Did you know that God is a dancing God ?
My guess is that you would say , “ Yes !” thinking of the well-known verse in Zephaniah 3:17 where we read in some translations that “ He will dance for joy over you with singing .” ( TLV ) I would also venture to guess that when most believers think of God dancing ( if they do at all ), it is within the context of God delighting in us , being filled with affection for us as a loving Father and His attention focused on us His children . Several worship songs come to my mind that create this kind of picture .

The context I want to share with you came as a life-changing , breakthroughproducing , power-packed revelation to me .
