In “You Have To Fight For It!” we’re reminded that walking by sight can keep us in cycles, but moving forward in the purpose of God leads us to freedom. —— Stay Connected Website: Steven Furtick Facebook: Steven Furtick Instagram: Steven Furtick Twitter: #stevenfurtick #god #jesus #fight #future #freedom #sight #faith #confused #godsplan #purpose #plans #help #direction #clarity #peace #onlinechurch #churchonline #2023sermon Chapters: 0:00 – Feeling Stressed & Out Of Control? 2:22 – You Have To Fight For It 5:18 – There’s Nothing You Can’t Overcome 8:29 – The Power Of Your Thumb 11:45 – Take Your Thumb Back Scripture References: Judges 1, verses 4-7 You Have To Fight For It! | Rhythm Night | Steven Furtick

is in the Lord’s


and my reward

is with my God what is do me say this

out loud what is Do Me

is in the Lord’s hands

see because I’m his servant it’s his

purpose it’s his will it’s his word it’s

his word so God get me out of self-pity

oh why does nobody appreciate me why

don’t they see

and put the shine on me why is nobody

thanking me all of those things are

natural to feel but get this in your

spirit yet what is Do Me

is in the Lord’s

hand which one sometimes the left one

sometimes God is going to bless you out

of his left hand

look for it in the left hand watch for

the left hand

watch for God

to take somebody that you weren’t even

trying to impress or get to notice you

and bring them over to help you with

something that you needed help with

watch for God point you to somebody who

isn’t looking for you let’s don’t just

get in a selfish mindset we got to think

like Servants of the Lord here

and watch for God to say I want you to

be the left hand in this situation

I want you to offer to do that for them

I want you to make a difference in this

situation and nobody’s expecting you and

you need to blow a trumpet in fact do it

in secret don’t even blow the trumpet

about it don’t announce it oh I’m coming

to help just be that that left-handed

that sneaky secret weapon that God can

use don’t have to preface things when

you encourage people I want to encourage

you today just slip a little

encouragement him boom do it so much

that they don’t even know it was you

they just did it like it was from God or

they think they thought of it one of my

favorite things people tell me

after I preach is I loved when you said

blank blank blank and I didn’t say any

of that because I feel like I got them

tapped into the Holy Spirit and the

spirit said that and the spirit is way

smarter than Pastor Stephen so we did

our job Lord boom you got him with the

left hand boom got my left hand bought a

sneaky jab that’s that jab right there

that’s God coming in to do a work in

your life through the left hand watch

for the left hand the unlock is in the

left hand how many times did I think

that I wasn’t going to be a good

songwriter for worship music because of

my vocal limitations oh man I can’t sing

like that guy or that person I don’t

even know all the music theory and maybe

I should have studied more and learned

the music theory

maybe I could have maybe I could have

I’m sure I could have I know I could

have I could have paid more attention to

those lessons I got a book somewhere

around here where the lessons are

sitting in a notebook I’ll find it

I don’t want to distract myself right

now but it’s a big thick green binder

where a guy named Daryl and Saint

Stephen’s South Carolina taught me I’d

go out there and drive to Saint

Stephen’s every what was it Tuesday


and my mom will give me the money to go

pay I’m 16 years old she’s still paying

for my guitar lessons like she did when

I was 10 but I wouldn’t practice so I


I know a little bit about a guitar I

probably know enough to say if you just

heard me go uh boom

oh man


oh man I wasn’t that clean but

if we just sat here for a minute you

think I no but my knowledge would run

out so you know

for years when I was in a songwriting

situation I would think of myself as

like the least musically knowledgeable

person in the room

and I usually am

as far as Theory

you know I only really can play this one

instrument and what I know about it is



I have been able to work with great


who know things I don’t know

and bring the gift that I do have

as a musician I have an instinct that’s

unique to me

I have a way of phrasing things like one

creative put it each personality is a

prism in the Life light shines through

US differently than it will anybody else

so when I get in there and see myself as

a prism

rather than putting myself in the prison

of what I don’t know what I can’t do

how much better they are how much better

they sound no sometimes the fact that I

only know so many chords helps me

do something simple


that’s the chords to a song called

Graves into Gardens

that song has gone around the world it’s


one of the most powerful songs that I’ve

ever been a part of writing with the

people I wrote it with and I was just


this guitar is Out Of Tune by the way

the simplest riff you can imagine

with my left hand

so you can’t see the right hand the

right hand is strumming down here

but the left hand is fretting


just that

sus Court

set the tone for

you turn morning to dance


you give Beauty for Ashes

you turn shame into Glory


you use left-handed people now I’m


but my left hand is fretting

your left hand has a job too

in your weakness he is made strong


look for the unlock

in the left hand


not only your strengths to God

which are awesome you know as I said I

spent my strength in man but the Lord

said I have hidden

certain gifts

in weaknesses

not as an excuse not to practice your

guitar just to realize that your

limitations sometimes

are what God uses to unlock his power

you can see this over and over again in

scripture can’t you
