It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24 NKJV
God delivered Israel from slavery in Egypt. He led them into the Promised Land as a pillar of fire by night and a cloud by day. He parted the Red Sea. They crossed on dry land. He caused the waters to flow back into place and destroyed the Egyptian army.
The Lord provided food and water for His people in the desert. He revealed Himself to the Children of Israel in many ways many times. God revealed His great love for Israel and their special place in His plan for creation.
Israel disobeyed God. They turned their backs on the Lord. They worshipped idols and false gods of their own design. They chose to live in the same way as the nations that surrounded them.
God was with Israel. And yet they never fully gave their hearts to Him. Were they really that stubborn? They were no different than you and I. We are as unfaithful as the children of Israel. We have all made the same poor choices!
God revealed Himself to me. I witnessed the greatest miracles of all. I have seen broken lives, families and hearts restored. I witnessed a man on his death bed turn to faith in Jesus. He passed with his eyes closed because he was not struggling with death. He was led peacefully into the presence of the Lord.
I witnessed the mercy and grace of God with my own eyes. Even in the light of the revelation I received I am unable to fully live my life in obedience to Jesus!
God loved the people of Israel. His love for them was unconditional. God promised to bless and prosper the children of Israel even though they were unfaithful and rebellious.
God loves us. His love for us is unconditional. Jesus will restore the relationship of perfect love He created us for. He will prosper us with joy. He knows we are not perfect. He knows we cannot live sinless lives. God wants us to trust Him who is perfect to live out His life in us and through us!
I have seen children dance on the feet of their parents at weddings and parties. They are able to dance perfectly and in step on the feet of someone who loves them without their feet ever touching the ground!
Jesus wants you to take His hand today. He wants to lead as you dance joyfully and peacefully through life. You can dance through life with joy and peace because Jesus is holding your hand and leading you step by step in perfect rhythm with Him!
Take Jesus’ hand and dance with joy regardless of your circumstances. Jesus hears the call of your heart before the words even leave your mouth!
