The Sticking Point

This week was another great message from Pastor Steven Furtick! My notes are below but I will also include the link to the message below.

The worship playlist for this week included “My Testimony”, Bethel Music’s “Raise a Hallelujah“, Elevation Worship’s new song “Graves into Gardens”, and “See a Victory“.


My notes are as follows:

  • If God wants all the glory, then let Him fight the battle.
  • As we give God the glory it takes the weight off of us.
  • Let’s give more weight to the character and promises of God than we give to our issues and insecurities.
  • The sticking point: When your mood doesn’t match your mission but you have to push through anyway.
  • Many times we are stuck not in our situation but in our state of mind.
  • Exodus 14:10-16
  • God will take care of you because you’re His.
  • When you get stuck, that means you’re on the verge of something significant; God has His hand on your life.
  • Where God guides, Pharaoh follows.  The proof of God’s increase in your life will often be resistance.
  • When you get stuck, you get stupid.  Sometimes the dumb decisions you make are because you’re sick of being stuck.
  • Sometimes “stuck” is a state of mind; sometimes we get stuck in what we thought was supposed to happen in our lives.
  • You don’t get stuck in anything shallow; if you feel stuck, that means you’re in the deep stuff.
  • Exodus 4:1-2 ESV
  • Until you surrender it, you will never see what it could be.
  • Sometimes you have to release what God has given you so He can show you what it can become.
  • Is God calling you to reach for what you’ve been running from?
  • You have to learn that what God gave you is enough.
  • Everything that you love will have a part that you don’t like.

The link to the message, as promised:
