  • AND MOST OF THE TIME WHAT THE HOST IS SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:47.200
  • DO IS CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT THAT SAME LEGACY
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:51.240
  • AND YOUR LEGACY, BUT SOMETHING YOU SAID AT THE
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:55.120
  • VERY BEGINNING, VICTORIA, KIND OF JUMPED INTO
  • 00:04:55.140 --> 00:04:57.160
  • MY MIND.
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:04:59.170
  • THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE THAT DON'T HAVE A LEGACY,
  • 00:04:59.190 --> 00:05:02.150
  • THAT ARE STARTING FROM SCRATCH.
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:05.110
  • AND LET'S START THERE TONIGHT.
  • 00:05:05.130 --> 00:05:08.230
  • WE'RE GOING TO BUILD ON IT.
  • 00:05:08.250 --> 00:05:10.180
  • WE'RE GOING TO GET TO HAVE MAMA DODIE ON AND
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:12.280
  • ALL OF THAT, BUT WHAT WORDS TO THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:05:13.000 --> 00:05:17.290
  • DON'T COME FROM THE SAME KIND OF BACKGROUNDS THAT
  • 00:05:18.010 --> 00:05:21.160
  • WE'VE HAD AND ARE STARTING OVER, THERE'S A
  • 00:05:21.180 --> 00:05:23.210
  • LOT OF PEOPLE VIEWING TONIGHT THAT PROBABLY
  • 00:05:23.230 --> 00:05:25.170
  • FEEL THAT WAY, I CAN NEVER DO ANYTHING BECAUSE
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:27.280
  • I DIDN'T COME FROM THAT KIND OF LEGACY.
  • 00:05:28.000 --> 00:05:30.220
  • - IT'S INTERESTING, MATT, I THOUGHT THAT SAME
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:33.120
  • THING WHEN VICTORIA WAS TALKING BECAUSE I FEEL
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:35.190
  • VERY BLESSED BECAUSE I HAD PARENTS THAT SPOKE
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:38.010
  • FAITH INTO ME, THAT LOVED ME, THAT LOVED GOD, THAT
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:41.010
  • HONORED GOD, BUT I REALIZE NOT EVERYBODY
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:43.030
  • HAS THAT.
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:46.130
  • SOME PEOPLE, I MEET THEM ALL THE TIME, I'M SURE
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:49.040
  • YOU DO TOO THAT THEY COME FROM PEOPLE THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:51.290
  • NOT NECESSARILY PROUD OF.
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:05:53.080
  • THEY LOVE THEIR PARENTS BUT THERE'S OTHER THINGS,
  • 00:05:53.100 --> 00:05:54.200
  • BUT I THINK MY ENCOURAGEMENT TO YOU
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:57.180
  • WOULD BE THAT YOU CAN BE THE ONE TO START THE
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:06:00.100
  • NEW LEGACY.
  • 00:06:00.120 --> 00:06:02.070
  • YOU'RE NOT HEARING THIS BY ACCIDENT.
  • 00:06:02.090 --> 00:06:04.210
  • YOU CAN BE THE ONE TO BREAK THE ADDICTION OR TO
  • 00:06:04.230 --> 00:06:06.050
  • RISE HIGHER.
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:07.130
  • WHATEVER HELD YOUR FAMILY DOWN GOD'S HAVING YOU
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:11.110
  • HEAR THIS SO YOU CAN MAKE SOME CHANGES.
  • 00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:14.080
  • I THINK A LOT OF TIMES, MATT, WE HEAR ABOUT A
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:17.050
  • GENERATIONAL CURSE, BUT WE CAN START A
  • 00:06:17.070 --> 00:06:19.070
  • GENERATIONAL BLESSING.
  • 00:06:19.090 --> 00:06:21.030
  • I BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO.
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:22.260
  • AND WE LOVE THOSE THAT HAVE GONE BEFORE US, BUT
  • 00:06:22.280 --> 00:06:26.190
  • I DON'T BELIEVE WE'RE SUPPOSED TO STAY THERE
  • 00:06:26.210 --> 00:06:28.290
  • AND I THINK SOMETIMES WE CAN LET THOSE THOUGHTS
  • 00:06:29.010 --> 00:06:31.180
  • PLAY, SPECIALLY PEOPLE THAT WEREN'T RAISED WITH
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:34.190
  • PEOPLE THAT PUSHED THEM FORWARD TO SAY LIKE YOU
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:37.030
  • SAID I'M NOT TALENTED, I DIDN'T HAVE WHAT
  • 00:06:37.050 --> 00:06:39.010
  • YOU HAVE, JOEL.
  • 00:06:39.030 --> 00:06:40.280
  • I DIDN'T HAVE SOMEBODY SPEAKING FAITH INTO ME.
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:42.270
  • BUT NOTHING THAT YOU'RE FACING IS A SURPRISE
  • 00:06:42.290 --> 00:06:45.100
  • TO GOD.
  • 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:47.060
  • GOD HAS ALREADY EQUIPPED AND EMPOWERED YOU, AND
  • 00:06:47.080 --> 00:06:49.130
  • AGAIN, I BELIEVE THE REASON YOU'RE HEARING
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:52.000
  • THIS IS SO THAT FAITH CAN BE IGNITED IN YOUR HEARTS
  • 00:06:52.020 --> 00:06:54.280
  • SO YOU CAN SAY YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:06:55.000 --> 00:06:57.110
  • I'M THE ONE TO RISE HIGHER.
  • 00:06:57.130 --> 00:06:59.170
  • I AM GOING TO START A NEW LEGACY.
  • 00:06:59.190 --> 00:07:01.180
  • I AM GOING TO SPEAK FAITH INTO MY CHILDREN.
  • 00:07:01.200 --> 00:07:03.050
  • I AM GOING TO BREAK THIS ADDICTION.
  • 00:07:03.070 --> 00:07:04.270
  • YOU BE THE ONE TO SET A NEW STANDARD, SO THAT
  • 00:07:04.290 --> 00:07:06.220
  • WOULD BE MY ENCOURAGEMENT IS TO DON'T GET STUCK IN
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:09.120
  • THE PAST.
  • 00:07:09.140 --> 00:07:11.030
  • SAY YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:13.130
  • I WILL BE THE JOHN OSTEEN IN MY FAMILY THAT CAN
  • 00:07:13.150 --> 00:07:14.280
  • SPEAK FAITH INTO OTHERS.
  • 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:17.050
  • - IN FACT, THAT'S WHAT YOUR FATHER DID ACTUALLY.
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:19.080
  • JOEL'S FATHER WAS THE FIRST ONE IN HIS FAMILY
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:21.180
  • TO KNOW CHRIST AND ACCEPT CHRIST INTO HIS LIFE, AND
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:25.040
  • HE MADE A DECISION RIGHT THEN THAT HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:27.280
  • RAISE HIS CHILDREN AND HE WAS GOING TO REPRESENT
  • 00:07:28.000 --> 00:07:30.040
  • CHRIST, SO IT TAKES FAITH.
  • 00:07:30.060 --> 00:07:32.220
  • IT TAKES DETERMINATION BECAUSE SOMETIMES WE'RE
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:35.000
  • PLOWING THE FIELD AND WE DON'T ALWAYS FEEL LIKE
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.220
  • IT'S CHANGING, BUT YOU GOT TO KNOW IN YOUR HEART
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:40.050
  • OF HEARTS THAT YOU'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:42.170
  • YOUR LIFE HAS VALUE AND IT HAS PURPOSE, AND YOU
  • 00:07:42.190 --> 00:07:45.020
  • KNOW, I CAN HEAR SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE SAYING
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:46.290
  • WELL, I AM THE ONLY ONE IN MY FAMILY
  • 00:07:47.010 --> 00:07:48.250
  • WHO BELIEVES.
  • 00:07:48.270 --> 00:07:50.140
  • YOU KNOW, AND I'VE GOT ALL THESE UNBELIEVERS
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:52.080
  • AROUND ME, AND IT'S HARD.
  • 00:07:52.100 --> 00:07:55.000
  • WELL, I WOULD ENCOURAGE THEM TO KEEP PLOWING.
  • 00:07:55.020 --> 00:07:57.100
  • YOU KNOW, THE BEST WAY TO SHOW CHRIST AND TO LEAVE
  • 00:07:57.120 --> 00:08:00.070
  • A LEGACY IS TO LEAVE A LEGACY OF LOVE.
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:02.120
  • AND I THINK YOU CAN'T CHANGE PEOPLE BUT YOU CAN
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:05.040
  • LET GOD CHANGE THEM.
  • 00:08:05.060 --> 00:08:06.180
  • YOU SOW THE SEED.
  • 00:08:06.200 --> 00:08:08.090
  • JUST LET YOUR LOVE WATER THE SEED, AND GOD WILL
  • 00:08:08.110 --> 00:08:11.050
  • BRING THE INCREASE, BUT I WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE
  • 00:08:11.070 --> 00:08:13.180
  • PEOPLE, DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:08:13.200 --> 00:08:15.280
  • KNOW THAT YOUR LIFE HAS VALUE.
  • 00:08:16.000 --> 00:08:18.200
  • GOD HAS YOU HERE FOR A PURPOSE AND A REASON AND
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:20.110
  • THAT YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:08:20.130 --> 00:08:22.060
  • - CAN I SAY ONE MORE THING, MATT AND LAURIE
  • 00:08:22.080 --> 00:08:24.190
  • TOO, IS SOME PEOPLE ARE RAISED IN A
  • 00:08:24.210 --> 00:08:26.040
  • LIMITED ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:27.230
  • SO MY DAD GREW UP DURING THE GREAT DEPRESSION BACK
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:29.190
  • IN THE 30'S.
  • 00:08:29.210 --> 00:08:31.210
  • HIS PARENTS WERE COTTON FARMERS AND DURING THE
  • 00:08:31.230 --> 00:08:34.130
  • GREAT DEPRESSION THEY LOST ALL THEIR MONEY WHEN
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:36.210
  • THE BANKS CLOSED, SO MY DAD, THEY DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:08:36.230 --> 00:08:39.020
  • MONEY GROWING UP TO HARDLY HAVE ENOUGH FOOD.
  • 00:08:39.040 --> 00:08:41.080
  • HE COULD NEVER DRINK A FULL GLASS OF MILK AND
  • 00:08:41.100 --> 00:08:43.150
  • JUST VERY EXTREME POVERTY.
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:46.010
  • AND AT 17 YEARS OLD LIKE VICTORIA SAID KNEW THE LORD.
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:50.110
  • BUT A FRIEND OF HIS IN HIGH SCHOOL HAD BEEN
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:53.160
  • WITNESSING TO HIM AND ENCOURAGING HIM.
  • 00:08:53.180 --> 00:08:55.280
  • AND THAT WAS SO FAR OUT TO MY DAD BECAUSE THERE
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:08:58.210
  • WAS JUST NO HISTORY OF FAITH.
  • 00:08:58.230 --> 00:09:00.280
  • BUT MY DAD WAS WALKING HOME FROM A NIGHTCLUB AT
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:03.060
  • 2 IN THE MORNING, 17 YEARS OLD, AND HE FELT
  • 00:09:03.080 --> 00:09:04.280
  • GOD DRAWING HIM.
  • 00:09:05.000 --> 00:09:06.270
  • HE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT IT WAS.
  • 00:09:06.290 --> 00:09:08.140
  • HE WALKED INTO THE LIVING ROOM THAT NIGHT AND THEY
  • 00:09:08.160 --> 00:09:11.080
  • DID HAVE A FAMILY BIBLE.
  • 00:09:11.100 --> 00:09:13.120
  • THEY MAY HAVE PRAYED AT CHRISTMAS OR SOMETHING
  • 00:09:13.140 --> 00:09:15.020
  • BUT THERE WAS NO FAITH.
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:17.010
  • BUT HE OPENED THE BIBLE, AND IT FELL OPEN TO A
  • 00:09:17.030 --> 00:09:19.200
  • PICTURE OF JESUS STANDING AT A DOOR AND KNOCKING.
  • 00:09:19.220 --> 00:09:21.220
  • IT SAYS IF BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK.
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:25.190
  • IF ANYONE OPENS THE DOOR, I'LL COME IN.
  • 00:09:25.210 --> 00:09:27.120
  • WELL, MY DAD DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT RELIGION
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:29.170
  • BUT HE DID KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT OPENING A DOOR.
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:32.040
  • SO THAT NEXT MORNING HE CALLED HIS FRIEND THAT
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:34.110
  • WENT TO CHURCH.
  • 00:09:34.130 --> 00:09:35.280
  • HIS FRIEND WALKED DOWN THE AISLE AND GAVE HIS
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:37.090
  • LIFE TO CHRIST.
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:38.270
  • THE FIRST ONE IN HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:40.150
  • AND WHAT'S INTERESTING IS 17 YEARS OLD GOD PUT A
  • 00:09:40.170 --> 00:09:42.280
  • DREAM IN MY HEART, THAT DAY THAT MY DAD WOULD BE
  • 00:09:43.000 --> 00:09:45.210
  • A PASTOR ONE DAY TO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:45.230 --> 00:09:48.110
  • AND BACK IN THE 30'S IT WASN'T A CHURCH THOUSANDS
  • 00:09:48.130 --> 00:09:50.260
  • BUT HE KNEW HE WAS SUPPOSED TO DO THAT.
  • 00:09:50.280 --> 00:09:53.270
  • BUT HERE'S THE POINT I WANTED TO GET TO.
  • 00:09:53.290 --> 00:09:56.080
  • HIS PARENTS WERE GREAT PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:58.070
  • THEY LOVED GOD BUT BASICALLY THEY SAID JOHN,
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:10:00.130
  • YOU CAN'T BE A PASTOR.
  • 00:10:00.150 --> 00:10:02.080
  • YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO ANYTHING BUT PICK COTTON.
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:04.120
  • HE TOLD THEM HE WAS GOING TO GO AND START A CHURCH
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:06.120
  • SOMEWHERE OR GO OUT AND START MINISTERING.
  • 00:10:06.140 --> 00:10:08.150
  • BUT THEY LOVED HIM BUT THEY TRIED TO KEEP HIM IN
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:10.250
  • THAT SAME ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:10:10.270 --> 00:10:12.240
  • AT 17 YEARS OLD MY DAD HITCHED HIKED AND HE WENT
  • 00:10:12.260 --> 00:10:15.100
  • OUT AND STARTED PREACHING IN THE SENIOR CITIZENS
  • 00:10:15.120 --> 00:10:17.130
  • HOMES AND ON THE STREET CORNERS AND THINGS
  • 00:10:17.150 --> 00:10:18.290
  • LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:19.010 --> 00:10:20.230
  • AND OF COURSE HE HONORED AND RESPECTED HIS
  • 00:10:20.250 --> 00:10:23.000
  • PARENTS, BUT IF HE HAD WOULD HAVE STAYED IN THAT
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:25.270
  • LIMITED ENVIRONMENT I WOULDN'T BE WHERE I AM
  • 00:10:25.290 --> 00:10:28.040
  • TODAY, LAKEWOOD WOULDN'T BE HERE.
  • 00:10:28.060 --> 00:10:30.060
  • I THINK SOMETIMES OUR ENVIRONMENT IS LIMITING US.
  • 00:10:30.080 --> 00:10:33.070
  • PEOPLE LOVE US.
  • 00:10:33.090 --> 00:10:35.080
  • PEOPLE THAT ARE AROUND YOU MAY LOVE YOU AND IT'S
  • 00:10:35.100 --> 00:10:37.180
  • ALWAYS GOOD TO HONOR AND RESPECT THEM, BUT
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:39.260
  • SOMETIMES GOD'S GOING TO PUT SOMETHING IN YOUR
  • 00:10:39.280 --> 00:10:42.130
  • HEART WHERE YOU HAVE TO TAKE A STEP OF FAITH,
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:44.130
  • WHERE YOU HAVE TO SAY YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:10:44.150 --> 00:10:46.100
  • THEY'RE TELLING ME NOT TO, BUT GOD, I BELIEVE
  • 00:10:46.120 --> 00:10:48.040
  • YOU DETERMINE MY DESTINY.
  • 00:10:48.060 --> 00:10:50.000
  • SO MY DAD BROKE OUT OF THE MOLD.
  • 00:10:50.020 --> 00:10:51.200
  • EVEN LATER IN LIFE WHEN HE WAS PASTORING
  • 00:10:51.220 --> 00:10:53.100
  • LAKEWOOD-- BEFORE HE PASTORED LAKEWOOD YOU
  • 00:10:53.120 --> 00:10:55.070
  • KNOW, HE WAS A PASTOR IN A DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH
  • 00:10:55.090 --> 00:10:57.010
  • AND THE SAME THING.
  • 00:10:57.030 --> 00:10:58.240
  • IT'S A LONGER STORY, BUT MY DAD TOOK A STEP OF
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:00.180
  • FAITH AND STARTED LAKEWOOD.
  • 00:11:00.200 --> 00:11:02.220
  • AND I THINK SOMETIMES TO REALLY LEAD THAT LEGACY,
  • 00:11:02.240 --> 00:11:05.080
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE A HOLY BOLDNESS.
  • 00:11:05.100 --> 00:11:08.100
  • YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO TAKE SOME RISKS.
  • 00:11:08.120 --> 00:11:10.150
  • WHEN YOU GOD IS PUTTING SOMETHING DEEP DOWN IN
  • 00:11:10.170 --> 00:11:12.230
  • YOUR HEART, DON'T LET PEOPLE TALK YOU OUT OF IT.
  • 00:11:12.250 --> 00:11:15.030
  • DON'T LET DOUBT TALK YOU OUT OF IT.
  • 00:11:15.050 --> 00:11:17.000
  • DON'T LET CIRCUMSTANCES TALK YOU OUT OF IT IT.
  • 00:11:17.020 --> 00:11:19.140
  • TAKE THAT STEP OF FAITH, AND I BELIEVE YOU'LL SEE
  • 00:11:19.160 --> 00:11:21.250
  • GOD OPEN DOORS THAT YOU NEVER DREAMED WOULD OPEN.
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:24.030
  • AND YOU CAN LEAVE A LEGACY OF FAITH,
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:25.130
  • SOMETHING FAR GREATER THAN YOU'VE EVER IMAGINED.
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:28.210
  • - WOW.
  • 00:11:28.230 --> 00:11:30.090
  • YOU KNOW, THAT REMINDS ME OF A STORY THAT POP
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:32.060
  • CROUCH USED TO TALK ABOUT.
  • 00:11:32.080 --> 00:11:34.290
  • HE HAD CHANNEL 21 OR CHANNEL 40 HERE
  • 00:11:35.010 --> 00:11:37.060
  • IN CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:11:37.080 --> 00:11:39.120
  • AND THEN GOOD PEOPLE, GOOD MINISTERS OF CHRIST,
  • 00:11:39.140 --> 00:11:42.250
  • GOOD PASTORS SAY PAUL CROUCH, THAT'S ENOUGH.
  • 00:11:42.270 --> 00:11:46.290
  • YOU CAN'T GO ANY FURTHER.
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:50.000
  • ONE STATION IS ENOUGH.
  • 00:11:50.020 --> 00:11:51.250
  • WAS IT JUST ONE STATION AT THE TIME?
  • 00:11:51.270 --> 00:11:53.040
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:11:53.060 --> 00:11:54.230
  • - SAID ONE STATION IS ENOUGH FOR YOU.
  • 00:11:54.250 --> 00:11:56.210
  • BECAUSE HE WANTED TO BUY ANOTHER STATION OVER IN
  • 00:11:56.230 --> 00:11:58.220
  • PHOENIX, CHANNEL 21 IN PHOENIX.
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:12:01.220
  • AND SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO SAY YOU KNOW WHAT? NO.
  • 00:12:01.240 --> 00:12:06.040
  • I FEEL SOMETHING ON THE INSIDE OF ME.
  • 00:12:06.060 --> 00:12:08.170
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT, I KNOW WHEN YOU STEP OUT IN
  • 00:12:08.190 --> 00:12:11.190
  • FAITH, GOD MEETS YOU THERE.
  • 00:12:11.210 --> 00:12:13.210
  • GOD MEETS YOU EVERY TIME BECAUSE HE'S A FAITHFUL
  • 00:12:13.230 --> 00:12:15.210
  • GOD, AND HE'LL OPEN DOORS THAT YOU NEVER DREAMED
  • 00:12:15.230 --> 00:12:18.180
  • POSSIBLE AND HE'LL DO THINGS THAT YOU
  • 00:12:18.200 --> 00:12:20.240
  • NEVER DREAMED.
  • 00:12:20.260 --> 00:12:23.090
  • - WHEN YOU'RE TALKING HOW YOUR FATHER HAD NO
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:25.070
  • EXAMPLE, THERE WAS NO UPLINE OF MINISTRY OR
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:28.010
  • ANYTHING, MY DAD HAD SOME MINISTRY IN HIS
  • 00:12:28.030 --> 00:12:31.280
  • BACKGROUND, BUT INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH MY
  • 00:12:32.000 --> 00:12:35.050
  • DAD'S DAD NEVER EVEN SAW TV.
  • 00:12:35.070 --> 00:12:37.140
  • HE DIED BEFORE TELEVISION BEGAN.
  • 00:12:37.160 --> 00:12:40.080
  • HE WAS RAISED BY HIS MOTHER WHO BASICALLY HAD
  • 00:12:40.100 --> 00:12:44.260
  • NO WAY TO GIVE ANY KIND CONFIDENCE INSIGHT OR TO
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:52.200
  • START AND PIONEER CHRISTIAN TELEVISION BACK
  • 00:12:52.220 --> 00:12:56.060
  • IN THE 70'S HERE IN LOS ANGELES WAS, I MEAN, THEY
  • 00:12:56.080 --> 00:13:00.050
  • FELT LIKE THEY WERE KIND OF ON THEIR OWN IN
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:03.080
  • PIONEERING THINGS.
  • 00:13:03.100 --> 00:13:05.110
  • AND THEN TO HAVE SOME OF THE LARGEST PASTORS WANT
  • 00:13:05.130 --> 00:13:09.040
  • TO JUST KIND OF OKAY, YOU GOT A STATION, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:13:09.060 --> 00:13:12.040
  • THERE'S NO NEED TO GO ANY FURTHER.
  • 00:13:12.060 --> 00:13:16.280
  • AND THERE WAS JUST A LIMITATION, BUT GOD TOOK
  • 00:13:17.000 --> 00:13:20.020
  • CARE OF THAT BECAUSE ULTIMATELY IF GOD THINGS
  • 00:13:20.040 --> 00:13:25.270
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE -- IF IT'S HIS THING, IF
  • 00:13:25.290 --> 00:13:31.080
  • GOD STARTS SOMETHING LIKE TBN, I MEAN, HE STARTED
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:34.060
  • WITH HIS WORD.
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:35.270
  • BUT MY DAD WAS IN THE DEN OF OUR HOME ONE TIME AND
  • 00:13:35.290 --> 00:13:39.260
  • LOOKED UP ON THE CEILING AND SAW WHAT HE LATER
  • 00:13:39.280 --> 00:13:43.070
  • DESCRIBED AS AN AT&T COMMERCIAL, SEEING LIGHTS
  • 00:13:43.090 --> 00:13:46.160
  • TURN ON ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:13:46.180 --> 00:13:49.140
  • HE SAID LORD, WHAT AM I SEEING?
  • 00:13:49.160 --> 00:13:51.070
  • SATELLITE.
  • 00:13:51.090 --> 00:13:52.280
  • THE LORD SPOKE ONE RESOUNDING WORD TO HIM.
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:54.280
  • SATELLITE.
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:56.260
  • AND THAT WAS IN 1975.
  • 00:13:56.280 --> 00:13:59.080
  • TBN HAD THE COURAGE BECAUSE OF THAT OPEN EYE
  • 00:13:59.100 --> 00:14:02.180
  • VISION TO BASICALLY BE ON THE VERY FIRST SATELLITE
  • 00:14:02.200 --> 00:14:07.290
  • THAT EVER WAS NON MILITARY IN THE UNITED
  • 00:14:08.010 --> 00:14:11.190
  • STATES HISTORY.
  • 00:14:11.210 --> 00:14:13.200
  • AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WE WERE DOING.
  • 00:14:13.220 --> 00:14:15.230
  • DIDN'T HAVE ANY KIND OF BACKUP.
  • 00:14:15.250 --> 00:14:17.230
  • IT WAS JUST GOD'S PEOPLE DOING IT.
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:19.240
  • THE LEGACY OF WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS SO
  • 00:14:19.260 --> 00:14:23.060
  • IMPORTANT AROUND HERE, TOO.
  • 00:14:23.080 --> 00:14:26.180
  • WE CAN'T SIT HERE --WE ARE BASICALLY SITTING HERE
  • 00:14:26.200 --> 00:14:30.140
  • BECAUSE OF WHO OUR PARENTS AND WHO THEY
  • 00:14:30.160 --> 00:14:33.200
  • DARED TO BE AND WHAT THEY DARED TO PUSH OUT.
  • 00:14:33.220 --> 00:14:37.020
  • AND AGAIN, IN A FEW MINUTES WE'LL HAVE DODIE
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:39.160
  • OSTEEN HERE.
  • 00:14:39.180 --> 00:14:41.110
  • SHE'S SITTING RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:43.010
  • SHE'S GOING TO BE UP.
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:44.190
  • ANOTHER ROLL IN.

  • - THEY'D ASK HIM AND HE SAID I'M NOT WORRIED
  • 00:15:28.060 --> 00:15:29.210
  • ABOUT IT.
  • 00:15:29.230 --> 00:15:31.040
  • I KNOW GOD WILL RAISE SOMEBODY UP.
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:32.190

  • - IT'S AMAZING TO EVEN WATCH THAT CLIP THAT GOD

  • WOULD DO SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU EVER
  • 00:16:43.230 --> 00:16:48.130
  • THOUGHT POSSIBLE.
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:50.240
  • - MORE THAN I EVER IMAGINED, MATT.
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:53.160
  • I SEE WHEN I LOOK AT THE PICTURE OF THE COMPACT
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:56.160
  • CENTER I ALWAYS THINK AND I TELL IT ALL THE TIME I
  • 00:16:56.180 --> 00:16:59.070
  • HAD SEASON TICKETS TO WATCH THE ROCKETS WHEN I
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:01.170
  • WAS IN MY LATE TEENS, EARLY 20'S NEVER DREAMING
  • 00:17:01.190 --> 00:17:04.210
  • ONE DAY THAT WE'D OWN THAT BUILDING.
  • 00:17:04.230 --> 00:17:07.150
  • THAT'S WHY IT'S SO EASY FOR ME TO TELL PEOPLE
  • 00:17:07.170 --> 00:17:10.250
  • THAT GOD'S DREAM FOR YOUR LIFE IS BIGGER THAN
  • 00:17:10.270 --> 00:17:12.090
  • YOUR OWN.
  • 00:17:12.110 --> 00:17:14.170
  • I MEAN, 21, 22 YEARS AGO I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE A
  • 00:17:14.190 --> 00:17:16.160
  • PASTOR, NEVER THOUGHT HE'S DOORS WOULD OPEN,
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:19.070
  • BUT AGAIN NOT BRAGGING ON US, JUST BRAGGING ON WHAT
  • 00:17:19.090 --> 00:17:21.200
  • GOD WANTS TO DO IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:21.220 --> 00:17:23.160
  • WHEN YOU DARE TO BELIEVE, WHEN YOU HONOR HIM, WHEN
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:26.030
  • WITH YOU KEEP HIM FIRST PLACE, YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:28.100
  • GOD'S GOING TO TAKE YOU.
  • 00:17:28.120 --> 00:17:30.100
  • EVEN ME, YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT -- MY DAD WOULD ASK
  • 00:17:30.120 --> 00:17:32.270
  • ME TO COME UP AND MINISTER WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:17:32.290 --> 00:17:35.050
  • ALIVE AND I THOUGHT, THAT'S SO FUNNY BECAUSE I
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:37.100
  • WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
  • 00:17:37.120 --> 00:17:38.280
  • I DIDN'T THINK I COULD GET UP IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:40.260
  • I'M NATURALLY MORE QUIET AND RESERVED AND IT WAS
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:43.230
  • SO FAR OUT TO ME, BUT WHEN MY DAD DIED,
  • 00:17:43.250 --> 00:17:47.250
  • SOMETIMES GOD WILL USE ADVERSITY TO PUSH YOU
  • 00:17:47.270 --> 00:17:50.200
  • INTO YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:52.090
  • - WOW.
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:54.130
  • - I DISCOVERED GIFTS AND TALENTS IN ME THAT I
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:56.020
  • DIDN'T KNOW I HAD.
  • 00:17:56.040 --> 00:17:57.250
  • I DIDN'T KNOW I COULD GET UP IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:17:59.140
  • EVEN WHEN I FIRST STARTED MINISTERING A LITTLE WAYS
  • 00:17:59.160 --> 00:18:01.170
  • DOWN THE ROAD MAYBE, AT FIRST I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:18:01.190 --> 00:18:03.250
  • I WAS DOING, STILL DON'T KNOW TOTALLY, BUT AT
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:05.190
  • FIRST PEOPLE WOULD SAY OH MAN, YOU'RE SO GOOD.
  • 00:18:05.210 --> 00:18:07.110
  • YOU REALLY KNOW HOW TO MINISTER.
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:08.260
  • I THOUGHT I'M JUST TALKING TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:10.070
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN.
  • 00:18:10.090 --> 00:18:12.000
  • BUT YOU KNOW, I REALIZED, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:13.290
  • SOMEHOW GOD GAVE ME A GIFT TO CONNECT WITH
  • 00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:15.200
  • PEOPLE, SO I SAY THAT NOT TO BRAG ON ME BUT TO LET
  • 00:18:15.220 --> 00:18:18.010
  • YOU KNOW THERE ARE GIFTS AND TALENTS IN YOU THAT
  • 00:18:18.030 --> 00:18:20.070
  • YOU HAVE NOT YET TAPPED INTO.
  • 00:18:20.090 --> 00:18:22.280
  • I BELIEVE THERE IS POTENTIAL IN YOU THAT
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:25.120
  • YOU'RE GOING TO SEE GOD BRING OUT IN A CERTAIN WAY.
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:28.130
  • AND I CAN TELL YOU, IT MAY TRY TO INTIMIDATE YOU.
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:32.270
  • YOU MAY FEEL LIKE YOU CAN'T DO IT, BUT LET ME
  • 00:18:32.290 --> 00:18:35.020
  • TELL YOU, GOD WOULDN'T HAVE GIVEN YOU THAT
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:36.270
  • OPPORTUNITY IF HE HAD NOT ALREADY EQUIPPED YOU AND
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:39.010
  • EMPOWERED YOU.
  • 00:18:39.030 --> 00:18:40.220
  • WHEN I FIRST STARTED MINISTERING, I WAS SO NERVOUS.
  • 00:18:40.240 --> 00:18:43.080
  • I'D HAVE TO GO LOOK IN THE MIRROR ON SATURDAY
  • 00:18:43.100 --> 00:18:45.100
  • NIGHT AND SAY JOEL, YOU CAN DO THIS.
  • 00:18:45.120 --> 00:18:47.200
  • YOU ARE WELL ABLE.
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:49.040
  • YOU ARE STRONG FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:51.030
  • SEE, I'VE LEARNED THIS, YOU CAN EITHER TALK
  • 00:18:51.050 --> 00:18:53.010
  • YOURSELF INTO YOUR DREAMS OR YOU CAN TALK YOURSELF
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:54.180
  • OUT OF YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:18:56.130
  • I THINK TOO MANY TIMES WE'RE LETTING THOSE WRONG
  • 00:18:56.150 --> 00:18:58.020
  • THOUGHTS PLAY.
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:19:00.040
  • I DON'T HAVE A BIG LEGACY LIKE YOU, JOEL.
  • 00:19:00.060 --> 00:19:01.290
  • MY DAD DIDN'T LEAVE ME A CHURCH.
  • 00:19:02.010 --> 00:19:03.280
  • I DON'T HAVE ALL THIS OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:19:04.000 --> 00:19:05.210
  • LISTEN, YOU HAVE WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE A
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:07.110
  • GREATER DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:19:07.130 --> 00:19:09.110
  • SO YOU LET THAT FAITH RISE UP IN YOU.
  • 00:19:09.130 --> 00:19:11.050
  • AND LIKE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, DON'T LET PEOPLE
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:12.220
  • TALK YOU OUT OF IT.
  • 00:19:12.240 --> 00:19:14.170
  • SOMETIMES WELL-MEANING PEOPLE CAN SAY THINGS.
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:16.190
  • IF YOU LET THAT PLAY OVER AND OVER, IT CAN KEEP YOU
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:19.010
  • FROM YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:19:19.030 --> 00:19:20.220
  • YOU'VE GOT TO TUNE ALL THAT OUT.
  • 00:19:20.240 --> 00:19:22.170
  • SAY GOD, I KNOW YOU BEING FOR ME IS MORE THAN THE
  • 00:19:22.190 --> 00:19:24.050
  • WORLD BEING AGAINST ME.
  • 00:19:24.070 --> 00:19:26.000
  • YOU KEEP MOVING FORWARD, AND I BELIEVE YOU'LL SEE
  • 00:19:26.020 --> 00:19:27.260
  • THE GOODNESS OF GOD IN GREAT WAYS.
  • 00:19:27.280 --> 00:19:30.050
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:32.110
  • - YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT'S THE KEY,
  • 00:19:32.130 --> 00:19:33.200
  • MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:35.050
  • IT'S EASY TO GET STUCK.
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:36.140
  • IT'S EASY TO GET STUCK, BUT GOD EXPECTS US TO
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:37.280
  • BE DETERMINED.
  • 00:19:38.000 --> 00:19:39.160
  • HE EXPECTS US TO USE WHAT WE HAVE.
  • 00:19:39.180 --> 00:19:41.040
  • AND YOU KNOW, IT'S GREAT WHEN GOD GIVES YOU A
  • 00:19:41.060 --> 00:19:43.180
  • VISION ON THE CEILING, BUT MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:45.280
  • DON'T GET THAT.
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:48.170
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:49.280
  • - YOU KNOW, MOST PEOPLE HAVE TO STEP OUT IN FAITH.
  • 00:19:50.000 --> 00:19:51.240
  • AND THEY LOOK AT THEIR RESOURCES, THEY LOOK AT
  • 00:19:51.260 --> 00:19:53.120
  • THEIR ABILITY, AND IT LOOKS LIMITED, BUT IF
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:55.150
  • GOD'S ASKED YOU TO DO SOMETHING HE'S GOING TO
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:57.090
  • GIVE YOU THAT NEXT STEP, BUT WE HAVE TO TAKE THAT
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:19:59.150
  • NEXT STEP.
  • 00:19:59.170 --> 00:20:01.000
  • AND LIKE JOEL SAID, HE HAD TO LITERALLY TALK
  • 00:20:01.020 --> 00:20:03.290
  • HIMSELF INTO IT BECAUSE I KNOW HOW AFRAID HE WAS.
  • 00:20:04.010 --> 00:20:07.230
  • AND I KNOW HOW, YOU KNOW, WHEN SOMEONE PUSHES YOU
  • 00:20:07.250 --> 00:20:11.000
  • INTO A SWIMMING POOL, YOU BETTER START SWIMMING OR
  • 00:20:11.020 --> 00:20:13.110
  • YOU'RE GOING TO SINK.
  • 00:20:13.130 --> 00:20:15.110
  • AND SOMETIMES WE FIND OURSELVES AT A TURN OF
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:17.150
  • LIFE OR A PLACE WE DIDN'T EXPECT.
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:21.000
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:20:21.020 --> 00:20:23.020
  • WE'VE GOT TO START SWIMMING.
  • 00:20:23.040 --> 00:20:24.210
  • WE'VE GOT TO JUST GO FOR IT AND WE HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:20:24.230 --> 00:20:26.270
  • THAT CONFIDENCE.
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:28.240
  • AND I THINK ANOTHER THING WE'RE TALKING A LOT OF
  • 00:20:28.260 --> 00:20:30.220
  • ABOUT LEGACY AND FAITHFULNESS, BUT
  • 00:20:30.240 --> 00:20:32.270
  • FAITHFULNESS IS ABOUT CONSISTENCY, DAY IN AND
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:35.050
  • DAY OUT EVEN IF YOU DON'T SEE ANYTHING HAPPENING,
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:37.210
  • EVEN IF YOU'RE TIRED.
  • 00:20:37.230 --> 00:20:40.020
  • YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE EFFORT GOD'S GOING
  • 00:20:40.040 --> 00:20:42.150
  • TO CROWN IS IT WITH SUCCESS.
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:45.050
  • SO IT'S JUST ABOUT FAITHFULNESS AND
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:47.120
  • CONSISTENCY AND GETTING THE RIGHT PEOPLE AROUND
  • 00:20:47.140 --> 00:20:50.130
  • YOU AS WELL, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:20:50.150 --> 00:20:52.180
  • WE HAD GOOD PEOPLE AROUND US, SO YOU HAVE TO REALLY
  • 00:20:52.200 --> 00:20:54.290
  • GET YOURSELF IN THAT ENVIRONMENT AS BEST AS
  • 00:20:55.010 --> 00:20:57.050
  • YOU CAN, AND YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:20:57.070 --> 00:20:59.170
  • BE YOUR BEST CHEER LEADER BECAUSE YOU CAN'T EXPECT
  • 00:20:59.190 --> 00:21:01.020
  • PEOPLE TO CHEER YOU UP.
  • 00:21:01.040 --> 00:21:03.110
  • THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH.
  • 00:21:03.130 --> 00:21:05.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO BE ABLE TO --LIKE DAVID, ENCOURAGE
  • 00:21:06.010 --> 00:21:08.270
  • YOURSELF THROUGH THOSE DIFFICULT TIMES.
  • 00:21:08.290 --> 00:21:11.130
  • BUT THE KEY AGAIN IS MOVING FORWARD AND BEING
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:14.040
  • CONSISTENT EVEN WHEN YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:16.030
  • BEING CONSISTENT.
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:18.010
  • YOU GOT TO SHOW UP AT LEAST.
  • 00:21:18.030 --> 00:21:19.280
  • IF YOU SHOW UP, GOD WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, JUST
  • 00:21:20.000 --> 00:21:21.150
  • SHOW UP THOUGH.
  • 00:21:21.170 --> 00:21:24.080
  • TOO MANY PEOPLE JUST DON'T SHOW UP.
  • 00:21:24.100 --> 00:21:25.290
  • THEY DON'T THINK THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES.
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:28.000
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO SHOW UP.
  • 00:21:28.020 --> 00:21:29.170
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:21:29.190 --> 00:21:31.090
  • - I THINK ONE MORE THING, MATT, THINKING
  • 00:21:31.110 --> 00:21:33.030
  • ABOUT WHEN I SEE THAT VIDEO AND THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:21:33.050 --> 00:21:35.220
  • ALL THAT, NOT BRAGGING ON ME BUT THOSE 17 YEARS I
  • 00:21:35.240 --> 00:21:38.050
  • WORKED BEHIND THE SCENES LIKE YOU GUYS, I DID MY
  • 00:21:38.070 --> 00:21:40.040
  • BEST TO MAKE MY FATHER LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:42.060
  • I'D SPEND HOURS WORKING ON THE LIGHT AND THE
  • 00:21:42.080 --> 00:21:44.100
  • CAMERA ANGLES.
  • 00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:46.030
  • DURING THOSE 17 YEARS WHEN MY DAD MINISTERED, I
  • 00:21:46.050 --> 00:21:48.010
  • WOULD HAVE TO EDIT THE PROGRAM, HE HAD A HALF
  • 00:21:48.030 --> 00:21:51.040
  • HOUR PROGRAM AS WELL, AND DADDY WOULD SPEAK LIKE 40
  • 00:21:51.060 --> 00:21:53.180
  • MINUTES SO I'D HAVE TO CUT DOWN TEN OR 15
  • 00:21:53.200 --> 00:21:55.190
  • MINUTES OUT OF IT.
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:57.220
  • SO I'D HAVE TO LISTEN TO THAT SERMON 4 OR 5
  • 00:21:57.240 --> 00:21:59.160
  • DIFFERENT TIMES TO GET THE TRAIN OF THOUGHT.
  • 00:21:59.180 --> 00:22:01.180
  • AND MY DAD WAS EXTEMPORANEOUS, SO MAYBE
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:03.220
  • HE WAS TALKING HERE AND TALKING OVER HERE SO I'D
  • 00:22:03.240 --> 00:22:05.200
  • PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER NEVER DREAMING THAT
  • 00:22:05.220 --> 00:22:08.010
  • REALLY GOD WAS GETTING ME PREPARED FOR WHAT
  • 00:22:08.030 --> 00:22:11.080
  • I'M DOING NOW.
  • 00:22:11.100 --> 00:22:13.050
  • I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE A PASTOR, BUT LISTEN, GOD'S
  • 00:22:13.070 --> 00:22:15.210
  • GETTING YOU PREPARED FOR THINGS IN THE FUTURE THAT
  • 00:22:15.230 --> 00:22:18.190
  • YOU DON'T EVEN REALIZE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:22:18.210 --> 00:22:20.260
  • YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER TALKED ME INTO BEING A
  • 00:22:20.280 --> 00:22:23.240
  • PASTOR, BUT ONCE I STEPPED UP TO PASTOR, I
  • 00:22:23.260 --> 00:22:26.080
  • REALIZED I'VE GOT ALL THOSE SERMONS IN ME, ALL
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:27.280
  • THOSE STORIES.
  • 00:22:28.000 --> 00:22:29.160
  • I HAD TO LISTEN TO MY DAD'S TRAIN OF THOUGHT,
  • 00:22:29.180 --> 00:22:31.060
  • SO IT JUST SHOWS YOU HOW GOD IS GOING TO CONNECT
  • 00:22:31.080 --> 00:22:33.100
  • THE DOTS IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:22:33.120 --> 00:22:35.040
  • YOU STAY FAITHFUL.
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:37.030
  • YOU KEEP HONORING HIM, AND AGAIN, I BELIEVE
  • 00:22:37.050 --> 00:22:39.030
  • YOU'VE ALREADY SEEN IT IN THE PAST BUT WHAT YOU
  • 00:22:39.050 --> 00:22:41.110
  • HAVEN'T SEEN -YOU KNOW, YOU HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING
  • 00:22:41.130 --> 00:22:43.240
  • COMPARED TO WHAT GOD'S GOING TO DO IN
  • 00:22:43.260 --> 00:22:45.090
  • YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:46.250
  • YOU KEEP MOVING FORWARD AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEE
  • 00:22:46.270 --> 00:22:48.070
  • THE GOODNESS OF GOD IN GREATER WAYS.
  • 00:22:48.090 --> 00:22:49.290
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:22:50.010 --> 00:22:51.160
  • - WAS THERE EVER A TIME WHERE YOU JUST SAID, I
  • 00:22:51.180 --> 00:22:53.130
  • CAN'T DO THIS?
  • 00:22:53.150 --> 00:22:55.080
  • - I THINK THERE WAS TIMES I FELT THAT WAY,
  • 00:22:55.100 --> 00:22:57.080
  • BUT I HAVE A DETERMINATION IN ME TO
  • 00:22:57.100 --> 00:22:59.290
  • KIND OF LET THAT STIR ME TO DO IT, BUT THERE WERE
  • 00:23:00.030 --> 00:23:02.280
  • TIMES I THOUGHT I DON'T KNOW WHAT I CAN SAY THIS
  • 00:23:03.000 --> 00:23:05.190
  • WEEK, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:23:05.210 --> 00:23:07.190
  • ESPECIALLY EARLY ON BECAUSE I LOOK BACK NOW
  • 00:23:07.210 --> 00:23:10.260
  • AND REALIZE GOD GIVES YOU GRACE FOR EVERY SEASON.
  • 00:23:10.280 --> 00:23:13.220
  • I TOLD MY KIDS THE OTHER DAY, WHEN I LOOK BACK I
  • 00:23:13.240 --> 00:23:16.070
  • THINK HOW DID I PREACH THOSE FIRST SIX MONTHS.
  • 00:23:16.090 --> 00:23:18.180
  • I DIDN'T KNOW HOW LONG TO MAKE A MESSAGE.
  • 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:20.190
  • I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE A MESSAGE, BUT THERE WERE
  • 00:23:20.210 --> 00:23:23.000
  • TIMES I THOUGHT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY
  • 00:23:23.020 --> 00:23:24.220
  • THIS WEEK.
  • 00:23:24.240 --> 00:23:26.150
  • THERE WAS TIMES WHEN I'D SIT THERE AND WRITE FOR
  • 00:23:26.170 --> 00:23:28.150
  • 8 HOURS AND I'D GET ONE PARAGRAPH AND I THOUGHT
  • 00:23:28.170 --> 00:23:30.180
  • MAN, THIS IS GOING TO TAKE ME 7 YEARS TO GET
  • 00:23:30.200 --> 00:23:31.280
  • ONE SERMON.
  • 00:23:32.000 --> 00:23:33.240
  • [LAUGHTER] BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:23:33.260 --> 00:23:35.060
  • YOU JUST KEEPING PUSHING THROUGH IT.
  • 00:23:35.080 --> 00:23:37.110
  • I THINK THOSE WERE ALL TESTING TIMES AND PROVING
  • 00:23:37.130 --> 00:23:39.210
  • TIMES AND GOD SAYING IN A SENSE, HOW BAD DO YOU
  • 00:23:39.230 --> 00:23:41.020
  • WANT IT?
  • 00:23:41.040 --> 00:23:42.150
  • ARE YOU GOING TO STICK WITH IT?
  • 00:23:42.170 --> 00:23:44.080
  • SO EVEN I WAS TALKING EARLIER ABOUT THE FIRST
  • 00:23:44.100 --> 00:23:45.270
  • 12, 13 YEARS OF LAKEWOOD IT STARTED WITH 90 PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:45.290 --> 00:23:49.050
  • IT HAD LESS THAN 200 PEOPLE 12 YEARS LATER.
  • 00:23:49.070 --> 00:23:51.070
  • IT DIDN'T GROW, AND MY DAD WAS A GREAT MINISTER.
  • 00:23:51.090 --> 00:23:53.000
  • HE'S A GREAT PASTOR, AND HE COULD PREACH GREAT
  • 00:23:53.020 --> 00:23:54.280
  • SERMONS, BUT SOMETIMES YOU'RE DOING THE RIGHT
  • 00:23:55.000 --> 00:23:59.290
  • THING AND YOU'RE NOT SEEING GROWTH.
  • 00:24:00.030 --> 00:24:02.030
  • THE WRONG THING IS HAPPENING, YOU THINK MAN,
  • 00:24:02.050 --> 00:24:03.270
  • I NEED TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT OR GOD, YOUR
  • 00:24:03.290 --> 00:24:05.110
  • BLESSING ISN'T ON THIS.
  • 00:24:05.130 --> 00:24:07.010
  • BUT WHEN YOU KNOW IT'S WHAT GOD PUT IN YOUR
  • 00:24:07.030 --> 00:24:08.280
  • HEART YOU JUST GOT TO KEEP DOING IT.
  • 00:24:09.000 --> 00:24:10.270
  • YOU JUST GOT TO KEEP BEING FAITHFUL AND DON'T
  • 00:24:10.290 --> 00:24:12.270
  • COMPARE TO SOMEBODY ELSE OR DON'T LET YOUR
  • 00:24:12.290 --> 00:24:14.240
  • THOUGHTS TALK YOU OUT OF IT BECAUSE LET ME TELL
  • 00:24:14.260 --> 00:24:17.130
  • YOU, YOU'LL COME INTO A TIME WHERE IN 1972 IT WAS
  • 00:24:17.150 --> 00:24:21.200
  • LIKE GOD OPENED A DOOR AND PEOPLE STARTED COMING
  • 00:24:21.220 --> 00:24:24.100
  • FROM LAKEWOOD ALL OVER THE PLACE,
  • 00:24:24.120 --> 00:24:26.050
  • ALL OVER THE CITY.
  • 00:24:26.070 --> 00:24:28.070
  • I BELIEVE YOU'LL COME INTO THOSE TIMES WHERE
  • 00:24:28.090 --> 00:24:30.010
  • YOU'LL HIT A MOMENT, A DESTINY MOMENT WHERE GOD
  • 00:24:30.030 --> 00:24:32.040
  • WILL OPEN UP NEW DOORS AND YOU'LL SEE GROWTH
  • 00:24:32.060 --> 00:24:34.170
  • THAT WILL MAKE UP FOR ALL THE TIME YOU FELT LIKE
  • 00:24:34.190 --> 00:24:37.030
  • YOU WERE FALLING BEHIND.
  • 00:24:37.050 --> 00:24:38.270
  • LISTEN, ONE TOUCH OF GOD'S FAVOR CAN PUT YOU
  • 00:24:38.290 --> 00:24:40.210
  • 15 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD.
  • 00:24:40.230 --> 00:24:42.270
  • AND YOU KEEP BEING FAITHFUL [APPLAUSE] AND
  • 00:24:42.290 --> 00:24:45.000
  • I THINK WHAT'S IMPORTANT IS SOMETIMES SPECIALLY AT
  • 00:24:45.020 --> 00:24:48.240
  • THE OFFICE, YOU KNOW, YOU THINK WELL, NOBODY'S
  • 00:24:48.260 --> 00:24:51.010
  • GIVING ME CREDIT.
  • 00:24:51.030 --> 00:24:53.130
  • PEOPLE ARE LEAVING ME OUT.
  • 00:24:53.150 --> 00:24:55.220
  • THEY'RE PLAYING POLITICS.
  • 00:24:55.240 --> 00:24:57.270
  • BUT YOU GOT TO REALIZE YOU'RE NOT WORKING
  • 00:24:57.290 --> 00:24:59.250
  • UNTO PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:59.270 --> 00:25:01.230
  • YOU'RE WORKING UNTO GOD.
  • 00:25:01.250 --> 00:25:03.230
  • PROMOTION DOESN'T COME FROM PEOPLE.
  • 00:25:03.250 --> 00:25:06.120
  • IT COMES FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:25:06.140 --> 00:25:07.270
  • AND I'VE LEARNED THIS, WHEN IT'S YOUR TIME TO BE
  • 00:25:07.290 --> 00:25:09.180
  • PROMOTED, ALL THE FORCES OF DARKNESS CANNOT STOP
  • 00:25:09.200 --> 00:25:11.090
  • WHAT GOD HAS IN STORE FOR YOU.
  • 00:25:11.110 --> 00:25:12.260
  • PEOPLE CAN'T STOP.
  • 00:25:12.280 --> 00:25:14.130
  • YOUR BOSS CAN'T STOP THEM.
  • 00:25:14.150 --> 00:25:16.020
  • WHEN WE SAW THAT WITH THE COMPAQ CENTER, MATT AND
  • 00:25:16.040 --> 00:25:18.150
  • LAURIE, WHEN GOD OPENED THAT DOOR, WE HAD ALL
  • 00:25:18.170 --> 00:25:20.280
  • KINDS OF OPPOSITION, BIG COMPANIES AGAINST US.
  • 00:25:21.000 --> 00:25:22.290
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:25:23.010 --> 00:25:25.110
  • IT'S LIKE DAVID VERSUS GOLIATH, WHAT GOD HAS
  • 00:25:25.130 --> 00:25:27.200
  • ORDAINED FOR YOU IS COMING YOUR WAY.
  • 00:25:27.220 --> 00:25:29.120
  • - THANK YOU, LORD.
  • 00:25:29.140 --> 00:25:31.000
  • - YOU JUST KEEP BEING FAITHFUL AND WE SAW, YOU
  • 00:25:31.020 --> 00:25:33.150
  • KNOW, COMPANIES THAT SHOULD HAVE GOT THE COMPAQ
  • 00:25:33.170 --> 00:25:36.020
  • CENTER, BUT THROUGH THE FAVOR OF GOD AND
  • 00:25:36.040 --> 00:25:38.140
  • THROUGH GOD CHANGING PEOPLE'S MINDS AND JUST
  • 00:25:38.160 --> 00:25:41.140
  • SUPERNATURAL THINGS IT FELL INTO OUR HANDS, AND
  • 00:25:41.160 --> 00:25:44.000
  • HERE WE ARE NEVER DREAMING WE'D OWN A
  • 00:25:44.020 --> 00:25:46.050
  • BASKETBALL ARENA.
  • 00:25:46.070 --> 00:25:47.200
  • - WOW.
  • 00:25:47.220 --> 00:25:49.020
  • - BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:25:49.040 --> 00:25:50.150
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT LEGACY.
  • 00:25:50.170 --> 00:25:52.000
  • I WANT TO GO A LITTLE BIT BACK IN TIME AND I WANT
  • 00:25:52.020 --> 00:25:54.120
  • TO TALK ABOUT YOUR BOOK JUST FOR A MINUTE, YOUR
  • 00:25:54.140 --> 00:25:56.230
  • BEST LIFE NOW.
  • 00:25:56.250 --> 00:25:58.100
  • YOUR BEST LIFE NOW IF YOU DO RESEARCH ON IT IS ONE
  • 00:25:58.120 --> 00:26:01.150
  • OF A HANDFUL OF BOOKS IN THE CHRISTIAN LITERATURE
  • 00:26:01.170 --> 00:26:04.290
  • THAT HAS SOLD OVER TEN MILLION COPIES, SO THE
  • 00:26:05.010 --> 00:26:08.090
  • IDEA THAT WE CAME TO YOU NOT LONG AGO AND SAID
  • 00:26:08.110 --> 00:26:13.110
  • LET'S DO SOMETHING SPECIAL WITH THIS, AND SO
  • 00:26:13.130 --> 00:26:19.120
  • WHAT WE DID IS WE STARTED WORKING WITH YOU AND
  • 00:26:19.140 --> 00:26:22.100
  • LOOK, AS FAR AS I KNOW, I MEAN I COULD BE WRONG,
  • 00:26:22.120 --> 00:26:25.050
  • BUT AS FAR AS I KNOW YOU'VE NEVER REALLY DONE
  • 00:26:25.070 --> 00:26:29.150
  • ANY TV EXCEPT WHAT YOU DO AT LAKEWOOD CHURCH.
  • 00:26:29.170 --> 00:26:32.140
  • - YES.
  • 00:26:32.160 --> 00:26:34.270
  • - SO THIS IS YOUR FIRST FORAY OUTSIDE OF BEING AT
  • 00:26:34.290 --> 00:26:38.030
  • YOUR OWN CHURCH AND FACILITY, AND YOU CAME
  • 00:26:38.050 --> 00:26:41.180
  • INTO ONE OF OUR STUDIOS.
  • 00:26:41.200 --> 00:26:44.100
  • IT HAPPENED TO BE ONE OF THE STUDIOS JUST ACROSS
  • 00:26:44.120 --> 00:26:46.130
  • THE WAY FROM WHERE WE'RE SITTING RIGHT HERE, AND
  • 00:26:46.150 --> 00:26:49.040
  • WE BASICALLY KIND OF DID A TV SHOW ABOUT THE
  • 00:26:49.060 --> 00:26:52.280
  • SUBJECT MATTER YOUR BEST LIFE NOW.
  • 00:26:53.000 --> 00:26:56.110
  • SO WHAT WAS IN YOUR MIND FOR THIS TV SERIES THAT
  • 00:26:56.130 --> 00:26:59.090
  • IS GOING TO START IN THE FALL?
  • 00:26:59.110 --> 00:27:04.200
  • WE'RE ANNOUNCING THAT WE'RE BRINGING ABOUT 20
  • 00:27:04.220 --> 00:27:08.240
  • NEW TELEVISION PROGRAMS TO THE AIR THIS FALL IN A
  • 00:27:08.260 --> 00:27:13.140
  • KIND OF A PRIME TIMELINE UP THING.
  • 00:27:13.160 --> 00:27:16.030
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE MAKING A LOT OF CHANGES TO OUR
  • 00:27:16.050 --> 00:27:19.290
  • PROGRAMMING, AND ONE OF THEM IS THIS TV SHOW,
  • 00:27:20.010 --> 00:27:22.030
  • YOUR BEST LIFE NOW.
  • 00:27:22.050 --> 00:27:24.010
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK IT'S ABOUT?
  • 00:27:24.030 --> 00:27:26.030
  • - WELL, I THINK, MATT, THAT FIRST BOOK YOUR BEST
  • 00:27:26.050 --> 00:27:28.190
  • LIFE NOW IS JUST LIVING THE ABUNDANT LIFE THAT
  • 00:27:28.210 --> 00:27:31.060
  • GOD HAS IN STORE, SO WHEN YOU APPROACHED ME ABOUT
  • 00:27:31.080 --> 00:27:34.000
  • IT I WAS EXCITED BECAUSE THE MESSAGE THERE IS
  • 00:27:34.020 --> 00:27:36.100
  • TIMELESS AND I LOVED WORKING WITH YOUR TEAM.
  • 00:27:36.120 --> 00:27:38.230
  • AND Y'ALL ILLUSTRATED THE STORIES THAT I TOLD.
  • 00:27:38.250 --> 00:27:41.250
  • IT'S VERY VERY POWERFUL, SO I WAS EXCITED ABOUT IT.
  • 00:27:41.270 --> 00:27:44.180
  • I MEAN, THE BOOK AGAIN NEVER DREAMING THAT IT
  • 00:27:44.200 --> 00:27:47.040
  • WOULD SELL LIKE IT SOLD BUT IT TOUCHED A NERVE
  • 00:27:47.060 --> 00:27:50.260
  • BECAUSE IT TALKS ABOUT IT'S 7 PRINCIPLES TO LIVE
  • 00:27:50.280 --> 00:27:54.090
  • TO REACH YOUR POTENTIAL.
  • 00:27:54.110 --> 00:27:56.200
  • AND IT'S THINGS THAT ARE NOT COMPLICATED.
  • 00:27:56.220 --> 00:27:58.120
  • IT'S THINKING RIGHT, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT?
  • 00:27:58.140 --> 00:28:00.220
  • IT'S SPEAKING THE RIGHT WORDS.
  • 00:28:00.240 --> 00:28:02.160
  • IT'S LETTING GO OF THE PAST.
  • 00:28:02.180 --> 00:28:04.030
  • IT'S LIVING TO GIVE AND NOT TO GET, SO IT'S
  • 00:28:04.050 --> 00:28:05.240
  • POWERFUL PRINCIPLES, VERY PRACTICAL, SO I WAS
  • 00:28:05.260 --> 00:28:08.290
  • EXCITED ABOUT AFTER 15 OR 20 YEARS THAT WE COULD DO
  • 00:28:09.010 --> 00:28:12.290
  • SOMETHING WITH THE BOOK AND THE SERIES HAS TURNED
  • 00:28:13.010 --> 00:28:15.050
  • OUT FANTASTIC.
  • 00:28:15.070 --> 00:28:17.230
  • - SO WHAT WE WERE DEALING WITH IS THAT
  • 00:28:17.250 --> 00:28:21.030
  • THERE ARE NETWORKS AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT COME
  • 00:28:21.050 --> 00:28:23.280
  • TO YOU.
  • 00:28:24.000 --> 00:28:25.290
  • - OH, YEAH.
  • 00:28:26.010 --> 00:28:28.090
  • - ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:28:28.110 --> 00:28:30.060
  • THERE ARE NETWORKS THAT WANT TO DO THIS AND
  • 00:28:30.080 --> 00:28:31.290
  • PRODUCERS THAT EVERYBODY KNOWS THEIR NAME COME TO
  • 00:28:32.010 --> 00:28:33.270
  • YOU GUYS AND THEY SIT AT LAKEWOOD
  • 00:28:33.290 --> 00:28:35.180
  • AND THEY SIT AT LAKEWOOD AND THEN THEY TALK TO YOU.
  • 00:28:35.200 --> 00:28:37.060
  • SO THE FACT THAT YOU CAME AND WE WERE ABLE TO DO
  • 00:28:37.080 --> 00:28:41.050
  • THIS KIND OF FIRST OUTSIDE THE PULPIT THING,
  • 00:28:41.070 --> 00:28:44.260
  • WITH JOEL OSTEEN IT'S SUCH AN HONOR FOR TBN.
  • 00:28:44.280 --> 00:28:47.100
  • SO FIRST OF ALL THANK YOU. WE HAVE A CLIP.

  • JUST TELL YOUR STORY A LITTLE BIT MAMA.
  • 00:31:09.180 --> 00:31:11.150
  • - WELL, IT WAS IN 1981 MATT AND LAURIE THAT
  • 00:31:11.170 --> 00:31:13.260
  • I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LIVER CANCER.
  • 00:31:13.280 --> 00:31:16.070
  • I MEAN, I'D BEEN HEALTHY.
  • 00:31:16.090 --> 00:31:17.170
  • JOEL SAW ME, I RODE A BIG TRACTOR MORE WHEN WE WERE
  • 00:31:17.190 --> 00:31:20.210
  • LIVING OUT IN THE COUNTRY,
  • 00:31:20.230 --> 00:31:23.060
  • AND I LOVED WORKING OUTSIDE.
  • 00:31:23.080 --> 00:31:25.210
  • I DID ALL THE WORK, I DID HARD WORK.
  • 00:31:25.230 --> 00:31:27.170
  • I LABORED FROM THE TIME I SENT THEM OFF TO SCHOOL
  • 00:31:27.190 --> 00:31:30.020
  • IN THE MORNING UNTIL THE TIME I WENT TO BED.
  • 00:31:30.040 --> 00:31:32.070
  • SOMETIMES I WAS UP SHAMPOOING THE CARPET
  • 00:31:32.090 --> 00:31:35.200
  • WHEN THEY ALL WENT TO BED AT NIGHT SO THEY WOULDN'T
  • 00:31:35.220 --> 00:31:37.220
  • WALK ON IT IN THE DAYTIME.
  • 00:31:37.240 --> 00:31:39.100
  • BUT ANYWAY, I WAS JUST DIAGNOSED.
  • 00:31:39.120 --> 00:31:41.030
  • I WENT IN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:31:41.050 --> 00:31:42.100
  • OUR SON PAUL, WHO IS EIGHT YEARS OLDER THAN
  • 00:31:42.120 --> 00:31:45.000
  • JOEL, WAS IN MEDICAL SCHOOL,
  • 00:31:45.020 --> 00:31:46.240
  • AND I WENT TO HIS GRADUATION FROM MEDICAL SCHOOL,
  • 00:31:46.260 --> 00:31:49.070
  • AND HE SAID MOTHER, YOU LOOK A LITTLE BIT OLDER
  • 00:31:49.090 --> 00:31:52.050
  • THAN I EXPECTED YOU TO LOOK, AND YOU'RE A LITTLE JAUNDICE.
  • 00:31:52.070 --> 00:31:55.030
  • I THINK YOU NEED TO GO BE CHECKED OUT.
  • 00:31:55.050 --> 00:31:57.070
  • AND I KNEW I HAD BEEN TIRED BUT I DIDN'T THINK
  • 00:31:57.090 --> 00:31:59.180
  • ABOUT THAT. WE HAD A BIG CONFERENCE COMING.
  • 00:31:59.200 --> 00:32:01.270
  • AND SO I WENT AND CALLED THE DOCTOR,
  • 00:32:01.290 --> 00:32:05.040
  • AND HE SAID JUST COME IN AND LET ME CHECK YOU OUT.
  • 00:32:05.060 --> 00:32:07.290
  • I SAID CAN I GO, BECAUSE I HAVE A CONFERENCE NEXT
  • 00:32:08.010 --> 00:32:10.220
  • WEEK. HE SAID WELL, NO, YOU'LL HAVE TO STAY IN
  • 00:32:10.240 --> 00:32:13.110
  • THE HOSPITAL AT LEAST TWO OR THREE DAYS.
  • 00:32:13.130 --> 00:32:15.060
  • SO I SAID OKAY, I'LL GO.
  • 00:32:15.080 --> 00:32:17.040
  • SO I ENDED UP IN THERE 20 DAYS AND IT WAS
  • 00:32:17.060 --> 00:32:19.260
  • RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMASTIME.
  • 00:32:19.280 --> 00:32:21.210
  • AND I NEVER EXPECTED THE DIAGNOSES OF
  • 00:32:21.230 --> 00:32:23.240
  • CANCER OF THE LIVER.
  • 00:32:23.260 --> 00:32:25.050
  • I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE JUST SOME SIMPLE LITTLE THING.
  • 00:32:25.070 --> 00:32:27.180
  • THEN WHEN HE SAID IT'S SOMETHING TO DO WITH YOUR
  • 00:32:27.200 --> 00:32:29.200
  • LIVER, I THOUGHT MAYBE WHEN I HAD GONE OVERSEAS
  • 00:32:29.220 --> 00:32:32.010
  • TO SOME OF THE COUNTRIES I PICKED UP A PARASITE
  • 00:32:32.030 --> 00:32:34.200
  • OR SOMETHING SIMPLE.
  • 00:32:34.220 --> 00:32:36.200
  • BUT WHEN HE SAID THAT I HAD CANCER OF THE LIVER,
  • 00:32:36.220 --> 00:32:39.200
  • HE MET JOHN DOWNSTAIRS COMING UP TO MY ROOM AND
  • 00:32:39.220 --> 00:32:43.030
  • HE SAID WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO FOR HER.
  • 00:32:43.050 --> 00:32:46.280
  • SHE MAY TAKE CHEMO.
  • 00:32:47.000 --> 00:32:48.190
  • THEY KNEW-- IT WAS DIFFERENT 36 OR 37 YEARS--
  • 00:32:48.210 --> 00:32:50.290
  • I WAS 48 AT THE TIME,
  • 00:32:51.010 --> 00:32:52.210
  • AND I'LL BE 86 IN OCTOBER.
  • 00:32:52.230 --> 00:32:54.160
  • SO SEE HOW GOOD GOD WAS?
  • 00:32:54.180 --> 00:32:56.100
  • SO JOHN SAID, WHEN WE FOUND THAT OUT,
  • 00:32:56.120 --> 00:32:59.010
  • IT WAS ON THE 20TH DAY AFTER THEY HAD DONE EVERY
  • 00:32:59.030 --> 00:33:01.290
  • TEST UNDER THE SUN.
  • 00:33:02.010 --> 00:33:03.260
  • AND I WAS SO TIRED AND WEARY.
  • 00:33:03.280 --> 00:33:05.220
  • BUT I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE WENT HOME
  • 00:33:05.240 --> 00:33:07.270
  • AND WE LAID ON THE FLOOR.
  • 00:33:07.290 --> 00:33:09.280
  • I DIDN'T GO TO BED RIGHT AWAY,
  • 00:33:10.000 --> 00:33:11.180
  • BUT I WENT TO BED AT NIGHT WHEN IT WAS REGULAR
  • 00:33:11.200 --> 00:33:14.130
  • TIME, AND WE GOT UP THE NEXT MORNING AND WE LAID
  • 00:33:14.150 --> 00:33:16.230
  • ON OUR FACES AT THE FOOT OF OUR BED AND HE PRAYED,
  • 00:33:16.250 --> 00:33:20.090
  • AND I NEVER WILL FORGET WHAT HE SAID.
  • 00:33:20.110 --> 00:33:22.120
  • HE SAID JESUS, HEAL MY WIFE.
  • 00:33:22.140 --> 00:33:25.030
  • AND HE PRAYED AND CAST THE DEVIL OUT,
  • 00:33:25.050 --> 00:33:29.020
  • YOU KNOW THE DEMON FORCES OF CANCER.
  • 00:33:29.040 --> 00:33:31.090
  • JESUS SPOKE THE VICTORY WHEN HE DIED.
  • 00:33:31.110 --> 00:33:34.060
  • HE SAID I COMMAND THE CANCER TO LEAVE HER BODY.
  • 00:33:34.080 --> 00:33:38.000
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT, AS FAR AS I WAS CONCERNED IT
  • 00:33:38.020 --> 00:33:40.100
  • LEFT THAT DAY, BUT IT DIDN'T SEEM LIKE IT LEFT
  • 00:33:40.120 --> 00:33:43.030
  • THAT DAY. BUT ANYWAY, AND HE SAID I NEED HER,
  • 00:33:43.050 --> 00:33:46.130
  • JESUS; THE CHURCH NEEDS HER, JESUS;
  • 00:33:46.150 --> 00:33:49.090
  • HER MOTHER AND DADDY NEED HER,
  • 00:33:49.110 --> 00:33:50.230
  • THE CHILDREN NEED HER; AND JESUS, YOU NEED HER.
  • 00:33:50.250 --> 00:33:53.260
  • AND SO I JUST GOT UP FROM THAT FLOOR,
  • 00:33:53.280 --> 00:33:57.000
  • THAT WAS DECEMBER 10TH, AND MY BIBLE WAS ON THE
  • 00:33:57.020 --> 00:33:59.180
  • FOOT OF THE BED, AND I SAID JESUS,
  • 00:33:59.200 --> 00:34:03.280
  • WOULD YOU MIND IF I STOOD ON THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:34:04.000 --> 00:34:06.030
  • AND I PUT IT ON THE FLOOR AND I THOUGHT WOULD
  • 00:34:06.050 --> 00:34:08.040
  • JESUS BE PLEASED IF I STOOD ON HIS WORD?
  • 00:34:08.060 --> 00:34:11.070
  • AND THEN I THOUGHT I DON'T THINK HE'LL CARE,
  • 00:34:11.090 --> 00:34:13.080
  • I THINK HE'LL BE PROUD OF ME.
  • 00:34:13.100 --> 00:34:14.150
  • SO I PUT THAT BIBLE ON THERE.
  • 00:34:14.170 --> 00:34:15.260
  • AND WITH MY LITTLE FOOT THAT HAD POLIO,
  • 00:34:15.280 --> 00:34:18.020
  • I PUT THOSE LITTLE FEET ON THERE AND I SAID
  • 00:34:18.040 --> 00:34:20.200
  • JESUS, I'M STANDING ON YOUR WORD.
  • 00:34:20.220 --> 00:34:22.080
  • SO I WENT AROUND THE HOUSE SAYING DECEMBER 11TH,
  • 00:34:22.100 --> 00:34:26.010
  • I BELIEVE THAT JESUS HEALED ME DECEMBER 11.
  • 00:34:26.030 --> 00:34:28.080
  • EVERYBODY WOULD SAY HOW ARE YOU MISS DODIE?
  • 00:34:28.100 --> 00:34:30.140
  • I NEVER SAID I FEEL BAD. I DON'T FEEL GOOD.
  • 00:34:30.160 --> 00:34:32.230
  • I JUST SAID I'M BLESSED.
  • 00:34:32.250 --> 00:34:34.200
  • JESUS HEALED ME DECEMBER 11TH 1981.
  • 00:34:34.220 --> 00:34:37.000
  • SO I KEPT ON SAYING IT, AND I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:34:37.020 --> 00:34:40.010
  • IT WAS JUST WONDERFUL HOW GOD HELPED ME.
  • 00:34:40.030 --> 00:34:42.160
  • AND THAT'S WHEN I STARTED PRAYING FOR OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:34:42.180 --> 00:34:44.180
  • DON'T YOU THINK JOEL?
  • 00:34:44.200 --> 00:34:45.280
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:34:46.000 --> 00:34:47.060
  • - AND I STILL DO, AND I LOVE PRAYING FOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:34:47.080 --> 00:34:48.290
  • THAT'S MY LIFE IS PRAYING FOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:34:49.010 --> 00:34:50.190
  • - SO YOU-- WHAT WAS THE PRINCIPLE OF WHAT YOU
  • 00:34:50.210 --> 00:34:55.240
  • WERE DOING, IN CASE SOMEBODY JUST, AGAIN,
  • 00:34:55.260 --> 00:34:58.050
  • DOESN'T HAVE A LEGACY, DOESN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:34:58.070 --> 00:35:01.230
  • A DIAGNOSES HAS BEEN HANDED TO THEM,
  • 00:35:01.250 --> 00:35:04.180
  • THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:35:04.200 --> 00:35:06.050
  • WHAT WERE YOU DOING IN SIMPLE TERMS AND EXPLAIN
  • 00:35:06.070 --> 00:35:10.080
  • THAT TO OUR AUDIENCE.
  • 00:35:10.100 --> 00:35:12.010
  • - WELL, JESUS STILL HEALS.
  • 00:35:12.030 --> 00:35:14.220
  • HE SAID JESUS, JESUS SAID, THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:35:14.240 --> 00:35:18.130
  • HEBREWS 13:8, JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY,
  • 00:35:18.150 --> 00:35:21.180
  • TODAY AND FOREVER.
  • 00:35:21.200 --> 00:35:23.010
  • I KNEW HE HADN'T CHANGED.
  • 00:35:23.030 --> 00:35:24.140
  • WE AT ONE TIME WERE IN A DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH.
  • 00:35:24.160 --> 00:35:27.000
  • MY HUSBAND WAS BROUGHT UP IN ANOTHER DENOMINATION,
  • 00:35:27.020 --> 00:35:29.050
  • BUT HE WENT AWAY TO A HOTEL IN HOUSTON AND HE
  • 00:35:29.070 --> 00:35:32.160
  • SAID I'M NOT COMING BACK UNTIL I LEARN MORE ABOUT
  • 00:35:32.180 --> 00:35:35.270
  • WHAT JESUS CAN DO FOR YOU.
  • 00:35:35.290 --> 00:35:38.080
  • AND WE HAD A LITTLE GIRL THAT WAS BORN,
  • 00:35:38.100 --> 00:35:40.170
  • LISA OUR DAUGHTER WAS BORN WITH A BIRTH INJURY.
  • 00:35:40.190 --> 00:35:42.260
  • SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN A WHEELCHAIR IF IT WERE NOT
  • 00:35:42.280 --> 00:35:45.080
  • FOR GOD. SO I JUST TOOK GOD AT HIS WORD.
  • 00:35:45.100 --> 00:35:48.200
  • THE MAIN THING I WOULD SAY WAS ACQUAINT YOURSELF
  • 00:35:48.220 --> 00:35:51.140
  • WITH HIM, GOD, AND HIS SON JESUS,
  • 00:35:51.160 --> 00:35:54.110
  • IT SAYS IN JOB 22, AND BE AT PEACE.
  • 00:35:54.130 --> 00:35:57.220
  • SO WE BEGAN TO ACQUAINT OURSELVES WITH JESUS
  • 00:35:57.240 --> 00:35:59.290
  • MORE ABOUT HEALING.
  • 00:36:00.030 --> 00:36:01.160
  • SOME PEOPLE DON'T HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF HEALING.
  • 00:36:01.180 --> 00:36:03.280
  • PEOPLE PERISH FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:36:04.000 --> 00:36:05.270
  • SO THE MAIN THING I WOULD SAY IS ACQUAINT YOURSELF
  • 00:36:05.290 --> 00:36:08.020
  • WITH JESUS. LEARN WHAT HE CAN DO.
  • 00:36:08.040 --> 00:36:10.050
  • HE NOT ONLY SAVES BUT HE HEALS.
  • 00:36:10.070 --> 00:36:12.170
  • AND HE'S STILL ALIVE TODAY, AND HE WANTS TO HEAL YOU.
  • 00:36:12.190 --> 00:36:16.020
  • HE WANTS YOU TO BE WELL.
  • 00:36:16.040 --> 00:36:17.210
  • HE DIED ON THE CROSS SO THAT WE COULD HAVE
  • 00:36:17.230 --> 00:36:19.210
  • HEALING AND SO THAT WE COULD LIVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE.
  • 00:36:19.230 --> 00:36:22.170
  • IF YOU'RE SICK, YOU DON'T HAVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE,
  • 00:36:22.190 --> 00:36:25.050
  • SO ACQUAINT YOURSELF WITH JESUS.
  • 00:36:25.070 --> 00:36:27.090
  • LEARN ABOUT HIM. LEARN ABOUT HEALING.
  • 00:36:27.110 --> 00:36:29.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:36:29.060 --> 00:36:34.190
  • AND THEN TAKE GOD'S WORD AS IT IS WRITTEN.
  • 00:36:34.210 --> 00:36:38.000
  • IT IS WRITTEN, AND HE WILL NEVER GO BACK ON HIS
  • 00:36:38.020 --> 00:36:40.260
  • PROMISES. SOMETIMES WE BREAK OUR PROMISES TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:36:40.280 --> 00:36:44.120
  • SOMETIMES I DO. I DON'T INTEND TO BUT I DO.
  • 00:36:44.140 --> 00:36:46.210
  • JESUS WOULD NEVER BREAK A PROMISE TO US.
  • 00:36:46.230 --> 00:36:49.000
  • HE ALWAYS WILL KEEP HIS WORD.
  • 00:36:49.020 --> 00:36:51.060
  • SO WHATEVER YOU NEED FROM GOD, ASK HIM.
  • 00:36:51.080 --> 00:36:53.260
  • JUST ASK HIM, AND JESUS WILL DO IT FOR YOU
  • 00:36:53.280 --> 00:36:56.150
  • BECAUSE HE HAS NO FAVORITES AND
  • 00:36:56.170 --> 00:36:58.040
  • HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU.
  • 00:36:58.060 --> 00:36:59.220
  • HE LOVES YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE.
  • 00:36:59.240 --> 00:37:02.240
  • - UM, JOEL, THE IDEA THAT SOMETIMES DOESN'T
  • 00:37:02.260 --> 00:37:13.050
  • GET TALKED ABOUT ENOUGH IN OUR GENERATION,
  • 00:37:13.070 --> 00:37:16.230
  • THE HEALING OF A BODY, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE LIVING
  • 00:37:16.250 --> 00:37:25.260
  • PROOF THAT WHEN JESUS SAID HE WOULD DO IT,
  • 00:37:25.280 --> 00:37:31.130
  • YOU JUST HAVE TO ULTIMATELY START BELIEVING IT.
  • 00:37:31.150 --> 00:37:35.060
  • HELP SOMEBODY THAT SAYS WHEN YOU'RE SICK AND YOU
  • 00:37:35.080 --> 00:37:38.190
  • SAY YOU'RE NOT SICK, YOU'RE JUST BASICALLY
  • 00:37:38.210 --> 00:37:40.280
  • TRYING TO AVOID THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:37:41.000 --> 00:37:43.090
  • WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT?
  • 00:37:43.110 --> 00:37:45.050
  • - I DON'T THINK IT'S DENYING,
  • 00:37:45.070 --> 00:37:46.210
  • I DON'T BELIEVE IN DENYING THE PROBLEM,
  • 00:37:46.230 --> 00:37:48.160
  • BUT I JUST TELL PEOPLE AGREE WITH WHAT
  • 00:37:48.180 --> 00:37:50.080
  • GOD SAYS ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:37:50.100 --> 00:37:52.100
  • SO THAT'S WHAT MY MOM-- ONE PART YOU DIDN'T TELL MOM
  • 00:37:52.120 --> 00:37:55.000
  • IS EVERY, SHE GOT A LIST OF SCRIPTURES THAT EVERY
  • 00:37:55.020 --> 00:37:58.180
  • DAY SHE WENT OVER AND OVER HEALING SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:37:58.200 --> 00:38:01.010
  • - I STILL DO.
  • 00:38:01.030 --> 00:38:02.090
  • I DON'T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT READING IT.
  • 00:38:02.110 --> 00:38:04.100
  • - SO SOMETIMES WE'RE LEAVING EARLY IN THE
  • 00:38:04.120 --> 00:38:06.080
  • MORNING, MY MOM WILL DO IT AT 12:01 AT NIGHT SO
  • 00:38:06.100 --> 00:38:08.140
  • SHE'S DONE IT FOR THAT DAY.
  • 00:38:08.160 --> 00:38:09.270
  • SHE SAYS SHE TAKES THOSE SCRIPTURES ARE LIKE HER
  • 00:38:09.290 --> 00:38:13.120
  • MEDICINE. SO I WANT TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE,
  • 00:38:13.140 --> 00:38:15.240
  • YOU CAN SAY WELL THE MEDICAL REPORT IS BAD,
  • 00:38:15.260 --> 00:38:19.110
  • I DON'T FEEL GOOD, IT'S NOT LOOKING-- OR YOU CAN
  • 00:38:19.130 --> 00:38:21.160
  • SAY I BELIEVE GOD IS RESTORING HEALTH BACK
  • 00:38:21.180 --> 00:38:25.050
  • INTO ME, I WILL LIVE AND NOT DIE,
  • 00:38:25.070 --> 00:38:27.110
  • I AM STRONG IN THE LORD AND THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.
  • 00:38:27.130 --> 00:38:29.070
  • I BELIEVE YOU HAVE TO RECEIVE THE HEALING IN
  • 00:38:29.090 --> 00:38:31.180
  • YOUR MIND, IN YOUR SPIRIT BEFORE IT WILL
  • 00:38:31.200 --> 00:38:33.200
  • TAKE PLACE IN YOUR BODY.
  • 00:38:33.220 --> 00:38:35.150
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR MIND AND YOUR SPIRIT
  • 00:38:35.170 --> 00:38:37.000
  • FIGHTING YOUR BODY.
  • 00:38:37.020 --> 00:38:38.140
  • SO I WOULD RATHER, EVEN THE SAINTS OF OLD IT SAYS
  • 00:38:38.160 --> 00:38:41.150
  • THEY DIED IN FAITH.
  • 00:38:41.170 --> 00:38:43.080
  • I WOULD RATHER DIE IN FAITH,
  • 00:38:43.100 --> 00:38:44.210
  • DIE BELIEVING THAT HEALING IS COMING.
  • 00:38:44.230 --> 00:38:46.200
  • IF IT DOESN'T COME HERE IT'S GONNA COME THERE.
  • 00:38:46.220 --> 00:38:48.270
  • BUT IT'S THAT FACT OF JUST I THINK A LOT OF
  • 00:38:48.290 --> 00:38:51.100
  • TIMES WE JUST ACCEPT IT.
  • 00:38:51.120 --> 00:38:52.270
  • HEY MAN, THE DOCTOR SAID THIS,
  • 00:38:52.290 --> 00:38:54.130
  • AND THIS IS WHAT THE DIAGNOSES IS,
  • 00:38:54.150 --> 00:38:56.040
  • AND THAT'S WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN FOR ME.
  • 00:38:56.060 --> 00:38:58.150
  • WELL, I BELIEVE YOU CAN GIVE BIRTH TO THAT AS WELL.
  • 00:38:58.170 --> 00:39:01.120
  • YOU CAN LET THAT KEEP YOU FROM YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:39:01.140 --> 00:39:04.100
  • SO I THINK IT'S MORE THAN JUST BEING POSITIVE.
  • 00:39:04.120 --> 00:39:06.290
  • IT'S GETTING GOD'S WORD ON THE INSIDE OF YOU,
  • 00:39:07.010 --> 00:39:08.260
  • AGREEING WITH WHAT HE SAYS,
  • 00:39:08.280 --> 00:39:11.040
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M GONNA LIVE AND NOT DIE,
  • 00:39:11.060 --> 00:39:13.010
  • GOD IS RESTORING HEALTH BACK INTO ME.
  • 00:39:13.030 --> 00:39:16.100
  • JUST THAT ATTITUDE OF FAITH ON THE INSIDE,
  • 00:39:16.120 --> 00:39:18.210
  • NOT GIVING UP, NOT LETTING WITH ALL RESPECT
  • 00:39:18.230 --> 00:39:23.010
  • DOCTORS DON'T HAVE THE FINAL SAY,
  • 00:39:23.030 --> 00:39:24.210
  • GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY.
  • 00:39:24.230 --> 00:39:26.140
  • GOD CAN DO WHAT MEDICINE CANNOT DO,
  • 00:39:26.160 --> 00:39:28.130
  • SO GET THAT DOWN ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:39:28.150 --> 00:39:30.020
  • I EVEN LIKE THIS THOUGHT TOO IS DON'T SEE YOURSELF
  • 00:39:30.040 --> 00:39:33.000
  • AS A SICK PERSON TRYING TO GET WELL.
  • 00:39:33.020 --> 00:39:35.100
  • I'M A WELL PERSON FIGHTING OFF SICKNESS.
  • 00:39:35.120 --> 00:39:38.040
  • THAT'S WHO GOD CREATED ME TO BE.
  • 00:39:38.060 --> 00:39:39.220
  • I'M NOT AN ADDICTED PERSON TRYING TO GET FREE.
  • 00:39:39.240 --> 00:39:42.020
  • I'M A FREE PERSON FIGHTING AN ADDICTION.
  • 00:39:42.040 --> 00:39:44.290
  • I THINK YOU HAVE TO TALK TO YOURSELF ALL THROUGH
  • 00:39:45.010 --> 00:39:47.050
  • THE DAY, I AM HEALED, I AM WHOLE, I AM HEALTHY,
  • 00:39:47.070 --> 00:39:51.040
  • I AM STRONG, I AM ENERGETIC.
  • 00:39:51.060 --> 00:39:53.160
  • AGAIN WITH LONG LIFE GOD WILL SATISFY ME.
  • 00:39:53.180 --> 00:39:56.050
  • THAT'S A LONG ANSWER TO ONE QUESTION BUT THERE IT WAS.
  • 00:39:56.070 --> 00:39:58.170
  • - THAT'S A GOOD ANSWER!
  • 00:39:58.190 --> 00:40:00.090
  • - LAST QUESTION, MAMA.
  • 00:40:00.110 --> 00:40:02.280
  • IF YOU CAME FROM A TRADITIONAL CHURCH
  • 00:40:03.000 --> 00:40:06.080
  • BACKGROUND THAT DIDN'T TALK ABOUT GIFTS OF
  • 00:40:06.100 --> 00:40:10.000
  • HEALING AND GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT,
  • 00:40:10.020 --> 00:40:12.100
  • SO YOU CAME FROM A DENOMINATION THAT JUST
  • 00:40:12.120 --> 00:40:14.060
  • DIDN'T TEACH THAT, DO YOU FIND THAT IT WAS EASIER
  • 00:40:14.080 --> 00:40:17.210
  • FOR YOU TO CONFESS YOUR HEALING,
  • 00:40:17.230 --> 00:40:21.200
  • OR WERE YOU HAVING TO, YOU WEREN'T HAVING TO
  • 00:40:21.220 --> 00:40:24.140
  • UNLEARN ANYTHING OR WERE YOU?
  • 00:40:24.160 --> 00:40:26.290
  • - NO.
  • 00:40:27.010 --> 00:40:28.160
  • - YOU JUST DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:40:28.180 --> 00:40:30.060
  • - WHEN WE WENT TO THE HOSPITAL,
  • 00:40:30.080 --> 00:40:31.210
  • WE WOULD PRAY "GOD, IF IT'S YOUR WILL,
  • 00:40:31.230 --> 00:40:34.000
  • HEAL THIS PERSON AND MAKE THEM WELL."
  • 00:40:34.020 --> 00:40:36.110
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT IT WAS GOD'S WILL ALREADY
  • 00:40:36.130 --> 00:40:37.290
  • THAT HE WANTED THEM WELL.
  • 00:40:38.010 --> 00:40:40.000
  • SO WE HAD TO CHANGE OUR WAY OF PRAYING WHEN WE
  • 00:40:40.020 --> 00:40:41.230
  • WENT TO THE HOSPITALS.
  • 00:40:41.250 --> 00:40:43.160
  • - SO FOR YOU, YOU BASICALLY JUST TOOK THE
  • 00:40:43.180 --> 00:40:47.030
  • WORD AT FACE VALUE.
  • 00:40:47.050 --> 00:40:49.120
  • - IT WAS EITHER THAT OR DEATH.
  • 00:40:49.140 --> 00:40:51.210
  • SO I WANTED TO LIVE.
  • 00:40:51.230 --> 00:40:53.130
  • I WANTED TO LIVE TO BE AN OLD LADY.
  • 00:40:53.150 --> 00:40:56.040
  • I'M OLD NOW.
  • 00:40:56.060 --> 00:40:59.250
  • - I TELL YOU WHAT, IF YOU'RE SICK,
  • 00:40:59.270 --> 00:41:03.090
  • I WANT-- THE NUMBER ONE PERSON I WANT TO CALL AND
  • 00:41:03.110 --> 00:41:06.280
  • PRAY FOR ME IS DODIE OSTEEN.
  • 00:41:07.000 --> 00:41:09.000
  • MOM, WOULD YOU PRAY FOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:41:09.020 --> 00:41:11.060
  • - I WOULD BE GLAD TO.
  • 00:41:11.080 --> 00:41:12.270
  • FATHER I PRAY, ANYBODY HERE THAT HAS ANYTHING
  • 00:41:12.290 --> 00:41:14.280
  • WRONG IN THEIR BODIES, JUST LIFT YOUR HAND
  • 00:41:15.000 --> 00:41:17.040
  • WOULD YOU PLEASE? FATHER, I PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE
  • 00:41:17.060 --> 00:41:19.160
  • HERE TONIGHT AND THE PEOPLE WATCHING.
  • 00:41:19.180 --> 00:41:21.130
  • JESUS, SOME OF THEM NEED MIRACLES AND THEY NEED
  • 00:41:21.150 --> 00:41:24.020
  • BIG TIME MIRACLES, JESUS.
  • 00:41:24.040 --> 00:41:25.270
  • FATHER, YOU HAVE NO FAVORITES.
  • 00:41:25.290 --> 00:41:27.270
  • YOU'RE IN THE MIRACLE WORKING BUSINESS, SO I
  • 00:41:27.290 --> 00:41:30.170
  • ASK YOU TO DO A MIRACLE IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:41:30.190 --> 00:41:33.190
  • THAT NAME THAT NEVER CHANGES AND NEVER WILL CHANGE.
  • 00:41:33.210 --> 00:41:36.270
  • I SPEAK TO EVERY SICKNESS AND DISEASE THAT'S
  • 00:41:36.290 --> 00:41:39.160
  • REPRESENTED AMONG THESE PEOPLE TONIGHT HERE AND
  • 00:41:39.180 --> 00:41:42.150
  • THAT ARE IN THE VIEWING AUDIENCE,
  • 00:41:42.170 --> 00:41:44.290
  • AND I COMMAND IT TO WHITHER AND DIE AND LEAVE
  • 00:41:45.010 --> 00:41:47.080
  • JUST LIKE JESUS SPOKE TO THE FIG TREE,
  • 00:41:47.100 --> 00:41:49.240
  • I SPEAK TO IT AND I SAY EVERY ROOT OF YOU,
  • 00:41:49.260 --> 00:41:52.210
  • LEAVE THEIR BODIES IN JESUS NAME!
  • 00:41:52.230 --> 00:41:55.230
  • FATHER, LET REGENERATION COME,
  • 00:41:55.250 --> 00:41:57.180
  • GIVE CORRECTIVE MIRACLES, CREATIVE MIRACLES,
  • 00:41:57.200 --> 00:42:00.090
  • WHATEVER THEY NEED FATHER,
  • 00:42:00.110 --> 00:42:01.180
  • JUST GIVE THEM A MIRACLE.
  • 00:42:01.200 --> 00:42:03.060
  • SOME OF THEM ARE LAYING ON THEIR BEDS NOW DYING,
  • 00:42:03.080 --> 00:42:06.080
  • FATHER. THEY HAVE NO HOPE, BUT YOU ARE THEIR HOPE AND
  • 00:42:06.100 --> 00:42:09.000
  • THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE THEIR HOPE,
  • 00:42:09.020 --> 00:42:11.080
  • SO I SPEAK TO DISEASES, I COMMAND THEM TO LEAVE AND
  • 00:42:11.100 --> 00:42:14.020
  • FOREVER LEAVE AND NEVER EVER COME BACK THE SECOND
  • 00:42:14.040 --> 00:42:17.280
  • TIME, IN JESUS NAME.
  • 00:42:18.000 --> 00:42:19.200
  • GOD, DO MIRACLES AND I PRAY THAT PEOPLE WILL
  • 00:42:19.220 --> 00:42:22.020
  • WRITE IN AND SAY WE GOT HEALED AND THEY WILL
  • 00:42:22.040 --> 00:42:25.000
  • SERVE YOU, FATHER, ALL THEIR DAYS, JESUS,
  • 00:42:25.020 --> 00:42:27.200
  • AND THEY WILL TELL OTHERS ABOUT YOU, FATHER.
  • 00:42:27.220 --> 00:42:30.040
  • AND JESUS, THEY WILL PRAY FOR OTHER PEOPLE AND
  • 00:42:30.060 --> 00:42:32.090
  • THEY WILL SEE MIRACLES.
  • 00:42:32.110 --> 00:42:33.230
  • JESUS, YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO HAVE ANYBODY PRAY
  • 00:42:33.250 --> 00:42:36.050
  • FOR THEM BECAUSE YOU'RE RIGHT THERE WITH THEM IN
  • 00:42:36.070 --> 00:42:38.150
  • THEIR HEARTS AND THEIR HOMES AND THEIR HOSPITAL.
  • 00:42:38.170 --> 00:42:41.020
  • JESUS, MAY PEACE COME AND TORMENTING SPIRITS AND
  • 00:42:41.040 --> 00:42:44.020
  • FEAR LEAVE THOSE PEOPLE, AND MAY THE PEACE OF GOD
  • 00:42:44.040 --> 00:42:47.190
  • THAT PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING GUARD THEIR
  • 00:42:47.210 --> 00:42:49.280
  • HEARTS AND MINDS.
  • 00:42:50.000 --> 00:42:51.070
  • NOW FATHER, WE EXPECT FOR YOU TO HAVE PEOPLE WRITE
  • 00:42:51.090 --> 00:42:53.200
  • IN AND TELL THEM OR CALL AND TELL THEM JESUS THAT
  • 00:42:53.220 --> 00:42:56.070
  • I WAS HEALED ON THAT NIGHT WHEN Y'ALL
  • 00:42:56.090 --> 00:42:58.180
  • TOOK TIME TO PRAY.
  • 00:42:58.200 --> 00:43:00.030
  • AND JESUS, WE GLADLY PRAY FOR THEM, JESUS.
  • 00:43:00.050 --> 00:43:03.220
  • THAT'S OUR LIFE, JESUS, IS TO PRAY FOR OTHERS.
  • 00:43:03.240 --> 00:43:06.080
  • WE WANT THESE MINISTERS, EVERYBODY LOOK AT YOUR
  • 00:43:06.100 --> 00:43:08.070
  • HANDS, WOULD YOU?
  • 00:43:08.090 --> 00:43:09.220
  • MAY THE ANOINTING OF GOD COME INTO THEIR HANDS AND
  • 00:43:09.240 --> 00:43:11.270
  • I PRAY AS THEY LAY HANDS ON SICK PEOPLE IN THEIR
  • 00:43:11.290 --> 00:43:14.030
  • CHURCHES, AS PEOPLE LAY HANDS ON SICK PEOPLE
  • 00:43:14.050 --> 00:43:16.130
  • HERE, AS LAURIE AND MATT LAY HANDS ON SICK PEOPLE,
  • 00:43:16.150 --> 00:43:20.170
  • THEY'LL SEE MIRACLES AND SIGNS AND WONDERS AND
  • 00:43:20.190 --> 00:43:22.180
  • JESUS, WE EVEN WANT TO SEE PEOPLE COME OUT OF
  • 00:43:22.200 --> 00:43:25.180
  • WHEEL CHAIRS, FATHER.
  • 00:43:25.200 --> 00:43:27.080
  • AND WE WANT TO SEE PEOPLE RAISED FROM THE DEAD LIKE
  • 00:43:27.100 --> 00:43:29.140
  • THEY SEE IN NIGERIA AND OTHER PLACES, FATHER.
  • 00:43:29.160 --> 00:43:32.080
  • GOD DO MIRACLES BECAUSE YOU'RE A MIRACLE WORKER,
  • 00:43:32.100 --> 00:43:35.150
  • AND WE BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL NEVER EVER EVER
  • 00:43:35.170 --> 00:43:38.240
  • CHANGE, AND ALL THE PEOPLE SAID AMEN!
  • 00:43:38.260 --> 00:43:41.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:41.140 --> 00:43:46.100
  • - MAMA DODIE, BRINGIN' IT! I LOVE IT!
  • 00:43:46.120 --> 00:43:49.000
  • YOUR BEST LIFE NOW WITH JOEL AND VICTORIA OSTEEN,
  • 00:43:49.020 --> 00:43:51.150
  • WATCH THIS CLIP.
  • 00:43:51.170 --> 00:43:53.190
  • - OUR MIND IS LIKE A COMPUTER.
  • 00:43:53.210 --> 00:43:56.090
  • HOW YOU PROGRAM IT IS THE WAY IT'S GOING TO FUNCTION.
  • 00:43:56.110 --> 00:43:58.290
  • YOU CAN HAVE THE MOST POWERFUL COMPUTER MADE,
  • 00:43:59.010 --> 00:44:01.220
  • BUT IF YOU PUT THE WRONG SOFTWARE IN,
  • 00:44:01.240 --> 00:44:04.000
  • IT'S NOT GOING TO FUNCTION LIKE IT WAS DESIGNED.
  • 00:44:04.020 --> 00:44:06.160
  • IN THE SAME WAY, WHEN GOD CREATED YOU,
  • 00:44:06.180 --> 00:44:09.140
  • HE STEPPED BACK AND SAID ANOTHER MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:44:09.160 --> 00:44:13.020
  • THE REASON WE DON'T ALWAYS LIVE THIS ABUNDANT
  • 00:44:13.040 --> 00:44:15.060
  • LIFE IS BECAUSE WE'VE ALLOWED VIRUSES TO
  • 00:44:15.080 --> 00:44:17.260
  • CONTAMINATE OUR SOFTWARE.
  • 00:44:17.280 --> 00:44:19.270
  • WE THINK I'LL NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL,
  • 00:44:19.290 --> 00:44:22.060
  • I'M NOT THAT TALENTED, I'LL NEVER BREAK THIS
  • 00:44:22.080 --> 00:44:24.060
  • ADDICTION, I'VE HAD IT TOO LONG.
  • 00:44:24.080 --> 00:44:26.130
  • YOU HAVE TO GET RID OF THOSE VIRUSES,
  • 00:44:26.150 --> 00:44:28.280
  • REPROGRAM YOUR THINKING.
  • 00:44:29.000 --> 00:44:30.220
  • ALL THROUGH THE DAY YOU SHOULD DWELL ON WHAT YOUR
  • 00:44:30.240 --> 00:44:33.020
  • CREATOR SAYS ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:44:33.040 --> 00:44:35.040
  • IF YOUR THINKING IS LIMITED,
  • 00:44:35.060 --> 00:44:37.080
  • YOUR LIFE WILL BE LIMITED.

  • WE'RE SO PROUD OF THAT AND IT'S A FANTASTIC,
  • 00:44:58.030 --> 00:45:01.170
  • STILL IN POST-PRODUCTION AND ALL THAT,
  • 00:45:01.190 --> 00:45:03.150
  • BUT IT WILL BE ON THE AIR WHEN IT'S READY.
  • 00:45:03.170 --> 00:45:06.190
  • PASTOR DANIEL FLOYD, WE WANTED TO INTRODUCE YOU
  • 00:45:06.210 --> 00:45:11.030
  • INTO THIS BROADCAST, AND I LOVE DOING THIS TO
  • 00:45:11.050 --> 00:45:14.280
  • PASTORS, JUST MAKING YOU KIND OF-- WHAT DID YOU HEAR
  • 00:45:15.000 --> 00:45:19.240
  • DURING THIS BROADCAST AND HOW DO YOU WANT TO PUT A
  • 00:45:19.260 --> 00:45:22.180
  • BIG KIND OF BOW TIE ON THE END OF IT?
  • 00:45:22.200 --> 00:45:24.240
  • - SURE. I LOVE THE IDEA OF LEGACY.
  • 00:45:24.260 --> 00:45:27.080
  • I ALSO HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF MY DAD BEING MY PASTOR
  • 00:45:27.100 --> 00:45:29.210
  • GROWING UP AND LOVED THE IDEA OF GOD'S FAITHFULNESS.
  • 00:45:29.230 --> 00:45:33.250
  • MY DAD WAS MY PASTOR, AND I WAS SHARING EARLIER
  • 00:45:33.270 --> 00:45:36.120
  • HOW SPECIAL IT IS TO BE HERE.
  • 00:45:36.140 --> 00:45:38.290
  • IN 7TH GRADE I WAS IN CHURCH,
  • 00:45:39.010 --> 00:45:42.070
  • MY DAD WAS WALKING TO THE BACK OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:45:42.090 --> 00:45:44.090
  • IT WAS THAT KIND OF CHURCH WHERE YOU SHOOK
  • 00:45:44.110 --> 00:45:46.000
  • EVERYBODY'S HAND AT THE END OF THE SERVICE AT THE
  • 00:45:46.020 --> 00:45:48.000
  • DOOR, AND HE ALMOST DIDN'T MAKE IT BACK.
  • 00:45:48.020 --> 00:45:52.010
  • ALMOST FELL DOWN. HAD A GUY HELP HIM WALK BACK,
  • 00:45:52.030 --> 00:45:55.090
  • AND THAT BEGAN A SEVEN YEAR JOURNEY OF SICKNESS,
  • 00:45:55.110 --> 00:45:58.110
  • OF LOSING MOBILITY, OF REALLY BECOMING HOME
  • 00:45:58.130 --> 00:46:01.220
  • BOUND, AND WE NEVER COULD FIND AN ANSWER.
  • 00:46:01.240 --> 00:46:04.220
  • IT'S OFTEN FRUSTRATING, MAYBE THERE'S VIEWERS
  • 00:46:04.240 --> 00:46:06.290
  • HERE WATCHING THAT YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A SEASON
  • 00:46:07.010 --> 00:46:09.050
  • WHERE IT'S LIKE IF I COULD JUST HAVE AN
  • 00:46:09.070 --> 00:46:10.250
  • ANSWER, I COULD DEAL WITH IT. AND WE
  • 00:46:10.270 --> 00:46:12.200
  • WERE JUST IN A SEASON WHERE THERE WAS NO ANSWER.
  • 00:46:12.220 --> 00:46:14.220
  • GREW UP IN A DENOMINATION AND A CHURCH SETTING
  • 00:46:14.240 --> 00:46:18.010
  • WHERE WE DIDN'T KNOW IF WE BELIEVED IN HEALING,
  • 00:46:18.030 --> 00:46:20.100
  • AND ALL THOSE KIND OF THINGS,
  • 00:46:20.120 --> 00:46:22.190
  • SO YOU KIND OF FEEL A LITTLE HOPELESS.
  • 00:46:22.210 --> 00:46:24.200
  • MY DAD WENT THROUGH A JOURNEY,
  • 00:46:24.220 --> 00:46:26.090
  • IT TOOK FIVE OR SO YEARS TO FINALLY FIND A
  • 00:46:26.110 --> 00:46:28.120
  • DIAGNOSES, BUT IT WAS IN THAT SEASON WHERE HE WAS
  • 00:46:28.140 --> 00:46:30.150
  • HOME BOUND THAT WE WOULD COME HOME FROM SCHOOL,
  • 00:46:30.170 --> 00:46:33.230
  • OR MY MOM WOULD COME HOME FROM WORK,
  • 00:46:33.250 --> 00:46:35.110
  • AND HE WOULD SAY YOU KNOW,
  • 00:46:35.130 --> 00:46:36.210
  • I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TO DO SO I WAS FLIPPING THROUGH
  • 00:46:36.230 --> 00:46:40.010
  • THE CHANNELS AND I STOPPED ON THAT TBN.
  • 00:46:40.030 --> 00:46:42.050
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:46:42.070 --> 00:46:43.290
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT WOMEN PREACHERS,
  • 00:46:44.010 --> 00:46:46.290
  • BUT THERE'S A LADY NAMED JOYCE AND SHE HAD
  • 00:46:47.010 --> 00:46:49.030
  • A GOOD MESSAGE TODAY.
  • 00:46:49.050 --> 00:46:50.180
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:50.200 --> 00:46:52.060
  • AND JUST LITTLE BY LITTLE,
  • 00:46:52.080 --> 00:46:54.160
  • GOD WAS JUST WORKING IN HIS LIFE.
  • 00:46:54.180 --> 00:46:56.090
  • ANYWAY, AFTER YEAR SEVEN, GOD HEALED HIM
  • 00:46:56.110 --> 00:46:59.270
  • MIRACULOUSLY OF THE DISEASE.
  • 00:46:59.290 --> 00:47:02.110
  • - AND YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A DISEASE
  • 00:47:02.130 --> 00:47:04.050
  • THAT TOOK HIS MOBILITY.
  • 00:47:04.070 --> 00:47:05.210
  • THIS IS NOT SOME KIND OF "I'M NOT FEELING WELL".
  • 00:47:05.230 --> 00:47:08.160
  • THIS WAS A DEBILITATING KIND OF LIFE-ENDING THING
  • 00:47:08.180 --> 00:47:12.220
  • AND CERTAINLY MOBILITY-ENDING THING.
  • 00:47:12.240 --> 00:47:15.090
  • DID YOU EVER GET ANY KIND OF A DIAGNOSES OUT OF THE--
  • 00:47:15.110 --> 00:47:19.180
  • - WE DID. IT WAS ABOUT FIVE YEARS IN,
  • 00:47:19.200 --> 00:47:22.120
  • A DOCTOR FROM LOUISIANA MOVED TO TENNESSEE WHERE
  • 00:47:22.140 --> 00:47:25.150
  • WE WERE LIVING, JUST FOR A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF
  • 00:47:25.170 --> 00:47:27.250
  • TIME. MY DAD WAS KIND OF IN A PLACE WHERE HE WAS
  • 00:47:27.270 --> 00:47:31.050
  • KIND OF TIRED OF GOING TO DOCTORS AND
  • 00:47:31.070 --> 00:47:32.120
  • HEARING THE SAME THING.
  • 00:47:32.140 --> 00:47:34.080
  • YOU'RE STRESSED, IT'S WORK-RELATED WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:47:34.100 --> 00:47:39.000
  • IN THE MINISTRY, WHATEVER IT MAY BE,
  • 00:47:39.020 --> 00:47:40.250
  • AND SOMEBODY TOLD ME YOU NEED TO GO SEE THIS
  • 00:47:40.270 --> 00:47:43.000
  • DOCTOR AND SAID I DON'T WANT TO DO IT.
  • 00:47:43.020 --> 00:47:44.180
  • FINALLY HE DECIDED TO GO AND IN FIVE MINUTES THE
  • 00:47:44.200 --> 00:47:46.130
  • DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HIM AND IT WAS A RARE DYSTONIA,
  • 00:47:46.150 --> 00:47:49.040
  • NEUROLOGICAL DISEASE, AND WITHIN A
  • 00:47:49.060 --> 00:47:52.190
  • MONTH HE WAS BACK MOBILE, ABLE TO WALK.
  • 00:47:52.210 --> 00:47:56.050
  • AND SO FOR SEVERAL YEARS IT WAS IMPROVING,
  • 00:47:56.070 --> 00:47:59.230
  • GETTING BETTER, BUT THEN IT TOOK ANOTHER DOWNTURN.
  • 00:47:59.250 --> 00:48:03.060
  • SO THIS DOCTOR MOVED BACK TO LOUISIANA,
  • 00:48:03.080 --> 00:48:06.020
  • ASKED HIM TO COME DOWN, AND THERE WAS KIND OF A
  • 00:48:06.040 --> 00:48:09.010
  • GROUP OF DOCTORS THAT SPECIALIZED IN THIS
  • 00:48:09.030 --> 00:48:10.200
  • FIELD, THEY ALL CAME TOGETHER.
  • 00:48:10.220 --> 00:48:12.090
  • THEY PUT HIM ON A MEDICINE HOLIDAY,
  • 00:48:12.110 --> 00:48:14.040
  • MEANING THEY TOOK HIM OFF OF EVERYTHING TO GIVE HIM
  • 00:48:14.060 --> 00:48:15.280
  • A BASELINE, AND WHEN THEY DID,
  • 00:48:16.000 --> 00:48:17.190
  • GOD HEALED HIM IN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:48:17.210 --> 00:48:21.030
  • THE DOCTORS SAID REVEREND FLOYD,
  • 00:48:21.050 --> 00:48:23.030
  • WE HAVE NO EXPLANATION OTHER THAN DIVINE HEALING.
  • 00:48:23.050 --> 00:48:26.150
  • - WOW.
  • 00:48:26.170 --> 00:48:28.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:48:28.130 --> 00:48:33.120
  • - SO AT THAT POINT, DID YOU BELIEVE IN DIVINE HEALING?
  • 00:48:33.140 --> 00:48:37.070
  • - SO SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE THAT,
  • 00:48:37.090 --> 00:48:40.100
  • THROUGH WATCHING TBN, ME PERSONALLY,
  • 00:48:40.120 --> 00:48:43.200
  • MY LIFE BEGAN TO OPEN UP, AND I REALLY BEGAN TO
  • 00:48:43.220 --> 00:48:46.130
  • THINK IF ALL THERE IS TO GOD IS WHAT I'VE
  • 00:48:46.150 --> 00:48:50.140
  • EXPERIENCED, I DON'T KNOW IF I WANT IT.
  • 00:48:50.160 --> 00:48:53.160
  • I DON'T KNOW IF I WANT TO GIVE MY LIFE TO THAT.
  • 00:48:53.180 --> 00:48:56.160
  • I THOUGHT I'LL GO BE A LAWYER,
  • 00:48:56.180 --> 00:48:58.180
  • I'LL GO BE A BUSINESSMAN, I'LL GO MAKE SOME MONEY,
  • 00:48:58.200 --> 00:49:01.190
  • I'LL DO SOMETHING ELSE WITH MY LIFE.
  • 00:49:01.210 --> 00:49:03.200
  • BUT IF THESE AND GREATER THINGS SHALL YOU DO IN MY
  • 00:49:03.220 --> 00:49:06.220
  • NAME WASN'T REAL, I DIDN'T KNOW THAT
  • 00:49:06.240 --> 00:49:09.110
  • I WANTED TO BE A PART OF IT.
  • 00:49:09.130 --> 00:49:10.290
  • AND THAT WHOLE JOURNEY WITH MY DAD RADICALLY
  • 00:49:11.010 --> 00:49:12.210
  • CHANGED OUR ENTIRE FAMILY AND BECAME OPEN TO GOD IS
  • 00:49:12.230 --> 00:49:16.210
  • MOVING AND GOD IS DOING MIRACLES AND GOD IS
  • 00:49:16.230 --> 00:49:19.120
  • WORKING IN THE EARTH, THAT HE'S NOT A GOD
  • 00:49:19.140 --> 00:49:21.190
  • THAT'S A FAR OFF, THAT'S DISCONNECTED WITH HIS
  • 00:49:21.210 --> 00:49:24.090
  • PEOPLE BUT HE'S VERY MUCH IN THE EVERYDAY OF OUR
  • 00:49:24.110 --> 00:49:26.210
  • LIFE. SO IT RADICALLY, RADICALLY CHANGED MY
  • 00:49:26.230 --> 00:49:29.150
  • JOURNEY, MY FAMILY'S JOURNEY.
  • 00:49:29.170 --> 00:49:32.110
  • - SO WE'VE GOT FIVE OR--
  • 00:49:32.130 --> 00:49:34.000
  • - I LOVE YOUR ATTITUDE.
  • 00:49:34.020 --> 00:49:35.170
  • YOU--
  • 00:49:35.190 --> 00:49:37.020
  • - WE'VE GOT A FEW MINUTES HERE LEFT,
  • 00:49:37.040 --> 00:49:39.020
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SAID JUST A MINUTE AGO I
  • 00:49:39.040 --> 00:49:42.170
  • THINK WAS SUPER IMPORTANT IS SOMETHING TO THE
  • 00:49:42.190 --> 00:49:45.220
  • EFFECT OF IF THERE ISN'T MORE,
  • 00:49:45.240 --> 00:49:49.230
  • THEN I DON'T THINK I WANT IT.
  • 00:49:49.250 --> 00:49:52.220
  • THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE DOING THE
  • 00:49:52.240 --> 00:49:55.020
  • "THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE TO THIS".
  • 00:49:55.040 --> 00:49:57.000
  • TALK TO THOSE FOLKS AND JUST KIND OF WIND US UP
  • 00:49:57.020 --> 00:50:00.130
  • HERE AT THE END OF THIS BROADCAST
  • 00:50:00.150 --> 00:50:02.150
  • IF YOU WOULD THEN PRAY FOR OUR AUDIENCE,
  • 00:50:02.170 --> 00:50:04.060
  • THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.
  • 00:50:04.080 --> 00:50:05.150
  • - ABSOLUTELY. AS WE WERE TALKING TODAY,
  • 00:50:05.170 --> 00:50:07.030
  • I WAS THINKING ABOUT THOSE WHO HAVEN'T GOT THE
  • 00:50:07.050 --> 00:50:09.060
  • HEALING YET AND HAVEN'T SEEN IT COME THROUGH YET.
  • 00:50:09.080 --> 00:50:11.210
  • I THINK ABOUT THE STORY OF HANNAH IN THE
  • 00:50:11.230 --> 00:50:13.070
  • OLD TESTAMENT. SHE SO DESPERATELY WANTED A CHILD.
  • 00:50:13.090 --> 00:50:16.150
  • SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT SHE WEPT TO THE POINT THAT
  • 00:50:16.170 --> 00:50:18.280
  • HER MOUTH WAS MOVING BUT HER VOCAL CORDS WERE NOT
  • 00:50:19.000 --> 00:50:21.130
  • EVEN ENGAGING, THAT SHE WAS SO DESPERATE FOR THE
  • 00:50:21.150 --> 00:50:24.100
  • LORD. SHE HAD, I CALL IT A DEFICIT.
  • 00:50:24.120 --> 00:50:26.160
  • SHE HAD A DEFICIT BETWEEN WHERE SHE WAS AND WHAT
  • 00:50:26.180 --> 00:50:28.150
  • SHE WAS BELIEVING FOR.
  • 00:50:28.170 --> 00:50:30.160
  • AND OFTEN YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE DEFICIT,
  • 00:50:30.180 --> 00:50:32.200
  • YOU CAN WANT TO GIVE UP, QUIT,
  • 00:50:32.220 --> 00:50:34.030
  • YOU CAN THINK GOD ISN'T WORKING IN THAT WAY,
  • 00:50:34.050 --> 00:50:36.230
  • OR GOD ISN'T DOING THAT TO MY LIFE,
  • 00:50:36.250 --> 00:50:38.130
  • OR MAYBE GOD HAS FAVORITES. AND WE JUST
  • 00:50:38.150 --> 00:50:40.210
  • LEARNED GOD'S NOT A RESPECTER OF PERSON.
  • 00:50:40.230 --> 00:50:43.030
  • I WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE SOMEBODY TODAY IF YOU'RE
  • 00:50:43.050 --> 00:50:44.220
  • IN THE DEFICIT OF YOUR LIFE BETWEEN WHERE YOU
  • 00:50:44.240 --> 00:50:47.070
  • ARE AND WHERE GOD WANTS YOU TO BE OR WHAT
  • 00:50:47.090 --> 00:50:49.100
  • YOU'RE BELIEVING FOR, PRAYING FOR,
  • 00:50:49.120 --> 00:50:51.000
  • THAT YOU JUST STAY IN FAITH,
  • 00:50:51.020 --> 00:50:52.250
  • THAT YOU KEEP BELIEVING, THAT YOU KEEP TRUSTING
  • 00:50:52.270 --> 00:50:55.140
  • BECAUSE IT'S IN THE DEFICIT THAT YOUR FAITH
  • 00:50:55.160 --> 00:50:57.160
  • MUSCLE REALLY GROWS.
  • 00:50:57.180 --> 00:50:59.180
  • I FOUND THAT MY FAITH DOESN'T GROW IN COMFORT.
  • 00:50:59.200 --> 00:51:02.160
  • IT DOESN'T GROW AND STRENGTHEN ON THE MOUNTAIN
  • 00:51:02.180 --> 00:51:06.010
  • TOP. IT'S OFTEN IN THE VALLEY WHERE GOD REALLY
  • 00:51:06.030 --> 00:51:08.160
  • BEGINS TO DEVELOP MY MUSCLE OF FAITH.
  • 00:51:08.180 --> 00:51:10.260
  • AND HERE'S WHAT I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU WITH IS GOD
  • 00:51:10.280 --> 00:51:13.060
  • WOULDN'T DEVELOP YOUR MUSCLE OF FAITH TO
  • 00:51:13.080 --> 00:51:15.150
  • ANOTHER LEVEL IF HE WASN'T TAKING YOU TO ANOTHER
  • 00:51:15.170 --> 00:51:18.060
  • LEVEL. THE GREATER THE DEFICIT IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:51:18.080 --> 00:51:21.070
  • I WOULD SAY THE GREATER THE DESTINY.
  • 00:51:21.090 --> 00:51:23.100
  • SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE DEFICIT AND THINK THERE'S
  • 00:51:23.120 --> 00:51:25.110
  • NO WAY, I CAN'T SEE THE LIGHT AT END OF THE
  • 00:51:25.130 --> 00:51:27.100
  • TUNNEL, I CAN'T SEE WHERE GOD IS IN THE
  • 00:51:27.120 --> 00:51:29.240
  • MIDDLE OF THIS, I JUST WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU
  • 00:51:29.260 --> 00:51:31.260
  • THAT GOD IS CLOSE TO THE BROKENHEARTED,
  • 00:51:31.280 --> 00:51:34.090
  • THAT THOUGH WEEPING MAY LAST THROUGH THE NIGHT,
  • 00:51:34.110 --> 00:51:36.180
  • JOY DOES COME IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:51:36.200 --> 00:51:39.240
  • HANNAH FOUND THAT OUT TO BE TRUE.
