  • FUNNY.
  • 00:00:25.230 --> 00:00:26.260
  • I HEARD ABOUT THIS MAN.
  • 00:00:26.260 --> 00:00:28.030
  • HE WAS OUT TAKING A WALK THROUGH
  • 00:00:28.030 --> 00:00:29.100
  • THE WOODS WITH A FRIEND WHEN ALL
  • 00:00:29.100 --> 00:00:31.020
  • OF A SUDDEN THEY ENCOUNTERED A
  • 00:00:31.020 --> 00:00:32.180
  • HUGE GRIZZLY BEAR ABOUT 20 YARDS
  • 00:00:32.180 --> 00:00:34.110
  • IN FRONT OF THEM.
  • 00:00:34.110 --> 00:00:36.090
  • THEY FROZE IN THEIR TRACKS.
  • 00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:38.160
  • AS THE BEAR INTENTLY STARED THEM
  • 00:00:38.160 --> 00:00:39.230
  • DOWN THEY CONTEMPLATED WHAT THEY
  • 00:00:39.230 --> 00:00:41.180
  • SHOULD DO.
  • 00:00:41.180 --> 00:00:43.100
  • FINALLY THE MAN WHISPERED TO HIS
  • 00:00:43.100 --> 00:00:44.160
  • FRIEND, "I THINK WE SHOULD RUN."
  • 00:00:44.160 --> 00:00:46.190
  • HIS FRIEND SAID, "ARE YOU CRAZY?
  • 00:00:46.190 --> 00:00:48.030
  • WE CAN'T OUTRUN A GRIZZLY BEAR."
  • 00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:50.020
  • THE MAN SAID, "I KNOW THAT.
  • 00:00:50.020 --> 00:00:51.150
  • I DON'T HAVE TO OUTRUN HIM.
  • 00:00:51.150 --> 00:00:52.220
  • I JUST HAVE TO OUTRUN YOU."
  • 00:00:52.220 --> 00:00:54.100
  • (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:54.100 --> 00:00:55.260
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLES.
  • 00:00:55.260 --> 00:00:56.200
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:00:56.200 --> 00:00:57.180
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:00:57.180 --> 00:00:59.040
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:00:59.040 --> 00:01:00.150
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:00.150 --> 00:01:02.030
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:02.030 --> 00:01:04.100
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:04.100 --> 00:01:05.090
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:05.090 --> 00:01:06.270
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS:
  • 00:01:06.270 --> 00:01:08.070
  • MY MIND IS ALERT.
  • 00:01:08.070 --> 00:01:09.150
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:09.150 --> 00:01:11.030
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 00:01:11.030 --> 00:01:12.210
  • IN JESUS' NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:12.210 --> 00:01:14.250
  • .
  • 00:01:14.250 --> 00:01:16.110
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:16.110 --> 00:01:17.110
  • ABOUT UNSHAKEABLE FAITH.
  • 00:01:17.110 --> 00:01:20.030
  • WHEN GOD PUTS A PROMISE IN YOUR
  • 00:01:20.030 --> 00:01:21.240
  • HEART YOU HAVE TO COME TO THE
  • 00:01:21.240 --> 00:01:23.120
  • PLACE WHERE YOU BELIEVE IT'S
  • 00:01:23.120 --> 00:01:24.190
  • GOING TO HAPPEN SO STRONGLY,
  • 00:01:24.190 --> 00:01:26.230
  • NOTHING CAN TALK YOU OUT OF IT.
  • 00:01:26.230 --> 00:01:28.260
  • IT MAY SEEM IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:01:28.260 --> 00:01:30.230
  • THE MEDICAL REPORT MAY SAY,
  • 00:01:30.230 --> 00:01:32.100
  • "THERE'S NO WAY YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:33.230
  • GET WELL."
  • 00:01:33.230 --> 00:01:34.280
  • THE FINANCIAL SITUATION SAYS,
  • 00:01:34.280 --> 00:01:36.150
  • "BUSINESS IS SO SLOW.
  • 00:01:36.150 --> 00:01:38.070
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE IT."
  • 00:01:38.070 --> 00:01:39.270
  • ALL THE CIRCUMSTANCES MAY TELL
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:41.170
  • YOU, "YOU'LL NEVER ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:01:41.170 --> 00:01:43.070
  • YOUR DREAMS, NEVER MEET THE
  • 00:01:43.070 --> 00:01:44.270
  • RIGHT PERSON, NEVER SEE YOUR
  • 00:01:44.270 --> 00:01:46.060
  • FAMILY RESTORED."
  • 00:01:46.060 --> 00:01:48.060
  • BUT DEEP DOWN YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:49.250
  • THIS CONFIDENCE, THIS KNOWING,
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:51.250
  • THAT GOD IS STILL ON THE THRONE.
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:54.200
  • HE IS BIGGER THAN ANY OBSTACLE.
  • 00:01:54.200 --> 00:01:57.020
  • HE ALREADY HAS A WAY AND AT THE
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:58.280
  • EXACT TIME WHAT HE PROMISED WILL
  • 00:01:58.280 --> 00:02:01.100
  • COME TO PASS.
  • 00:02:01.100 --> 00:02:03.060
  • YOU HAVE THIS UNSHAKEABLE
  • 00:02:03.060 --> 00:02:04.060
  • CONFIDENCE.
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:06.150
  • YOU KNOW THAT GOD IS FIGHTING
  • 00:02:06.150 --> 00:02:08.050
  • YOUR BATTLES, ARRANGING THINGS
  • 00:02:08.050 --> 00:02:09.260
  • IN YOUR FAVOR, MAKING A WAY EVEN
  • 00:02:09.260 --> 00:02:11.290
  • WHEN YOU DON'T SEE A WAY.
  • 00:02:11.290 --> 00:02:14.090
  • INSTEAD OF BEING DISCOURAGED,
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:15.250
  • YOU GET UP IN THE MORNING
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:17.020
  • THANKING GOD THAT THE ANSWER IS
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:18.100
  • ON THE WAY.
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:20.040
  • INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT HOW BIG
  • 00:02:20.040 --> 00:02:21.110
  • THE PROBLEM IS, YOU GO THROUGH
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:23.030
  • THE DAY TALKING ABOUT HOW BIG
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:24.200
  • YOUR GOD IS.
  • 00:02:24.200 --> 00:02:26.180
  • WHEN THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS COME
  • 00:02:26.180 --> 00:02:28.010
  • SAYING, "IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:02:28.010 --> 00:02:29.170
  • IT'S BEEN TOO LONG,"
  • 00:02:29.170 --> 00:02:31.160
  • YOU LET THAT GO IN ONE EAR AND
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:33.030
  • OUT THE OTHER.
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:34.130
  • YOUR MIND IS SET IN ONE
  • 00:02:34.130 --> 00:02:35.280
  • DIRECTION: VICTORY, FAVOR,
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:38.140
  • HEALING, RESTORATION.
  • 00:02:38.140 --> 00:02:40.160
  • YOU KNOW THE MOMENT YOU PRAYED
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:42.020
  • GOD SET THE MIRACLE INTO MOTION.
  • 00:02:42.020 --> 00:02:44.210
  • IT MAY BE TAKING A LONG TIME BUT
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:46.110
  • GOD DIDN'T BRING YOU THIS FAR TO
  • 00:02:46.110 --> 00:02:48.000
  • LEAVE YOU.
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:49.130
  • YOU'VE SEEN HIM DO IT IN THE
  • 00:02:49.130 --> 00:02:50.170
  • PAST AND YOU KNOW HE WILL DO IT
  • 00:02:50.170 --> 00:02:51.290
  • AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:54.060
  • YOU ARE FULLY PERSUADED.
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:55.290
  • THAT'S UNSHAKEABLE FAITH.
  • 00:02:55.290 --> 00:02:57.250
  • AND THE FACT IS, SOME PROMISES
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:02:59.080
  • DO TAKE A LONG TIME.
  • 00:02:59.080 --> 00:03:01.140
  • IF GOD MADE EVERYTHING HAPPEN
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:03.170
  • WHEN WE WANTED IT TO HAPPEN IT
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:05.020
  • WOULDN'T TAKE ANY FAITH.
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:06.250
  • WE GROW IN THE DIFFICULT TIMES.
  • 00:03:06.260 --> 00:03:09.260
  • WE GROW WHEN OUR FAITH IS BEING
  • 00:03:09.260 --> 00:03:11.220
  • STRETCHED, WHEN WE HAVE TO
  • 00:03:11.220 --> 00:03:13.070
  • BELIEVE WHEN WE DON'T SEE ANY
  • 00:03:13.070 --> 00:03:14.220
  • REASON TO BELIEVE, WHEN WE STAY
  • 00:03:14.220 --> 00:03:16.250
  • IN FAITH WHEN OUR MIND IS
  • 00:03:16.250 --> 00:03:18.160
  • TELLING US WE'RE WASTING OUR
  • 00:03:18.160 --> 00:03:20.060
  • TIME, WHEN WE GIVE GOD PRAISE
  • 00:03:20.060 --> 00:03:22.070
  • BUT WE REALLY FEEL LIKE
  • 00:03:22.070 --> 00:03:23.260
  • COMPLAINING.
  • 00:03:23.260 --> 00:03:25.030
  • THAT'S PASSING THE TEST.
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:26.260
  • EVERY DAY YOU DO THAT YOUR FAITH
  • 00:03:26.260 --> 00:03:28.260
  • IS NOT ONLY INCREASING, YOUR
  • 00:03:28.260 --> 00:03:30.230
  • CHARACTER IS NOT ONLY BEING
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:32.180
  • DEVELOPED, BUT YOU ARE ONE DAY
  • 00:03:32.180 --> 00:03:35.010
  • CLOSER TO SEEING THE PROMISE
  • 00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:36.150
  • COME TO PASS.
  • 00:03:36.150 --> 00:03:38.010
  • SOME OF YOU WERE ABOUT TO GIVE
  • 00:03:38.010 --> 00:03:39.180
  • UP ON A PROMISE BUT GOD HAS YOU
  • 00:03:39.180 --> 00:03:41.100
  • HERE FOR A REASON.
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:43.060
  • YOU NEED TO DIG YOUR HEELS IN.
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:44.220
  • PUT ON A NEW ATTITUDE.
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:46.200
  • GOD IS SAYING, "EVERY PROMISE
  • 00:03:46.200 --> 00:03:48.240
  • I'VE SPOKEN OVER YOU, EVERY
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:50.140
  • DREAM I'VE PLACED IN YOUR
  • 00:03:50.140 --> 00:03:52.140
  • SPIRIT, EVEN THE SECRET
  • 00:03:52.140 --> 00:03:54.030
  • PETITIONS OF YOUR HEART, THE
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:56.080
  • DREAMS YOU HAVEN'T TOLD ANYONE
  • 00:03:56.080 --> 00:03:57.120
  • ABOUT, I STILL HAVE EVERY
  • 00:03:57.120 --> 00:03:59.170
  • INTENTION OF BRINGING THEM TO
  • 00:03:59.170 --> 00:04:01.050
  • PASS."
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:02.170
  • FRIENDS, GOD IS A FAITHFUL GOD.
  • 00:04:02.170 --> 00:04:04.230
  • IT MAY NOT HAVE HAPPENED ON YOUR
  • 00:04:04.230 --> 00:04:06.000
  • TIMETABLE BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:04:06.000 --> 00:04:07.220
  • IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:04:07.220 --> 00:04:09.250
  • GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY.
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:11.240
  • NOW DON'T YOU DARE GIVE UP ON
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:12.200
  • THAT PROMISE.
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.110
  • DON'T LET DISCOURAGEMENT,
  • 00:04:14.110 --> 00:04:15.150
  • NEGATIVE THOUGHTS, TALK YOU OUT
  • 00:04:15.150 --> 00:04:16.270
  • OF IT.
  • 00:04:16.270 --> 00:04:18.080
  • GET YOUR FIRE BACK.
  • 00:04:18.080 --> 00:04:19.030
  • GET YOUR PASSION BACK.
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:21.020
  • IF GOD SAID IT HE WILL DO IT.
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:23.020
  • IF GOD SPOKE IT HE WILL BRING IT
  • 00:04:23.020 --> 00:04:24.000
  • TO PASS.
  • 00:04:24.000 --> 00:04:25.170
  • NOW DO YOUR PART AND HAVE
  • 00:04:25.170 --> 00:04:26.160
  • UNSHAKEABLE FAITH.
  • 00:04:26.160 --> 00:04:28.130
  • THIS IS WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:29.150
  • DID.
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:30.290
  • HE SAID, "NONE OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:04:30.290 --> 00:04:31.290
  • MOVE ME."
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.210
  • WHAT WERE "THESE THINGS?"
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:35.200
  • CIRCUMSTANCES THAT LOOKED
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.100
  • IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.210
  • PEOPLE TRYING TO TALK HIM OUT OF
  • 00:04:37.210 --> 00:04:38.170
  • IT.
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:39.200
  • NEGATIVE, DISCOURAGING THOUGHTS.
  • 00:04:39.200 --> 00:04:41.160
  • HIS ATTITUDE WAS, "THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:43.010
  • CHANGE MY MIND. I'M NOT MOVED
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:44.220
  • BY WHAT I SEE. I'M MOVED BY
  • 00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:46.270
  • WHAT I KNOW AND I KNOW IF GOD
  • 00:04:46.270 --> 00:04:48.270
  • BE FOR ME WHO DARE BE AGAINST
  • 00:04:48.270 --> 00:04:51.180
  • ME? I KNOW ALL OF GOD'S
  • 00:04:51.180 --> 00:04:53.140
  • PROMISES ARE YES AND AMEN.
  • 00:04:53.140 --> 00:04:55.150
  • I KNOW GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY."
  • 00:04:55.150 --> 00:04:58.090
  • THAT'S THE ATTITUDE WE SHOULD
  • 00:04:58.090 --> 00:04:59.070
  • HAVE.
  • 00:04:59.070 --> 00:05:00.210
  • "I'M NOT MOVED BY THIS MEDICAL

  • ME GET WELL BUT I KNOW GOD CAN

  • DO WHAT MEDICAL SCIENCE CANNOT
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:09.280
  • DO. GOD MADE MY BODY. DOCTORS
  • 00:05:09.280 --> 00:05:12.140
  • CAN TREAT ME BUT ONLY GOD CAN
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:14.050
  • HEAL ME."

  • 00:05:30.050 --> 00:05:31.120
  • OFF COURSE, MAKING POOR
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:32.260
  • CHOICES. I KNOW IT'S ONLY A
  • 00:05:32.260 --> 00:05:35.030
  • MATTER OF TIME. AS FOR ME AND
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:36.190
  • MY HOUSE WE WILL SERVE THE
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:38.100
  • LORD."
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:39.190
  • OR FOR SOME OF YOU, "I'M NOT
  • 00:05:39.190 --> 00:05:40.190
  • MOVED BY THE FACT THAT I'M
  • 00:05:40.190 --> 00:05:42.000
  • SINGLE AND I HAVEN'T MET ANYONE.
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:44.180
  • I KNOW GOD HAS ALREADY PICKED
  • 00:05:44.180 --> 00:05:46.190
  • OUT THE RIGHT PERSON. HE HAS
  • 00:05:46.190 --> 00:05:48.240
  • ALREADY ORDAINED HIM TO COME
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:50.000
  • ACROSS MY PATH. I AM FULLY
  • 00:05:50.000 --> 00:05:51.140
  • PERSUADED THEY ARE IN MY
  • 00:05:51.140 --> 00:05:52.280
  • FUTURE."
  • 00:05:52.280 --> 00:05:54.150
  • THAT'S UNSHAKEABLE FAITH.
  • 00:05:54.150 --> 00:05:56.160
  • YOU'RE NOT MOVED BY YOUR
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:05:58.140
  • CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:05:59.100
  • UP WHEN SOMETHING GOOD HAS
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:00.080
  • HAPPENED. DOWN WHEN YOU DON'T
  • 00:06:00.080 --> 00:06:01.050
  • SEE ANYTHING HAPPENING.
  • 00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:02.100
  • NO, YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW, THAT
  • 00:06:02.100 --> 00:06:04.120
  • YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING GOD
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:06.050
  • PROMISED YOU IS ALREADY IN YOUR
  • 00:06:06.050 --> 00:06:07.200
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:10.000
  • THIS IS WHAT ABRAHAM DID.
  • 00:06:10.000 --> 00:06:11.090
  • GOD GAVE HIM A PROMISE THAT HE
  • 00:06:11.090 --> 00:06:11.270
  • WOULD HAVE A CHILD.
  • 00:06:11.270 --> 00:06:13.180
  • IN THE NATURAL IT WAS
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:14.180
  • IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:16.040
  • HE AND HIS WIFE, SARAH, WERE
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:17.090
  • NEARLY 100 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:06:17.090 --> 00:06:19.210
  • BUT IT SAYS IN ROMANS 4,
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:21.180
  • "ABRAHAM DID NOT WAVER IN FAITH
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:24.230
  • BUT HE WAS FULLY PERSUADED GOD
  • 00:06:24.230 --> 00:06:26.220
  • WOULD DO WHAT HE PROMISED."
  • 00:06:26.220 --> 00:06:29.090
  • HOW COULD ABRAHAM HAVE THIS
  • 00:06:29.090 --> 00:06:31.160
  • UNWAVERING FAITH WHEN ALL THE
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:33.080
  • ODDS WERE AGAINST HIM?
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:35.200
  • I COULD SEE HOW HE COULD HAVE A
  • 00:06:35.200 --> 00:06:36.250
  • GLIMMER OF HOPE BUT IT SAYS, "HE
  • 00:06:36.250 --> 00:06:38.150
  • WAS FULLY PERSUADED."
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:40.290
  • VERSE 19 GIVES US A SECRET.
  • 00:06:40.290 --> 00:06:43.070
  • "HE CONSIDERED NOT THE WEAKNESS
  • 00:06:43.070 --> 00:06:45.080
  • OF HIS OWN BODY NOR THE DEADNESS
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:47.020
  • OF SARAH'S WOMB."
  • 00:06:47.020 --> 00:06:49.240
  • THE KEY TO HAVING UNSHAKEABLE
  • 00:06:49.240 --> 00:06:51.130
  • FAITH IS DON'T CONSIDER YOUR
  • 00:06:51.130 --> 00:06:53.020
  • CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:55.000
  • CONSIDER YOUR GOD.
  • 00:06:55.000 --> 00:06:56.090
  • YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, LIKE SARAH'S
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:58.040
  • WOMB, MAY LOOK DEAD.
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:07:00.290
  • THE FINANCIAL SITUATION MAY LOOK
  • 00:07:00.290 --> 00:07:02.170
  • IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:07:02.170 --> 00:07:03.260
  • THE MEDICAL REPORT MAY SAY IT'S
  • 00:07:03.260 --> 00:07:04.270
  • HOPELESS.
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:06.100
  • ALL THE EXPERTS MAY TELL YOU,
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:07.180
  • "YOU COULD NEVER ACCOMPLISH YOUR
  • 00:07:07.180 --> 00:07:08.200
  • DREAMS."
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:10.060
  • IF YOU ONLY CONSIDER THAT,
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:11.280
  • YOU'LL GET DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:07:11.280 --> 00:07:13.180
  • BEFORE LONG, DOUBT WILL CREEP
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:14.210
  • IN.
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:15.230
  • THAT WILL KEEP YOU FROM GOD'S
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:16.210
  • BEST.
  • 00:07:16.210 --> 00:07:18.030
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DO LIKE ABRAHAM
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:19.100
  • AND SAY, "I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:20.180
  • CONSIDER JUST WHAT MY MIND, MY
  • 00:07:20.180 --> 00:07:22.200
  • THOUGHTS ARE TELLING ME.
  • 00:07:22.200 --> 00:07:24.070
  • I'M NOT GOING TO CONSIDER JUST
  • 00:07:24.070 --> 00:07:25.230
  • WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING.
  • 00:07:25.230 --> 00:07:27.280
  • I'M NOT GOING TO CONSIDER THE
  • 00:07:27.280 --> 00:07:29.180
  • SIZE OF MY PROBLEM.
  • 00:07:29.180 --> 00:07:31.080
  • I'M GOING TO CONSIDER THE SIZE
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:32.130
  • OF MY GOD.
  • 00:07:32.130 --> 00:07:34.000
  • HE SPOKE THE WORLDS INTO
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:35.110
  • EXISTENCE.
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:36.250
  • HE FLUNG THE STARS INTO SPACE.
  • 00:07:36.250 --> 00:07:38.020
  • HE IS NOT LIMITED BY THE
  • 00:07:38.020 --> 00:07:39.020
  • NATURAL.
  • 00:07:39.020 --> 00:07:40.100
  • HE HAS SUPERNATURAL POWER."
  • 00:07:40.100 --> 00:07:42.190
  • WHEN YOU CONSIDER GOD INSTEAD OF
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:44.020
  • YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, AMAZING
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:45.270
  • THINGS CAN HAPPEN.
  • 00:07:45.270 --> 00:07:48.080
  • I HAVE A FRIEND NAMED COURTNEY.
  • 00:07:48.080 --> 00:07:49.220
  • SHE ATTENDS HERE.
  • 00:07:49.220 --> 00:07:51.070
  • SHE APPLIED FOR A SCHOLARSHIP TO
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.140
  • A MAJOR UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:54.180
  • SHE'S GOING TO STUDY THEATER AND
  • 00:07:54.180 --> 00:07:56.070
  • THE ARTS AND ACTING.
  • 00:07:56.070 --> 00:07:58.060
  • TWENTY-SIX HUNDRED OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:07:58.060 --> 00:07:59.210
  • APPLIED BUT THERE WERE ONLY
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:01.140
  • TWELVE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE.
  • 00:08:01.140 --> 00:08:03.160
  • SHE COULD'VE THOUGHT, "OH,
  • 00:08:03.160 --> 00:08:04.210
  • GREAT.
  • 00:08:04.210 --> 00:08:05.120
  • WHAT'S THE USE OF EVEN TRYING?
  • 00:08:05.120 --> 00:08:06.240
  • THOSE ODDS ARE LESS THAN ONE
  • 00:08:06.240 --> 00:08:08.010
  • HALF OF ONE PERCENT; 0.5%."
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:12.070
  • BUT SHE DIDN'T CONSIDER THE
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:13.100
  • ODDS.
  • 00:08:13.100 --> 00:08:14.160
  • SHE CONSIDERED HER GOD.
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:16.150
  • HER ATTITUDE WAS, "GOD, YOU
  • 00:08:16.150 --> 00:08:17.260
  • CONTROL THE WHOLE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:19.230
  • IF YOU WANT ME IN THIS
  • 00:08:19.230 --> 00:08:20.200
  • UNIVERSITY, I KNOW YOU CAN CAUSE
  • 00:08:20.200 --> 00:08:22.070
  • ME TO STAND OUT.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:24.160
  • I'M NOT MOVED BY WHAT I SEE.
  • 00:08:24.160 --> 00:08:26.050
  • I'M MOVED BY WHAT I KNOW AND I
  • 00:08:26.050 --> 00:08:27.250
  • KNOW YOUR PLANS FOR ME ARE FOR
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:29.110
  • GOOD.
  • 00:08:29.110 --> 00:08:30.100
  • I KNOW YOU HAVE FAR AND BEYOND
  • 00:08:30.100 --> 00:08:31.190
  • FAVOR.
  • 00:08:31.190 --> 00:08:33.030
  • I KNOW YOU REWARD THOSE THAT
  • 00:08:33.030 --> 00:08:34.180
  • HONOR YOU."
  • 00:08:34.180 --> 00:08:36.020
  • A FEW MONTHS AGO, COURTNEY
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:37.170
  • RECEIVED NOTICE IN THE MAIL THAT
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:39.200
  • OUT OF THE 2.600 APPLICATIONS,
  • 00:08:39.200 --> 00:08:41.210
  • SHE WAS ONE OF THE TWELVE THAT
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:43.020
  • WERE CHOSEN.
  • 00:08:43.020 --> 00:08:44.090
  • SHE'S RIGHT HERE ON THE FRONT
  • 00:08:44.090 --> 00:08:44.270
  • ROW.
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:45.250
  • COURTNEY, VERY PROUD OF YOU.
  • 00:08:45.250 --> 00:08:47.020
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:47.020 --> 00:08:48.240
  • SOME OF YOU ARE SPENDING TOO
  • 00:08:48.240 --> 00:08:50.000
  • MUCH TIME ANALYZING YOUR
  • 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:51.160
  • SITUATION.
  • 00:08:51.160 --> 00:08:53.220
  • YOU HAVE SO MANY FACTS AND
  • 00:08:53.220 --> 00:08:54.270
  • FIGURES IT'S TALKING YOU OUT OF
  • 00:08:54.270 --> 00:08:56.110
  • WHAT GOD CAN DO.
  • 00:08:56.110 --> 00:08:58.180
  • IF YOU WOULD SPEND MORE TIME
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:08:59.250
  • CONSIDERING GOD, THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:08:59.250 --> 00:09:02.020
  • HIS GREATNESS, THE TIMES HE HAS
  • 00:09:02.020 --> 00:09:04.110
  • MADE A WAY IN THE PAST,
  • 00:09:04.110 --> 00:09:06.100
  • MEDITATING ON HIS PROMISES,
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:08.060
  • SPEAKING FAITH AND VICTORY OVER
  • 00:09:08.060 --> 00:09:09.220
  • YOUR LIFE, THEN LIKE COURTNEY,
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:11.270
  • LIKE ABRAHAM, YOU WOULD SEE GOD
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.210
  • SHOW UP AND DO SUPERNATURAL
  • 00:09:13.210 --> 00:09:14.180
  • THINGS.
  • 00:09:14.180 --> 00:09:16.150
  • I REMEMBER WHEN WE FIRST
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:17.200
  • ACQUIRED THIS NEW FACILITY, THE
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:19.070
  • FORMER COMPAQ CENTER.
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:21.000
  • I WAS TOLD BY OUR ARCHITECTS
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:22.270
  • THAT IT WOULD COST APPROXIMATELY
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:24.170
  • $100 MILLION DOLLARS TO
  • 00:09:24.170 --> 00:09:26.050
  • RENOVATE.
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:27.130
  • MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS, "HOW IN
  • 00:09:27.130 --> 00:09:28.120
  • THE WORLD WILL WE EVER BE ABLE
  • 00:09:28.120 --> 00:09:29.160
  • TO PAY FOR THIS?"
  • 00:09:29.160 --> 00:09:31.140
  • OUR TEAM RAN THE NUMBERS.
  • 00:09:31.140 --> 00:09:33.040
  • THEY PROJECTED FUTURE GIVING.
  • 00:09:33.040 --> 00:09:35.210
  • IF WE SOLD SOME PROPERTY AND
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:37.030
  • THINGS FELL INTO PLACE, WE
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:39.010
  • CALCULATED WE WOULD STILL BE
  • 00:09:39.010 --> 00:09:41.000
  • SIGNIFICANTLY SHORT.
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:43.280
  • I STUDIED THOSE NUMBERS AGAIN
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:45.050
  • AND AGAIN, SO MUCH SO, I'D WAKE
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:46.290
  • UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
  • 00:09:46.290 --> 00:09:48.180
  • DREAMING ABOUT THOSE NUMBERS.
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:50.170
  • I HAD ANALYZED THEM A THOUSAND
  • 00:09:50.170 --> 00:09:51.280
  • DIFFERENT WAYS.
  • 00:09:51.280 --> 00:09:53.190
  • NO MATTER HOW I LOOKED AT THEM
  • 00:09:53.190 --> 00:09:54.290
  • WE ALWAYS CAME UP SHORT.
  • 00:09:54.290 --> 00:09:57.090
  • ON PAPER, IT JUST WOULDN'T WORK
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:09:58.070
  • OUT.
  • 00:09:58.070 --> 00:09:59.280
  • ONE DAY I DID WHAT I'M ASKING
  • 00:09:59.280 --> 00:10:00.290
  • YOU TO DO.
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:03.120
  • I SAID, "GOD, I'VE CONSIDERED
  • 00:10:03.120 --> 00:10:04.030
  • THE NUMBERS.
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:05.220
  • I'VE CONSIDERED THE FACTS.
  • 00:10:05.220 --> 00:10:07.130
  • I'VE HAD VERY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:09.150
  • GIVE ME PROJECTIONS AND
  • 00:10:09.150 --> 00:10:10.170
  • ANALYSIS, AND GOD, IT DOESN'T
  • 00:10:10.170 --> 00:10:12.290
  • LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:14.210
  • BUT NOW I'M GOING TO CHANGE MY
  • 00:10:14.210 --> 00:10:16.050
  • FOCUS AND START CONSIDERING YOU.
  • 00:10:16.050 --> 00:10:18.270
  • GOD, I KNOW YOU PARTED THE RED
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:20.210
  • SEA FOR MOSES."
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:22.110
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:22.110 --> 00:10:23.070
  • "YOU STOPPED THE SUN FOR
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:24.040
  • JOSHUA. YOU PROTECTED DANIEL
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:26.110
  • FROM HUNGRY LIONS. YOU TOOK
  • 00:10:26.110 --> 00:10:28.070
  • FIVE LOAVES AND FED 5.000.
  • 00:10:28.070 --> 00:10:30.290
  • YOU TURNED WATER INTO WINE.
  • 00:10:30.290 --> 00:10:32.230
  • THAT WAS BACK IN BIBLE DAYS.
  • 00:10:32.230 --> 00:10:34.210
  • BUT GOD, IN MY OWN LIFE I'VE
  • 00:10:34.210 --> 00:10:36.010
  • SEEN YOU HEAL MY MOTHER OF
  • 00:10:36.010 --> 00:10:37.180
  • TERMINAL CANCER."
  • 00:10:37.180 --> 00:10:39.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:40.000
  • YOU BROUGHT MY FATHER OUT OF
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:41.160
  • DEFEAT AND POVERTY INTO A LIFE
  • 00:10:41.160 --> 00:10:43.090
  • OF ABUNDANCE AND PURPOSE.
  • 00:10:43.090 --> 00:10:45.250
  • YOU SPARED MY LIFE ON THE
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:47.130
  • FREEWAY WHEN MY CAR WAS SPINNING
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:49.000

  • FINALLY, THESE PEOPLE CAME UP
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:07.230
  • AND SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, "TELL

  • YOU DON'T GO AROUND DEFEATED,
  • 00:14:37.290 --> 00:14:39.180
  • THINKING, "AH, GREAT. I KNEW I
  • 00:14:39.180 --> 00:14:40.250
  • WOULDN'T GET WELL. LOOK AT THIS

  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:44.110
  • NO, THAT MAY BE ONE REPORT BUT
  • 00:14:44.110 --> 00:14:45.290
  • GOD HAS ANOTHER REPORT.

  • HEALTH UNTO YOU AND HEALING YOU

  • OF YOUR WOUNDS."
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:57.280
  • THE QUESTION IS, "WHOSE REPORT
  • 00:14:57.280 --> 00:14:59.010
  • ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE?"
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:02.130
  • THE FINANCIAL REPORT MAY SAY,

  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:10.140
  • THAT'S ONE REPORT.
  • 00:15:10.140 --> 00:15:12.000
  • DON'T DENY IT BUT CHOOSE TO

  • 00:16:13.020 --> 00:16:14.170
  • THE TIME TO GO FISHING."
  • 00:16:14.190 --> 00:16:17.190
  • FOR SOME PEOPLE, THE PROBLEM IS
  • 00:16:17.190 --> 00:16:19.060
  • THEY KNOW TOO MUCH.
  • 00:16:19.060 --> 00:16:21.060
  • OUR INTELLECT CAN TALK US OUT OF
  • 00:16:21.060 --> 00:16:23.120
  • WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO.
  • 00:16:23.120 --> 00:16:25.220
  • I TOLD A STORY ONCE ABOUT A LADY
  • 00:16:25.220 --> 00:16:27.130
  • THAT OVERCAME CANCER THREE
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:28.170
  • TIMES.
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:30.040
  • AFTER THE SERVICE ANOTHER LADY
  • 00:16:30.040 --> 00:16:31.160
  • CAME UP AND SAID, "JOEL, I LIKE
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:32.200
  • THAT STORY BUT THE TYPE OF
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:34.210
  • CANCER I HAVE IS VERY RARE; LESS
  • 00:16:34.210 --> 00:16:37.040
  • THAN 1% OF ALL CANCER.
  • 00:16:37.040 --> 00:16:39.240
  • THERE'S NO TREATMENT FOR IT.
  • 00:16:39.240 --> 00:16:41.080
  • THE AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY IS
  • 00:16:41.080 --> 00:16:42.220
  • THIS LONG."
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:43.290
  • ON AND ON, IN GREAT DETAIL, SHE
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:46.030
  • TOLD ME ALL THE REASONS WHY SHE
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:48.120
  • COULDN'T GET WELL AND STORY
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:49.240
  • AFTER STORY OF PEOPLE THAT HAD
  • 00:16:49.240 --> 00:16:51.170
  • NOT MADE IT AND HOW THERE WAS NO
  • 00:16:51.170 --> 00:16:54.170
  • MEDICINE THAT COULD AFFECT THIS
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:55.230
  • TYPE OF CANCER.
  • 00:16:55.230 --> 00:16:57.160
  • WHEN SHE GOT FINISHED SHE HAD
  • 00:16:57.160 --> 00:16:58.180
  • CONVINCED ME. I WAS DEPRESSED
  • 00:16:58.180 --> 00:16:59.240
  • TOO. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:02.090
  • I WASN'T EVEN SICK. I WAS READY
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:03.030
  • TO PLAN MY FUNERAL. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:03.030 --> 00:17:05.110
  • WHAT WAS HER PROBLEM?
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:06.260
  • SHE KNOWS TOO MUCH.
  • 00:17:06.260 --> 00:17:08.230
  • SHE HAS ANALYZED IT AND
  • 00:17:08.230 --> 00:17:10.020
  • REANALYZED IT AND STUDIED IT AND
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:12.030
  • RESEARCHED IT.
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:13.160
  • NO WONDER SHE DOESN'T HAVE ANY
  • 00:17:13.160 --> 00:17:14.130
  • FAITH.
  • 00:17:14.130 --> 00:17:15.280
  • AND IT'S GOOD TO HAVE
  • 00:17:15.280 --> 00:17:16.220
  • INFORMATION. I'M NOT SAYING TO
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:18.080
  • LIVE WITH OUR HEAD IN THE SAND
  • 00:17:18.080 --> 00:17:19.240
  • BUT THERE COMES A POINT WHERE
  • 00:17:19.240 --> 00:17:21.010
  • YOU HAVE TO SAY, "I AM NOT
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:22.200
  • GOING TO PUT ANY MORE DOUBT AND
  • 00:17:22.200 --> 00:17:24.230
  • UNBELIEF INTO MY MIND."
  • 00:17:24.230 --> 00:17:26.050
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:28.010
  • "YES, I WANT TO KNOW THE FACTS
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:30.050
  • BUT I DON'T NEED TO KNOW ALL THE
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:32.110
  • DETAILS OF WHY I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:17:32.110 --> 00:17:34.090
  • GET WELL, WHY I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:17:34.090 --> 00:17:35.150
  • GET OUT OF DEBT, WHY I CAN'T
  • 00:17:35.150 --> 00:17:37.120
  • ACCOMPLISH MY DREAMS."
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:39.210
  • TAKE THIS IN THE RIGHT SENSE.
  • 00:17:39.210 --> 00:17:40.200
  • SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO TURN YOUR
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:42.120
  • MIND OFF.
  • 00:17:42.120 --> 00:17:44.050
  • IF YOU LISTEN LONG ENOUGH, THE
  • 00:17:44.050 --> 00:17:45.260
  • EXPERTS, THEY CAN TALK YOU OUT
  • 00:17:45.260 --> 00:17:48.070
  • OF GOD'S BEST WITH THE FACTS,
  • 00:17:48.070 --> 00:17:50.230
  • THE FIGURES, THE DETAILS, THE
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:51.280
  • STATISTICS, THEY CAN CONVINCE
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:53.240
  • YOU INTO LIVING A DEFEATED,
  • 00:17:53.240 --> 00:17:55.030
  • MEDIOCRE LIFE.
  • 00:17:55.030 --> 00:17:56.250
  • IT'S LIKE THIS GUY I HEARD
  • 00:17:56.250 --> 00:17:57.190
  • ABOUT.
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:58.210
  • HE WAS STANDING ON THE SIDE OF A
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:17:59.180
  • BRIDGE ABOUT TO JUMP, SO
  • 00:17:59.180 --> 00:18:01.250
  • DEPRESSED, SO DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:03.220
  • A MAN RAN UP AND SAID, "PLEASE!
  • 00:18:03.220 --> 00:18:05.150
  • PLEASE! DON'T JUMP! LET ME
  • 00:18:05.150 --> 00:18:07.060
  • HELP! TELL ME ABOUT YOUR
  • 00:18:07.060 --> 00:18:07.260
  • PROBLEMS."
  • 00:18:07.260 --> 00:18:09.280
  • FOR THE NEXT THREE HOURS, IN
  • 00:18:09.280 --> 00:18:11.090
  • GREAT DETAIL, HE TOLD THE MAN
  • 00:18:11.090 --> 00:18:13.060
  • ALL OF HIS PROBLEMS.
  • 00:18:13.060 --> 00:18:14.200
  • WHEN HE GOT FINISHED THEY BOTH
  • 00:18:14.200 --> 00:18:15.160
  • JUMPED. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:15.160 --> 00:18:18.110
  • I WANT TO KNOW THE FACTS BUT I
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:19.110
  • DON'T WANT TO KNOW TOO MUCH.
  • 00:18:19.110 --> 00:18:21.130
  • IF YOU DON'T CUT THAT OFF IT'S
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:22.280
  • GOING TO DEPRESS YOU.
  • 00:18:22.280 --> 00:18:24.220
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET OUT OF THE
  • 00:18:24.220 --> 00:18:26.020
  • NATURAL AND SAY, "THIS MAY BE
  • 00:18:26.020 --> 00:18:27.060
  • IMPOSSIBLE WITH MEN BUT WITH GOD
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:28.290
  • ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE."
  • 00:18:28.290 --> 00:18:30.100
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:33.190
  • THOSE FISHERMEN SAID TO JESUS,
  • 00:18:33.190 --> 00:18:35.090
  • "WE'VE BEEN OUT FISHING ALL
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:36.220
  • NIGHT AND CAUGHT NOTHING.
  • 00:18:36.220 --> 00:18:38.180
  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVICE.
  • 00:18:38.180 --> 00:18:40.080
  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUGGESTION
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:41.170
  • BUT WE'RE THE EXPERTS. WE KNOW
  • 00:18:41.170 --> 00:18:43.250
  • THE FACTS. WE'VE GOT THE LATEST
  • 00:18:43.250 --> 00:18:45.210
  • FISHING REPORT EMAILED TO US
  • 00:18:45.210 --> 00:18:47.270
  • EARLIER THIS MORNING. NOTHING
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:48.270
  • IS BITING."
  • 00:18:48.270 --> 00:18:50.230
  • JESUS SAID IN EFFECT, "THE
  • 00:18:50.230 --> 00:18:52.270
  • PROMISE I'VE GIVEN YOU MAY NOT
  • 00:18:52.270 --> 00:18:54.070
  • MAKE SENSE IN THE NATURAL BUT I
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:56.230
  • HAVE SUPERNATURAL POWER.
  • 00:18:56.230 --> 00:18:59.140
  • YOUR REPORT MAY SAY THAT THERE
  • 00:18:59.140 --> 00:19:01.060
  • ARE NO FISH OUT THERE BUT YOU
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:03.000
  • HAVE TO UNDERSTAND; I CONTROL
  • 00:19:03.000 --> 00:19:04.200
  • THE FISH. THERE MAY NOT HAVE
  • 00:19:04.200 --> 00:19:06.130
  • BEEN FISH LAST NIGHT, LAST
  • 00:19:06.130 --> 00:19:08.110
  • WEEK, OR LAST YEAR, BUT I CAN
  • 00:19:08.110 --> 00:19:10.010
  • ASSURE YOU THERE ARE FISH OUT
  • 00:19:10.010 --> 00:19:11.080
  • THERE RIGHT NOW."
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:13.110
  • JESUS FINALLY CONVINCED THEM AND
  • 00:19:13.110 --> 00:19:15.070
  • THEY WENT OUT SORT OF THINKING
  • 00:19:15.070 --> 00:19:17.040
  • THAT THEY WERE WASTING THEIR
  • 00:19:17.040 --> 00:19:18.150
  • TIME BUT THEY SAID,
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:19.240
  • "NEVERTHELESS, JESUS. AT YOUR
  • 00:19:19.240 --> 00:19:21.100
  • WORD WE WILL DO IT."
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:24.110
  • THEY TURNED THEIR MIND OFF.
  • 00:19:24.110 --> 00:19:26.120
  • THEY IGNORED THEIR LOGIC, THEIR
  • 00:19:26.120 --> 00:19:28.010
  • REASONING, THEIR EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:19:28.010 --> 00:19:29.230
  • WHAT THAT WAS TELLING THEM.
  • 00:19:29.230 --> 00:19:31.090
  • I'VE LEARNED GOD IS NOT ALWAYS
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:32.210
  • LOGICAL.
  • 00:19:32.210 --> 00:19:34.030
  • GOD'S WAYS ARE NOT ALWAYS OUR
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:35.000
  • WAYS.
  • 00:19:35.000 --> 00:19:36.250
  • THEY WENT OUT AND CAUGHT SO MANY
  • 00:19:36.250 --> 00:19:37.270
  • FISH THAT THEIR BOAT BEGAN TO
  • 00:19:37.270 --> 00:19:39.010
  • SINK.
  • 00:19:39.010 --> 00:19:41.130
  • NOW DON'T TALK YOURSELF OUT OF
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:42.200
  • WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO IN YOUR
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:44.220
  • LIFE.
  • 00:19:44.220 --> 00:19:45.210
  • IT MAY NOT SEEM LOGICAL.
  • 00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:47.240
  • YOUR REASONING MAY TELL YOU,
  • 00:19:47.240 --> 00:19:49.090
  • "THERE'S NO WAY. YOU'RE TOO
  • 00:19:49.090 --> 00:19:50.220
  • YOUNG OR TOO OLD. ALL THE ODDS
  • 00:19:50.220 --> 00:19:52.090
  • ARE AGAINST YOU. IT LOOKS
  • 00:19:52.090 --> 00:19:53.190
  • IMPOSSIBLE."
  • 00:19:53.190 --> 00:19:55.170
  • DARE TO DO LIKE THESE FISHERMEN.
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:57.240
  • SAY, "GOD, THIS PROMISE YOU'VE
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:19:59.190
  • GIVEN ME DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:19:59.190 --> 00:20:02.020
  • I DON'T SEE HOW IT COULD EVER
  • 00:20:02.020 --> 00:20:03.180
  • HAPPEN. I DON'T KNOW WHY I
  • 00:20:03.180 --> 00:20:05.250
  • SHOULD EVEN GET MY HOPES UP.
  • 00:20:05.250 --> 00:20:07.170
  • NEVERTHELESS; GOD, IF YOU SAY
  • 00:20:07.170 --> 00:20:08.240
  • SO I'M GOING TO BELIEVE SO."
  • 00:20:08.240 --> 00:20:10.180
  • THAT'S WHAT MARY DID, THE MOTHER
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:11.280
  • OF CHRIST. SHE WAS A TEENAGER
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:14.190
  • LIVING IN NAZARETH.
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:16.170
  • AN ANGEL APPEARED UNTO HER AND
  • 00:20:16.170 --> 00:20:18.040
  • SAID, "MARY, YOU ARE HIGHLY
  • 00:20:18.040 --> 00:20:19.220
  • FAVORED OF GOD. YOU WILL GIVE
  • 00:20:19.220 --> 00:20:20.230
  • BIRTH TO A CHILD WITHOUT
  • 00:20:20.230 --> 00:20:22.010
  • KNOWING A MAN. HE WILL BE THE
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:23.180
  • SON OF GOD."
  • 00:20:23.180 --> 00:20:25.270
  • GOD SPOKE THIS INCREDIBLE
  • 00:20:25.270 --> 00:20:27.150
  • PROMISE TO HER.
  • 00:20:27.150 --> 00:20:29.000
  • YOU CAN IMAGINE THE THOUGHTS OF
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:30.160
  • DEFEAT AND DOUBT THAT WERE
  • 00:20:30.160 --> 00:20:32.180
  • BOMBARDING HER MIND, SAYING,
  • 00:20:32.180 --> 00:20:35.000
  • "YOU CAN'T HAVE A CHILD WITHOUT
  • 00:20:35.090 --> 00:20:38.090
  • A MAN. THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:20:38.090 --> 00:20:39.000
  • THAT DEFIES THE LAWS OF NATURE."
  • 00:20:39.000 --> 00:20:41.110
  • IF SHE WOULD HAVE LOOKED AT IT
  • 00:20:41.110 --> 00:20:42.000
  • JUST IN THE NATURAL SHE WOULD
  • 00:20:42.000 --> 00:20:43.080
  • HAVE TALKED HERSELF OUT OF IT.
  • 00:20:43.080 --> 00:20:44.250
  • BUT MARY UNDERSTOOD THIS
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:45.240
  • PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:20:45.240 --> 00:20:46.230
  • SHE DIDN'T CONSIDER HER
  • 00:20:46.230 --> 00:20:48.010
  • CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:20:48.010 --> 00:20:49.060
  • SHE CONSIDERED HER GOD.
  • 00:20:49.060 --> 00:20:50.270
  • I LOVE THE WAY SHE ANSWERED
  • 00:20:50.270 --> 00:20:51.250
  • BACK.
  • 00:20:51.250 --> 00:20:52.290
  • SHE DIDN'T SAY, "THAT SOUNDS SO
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:54.040
  • FAR OUT. I JUST DON'T SEE HOW
  • 00:20:54.040 --> 00:20:55.190
  • IT COULD HAPPEN."
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:56.280
  • NO, SHE WAS BOLD.
  • 00:20:56.280 --> 00:20:58.080
  • SHE TOLD THE ANGEL, "BE IT UNTO
  • 00:20:58.080 --> 00:20:59.150
  • ME EVEN AS YOU HAVE SAID."
  • 00:20:59.270 --> 00:21:02.290
  • IN OTHER WORDS, "LET IT HAPPEN.
  • 00:21:02.290 --> 00:21:04.190
  • I AM IN AGREEMENT. IF GOD SAYS
  • 00:21:04.190 --> 00:21:06.250
  • I'M HIGHLY FAVORED I BELIEVE
  • 00:21:06.250 --> 00:21:08.080
  • I'M HIGHLY FAVORED. IF GOD SAYS
  • 00:21:08.080 --> 00:21:09.290
  • THE IMPOSSIBLE IS GOING TO
  • 00:21:09.290 --> 00:21:11.090
  • HAPPEN I BELIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:21:11.090 --> 00:21:12.070
  • WILL HAPPEN."
  • 00:21:12.070 --> 00:21:14.240
  • THAT'S THE WAY WE NEED TO BE
  • 00:21:14.240 --> 00:21:15.250
  • WHEN GOD PUTS A PROMISE IN OUR
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:17.100
  • HEART. WE MAY NOT SEE HOW IT
  • 00:21:17.100 --> 00:21:19.120
  • COULD WORK OUT IN THE NATURAL
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:20.240
  • BUT WE DON'T TRY TO REASON IT
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:22.170
  • OUT. WE DON'T MAKE EXCUSES.
  • 00:21:22.170 --> 00:21:24.200
  • WE DO LIKE ABRAHAM AND BECOME
  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:26.050
  • FULLY PERSUADED.
  • 00:21:26.050 --> 00:21:28.150
  • YOU MAY BE FACING AN ILLNESS.
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:30.210
  • GOD GIVES YOU THE PROMISE WITH
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:32.030
  • LONG LIFE HE WILL SATISFY YOU.
  • 00:21:32.030 --> 00:21:34.190
  • YOU COULD EITHER SAY,
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:36.170
  • "WELL, I DON'T KNOW, JOEL.
  • 00:21:36.170 --> 00:21:37.080
  • THE REPORT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:21:37.080 --> 00:21:39.190
  • I'VE HAD THIS FOR FIVE YEARS.
  • 00:21:39.190 --> 00:21:41.080
  • MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER DIED OF
  • 00:21:41.080 --> 00:21:42.060
  • THE SAME THING."
  • 00:21:42.060 --> 00:21:43.170
  • YOU COULD TALK YOURSELF OUT OF
  • 00:21:43.170 --> 00:21:44.220
  • IT OR YOU CAN SAY LIKE MARY,
  • 00:21:44.220 --> 00:21:46.250
  • "GOD, IF YOU SAY I'M GOING TO BE
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:48.140
  • WELL I BELIEVE I'M GOING TO BE
  • 00:21:48.140 --> 00:21:49.260
  • WELL."
  • 00:21:49.260 --> 00:21:51.030
  • MAYBE YOU'RE STRUGGLING IN YOUR
  • 00:21:51.030 --> 00:21:52.100
  • FINANCES.
  • 00:21:52.100 --> 00:21:53.190
  • YOU'VE RUN ALL THE NUMBERS.
  • 00:21:53.190 --> 00:21:55.000
  • IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE YOU'LL EVER
  • 00:21:55.000 --> 00:21:56.010
  • GET OUT OF DEBT.
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:57.100
  • BUT BECAUSE YOU'RE A GIVER GOD
  • 00:21:57.100 --> 00:21:58.280
  • GIVES YOU THE PROMISE HE IS
  • 00:21:58.280 --> 00:22:00.170
  • GOING TO OPEN THE WINDOWS OF
  • 00:22:00.170 --> 00:22:01.250
  • HEAVEN, POUR OUT BLESSINGS THAT
  • 00:22:01.250 --> 00:22:03.060
  • YOU CANNOT CONTAIN.
  • 00:22:03.060 --> 00:22:05.040
  • NOW DON'T MAKE EXCUSES.
  • 00:22:05.040 --> 00:22:06.200
  • "GOD, DO YOU KNOW WHERE I WORK?
  • 00:22:06.200 --> 00:22:08.050
  • GOD, DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE COST
  • 00:22:08.050 --> 00:22:09.120
  • OF LIVING IS?
  • 00:22:09.120 --> 00:22:10.180
  • GOD, HAVE YOU SEEN THE STOCK
  • 00:22:10.180 --> 00:22:11.060
  • MARKET?"
  • 00:22:11.060 --> 00:22:12.150
  • NO, ZIP THAT UP AND DO LIKE
  • 00:22:12.150 --> 00:22:13.100
  • MARY.
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:14.100
  • "GOD, LET IT HAPPEN. I AM IN
  • 00:22:14.100 --> 00:22:15.160
  • AGREEMENT. BE IT UNTO ME EVEN
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:17.080
  • AS YOU HAVE SAID." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:22:17.080 --> 00:22:20.030
  • MARY ASKED THE ANGEL SOMETHING
  • 00:22:20.030 --> 00:22:22.160
  • INTERESTING.
  • 00:22:22.160 --> 00:22:23.240
  • SHE SAID, "HOW CAN THIS BE
  • 00:22:23.240 --> 00:22:25.240
  • SEEING THAT I KNOW NOT A MAN?"
  • 00:22:25.240 --> 00:22:28.080
  • SHE WAS ASKING OF COURSE ABOUT
  • 00:22:28.080 --> 00:22:29.270
  • THE PHYSICAL BUT I BELIEVE THERE
  • 00:22:29.270 --> 00:22:31.070
  • IS A DEEPER MEANING.
  • 00:22:31.070 --> 00:22:32.240
  • GOD IS SAYING, "MY PROMISES ARE
  • 00:22:32.240 --> 00:22:34.020
  • NOT DEPENDENT ON MAN."
  • 00:22:34.020 --> 00:22:36.290
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW CERTAIN
  • 00:22:36.290 --> 00:22:38.170
  • PEOPLE IN ORDER TO FULFILL YOUR
  • 00:22:38.170 --> 00:22:40.020
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:22:40.020 --> 00:22:41.230
  • SOMETIMES WE THINK, "IF I COULD
  • 00:22:41.230 --> 00:22:42.190
  • JUST GET MY BOSS TO LIKE ME THEN
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:44.040
  • HE'D GIVE ME THAT PROMOTION.
  • 00:22:44.040 --> 00:22:45.260
  • IF I COULD JUST GET TO THAT
  • 00:22:45.260 --> 00:22:47.070
  • EXPERT THEN I'D HAVE THE
  • 00:22:47.070 --> 00:22:48.100
  • TRAINING. IF I JUST HAD SOME
  • 00:22:48.100 --> 00:22:49.230
  • IMPORTANT INFLUENTIAL FRIENDS
  • 00:22:49.230 --> 00:22:52.040
  • MAYBE I COULD GET A GOOD
  • 00:22:52.040 --> 00:22:52.260
  • BREAK."
  • 00:22:52.260 --> 00:22:54.110
  • NO, GOD'S PROMISES ARE NOT
  • 00:22:54.110 --> 00:22:55.200
  • DEPENDENT ON WHO YOU KNOW
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:57.290
  • OR WHO YOU DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:22:59.180
  • THE MAIN THING IS YOU KNOW HIM
  • 00:22:59.180 --> 00:23:01.140
  • AND HE CONTROLS IT ALL.
  • 00:23:01.140 --> 00:23:03.120
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "PROMOTION
  • 00:23:03.120 --> 00:23:04.280
  • DOESN'T COME FROM PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:04.280 --> 00:23:07.050
  • IT COMES FROM ALMIGHTY GOD."
  • 00:23:07.050 --> 00:23:09.110
  • WHEN IT'S YOUR TIME TO BE
  • 00:23:09.110 --> 00:23:10.230
  • PROMOTED, TO BE HEALED, TO BE
  • 00:23:10.230 --> 00:23:12.180
  • RESTORED, GOD DOESN'T GO CHECK
  • 00:23:12.180 --> 00:23:14.080
  • WITH YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR
  • 00:23:14.080 --> 00:23:16.000
  • NEIGHBORS, YOUR CO-WORKERS.
  • 00:23:16.000 --> 00:23:17.270
  • HE SAYS LIKE MARY, "I'LL MAKE IT
  • 00:23:17.270 --> 00:23:19.080
  • HAPPEN WITHOUT A MAN."
  • 00:23:19.080 --> 00:23:21.150
  • IF GOD CAN DO IT WITHOUT A MAN
  • 00:23:21.150 --> 00:23:23.250
  • HE CAN DO IT WITHOUT A BANK.
  • 00:23:23.250 --> 00:23:25.240
  • HE CAN DO IT WITHOUT A LOAN.
  • 00:23:25.240 --> 00:23:27.260
  • HE CAN DO IT WITHOUT THE
  • 00:23:27.260 --> 00:23:28.260
  • TREATMENT. HE CAN DO IT WITHOUT
  • 00:23:28.260 --> 00:23:29.290
  • THE TRAINING. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:23:29.290 --> 00:23:32.240
  • SOME OF YOU HAVE CONSIDERED
  • 00:23:32.240 --> 00:23:33.260
  • YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES LONG ENOUGH.
  • 00:23:33.260 --> 00:23:36.100
  • IT'S TIME TO START CONSIDERING
  • 00:23:36.100 --> 00:23:37.240
  • YOUR GOD.
  • 00:23:37.240 --> 00:23:39.020
  • HE IS THE ALL-POWERFUL CREATOR
  • 00:23:39.020 --> 00:23:40.150
  • OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:23:40.150 --> 00:23:42.070
  • THE PROMISE, THE DREAM, HE HAS
  • 00:23:42.070 --> 00:23:44.050
  • PLACED IN YOUR HEART MAY SEEM
  • 00:23:44.050 --> 00:23:45.100
  • IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:23:45.100 --> 00:23:47.020
  • IT MAY LOOK TOO BIG.
  • 00:23:47.020 --> 00:23:48.220
  • WHEN YOU RUN THE NUMBERS, SO TO
  • 00:23:48.220 --> 00:23:49.260
  • SPEAK, IT DOESN'T SEEM LOGICAL.
  • 00:23:49.260 --> 00:23:51.290
  • BUT DON'T DO LIKE THE FISHERMEN
  • 00:23:51.290 --> 00:23:54.020
  • AND OVERANALYZE IT AND TRY TO
  • 00:23:54.020 --> 00:23:55.240
  • REASON IT ALL OUT.
  • 00:23:55.240 --> 00:23:57.260
  • YOU'LL JUST TALK YOURSELF OUT OF
  • 00:23:57.260 --> 00:23:59.160
  • IT. DO LIKE MARY. DARE TO SAY,
  • 00:23:59.160 --> 00:24:01.180
  • "GOD, I DON'T SEE A WAY BUT I
  • 00:24:01.180 --> 00:24:03.020
  • KNOW YOU HAVE A WAY. LET IT
  • 00:24:03.020 --> 00:24:04.120
  • HAPPEN."
  • 00:24:04.120 --> 00:24:05.250
  • WHEN THE NEGATIVE REPORTS, THE
  • 00:24:05.250 --> 00:24:07.180
  • NEGATIVE THOUGHTS COME, SAYING,
  • 00:24:07.180 --> 00:24:08.290
  • "IT'S TOO LATE. IT'S
  • 00:24:08.290 --> 00:24:09.250
  • IMPOSSIBLE,"
  • 00:24:09.250 --> 00:24:10.230
  • LEARN TO IGNORE IT.
  • 00:24:10.230 --> 00:24:12.270
  • THAT'S ONE REPORT BUT REMEMBER
  • 00:24:12.270 --> 00:24:14.030
  • GOD HAS ANOTHER REPORT.
  • 00:24:14.030 --> 00:24:15.110
  • HE IS SAYING TODAY, "EVERY
  • 00:24:15.110 --> 00:24:17.220
  • PROMISE I'VE SPOKEN OVER YOU,
  • 00:24:17.220 --> 00:24:20.030

  • ADDICTION.
  • 00:24:33.180 --> 00:24:35.170
