Anyone who can sing can be a musician, and even better, fill in the post of a worship leader. But what is it that makes you, as a worship leader for a generation pregnant with revival, different? Shouldn’t it be the manifest presence of God you bring down?

Every worship leader should seek God for a revival. The difference between his/her music and an unbeliever’s music then becomes the presence and the glory of God that such a person hosts through the music. The best worship leaders are not the most talented ones, but those who learn to worship and lead while being connected to heaven. When your spirit is connected to heaven, you hear heaven’s music, sing heaven’s choice of songs & bring heaven’s atmosphere down.

The word “worship pastor” seems to explain the role of a “worship leader” better. Although in today’s church service setting it may seem impractical, it is important that one be taught to be prepared to worship the Lord. In this preparation of hearts and renewal of minds, worship moves to the next dimension.

For the Spirit of God to connect with and lead you, you need to deliberately disconnect with the audience and the cares of a stage performance, while being more cautious about hosting God with your songs. When Jesus prayed, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”, He was showing how every worship leader’s (worshiper’s) greatest desire should be to see heaven come down on earth. This becomes possible only when we are one in God. See more about it here.

A brilliant performance can never replace the need to immerse yourself in God, because what you soak in throughout the week is what you bring forth when you stand up to lead. [ClickToTweet] It is when you cross the Outer Courts in yourself and in your private worship life, that you come in the presence of the God of the holy of holies, and this requires walking in a revival lifestyle.

Here, I would like to stress that no unprepared heart or sinful nature of man can hold back the revival anointing on a worship leader. That’s why I believe that revival doesn’t need thousands of people, hundreds of sermons, or dozens of worship leaders – just one note struck in tune with the chords of heaven is enough for a downpour from heaven.

The question is: Are you ready to be on your knees to be a worshiper first before being a worship leader? Remember, you are not a servant who loves, but a lover who serves. [ClickToTweet] We were made to love.

Let us therefore dream, believe and pray for a revival that will sweep our land.
