The process IS the platform.
The original recording is from Creative Team Night on February 13, 2018.
Am I waiting for God to change me, while He is waiting for me to step first?
If you want to see change, hard work comes first.
After hard work comes temporary weakness.
If you do not push yourself to failure, do not expect to grow.
Jesus allowed himself to experience temporary weakness, He pushed to failure at the cross, so that He would accomplish real strength for humanity in the resurrection.
People may see your gifting, but when they know how you got there, that's where real ministry happens. You become a funnel for God's transforming power.
A pedestal is something that holds something worthy of glory. A pillar bears the weight of something bigger than itself.
Are you will to push past where others were willing to stop? Do not stop one stop short.
Worship leading is encouraging and empowering OTHERS to get to the next stop too.
Are you bearing weight so that the burden is less on others?
You're not going to know what you've been prepared for until you "step into the water".
Don't be the audience to what God is doing.
