance is it is his means to your advance.
I believe many in this hour are in just such a time in this very moment. I can relate to how that feels somewhat.
It is amazing to me how many times I felt as though I was standing on my “TIPTOES” trying to reach The LORD and go up higher but what a beautiful DANCE it has been.
Have you just like me felt sometimes that some people were spiritual giants and you were doing all you could to just stand on your tiptoes to get up to them?
Or to arrive at where you thought they were or better still trying to measure up to a certain standard.
We cannot measure where we are going or what we are reaching for by where others are standing,
Many times we are being led to be content in the place we are called to stand. Much can be attained when we just stand still and wait on The LORD.
Having dancing as my only profession in my early adult years and literally the one I was groomed for since I was 4 years old upward to my first career as a professional dancer, dance teacher and choreographer, so many memories flooded my heart with deep understanding as I saw this picture.
It spoke such volumes to me in the natural but now looking at where I am today, I realized what a parallel picture I was seeing.
It spoke so perfectly into places I have walked and many others as well as we learn to walk in The Spirit.
He alone has our growth chart posted on His timeline, always stretching us, building strength, developing spiritual muscles and teaching us discipline as we seem only to be growing one inch at a time.
But at the same time, learning we don’t need to measure up to anyone else’s standard or position or standing.
What a SAVIOR!
He builds strength… it was never about the ballet but about the discipline.. it was never about the performance, but the dance.
It was never about the Relevé i.e. a rise to the toes from the flat foot in ballet dancing but about when to rise up and when to stay.
It was never about the Pirouette which relates to a 360 degree turn around or “whirl” around.
It was about coming full circle.
Over time, I have learned that many times a pirouette was only a complete turn to take me to a new place and when I was learning it in the natural, I was taught to “SPOT” (fix my gaze on the direction I would be turning) before I did the pirouette.
Yes, later, I learned I was to Fix my FOCUS.
The LORD was training me even then to have a SINGLE EYE.
I now understand that HE alone was my Dance Master and Master of the dance. He never wasted one instruction, one detail while He was training me to “Dance with Him” in a fine romance.
Every pain, every gain, every bow, every turn, every stretch, every dream had a purpose in His plan.
Beloved, the ballet performs a story. All the time He was writing my story, one pirouette at a time…
A Word in Season
“So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it,” Isaiah 55:11.
Come into alignment with God’s Word. Prophesy what you desire to see manifest, and take advantage of the power of the spoken Word!
Let’s partner with Heaven and release prophetic decrees that will bring the demonstration of healing, signs and wonders.
This is a Word in season for every Believer to lay hold of now.
The LORD watches over His word and performs it.
The Sword of The LORD is no ordinary thing. The sword is the King’s seal and His Sword. He gives the authority to TAKE DOWN and demolish the kingdoms of darkness.
It is time to take the Sword of The LORD and use it to cut away the deception and lies of the enemy. We must get truth into the hearts of those who are deceived. Those who have believed a lie will be set free indeed!
Swing that Sword, divide soul and spirit, with His mighty Word.
Until sinners fall on their knees, until the nations all have heard. Let truth be revealed far and wide until they understand The LORD is on their side.
Draw His Sword time and again until true revival is in the wind, travail shall prevail and convict of sin bringing multitudes to freedom until the end.
We must remember the weapons of your warfare are not carnal but MIGHTY through your God for the pulling down of strongholds.
We are being commissioned as the Warrior Bride to take back that which has been stolen.
Speak the WORD and watch the impossible change to possible!
The LORD Asks: ‘May I Have This Dance?’
Beloved, above the maddening crowd, I can still hear The LORD whisper, “Come away with me My Beloved.
Do NOT despair when things are hidden from your sight or beyond your ability to understand. This is a time to trust Me with all things because nothing is hidden from Me,” says The LORD,
“Oh, How I love and trust that still small voice that brings peace to My Heart.”
“For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light,” Mark 4:22.
“I will reveal the truth of every situation in due time. My light dispels all darkness so fret not, I AM working behind the scenes.
Many are experiencing times of feeling all alone, disconnected and unsettled. So I say, encourage yourself just as David did.
Remember that David DANCED before Me… The Spirit of The LORD is moving upon your heart even now… so Dance as David danced….
He remembered my goodness and I exhort you to remember all.. Don’t allow discouragement to cut in and dance with you… Don’t… DANCE ON!
So take hold of My unchanging Hand…
I AM calling out to you “MAY I HAVE THIS DANCE?”
You can rest in my embrace for I have called you MINE.
As My New Song is coming into your heart, it is bringing an expectancy of great things to come so establish yourself in peace.
Let your heart be established firmly that I AM carrying you in My Heart.
Fear thou not for I AM with thee… be not dismayed for I AM thy God. I will strengthen thee. Yea — I will help thee!”
