So settle back and listen to, and get ready to be encouraged and blessed by this weeks very special adversity worship leader podcast…

Let me also finish with a quote from Billy Graham, that I received this morning in my devotional…

“The eagle is the only bird that can lock its wings and wait for the right wind. He waits for the updraft and never has to flap his wings, just soar. So as we wait on God He will help us use the adversities and strong winds to benefit us! The Bible says, “They that wait upon the LORD… shall mount up with wings as eagles” (Isaiah 40:31).
Christians can rejoice in the midst of persecution because they have eternity’s values in view. When the pressures are on, they look beyond their present predicament to the glories of heaven. The thought of the future life with its prerogatives and joys helps to make the trials of the present seem light and transient. “For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.””

(Unto the Hills: A Daily Devotional)

Worship Devotions- How Bad Do You Want It?

How badly do you want it

Nehemiah 1:11
How badly do you want itLord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favour in the presence of this man. ‘

How much do you want success in your worship leading? We say we want to be successful as worship leaders, but if we look deep within we will recognize that we are only prepared to go so far to achieve our goals. We might as well pray, “Lord, give me success as long as I don’t have to pay too much for it!”

Nehemiah also prayed for success, but he was prepared to put his money where his mouth wants as far as stepping out in faith. By going before the king it was taking a huge chance, but he was soon removed and sent desperate to successful he’s people he was prepared to pay any price!

What about you? Are you prepared to pay any costs to be successful in your chosen ministry? How bad do you want it? Are you prepared to train, are you prepared to practice, are you prepared to devote time and money to achieve the success you seek? If you put the effort into training, serving and learning, and if you step out in faith trusting God to do as He has promised, then he will crown your efforts with success.

I want a new Lamborghini. I can just see myself cruising down the road in this exquisite vehicle. And it is not beyond my reach! If I’m prepared to sell my home, my car, my business and possibly my children, I can have a new Lamborghini. The thing is, as nice as that would be, I just don’t want to that badly. It just doesn’t mean that much to me.

So if you truly want success as a worship leader, put time and effort into training and into your personal relationship with the Lord, and trust him to crown your efforts with success!
