What To Do When

God doesn’t work on our schedules. We think we know when we need something, how we should receive it, or even what we should be doing with it. But what happens when we try to do things our way only to find ourselves in some deep troubled waters?

Your life may be spiraling out of control right now. Your health may be deteriorating. Your friends and family might have left and you feel all alone. Your co-workers and boss might be mistreating you. You may not be able to pay the bills. So what are you to do?

I know it sounds crazy but it all means that you are in a prime position for a mighty move of God in your life. When everything is going wild, crazy and simply don’t make sense in your life, then you have two choices (1) try to do things your way or (2) Stop, drop and wait upon the Lord.

No matter what the circumstance looks like, your best option is number 2. You’ve already tried doing things your way and it’s not working. You’ve tried praying about them or trying to run away from the very things God is using to change your life. He doesn’t want to just fix the problem, He wants to fix you inside out.

Think about it this way…if God just fixed every problem, would you need any faith to believe? If God just handed you a million dollars, would you really know how to use it correctly or would you end up being in worse shape when the million dollars slipped through your hands?

God’s ways are much higher than ours. He wants us whole and complete. Sometimes the only way He can truly fix us is by having us go through some deep, dark troubles. It brings us back to Him. It makes us stand on faith and seek Him in deeper ways. It takes all the crude out of us and places the beauty of the Lord within.

So if you are going through some tough times right now make sure to stop, drop and wait upon the Lord. Let Him do a complete and finished work in your life. It may be tough and painful but when you come out on the other side, you will have the tools you need to accomplish the amazing future He has in store for you.

God loves you too much and your purpose in life is too valuable to not have you prepared. Whatever you do, don’t despise the troubles. Seek Him to reveal the reason behind the difficult season. Ask Him what needs to change within you in order to walk into the VICTORY He has for you. Be primed, willing and able to walk into your mighty purpose. God knows exactly when to bring it, how to bring it, and He will be right on time.

What You Need To Know About God

Who is God? What is His Character like? Why should we care? Why do we have to go through these things?

Sometimes, you have to go back to the revelation of who God is before you can move forward. God is very tactical about this and He will create a situation for a revelation. What do I mean?

First…let’s determine what the Bible says about God.

For verifiable Biblical Scriptures regarding the above statements click here

Now that we’ve established who God is and what He’s like, it’s important for us to know that everything that happens in our lives has a reason and purpose. The things you went through had to happen. You had to survive! You had to make it! You had to believe you’re more than a conqueror through Christ! You had to hold onto I’m healed by His stripes, I am the head and not the tail, I am above and not below. You had to hold on when no one else would! You had to believe when all others were walking away from you.

Don’t listen to the naysayers that surround you. Don’t lean on people who can’t believe or trust in where God is taking you. Through it all, God was and is determined to prove His power and presence in your life.

Get off the “Why?” land. You don’t need a reason! Instead let God give you a revelation. He will open whatever doors that are needed for you to flourish into your destiny. And when all things happen in God’s perfect timing, those naysayers will start asking questions giving you an amazing opportunity of sharing God’s love through your own personal testimony. It will be a glorious day when you save souls through the goodness God showed you through it all! He can and will make your restoration come forth! Don’t give up. Keep pushing forward till you see His Victory in your life!

Watch Pastor Steven Furtick bring this incredible teaching to life. It will change the way you see things!

Your Perspective Is Everything

When life throws you a curve ball, your perspective in the midst of the storm will be considerably different from when you obtain your victory afterwards.

Here’s a great quick clip of Pastor Steven Furtick’s take on the matter. It is a great reminder to help us see God’s perspective through the storm and realize there is something bigger coming on the other side of it.

We Salute You

John 15:13: “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”

Psalm 82:3-4: “Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

To all of those who have served or currently serving…Your sacrifices are remembered and we appreciate all that you do (day in and day out). You never look for accolades or a pat on the back. You chose to serve with dedication, dignity, and honor. You are true heroes and we thank God for each of you!

To the families of brave soldiers…Your sacrifices are also remembered on this day. Not just for your loved ones, but for your unspoken sacrifices of supporting your family member, keeping the household moving forward while your soldier is away on tour, the losses you may have encountered along the way, and for standing strong with our returning heroes who may be a wounded warrior or dealing with PTSD.

Freedom is not free and many unspoken sacrifices had to be given in order for us to enjoy the freedoms we have in this country. To all the fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, husbands and wives…We proudly salute you all, express our deepest gratitude, and ask God to fill you with peace beyond comprehension, healing that has no bounds, and love so you know you’re never alone.

God’s Blessings

Isn’t it amazing how quickly we can forget the incredible blessings that that God has given us? Once we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, we tend to struggle very heavily in our minds. Being bombarded by negative thoughts and doubts; leading us into stress and worry. We think it sounds great in the Bible yet we doubt that it could happen in our lives today. However, God is not a respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34)

Every single day, we need to remind ourselves that if God said it…then, it will be done. There are no “ifs or buts” about it. No matter what we are facing, God gave us the answer. All we need to do is begin believing that whatever He did in the Bible, He can and will do for us in our lives today!

Let’s take a closer look at what God has to say…

God's Benefits

So, when you are feeling down and nothing seems to be going right…REMEMBER, His precious gifts!

What do you need today?

  • You need healing, it’s yours.
  • You need Divine protection, it’s yours.
  • You need favor, it’s yours.
  • You need a miracle, it’s yours.
  • You need forgiveness, it’s yours.

God loves us more than we could ever imagine and He wants us to live a REWARDING and SUCCESSFUL life.

Simply ASK – TRUST – and BELIEVE! God will provide anything you need! Now, it may not happen when you want it to or in the way you would like. However, God will provide in His perfect timing and in His perfect way! So take the limitations off God and let Him be your source in every area of your life. Stand firm, keep believing, and it will be done. We serve a very BIG GOD and He will not disappoint you!
