It’s not the first time the world is talking about pop singer and heartthrob, Justin Bieber’s fiery and outspoken faith in God. The young artist has made a conscious effort throughout his music career, since being discovered on YouTube at the age of 13, to share his faith in Jesus openly with the world. Through the ups and downs of adolescence, coupled with the insane amount of stardom and attention he was facing, this world got the best of him along the way.
After marrying the American model, Hailey Baldwin, Bieber began to return to the public eye with unapologetic faith and repentance. He saw his own struggles and trials as an opportunity to glorify the power and love of Jesus that he has continuously returned to. Hailey Baldwin-Bieber was raised in a strong Christian household and supports, champions and encourages her husband in his pursuit of Jesus.
Most recently, Bieber (25) has been taking to Instagram to update fans on his current spiritual awakening, back to reality and back to his eternal purpose of worshipping Jesus. Last Wednesday, on August 27th, Bieber joined the worship team on stage at Churchome in Beverly Hills. In leading his very first sermon under pastor and friend, Judah Smith, Bieber shared about finding strength in weakness and how powerful that strength is when you allow God to intervene.
In the video clip he shared on his Instagram, singing the songs “Never Would Have Made it” by Warren Sapp and “To Worship You I Live” by Israel Houghton, he also included an emotional and encouraging message to fans (the 13th most popular Instagram account, with over 118 Million followers).

Sang at church last night. God is pulling me through a hard season. Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But he is faithful to complete what he started. I also want to thank my wife for being such a huge support in my life through this season.. it says in the bible count it ALL JOY when you face trials of various kinds. Sounds insane considering when u face trials u feel terrible. But if we are grateful and worship god for what we do have in that season there is so much power in that… whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself THIS WONT LAST! Love you guys we in this together
In an interview with TMZ, Bieber described why he found this message to be so relevant and necessary for him to share:
“My whole message at church the other day was, there’s power in your weakness. So when you feel weak — there are so many people in this world who are struggling — there’s just power in that weakness. So, when you fight through that season you usually get to the other side, and it gets better,” he said.
