Get Your Passion Back | Pastor Steven Furtick


and I felt like the Lord wanted somebody
today to get your passion back and he tells you how to do it
he doesn’t just challenge that you’ve lost your passion I mean I don’t know
your reaction to the scripture but I take it as parental guidance that God is
warning me if you lose your passion you’re gonna lose your place can I break
that down if you don’t love that woman now that you’re married to her the same
way and in increasing ways that you did when you dated her somebody else might
now that’s not a threat that’s just reality if I don’t want to preach with
passion you think God can’t raise up another preacher who’s smarter than me
no no no no no no no no I don’t operate out of the assumption that I’m
entitled to anything that God gave me I got to keep my passion how can you have
so much passion before you have the position how do you get it back
he said you’ve abandoned it you didn’t lose your passion you
left it you didn’t lose it you left it you abandoned your first
love you stopped doing the things look at it he said you’ve abandoned your
first love remember therefore from where you have fallen I love God because he
doesn’t say that we should regret where we are he says we should remember where
we were and get your eyes back to the hills where your help comes come on I’m
preaching with passion but I could use a little participation
I’m not staying where I am I want my passion back somebody shout I want it back I want it back I want
it back I don’t just want to look like a Christian I want a fire in my heart I don’t want to go through the motions here’s what you do remember from where
you have fallen remember from where you have fallen repent
let’s look at the scripture together repent and let’s read the next part
together and feel the feelings you felt at first well isn’t that how we treat
passion like it’s a sensation but yet when he challenges their passion he
calls them to action do the things you did at first it’s a decision not a
sensation sit down let me tell you something else do it do it do it do it how do I get it
back okay I’m gonna pray Lord I want my passion
back and it ain’t coming not like that you don’t pray to get it back you
practice do the things you did at first
I don’t feel grateful anymore be grateful I don’t feel excited anymore be
excited I don’t feel love anymore be loving do it do it do it
what’s it what you did at first do it practice can I show you something you got a
second is this word good I sure enjoyed preparing it I think I like cooking this
better than you could ever like eating it while I was preparing it watch this
Blakeney the Lord gave me an illustration of it you guys may
not know the names of these musicians I mentioned them already on the platform
one of our musicians here LJ he’s a little newer to the team but he’s
got passion and he’s not some young buck who always wanted to be on the stage
he’s done some things he’s uh he’s wasted some seasons and I didn’t
know about him I was looking for somebody in this particular position and
I wanted somebody who would have not just the technical skills or proficiency
to be back here but someone who would have the passion for it you know how I
knew he was the guy he said that when I send in my scriptures for them to put on
the screen he begs the people that get the email with the scriptures if he can
see them so he can figure out what I’m gonna preach on so he can start thinking
through what song he might start playing when I start closing see that’s passion
that’s passion and I brought him up because I love all of our team don’t
get me wrong you’re not my favorite or anything like that but just
uh something I heard that when he was he was living in Canada and which is known
for its passion love you Wayne Finch Stephen Finch God bless you guys but he
was going through a season and I’m not gonna tell all of his
details maybe you can ask him one day but he would sit when his
wife would go to bed at night he would put on his headphones and he would
practice playing with preachers online now he didn’t have a position but he had a
what a what a passion and he would put his headphones on so as not to disturb his
wife’s sleep I assume and I’m sure she appreciated that and he would play along
with the preaching I heard that there was a season where you would play along
with me online and I didn’t know who he was never heard of him never heard never
even heard his name they didn’t even call David’s name when he was out in the
field tending sheep come on I’m about to preach right section out I sure could use
your passion I sure could use it and see he didn’t have a position but
when you have a passion you practice you don’t wait for a position you don’t do it
because somebody’s watching you don’t do it cause it’s a performance you do it
cause it’s a passion and he didn’t know he was just killing lions he didn’t know
he was just killing bears but when Goliath came stepping forward to the
battle line he had been practicing and now he’s back there and I’m up here because he had a
passion passion will bring you from the pasture to the palace passion will bring you from
the lowest to the highest repent and get your passion back
come on take 15 seconds and praise Him passionately passionately passionately passionately come on Rock Hill come on Lake Norman come on UC get your passion back God’s not dead He’s not done with you get your passion back in place David said oh yeah I’ve been practicing
for this I’ve been waiting for an opportunity I’ve been waiting for a
giant see I can preach any way I want to preach I’ve been practicing you gotta practice your passion
practice I was riding home with Elijah just on Friday and we were filling up
the little gas cans with gas to put gas in the four-wheeler very spiritual
activity and we filled them up and put them in Holly’s suburban and I said
Elijah we gotta put them just right cuz if the gas sloshes around the back of
the car your mom isn’t going to be happy about our outing and he said dad I’m
worried cuz all the way here they were sliding around in the back
but I said don’t worry boy they might have been sliding on the way but they
were empty now that they’re full they’re not going anywhere
I started preaching to Elijah while I’m driving I’m
practicing preaching is not just my profession it’s my passion if you got
passion you aught to preach in the car you aught to preach in the kitchen you aught to worship God Monday Tuesday it’s my passion my passion I practice my passion I
practice my passion practice practice practice practice practice practice find
seven people tell them practice practice practice practice practice practice you
never know you never know what God might wanna do through you you gotta practice you
gotta practice well I would pray but I just don’t feel anything when I pray you
hadn’t practiced enough if you would pray two minutes you would see the peace
that two minutes brings and tomorrow you’d want to pray five if you practice if
you’d open your Bible and read a verse you’d want to read two you might read four
you might read eight you might finish the book of Galatians before the week is
over if you would practice practice I’m practicing so if you ever see me in the
grocery store and I’m mumbling I’m not crazy
I’m practicing I’m practicing I’m practicing I’m practicing what are you
doing throwing that stick on the ground Moses I’m practicing cause I gotta use
this stick to part the waters but until I practice I can’t perform it and you’ve
lost your passion because you stopped practicing hey thank you for watching make sure you

  26. Beautiful stage setting! It gives an atmosphere of the ancient <3 and pastor, you fit perfectly in it! Thank you for your message

  27. Iโ€™m divorcing officially soon in a week time . I do not wish to dwell on sadness and disappointment. My husband has no more passion in me but said to me that he regretted meeting me and me being his wife . I have four kids .
    I leave it all to GODโ€™s hand . Pray for my marriage and may GOD work in his heart as HE did in mine . May both of us move on with our lives in GODโ€™s guidance .

  28. Last Week I was sooooo on fire and my spirit was really strong but then something happened, sin came and it caused me to fall so low that I thought God has abandoned me. So I decided to pray and asked him to fogive my sins and give me the spiritual strength I had before… but nothing happened. So I started seeking for answers and landed on this video. And I saw the verse saying: "Consider how far you have fallen!"๐Ÿ˜ญ

    So I prayed again and told him " Lord I have fallen so so low from you I'm sorry please give me the strength I had before and grab hold of my hand cause I won't let go and please don't let go as well. I love you Lord and I thank you. Amen"

    Guessed what happened after that๐Ÿ˜‰ —> ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

  30. Hallelujah hallelujah my God this is amazing now I know you truly do hear me when Iโ€™m speaking ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

  32. โ˜€๏ธThanks for the encouragement Elevation ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿฅฆ #BroccoliPL

  33. This message was the push that I needed from the Lord to get over my physical pain and circumstances and decided to serve the Lord with all the gifts He has given me. It doesn't matter how sick I am. I started preaching again. Serving playing the guitar again. Leading the young and teaching at church again and it has been the most enriching months of my life. The privilege of serving him had fulfilled my soul so much. My circumstances haven't change. I am still sick. However while I serve the Lord I refuge myself in His holy presence where no pain has any place. This is only temporary. He is coming soon. In His presence I can feel only his power, love and peace! Praise the Lord because He is good and his mercy endures forever!!๐Ÿค—

  34. Mr furtick I don't know if u read these comments. But please pray for my friend Nigel. He gets these headaches so bad that he blackout when he gets them.

Please pray for him for God to heal him please.
