Many I know desire to dance before The LORD but they do not think they have what it takes.
All it takes is a desire and a yielded heart.
I didn’t always dance in the spirit. I have always been very shy around people.
I went to a church where there were ladies who danced. It wasn’t what I was used to seeing.
Many used to hop and skip in place, but these ladies twirled and flowed by the leading of the Holy Spirit and you would sense a freedom upon them.
These ladies they didn’t allow their physical bodies to hinder what God was doing in their heart and through them.
I desired this but in the natural there would be no way I would do it!
One morning, these ladies came up to me and said they wanted to pray over my feet so that I could dance like them.
To myself I laughed. One year later, during a fast and prayer with worship at the church, I felt a movement in my spirit, almost like when I first received the baptism in the Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
I yielded to this movement within and I have been dancing ever since!
Dancing is powerful. You are actually pulling down strongholds of the enemy and dancing upon his head.
He doesn’t like when we do a holy dance. It activates the angels to dance with us!
Every motion that we make we are doing it in power against the enemy… whether you raise you arms and wave them, clap your hands, shout, or dance. There is a purpose in every motion.
The LORD loves to dance! He loves to take us by the hand in romance.
He will lead your every step. And He loves to dance what some may call a “wild man” dance, just like what King David would do.
David became very undignified and brought embarrassment to those close to him. And at times when we yield completely to Him in dance the enemy will get real loud, telling us we are foolish and making us look at ourselves, at whether we were graceful or not.
He will do whatever it takes to stop you but don’t allow it. Go with the flow and never allow yourself or anyone else to quench the flow of the Holy Spirit. We must love God and obey Him and not man!
For many years I would not bow down, because no one around me would do it, but I knew in my heart God was saying to do it.
One day I said, “OK, I will do it.” and immediately the presence of God was so strongly upon me I didn’t know why I didn’t do it much sooner.
We are to be a forerunner… whether others will follow or not. We are to be a trailblazer giving others the confidence to yield wholly to His leading!
God said to come out from the evil taskmaster of religion. Religious spirits make you adapt to formalism and ritual and cause you to come under the control and dictatorship of man.
Be set free of anything that is connected with it. Yes, and be set free.
Who the Son sets free is free indeed. God said if no one will praise Him the rocks will! I don’t want the trees to have to clap their hands and the rocks praise to Him.
Delight yourself in His sweet embrace. Allow Him to take you by hand and twirl you and lead you in a dance that you will not forget.
One night with the King and you will never be the same. If you desire to dance, step out to the leading of The LORD when He asks you for this dance.
Take the first step and never turn back to the life of bondage.
Yes, this is the day The LORD has made and we are to rejoice and be glad in it!

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
