There is nothing worse than a dance partner who doesn’t know who’s supposed to be leading. First he leads, and then he hesitates, not sure if he’s leading or following. Inevitably, someone’s toes get stepped on.
Watch an old Fred Astaire movie if you want to see how it’s done right. He confidently leads and his partner is secure in his arms just gliding along with him. No one trips over the other. No one’s toes get trampled.
The Holy Spirit is a great dancer. He is confident in his lead. He knows exactly where the next step is supposed to be. He holds on to His partner with grace and strength helping to keep balance while moving fluidly along.
Allow yourself to dance with the Spirit. Allow Him to guide you and lead you from one step to the next. He will never step on your toes, so be sure not to step on His. He is the perfect partner and you will have the time of your life if you just let go and allow Him to lead.
“For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” – Romans 8:14 (NASB)
