POWER OF THE PULL // #WorkYourWindow // @stevenfurtick
1 John 4: 13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.
II Kings 13:17-19 // 17 “Open the east window,” he said, and he opened it. “Shoot!” Elisha said, and he shot. “The Lord’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram!” Elisha declared. “You will completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek.” 18 Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and the king took them. Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. 19 The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times.” Are you ONLY motivated in your faith? Motivation of worship, church on Sunday, and someone else's faith can only push you so far.
PAIN DRAWS YOU BACK TO HIM - God allows pain in your life to PULL you back to Him.
What the enemy brought into your life to tear you down -- GOD is using it for your good. // gen. 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done
PATTERNS // Our hearts are OUT OF ALIGNMENT -- It's the patterns of our hearts that create the PULL
II cor. 10:4 // The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
