  • announcer: Coming up nexton "Changing Your World."
  • 00:00:05.485 --> 00:00:07.520
  • Taffi Dollar: Being where Godwants us to be is to recognize
  • 00:00:08.855 --> 00:00:11.324
  • that our steps haveto be ordered by him.
  • 00:00:11.357 --> 00:00:14.327
  • You have to make up in your mindthat "I'm yielding my life over
  • 00:00:14.360 --> 00:00:16.863
  • to him, what it is that he wantsme to do, where he wants me
  • 00:00:16.896 --> 00:00:21.734
  • to go."
  • 00:00:21.768 --> 00:00:24.104
  • If he says to go tothe left, I turn left.
  • 00:00:24.137 --> 00:00:26.139
  • He says, "Go to theright,' I turn right.
  • 00:00:26.172 --> 00:00:28.174
  • If he says to moveforward, I move forward.
  • 00:00:28.208 --> 00:00:30.844
  • My steps areordered by the Lord.

  • Taffi: When we are in theposition and we're in the place
  • 00:01:49.189 --> 00:01:52.192
  • where God wants us to be, we'llbegin to experience his favor on
  • 00:01:52.225 --> 00:01:58.331
  • our life.
  • 00:01:58.364 --> 00:02:01.034
  • We'll receive him pouring outhis goodness on our life, and so
  • 00:02:01.067 --> 00:02:03.903
  • that's what this teaching isall about, so that we can open
  • 00:02:03.937 --> 00:02:06.606
  • ourselves up toGod's possibilities.
  • 00:02:06.639 --> 00:02:10.510
  • That we can see the fact thatall things are possible
  • 00:02:10.543 --> 00:02:14.948
  • through God.
  • 00:02:14.981 --> 00:02:17.317
  • Men see things asbeing impossible.
  • 00:02:17.350 --> 00:02:20.820
  • You know, the guy who had comeinto the roof and took the tiles
  • 00:02:20.853 --> 00:02:24.224
  • off and as a resulthe was healed.
  • 00:02:24.257 --> 00:02:29.195
  • The one who was laying at thepool, and when Jesus came by and
  • 00:02:29.229 --> 00:02:33.166
  • he says, "Do you wanna be well?"
  • 00:02:33.199 --> 00:02:35.602
  • And he says, "Well, you know,nobody is here to put me in
  • 00:02:35.635 --> 00:02:37.570
  • the pool.
  • 00:02:37.604 --> 00:02:39.239
  • Nobody is able to help me."
  • 00:02:39.272 --> 00:02:41.174
  • And Jesus said,"Rise up and walk."
  • 00:02:41.207 --> 00:02:43.509
  • But you know what?
  • 00:02:43.543 --> 00:02:45.411
  • They were all inthe presence of God.
  • 00:02:45.445 --> 00:02:47.480
  • They were all in the presenceof Jesus, and you know
  • 00:02:47.513 --> 00:02:49.682
  • what happened?
  • 00:02:49.716 --> 00:02:51.417
  • Their lives were changed.
  • 00:02:51.451 --> 00:02:53.319
  • They were never the same.
  • 00:02:53.353 --> 00:02:55.255
  • The Samaritan woman who was atthe well, she was at the place
  • 00:02:55.288 --> 00:02:59.492
  • the noontime, which was thelesser busier time, and Jesus
  • 00:02:59.525 --> 00:03:05.498
  • decided to converse with her,and, as a result, he turned her
  • 00:03:05.531 --> 00:03:09.569
  • life upside down.
  • 00:03:09.602 --> 00:03:13.773
  • And so, it's so important thatwe understand when we have an
  • 00:03:13.806 --> 00:03:18.177
  • encounter with the Word and wehave an encounter with Jesus and
  • 00:03:18.211 --> 00:03:22.882
  • we get a revelation, I'm tellingyou we will never be the
  • 00:03:22.915 --> 00:03:28.688
  • same again.
  • 00:03:28.721 --> 00:03:31.491
  • So, I pray today that your lifeis never the same, and that
  • 00:03:31.524 --> 00:03:34.227
  • you'll experience what it meansto be at that specific brook
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:39.832
  • like Elijah was, whereGod spoke to him.
  • 00:03:39.866 --> 00:03:43.236
  • He said, "Elijah, go to acertain brook, and there will I
  • 00:03:43.269 --> 00:03:45.705
  • feed you, and therewill I sustain you."
  • 00:03:45.738 --> 00:03:48.741
  • So, there is a sustenance,there is a keeping, there is a
  • 00:03:48.775 --> 00:03:51.444
  • provision when we are where Godwants us to be, and we're at
  • 00:03:51.477 --> 00:03:57.517
  • that place where heis able to empower us.
  • 00:03:57.550 --> 00:04:03.189
  • You know, I'll never forget wewere having church service in
  • 00:04:03.222 --> 00:04:07.660
  • New York.
  • 00:04:07.694 --> 00:04:10.029
  • This was back in 2007.
  • 00:04:10.063 --> 00:04:12.899
  • Creflo was preaching, and Iwas sitting in the balcony.
  • 00:04:12.932 --> 00:04:15.468
  • And this was when we weremeeting at the Hilton and during
  • 00:04:15.501 --> 00:04:17.704
  • that time we would go from venueto venue for quite a bit of time
  • 00:04:17.737 --> 00:04:22.241
  • the first eight years, and sothis particular Saturday night
  • 00:04:22.275 --> 00:04:25.845
  • in Manhattan he was teachingand just line upon line, precept
  • 00:04:25.878 --> 00:04:32.118
  • upon precept.
  • 00:04:32.151 --> 00:04:35.355
  • It was so good, such a greatteaching, anointing that was
  • 00:04:35.388 --> 00:04:38.224
  • going on.
  • 00:04:38.257 --> 00:04:41.060
  • And as I was sitting in theback, and there were a couple
  • 00:04:41.094 --> 00:04:43.730
  • other ladies who were sittingback there with me, I heard the
  • 00:04:43.763 --> 00:04:46.933
  • Spirit of God say, "I'm callingyou now to minister to women in
  • 00:04:46.966 --> 00:04:50.636
  • prostitution, and I'm callingyou to minister to strippers."
  • 00:04:50.670 --> 00:04:59.045
  • And I heard the voice of God,I knew it was God, but it just
  • 00:04:59.078 --> 00:05:02.281
  • came outta nowhere.
  • 00:05:02.315 --> 00:05:04.517
  • I said, "Wow, thisis really strange."
  • 00:05:04.550 --> 00:05:07.453
  • I said, "Whoa, I justheard from the Lord.
  • 00:05:07.487 --> 00:05:12.191
  • I just got anassignment from God."
  • 00:05:12.225 --> 00:05:15.495
  • And, you know, as I wrote itdown and I made a note of it and
  • 00:05:15.528 --> 00:05:23.136
  • as we traveled back home, I toldmy husband that night, I said,
  • 00:05:23.169 --> 00:05:25.938
  • "The Lord spoke to me aboutministering to women in
  • 00:05:25.972 --> 00:05:29.108
  • prostitution and women in theadult entertainment industry."
  • 00:05:29.142 --> 00:05:33.379
  • So, he was super excitedabout it, super supportive.
  • 00:05:33.413 --> 00:05:35.948
  • "Yeah, go ahead and do it.
  • 00:05:35.982 --> 00:05:37.850
  • Step out on it.
  • 00:05:37.884 --> 00:05:39.652
  • I'm looking forward to it.
  • 00:05:39.685 --> 00:05:41.821
  • Praise God."
  • 00:05:41.854 --> 00:05:44.090
  • And, you know, lo and behold,God had already spoken to some
  • 00:05:44.123 --> 00:05:46.459
  • of the ladies who had come outof that lifestyle and said,
  • 00:05:46.492 --> 00:05:48.694
  • "Pastor Taffi, Iwanna come alongside.
  • 00:05:48.728 --> 00:05:51.264
  • I have a testimony.
  • 00:05:51.297 --> 00:05:53.332
  • God delivered me out of that,and God is leading me to support
  • 00:05:53.366 --> 00:05:58.671
  • you in whatever it isthat this initiative is."
  • 00:05:58.704 --> 00:06:01.841
  • But you know what?
  • 00:06:01.874 --> 00:06:04.510
  • I believe that was attributed tobeing where God wanted me to be.
  • 00:06:04.544 --> 00:06:09.115
  • And when we are led by God, andwe're following the leading of
  • 00:06:09.148 --> 00:06:13.486
  • the Holy Spirit, and we'reallowing the Holy Spirit to lead
  • 00:06:13.519 --> 00:06:16.589
  • us throughout our lives, andevery day when we wake up we
  • 00:06:16.622 --> 00:06:19.992
  • say, "Lord, less of me.
  • 00:06:20.026 --> 00:06:22.195
  • More of you, none of me,all of you, I honor you.
  • 00:06:22.228 --> 00:06:24.530
  • I acknowledge you so thatyou can direct my path."
  • 00:06:24.564 --> 00:06:28.501
  • Sometimes, when you just followhim in the mundane of routine
  • 00:06:28.534 --> 00:06:35.074
  • and regimen--you know, itwas no special service.
  • 00:06:35.107 --> 00:06:38.077
  • It wasn't like, you know, thelightning just kinda shined on
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:41.080
  • me, and then all of a sudden,you know, the billows were
  • 00:06:41.113 --> 00:06:44.083
  • roaring and all of a sudden,you know, there was this bush
  • 00:06:44.116 --> 00:06:47.053
  • that--no, it was just thestillness of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:06:47.086 --> 00:06:52.492
  • The Holy Spirit just beganto speak to me on the inside.
  • 00:06:52.525 --> 00:06:56.028
  • And you know what?
  • 00:06:56.062 --> 00:06:58.030
  • That vision just became birthed,and then, you know, here we are
  • 00:06:58.064 --> 00:07:01.334
  • 13 years later.
  • 00:07:01.367 --> 00:07:03.503
  • We're still puttingour hand to the plow.
  • 00:07:03.536 --> 00:07:05.738
  • We're still going out andministering and now we're, you
  • 00:07:05.771 --> 00:07:09.909
  • know, strategizing and believingGod how we can continue to be
  • 00:07:09.942 --> 00:07:13.446
  • effective and make impact.
  • 00:07:13.479 --> 00:07:16.549
  • But you know what?
  • 00:07:16.582 --> 00:07:18.751
  • I believe that came--I believethat Word came, that vision,
  • 00:07:18.784 --> 00:07:20.853
  • that assignment came because Iwas where God wanted me to be.
  • 00:07:20.887 --> 00:07:23.823
  • If I had been out of position,if I were not, you know, in the
  • 00:07:23.856 --> 00:07:27.460
  • place of hearing from God andjust expecting to hear his
  • 00:07:27.493 --> 00:07:31.964
  • voice, then I wouldn't havegotten that Word, so we have to
  • 00:07:31.998 --> 00:07:35.601
  • recognize it.
  • 00:07:35.635 --> 00:07:38.070
  • We have to open ourselvesup to God possibilities.
  • 00:07:38.104 --> 00:07:39.872
  • We have to limit the negativity.
  • 00:07:39.906 --> 00:07:42.408
  • We have to limit thefear in our life.
  • 00:07:42.441 --> 00:07:44.810
  • We have to squash all thosethings that will choke out our
  • 00:07:44.844 --> 00:07:47.680
  • confidence in hearing from God.
  • 00:07:47.713 --> 00:07:50.516
  • Now, if I was in a place offear, and I was thinking, "No,
  • 00:07:50.550 --> 00:07:53.052
  • that couldn't be God.
  • 00:07:53.085 --> 00:07:55.154
  • God wouldn't speak to a woman.
  • 00:07:55.187 --> 00:07:57.089
  • God wouldn't speak to me.
  • 00:07:57.123 --> 00:07:59.258
  • God's not speaking, you know,in these last days," no, but I
  • 00:07:59.292 --> 00:08:01.494
  • recognize that there are thingsthat God wants to do and that
  • 00:08:01.527 --> 00:08:04.864
  • all things are possiblethrough Jesus Christ.
  • 00:08:04.897 --> 00:08:10.269
  • Some things, you know, peoplebelieve are impossible, but you
  • 00:08:10.303 --> 00:08:15.274
  • know what?
  • 00:08:15.308 --> 00:08:17.610
  • God says, "With me all thingsare possible," so today I want
  • 00:08:17.643 --> 00:08:20.580
  • you to just open yourselfup to God possibilities.
  • 00:08:20.613 --> 00:08:23.616
  • Say that with me.
  • 00:08:23.649 --> 00:08:25.351
  • "I open myself up toGod possibilities.
  • 00:08:25.384 --> 00:08:27.353
  • I welcome hispossibilities in my life.
  • 00:08:27.386 --> 00:08:30.189
  • I believe that I receive allthings possible that God has
  • 00:08:30.222 --> 00:08:35.261
  • called and ordained formy life to experience."
  • 00:08:35.294 --> 00:08:39.332
  • And so, when we do that, whenwe make that the priority in our
  • 00:08:39.365 --> 00:08:44.270
  • lives, we put aside allnegative, limiting beliefs about
  • 00:08:44.303 --> 00:08:50.276
  • where we are called and whatit is that we are to do.
  • 00:08:50.309 --> 00:08:56.682
  • God will lead you onwho to partner with.
  • 00:08:56.716 --> 00:09:00.720
  • In business, he'll lead you onthe type of opportunities that
  • 00:09:00.753 --> 00:09:03.756
  • are available to you.
  • 00:09:03.789 --> 00:09:06.525
  • These are things that come asa result of us dissolving--just
  • 00:09:06.559 --> 00:09:10.830
  • make up in your mind that"I dissolve all fear.
  • 00:09:10.863 --> 00:09:15.835
  • I dissolve all limitations.
  • 00:09:15.868 --> 00:09:18.871
  • I put aside everything that iscontrary to the Word of God."
  • 00:09:18.904 --> 00:09:25.144
  • Now, let's look at a couplesituations here, and we can
  • 00:09:25.177 --> 00:09:30.616
  • start here in the bookof Numbers 13, verse 30.
  • 00:09:30.650 --> 00:09:37.523
  • I think we may have looked atthis Scripture last time, but
  • 00:09:37.556 --> 00:09:40.192
  • for the sake of repetition andjust to establish a text let's
  • 00:09:40.226 --> 00:09:43.562
  • look at Numbers chapter 13,and let's look at verse 30.
  • 00:09:43.596 --> 00:09:52.171
  • Now, the Amplified here is onthe screen, and you can just
  • 00:09:52.204 --> 00:09:55.775
  • follow along with me here, and Ibelieve that we'll get a hold of
  • 00:09:55.808 --> 00:10:02.014
  • the God possibilities, and itwill begin to give insight
  • 00:10:02.048 --> 00:10:06.852
  • and clarity.
  • 00:10:06.886 --> 00:10:08.521
  • So, it says, "Caleb quieted thepeople before Moses, and said,
  • 00:10:08.554 --> 00:10:13.259
  • Let us go up at onceand possess it."
  • 00:10:13.292 --> 00:10:18.297
  • This is Caleb.
  • 00:10:18.330 --> 00:10:20.666
  • He says, "We are well able," weare well able, "to conquer it."
  • 00:10:20.700 --> 00:10:26.372
  • You know, the peoplewere in uproar.
  • 00:10:26.405 --> 00:10:28.708
  • The people were,you know, afraid.
  • 00:10:28.741 --> 00:10:31.210
  • The people saw the--you know,how big the giants looked and
  • 00:10:31.243 --> 00:10:33.946
  • how they saw themselves beingso small, and, you know, they
  • 00:10:33.979 --> 00:10:40.586
  • probably were giving in to fearand giving in to limitations.
  • 00:10:40.619 --> 00:10:44.223
  • And, you know, I just thank Godthat there is someone like Caleb
  • 00:10:44.256 --> 00:10:47.026
  • who quieted the people, and hesaid, "Let us go up and
  • 00:10:47.059 --> 00:10:50.596
  • possess it.
  • 00:10:50.629 --> 00:10:53.499
  • We are well--we're well able."
  • 00:10:53.532 --> 00:10:56.469
  • "We're well able."
  • 00:10:56.502 --> 00:10:59.205
  • And so, look at whatit says in verse 31.
  • 00:10:59.238 --> 00:11:01.741
  • "But his fellow scouts said, Weare not able to go up against
  • 00:11:01.774 --> 00:11:04.510
  • the people [of Canaan], forthey are stronger than we."
  • 00:11:04.543 --> 00:11:10.049
  • And look at what hesays here in verse 32.
  • 00:11:10.082 --> 00:11:13.352
  • "So they brought the Israelitesan evil report of the land which
  • 00:11:13.385 --> 00:11:17.056
  • they had scouted out, saying,The land through which we went
  • 00:11:17.089 --> 00:11:19.925
  • to spy it out is a land thatdevours its inhabitants.
  • 00:11:19.959 --> 00:11:26.899
  • And all the people that we sawin it are men of great stature."
  • 00:11:26.932 --> 00:11:34.874
  • And let's look atthis next verse.
  • 00:11:34.907 --> 00:11:38.010
  • "There we saw the Nephilim [orgiants], for the sons of Anak,
  • 00:11:38.043 --> 00:11:44.483
  • who come from the giants; andwe were in our own sight as
  • 00:11:44.517 --> 00:11:48.954
  • grasshoppers, and so wewere in their sight."
  • 00:11:48.988 --> 00:11:56.095
  • And so, "All the people," thecongregation, "cried out," it
  • 00:11:56.128 --> 00:11:59.598
  • says, "with a loud voice,and [they] wept that night."
  • 00:11:59.632 --> 00:12:03.936
  • And so, I want us to understandsome things here, because this
  • 00:12:03.969 --> 00:12:07.206
  • is so important just in terms ofhow we see the fact that Caleb
  • 00:12:07.239 --> 00:12:12.444
  • had confidence.
  • 00:12:12.478 --> 00:12:15.414
  • Caleb didn't givein to the fear.
  • 00:12:15.447 --> 00:12:17.583
  • Caleb didn't give in to thelimitations, the negativity, but
  • 00:12:17.616 --> 00:12:20.753
  • you know what?
  • 00:12:20.786 --> 00:12:22.721
  • He says, "We are wellable to possess it.
  • 00:12:22.755 --> 00:12:25.524
  • We are in the position to layhold of this land," that the
  • 00:12:25.558 --> 00:12:31.530
  • Bible says that's flowingwith milk and honey.
  • 00:12:31.564 --> 00:12:35.367
  • And so, he was willing to getout and to go up at once and, as
  • 00:12:35.401 --> 00:12:40.840
  • a result, those aroundhim were not in the place.
  • 00:12:40.873 --> 00:12:46.478
  • And then, it says here inchapter 14, verse 2, "And all
  • 00:12:46.512 --> 00:12:51.217
  • the children--all the Israelitesgrumbled and deplored the
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:56.088
  • situation, accusing Mosesand Aaron, to whom the whole
  • 00:12:56.121 --> 00:12:59.892
  • congregation said, Wouldthat we had died in Egypt!
  • 00:12:59.925 --> 00:13:04.330
  • Or that we had diedin this wilderness!"
  • 00:13:04.363 --> 00:13:08.667
  • Look at what it says in verse 3.
  • 00:13:08.701 --> 00:13:11.103
  • "Why does the Lord bring us tothis land to fall by the sword?
  • 00:13:11.136 --> 00:13:16.575
  • Our wives, our littleones, will be a prey.
  • 00:13:16.609 --> 00:13:20.212
  • Is it not better forus to return to Egypt?"
  • 00:13:20.246 --> 00:13:25.818
  • And so, we see here that thereare limitations, like I was
  • 00:13:25.851 --> 00:13:29.221
  • saying earlier, that thelimitations that they had placed
  • 00:13:29.255 --> 00:13:33.392
  • on themselves, the beliefs thatthey were too small, that they
  • 00:13:33.425 --> 00:13:37.696
  • were too insignificant, thatthey didn't have what it took.
  • 00:13:37.730 --> 00:13:43.235
  • And, as a result, they were infear and, as a result, they were
  • 00:13:43.269 --> 00:13:49.041
  • not willing to go to that placewhere God had destined for their
  • 00:13:49.074 --> 00:13:53.946
  • lives to be, so we have to putaside--we have to put aside the
  • 00:13:53.979 --> 00:13:59.852
  • mentality, put aside thethinking of the evil report, and
  • 00:13:59.885 --> 00:14:04.623
  • put aside those things that wantto cause us to not believe and
  • 00:14:04.657 --> 00:14:10.329
  • not to trust God.
  • 00:14:10.362 --> 00:14:12.898
  • Not to give in to the spiritof murmuring as we see here.
  • 00:14:12.932 --> 00:14:16.835
  • The children ofIsrael, they murmured.
  • 00:14:16.869 --> 00:14:19.471
  • And you know what?
  • 00:14:19.505 --> 00:14:21.607
  • Once you start murmuring andonce you start complaining, then
  • 00:14:21.640 --> 00:14:24.209
  • you get into a place of doubtand unbelief, and as a result
  • 00:14:24.243 --> 00:14:27.913
  • they wanted to return backinstead of moving forward,
  • 00:14:27.947 --> 00:14:31.483
  • because, as I've mentioned, thisis a journey that should not
  • 00:14:31.517 --> 00:14:34.720
  • have taken as long as it did.
  • 00:14:34.753 --> 00:14:37.056
  • But you know what?
  • 00:14:37.089 --> 00:14:39.224
  • Because of fear and limitationsand unbelief they were out of
  • 00:14:39.258 --> 00:14:43.095
  • the place that Godwanted them to be.
  • 00:14:43.128 --> 00:14:47.766
  • Turn over to Psalms 37,Psalms 37.
  • 00:14:47.800 --> 00:14:51.070
  • Let's look at this, because Ibelieve, child of God, I believe
  • 00:14:51.103 --> 00:14:56.809
  • that the Spirit of the Lord willbegin to speak to your life this
  • 00:14:56.842 --> 00:15:03.215
  • day, and you will get a hold ofthe things that he wants you
  • 00:15:03.248 --> 00:15:11.724
  • to experience.
  • 00:15:11.757 --> 00:15:15.627
  • Now, I mentioned to you some ofthe examples that we looked at,
  • 00:15:15.661 --> 00:15:25.237
  • and I just believe today thatyou're at the right place and at
  • 00:15:25.270 --> 00:15:29.541
  • the right time becauseGod has ordained it.
  • 00:15:29.575 --> 00:15:33.212
  • And I want you to be encouragedthat being at the right place at
  • 00:15:33.245 --> 00:15:36.749
  • the right time is not limitedto where you are physically.
  • 00:15:36.782 --> 00:15:40.819
  • It's not limited to yourphysical position, but it's all
  • 00:15:40.853 --> 00:15:44.590
  • about your spiritual condition.
  • 00:15:44.623 --> 00:15:47.960
  • So, you have to ask yourself,"What type of spiritual
  • 00:15:47.993 --> 00:15:51.030
  • condition am I in today?
  • 00:15:51.063 --> 00:15:53.298
  • What spiritual positionam I finding myself?
  • 00:15:53.332 --> 00:15:56.168
  • Am I in fear?
  • 00:15:56.201 --> 00:15:58.470
  • Am I in unbelief?
  • 00:15:58.504 --> 00:16:00.739
  • Am I in doubt?"
  • 00:16:00.773 --> 00:16:03.375
  • because these things will causeus not to be in the position
  • 00:16:03.409 --> 00:16:07.379
  • where we can experience God'sfavor in our life, and the thing
  • 00:16:07.413 --> 00:16:12.084
  • that he desiresto do in our life.
  • 00:16:12.117 --> 00:16:15.454
  • God is saying to you what hesaid to the exiles in Babylon.
  • 00:16:15.487 --> 00:16:19.992
  • "Go build houses, plantvineyards, settle down.
  • 00:16:20.025 --> 00:16:23.829
  • Enjoy yourself wherever youare," but wherever you are know
  • 00:16:23.862 --> 00:16:27.599
  • that God is also.
  • 00:16:27.633 --> 00:16:30.369
  • God wants you to be at the rightplace, at the right time to see
  • 00:16:30.402 --> 00:16:33.772
  • his face and to hear his voice.
  • 00:16:33.806 --> 00:16:38.877
  • That's what favor is, to seehis face and to hear his voice.
  • 00:16:38.911 --> 00:16:44.883
  • Being at the right place at theright time is what happened even
  • 00:16:44.917 --> 00:16:48.387
  • with Noah.
  • 00:16:48.420 --> 00:16:51.090
  • Because he was building the arkand he was preparing for what
  • 00:16:51.123 --> 00:16:54.560
  • God wanted to do, the Bible saysthat Noah found favor with God.
  • 00:16:54.593 --> 00:17:00.666
  • Noah found preferentialtreatment with God.
  • 00:17:00.699 --> 00:17:05.437
  • And you know what?
  • 00:17:05.471 --> 00:17:08.107
  • He experienced God'sdeliverance, God's protection,
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:10.876
  • God's safety, and so it'simportant that you are pursuing
  • 00:17:10.909 --> 00:17:14.680
  • that right relationship withGod, and you're endeavoring to
  • 00:17:14.713 --> 00:17:19.718
  • turn everything over to him sothat you can begin to experience
  • 00:17:19.751 --> 00:17:23.288
  • what he has designedfor your life.
  • 00:17:23.322 --> 00:17:27.092
  • Now, let's look atsome things here.
  • 00:17:27.126 --> 00:17:30.529
  • The Scripture says in Psalms37--we're gonna look at
  • 00:17:30.562 --> 00:17:35.033
  • verse 23.
  • 00:17:35.067 --> 00:17:38.036
  • Psalms 37.
  • 00:17:38.070 --> 00:17:41.073
  • Let's look at verse 23.
  • 00:17:41.106 --> 00:17:43.308
  • I think it's where we wannalook at, see what it says here.
  • 00:17:43.342 --> 00:17:46.512
  • Just flowing with the Spirit ofGod, trusting that it's gonna be
  • 00:17:46.545 --> 00:17:49.448
  • a blessing to your life.
  • 00:17:49.481 --> 00:17:52.784
  • "The steps of a [good] man--"
  • 00:17:52.818 --> 00:17:56.155
  • Or, in this instance, a goodwoman, referring to myself.
  • 00:17:56.188 --> 00:18:00.392
  • "The steps of a [good] personare directed and established by
  • 00:18:00.425 --> 00:18:06.932
  • the Lord when he delights in hisway," or delights in her way,
  • 00:18:06.965 --> 00:18:12.804
  • "[and he busies himselfwith his every step]."
  • 00:18:12.838 --> 00:18:20.546
  • And so, I want us to understandthat when we make up in our
  • 00:18:20.579 --> 00:18:25.517
  • minds--that part of us beingwhere God wants us to be is to
  • 00:18:25.551 --> 00:18:32.457
  • recognize that our stepshave to be ordered by him.
  • 00:18:32.491 --> 00:18:35.694
  • You have to make up in your mindthat "I'm yielding my life over
  • 00:18:35.727 --> 00:18:38.397
  • to him, what it is that he wantsme to do, where he wants me
  • 00:18:38.430 --> 00:18:42.601
  • to go.
  • 00:18:42.634 --> 00:18:45.837
  • I am following, and I'm allowinghim to speak to my life."
  • 00:18:45.871 --> 00:18:51.476
  • And then, as a result, if hesays to go to the left, I
  • 00:18:51.510 --> 00:18:55.781
  • turn left.
  • 00:18:55.814 --> 00:18:57.516
  • He says, "Go to theright," I turn right.
  • 00:18:57.549 --> 00:18:59.985
  • If he says to moveforward, I move forward.
  • 00:19:00.018 --> 00:19:02.754
  • My steps areordered by the Lord.
  • 00:19:02.788 --> 00:19:06.024
  • He is directing me,and he is leading me.
  • 00:19:06.058 --> 00:19:09.261
  • You know, if I'd probablybeen in a backslidden state or
  • 00:19:09.294 --> 00:19:15.067
  • somewhere, you know, not doingthe things of God, I wouldn't
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:19.338
  • have heard or received thatassignment from the Lord
  • 00:19:19.371 --> 00:19:22.808
  • concerning Prestige Ministry.
  • 00:19:22.841 --> 00:19:25.477
  • I wouldn't have been in theposition to be able to tune in
  • 00:19:25.510 --> 00:19:27.846
  • to recognize his voice, andso we have to do our part in
  • 00:19:27.879 --> 00:19:31.483
  • understanding that he says thathe'll direct us and we'll be
  • 00:19:31.516 --> 00:19:35.821
  • established when wedelight in his way.
  • 00:19:35.854 --> 00:19:41.293
  • "[And he busies himselfwith his every step]."
  • 00:19:41.326 --> 00:19:46.498
  • So, I encourage you todayto delight in God's way.
  • 00:19:46.531 --> 00:19:50.369
  • Delight in his Word.
  • 00:19:50.402 --> 00:19:53.005
  • Busy yourself with him.
  • 00:19:53.038 --> 00:19:55.974
  • That reminds me about Ruth.
  • 00:19:56.008 --> 00:19:58.510
  • You know, Ruth was one who wasa widow, and, you know, she had
  • 00:19:58.543 --> 00:20:01.179
  • experienced loss, death, grief,all kinds of things in her life.
  • 00:20:01.213 --> 00:20:04.383
  • But you know what?
  • 00:20:04.416 --> 00:20:06.318
  • She was willing to busy herself.
  • 00:20:06.351 --> 00:20:08.920
  • She told Naomi, she says,"Wherever you go, I'll be with
  • 00:20:08.954 --> 00:20:11.056
  • you.
  • 00:20:11.089 --> 00:20:13.458
  • Your God will be my God.
  • 00:20:13.492 --> 00:20:15.861
  • I'll follow you."
  • 00:20:15.894 --> 00:20:17.629
  • And, you know, Naomi gave herinstructions on what to do.
  • 00:20:17.663 --> 00:20:19.698
  • She said, "You go out here andyou, you know, busy yourself in
  • 00:20:19.731 --> 00:20:21.800
  • doing the things."
  • 00:20:21.833 --> 00:20:24.002
  • And as a result of thedirections and acknowledging and
  • 00:20:24.036 --> 00:20:26.405
  • busying herself in the way, thatwas how she was able to bump
  • 00:20:26.438 --> 00:20:29.441
  • into Boaz.
  • 00:20:29.474 --> 00:20:31.510
  • That's how she was able to meetthe right person at the
  • 00:20:31.543 --> 00:20:33.445
  • right time.
  • 00:20:33.478 --> 00:20:35.547
  • That's how thatconnection took place.
  • 00:20:35.580 --> 00:20:38.417
  • And, as we know, it gave birthto further generations, and the
  • 00:20:38.450 --> 00:20:41.753
  • genealogy of Jesus came outof that, and marriages, and so
  • 00:20:41.787 --> 00:20:45.757
  • forth and so on.
  • 00:20:45.791 --> 00:20:47.793
  • But you know what?
  • 00:20:47.826 --> 00:20:50.128
  • I believe that's by usacknowledging him and allowing
  • 00:20:50.162 --> 00:20:53.231
  • God to direct our steps, andwe're busying our self, and
  • 00:20:53.265 --> 00:20:57.302
  • we're delighting in his way andmaking that the priority for our
  • 00:20:57.336 --> 00:21:01.740
  • lives, and so I want you to geta hold of this because I think
  • 00:21:01.773 --> 00:21:09.648
  • this is so key and so vital.
  • 00:21:09.681 --> 00:21:13.652
  • Now, let's go a little furtherhere into the book of Acts, and
  • 00:21:13.685 --> 00:21:20.625
  • we will see how there werepeople who were filled with the
  • 00:21:20.659 --> 00:21:27.232
  • Holy Spirit and, as a result,their lives were never the
  • 00:21:27.265 --> 00:21:32.804
  • same again.
  • 00:21:32.838 --> 00:21:35.907
  • Look at the book of Acts chapter2, the book of Acts chapter 2,
  • 00:21:35.941 --> 00:21:38.777
  • verse 1.
  • 00:21:38.810 --> 00:21:45.350
  • I believe that the Holy Spirit,in these last days, is still a
  • 00:21:45.384 --> 00:21:52.624
  • very present help in your lifeand can cause you to be led and
  • 00:21:52.657 --> 00:22:00.198
  • cause you to be directed by him.
  • 00:22:00.232 --> 00:22:04.803
  • Verse 1 says, "And on theday--when the day of Pentecost
  • 00:22:04.836 --> 00:22:08.340
  • had fully come, they were allin--assembled together in one
  • 00:22:08.373 --> 00:22:12.711
  • place," they were all in a placeof assembly, "when suddenly
  • 00:22:12.744 --> 00:22:20.685
  • there came a sound from heavenlike the rushing of a violent
  • 00:22:20.719 --> 00:22:27.659
  • tempest blast, and it filled thewhole house in which they
  • 00:22:27.692 --> 00:22:36.201
  • were sitting."
  • 00:22:36.234 --> 00:22:39.137
  • I'm telling you, child of God,when you are in the place where
  • 00:22:39.171 --> 00:22:44.576
  • God wants you to be--and theywere there in expectation for
  • 00:22:44.609 --> 00:22:50.182
  • what Jesus had promised, thatthere'll be a Comforter who
  • 00:22:50.215 --> 00:22:53.919
  • will come.
  • 00:22:53.952 --> 00:22:55.821
  • Jesus said, "You know, I'm notgonna be with you always, but
  • 00:22:55.854 --> 00:22:58.623
  • there'll be a time where as Ileave the Comforter, he will
  • 00:22:58.657 --> 00:23:01.860
  • come, and he will fill in forme," so they were in expectation
  • 00:23:01.893 --> 00:23:05.330
  • for this Comforter who Jesussaid would come back and
  • 00:23:05.363 --> 00:23:10.502
  • replace him.
  • 00:23:10.535 --> 00:23:12.337
  • So, they were there waiting onthe day of Pentecost, in one
  • 00:23:12.370 --> 00:23:18.009
  • place, trusting God that whatJesus said would come to pass.
  • 00:23:18.043 --> 00:23:24.783
  • "And there appeared to themtongues resembling fire, which
  • 00:23:24.816 --> 00:23:30.121
  • were separated and distributedand which settled on each one
  • 00:23:30.155 --> 00:23:35.327
  • of them."
  • 00:23:35.360 --> 00:23:39.731
  • Glory be to God.
  • 00:23:39.764 --> 00:23:41.933
  • "And they were all filled--"
  • 00:23:41.967 --> 00:23:45.904
  • And that's what happens.
  • 00:23:45.937 --> 00:23:48.240
  • Children were filled.
  • 00:23:48.273 --> 00:23:50.041
  • Men, women were filled.
  • 00:23:50.075 --> 00:23:53.245
  • You know, when Jesus finishedand established the covenant of
  • 00:23:53.278 --> 00:23:57.449
  • God, he said, "It is done."
  • 00:23:57.482 --> 00:24:00.952
  • Then, as a result, his power wasnot just on top, but his power
  • 00:24:00.986 --> 00:24:06.925
  • was within.
  • 00:24:06.958 --> 00:24:09.394
  • And it wasn't just on men, butthen the power of God came
  • 00:24:09.427 --> 00:24:12.330
  • on women.
  • 00:24:12.364 --> 00:24:14.633
  • He says, "They were all filled(diffused throughout their
  • 00:24:14.666 --> 00:24:20.405
  • souls) with the Holy Spirit,and they began to speak in other
  • 00:24:20.438 --> 00:24:23.909
  • (different, foreign) language(tongues), as the Spirit kept
  • 00:24:23.942 --> 00:24:30.015
  • giving them clear and loudexpression [in each tongue in
  • 00:24:30.048 --> 00:24:34.819
  • appropriate words]."
  • 00:24:34.853 --> 00:24:38.890
  • So, I'm here to tell you, childof God, I'm here to encourage
