Steven Furtick shared a message for people who are walking through the wilderness.
The pastor and writer recently shared a message for anyone who is experiencing a wilderness season. He told the congregation that God works in your times of weakness. He also emphasized that God is taking you through a process to teach you important lessons.
“God works in your weakness, God works in your waiting. It’s not the promise, it’s not the past, it’s the wilderness… I need to be taught through a process… He’s a deliberator. He brings me into spaces, He brings me into challenges, He brings me into dilemmas to set me free from my flesh.”
God wants us to think like Him.
“Isn’t this what God is always teaching me? How to think like He thinks about what I’m going through, how to think like He thinks about what is best for me? One of my favorite Scriptures says, ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, says the Lord.'”
Have confidence in God
No matter where God takes us and no matter what God is teaching us, let us have confidence that He has in mind what is best for us.
“To have confidence in God’s promises but not commitment to His process is delusional. If I have confidence in God’s promises but don’t have a commitment to His process, that is not depending on God. That’s called denial because we just want to believe over top of all our behaviors that don’t line up with the Word of God.
