Sermon Sunday

Waiting Room Trailer

Waiting Room Week Four
Hubs & Spokes, Holding Patterns and the Supernatural Date Line

This weekend, Pastor Steven Furtick preached an amazing message at Elevation Church on the times when God makes us wait.  Last week, he preached about the times when God is waiting on us.  He mentioned that he is not being biblically bi-polar.  There are times when God is waiting on us to move, and there are times when we have to wait on God.

- Often you have to go through the process to get to the place.
- ABC's of Waiting: A is fun and exciting. LMNOP can seem like HelLMNOP because you are waiting. Z is a sign of fulfillment.
- God doesn't put you in a holding pattern to punish but to protect.
- God calls what is happening today as it has already happened.

Love what you just read? Want to hear more? The entire message can be found for free at 12:00, 4:00 and 8:00 (AM & PM) here, or you can download the podcast for free later this week!
Pinned ImagePersonal Reflection: Geeze. Another sermon just for me.  This was my favorite sermon of the entire Waiting Room series.  My favorite point in this message was the second - Holding Patterns
I can't help but feel as if I am in a holding pattern right now.  I can see where God has called me to be, but I am in the air, not down there.  I have to learn how to patiently wait while I am in the LMNOP.  I have to take comfort in the fact that God is doing this to protect me.  He isn't trying to punish me for anything.

This point really stuck out out to me, because I have felt as if God was punishing me for taking matters into my own hands and being over zealous about a situation for a long time now.  He isn't trying to punish me.  He is protecting me.  I have to see it as protection.  He has promised it to me.  It will come.  I am in the holding pattern to grow and learn before the time is right.  I should be thankful for the protection!

Where are you?  Are you waiting on God? Is God waiting on you?
