Steven Furtick — Don't Miss Your Purpose
Let me ask you a question: what have you talked yourself out of that God is trying to bring you into? What are you talking yourself out of, right now, that God is trying to bring you into your relationships? What are you talking yourself out of that God is trying to bring you into your personal life? And I don't care what category you use, we've all got something that we we're talking ourselves out of. The message God gave me today is, that you can talk yourself into it, just like you've been talking yourself out of it.
You can talk yourself into it... one thing I noticed about myself from an early age, is that I can be persuasive when I need to be. And so, sometimes in school and I would need an extension on a paper, I knew I could usually get one, because I have this way of talking myself out of things. Do you understand it comes in handy as a preacher to be persuasive, because you have to get people to do things that they need to do, that they don't want to do. And so you're trying to tell people to trust God in their finances, in problem with that is they already feel broke, and so now that you tell them that they want to trust God with their finances, if they need to trust God with their finance. And they don't want to trust God with their finances, because they don't have many finances, but you want to get them to see, that the reason I don't have any finances, is because you're not trusting God with your finances. And if you trust God your finances, it would open your eyes to the supply that he has available for you. And if you seek Him first and His Kingdom and His righteousness, all these things I'm preaching in my watch off my wrist... That's how excited I am about the Word of God...
