Messages of Hope & Encouragement

Dancing backwards.   Since you are my rock and fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.   Psalm 31: v3

We are the church, the bride of Christ (Revelations 21v2).  In ballroom dancing when doing the first dance at the wedding the groom (Christ Matthew 25: v1) takes the lead and the bride (that is us the church Revelation 21: v9) has to move backwards.  d us to the place we are supposed to be.

That means keeping in contact with Jesus by Him holding our shoulder and round our back to lead us and we have to trust Him that wherever He takes us we are safe in his arms.  We, the bride of Christ, can’t see where we are going as we are dancing backwards facing only Jesus.  It is tempting for the bride to turn around and look behind or try to control where she is being led but at this very difficult time of Coronavirus challenge, our role is to rest safe in Jesus’ arms, look into His face and trust Him that He will lea

Let’s worship Jesus and sing My Guardian and Guide me Oh Thy Great Jehovah as a sign that we are willing to be lead safely by Him.
