Whenever we go out in this season we’re reaching for our masks and gloves to protect ourselves from an invisible virus. Pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC is helping us keep our minds safe from fear, frustration, and even an unhealthy obsession with ”the facts.” He says, “We need medical masks for our minds,” so we can “Focus On The Fruit.”
Building from two key Bible passages, Philippians 1 verses 12-22 written by the Apostle Paul while he was in prison and Romans 8 verses 18-28 Pastor Steven is continuing with more quarantine encouragement, following messages like “Looking Forward To Normal” (http://ele.vc/Di8Ujh) and “A Lesson In Letting Go (http://ele.vc/B4tEKI).”
Romans 8 verse 28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Even if we feel like we’ve been given a prison sentence in this season, we can choose to focus on the word of God, Live the fruit of the spirit, and we can choose to turn graves into gardens.
When you watch this message, you’ll learn how to shift your mind to the only thing you really can control —what you choose to focus on. You’re going to learn the freeing power of embracing the phrase, “I don’t know.”
While the media and politicians are scrambling to find the facts and people are becoming more and more paralyzed waiting on vaccines, we can, instead, “Focus On The Fruit.” Pastor Steven Furtick says, “We are all equally ignorant about what’s next,” so we may as well focus on what’s now and expect God to meet us in the middle. “What I’m going through is nothing compared with what God is going to do through it.”
Don’t focus on your frustrations, your fears or even the facts, in this season, we need to “Focus On The Fruit.”
