This reminds me of what happened in Acts 2. The Bible tells about a time when Jesus' disciples and followers were in an upper room together. They were continuing to "dance" and believe what Jesus had told them. Then on the day of Pentecost the presence of God, the Holy Spirit, filled the room and everyone in the room was baptized (immersed) by the Holy Spirit. They were able to speak in other languages and given power just as Jesus had promised. (Acts 1:8) Everyone who had gathered in Jerusalem for the feast of Pentecost from other places could understand everything the disciples were saying in their native languages. It was a miracle! There was a lot of excitement and even confusion among all the people because this wasn't "normal" behavior. People stared, laughed, and made fun of them. The religious leaders of the day were absolutely annoyed by them, and the Bible says that there were people who said they were "drunk." But the disciples didn't stop "dancing!"
Instead of being deterred by what others thought or said, Peter, led by the Spirit, stood up and explained everything that was happening. He shared about what he and the disciples had seen and experienced over the past 3 years of their lives as they followed Jesus faithfully. He shared scripture as well as their experiences. Over those 3 years a lot of people had followed Jesus from a distance, but Peter, John, James, and the disciples left everything and followed Jesus when others continued to sit on the hill. They "danced!" Then just as Jesus had promised after He was crucified, rose again, and went back to the Father, the Holy Spirit, His presence, was IN them and had changed everything. Their faithfulness had been rewarded with the promise Jesus had made to them that they would not be alone as they "danced." (John 14:26-27; 16:7-11) The Bible says that after Peter finished sharing with the people, they were so moved that they "asked the disciples to tell them what to do next." (Acts 2:37) They wanted to "dance" too! He told them to "repent, be baptized in the name of Jesus, and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38) The Bible says that Over 3000 chose to join in on that day and others believed daily! Thousands of people were running to join the disciples as they "danced", much like the people did with the dude on the hillside in the video above, drawn into something that was much bigger than themselves.
My wife, Donna, and I stepped out in faith to begin weDIGit October 1, 2010. We started "dancing" together and chose to do what we believe God had called us to do. There have been times when we felt like the dude on the hillside. Stared at, misunderstood, told we didn't have enough qualifications, and I'm pretty sure that people have thought we must be drunk too. Ever felt that way? You're not alone. But, we have continued to "dance." Even though we haven't seen the complete fulfillment of the vision God placed in us, we are still "dancing." Peter and the followers of Christ saw 3000 people choose to follow Christ in one day, and we still serve the same God. If we choose to be obedient, faithful, and steady in what God has called us to do, He will always keep His promises. He will never leave us or forsake us. When we listen to God's presence in us, the Holy Spirit, and continue to believe in what He has called us to do, we will wake up one day and be so thankful we didn't stop "dancing!" Just like the dude on the hillside and Peter with the disciples, as we see the promises of God coming true in our lives we will begin to see others choosing to join in with us too.
Hebrews 11:6 says in the Amplified Bible, "But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]." I hear the Spirit saying to us, "DANCE!!!" It may be to face something we've been avoiding, or finally take that step of faith in our life, family, ministry, business, and future. Whatever it is we have to get up and start "dancing." Then when others began to join us and we get lost in the middle of the crowd like the guy in the video, we can smile and have a testimony of God's faithfulness. Oh yeah, By the way, When we walk in obedience to Him, He never lets you "dance" alone.
