20 Questions

We can never stop seeking the Lord for instructions. Dance ministry does not work by formulas. Any movement ministry operating without a prayer connection to the Father will find themselves in error. We can stand with assurance when we are certain that we have heard the Lord's voice.

Prayer coupled with the Word will grant us clarity and confidence through Him. When we seek answers through prayer, we will be sustained, renewed, refreshed, revived, and accurate. If we are still questioning our purpose in the dance ministry, then it is time to be still and get an understanding before moving any further.

Answers from the Lord come in a variety of ways. There are times when we will hear Him "internally." These are times that a direct message will come from Him that assures us of the direct line of communication between us and Him. Other times, He may use a prophet, preacher, or another person to confirm what He has told us. We may also read printed material (especially the Word of God) that will encourage us and confirm His workings. Whatever way the Lord speaks to us, we must continue to inquire of Him. Our obedience is the key to results. Without Him, we can do nothing.

Judges 20:18 (NKJV)
Then the children of Israel arose and went up to the house of God to inquire of God. They said, “Which of us shall go up first to battle against the children of Benjamin?” The LORD said, “Judah first!”

1 Samuel 1:20 (NKJV)
So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked for him from the LORD.”

Psalm 27:4 (NKJV)
One thing I have desired of the LORD, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple.

1 John 3:22 (NKJV)
And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
