Water Walking 101

Water Walking 101

2020-08-0954:4211

You may be going through a storm today, but God won’t let you go under. In “Water Walking 101,” Pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church turns to Matthew 14, where the disciple Peter walks on water to meet Jesus. It may be a familiar story, but God wants to reveal even more of His faithfulness through it. Are you ready for a water-walking type of faith?
Take The Lid Off A Little

Take The Lid Off A Little

2020-08-0352:2311

You may not feel like you have enough, but God can do a lot with a little. In “Take The Lid Off A Little,” Pastor Steven Furtick turns to the story of the prophet Elijah during a time of famine to show us how God isn’t limited by “not enough.” When what you have feels insufficient, God may be getting ready to reveal just how sufficient He is.
Unschedulable Blessings

Unschedulable Blessings

2020-07-2701:16:0521

Your blessing is still on schedule. In “Unschedulable Blessings,” Pastor Steven Furtick encourages us that just because God’s plans aren’t predictable it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t trust in them. Even if you feel behind, held back, or like you’re not where you wanted to be, you can have hope that God is working something better – it may just be on a different schedule.
Lonely Places

Lonely Places

2020-07-2058:0416

Feeling lonely? Isolated? What if this season of loneliness is an opportunity?  In “Lonely Places,” Pastor Steven Furtick shows us that, not only will God meet us in our isolation, but we may even find an opportunity in it.
We never know how God is going to move. In “I Didn’t See That Coming!” Pastor Dharius Daniels of Change Church teaches us that, if we want to be used by God, we need to be willing to be disrupted.
There’s a promise on the other side of your pain. There’s hope on the other side of your heartache. Whatever you’re going through, God is just getting started. In “Across The Threshold,” Pastor Jeremy Foster of Hope City helps us as we step away from the safety of provision and out into the promise of God. God has a plan for you, but that doesn’t mean the journey is always going to be easy.  Are you ready to move forward?
Hope isn’t always easy to hold on to — especially in overwhelming or difficult seasons. In “Hope Is In Our DNA,” Lisa Harper teaches on some of the most “hopeless” passages in the Bible — only to show that hope is often where we least expect it. From the Garden of Eden to King David to Jesus Himself, Lisa reveals how, just when you think nothing can change, God can change everything. And when things seem dark and we feel alone and we’re not sure how things are ever going to get better... He is there with restoration, redemption, and hope.
Plot Twist

Plot Twist

2020-06-2254:4028

Broken plans? Unmet expectations?  Get ready for a plot twist.In this sermon, Pastor Steven Furtick turns to John 4 to show us that, when we think we know how our story will end, God moves beyond what we could ask or imagine.He turned the ostracized woman at the well into a messenger to her people. He turned Joseph, the son sold into slavery, into the savior of countless lives. Out of Jacob’s mistakes, He produced the nation of Israel. He doesn’t meet our expectations; He exceeds them.
When the pressure is on and emotions are high, we each have a choice in how we respond. In “Living In The Tension,” Pastor Robert Madu teaches on the art of empathy and reveals the necessity of living in both grace and truth — regardless of circumstances. Pastor Robert addresses this challenge by taking a look at a scene in the Gospel of John. When a crowd of onlookers wanted to stone a woman, Jesus showed empathy, saw beyond her sin, and offered her grace. God knows what you’ve done, knows what you’re going through, and still has grace for you. You don’t have to live in shame. He came so you can live in freedom –– and offer it to others in turn.
Tired On The Inside

Tired On The Inside

2020-06-0701:04:3438

“I’m tired.” Have you said that lately? When you’re tired on the inside, it’s all too easy to feel drained, overwhelmed, and like nothing is going to change. In “Tired On The Inside,” Pastor Steven shares from the story of the woman at the well in John 4, showing us how powerful rest can be — if we’re looking for it in the right places.  But what if one of the reasons we’re tired all the time is because we’ve been going to the wrong well? What if we’ve been running to sources of stress instead of God’s source of rest? Being weary doesn’t mean we’re weak. Maybe it just means we’ve been “filling up” in the wrong places. Maybe we’re tired because we’ve been pushing against what God is trying to call us into. He said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Are you ready for true rest?
“We have to speak. We aren’t going to say everything perfectly, but in a season like this, silence is agreement.” Pastor Steven Furtick and Pastor John Gray sit down to have a conversation about race, privilege, apathy, and what it will take to become the bridge to a better future.  We hope this message inspires you to have your own conversations in your home and community. We each have a responsibility to stand up in the face of injustice –– and equality will never be attained through silence.
How could God ask us to have staying power in a place that feels hopeless? When what we really want to do is jump ship, it takes faith to stay. From a Bible story in Acts 27 verses 13-44, Pastor Steven Furtick preaches this sermon to our global online family of Elevation Church about the importance of having staying power in the storm. God promised us He would never leave us or forsake us, so rather than jumping to other things to try to alleviate our pain, we need to stay faithful to Him in seasons of struggle.  Pastor Steven talked about the power of praising God in the midst of the storm. Then, with a hopeful turn at the end of the message he alludes to the words of Jesus who on the day of pentecost told His disciples to, “stay in Jerusalem.” Pastor Steven explained as he brought the message to a powerful close that we need to stay in peace while we navigate our storms. It’s not what I go through that determines where I end up, it's who I listen to. We pray that as you listen to the voice of God through this sermon you will find staying power in the storm.
FLEX 💪 SPACE

FLEX 💪 SPACE

2020-05-2256:008

In this message, “Flex Space” preached by Pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC we learn how to expand our expectations to include things we didn’t plan for. Sometimes our minds and hearts get cluttered up with expectations of our own making. We wed ourselves to what was, often prohibiting it from being transformed. In Isaiah 54 verses 1 - 4, the prophet Isaiah commands the nation of Israel to sing a song of deliverance 200 years before that prophecy comes to pass. While Paul is writing the New Testament letter to the Philippians he connects those 200 year old dots and tells the people of God through a word he makes up (apokaradokia) they need to stretch their heads forward in hope because the best is yet to come. We pray that even though you may have had a lot taken from you in this season, this message will help you fight back with faith. The enemy may have taken a lot, but he can’t take your song.

Focus On The Fruit

Focus On The Fruit

2020-05-0401:19:1823

Whenever we go out in this season we’re reaching for our masks and gloves to protect ourselves from an invisible virus. Pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC is helping us keep our minds safe from fear, frustration, and even an unhealthy obsession with ”‘the facts.”’ He says, “We need medical masks for our minds,” so we can “Focus On The Fruit.” This message was built from two key Bible passages, Philippians 1:12-22 written by the Apostle Paul while he was in prison and Romans 8:18-28. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that is all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Even if we feel like we’ve been given a prison sentence in this season, we can choose to focus on the word of God, we can choose to turn graves Into gardens. When you watch this message, you’ll learn how to shift your mind to the only thing you really can control —, what you choose to focus on. You’re going to learn the power and significance of the phrase, “I don’t know.” Don’t focus on your frustrations, your fears or even the facts, in this season, we need to “Focus On The Fruit.” To support this ministry and help us continue to reach people all around the world click here: http://ele.vc/TI55jR
A Lesson In Letting Go

A Lesson In Letting Go

2020-04-2701:12:1851

A Lesson In Letting Go This message, “A Lesson In Letting Go,” by Pastor Steven Furtick, from Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC, is built on the same important perspectives as last week’s message “Looking Forward To Normal.” When all we’ve known is busy, rest feels like something to be resisted. When all we’ve known is bondage, blessings feel foreign. So Pastor Steven is teaching us how to say, “I’m not going back to normal, I’m looking forward to freedom,” as we all loosen our grip on the things we never had control over anyway. As we dive into Exodus 14 and Romans 12 we find the most important lesson in letting go comes from the inside out. God doesn’t want us to conform (outside in) any longer to the pattern of this world, but instead to be transformed (inside out) by the renewing of our minds. Embrace this “Lesson In Letting Go” so we can stop dwelling on what’s lost and watch Him bless what’s left. Don’t forget to share this message with a friend and be sure to subscribe for ongoing inspiration and encouragement.

Such a relevant message for the season we are living in. We will never get THROUGH something if we are always looking for reasons to quit out of it.
