Shall We Dance?

Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. (Isaiah 48:17 KJV)

He’s our Redeemer, paying a price no one else cared to pay. Not only did they not care, they didn’t have the amount it took to pay the ransom. But our Redeemer loved us so He bought us from slavery and Satan. 

In the King and I, a teacher came into the life of the King of Siam and his children. The teacher’s name was Anna  and she had many scuffles with the king. But her job was to teach the children how to face life in a modern world, the same with the king. She worked hard to teach them but like us with God we and they fought learning even though it’s for our profit, our good. Then finally in one of the later scenes she leads the king to dance. They realize they’re in love in spite of all the little spats they’ve had. And he learns to dance because he is following.

Our God loves us enough to guide the world’s activities and keep it spinning for us and enough to became involved in every detail of our lives. he wants to teach us how to profit in this world. Not profit necessarily in money but in richness of life, of how to know the God of the Universe, and how to discern which step next. He wants us to realize without Him we have nothing. And He wants us to rejoice so He also teaches us to dance.
