Sadie Robertson Huff And Christian Artist KB Discuss Trusting God

By Movieguide® Contributor

In a recent episode of her podcast, Sadie Robertson Huff and musician and author KB spoke about trusting in God’s plan for you, even when it’s hard or scary.

During an episode of her WHOA THAT’S GOOD podcast, Huff asked KB about a mission trip he went on when he was younger to West Africa.

“When the opportunity arose, I jumped all over it,” he shared. “I thought, ‘This is kind of what I do.’ My degree was in missions, for crying out loud! I felt, you know, this is what I have been trained in. The Lord is beckoning me to go towards [this].”

KB said he was initially confident when walking into a meeting about the upcoming trip, but his confidence soon “dissipated.”

A documentary was shown about the troubles and dangers in the area they were traveling to, including civil wars, cannibalism, and “a missionary that was martyred.”

After the documentary ended, KB said his pastor told the group, “If you don’t want to go, we’re not going to judge you…nothing is sinful about that. But for those who are called to go on this trip, this is a call to lay down your life for Jesus.”

“When I heard that, it sounded like how I sound in my music,” KB explained. “When I’m sharing the Gospel, I’m talking about the immeasurable value of the Lord Jesus Christ, that he’d be worth even my own life, and here I have an opportunity to test that assumption.”

After a conversation with his wife about the dangers of the trip, KB said, “I felt overwhelmed with this sense of awe that God really is as good as He says. He is not going to lead me anywhere where anything that can happen that’s outside of His schedule. If I am following Him, not a hair on my head will be touched.”

“But if [something bad] does happen,” he continued. “I will submit to Him and His leading, because there is more joy in following Jesus into the scary place than there is staying cooped up in my kind of rebellion, disobedience, lackluster lukewarmness.”

KB went on the trip and, even through the difficulties, found happiness and comfort in his faith. 

“I would rather be laying on a concrete bed in the middle of the jungle, knowing that God is smiling at me, than to be anywhere else outside of His will,” he shared. 

Huff shared her own story of following God’s will, even when it’s scary. She went on a mission trip to Somalia, and quickly found herself consumed with fear. 

“The first night we were there, I woke up and I just started quoting Psalms 91 over our room,” she said. “You know, we were just hidden under God’s wing…and I felt a peace come over the next few days.”

She continued, “We came into some kind of scary moments, [but] we just had this peace and joy [throughout the trip].”

The day the group left their hotel, a terrorist attack took place where they had been staying. 

“It was really devastating,” Huff shared. “But what it did show me is that God knew the timing of my coming and my going, and God did call me in there at that time.”

She then addressed her listeners, saying, “If God is calling you to dangerous situations, to dangerous faith, you have to realize that you do serve a dangerous God. So, if that’s what God is calling you into, say yes…because you’re going to be blown away by what you see.”
