Want to increase your confidence as a worship leader?
Find a quiet place.
Wash your heart in the water of His word.
Fix your gaze upon Jesus.
Look steadily upon His worth, His beauty, His kindness, His love, His excellence.
When you feel tempted to move on to more “productive” tasks, force yourself to stay a little longer.
There’s nothing more productive in all the world.
Your confidence as a worship leader stems from your confidence in God.
Because He is who He says He is, you do what He’s called you to do.
What A Worship Leader Does
You lead worship because you are convinced – convinced that Jesus is worth living and dying for.
Convinced that He is brighter than the shine of this world.
Convinced that He is worthy of undying affection, praise, and willing obedience.
You call people to love Him. You stir affections for the Creator. You are a voice – calling people to rediscover the reason for their existence.
Think about it. It’s not really about you – your voice, your ability, your looks, your stage presence, your anything.
There’s too much “you” in that.
Rather, the best worship leaders are obsessed with Jesus. Simple to say, easy to divert from.
Jesus never gets old. The truth never goes out of style. But our hearts have a tendency to wander.
Don’t Forget This
Consider this post a reminder to lift your eyes today. Look upon the Savior, stand in awe, and cry out for fresh revelation.
We should never stop seeing the Savior – discovering the Savior – falling more in love with the Savior.
Life is discovery.
May our wanderings be a daily reminder that there’s nothing more important than keeping the wonder of God before our eyes.
Because the more we do this, the more our congregations will see Him.
And you can be confident: that is what they need.
