God, what do you want me to do? | Pastor Steven Furtick

God already knows what you need and he
also knows what you think you need and he already knows where you’re running to
get what you think you need from people who can’t give it I don’t pray to inform
God I pray to involve God to let him know that I already know that you see my
situation and I already know that you know what I need more than I do see
here’s a beautiful thing about Mary she didn’t know what to do but she knew who
to go to how many of you are in that situation right now in your life I don’t
know what to do but give her credit give her credit she knew who to ask about it
and she knew who not to ask about it she wasn’t gonna go ask the the wedding
planner she wasn’t gonna go ask the person who didn’t order enough wine for
the festival to begin with she wasn’t gonna go ask the groom who
would now spend the rest of his life ashamed see for us no more wine at the
wedding is an inconvenience right but this was not an inconvenience this
would mark that culture to not be able to offer hospitality at your
own wedding would be the deepest mark of shame and if indeed this party goes bad
they don’t go to jail like Billy McFarland but they spend the rest of
their life being the couple that ran out of wine isn’t it cool that the first
thing Jesus did to show who he was was not to expose shame but to cover it you talk about flip the flow all the law
could do was show us our sin to show us that we fall short of the glory of God
but when grace came now not only do we see our sin but grace comes to cover our
sin and to take our shame away now what Jesus says next is not exactly a good
thing to say to your mom or your wife for that matter verse 4 woman why do you
involve me and notice what she doesn’t do she doesn’t give a list of reasons
why it would be good and after all Bobby and Cindy were good to us she doesn’t list
reasons she does something very different very different than what a lot
of us do she flips the flow watch this he says my hour has not yet come
his mother stopped talking to him and started talking to the people who were
hired to run the wedding watch verse 5 look flip the flow ready God
do something God do something God do something God do something God why won’t
you do something well watch this first verse 5 his mother said to the
servants do whatever he tells you drops mic walks off and the next thing
that happens I love it the next thing that happens is that
Jesus in response to their obedience already knowing the whole time what they
needed I need to make sure that you really believe before I move forward in
this teaching that you really believe that God already knows what you need and
he also knows what you think you need and he already knows where you’re
running to get what you think you need from people who can’t give it and notice
what Mary says she goes do whatever he tells you it’s open-ended and it’s
focused do whatever he tells you remember she’s
not running the party neither is he but all of a sudden she tells the servants I
know you’ve been running around looking for wine but it’s a long way Cana
is a backwoods town there’s no Whole Foods you’re not
getting any oh no there is no wine room at any restaurant in Cana okay
there is no bottle service at any restaurant any Steakhouse in Cana so
forget about it but she says do whatever he tells you whatever he tells
you not whatever they think you should do not whatever culture you know tells
you is good right now not whatever the values of the world happen to be
right now not what you think is important not what you read about not
what you think everybody else is one of the reasons that you’re
running out of energy is because you are expending it trying to do what you think
everybody else wants you to do and needs you to do and so when you can’t get
focused on God what do you want me to do what do you want me to do and I know
what you’re thinking you’re like if it were that simple I would do it if I knew
what he wanted me to do you make it like it’s simple do whatever he tells you to do well guess what I don’t know what he
wants me to do I’ve been praying should I take this other job
I’ve been praying should I switch schools I’ve been praying should we you
know finally put a down payment I’ve been praying whether or not we should
leave Elevation the answer’s no I’ve been praying whether I should ask her
I’ve been praying whether I should say yes I’ve been praying whether or not we
should shift it I’ve been praying should I take my money out of the market put it back
in I’ve been praying should I spend more time at home with the kids or
earn more money so they can actually have something to eat when I’m there
I’ve been praying it’s not so simple as to say do whatever he tells you to do
but the Lord’s been speaking to me about that too and you know what he told me it’s
not the times that you didn’t know what to do it’s the times that you didn’t do
what you knew if you would do what you knew I know there’s a lot that you don’t
know but there’s a lot that you do look here everybody in this room over the age
of 8 knows enough about nutrition and fitness to be fitter than we are right
now everybody knows enough and I’m not saying don’t hire a trainer
we got great trainers that go to this church but Buck honestly I don’t need
you to teach me anything else about exercise I just need to do what I knew
for all those years I didn’t do it I knew push-ups I learned them in sixth
grade I didn’t do them I knew Doritos were the devil I learned
it in an early age my dad was 300 pounds a lot of my life I knew what Doritos
would do I knew that I needed to close the back of Doritos I knew that four
honey buns wouldn’t work to sculpt a figure I knew what to do I didn’t do
what I knew come on are you gonna be honest with me you got in a lot of
situations not because you didn’t know you already knew you already knew your
parents tried to tell you your grandma tried to tell you your preacher tried to
tell you your Bible tried to tell you it’s not what you don’t know that makes
you run out it’s the things that you knew that you didn’t do I can tell right
now that you don’t like my sermon anymore you wanted the water to change
to wine you didn’t want to do anything we wanted bitterness to turn to
happiness we didn’t want to do anything we wanted apathy to turn to passion we
didn’t want to do anything but touch somebody and say Nike was right just do
it and it’s true in every realm I use fitness as
an example but we could use anything finances you don’t have to understand a
whole lot about finances to do better than most Americans do it’s gonna
basically come down to you know no and yes do I need it no should I keep it
yes do that a lot and you’ll be blessed should I spend it
should I save it should I give it no and yes it’s easy to miss the
signs see we want something deep right I learned this I learned that people
love deep preaching because they don’t have to do crap about it because he’s
coming on a horse and meanwhile you know we’re stressed out trying to
make car payments and but he’s coming on a horse not Monday not Monday he’s not I
like that MMA preaching Monday Morning Application preaching and I’m here to
tell you that the reason we run out a lot of times isn’t because we need more
the reason I run out is because I’ve got I’ve got four meditation apps on my
iPhone four I found out they don’t calm you down if you don’t open them they
don’t calm you down because you bought them and don’t send me any kind of
social media on how you know meditation is Buddhist I don’t
I don’t even want to hear watch Jesus was not reluctant to help
that’s not why he said why do you involve me he knew that in order for
them to see who he was that they had to do what they knew to do and that’s all
he asked hey thank you for watching make sure you subscribe to this channel so
you don’t miss a single video or live stream and share this video with a
friend and don’t forget you can join me live every Sunday thanks again for


  1. Right God won’t handle what He gave you the power to handle and right don’t worry about nothing it will all fall in place on His time meanwhile do what you know…. keep the faith
    Awesome I’m on a inspirational roll

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing the word….. Its really helping me and answering my questions…. Thank you so much💖…. God bless you..😇

  3. So how many messages or what ever did you get about meditation or Buddha… Lol 😂😂🤣🤣🤣 that was funny. You know some holy person is going to do it..

  4. I love you hillsong keep being yourself. Oops sorry I thought this was Hillsong I think that bc you guys are trying to be THEM. 😁

  5. I love watching ur video pastor. God has given you the power to spread the word of God. Im thankful to Almighty God that I have found you, While watching your videos I felt the spirit of God within me, feeling so enlightened, Thanks so much pastor for delivering such an amazing words of God.

  6. I really get a lot from many of his preachings, but I would appreciate to know what view he has of meditation, because this is not the first time he mentions it. I believe there is a difference between meditating on the Word like the Bible tells us to do and to meditate the way most people in our society do these days, because that sort of meditation has roots in other religions. I'm definately not planning on telling him what he should or shouldn't do, I would just like to know what his view of meditation is so that I can decide if I want to keep listening to him or not. Because right now I'm very unsure about if I should really continue to listen to him, since he has made several references to meditation without explaning his view of it.

  7. The way you put the word of God into our everyday lives is just inspiring and connects me in such a deeper relationship with Jesus thankyou Brother Steven God Bless you 🙏😇

  8. Some minutes earlier,I was telling God what I wanted Him to do as if He didn't already know…Thank you for this timely word pastor Steven

  9. Yeah it is pretty common and beyond frustrating when you are overweight or out of shape and fit people in our society in general or maybe somebody you know personally thinks fat people are fat because they don't KNOW how or what to eat or how and what to do for physical fitness! So, they proceed to tell you what you already know, yet they are thinking they have just given you the keys to freedom and now you will do those things and be trim and fit. Lol. You want to punch them in the face because you want to say "Why are you saying something with a look on your face as though your words are enlightening? The fact that you didn't think or assume I have this knowledge and common sense already is extremely insulting!"

    Or they make sleight remarks while in the presence of others, knowing fully aware of their malicious intentions, which is to make you feel nothing short of ashamed. They want you to lose what little self esteem you have left. That is the truth.

    The worst part, though, is when they SEE you visibly upset by their words, because you walk away fuming, or you explode in anger and call them out on it before walking away angry. by you either walking away fuming, OR by directly confront them in anger before walking away, and they act stunned of your reaction. They will say to the group "Wow! Someone sure has anger issues! Right? They are so unstable, did you see that? I only asked why they were ordering the pasta when they are supposedly wanting to lose weight. I simply suggested ordering the side salad with light dressing would be a healthier option. I only 'fat shame' them because I genuinely care about their health, you know? I am only trying to help." And everyone nods their head in agreement that they are not the bad guy and is actually a caring person trying to help someone and show tough love. They also want people to think the one who responded in ager is emotionally unstable and has maturity issues too. Which is doubly maddening!!! Makes me ill to watch passive aggressive behavior seen in sarcastic, hurtful put downs. When they are called out in it, they have the gull to defend their words and actions. They say their intentions were pure and they only want to HELP because they CARE. Lol!! And this type of behavior is not excluded to food and fitness either! People have a talent for making critical and condescending remarks about virtually every topic! These people and situations are unavoidable in this world. God help me deal with this type of thing in various places eith various people in life. Help me learn to immediately let the offensive words repel and bounce off of me and to forgive every offense immediately and never take root in my heart creating bitterness inside if me and that I will come out unscathed. In Yeshua's Name. Amen.

  10. I need God to help me with my 20 year old daughter who disregards her family. Lord I invite you to do what you know is right.

  11. Here is the ASWER : This is what God want you to do ,Pastor Steven Furtick.

    Do your part to spread Gods message ( His seed ) in His Harvest !

    A spiritual harvest is the result of God’s work in the heart of man.
    Mark 4:14 and
    It is clear from the parable of the seed and the sower, the seed
    is the Word of God, the Gospel, or the good News is here in :1Corrinthians 3:16-17-20
    Read this verses from your own Bible: ————–This
    is the GOSPEL Jesus preach——
    Colassians 1:26-27-28 and 1 Corinthians 6:19 and
    Hebr 3:6  and 2 Corinthians 6:16 and Act 5:32 and 1 John 3:24 and
    Romans 5:5 and 8:11

    13:37 He answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the
    Son of Man ( Jesus )

    The Scripture is very bold and emphatic in attributing to Christ's
    followers likeness to Him, in nature, in character, in relation to
    the world, because all genuine believers have the Spirit of God who dwell in them; ( and the sower are us–you and me.) When the Word of God is
    sown there, the person accepts it and continues to mature and that
    some people’s hearts are good soil;

    Luke 10:2 And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are
    few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out
    laborers into His harvest.

    Jesus told us to pray to the Lord of the harvest for more laborers (Matthew 9:38).

    We should pray about all aspects of the spiritual harvest process. 

    We can ask God to change people’s hearts.

    God’s laborers in the spiritual harvest of souls are promised great reward
    for their faith and perseverance
    ( James 1:12; and 1 Peter 5:4; and 2 Timothy 4:8;and Hebrews 11:1-40 ).
    This applies to all aspects of our spiritual lives, including witnessing
    and seeing people saved and growing in the Lord, which is the
    spiritual harvest we all long to see.

    Galatians 6:7-8 and  Matthew 24:14
    And this gospel of the kingdom( 1Corrinthians 3:16-19) will be preached throughout the whole inhabited earth as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
    correctly understood,This is a responsibility not to be taken
    lightly..        AMEN

  12. Ive been praying about whether I should switch jobs…. I want to make more money so I can give more and not struggle myself

  13. 6:13 is THE POINT, the key in this short message. We should at least to do what we know He ALWAYS wants us to do: love others, pray, and read the Word! great message 🙂

  14. I know this isn't the point of the sermon, but in some cases meditation is buddhist. If they're using their terms, or buddhas's etc,
    but if youre just breathing and focusing that's different.

  15. John 2:4 "woman" Jesus is not being disrespectful to Mary.. he is linking Mary to the Woman who she is.. the "Woman" in genesis 3:15. Jesus also links this at the Cross. Mary is the new Woman/the new Eve, the mother of our God and the mother of the Church. Jesus would never be disrespectful to the new Ark of the Covenant. The fullness of the Truth can only be found in the Catholic Church. God bless my brother and sisters in Christ 🙏

  16. I'm really touch your words pastor "I don't pray to inform God but I pray to Involve God" this words are so powerful

  17. I angry ant God, cause He doesn't say anything about a thing I've been waiting for months, I ready for a yes or no, I don't care, I will obey both, but He just says wait, and I'm super angry, getting crazy, shouting and screaming at Him, why can't He say yes or no?

  18. Tired of "Ted-X" style "talks ABOUT God"? Get back to listening to real annointed preachers PREACH AND TEACH THE WORD OF GOD.

  19. We need to know what his will for us is and then follow it completely. The Lord's prayer gives us a clue.

  20. this is what God want you to do Pastor Steven Furtick.   
    Malachi 2:1-2 and  Ezekiel 34:1-7 

    Deuteronomy 18:19
    And whoever will not listen to my words [ that is Me ] that he shall
    speak in my name, I myself (God) will require it of him.     [He means me,I'm telling you] And now, O priests, this command is for you. 2 If you will not hear, and if you will not set it on your heart to give
    glory to My name, says YHWH
    of Hosts, then I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your
    blessings. And indeed I have cursed it, because you do not set it on your heart.    Hosea 4:6
    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected
    knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have
    forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. 
     James 2:10 For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a
    person who has broken all of God's laws.  And remember??? ………..Matthew 7:21-23
    Father YHWH knows us by our name, shouldn't we know Him by His?
    Yahweh placed His name in the scriptures nearly 7,000 times. And 7,000 times bible translators
    substituted it with a generic, insulting and meaningless title and
    name such as "LORD" or "GOD."  God is not His
    name,it is satans name [ 2 Cor. 4:4 ]
    The true God has given himself a name and it is found in the bible at
    Psalms 83:18 and Isaiah 42:8.
    His Name is YAHWEH  and it is crucial to use His Name
    in order for our prayers to be heard and to please Father YHWH. We
    must also pray in the Name
    of His son Jesus Christ in order to be heard byYHWH for no one comes
    to the father except through Jesus.
    Zechariah 13:9
    "Father YHWH require
    to be feared as a Lord, honored as a Father, loved as a Husband.
    Which is chiefly of these? Love. Without this, fear has torment,
    honor has no grace. Fear, when not freed by love, is servile. Honor,
    which cometh not from love, is not honor, but adulation. Honor and
    glory belong to Father YHWH Alone; but neither of them will YHWH
    accept, unless seasoned with the honey of love."
    Romans 8:9 You, however, are controlled not
    by the flesh, but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you.
    And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.    Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected
    knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have
    forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
    So what will we choose? Will we choose the traditions of men or the word of
    Almighty Yahweh? I don't know about you, but I'm going with the
    Word…just as He inspired it!   By withholding the proclamation of His Name, we may well be guilty of
    "making His Name worthless."  Malachi 1:11; Isaiah 12:4
    And today, people are calling Him "Lord for Father and GOD for
    Yahweh ,and this make  Father YHWH equal to satan. " Satan
    must be enjoying this. I notice that the word "Satan"
    (a Hebrew word) is still in our bibles but Yahweh's name is taken
    out. What a shame!
    As Author of the Bible, Only Father YHWH himself has the  right to
    change or alter the Bible.  YHWH himself
    gave mankind a warning – in his own Word – The Bible;
    to NOT add to – NOR take away from his Words.
    Galatians 6:7 Make no mistake about this:
    You can never make a fool out of YHWH. Whatever you plant, is what
    you'll harvest.  And this is His last warning……..
    Psalm 75:8 The LORD holds a cup in his hand, filled with the
    strong wine of his wrath. He pours it out, and all the wicked drink
    it; they drink it down to the last drop. 

    Matthew 5:19   Gods wrath comes on those who are disobedient

    John 15:6
    If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the
    branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. There
    are several different ways of taking His Name in vain (which means to
    falsify with god or lord etc.) but the way most done today, even
    though in most cases through ignorance, is by use of a corrupt form.
    If you remove an author's name from the books he wrote and reprint
    them with another name in them you would be falsifying his works. The
    same is true when you substitute Yahweh's Name with another.
    Everything that a believer in Yahshua [Jesus] does in obedience to
    Him should be done in the Name that the angel gave Him, and "FOR
    HIS NAME" (Romans 1:5). Now,
    please don't misunderstand my intentions!  I'm certainly not trying
    to heap condemnation on anyone with these notes … I'm only
    attempting to remind us of the Truth found through His Word: What He
    commands us , all I'm saying is, why not obey Him — why not properly
    esteem Him

  21. I'm a teenager n the videos come in divine timing I feel like God is always surrounding me. Thanks pastor watching from Meghalaya (Shillong ).

  22. I put these terms here so you could see how they are all related to one another and to perhaps make it better to understand that in order for racism to be effective as they have had it, it had to be structured, administered and executed in every established institution, even utilizing code words and psychology, and this includes Christianity.

    System– A complex of methods or rules governing behavior. An organized set of interrelated ideas or principles. A social, economic, or political organizational form.

    Government– The exercise of political authority over the actions, affairs, etc., of a political unit, people, etc., as well as the performance of certain functions for this unit or body.

    The control and administration of public policy in a political unit. A system or policy by which a political unit is governed (to exercise sovereign authority over; to control the actions or behavior of).

    Institution– An organization founded and united for a specific purpose. A custom that for a long time has been an important feature of some group or society. An established organization or foundation, law, or relationship in a society or community.

    Law– a rule of conduct or procedure established by custom, agreement, or authority. The body of rules and principles governing the affairs of a community and enforced by a political authority; a legal system. The condition of social order and justice created by adherence to such a system.

    Ideology– A set of doctrines or belief that are shared by the members of a social group or that form the basis of a political, economic, or other system.

    Racism– A policy, a group, a system of government based upon fostering (to promote; aid the development of; support) such a doctrine; discrimination {[the evil and wicked form of discrimination of the ruling class that utilizes it's knowledge, wealth, power, technology, might, influence, strength, force, etc., to keep themselves on the top rung of the ladder and burdening others to keep them down on the bottom.]} [Matthew Chapter 23]

    Far too many of us are influenced by the indoctrination and propagandizing of the world, this world, on every level and in every area of life, and so much so that when This Gospel, The Real Gospel of The Kingdom of God is Preached, Taught, or Spoken of, we can sometimes have a defensive reaction to fight against it without wisely inspecting Scripture in Search of God's Kingdom Ourselves. We think we already know things because we were told what and how to think about what The Lord God truly is saying to His People in His Word.

  23. This message is exactly what I needed to hear! I got myself into a situation that I now realized I knew what I was suppose to do but I didn't do it! I didn't do what I knew I was suppose to do which got me into the position I'm in now noe I need to do what I know I Am suppose to do which isn't clear now but I'm slowly starting to believe things are falling into place and becoming clear! Please pray for me and my situation

  24. I don’t know what to do most the time. God doesn’t give me any signals or signs or Anything that make sense. My family never taught me anything much and as I go on to the world I feel as if I’m expected to know but I was never taught. The only thing I know what to do most the time is going forward and not stopping. The rest no comfort just going forward. What stinks about itIs it feels blind and I keep circling around because I don’t know where I’m going. They say you’re supposed to go forward and the light will come. But if there’s never a like to follow Thenhow do I go I’m going in The right way?

  25. Yeah I tried now38 yes all get is nothing no direction learning problems no retirement nothing so tell me what can't

  26. Your message is right. But for me, its stuffed in a different context so its not anything worthy. If you have any idea of who has access to your stuff to stuff it on random people, please let me know, because I don't hate the actual people that stuff because I am not sure. But I make enemies with people I don't know and really don't contradict sometimes. Please stay away from people you don't know, they might slipper you for reasons you will not know.

  27. Lord I dont know what to do? But I do know who to go to and I know I do have your peace, as your word says you will never leave me or forsake me, Amen.

  28. Tao man I have to tell you!!!! It's been dawning in me for some time the realisation that I feel only attracted to being in bed with girls who are size 4-6….. Coh its noticeably better for me, really even in the mirror you se me with a size 4-6 girl and it makes me look like I'm huge and really it just feels better for me… But certain girls who are more size 8+ can be good but they have to know how to work it so you get like good feelings with out too much weight on you… Like a couple girls I know can really keep there size 8+ figure in good form but honestly I'm only like a 6inches man… And any girl usually who is bigger then size 8 usualy wants to go too hard for me and it's kinda off putting. Where for me girls who are size 4-6 for me are seriously like the only option for making me feel like I'm big enough to fill my girl

  29. Like from India.Thank you pastor for this video, this all is my everyday battle you see. What i want keeps on coming while God knowing everything focuses instead on what i need to be a better disciple, a tougher warrior, that too in His own time.

  30. Lovely message Bro☺️ I knew what to do and what not to do🙌 Yes for Yes and No for No. I am strong in my decisions.

  31. The sermon of the wedding is and will always be my favorite of the Bible. I had a dream once I was in the receiving line at the wedding and met Mary and Jesus. I’ll never forget it. Thank you God for your glory

  32. If you do what you know😢😢😢🔥🔥🔥, truth be told we know what to do but we don't do what needs to be done. Just like Paul said Romans 7: 15 – 20.

  33. I will no longer pray to inform God but I will pray to involve him….thankyou for this wisdom. I will also do what i know I should do

    MONEY MISTAKES THAT LED THEM TO HELL.   God’s Word is very clear on this matter.
    Riches are worthless in the day of wrath, but
    righteousness brings deliverance from death.
    For the day is near, the Day of the YHWH is near. It will
    be a day of clouds, a time of doom for the nations.
    This is what the YHWH GOD says: 'Disaster! An
    unprecedented disaster–behold, it is coming!
    Deuteronomy29:20-28 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger
    of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all
    the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the
    LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven…
    Ezekiel7:11 Their violence has grown into a rod to punish their
    wickedness. None of them will remain: none of their multitude, none
    of their wealth, and nothing of value.
    Ezekiel7:19,They will throw their silver into the streets, and their
    gold will seem unclean. Their silver and gold cannot save them in the
    day of the wrath of Father YHWH. They cannot satisfy their appetites
    or fill their stomachs with wealth, for it became the stumbling block
    that brought their iniquity.
    Zephaniah2:2  before the appointed time when the day passes as the chaff,
    before the fierce anger of Yahweh comes on you, before the day of
    Yahweh's anger comes on you.
    Zephaniah3:8 Therefore wait for Me," declares Father YHWH, "until
    the day I rise to testify. For My decision is to gather nations, to
    assemble kingdoms, to pour out upon them My indignation, all My
    burning anger. For all the earth will be consumed by the fire of My

  35. " I don't pray to inform God. I pray to involve God to let him know that I already knows that you see my situation. And I already know that you know what I need more that I do." So lovely
