Last night I had a dream. In this dream I was very excited
about a revelation I was being given about how we are opposed
when we dance for the Lord. In this dream I remembered how
in real life, my friend Kate, many years ago, came under fire
when she danced unto the Lord. And another friend Katey was
told not to dance in her church. In my dream I was trying
to communicate to Kate how important it is to Jesus for us
to dance in worship, and how if its so important to Him it
must be important to us. In my dream Kate was trying to sleep
and really needing the rest, but I kept her awake trying to
explain to her this revelation.
Practising dancing for Aglow International
Yesterday the Lord told me in the morning that this day would
be important spiritually. I didn't know why till afterwards.
When I asked the Lord at the end of the day why this day had
been so important, He told me that as we danced in Doncaster
that strongholds were being brought down. My friend's W and
J and myself, had got together to practise dancing for Aglow
International later this month. We met in a church to go on
to the venue, the Danum, to practise. Wynne had felt led to
dance at the church during the service. Afterwards she was
told to make sure if she danced again to do it at the back
of the church and not the front, so as not to put new believers
So I asked the Lord
This morning I got before the Father on this matter. I too
had been a bit unsure when W was worshipping in dance in the
church. I was confused, because I also had felt as though
an injustice had been done when she had been confronted. Should
I have been feeling this injustice, as I too had felt had
felt unsure about her dancing.
The wisdom God gave me as I laid it down before Him was this....
"BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS
If a church opposes, do not break their rules for they have
authority in that church. But where you can dance...then dance.
For example W had been told she could dance at the back
of the church, so that opportunity could have been taken by
When more people dance, the one on her own will not look
quite as different. We need each other in this. That's maybe
why, in my dream, I was trying to communicate the importance
to the others.... that we did this as a group.
Some of my songs have prophesied about dancing for the Lord.
My songs for years have included dancing, but it wasn't until
this year that I discovered more about dancing and the spiritual
significance it has..
Rhythm of the Dance
In the lyric of this song we can see what is happening in
the spiritual realm as we are singing, dancing and being joyful
before the Lord in celebration....
You call us to celebrate, make merry,
Hearts in harmony,
with heaven's symphony, melodies ring
You invite us, to a banquet,
of joy and with thanks
And you lead us in the rhythm of the dance
You gave us your glory,
like the Father did the Son
Just like you prayed, on that last day, so we would be one
Its heaven, on earth, just like above
As we step in time and dance in line
to your heartbeat of love
We're gathering, together,
in one accord
We bind up kings, for as we sing,
we're wielding the sword
To execute judgement
keeping nobles in chains
Oh what a story, you shared this glory with all of your saints.
You paint us, a promise,
with the colours of a rainbow
Dancing in the night on your path
of light, you bid us to follow
Your preparing, a bride,
adorned in white.
gentle as doves, hearts fired with your love, lamps burning
Praise the LORD.[a]
Sing to the LORD a new song,
his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
For the LORD takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
and sing for joy on their beds.
May the praise of God be in their mouths
and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to inflict vengeance on the nations
and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters,
their nobles with shackles of iron,
to carry out the sentence written against them
this is the glory of all his faithful people.
Praise the LORD.
