  • Taffi Dollar: When we latch onto thinking low and believing
  • 00:00:09.155 --> 00:00:14.194
  • less, believing the fears,believing negativity, going by
  • 00:00:14.227 --> 00:00:20.433

  • happened up to this point.
  • 00:00:26.005 --> 00:00:28.875
  • Maybe we hadn't seen anyone inour family experience it, so we
  • 00:00:28.908 --> 00:00:31.945
  • get older and we start thinking,"Well, you know, this is gonna
  • 00:00:31.978 --> 00:00:35.115

  • 00:00:35.148 --> 00:00:38.418
  • But you know what?

  • Taffi: There are many influencesin the world that compete for
  • 00:02:21.221 --> 00:02:23.690
  • our attention.
  • 00:02:23.723 --> 00:02:26.826
  • The cares of this world, theBible says, will choke out
  • 00:02:26.859 --> 00:02:31.331
  • the Word.
  • 00:02:31.364 --> 00:02:34.601
  • The cares, the anxiety, thefears, all the things that are
  • 00:02:34.634 --> 00:02:39.072
  • going on around us, these thingshave the ability to influence
  • 00:02:39.105 --> 00:02:43.843
  • our minds, influence ourthoughts, to overcome us, to
  • 00:02:43.876 --> 00:02:48.348
  • overwhelm us.
  • 00:02:48.381 --> 00:02:51.084
  • But you know what?
  • 00:02:51.117 --> 00:02:54.120
  • We cannot allow it to crowd outand to keep the Word of God from
  • 00:02:54.153 --> 00:02:56.656
  • being harvested and bringingforth fruit in our lives.
  • 00:02:56.689 --> 00:03:03.930
  • I understand how importantit is, you know, with so many
  • 00:03:03.963 --> 00:03:08.034
  • things that are goingon, but you know what?
  • 00:03:08.067 --> 00:03:10.803
  • Let your steps beordered by the Lord.
  • 00:03:10.837 --> 00:03:13.640
  • And so, he will direct you, andhe will tell you what to do when
  • 00:03:13.673 --> 00:03:18.177
  • you should do it, so we shouldsoak up the Word of God and what
  • 00:03:18.211 --> 00:03:22.148
  • God says to us.
  • 00:03:22.181 --> 00:03:24.817
  • We trust him, and we depositthe Word of God in our hearts.
  • 00:03:24.851 --> 00:03:29.055
  • We deposit the Word of God inour lives to prepare us, as I
  • 00:03:29.088 --> 00:03:32.992
  • mentioned, for our future.
  • 00:03:33.026 --> 00:03:35.662
  • See, Mary was preparing herselffor a time that she didn't even
  • 00:03:35.695 --> 00:03:41.234
  • know was going to take place, ofher brother transitioning on and
  • 00:03:41.267 --> 00:03:44.904
  • passing on.
  • 00:03:44.937 --> 00:03:46.973
  • But, you know, Jesus did, Goddid, and that's why the Word of
  • 00:03:47.006 --> 00:03:50.510
  • God makes such a difference whenwe deposit it in our life, and
  • 00:03:50.543 --> 00:03:54.514
  • then we're equipped.
  • 00:03:54.547 --> 00:03:56.783
  • We're having the knowledge andthe wisdom to deal with things
  • 00:03:56.816 --> 00:03:59.952
  • that lie ahead.
  • 00:03:59.986 --> 00:04:02.855
  • But you know what?
  • 00:04:02.889 --> 00:04:05.158
  • I'm sure Mary was prepared, butMartha probably, on the other
  • 00:04:05.191 --> 00:04:08.194
  • hand, probably came apart likea $2 suitcase because she wasn't
  • 00:04:08.227 --> 00:04:12.098
  • prepared, because she was morefocused on everything else
  • 00:04:12.131 --> 00:04:17.370
  • except depositing theWord of God in her heart.
  • 00:04:17.403 --> 00:04:23.076
  • And so, when trials and stormsand situations come up, we
  • 00:04:23.109 --> 00:04:28.681
  • come apart.
  • 00:04:28.715 --> 00:04:31.217
  • We lose it because we haven'tlaid the Word of God up in our
  • 00:04:31.250 --> 00:04:36.422
  • heart and allowed it to dowhat is necessary in our lives.
  • 00:04:36.456 --> 00:04:45.398
  • Let's look at acouple examples here.
  • 00:04:45.431 --> 00:04:49.869
  • Luke chapter 5, verse 17.
  • 00:04:49.902 --> 00:04:52.972
  • Let's look at this guy who wasdetermined to get into the place
  • 00:04:53.005 --> 00:05:00.446
  • where Jesus was.
  • 00:05:00.480 --> 00:05:03.916
  • I love the tenacity.
  • 00:05:03.950 --> 00:05:06.519
  • You know, it's gonna take sometenacity to be in the right
  • 00:05:06.552 --> 00:05:08.454
  • place at the right time, becausethe enemy is gonna do everything
  • 00:05:08.488 --> 00:05:10.957
  • that he can to keep us fromhearing from God, keep us from
  • 00:05:10.990 --> 00:05:15.862
  • knowing God's voice andbelieving that where we are is
  • 00:05:15.895 --> 00:05:22.068
  • where God wants us to be.
  • 00:05:22.101 --> 00:05:24.570
  • And so, he specializes inconfusion and causing one to
  • 00:05:24.604 --> 00:05:28.808
  • think that these things areimpossible with God, and that
  • 00:05:28.841 --> 00:05:35.047
  • we'll never see the light ofday, so we have to trust God and
  • 00:05:35.081 --> 00:05:39.118
  • get rid of the fear andopen ourselves up to
  • 00:05:39.152 --> 00:05:42.989
  • God's possibilities.
  • 00:05:43.022 --> 00:05:46.058
  • These things that God saysare possible through his Word.
  • 00:05:46.092 --> 00:05:49.495
  • We should begin to release ourfaith and know that all things
  • 00:05:49.529 --> 00:05:54.634
  • are possible through him, andto open ourselves up to those,
  • 00:05:54.667 --> 00:05:59.205
  • quote, unquote,"impossibilities," because we
  • 00:05:59.238 --> 00:06:00.773
  • know that they're possibleagain through God.
  • 00:06:00.807 --> 00:06:04.877
  • Now, look at thisin Luke 5:17
  • 00:06:04.911 --> 00:06:12.885
  • in The Message translation.
  • 00:06:12.919 --> 00:06:14.954
  • It says, "One day as he wasteaching, the Pharisees and
  • 00:06:14.987 --> 00:06:17.356
  • religion teacherswere sitting around.
  • 00:06:17.390 --> 00:06:19.992
  • They had come from nearly everyvillage in Galilee and Judea,
  • 00:06:20.026 --> 00:06:22.662
  • even as far away asJerusalem, to be there."
  • 00:06:22.695 --> 00:06:26.466
  • Look at "there."
  • 00:06:26.499 --> 00:06:28.835
  • They knew the importance ofwhere they were needing to be,
  • 00:06:28.868 --> 00:06:33.172
  • and that's thething, child of God.
  • 00:06:33.206 --> 00:06:35.575
  • Even though you may besheltering in, maybe you're, you
  • 00:06:35.608 --> 00:06:38.511
  • know, in a remote place whereyou're not able to be as mobile
  • 00:06:38.544 --> 00:06:41.614
  • as you would like to be, knowwhere you're supposed to be.
  • 00:06:41.647 --> 00:06:46.686
  • Tune into that computer.
  • 00:06:46.719 --> 00:06:49.489
  • Get that audio goingin your spirit.
  • 00:06:49.522 --> 00:06:53.226
  • Get there, just like God spoketo Elijah, because once you get
  • 00:06:53.259 --> 00:06:57.396
  • to that brook, to that placethat God wants you to be, all of
  • 00:06:57.430 --> 00:07:01.567
  • your needs will be met.
  • 00:07:01.601 --> 00:07:04.136
  • And so, here they said that"they had come from nearly every
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:09.141
  • village in Galilee and Judea,even as far away as Jerusalem,
  • 00:07:09.175 --> 00:07:16.782
  • to be," where?
  • 00:07:16.816 --> 00:07:19.719
  • "There," to be there.
  • 00:07:19.752 --> 00:07:24.323
  • Child of God, you'vegotta be there.
  • 00:07:24.357 --> 00:07:27.793
  • Don't be pulled away.
  • 00:07:27.827 --> 00:07:30.096
  • "Yeah, you know, my favoriteshow is coming on right now."
  • 00:07:30.129 --> 00:07:32.532
  • No.
  • 00:07:32.565 --> 00:07:35.968
  • What is it thatyou gotta deposit?
  • 00:07:36.002 --> 00:07:39.205
  • Because there are things thatGod wants to prepare you for.
  • 00:07:39.238 --> 00:07:42.542
  • God's getting you ready.
  • 00:07:42.575 --> 00:07:45.278
  • He wants you equippedfor your assignment.
  • 00:07:45.311 --> 00:07:47.747
  • He wants you to know that you'vebeen qualified, and you're
  • 00:07:47.780 --> 00:07:50.416
  • equipped, and you have the powerand the unction of the Holy
  • 00:07:50.449 --> 00:07:54.353
  • Ghost to be able to do so.
  • 00:07:54.387 --> 00:07:56.622
  • We've gotta be there.
  • 00:07:56.656 --> 00:07:58.791
  • To be there.
  • 00:07:58.824 --> 00:08:00.860
  • People came from all over.
  • 00:08:00.893 --> 00:08:03.329
  • And so, you know, in this dayand time it's so casual
  • 00:08:03.362 --> 00:08:05.765
  • and lackadaisical.
  • 00:08:05.798 --> 00:08:07.967
  • Oh, I can just bewherever, you know?
  • 00:08:08.000 --> 00:08:10.202
  • It doesn't really matter.
  • 00:08:10.236 --> 00:08:12.338
  • I just wanna do my own thing,and I just wanna take it as it
  • 00:08:12.371 --> 00:08:15.308
  • comes, and I just--you know, itdoesn't really matter where
  • 00:08:15.341 --> 00:08:18.844
  • I am.
  • 00:08:18.878 --> 00:08:21.147
  • No, this is so important, thatwe understand and we see the
  • 00:08:21.180 --> 00:08:25.785
  • need that they sawof being there.
  • 00:08:25.818 --> 00:08:30.723
  • And it says here, "The healingpower of God was on him."
  • 00:08:30.756 --> 00:08:39.131
  • I'm telling you when you're inneed of a healing and you're in
  • 00:08:39.165 --> 00:08:46.172
  • need of being relieved of painand discomfort in your body and
  • 00:08:46.205 --> 00:08:50.076
  • this Word is able to provideit, I don't know about you.
  • 00:08:50.109 --> 00:08:53.012
  • I wanna be right there in theWord of God, meditating on it,
  • 00:08:53.045 --> 00:08:56.215
  • believing it, confessing it,standing on it, declaring faith
  • 00:08:56.248 --> 00:08:59.118
  • in the Word of God.
  • 00:08:59.151 --> 00:09:03.189
  • So, the healing power of God wasthere, and it was on Jesus, to
  • 00:09:03.222 --> 00:09:07.860
  • the point here in verse 18 itsays, "Some men carried away--"
  • 00:09:07.893 --> 00:09:13.866
  • Excuse me.
  • 00:09:13.899 --> 00:09:16.002
  • "Some men arrived carryinga paraplegic on a stretcher.
  • 00:09:16.035 --> 00:09:20.306
  • They were looking for a way toget into the house and set him
  • 00:09:20.339 --> 00:09:26.212
  • before Jesus.
  • 00:09:26.245 --> 00:09:30.082
  • When they couldn't find a way inbecause of the crowd, they went
  • 00:09:30.116 --> 00:09:38.290
  • up on the roof--"
  • 00:09:38.324 --> 00:09:41.494
  • Now, some of us would'vesaid, "Too crowded.
  • 00:09:41.527 --> 00:09:47.099
  • I'm out, see you later, sa-ra.
  • 00:09:47.133 --> 00:09:52.038
  • I don't do crowds."
  • 00:09:52.071 --> 00:09:53.839
  • But you know what?
  • 00:09:53.873 --> 00:09:55.808
  • The crowds didn't move this guy.
  • 00:09:55.841 --> 00:09:59.011
  • He wasn't fazed.
  • 00:09:59.045 --> 00:10:01.514
  • He didn't say, "You know what?
  • 00:10:01.547 --> 00:10:03.683
  • I'll come back ina couple hours."
  • 00:10:03.716 --> 00:10:06.385
  • No.
  • 00:10:06.419 --> 00:10:08.120
  • You know what he did?
  • 00:10:08.154 --> 00:10:10.356
  • They went up on the roof.
  • 00:10:10.389 --> 00:10:12.525
  • You know why?
  • 00:10:12.558 --> 00:10:14.794
  • Because God's favor was at hand,him being relieved of pain, him
  • 00:10:14.827 --> 00:10:20.132
  • being unable to walk.
  • 00:10:20.166 --> 00:10:23.135
  • He says, "I'm going to go onthe roof," so we have to ask
  • 00:10:23.169 --> 00:10:26.439
  • ourselves how desperate arewe for the presence of God?
  • 00:10:26.472 --> 00:10:33.379
  • How desperate are we fora move of God in our life?
  • 00:10:33.412 --> 00:10:39.618
  • Or are we willing to justcomplain and say, "They should
  • 00:10:39.652 --> 00:10:43.122
  • have gotten a bigger place.
  • 00:10:43.155 --> 00:10:45.524
  • They should have--youknow, this is terrible.
  • 00:10:45.558 --> 00:10:48.260
  • That everybody can'tget laid hands on.
  • 00:10:48.294 --> 00:10:50.963
  • Everybody can'tget ministered to.
  • 00:10:50.996 --> 00:10:52.965
  • This is terrible."
  • 00:10:52.998 --> 00:10:55.534
  • They didn't complain.
  • 00:10:55.568 --> 00:10:57.803
  • You know what they did?
  • 00:10:57.837 --> 00:11:00.272
  • They went up on the roof,they went up on the roof.
  • 00:11:00.306 --> 00:11:03.275
  • You know why?
  • 00:11:03.309 --> 00:11:04.744
  • Because they believed that thatwas the place for them to be,
  • 00:11:04.777 --> 00:11:09.615
  • and they were not going to allowobstacles and circumstances to
  • 00:11:09.648 --> 00:11:16.489
  • get in their way.
  • 00:11:16.522 --> 00:11:20.192
  • Who knows if they had aladder to get up on the roof?
  • 00:11:20.226 --> 00:11:23.496
  • That they just kinda stoodon each other's shoulders.
  • 00:11:23.529 --> 00:11:26.799
  • "Hey, man, we're just gonna getin here however we can get in
  • 00:11:26.832 --> 00:11:29.568
  • here," because the power ofGod is more important than
  • 00:11:29.602 --> 00:11:37.710
  • everything else of being at thewrong place at the wrong time.
  • 00:11:37.743 --> 00:11:45.017
  • So, we have to make up in ourminds when we're in the right
  • 00:11:45.050 --> 00:11:49.321
  • place at the right time thefavor of God will show up and
  • 00:11:49.355 --> 00:11:53.826
  • will show out in our lives,and the glory of God will be
  • 00:11:53.859 --> 00:11:57.963
  • revealed and cause us to beelevated and to experience his
  • 00:11:57.997 --> 00:12:05.337
  • goodness on our lives.
  • 00:12:05.371 --> 00:12:10.042
  • So, the Scripture says that theycouldn't find a way in because
  • 00:12:10.075 --> 00:12:15.080
  • of the crowd.
  • 00:12:15.114 --> 00:12:19.585
  • And, you know, theywent up on the roof,
  • 00:12:19.618 --> 00:12:25.124
  • removed some tiles, and let himdown in the middle of everyone.
  • 00:12:25.157 --> 00:12:34.633
  • Went into this person's houseand just started taking over.
  • 00:12:34.667 --> 00:12:41.006
  • Man, who do you think you are?
  • 00:12:41.040 --> 00:12:43.609
  • You don't take tilesout of my roof.
  • 00:12:43.642 --> 00:12:47.313
  • Did you ask totake the tiles out?
  • 00:12:47.346 --> 00:12:50.516
  • No, they were desperate.
  • 00:12:50.549 --> 00:12:54.053
  • They were on a mission.
  • 00:12:54.086 --> 00:12:56.388
  • They had a goal, they had aplan, they had a purpose, and so
  • 00:12:56.422 --> 00:13:00.626
  • they were removing the tiles.
  • 00:13:00.659 --> 00:13:05.364
  • And they were letting him downin the middle of everyone, right
  • 00:13:05.397 --> 00:13:13.772
  • in front of Jesus.
  • 00:13:13.806 --> 00:13:18.410
  • And so, I'm sure the people whowere inside are thinking, "Okay,
  • 00:13:18.444 --> 00:13:21.247
  • who is this guy?"
  • 00:13:21.280 --> 00:13:24.383
  • It's all of us in here, and thenyou see somebody come out of the
  • 00:13:24.416 --> 00:13:27.219
  • ceiling, straight down to thefloor, and you're thinking,
  • 00:13:27.253 --> 00:13:31.090
  • "Okay, I mean, did anybody askhow long I've been
  • 00:13:31.123 --> 00:13:35.794
  • standing here?"
  • 00:13:35.828 --> 00:13:38.564
  • But you know what?
  • 00:13:38.597 --> 00:13:41.667
  • When you're desperate you'll putyour faith out, and you'll be
  • 00:13:41.700 --> 00:13:44.770
  • willing, because you knowthat your life is on the line.
  • 00:13:44.803 --> 00:13:48.807
  • You know what thepromises have for you.
  • 00:13:48.841 --> 00:13:52.411
  • And so, you know, you are in theposition for your expectation to
  • 00:13:52.444 --> 00:13:58.284
  • be filled.
  • 00:13:58.317 --> 00:14:01.420
  • And so, it says, "They let himdown in the middle of everyone,
  • 00:14:01.453 --> 00:14:05.424
  • right in front of Jesus.
  • 00:14:05.457 --> 00:14:09.595
  • Impressed by their bold belief,he said, 'Friend, I forgive
  • 00:14:09.628 --> 00:14:17.236
  • your sins.'
  • 00:14:17.269 --> 00:14:20.072
  • That set the religion scholarsand Pharisees buzzing.
  • 00:14:20.105 --> 00:14:27.947
  • 'Who does he think he is?
  • 00:14:27.980 --> 00:14:31.183
  • That's blasphemous talk!
  • 00:14:31.216 --> 00:14:34.653
  • God and only Godcan forgive sins.'
  • 00:14:34.687 --> 00:14:39.992
  • Jesus knew exactly what theywere thinking and said, 'Why all
  • 00:14:40.025 --> 00:14:43.162
  • this gossipy whispering?'"
  • 00:14:43.195 --> 00:14:47.199
  • 'Cause people are gonna have aproblem with you doing what you
  • 00:14:47.232 --> 00:14:50.502
  • believe God isleading you to do.
  • 00:14:50.536 --> 00:14:54.306
  • They gossiped, they whispered,they were backbiting.
  • 00:14:54.340 --> 00:14:57.843
  • "Who does he think he is?
  • 00:14:57.876 --> 00:14:59.645
  • We've been here longer than him.
  • 00:14:59.678 --> 00:15:01.714
  • All of a sudden, he just thinkshe can jump in the front of the
  • 00:15:01.747 --> 00:15:03.983
  • line and get in front of Jesus."
  • 00:15:04.016 --> 00:15:08.253
  • And so, he says, "'Which issimpler: to say "I forgive your
  • 00:15:08.287 --> 00:15:11.790
  • sins," or say "Get upand start walking"?
  • 00:15:11.824 --> 00:15:16.061
  • Well, just so it's clearthat I'm the Son of Man and
  • 00:15:16.095 --> 00:15:19.531
  • authorized to doeither, or both.'
  • 00:15:19.565 --> 00:15:22.935
  • He now spoke directly tothe paraplegic: 'Get up.
  • 00:15:22.968 --> 00:15:28.273
  • Take your bedroll and go home.'
  • 00:15:28.307 --> 00:15:36.348
  • Without a moment's hesitation,he did it--got up, took his
  • 00:15:36.382 --> 00:15:44.590
  • blanket, andleft for home,
  • 00:15:44.623 --> 00:15:49.928
  • giving glory toGod all the way.
  • 00:15:49.962 --> 00:15:55.501
  • The people rubbed their eyes,stunned--and then also gave
  • 00:15:55.534 --> 00:16:02.074
  • their glory to God.
  • 00:16:02.107 --> 00:16:06.412
  • Awestruck, they said,'We've never seen
  • 00:16:06.445 --> 00:16:10.849
  • anything like that!'"
  • 00:16:10.883 --> 00:16:16.722
  • And you knowwhat, child of God?
  • 00:16:16.755 --> 00:16:19.725
  • Until we're willing to step outinto that place to believe God
  • 00:16:19.758 --> 00:16:22.861
  • for the impossible, we're gonnabe contained with everybody else
  • 00:16:22.895 --> 00:16:29.735
  • complaining, fussing,cantankerous, irritated,
  • 00:16:29.768 --> 00:16:39.078
  • agitated, contentious.
  • 00:16:39.111 --> 00:16:42.981
  • We're gonna be right in the sameboat of everybody else, 'cause
  • 00:16:43.015 --> 00:16:46.885
  • you gotta remember everybody inNoah's time, they weren't all,
  • 00:16:46.919 --> 00:16:50.756
  • you know, trying tohelp Noah build the ark.
  • 00:16:50.789 --> 00:16:54.960
  • They thought Noah was a fool tobe out there building an ark.
  • 00:16:54.993 --> 00:16:59.665
  • "Noah, it's not acloud in the sky.
  • 00:16:59.698 --> 00:17:03.669
  • It's not a drop of rain in view.
  • 00:17:03.702 --> 00:17:06.939
  • There is no forecast.
  • 00:17:06.972 --> 00:17:09.575
  • There is no meteorologist who'ssaying that, you know, there is
  • 00:17:09.608 --> 00:17:12.811
  • a flood coming.
  • 00:17:12.845 --> 00:17:15.414
  • Man, you are a nut to beout here building this ark."
  • 00:17:15.447 --> 00:17:20.085
  • And so, people aren't going tounderstand the importance of you
  • 00:17:20.119 --> 00:17:24.590
  • obeying God and trusting Godwith your life and believing God
  • 00:17:24.623 --> 00:17:31.296
  • to meet you atyour point of need.
  • 00:17:31.330 --> 00:17:37.002
  • Look over--these areso many examples here.
  • 00:17:37.035 --> 00:17:41.340
  • We're gonna look at Mark chapter5 and maybe we'll look at John
  • 00:17:41.373 --> 00:17:45.811
  • if we have time, but let'slook at Mark 5, verse 25.
  • 00:17:45.844 --> 00:17:55.354
  • Hopefully, this is kindacreating a picture for you and
  • 00:17:55.387 --> 00:17:58.590
  • an urgency to allow God to dowhat he wants to do in your
  • 00:17:58.624 --> 00:18:07.065
  • life, and to not give yourselfto limiting him like the
  • 00:18:07.099 --> 00:18:15.240
  • children of Israel did.
  • 00:18:15.274 --> 00:18:18.277
  • They limited God, and as aresult they did not enter into
  • 00:18:18.310 --> 00:18:22.748
  • the Promised Land.
  • 00:18:22.781 --> 00:18:25.951
  • They did not because of, youknow, grumbling and murmuring.
  • 00:18:25.984 --> 00:18:32.257
  • The journey was supposed tohave been very short, but it was
  • 00:18:32.291 --> 00:18:35.894
  • extended for years.
  • 00:18:35.928 --> 00:18:39.198
  • It was supposed to have been,now, understand, if I remember
  • 00:18:39.231 --> 00:18:41.667
  • correctly, 11-day journey.
  • 00:18:41.700 --> 00:18:43.735
  • It ended up being, you know, 40years or something crazy, but,
  • 00:18:43.769 --> 00:18:46.104
  • you know, that's what happensin our life when we latch on to
  • 00:18:46.138 --> 00:18:51.777
  • thinking low and believing less,believing the fears, believing
  • 00:18:51.810 --> 00:18:58.850
  • negativity, going by the outwardcircumstances, going by the
  • 00:18:58.884 --> 00:19:05.224
  • tradition of what'shappened up to this point.
  • 00:19:05.257 --> 00:19:09.161
  • Maybe we hadn't seen anyone inour family experience it, so we
  • 00:19:09.194 --> 00:19:13.398
  • get older and we start thinking,"Well, you know, this is gonna
  • 00:19:13.432 --> 00:19:16.401
  • happen, and I might as welljust throw in the towel, too."
  • 00:19:16.435 --> 00:19:20.105
  • But you know what?
  • 00:19:20.138 --> 00:19:22.274
  • You have the promises of God,and God's words are true.
  • 00:19:22.307 --> 00:19:26.011
  • And it's the enemy that wants tojust pound on your mind, cause
  • 00:19:26.044 --> 00:19:30.182
  • you to give up hope and toattack your mentality, because
  • 00:19:30.215 --> 00:19:38.023
  • he knows that if the Word of Godcan get deposited in our life,
  • 00:19:38.056 --> 00:19:43.195
  • that it will cause a revelation,and that it will cause an
  • 00:19:43.228 --> 00:19:46.932
  • explosion of goodand manifestation.
  • 00:19:46.965 --> 00:19:52.004
  • So, here in verse 25 thisis a familiar passage.
  • 00:19:52.037 --> 00:19:58.277
  • This is the woman with the issueof blood, and in light of what
  • 00:19:58.310 --> 00:20:02.581
  • we're talking about today I wantus to look at her life, and I
  • 00:20:02.614 --> 00:20:06.885
  • believe it will certainly speakunto us, and I'm praying that it
  • 00:20:06.918 --> 00:20:12.924
  • will speak unto you.
  • 00:20:12.958 --> 00:20:17.162
  • Well, "A woman who had suffereda condition of hemorrhaging for
  • 00:20:17.195 --> 00:20:21.233
  • twelve years--a long successionof physicians had treated her,
  • 00:20:21.266 --> 00:20:27.339
  • and treated her badly--"
  • 00:20:27.372 --> 00:20:32.411
  • So, you know, she didn't havemuch success with doctors.
  • 00:20:32.444 --> 00:20:36.581
  • She could have said, "You know,maybe God just wants me to
  • 00:20:36.615 --> 00:20:40.052
  • continue to hemorrhage, andso I'm just gonna stay in
  • 00:20:40.085 --> 00:20:43.422
  • this place."
  • 00:20:43.455 --> 00:20:45.824
  • No, regardless of her treatmentwith previous physicians and how
  • 00:20:45.857 --> 00:20:50.796
  • they treated her, you know what?
  • 00:20:50.829 --> 00:20:54.099
  • She chose to pursue God's bestfor her life, so I challenge you
  • 00:20:54.132 --> 00:21:00.639
  • today that regardless of maybethe bad apples or the bad
  • 00:21:00.672 --> 00:21:04.443
  • doctors or bad relationships orbad, you know, purchases or bad
  • 00:21:04.476 --> 00:21:08.747
  • business deals or bad situationsdon't let that stop you.
  • 00:21:08.780 --> 00:21:14.052
  • That's not the end.
  • 00:21:14.086 --> 00:21:17.289
  • Allow that to be part of yourtestimony and keep pressing
  • 00:21:17.322 --> 00:21:21.426
  • forward, be patient,be consistent, endure.
  • 00:21:21.460 --> 00:21:26.398
  • Continue to move forward.
  • 00:21:26.431 --> 00:21:28.066
  • Believe God, trust God,just like she did.
  • 00:21:28.100 --> 00:21:33.638
  • "Taking all her money andleaving her worse off
  • 00:21:33.672 --> 00:21:36.875
  • than before--"
  • 00:21:36.908 --> 00:21:39.478
  • So, she had some bad doctors.
  • 00:21:39.511 --> 00:21:42.347
  • Maybe, you know, they weremalpracticing, or maybe they
  • 00:21:42.381 --> 00:21:46.518
  • were just, you know, notvery knowledgeable doctors.
  • 00:21:46.551 --> 00:21:50.555
  • Whatever the case was, theScripture says they left her off
  • 00:21:50.589 --> 00:21:53.725
  • worse than what she was before.
  • 00:21:53.759 --> 00:21:57.829
  • But you know what?
  • 00:21:57.863 --> 00:22:00.198
  • She heard about Jesus.
  • 00:22:00.232 --> 00:22:02.434
  • Thank God.
  • 00:22:02.467 --> 00:22:05.270
  • Scripture says she heard aboutJesus, and I'm sure she probably
  • 00:22:05.303 --> 00:22:07.973
  • thought, "There is a possibilitythat maybe this issue in my life
  • 00:22:08.006 --> 00:22:16.481
  • can be dealt with.
  • 00:22:16.515 --> 00:22:19.317
  • Perhaps I can be made whole.
  • 00:22:19.351 --> 00:22:23.355
  • Perhaps my circumstance and mysituation can be turned right
  • 00:22:23.388 --> 00:22:27.726
  • side up.
  • 00:22:27.759 --> 00:22:31.163
  • Maybe it could happen for me,just like I am hearing it is
  • 00:22:31.196 --> 00:22:35.333
  • happening for other people.
  • 00:22:35.367 --> 00:22:38.937
  • Just so being maybe this is myday to receive the free favors
  • 00:22:38.970 --> 00:22:45.544
  • of God, the favors thatprofusely and lavishly abound."
  • 00:22:45.577 --> 00:22:53.952
  • She heard about Jesus, and wehave the opportunity to hear and
  • 00:22:53.985 --> 00:23:01.159
  • to read about Jesus, too.
  • 00:23:01.193 --> 00:23:05.497
  • But you have to make up in yourmind and say, "Well, you know,
  • 00:23:05.530 --> 00:23:08.533
  • it's outdated.
  • 00:23:08.567 --> 00:23:11.403
  • It's irrelevant.
  • 00:23:11.436 --> 00:23:13.839
  • It's not happening like it didback in Jesus's day, and, you
  • 00:23:13.872 --> 00:23:16.508
  • know, that was centuries ago,and nobody is getting
  • 00:23:16.541 --> 00:23:19.044
  • healed anymore.
  • 00:23:19.077 --> 00:23:21.246
  • Nobody is getting delivered.
  • 00:23:21.279 --> 00:23:23.682
  • Nobody is, you know,experience abundance."
  • 00:23:23.715 --> 00:23:26.451
  • We can make all the excuses inthe world, or we can be like
  • 00:23:26.485 --> 00:23:29.588
