I don’t know why some folks feel it’s un-scriptural, un-holy or ‘canal’ to dance in God’s presence. This is part what I call ‘Doctrine-gone-south’ phenomenon.
There’s time for lifting hands. Time for solemn worship. Time for clapping. And likewise for dancing. The Lord wants us to dance (Jer. 31:4) – The Psalmist says in Ps 149:3-4 ‘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…’ – See, I didn’t make it up!
As long as it is unto the LORD, please dance especially during the time of praise worship in your church. Don’t be intimidated. And don’t look down on those who dance in His presence because no one can afford to be the next Michal (2 Sam. 6)
Next time you have the opportunity to dance in His presence, please do so with all your might. Only the Living can praise God!
