Are You Disappointed In Yourself? | Pastor Steven Furtick

some of you are so busy trying to
produce something that God never planted in your life come on that you don’t have
any peace and you don’t have any power because you keep trying to put out
pomegranates when God planted you to produce figs can I preach about this touch somebody gently and say do you
because the sad thing about it is when God planted you to be a fig tree when
you start trying to put out apples you rob the energy that you could have used
to produce figs trying to produce something that wasn’t in you I believe
the word of the Lord is coming to set somebody free today
but maybe you’ve been disappointed because you’ve been trying to produce
something that isn’t your destiny God never reaches for anything out of your
life that he didn’t put in the soil of your heart and your spirit comes out to
the question what’s in you what’s in you what’s in you and when you know what’s
in you you can deal with disappointment on a different level because you can
stop being mad about the fruit you didn’t grow if that wasn’t encoded into
the seed of your DNA to be able to do what God called you to do it’s all about
purpose I’m tell you a little secret this will help you how many of you are
married how many of you are married how many of you would like to be married how
many of you would like to be married and would like for anybody else who would
like to be married that fits the description of the type of person that
you would like to be married to to see your hand waving in the air come on get
it up let your pastor hook you up you might get a Starbucks out of this if
you’re not shy about it about ten years ago I stopped
apologizing for the things I’m not good at around the house first few years of
marriage it made me very insecure that I couldn’t use a tool kit box to a kid did
you see how bad this is this how bad it is and that used to embarrass me I’m not
embarrassed anymore because I might not be much with a Phillips head but give me
a microphone see if you put the right tools in my hand some of you are
disappointed in yourself because you’re trying to use tools that God did not
authorize you to use because you’re trying to build according to a purpose
that’s not even a part of your personality God doesn’t pick what he didn’t plant
and when he picked me for what he called me to do he picked me because of what he
planted in me and all I gotta do to fulfill my purpose is to produce what’s
already on the inside of me I’ll have to work
something up I’ll and to be someone I’m not
I don’t have to feel bad about what I can’t do that you can do
give me my tools give me my rocks give me my figs I’m a good fig tree stop wasting your potential in areas
that are not even related to your purpose stop trying to sing and you can’t carry
a tune you better be an usher you better work
in the children’s ministry you keep you keep trying to grow oranges and you’re
supposed to produce figs if you try to be an extrovert it’s awkward that’s not
in you you’ll always be disappointed when you try to pick something that God
didn’t plant say this out loud he picked me I said it for every mom
he picked you to raise those children he picked you he picked you he picked you
so I tell the Lord all the time when I start to do something that I’m
intimidated about if you would have needed somebody better you should have
picked somebody better and you never have peace and you’ll never prosper in
your mind or in your life if you continue to try to produce outside of
your purpose hey thank you for watching make sure you subscribe to this channel

  11. Wowwww I really needed this. I've been going through a season of uncertainty about my situation and this sermon was an answer to my prayers. Amen! God bless you and your family, keep doing what you're doing.

  16. I am upset at how I treated my fiancรฉ and she left I was not perfect but I loved her and want restoration I trust you lord and the desires you put in my heart Iโ€™m disappointed in how I didnโ€™t do my best

  17. I need it this message today. So glad god has led me to your channel. Iv been watching your services for 2 weeks now.

  18. I still donโ€™t know what God wants me to be or what my purpose is..but I believe he will give me his answer. I relate to this because I always put myself down when I canโ€™t do what others can and it makes me feel worthless. I really needed this โค๏ธ

  19. He picked me!! If He needed someone better he would have picked someone better. I needed this โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

  20. I did nothing but cry today and say how much of a failure I am for not being able to be the person my boss needs me to be and I needed me to be to make more sales and more income. I needed this. Normally I wouldnโ€™t click on these or even look at it but Iโ€™m glad I did. Hoping to catch Sundayโ€™s service. Thank you.

  21. But what is the line between faith for the impossible and this? How do we know if we should keep trying or be content and satisfied? So many questions ๐Ÿ˜ข

  22. Iโ€™m struggling in this season right now. idk what my purpose is. Idk how to discern what God put in me. Yeah I have goals to finish Bible college. I donโ€™t want to be at this job I have rn. i donโ€™t think itโ€™s for me. Been praying and looking for something else. I just feel lost in my life. Just being honest

  23. I have a big problem with my personality. I am never confident with myself and always feel that I am not enough. It is like I don't fit in anything. But I know that God loves me and receives me just that way I am.

  24. So the thing you find peace with – that's a big clue about what you are supposed to be doing?

    or is it the thing that the loudest voices are screaming? Who is trying to tell me what kind of tree I am? Can I not tell by what I produce? Because a fig actually won't make pomegranates.

  25. I felt this. I have people saying I donโ€™t know anything because I donโ€™t build things by swinging hammers or drilling holes. I know for a fact God didnโ€™t make me to do the crap people try to force on me. Even thinking about the idea stresses me out. I could never see myself as anything like that or anything along the lines on driving (trucks, etc) I hate driving I donโ€™t even like to drive myself. I hate being on the road dealing with reckless drivers. (Enough of that rant)

  26. I am the child of God by the grace.. Jesus he give his life to save our life.! I am choice generation…

  27. Never once mentioned the name of Jesus, never mentioned the Gospel or the Cross, just tickling ears, your being deceived folks, Paul told Timothy to preach the word, Look to Jesus and not man, Heโ€™s our only hope

  28. This is freeing, Pastor. I needed to hear this. I want to know whatโ€™s related to my purpose. I donโ€™t want to be a copy cat!!!
