Axiom 2: God desires worship
Axiom 3: We can worship God by dancing before Him.

To learn how to worship Jesus in freedom and liberty by using your whole body to express yourself to Him.
Quiet your self before God. Pray for His Holy Spirit to lead you. Turn on the music and let the Holy Spirit and move you. Do not judge how you look or how it feels. Let go and do whatever the Spirit desires to do. There is no set way to do this so feel free to experiment. Let go of all your inhibitions and focus on loving Jesus. Dance.
If you allow Him to, the Holy Spirit will literally take over your body and move through you. You will feel as if your body wants to flow in certain ways so allow it to do so. Relinquish control to the Holy Spirit.
This can be a very profound spiritual experience. Don’t be afraid of emotion: it is impossible not to be emotional when you feel God.
Note: You can dance by yourself or with another.
This exercise is meant to allow you to practice yielding your entire body, soul, and spirit to God.
Note: The choice of music is important. Be Spirit led and pick music that honors God.
P.S. share your testimonies of what God does for others to read…it will be a great encouragement to everyone!
