OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS MONDAY 15TH JANUARY 2018 – DANCING BEFORE YOUR OWNER
MEMORISE: And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. 2 Samuel 6:14
Please read: 2 Samuel 6:12-16
Besides standing, lifting up holy hands and going on your knees, you can also dance in worship of .the Most High God. When a dog is wagging its tail at its owner, it is acknowledging its owner.
So when you dance before God with all your heart, you are acknowledging God as your owner.
This does not include sexually provocative
dancing that attracts the opposite sex, rather it is a dance that glorifies God.
When you truly dance to please God, acknowledging Him as your owner and thanking Him with all your heart, you will not leave His presence empty. You will leave with a load of His presence and power. Read Open Heavens 15th January 2018
When the captured Ark of the Covenant was brought back to Israel, King David danced with all his might. He laid aside his position as king
and danced as a subject to the Kings of Kings.
David was truly a man after God’s heart! He did not care about the opinions of men but God. Are you too refined, too cultured, too honourable or simply too big to dance for your Owner? Change today.
If you cannot dance for God, who else will you dance for?
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. I am Thine 0 Lord I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
