I danced with God today.
I put on worship music and danced like I was in Jesus’ arms. He twirled me around like I was a princess and in His eyes I am.
He loves us and I smile wide at the thought. My Jesus loves me. Our Jesus loves us. Our sweet Jesus.
After we danced I leaned my head against His chest and breathed in His presence. I know I feel safe in His lap–in His arms. The intimacy we share is like no other. When I’m with Him I feel completely safe, completely whole, and content.
And I am home.
This only happens when I block everyone and everything out. There’s a peace that’s so supernatural that it can’t be scientifically proven.
Charles Spurgeon once said, “Earth has no words that can convey the holy calm of a soul leaning on Jesus.” Have you experienced the holy calming presence of Jesus? It’s not too late. He’s always waiting with arms open to give it to you.
Isaiah 55:1 says, “Come, all those who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat!” God beckons us to Him. He calls, “Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good… give ear and come to me” (55:2-3). He wants to speak to us.
God exclaims, “Look! See, I’ve made David a witness to the peoples” (55:4). God has shown us through His Word that He’s doing great things.
Isaiah 55:6 commands, “Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near.” Jesus longs for us to trust in Him.
Verse 7 says, “Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on them, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.” We need to allow God to work in our lives.
“My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither My ways your ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (55:8-9).
God not only calls out to us, but He gives us reasons why we should trust Him. His plans are foolproof. He is mightier and stronger than we are. He knows the beginning, the middle, and the end. His plans are higher and more effective than our plans.
Verses 10-11 explain why His plans are more powerful than ours: “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
We can trust God’s Word and what He says to us. God doesn’t make empty promises.
Why? Because He wants us to “go out in joy and be led forth in peace.” Verses 12-13 explain that God’s desire is for us to have joy and peace in Him.
Friend, He wants you to be happy, but in Him alone. Trust Him. Let Him take your hand and lead you in a dance that is so full of grace and love that it would be silly to dance with anyone but our King.
Our Father loves us and wants to lavish His love on us (1 John 3:1). I ask you today, will you let Him?
