Message Notes

Christianity is a deep connection with the God of the universe, not a religion. 

God created you for a specific purpose. Designed for you and you only.


So many times, God’s plans for our lives seem outside the realm of our capabilities. That’s why we need to partner with Him. With man, it may seem impossible, but with God, all things are possible


Many times in life we dismiss God’s nudging or prompting. Thinking to ourself, surely there is someone more qualified who could handle this assignment.


God doesn’t want somebody else, He wants you.


Too many times, we look at God’s plan from our natural perspective, but if we will take our natural and add God into the equation, the natural will become supernatural.


God in His sovereignty will place desires within our heart. He doesn’t force us to follow them, but patiently waits for us to discover them all the while trying to guide us to our destiny.


Our job is to trust Him with all of our heart. To stop trying to figure things out on our own.


It is our calling to lay aside every weight and our sin that so easily ensnares us. So that we can run with endurance the race that is set before us.


God’s Word is the final Word and when we put our faith in Him and he will accomplish what he said he will do.


There is only one thing better than confidence, and that’s “Godfidence!”


David faced Goliath with Godfidence.

Moses parted the red sea with Godfidence.

Daniels’ Godfidence saved him from the lions.

Shadrack, Meschack, and Abednego walked into and out of the furnace with Godfidence.

Godfidence says that if God be for me, then who can be against me.

Godfidence will encourage walk through life with the assurance that you are who God says you are, and just like Turcotte everything you lay your hands on, will prosper.

Sometimes God uses a still small voice.


Psalm 139:16
“You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.”

The key to finding out God’s plan, is to diligently seek him. When we go after God wholeheartedly, we will find him.


When you allow the Holy Spirit to be your guide, he will direct your path. He will begin revealing what his plans are for your life.

Before we can trust God with our future, we have to understand that he has our best interest in mind.


God wants to use you and your life to make him known to a lost and dying world.

His plans for you are far better than any plans that you have for yourself.
