Our message through movement should be crystal clear. People should not leave "scratching their heads" when we are finished. Granted, there may be those who lack a foundational understanding of the Word, and may miss some key things. We should not cause mass confusion when we dance.

In order to be the most effective, we need to employ techniques that work to bring the message to life. Using mirrors during rehearsals help us to see what the audience will see. Using props or flags and banners with written words can also help visually. If we take the necessary steps, even children will be able to receive the message.

We must also consider that everyone we may come in contact with may not speak the same language. Strong facial expressions and meaningful motion can be understood beyond language barriers. Sharpening our skills as movement ministers will halp us to be effective even when we are speechless.

Daniel 10:14-15 (NKJV)
Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” When he had spoken such words to me, I turned my face toward the ground and became speechless.

Matthew 10:20 (NKJV)
For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.

Luke 1:22 (NKJV)
But when he came out, he could not speak to them; and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple, for he beckoned to them and remained speechless.
