A Faithful God

If there’s one thing I’ve been learning on tour, it’s that God is faithful. It might sound cliche, but I’m truly starting to see just how faithful God really is.

I grew up in church and in a Christian home. I always knew that God is faithful, but never really understood it. I saw God’s faithfulness in the Bible, but never really thought about how that applied to me. It was always easy for me to understand God on a head-knowledge level, but difficult for me to actually apply it to my life.

Well, road life has taught me how faithful God is in spite of my own weaknesses and shortcomings. There were times right before a concert when I was met with exhaustion and fatigue, but God was faithful in providing strength that I knew only came from him. I see God’s faithfulness when we get 10 students at one venue willing to take a step in faith and audition to be a part of this program. I see God’s faithfulness during times where our van and trailer breaks down, and God provides people to not only help us fix our trailer problems, but they offer to do it for free. I see God’s faithfulness when elementary students tell us after our performance that they understood our drama about the gospel. I see God’s faithfulness when my power cable for my keyboard breaks 10 minutes before a concert starts, and the venue just so happens to have a compatible power cable I could use. I see God’s faithfulness within our team when we conflicts arise, but we’re able to resolve issues in a Christ-like way.

I can go on and on about how God has been faithful to us. But, I think it’s important to remember that in the moments when doubt and fear start to creep in, be reminded that God is a big God. I’ve learned that God will continue to use us to do his work, even if we feel incapable or worse, unwilling to do so. He is constantly on the move, and it’s up to us to decide whether we want to be a part of it or not.
