When you lead worship, are you complaining or praying when things go wrong?
Things do go wrong when worship leading, as you may know, but many times the success of the ministry depends on our attitude, doesn’t it?
Are you Complaining or Praying
I know, there is a huge tendency to complain when things go wrong, and this is just human nature. So when you face a challenge, are you complaining or praying? I mean, when push comes to shove, are you complaining or praying your way through the issues?
Let’s face it, all of us are inclined to complain from time to time, even constantly, when things do not work out as we have planned. But how many of us know that when things go wrong or at least differently to our original plans in our worship leading, it is very often God leading us in a different way. Perhaps He is working on our character, or perhaps He is working on someone in the band.
If you complain from the outset, it reveals that our spirit is not actually submitting to the Holy Spirit. We should have a great attitude like Job in adversity, but often we just complain and whine like the Israelites in the Exodus!
This podcast is about ceasing the complaints and starting the prayer because God can use more effectively if we are focussed not on our problems and setbacks but on our prayer life. It is exciting because it is all about seeing the Lord in the midst of our apparent trouble, and about focussing on His will for our lives instead of complaining. This podcast might allow all of us the opportunity to experience what Habakkuk did over three chapters, and go from questioning God to this…
Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
