This is an excerpt from “Not Dead Yet.” To watch the full message from @elevationchurch, click here:    • Not Dead Yet | Pastor Steven Furtick …   #faith #peace #hope #stevenfurtick #elevationchurch Chapters: 0:00 – Have You Been In A Wilderness Season 2:06 – God Wants To Set You Free 4:19 – How To Think Clean 7:01 – Is This Best For You? 9:40 – God Has Done Big Things For Me

God works in your weakness

God works in your waiting it’s not the


it’s not the past

it’s the wilderness

the Lord sent me to somebody today who

has been in

A wilderness not physical

because he brought me from a place Egypt

but I’m not already all the way to the

place heaven

and I’m still here

and I think this might be the best way

to say it

I’m out of Egypt

but I’m not sure Egypt

is out of me

I’m in the world

I’m not of it

but there are some patterns

because one day I’m going to be with

Jesus and I’m going to sing around this

throne and sit at his feet forevermore

and I’m going to play a harp

but I’m not there yet

cause I’m not dead yet

and the only time I’m gonna be free from

this conflict is for me to be free from

this body

but as long as I’m in this body yeah I’m

I’m brought from a place I’m rescued I’m

bought with a price I’m redeemed

but I’m caught in a pattern I’m


I’m wrestling between this is where I

came from this is where I’m going this

is what I’ve done this is what he’s

doing and I’m caught in a pattern so

this is what I needed to tell the

nutritionist okay stop cussing at me

stop criticizing me stop acting like I

don’t exercise six days a week I work

really hard at this

I need to be taught

through a process

clap your hands Embrace God

for his process

that God doesn’t drop an F-bomb on you

just because you messed up again

that he could but he didn’t

he is taking his people through and he

is taking you through a Wilderness


where there’s not much water and there’s

same old scenery and it’s not exactly my

home and here I am living this life

and he’s teaching me he he brings them

okay The Book of Leviticus is actually

amazing y’all that’s why it’s love

idicus I love it I love it now I love

this book of the Bible he gives them the

offerings that they need to make whether

it’s a thanks offering whether it’s a

fellowship offering whether it’s a peace

offering whether it’s a sin offering

whether it’s a guilt offering any of

those five offerings he shows them how

to do it hey here’s how you do it hey

here’s how you cut it up hey here’s

where you offer it here’s how you offer

it here’s who offers it here’s the

priest here’s what they wear here’s what

they do here’s when they do it all of

this is not to limit them

but deliberate them


he’s a liberator

he brings me into places he brings me

into spaces he brings me into challenges

he brings me into dilemmas to set me

free from my flesh

to set me free from my feelings to show

me this is how you do it and I need him

to teach me

I need God to teach me a different way

to do it

because honestly the ways that I tried

without him do not work for very long

oh they can get me what I want right now

but they actually leave me in Greater

bondage than I was before

and I love the Lord

because he’s

a teacher

he’s been teaching me lately

not about shellfish

definitely not about monitor lizards and

wall lizards and

what did it say you can’t eat the skink

what is a skink I heard of the gecko I

see his commercial during football every

single Saturday

while I’m studying and uh

but the skank he said nah don’t eat that

and what what if you see it now like not

not about

eating clean because we know those

dietary restrictions were for that time

but the way that you think

about you

the way that you think about God

and the way that you think about your


isn’t this

what God is always teaching me

is how to think

like he thinks

about what I’m going through

about how to think

like he thinks about what is best for me

one of my favorite scripture says my

thoughts are not your thoughts says the

Lord that means there’s a big gap

between great big God and little bitty


that means what he thinks and what I

think are not automatically aligned

every morning I gotta get in sync with


so I can think like he thinks

and he says don’t eat the skink

don’t eat the skank

why because I want to teach you

to discern

so that when you go into these

neighboring nations in Canaan you won’t

do what they do you won’t think like

they think you won’t try to win like

they win you won’t fight like they fight

you won’t worry like they worry you

won’t respond like they respond you

won’t react like they react God is

teaching me to think and if I don’t let

him teach me how to think but I just

quote the promises of the Bible verse

watch this to have confidence in God’s

promises but not commitment to his


is delusional

imma say it to the safe side of the room

if I got confidence in God’s promise oh

he can do it but I don’t have a

commitment to his process that is not

depending on God that’s called denial

because we just want to believe over top

of all of our behaviors that don’t line

up with the word of God but yet he loves

me and he’s not waiting on me to act

better for him to love me but I don’t

love him like I should if I don’t get


the process

of figuring out is this what God wants

for me

I don’t have to do that with fish

anymore but I do have to do it with


I don’t have to do this with shrimp but

I do have to do it with contacts in my

cell phone is this good for me

when is the last time that we really let

God speak is this best for me and if he

tells you that’s not best for you I

don’t want that for you I didn’t bring

you out of Egypt for you to bring Egypt

into your future I want that out of your

life I want that out of your heart I

want that out of your mouth


God keeps telling me I’m too negative

and I keep telling him no I’m just


and God keeps saying stuff like okay

that’d be great

since you want to do my job and tell me

what’s good and what’s bad

and I’m like well God

you know this is kind of the way I think

and he’s like but it’s not the way that

I think

because I can face the facts but speak

in faith

so the Lord has been interrupting me a

lot lately

telling me this is unclean for you

this is hurting you

this is hurting you and you’re not

getting to Heaven because you’re holy

you’re getting to Heaven because I’m

holy and because of what I did for you

because I brought you bought you

but the devil has caught you

so now it’s time that somebody



I feel bad for Moses

he’s the one who had to teach these

people these things


I find it hard to stick to my diet for


now you got to get two million people

to study insects

in order to eat in a place where there’s

already not much water

it’s harder than we make it sound isn’t

it you know it’s not hard to say certain

things okay the Lord said don’t commit


it’s harder to discern sometimes in your


is this really how God wants me to think

about this

is this really what God wants me to say

about this is this clean

or unclean is this God’s will for me or

is this the way that I’ve known that

feels familiar to me so am I going back

to Egypt

instead of following Jesus forward

they were out of Egypt

the Egyptians were dead but guess what

the things they learned in Egypt were

still alive

yeah I’m dead to sin I’m alive to Christ


but we still have to deal

with these little things

I love the contrast because

God did a big thing for him he parted

the Red Sea

that’s a big thing how many agree that

watching a major body of water part is a


how many agree that’s big

oh come on you clap better than that

over your parking space this week at the


oh the lord gave me a parking space he

parted the waters

that’s big somebody say it’s big

big God has done big things for me if

there are three people that God did

something big for you since last Sunday

give him a big praise right now on the

level he blessed you on I mean he did a

big thing for me he did a big thing for

me guess what it was he woke me up

that’s not big if you didn’t know this

he woke me up he started me on my way

and he watched over me so I could be in

the number one more time I’m Grayson he

did it big he did it big he put it in

the set he did it big he didn’t do it

small he did it big so that everybody

would know it was the Lord he made a way

high five like we won something and tell

your neighbor he did it big he did it

big he did it big God is a show-off he

doesn’t give you a boat he Parks the

water he said I want you to know this

one’s on me so you’ll give me the glory

so you’ll give me the praise Pharaoh’s

not gonna let you go unless a mighty

hand compels him so guess who has a

mighty hand my god’s got a great big


and a long arm and he can do big things

big things

don’t ever let people make you feel bad

if you’re an exuberant praiser a big God

gets a big Praise on the level that he

did it that’s how loud I want to let him

know I appreciate


big things


big things he opened a living way you

understand how much I survive you

understand how many times I almost gave

up you understand what I went through

it’s a miracle I’m sober it’s a miracle

I’m saying it’s a miracle I’m preaching

it’s a miracle you’re praising it’s a

miracle we survived it


cause they brought me and he bought me

with his redeeming blood


go ahead go ahead go ahead go ahead go

ahead go ahead go ahead big things big

face big things might not be big to you

maybe you grew up in a different

household maybe it’s no big deal to you

but it’s a big thing to me it’s a big

thing the breath is a big thing to me
