Lord, as VMCI Dance ministry we want to be free in our worship and praise to You. Help us get rid of all self-consciousness and just have our eyes on You as we praise and worship You. Set our feet to dancing, Lord.
Dancing and rejoicing before the Lord is also an effective weapon before we go to war against Satan (Psalms. 149:1-9). Jehoshaphat sent the singers ahead of his army and ambushes against their enemies were established: “And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever” (2 Chronicles. 20:21, KJV).
David made this discovery years ago when he wrote, “Let them praise His name in the dance; let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp” (psalms 149 v. 3)
We shall worship God in Spirit and in truth as the elders and angels do in Heaven :
David was a man after God’s own heart because he often danced before the Lord with all of his heart. We are exhorted to praise the Lord with our whole being. Dancing is a good way to do this.
When we worship God we develop such traits as forgiveness, tenderness, justice, righteousness, purity, kindness, and love. All of this is preparing us for eternal life in heaven with God and Christ. As we are told in Colossians 3:2 to, “Set your mind on things above, and not on things on the earth.”
