As a part of the creative ministries team of OM Arts International called DanceLink, Linda travels to many different countries teaching men and women to worship God and share the Gospel through dance worship. During a recent trip to Asia, Linda met a young woman named Esther who had a life of forced prostitution and Hinduism. Linda felt a special burden for Esther. Out of all the dancers, Esther was the most disruptive and unhelpful. Linda felt the need to confront her, but before she could, Esther asked to give her testimony.
“When Linda asked us to dance and listen for the voice of Jesus, I felt sleepy and giggly. Suddenly a voice said to me, ‘You belong to Me now. Stay awake, listen, and learn.’”
Linda took the opportunity to explain that Satan wants to prevent us from hearing the voice of Jesus in our lives. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10). Satan wants to rob us of ability to hear the Holy Spirit minister to us, but God has given us the strength to be still and listen to His voice over all the distractions in our lives. Esther took Linda’s words to heart and is now growing in her knowledge and love for the Lord Jesus.
