- Accomplishing the impossible is all about seeing the invisible.
- 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.
- Everyone experiences what seem to be unanswered prayers. But in God’s economy, no one’s faith is ever wasted.
- Faith leads you past your fears and reassures you of God’s presence.
- God appreciates it when His people pray in a way that’s actually worthy of the God they’re praying to.
- God expects you to expect Him to be able to answer your requests.
- God has never been nervous about His ability to live up to our faith in Him.
- God wants us to push the limits of what we can ask or imagine.
- God wants us to pray in such a way that we have to immediately remind ourselves of God’s infinite greatness so that we don’t freak out.
- If God always met our expectations, He’d never be able to exceed them.
- If the size of your vision for your life isn’t intimidating to you, there’s a good chance it’s insulting to God.
- If we have the audacity to ask, God has the ability to perform.
- If you don’t get some blank stares from people, you’re not dreaming big enough.
- If you want to change the direction of your life, change the declaration of your lips.
- If you’re not daring to believe God for the impossible, you’re sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian life.
- 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.
- Maybe God wants to do something beyond your abilities, and He is far less intimidated by your failures and limits than you are.
- One of the most glaring discrepancies in the Christian faith today is between the size of our God and the size of our prayers.
- Prayer is not the FOUNDATION of your work. Foundations are stationary. Real prayer MOVES you. It is the ENGINE.
- The measure of God’s abilities will always surpass the measure of our audacity. No prayer is too big for our God.
- The presence of God is not a place to bypass your emotions — It’s a place to process them.
- The presence of God will not always fix your problems, but it will clarify your perspective.
- The same power that stopped the sun and raised Christ from the grave lives in every believer.
- The strength of your faith is directly related to your willingness to apply it in places you don’t fully understand yet.
- We say ‘all we can do now is pray’ like prayer is the last kid picked in dodge ball.
- 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.
- When God speaks to you about your potential, He will cause you to confront your past.
- When you have a dream in your heart, but no earthly idea how to make it happen, keeping your faith intact is a full-time job.
- While the greatest moves of God might start with the prayer of one, they’re sustained by the prayers of many.
- Wouldn’t you like to know how it feels to see God accomplish the impossible right in front of your eyes?
For more teaching from Steven Furtick, check out some of these books:
Mixing Steven Futrick and people like Tim Keller on your page is confusing. One a false teacher. What are you communicating to unsuspecting Christians?
I appreciate your comment, but I have found some of Tim Keller’s quotes to be encouraging and helpful in people’s journey in prayer. Just because you don’t agree with Mr. Keller, doesn’t mean he is a false teacher. We have to be careful labeling someone as such. It would be better to state what he teaches that you disagree with and what you think would be a more correct interpretation. Discussions are appreciated; labeling people as harmful creates separation in Christ’s body. Also, check the landscape of the corporate church, how many churches all think and act alike? When Paul was questioned about others following different Christian leaders, he just said he was happy the Christ was being preached. We would do well to do likewise.
It is Futrick I’m calling out. Mr Keller is one of the consistently faithful preachers we have. To yoke these two up is to confuse immature and sometimes ignorant Christians. What has any “good” thing Futrick got to say that Tim or many of the faithful pastors out there not said in a more godly way. Futrick is not someone to recommend for any Christian. He cannot even be considered as evangelical, and yes he is a false preacher, who does not belong to The Church of God in the first place.
I am not familiar with the associate of faithful pastors, which has the only pastors we are to listen to. How do pastors sign up for this association? Is it a paid membership or are they voted in by their peers/friends?
I understand those questions are silly, but what you said sets up the church for real division. Has Mr. Keller called out Mr. Furtick as a false teacher? Did Keller warn people not to listen to him? If he hasn’t why would you want to pit them against each other?
It is completely fine for you to prefer one over the other to get your input and encouragement. But, I don’t think those that go to Mr. Furtick’s church would agree of your assessment of them as ignorant Christians. I hear stories of many people coming to Christ through their services. Are you questioning those as being real conversions? If only God can turn people to Himself, why would you want to stop what God is doing?
So, in short, I will not stop finding resources from the differing parts of the body of Christ. My goal is to encourage people to go to God in prayer, and I understand that God uses the entire body of Christ to bring in the harvest.
I wish you the best in your walk with God.
You have answered wisely.
Well done, sir.
Keep up the good work.
Waterfall blessings to you and yours and also to Abigal and the two ministers mentioned.
