  • - BILL JOHNSON: THE CHALLENGE
  • 00:00:17.270 --> 00:00:18.180
  • OF OUR FAITH IS OUR
  • 00:00:18.180 --> 00:00:19.040
  • WILLINGNESS TO HEAR
  • 00:00:19.040 --> 00:00:19.270
  • OTHER VOICES.
  • 00:00:19.270 --> 00:00:21.130
  • AND INSTEAD OF EMPHASIZING
  • 00:00:21.130 --> 00:00:22.160
  • OUR INABILITY OR OUR

  • WEAKNESS IN HEARING
  • 00:00:24.230 --> 00:00:25.150
  • GOD'S VOICE,
  • 00:00:25.150 --> 00:00:26.240
  • IT WOULD BE WISER FOR US TO
  • 00:00:26.240 --> 00:00:27.270
  • EMPHASIZE HIS ABILITY
  • 00:00:27.270 --> 00:00:29.120
  • TO BE HEARD.
  • 00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:31.080
  • THE CHALLENGE WITH OUR FAITH IS
  • 00:00:43.210 --> 00:00:44.210
  • NOT OUR INABILITY TO
  • 00:00:45.010 --> 00:00:48.010
  • THE CHALLENGE OF OUR FAITH IS

  • OUR WILLINGNESS TO
  • 00:00:53.050 --> 00:00:54.090
  • HEAR OTHER VOICES.
  • 00:00:54.090 --> 00:00:55.290
  • THERE ARE SO MANY OPINIONS,
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:02.030
  • IDEAS, IDEOLOGIES THAT ARE ALL
  • 00:01:02.030 --> 00:01:04.270
  • COMPETING FOR OUR ATTENTION,
  • 00:01:04.270 --> 00:01:07.070
  • AND, ULTIMATELY, OUR AFFECTION.
  • 00:01:07.070 --> 00:01:09.230
  • WHENEVER THE LORD DOES A
  • 00:01:09.230 --> 00:01:12.150
  • MIRACLE, A HEALING, SOMETHING
  • 00:01:12.150 --> 00:01:14.050
  • EXTRAORDINARY IN OUR LIVES,
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:16.150
  • HE'S ALWAYS TRYING TO ANCHOR
  • 00:01:16.150 --> 00:01:19.110
  • OUR AFFECTIONS INTO A WORLD
  • 00:01:19.110 --> 00:01:21.080
  • WHEN YOU SEE CAUSE AND EFFECT,
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:26.260
  • YOU SEE SOMEONE'S EAR THAT IS
  • 00:01:26.260 --> 00:01:28.040
  • DEAF, SOMEBODY PRAYS, SOMETHING
  • 00:01:28.040 --> 00:01:29.130
  • UNSEEN COMES AND OPENS THE EAR;
  • 00:01:29.130 --> 00:01:31.050
  • THEY CAN NOW HEAR.
  • 00:01:32.040 --> 00:01:35.040
  • WHAT'S HAPPENING?
  • 00:01:35.040 --> 00:01:35.290
  • THE LORD IS AWAKENING OUR
  • 00:01:35.290 --> 00:01:37.090
  • AFFECTION FOR A WORLD WE
  • 00:01:37.090 --> 00:01:38.000
  • CANNOT SEE.
  • 00:01:38.000 --> 00:01:38.260
  • HE'S TEACHING US, HE'S TRAINING
  • 00:01:38.260 --> 00:01:41.070
  • US ON THE SUPERIORITY
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:42.130
  • PAUL ANCHORED INTO THAT WHEN HE
  • 00:01:46.070 --> 00:01:47.060
  • SAID: WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE IS
  • 00:01:47.060 --> 00:01:48.020
  • ETERNAL; WHAT YOU CAN
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:49.080
  • SEE IS TEMPORAL.
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:51.120
  • SO, THERE'S A CONSTANT-- IT
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:53.070
  • DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A CONFLICT,
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:54.260
  • BUT WE LIVE, OFTENTIMES, IN A
  • 00:01:54.260 --> 00:01:56.090
  • CONFLICT BETWEEN THOSE TWO
  • 00:01:56.090 --> 00:01:57.230
  • REALITIES, WHEN THEY'RE
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:59.060
  • SUPPOSED TO BE JOINED TOGETHER
  • 00:01:59.060 --> 00:02:00.030
  • IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THE
  • 00:02:03.150 --> 00:02:04.050
  • NATURAL IS AN EVIL COMMODITY
  • 00:02:04.050 --> 00:02:05.140
  • AND THE SUPERNATURAL IS GREAT.
  • 00:02:05.140 --> 00:02:06.270
  • IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE
  • 00:02:06.270 --> 00:02:08.220
  • FUNCTIONING TOGETHER.
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:11.170
  • IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE -- IF I CAN
  • 00:02:11.170 --> 00:02:12.150
  • USE ISRAEL'S ANALOGY, AS THEY
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:14.060
  • WENT INTO THE PROMISED LAND --
  • 00:02:14.060 --> 00:02:16.020
  • IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ISRAEL
  • 00:02:16.020 --> 00:02:17.180
  • WORKS NATURALLY TO PLANT
  • 00:02:17.180 --> 00:02:19.130
  • CROPS, GOD BREATHES ON THEM,
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:21.200
  • AND THEY MULTIPLY IN THE SIZE
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:23.050
  • OF THE HARVEST.
  • 00:02:23.050 --> 00:02:26.000
  • THE NATURAL IS SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:26.250
  • COOPERATE WITH THE
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:27.170
  • SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:29.010
  • AND YOU AND I ARE THE AGENTS
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:29.240
  • FAITH COMES FROM HEARING
  • 00:02:33.070 --> 00:02:33.250
  • GOD'S VOICE.
  • 00:02:33.250 --> 00:02:36.100
  • EVERYBODY IN THE ROOM CAN HEAR
  • 00:02:36.100 --> 00:02:37.270
  • GOD'S VOICE.
  • 00:02:37.270 --> 00:02:39.110
  • YOU WOULDN'T BE SAVED OTHERWISE.
  • 00:02:39.110 --> 00:02:40.140
  • THAT CONVICTION THAT DRAWS US
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:43.160
  • TO HIM, WHERE WE CONFESS,
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:46.080
  • WE REPENT, WE TURN OUR
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:46.250
  • LIVES TO HIM --
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:47.090
  • IT'S ONLY BECAUSE IT'S A
  • 00:02:47.090 --> 00:02:48.090
  • WE, UNFORTUNATELY, AS AN
  • 00:02:52.070 --> 00:02:52.270
  • ACHIEVEMENT, SOMETIMES CENTERED
  • 00:02:52.270 --> 00:02:55.020
  • PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY IN THE
  • 00:02:55.090 --> 00:02:58.090
  • WESTERN-WORLD, WE EMPHASIZE
  • 00:02:58.090 --> 00:02:59.140
  • OUR ABILITY, OR, IN THIS CASE,
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:01.040
  • INABILITY.
  • 00:03:01.040 --> 00:03:02.150
  • AND INSTEAD OF EMPHASIZING OUR
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:04.220
  • INABILITY OR OUR WEAKNESS IN
  • 00:03:04.230 --> 00:03:07.230
  • HEARING GOD'S VOICE, IT WOULD
  • 00:03:07.230 --> 00:03:09.120
  • BE WISER FOR US TO EMPHASIZE
  • 00:03:09.120 --> 00:03:11.000
  • HIS ABILITY TO BE HEARD.
  • 00:03:14.250 --> 00:03:17.250
  • IF YOU'RE TALKING TO
  • 00:03:17.250 --> 00:03:18.270
  • SOMEBODY WHO HAS A DIFFICULT
  • 00:03:18.270 --> 00:03:19.220
  • TIME HEARING YOU, YOU RAISE
  • 00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:20.190
  • YOUR VOICE.
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:21.160
  • PERHAPS, YOU WAIT TILL THEY'RE
  • 00:03:21.160 --> 00:03:22.210
  • LOOKING AT YOU.
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:23.140
  • YOU DO SOMETHING TO HELP MAKE
  • 00:03:23.140 --> 00:03:25.260
  • SURE THAT YOU ARE HEARD.
  • 00:03:25.260 --> 00:03:27.270
  • YOU TAKE ON RESPONSIBILITY TO
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:28.180
  • BE HEARD.
  • 00:03:28.180 --> 00:03:31.070
  • IF YOU AND I KNOW HOW TO DO
  • 00:03:31.070 --> 00:03:32.130
  • THAT AS PEOPLE IN THIS HUMAN
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:34.090
  • RACE, THEN, CERTAINLY, GOD
  • 00:03:34.090 --> 00:03:35.210
  • KNOWS HOW TO DO THAT AS OUR
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:36.230
  • HEAVENLY FATHER.
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:40.240
  • HE MAKES CERTAIN THAT HE
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:41.260
  • CAN BE HEARD.
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:44.090
  • SO, THE ISSUE IS NOT ABILITY AS
  • 00:03:44.090 --> 00:03:46.060
  • MUCH AS IT IS WILLINGNESS.
  • 00:03:46.140 --> 00:03:49.140
  • IN SOME WAYS, THE GREATEST ENEMY
  • 00:03:49.140 --> 00:03:52.060
  • OF OUR HEART IS BUSINESS.
  • 00:03:55.070 --> 00:03:58.070
  • AND I DON'T MEAN BUSINESS BEING
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:04:00.170
  • FULL SCHEDULE.
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:01.140
  • I MEAN THE BUSINESS OF HEART.
  • 00:04:01.140 --> 00:04:03.020
  • JESUS HAD PROBABLY AS FULL A
  • 00:04:03.020 --> 00:04:06.010
  • SCHEDULE AS ANYBODY'S EVER HAD.
  • 00:04:06.010 --> 00:04:08.060
  • HE HAD PEOPLE PRESSING ABOUT
  • 00:04:08.060 --> 00:04:09.260
  • HIM CONSTANTLY, TRYING TO GET
  • 00:04:09.260 --> 00:04:10.250
  • CLOSE, TRYING TO DRAW FROM HIM,
  • 00:04:10.250 --> 00:04:12.220
  • QUESTIONS FOLLOWING HIM
  • 00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:14.180
  • ANYWHERE HE'D GO.
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:15.270
  • THEY'D FOLLOW HIM OUT INTO THE
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:16.180
  • WILDERNESS WHERE THERE WAS NO
  • 00:04:16.180 --> 00:04:17.180
  • FOOD AND JUST STAY THERE
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:18.230
  • WITHOUT FOOD,
  • 00:04:18.230 --> 00:04:19.140
  • AND JUST LOSE CONCERN FOR
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:20.030
  • THEIR OWN NEEDS TO EAT
  • 00:04:20.030 --> 00:04:20.200
  • AND TO DRINK.
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:23.110
  • THEY'D JUST FORGET ABOUT IT.
  • 00:04:23.110 --> 00:04:24.070
  • THEY'RE WITH HIM.
  • 00:04:24.070 --> 00:04:25.110
  • SO, IF THERE'S ANYBODY WHO KNEW
  • 00:04:25.110 --> 00:04:26.170
  • WHAT IT WAS TO HAVE DEMANDS PUT
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:27.240
  • ON HIM, IT WAS JESUS.
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:29.130
  • BUT HE MAINTAINED THAT SENSE OF
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:30.260
  • PERSONAL PEACE, IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:34.020
  • HE MAINTAINED THAT PEACE, THAT
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:36.000
  • PEACE OF HEART, THAT ENABLED
  • 00:04:36.000 --> 00:04:38.040
  • HIM TO RECOGNIZE THE STILL,
  • 00:04:38.040 --> 00:04:39.230
  • SMALL VOICE.
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:44.050
  • THE LORD IS OBVIOUSLY ABLE TO
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:45.030
  • SPEAK DRAMATICALLY THROUGH
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:46.010
  • CIRCUMSTANCES.
  • 00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:48.010
  • I'VE SEEN IT-- CIRCUMSTANCES,
  • 00:04:48.010 --> 00:04:49.090
  • UNUSUAL COINCIDENCES.
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:50.280
  • THERE'S SO MANY WAYS THAT HE
  • 00:04:50.280 --> 00:04:51.230
  • TALKS.
  • 00:04:51.290 --> 00:04:54.290
  • AND, SOMETIMES, HE USES WORDS.
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:55.200
  • BUT HE SPEAKS.
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:59.150
  • AND, OFTENTIMES, IT'S THAT
  • 00:04:59.150 --> 00:05:00.200
  • STILL, SMALL VOICE.
  • 00:05:00.200 --> 00:05:03.080
  • AND IT DOESN'T MEAN, IF IT'S
  • 00:05:03.080 --> 00:05:04.130
  • LOUD AROUND YOU, YOU CAN'T HEAR
  • 00:05:04.130 --> 00:05:05.270
  • THE STILL, SMALL VOICE; IT JUST
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:07.060
  • CAN'T BE LOUD INSIDE OF YOU.
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:08.090
  • MAINTAINING, PROTECTING
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:09.290
  • PEACE...
  • 00:05:09.290 --> 00:05:11.080
  • ONE OF MY-- PERHAPS MY GREATEST
  • 00:05:11.100 --> 00:05:14.100
  • LIFE VERSE, WAS GIVEN TO ME BY
  • 00:05:14.130 --> 00:05:17.130
  • AND IT WAS OUT OF PROVERBS 4,
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:23.280
  • WHERE HE SAYS: WATCH OVER YOUR
  • 00:05:23.280 --> 00:05:26.040
  • HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:27.020
  • BECAUSE FROM IT FLOW THE ISSUES
  • 00:05:27.020 --> 00:05:28.210
  • OF LIFE.
  • 00:05:28.210 --> 00:05:30.150
  • WATCH OVER YOUR HEART.
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:31.190
  • WE USE THAT AS A MODEL -- BENI
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:34.270
  • AND I DID -- IN RAISING OUR
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:36.260
  • CHILDREN.
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:38.050
  • BECAUSE WE WOULD ACTUALLY BRING
  • 00:05:38.050 --> 00:05:39.060
  • CORRECTION IN RESPONSE TO
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:40.210
  • ATTITUDE INSTEAD OF JUST
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:41.090
  • BECAUSE IF YOU CAN CATCH SOME
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:45.180
  • THINGS IN ATTITUDE FORM, YOU
  • 00:05:45.180 --> 00:05:47.050
  • CAN ACTUALLY PREVENT THE
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:48.010
  • WRONG BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:49.200
  • AND SO, THE LORD'S INVITING
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:52.130
  • US INTO THAT KIND OF...
  • 00:05:52.130 --> 00:05:53.130
  • SELF-EXAMINATION IN A
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:56.090
  • HEALTHY WAY.
  • 00:05:56.090 --> 00:05:57.110
  • "WATCH OVER YOUR HEART
  • 00:05:57.110 --> 00:05:58.170
  • WITH ALL DILIGENCE.
  • 00:05:58.170 --> 00:05:59.030
  • FOR FROM IT FLOW THE
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:05:59.290
  • ISSUES OF LIFE."
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:00.160
  • MAKING SURE THAT I MAINTAIN NOT
  • 00:06:00.160 --> 00:06:02.130
  • JUST RIGHT ATTITUDES, BUT I
  • 00:06:02.130 --> 00:06:04.140
  • MAINTAIN, I PROTECT THAT PEACE.
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:05.290
  • I PROTECT THE PEACE THAT SEEMS
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:08.020
  • TO WELCOME AND RESPOND TO THE
  • 00:06:08.020 --> 00:06:11.000
  • SLIGHTEST NUDGE, THE SLIGHTEST,
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:12.130
  • UH, UH, MOVEMENT OF THE HOLY
  • 00:06:12.130 --> 00:06:14.270
  • SPIRIT, WHERE HE SPEAKS TO ME.
  • 00:06:14.270 --> 00:06:15.270
  • OUR LIFE DEPENDS ON HIS VOICE.
  • 00:06:15.270 --> 00:06:18.100
  • NOW, I WANT TO EMPHASIZE FOR
  • 00:06:19.070 --> 00:06:22.070
  • THOSE WHO MAY NOT KNOW US WELL
  • 00:06:22.090 --> 00:06:25.090
  • ENOUGH -- HIS VOICE WILL NEVER
  • 00:06:25.090 --> 00:06:27.130
  • CONTRADICT HIS WORD.
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:29.190
  • BUT HIS VOICE IS WHAT MAKES
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:31.260
  • THIS COME ALIVE.
  • 00:06:31.260 --> 00:06:33.200
  • WE NEED THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:34.110
  • THAT'S WHERE HE ACTIVATES
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:35.220
  • WHAT'S ON THE PAGE INTO
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:37.010

  • 00:06:37.010 --> 00:06:38.220
  • [PATTING CHEST]
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:39.110
  • WE NEED THAT ACTIVATION
  • 00:06:39.110 --> 00:06:41.160
  • MAN SHOULD NOT LIVE BY BREAD
  • 00:06:45.290 --> 00:06:46.190
  • ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:47.080
  • THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE
  • 00:06:47.080 --> 00:06:49.120
  • MOUTH OF GOD,
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:51.150
  • THE VOICE.
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:53.060
  • WE LIVE, LITERALLY, BY THE
  • 00:06:53.060 --> 00:06:54.070
  • VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:56.160
  • EVERYTHING IS UPHELD BY HIS
  • 00:06:56.160 --> 00:06:58.040
  • VOICE, BY HIS WORD.
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:06:59.280
  • OUR NEED TO HEAR FROM HIM IS AN
  • 00:07:00.130 --> 00:07:03.130
  • ONGOING CONTINUAL THING.
  • 00:07:03.130 --> 00:07:05.110
  • AND PROTECTING THAT PEACE IS
  • 00:07:05.110 --> 00:07:07.210
  • WHAT ENSURES THAT WE WILL
  • 00:07:07.210 --> 00:07:09.210
  • ALWAYS BE A HEARER OF
  • 00:07:09.210 --> 00:07:11.260
  • HIS VOICE.
  • 00:07:11.260 --> 00:07:14.240
  • LASTLY, BEFORE WE GET INTO LUKE
  • 00:07:14.240 --> 00:07:15.220
  • 8, HERE WE KNOW THAT FAITH
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:19.200
  • COMES FROM...HEARING.
  • 00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:22.080
  • AND HEARING BY...THE WORD
  • 00:07:22.080 --> 00:07:24.190
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:07:24.190 --> 00:07:27.000
  • FAITH COMES FROM HEARING,
  • 00:07:27.000 --> 00:07:28.230
  • HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:31.210
  • ANYONE WHO DOESN'T HAVE
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:33.050
  • DEVOTION TO THIS WILL SOMETIMES
  • 00:07:33.290 --> 00:07:36.290
  • BE MISLED BY WHAT THEY HEAR.
  • 00:07:36.290 --> 00:07:38.220
  • BECAUSE THERE ARE OTHER VOICES.
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:41.230
  • AND AS I SAID TO START WITH
  • 00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:46.170
  • TODAY, OUR ISSUE IN BUILDING
  • 00:07:47.140 --> 00:07:50.140
  • FAITH, IN BEING PEOPLE OF FAITH
  • 00:07:50.140 --> 00:07:51.210
  • IS NOT SO MUCH OUR INABILITY TO
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:54.020
  • HEAR FROM GOD; IT'S OUR
  • 00:07:54.020 --> 00:07:56.010
  • WILLINGNESS TO HEAR
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:07:57.230
  • OTHER VOICES.
  • 00:07:57.270 --> 00:08:00.290
  • AND SO, THAT'S WHAT I WANNA
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:01.290
  • TALK TO YOU ABOUT.
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:04.040
  • WE'RE GONNA LOOK AT A PARABLE.
  • 00:08:04.040 --> 00:08:05.150
  • AND I'M-- UH, I DON'T THINK
  • 00:08:05.150 --> 00:08:07.000
  • I'VE EVER TAKEN JUST ONE VERSE
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:08.240
  • TO STUDY, OUT OF THIS PARABLE.
  • 00:08:08.240 --> 00:08:10.250
  • I ALWAYS READ THE WHOLE THING.
  • 00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:12.240
  • I LIKE STUDYING THE
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:13.180
  • WHOLE THING.
  • 00:08:13.180 --> 00:08:14.190
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO, TODAY.
  • 00:08:14.190 --> 00:08:15.080
  • IT'S RECORDED HERE.
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:16.100
  • I THINK A MORE COMPLETE VERSION
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:17.240
  • IS IN MATTHEW 13.
  • 00:08:17.240 --> 00:08:19.100
  • IT'S THE PARABLE OF THE SEED
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:21.110
  • AND THE SOWER.
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:22.050
  • IT IS THE CORNERSTONE PARABLE.
  • 00:08:22.050 --> 00:08:24.200
  • IT'S LIKE: IF YOU GET THIS ONE,
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:26.150
  • EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS
  • 00:08:26.150 --> 00:08:27.150
  • INTO PLACE.
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:28.150
  • AND, IN THIS STORY, THERE IS--
  • 00:08:28.150 --> 00:08:30.040
  • UH, JESUS USES AN ILLUSTRATION
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:32.090
  • OF SEED, A SOWER, AND SOIL.
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:36.280
  • THE SEED IS GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:40.060
  • NOW, JUST THINK WITH ME.
  • 00:08:40.060 --> 00:08:41.110
  • THE SEED IS WHAT GOD SAYS TO
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:43.060
  • YOU AND ME.
  • 00:08:43.060 --> 00:08:44.210
  • THAT SEED-- IF YOU TAKE A
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:46.130
  • EXCUSE ME -- WHEN YOU PLANT IT
  • 00:08:53.110 --> 00:08:54.180
  • INTO THE GROUND AND IT GROWS
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:55.200
  • AND EAR OF CORN, EVERY KERNEL
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:57.140
  • ON THAT EAR OF CORN HAS THE
  • 00:08:57.140 --> 00:08:59.120
  • EXACT SAME DNA AS THE KERNEL
  • 00:08:59.120 --> 00:09:02.100
  • THAT DIED IN THE GROUND.
  • 00:09:02.100 --> 00:09:04.210
  • SAME DNA.
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:07.030
  • SO, THE LORD DIED THAT YOU AND
  • 00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:09.220
  • I MIGHT HAVE LIFE.
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:11.030
  • AND WHENEVER HE SPEAKS TO US,
  • 00:09:11.030 --> 00:09:12.170
  • HE ACTUALLY GIVES TO US A SEED
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:15.190
  • THAT CARRIES HIS ENTIRE,
  • 00:09:15.190 --> 00:09:16.210
  • FULL DNA.
  • 00:09:16.210 --> 00:09:19.150
  • THE DNA OF GOD IS IN THE SEED
  • 00:09:19.150 --> 00:09:20.120
  • OF WHATEVER HE SAYS.
  • 00:09:22.010 --> 00:09:25.010
  • SO, WHEN HE SPEAKS TO US, HE'S
  • 00:09:25.010 --> 00:09:26.270
  • ACTUALLY DEPOSITING SOMETHING
  • 00:09:27.090 --> 00:09:30.090
  • THAT HAS THE CAPACITY TO BRING
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:32.000
  • ABSOLUTE, COMPLETE
  • 00:09:32.000 --> 00:09:33.140
  • JAMES PUT IT THIS WAY, HE SAID:
  • 00:09:36.160 --> 00:09:37.080
  • "...IN HUMILITY, RECEIVE THE
  • 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:38.140
  • WORD IMPLANTED..."
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:39.180
  • SO, HUMILITY'S THE CONDITION OF
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:40.290
  • THE SOIL.
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:41.220
  • "...IN HUMILITY, RECEIVE THE
  • 00:09:41.220 --> 00:09:42.240
  • WORD IMPLANTED..."
  • 00:09:42.240 --> 00:09:44.210
  • AND THEN, IT SAYS: "...WHICH IS
  • 00:09:44.210 --> 00:09:45.250
  • ABLE TO SAVE YOUR SOULS."
  • 00:09:45.250 --> 00:09:48.000
  • SO, THE ABILITY TO SAVE-- UH,
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:51.080
  • YOU'RE ALREADY BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:09:51.080 --> 00:09:53.160
  • THE PEOPLE HE WROTE THAT TO
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:55.090
  • WERE ALREADY SAVED.
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:56.020
  • SO, HE'S TALKING ABOUT THE
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:57.050
  • THE POWER FOR THAT
  • 00:09:59.170 --> 00:10:00.020
  • TRANSFORMATION IS IN THE SEED
  • 00:10:00.020 --> 00:10:00.230
  • THAT WAS RECEIVED.
  • 00:10:00.230 --> 00:10:02.110
  • AND, OFTENTIMES, BECAUSE WE
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:04.250
  • DON'T GET THE FULL THING THAT
  • 00:10:04.250 --> 00:10:06.260
  • WE PRAYED FOR, WE ACTUALLY
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:08.100
  • ABORT THE POWER OF THE SEED
  • 00:10:08.100 --> 00:10:10.180
  • BECAUSE WE WERE DISAPPOINTED IN
  • 00:10:10.180 --> 00:10:12.140
  • NOT GETTING THE FULL MEASURE OF
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:14.020
  • PROMISE THAT WE HAD PRAYED FOR.
  • 00:10:14.020 --> 00:10:16.160
  • BECAUSE WE ACTUALLY DIDN'T
  • 00:10:16.160 --> 00:10:18.230
  • REALIZE THAT WHAT GOD SPOKE TO
  • 00:10:18.230 --> 00:10:21.220
  • US WAS A SEED THAT CARRIED THE
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:23.210
  • CAPACITY FOR THE FULL ANSWER,
  • 00:10:24.130 --> 00:10:27.130
  • IF IT'S STEWARDED WELL.
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:30.180
  • SO, IN THE PARABLE OF THE SEED
  • 00:10:30.180 --> 00:10:31.130
  • AND THE SOWER, WE HAVE THE SEED,
  • 00:10:31.130 --> 00:10:32.170
  • WHICH IS GOD'S WORD THAT
  • 00:10:32.170 --> 00:10:33.110
  • CARRIES HIS DNA.
  • 00:10:33.110 --> 00:10:35.090
  • THE SOIL IS THE CONDITION OF
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:37.140
  • THE HEART.
  • 00:10:37.140 --> 00:10:38.230
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ONE WHO
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:39.290
  • TAKES THE SEED, PLANTS IT INTO
  • 00:10:39.290 --> 00:10:41.220
  • OUR HEART SO THAT THE CONDITION
  • 00:10:41.220 --> 00:10:43.180
  • OF THE HEART IS THE SOIL.
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:44.220
  • NOW, THE SEED HAS ABSOLUTE
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:47.160
  • CAPACITY TO REPRODUCE THE
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:49.220
  • LIKENESS, THE POWER, THE NATURE
  • 00:10:49.220 --> 00:10:52.070
  • OF GOD ANYWHERE IT'S PLANTED.
  • 00:10:52.070 --> 00:10:54.100
  • WOULD YOU AGREE WITH ME ON
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:55.210
  • THAT?
  • 00:10:55.210 --> 00:10:56.200
  • THE SEED HAS THE POWER.
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:57.110
  • WHAT IS THE LIMITING FACTOR IS
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:58.250
  • THE CONDITION OF THE SOIL.
  • 00:11:02.160 --> 00:11:05.160
  • SO, WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU, HE
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:06.070
  • SPEAKS TO ME, HE'S DEPOSITING
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:08.010
  • SOMETHING THAT HAS ABSOLUTE
  • 00:11:08.010 --> 00:11:09.120

  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:01.280
  • THIS PARABLE, AND, I THINK I'VE
  • 00:13:01.280 --> 00:13:03.010
  • ALREADY STATED IT -- I'M ONLY
  • 00:13:03.010 --> 00:13:03.260
  • GONNA READ ONE VERSE, ALTHOUGH
  • 00:13:03.260 --> 00:13:04.170
  • THE WHOLE PARABLE IS CERTAINLY
  • 00:13:04.170 --> 00:13:05.220
  • WORTH STUDYING.
  • 00:13:06.030 --> 00:13:09.030
  • ONE VERSE -- VERSE 14.
  • 00:13:09.030 --> 00:13:09.290
  • "NOW, THE ONES THAT FELL AMONG
  • 00:13:09.290 --> 00:13:11.170
  • THORNS ARE THOSE WHO, WHEN THEY
  • 00:13:11.170 --> 00:13:13.160
  • HAVE HEARD, GO OUT AND ARE
  • 00:13:13.160 --> 00:13:15.280
  • CHOKED WITH CARES, RICHES, AND
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:19.120
  • PLEASURES OF LIFE, AND BRING NO
  • 00:13:19.120 --> 00:13:22.090
  • FRUIT TO MATURITY."
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:25.090
  • OKAY, LOOK AT IT, AGAIN.
  • 00:13:25.090 --> 00:13:26.270
  • "...THE ONES..." -- THE ONES
  • 00:13:26.270 --> 00:13:28.120
  • BEING SEEDS.
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:30.060
  • OKAY, SO, LET'S CHANGE THE WORD
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:30.290
  • TO "SEED."
  • 00:13:30.290 --> 00:13:31.190

  • FRUIT TO MATURITY."
  • 00:13:41.020 --> 00:13:42.170
  • THIS IS NOT DESCRIBING A
  • 00:13:44.120 --> 00:13:47.120
  • HARD HEART.
  • 00:13:49.080 --> 00:13:52.080
  • THAT'S DEALT WITH EARLIER IN
  • 00:13:52.080 --> 00:13:52.280
  • THE PARABLE.
  • 00:13:52.280 --> 00:13:53.240
  • THIS IS TALKING ABOUT SOIL THAT
  • 00:13:57.110 --> 00:13:58.030
  • RECEIVES MANY SEEDS.
  • 00:13:58.110 --> 00:14:01.130
  • LET'S JUST SAY IT'S CORN.
  • 00:14:02.060 --> 00:14:05.060
  • YOU PUT IN CORN, BUT NEXT TO
  • 00:14:05.060 --> 00:14:06.010
  • IT IS THORNS.
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:08.080
  • WHAT IS THAT?
  • 00:14:08.080 --> 00:14:08.230
  • THAT'S THE PRODUCT OF
  • 00:14:08.230 --> 00:14:09.100
  • ANOTHER SEED.
  • 00:14:13.160 --> 00:14:16.160
  • SO, HERE I'VE RECEIVED WHAT GOD
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:17.080
  • IS SAYING, PLANTED INTO MY
  • 00:14:17.080 --> 00:14:18.040
  • HEART, BUT I'VE ALSO
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:19.050
  • RECEIVED...THIS OTHER IDEA AND
  • 00:14:19.050 --> 00:14:22.030
  • THIS BACKUP IDEA, IN CASE THIS
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:24.110
  • DOESN'T WORK.
  • 00:14:24.110 --> 00:14:26.080
  • AND, THIS OTHER PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:14:26.080 --> 00:14:28.170
  • 'CAUSE, YOU KNOW, I'VE SEEN
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:30.000
  • OTHER WHO'VE HAD THAT PROMISE
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:31.260
  • AND GOD DIDN'T FULFILL IT IN
  • 00:14:31.260 --> 00:14:32.160
  • SO, WHAT HAPPENS IS IT'S NOT--
  • 00:14:37.030 --> 00:14:38.260
  • WE DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH
  • 00:14:38.260 --> 00:14:39.160
  • HEARING GOD'S VOICE; WE HAVE A
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:40.110
  • PROBLEM BY GIVING OURSELVES TO
  • 00:14:42.120 --> 00:14:45.120
  • OTHER THINGS THAT ARE NOT THE
  • 00:14:45.120 --> 00:14:46.070
  • RESULT OF GOD'S WORD --
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:47.100
  • GOD'S VOICE TO US.
  • 00:14:47.100 --> 00:14:49.190
  • AND SO, WHAT HAPPENS IS WE END
  • 00:14:49.190 --> 00:14:50.250
  • UP ENTERTAINING IDEAS, THOUGHTS
  • 00:14:50.250 --> 00:14:52.070
  • THAT BECOME PLANTED IN US WHO
  • 00:14:52.070 --> 00:14:54.200
  • ROB FROM THE SOIL WHAT THE WORD
  • 00:14:55.040 --> 00:14:58.040
  • OF GOD NEEDS TO DRAW FROM, IF
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:15:01.110
  • YOU WILL -- THE NUTRIENTS THAT
  • 00:15:01.110 --> 00:15:02.070
  • SEEDS DRAW FROM.
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:03.030
  • IT'S ROBBING FROM THAT.
  • 00:15:03.030 --> 00:15:04.290
  • AND THEN, IT GROWS UP AND IT
  • 00:15:04.290 --> 00:15:06.040
  • COMPETES FOR SUNLIGHT AND IT
  • 00:15:06.040 --> 00:15:08.090
  • CHOKES THE SEED OF WHAT GOD HAS
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:10.020
  • SAID.
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:11.160
  • THE POTENTIAL WAS THERE TO
  • 00:15:13.060 --> 00:15:16.060
  • PRODUCE THE LIKENESS, THE
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:19.110
  • NATURE OF GOD, THE ATMOSPHERE
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:21.070
  • OF HEAVEN ITSELF, THROUGH THE
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:22.200
  • DEVELOPMENT OF THAT SEED, THAT
  • 00:15:22.200 --> 00:15:24.070
  • BUT, AS SOON AS THAT BEGAN TO
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:29.190
  • ENTERTAIN-- IF YOU CAN PICTURE
  • 00:15:29.190 --> 00:15:30.100
  • PETER ON THE WATER, WALKING
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:31.260
  • TOWARDS JESUS, THEN, WHAT DID
  • 00:15:31.260 --> 00:15:32.260
  • HE DO?
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:34.170
  • HE BEGAN TO CONCERN HIMSELF
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:35.280
  • WITH THE WAVES, WHICH, ALL OF
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:37.050
  • US HAVE DONE.
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:38.160
  • IN FACT, MOST OF US NEVER GOT
  • 00:15:38.160 --> 00:15:39.260
  • OUT OF THE BOAT.
  • 00:15:39.260 --> 00:15:40.270
  • BUT HE'S WALKING AND WHAT DOES
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:43.010
  • HE DO?
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:44.040
  • HE BEGINS TO CONSIDER OTHER
  • 00:15:44.040 --> 00:15:46.090
  • ISSUES, OTHER PROBLEMS.
  • 00:15:46.090 --> 00:15:47.100
  • WHAT ARE THOSE?
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:48.100
  • THOSE ARE RAPID-GROWING SEEDS
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:50.230
  • THAT CREATE THORNS THAT CHOKE
  • 00:15:53.080 --> 00:15:56.080
  • THE PROMISE OF THE WORD THAT
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:57.190
  • JESUS LOOKED AT PETER AND SAID,
  • 00:15:59.240 --> 00:16:00.180
  • "COME."
  • 00:16:00.180 --> 00:16:01.170
  • THAT WAS THE WORD.
  • 00:16:01.170 --> 00:16:03.190
  • SAW THE WAVES.
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:04.160
  • THAT WAS ANOTHER WORD.
  • 00:16:04.160 --> 00:16:06.270
  • IS THE PICTURE CLEAR?
  • 00:16:06.270 --> 00:16:08.180
  • - AUDIENCE: YES.
  • 00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:10.040
  • - BILL: ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:16:10.040 --> 00:16:12.110
  • SO, HERE THIS SAYS, UH, THAT
  • 00:16:12.110 --> 00:16:14.000
  • THE THORNS THAT, UM-- THEY ARE
  • 00:16:14.090 --> 00:16:17.090
  • "ARE CHOKED WITH CARES, RICHES,
  • 00:16:17.090 --> 00:16:19.140
  • AND PLEASURES...AND BRING NO
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:20.230
  • FRUIT TO MATURITY."
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:21.130
  • TAKE THOSE THREE THINGS: CARES,
  • 00:16:21.130 --> 00:16:22.100
  • THE WORD "CARES," HERE -- I
  • 00:16:25.100 --> 00:16:26.110
  • DIDN'T KNOW UNTIL, ACTUALLY,
  • 00:16:26.110 --> 00:16:27.110
  • TODAY -- THIS WORD "CARES"
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:28.120
  • MEANS DIVIDED MIND.
  • 00:16:28.120 --> 00:16:31.020
  • DIVIDED MIND.
  • 00:16:39.170 --> 00:16:42.170
  • IN THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT,
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:44.150
  • IN MATTHEW 5,
  • 00:16:44.150 --> 00:16:45.230
  • JESUS TALKED ABOUT--
  • 00:16:45.230 --> 00:16:47.060
  • HE SAID WHOEVER'S EYE
  • 00:16:47.060 --> 00:16:48.150
  • IS SINGLE -- I MEAN, HE WASN'T
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:49.280
  • TALKING ABOUT HAVING ONE EYE IN
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:51.160
  • THE MIDDLE OF YOUR FOREHEAD --
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:52.170
  • WHOEVER'S EYE IS SINGLE, THEIR
  • 00:16:52.280 --> 00:16:55.280
  • BODY WILL BE FULL OF LIGHT.
  • 00:16:55.280 --> 00:16:57.140
  • I HAVE THIS HUNCH THAT THERE'S
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:17:00.050
  • REVELATION IN THAT THOUGHT
  • 00:17:00.050 --> 00:17:01.180
  • ABOUT DIVINE HEALTH.
  • 00:17:01.180 --> 00:17:04.070
  • BUT, UH, LET'S JUST LEAVE THAT
  • 00:17:04.190 --> 00:17:07.190
  • ASIDE FOR A MOMENT AND
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:08.070
  • STICK TO THE CONCEPT.
  • 00:17:08.070 --> 00:17:09.060
  • SO, HE SAYS WHOEVER'S EYE IS
  • 00:17:09.060 --> 00:17:09.260
  • SINGLE, YOUR BODY WILL BE
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:10.150
  • FULL OF LIGHT.
  • 00:17:10.150 --> 00:17:10.280
  • LOOK AT IT THIS WAY: THE WORD
  • 00:17:10.280 --> 00:17:11.190
  • "SINGLE" HERE MEANS--
  • 00:17:11.190 --> 00:17:12.210
  • IT'S TWO WORDS.
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:14.090
  • IT'S THE NUMBER ONE AND IT'S
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.180
  • THE WORD "VOYAGE."
  • 00:17:15.180 --> 00:17:17.160
  • WHOEVER'S EYES OF THEIR HEART
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:20.130
  • ARE SET ON ONE VOYAGE --
  • 00:17:20.130 --> 00:17:22.070
  • "I AM ALIVE FOR ONE REASON" --
  • 00:17:22.070 --> 00:17:24.030
  • EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM WILL BE
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:26.270
  • ENLIGHTENED BY GOD'S OWN
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:28.030
  • PERSONAL PRESENCE.
  • 00:17:28.030 --> 00:17:29.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:33.180
  • THERE'LL BE NO SHADOWS,
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:35.090
  • ONE VOYAGE.
  • 00:17:39.170 --> 00:17:41.190
  • THE WORD "CARES" MEANS WHAT?
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:45.090
  • DIVIDED MIND.
  • 00:17:48.270 --> 00:17:51.270
  • HE GOES ON AND HE SAYS-- NOW,
  • 00:17:51.270 --> 00:17:54.090
  • THE FRUIT OF THESE THORNS, IF
  • 00:17:54.090 --> 00:17:55.200
  • YOU WILL--
  • 00:17:55.200 --> 00:17:56.210
  • WE'VE GOT THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:17:56.210 --> 00:17:57.150
  • PLANTED, WE'VE GOT THORNS, AND
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:17:58.260
  • THE FRUIT THAT THESE THORNS
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:00.240
  • CREATE THAT ACTUALLY TAKE THE
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:02.280
  • LIFE OF GOD'S WORD, HIS SEED.
  • 00:18:02.280 --> 00:18:04.240
  • THE FRUIT IS CARES -- DIVIDED
  • 00:18:04.240 --> 00:18:07.220
  • MIND; RICHES; AND PLEASURES
  • 00:18:07.220 --> 00:18:09.210
  • OF LIFE.
  • 00:18:11.180 --> 00:18:14.180
  • GOD IS THE KING OF PLEASURES
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:15.120
  • OF LIFE.
  • 00:18:15.120 --> 00:18:17.180
  • HE HIMSELF IS UNDISTRACTED
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:18.150
  • AND IS QUITE WEALTHY.
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:20.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:24.090
  • FAIRLY WEALTHY, YES.
  • 00:18:24.090 --> 00:18:25.170
  • THE PROBLEM ISN'T THE PLEASURE.
  • 00:18:28.110 --> 00:18:31.110
  • THE PROBLEM ISN'T THE RICHES OR
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:34.120
  • THE PROVISION, THE ABUNDANCE OF
  • 00:18:34.120 --> 00:18:35.220
  • GOD'S BLESSING.
  • 00:18:35.220 --> 00:18:37.180
  • THAT'S NEVER THE ISSUE.
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:39.290
  • THE ISSUE IS THE PLACE IT HAS
  • 00:18:39.290 --> 00:18:41.110
  • IN MY HEART.
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:42.220
  • AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS --
  • 00:18:42.220 --> 00:18:43.280
  • WHENEVER...WHENEVER MY
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:46.110
  • ATTENTION IS TURNED FROM
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:49.160
  • SEEKING FIRST THE KINGDOM TO
  • 00:18:49.160 --> 00:18:51.220
  • THE REWARD OF BREAKTHROUGH, AND
  • 00:18:51.220 --> 00:18:54.160
  • I TAKE THE BLESSING AND MAKE
  • 00:18:54.160 --> 00:18:56.020
  • THAT MY GOAL, I HAVE ACTUALLY
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:19:00.150
  • SOWN INTO THAT WHICH WILL NOW
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:02.200
  • CHOKE THE WORD FOR THE NEXT
  • 00:19:02.200 --> 00:19:04.110
  • SEASON AND I'VE CHOSEN WHERE
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:05.240
  • I'M GOING TO LEVEL OFF.
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:07.040
  • DID THAT MAKE SENSE?
  • 00:19:08.160 --> 00:19:11.160
  • THE SEED OF GOD'S WORD IS
  • 00:19:11.160 --> 00:19:14.060
  • PLANTED.
  • 00:19:14.060 --> 00:19:14.250
  • I FEED THESE OTHER THINGS -- BY
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:16.010
  • WHAT?
  • 00:19:16.010 --> 00:19:16.230
  • SUDDENLY, THE CARES OF LIFE.
  • 00:19:16.230 --> 00:19:17.170
  • I'M ANXIOUS.
  • 00:19:17.170 --> 00:19:18.220
  • WHY?
  • 00:19:18.220 --> 00:19:19.100
  • I'M ANXIOUS FOR THIS, I NEED TO
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:20.170
  • BUY THAT, I NEED TO PURCHASE
  • 00:19:20.170 --> 00:19:21.160
  • THIS, I NEED TO MAKE
  • 00:19:21.160 --> 00:19:22.100
  • THIS DECISION...
  • 00:19:22.100 --> 00:19:23.090
  • I LIVE WITH THIS TENSION, THIS
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:24.160
  • ANXIETY IN LIFE.
  • 00:19:24.160 --> 00:19:27.160
  • I'M-- GOT THE RICH.
  • 00:19:27.160 --> 00:19:28.120
  • I NEED MORE OF THIS
  • 00:19:28.120 --> 00:19:29.050
  • AND I'VE GOTTA
  • 00:19:29.050 --> 00:19:30.030
  • HAVE THAT.
