Captivated is God’s desire for His people to stop being “influenced” by Him and move to a place where we are all being completely “dominated” by Him. He longs for us to allow Him to rule and control each and every area of our lives. He truly wants His Word and His Holy Spirit to guide and direct us in each of our thoughts, as well as our emotions, and our actions. Jesus said it this way, “if you have seen Me then you have seen the Father”. As He explained this fact to His disciples in John 14, He was trying to get them to realize that because they knew Him, they actually knew the Father.
The Captivated message is just that! Captivated is a calling for God’s people of all ages, gender, and race to pursue His plan for us and not the world’s plan. It inspires to bring passion to live life the way He designed us all to live it. This only starts with us gaining the knowledge and the wisdom of what the Word of God tells us that we should do. Captivated challenges us all to take the wisdom of His Word and live with boldness through the power of His Holy Spirit.
The vision of Captivated is to take this message to everyone and present it to them in a way that meets them where their life is. From the soccer mom to the CEO, and the second grader to the senior citizen, our hope is that captivated will reach everyone across-the-board. Leaving no stone unturned, we hope to present Captivated in a format that will appeal to everyone from all walks of life. God’s Word spoken is powerful but God’s Word understood and applied is unstoppable!
Paul talks about this in chapter 14 of 1 Corinthians. He is speaking specifically about prophesying the Word of God. Prophesy literally means to speak the promises of God for the purpose of edifying His people as well as the person prophesying. When the Word of God is spoken, everyone profits! We should all desire to prophesy the word of God, and to speak the Word of God into the lives of others, by living it within ours. This can only happen when the Word of God is first planted deep within us and then most importantly when we live the word of God.
All of God’s children are significant in the kingdom of God. Every voice is important, including yours. We have to learn to be Captivated so that when we speak, and more importantly by simply the way we live, it is clear that it comes out of the most powerful Message in the world. Become Captivated by His Word. Become dominated by His Spirit and live in the fullness of God. It is time to stop being religious and trying to be “spiritual” and simply focus on the fullness of God within our lives! The most important thing that we can do is understand the Word of God and apply it, so that ultimately, we all live it and not just talk about it.
