Code Orange Revival Close Out

Code Orange Revival came to a close a few minutes ago.  I can't believe it is over.  My roommate and I just keep looking at each other and saying, what do we do now?  What will we do tomorrow night?  It has been an amazing twelve days to get into God's word, hear it preached and praise Jesus every night.  The last twelve days will be twelve days that I never forget.

Night Six - Israel Houghton

He led the church in a powerful time of worship.  The one noteworthy thing that he said was

The atmosphere of expectation is the breeding ground for miracles.  

Night Seven - Pastor Perry Noble

Pastor Perry and Newspring Church are Elevation's cousins.  It is always great to have Pastor Perry at Elevation.  Pastor Perry preached from Matthew 13:16-17 on a message about being blessed to be a part of Elevation.

- We are blessed because of what we have seen.
- We are blessed because of what we have heard.
- We are blessed because of where we are.

If you are breathing, He still has a plan and a purpose for your life.

An elevator has the potential to go to the top floor. What kind of elevator are you?

Night Eight - Pastor Stovall Weems

I attended with my eGroup.  I can't even begin to tell you what it was like to worship with three of my eGroup girls beside me.  To look over and see them with their hands raised in worship, or to see them typing as fast as they could on their iTouches.  It was powerful!

Pastor Stovall preached on Moving Forward in the Presence of the Lord - Lay Hold Moments.  He preached from Genesis 8:6-11 where Noah sent the raven and the dove out. 

The raven represents our flesh and sin.  The dove represents the Spirit. 

The dove wouldn't settle.  Noah had to reach forward. 

When you create space, your want because a way. 

We can create space, but we also have to lay hold.  In Genesis 28, Jacob makes space.  In Genesis 34, he lays hold.

Turn emotion into devotion.
