Steven Furtick
“Stop waiting for what you want, and start working what you have. This can turn your greatest frustration into your greatest potential innovation. If you'll do your part, God will begin to do what only He can do: He'll make your box bigger.”

“Great moves of God are usually preceded by simple acts of obedience.”
Steven Furtick
“Enjoy the journey, because the destination is a mirage.”
Steven Furtick
“One of the Enemy's most effective strategies is to get you to focus on what you don't have, what you used to have, or what someone else has that you wish you had. He does this to keep you from looking around and asking, "God, what can You do through what I have?”

“God gives the exact experiences he wants them to have in order to shape the specific destiny he designed for them.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“The next time you lose your momentum in daily life as you're chasing after God's best for you, don't give up and conclude that it's over. The greater life hasn't ended for you. It's only out of sight under the waters of the ordinary. And God can resurface it, supernaturally, as many times as it takes. As many times as you're willing.”
Steven Furtick, Greater: Dream Bigger. Start Smaller. Ignite God's Vision for Your Life.
“Audacious faith is not passive. Neither is audacious prayer. Every aspiration you have in prayer needs an accompanying action. Otherwise you're not really praying. You're just pontificating.

You do the natural. Trust God for the super.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“What matters most is not what I think I am or am not. What matters is what my Father sees in me and what He says about me.”

“It shouldn't freak you out to realize that God's eyes are on you. Because He doesn't see you through eyes of disapproval or disappointment. His presence is not a sign of condemnation. It's actually an invitation. God is present with you, through His Holy Spirit, because He intends to uproot you from the tyranny of the familiar, shatter the monotonous life you've had. And take you on an adventure.”

“The One who lives outside of time invites you into a reality that is informed by His perfect plans to give you hope and a future. God speaks in the past tense about battles you’re currently fighting. And He buries the shame of yesterday in order to resurrect the moment you are in and sustain you in the season He is calling you to embrace.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“Isn’t this a microcosm of how our lives feel sometimes? I don’t completely understand the rules, and I’m surrounded by others who are smarter. Fitter. Funnier. Better. But when we narrow our focus and know where to look for the approval of our Father, life takes on a glorious simplicity. The burning question is no longer “What did they think of that?” Or even “What did I think of that?” Now it’s only “God, were You good with that? Thumbs-up? If You’re good, I’m good.” His acceptance becomes my guidance. And my reward.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“Every second you spend wishing God would take away a struggle is a forfeited opportunity to overcome.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“Because the voice you believe will determine the future you experience.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“What makes you think you have to turn your life around before you can completely commit your life to God? What makes you think you have to impress God with your obedience before He will impart His grace to you? What makes you think you have to do things to get God to like you, much less love you? What makes you think you have to be the perfect spouse or parent before God will perfectly love you? Many Christians spend a lifetime trying to achieve something that Jesus already achieved for them. God’s acceptance isn’t based on performance. It wasn’t for Jesus. And because of what He did for you, it isn’t for you either. The acceptance He had, you have. The love He unconditionally received, you unconditionally receive. Yes, Jesus was the Son of God. But through Him, you are a child of God with the same privileges.1 That includes the privilege of having God look at you and say, “I am well pleased.”

“And even when you can’t get seem to get your act together, your identity is secure and completely intact. Because in Christ, who you are matters infinitely more than anything you do or cannot do.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“I tend to be one of those people who takes great pride in calling it like I see it. I say things like, “I’m not being grumpy or negative or pessimistic. I’m just keeping it real.” “I’m not complaining. I’m just calling it like I see it.” But people armed with a spirit of gratitude know that often it is what you call it. So what if, instead of calling it like we see it, we began to call it like God says it?”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“Before you were born—before any of your defects were apparent to you—they were absolutely apparent to God. That didn’t stop Him from calling your name and setting you apart. He placed you on the earth at a certain time for a pre-decided purpose.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“If God always met our expectations, He'd never be able to exceed them.”
Steven Furtick
“If you're going to ask God to do something impossible in your life, you've got to have some clarity about what you're asking for.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“I’m not raising my kids to survive the world. I’m raising them to change it.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still
“Would have. Could have. Should have. This is the language of condemnation underscored by the passivity of regret. It’s a dead language. The thing is, you can’t un-sin. You can only repent.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“Accepting God’s acceptance of me doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying. It means I’m going to stop trying out. And I am intentionally redirecting my obsession.”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
“The goal of faith isn't to take away your fears but to leverage those fears to create bolder belief. Faith leads you past your fears and reassures you of God's presence. And after a while, you begin to trust that God is going to lift you above the waves this time just like he did last time.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“Could it be that God intends for us to have the same kind of audacious faith-the kind of faith that dares to believe God for the impossible-as a normal way of life?”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible

Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“I'm determined to take ground and win big for the kingdom of God. I'm unapologetic about my mission to change the world for the glory of Jesus. I want to be a Joshua in my generation.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“I want you to live in the middle of a move of God.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“If we have the audacity to ask, God has the ability to perform.”
Steven Furtick, Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible
“Living your problems and loving them like locked rooms is much different from denying them or capitulating to them. It is believing that God is with you in the imperfect, even disappointing circumstances of your life. It is saying to Him with faith in your heart,”
Steven Furtick, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God's Voice Above All Others
