What To Do In A Valley | Elevation Church | Pastor Jabin Chavez


greetings from Las Vegas anyone been to
Vegas can I see your hands Wow couple more hands than I was expecting
okay well if you’re ever in Vegas come say hi to us at City Light Church and if
you uh if you had a really good night on Saturday night bring a little offering
with you amen praise the Lord if you had a really bad night we’ll lay
hands on you and cast the devil out of you and send you back home
holy and healthy and delivered but we were very grateful to be here and my
wife sends her love as she’s holding it down for us today back home and I want
to go straight to God’s Word this is a Ezekiel 37 I’m going to read out of the
message translation so you may just want to follow along in the screen I’m gonna
read about 10 verses to you and then we’re just gonna I’m a preach quick and
we’re gonna sing that song again amen and then I’m gonna eat fried chicken cause
I’m in the south and that’s the true story that’s really gonna happen Ezekiel
37 verse 1 God grabbed me and God’s Spirit took me up and he sat me down in
the middle of an open plain covered in bones he led me around and among them a
lot of bones there were bones all over the plain dry bones bleached by the Sun
and he said to me son of man can these bones live I said master God only you
know that and he said prophesy over the bones speak to the bones dry bones
listen to the message of God God the master told the dry bones watch this I’m
bringing the breath of life to you you’ll come to life I’ll attach sinews
to you I’ll put meat on your bones I’ll cover you with skin I’ll breathe life
into you you’ll come alive and you’ll realize that I’m God so I prophesied
just as I’d been commanded and as I prophesied there was a sound oh a
wrestling the bones moved together and boned a bone I kept watching sinews form
and then muscles on the bones and then skin stretched over them but they had no
breath in them so he said prophesy to the breath
prophesy Son of Man tell the breath God the master says come from
the four winds come breath breathe on these slain bodies breathe life so I
prophesied as he commanded me and the breath entered them they came alive and
they stood up on their feet they huge army I want to preach this for a couple of
moments this morning from the subject what to do in a valley what to do in a
valley father thank you for your word thank you for this moment and I do thank
you for your word it is living it’s active it’s supernatural it holds the
power of life and death and I thank you Lord that one word from God can change
our entire life so we’re praying today that you would speak to us we’re
listening we’re expecting I’m praying for a tailor-made work today the right
word for every person in every season in the room go beyond my voice be the wheel
within the wheel and say what you need to say to every one of us so that we
could all leave Church today saying I heard from God and I’ll never be the
same this is our prayer in Jesus name and everyone said amen and if you are
believing God for a word let’s clap our hands some more time let’s let the Lord
know we’re ready I’m ready what to do in a valley I guess I need to start by
telling you I wish I could preach how to have a valley free life
yo that would be bomb I hear seven steps do these things
no more valleys wouldn’t that be great no more valleys what a great book I’m a
write a book no more valleys wouldn’t that be great
going through a valley hey man you seen how more faith you see and believe God
don’t have to go through that but I’ve come to learn that he is the God of the
mountain but he is the God of the valley I’ve learned that valleys are necessary
and I’ve learned that God does a great work in me that he can only do in the
valley I want to remind someone today that there is no fruit on the
mountaintop there’s only fruit in the valley I’ve learned that God wants to do
something great through me so he must first do something very deep in me and
he can only do that in the valley the valley is the stretching place the
valley is the place that when you’re in it you think it’s warfare if you’re
Pentecostal like me you plead the blood you speak in tongues you cast out devils
you anoint with oil you get your intercessors to lay hands on you you
start sending offering the TV preachers come on somebody because you think I’m
under attack only to find out on the other side of it it was not a demonic
spirit but the Holy Spirit that led you into the wilderness let you into the
desert led you into the valley to do something in you that could not happen
outside of the valley so I’ve learned to love the valley the valley is the gym of
the Holy Spirit now I’ve never been to a gym but I heard chunks told me Pastor Steven
told me the gyms good for me I heard it’s good for me I’m gonna try it out
one day I’m 36 it ain’t looking too good but it’s it’s that place that it
hurts when you’re in it but it’s actually good for you and when you come
out of it you go thank you Jesus for the valley I want to remind someone you’re
not gonna die in the valley cause though you go through the valley of the shadow of
death you don’t have to fear any evil because his rod and his staff they do
come for you goodness and mercy are following you you’re coming out of the
valley and you’re gonna come out with everything God has for you in the valley
but I haven’t learned that there’s some things you have to do when you’re in it
so that it actually does make you better and bigger and stronger and doesn’t
destroy you and I think there’s some things from the text today that we can
find that will help you and they’ve helped me and I believe that that God’s
really gonna speak to you today so let me just give you a few things today if
you’re taking notes write these down if you’re not taking notes write these down I’m embarrassed that I did that but I’m
a dad and a senior pastor so that was like a bad senior pastor dad joke but
I’m okay with it like I’m I’m doing me okay number one number one never forget
this God is with you in the valley God is with you in the valley
Ezekiel starts the text by saying God grabbed me in the valley now I do
appreciate and love the the poetic King James that says that the hand of the
Lord was upon me but I kind of like that gritty rated-r version the message that
said God grabbed me and I think if you serve God long enough you know there
are just times where God has to grab you yeah yeah am I preaching to anybody there’s
times where you let go of God but thank you Jesus he didn’t let go of me theirs
there’s times I’ve run from God but he’s run after me theirs times I’ve tried to
hide from God but he is awesome at hide and seek he just has a way of finding me
I want to tell someone today you feel like
in a valley you feel like you’re all alone you feel like there are bones
everywhere you feel like there dry bones bleached by the Sun but I want to remind
you God’s with you the hand of the Lord is upon you and he is not letting go and
God is doing something in you in the valley don’t let the valley lie to you
and tell you you’re alone don’t let circumstances intimidate you and tell
you it’s over I will take a Valley with Jesus over a mountaintop without him
because as long as I have Jesus I have possibilities I have a future I have a
promise give me Jesus in any situation I’ll take that God’s with you in the
valley and you may not feel it you may not be able to clap for that yeah you
may you may be saying amen but in your heart you’re going I don’t feel it
that’s okay we don’t live by feelings and when I cannot trace his hand I can
trust his heart God’s doing something in me right now I don’t see it all yet but
I do know I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living I do know
God is doing something great right now and I I can’t really sense it I can’t
really see it I can’t really feel it quite frankly it took every ounce of
faith just to get here this morning but I do believe that God is still doing a
work in my life and maybe you feel today like Jabin and I just feel like all of
hell is against me I just feel like I am coming up literally against the gates of
hell that’s actually good because Jesus said the gates of hell
won’t prevail against the church and and you is the church and that means that if
you’re coming up against hell that is the devil’s last defense to try to stop
you before you inherit everything God has for you so you might as well just
clap your hands and shout and thank God in advance that you are about to cross
over into something good come on God has good days for you God has good things
for you and while he’s doing a good work in me I will not quit God’s with you in
the valley number two number two look look look look for the possibility look
for the possibility hey Ezekiel okay I get it I get it I get it bones
everywhere yeah first one verse two bones everywhere tribe bones bleached by
the Sun bones bones bones bones it’s for all my 90’s children right there bones I
get it but Ezekiel can can they live I’m remembering pastor’s message from two
weeks ago I caught a thought cause cause eight jokers walked into that promise
land and said there’s Giants and the lands gonna eat us up
and two other guys Caleb and Joshua said we’re well able same circumstance same
enemy same bones same valley same situation same promise eight guys
couldn’t believe it two guys could believe it I’m not making light of your
situation I’m just telling you God is greater than your situation I’m not
making light of your giants I’m just telling you God’s bigger than your
giants I’m not making light of your valley and the bones that are
surrounding you I’m just telling you I’m begging you today to look for the
possibility I’m begging you today to forget about all the stuff that’s going
wrong and for one moment gaze your eyes on Jesus look at him focus on him look
at this from his perspective Ezekiel said I was standing in a valley but then
God set me down and he said look at it from my perspective there’s something
about seeing it from where God sees it there’s something about God’s
perspective there’s there’s something about saying I’m not in denial of my
situation but I choose to see this through the lens of faith and not the
lens of doubt I refuse to just keep talking about it and I’m going to see
this from God’s possibility look for the possibility and y’all we all have this
this natural bent towards doubt don’t we all right no one said amen at Ballantyne
but I know y’all shout me down in the other campuses I know it you’re driving
down the road tire blows out you’re like man the devil’s after my tires I just
know know you’re cheap you were supposed to
change retire six months ago and you then hold it out air conditioner breaks
in your house I’ll be in the devils after AC no no I don’t think so I think
you’re good I think life is life it’s amazing when it’s raining outside you’re
like oh my gosh my arthritis I just know it’s gonna be but when it’s sunny
outside you’re like oh man were in a drought God’s judging
America you know it’s always something it’s like don’t don’t choose to see
everything through through a negative lens just to see the possibility today
choose to say man I’m going through a lot but at least I made it to church at
least I got to praise God with some brothers and sisters at least I’m still
hearing the word of the Lord I think God still has a future for me I refuse to
die in my doubt I’m gonna believe God look look for the possibility to Ezekiel
it was hopeless but to God the situation was perfect for a miracle look for the
possibility in Nehemiah 13:2 Nehemiah said our God can turn a curse into a
blessing can I just tell you God can turn it around can I tell you life can
get better but while you’re waiting on life to get better you can get better
yeah and while you’re waiting on things to turn around in your life things you
can turn around in your heart and you don’t have to be a victim to
circumstance look for the possibility number three I have to admit this is my
favorite point take a step into the unknown touch your neighbor tell them
take a step take a step that neighbor was so stuck-up touch
somebody else they could tell them take a step take a step take a step take a
step take a step they were rude to you did you feel that they were rude there’s
still little hungover from last night they’re like what what take a step
um hey Ezekiel can these bones live Lord uh you know that was a really kind and
sweet and really southern way of saying I don’t know your God why you asking me God
is never asking us questions because he doesn’t know the answer he knows he’s
God he’s trying to give us a revelation he’s trying to level up our faith he’s
trying to build us up and he’s not asking a question because he doesn’t
know the answer he’s asking us a question because he wants to reveal
something to us Ezekiel can these bones live and Ezekiel says Lord you know
yeah yeah God will take a yes with a question mark yeah and the higher
pitcher voices the less faith you have can these bones live y’all ever squeaked
thank God for this loud music huh cause sometimes all you can get out is a God’s
okay with a squeak God’s okay I think he appreciates the yes with a exclamation
mark I think those come I think they’re awesome but I think a lot of life is in
the yeah I love that Ezekiel did not say of course they can live I know who my
God is and I’m persuaded by the promises of God hallelujah
I honestly I’m glad he didn’t do that cause if he would have done that I would of
just get the 38 and been like I don’t get you Ezekiel cause cause a lot of life is
in the Lord maybe I think and I think that depending upon where you’re at in
your season there something’s God will ask you and it’s like yes can I bless
your business yes 2020 God be good yes already got 20/20 vision yeah yes can
I help your marriage Lord do you know the woman you gave me
in the garden do you know her husband’s look straight ahead don’t you dare touch
your wife right now in Jesus name I’m trying to save your marriage somebody stood in
the 9:30 I said sir please sit down security security okay trying to protect
you it’s called security on his wife amen
cause she wasn’t laughing I think you actually have to get comfortable giving
God a yes with a question mark I want to say it like this you have to get
comfortable giving God you’re not enough yeah you you have to get okay with
giving God less than you want to give him but giving him all you got because
I think a lot of you’re waiting to do something for God when you have great
faith but you don’t get great faith till you give God small faith you don’t have
awesome faith until you give God broken faith until you give God whatever faith
you do have and I know you want to feed 5,000 with 5,000 pieces of bread and
fish but sometimes all you got is a couple of loaves in a couple of fish and
you actually have to learn how to give God you’re not enough you have to learn
how to give him whatever you do have because God can use your not enough he
can bless it he can break it he can multiply it and he can turn it into more
than enough and a lot of y’all are waiting on more than enough but God says
I don’t just start with more than enough I start with not enough oh can I get
some faith in here and a lot of you are not gonna do anything for God until you
get comfortable giving him your not enough but God can do a lot with a
little and God forbid by the way by the way
God forbid you ever feel like you’re enough like if you feel like you’re
ready your pride is too high and your vision
is too small I always want to be shaking in my boots I always want to be a little
like I woke up this morning scared y’all scared don’t let this smile fool you I’m crying
on the inside amen pastors like can you preach I’m like I used to know how to
preach I think I forgot I don’t know I’m not ready I don’t think I’m the guy for
you I like that I like I like feeling a little unqualified ooh that’s a good
book title I’m a write me a book called unqualified watch it I like that because
it means I have to rely on Jesus I have to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit
I I need grace in my weakness and a lot of you are waiting to be ready before
you do something but you actually have to learn how to take a step on a Lord
you know faith is risky faith is gutsy faith is grown people talk faith faith
requires a backbone not a wishbone faith faith puts you in scary situations
by the way by the way you’re in a faith church I don’t know if you know that
your your pastors gift is he has the gift of faith the biblical gift of faith
it’s in the Bible he has it and and so anytime you get around pastor you want
to believe more but never forget this your flesh your earth suit your carnal
mind your dirt suit it hates faith that’s why it wants to comfort clothes
and a comfortable chair and a comfortable bed comfort food because we
want our flesh wants comfort but our spirit is begging for adventure our
flesh wants to stay in the boat but our spirit saying call me out on the water
and you actually have to learn how to give your spirit first place cause
your flesh will always go to the comfort zone and God can’t do anything great in
the comfort zone I’ve heard it said by preachers that faith and fear cannot
coexist and I thought I think they’re married I think they’re sleeping in the
same bed the very fact that I need faith is because I’m afraid the very fact that
I’m believing God is because this is too big for me the very the very fact
that I’m believing for a miracle is because I need a miracle the very fact
that I that I that I’m stepping out in faith is because I I have I have fear in
my life a lot of you have mistaken faith in facts faith is not always factual but
it’s always truth huh and you have to learn how to break past the circumstance
in the facts and break into the faith zone where God is and where your destiny
is am I helping anybody right now come on say amen clap your hands one time I’m
gonna keep preaching but you have to learn how to take a step into the
unknown did God call you to start that business I think he did in January but now it’s
October Jabin did God call you to plant that church in Vegas well some Sundays for
sure other Sunday nights I will kind of want to sell cars like God call you to
move to Charlotte I thought so I think I was a lot more confident a few months
ago yeah you actually have to get okay their faith is a total assurance in who
God is but the life is changing y’all and you have to get okay with that I’ve
learned that faith is like a pit in my stomach
yeah yeah you know you know the pit in your stomach the thing that you call the
lack of peace yeah you know I didn’t just don’t and
you know you’re charismatic if you touched your stomach you know it doesn’t
have a piece about I was praying about it I know you guys need people to serve
but like right now like the Lord has me resting it’s funny cause it’s true and and and
and we’re running from the pit in our stomach but I actually think it’s where
faith really is a peace by the way it’s not a feeling in your stomach can I help
you feed the peace not that peace is a person is named as Jesus and peace will
be right in the middle of a storm on the waves and he will call you to come peace
will lead you into some crazy situations that are way bigger than you but there
under his feet that’s where peace is peace will lead
you into some unpeaceful places to build you up that’s peace I’ve honestly for
last 20 months we planted our church 20 months ago I’ve had a pit in my stomach for 20
months like I used to live in Newport Beach California no one could even cheer
cause y’all just mad about it right because this is Newport it’s beautiful
Newport is like um have like the Garden of Eden before the fall
y’all know what I’m saying like it’s good we used to wake up the same way
every morning our alarm would go off wake up ah birds start chirping what
like birds don’t chirp in Vegas it’s a hundred and fifteen degrees they can’t
open their mouth or they will die they’ll explode you know they don’t chirp
we don’t I don’t even see a bird I know they’re there somewhere and haven’t seen
one birds would be chirping you wake up look at your wife hey babe what do you want
to do today want to go to the ocean and pray yeah then let’s go to Disneyland and
witness to Mickey and like it’s Orange County
let’s float there yeah let’s just float and then we move to Vegas we’re trying
to pastor this church trying to help people it’s scary like I don’t need
an alarm clock anymore I wake up the same way every day 5 a.m.
same way every day just like this in a pool of sweat my wife will roll over you
okay yeah yeah just thinking about Sunday I got to preach another message
got to write another one another one this another one okay we’ll wake up some
mornings and my wife will go hey babe you were screaming again in your sleep haha was I
just thinking about that new building I like that thing you know what that pit does
it keeps me right on my knees that pit keeps me on my face that that pit keeps
me in the word that that pit in my stomach keeps me humble that pit in my
stomach keeps me praising God clapping shouting cheering saying thank you Jesus
that pit in my stomach keeps me praying in English and tongues have that that
pit in my stomach keeps me hungry for God and keeps me in community and a lot
of y’all are running from that pit but actually what God has for you is right
there because by the way God is not gonna give you a life where he is
unnecessary and y’all trying to follow God from the
comfort zone you got to learn how to take a step into the unknown believing
God taking a risk taking a step trying it out moving on a maybe 1 Samuel 14:6
Jonathan goes to his friend and he goes hey there’s an enemy around the ridge
let’s go pick a fight maybe Jonathan was hood rat y’all know what I’m saying let’s go
pick a fight like got nothing else to do today let’s go pick a fight maybe the
Lord will give us the victory maybe not have been on a forty day fast angel Lord
talk to me we have the victory in Jesus name no no maybe and on a maybe
Jonathan’s assistances says turn down for what let’s go on a maybe on a maybe you
actually have to get comfortable with a maybe I call it a Holy Ghost maybe I
call it a Holy Spirit hunch I call it a book of Acts the Apostles pray and they
go it seems good to us and the Holy Spirit that word seems is feels like
you feels good like we don’t really have a yes or a no it just seems good and a
lot of life is right there it’s like I think I got a word from God my pastors
are cool with it me and my spouse are in agreement but it’s still scary let’s
take a step of faith let’s take a maybe let’s believe God let’s try and
even when you do it at first your flesh and your faith are still fighting so
much but it’s like you know what I’m a forgive that person I’m gonna take
a step you know what we’re gonna go to counseling we’re gonna try to make this
work we’re going we’re gonna go we’re gonna try were gonna give it a shot we’re
gonna do all we can do you know what I’m gonna start giving in the offering y’all
ever remember when you first started giving in the offering how scary that
was okay no one’s talking to me y’all
remember how scary that was when you first started giving you finally must
okay end-of-the-year giving I’m gonna do it babe we’re gonna do it all right we
gonna stretch okay we going to believe big okay let’s go write
that check you don’t even have checks but you ain’t gotta check trying to be
official get that check bucket passes by you put it in you feeling good but then
you look down and it starts leaving your life and all the sudden that check goes hey
bye and it starts waving to you and you go baby baby baby come back baby baby
baby I’m sorry baby baby I didn’t mean to do that and then it goes oh you don’t love
me no more and it leaves and then you get mad and you start staring at Pastor
Steven he’s preaching good but you don’t care you can’t even hear it you’re like
they manipulated me he got me all worked up Chris started singing those high
notes the lights hit my eyes I added a zero they I want my money back y’all ever given online and you
finally get the faith give back back back back and you actually have to learn how to obey God scare don’t wait
till you’re ready to give you’re not ready to do anything God’s called you to
do y’all ready to get married no y’all ready to have that baby no you just gotta do
it and there’s grace on the other side of your step of faith y’all don’t feel I
don’t know if my parents can remember that all the parents in here before you
have the baby you’re like I don’t know how we’re gonna do this until they’re in
your arms and you go we can do this it’s like on the other side of it there’s the
grace to do what God’s called you to do so you have to learn how to move on a
maybe number four prophesy prophesy to your situation and now the room split I
can feel it cause half y’all don’t come from this background and you go
prophecy what prophecy but you’ll prophet when we let’s say at the Lord what we’re
predicting the future and then half of y’all are charismaniacs like me and you’re
like yes I feel this right now so I’m gonna try to bring some balance amen to both of y’all cause some of y’all got too scared to some of y’all are too
excited some I’m a bring it to the middle God said Ezekiel verse 1 and 2 you’ve been
talking about the bones a lot yeah yeah yeah yeah stop talking about them watch
me talk to them Jesus did not say talk about the mountain and he did not say
deny the mountain he said talk to the mountain and there comes a point in your
life Ezekiel where you have to become a prophet in your family and you have to
speak the word of the Lord over your destiny so when I say prophesy I’m not
talking about predicting the future I’m not talking about a King James utterance
during this service I’m talking about here’s prophecy 101
every New Testament believer in the house hears prophecy 101 you get a word
from the word amen everybody say amen you get a word from the word and you say it
and you say it and you say it till you believe it and then you say it until you
see it you say it until Psalm 1:19 it gets hidden in your heart you say it
till like Joshua chapter one it becomes the meditation of your mind and comes
out of your mouth constantly you say it and you say it and you say it and it’s
not that you’re denying your circumstance you’re just you’re just
choosing a promise from God over the problem and you’re saying this is more
real to me than this because the earth is gonna fade away but your word is
gonna last forever so I’m gonna stick with your word and I’m just gonna keep
saying it and saying it and saying it until I eventually see it you get a
promise from God over your life this is the prophetic for us we believe
God and we keep declaring and we keep trusting and we choose God’s word over
everything else and it feels a little crazy and it feels a little
uncomfortable but you’re choosing in that moment to say I’m not just going to
talk about it anymore I’m gonna talk to it I’m not gonna keep posting about it
I love that God did not say Ezekiel grab your phone get on your Instagram
story right now post a video with superzoom bones come on
somebody he said talk to it he see get a word and speak that word and that word
becomes powerful in your mouth God’s word in your mouth becomes a double-edged sword
it becomes Hebrews chapter 4 it out of out of one side it comes out of God’s
mouth and out of the other side it comes out of your mouth and when you start
saying what God has already said God starts moving and heaven meets earth and
earth meets heaven and all of the sudden something supernatural can
begin to happen because it’s no longer just a book that’s collecting dust but
it now becomes the Living Word the Rhema word out of your mouth and God begins to
move at his word not your word his word in your mouth so we don’t believe that
we just get whatever we say and we can just you know confess it and possess it
blab it and grab it that’s not what I’m talking about but I am saying but I am
saying that this word becomes a compass it becomes my true north and over time
my life begins to go in the direction of the word y’all with me over time this
becomes my guiding North Star God said speak to it not just about it
we can have the team come up I’m almost done I I remember as a child all of us
kids I’m one of five we all went crazy we all all the parents of teenagers
started laughing just now but wasn’t like a funny laugh is like we all went
crazy we all did things we regret and put our parents through a lot but can I
tell you my parents they just never left the word it was weird it’s like any time
we woke up in the morning they were in the word and we the Chavez Home we called
it a quiet time they were always in the word they always knew a word they always
had a word and and it got a little annoying to us kids but really it was
agitating something deep in our soul I remember I remember waking up one night
in the middle of the night and I felt liquid hitting my head now again every
pentecostal is with me every baptists online right now it’s
like what is he talking about and I remember waking up thinking there must
be a leak in the roof and it must be there must be water hitting my forehead
and all the sudden I finally come to and there’s my mama five foot nothing with a
bottle of olive oil come on somebody and the promise of God in her mouth
devil take your hands off of my child as for me and my whole household we shall
serve the Lord me and my whole household shall be saved
I plead the blood of Jesus over this baby right now and I tell the death
angel to leave this house in Jesus name I command angels to surround this room
every spirit that’s not the Holy Spirit get out in the name of Jesus I wake up
start freaking out mama it looked like an NBA championship with champagne but
it was oil and my parents never left the word can I tell you today we are all in
God’s house we’re all in love with Jesus all of our children are in God’s house
friend I’m not here to tell you that by this time tomorrow everything’s gonna be
perfect but here’s what I’m telling you that if you will get the word of God in
your heart and you will get the word of God in your mouth your life will start
to come into alignment because as Ezekiel spoke the word bones came
together flesh came together muscle came together skin begin to form sinews begin
to form God started doing something when you speak God’s word things begin to
happen hallelujah lastly though lastly um praise the Lord go ahead and clap if
you want to I feel this right now don’t let her praise alone you don’t
know what she’s going through but maybe a miracles in motion right now why don’t
you praise with them right now hallelujah this this last point is why
elevation is so special this last point I want to tell you about is is why you
love this house it’s beyond just the natural gifting hard work and talent of
your pastor it’s beyond just the beautiful production and lighting and
music I want to lastly tell you about the wind
invite the wind speak to the wind I want to remind you today that we believe in
the power the presence and the person of the Holy Spirit the Godhead is not
Father Son and Holy Scripture we believe in the Holy Spirit we believe in the
wind of God the breath of God the life of God we believe that the wind can blow
in your life we believe that grace can begin to breathe upon your life again we
love the structure we love the form and we love the muscle oh but when we’ve
done all we can do I need the wind to blow this is not by might nor by power but by
my spirit saith the Lord of Hosts there is something about leaving just your
natural grit and hustle and grime and say the Holy Spirit I need you to
breathe upon my life and Lord I don’t just need you I want you I want the move
of the Holy Spirit I want the breath of God in my life Lord would you speak to
me would you leave me would you guide me would you convicted me would you correct
me would you comfort me would you empower me God we don’t want to do this
without you and like Moses said God we ain’t going to the promised land without
you if you don’t go we don’t go because we want you more
than we want anything else and God’s said Ezekiel why don’t you invite the wind
to begin to blow why don’t you invite the breath of God to begin to breathe

  1. He has just sent me in to another valley about 20 minutes ago and this one is BIG but this time I'm going in to it knowing God is with me he sent me in to it and he will see me through this one just as he has lead me through all the valleys before this

  2. Ezekiel 37:1-10
    What to do in a valley
    The fruit is in the valley
    The valley is like the gym of the Holy Spirit
    -Know that God is with you in the valley
    The valley has a way of lying to you
    Don’t let the circumstance tell you something that isn’t true
    You are not alone
    Might as well rejoice in the conflict
    -Look for the possibility
    Choose to see your life from God’s perspective
    Stop being obsessed with what’s wrong, it will change you
    While God is working on the bones he’s also working on you
    -Take a step into the unknown
    God will take a yes with a question mark
    When you give God your little faith he will grow you in ways you beyond what you can imagine
    It’s always bigger than you but never bigger than God
    Faith and fear live together, chose faith or fear
    Who’s voice are you going to let rule in your life?
    Peace is a person, his name is Jesus
    You have to get comfortable being uncomfortable
    -Prophesy to your situation
    I’m going to stand on the word of the Lord
    Hebrews 4
    We believe in the Holy Spirit
    I can’t do this without you!
    Hey guys feel free to sub to me for Christian content but anyways hope this helped!

  3. I feel like this valley I'm in has no experation date😢😥 BUT as of today, I'm going to prophesy to these dry bones & look to Jesus🙏🏼🙌🏼

  4. Amen.
    When I feel like am alone in the valley.. I feel like there are Dry bones everywhere me.. I know The hand of God is Upon me.
    Circumstances will never Intimidate me.
    🙏🙏

  5. "God will not give you a life that is comfortable" Thank you Jabin!!
    EVERYONE (Christians too) is wanting, looking, and searching for comfort ~ aren't we?
    A comfortable place to sleep, sit, eat, wear, our job, our flesh craves comfortable function …

    Esp in relationships; comfortable = agreement on everything — folks, that is not reality!.

    So, All you need is $Money$ right ~ It will buy your comfort! Your "Cool", Your looks, your friends, your lifestyle!

    But…

    What does God say about this in his Word?
    It's actually The Pride of Life…
    The Lust of the Flesh and The Lust of the Eyes (great Sermon by Pastor Steven BTW ;))

    Complete Indoctrination from the 80's 90's and 2k's pulpit ~

    This life is NOT going to give you peace or comfortably ~ It's about doing hard things ya'll.

    Reaching out to a lost and dying world who are steeped in their pride/sin…AND we have the answer …
    It's JESUS!
    ~ GET ♥ UNCOMFORTABLE ~

  6. This is so timely! I am inviting the wind to blow my life! I am inviting the Holy Spirit to bring breakthrough in my life in Jesus name! #SoliDeoGloria!

  10. I commend Pastor Furtick for truly choosing carefully who ministers to us through Elevation . I can see why this Pastor is a friend of ours. Great message and perfectly in sync with the past weeks messages. I receive it . Thank you

  11. I need some help. Does anyone know any good kids resources? I am trying to teach my 8 year old and I am at a loss on how to explain the faith.

  12. I will be skipping next Sunday due to Elevations worldly Halloween celebration day right after church. Totally disgusting.
