  • 00:00:02.130 --> 00:00:06.050
  • Creflo Dollar: When negative emotions, such as anxiety,
  • 00:00:06.060 --> 00:00:08.190
  • sorrow, rejection, and disappointment are triggered
  • 00:00:08.200 --> 00:00:12.020
  • they can turn into depression and move you further and further
  • 00:00:12.030 --> 00:00:15.190
  • from the will of God for your life.
  • 00:00:15.200 --> 00:00:17.260
  • That's why it's so important to learn how to deal
  • 00:00:17.270 --> 00:00:20.060
  • with negative emotions God's way.
  • 00:00:20.070 --> 00:00:22.280
  • We can find a peace that passes all understanding by meditating
  • 00:00:22.290 --> 00:00:26.240
  • on God's Word.
  • 00:00:26.250 --> 00:00:28.260
  • I'm talking about causes of depression and how to get
  • 00:00:28.270 --> 00:00:32.250
  • out.
  • 00:00:32.260 --> 00:00:34.030
  • Stay right there.
  • 00:00:34.040 --> 00:00:36.150
  • announcer: Creflo and Taffi Dollar our blanketing the world

  • Souls are being saved and lives are being transformed all

  • around the world.
  • 00:00:46.120 --> 00:00:48.040
  • female: Their ministry World Changers Church, you know, World
  • 00:00:48.050 --> 00:00:50.200
  • Changers International, it really does make a difference
  • 00:00:50.210 --> 00:00:53.130
  • in people's lives.
  • 00:00:53.140 --> 00:00:54.200
  • There's so many people, too many for them to count of how their
  • 00:00:54.210 --> 00:00:58.080
  • lives have been impacted.
  • 00:00:58.090 --> 00:00:59.210
  • announcer: And now it's your time.
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:01.260
  • Call, text, or go online to register today.
  • 00:01:01.270 --> 00:01:05.120
  • This is your world,
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:09.060
  • so let's vow to make it a better place.
  • 00:01:09.070 --> 00:01:14.130
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:14.140 --> 00:01:19.150
  • your love is here to stay.
  • 00:01:19.160 --> 00:01:23.170
  • It's time we live a new life.
  • 00:01:23.180 --> 00:01:27.170
  • Let his Son shine bright in you.
  • 00:01:27.180 --> 00:01:30.150
  • Saved by his grace.
  • 00:01:30.160 --> 00:01:33.090
  • Oh, we embrace your love today.
  • 00:01:33.100 --> 00:01:36.270
  • We are changed.
  • 00:01:36.280 --> 00:01:42.100
  • Creflo: In church, you very rarely hear sermons dealing
  • 00:01:42.110 --> 00:01:46.110
  • with your emotions and I don't quite know why that is because
  • 00:01:46.120 --> 00:01:52.030
  • that's one thing that I can be sure of today is that everybody
  • 00:01:52.040 --> 00:01:55.090
  • in here has emotions.
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:58.010
  • And God gave us emotions, but sometimes those emotions
  • 00:01:58.020 --> 00:02:03.010
  • have us.
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:04.210
  • And we've got to understand that we have authority over our
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:09.040
  • emotions.
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:10.090
  • When you hear somebody who says, "I can't help how I feel."
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:13.250
  • That is a deception, you can help how you feel.
  • 00:02:13.260 --> 00:02:17.010
  • God has given you authority over your feelings and you have
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:20.120
  • now-- you must accept the accountability for being
  • 00:02:20.130 --> 00:02:25.270
  • in charge over your emotions.
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:28.050
  • Say out loud, "I am-- I have authority over my emotions."
  • 00:02:28.060 --> 00:02:34.010
  • Now, once again, we're not teaching you to try to be
  • 00:02:34.020 --> 00:02:37.140
  • emotionless.
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:39.130
  • You know as Christians, sometimes we go too far
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:41.260
  • to the left or too far to the right.
  • 00:02:41.270 --> 00:02:45.110
  • We don't want you to increase phoniness.
  • 00:02:45.120 --> 00:02:47.280
  • We want you to know that you have emotions.
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:51.070
  • But the purpose of the series is to help you to understand how
  • 00:02:51.080 --> 00:02:55.140
  • to master those negative emotions.
  • 00:02:55.150 --> 00:02:58.190
  • Now, there are negative emotions that occur in our life and then
  • 00:02:58.200 --> 00:03:01.160
  • there are good emotions that occur in our life.
  • 00:03:01.170 --> 00:03:04.120
  • And emotion, we've defined it as feelings on the inside caused
  • 00:03:04.130 --> 00:03:10.130
  • by pain or pleasure to move you in a direction.
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:14.180
  • Feelings on the inside caused by pain or pleasure to move you
  • 00:03:14.190 --> 00:03:19.000
  • in a direction.
  • 00:03:19.010 --> 00:03:20.260
  • Now, you've gotta understand the devil understands this.
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:23.240
  • So he says, "If I'm going to be successful in moving you away
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:28.210
  • from the will of God for your life and keeping you away
  • 00:03:28.220 --> 00:03:30.240
  • from the will of God for your life somehow or another I've got
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:33.290
  • to trigger some negative emotions that you won't deal
  • 00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:38.100
  • with."
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:39.260
  • You know when you're in here praising God, and praying,
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:42.240
  • and confessing the Word, you're triggering godly emotions
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:46.250
  • and those godly emotions will move you closer and closer
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:49.210
  • to the blessings of God.
  • 00:03:49.220 --> 00:03:50.290
  • And we try to get you to learn how to live in that.
  • 00:03:51.000 --> 00:03:54.040
  • Because you get closer and closer to understanding
  • 00:03:54.050 --> 00:03:56.010
  • the will of God for your life.
  • 00:03:56.020 --> 00:03:58.120
  • But the same thing is true, the opposite is true that when
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:01.120
  • negative emotions are triggered, if you allow them they will move
  • 00:04:01.130 --> 00:04:06.170
  • you farther and farther away from the designed will
  • 00:04:06.180 --> 00:04:10.120
  • and purpose for your life.
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:12.110
  • And you could be like a step away from understanding more
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:15.100
  • about your life than ever before and it seems like every
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:18.000
  • time you get close to it there's some kind of circumstance that
  • 00:04:18.010 --> 00:04:21.250
  • triggers a negative emotion, and then because you don't know
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:24.270
  • how to deal with it or you were told you can't deal with it then
  • 00:04:24.280 --> 00:04:28.120
  • that negative feeling pushes you farther away from the place
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:32.110
  • where God wants you to be.
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:34.100
  • And so, now it becomes very important, especially in this
  • 00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:37.090
  • day and time, for you to understand how to deal
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:40.050
  • with your negative feelings.
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:42.140
  • How to deal with your negative emotions, what to do when things
  • 00:04:42.150 --> 00:04:47.100
  • are triggered.
  • 00:04:47.110 --> 00:04:48.150
  • And again, I'm not saying that you won't have negative
  • 00:04:48.160 --> 00:04:50.080
  • emotions, I'm not saying that anger won't come.
  • 00:04:50.090 --> 00:04:52.280
  • I'm not saying that all these weird things that have come
  • 00:04:52.290 --> 00:04:55.250
  • in your life.
  • 00:04:55.260 --> 00:04:56.250
  • I'm not saying that won't happen.
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:58.010
  • What I am saying is when it happens, as a Christian, do you
  • 00:04:58.020 --> 00:05:01.250
  • understand what to do to take authority over it and to master
  • 00:05:01.260 --> 00:05:05.280
  • it so you won't be mastered by it?
  • 00:05:05.290 --> 00:05:08.210
  • Because a lot of times people end up in places in their lives
  • 00:05:08.220 --> 00:05:12.110
  • and they ask a question how did I get there?
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:15.070
  • You know I was delivered from cocaine and now I'm back
  • 00:05:15.080 --> 00:05:17.080
  • in cocaine.
  • 00:05:17.090 --> 00:05:18.130
  • You were delivered from sleeping around.
  • 00:05:18.140 --> 00:05:20.130
  • Now you're sleeping around.
  • 00:05:20.140 --> 00:05:21.250
  • You were delivered from a whole lot of things and it was
  • 00:05:21.260 --> 00:05:25.000
  • the circumstance that triggered that negative emotion, that
  • 00:05:25.010 --> 00:05:27.200
  • you've never dealt with, that keeps moving you away
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:31.090
  • from the will of God for your life.
  • 00:05:31.100 --> 00:05:33.180
  • And I am telling you that God did not create you to be
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:36.280
  • mastered by your life.
  • 00:05:36.290 --> 00:05:38.190
  • He created you to master your life and I am telling you you
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:43.030
  • can.
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.070
  • So you must take charge of your-- over your negative
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:46.230
  • emotions.
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:48.000
  • Your negative emotions may be the reason why you keep getting
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:50.000
  • fired.
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:51.070
  • Your negative emotions may be the reason why it keeps you
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:53.030
  • from promotions.
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:54.030
  • It keeps you from jobs.
  • 00:05:54.040 --> 00:05:55.030
  • It keeps you from relationships.
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:56.240
  • It keeps you-- Satan knows this.
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:06:00.080
  • He knows that if you don't-- can't deal with your negative
  • 00:06:00.090 --> 00:06:03.000
  • emotion, he can move you away from the will of God, away
  • 00:06:03.010 --> 00:06:06.030
  • from the blessings of God.
  • 00:06:06.040 --> 00:06:08.080
  • And then we get a revelation coming to our church that we can
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:12.030
  • master our emotions and we cannot ignore this because God
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:15.270
  • is obviously tryin' to take us to a place that's going
  • 00:06:15.280 --> 00:06:19.140
  • to satisfy your thirst of understanding the will
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:22.230
  • and purpose for your life.
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:25.090
  • In fact, I believe that there are some gifts and anointings
  • 00:06:25.100 --> 00:06:29.010
  • on the inside of you that as the world gets darker
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:31.260
  • and darker, God's gonna begin to summon and turn on some
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:34.250
  • of those anointings and gifts some of you didn't even know you
  • 00:06:34.260 --> 00:06:37.250
  • had, praise God.
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:39.170
  • But if you can harness the right emotions and if you can work
  • 00:06:39.180 --> 00:06:43.000
  • towards being emotionally stable, I'll tell you what
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:48.040
  • a gift it is to walk in meekness.
  • 00:06:48.050 --> 00:06:51.020
  • What a gift it is to walk in self control that when this
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:55.010
  • negative emotion comes and in the past, you would
  • 00:06:55.020 --> 00:06:57.250
  • normally go off or do something stupid that would end you
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:07:00.090
  • in jail or any-- and you don't do that anymore and you
  • 00:07:00.100 --> 00:07:03.080
  • recognize I am not the same person, why?
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:06.170
  • Because I now can take charge of what used to take charge
  • 00:07:06.180 --> 00:07:10.090
  • of my life.
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:12.140
  • If you understand that say amen somebody.
  • 00:07:12.150 --> 00:07:18.000
  • And so, we see Jesus in Romans chapter 8 and 6.
  • 00:07:18.010 --> 00:07:21.190
  • Romans 8 and 6 says, "To be carnally minded will lead you
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:24.110
  • to death, but to be spiritually minded will lead you to life
  • 00:07:24.120 --> 00:07:28.040
  • and peace."
  • 00:07:28.050 --> 00:07:29.090
  • What does it mean to be a carnal minded person?
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:31.120
  • That means you are allowing your senses, which you can see, hear,
  • 00:07:31.130 --> 00:07:35.100
  • taste, touch, feel, you're allowing those things that God
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:38.140
  • gave to you-- He gave you those senses to enjoy life, but he
  • 00:07:38.150 --> 00:07:41.120
  • didn't give you those senses to govern and to dominate your
  • 00:07:41.130 --> 00:07:44.120
  • life.
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:45.160
  • You see somethin' or you on the X Ray and all of a sudden
  • 00:07:45.170 --> 00:07:48.240
  • it dominates your thinking, it dominates your mind.
  • 00:07:48.250 --> 00:07:50.210
  • You go to bed thinking about it.
  • 00:07:50.220 --> 00:07:51.230
  • You get up thinkin' about it.
  • 00:07:51.240 --> 00:07:53.000
  • No, he gave it to you so you can see it but not to be dominated
  • 00:07:53.010 --> 00:07:55.080
  • by it.
  • 00:07:55.090 --> 00:07:56.090
  • And you can't be dominated by your senses.
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:59.080
  • You've got to know I'm not moved by what I see.
  • 00:07:59.090 --> 00:08:01.280
  • I'm not moved by what I feel.
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:03.060
  • Glory to God, I'm not moved by what I hear.
  • 00:08:03.070 --> 00:08:06.090
  • I am moved by the Word of the living God in spite
  • 00:08:06.100 --> 00:08:09.200
  • of what I see, in spite of what I feel, in spite of what I hear.
  • 00:08:09.210 --> 00:08:13.180
  • And let me throw in sin, nothing happens until you say it.
  • 00:08:13.190 --> 00:08:19.190
  • You gotta learn how to speak to those negative emotions.
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:25.060
  • You got to do like David did, soul bless the Lord.
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:28.170
  • That means when you don't feel like blessing the Lord but you
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:30.180
  • know that there's power in praise, you gotta speak
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:33.170
  • to yourself in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual psalms.
  • 00:08:33.180 --> 00:08:37.000
  • And you gotta say, I know you don't feel like doing it but we
  • 00:08:37.010 --> 00:08:40.000
  • don't live our life by how we feel.
  • 00:08:40.010 --> 00:08:42.050
  • We live our life by the government of the Word
  • 00:08:42.060 --> 00:08:44.280
  • of God.
  • 00:08:44.290 --> 00:08:45.280
  • And if God said to do it, we're gonna do it.
  • 00:08:45.290 --> 00:08:48.020
  • You've been redeemed.
  • 00:08:48.030 --> 00:08:49.100
  • So let the redeemed of the Lord say so not because you feel
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:52.210
  • like it because you know that's the thing to do.
  • 00:08:52.220 --> 00:08:58.210
  • Well, I better calm down a little bit, I feel
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:01.190
  • like preaching the rug off the floor this morning.
  • 00:09:01.200 --> 00:09:05.020
  • Because your life is not gonna be the same.
  • 00:09:05.030 --> 00:09:08.110
  • Some of you've been beat up enough.
  • 00:09:08.120 --> 00:09:10.040
  • Some of you can just been has just been railroaded.
  • 00:09:10.050 --> 00:09:12.140
  • You've been hurt.
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:13.140
  • You get up and hurt, you go to bed and hurt.
  • 00:09:13.150 --> 00:09:15.160
  • You let your feelings govern your life.
  • 00:09:15.170 --> 00:09:17.120
  • Your feelings pushing people away from ya.
  • 00:09:17.130 --> 00:09:19.210
  • Your feelings dogging relationships out, messing
  • 00:09:19.220 --> 00:09:22.050
  • up marriages.
  • 00:09:22.060 --> 00:09:23.100
  • Your feeling stopping the very best that God put in you
  • 00:09:23.110 --> 00:09:26.090
  • from rising to the top to bless humanity because you can't
  • 00:09:26.100 --> 00:09:29.190
  • figure out how to control your nasty attitude.
  • 00:09:29.200 --> 00:09:34.140
  • I don't know what pit you're in.
  • 00:09:34.150 --> 00:09:35.260
  • I don't know what you fell in this past week.
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:38.090
  • All I know is you don't have to stay there.
  • 00:09:38.100 --> 00:09:41.170
  • All I know is greater is he that is on the inside of you than he
  • 00:09:41.180 --> 00:09:45.270
  • that is in the world.
  • 00:09:45.280 --> 00:09:47.080
  • And you might be crying a lot, you might be hurting a lot, you
  • 00:09:47.090 --> 00:09:50.260
  • might be weeping a lot, you might be in depression a whole
  • 00:09:50.270 --> 00:09:53.260
  • lot, but I'm telling you that Jesus came to redeem you
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:57.110
  • from depression, and whom the Son sets free is free
  • 00:09:57.120 --> 00:10:01.130
  • indeed.
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:02.160
  • No more depression.
  • 00:10:02.170 --> 00:10:08.040
  • Turn to your neighbor and say, "I'm out."
  • 00:10:08.050 --> 00:10:14.050
  • So, let's begin, what is depression?
  • 00:10:23.040 --> 00:10:26.080
  • Here's how we've defined it.
  • 00:10:26.090 --> 00:10:28.160
  • Depression is feelings that come from thinking thoughts that
  • 00:10:28.170 --> 00:10:33.090
  • weigh you down.
  • 00:10:33.100 --> 00:10:35.240
  • Feelings, depression is a feeling.
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:38.230
  • Depression is an emotion.
  • 00:10:38.240 --> 00:10:40.240
  • It comes from thoughts or it comes from a way of thinking
  • 00:10:40.250 --> 00:10:44.210
  • that weighs you down.
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:47.110
  • What have you been thinking about lately?
  • 00:10:47.120 --> 00:10:50.200
  • What thoughts that you keep hangin' onto that just keep
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:55.100
  • weighing you down?
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:58.060
  • What hurtful thoughts you keep hangin' onto,
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:11:00.280
  • fearful thoughts you keep hang onto,
  • 00:11:00.290 --> 00:11:02.190
  • condemning thoughts that you keep hanging onto,
  • 00:11:02.200 --> 00:11:05.060
  • and they weigh you down?
  • 00:11:05.070 --> 00:11:09.140
  • It's external pressure or stress comin' from the outside entering
  • 00:11:09.150 --> 00:11:14.280
  • into your heart to weigh you down.
  • 00:11:14.290 --> 00:11:20.070
  • What outside things, things that come from outside circumstances,
  • 00:11:20.080 --> 00:11:24.040
  • stuff that's happened, things you've encountered, things that
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:28.020
  • have been painful and hurtful and dark, and they've entered
  • 00:11:28.030 --> 00:11:32.020
  • into your thinking and it weighs you down.
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:34.210
  • Still comin' from the outside and it weighs you down.
  • 00:11:34.220 --> 00:11:38.030
  • So if we're to deal with how you feel, if we are to deal
  • 00:11:38.040 --> 00:11:41.050
  • with your depression, and if depression is defined as
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:44.080
  • feelings that come from thoughts that weigh you down.
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:46.250
  • You have to deal with your thinking.
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:49.160
  • You have to deal with what you're thinkin' about.
  • 00:11:49.170 --> 00:11:52.110
  • Most people think in church, well, that's not important
  • 00:11:52.120 --> 00:11:55.090
  • and we want to cover it up with somethin', but if you're
  • 00:11:55.100 --> 00:11:58.070
  • going to deal with how you feel, you've got to deal with how you
  • 00:11:58.080 --> 00:12:00.020
  • think.
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:01.110
  • As a man thinketh, comma, in his heart so is he.
  • 00:12:01.120 --> 00:12:06.020
  • As a man thinketh.
  • 00:12:06.030 --> 00:12:07.090
  • So how you think-- how you think is going to determine how you
  • 00:12:07.100 --> 00:12:09.190
  • feel.
  • 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:10.260
  • How you think is gonna determine really who you are because you
  • 00:12:10.270 --> 00:12:13.290
  • are a sum total of how you think.
  • 00:12:14.000 --> 00:12:16.150
  • And you'll never consider how you think.
  • 00:12:16.160 --> 00:12:19.020
  • And what is it that you're thinking about the most?
  • 00:12:19.030 --> 00:12:21.270
  • What thoughts are you holding on the most?
  • 00:12:21.280 --> 00:12:23.210
  • Thoughts that came from circumstances that happened
  • 00:12:23.220 --> 00:12:26.060
  • 30 years ago, you still hangin' onto those thoughts.
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:30.020
  • And now it's entered into your heart and it's weighing you
  • 00:12:30.030 --> 00:12:32.070
  • down.
  • 00:12:32.080 --> 00:12:34.090
  • Somebody says, "Well, you know, brother Dollar, I've been
  • 00:12:34.100 --> 00:12:37.030
  • lookin' at my thinking, trying to change my thinking, but I
  • 00:12:37.040 --> 00:12:40.080
  • don't seem to know how to change my thinking."
  • 00:12:40.090 --> 00:12:41.260
  • Because you can't just try to change your thinking.
  • 00:12:41.270 --> 00:12:44.270
  • The way you think has a foundation as well.
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:46.260
  • The way you think just like the way you feel comes
  • 00:12:46.270 --> 00:12:49.150
  • from how you think, the way you think comes from what your
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:51.220
  • exposing yourself to.
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:54.010
  • So check out what you're exposing yourself to.
  • 00:12:54.020 --> 00:12:55.240
  • How much exposure time are you giving God's Word?
  • 00:12:55.250 --> 00:13:00.260
  • How much exposure time are you giving the Spirit of God or has
  • 00:13:00.270 --> 00:13:05.130
  • he been replaced by something else?
  • 00:13:05.140 --> 00:13:07.220
  • Boy, I never would've dreamed that I would be in the middle
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:10.180
  • of an idolatrous generation, such as this one, where we keep
  • 00:13:10.190 --> 00:13:16.120
  • trying to replace God with something else.
  • 00:13:16.130 --> 00:13:19.170
  • We just can't believe that he can do it.
  • 00:13:19.180 --> 00:13:24.130
  • So even when it comes to the emotion of depression, we
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:26.270
  • wanna replace God.
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:28.040
  • We want to replace his Word.
  • 00:13:28.050 --> 00:13:30.080
  • We want to say, "Well, you know I know God can do it but I'm
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:33.030
  • going to go-- I'm going to go see me a therapist and I'm gonna
  • 00:13:33.040 --> 00:13:35.140
  • give me some anti depressants."
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:37.060
  • And we replace God with what the world uses.
  • 00:13:37.070 --> 00:13:41.110
  • And we have the most powerful antidote ever to depression,
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:45.180
  • but we just can't believe it, so we go and borrow
  • 00:13:45.190 --> 00:13:49.160
  • from the world.
  • 00:13:49.170 --> 00:13:51.210
  • He's a healer of your emotional situations but you won't trust
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:56.090
  • him.
  • 00:13:56.100 --> 00:13:58.110
  • He's the deliverer, but you won't trust.
  • 00:13:58.120 --> 00:14:01.140
  • Well, brother Dollar, you ought not be telling people that.
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:03.170
  • I am going to tell you that because my God's greater than
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:05.220
  • other stuff.
  • 00:14:05.230 --> 00:14:07.200
  • He's greater than that other stuff.
  • 00:14:07.210 --> 00:14:08.280
  • And I tell ya, you need to-- you remember that old Baptist song,
  • 00:14:08.290 --> 00:14:12.260
  • Try Jesus.
  • 00:14:12.270 --> 00:14:14.110
  • He's all right.
  • 00:14:14.120 --> 00:14:15.110
  • Try Jesus, I done tried.
  • 00:14:15.120 --> 00:14:17.010
  • And man, he's all right.
  • 00:14:17.020 --> 00:14:19.080
  • He's a doctor in the sick room.
  • 00:14:19.090 --> 00:14:22.080
  • He's all right.
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:24.050
  • Y'all know what I'm talkin' about, boy, y'all felt that
  • 00:14:24.060 --> 00:14:26.070
  • thing, it's still got the juice on it, amen.
  • 00:14:26.080 --> 00:14:28.160
  • Now if you're a millennial you like...
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:33.200
  • We always knew the right thing, but it's got to come down to us
  • 00:14:33.210 --> 00:14:36.280
  • believing it and doing it.
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:38.120
  • Your right believing is gonna eat where you're right living.
  • 00:14:38.130 --> 00:14:41.030
  • You believe right, you're gonna live right.
  • 00:14:41.040 --> 00:14:42.280
  • You believe wrong, you're gonna live wrong.
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.250
  • When are we gonna stop replacing God with something or somebody?
  • 00:14:44.260 --> 00:14:50.260
  • That's called idolatry.
  • 00:14:51.020 --> 00:14:54.090
  • When are we going to let him be enough and trust him?
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:59.130
  • And how you do that if you'll expose your life to what God has
  • 00:14:59.140 --> 00:15:04.170
  • to say, if you expose your life to God's Word then that exposure
  • 00:15:04.180 --> 00:15:08.120
  • is gonna produce Godly thinking.
  • 00:15:08.130 --> 00:15:10.140
  • And that Godly thinking is gonna produce Godly emotions.
  • 00:15:10.150 --> 00:15:14.150
  • But if you don't think what you're doing, and what you're
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:16.170
  • hangin' around with, and what you're exposing yourself to-- if
  • 00:15:16.180 --> 00:15:19.100
  • you don't think it's important because you're working so hard
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:21.200
  • to be liberal that you're not paying attention
  • 00:15:21.210 --> 00:15:26.290
  • to the consequences of some of those decisions to be
  • 00:15:27.000 --> 00:15:29.130
  • liberal.
  • 00:15:29.140 --> 00:15:30.260
  • You know we want to act like under grace we don't have
  • 00:15:30.270 --> 00:15:34.110
  • any boundaries, and yet you can make all these decisions,
  • 00:15:34.120 --> 00:15:37.180
  • but there are consequences for some of the decisions you
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:39.280
  • make.
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:41.110
  • And if you make a decision to expose yourself to crazy
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:44.030
  • things.
  • 00:15:44.040 --> 00:15:45.030
  • It's like a farmer.
  • 00:15:45.040 --> 00:15:46.030
  • This whole life is like a farmer.
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:47.090
  • What you sow you're gonna harvest.
  • 00:15:47.100 --> 00:15:50.270
  • So the question is what are you sowing?
  • 00:15:50.280 --> 00:15:52.210
  • What are you doing?
  • 00:15:52.220 --> 00:15:53.260
  • What are you exposing yourself to the most of the time?
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:57.030
  • "Well, I don't think nothing wrong with that.
  • 00:15:57.040 --> 00:15:59.120
  • I don't think--" Now, you're so busy trying to, "I don't
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:01.260
  • think nothing wrong with this.
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:02.260
  • I don't think nothing wrong with this.
  • 00:16:02.270 --> 00:16:04.070
  • Ain't no way--" I'm gonna give you a real easy test.
  • 00:16:04.080 --> 00:16:06.190
  • Just look at you and then you don't have to think something's
  • 00:16:06.200 --> 00:16:11.150
  • wrong with it.
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:12.230
  • You can look at you and check yourself out and you can know
  • 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:15.260
  • something must have been wrong with that.
  • 00:16:15.270 --> 00:16:21.170
  • And we keep doing it because it feels good but it's not working
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:25.080
  • any good in us.
  • 00:16:25.090 --> 00:16:26.130
  • So what are you exposing yourself to is determining how
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:29.030
  • you think and your thinking is determining how you feel.
  • 00:16:29.040 --> 00:16:31.290
  • So if you feel depressed then change the way you think.
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:35.090
  • If you're thinking thoughts that are weighing you down then
  • 00:16:35.100 --> 00:16:40.060
  • change the exposure that you're hangin' around that's producing
  • 00:16:40.070 --> 00:16:45.200
  • those thoughts that weigh you down, that's producing
  • 00:16:45.210 --> 00:16:48.040
  • the depression.
  • 00:16:48.050 --> 00:16:49.120
  • And then once that depression stays there you're gonna start
  • 00:16:49.130 --> 00:16:51.080
  • making emotional decisions based on how you feel.
  • 00:16:51.090 --> 00:16:55.060
  • And those emotional decisions will call forth the actions,
  • 00:16:55.070 --> 00:16:58.040
  • the habits, and the characters that will bring you to your
  • 00:16:58.050 --> 00:17:01.110
  • destination.
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:02.280
  • That's how it works.
  • 00:17:02.290 --> 00:17:04.230
  • You don't ever have to go and be in dark.
  • 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:06.160
  • "I don't know why my life like it is."
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:08.180
  • I'm telling you why your life is like it is.
  • 00:17:08.190 --> 00:17:12.010
  • I'll tell you again, your life is the way it is, good or bad,
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:16.080
  • because of what you expose yourself to.
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:18.200
  • That's producing the way you think, that's producing the way
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:20.240
  • you feel, that's producing the decisions you make.
  • 00:17:20.250 --> 00:17:23.250
  • Once you make a decision it's an open door into reality.
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:25.290
  • So the action now is born.
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:27.190
  • Then the habit is created, then the habit creates you.
  • 00:17:27.200 --> 00:17:30.170
  • And then that habit creates your character.
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:32.260
  • And then that character creates your destination.
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.210
  • And you are where you are based on your exposure.
  • 00:17:34.220 --> 00:17:40.210
  • Yep.
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:44.290
  • "You mean to tell me, we back to having to get in the Word
  • 00:17:45.000 --> 00:17:47.140
  • again?"
  • 00:17:47.150 --> 00:17:48.140
  • Should have never left it.
  • 00:17:48.150 --> 00:17:51.030
  • "You mean to tell me we back to having to watch what we say?"
  • 00:17:51.040 --> 00:17:54.010
  • Should have never left it.
  • 00:17:54.020 --> 00:17:58.220
  • And that is if you want to change.
  • 00:17:58.230 --> 00:17:59.290
  • Now, hey, if you don't want to change and it's bad but you
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:03.010
  • feeling good about it, hey, dude, you are-- here's the great
  • 00:18:03.020 --> 00:18:05.240
  • thing about your life, you are a free moral agent.
  • 00:18:05.250 --> 00:18:08.170
  • You can do whatever you want to do but if you're tired
  • 00:18:08.180 --> 00:18:15.050
  • of going down that same path that ends in destruction.
  • 00:18:15.060 --> 00:18:20.020
  • See, some of US have gone down the path that you keep
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:22.280
  • tryin' to go down.
  • 00:18:22.290 --> 00:18:23.280
  • We keep telling you it's a dead end.
  • 00:18:23.290 --> 00:18:27.120
  • We keep sayin', "Oh, down road street?
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:30.140
  • Oh, I know where that goes.
  • 00:18:30.150 --> 00:18:31.140
  • That goes you a dead end."
  • 00:18:31.150 --> 00:18:32.240
  • And then you keep going around, "Well, I'm gonna turn to see.
  • 00:18:32.250 --> 00:18:38.000
  • I don't believe it, I want to see for myself."
  • 00:18:38.010 --> 00:18:40.110
  • I know a dead end when I see it.
  • 00:18:40.120 --> 00:18:43.000
  • I got out and walked around the sign.
  • 00:18:43.010 --> 00:18:44.260
  • It was a cliff.
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:47.110
  • There were other cars that were wrecked at the bottom of it
  • 00:18:47.120 --> 00:18:50.140
  • because they didn't believe it was a dead end.
  • 00:18:50.150 --> 00:18:54.010
  • That's exactly what I'm tryin' to show you.
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:57.100
  • There's a path that leads to life and there is a path that
  • 00:18:57.110 --> 00:19:00.100
  • leads to destruction.
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:02.000
  • You keep choosing the path that other people have gone through.
  • 00:19:02.010 --> 00:19:05.280
  • "But that's the old fashioned.
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:08.080
  • You all the baby boomers.
  • 00:19:08.090 --> 00:19:09.280
  • That's old fashioned."
  • 00:19:09.290 --> 00:19:11.200
  • I don't care what kind of fashion it is, it's still
  • 00:19:11.210 --> 00:19:13.190
  • a dead end.
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:19.200
  • Sometimes your whole life can just excel just by listening
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:24.220
  • to people who have traveled down that path.
  • 00:19:24.230 --> 00:19:30.130
  • You don't need no revelation.
  • 00:19:30.140 --> 00:19:31.250
  • You don't even need to hear from the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:19:31.260 --> 00:19:33.230
  • You can hear from the people who went down the path.
  • 00:19:33.240 --> 00:19:39.240
  • You've got those little Waze, a little traffic things, and it
  • 00:19:42.090 --> 00:19:45.020
  • shows you-- I think it's like red, and shows you when
  • 00:19:45.030 --> 00:19:46.150
  • it's got a lot of traffic, and you look at it, it says lots
  • 00:19:46.160 --> 00:19:50.200
  • of traffic, traffic not moving.
  • 00:19:50.210 --> 00:19:53.070
  • "I don't believe it."
  • 00:19:53.080 --> 00:19:59.080
  • Okay, I think you see where we're coming from.
  • 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:03.100
  • Proverbs 12:25, the New King James version.
  • 00:20:03.110 --> 00:20:07.280
  • I want you to see this, ready, read.
  • 00:20:07.290 --> 00:20:10.180
  • "Anxiety in the heart of a man causes depression, but a good
  • 00:20:10.190 --> 00:20:16.170
  • word makes it glad."
  • 00:20:16.180 --> 00:20:19.080
  • I'm tryin' to give you a good word this morning.
  • 00:20:19.090 --> 00:20:22.060
  • Anxiety and or another way to say it, worry.
  • 00:20:22.070 --> 00:20:28.010
  • Worry is negative meditation on the wrong thing.
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:35.110
  • The thoughts, the feelings that come from the thoughts that
  • 00:20:35.120 --> 00:20:38.000
  • weigh you down, that's worry.
  • 00:20:38.010 --> 00:20:41.120
  • It's meditating on the negative thing.
  • 00:20:41.130 --> 00:20:44.100
  • And he says, "Anxiety," or worry, "in the heart of a man
  • 00:20:44.110 --> 00:20:49.150
  • will cause depression."
  • 00:20:49.160 --> 00:20:55.160
  • Was it 1 Peter 5 and 7?
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:57.170
  • He says, "Take the anxiety, the worry, and the care and cast
  • 00:20:57.180 --> 00:21:03.180
  • it on God because he cares for you."
  • 00:21:03.190 --> 00:21:08.130
  • Again, we say, "I don't believe that."
  • 00:21:08.140 --> 00:21:10.140
  • And so you keep it.
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:12.130
  • And the longer you keep it, the more potential you have
  • 00:21:12.140 --> 00:21:16.040
  • of it weighing you down, of it weighing you down.
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:20.170
  • So, now, let's look at some causes of depression this
  • 00:21:20.180 --> 00:21:23.170
  • morning because most depressed people have experienced some
  • 00:21:23.180 --> 00:21:27.030
  • kind of trauma, which has brought sorrow into their lives.
  • 00:21:27.040 --> 00:21:32.110
  • Now, I want to show you the causes but then I want
  • 00:21:32.120 --> 00:21:35.010
  • to show you some scriptures that will encourage you even
  • 00:21:35.020 --> 00:21:37.000
  • in the midst of the cause.
  • 00:21:37.010 --> 00:21:38.070
  • So, go to Psalms 40, verses 1 through 3 in the New Living
  • 00:21:38.080 --> 00:21:43.000
  • Translation.
  • 00:21:43.010 --> 00:21:44.080
  • Psalms 40, verses 1 through 3 in the New Living Translation.
  • 00:21:44.090 --> 00:21:49.010
  • So I'm gonna give you five causes of depression and I want
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:51.160
  • you to build your guard up against it now.
  • 00:21:51.170 --> 00:21:54.020
  • This is the only reason I'm givin' it to you.
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:55.230
  • So you can build your guard up against it.
  • 00:21:55.240 --> 00:21:58.150
  • Okay, The first cause of depression: sorrow.
  • 00:21:58.160 --> 00:22:03.040
  • Sorrow.
  • 00:22:03.050 --> 00:22:06.070
  • Sorrow can cause depression in your life.
  • 00:22:06.080 --> 00:22:12.080
  • Psalms 40 says, "I waited patiently for the Lord to help
  • 00:22:13.070 --> 00:22:16.210
  • me and he turned to me and heard my cry.
  • 00:22:16.220 --> 00:22:22.220
  • I waited patiently for him to help me and he turned to me.
  • 00:22:24.220 --> 00:22:28.020
  • He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud
  • 00:22:28.030 --> 00:22:33.250
  • and out of the mire.
  • 00:22:33.260 --> 00:22:35.180
  • He set my feet on solid ground and he steadied me and as I
  • 00:22:35.190 --> 00:22:41.190
  • walked along."
  • 00:22:43.130 --> 00:22:44.200
  • Man that's God walking with you, right?
  • 00:22:44.210 --> 00:22:46.290
  • Look at verse 3.
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:48.160
  • He says, "He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise
  • 00:22:48.170 --> 00:22:53.290
  • to our God.
  • 00:22:54.000 --> 00:22:55.100
  • Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
  • 00:22:55.110 --> 00:22:59.080
  • They will put their trust in the Lord."
  • 00:22:59.090 --> 00:23:02.200
  • So, ladies and gentlemen, I'm not saying that you won't ever
  • 00:23:02.210 --> 00:23:07.060
  • see sorrow.
  • 00:23:07.070 --> 00:23:10.100
  • I am saying that when sorrow comes you can turn to God
  • 00:23:10.110 --> 00:23:15.050
  • and trust him because he'll lift you up out of despair.
  • 00:23:15.060 --> 00:23:20.110
  • He'll lift you up out of a pit.
  • 00:23:20.120 --> 00:23:23.030
  • But sorrow, if you don't attack it.
  • 00:23:23.040 --> 00:23:26.260
  • And like I said before, the way to deal with sorrow is if you're
  • 00:23:26.270 --> 00:23:30.250
  • dealing with those thoughts of sorrow, I go to Psalms 40,
  • 00:23:30.260 --> 00:23:34.090
  • and I'd read Psalms, 40.
  • 00:23:34.100 --> 00:23:35.180
  • And it tells me what God will do if I turn my attention there
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:40.000
  • then it delivers me up out of the sorrow.
  • 00:23:40.010 --> 00:23:42.020
  • It'll turn my time-- the Bible talks about, attend to my Word,
  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:46.290
  • attend to my Word.
  • 00:23:47.000 --> 00:23:48.070
  • Give attention, give attention to the Word rather than giving
  • 00:23:48.080 --> 00:23:51.170
  • attention to the situation that caused the sorrow.
  • 00:23:51.180 --> 00:23:55.260
  • Sorrow causes depression.
  • 00:23:55.270 --> 00:23:58.130
  • It is a cause of depression, but I'll go a step further.
  • 00:23:58.140 --> 00:24:02.230
  • I met people who have been in sorrow for a long time.
  • 00:24:02.240 --> 00:24:06.290
  • I met people, who come to church and shout at church, get happy
  • 00:24:07.000 --> 00:24:09.200
  • at church, go home, sit there for about five minutes,
  • 00:24:09.210 --> 00:24:12.020
  • and think about all that other stuff and be filled with sorrow.
  • 00:24:12.030 --> 00:24:16.130
  • And instead of you being filled with sorrow, be filled with his
  • 00:24:16.140 --> 00:24:18.280
  • Word.
  • 00:24:18.290 --> 00:24:20.150
  • If you'll be filled with his Word, praise God, the sorrow
  • 00:24:20.160 --> 00:24:24.070
  • won't be able to attach itself to your life and maintain
  • 00:24:24.080 --> 00:24:29.040
  • depression, okay?
  • 00:24:29.050 --> 00:24:31.080
  • Number two.
  • 00:24:31.090 --> 00:24:35.040
  • I want you to go to Psalms 33 in the King James.
  • 00:24:35.050 --> 00:24:37.270
  • Psalms 33.
  • 00:24:37.280 --> 00:24:39.050
  • Number two, second cause of depression, disappointment
  • 00:24:39.060 --> 00:24:45.280
  • or unfulfilled expectations.
  • 00:24:45.290 --> 00:24:48.100
  • Disappointment, which is unfulfilled expectations.
  • 00:24:48.110 --> 00:24:54.230
  • You become disappointed when what you expected to happen
  • 00:24:54.240 --> 00:24:58.040
  • didn't happen.
  • 00:24:58.050 --> 00:25:00.150
  • Creflo: In every situation that happens you can
  • 00:25:00.160 --> 00:25:03.160
