Steven Furtick (May-26-2020) Sermon: You Can’t Let Others Control You.
"When you feel unseen, especially by the people whose attention and approval you crave the most, it can create a compulsion in your life to start doing things that are not even really consistent with your character.” In this message, Pastor Steven Furtick will help you learn how to find acceptance and approval in Christ rather than allowing others to control you. Because, unfortunately, this kind of approval from others can be taken away just as easily as it is given, leaving us feeling empty and invisible.
We need a way to get out of this unhealthy cycle and invest our best energy in better ways. The good news is, in the Kingdom of God what is unseen is often most significant. Some of the most important things we will ever do in our life will not be noticed by others, but they are always seen by God. In this message, Pastor Steven uses Matthew 6 verse 4 to show us that, "Your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”
It is okay that you need to feel appreciated, celebrated, and loved, but you need to use your greatest energy to find these things in God because you can’t let others control you.
We pray that this message fills you with fresh energy and passion to see what God can do in and through your life. God sees you, He knows you and He’s with you.

Joel Osteen (February-11-2023) Daily Devotion: Take Control.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: Do not give the devil a foothold. Ephesians 4:27, NIV
TODAY'S WORD: Scripture says to give no place to the enemy. That’s not just talking about forces of darkness; that means to give a foothold to things that weigh us down—guilt, resentment, worry, doubt, and bitterness. These things come naturally. The problem is that when we allow them in, they take up space that should be reserved for the good things God created us to be filled with—joy, peace, confidence, and creativity. But the negative can’t come in automatically and take over. You control what comes into your life. You have control over negative thoughts and emotions. You have to make the choice and say, “I’m not going to give space to negativity and let it poison my life. I won’t let an offense make me sour and bitter.” Take inventory of what you’re giving place to. Life is too short for you to go through it with negative things holding you back.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: “Father, thank You that I have control over what comes into my life. I come to You in faith declaring that I am finished with giving any room to negative thoughts and emotions. Fill me with Your joy and peace as I move forward in victory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

“Fear Not” is the most repeated command in the Bible. Fear is one of the enemy’s most popular weapons that he uses against us. We might feel afraid, but we can believe that God is with us. We may not be in control, but we can trust the One who is. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, peace and of a sound mind. We need to trust God every day!
