  • THANKS AGAIN FOR COMING OUT.
  • 00:00:25.150 --> 00:00:27.030
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:27.030 --> 00:00:28.080
  • FUNNY. AND I HEARD ABOUT THIS
  • 00:00:28.080 --> 00:00:30.030
  • OLDER WOMAN. SHE CAME TO
  • 00:00:30.030 --> 00:00:31.200
  • CHURCH ONE SUNDAY MORNING AND
  • 00:00:31.200 --> 00:00:33.110
  • A FRIENDLY USHER MET HER IN THE
  • 00:00:33.110 --> 00:00:34.270
  • BACK AND SAID, "MA'AM, WHERE
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:35.250
  • WOULD YOU LIKE TO SIT?" SHE
  • 00:00:35.250 --> 00:00:37.030
  • SAID, "I'D LIKE TO SIT ON THE
  • 00:00:37.030 --> 00:00:38.070
  • VERY FRONT ROW." HE SAID,
  • 00:00:38.070 --> 00:00:40.020
  • "OH NO, MA'AM, YOU DON'T WANT
  • 00:00:40.020 --> 00:00:41.080
  • TO DO THAT. OUR PASTOR'S VERY
  • 00:00:41.080 --> 00:00:42.180
  • BORING. HE'LL PUT YOU TO
  • 00:00:42.180 --> 00:00:43.280
  • SLEEP. LET ME SEAT YOU
  • 00:00:43.280 --> 00:00:45.040
  • SOMEWHERE ELSE." SHE LOOKED
  • 00:00:45.040 --> 00:00:46.290
  • APPALLED. SHE SAID, "SIR, DO
  • 00:00:46.290 --> 00:00:48.090
  • YOU KNOW WHO I AM?" HE SAID,
  • 00:00:48.090 --> 00:00:50.140
  • "NO MA'AM." SHE SAID, "I AM
  • 00:00:50.140 --> 00:00:51.270
  • THE PASTOR'S MOTHER." HE HUNG
  • 00:00:51.290 --> 00:00:54.290
  • HIS HEAD IN EMBARRASSMENT AND
  • 00:00:54.290 --> 00:00:56.180
  • FINALLY LOOKED UP AND SAID,
  • 00:00:56.180 --> 00:00:57.130
  • "MA'AM, DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?"
  • 00:00:57.130 --> 00:00:59.000
  • SHE SAID, "NO." HE SAID,
  • 00:00:59.000 --> 00:01:00.070
  • "THANK GOD." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:00.100 --> 00:01:03.100
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLE. SAY IT LIKE
  • 00:01:03.100 --> 00:01:04.070
  • YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:01:04.070 --> 00:01:05.110
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE. I AM WHAT IT
  • 00:01:05.110 --> 00:01:06.280
  • SAYS I AM. I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:08.210
  • I HAVE. I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS
  • 00:01:08.210 --> 00:01:10.110
  • I CAN DO. TODAY I WILL BE
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:12.130
  • TAUGHT THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:12.130 --> 00:01:13.280
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS: MY MIND IS
  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:15.150
  • ALERT. MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:15.150 --> 00:01:17.250
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. IN
  • 00:01:17.250 --> 00:01:19.140
  • JESUS' NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:19.290 --> 00:01:22.290
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:23.280
  • ABOUT COVERED BY MERCY. WE
  • 00:01:23.280 --> 00:01:26.030
  • ALL MAKE MISTAKES IN LIFE AND
  • 00:01:26.030 --> 00:01:28.010
  • DO THINGS THAT WE KNOW WE
  • 00:01:28.010 --> 00:01:29.110
  • SHOULDN'T DO. IT'S EASY TO LIVE
  • 00:01:29.110 --> 00:01:31.130
  • GUILTY, IN REGRETS, FEELING
  • 00:01:31.130 --> 00:01:33.140
  • LIKE WE'RE ALL WASHED UP.
  • 00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:35.190
  • A MAN SAID TO ME RECENTLY HOW
  • 00:01:35.190 --> 00:01:37.080
  • HE HAD GOTTEN OFF COURSE IN
  • 00:01:37.080 --> 00:01:38.270
  • HIS BUSINESS, MADE SOME POOR
  • 00:01:38.270 --> 00:01:40.150
  • DECISIONS, HE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:01:40.150 --> 00:01:41.280
  • INTEGRITY. NOW, IT WAS GOING
  • 00:01:41.280 --> 00:01:43.160
  • DOWNHILL. IT STARTED TO EFFECT
  • 00:01:43.160 --> 00:01:45.140
  • HIS MARRIAGE. AND I ENCOURAGED
  • 00:01:45.140 --> 00:01:47.020
  • HIM TO PRAY, TO ASK GOD TO
  • 00:01:47.020 --> 00:01:48.280
  • TURN IT AROUND, AND BELIEVE
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:50.140
  • FOR FAVOR. HE SAID, "JOEL,
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:52.030
  • I COULDN'T DO THAT. IT'S MY
  • 00:01:52.030 --> 00:01:53.150
  • OWN FAULT. I BROUGHT THIS
  • 00:01:53.150 --> 00:01:55.120
  • TROUBLE ON MYSELF." HE FELT
  • 00:01:55.120 --> 00:01:57.200
  • LIKE HE WAS DISQUALIFIED. HE
  • 00:01:57.200 --> 00:01:59.290
  • DIDN'T DESERVE GOD'S HELP
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:01.230
  • BECAUSE HIS PERFORMANCE
  • 00:02:01.230 --> 00:02:02.290
  • WASN'T UP TO PAR. AND WE CAN
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:04.230
  • UNDERSTAND HOW GOD WILL BLESS
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:06.190
  • US WHEN WE'RE DOING WHAT'S
  • 00:02:06.190 --> 00:02:08.010
  • RIGHT, MAKING GOOD CHOICES.
  • 00:02:08.010 --> 00:02:10.050
  • IT'S EASY TO EXPECT GOOD
  • 00:02:10.050 --> 00:02:11.090
  • THINGS AND BELIEVE FOR DREAMS
  • 00:02:11.090 --> 00:02:12.260
  • TO COME TO PASS.
  • 00:02:12.260 --> 00:02:14.250
  • BUT THE BEAUTY OF MERCY IS EVEN
  • 00:02:14.250 --> 00:02:16.200
  • WHEN WE MAKE MISTAKES, EVEN
  • 00:02:16.200 --> 00:02:18.140
  • WHEN WE GO THE WRONG WAY, OUR
  • 00:02:18.140 --> 00:02:20.050
  • PERFORMANCE IS NOT PERFECT,
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:21.250
  • GOD DOESN'T SAY, "TOO BAD. YOU
  • 00:02:21.250 --> 00:02:23.140
  • HAD YOUR CHANCE. YOU'RE ON
  • 00:02:23.140 --> 00:02:25.080
  • YOUR OWN." NO, THIS IS WHERE
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:26.290
  • MERCY SHOWS OFF. GOD WILL NOT
  • 00:02:26.290 --> 00:02:29.130
  • ONLY HELP BRING YOU OUT OF THE
  • 00:02:29.130 --> 00:02:31.030
  • TROUBLE THAT YOU GOT YOURSELF
  • 00:02:31.030 --> 00:02:32.240
  • IN, HE'LL TAKE IT ONE STEP
  • 00:02:32.240 --> 00:02:34.180
  • FURTHER AND HELP CLEAN UP THE
  • 00:02:34.180 --> 00:02:36.070
  • MESS YOU MADE.
  • 00:02:36.070 --> 00:02:38.150
  • MAYBE A RELATIONSHIP YOU KNEW
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:40.040
  • YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO GET
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:41.040
  • IN, YOU DIDN'T FEEL GOOD
  • 00:02:41.040 --> 00:02:42.140
  • ABOUT IT. YOU HEARD THE ALARM
  • 00:02:42.140 --> 00:02:43.280
  • GOING OFF BUT YOU IGNORED IT
  • 00:02:43.280 --> 00:02:46.040
  • AND NOW IT'S A MESS; CAUSING
  • 00:02:46.040 --> 00:02:47.270
  • YOU HEARTACHE AND PAIN.
  • 00:02:47.270 --> 00:02:49.260
  • PERHAPS A JOB YOU KNEW YOU
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:51.140
  • WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO TAKE IT.
  • 00:02:51.140 --> 00:02:52.260
  • YOU DIDN'T FEEL GOOD. YOU HAD
  • 00:02:52.260 --> 00:02:54.060
  • THAT UNEASINESS ON THE INSIDE
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:56.040
  • BUT YOU OVERWROTE IT AND DID
  • 00:02:56.040 --> 00:02:57.270
  • IT ANYWAY. NOW IT'S A MESS.
  • 00:02:57.270 --> 00:03:00.150
  • YOU'RE NOT FULFILLED. YOU'RE
  • 00:03:00.150 --> 00:03:01.090
  • NOT BEING TREATED RIGHT. GOD
  • 00:03:01.090 --> 00:03:02.170
  • DOESN'T SAY, "I TRIED TO TELL
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:03.260
  • YOU. MAYBE NEXT TIME YOU'LL
  • 00:03:03.260 --> 00:03:05.130
  • LISTEN." NO, GOD IS NOT HOLDING
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:07.280
  • THAT AGAINST YOU. HE HAS YOU
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:10.100
  • COVERED. HIS MERCY IS BIGGER
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:12.200
  • THAN THAT MISTAKE. HIS MERCY
  • 00:03:12.200 --> 00:03:14.150
  • WILL HELP NOT ONLY TURN IT
  • 00:03:14.150 --> 00:03:16.150
  • AROUND BUT GOD WILL HELP CLEAN
  • 00:03:16.150 --> 00:03:17.290
  • IT UP AND CAUSE SOMETHING GOOD
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:20.050
  • TO COME OUT OF IT. BUT IF THIS
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:21.230
  • IS GOING TO HAPPEN, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:03:21.230 --> 00:03:23.020
  • GO THROUGH LIFE GUILTY,
  • 00:03:23.020 --> 00:03:24.240
  • CONDEMNED, BEATING YOURSELF
  • 00:03:24.240 --> 00:03:26.180
  • UP BECAUSE OF PAST MISTAKES
  • 00:03:26.180 --> 00:03:28.170
  • THINKING, "OH, MAN, I KNEW I
  • 00:03:28.170 --> 00:03:30.080
  • SHOULDN'T HAVE HUNG AROUND
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:31.040
  • THOSE PEOPLE. NOW I'VE GOT
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:32.130
  • THIS ADDICTION. I KNEW I SHOULD
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:34.020
  • HAVE STAYED IN COLLEGE. I KNEW
  • 00:03:34.020 --> 00:03:35.160
  • I SHOULD HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL IN
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:37.000
  • THAT RELATIONSHIP. WHAT WAS I
  • 00:03:37.000 --> 00:03:38.270
  • THINKING?" NO, IT TAKES
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:40.220
  • BOLDNESS TO BELIEVE THAT GOD
  • 00:03:40.220 --> 00:03:42.150
  • WILL BLESS YOU IN SPITE OF
  • 00:03:42.150 --> 00:03:43.270
  • YOUR MISTAKES. THE ACCUSER
  • 00:03:43.270 --> 00:03:45.140
  • WILL TELL YOU YOU CAN'T ASK
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:47.060
  • GOD TO HELP YOU, YOU MADE
  • 00:03:47.060 --> 00:03:48.180
  • THE MESS. YOU WENT THE WRONG
  • 00:03:48.180 --> 00:03:50.050
  • WAY. YOU WERE UNFAITHFUL.
  • 00:03:50.050 --> 00:03:52.050
  • GOD'S NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO
  • 00:03:52.050 --> 00:03:53.130
  • YOU. WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
  • 00:03:53.130 --> 00:03:55.150
  • FORGIVEN, COVERED BY MERCY."
  • 00:03:59.230 --> 00:04:02.250
  • THIS IS WHAT JONAH DID. GOD
  • 00:04:02.250 --> 00:04:04.040
  • TOLD HIM TO GO TO THE CITY OF
  • 00:04:04.040 --> 00:04:06.000
  • NINEVEH AND SHARE THE GOOD
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:07.190
  • NEWS WITH THE PEOPLE. BUT
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:09.060
  • JONAH DIDN'T WANT TO GO. HE
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:10.140
  • WANTED TO DO HIS OWN THING.
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:12.070
  • HE WENT IN THE OPPOSITE
  • 00:04:12.070 --> 00:04:13.060
  • DIRECTION. HE GOT ON A BOAT
  • 00:04:13.060 --> 00:04:15.070
  • HEADED THE WRONG WAY. AND
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:16.250
  • THEY ENCOUNTERED A HUGE STORM.
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:19.030
  • EVERYBODY ON BOARD THOUGHT
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:20.090
  • THEY WERE GOING TO DIE.
  • 00:04:20.090 --> 00:04:21.280
  • FINALLY, JONAH ADMITTED,
  • 00:04:21.280 --> 00:04:23.020
  • "HEY EVERYONE, I'M THE
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:24.040
  • PROBLEM. I'M THE ONE THAT'S
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:25.220
  • CAUSING ALL THIS TURMOIL."
  • 00:04:25.220 --> 00:04:27.090
  • THEY DIDN'T SAY, "OH, THAT'S OK,
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:28.280
  • JONAH. WE'LL LET IT SLIDE. WE
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:30.160
  • FORGIVE YOU." NO, THEY THREW
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:32.020
  • HIM OVERBOARD. THEY WEREN'T
  • 00:04:32.020 --> 00:04:33.200
  • ABOUT TO GO DOWN WITH HIM.
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:35.130
  • AND JONAH THOUGHT HE WAS
  • 00:04:35.130 --> 00:04:36.160
  • DONE. IT WAS HIS FAULT. HE DID
  • 00:04:36.160 --> 00:04:37.290
  • EXACTLY OPPOSITE OF WHAT HE
  • 00:04:37.290 --> 00:04:40.220
  • KNEW HE WAS SUPPOSED TO DO.
  • 00:04:40.220 --> 00:04:42.290
  • HE WAS TREADING WATER IN THE
  • 00:04:42.290 --> 00:04:44.030
  • MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN,
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:46.040
  • DARK, IN A STORM. IT LOOKED
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:48.020
  • LIKE IT WAS OVER. HE WAS
  • 00:04:48.020 --> 00:04:50.210
  • GETTING EXACTLY WHAT HE
  • 00:04:50.210 --> 00:04:52.020
  • DESERVED. BUT GOD SAID, "JONAH,
  • 00:04:52.020 --> 00:04:54.080
  • YOU CAN RUN THE OTHER WAY BUT
  • 00:04:54.080 --> 00:04:56.050
  • YOU CAN'T OUTRUN MY MERCY.
  • 00:04:56.050 --> 00:04:58.160
  • IT'S FROM EVERLASTING TO
  • 00:04:58.160 --> 00:04:59.170
  • EVERLASTING. WHEREVER YOU GO,
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:01.180
  • I'VE GOT YOU COVERED."
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:02.220
  • THE PSALMIST PUT IT THIS WAY,
  • 00:05:02.220 --> 00:05:04.230
  • "IF YOU GO TO THE DEPTHS OF
  • 00:05:04.230 --> 00:05:05.260
  • THE SEA OR WAY UP IN THE SKY,
  • 00:05:05.260 --> 00:05:08.070
  • NO MATTER HOW HIGH OR HOW
  • 00:05:08.070 --> 00:05:09.250
  • LOW, YOU CAN NEVER GET AWAY
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:11.290
  • FROM GOD'S MERCY. HE'LL ALWAYS
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:14.050
  • BE THERE WAITING FOR YOU.
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:16.080
  • CALLING YOUR NAME. GIVING YOU
  • 00:05:16.080 --> 00:05:17.150
  • ANOTHER CHANCE. READY TO HELP,
  • 00:05:17.150 --> 00:05:19.200
  • READY TO CLEAN UP THE MESS
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:21.210
  • YOU'VE MADE. HE'S GOT YOU
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:22.290
  • COVERED BY HIS MERCY."
  • 00:05:22.290 --> 00:05:25.130
  • AND JONAH WAS FEELING GUILTY,
  • 00:05:25.130 --> 00:05:26.250
  • THINKING THAT HE WAS FINISHED.
  • 00:05:26.250 --> 00:05:28.170
  • THE SITUATION LOOKED
  • 00:05:28.170 --> 00:05:29.230
  • IMPOSSIBLE. NO WAY IT WAS EVER
  • 00:05:29.230 --> 00:05:31.260
  • GOING TO TURN OUT GOOD. BUT
  • 00:05:31.260 --> 00:05:33.180
  • GOD HAS A WAY EVEN WHEN WE
  • 00:05:33.180 --> 00:05:35.080
  • DON'T SEE A WAY. YOUR SITUATION
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:37.160
  • MAY SEEM LIKE IT COULD NEVER
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:39.120
  • TURN OUT RIGHT. YOU MADE THE
  • 00:05:39.120 --> 00:05:41.020
  • MESS. NOW IT'S COMPLICATED.
  • 00:05:41.020 --> 00:05:43.090
  • OTHER PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED.
  • 00:05:43.090 --> 00:05:44.280
  • THE ODDS ARE AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:46.150
  • BE ENCOURAGED. GOD ALREADY
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:48.140
  • HAS THE SOLUTION. HE ALREADY
  • 00:05:48.140 --> 00:05:50.110
  • KNOWS HOW TO NOT JUST BRING
  • 00:05:50.110 --> 00:05:52.050
  • YOU OUT BUT HOW TO CLEAN UP
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:53.290
  • THE MESS AND BRING YOU OUT
  • 00:05:53.290 --> 00:05:55.080
  • BETTER. AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,
  • 00:05:55.080 --> 00:05:57.000
  • THIS BIG FISH CAME AND
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:59.050
  • SWALLOWED JONAH. NOW HE'S
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:01.080
  • SITTING IN THE BELLY OF THIS
  • 00:06:01.080 --> 00:06:02.210
  • FISH. HE'S, IN ONE SENSE, GLAD
  • 00:06:02.210 --> 00:06:04.260
  • THAT HE'S STILL ALIVE, THANKFUL
  • 00:06:04.260 --> 00:06:06.180
  • THAT HE DIDN'T DROWN. IN
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:08.170
  • ANOTHER SENSE, HE'S THINKING,
  • 00:06:08.170 --> 00:06:10.050
  • "I WISH I WOULD HAVE DIED.
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:11.160
  • IT STINKS IN HERE. I CAN'T SEE
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:12.270
  • ANYTHING. I'M TRAPPED. THERE'S
  • 00:06:12.270 --> 00:06:14.240
  • NO WAY OUT." BUT SITTING IN THE
  • 00:06:14.240 --> 00:06:17.130
  • BELLY OF THAT FISH, THOUGHTS
  • 00:06:17.130 --> 00:06:19.110
  • TELLING HIM, "JONAH, YOU
  • 00:06:19.110 --> 00:06:20.290
  • DESERVED IT. IT'S YOUR OWN
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.150
  • FAULT. TOO BAD." INSTEAD OF
  • 00:06:22.150 --> 00:06:24.060
  • LISTENING TO THE ACCUSING
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:25.220
  • VOICES, THE SCRIPTURE SAYS
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:27.190
  • JONAH BEGAN TO PRAY FROM
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:29.230
  • INSIDE THE FISH. HE DIDN'T
  • 00:06:29.230 --> 00:06:32.050
  • SAY, "GOD, I AM SO UNDESERVING.
  • 00:06:33.040 --> 00:06:36.040
  • I'VE MADE SUCH A MESS. GOD,
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:37.070
  • JUST HELP ME TO SURVIVE." NO,
  • 00:06:37.070 --> 00:06:38.220
  • HE SAID, "I CRIED UNTO THE LORD
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:40.260
  • IN MY TROUBLE AND HE ANSWERED
  • 00:06:40.260 --> 00:06:42.220
  • ME." THAT WAS A STATEMENT OF
  • 00:06:42.220 --> 00:06:45.030
  • FAITH. HE WAS STILL IN THE
  • 00:06:45.030 --> 00:06:46.220
  • FISH. STILL IN TROUBLE, YET
  • 00:06:46.220 --> 00:06:48.170
  • HE'S DECLARING "GOD HAS
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.110
  • ANSWERED ME." HE WENT ON TO
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:52.140
  • SAY, "I SANK DOWN TO THE DEPTHS
  • 00:06:52.140 --> 00:06:54.180
  • OF THE OCEAN. DEATH WAS NEAR
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:56.240
  • BUT WHEN I LOST ALL HOPE, I
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:58.290
  • TURNED MY THOUGHTS TOWARDS
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:00.080
  • YOU OH LORD. FOR YOU SNATCHED
  • 00:07:00.080 --> 00:07:02.080
  • ME FROM THE JAWS OF DEATH.
  • 00:07:02.120 --> 00:07:05.120
  • NOW I WILL FULFILL MY VOW. I
  • 00:07:05.120 --> 00:07:07.060
  • KNOW SALVATION AND DELIVERANCE
  • 00:07:07.060 --> 00:07:09.070
  • COMES FROM YOU ALONE."
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:11.100
  • NOTICE HOW MUCH OF HIS PRAYER
  • 00:07:11.100 --> 00:07:12.230
  • WAS IN THE PAST TENSE. LIKE IT
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:14.190
  • ALREADY HAPPENED. JONAH HAD
  • 00:07:14.190 --> 00:07:17.050
  • THIS ATTITUDE, "GOD, I BELIEVE
  • 00:07:17.050 --> 00:07:19.130
  • YOU'LL NOT ONLY RESCUE ME, BUT
  • 00:07:19.130 --> 00:07:21.270
  • YOU'LL HELP CLEAN UP THIS MESS,
  • 00:07:21.270 --> 00:07:23.270
  • THAT YOU'LL BLESS ME IN SPITE
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:25.140
  • OF MY MISTAKES, THAT I WILL
  • 00:07:25.140 --> 00:07:27.150
  • STILL FULFILL MY DESTINY." THAT
  • 00:07:27.150 --> 00:07:29.260
  • TAKES BOLDNESS TO ASK FOR GOD'S
  • 00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:31.290
  • BLESSINGS IN SPITE OF WHAT
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:33.290
  • YOU'VE DONE WRONG. BECAUSE
  • 00:07:33.290 --> 00:07:36.040
  • MOST OF THE TIME WE JUST LIVE
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:37.160
  • GUILTY, CONDEMNED, WE HAVE
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:39.210
  • NO PASSION. WHEN YOU HAVE THE
  • 00:07:39.210 --> 00:07:42.000
  • BOLDNESS TO SAY, "GOD, I DON'T
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:43.240
  • DESERVE IT. I WENT THE WRONG
  • 00:07:43.240 --> 00:07:45.270
  • WAY. BUT GOD I STILL BELIEVE
  • 00:07:45.270 --> 00:07:48.160
  • YOU'LL BLESS ME. I STILL
  • 00:07:48.160 --> 00:07:50.090
  • BELIEVE YOU'LL SHOW ME FAVOR.
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:52.030
  • I STILL BELIEVE I CAN BECOME
  • 00:07:52.030 --> 00:07:53.260
  • WHO YOU CREATED ME TO BE."
  • 00:07:53.260 --> 00:07:56.150
  • WHEN YOU DO THAT, GOD DOESN'T
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:58.010
  • SAY, "WHO DO YOU THINK YOU
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.050
  • ARE? YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:00.190
  • WRONG. YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:02.150
  • TO EVEN BE ALIVE." NO, GOD
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:03.280
  • WILL DO FOR YOU WHAT HE DID
  • 00:08:03.280 --> 00:08:05.080
  • FOR JONAH. AS SOON AS JONAH
  • 00:08:05.080 --> 00:08:07.150
  • GOT THROUGH PRAYING, THE
  • 00:08:07.150 --> 00:08:09.000
  • SCRIPTURE SAYS GOD CAUSED
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:10.180
  • THE FISH TO SPIT HIM UP ONTO
  • 00:08:10.180 --> 00:08:12.230
  • DRY GROUND, ONTO THAT BEACH.
  • 00:08:12.230 --> 00:08:15.050
  • FRIENDS, GOD CONTROLS THE
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.090
  • WHOLE UNIVERSE. GOD CAN CAUSE
  • 00:08:16.090 --> 00:08:18.170
  • WHATEVER'S HOLDING YOU BACK
  • 00:08:18.170 --> 00:08:20.010
  • RIGHT NOW, THE DYSFUNCTION,
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:21.220
  • THE ADDICTION, THE SICKNESS,
  • 00:08:21.220 --> 00:08:23.030
  • THE LEGAL PROBLEM, GOD CAN
  • 00:08:23.030 --> 00:08:24.170
  • CAUSE IT IN A SPLIT SECOND TO
  • 00:08:24.170 --> 00:08:26.190
  • SET YOU FREE. TO RELEASE IT'S
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:28.090
  • HOLD. GOD IS IN CONTROL EVEN
  • 00:08:28.090 --> 00:08:30.190
  • OF OUR ENEMIES. AND JONAH CAME
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:33.110
  • OUT OF THIS WHALE, WASHED
  • 00:08:33.110 --> 00:08:34.200
  • HIMSELF OFF, THRILLED TO BE
  • 00:08:34.200 --> 00:08:36.150
  • ALIVE. HE KNEW IT WAS THE
  • 00:08:36.150 --> 00:08:38.120
  • MERCY OF GOD. AND THAT COULD
  • 00:08:38.120 --> 00:08:40.150
  • HAVE BEEN THE END OF THE STORY.
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:41.280
  • THAT WOULD BE GREAT. GOD
  • 00:08:41.280 --> 00:08:43.100
  • RESCUED HIM, SAVED HIM FROM
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:44.270
  • TROUBLE. BUT GOD DOESN'T WANT
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:47.000
  • TO JUST BRING YOU OUT.
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:48.200
  • IF YOU'LL HAVE THE RIGHT
  • 00:08:48.200 --> 00:08:49.250
  • ATTITUDE, SHAKE OFF THE GUILT,
  • 00:08:49.250 --> 00:08:52.080
  • GET YOUR PASSION BACK, GOD
  • 00:08:52.080 --> 00:08:54.030
  • WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER CHANCE
  • 00:08:54.030 --> 00:08:56.080
  • TO GET TO WHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:57.130
  • SUPPOSED TO BE. THAT MISTAKE
  • 00:08:57.130 --> 00:08:59.200
  • DID NOT DISQUALIFY YOU. YOU
  • 00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:02.010
  • DIDN'T MISS YOUR DESTINY
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:03.190
  • BECAUSE YOU HAD A DETOUR.
  • 00:09:03.190 --> 00:09:06.070
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THE WORD
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:07.120
  • OF THE LORD CAME TO JONAH
  • 00:09:07.120 --> 00:09:09.260
  • A SECOND TIME. WHAT DID GOD
  • 00:09:09.260 --> 00:09:11.290
  • SAY? "JONAH, I WANT YOU TO GO
  • 00:09:11.290 --> 00:09:13.220
  • TO NINEVEH"; THE SAME THING
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:15.140
  • HE SAID THE FIRST TIME.
  • 00:09:15.140 --> 00:09:17.160
  • IN OTHER WORDS, GOD DIDN'T
  • 00:09:17.160 --> 00:09:18.190
  • SAY, "JONAH, I ASKED YOU TO
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:20.060
  • DO THIS ONCE BUT BOY YOU
  • 00:09:20.060 --> 00:09:21.160
  • ABOUT WORE ME OUT. I HAD TO
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:23.180
  • GET UP OFF THE THRONE, GO
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:24.210
  • FIND THAT FISH. JONAH, YOU
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:26.050
  • JUST SIT ON THE SIDELINES.
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:27.160
  • I'M GOING TO FIND SOMEBODY
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:28.120
  • ELSE."
  • 00:09:28.120 --> 00:09:29.180
  • NO, GOD WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:31.000
  • ANOTHER CHANCE, AND ANOTHER
  • 00:09:31.000 --> 00:09:32.130
  • CHANCE AND ANOTHER CHANCE TO
  • 00:09:32.130 --> 00:09:34.020
  • FULFILL THE BEST PLAN THAT HE
  • 00:09:34.020 --> 00:09:36.030
  • HAS FOR YOUR LIFE. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:39.160
  • IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO BECOME
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:41.040
  • WHO GOD CREATED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:44.130
  • IF YOU WILL START WHERE YOU
  • 00:09:44.130 --> 00:09:45.080
  • ARE, HONORING GOD, BEING YOUR
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:47.180
  • BEST, SERVING OTHERS, THE
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:49.240
  • RIGHT DOORS WILL OPEN, THE
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:51.120
  • RIGHT PEOPLE WILL SHOW UP.
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:53.070
  • GOD KNOWS HOW TO MAKE UP
  • 00:09:53.070 --> 00:09:54.180
  • FOR LOST TIME. HE CAN GET YOU
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:56.040
  • TO WHERE HE WANTS YOU TO BE.
  • 00:09:56.040 --> 00:09:58.070
  • AND THE SECOND TIME GOD ASKED,
  • 00:09:58.070 --> 00:10:00.080
  • JONAH WENT TO THE CITY OF
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:01.200
  • NINEVEH. HE OBEYED AND HE SAW
  • 00:10:01.200 --> 00:10:04.000
  • GOD DO AMAZING THINGS. THE
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:06.010
  • POINT IS JONAH MADE A WRONG
  • 00:10:06.010 --> 00:10:07.270
  • TURN BUT THAT DID NOT STOP
  • 00:10:07.270 --> 00:10:10.010
  • HIS DESTINY. GOD SAID, "JONAH,
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:12.230
  • YOU HAD A DETOUR BUT THAT'S
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:14.000
  • OKAY. I'VE GOT YOU COVERED.
  • 00:10:14.000 --> 00:10:16.130
  • MY MERCY IS BIGGER THAN THAT
  • 00:10:16.130 --> 00:10:18.110
  • MISTAKE. I STILL WANT YOU TO
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:19.210
  • GO TO NINEVEH. I STILL WANT
  • 00:10:19.210 --> 00:10:21.090
  • YOU TO FULFILL MY BEST PLAN

  • FOR YOUR LIFE." AND MAYBE LIKE
  • 00:10:23.130 --> 00:10:25.180
  • JONAH, YOU'VE MADE SOME
  • 00:10:25.180 --> 00:10:26.270
  • MISTAKES, TAKEN SOME WRONG
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:28.180
  • TURNS. IT'S EASY TO SIT ON
  • 00:10:28.180 --> 00:10:30.140
  • THE SIDELINES OF LIFE AND
  • 00:10:30.140 --> 00:10:32.010
  • THINK LIKE, "OH JOEL, I CAN'T
  • 00:10:32.010 --> 00:10:33.150
  • EXPECT GOD TO BLESS ME. YOU
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:35.010
  • DON'T KNOW WHAT I'VE DONE.
  • 00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:36.220
  • I BLEW MY MARRIAGE. I'VE GOT
  • 00:10:36.220 --> 00:10:38.050
  • THESE ADDICTIONS. FAILED IN
  • 00:10:38.050 --> 00:10:39.260
  • BUSINESS. MADE A LOT OF POOR
  • 00:10:39.260 --> 00:10:41.080
  • CHOICES." NO, YOU ARE NO
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:42.280
  • DIFFERENT THAN JONAH. YOU CAN
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:44.230
  • EITHER SIT THERE ON THE BEACH
  • 00:10:44.230 --> 00:10:46.290
  • SO TO SPEAK AND JUST BE GLAD
  • 00:10:46.290 --> 00:10:47.290
  • YOU'RE ALIVE. OR YOU CAN RISE
  • 00:10:47.290 --> 00:10:49.240
  • UP LIKE HE DID AND SAY, "GOD,
  • 00:10:49.240 --> 00:10:51.190
  • I BLEW IT. I DON'T DESERVE IT.
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:53.220
  • BUT I KNOW SALVATION AND
  • 00:10:53.220 --> 00:10:55.170
  • DELIVERANCE COMES FROM YOU.
  • 00:10:55.170 --> 00:10:57.220
  • LORD, I BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN

  • TURN THIS MESS AROUND AND

  • STILL HELP ME BECOME WHO YOU
  • 00:11:00.120 --> 00:11:02.090
  • CREATED ME TO BE." IF YOU'LL
  • 00:11:02.090 --> 00:11:04.170
  • HAVE AN ATTITUDE LIKE THAT,
  • 00:11:04.170 --> 00:11:06.130
  • THE WORD OF THE LORD WILL
  • 00:11:06.130 --> 00:11:07.210
  • COME TO YOU A SECOND TIME.

  • GOD HAS YOU COVERED. HE'S
  • 00:11:19.280 --> 00:11:21.150
  • SAYING TO YOU WHAT HE SAID
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:22.250
  • TO JONAH. "I STILL WANT YOU
  • 00:11:22.250 --> 00:11:24.290
  • TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:11:24.290 --> 00:11:26.160
  • I STILL WANT YOU TO HAVE A
  • 00:11:26.160 --> 00:11:27.210
  • GREAT MARRIAGE. I STILL WANT

  • YOU TO LIVE HAPPY, HEALTHY,

  • DESTINY FOR YOU TO FULFILL."
  • 00:11:31.230 --> 00:11:34.160
  • AND WE CAN ALL LOOK BACK IN
  • 00:11:34.160 --> 00:11:35.110
  • LIFE AND SEE TIMES WHERE WE
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:37.030
  • MADE THE MESS BUT GOD CLEANED
  • 00:11:37.030 --> 00:11:39.060
  • IT UP. WE LOST OUR TEMPER AND
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:41.250
  • SAID SOME THINGS THAT GOT US
  • 00:11:41.250 --> 00:11:42.270
  • INTO TROUBLE. WE SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:11:42.270 --> 00:11:44.090
  • LOST OUR JOB, BUT GOD SHOWED
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:46.040
  • US MERCY, CLEANED UP THE MESS,
  • 00:11:46.040 --> 00:11:48.010
  • WE STILL HAVE IT TODAY. OR WE
  • 00:11:48.010 --> 00:11:50.070
  • WERE UNFAITHFUL IN A
  • 00:11:50.070 --> 00:11:51.020
  • RELATIONSHIP. WE SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:11:51.020 --> 00:11:52.190
  • LOST OUR MARRIAGE. WE MADE
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:54.050
  • THE MESS, BUT GOD SHOWED US
  • 00:11:54.050 --> 00:11:56.010
  • MERCY, CLEANED IT UP. TODAY

  • WE'RE RESTORED WITH A HEALTHY,
  • 00:11:57.240 --> 00:11:59.130
  • HAPPY FAMILY. AND A LOT OF
  • 00:11:59.130 --> 00:12:01.100
  • TIMES WHEN PEOPLE SEE US
  • 00:12:01.100 --> 00:12:02.200
  • BLESSED, ENJOYING LIFE, THEY
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:04.240
  • THINK IT'S BECAUSE WE DID
  • 00:12:04.240 --> 00:12:06.060
  • EVERYTHING RIGHT. WE DIDN'T
  • 00:12:06.060 --> 00:12:07.160
  • MAKE ANY MISTAKES. BUT THE
  • 00:12:07.160 --> 00:12:09.010
  • TRUTH IS THERE WERE TIMES WE
  • 00:12:09.010 --> 00:12:10.280
  • MADE A WRONG TURN LIKE JONAH
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:13.160
  • BUT GOD CAUSED IT TO TURN OUT
  • 00:12:13.160 --> 00:12:15.060
  • RIGHT. WE TOOK THE WRONG JOB,
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:17.110
  • WE GOT INVOLVED WITH THE WRONG
  • 00:12:17.110 --> 00:12:18.230
  • PEOPLE. WE SAID THE WRONG
  • 00:12:18.230 --> 00:12:20.010
  • THINGS BUT GOD CAUSED IT TO
  • 00:12:20.010 --> 00:12:22.030
  • ALL WORK TOGETHER FOR OUR
  • 00:12:22.030 --> 00:12:23.130
  • GOOD. THERE WERE SOME MOUNTAINS
  • 00:12:23.130 --> 00:12:25.280
  • WE KNEW WE WEREN'T SUPPOSED
  • 00:12:25.280 --> 00:12:28.070
  • TO CLIMB. BUT THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:30.170
  • LOOKED SO GOOD WE DID IT
  • 00:12:30.170 --> 00:12:32.070
  • ANYWAY. WE GOT HALFWAY UP AND
  • 00:12:32.070 --> 00:12:34.160
  • REALIZED "THIS IS NOT WHAT I
  • 00:12:34.160 --> 00:12:36.190
  • THOUGHT IT SHOULD BE." I CAN
  • 00:12:36.190 --> 00:12:38.210
  • THANK GOD THAT HE BROUGHT ME
  • 00:12:38.210 --> 00:12:40.080
  • OFF OF MOUNTAINS THAT I WAS
  • 00:12:40.080 --> 00:12:41.220
  • NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE ON IN
  • 00:12:41.220 --> 00:12:43.090
  • THE FIRST PLACE. HE COULD
  • 00:12:43.090 --> 00:12:44.210
  • HAVE LEFT US THERE AND SAID,
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:45.250
  • "HEY, LEARN YOUR LESSON. MAYBE
  • 00:12:45.250 --> 00:12:46.260
  • NEXT TIME." NO, THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:12:46.260 --> 00:12:48.040
  • IS WE'VE BEEN COVERED BY MERCY.
  • 00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:50.090
  • ONE TIME, THIS BUSINESS
  • 00:12:50.090 --> 00:12:51.280
  • OPPORTUNITY CAME ALONG AND IT
  • 00:12:51.280 --> 00:12:54.090
  • WAS SO APPEALING TO ME, I DIDN'T
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:56.040
  • HAVE TO PRAY ABOUT IT. I DIDN'T
  • 00:12:56.040 --> 00:12:57.120
  • HAVE TO THINK TWICE. I KNEW IT
  • 00:12:57.120 --> 00:12:59.030
  • WAS SOMETHING I WANTED TO
  • 00:12:59.030 --> 00:13:00.060
  • PURSUE. AND IT TOOK ABOUT SIX
  • 00:13:00.060 --> 00:13:02.020
  • MONTHS TO COME TOGETHER.
  • 00:13:02.020 --> 00:13:04.140
  • ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS, THERE
  • 00:13:04.140 --> 00:13:06.080
  • WERE THESE SMALL SIGNS THAT
  • 00:13:06.080 --> 00:13:07.220
  • SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT.
  • 00:13:07.220 --> 00:13:09.110
  • I COULD FEEL THAT UNEASINESS
  • 00:13:09.110 --> 00:13:10.280
  • SAYING, "JOEL, DON'T DO IT.
  • 00:13:10.280 --> 00:13:12.060
  • IT'S NOT WHAT IT SEEMS."
  • 00:13:12.060 --> 00:13:13.230
  • I DIDN'T PAY ANY ATTENTION.
  • 00:13:13.230 --> 00:13:15.130
  • I WANTED IT SO BADLY, I PUSHED
  • 00:13:15.130 --> 00:13:16.280
  • THROUGH IT. WE GOT IT UP AND
  • 00:13:16.280 --> 00:13:18.180
  • GOING BUT IT NEVER TOOK OFF
  • 00:13:18.180 --> 00:13:20.210
  • LIKE WE THOUGHT. THERE WERE
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:22.080
  • SOME CIRCUMSTANCES WE DIDN'T
  • 00:13:22.080 --> 00:13:23.200
  • REALIZE THAT WOULD LIMIT IT.
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:26.180
  • AND WE HAD A LOT INVESTED AND
  • 00:13:26.180 --> 00:13:27.200
  • WE STRUGGLED AND STRUGGLED,
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:28.260
  • TRIED TO MAKE IT WORK. BUT IT
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:30.140
  • WAS LIKE WE WERE ALWAYS
  • 00:13:30.140 --> 00:13:31.130
  • PUSHING IT UPHILL. AND WHEN I
  • 00:13:31.130 --> 00:13:33.110
  • LOOK BACK, I CAN SEE HOW GOD
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:35.000
  • TRIED TO WARN ME, TRIED TO
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:36.210
  • GET MY ATTENTION. I COULD
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:37.290
  • FEEL THAT UNREST BUT I DIDN'T
  • 00:13:37.290 --> 00:13:39.170
  • LISTEN. GOD COULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:13:39.170 --> 00:13:41.130
  • "JOEL, WELL MAYBE NEXT TIME
  • 00:13:41.130 --> 00:13:43.020
  • YOU WILL LISTEN. TOO BAD FOR
  • 00:13:43.020 --> 00:13:43.290
  • YOU." NO, GOD IS NOT HOLDING
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:46.030
  • THAT AGAINST US. IF GOD ONLY
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:48.130
  • GAVE US WHAT WE DESERVED,
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:50.060
  • NONE OF US WOULD FULFILL OUR
  • 00:13:50.060 --> 00:13:51.160
  • DESTINY. AND ONE DAY, OUT OF
  • 00:13:51.160 --> 00:13:53.170
  • THE BLUE, WE GOT WORD THAT
  • 00:13:53.170 --> 00:13:55.080
  • THIS MAN WAS INTERESTED IN
  • 00:13:55.080 --> 00:13:56.200
  • PURCHASING IT. THE EXPERTS
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:58.220
  • SAID IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.
  • 00:13:58.220 --> 00:14:00.060
  • HE WASN'T THE RIGHT TYPE OF
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:01.090
  • BUYER. HE WASN'T EVEN IN THE
  • 00:14:01.090 --> 00:14:02.220
  • SAME FIELD. BUT AGAINST ALL
  • 00:14:02.220 --> 00:14:04.190
  • ODDS, HE NOT ONLY PURCHASED
  • 00:14:04.190 --> 00:14:06.190
  • IT BUT HE PAID ALMOST TWICE
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:08.270
  • WHAT WE WERE TOLD WE COULD
  • 00:14:08.270 --> 00:14:10.180
  • SELL IT FOR. THAT'S THE MERCY
  • 00:14:10.180 --> 00:14:12.170
  • OF GOD CLEANING UP THE MESS.
  • 00:14:12.170 --> 00:14:15.000
  • GOD DOESN'T GIVE US WHAT WE
  • 00:14:15.000 --> 00:14:16.260
  • DESERVE. WE DESERVE THE
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:18.080
  • CONSEQUENCES. WE DESERVE
  • 00:14:18.080 --> 00:14:20.010
  • JUDGMENT. BUT GOD GIVES US
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:22.010
  • MERCY. HE KNOWS HOW TO MAKE
  • 00:14:22.010 --> 00:14:24.160
  • MIRACLES OUT OF OUR MISTAKES.
  • 00:14:24.180 --> 00:14:27.180
  • THE ACCUSING VOICES WILL TELL
  • 00:14:27.180 --> 00:14:28.180
  • YOU, "MAN, YOU ARE DONE. IT
  • 00:14:28.180 --> 00:14:30.130
  • WAS YOUR FAULT. YOU KNEW NOT
  • 00:14:30.130 --> 00:14:32.000
  • TO DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:33.270
  • YOU PURSUED THE WRONG DREAM.
  • 00:14:33.270 --> 00:14:35.070
  • NOW LOOK AT YOU. YOU'RE OVER
  • 00:14:35.070 --> 00:14:36.080
  • YOUR HEAD. YOU CAN'T MAKE
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:37.200
  • ENDS MEET. JUST DEAL WITH IT."
  • 00:14:37.200 --> 00:14:39.160
  • NO, GOD IS SO MERCIFUL. HE'LL
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:41.160
  • TAKE YOUR WRONG AND HE'LL
  • 00:14:41.160 --> 00:14:43.030
  • MAKE IT RIGHT. IT MAY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:44.240
  • YOUR FAULT. YOU COULD EASILY
  • 00:14:44.240 --> 00:14:46.150
  • LIVE GUILTY. NO, YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:14:46.150 --> 00:14:48.040
  • SHAKE THAT OFF. GOD'S MERCY IS
  • 00:14:48.040 --> 00:14:50.050
  • BIGGER THAN THAT MISTAKE.
  • 00:14:50.050 --> 00:14:52.090
  • HE KNOWS HOW TO MAKE A MIRACLE
  • 00:14:52.090 --> 00:14:53.260
  • OUT OF THAT MESS.
  • 00:14:53.260 --> 00:14:56.010
  • SEE, COVERED BY MERCY MEANS
  • 00:14:56.010 --> 00:14:57.100
  • YOU'RE NOT JUST COVERED AS
  • 00:14:57.100 --> 00:14:58.240
  • LONG AS YOU DO EVERYTHING
  • 00:14:58.240 --> 00:15:00.030
  • RIGHT. LIKE JONAH, YOU'RE
  • 00:15:00.030 --> 00:15:02.010
  • COVERED EVEN WHEN YOU GO
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:03.290
  • THE WRONG WAY. LET ME MAKE IT
  • 00:15:03.290 --> 00:15:05.280
  • MORE PRACTICAL. EVEN WHEN WE
  • 00:15:05.280 --> 00:15:07.190
  • DO DUMB THINGS, GOD STILL HAS
  • 00:15:07.190 --> 00:15:09.260
  • US COVERED. THAT SHOULD MAKE
  • 00:15:09.260 --> 00:15:11.180
  • US ALL FEEL BETTER.
  • 00:15:11.180 --> 00:15:13.250
  • I READ ABOUT THIS YOUNG MAN,
  • 00:15:13.250 --> 00:15:15.060
  • 21 YEARS OLD. HE WAS RAISED
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:16.240
  • IN CHURCH. HE KNEW THE RIGHT
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:18.130
  • THING TO DO. BUT HE GOT OFF
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:20.240
  • COURSE, STARTED PARTYING AND
  • 00:15:20.240 --> 00:15:22.070
  • RUNNING WITH THE WRONG CROWD.
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:24.090
  • AND ONE NIGHT WHEN HE'D HAD
  • 00:15:24.090 --> 00:15:25.210
  • WAY TOO MUCH TO DRINK, HIS
  • 00:15:25.210 --> 00:15:27.120
  • FRIENDS DARED HIM TO CLIMB A
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:29.080
  • TELEPHONE POLE. HE WASN'T
  • 00:15:29.080 --> 00:15:31.160
  • THINKING CLEARLY AND HE
  • 00:15:31.160 --> 00:15:32.290
  • CLIMBED UP 40 FEET IN THE AIR,
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:35.050
  • DRUNK AS CAN BE. AND JUST AS
  • 00:15:35.050 --> 00:15:36.260
  • HE WAS ABOUT TO REACH THE TOP,
  • 00:15:36.260 --> 00:15:38.170
  • HE LOST HIS FOOTING, SLIPPED,
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:40.040
  • AND FELL BACKWARDS.
  • 00:15:40.040 --> 00:15:42.100
  • TUMBLING BACK ON A WAY TO A
  • 00:15:42.100 --> 00:15:43.220
  • CERTAIN DEATH, SOMEHOW THE
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:45.230
  • LEATHER BELT THAT HE WAS
  • 00:15:45.230 --> 00:15:47.040
  • WEARING CAUGHT ONE OF THE
  • 00:15:47.040 --> 00:15:49.110
  • METAL RODS ON THE POLE AND IT
  • 00:15:49.110 --> 00:15:51.010
  • ACTED LIKE A HARNESS AND SAVED
  • 00:15:51.010 --> 00:15:52.150
  • HIS LIFE. HE WAS UP THERE
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:54.020
  • DANGLING IN THE MIDDLE OF
  • 00:15:54.020 --> 00:15:55.100
  • THE NIGHT. THE FIRE DEPART-
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:57.000
  • MENT CAME AND RESCUED HIM.
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:15:58.140
  • THE NEWSPAPER HEADLINE READ,
  • 00:15:58.140 --> 00:15:59.180
  • "PANTS SAVE DRUNK MAN FROM A
  • 00:15:59.180 --> 00:16:01.110
  • FALL." THAT'S THE MERCY OF
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:04.040
  • GOD. EVEN WHEN WE DO DUMB
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:05.270
  • THINGS, GOD STILL HAS US
  • 00:16:05.270 --> 00:16:07.110
  • COVERED. BOTTOM LINE: IF IT'S
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:10.100
  • NOT YOUR TIME TO GO, YOU'RE
  • 00:16:10.100 --> 00:16:12.030
  • NOT GOING TO GO. NOTHING CAN
  • 00:16:12.030 --> 00:16:14.120
  • SNATCH YOU OUT OF GOD'S HAND.
  • 00:16:14.120 --> 00:16:16.230
  • YOU MIGHT AS WELL QUIT
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:17.280
  • FIGHTING THE CALL OF GOD ON
  • 00:16:17.280 --> 00:16:19.070
  • YOUR LIFE. GOD IS NOT GOING
  • 00:16:19.070 --> 00:16:21.090
  • TO LEAVE YOU ALONE. WHEREVER
  • 00:16:21.090 --> 00:16:23.020
  • YOU GO, HE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:23.020 --> 00:16:23.280
  • THERE. THE SCRIPTURE SAYS,
  • 00:16:23.280 --> 00:16:25.230
  • "GOD'S CALLING IS IRREVOCABLE."
  • 00:16:25.230 --> 00:16:28.150
  • THAT MEANS YOU'RE A MARKED
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:29.260
  • MAN. YOU'RE A MARKED WOMAN.
  • 00:16:29.260 --> 00:16:31.250
  • GOD WANTS YOU. YOU CAN TRY
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:33.160
  • TO IGNORE IT. RUN. HIDE.
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:35.250
  • PARTY IT AWAY. DRINK IT AWAY.
  • 00:16:35.250 --> 00:16:37.150
  • AFTER ALL THAT, GOD'S GOING
  • 00:16:37.150 --> 00:16:38.280
  • TO STILL BE THERE SAYING,
  • 00:16:38.280 --> 00:16:40.090
  • "I WANT YOU TO GO TO NINEVEH.
  • 00:16:40.090 --> 00:16:41.280
  • I'VE GOT SOMETHING FOR YOU
  • 00:16:41.280 --> 00:16:43.110
  • TO DO. I'VE GOT A DESTINY FOR
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:44.090
  • YOU TO FULFILL." SEE, YOU HAVE
  • 00:16:44.090 --> 00:16:46.180
  • AN ASSIGNMENT. SOMEBODY NEEDS
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:49.040
  • WHAT YOU HAVE. AND IF YOU
  • 00:16:49.040 --> 00:16:51.160
  • DON'T STEP IN TO WHO GOD'S
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:52.210
  • MADE YOU TO BE, THIS WORLD
  • 00:16:52.210 --> 00:16:54.100
  • WILL NOT BE AS BRIGHT A PLACE
  • 00:16:54.100 --> 00:16:55.250
  • AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. WE'LL
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:57.190
  • ALL MISS OUT. AND WHEN I SAY
  • 00:16:57.190 --> 00:16:59.070
  • WE'RE COVERED BY MERCY, THAT
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:01.150
  • DOESN'T MEAN WE CAN JUST LIVE
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:02.240
  • ANY WAY WE WANT, BE SLOPPY,
  • 00:17:02.240 --> 00:17:05.010
  • COMPROMISE, TAKE THE EASY WAY
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:06.130
  • OUT. JOEL SAID GOD WILL CLEAN
  • 00:17:06.130 --> 00:17:08.130
  • IT UP. HE'LL CATCH ME EVEN
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:10.060
  • WHEN I'M DRUNK. NO, SOME OF
  • 00:17:10.060 --> 00:17:11.290
  • YOU THINK YOU GOT YOUR WORD
  • 00:17:11.290 --> 00:17:12.280
  • FROM THE LORD. LET ME CLARIFY
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:13.260
  • THIS. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:13.260 --> 00:17:15.290
  • WHEN YOU REALLY KNOW GOD, WHEN
  • 00:17:15.290 --> 00:17:17.230
  • YOU HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH
  • 00:17:17.230 --> 00:17:18.250
  • HIS SON JESUS, YOU WANT TO DO
  • 00:17:18.250 --> 00:17:20.230
  • WHAT'S RIGHT. YOU MAY MAKE
  • 00:17:20.230 --> 00:17:22.190
  • MISTAKES FROM TIME TO TIME,
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:24.110
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT TRYING TO SEE
  • 00:17:24.110 --> 00:17:26.070
  • HOW MUCH YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:28.150
  • AND STILL FEEL GOOD ABOUT
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:30.030
  • YOURSELF. DEEP DOWN, YOU HAVE
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:31.210
  • A DESIRE TO HONOR GOD, TO BE
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:33.110
  • YOUR BEST. AND THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:17:33.110 --> 00:17:35.020
  • SAYS HERE IN TITUS: "GOD SAVED
  • 00:17:35.020 --> 00:17:37.170
  • US NOT BECAUSE OF THE GOOD
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:39.190
  • THINGS WE'VE DONE BUT BECAUSE
  • 00:17:39.190 --> 00:17:41.200
  • OF HIS MERCY." THIS IS THE
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:44.010
  • KEY: HIS MERCY IS NOT BASED
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:46.040
  • ON OUR PERFORMANCE. IF IT WAS
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:48.160
  • ONLY DEPENDENT ON US LIVING A
  • 00:17:48.160 --> 00:17:50.180
  • PERFECT LIFE, NEVER MAKING A
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:51.290
  • MISTAKE, THEN NONE OF US WOULD
  • 00:17:51.290 --> 00:17:53.210
  • BE HERE. YOU MAY NOT HAVE BEEN
  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:55.090
  • SAVED BY YOUR PANTS FROM A
  • 00:17:55.090 --> 00:17:56.250
  • TELEPHONE POLE. BUT I WONDER
  • 00:17:56.250 --> 00:17:58.190
  • HOW MANY TIMES GOD HAS SAVED
  • 00:17:58.190 --> 00:18:00.160
  • US FROM DUMB THINGS THAT
  • 00:18:00.160 --> 00:18:01.250
  • WE'VE DONE. I CAN ADMIT I'VE
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:03.270
  • DONE A FEW. AND DON'T LOOK AT
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:05.140
  • ME LIKE THAT, I KNOW I'M A
  • 00:18:05.140 --> 00:18:06.190
  • SAINT COMPARED TO YOU.
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:08.140
  • (LAUGHTER) BUT EVERY MORNING
  • 00:18:08.140 --> 00:18:10.080
  • I START OFF THE DAY BY
  • 00:18:10.080 --> 00:18:11.230
  • THANKING GOD FOR HIS GOODNESS,
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:14.130
  • FOR HIS BLESSINGS, HIS FAVOR,
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:15.230
  • MY FAMILY, MY FRIENDS, THE
  • 00:18:15.230 --> 00:18:17.140
  • OPPORTUNITY HE'S GIVEN ME.
  • 00:18:17.140 --> 00:18:19.150
  • THEN I ALWAYS FOLLOW IT UP BY
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:20.290
  • THANKING HIM FOR HIS MERCY.
  • 00:18:20.290 --> 00:18:23.080
  • FOR THE TIMES I DIDN'T MAKE
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:24.210
  • THE BEST DECISION BUT HE
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:26.080
  • CLEANED IT UP. THE TIMES I DID
  • 00:18:26.080 --> 00:18:27.220
  • SOMETHING DUMB, HE BROUGHT ME
  • 00:18:27.220 --> 00:18:29.180
  • OUT OF THE MESS. THE TIMES HE
  • 00:18:29.180 --> 00:18:31.090
  • PROTECTED ME THAT I KNEW
  • 00:18:31.090 --> 00:18:33.000
  • NOTHING ABOUT. HE KEPT THE CAR
  • 00:18:33.000 --> 00:18:35.180
  • FROM COLLIDING WITH MINE. HE
  • 00:18:35.180 --> 00:18:37.100
  • KEPT MY CHILD FROM HARM. HE
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:38.130
  • SAVED ME FROM PAIN AND
  • 00:18:38.130 --> 00:18:40.040
  • HEARTACHE. THERE ARE MANY
  • 00:18:40.040 --> 00:18:41.150
  • THINGS THAT WE CANNOT SEE
  • 00:18:41.150 --> 00:18:43.060
  • BUT GOD IS HOLDING BACK THE
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:44.240
  • FORCES OF DARKNESS, KEEPING
  • 00:18:44.240 --> 00:18:46.160
  • US FROM ACCIDENTS AND HARM,
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:48.130
  • MOVING THE WRONG PEOPLE OUT
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:49.170
  • OF THE WAY. CAUSING THINGS
  • 00:18:49.170 --> 00:18:51.090
  • TO WORK OUT TO OUR ADVANTAGE.
  • 00:18:51.090 --> 00:18:53.150
  • HE'S GOT YOU COVERED WITH HIS
  • 00:18:53.150 --> 00:18:54.290
  • MERCY. AND THE BEAUTY IS NOT
  • 00:18:54.290 --> 00:18:56.270
  • JUST WHEN WE PERFORM
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:58.270
  • PERFECTLY, NOT JUST WHEN WE
  • 00:18:58.270 --> 00:19:00.170
  • MEASURE UP, BUT EVEN WHEN WE
  • 00:19:00.170 --> 00:19:02.060
  • BLOW IT, EVEN WHEN WE FAIL.
  • 00:19:02.060 --> 00:19:04.130
  • EVEN WHEN WE DO LIKE JONAH
  • 00:19:04.130 --> 00:19:06.040
  • AND SAY, "GOD, LEAVE ME ALONE.
  • 00:19:06.040 --> 00:19:07.180
  • LET ME DO MY OWN THING."
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:09.090
  • YOU'RE STILL COVERED. YOU MAY
  • 00:19:09.090 --> 00:19:11.010
  • TURN YOUR BACK ON GOD BUT HE'LL
  • 00:19:11.010 --> 00:19:12.270
  • NEVER TURN HIS BACK ON YOU.
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:14.250
  • YOU MAY RUN THE OTHER WAY,
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:15.270
  • BUT GOD WILL COME RUNNING
  • 00:19:15.270 --> 00:19:16.290
  • TOWARD YOU. SOMETIMES PEOPLE
  • 00:19:16.290 --> 00:19:19.060
  • SAY, "JOEL, I'VE MADE SO MANY
  • 00:19:19.060 --> 00:19:20.130
  • MISTAKES, SO MANY POOR
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:21.250
  • CHOICES, I THINK I'VE MISSED
  • 00:19:21.250 --> 00:19:23.110
  • MY DESTINY." I ALWAYS TELL
  • 00:19:23.110 --> 00:19:25.110
  • THEM, "YOU'RE NOT THAT
  • 00:19:25.110 --> 00:19:26.220
  • POWERFUL. YOU THINK YOUR
  • 00:19:26.220 --> 00:19:28.220
  • POOR CHOICES CAN STOP WHAT
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:30.130
  • THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE,
  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:32.010
  • THE MOST HIGH GOD HAS
  • 00:19:32.010 --> 00:19:33.280
  • ORDAINED FOR YOU." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:33.280 --> 00:19:36.220
  • "YOU THINK THAT MISTAKE IS
  • 00:19:36.220 --> 00:19:38.050
  • TOO MUCH FOR THE MERCY OF GOD.
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:41.020
  • THAT SOMEHOW GOD IS NOW
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:42.040
  • CONFUSED, TRYING TO FIGURE
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:43.160
  • OUT WHAT TO DO WITH YOU NEXT."
  • 00:19:43.160 --> 00:19:45.210
  • NO, GOD KNOWS THE END FROM
  • 00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:47.060
  • THE BEGINNING. NOTHING YOU'VE
  • 00:19:47.060 --> 00:19:48.290
  • DONE HAS TO KEEP YOU FROM
  • 00:19:48.290 --> 00:19:50.230
  • BECOMING WHO GOD'S CREATED
  • 00:19:50.230 --> 00:19:52.180
  • YOU TO BE. BUT YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:54.150
  • TO DO YOUR PART AND GET BACK
  • 00:19:54.150 --> 00:19:55.230
  • IN THE GAME. START HONORING
  • 00:19:55.230 --> 00:19:57.190
  • GOD WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART AND
  • 00:19:57.190 --> 00:19:59.170
  • HE'LL GET YOU TO WHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:19:59.170 --> 00:20:00.220
  • SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:20:00.220 --> 00:20:02.230
  • DR. JOHN REDMAN IS A PASTOR
  • 00:20:02.230 --> 00:20:04.010
  • FRIEND OF MINE AND HE TOLD
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:05.230
  • ABOUT THIS WOMAN THAT HE KNEW
  • 00:20:05.230 --> 00:20:07.120
  • THAT WAS VERY, VERY DEPRESSED.
  • 00:20:07.120 --> 00:20:09.080
  • IT KEPT GETTING WORSE AND
  • 00:20:09.080 --> 00:20:10.190
  • FINALLY SHE COULDN'T TAKE IT
  • 00:20:10.190 --> 00:20:12.050
  • ANYMORE. SHE DECIDED TO END
  • 00:20:12.050 --> 00:20:13.220
  • HER LIFE. SHE WENT TO BED ON
  • 00:20:13.220 --> 00:20:15.280
  • A SATURDAY NIGHT AND WAS GOING
  • 00:20:15.280 --> 00:20:17.160
  • TO DO IT THE NEXT MORNING. SHE
  • 00:20:17.160 --> 00:20:19.080
  • HAS A LITTLE DOG THAT SLEEPS
  • 00:20:19.080 --> 00:20:20.190
  • WITH HER. HE WOKE UP EARLY
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:22.160
  • SUNDAY MORNING AND STARTED
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:23.170
  • SCRATCHING AND SCRATCHING,
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:25.080
  • TRYING TO WAKE HER UP SO HE
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:26.090
  • COULD GO OUTSIDE. WHILE HE WAS
  • 00:20:26.090 --> 00:20:28.000
  • DOING THAT, HE HIT THE REMOTE
  • 00:20:28.000 --> 00:20:30.010
  • CONTROL FOR THE TELEVISION
  • 00:20:30.010 --> 00:20:31.030
  • AND TURNED IT ON. IT JUST SO
  • 00:20:31.030 --> 00:20:33.080
  • HAPPENED THAT OUR PROGRAM
  • 00:20:33.080 --> 00:20:35.000
  • CAME ON THE TELEVISION. SHE
  • 00:20:35.000 --> 00:20:37.000
  • STARTED WATCHING AND I WAS
  • 00:20:37.000 --> 00:20:38.080
  • TALKING ABOUT HOW GOD HAS
  • 00:20:38.080 --> 00:20:39.290
  • YOUR BEST DAYS STILL IN FRONT
  • 00:20:39.290 --> 00:20:41.030
  • OF YOU. YOU WOULDN'T BE ALIVE
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:42.080
  • UNLESS SOMETHING AMAZING WAS
  • 00:20:42.080 --> 00:20:43.200
  • IN YOUR FUTURE. SHE KNEW IT
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:45.060
  • WASN'T A COINCIDENCE.
  • 00:20:45.060 --> 00:20:47.120
  • SOMETHING BEGAN TO COME ALIVE
  • 00:20:47.120 --> 00:20:48.270
  • ON THE INSIDE. AT THE END OF
  • 00:20:48.270 --> 00:20:50.080
  • THE PROGRAM, I ALWAYS ENCOURAGE
  • 00:20:50.080 --> 00:20:52.140
  • PEOPLE TO GET INTO A GOOD BIBLE
  • 00:20:52.140 --> 00:20:53.220
  • BASED CHURCH. THAT SUNDAY
  • 00:20:53.220 --> 00:20:55.150
  • MORNING, SHE WENT TO
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:56.120
  • DR. REDMAN'S CHURCH AND GAVE
  • 00:20:56.120 --> 00:20:58.040
  • HER LIFE TO CHRIST, GOT HER
  • 00:20:58.040 --> 00:20:59.160
  • JOY BACK, HER PASSION BACK.
  • 00:20:59.160 --> 00:21:01.150
  • NOW, SHE'S EXCITED ABOUT HER
  • 00:21:01.150 --> 00:21:02.260
  • FUTURE. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:02.260 --> 00:21:04.140
  • FRIENDS, GOD'S MERCY IS BIGGER
  • 00:21:04.140 --> 00:21:06.130
  • THAN OUR POOR CHOICES. IF IT'S
  • 00:21:06.130 --> 00:21:08.120
  • NOT YOUR TIME TO GO, GOD CAN
  • 00:21:08.120 --> 00:21:09.260
  • EVEN USE A DOG TO GET YOU BACK
  • 00:21:09.260 --> 00:21:12.120
  • ON THE RIGHT TRACK. HE'S GOT
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:13.230
  • YOU COVERED WITH HIS MERCY.
  • 00:21:13.230 --> 00:21:15.210
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE WHEN GOD
  • 00:21:15.210 --> 00:21:17.200
  • PROMISED ABRAHAM THAT HE WAS
  • 00:21:17.200 --> 00:21:20.010
  • GOING TO HAVE A BABY, HE AND
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:21.090
  • HIS WIFE SARAH WERE NEARLY
  • 00:21:21.090 --> 00:21:23.010
  • 80-WAY TOO OLD TO HAVE A CHILD.
  • 00:21:23.010 --> 00:21:25.180
  • THEY WAITED AND WAITED
  • 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:26.180
  • BELIEVING THAT SOMEHOW IT WOULD
  • 00:21:26.180 --> 00:21:27.200
  • HAPPEN. BUT YEAR AFTER YEAR
  • 00:21:27.200 --> 00:21:29.140
  • WENT BY AND STILL NO BABY.
  • 00:21:29.140 --> 00:21:31.000
  • AND SARAH GOT TIRED OF WAITING.
  • 00:21:31.000 --> 00:21:33.120
  • TALKING ABOUT MAKING A BAD
  • 00:21:33.120 --> 00:21:34.170
  • CHOICE, DOING SOMETHING DUMB.
  • 00:21:34.170 --> 00:21:37.090
  • SHE TOLD ABRAHAM TO SLEEP WITH
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:39.060
  • HER MAID, HAGAR. AND THEY HAD
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:41.180
  • A BABY, ABRAHAM AND HAGAR,
  • 00:21:41.180 --> 00:21:43.200
  • THAT THEY NAMED ISHMAEL. BUT
  • 00:21:43.200 --> 00:21:45.140
  • THIS WAS NOT THE PROMISED
  • 00:21:45.140 --> 00:21:46.150
  • CHILD. AND THIS BROUGHT ALL
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:48.030
  • KINDS OF DYSFUNCTION INTO
  • 00:21:48.030 --> 00:21:50.050
  • THEIR HOUSE. SARAH GOT MAD
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:52.000
  • AT ABRAHAM AND SAID, "WHAT
  • 00:21:52.000 --> 00:21:53.180
  • WERE YOU THINKING?" ABRAHAM
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:54.270
  • SAID, "WELL, YOU TOLD ME TO
  • 00:21:54.270 --> 00:21:55.210
  • DO IT." SHE SAID, "WELL, YOU
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:57.140
  • SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER
  • 00:21:57.140 --> 00:21:58.180
  • ANYWAY." SARAH BECAME VERY
  • 00:21:58.180 --> 00:22:00.150
  • JEALOUS OF HAGAR AND STARTED
  • 00:22:00.150 --> 00:22:02.130
  • TREATING HER REALLY BADLY.
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:04.210
  • FINALLY, SHE GAVE ABRAHAM AN
  • 00:22:04.210 --> 00:22:05.190
  • ULTIMATUM. EITHER THIS WOMAN
  • 00:22:05.190 --> 00:22:07.090
  • LEAVES OR I'M GOING TO LEAVE.
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:09.130
  • ABRAHAM HAD TO SEND HAGAR
  • 00:22:09.130 --> 00:22:11.040
  • AND HIS YOUNG SON, ISHMAEL,
  • 00:22:11.040 --> 00:22:13.200
  • OUT INTO THE DESERT. IT WAS A
  • 00:22:13.200 --> 00:22:15.170
  • BIG MESS. GOD COULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:22:15.170 --> 00:22:18.020
  • "SARAH, TOO BAD. IT'S YOUR
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:19.070
  • FAULT. YOU BROUGHT THE
  • 00:22:19.070 --> 00:22:21.000
  • TROUBLE ON YOURSELF. YOU WERE
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:22.000
  • IMPATIENT. YOU SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:22:22.000 --> 00:22:23.180
  • JUST WAITED. BUT NO, EVEN
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:25.150
  • THOUGH SARAH MADE A MISTAKE-
  • 00:22:25.150 --> 00:22:27.140
  • I SAY IT RESPECTFULLY, EVEN
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:28.270
  • THOUGH SHE DID SOMETHING DUMB,
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:30.150
  • THAT DID NOT CANCEL OUT THE
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:32.160
  • PROMISE. IN THE NATURAL, SHE
  • 00:22:32.160 --> 00:22:33.280
  • WAS WAY TOO OLD. BUT ONE DAY
  • 00:22:33.280 --> 00:22:36.200
  • GOD GAVE HER A BABY. SHE HAD
  • 00:22:36.200 --> 00:22:38.100
  • ISAAC, THE PROMISED CHILD.
  • 00:22:38.100 --> 00:22:40.150
  • WHAT AM I SAYING? THEY MADE A
  • 00:22:40.150 --> 00:22:42.040
  • BIG MESS OF THINGS BUT GOD
  • 00:22:42.040 --> 00:22:44.060
  • NOT ONLY CLEANED UP THE MESS,
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:45.280
  • HE MADE A MIRACLE OUT OF THEIR
  • 00:22:45.280 --> 00:22:47.060
  • MISTAKE.
  • 00:22:47.060 --> 00:22:49.080
  • NOW, HERE'S HOW AMAZING GOD IS.
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:51.050
  • HAGAR, THE MAID. SHE DIDN'T DO
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:22:53.160
  • ANYTHING WRONG. BUT HER WHOLE
  • 00:22:53.160 --> 00:22:55.000
  • WORLD FELL APART. SHE WAS
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:57.020
  • LIVING OUT IN THE DESERT WITH
  • 00:22:57.020 --> 00:22:59.160
  • HER SON, WHO EVERYONE CALLED
  • 00:22:59.160 --> 00:23:00.270
  • A MISTAKE; HE WASN'T THE
  • 00:23:00.270 --> 00:23:02.200
  • PROMISED CHILD. SHE DIDN'T
  • 00:23:02.200 --> 00:23:04.140
  • KNOW HOW SHE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:23:04.140 --> 00:23:05.170
  • SURVIVE. BUT GOD SAID, "HAGAR
  • 00:23:05.170 --> 00:23:07.030
  • DON'T WORRY. I'M GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:23:07.030 --> 00:23:09.080
  • CARE OF YOU. AND YOUR SON,
  • 00:23:09.080 --> 00:23:10.230
  • WHO PEOPLE THINK IS A MISTAKE,
  • 00:23:10.230 --> 00:23:12.290
  • I'M GOING TO BRING OUT OF HIM
  • 00:23:12.290 --> 00:23:14.270
  • A GREAT NATION." GOD IS SO
  • 00:23:14.270 --> 00:23:17.040
  • MERCIFUL; OUT OF A GREAT MESS,
  • 00:23:17.040 --> 00:23:19.130
  • HE BROUGHT GREATNESS.
  • 00:23:19.190 --> 00:23:22.190
  • HE WAS SAYING, "HAGAR, I'M NOT
  • 00:23:22.190 --> 00:23:23.210
  • GOING TO LET OTHER PEOPLE'S
  • 00:23:23.210 --> 00:23:25.000
  • POOR CHOICES RUIN YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:23:25.000 --> 00:23:27.130
  • SEE, IT'S ONE THING WHEN WE
  • 00:23:27.130 --> 00:23:28.270
  • MAKE THE MESS AND WE HAVE TO
  • 00:23:28.270 --> 00:23:30.100
  • DEAL WITH IT. WE CAN
  • 00:23:30.100 --> 00:23:31.080
  • UNDERSTAND THAT. WE BROUGHT
  • 00:23:31.080 --> 00:23:32.140
  • THE TROUBLE ON OURSELVES. BUT
  • 00:23:32.140 --> 00:23:34.050
  • WHEN SOMEBODY ELSE MAKES THE
  • 00:23:34.050 --> 00:23:35.130
  • MESS AND IT AFFECTS US, THAT
  • 00:23:35.130 --> 00:23:37.200
  • DOESN'T SEEM FAIR. ISHMAEL
  • 00:23:37.200 --> 00:23:39.210
  • COULDN'T CHOOSE WHO HIS PARENTS
  • 00:23:39.210 --> 00:23:40.290
  • WOULD BE. HE COULDN'T CHOOSE
  • 00:23:40.290 --> 00:23:42.170
  • WHERE HE WOULD BE BORN.
  • 00:23:42.170 --> 00:23:44.080
  • HAGAR DIDN'T ASK TO HAVE A BABY
  • 00:23:44.080 --> 00:23:45.240
  • WITH ABRAHAM. SHE WAS JUST
  • 00:23:45.240 --> 00:23:47.160
  • FOLLOWING ORDERS. DOING WHAT
  • 00:23:47.160 --> 00:23:48.240
  • SHE WAS TOLD.
  • 00:23:48.240 --> 00:23:50.180
  • AND YOU MAY BE IN A MESS TODAY
  • 00:23:50.180 --> 00:23:51.230
  • AND IT WAS SOMEBODY ELSE'S
  • 00:23:51.230 --> 00:23:53.120
  • FAULT. THEY CAUSED YOU TO BE
  • 00:23:53.120 --> 00:23:54.240
  • AT A DISADVANTAGE. BUT BE
  • 00:23:54.240 --> 00:23:56.220
  • ENCOURAGED. GOD IS SAYING TO
  • 00:23:56.220 --> 00:23:58.170
  • YOU WHAT HE SAID TO HAGAR AND
  • 00:23:58.170 --> 00:24:00.190
  • ISHMAEL, OTHER PEOPLE'S
  • 00:24:00.190 --> 00:24:02.030
  • MISTAKES ARE NOT GOING TO RUIN

  • THIS, GOD HAS YOU COVERED.
  • 00:24:07.190 --> 00:24:10.000
  • HE'S GOING TO BRING GREATNESS
  • 00:24:10.000 --> 00:24:11.160

  • HAVE MADE A POOR CHOICE LIKE
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:18.230
  • SARAH, BUT GOD IS STILL GOING
  • 00:24:18.230 --> 00:24:20.050
  • TO BRING THE PROMISE TO PASS.
  • 00:24:20.050 --> 00:24:22.060
  • YOU MAY HAVE TAKEN A WRONG
  • 00:24:22.060 --> 00:24:23.080
  • TURN LIKE JONAH, BUT GOD'S

  • TURN OUT RIGHT.

  • MAYBE SOMEBODY ELSE'S CHOICE
  • 00:24:27.180 --> 00:24:29.130
  • HAS HAD A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON

  • YOU. BUT DON'T WORRY. GOD'S
  • 00:24:30.220 --> 00:24:32.130
  • GOING TO TURN IT AROUND AND

  • USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.
  • 00:24:33.210 --> 00:24:35.150
  • SHAKE OFF THE GUILT. QUIT
  • 00:24:35.150 --> 00:24:36.210
