Hour Father...

If we have been in dance ministry for any significant amount of time, then there should be signs of growth both spiritually and physically. All dancers are not called to the same assignment, but those of us who have embraced the ministry of dance may experience some transitions as we walk further with the Lord. The key is to not be fearful when the Holy Spirit prompts us to do the unexpected.

When we listen to the Lord, there are times when we may have to move outside of the scheduled 4-7 minute pre-recorded song. We may dance with the praise team or live music... We may dance while the Word is being preached... He may direct us to wave a banner over someone... We may lay hands on people for deliverance... We must be careful, for we are only to operate in this realm at the Lord's direction.

We may not have two weeks notice to get ready to move. When we are called, we must answer. As we continue in the Word and seek the Lord, He may have us step out in an instant to show His wonder-working power. Our flesh cannot get in the way of the Lord's glory. If the Lord tells us to do the unusual this very hour, will we be ready to perform what He says?

Luke 12:12 (NKJV)
For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”

John 4:23 (NKJV)
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

John 12:23 (NKJV)
But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.

John 12:27 (NKJV)
“Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour.
