From Sea to Shining Sea

The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof. When we allow the Lord to reveal to us the vastness of His presence, then we will be at liberty to dance whenever he unctions us to move our feet. The church platform should not be the coveted spot to dance. When we can dance in marketplaces, public locations, and wide-open spaces, then we are walking in true authority.

If we are truly "ministers of dance," then we will walk in our calling whenever the Lord has need of us. This will mean that we must always be prepared to minister. While we may not wear praise garments each and every time we gather for worship, the clothing that we wear should be suitable to dance in if needed. Being ready in and out of season will always mean that we stand prepared for our assignments.

Though we may be peculiar people, I am not advocating that we appear as crazed lunatics in public. We must never limit the possibilities of the workings of God. Jesus performed miracles in the streets and public places. He likened himself to living water. When we find ourselves visiting dry places, because He lives in us, that refreshing can affect those who witness us in motion. If we are truly His followers, then we should do as He did.

Deuteronomy 11:24 (NKJV)
Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory.

Isaiah 43:2 (NKJV)
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.

Ezekiel 47:9 (NKJV)
And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.

Matthew 14:29 (NKJV)
So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.

Be inspired by this video that demonstrate the liberty to dance wherever we find our feet.
