Over the weekend, we witnessed the power of a spirit yielded to God. One of the new converts was dancing for the first time, and she was terrified. To further complicate the situation, one of the dancers was not with us. So here we were, out-of-town, and it was her first time. So they had to learn, within two hours new steps. Fear had gripped them. Tears backstage. Before the music started, the director told the audience shared they had to learn new parts in less than two hours, and asked for our prayers. The music started, and when it came time for her part, she step boldly into the power that was within her. The audience leaped to their feet. It was a triumph. We all witnessed and felt it. We became part of the Power. And that is how it should be. We should alway step, leap, jump, walk forward, and pass our fears into the sacred place of power and appointment.
Remember being on the playground for the first time. We wanted to try everything. There is no fear. The monkey bars, teeter-totter, jungle gym, swings…whatever there was we wanted to go there and try it. And when we felt the point of mastery…we were free, and felt “I can do it all.” That is the transforming power of God. There is no fear in God. There is liberty from bondage, from the shackles, the chains, the sin that so easily besets us. He gave us power, love and a sound mind. We feel capable, ready to use whatever talents, skills, abilities with the world to His glory. His power opens us up to our rightful place in the kingdom, where we experience what it is like to be children of the King. It is joyous. It is glorious the shining brightness of His love and power.
