Pastor Steven Furtick : It’s Always Been In You

  • Genesis 34:30; 35:11
  • What you do with what is in you is up to you. 
  • You’ll be surprised what you’ll trade when you’re tired. 
  • Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now. 
  • Jacob’s real struggle was never with his brother. 
  • Often you get to a place you’ve imagined, then disaster strikes and threatens to destroy it. 
  • Jacob is where God was leading him, but he’s not safe anymore. 
  • How often do you feel not “adultish”? 🙋‍♀️
  • Or have you had to deal with the consequences of someone else’s decision?
  • Genesis 35:1-11
  • God can bring you back to Bethel to remind you of your accomplishments. 
  • When Jacob is in need of his greatest faith, God took him back to the place of his greatest fear. 
  • You’ve got a lot on you – some of it is your fault, some is the fault of Tibet’s and none of it is anything you’ve been through before. 
  • God will remind you that you made it anyways. 
  • Remember a time that you thought you wouldn’t make it another day. 
  • You did make it!
  • What’s on you can cause you to forget what’s in you. 
  • We have a Jesus covenant. 
  • What are you depending on that isn’t God?
  • Offense and bitterness can keep you from remembering what’s in you. 
  • But it’s always been in you. 
  • The fight you have to win is the one versus yourself. 
  • You will never produce your nation if you don’t know your name. 
  • Is your covenant with your struggle greater than your covenant with God?
  • God knows what’s on you.
