To Be a Worship Leader

There are many reasons why, when we truly want to be a worship leader, we can feel down.  It can be as straightforward as coming off a late evening, feeling worn-out or sick or simply plain worn out, right through to having major events disturbing our sense of joyfulness, things like marriage trouble, the passing away of a familiar friend or a fight with someone in your band just prior to the service.

In my case it was unquestionably a late night after a journey to a near by city which left me feeling fatigued, lackluster and a bit down or miserable when it came to worship leading.

Be a Worship Leader Despite How You Feel!

Uninspired was definitely a good word, and I looked around at the others in my worship band, recognized that if I was going to be a worship leader in the truest sense of the word I would have to carry quite a few of these guys since their skill was not great, but then I saw something else.  They too were fatigued and lethargic.  Perhaps it was infectious!

I prayed and asked the Lord to assist me to be a worship leader not only on stage, but also on a personal level with my team.  I realized that when we are weak, He is strong (2 Cor 12:10).  I realized again that this whole vocation of worship leading is not about me, and how I feel, it’s about Him!  I took a good, hard look at myself, and realized that in truth I am merely a servant, not a singer, not a guitarist and definitely not a star!  I recognized that no matter how I felt inside, to be a worship leader is to required a change in my way of thinking and continue to serve, no matter what the price.

Then the Lord started to move with magnificent power, firstly in my own heart, and then in the hearts of the singers and musicians.  I shared my labor with them for a short time, and we paused to pray as a team and give the morning to the Lord.  Whether we use our hands, feet or voices, all of us above all use out hearts, and this is the appropriate attitude of a servant, and if I want to be a worship leader I must first be a servant.

So when the worship leading began, almost from the very first song, you could feel the presence of the Lord, and His delight at our change of heart, and at our choice to do our best no matter what we felt at that moment.  In our weakness, He showed Himself strong, and we were rewarded with a magnificent and very intimate time of worship.
