  • at you that way.
  • 00:00:02.230 --> 00:00:04.020
  • God doesn't mark you with those mistakes.
  • 00:00:04.030 --> 00:00:06.050
  • Those are just pieces of marble around your David and God is
  • 00:00:06.060 --> 00:00:11.240
  • gonna continue to chip away at-- those things are not you.
  • 00:00:11.250 --> 00:00:15.100
  • Those are the things that are trying to keep you bound inside
  • 00:00:15.110 --> 00:00:19.050
  • and keep you hidden inside and God is breaking those things
  • 00:00:19.060 --> 00:00:23.290
  • out of you.
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:25.100
  • That's why he brought you here today, that's
  • 00:00:25.110 --> 00:00:26.200
  • why you're here today.
  • 00:00:26.210 --> 00:00:28.000
  • So that you can be awakened to the greatness.
  • 00:00:28.010 --> 00:00:30.010
  • 00:00:30.290 --> 00:00:40.280
  • 00:00:40.290 --> 00:00:50.290
  • Gregory: I want to talk about your calling,
  • 00:00:51.090 --> 00:00:52.200
  • finding your calling, discovering your calling.
  • 00:00:52.210 --> 00:00:55.000
  • You know, the Bible says in Romans chapter 8, verse 37,
  • 00:00:55.010 --> 00:00:58.060
  • and I'll read this to you from I think the King James Bible, The
  • 00:00:58.070 --> 00:01:01.130
  • New King James Bible, says, "Yet in all these things we are more
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:05.060
  • than conquerors through him who loved us."
  • 00:01:05.070 --> 00:01:08.250
  • In all these things, in all these things we are more
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:13.010
  • than conquerors.
  • 00:01:13.020 --> 00:01:14.120
  • So God wants us to conquer some things.
  • 00:01:14.130 --> 00:01:16.180
  • There are some things that God wants us to conquer because
  • 00:01:16.190 --> 00:01:20.270
  • in all these things that he's talking about here: death, life,
  • 00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:24.060
  • angels, principalities, powers, things present, things to come.
  • 00:01:24.070 --> 00:01:27.000
  • All the things he's talking about, the persecution,
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:29.130
  • the suffering, he says in all these things we are more than
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:33.180
  • conquerors through him that loved us.
  • 00:01:33.190 --> 00:01:35.200
  • So, because of his love as expressed on the cross, as
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:40.220
  • expressed in his sacrifice, as expressed through his blood, all
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:46.130
  • that love causes us to become something that we weren't
  • 00:01:46.140 --> 00:01:51.160
  • before God showed us his love.
  • 00:01:51.170 --> 00:01:54.070
  • God's always loved us, but he shows us his love
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:57.270
  • and demonstrates his love in that while we were
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:02:00.160
  • yet sinners Christ died for the ungodly.
  • 00:02:00.170 --> 00:02:03.130
  • Aren't you glad he died for you, amen?
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:05.260
  • And in doing that by showing us his love.
  • 00:02:05.270 --> 00:02:09.200
  • He makes us something, he makes us something that we
  • 00:02:09.210 --> 00:02:13.090
  • weren't before.
  • 00:02:13.100 --> 00:02:14.190
  • We work conquerors before, we were less than
  • 00:02:14.200 --> 00:02:16.280
  • conquerors before.
  • 00:02:16.290 --> 00:02:18.090
  • We were the conquered: we were conquered by our sin, we were
  • 00:02:18.100 --> 00:02:21.040
  • conquered by our pain, we were conquered by our mistakes, we
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:24.110
  • were conquered by the devil, we were conquered by ourselves,
  • 00:02:24.120 --> 00:02:27.260
  • but that's what we were before we were born again
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:30.270
  • but after we're born again he makes us something different
  • 00:02:30.280 --> 00:02:34.040
  • than what we were.
  • 00:02:34.050 --> 00:02:35.140
  • He--we were the conquered, now we're more than conquerors, why?
  • 00:02:35.150 --> 00:02:39.250
  • Through his love.
  • 00:02:39.260 --> 00:02:41.050
  • We're not more than conquerors because we conquer, we're more
  • 00:02:41.060 --> 00:02:44.150
  • than conquerors because of his love.
  • 00:02:44.160 --> 00:02:48.070
  • Your calling is found in your conquering.
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:52.040
  • Your calling is found in your conquering.
  • 00:02:52.050 --> 00:02:54.190
  • I began to say that several years ago when I realized in my
  • 00:02:54.200 --> 00:02:58.020
  • life--as I look back at my life, I saw that the very thing
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:03:03.020
  • that God had called me to was right in front of me but I was
  • 00:03:03.030 --> 00:03:08.170
  • living in fear and my limitations and my image
  • 00:03:08.180 --> 00:03:12.260
  • of myself and the fears that I had were preventing me
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:18.060
  • from moving forward and the thing that was right
  • 00:03:18.070 --> 00:03:21.100
  • in front of me and the worst fear or the worst the worst
  • 00:03:21.110 --> 00:03:25.210
  • thing that I could think of that could happen in my life was
  • 00:03:25.220 --> 00:03:30.080
  • the very thing that God was wanting me to conquer to find
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:34.250
  • my calling.
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:36.060
  • 'Cause your calling is found in your conquering.
  • 00:03:36.070 --> 00:03:38.210
  • In other words, unless you learn to conquer the thing that is
  • 00:03:38.220 --> 00:03:43.170
  • coming against you, unless you learn to overcome the thing that
  • 00:03:43.180 --> 00:03:48.010
  • is threatening your power and your potential then you'll
  • 00:03:48.020 --> 00:03:51.270
  • never move forward in your calling, you'll never move
  • 00:03:51.280 --> 00:03:54.250
  • forward in your conquering but as you move forward
  • 00:03:54.260 --> 00:03:57.260
  • and conquering the things that are in front of you, you will
  • 00:03:57.270 --> 00:04:00.290
  • continue to move one step closer to your calling.
  • 00:04:01.000 --> 00:04:04.140
  • See, a lot of people want God to show them their calling: What
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:08.080
  • does my life mission?
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:09.180
  • What is my life calling?
  • 00:04:09.190 --> 00:04:11.020
  • And I've discovered that your life mission and your life--my
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:14.010
  • life mission and my life calling is to conquer the very thing
  • 00:04:14.020 --> 00:04:17.070
  • that is in front of me.
  • 00:04:17.080 --> 00:04:18.170
  • The very thing in front of me is the assignment that I have.
  • 00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:21.160
  • When you can say with confidence, "This is what
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:23.230
  • I was born to do," there's nothing like it.
  • 00:04:23.240 --> 00:04:25.290
  • Boy, when somebody says that, whether it's an athlete
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:29.050
  • or somebody who's in business or somebody who's in science
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:33.040
  • or somebody who's a doctor and they come to a place where
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:36.020
  • they where they're not just doing that as a profession, they
  • 00:04:36.030 --> 00:04:39.120
  • truly believe this is what they were born to do, boy, it makes
  • 00:04:39.130 --> 00:04:42.060
  • us think for a moment.
  • 00:04:42.070 --> 00:04:43.170
  • It sometimes makes us jealous to be honest when you hear
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:46.070
  • somebody say, "I'm doing what I was born to do," and you're
  • 00:04:46.080 --> 00:04:48.070
  • thinking, man, I'm not doin' what I was born to do, Somebody
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.200
  • said the other day, I'm doing what I love to do or somebody
  • 00:04:50.210 --> 00:04:54.110
  • told me they weren't doing what they love to do.
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:56.170
  • And I said I wonder how many of us are doing what we love
  • 00:04:56.180 --> 00:05:00.060
  • to do, I wonder how many of us love doing what we do?
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:02.250
  • I wonder if the reason we don't all love what we're doing is
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:06.130
  • because we're missing the point and we're thinking we're
  • 00:05:06.140 --> 00:05:08.190
  • supposed to love the job that the job is where our fulfillment
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:11.200
  • is, the title is where fulfillment is, the career
  • 00:05:11.210 --> 00:05:14.190
  • or the path we've chosen is where fulfillment is and that
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:17.170
  • will never fulfill you whether you're a president, whether
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:19.180
  • you're a doctor, whether you're a lawyer, whether you're
  • 00:05:19.190 --> 00:05:21.210
  • a teacher, whether your business developer, whatever you are
  • 00:05:21.220 --> 00:05:24.110
  • in life will never satisfy you.
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:26.140
  • What will satisfy you is when you realize, number one, you are
  • 00:05:26.150 --> 00:05:29.150
  • more than a conqueror and number two you go forth conquering
  • 00:05:29.160 --> 00:05:32.280
  • the four things that I'm talkin' about today that you were
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:35.080
  • created to conquer.
  • 00:05:35.090 --> 00:05:36.180
  • And when you walk in your conquering mode of those things,
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:41.090
  • every time you conquer you come one step closer to your ultimate
  • 00:05:41.100 --> 00:05:46.050
  • life calling.
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:47.160
  • So, you know what?
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:48.260
  • I'm not tryin' to figure it all out, I'm just gonna learn how
  • 00:05:48.270 --> 00:05:50.110
  • to conquer these four things and as I conquer these four
  • 00:05:50.120 --> 00:05:53.060
  • things I'm stepping into my destiny.
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:55.090
  • Every time I conquer one of these four things I'm moving
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:57.290
  • in God's will, I'm moving in my destiny.
  • 00:05:58.000 --> 00:06:00.200
  • Oh, it's very powerful and it's very liberating and it will set
  • 00:06:00.210 --> 00:06:04.170
  • you free.
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:05.280
  • You know, Michelangelo is by far in my opinion, the greatest
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:09.160
  • artist that ever lived besides God himself and Michelangelo his
  • 00:06:09.170 --> 00:06:13.270
  • greatest--well, one of his greatest feats was the
  • 00:06:13.280 --> 00:06:18.100
  • statue of David.
  • 00:06:18.110 --> 00:06:19.200
  • It sits in a museum in Florence, Italy today, and it's the most
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:22.280
  • glorious statue that you'll ever see.
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:25.190
  • In fact, they say that there's little plaque underneath it.
  • 00:06:25.200 --> 00:06:28.070
  • It says once you've seen this you will not want to look at any
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:31.160
  • of the other displays in this entire museum
  • 00:06:31.170 --> 00:06:34.120
  • and you really don't.
  • 00:06:34.130 --> 00:06:35.220
  • You don't care.
  • 00:06:35.230 --> 00:06:37.030
  • That's the only reason to go, the only thing we're seeing,
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:39.140
  • and when you see it you marvel at it but what Michelangelo did
  • 00:06:39.150 --> 00:06:43.100
  • to achieve this beautiful statue of David was he didn't turn
  • 00:06:43.110 --> 00:06:48.030
  • a marble block into a person.
  • 00:06:48.040 --> 00:06:50.290
  • He saw David in the block while it was damaged, while it was
  • 00:06:51.000 --> 00:06:56.030
  • broken marble, while I was in a excavation pit where they
  • 00:06:56.040 --> 00:07:00.140
  • said nobody can make anything out of this.
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:03.180
  • It was thrown away.
  • 00:07:03.190 --> 00:07:04.280
  • He found it thrown away and other artists, contemporary
  • 00:07:04.290 --> 00:07:08.200
  • artists in that day mocked him and said this thing is useless,
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:13.210
  • this is a piece of marble that is of no value, but Michelangelo
  • 00:07:13.220 --> 00:07:18.180
  • saw David in it.
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:20.070
  • Michelangelo didn't make David from it, Michelangelo saw David
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:24.130
  • in it and then chipped away at the marble pieces until
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:28.200
  • David emerged.
  • 00:07:28.210 --> 00:07:30.010
  • David was always there.
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:31.210
  • In Michelangelo's eyes, he saw him.
  • 00:07:31.220 --> 00:07:33.060
  • When he looked at that damaged block of marble, he saw David.
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:36.260
  • Everybody else just saw damage; he saw David.
  • 00:07:36.270 --> 00:07:39.260
  • And the reason I say that to you is because when you look
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:43.120
  • at yourself you might just see damage, you might just see
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:46.050
  • your weakness.
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:47.150
  • When you think of what other people think of you when they
  • 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:48.260
  • look at you they might just see a damage piece of marble too,
  • 00:07:48.270 --> 00:07:51.210
  • but God doesn't see that.
  • 00:07:51.220 --> 00:07:53.030
  • God sees David in you.
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:54.220
  • God sees greatness in you.
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:56.100
  • God sees the angel in you.
  • 00:07:56.110 --> 00:07:58.000
  • God sees the power in you.
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.200
  • God sees the calling in you.
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:01.110
  • God sees this hero, this champion, this man or woman
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:05.010
  • of God.
  • 00:08:05.020 --> 00:08:06.110
  • He sees you in your calling and he sees you in your
  • 00:08:06.120 --> 00:08:08.290
  • completeness and he sees you in your destiny and he sees
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:12.090
  • the potential in you.
  • 00:08:12.100 --> 00:08:13.200
  • And everything is happening in your life right now, today,
  • 00:08:13.210 --> 00:08:16.030
  • for those that trust Jesus, right now what's happening
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:18.180
  • in your life is things are getting chipped away by God, not
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:21.110
  • because he's tryin' to inflict pain upon you, but he's tryin'
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:24.030
  • to chip away the things that are preventing you from seeing who
  • 00:08:24.040 --> 00:08:27.270
  • you really are.
  • 00:08:27.280 --> 00:08:29.070
  • And he's chipping away at the things that are
  • 00:08:29.080 --> 00:08:30.180
  • preventing others from seeing who you really are because
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:33.090
  • there's a David inside of you.
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:34.240
  • There's a giant inside of you.
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:36.120
  • There's a greatness inside of you.
  • 00:08:36.130 --> 00:08:38.040
  • There's power inside of you and God is going to great
  • 00:08:38.050 --> 00:08:41.060
  • lengths to bring you to a church that's chipping away
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:44.010
  • at the false images of yourself, chipping away at the roughness
  • 00:08:44.020 --> 00:08:47.160
  • in your life.
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:48.260
  • You know what?
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:50.070
  • You know why you ran into Sister Sandpaper?
  • 00:08:50.080 --> 00:08:51.180
  • Is because you needed to be smoothed off a little and you
  • 00:08:51.190 --> 00:08:54.140
  • can use some rough edges smooth?
  • 00:08:54.150 --> 00:08:56.010
  • You know the reason why you ended up being roommates
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:08:58.140
  • in college with Brother Rub or Sister Sandpaper is because
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:09:01.260
  • that person was the best thing that could get the rough edges
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:06.150
  • off of you so the real you could begin to emerge.
  • 00:09:06.160 --> 00:09:09.040
  • But when you run from that stuff, when you run from church,
  • 00:09:09.050 --> 00:09:12.150
  • when you run from giving, when you run from your fears, when
  • 00:09:12.160 --> 00:09:15.240
  • you run from serving, when you run from volunteering, when you
  • 00:09:15.250 --> 00:09:19.060
  • run from sharing your faith, when you run from those things,
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:21.230
  • you're running from your calling.
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:23.060
  • Your like Jonah jumping in the water hoping that that
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:26.190
  • you can escape the calling that God has on your life and it
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:29.190
  • doesn't have to be a calling to preach it's just a calling
  • 00:09:29.200 --> 00:09:31.200
  • to greatness.
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:33.000
  • It's a calling to your destiny, it's a calling to fulfill
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:35.060
  • the ultimate potential to be the best version of yourself,
  • 00:09:35.070 --> 00:09:37.240
  • but when you run from it, you can't ever get to it.
  • 00:09:37.250 --> 00:09:40.030
  • When you run from it, you're not giving
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:41.270
  • God anything to work with.
  • 00:09:41.280 --> 00:09:43.070
  • Run to it.
  • 00:09:43.080 --> 00:09:44.180
  • Realize this: you're gonna be afraid sometimes, it's gonna
  • 00:09:44.190 --> 00:09:47.160
  • feel--it's gonna feel scary sometimes.
  • 00:09:47.170 --> 00:09:49.240
  • You feel like you're taking a risk sometime: tithing,
  • 00:09:49.250 --> 00:09:52.150
  • forgiving somebody, writing that letter of apology, going
  • 00:09:52.160 --> 00:09:56.210
  • to somebody and telling them about Jesus or just handing 'em,
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:09:59.050
  • a little card inviting them to church or inviting them
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:02.120
  • to hear the gospel in a little short paragraph.
  • 00:10:02.130 --> 00:10:04.280
  • Let me tell you something, every one of those things that your
  • 00:10:04.290 --> 00:10:07.180
  • heartbeats rapidly about and you run from, are the very thing
  • 00:10:07.190 --> 00:10:11.080
  • that you should run to because that will bring you one step
  • 00:10:11.090 --> 00:10:14.050
  • closer to your calling, to your destiny,
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:17.070
  • to your ultimate potential.
  • 00:10:17.080 --> 00:10:18.180
  • And I'm tellin' you inside of you his greatness and you
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:22.130
  • need to let the Word of God chip away at wrong thinking.
  • 00:10:22.140 --> 00:10:25.230
  • Let it chip away at your fears, let it chip away at your
  • 00:10:25.240 --> 00:10:28.280
  • worries, let a chip away at your self hatred, let it chip away
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:32.160
  • at your low self-worth.
  • 00:10:32.170 --> 00:10:33.270
  • Let it chip away until you realize I'm God's child, I'm
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:37.070
  • a masterpiece, there's a David in me, there's greatness in me,
  • 00:10:37.080 --> 00:10:40.130
  • there's power in me, there's anointing in me,
  • 00:10:40.140 --> 00:10:42.280
  • there's a purpose in me.
  • 00:10:42.290 --> 00:10:45.290
  • I hate to use this word because it doesn't quite capture it
  • 00:10:50.200 --> 00:10:53.160
  • but to reinvent ourselves, but we're not actually doing
  • 00:10:53.170 --> 00:10:57.010
  • the reinventing, God has reinvented us, he is recreated
  • 00:10:57.020 --> 00:11:00.190
  • us--that's what it means to be born again, and then he gives us
  • 00:11:00.200 --> 00:11:03.210
  • his Word to renew our minds to adopt his view of him and his
  • 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:11.200
  • view of ourselves because anything else is idolatry.
  • 00:11:11.210 --> 00:11:17.030
  • Let me tell you somethin,' sometimes we think idolatry is
  • 00:11:17.040 --> 00:11:22.090
  • like worshiping some other god but idolatry is having any other
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:26.080
  • image of yourself other than the view and the image that God
  • 00:11:26.090 --> 00:11:30.100
  • has of you.
  • 00:11:30.110 --> 00:11:31.200
  • So if you think you're a loser, that's idolatry because it's
  • 00:11:31.210 --> 00:11:35.070
  • contrary to what God thinks about you.
  • 00:11:35.080 --> 00:11:37.120
  • God thinks you're a winner.
  • 00:11:37.130 --> 00:11:39.040
  • God thinks you're the head and not the tail.
  • 00:11:39.050 --> 00:11:41.100
  • God thinks you're above only and not beneath.
  • 00:11:41.110 --> 00:11:43.150
  • So, anytime you accept a different belief about you,
  • 00:11:43.160 --> 00:11:47.270
  • even if it sounds humble, it's idolatry because it doesn't line
  • 00:11:47.280 --> 00:11:53.100
  • up with God's image of you, God's view of you, the David
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:57.120
  • inside of you.
  • 00:11:57.130 --> 00:11:59.230
  • So what do we do?
  • 00:11:59.240 --> 00:12:01.270
  • If our calling is found in our conquering then what are
  • 00:12:01.280 --> 00:12:05.060
  • the things that we're supposed to conquer?
  • 00:12:05.070 --> 00:12:06.290
  • In all these things we're more than conquerors.
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:08.200
  • So what are the things we're supposed to conquer?
  • 00:12:08.210 --> 00:12:10.280
  • Number one, first we must conquer our past.
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:14.000
  • We must conquer our past.
  • 00:12:14.010 --> 00:12:15.240
  • How do we do that?
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:17.040
  • I'm not saying to crawl into a fetal position and go see
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:20.010
  • a therapist and make sure that you, you know, just return
  • 00:12:20.020 --> 00:12:23.050
  • to your baby state and try to get healed from the inner
  • 00:12:23.060 --> 00:12:26.110
  • wounds of your life when you were three months old, three
  • 00:12:26.120 --> 00:12:29.130
  • weeks old, in the mother's womb, outside of the mother's womb.
  • 00:12:29.140 --> 00:12:32.040
  • No, what I'm talkin' about is conquering the the image you
  • 00:12:32.050 --> 00:12:37.280
  • have of yourself that was shaped by your past.
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:41.000
  • So, look, our upbringing, our weaknesses will condition us
  • 00:12:41.010 --> 00:12:47.080
  • to stay small, to stay limited, to stay insecure, and
  • 00:12:47.090 --> 00:12:50.220
  • to stay lonely.
  • 00:12:50.230 --> 00:12:52.020
  • They did to me anyway, and the DNA of our past.
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:57.030
  • You see, your past programs you to a future that looks just
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:13:03.190
  • like it in a mature form.
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:06.170
  • And so, we can't let the DNA of our past program our future.
  • 00:13:06.180 --> 00:13:10.220
  • We have to obliterate the DNA of our past.
  • 00:13:10.230 --> 00:13:14.090
  • We have to be willing to realize that even though our parents
  • 00:13:14.100 --> 00:13:18.240
  • probably all tried their best, we grew up with mindsets,
  • 00:13:18.250 --> 00:13:23.260
  • whether we adopted them from our parents, whether we adopt them
  • 00:13:23.270 --> 00:13:26.250
  • from school or from others, we grew up with mindsets that
  • 00:13:26.260 --> 00:13:30.070
  • define us and limit us and God wants to obliterate those
  • 00:13:30.080 --> 00:13:33.120
  • so that there are no limits.
  • 00:13:33.130 --> 00:13:35.140
  • So that there are no mindsets that control you or cage you
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:39.210
  • or keep you from passing through that invisible fence
  • 00:13:39.220 --> 00:13:43.170
  • that keeps shocking you every time you get near it.
  • 00:13:43.180 --> 00:13:46.000
  • I'm gonna tell you right now you gotta first conquer your past:
  • 00:13:46.010 --> 00:13:49.230
  • life, history, people's expectations, your education.
  • 00:13:49.240 --> 00:13:55.050
  • These are all things from your past that to try to program you
  • 00:13:55.060 --> 00:13:58.110
  • and try to determine your future.
  • 00:13:58.120 --> 00:14:00.240
  • And that's okay if your history is great, if your education was
  • 00:14:00.250 --> 00:14:04.140
  • supreme, if your expectations have always been high, and if
  • 00:14:04.150 --> 00:14:08.010
  • your upbringing was perfect.
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:10.030
  • But for most of us it's not so.
  • 00:14:10.040 --> 00:14:14.130
  • So, what do we do?
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:16.050
  • We have to disengage from the preconceived images
  • 00:14:16.060 --> 00:14:20.230
  • and ideas that we've had of ourselves.
  • 00:14:20.240 --> 00:14:25.030
  • We have to be willing to make a deliberate break
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:30.120
  • from the patterns of those we grew up with
  • 00:14:30.130 --> 00:14:36.260
  • or of how we grew up.
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:39.140
  • See, that's the problem right there, that we never think
  • 00:14:39.150 --> 00:14:43.130
  • about it, because someone tells us not to dream.
  • 00:14:43.140 --> 00:14:48.050
  • Someone tells us not to imagine, someone tells us it can't be
  • 00:14:48.060 --> 00:14:52.090
  • done, someone tells us we'll never amount to that, someone
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:55.150
  • tells us you'll always be this or you'll always be that
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:58.140
  • or you'll never be rich or you'll never have a great
  • 00:14:58.150 --> 00:15:00.210
  • business or you could never start your own business or you
  • 00:15:00.220 --> 00:15:03.060
  • could never get married to the best kind of person
  • 00:15:03.070 --> 00:15:05.110
  • or you could never have--or you could never break that
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:07.150
  • addiction, or you'll never stop being depressed or you'll never
  • 00:15:07.160 --> 00:15:10.190
  • break that anxiety or you'll never be free from panic attack
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:13.230
  • or you'll never be free from that diabetes or you'll
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:15.250
  • never be free from that sickness.
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:17.090
  • Or what happened in your life and what you did, it'll mark you
  • 00:15:17.100 --> 00:15:20.010
  • the rest of your life and let me tell you something.
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:22.030
  • Let me tell you something, God doesn't look at you that way.
  • 00:15:22.040 --> 00:15:25.010
  • God doesn't mark you with those mistakes.
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:27.180
  • Those are just pieces of marble around your David and God is
  • 00:15:27.190 --> 00:15:33.070
  • gonna continue to chip away at-- those things are not you.
  • 00:15:33.080 --> 00:15:36.230
  • Those are the things that are trying to keep you bound inside
  • 00:15:36.240 --> 00:15:40.180
  • and keep you hidden inside and God is
  • 00:15:40.190 --> 00:15:44.120
  • breaking those things out of you.
  • 00:15:44.130 --> 00:15:45.230
  • That's why he brought you here today, that's why you're here
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:48.090
  • today, so that you can be awakened to the greatness.
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:51.160
  • The greatness that's inside of you, number one.
  • 00:15:51.170 --> 00:15:55.120
  • Number one, you gotta conquer your past.
  • 00:15:55.130 --> 00:15:57.250
  • You gotta conquer your past.
  • 00:15:57.260 --> 00:15:59.140
  • Your sins have been cleansed.
  • 00:15:59.150 --> 00:16:02.060
  • You've been washed by the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:03.260
  • Acknowledge the mistakes you made, acknowledge the mistakes
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:06.060
  • that were made against you, and then surround yourself
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:09.100
  • with people that are already in the future.
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:11.240
  • Received God's mercy, and then surround yourself
  • 00:16:11.250 --> 00:16:14.100
  • with the people that are already in the future that you want.
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:19.000
  • And stay away and pull away from the people that want
  • 00:16:19.010 --> 00:16:24.150
  • to keep you stuck in their past and your past.
  • 00:16:24.160 --> 00:16:28.180
  • Number two, we must conquer our pain.
  • 00:16:28.190 --> 00:16:31.030
  • We must conquer our pain.
  • 00:16:31.040 --> 00:16:33.150
  • I had a vision once of a man who had a knife in his side.
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:38.170
  • I saw this, somebody was talking to me and prophesying
  • 00:16:38.180 --> 00:16:42.080
  • and I saw this.
  • 00:16:42.090 --> 00:16:44.100
  • There was a knife in his side and it was stuck there and he
  • 00:16:44.110 --> 00:16:52.170
  • wouldn't pull it out.
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:54.090
  • The knife in his side--he wouldn't pull it out.
  • 00:16:54.100 --> 00:16:57.090
  • The knife represented the pain that others had brought into his
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:17:00.080
  • life, inflicted him with.
  • 00:17:00.090 --> 00:17:02.230
  • Yet inside of him were all these great treasures and great
  • 00:17:02.240 --> 00:17:06.140
  • things, including people that would come forth from his side
  • 00:17:06.150 --> 00:17:12.120
  • but everything that was inside of him couldn't come out because
  • 00:17:12.130 --> 00:17:17.020
  • the knife was still stuck in there, you see?
  • 00:17:17.030 --> 00:17:19.270
  • Sometimes you have to bleed a little so that the blood
  • 00:17:19.280 --> 00:17:23.080
  • and then the water can come out.
  • 00:17:23.090 --> 00:17:28.070
  • This taught me something since the knife was blocking
  • 00:17:28.080 --> 00:17:33.040
  • the flow of life from with it from within this person,
  • 00:17:33.050 --> 00:17:37.070
  • in this vision.
  • 00:17:37.080 --> 00:17:38.180
  • First, it told me that if we don't pull the knife
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:40.260
  • out and stop nursing our pain, no good can come forth
  • 00:17:40.270 --> 00:17:46.070
  • from our lives.
  • 00:17:46.080 --> 00:17:47.280
  • We will build our life around our pain rather than
  • 00:17:47.290 --> 00:17:52.140
  • pulling the knife out and making no excuses anymore for
  • 00:17:52.150 --> 00:17:56.190
  • our limitations.
  • 00:17:56.200 --> 00:18:00.130
  • We'll blame our failure to reach our potential on the knife
  • 00:18:00.140 --> 00:18:04.030
  • that's in our side.
  • 00:18:04.040 --> 00:18:05.180
  • It gives us a convenient excuse to not break free, to not break
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:11.010
  • out, to not break forth, to not breakthrough.
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:14.250
  • It gives us a convenient excuse to stay the same, it gives us
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:17.100
  • a convenient excuse to blame somebody else.
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:19.200
  • It gives us a convenient excuse to stay limited and defeated
  • 00:18:19.210 --> 00:18:22.220
  • and defined by our past.
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:24.210
  • The second thing it showed me was the wounds that
  • 00:18:24.220 --> 00:18:27.000
  • others create.
  • 00:18:27.010 --> 00:18:28.200
  • The wounds that others create are sometimes the only path
  • 00:18:28.210 --> 00:18:33.220
  • by which life can flow.
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:36.060
  • The wounds that others create actually create the hole
  • 00:18:36.070 --> 00:18:40.120
  • or the path for life to flow.
  • 00:18:40.130 --> 00:18:42.160
  • Consider Jesus for a moment on the cross when
  • 00:18:42.170 --> 00:18:46.050
  • the misinformed and the ignorant soldier stuck a knife in his
  • 00:18:46.060 --> 00:18:50.040
  • side or a sword in his side until what happened in John
  • 00:18:50.050 --> 00:18:53.250
  • chapter 19, verse 34?
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:55.180
  • Until this happened: until all the blood came out and then
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:19:00.020
  • the water came out.
  • 00:19:00.030 --> 00:19:01.120
  • You see, the blood in the water represent two things that came
  • 00:19:01.130 --> 00:19:04.160
  • out of Jesus's wound.
  • 00:19:04.170 --> 00:19:05.290
  • You know what that those two things are?
  • 00:19:06.000 --> 00:19:08.010
  • The blood represents the washing away of your sins.
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:11.060
  • All of them.
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:12.170
  • The blood washes away all your sins and the blood--unless
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:14.240
  • the blood was shed, unless the soldier put the sword
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:18.250
  • in Jesus's side, the blood would not have flowed out.
  • 00:19:18.260 --> 00:19:21.180
  • The water would not have flowed out.
  • 00:19:21.190 --> 00:19:23.020
  • The blood represents the washing away of all your sins
  • 00:19:23.030 --> 00:19:25.280
  • and the water represents the washing away of all
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:28.240
  • the mindsets that defined you, limited you, and kept you back.
  • 00:19:28.250 --> 00:19:32.200
  • You see, blood represents cleansing of your sins and water
  • 00:19:32.210 --> 00:19:36.150
  • represents the renewing of your mind, the washing away of old
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:39.200
  • ways of thinking that have limited you and have defeated
  • 00:19:39.210 --> 00:19:42.270
  • you all your life.
  • 00:19:42.280 --> 00:19:44.080
  • So, let the blood flow, pull the knife out, stop using it as
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:47.290
  • an excuse, stop letting it plug up all the life that's gonna
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:51.160
  • come out of you, the souls that are gonna become out of you,
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:53.220
  • the light, the destiny that's inside of you, the David that's
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:55.260
  • inside, you, the greatness that's inside of you.
  • 00:19:55.270 --> 00:19:57.190
  • Pull that knife out and stop being afraid of how bad it's
  • 00:19:57.200 --> 00:20:00.230
  • gonna hurt when you pull it out just like a get a splinter
  • 00:20:00.240 --> 00:20:03.060
  • out, it's gonna stay in there the whole time, it's gonna hurt
  • 00:20:03.070 --> 00:20:05.280
  • you deeper until you pull that thing out, but it hurts
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:07.180
  • when you pull it out.
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:08.280
  • Let me tell ya somethin', yes, it might hurt when you pull that
  • 00:20:08.290 --> 00:20:11.120
  • knife out, but what's gonna flow out of that is going to be life
  • 00:20:11.130 --> 00:20:14.290
  • and destiny and dreaming and greatness and David
  • 00:20:15.000 --> 00:20:18.110
  • and power and God's original intention and what God sees.
  • 00:20:18.120 --> 00:20:23.190
  • Stop putting your trust in-- and really we put our trust
  • 00:20:23.200 --> 00:20:26.250
  • in what people did to us by giving them power by saying
  • 00:20:26.260 --> 00:20:31.140
  • what they did to us is powerful and it's keeping me from my
  • 00:20:31.150 --> 00:20:35.020
  • future, but when we pull the knife out and say it doesn't
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:37.220
  • have power over me.
  • 00:20:37.230 --> 00:20:40.020
  • Let the blood flow, let the water flow, it doesn't have
  • 00:20:40.030 --> 00:20:42.210
  • power over me, pull the knife out, endure the pain,
  • 00:20:42.220 --> 00:20:46.010
  • and conquer the pain of pulling the knife out.
  • 00:20:46.020 --> 00:20:48.210
  • Conquer the pain of holding on to the blame game.
  • 00:20:48.220 --> 00:20:52.040
  • Stop the blame game.
  • 00:20:52.050 --> 00:20:53.140
  • It hurts to not blame anybody anymore.
  • 00:20:53.150 --> 00:20:56.000
  • It hurts sometimes to take responsibility for your--Oh, I
  • 00:20:56.010 --> 00:20:59.020
  • don't know if I'm in the right place here today.
  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:03.190
  • It hurts sometimes to take responsibility for your own life
  • 00:21:03.200 --> 00:21:07.090
  • and your own decisions, but when you realize you have the power
  • 00:21:07.100 --> 00:21:10.150
  • over your future not what happened in your past not what
  • 00:21:10.160 --> 00:21:13.210
  • pain has been inflicted upon you.
  • 00:21:13.220 --> 00:21:15.140
  • Pull the knife out, it does not have to control you anymore.
  • 00:21:15.150 --> 00:21:20.170
  • The wound of an ignorant and misguided Roman soldier
  • 00:21:20.180 --> 00:21:24.160
  • opened the way for blood to flow and new life to be born
  • 00:21:24.170 --> 00:21:27.250
  • and the wound that people have inflicted upon you does not stop
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:32.260
  • God's potential, it releases it.
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:36.280
  • When you have a different perspective about pain it can't
  • 00:21:36.290 --> 00:21:40.180
  • control me, it can't defeat me, it's only temporary.
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:44.220
  • 2 Corinthians 3:17 says-- or verse 2 Corinthians 4,
  • 00:21:44.230 --> 00:21:48.260
  • verse 17: "For momentary light affliction is
  • 00:21:48.270 --> 00:21:54.090
  • working inside of me."
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:55.190
  • Momentary light affliction is producing in us an eternal
  • 00:21:55.200 --> 00:21:59.150
  • weight of glory far beyond all comparison.
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:03.030
  • While we look not at the things which are seen but at the things
  • 00:22:03.040 --> 00:22:06.200
  • which are not seen, the things which are eternal.
  • 00:22:06.210 --> 00:22:14.040
  • We got to conquer our pain.
  • 00:22:14.050 --> 00:22:17.000
  • You conquer your pain by realizing it's been washed,
  • 00:22:17.010 --> 00:22:20.060
  • it's been healed, Jesus is your healer.
  • 00:22:20.070 --> 00:22:22.250
  • Ask him to heal you.
  • 00:22:22.260 --> 00:22:24.280
  • Don't be afraid of hurting.
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:27.130
  • Don't be afraid of the hurt of pulling the knife out.
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:31.280
  • Don't be afraid of the hurt that comes from forgiving, the hurt
  • 00:22:31.290 --> 00:22:37.030
  • that comes from releasing it, the hurt that comes from turning
  • 00:22:37.040 --> 00:22:41.190
  • it over to God.
  • 00:22:41.200 --> 00:22:43.050
  • Don't be afraid of forgiveness because it's not a feeling,
  • 00:22:43.060 --> 00:22:50.050
  • it's a decision.
  • 00:22:50.060 --> 00:22:52.150
  • It's a decision.
  • 00:22:52.160 --> 00:22:54.200
  • Don't forgive because you feel it, forgive because you choose
  • 00:22:54.210 --> 00:22:57.220
  • it, and you will be--and that's how you conquer, that's how you
  • 00:22:57.230 --> 00:23:05.050
  • conquer your pain.
  • 00:23:05.060 --> 00:23:07.010
  • Gregory: Well, thanks for watching today, and you
  • 00:23:11.060 --> 00:23:12.180
  • know, everyone wants to discover God's will and walk in their
  • 00:23:12.190 --> 00:23:16.220
  • God-given calling and destiny.
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:18.180
  • And as you heard today, our calling is found in our
  • 00:23:18.190 --> 00:23:21.070
  • conquering.
  • 00:23:21.080 --> 00:23:22.180
  • You know, there are four things that we've been given the power
  • 00:23:22.190 --> 00:23:25.150
  • to conquer and I talked about two of them today so make
  • 00:23:25.160 --> 00:23:27.280
  • sure to watch next week's program where I'm going to share
  • 00:23:27.290 --> 00:23:30.090
  • the remaining two as well.
  • 00:23:30.100 --> 00:23:31.230
  • But remember number one is we have the power
  • 00:23:31.240 --> 00:23:33.160
  • to conquer our past.
  • 00:23:33.170 --> 00:23:34.270
  • We have to replace the previous images and ideas we've had have
  • 00:23:34.280 --> 00:23:38.200
  • ourselves: defeated, sick, broken, abused.
  • 00:23:38.210 --> 00:23:42.020
  • Listen, that's what I'm here to help you do--dismantle those
  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:45.050
  • negative mindsets.
  • 00:23:45.060 --> 00:23:46.250
  • It's so vital to surround yourself with this kind
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:49.050
  • of teaching over and over again and the kind of people that are
  • 00:23:49.060 --> 00:23:52.040
  • already in the future that you want and that you're believing
  • 00:23:52.050 --> 00:23:54.230
  • God has for you.
  • 00:23:54.240 --> 00:23:56.030
  • And that's part of how you overcome your past.
  • 00:23:56.040 --> 00:23:58.280
  • We also have the power to conquer our pain.
  • 00:23:58.290 --> 00:24:02.100
  • We conquer our pain by receiving healing from Jesus and then
  • 00:24:02.110 --> 00:24:06.020
  • speaking to that pain, just like we'd speak to the mountain
  • 00:24:06.030 --> 00:24:08.190
  • to be removed.
  • 00:24:08.200 --> 00:24:10.000
  • And listen, it's easy to build our life around our pain, we get
  • 00:24:10.010 --> 00:24:12.190
  • used to it sometimes but you don't have to stay in it
  • 00:24:12.200 --> 00:24:15.130
  • somebody has got to hear this today.
  • 00:24:15.140 --> 00:24:16.280
  • This is for you today.
  • 00:24:16.290 --> 00:24:18.190
  • You don't have to remain in your pain.
  • 00:24:18.200 --> 00:24:21.050
  • It's God's will for you to overcome it, conquer it
  • 00:24:21.060 --> 00:24:24.020
  • beginning today and that's what brings you further and further
  • 00:24:24.030 --> 00:24:27.130
  • into God's will.
