Is your music ministry in a challenging season? Does it seem like you’re experiencing one trial after another? My friend, there will be times when it feels like what you have been called to do just isn't happening.
Maybe the funds aren't there to complete the CD. Maybe the church you are minister of music at isn't embracing a new style of music you feel led to introduce. Maybe someone who just got into the industry seems to be getting the success you hoped you'd have by now. In music ministry there are ups and downs. But God has one question for you: In spite of what you see, will you remain faithful to the vision?
God wants to see how committed you are. Will you roll out when the going gets tough? Will you walk away from the path He's chosen for you because you see opposition? Will you forsake the calling on your life and die with the music in you?
When God gives an assignment, there is no guarantee of comfort. And there are no promises of what you will or will not go through to get there. But God does promise you that He will never leave you nor forsake you.
When you get to the end of your journey, will you be able to say like Paul, "I was not disobedient to the vision"? I certainly hope so. The world is waiting on you.
