  • Say that, "I am always incontrol of my heart,"
  • 00:07:04.070 --> 00:07:07.940
  • so you have tochoose to allow

  • the circumstancesinto your heart.
  • 00:07:11.644 --> 00:07:14.180

  • To be honest with you,nobody can really offend you.
  • 00:07:29.462 --> 00:07:32.698
  • You have tochoose to be offended.
  • 00:07:32.732 --> 00:07:35.501

  • to be offended by the stupid.
  • 00:07:37.904 --> 00:07:43.075

  • 00:08:01.294 --> 00:08:03.596
  • Mm.
  • 00:08:03.629 --> 00:08:05.932

  • My belief, the thingthat I believe,
  • 00:08:13.806 --> 00:08:15.474
  • is what's allowed in my heart.
  • 00:08:15.508 --> 00:08:17.543
  • The thing I believe iswhat's allowed in my heart.
  • 00:08:17.577 --> 00:08:20.580
  • Look at this society today.
  • 00:08:20.613 --> 00:08:22.081
  • Look at the things peoplehave chosen to believe.
  • 00:08:22.114 --> 00:08:25.418
  • That's in their heart.
  • 00:08:25.451 --> 00:08:26.752
  • Eventually, it will betheir life.
  • 00:08:26.786 --> 00:08:28.888

  • My God, what are some of thedevilish things that you've
  • 00:08:33.159 --> 00:08:35.895
  • chosen to believe, andit's not in God's Word?
  • 00:08:35.928 --> 00:08:39.865
  • You can cancel it today,'cause if not eventually
  • 00:08:39.899 --> 00:08:41.968

  • 00:08:42.001 --> 00:08:44.403
  • That will be your life.
  • 00:08:44.437 --> 00:08:45.738
  • "I don't believeGod can heal nobody."

  • "Oh, well, Brother Dollar,are there some things

  • that happen that wedon't understand?"
  • 00:09:01.354 --> 00:09:02.688
  • Yes, there are some things thathappen that we don't understand.
  • 00:09:02.722 --> 00:09:04.991
  • You got lots of questions beforeGod, but at the same time
  • 00:09:05.024 --> 00:09:08.628
  • I am just not withyou all the time.
  • 00:09:08.661 --> 00:09:12.999
  • People have perfectedphoniness so much.
  • 00:09:13.032 --> 00:09:15.935
  • They can say one thingand believe another.
  • 00:09:15.968 --> 00:09:18.004
  • See, that's the thing about it.
  • 00:09:19.839 --> 00:09:21.140
  • You can go around all day long,"Oh, I praise the Lord.
  • 00:09:21.173 --> 00:09:22.775
  • Oh, he's awesome.He's--"
  • 00:09:22.808 --> 00:09:24.377
  • And don't even believenothing you just said
  • 00:09:24.410 --> 00:09:28.114
  • and, unfortunately,I ain't in your heart.
  • 00:09:28.147 --> 00:09:30.216
  • Excuse my English, but I can'tjudge what you believe.
  • 00:09:30.249 --> 00:09:33.052
  • I just only can hearwhat you said
  • 00:09:33.085 --> 00:09:36.489
  • and sometimes you don'tbelieve what you say.
  • 00:09:36.522 --> 00:09:41.360
  • What did this--you know,friend of ours has gone on
  • 00:09:42.228 --> 00:09:44.730
  • to be with the Lord.
  • 00:09:44.764 --> 00:09:46.098
  • Charles Capps used to say,"You can have what you say,
  • 00:09:46.132 --> 00:09:51.303
  • but you keep sayingwhat you have."
  • 00:09:51.337 --> 00:09:55.207
  • That's interesting.I mean, I don't know that.
  • 00:09:55.241 --> 00:09:58.444
  • I'm not around you when somebodydo something to you,
  • 00:09:58.477 --> 00:10:00.946
  • and then when you're byyourself you cuss somebody.
  • 00:10:00.980 --> 00:10:04.684
  • But what you choose to believe,it gets in your heart,
  • 00:10:05.284 --> 00:10:10.423
  • so your heart condition is basedon your belief condition,
  • 00:10:10.456 --> 00:10:14.026
  • and then it willbecome your life.
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:17.229
  • So, what we choose tobelieve is what determines
  • 00:10:17.263 --> 00:10:19.131
  • what we allow into our hearts.
  • 00:10:19.165 --> 00:10:21.167
  • Depression cannot stayif you are holding on
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:24.704
  • to God's Wordand his promises.
  • 00:10:24.737 --> 00:10:26.605
  • It can't.
  • 00:10:26.639 --> 00:10:28.174
  • I'm a witness.It cannot.
  • 00:10:28.207 --> 00:10:30.076
  • I am a witness.It cannot stay.
  • 00:10:30.109 --> 00:10:32.878
  • When depression triedto wipe me out,
  • 00:10:32.912 --> 00:10:35.047
  • it was God's Wordwe held on to.
  • 00:10:35.081 --> 00:10:36.749
  • My wife is a witness.It was that Word.
  • 00:10:36.782 --> 00:10:39.051
  • I carried these little booksthat had all these
  • 00:10:39.085 --> 00:10:41.153
  • confessions in it,and it was God's Word.
  • 00:10:41.187 --> 00:10:43.489
  • It cannot stay if God's Word isthere, and you keep bombarding
  • 00:10:43.522 --> 00:10:47.226
  • it with the Word ofGod, it cannot stay.
  • 00:10:47.259 --> 00:10:49.929
  • It will try to grip on,but you're like, "No,
  • 00:10:49.962 --> 00:10:51.897
  • I'm gonna get the Wordwhen I don't feel like it.
  • 00:10:51.931 --> 00:10:54.033
  • I'm gonna get theWord, praise God?
  • 00:10:54.066 --> 00:10:55.935
  • Bless his holy name."
  • 00:10:55.968 --> 00:10:58.571
  • Say this with me, "Depressioncannot stay if you are holding
  • 00:10:58.604 --> 00:11:03.642
  • on to God's Wordand God's promises."
  • 00:11:03.676 --> 00:11:09.582
  • It can't stay, so if you allowthe trouble around you
  • 00:11:10.216 --> 00:11:13.652
  • to get inside you, its seedwill produce a harvest.
  • 00:11:13.686 --> 00:11:18.424
  • Therefore, you mustmake a decision to
  • 00:11:18.457 --> 00:11:21.994
  • not let your heart be troubled.
  • 00:11:22.027 --> 00:11:24.997
  • You must make a decision tonot let your heart be troubled.
  • 00:11:25.030 --> 00:11:28.601
  • How?Well, step number two.
  • 00:11:28.634 --> 00:11:33.672
  • Step number two: speakto your problem,
  • 00:11:33.706 --> 00:11:38.377
  • rather than speakingabout your problem.
  • 00:11:38.410 --> 00:11:42.982
  • Speak to it and not about it.
  • 00:11:43.015 --> 00:11:47.953
  • You know, Bible talksabout speaking
  • 00:11:47.987 --> 00:11:49.889
  • to your mountain,not about it.
  • 00:11:49.922 --> 00:11:51.457
  • You ever met those folkswho just talk about
  • 00:11:51.490 --> 00:11:52.858
  • their problem all the time?
  • 00:11:52.892 --> 00:11:55.127
  • They hadn't spoken to it.They just talk about it.
  • 00:11:55.161 --> 00:11:58.531
  • "Well, you know, the doctorsaid, and then they're sending
  • 00:11:58.564 --> 00:12:01.200
  • me to a specialist,and, you know, he said.
  • 00:12:01.233 --> 00:12:04.036
  • And then, I had to get onthe MRI, get under that
  • 00:12:04.069 --> 00:12:06.438
  • machine about another--abouttwo hours and, you know,
  • 00:12:06.472 --> 00:12:09.542
  • the report issupposed to be out."
  • 00:12:09.575 --> 00:12:11.343
  • And you keep talkingabout your problem,
  • 00:12:11.377 --> 00:12:15.381
  • instead of talkingto your problem.
  • 00:12:15.414 --> 00:12:18.150
  • What's the difference?
  • 00:12:18.184 --> 00:12:19.485
  • When you talk to it, you'vereleased authority over it.
  • 00:12:19.518 --> 00:12:23.889
  • In other words,you flip the switch.
  • 00:12:24.423 --> 00:12:27.193
  • You don't talk to yourproblem, and I'll tell
  • 00:12:27.226 --> 00:12:30.596
  • you another thing we do.
  • 00:12:30.629 --> 00:12:31.931
  • We talk to Godabout our problems.
  • 00:12:31.964 --> 00:12:33.732
  • Oh, my gosh.
  • 00:12:33.766 --> 00:12:35.467
  • We fall down on ourbended knees, and we talk
  • 00:12:35.501 --> 00:12:38.771
  • to God about how hard it is.
  • 00:12:38.804 --> 00:12:41.540
  • "It's so hard, Jesus.You know, Lord."
  • 00:12:41.574 --> 00:12:45.277
  • [laughing]
  • 00:12:45.311 --> 00:12:47.246
  • I'm not gonna go there.
  • 00:12:47.980 --> 00:12:49.415
  • Anyway, look at Mark 11:23.Mark 11:23.
  • 00:12:49.448 --> 00:12:56.088
  • Listen to what he says here.
  • 00:12:56.121 --> 00:12:57.823
  • "For verily I say unto you,That whosoever--"
  • 00:12:57.857 --> 00:13:00.259
  • Say out loud, "I'm a whosoever."
  • 00:13:00.292 --> 00:13:02.528
  • "Whosoever shall sayunto this mountain,"
  • 00:13:02.561 --> 00:13:04.697
  • representing those problems,"Be thou removed--"
  • 00:13:04.730 --> 00:13:07.199
  • Say to the mountain.He's speaking to the mountain.
  • 00:13:07.233 --> 00:13:09.034
  • "Be thou removed."
  • 00:13:09.068 --> 00:13:11.303
  • That's what you speak to themountain of depression,
  • 00:13:11.337 --> 00:13:13.072
  • to the mountain offinancial difficulty.
  • 00:13:13.105 --> 00:13:15.241
  • You speak to the mountain, "Bethou removed, and be thou cast
  • 00:13:15.274 --> 00:13:18.010
  • into the sea; and if you don'tdoubt in your heart, but you
  • 00:13:18.043 --> 00:13:22.414
  • shall believe in your heartthat those things which he saith
  • 00:13:22.448 --> 00:13:27.353
  • shall come to pass," I believethat what the Word says shall
  • 00:13:27.386 --> 00:13:31.590
  • come to pass, if youbelieve that he says,
  • 00:13:31.624 --> 00:13:35.027
  • "then whatsoever he saithhe shall have."
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:39.498
  • How many believe that?
  • 00:13:40.900 --> 00:13:42.968
  • So, it's time toattack depression.
  • 00:13:43.002 --> 00:13:46.772
  • Depression is in your life?
  • 00:13:46.805 --> 00:13:48.274
  • Speak to it, not about it.Speak to it.
  • 00:13:48.307 --> 00:13:52.611
  • Man, I used to make $150 a hourjust listening to people
  • 00:13:53.212 --> 00:13:55.614
  • talk about their problems.
  • 00:13:55.648 --> 00:14:00.219
  • They gotta speak to it.You speak to your problem.
  • 00:14:00.920 --> 00:14:03.555
  • "Well, what if yourproblem your husband?"
  • 00:14:03.589 --> 00:14:05.791
  • Speak to it, and then the Lordmight speak to you and say,
  • 00:14:05.824 --> 00:14:12.598
  • "No, youse the problem."
  • 00:14:12.631 --> 00:14:16.135
  • Wherever the problem,wherever you locate the
  • 00:14:16.168 --> 00:14:17.569
  • problem by the end ofthe day, speak to it.
  • 00:14:17.603 --> 00:14:20.706
  • Tell it to, "Be thou removed."
  • 00:14:20.739 --> 00:14:23.542
  • Now, this is a one-wayconversation you
  • 00:14:23.575 --> 00:14:26.145
  • must have with depression.
  • 00:14:26.178 --> 00:14:28.314
  • And this thing that's weighingyou down in your heart,
  • 00:14:28.347 --> 00:14:32.718
  • you gotta speak to it,not about it.
  • 00:14:32.751 --> 00:14:35.354
  • Speak to it.Now, think about this now.
  • 00:14:35.387 --> 00:14:38.223
  • When was the--the issue thatyou're dealing with, the
  • 00:14:38.257 --> 00:14:40.759
  • issue you came here dealingwith today, here is a question:
  • 00:14:40.793 --> 00:14:42.995
  • have you spoken to it?
  • 00:14:43.028 --> 00:14:45.397
  • Never forget one day, I wasgoing through something, and
  • 00:14:45.431 --> 00:14:48.300
  • the Lord said, "Son, youhaven't spoke to it."
  • 00:14:48.334 --> 00:14:51.370
  • And sometimes you let thosepowerful yet--the simple
  • 00:14:51.403 --> 00:14:55.074
  • but powerful truths,they slip.
  • 00:14:55.107 --> 00:14:57.142
  • The Bible says be carefulthat we don't let it slip.
  • 00:14:57.176 --> 00:15:00.813
  • Have we let thatpart of it slip?
  • 00:15:00.846 --> 00:15:02.281
  • That's a part of our authority.
  • 00:15:02.314 --> 00:15:03.649
  • We have authority to speak totrouble, problems, sickness.
  • 00:15:03.682 --> 00:15:09.321
  • Have you spoken to it?Have you spoken to it?
  • 00:15:09.355 --> 00:15:12.624
  • I still speak to my prostate."You are perfect."
  • 00:15:12.658 --> 00:15:18.130
  • I speak to my cells,"You are perfect."
  • 00:15:19.865 --> 00:15:23.969
  • I speak to lack,"Lack, go in Jesus's name.
  • 00:15:25.404 --> 00:15:29.208
  • You have no authority here."
  • 00:15:29.241 --> 00:15:32.711
  • I speak to demon spiritsthat try to mess
  • 00:15:36.081 --> 00:15:38.117
  • with my friends and relatives.
  • 00:15:38.150 --> 00:15:39.551
  • "Devil, I speak to you.
  • 00:15:39.585 --> 00:15:41.520
  • You cease in your maneuversagainst them right now
  • 00:15:41.553 --> 00:15:43.856
  • in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:15:43.889 --> 00:15:45.491
  • The will of God will befulfilled in their life, and
  • 00:15:45.524 --> 00:15:47.559
  • they will serve God perfectlyin the name--"
  • 00:15:47.593 --> 00:15:50.629
  • Speak to it.
  • 00:15:50.662 --> 00:15:52.464
  • Oh, oh, now I know whyyou don't speak to it.
  • 00:15:52.498 --> 00:15:56.402
  • Oh, you don't believe.
  • 00:15:56.435 --> 00:16:00.606
  • The doggonebelievers ain't believing.
  • 00:16:02.374 --> 00:16:06.045
  • Speak to it.Speak to it on your way home.
  • 00:16:08.580 --> 00:16:13.952
  • Speak to it every timethe pain show up.
  • 00:16:13.986 --> 00:16:17.022
  • Speak to it.
  • 00:16:17.056 --> 00:16:19.625
  • Let the redeemedof the Lord say so.
  • 00:16:19.658 --> 00:16:22.494
  • Don't you sit there in silencewhile trouble and plans
  • 00:16:22.528 --> 00:16:26.732
  • of the devil tryto wreck you up.
  • 00:16:26.765 --> 00:16:28.467
  • You open your mouth.
  • 00:16:28.500 --> 00:16:30.169
  • There is something soawesome about a Spirit-filled,
  • 00:16:30.202 --> 00:16:33.272
  • born-again, baptized, HolyGhost-filled believer
  • 00:16:33.305 --> 00:16:37.709
  • opening your mouth andspeaking to the mountain.
  • 00:16:37.743 --> 00:16:40.813
  • The devil has no defense.
  • 00:16:40.846 --> 00:16:45.317
  • There is no defense against aSpirit-filled believer
  • 00:16:45.350 --> 00:16:48.320
  • that opens his mouth upand speaks his faith out.
  • 00:16:48.353 --> 00:16:52.758
  • "Depression, you get outtahere in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:16:52.791 --> 00:16:55.394
  • You will not ruin my life.
  • 00:16:55.427 --> 00:16:57.296
  • You are the enemy to my success,and I'll not have it, so I cast
  • 00:16:57.329 --> 00:17:03.969
  • you into hogs, dogs, elephants,wherever you gotta go.
  • 00:17:04.002 --> 00:17:06.872
  • You ain't staying here."
  • 00:17:06.905 --> 00:17:08.707
  • Let the redeemedof the Lord say so.
  • 00:17:10.676 --> 00:17:12.544
  • Let the redeemedof the Lord say so.
  • 00:17:13.278 --> 00:17:15.447
  • Let the redeemedof the Lord say so.
  • 00:17:16.014 --> 00:17:18.584
  • Somebody shout, "I believe."Number three.
  • 00:17:19.384 --> 00:17:23.889
  • Number three: if there issomething missing in your life,
  • 00:17:30.929 --> 00:17:36.735
  • if there is something missingin your life, ask God for it.
  • 00:17:36.768 --> 00:17:42.007
  • Somebody say, "What?"Depressed because of something?
  • 00:17:43.442 --> 00:17:47.045
  • What's the somethingthat's depressing you?
  • 00:17:47.079 --> 00:17:49.214
  • Have you asked God?
  • 00:17:49.248 --> 00:17:53.218
  • Think about the stuffwe let happen when
  • 00:17:53.252 --> 00:17:56.221
  • all of this authority hasbeen given to us.
  • 00:17:56.255 --> 00:17:59.691
  • Look at John 16:24.
  • 00:17:59.725 --> 00:18:02.961
  • John 16:24 says, "Hitherto," upuntil this time, "have you asked
  • 00:18:02.995 --> 00:18:09.968
  • nothing in my name: ask,and you shall receive," why?
  • 00:18:10.002 --> 00:18:20.012
  • "So your joy can be full."
  • 00:18:20.412 --> 00:18:23.515
  • Oh, y'all don'thear what I'm saying.
  • 00:18:23.549 --> 00:18:28.187
  • He gives us a key to beingfree from depression:
  • 00:18:28.787 --> 00:18:32.891
  • receive what you ask forand joy will come.
  • 00:18:32.925 --> 00:18:39.565
  • Receive what you askfor and joy will come.
  • 00:18:39.598 --> 00:18:45.037
  • I can't make it nosimpler than that.
  • 00:18:46.205 --> 00:18:47.839
  • First of all, speakto your mountain.
  • 00:18:47.873 --> 00:18:50.475
  • And then, what is missing?
  • 00:18:50.509 --> 00:18:52.077
  • Ask for it.Ask for it.
  • 00:18:52.110 --> 00:18:56.148
  • Now, be careful thatyou're not asking
  • 00:18:56.748 --> 00:18:59.451
  • for what you thinkwill bring you joy.
  • 00:18:59.484 --> 00:19:02.988
  • "Lord, if you just giveme a 6'5" man,
  • 00:19:03.755 --> 00:19:05.857
  • then I can have some joy."
  • 00:19:05.891 --> 00:19:09.161
  • "Lord, give me with a woman withsome sure-enough curls,
  • 00:19:10.862 --> 00:19:14.399
  • curves, and I canhave some joy."
  • 00:19:14.433 --> 00:19:20.239
  • Uh-um.Uh-um.
  • 00:19:20.272 --> 00:19:23.008
  • Joy comes from whatyou know from God.
  • 00:19:26.378 --> 00:19:30.282
  • Ask for it.
  • 00:19:30.315 --> 00:19:32.050
  • I am always surprised the numberof people who are suffering
  • 00:19:32.084 --> 00:19:34.853
  • depression, and they have not,as Christian people, taken the
  • 00:19:34.886 --> 00:19:37.356
  • time to operate in a wonderful,wonderful gift and authority
  • 00:19:37.389 --> 00:19:41.660
  • that God has given 'em toask and you shall receive.
  • 00:19:41.693 --> 00:19:45.631
  • Now, that's the part,ask and receive, but
  • 00:19:45.664 --> 00:19:49.134
  • now your askingis based on grace.
  • 00:19:49.167 --> 00:19:53.138
  • Remember now, graceis the boundary
  • 00:19:53.171 --> 00:19:57.042
  • where your asking is concerned.
  • 00:19:57.075 --> 00:19:59.011
  • Lord, thank you forbringing this up.
  • 00:19:59.044 --> 00:20:00.946
  • You see, grace makes,faith takes, but
  • 00:20:00.979 --> 00:20:08.086
  • faith can't take whatgrace hasn't made.
  • 00:20:08.120 --> 00:20:11.089
  • So, if you ask him for somethingoutside of the boundaries of
  • 00:20:11.123 --> 00:20:14.159
  • what Jesus has made available,then faith can't take it,
  • 00:20:14.192 --> 00:20:19.264
  • and that's what happenwith a lotta folk.
  • 00:20:19.298 --> 00:20:20.766
  • "But I asked God for this,but it never did happen."
  • 00:20:20.799 --> 00:20:22.868
  • You're asking forsomething that was not
  • 00:20:22.901 --> 00:20:24.703
  • within the boundaries of grace.
  • 00:20:24.736 --> 00:20:26.805
  • For example, one lady was askingfor Gloria Copeland's husband,
  • 00:20:26.838 --> 00:20:30.909
  • Kenneth, and she calledherself, using her faith.
  • 00:20:30.942 --> 00:20:35.414
  • Set up a mock weddingand everything,
  • 00:20:35.447 --> 00:20:38.450
  • pretended that Kenneth wason the other side.
  • 00:20:38.483 --> 00:20:40.252
  • How many of you knowgrace didn't make that?
  • 00:20:40.285 --> 00:20:43.455
  • So, faith can't take that.
  • 00:20:43.488 --> 00:20:46.692
  • You gotta be careful alsothat your asking is not
  • 00:20:46.725 --> 00:20:51.296
  • within the circle ofself-centeredness.
  • 00:20:51.330 --> 00:20:56.001
  • Are you always asking God forstuff that's gonna give you the
  • 00:20:56.034 --> 00:21:01.873
  • advantage, or are you askingGod to help you to give somebody
  • 00:21:01.907 --> 00:21:05.210
  • else the advantage and thenit will boomerang back to you?
  • 00:21:05.243 --> 00:21:10.816
  • I hear this all the time.
  • 00:21:10.849 --> 00:21:12.284
  • "Well, you know, I asked,but didn't nothing happen,"
  • 00:21:12.317 --> 00:21:14.086
  • and you don't even examinethe whole situation.
  • 00:21:14.119 --> 00:21:15.687
  • Your asking mighthave been wrong.
  • 00:21:15.721 --> 00:21:17.022
  • Your motives mighthave been wrong.
  • 00:21:17.055 --> 00:21:19.257
  • You might've continuedto be a blessing blocker.
  • 00:21:19.291 --> 00:21:21.593
  • There are things that youwere doing that
  • 00:21:21.626 --> 00:21:22.994
  • kept blocking stufffrom coming in.
  • 00:21:23.028 --> 00:21:25.330
  • Pride was there, sograce couldn't flow.
  • 00:21:25.364 --> 00:21:28.166
  • There are all kinds ofreasons why and the problem
  • 00:21:28.200 --> 00:21:31.903
  • was is that you probably didn'tknow enough to be able
  • 00:21:31.937 --> 00:21:35.340
  • to do what needed to be done.
  • 00:21:35.374 --> 00:21:38.076
  • Well, is it that difficult?It really isn't.
  • 00:21:38.110 --> 00:21:40.412
  • He said, "Up to now you hadn'tasked me anything in my name,"
  • 00:21:40.445 --> 00:21:43.548
  • or use your authority here:ask, and you shall receive.
  • 00:21:43.582 --> 00:21:47.719
  • So, what's within the realmof his--of the authority
  • 00:21:47.753 --> 00:21:50.288
  • that God has given you?
  • 00:21:50.322 --> 00:21:51.656
  • Ask.
  • 00:21:51.690 --> 00:21:53.125
  • Certainly, freedomfrom depression is there.
  • 00:21:53.158 --> 00:21:55.894
  • Certainly, deliverance fromsickness and disease
  • 00:21:55.927 --> 00:21:57.963
  • in your physical body is there.
  • 00:21:57.996 --> 00:22:00.132
  • Certainly, your needs beingmet and so forth, it's there.
  • 00:22:00.165 --> 00:22:03.802
  • Certainly, having rightrelationships and

  • all that stuff is there.
  • 00:22:05.570 --> 00:22:07.806
  • "Lord, I ask you tomake me a millionaire."
  • 00:22:07.839 --> 00:22:09.841
  • I don't know about all that,but I know that God will provide
  • 00:22:09.875 --> 00:22:14.613
  • everything that you need,whether it's with money
  • 00:22:14.646 --> 00:22:17.249
  • or whether it's with favor.

  • what you ask for by faithso that your joy can be full?
  • 00:22:34.466 --> 00:22:38.770
  • So, every time depression comesup--my depression issue
  • 00:22:38.804 --> 00:22:41.473
  • didn't stop the firsttime I said the Word.
  • 00:22:41.506 --> 00:22:45.977

  • in 15 minutes, and I said,"All right, come on.
  • 00:23:11.503 --> 00:23:13.872
  • Make some more confession."
