People can have the best talent and most perfect voice but if the anointing isnt there its just a another song... We sometimes sing simple songs and there again is that "Awesomeness" that makes it. As child of God we know that it is the anointing that rest upon the artist, words and song...But many times I wonder what David saw when he worshipped God and what God saw when He heard David's song.
Did he have a great voice?
Did he sing like Josh Groban?
Did David play the harp in a way that impressed the people AND GOD or did he tap into the Spirit every time?
Did he have the frustrations we have?
Davids heart was to bring the Ark back... to see it restored. He understood God's heart. Do we?
We have a responsability to develop our talents and our voices. But lets not forget that a heart connected with God, a heart that spends time with God can touch the heart of the weak and weary...but how do we connect? ....Do we pray before the service? Does the team realise the importance of spending time with God? Do they really make time and put in the effort?
We as team leaders and worshippers need to create the opportunity for the team to press in..to focus as a group...
This is my challenge to you......
Allow your team and yourself to SOAK as a team in the presence of God. That makes the difference in each and every song... A heart that is connected....an heart influenced and energised by God.
So this is what I want to know: How much time do we dedicate to the practise of new songs vs soaking as a team?
Think about this and tell me... Lets talk about this....If you feel God working this in you, join the group "Soaking Sessions-once a month" and lets experience and share God!
Testimony: We started soaking as a group and let me tell you, God visits us in an awesome way. It has influenced our services to such an extent that the people dont want to go home. Our Sunday services is now more than ever focused on God and people run to the altar (during worhip) to accept Jesus just because its a manifestation of Gods Word.
Lest lift up Jesus!
