Let our testimonies not bring glory to the enemy. We should not be terrified or ignorant concerning his methods. We should demonstrate the overwhelming power of God to defeat the enemy. In the ministry of movement, we may minister pieces that depict the defeat of the adversary. Whenever we show this through dance, we must be very careful to highlight that it is the Lord Who tramples down the enemy. There are times when God will use us as instruments to rout the enemy, but it is only at His direction that we triumph.

If our choreography depicts us a "super humans" whose own powers and strength rule, we have missed the truth. When David slew Goliath, he used what may have seemed to be an ineffectual weapon in the form of stones. When the Lord sent people to war, if would often be done with few people to show the Sovereign Power of God at work. Our praise and worship may seem small to some who would like to ridicule our obedience, but is very effective at disarming the devices of the enemy.

We must be prayerful even as we use other dancers to impersonate the forces of darkness. We are not to fear the enemy, but if we exhibit through song and movement that we can easily push over, beat, and stomp on the opponent, we could be making a mockery of a very serious situation. It is not by might nor power, but by His Spirit that we must operate. Evil is nothing to play with. Let us make sure to live sanctified lives so that the Lord may use us in His arsenal of weapons against darkness to bring others into the Light.

Exodus 15:4-6 (NKJV)
Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea. The depths have covered them; They sank to the bottom like a stone. “Your right hand, O LORD, has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O LORD, has dashed the enemy in pieces.

Exodus 15:9-11 (NKJV)
The enemy said, ‘I will pursue,I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; My desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, My hand shall destroy them.’ You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; They sank like lead in the mighty waters. “Who is like You, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

2 Kings 9:24 (NKJV)
Now Jehu drew his bow with full strength and shot Jehoram between his arms; and the arrow came out at his heart, and he sank down in his chariot.

1 Samuel 17:49 (NKJV)
Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth.

Psalm 69:14 (NKJV)
Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink; Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.
