Lessons From The Sun Stand Still Fast!

Our church-wide fast was absolutely fantastic! It was excellent for my waistline (20 lbs. later) & even better for my spiritual appetite. I'm expecting so many big things this year for my life, my family & our church family! Below are the lessons that I learned from studying Joshua's life during this fast & what I shared with our church this past weekend.

Looking forward at Freedom Life! SUN STAND STILL 2011

The holiday season was awesome & now I'm glad it's over & I'm pumped for 2011! It's time to get back to building holy momentum toward everything that God desires to do in & through our church family! Our theme for this year is, "Sun Stand Still." It comes from a crazy passage in the Old Testament that says, "“So the sun stood still and the moon stayed in place until the nation of Israel had defeated its enemies.” Joshua 10:13 This miracle occurred as a result of a daring prayer that was prayed by Joshua, the leader of the Israelites as they were taking the Promised Land. Senior Pastor of Elevation Church, Steven Furtick, picked up on this story & wrote an inspiring book called, "Sun Stand Still." (you can buy it in our bookstore this weekend or click here) This year we are praying big, audacious prayers to a big & powerful God! Many people are hoping for a great 2011. Hope is a desire. It's a powerful emotion. …
