  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:00:42.230 --> 00:00:47.290
  • that love is here to stay.
  • 00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:50.140
  • Oh, it's time to live a new life.
  • 00:00:50.150 --> 00:00:54.070
  • Oh, let this love shine bright in you.
  • 00:00:54.080 --> 00:00:58.120
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace,

  • so we embrace your love today.
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:05.040
  • We are changed.
  • 00:01:05.050 --> 00:01:09.150
  • Creflo Dollar: Let's begin this morning in 3 John verse 2.
  • 00:01:10.280 --> 00:01:15.000
  • We've been talking about mastering your emotions.
  • 00:01:15.010 --> 00:01:19.220
  • We've been talking about overcoming and having authority
  • 00:01:19.230 --> 00:01:22.040
  • over your emotions, and how it is the will of God for you to
  • 00:01:22.050 --> 00:01:25.250
  • experience emotional stability in your life.
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:29.080
  • How it is God's will for you to understand that you
  • 00:01:29.090 --> 00:01:32.040
  • can control how you feel.
  • 00:01:32.050 --> 00:01:35.030
  • It's God's will for you to understand that,
  • 00:01:35.040 --> 00:01:37.070
  • you know, you can be accountable for how you feel.
  • 00:01:37.080 --> 00:01:43.180
  • You can be accountable for your emotions.
  • 00:01:43.190 --> 00:01:44.280
  • And when you hear people say, "Well,
  • 00:01:44.290 --> 00:01:46.090
  • I just can't help how I feel," that is deception all day long.
  • 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:51.010
  • You can.
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:52.110
  • You can determine how you feel.
  • 00:01:52.120 --> 00:01:54.130
  • You can determine that you can master your emotions.
  • 00:01:54.140 --> 00:01:58.180
  • Now, 3 John, verse 2, let's read 3 John,
  • 00:01:58.190 --> 00:02:03.280
  • verse 2, out loud together.
  • 00:02:03.290 --> 00:02:07.080
  • Verse 2, he says, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou
  • 00:02:07.090 --> 00:02:10.260
  • mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers."
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:20.040
  • "Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper,"
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:23.060
  • or that you may be successful, all right?
  • 00:02:23.070 --> 00:02:26.190
  • Or that you may be whole.
  • 00:02:26.200 --> 00:02:28.110
  • He says, "I want you to be whole."
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:30.280
  • And when you talk about wholeness you're talking
  • 00:02:30.290 --> 00:02:32.240
  • about completeness.
  • 00:02:32.250 --> 00:02:34.220
  • When you talk about wholeness, you're talking about nothing
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:37.070
  • missing and nothing broken in your life,
  • 00:02:37.080 --> 00:02:39.090
  • and that's God's will.
  • 00:02:39.100 --> 00:02:40.270
  • God's will is for you to be whole and successful in every
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:43.290
  • area of your life.
  • 00:02:44.000 --> 00:02:47.000
  • Now, you need to know that.
  • 00:02:47.010 --> 00:02:48.110
  • You need to know that's God's will for your life so that when
  • 00:02:48.120 --> 00:02:51.010
  • it's not so, you can resist it.
  • 00:02:51.020 --> 00:02:54.050
  • You need to know what's God's will so you don't tolerate and
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:56.270
  • put up with something that's not God's will for your life, amen?
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:03:00.160
  • And he says, "And I want you to be in health,
  • 00:03:00.170 --> 00:03:02.180
  • even as your soul prospers."
  • 00:03:02.190 --> 00:03:04.260
  • So according to this Scripture, as goes your soul,
  • 00:03:04.270 --> 00:03:08.090
  • so goes your life.
  • 00:03:08.100 --> 00:03:10.170
  • Look at this in the Amplified.
  • 00:03:10.180 --> 00:03:12.010
  • "As goes your soul, so goes your life."
  • 00:03:12.020 --> 00:03:15.140
  • Now, you are a spirit being.
  • 00:03:15.150 --> 00:03:18.250
  • Say out loud, "I am a spirit being."
  • 00:03:18.260 --> 00:03:21.250
  • Say this out loud, "I have a soul and I live
  • 00:03:21.260 --> 00:03:25.050
  • in a physical body."
  • 00:03:25.060 --> 00:03:27.260
  • Now, you are not your soul and you are not your body.
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:31.130
  • Religion uses the words "spirit" and "soul" interchangeably as if
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:34.010
  • they are the same.
  • 00:03:34.020 --> 00:03:35.240
  • They are not the same.
  • 00:03:35.250 --> 00:03:37.040
  • You are a spirit. You have a soul.
  • 00:03:37.050 --> 00:03:39.080
  • You live in a physical body.
  • 00:03:39.090 --> 00:03:41.010
  • When a man dies, his spirit and soul leaves his body and that
  • 00:03:41.020 --> 00:03:43.290
  • body stays in a box and we accept our responsibility to do
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:47.120
  • what we need to do with it.
  • 00:03:47.130 --> 00:03:48.230
  • You are a spirit but you have a soul.
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:50.210
  • Now, we talk a lot about spiritual things and we should,
  • 00:03:50.220 --> 00:03:53.000
  • and we talk a lot about physical things and how God wants you
  • 00:03:53.010 --> 00:03:56.050
  • healthy and healed, and we should.
  • 00:03:56.060 --> 00:03:58.020
  • But we kind of bypass the soul area,
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:04:01.030
  • which is--it's the place where everything happens.
  • 00:04:01.040 --> 00:04:05.040
  • Your soul is made up of your mind,
  • 00:04:05.050 --> 00:04:07.110
  • your will, and your emotions.
  • 00:04:07.120 --> 00:04:11.020
  • Your mind, your will, and your emotions.
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:15.210
  • Now let's understand what the emotion area's all about.
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:18.030
  • Your emotions--your emotions, the word "e" in Latin,
  • 00:04:18.040 --> 00:04:24.110
  • that word "emotion," that word "e," it means up,
  • 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:28.150
  • out, and away in the Latin.
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:31.010
  • Up, out, and away.
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:32.110
  • Motion, motions up, out, and away.
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:35.110
  • The word literally means, as far as your emotions,
  • 00:04:35.120 --> 00:04:38.180
  • it is--they are feelings on the inside that are triggered by
  • 00:04:38.190 --> 00:04:45.130
  • pain or pleasure to move you in a direction.
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:50.070
  • Your emotions are feelings that are caused by pain or pleasure
  • 00:04:50.080 --> 00:04:54.240
  • to move you in a direction.
  • 00:04:54.250 --> 00:04:57.090
  • Now everybody in here has been called by God to accomplish of
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:05:01.150
  • the will of God for your life.
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:03.270
  • There's a purpose for everybody in the room.
  • 00:05:03.280 --> 00:05:05.180
  • You were--you're not just here for no reason at all.
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:07.250
  • There's a reason why you're here.
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:09.140
  • There's a purpose for you to accomplish.
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:11.080
  • There's a will of God for your life.
  • 00:05:11.090 --> 00:05:13.050
  • So now, the enemy gets together and they strategize to come up
  • 00:05:13.060 --> 00:05:17.000
  • with some strategy to try to stop you from accomplishing the
  • 00:05:17.010 --> 00:05:22.130
  • will of God for your life, to keep you away from that designed
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:26.020
  • purpose and place for your life.
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:28.210
  • And so the area of the emotions is where they're planning to try
  • 00:05:28.220 --> 00:05:33.110
  • to move you away from the will of God for your life because if
  • 00:05:33.120 --> 00:05:36.240
  • a circumstance can take place that triggers a negative
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:41.070
  • emotion, then those negative emotions that you don't deal
  • 00:05:41.080 --> 00:05:45.000
  • with, are designed to move you away from the
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:47.200
  • will of God for your life.
  • 00:05:47.210 --> 00:05:49.120
  • And yet, if the Word of God and praise and worship and the
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:52.190
  • presence of God triggers godly emotions and self-control,
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:56.080
  • then it's designed to move you right into that place where God
  • 00:05:56.090 --> 00:06:01.120
  • has planned for your life.
  • 00:06:01.130 --> 00:06:02.260
  • So you can have--you'll have godly emotions and you can have
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:05.190
  • negative emotions but emotions, that's the place where you're
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:10.040
  • gonna be moved.
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:11.160
  • Emotions, that's the place where you're gonna be moved.
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:14.090
  • You can either be moved closer to the will of God for your life
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:17.050
  • by allowing godly emotions to be triggered or you can allow all
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:21.210
  • of the circumstances and situations in the world to
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:24.080
  • trigger negative emotions and it moves you away from the will of
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:27.180
  • God for your life.
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:28.280
  • So how do you explain all the negative circumstances and
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:30.210
  • situations that happen?
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:32.030
  • Well, hey, those negative circumstances and situations are
  • 00:06:32.040 --> 00:06:35.060
  • designed to trigger some kind of negative emotion so that Satan
  • 00:06:35.070 --> 00:06:37.260
  • can now ride your emotions like a surfer rides a wave and move
  • 00:06:37.270 --> 00:06:42.280
  • you completely away from the will of God for your life and
  • 00:06:42.290 --> 00:06:46.020
  • move you into places where you have to pause and say,
  • 00:06:46.030 --> 00:06:48.150
  • "How did I get here?
  • 00:06:48.160 --> 00:06:50.060
  • How did I get in jail?"
  • 00:06:50.070 --> 00:06:51.160
  • Your emotions, I guarantee you, brought you there.
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:53.090
  • How did you get back into abusing drugs?
  • 00:06:53.100 --> 00:06:54.250
  • Your emotions got you there.
  • 00:06:54.260 --> 00:06:56.100
  • How did you get to the place where you pulled the trigger,
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:06:58.010
  • where you stabbed with the knife,
  • 00:06:58.020 --> 00:07:00.040
  • where you cussed somebody out, where you yielded to this sin,
  • 00:07:00.050 --> 00:07:02.260
  • where you ended up in the wrong bed?
  • 00:07:02.270 --> 00:07:04.210
  • How did you get there?
  • 00:07:04.220 --> 00:07:06.230
  • Your emotions took you there.
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:08.090
  • Those negative emotions took you there.
  • 00:07:08.100 --> 00:07:09.190
  • And don't come telling me, we don't need to hear about it in
  • 00:07:09.200 --> 00:07:12.010
  • church because where you end up, the majority of the time,
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:15.200
  • your emotions took you there.
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:18.290
  • The weakest man on the planet is a man that
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:23.030
  • cannot control his emotions.
  • 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:25.000
  • You're not a strong man 'cause you can cuss and demonstrate how
  • 00:07:25.010 --> 00:07:28.140
  • out of control you are.
  • 00:07:28.150 --> 00:07:30.010
  • And let me tell all of our single women,
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:31.240
  • if you are dating a man that cannot control his emotions,
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:35.080
  • he will attempt to try to control you later on because
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:38.070
  • when you can't control your emotions,
  • 00:07:38.080 --> 00:07:39.240
  • you'll attempt to try to control people.
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:43.150
  • And it's not God's will for you to try to control people.
  • 00:07:43.160 --> 00:07:45.070
  • So before you say, "I do," let's see how this man--see what
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:48.100
  • triggers when something don't go right.
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:51.050
  • You don't need to marry that joker until y'all can see him in
  • 00:07:51.060 --> 00:07:53.130
  • the negative situations to see how he--see what
  • 00:07:53.140 --> 00:07:57.160
  • come out of him first.
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:58.280
  • You don't wanna marry that joker and wake up the next morning he
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:00.180
  • floating over the bed with his head spinning around,
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:02.240
  • spitting up green stuff, talking about,
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:04.260
  • "Give me some coffee."
  • 00:08:04.270 --> 00:08:12.080
  • So this is a vital subject and I hope you're seeing it over
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:15.070
  • these, I don't know how long we've been preaching,
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:17.280
  • to see that this is a vital area of your life: taking charge
  • 00:08:17.290 --> 00:08:22.100
  • over your emotions.
  • 00:08:22.110 --> 00:08:24.180
  • It is not God's will for life to master you.
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:27.130
  • It is God's will for you to master life.
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:30.080
  • It is God's plan and will for you to
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.170
  • experience emotional stability.
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:35.010
  • It is God's plan and will for your life that when
  • 00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:37.100
  • circumstances happen and you trigger those negative emotions,
  • 00:08:37.110 --> 00:08:40.230
  • for you to take charge of your emotions and not allow your
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:44.010
  • emotions to take charge of you.
  • 00:08:44.020 --> 00:08:45.180
  • Now, please don't misunderstand me.
  • 00:08:45.190 --> 00:08:46.290
  • I am not talking about becoming emotionless.
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:49.090
  • That's another problem we have in the church.
  • 00:08:49.100 --> 00:08:51.160
  • We go too far to the left, too far to the right.
  • 00:08:51.170 --> 00:08:53.010
  • I'm not teaching you now to be emotionless and create another
  • 00:08:53.020 --> 00:08:55.060
  • level of phoniness.
  • 00:08:55.070 --> 00:08:56.250
  • You got issues.
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:59.210
  • Turn to your neighbor--this is awesome.
  • 00:08:59.220 --> 00:09:01.030
  • Turn to your neighbor and say, "You have an issue."
  • 00:09:01.040 --> 00:09:07.090
  • Okay, so don't get offended 'cause everybody in the
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:10.000
  • house got a issue.
  • 00:09:10.010 --> 00:09:13.210
  • Don't get offended.
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:15.010
  • E'bod', e'bod', 'scuse my English.
  • 00:09:15.020 --> 00:09:17.090
  • E'body in the house got a issue.
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:24.010
  • See, you wanna be judgmental of the person that fell in adultery
  • 00:09:24.020 --> 00:09:27.080
  • but you don't wanna judge yourself on how mean and rude
  • 00:09:27.090 --> 00:09:31.070
  • you are to the waitress that came to serve you
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:34.030
  • at the restaurant.
  • 00:09:34.040 --> 00:09:37.090
  • And what happens?
  • 00:09:37.100 --> 00:09:39.000
  • You don't--you don't take serious about the fact that I
  • 00:09:39.010 --> 00:09:41.210
  • can control my emotion, I can have authority over my emotions.
  • 00:09:41.220 --> 00:09:44.030
  • I am responsible for how I feel and my feelings do not have to
  • 00:09:44.040 --> 00:09:49.260
  • govern my life, amen?
  • 00:09:49.270 --> 00:09:54.010
  • And let's go look at one more Scripture and we'll start.
  • 00:09:54.020 --> 00:09:57.000
  • Romans chapter 8 and 6.
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:58.190
  • One more Scripture and I'll tell you what we're gonna talk about.
  • 00:09:58.200 --> 00:10:00.260
  • Romans chapter 8 and 6 'cause this is vital.
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:03.270
  • This is so important that as Christian people we know how
  • 00:10:03.280 --> 00:10:07.030
  • to take charge of our emotions because let
  • 00:10:07.040 --> 00:10:09.220
  • me tell you something.
  • 00:10:09.230 --> 00:10:11.020
  • As Christian people, if you don't know how to take charge
  • 00:10:11.030 --> 00:10:12.230
  • of your emotions, it demonstrates that you
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:15.240
  • are immature as a Christian.
  • 00:10:15.250 --> 00:10:17.160
  • I don't care how long you've been saved.
  • 00:10:17.170 --> 00:10:19.250
  • The authenticity of your spiritual maturity is based on
  • 00:10:19.260 --> 00:10:24.020
  • whether or not you can control your emotions.
  • 00:10:24.030 --> 00:10:26.130
  • And when you cannot control your emotions,
  • 00:10:26.140 --> 00:10:28.000
  • you give us evidence that you are not spiritually mature.
  • 00:10:28.010 --> 00:10:30.260
  • A lot of people like to go around and talk about how long
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:33.280
  • they've been saved and how spiritually mature they are.
  • 00:10:33.290 --> 00:10:36.110
  • And if you can't control your emotions,
  • 00:10:36.120 --> 00:10:38.000
  • you're not spiritually mature at all.
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:40.170
  • You're a baby that needs to grow up 'cause you can't
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:44.040
  • even control your emotions.
  • 00:10:44.050 --> 00:10:45.140
  • And Satan knows exactly what to do to get you out of the will of
  • 00:10:45.150 --> 00:10:47.130
  • God, just trigger your negative emotions with
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:50.170
  • a negative situation.
  • 00:10:50.180 --> 00:10:52.040
  • And I don't know why people think it strange
  • 00:10:52.050 --> 00:10:57.220
  • for you to have trouble when the Bible says: "They that
  • 00:10:57.230 --> 00:11:00.240
  • live godly shall suffer," what?
  • 00:11:00.250 --> 00:11:04.110
  • "Persecution."
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:05.210
  • And every time something bad happen to you,
  • 00:11:05.220 --> 00:11:07.010
  • "Why, Lord? Why?"
  • 00:11:07.020 --> 00:11:08.130
  • That's not what's supposed to--"Why me?"
  • 00:11:08.140 --> 00:11:12.260
  • Because you're here in this world.
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:14.210
  • In this world you will have tribulation.
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:16.260
  • But he said, "Be of good cheer. It's handled."
  • 00:11:16.270 --> 00:11:20.150
  • Now you have an opportunity to grow 'cause it triggered a
  • 00:11:20.160 --> 00:11:24.080
  • negative emotion and let's see who you're gonna go off on.
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:26.230
  • And instead of you going off on 'em,
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:28.080
  • you control that emotion, you make it submit to the Word of
  • 00:11:28.090 --> 00:11:31.270
  • God and all of a sudden, man, you're like,
  • 00:11:31.280 --> 00:11:34.140
  • "I'm growing."
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:36.210
  • Some of y'all remember that when anything crazy happen,
  • 00:11:36.220 --> 00:11:38.180
  • you just flout the mouth, give somebody a piece of your mind,
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:40.180
  • cuss 'em out, and then later on regret it.
  • 00:11:40.190 --> 00:11:43.230
  • But lately, you've not been doing that.
  • 00:11:43.240 --> 00:11:46.270
  • Lately, you pause, selah.
  • 00:11:46.280 --> 00:11:52.010
  • And you think down the road and you realize there's a better way
  • 00:11:52.020 --> 00:11:55.080
  • of handling this, and you respond like a Christian that
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:59.020
  • you say you are, amen?
  • 00:11:59.030 --> 00:12:02.270
  • Now look at this, Romans chapter 8 and 6: "For to be carnal--"
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:05.230
  • Let's read it together.
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:07.030
  • "For to be carnally minded is death;
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:10.110
  • but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:15.210
  • So what is a carnal mind?
  • 00:12:15.220 --> 00:12:17.010
  • A carnal mind is a mind that's dominated by your senses.
  • 00:12:17.020 --> 00:12:24.060
  • It is a mind that's dominated by your senses.
  • 00:12:24.070 --> 00:12:27.190
  • Carnality is, it literally means--the word "carnal"
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:32.130
  • literally means of the senses.
  • 00:12:32.140 --> 00:12:35.090
  • Of the five senses.
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:37.060
  • So now, how does that work?
  • 00:12:37.070 --> 00:12:39.010
  • If you see something that's negative and it dominates your
  • 00:12:39.020 --> 00:12:44.070
  • thinking, okay, and now it begins to govern your emotions,
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:52.160
  • you are carnally minded and it's gonna eventually lead to death.
  • 00:12:52.170 --> 00:12:57.120
  • If you hear something or in this day and time if you go to
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:13:00.280
  • Facebook and read something, don't--God gave you the senses
  • 00:13:00.290 --> 00:13:06.020
  • to help you enjoy life but not to be governed by what you see
  • 00:13:06.030 --> 00:13:10.170
  • and hear and feel.
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:13.120
  • He didn't give you feelings so you can feel pain and then let
  • 00:13:13.130 --> 00:13:17.060
  • it govern your life all the way down to your mouth and you start
  • 00:13:17.070 --> 00:13:19.220
  • saying, "I'm gonna die 'cause I feel this."
  • 00:13:19.230 --> 00:13:22.180
  • No, so don't be carnal minded or don't allow your life to be
  • 00:13:22.190 --> 00:13:27.120
  • governed and led by your sensory mechanisms because he said,
  • 00:13:27.130 --> 00:13:32.170
  • eventually it'll lead to death.
  • 00:13:32.180 --> 00:13:34.170
  • He said, "But to be spiritually minded is," what?
  • 00:13:34.180 --> 00:13:37.190
  • "Life and peace."
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:40.130
  • Well, what's it mean to be spiritually minded?
  • 00:13:40.140 --> 00:13:42.010
  • Well, John 6:63 says: "The words that I speak unto you,
  • 00:13:42.020 --> 00:13:44.150
  • they are spirit."
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:46.050
  • So spiritual mindedness cannot be achieved away
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:49.090
  • from the Word of God.
  • 00:13:49.100 --> 00:13:51.230
  • So I love that you enjoy being inspired but you
  • 00:13:51.240 --> 00:13:54.030
  • need to get some Word.
  • 00:13:54.040 --> 00:13:56.270
  • I love that you like shouting and doing cartwheels and
  • 00:13:56.280 --> 00:13:59.030
  • that's--but you need to understand some Word because I
  • 00:13:59.040 --> 00:14:01.290
  • can inspire you and get you excited and I can work on your
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:06.190
  • emotional realm but if you don't have some Word that will give
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:12.080
  • you a spiritual mind, your emotions change.
  • 00:14:12.090 --> 00:14:15.150
  • You can't live by your emotions, you'll go to bed feeling like
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:17.190
  • God loves you tonight and wake up wondering if
  • 00:14:17.200 --> 00:14:20.130
  • he loves you the next day.
  • 00:14:20.140 --> 00:14:22.180
  • You're not supposed to, you know, live by your feelings.
  • 00:14:22.190 --> 00:14:25.150
  • You're supposed to know God loves you because that's what
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:27.220
  • his Word says and you can take me to several Scriptures to show
  • 00:14:27.230 --> 00:14:29.190
  • me what his Word said.
  • 00:14:29.200 --> 00:14:31.290
  • That's becoming spiritually minded,
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:33.170
  • and when you're spiritually minded,
  • 00:14:33.180 --> 00:14:35.030
  • it'll govern your emotions and it will lead you to life and it
  • 00:14:35.040 --> 00:14:39.250
  • will lead you to peace.
  • 00:14:39.260 --> 00:14:42.190
  • But there's no scenario that exists that is going to allow
  • 00:14:42.200 --> 00:14:46.120
  • you to be spiritually minded without the Word.
  • 00:14:46.130 --> 00:14:53.040
  • All right, now today, we're gonna start dealing with the
  • 00:14:53.050 --> 00:14:56.080
  • specific emotions that have been ruining
  • 00:14:56.090 --> 00:15:00.270
  • and ruling people's lives.
  • 00:15:00.280 --> 00:15:03.170
  • And today we're gonna start with the emotion of depression.
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:06.160
  • How to win over depression.
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:11.150
  • First of all, what it is because,
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:13.290
  • man, I've met people who are depressed.
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:17.190
  • I've met Christians who are depressed, don't even know it.
  • 00:15:17.200 --> 00:15:19.270
  • They just keep trying to hide behind Scriptures and they won't
  • 00:15:19.280 --> 00:15:22.150
  • deal with the emotion.
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:24.070
  • I really can't stand that, a Christian that tries to hide
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.220
  • around Scripture and tries to live like
  • 00:15:26.230 --> 00:15:28.240
  • he doesn't have emotions.
  • 00:15:28.250 --> 00:15:30.100
  • That makes a very awful, terrible friend because,
  • 00:15:30.110 --> 00:15:34.010
  • you know, "Hey, how you doing?"
  • 00:15:34.020 --> 00:15:36.050
  • "This is the day the Lord has made,
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:37.150
  • and I will rejoice and be glad in it."
  • 00:15:37.160 --> 00:15:39.080
  • See, I can't have nothing to do with you 'cause I don't know
  • 00:15:39.090 --> 00:15:41.120
  • what you--I don't know what this is.
  • 00:15:41.130 --> 00:15:45.090
  • I don't know who this--I mean, you're attempting to try to be
  • 00:15:45.100 --> 00:15:47.010
  • spiritual but that's not spiritual, that's phony.
  • 00:15:47.020 --> 00:15:49.080
  • "Well, but, no, but that's speaking faith."
  • 00:15:49.090 --> 00:15:52.040
  • Yeah, I understand you're speaking faith so let me show
  • 00:15:52.050 --> 00:15:53.240
  • you how to do it.
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:55.070
  • So you're having a bad day and you're going through some rough
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:57.010
  • times, here's how you do it.
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:15:58.170
  • "Well, how are you doing today?"
  • 00:15:58.180 --> 00:16:00.030
  • "Well, you know what?
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:01.230
  • I'm going through some situations right now and
  • 00:16:01.240 --> 00:16:04.270
  • I believe God's Word and I'm gonna make it through
  • 00:16:04.280 --> 00:16:07.230
  • but all is well."
  • 00:16:07.240 --> 00:16:12.200
  • Ain't nothing wrong with that.
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:15.030
  • You think you're gonna go to hell by just letting people--I
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:17.150
  • don't even know how to minister to you.
  • 00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:18.290
  • You know, you look down and depressed.
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:21.210
  • What's wrong?
  • 00:16:21.220 --> 00:16:23.010
  • And then you turn around with a fake smile.
  • 00:16:23.020 --> 00:16:25.240
  • "I have the joy of the Lord."
  • 00:16:25.250 --> 00:16:27.140
  • Yeah, right.
  • 00:16:27.150 --> 00:16:28.240
  • You ain't even got to be a prophet to figure out,
  • 00:16:28.250 --> 00:16:30.040
  • "You lying, you're lying to yourself."
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:32.140
  • In other words, you won't deal with your emotions.
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:34.060
  • And if you don't deal with your emotions,
  • 00:16:34.070 --> 00:16:35.180
  • eventually they will deal with you and your phony wall.
  • 00:16:35.190 --> 00:16:42.280
  • So you can deal with 'em.
  • 00:16:42.290 --> 00:16:44.100
  • You know, somebody came to me when I was diagnosed with cancer
  • 00:16:44.110 --> 00:16:47.000
  • and, you know, said, "What's going on?"
  • 00:16:47.010 --> 00:16:49.080
  • I said, "Well, the doctor diagnosed me with cancer but
  • 00:16:49.090 --> 00:16:53.220
  • I believe that by his stripes I'm healed."
  • 00:16:53.230 --> 00:16:57.130
  • So I'm still in faith.
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:16:59.080
  • I'm still in faith, amen.
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:02.050
  • Now, let's define depression.
  • 00:17:02.060 --> 00:17:05.240
  • I wanna define it from three different perspectives
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:10.020
  • so you'll know what it is.
  • 00:17:10.030 --> 00:17:11.120
  • Now, you need to get excited about this because I'm getting
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:14.070
  • ready to unmask the demonic spirit of depression.
  • 00:17:14.080 --> 00:17:21.290
  • Not as a therapist would, because that's the issue.
  • 00:17:22.000 --> 00:17:25.060
  • You've been trusting the therapist and the psychologist
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:27.260
  • who only deal with the emotions and the mind and you've not
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:31.250
  • understood that God has supplied you with spiritual resources
  • 00:17:31.260 --> 00:17:35.160
  • that can teach you to be--that can show you how to be delivered
  • 00:17:35.170 --> 00:17:40.160
  • from depression while they're just showing
  • 00:17:40.170 --> 00:17:42.070
  • you how to manage it.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:44.290
  • All right, so let's look at it from three perspectives.
  • 00:17:45.000 --> 00:17:47.080
  • Number one, depression is a result of external pressures,
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:55.150
  • external stuff that's happening in your life, outside.
  • 00:17:55.160 --> 00:17:59.050
  • External pressures getting inside of our heart and
  • 00:17:59.060 --> 00:18:02.030
  • weighing us down.
  • 00:18:02.040 --> 00:18:05.110
  • So it's an external pressure getting inside of your heart,
  • 00:18:05.120 --> 00:18:09.160
  • weighing you down.
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:11.290
  • Something from the outside, some issue,
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:13.280
  • some circumstance: baby need a pair of shoes,
  • 00:18:13.290 --> 00:18:16.180
  • got a light bill due, I ain't got no money right now,
  • 00:18:16.190 --> 00:18:18.170
  • I just lost my job.
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:20.000
  • Some external pression--pressure coming from the outside and it's
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:24.210
  • internalized and it wants to get into your heart
  • 00:18:24.220 --> 00:18:28.220
  • and weigh you down.
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:35.170
  • What does he say in 1 Peter chapter--well,
  • 00:18:35.180 --> 00:18:37.110
  • let me go through these and then I'll go through the Scriptures.
  • 00:18:37.120 --> 00:18:39.260
  • The second perspective: depression is stress and
  • 00:18:39.270 --> 00:18:45.190
  • pressure internalized.
  • 00:18:45.200 --> 00:18:49.240
  • Stress and pressure internalized.
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:52.200
  • Now, it's still external, it's still coming from the outside,
  • 00:18:52.210 --> 00:18:56.000
  • but now, it's in your heart and it's weighing your heart down.
  • 00:18:56.010 --> 00:18:59.250
  • You're now internalizing it and it's weighing you down.
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:05.120
  • Have you ever had something on the outside and you just can't
  • 00:19:05.130 --> 00:19:08.180
  • let it go and it just--you're trying to,
  • 00:19:08.190 --> 00:19:10.230
  • you know, distract yourself from it but now once it gets on the
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:13.200
  • inside, it's just there.
  • 00:19:13.210 --> 00:19:15.260
  • You're constantly thinking about it,
  • 00:19:15.270 --> 00:19:17.080
  • it's--you're constantly rolling it over in your mind,
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:19.150
  • it's weighing you down.
  • 00:19:19.160 --> 00:19:21.200
  • Life feels heavy, it just feels like just,
  • 00:19:21.210 --> 00:19:24.090
  • you know, I just need to get rid of this.
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:26.150
  • It's just, you know, and you're walking with it and in some
  • 00:19:26.160 --> 00:19:28.290
  • cases you're walking with it for days.
  • 00:19:29.000 --> 00:19:33.120
  • Okay, let's look at this last one,
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:34.280
  • and I think this is the one that's gonna help us the most.
  • 00:19:34.290 --> 00:19:37.290
  • Depression is the feelings that come from thinking thoughts that
  • 00:19:38.000 --> 00:19:43.030
  • weigh you down.
  • 00:19:43.040 --> 00:19:45.160
  • It's feelings that come from thinking thoughts
  • 00:19:45.170 --> 00:19:49.040
  • that weigh you down.
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:52.280
  • Now, we got it down to a place where it's workable.
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:56.230
  • Feelings that come from thinking the thoughts
  • 00:19:56.240 --> 00:19:59.090
  • that weigh you down.
  • 00:19:59.100 --> 00:20:01.220
  • All right, so now we understand from the anatomy of life that
  • 00:20:01.230 --> 00:20:06.160
  • I've been teaching you that if depression is a feeling that
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:11.100
  • comes from thoughts that weigh you down,
  • 00:20:11.110 --> 00:20:15.050
  • now we're gonna be able to diagnose it
  • 00:20:15.060 --> 00:20:16.180
  • spiritually a lot better, why?
  • 00:20:16.190 --> 00:20:19.020
  • Because whatever you expose yourself to is gonna produce
  • 00:20:19.030 --> 00:20:21.190
  • the way you think.
  • 00:20:21.200 --> 00:20:23.180
  • Whatever you think about is gonna produce how you feel.
  • 00:20:23.190 --> 00:20:27.130
  • So however you feel came as a result of what you've been
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:33.150
  • thinking about, came as a result of what
  • 00:20:33.160 --> 00:20:36.200
  • you've been exposing yourself to.
  • 00:20:36.210 --> 00:20:39.040
  • So ultimately, if I wanna deal with how I feel,
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:41.170
  • I gotta deal with what I'm exposing myself to because
  • 00:20:41.180 --> 00:20:45.010
  • whatever I'm exposing myself to is producing the way I think and
  • 00:20:45.020 --> 00:20:48.090
  • whatever I think is producing the way I feel.
  • 00:20:48.100 --> 00:20:51.070
  • Now, somebody says, "Well, why do I need to talk about
  • 00:20:51.080 --> 00:20:53.150
  • depression and deal with that?"
  • 00:20:53.160 --> 00:20:54.260
  • 'Cause you gotta deal with how you feel.
  • 00:20:54.270 --> 00:20:56.100
  • Because if you don't deal with how you feel,
  • 00:20:56.110 --> 00:20:58.140
  • your exposure produces your thinking,
  • 00:20:58.150 --> 00:21:00.180
  • your thinking produces how you feel.
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:02.290
  • How you feel now will now determine your decisions.
  • 00:21:03.000 --> 00:21:08.040
  • And you don't wanna make decisions from
  • 00:21:08.050 --> 00:21:09.290
  • negative feelings.
  • 00:21:10.000 --> 00:21:12.080
  • Your negative decisions is now gonna produce
  • 00:21:12.090 --> 00:21:14.230
  • the actions that you take.
  • 00:21:14.240 --> 00:21:17.120
  • Now you gonna be doing things from negative decisions that
  • 00:21:17.130 --> 00:21:20.060
  • came from negative emotions that came from negative thinking that
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:23.120
  • came from negative exposure.
  • 00:21:23.130 --> 00:21:25.140
  • You are now acting out on those negative decisions.
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:32.020
  • Those decisions produce your actions,
  • 00:21:32.030 --> 00:21:33.200
  • your actions produce your habits.
  • 00:21:33.210 --> 00:21:37.090
  • You know, we create habits and then those habits turn right
  • 00:21:37.100 --> 00:21:41.100
  • around and create us.
  • 00:21:41.110 --> 00:21:44.160
  • We create habits, then those habits create what?
  • 00:21:44.170 --> 00:21:48.090
  • Character, and the character brings you to the destination.
  • 00:21:48.100 --> 00:21:52.280
  • So where you are this morning is not a mistake.
  • 00:21:52.290 --> 00:21:57.060
  • Where you are this morning happened all the way back.
  • 00:21:57.070 --> 00:22:00.210
  • It started with what have I been exposing myself to.
  • 00:22:00.220 --> 00:22:03.190
  • What are you exposing yourself to?
  • 00:22:03.200 --> 00:22:05.110
  • What are you looking at every day?
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:07.080
  • What are you listening to all the time?
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:08.190
  • What are you talking about all--what's the
  • 00:22:08.200 --> 00:22:10.020
  • exposure of your life?
  • 00:22:10.030 --> 00:22:11.130
  • If I--if you were to invite me into your life and,
  • 00:22:11.140 --> 00:22:13.120
  • you know, and I'm just like a fly on the wall,
  • 00:22:13.130 --> 00:22:16.010
  • what would I see that you're exposing yourself to?
  • 00:22:16.020 --> 00:22:19.200
  • And people don't even wanna pay attention to that.
  • 00:22:19.210 --> 00:22:22.160
  • You got this jacked-up, raggedy, negative friend that you hang
  • 00:22:22.170 --> 00:22:25.250
  • around 'cause you ain't got nobody else to hang around with
  • 00:22:25.260 --> 00:22:28.100
  • and they're exposing you to all of their drama and you wonder
  • 00:22:28.110 --> 00:22:31.110
  • why you think the way you think.
  • 00:22:31.120 --> 00:22:36.090
  • We really need to rethink our definition of friendship.
  • 00:22:36.100 --> 00:22:40.030
  • A friend sticketh closer than a brother.
  • 00:22:40.040 --> 00:22:42.180
  • What have you done for me lately to call yourself my friend?
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:52.190
  • Some of y'all looking at me...
  • 00:22:55.020 --> 00:23:04.270
  • What do you expose yourself to?
  • 00:23:04.280 --> 00:23:08.150
  • That's creating my thinking.
  • 00:23:08.160 --> 00:23:11.170
  • You've got to value yourself enough to dismiss some people
  • 00:23:11.180 --> 00:23:16.220
  • from your life because if it costs you your peace, what?
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:25.040
  • It's too expensive and you cannot, you cannot,
  • 00:23:25.050 --> 00:23:30.060
  • you cannot spend your peace on other people's drama.
  • 00:23:30.070 --> 00:23:37.130
  • 'Cause you scared that's the only friend you'll ever have.
  • 00:23:37.140 --> 00:23:39.130
  • You're an awesome person.
  • 00:23:39.140 --> 00:23:41.130
  • God's got somebody that's gonna be awesome in your life.
  • 00:23:41.140 --> 00:23:46.230
  • You don't have to put up with somebody who don't wanna change,
  • 00:23:46.240 --> 00:23:49.140
  • who just wanna dump drama in your life.
  • 00:23:49.150 --> 00:23:51.100
  • When you look on the phone and you see 'em calling,
  • 00:23:51.110 --> 00:23:53.240
  • you have to--only reason you answer 'cause you bored.
  • 00:23:53.250 --> 00:24:02.180
  • These are practical things you can do and you won't do it and
