  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:09.100 --> 00:00:12.100
  • WELL, GOD BLESS YOU. IT'S
  • 00:00:12.100 --> 00:00:13.250
  • ALWAYS A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:00:13.250 --> 00:00:15.020
  • HOMES. AND IF YOU'RE EVER IN
  • 00:00:15.020 --> 00:00:16.210
  • OUR AREA, PLEASE STOP BY AND
  • 00:00:16.210 --> 00:00:18.050
  • BE A PART OF ONE OF OUR
  • 00:00:18.050 --> 00:00:19.110
  • SERVICES. I PROMISE YOU WE'LL
  • 00:00:19.110 --> 00:00:20.280
  • MAKE YOU FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
  • 00:00:20.280 --> 00:00:22.270
  • BUT THANKS SO MUCH FOR TUNING
  • 00:00:22.270 --> 00:00:23.250
  • IN TODAY AND THANK YOU AGAIN
  • 00:00:23.250 --> 00:00:25.080
  • FOR COMING OUT.
  • 00:00:25.080 --> 00:00:26.060
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:26.060 --> 00:00:27.140
  • FUNNY. I HEARD ABOUT THIS
  • 00:00:27.140 --> 00:00:29.070
  • BURGLAR THAT BROKE INTO A HOUSE
  • 00:00:29.070 --> 00:00:30.260
  • ONE NIGHT. AS HE WAS STEALING
  • 00:00:30.260 --> 00:00:32.270
  • THE STEREO, HE HEARD A VOICE
  • 00:00:32.270 --> 00:00:34.270
  • SAYING, "JESUS IS WATCHING
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:36.270
  • YOU." HE FROZE IN HIS TRACKS.
  • 00:00:36.270 --> 00:00:39.100
  • SHINED HIS FLASHLIGHT AND SAW
  • 00:00:39.100 --> 00:00:40.190
  • A PARROT OVER IN THE CORNER.
  • 00:00:40.190 --> 00:00:43.120
  • HE SAID, "DID YOU SAY THAT TO
  • 00:00:43.120 --> 00:00:44.120
  • ME?" THE PARROT SAID, "YES, I'M
  • 00:00:44.120 --> 00:00:45.260
  • JUST TRYING TO WARN YOU."
  • 00:00:45.260 --> 00:00:47.210
  • HE SAID, "WARN ME? WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:00:47.210 --> 00:00:49.060
  • TALKING ABOUT? WHO ARE YOU?"
  • 00:00:49.060 --> 00:00:50.180
  • THE PARROT SAID, "MY NAME IS
  • 00:00:50.180 --> 00:00:52.000
  • MOSES." THE BURGLAR LAUGHED
  • 00:00:52.000 --> 00:00:54.030
  • AND SAID, "WHAT KIND OF CRAZY
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:55.140
  • PEOPLE WOULD NAME A PARROT
  • 00:00:55.140 --> 00:00:57.010
  • MOSES?" THE PARROT SAID, "THE
  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:00:58.220
  • SAME KIND OF PEOPLE THAT WOULD
  • 00:00:58.220 --> 00:01:00.030
  • NAME A 150-POUND ROTTWEILER
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:02.160
  • 'JESUS'." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:01:03.220 --> 00:01:06.220
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLE. SAY IT LIKE
  • 00:01:06.220 --> 00:01:07.110
  • YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:01:07.110 --> 00:01:08.140
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE. I AM WHAT IT
  • 00:01:08.140 --> 00:01:10.110
  • SAYS I AM. I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:12.060
  • I HAVE. I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I
  • 00:01:12.060 --> 00:01:13.250
  • CAN DO. TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT
  • 00:01:13.250 --> 00:01:16.040
  • THE WORD OF GOD. I BOLDLY
  • 00:01:16.040 --> 00:01:17.270
  • CONFESS: MY MIND IS ALERT. MY
  • 00:01:17.270 --> 00:01:20.010
  • HEART IS RECEPTIVE. I WILL
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:22.000
  • NEVER BE THE SAME. IN JESUS'
  • 00:01:22.070 --> 00:01:25.070
  • NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:25.070 --> 00:01:26.170
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:26.170 --> 00:01:28.010
  • ABOUT COUNTED BY THE CREATOR.
  • 00:01:28.010 --> 00:01:30.200
  • IT'S EASY TO GO THROUGH LIFE
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:31.290
  • FEELING DISQUALIFIED BECAUSE OF
  • 00:01:31.290 --> 00:01:34.260
  • THE MISTAKES WE'VE MADE OR
  • 00:01:34.260 --> 00:01:36.140
  • NEGATIVE THINGS PEOPLE HAVE
  • 00:01:36.140 --> 00:01:37.200
  • SPOKEN OVER US.
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:39.060
  • OR EVEN OUR OWN THOUGHTS TELLING
  • 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:40.210
  • US WHAT WE CAN'T BECOME.
  • 00:01:40.210 --> 00:01:42.220
  • IF WE'RE NOT CAREFUL, WE'LL COME
  • 00:01:42.220 --> 00:01:44.110
  • UP WITH EXCUSES AS TO WHY WE
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:46.110
  • CAN'T ACCOMPLISH OUR DREAMS, WHY
  • 00:01:46.110 --> 00:01:49.070
  • WE CAN'T RISE ANY HIGHER.
  • 00:01:49.070 --> 00:01:51.000
  • IN EFFECT, WE'RE COUNTING
  • 00:01:51.000 --> 00:01:51.200
  • OURSELVES OUT.
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:01:53.050
  • AND IN THE SCRIPTURE, THE
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:54.210
  • PROPHET SAMUEL CAME TO JESSE'S
  • 00:01:54.210 --> 00:01:56.060
  • HOUSE TO CHOOSE ONE OF HIS SONS
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:58.070
  • AS THE NEXT KING.
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:02:00.090
  • JESSE HAD 7 OF HIS 8 SONS LINED
  • 00:02:00.090 --> 00:02:02.060
  • UP. HE WAS SO PROUD OF THEM.
  • 00:02:02.060 --> 00:02:04.200
  • THEY WERE STRONG, TALENTED,
  • 00:02:04.200 --> 00:02:06.130
  • GOOD-LOOKING YOUNG MEN.
  • 00:02:06.130 --> 00:02:08.150
  • AND SAMUEL WAS ABOUT TO CHOOSE
  • 00:02:08.150 --> 00:02:10.070
  • THE OLDEST SON, ELIAB.
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:12.140
  • HE WAS BIG, MUSCULAR.
  • 00:02:12.140 --> 00:02:14.050
  • HE LOOKED LIKE HE JUST STEPPED
  • 00:02:14.050 --> 00:02:15.030
  • OUT OF A MOVIE.
  • 00:02:15.030 --> 00:02:16.150
  • BUT GOD SAID TO SAMUEL, "DON'T
  • 00:02:16.150 --> 00:02:17.270
  • JUDGE BY HIS APPEARANCE OR
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:20.030
  • HEIGHT FOR HE IS NOT THE ONE."
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:22.260
  • THE LORD DOESN'T SEE THINGS THE
  • 00:02:22.260 --> 00:02:24.090
  • WAY YOU SEE THEM.
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:25.250
  • PEOPLE JUDGE BY THE OUTSIDE BUT
  • 00:02:25.250 --> 00:02:27.210
  • GOD LOOKS ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:30.010
  • WHEN SAMUEL HEARD THIS, HE
  • 00:02:30.010 --> 00:02:31.130
  • CHANGED HIS MIND.
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:32.290
  • HE TOLD JESSE THAT IT WASN'T ANY
  • 00:02:32.290 --> 00:02:34.260
  • OF THOSE SONS.
  • 00:02:34.260 --> 00:02:36.140
  • WELL, JESSE HAD ANOTHER SON
  • 00:02:36.140 --> 00:02:37.170
  • NAMED DAVID.
  • 00:02:37.170 --> 00:02:39.240
  • HE WAS OUT IN THE SHEPHERD'S
  • 00:02:39.240 --> 00:02:40.260
  • FIELDS TAKING CARE OF THE SHEEP.
  • 00:02:40.260 --> 00:02:43.260
  • BUT IN JESSE'S MIND, DAVID
  • 00:02:43.260 --> 00:02:45.000
  • DIDN'T COUNT.
  • 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:46.100
  • HE WAS THE YOUNGEST.
  • 00:02:46.100 --> 00:02:47.270
  • DAVID WAS SMALL, NOT AS STRONG.
  • 00:02:47.270 --> 00:02:50.160
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE THE EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:02:50.160 --> 00:02:52.070
  • JESSE THOUGHT, "NO USE EVEN
  • 00:02:52.070 --> 00:02:53.170
  • BRINGING HIM IN. HE'LL NEVER
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:54.290
  • AMOUNT TO MUCH." BUT THE
  • 00:02:54.290 --> 00:02:56.130
  • MOMENT SAMUEL SAW DAVID, HE
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:58.180
  • SAID, "THAT'S THE ONE. HE'S THE
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:02:59.280
  • NEXT KING."
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:01.270
  • I'M SURE JESSE AND THE OTHER
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:03.200
  • BROTHERS NEARLY PASSED OUT;
  • 00:03:03.200 --> 00:03:05.230
  • THINKING, "ARE YOU KIDDING?
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:06.160
  • YOU MEAN IT'S DAVID?" THEY
  • 00:03:06.160 --> 00:03:07.240
  • DIDN'T COUNT HIM BUT THE GOOD
  • 00:03:07.240 --> 00:03:09.280
  • NEWS IS DAVID WAS COUNTED BY
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:11.290
  • THE CREATOR. GOD DOESN'T JUDGE
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:14.250
  • THE WAY PEOPLE JUDGE.
  • 00:03:14.250 --> 00:03:16.260
  • YOU MAY NOT HAVE THE MOST
  • 00:03:16.260 --> 00:03:18.010
  • TALENT, THE BEST LOOKS; COME
  • 00:03:18.010 --> 00:03:19.230
  • FROM THE MOST INFLUENTIAL
  • 00:03:19.230 --> 00:03:21.020
  • FAMILY. THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:03:21.020 --> 00:03:22.180
  • YOU'VE BEEN COUNTED BY THE ONE
  • 00:03:22.180 --> 00:03:24.000
  • WHO MATTERS MOST.
  • 00:03:24.000 --> 00:03:26.040
  • NOW MY CHALLENGE IS DON'T COUNT
  • 00:03:26.040 --> 00:03:27.290
  • YOURSELF OUT. I HEAR PEOPLE
  • 00:03:27.290 --> 00:03:29.270
  • SAY, "I'M TOO SMALL. I DON'T
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:31.220
  • HAVE A GOOD PERSONALITY. I COME
  • 00:03:31.220 --> 00:03:33.220
  • FROM THE WRONG FAMILY."
  • 00:03:33.220 --> 00:03:35.220
  • NO, WHEN GOD CREATED YOU, HE
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:37.210
  • PUT IN YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:40.040
  • TO FULFILL YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:03:40.040 --> 00:03:42.060
  • THAT MEANS IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT,
  • 00:03:42.060 --> 00:03:44.100
  • YOU DON'T NEED IT.
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:46.050
  • IF YOU NEEDED TO BE TALLER, YOU
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:47.190
  • WOULD BE TALLER.
  • 00:03:47.190 --> 00:03:49.090
  • IF YOU NEEDED MORE TALENT, YOU
  • 00:03:49.090 --> 00:03:50.230
  • WOULD HAVE MORE TALENT.
  • 00:03:50.230 --> 00:03:52.210
  • IF YOU NEEDED TO BE A DIFFERENT
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:53.240
  • NATIONALITY, YOU WOULD BE ONE.
  • 00:03:53.240 --> 00:03:55.290
  • YOU'RE NOT LACKING.
  • 00:03:55.290 --> 00:03:57.160
  • YOU DIDN'T GET SHORT-CHANGED.
  • 00:03:57.160 --> 00:03:59.070
  • YOU'VE BEEN FEARFULLY AND
  • 00:03:59.070 --> 00:04:00.250
  • WONDERFULLY MADE.
  • 00:04:00.250 --> 00:04:02.200
  • THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE HAS
  • 00:04:02.200 --> 00:04:04.060
  • EQUIPPED YOU, EMPOWERED YOU,
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:07.100
  • PUT SEEDS OF GREATNESS ON THE
  • 00:04:07.100 --> 00:04:08.160
  • INSIDE.
  • 00:04:08.160 --> 00:04:10.090
  • HE'S SAYING, "YOU'RE ONE OF A
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:11.160
  • KIND, A MASTERPIECE, YOU HAVE
  • 00:04:11.160 --> 00:04:13.120
  • WHAT IT TAKES."
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:15.030
  • HE'S QUALIFIED YOU; NOW DON'T
  • 00:04:15.030 --> 00:04:16.190
  • DISQUALIFY YOURSELF.
  • 00:04:16.190 --> 00:04:19.080
  • DON'T STAY FOCUSED ON WHAT
  • 00:04:19.080 --> 00:04:20.170
  • SOMEBODY ELSE CAN DO BETTER; HOW
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:22.030
  • YOUR SISTER HAS MORE TALENT,
  • 00:04:22.030 --> 00:04:23.260
  • YOUR FRIEND HAS A BETTER
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:25.060
  • PERSONALITY.
  • 00:04:25.060 --> 00:04:26.120
  • THAT MAY BE TRUE BUT YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:04:26.120 --> 00:04:27.240
  • RUNNING THEIR RACE.
  • 00:04:27.240 --> 00:04:29.250
  • YOU DON'T NEED WHAT THEY HAVE.
  • 00:04:29.250 --> 00:04:31.090
  • IF YOU NEEDED IT, GOD WOULD HAVE
  • 00:04:31.090 --> 00:04:32.200
  • GIVEN IT TO YOU.
  • 00:04:32.200 --> 00:04:34.100
  • AND WHEN THE THOUGHTS COME
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:35.030
  • TELLING YOU, "YOU'RE TOO TALL,
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:36.180
  • TOO SHORT; YOU'RE TOO YOUNG, TOO
  • 00:04:36.180 --> 00:04:38.160
  • OLD; YOU'RE NOT TALENTED ENOUGH,
  • 00:04:38.160 --> 00:04:40.160
  • NOT SMART ENOUGH," LET THAT GO
  • 00:04:40.160 --> 00:04:42.070
  • IN ONE EAR AND OUT THE OTHER.
  • 00:04:42.070 --> 00:04:44.080
  • IF YOU GO THROUGH LIFE FEELING
  • 00:04:44.080 --> 00:04:45.260
  • LIKE YOU'RE LACKING, YOU DON'T
  • 00:04:45.260 --> 00:04:47.060
  • MEASURE UP; EVEN THOUGH GOD HAS
  • 00:04:47.060 --> 00:04:49.130
  • QUALIFIED YOU, YOU ARE
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:51.100
  • DISQUALIFYING YOURSELVES.
  • 00:04:51.100 --> 00:04:53.170
  • AND SOMETIMES, IT'S NOT OUR OWN
  • 00:04:53.170 --> 00:04:54.260
  • THOUGHTS BUT LIKE DAVID, OTHER
  • 00:04:54.260 --> 00:04:56.280
  • PEOPLE WILL TRY TO DISCOUNT US,
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:59.080
  • MAKE US FEEL LESS THAN, LIKE WE
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:00.130
  • DON'T MEASURE UP.
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.060
  • AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED WITH
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:03.040
  • MY FATHER.
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:04.070
  • HE WAS RAISED IN A VERY POOR
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:05.210
  • FAMILY.
  • 00:05:05.210 --> 00:05:06.240
  • THEY WERE COTTON FARMERS.
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:08.100
  • THEY LOST EVERYTHING DURING THE
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:09.220
  • GREAT DEPRESSION.
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:11.130
  • AT 17 YEARS OF AGE, MY FATHER
  • 00:05:11.130 --> 00:05:13.100
  • GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST, THE
  • 00:05:13.100 --> 00:05:15.010
  • FIRST ONE IN THE FAMILY.
  • 00:05:15.010 --> 00:05:17.020
  • AND GOD CALLED HIM INTO THE
  • 00:05:17.020 --> 00:05:18.160
  • MINISTRY AND PUT A BIG DREAM IN
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:20.050
  • HIS HEART.
  • 00:05:20.050 --> 00:05:21.110
  • HE KNEW ONE DAY HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:05:21.110 --> 00:05:22.140
  • TOUCH THE WORLD.
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:23.290
  • HE TOLD HIS PARENTS, IN HIS LATE
  • 00:05:23.290 --> 00:05:25.180
  • TEENS, THAT HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:26.230
  • LEAVE THE FARM AND BECOME A
  • 00:05:26.230 --> 00:05:28.110
  • MINISTER.
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:30.030
  • HE THOUGHT THEY'D BE SO EXCITED,
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:31.080
  • SO HAPPY FOR HIM.
  • 00:05:31.080 --> 00:05:32.120
  • BUT IT WAS JUST THE OPPOSITE.
  • 00:05:32.120 --> 00:05:34.040
  • THEY SAID, "JOHN, YOU'RE MAKING
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:35.080
  • A BIG MISTAKE. WE LOVE YOU.
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:39.020

  • THE WORLD. WE'RE JUST COTTON

  • MONEY. YOU BETTER STAY HERE AND
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:46.280
  • PICK COTTON WITH US."
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:49.190
  • MY FATHER KNEW HE WAS DESTINED
  • 00:05:49.190 --> 00:05:51.090
  • TO DO SOMETHING GREAT BUT THEY
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:53.070
  • COULDN'T SEE IT.
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:54.090
  • THEY DISCOUNTED HIM.
  • 00:05:54.090 --> 00:05:56.060
  • THEY WERE SAYING, "JOHN, YOU'RE
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:57.020

  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:03.100
  • IF YOU ALLOW IT, PEOPLE WILL
  • 00:06:03.100 --> 00:06:05.020
  • PUT THEIR LIMITATIONS ON YOU.
  • 00:06:05.020 --> 00:06:07.100

  • YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:06:08.170 --> 00:06:10.130
  • ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I HAVE
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:11.210
  • EVER LEARNED IS PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:06:11.210 --> 00:06:13.120
  • DETERMINE OUR DESTINY, GOD DOES.
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:16.170
  • PEOPLE DON'T SET THE LIMITS FOR

  • IT AND TELL YOU WHAT YOU CAN'T
  • 00:06:20.280 --> 00:06:22.150
  • DO AND 'I DON'T THINK YOU'RE

  • THAT TALENTED'.
  • 00:06:23.170 --> 00:06:24.290
  • IT'S BECAUSE GOD DIDN'T PUT THE
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:26.230
  • DREAM IN THEM; HE PUT THE DREAM
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:28.240
  • IN YOU.
  • 00:06:28.240 --> 00:06:30.040

  • 00:06:36.110 --> 00:06:37.070
  • YOU HAVE.
  • 00:06:37.070 --> 00:06:38.180
  • THEY WILL TRY TO DISCOUNT YOU.
  • 00:06:38.180 --> 00:06:40.060
  • THOSE LIES. YOU DON'T NEED
  • 00:06:43.100 --> 00:06:44.110
  • THEIR APPROVAL. YOU HAVE GOD'S
  • 00:06:44.110 --> 00:06:45.270
  • APPROVAL.
  • 00:06:45.270 --> 00:06:47.160
  • THEY'LL DISCOUNT YOU BUT THE ONE
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:49.090
  • WHO MATTERS, THE ONE WHO SPOKE
  • 00:06:49.090 --> 00:06:51.070

  • GENERATION."
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:06.230
  • GOD HAS ALREADY COUNTED YOU.
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:08.210
  • NOW, DON'T LET OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:09.280
  • DISCOUNT YOU. IN LUKE,
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.290
  • CHAPTER 9, JESUS HAD BEEN
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:13.150
  • TEACHING THE PEOPLE FOR MOST OF
  • 00:07:13.150 --> 00:07:15.020
  • THE DAY. IT WAS GETTING LATE,
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:16.220
  • THE SUN WAS ABOUT TO GO DOWN
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:18.180
  • AND EVERYONE WAS VERY HUNGRY.
  • 00:07:18.180 --> 00:07:21.000
  • AND THE DISCIPLES CAME AND SAID,
  • 00:07:21.000 --> 00:07:22.160
  • "JESUS, YOU NEED TO DISMISS THE
  • 00:07:22.160 --> 00:07:24.010
  • PEOPLE. LET THEM GO FIND SOME
  • 00:07:24.010 --> 00:07:25.230
  • FOOD." THEY WERE OUT IN THE
  • 00:07:25.230 --> 00:07:27.090
  • MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:28.180
  • NOTHING TO EAT OUT THERE.
  • 00:07:28.180 --> 00:07:29.290
  • JESUS SAID TO THE DISCIPLES,
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:31.120
  • "YOU FEED THEM." THEY SAID,
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:33.020
  • "WHAT DO YOU MEAN? WE DON'T
  • 00:07:33.020 --> 00:07:34.050
  • HAVE ANYTHING TO EAT." JESUS
  • 00:07:34.050 --> 00:07:35.140
  • ASKED WHAT THEY HAD AND ALL
  • 00:07:35.140 --> 00:07:36.220
  • THEY COULD FIND WAS A LITTLE
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:38.040
  • BOY'S LUNCH. FIVE LOAVES OF
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:40.020
  • BREAD AND TWO FISH.
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:42.100
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THERE WERE
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:44.010
  • 5.000 MEN IN ATTENDANCE THAT
  • 00:07:44.010 --> 00:07:46.040
  • DAY. THAT MEANS THERE WERE
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:48.060
  • PROBABLY 15.000 PEOPLE IN TOTAL
  • 00:07:48.060 --> 00:07:51.030
  • IF YOU COUNTED THE WOMEN AND
  • 00:07:51.030 --> 00:07:52.050
  • THE CHILDREN.
  • 00:07:52.050 --> 00:07:53.290
  • JESUS TOOK THE LITTLE BOY'S
  • 00:07:53.290 --> 00:07:55.080
  • LUNCH, YOU KNOW THE STORY, AND
  • 00:07:55.080 --> 00:07:56.150
  • HE PRAYED OVER IT.
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:57.180
  • IT MULTIPLIED AND FED THE
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:07:59.160
  • THOUSANDS. THE POINT I WANT US
  • 00:07:59.190 --> 00:08:02.210
  • TO SEE IS THE ONE THAT ONE THAT
  • 00:08:02.210 --> 00:08:04.020
  • WASN'T COUNTED HAD THE MIRACLE.
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:06.110
  • THEY COUNTED THE MEN, THE 5.000,
  • 00:08:06.110 --> 00:08:08.140
  • BUT THEY DIDN'T COUNT THE
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:09.100
  • CHILDREN.
  • 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:10.210
  • THEY THOUGHT, "THEY'RE TOO
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:11.080
  • YOUNG. NO NEED TO COUNT THEM."
  • 00:08:11.080 --> 00:08:13.080
  • BACK IN THOSE DAYS, WOMEN WERE
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:15.040
  • SEEN AS SECOND CLASS, AS LESS
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:16.220
  • THAN.
  • 00:08:16.220 --> 00:08:18.010
  • THEY DIDN'T COUNT THE WOMEN.
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:19.280
  • BUT GOD USES PEOPLE THAT OTHER

  • PEOPLE DON'T COUNT.
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:24.080
  • ONE OF THE 5.000 MEN COULD HAVE

  • HAD A LUNCH.
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:26.210
  • ONE OF THE DISCIPLES COULD HAVE
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:27.250
  • BROUGHT SOMETHING TO EAT THAT

  • DAY.
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.110
  • BUT GOD CHOSE THIS CHILD
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:31.290
  • SPECIFICALLY TO LET US KNOW THAT
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:34.040
  • WHEN PEOPLE LEAVE YOU OUT AND
  • 00:08:34.040 --> 00:08:36.080
  • SAY, "YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO

  • OFFER", "YOU'RE TOO YOUNG",
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:39.070
  • "YOU'RE NOT IMPORTANT", "YOU

  • PRIME CANDIDATE FOR ME TO DO
  • 00:08:42.210 --> 00:08:44.090
  • SOMETHING GREAT.

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:49.260
  • SOMETIMES LIFE WILL SAY, "I'M

  • YOU'VE GOT THAT ADDICTION."
  • 00:08:56.070 --> 00:08:57.240
  • LIFE WILL TRY TO PUSH YOU DOWN,
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:08:59.100

  • COUNTS YOU OUT, GOD COUNTS YOU
  • 00:09:05.110 --> 00:09:08.030
  • IN.

  • DON'T COUNT.WHEN MY FATHER WENT
  • 00:09:10.130 --> 00:09:12.260
  • TO BE WITH THE LORD BACK IN
  • 00:09:12.260 --> 00:09:14.120
  • 1999, I KNEW I WAS SUPPOSED TO

  • STEP UP AND PASTOR THE CHURCH.
  • 00:09:16.110 --> 00:09:18.200
  • BUT I COULD HEAR THESE VOICES
  • 00:09:18.200 --> 00:09:20.010
  • TRYING TO DISCOUNT ME.
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:21.210
  • SAYING, "HE DOESN'T HAVE WHAT IT

  • HE HASN'T BEEN TO SEMINARY.
  • 00:09:23.240 --> 00:09:25.000
  • HE'S NOT QUALIFIED.

  • HE DOESN'T COUNT."
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:28.260
  • BUT DEEP DOWN, I COULD HEAR GOD
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:30.220
  • SAYING, "JOEL, DON'T WORRY.
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:32.170

  • HE DIDN'T CREATE YOU TO BE

  • AVERAGE, TO BE ORDINARY, TO JUST
  • 00:09:49.200 --> 00:09:51.210
  • MAKE IT THROUGH LIFE.
  • 00:09:51.210 --> 00:09:53.150
  • HE CREATED YOU TO EXCEL.
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:55.200
  • TO LEAVE YOUR FINGERPRINT, TO

  • ACCOMPLISH.
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:04.280
  • I THINK ABOUT MY FATHER.
  • 00:10:04.280 --> 00:10:06.230
  • HE WAS THE LEAST LIKELY ONE TO
  • 00:10:06.230 --> 00:10:08.030
  • DO SOMETHING GREAT.
  • 00:10:08.030 --> 00:10:10.010
  • IF GOD WERE LOOKING FOR A
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:10.280
  • PROMINENT PASTOR, SURELY HE
  • 00:10:10.280 --> 00:10:12.160
  • WOULD FIND SOMEONE WITH THE
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:14.140
  • APPROPRIATE BACKGROUND, THE
  • 00:10:14.140 --> 00:10:16.040
  • INFLUENCE, THE TRAINING, THE

  • WELL TO DO FAMILY.
  • 00:10:17.160 --> 00:10:18.270
  • THAT WOULD MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:20.200
  • BUT PAUL SAID IN CORINTHIANS GOD
  • 00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:23.050
  • DELIBERATELY CHOOSES THE LEAST
  • 00:10:23.050 --> 00:10:24.250
  • LIKELY TO CONFOUND THE WISE.
  • 00:10:25.030 --> 00:10:28.030
  • HE CHOOSES THE WEAK TO OUTSHINE
  • 00:10:28.030 --> 00:10:29.180
  • THE STRONG.
  • 00:10:29.180 --> 00:10:32.020
  • OUT OF THE 5.000 MEN LISTENING

  • TO JESUS THAT DAY, NO DOUBT,
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:36.030
  • SOME OF THEM WERE COMMUNITY

  • RESPECTED, INFLUENTIAL.
  • 00:10:39.080 --> 00:10:40.270
  • YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT AT LEAST
  • 00:10:40.270 --> 00:10:42.150
  • ONE OF THEM WOULD HAVE BROUGHT
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:43.180
  • AN ICE CHEST FILLED WITH
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:45.070
  • SANDWICHES, SNACKS, WATER.
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:48.040
  • THEY KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO BE

  • OUT IN THE COUNTRY ALL DAY LONG.
  • 00:10:49.020 --> 00:10:50.280
  • BUT THE ONE THAT HAD THE MIRACLE
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:52.100
  • WAS THE LEAST LIKELY, THE LITTLE
  • 00:10:52.100 --> 00:10:54.050
  • BOY.

  • REACHING YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL

  • BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE
  • 00:11:02.070 --> 00:11:03.220
  • LACKING IN SOME AREA?
  • 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:05.190
  • YOU DON'T COUNT.
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:07.000
  • NOW YOU'RE NOT PURSUING YOUR

  • YOU'RE NOT EXCITED ABOUT LIFE.

  • YOU MAY HAVE MADE MISTAKES, BUT

  • YOU DIDN'T GET DISQUALIFIED.
  • 00:11:37.050 --> 00:11:39.240
  • YOU MAY HAVE SOME FLAWS AND

  • YOU OUT.
  • 00:11:46.250 --> 00:11:47.280
  • THE ODDS ARE AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:11:47.280 --> 00:11:49.100
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS GOD IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:51.280
  • HE HAS THE FINAL SAY AND HE SAYS
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:54.210
  • "I COUNT YOU IN WHEN OTHER

  • PEOPLE COUNT YOU OUT."
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:57.280
  • NOW, YOU NEED TO GET READY.
  • 00:11:57.280 --> 00:11:59.020
  • THIS IS A NEW DAY.
  • 00:11:59.020 --> 00:12:00.210
  • YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE NEW DOORS
  • 00:12:00.210 --> 00:12:01.240
  • BEGIN TO OPEN.
  • 00:12:01.240 --> 00:12:03.090
  • GOD IS ABOUT TO MULTIPLY WHAT
  • 00:12:03.090 --> 00:12:04.210

  • HE'S GOING TO TAKE YOU FROM THE

  • BACK TO THE FRONT.
  • 00:12:07.070 --> 00:12:08.110
  • FROM LACK TO ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:12:08.110 --> 00:12:10.160
  • FROM INSIGNIFICANCE TO GREAT
  • 00:12:10.160 --> 00:12:12.140
  • INFLUENCE.
  • 00:12:12.140 --> 00:12:13.280
  • YOU'VE BEEN COUNTED.
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.040
  • YOU'VE BEEN QUALIFIED.
  • 00:12:15.040 --> 00:12:16.210
  • WHAT GOD SPOKE OVER YOUR LIFE
  • 00:12:16.210 --> 00:12:18.070
  • WILL COME TO PASS.
  • 00:12:18.070 --> 00:12:20.040
  • AND THOSE ARE NOT JUST NICE,
  • 00:12:20.040 --> 00:12:21.030
  • KIND, ENCOURAGING WORDS.
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:23.200
  • THAT'S A PROPHESY.
  • 00:12:23.200 --> 00:12:24.210
  • IF YOU'LL RECEIVE IT AND SAY,
  • 00:12:24.210 --> 00:12:25.230
  • "YES, THIS IS FOR ME," THEN
  • 00:12:25.230 --> 00:12:27.100
  • YOU'LL BEGIN TO SEE IT HAPPEN.
  • 00:12:27.100 --> 00:12:29.160
  • GOD WILL AMAZE YOU WITH HIS
  • 00:12:29.160 --> 00:12:30.030
  • GOODNESS.
  • 00:12:30.030 --> 00:12:32.010
  • YEARS AGO, THERE WAS A YOUNG
  • 00:12:32.010 --> 00:12:33.050
  • LADY THAT HAD A DREAM OF
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:35.200
  • BECOMING AN ACTRESS.
  • 00:12:35.200 --> 00:12:36.080
  • BUT THE PROBLEM WAS SHE WAS VERY
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:37.180
  • SMALL, UNDER 5 FEET TALL.
  • 00:12:37.180 --> 00:12:40.110
  • ALL THE EXPERTS TOLD HER SHE
  • 00:12:40.110 --> 00:12:41.210
  • WOULD NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL IN HER
  • 00:12:41.210 --> 00:12:42.270
  • FIELD BECAUSE OF HER HEIGHT.
  • 00:12:42.270 --> 00:12:45.180
  • AND THAT COULD HAVE BEEN THE END
  • 00:12:45.180 --> 00:12:46.070
  • OF THE STORY.
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:47.100
  • SHE MOVED ON AND TRIED SOMETHING
  • 00:12:47.100 --> 00:12:48.030
  • ELSE.
  • 00:12:48.030 --> 00:12:49.110
  • BUT THIS YOUNG LADY UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:12:49.110 --> 00:12:50.250
  • THIS PRINCIPAL.
  • 00:12:50.250 --> 00:12:52.050
  • SHE KNEW GOD USES PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:12:52.050 --> 00:12:54.110
  • OTHER PEOPLE DON'T COUNT.
  • 00:12:54.110 --> 00:12:56.230
  • SHE HAD BEEN DISQUALIFIED BY THE
  • 00:12:56.230 --> 00:12:58.090
  • EXPERTS BUT SHE KNEW SHE WAS
  • 00:12:58.090 --> 00:13:00.040
  • QUALIFIED BY THE ONE WHO
  • 00:13:00.040 --> 00:13:01.190
  • MATTERED MOST.
  • 00:13:01.190 --> 00:13:03.290
  • AGAINST ALL ODDS, SHE STARTED
  • 00:13:03.290 --> 00:13:05.160
  • GETTING CHOSEN FOR THIS ROLE AND
  • 00:13:05.160 --> 00:13:07.010
  • ANOTHER ROLE AND ANOTHER ROLE.
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:09.150
  • HELEN HAYES WENT ON TO BECOME
  • 00:13:09.150 --> 00:13:11.060
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST ACTRESSES OF
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:13.020
  • HER TIME.
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.200
  • AT ONE POINT, SHE PLAYED THE
  • 00:13:14.200 --> 00:13:16.050
  • VERY ACCLAIMED ROLE OF MARY,
  • 00:13:16.050 --> 00:13:18.200
  • QUEEN OF SCOTLAND, WHO WAS ONE
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:20.150
  • OF THE TALLEST QUEENS THAT EVER
  • 00:13:20.150 --> 00:13:21.230
  • LIVED.
  • 00:13:21.230 --> 00:13:23.140
  • FRIENDS, WHEN PEOPLE COUNT YOU
  • 00:13:23.140 --> 00:13:24.220
  • OUT, GOD COUNTS YOU IN.
  • 00:13:24.220 --> 00:13:26.170
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:27.290
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE, GOD TOLD
  • 00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:29.110
  • JEREMIAH THAT HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:13:29.110 --> 00:13:30.200
  • BECOME A GREAT PROPHET AND SPEAK
  • 00:13:30.200 --> 00:13:32.090
  • TO THE NATIONS.
  • 00:13:32.090 --> 00:13:33.280
  • JEREMIAH WAS YOUNG AND INSECURE.
  • 00:13:33.280 --> 00:13:35.260
  • HE SAID, "GOD I CAN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:13:35.260 --> 00:13:37.250
  • I'M TOO YOUNG.
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:39.120
  • I'M AFRAID TO GET UP IN FRONT OF
  • 00:13:39.120 --> 00:13:40.220
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:40.220 --> 00:13:41.190
  • I WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY."
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:43.140
  • GOD SAID, "JEREMIAH, SAY NOT
  • 00:13:43.140 --> 00:13:44.280
  • THAT YOU'RE TOO YOUNG.
  • 00:13:44.280 --> 00:13:46.180
  • SAY NOT THAT YOU'RE AFRAID."
  • 00:13:46.180 --> 00:13:48.230
  • HE WAS SAYING, "JEREMIAH, I
  • 00:13:48.230 --> 00:13:50.080
  • WOULDN'T HAVE ASKED YOU TO DO IT
  • 00:13:50.080 --> 00:13:52.010
  • IF I DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW YOU HAD
  • 00:13:52.010 --> 00:13:53.150
  • THE ABILITY."
  • 00:13:53.150 --> 00:13:55.260
  • DON'T LET NEGATIVE VOICES TALK
  • 00:13:55.260 --> 00:13:57.230
  • YOU OUT OF YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:13:57.230 --> 00:13:59.100
  • IF I'D GONE AROUND SAYING, "I
  • 00:13:59.100 --> 00:14:00.260
  • CAN'T PASTOR THAT CHURCH.
  • 00:14:00.260 --> 00:14:01.230
  • MAN, I'VE NEVER MINISTERED
  • 00:14:01.230 --> 00:14:02.240
  • BEFORE.
  • 00:14:02.240 --> 00:14:04.010
  • I DON'T HAVE THE TRAINING.
  • 00:14:04.010 --> 00:14:05.040
  • I DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT

  • PERSONALITY."
  • 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:06.240
  • IT WOULD HAVE KEPT ME FROM MY
  • 00:14:06.240 --> 00:14:07.230
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:14:07.230 --> 00:14:09.030
  • AND WHEN YOU SAY "I'M NOT THAT
  • 00:14:09.030 --> 00:14:10.160
  • TALENTED.
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:11.250
  • I MADE TOO MANY MISTAKES.
  • 00:14:11.250 --> 00:14:13.110
  • I DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT
  • 00:14:13.110 --> 00:14:14.090
  • PERSONALITY."
  • 00:14:14.090 --> 00:14:15.200
  • GOD SAYS TO YOU WHAT HE SAID TO
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:16.260
  • JEREMIAH.
  • 00:14:16.260 --> 00:14:18.190
  • ZIP IT UP.
  • 00:14:18.190 --> 00:14:19.270
  • SAY NOT "I'M TOO SHORT."
  • 00:14:19.270 --> 00:14:21.180
  • SAY NOT, "I DON'T HAVE THE
  • 00:14:21.180 --> 00:14:22.140
  • TALENT."
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:23.220
  • SAY NOT, "I CAN'T ACCOMPLISH MY
  • 00:14:23.220 --> 00:14:24.200
  • DREAMS."
  • 00:14:24.200 --> 00:14:25.270
  • QUIT DISCOUNTING YOURSELF.
  • 00:14:25.270 --> 00:14:27.260
  • YOU HAVE THE MIRACLE.
  • 00:14:27.260 --> 00:14:29.140
  • YOU HAVE THE FIVE LOAVES AND THE
  • 00:14:29.140 --> 00:14:30.190
  • TWO FISH.
  • 00:14:30.190 --> 00:14:32.010
  • IT MAY NOT SEEM LIKE MUCH.
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:33.170
  • YOU MAY NOT FEEL QUALIFIED.
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:35.130
  • THE ODDS ARE AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:37.020
  • BUT THIS IS WHERE OUR GOD COMES
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:38.120
  • IN.
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:39.170
  • HE CAN TAKE THE LITTLE AND
  • 00:14:39.170 --> 00:14:40.240
  • MULTIPLY IT.
  • 00:14:40.240 --> 00:14:42.160
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A GREAT
  • 00:14:42.160 --> 00:14:43.280
  • GIFT FOR GOD TO USE YOU IN A
  • 00:14:43.280 --> 00:14:45.190
  • GREAT WAY.
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:47.110
  • YOU CAN HAVE A LITTLE TALENT, A
  • 00:14:47.110 --> 00:14:48.260
  • LITTLE TRAINING, A LITTLE
  • 00:14:48.260 --> 00:14:50.010
  • INFLUENCE.
  • 00:14:50.010 --> 00:14:51.120
  • AND LIKE THE LITTLE BOY'S LUNCH,
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:53.010
  • GOD CAN TAKE IT AND MULTIPLY IT.
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:14:55.280
  • HE CAN OPEN DOORS THAT YOU COULD
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:57.090
  • HAVE NEVER OPENED.
  • 00:14:57.090 --> 00:14:58.160
  • HE CAN BRING TALENT OUT OF YOU
  • 00:14:58.160 --> 00:15:00.090
  • THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU HAD.
  • 00:15:00.090 --> 00:15:02.120
  • HE CAN CAUSE YOU TO BE AT THE
  • 00:15:02.120 --> 00:15:03.130
  • RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:05.000
  • AND GIVE YOU FAVOR, HONOR,

  • INFLUENCE.
  • 00:15:06.140 --> 00:15:08.070
  • DON'T GO AROUND FEELING LIKE
  • 00:15:08.070 --> 00:15:09.100
  • YOU'RE AT A DISADVANTAGE.
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:11.050
  • PUT YOUR SHOULDERS BACK.
  • 00:15:11.050 --> 00:15:12.070
  • HOLD YOUR HEAD UP HIGH.
  • 00:15:12.070 --> 00:15:13.010
  • THE MOST HIGH GOD HAS BREATHED

  • LIFE INTO YOU.

  • MATTERS, HE COUNTS YOU.
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:27.130
  • HE WRITES YOU IN WHEN OTHER

  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:29.230 --> 00:15:31.160
  • I'VE LEARNED GOD WILL NEVER ASK
  • 00:15:31.160 --> 00:15:33.120
  • YOU TO DO SOMETHING AND THEN NOT
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:35.080
  • GIVE YOU THE ABILITY TO DO IT.

  • THE TALENT.
  • 00:15:40.140 --> 00:15:41.190
  • I DIDN'T WHEN I STEPPED UP.
  • 00:15:41.190 --> 00:15:43.050
  • BUT THIS IS WHAT FAITH IS ALL
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:44.110
  • ABOUT.
  • 00:15:44.110 --> 00:15:45.150
  • YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IT BEFORE

  • YOU SEE IT.
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:48.010
  • I HEARD ABOUT THIS PASTOR.

  • BEFORE THE SERVICE, HE GAVE A
  • 00:15:49.270 --> 00:15:51.100
  • MAN THAT HE KNEW A $100 BILL AND
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:54.060
  • ASKED HIM TO SECRETLY PUT IT IN
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:56.250
  • HIS WIFE'S BIBLE AND MAKE SURE
  • 00:15:56.250 --> 00:15:58.010
  • SHE DIDN'T SEE IT.
  • 00:15:58.010 --> 00:15:59.140
  • DURING HIS MESSAGE, HE ASKED
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:01.100
  • THIS LADY TO STAND UP.
  • 00:16:01.100 --> 00:16:03.010
  • HE SAID, "DO YOU TRUST ME?"
  • 00:16:03.010 --> 00:16:04.210
  • SHE SAID, "YES, I DO."
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:06.150
  • HE SAID, "WILL YOU DO WHAT I
  • 00:16:06.150 --> 00:16:07.080
  • ASK?"
  • 00:16:07.080 --> 00:16:08.020
  • SHE SAID, "YES, I WILL."
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:09.220
  • HE SAID, "THEN PLEASE OPEN YOUR
  • 00:16:09.220 --> 00:16:10.290
  • BIBLE AND HAND ME A $100 BILL."
  • 00:16:11.050 --> 00:16:14.050
  • SHE SAID, "OH, I'M SO SORRY.
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:15.130
  • I DON'T HAVE $100 IN THERE."
  • 00:16:15.130 --> 00:16:18.040
  • HE SAID IT AGAIN, "DO YOU TRUST
  • 00:16:18.040 --> 00:16:19.060
  • ME?"
  • 00:16:19.060 --> 00:16:20.060
  • "YES, I DO."
  • 00:16:20.060 --> 00:16:21.010
  • "WILL YOU DO WHAT I ASK?"
  • 00:16:21.010 --> 00:16:22.010
  • "YES, I WILL."
  • 00:16:22.010 --> 00:16:23.060
  • "THEN PLEASE OPEN YOUR BIBLE AND
  • 00:16:23.060 --> 00:16:24.170
  • HAND ME A $100 BILL."
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:27.170
  • FRUSTRATED, SHE OPENED HER BIBLE
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:29.070
  • AND MUCH TO HER SURPRISE, THERE
  • 00:16:29.070 --> 00:16:30.260
  • WAS THE $100.
  • 00:16:30.260 --> 00:16:33.000
  • SHE SHOOK HER HEAD AND SAID,
  • 00:16:33.000 --> 00:16:33.280
  • "HOW DID IT GET IN THERE?"
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:35.070
  • HE SMILED AND SAID, "I PUT IT IN
  • 00:16:35.070 --> 00:16:36.280
  • THERE."
  • 00:16:36.280 --> 00:16:38.160
  • AND THAT'S THE WAY GOD IS.
  • 00:16:38.160 --> 00:16:40.040
  • HE'LL NEVER ASK YOU FOR
  • 00:16:40.040 --> 00:16:41.130
  • SOMETHING WITHOUT FIRST PUTTING
  • 00:16:41.130 --> 00:16:42.250
  • IT IN YOU.
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:45.270
  • AND WHEN YOU KNOW, DEEP DOWN,
  • 00:16:45.270 --> 00:16:48.030
  • YOU KNOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO TAKE
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:49.150
  • A STEP OF FAITH, YOU MAY NOT
  • 00:16:49.150 --> 00:16:51.030
  • FEEL LIKE YOU CAN DO IT.
  • 00:16:51.030 --> 00:16:53.030
  • VOICES WILL TRY TO DISCOUNT YOU.
  • 00:16:53.030 --> 00:16:55.100
  • TELL YOU YOU'RE NOT QUALIFIED.
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:16:57.030
  • BUT IF YOU'LL DARE TAKE THAT
  • 00:16:57.030 --> 00:16:58.150
  • STEP, YOU'LL DISCOVER THINGS IN
  • 00:16:58.150 --> 00:17:00.100
  • YOU THAT YOU NEVER KNEW YOU HAD.
  • 00:17:00.100 --> 00:17:02.190
  • SAY NOT, "I CAN'T DO IT".
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:04.180
  • THE RIGHT ATTITUDE: "I CAN DO
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:06.000
  • ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST."
  • 00:17:06.000 --> 00:17:07.060
  • SAY NOT, "I'M AT A
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:08.170
  • DISADVANTAGE".
  • 00:17:08.170 --> 00:17:09.280
  • THE RIGHT ATTITUDE: "I AM
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:11.090
  • FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE.
  • 00:17:11.090 --> 00:17:13.070
  • I'M A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH
  • 00:17:13.070 --> 00:17:14.040
  • GOD."
  • 00:17:14.040 --> 00:17:15.220
  • SAY NOT, "I'VE REACHED MY
  • 00:17:15.220 --> 00:17:16.230
  • LIMITS.
  • 00:17:16.230 --> 00:17:17.250
  • THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS,
  • 00:17:17.250 --> 00:17:18.240
  • JOEL."
  • 00:17:18.240 --> 00:17:19.200
  • NO, THE RIGHT ATTITUDE: "MY BEST
  • 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:20.280
  • DAYS ARE STILL IN FRONT OF ME.
  • 00:17:20.280 --> 00:17:23.000
  • THE PATH OF THE RIGHTEOUS GETS
  • 00:17:23.000 --> 00:17:24.010
  • BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER.
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:26.220
  • I'M EXCITED ABOUT MY FUTURE."
  • 00:17:26.220 --> 00:17:28.280
  • THIS IS WHAT A FRIEND OF MINE
  • 00:17:28.280 --> 00:17:29.160
  • DID.
  • 00:17:29.160 --> 00:17:30.010
  • HE HAD A DREAM OF BECOMING A
  • 00:17:30.010 --> 00:17:30.270
  • PASTOR BUT HE HAD A SERIOUS
  • 00:17:30.270 --> 00:17:32.270
  • PROBLEM WITH STUTTERING.
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.260
  • IT AFFECTED HIS SELF IMAGE TO
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:36.070
  • WHERE HE COULD HARDLY LOOK YOU
  • 00:17:36.070 --> 00:17:37.060
  • IN THE EYES.
  • 00:17:37.060 --> 00:17:38.180
  • AND AT 16 YEARS OF AGE, HIS
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:40.000
  • PARENTS SENT HIM TO A VERY
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:41.270
  • PRESTIGIOUS SPEECH SCHOOL.
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:43.290
  • THE TEACHERS CARRIED AROUND
  • 00:17:43.290 --> 00:17:45.070
  • STOPWATCHES.
  • 00:17:45.070 --> 00:17:47.030
  • WHEN THE STUDENTS GOT STUCK,
  • 00:17:47.030 --> 00:17:48.240
  • THEY WOULD TIME HOW LONG IT
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.080
  • WOULD TAKE THEM TO GET THE WORD
  • 00:17:50.080 --> 00:17:51.040
  • OUT.
  • 00:17:51.040 --> 00:17:52.080
  • THAT'S HOW THEY TRACKED THEIR
  • 00:17:52.080 --> 00:17:53.040
  • PROGRESS.
  • 00:17:53.040 --> 00:17:54.200
  • THE FIRST DAY MY FRIEND WAS AT
  • 00:17:54.200 --> 00:17:55.230
  • THE SCHOOL, HE GOT STUCK ON THE
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:56.290
  • WORD "THE".
  • 00:17:56.290 --> 00:17:58.260
  • IT TOOK HIM ONE MINUTE AND 16
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:00.180
  • SECONDS TO GET IT OUT.
  • 00:18:00.180 --> 00:18:02.100
  • HE HAD A MAJOR STUTTERING
  • 00:18:02.100 --> 00:18:03.140
  • PROBLEM.
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:05.090
  • IN THE NATURAL, YOU WOULD THINK,
  • 00:18:05.090 --> 00:18:06.120
  • "YOU'RE NOT CUT OUT TO BECOME A
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:07.290
  • PUBLIC SPEAKER.
  • 00:18:07.290 --> 00:18:09.160
  • YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ELSE BUT
  • 00:18:09.160 --> 00:18:10.260
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BECOME A
  • 00:18:10.260 --> 00:18:11.200
  • PASTOR."
  • 00:18:11.200 --> 00:18:12.240
  • HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:13.190
  • ONES NOT COUNTED.
  • 00:18:13.190 --> 00:18:15.160
  • HE STUTTERS; CROSS HIM OFF.
  • 00:18:15.160 --> 00:18:17.240
  • BUT GOD USES PEOPLE THAT OTHER
  • 00:18:17.240 --> 00:18:19.120
  • PEOPLE DON'T COUNT.
  • 00:18:19.120 --> 00:18:21.060
  • AND WHEN GOD PUT THE DREAM IN
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:22.180
  • YOUR HEART, HE GAVE YOU THE
  • 00:18:22.180 --> 00:18:24.050
  • ABILITY TO DO IT.
  • 00:18:24.050 --> 00:18:26.110
  • BUT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE FORCES
  • 00:18:26.110 --> 00:18:28.030
  • THAT TRY TO KEEP YOUR POTENTIAL
  • 00:18:28.030 --> 00:18:30.030
  • FROM BEING RELEASED.
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:32.070
  • THE ENEMY WOULD LOVE FOR YOUR
  • 00:18:32.070 --> 00:18:33.200
  • GIFT TO STAY HIDDEN.
  • 00:18:33.200 --> 00:18:35.170
  • HE WOULD LOVE FOR THE BEST OF
  • 00:18:35.170 --> 00:18:36.220
  • YOU TO NEVER COME OUT.
  • 00:18:36.220 --> 00:18:38.160
  • AND JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A
  • 00:18:38.160 --> 00:18:39.210
  • DREAM, JUST BECAUSE GOD HAS
  • 00:18:39.210 --> 00:18:41.180
  • QUALIFIED YOU DOESN'T MEAN THAT
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:43.080
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO
  • 00:18:43.080 --> 00:18:44.220
  • FIGHT.
  • 00:18:44.220 --> 00:18:46.020
  • YOU HAVE TO STAND STRONG AND BE
  • 00:18:46.020 --> 00:18:47.200
  • DETERMINED TO BECOME ALL YOU
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:49.250
  • WERE CREATED TO BE.
  • 00:18:49.250 --> 00:18:51.140
  • YOU CAN'T BE WEAK, GET
  • 00:18:51.140 --> 00:18:52.290
  • DISCOURAGED BECAUSE YOU HAD A
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:54.130
  • SETBACK, AND FALL INTO
  • 00:18:54.130 --> 00:18:55.190
  • SELF-PITY.
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:57.000
  • NO, YOU HAVE TO DIG YOUR HEELS
  • 00:18:57.000 --> 00:18:58.030
  • IN AND SAY, "I AM IN IT TO WIN
  • 00:18:58.030 --> 00:18:59.200
  • IT.
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:00.230
  • THIS CHALLENGE IS NO MATCH FOR
  • 00:19:00.230 --> 00:19:01.250
  • ME.
  • 00:19:01.250 --> 00:19:02.290
  • I AM MORE THAN A CONQUEROR.
  • 00:19:02.290 --> 00:19:04.130
  • IF GOD BE FOR ME, WHO DARE BE
  • 00:19:04.130 --> 00:19:06.060
  • AGAINST ME?
  • 00:19:06.060 --> 00:19:07.180
  • I WILL FULFILL MY DESTINY."
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:10.020
  • IF YOU DON'T TALK TO YOURSELF
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:11.090
  • THE RIGHT WAY, NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
  • 00:19:11.090 --> 00:19:13.240
  • WILL TALK TO YOU.
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:15.040
  • AND JUST LIKE YOU CAN TALK
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:16.080
  • YOURSELF OUT OF A DREAM, YOU CAN
  • 00:19:16.080 --> 00:19:17.260
  • TALK YOURSELF INTO A DREAM.
  • 00:19:17.260 --> 00:19:19.290
  • MY FRIEND, AS A YOUNG MAN, HE
  • 00:19:19.290 --> 00:19:22.090
  • WOULD GET ALONE IN HIS HOUSE
  • 00:19:22.090 --> 00:19:24.030
  • WHERE NOBODY COULD HEAR HIM.
  • 00:19:24.030 --> 00:19:25.170
  • HE WOULD QUOTE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:19:25.170 --> 00:19:26.140
  • SOMETIMES IT WOULD TAKE FIVE
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:28.150
  • MINUTES TO JUST GET ONE
  • 00:19:28.150 --> 00:19:29.210
  • SCRIPTURE OUT.
  • 00:19:29.210 --> 00:19:30.290
  • HE DIDN'T GET DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:19:30.290 --> 00:19:32.180
  • HE WOULD SAY THINGS LIKE, "NO
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:33.210
  • WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME WILL
  • 00:19:33.210 --> 00:19:35.020
  • PROSPER."
  • 00:19:35.020 --> 00:19:36.060
  • "THANKS BE TO GOD WHO ALWAYS
  • 00:19:36.060 --> 00:19:37.080
  • CAUSES ME TO TRIUMPH."
  • 00:19:37.080 --> 00:19:39.020
  • AND IT DIDN'T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT
  • 00:19:39.020 --> 00:19:40.160
  • BUT LITTLE BY LITTLE, HE GOT
  • 00:19:40.160 --> 00:19:41.270
  • BETTER AND BETTER.
  • 00:19:41.270 --> 00:19:43.030
  • IT AMAZED HIS TEACHERS.
  • 00:19:43.030 --> 00:19:45.010
  • TODAY HE CAN SPEAK AS CLEARLY
  • 00:19:45.010 --> 00:19:46.230
  • AND FLUENTLY AS CAN BE.
  • 00:19:46.230 --> 00:19:48.230
  • NO STUTTERING.
  • 00:19:48.230 --> 00:19:49.270
  • PLUS HE'S THE PASTOR OF A
  • 00:19:49.270 --> 00:19:51.200
  • SUCCESSFUL CHURCH.
  • 00:19:51.200 --> 00:19:52.280
  • WHAT AM I SAYING?
  • 00:19:52.280 --> 00:19:54.020
  • WHEN LIFE COUNTS YOU OUT, GOD
  • 00:19:54.020 --> 00:19:56.070
  • COUNTS YOU IN.
  • 00:19:56.070 --> 00:19:57.070
  • DON'T LET NEGATIVE THOUGHTS,
  • 00:19:57.070 --> 00:19:59.130
  • NEGATIVE PEOPLE, KEEP YOU FROM
  • 00:19:59.130 --> 00:20:01.190
  • STEPPING INTO THE FULLNESS OF
  • 00:20:01.190 --> 00:20:02.240
  • YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:04.080
  • THERE WILL ALWAYS BE VOICES
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:06.010
  • TELLING YOU, "YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:07.000
  • QUALIFIED"; "YOU STUTTER";
  • 00:20:07.000 --> 00:20:09.030
  • "YOU'VE MADE TOO MANY MISTAKES";
  • 00:20:09.030 --> 00:20:10.200
  • "YOU'RE TOO SHORT"; "YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:11.250
  • THAT TALENTED".
  • 00:20:11.250 --> 00:20:13.040
  • THOSE ARE ALL LIES TRYING TO
  • 00:20:13.040 --> 00:20:14.200
  • MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DON'T
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:16.060
  • COUNT SO THAT THE BEST OF YOU
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:17.270
  • NEVER COMES OUT.
  • 00:20:17.270 --> 00:20:20.020
  • DON'T BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:20:20.020 --> 00:20:21.010
  • DON'T FALL INTO THAT TRAP.
  • 00:20:21.010 --> 00:20:22.080
  • EVEN WAY BACK WITH MOSES, WHEN
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:24.070
  • GOD TOLD HIM TO GO TELL PHARAOH,
  • 00:20:24.070 --> 00:20:26.200
  • "LET MY PEOPLE GO", THE FIRST
  • 00:20:26.200 --> 00:20:27.290
  • THING MOSES SAID WAS, "GOD, I
  • 00:20:27.290 --> 00:20:30.020
  • CAN'T DO THAT. I STUTTER.
  • 00:20:30.020 --> 00:20:31.270
  • I DON'T SPEAK WELL."
  • 00:20:31.270 --> 00:20:33.270
  • IT'S EASY TO COME UP WITH
  • 00:20:33.270 --> 00:20:35.030
  • EXCUSES. BUT I LOVE THE WAY GOD
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:37.040
  • ANSWERED HIM BACK.
  • 00:20:37.040 --> 00:20:38.210
  • HE SAID, "MOSES, WHO MADE YOUR
  • 00:20:38.210 --> 00:20:40.010
  • TONGUE? WHO MAKES THE DEAF
  • 00:20:40.010 --> 00:20:42.170
  • TO HEAR? WHO MAKES THE BLIND
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:43.180
  • TO SEE?"
  • 00:20:43.180 --> 00:20:44.200
  • HE WAS SAYING, "MOSES, WHO
  • 00:20:44.200 --> 00:20:46.010
  • DISQUALIFIED YOU? WHO LEFT YOU
  • 00:20:46.010 --> 00:20:48.050
  • OUT? WHO TOLD YOU YOU DON'T
  • 00:20:48.050 --> 00:20:49.120
  • COUNT? DON'T YOU REALIZE MOSES
  • 00:20:49.120 --> 00:20:51.120
  • I CONTROL THE WHOLE UNIVERSE?
  • 00:20:51.120 --> 00:20:54.030
  • WHEN YOU BELIEVE, I CAN MAKE IT
  • 00:20:54.030 --> 00:20:55.110
  • HAPPEN."
  • 00:20:55.110 --> 00:20:56.270
  • YEARS BEFORE DAVID WAS CHOSEN TO
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:20:58.180
  • BE KING, THE PROPHET SAMUEL WENT
  • 00:20:58.180 --> 00:21:00.250
  • TO ANOTHER YOUNG MAN NAMED SAUL
  • 00:21:00.250 --> 00:21:03.060
  • AND TOLD HIM HE WAS GOING TO BE
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:04.110
  • THE NEXT KING.
  • 00:21:04.110 --> 00:21:05.240
  • BUT SAUL SAID, "SAMUEL, HOW CAN
  • 00:21:05.240 --> 00:21:07.030
  • THIS BE?
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:08.110
  • I COME FROM THE SMALLEST TRIBE
  • 00:21:08.110 --> 00:21:10.120
  • AND MY FAMILY IS THE LEAST
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:12.040
  • IMPORTANT."
  • 00:21:12.040 --> 00:21:13.250
  • HE WAS SAYING THE SAME THING, "I
  • 00:21:13.250 --> 00:21:15.010
  • CAN'T BE A KING. I DON'T COUNT.
  • 00:21:15.010 --> 00:21:17.000
  • I DON'T COME FROM AN INFLUENTIAL
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:18.110
  • FAMILY. WE'RE NOT ROYALTY.
  • 00:21:18.110 --> 00:21:20.140
  • WE'RE JUST ORDINARY PEOPLE."
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:22.190
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS SAMUEL
  • 00:21:22.190 --> 00:21:24.140
  • DIDN'T ANSWER SAUL.
  • 00:21:24.140 --> 00:21:26.200
  • HE DIDN'T RESPOND BACK TO HIM.
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:28.160
  • AND WHEN WE COME UP WITH EXCUSES
  • 00:21:28.160 --> 00:21:30.000
  • AND TELL GOD WHY WE CAN'T RISE
  • 00:21:30.000 --> 00:21:31.180
  • HIGHER: "GOD, I'M NOT THAT
  • 00:21:31.180 --> 00:21:33.030
  • TALENTED.
  • 00:21:33.030 --> 00:21:34.050
  • GOD, I HAVE THIS ADDICTION.
  • 00:21:34.050 --> 00:21:35.080
  • GOD I COME FROM THE WRONG
  • 00:21:35.080 --> 00:21:35.280
  • FAMILY."
  • 00:21:35.280 --> 00:21:37.090
  • GOD DOESN'T SAY, "YES, I
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:37.290
  • UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:21:37.290 --> 00:21:38.220
  • YOU HAVE A DISADVANTAGE."
  • 00:21:38.220 --> 00:21:40.140
  • NO, OUR EXCUSES DON'T PHASE GOD.
  • 00:21:40.140 --> 00:21:43.030
  • HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S PUT IN YOU.
  • 00:21:43.030 --> 00:21:45.000
  • GOD CAN SEE YOUR GREATNESS.
  • 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:47.160
  • HE SEES THE ROYALTY IN YOUR
  • 00:21:47.160 --> 00:21:48.240
  • BLOOD.
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:49.260
  • HE SEES THE POTENTIAL.
  • 00:21:49.260 --> 00:21:51.080
  • YOU'VE NOT YET TAPPED INTO.
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:52.190
  • AND OUR DOUBTS, OUR FEARS, OUR
  • 00:21:52.190 --> 00:21:54.100
  • INSECURITIES, THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:55.260
  • CHANGE GOD'S MIND.
  • 00:21:55.260 --> 00:21:57.170
  • HE'S ALREADY LAID OUT THE PLAN
  • 00:21:57.170 --> 00:21:58.170
  • FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:58.170 --> 00:22:00.040
  • HE'S SAYING TO YOU TODAY, "I'VE
  • 00:22:00.040 --> 00:22:01.190
  • CALLED YOU TO BE A KING, TO BE A
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:03.140
  • QUEEN, TO REIGN IN LIFE, TO MAKE
  • 00:22:03.240 --> 00:22:06.240
  • A NEW STANDARD FOR YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:22:06.270 --> 00:22:09.270
  • WHY DON'T YOU LOSE THE EXCUSES
  • 00:22:09.270 --> 00:22:11.110
  • AND GET IN AGREEMENT WITH GOD?"
  • 00:22:11.110 --> 00:22:13.170
  • SOMETIMES, WE THINK WE'RE
  • 00:22:13.170 --> 00:22:15.090
  • DISQUALIFIED BECAUSE OF THE
  • 00:22:15.090 --> 00:22:16.130
  • MISTAKES WE MADE.
  • 00:22:16.130 --> 00:22:18.050
  • WE DON'T COUNT BECAUSE WE
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:19.070
  • HAVEN'T LIVED THE RIGHT KIND OF
  • 00:22:19.070 --> 00:22:20.060
  • LIFE.
  • 00:22:20.060 --> 00:22:21.050
  • THAT'S WHY WE'RE KIND OF SITTING
  • 00:22:21.050 --> 00:22:22.160
  • ON THE SIDELINES.
  • 00:22:22.160 --> 00:22:24.000
  • BUT WHEN GOD NEEDED SOMEONE TO
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:26.020
  • SAVE THE ISRAELI SPIES BACK IN
  • 00:22:26.020 --> 00:22:27.290
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT, THEY WERE IN
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:30.020
  • THE CITY OF JERICHO.
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:31.290
  • WORD GOT OUT THAT THEY WERE
  • 00:22:31.290 --> 00:22:32.260
  • THERE, THEIR COVER WAS BLOWN,
  • 00:22:32.260 --> 00:22:34.130
  • NOW THEY WERE ABOUT TO BE
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:35.110
  • CAPTURED.
  • 00:22:35.110 --> 00:22:37.010
  • GOD COULD HAVE CHOSEN ANYONE
  • 00:22:37.010 --> 00:22:38.160
  • TO HELP THEM. HE'S GOD.
  • 00:22:38.160 --> 00:22:40.070
  • HE COULD HAVE HAD A SOLDIER HELP
  • 00:22:40.070 --> 00:22:41.120
  • GET THEM OUT OR A COMMUNITY
  • 00:22:41.120 --> 00:22:43.190
  • LEADER TO SECRETLY ESCORT THEM
  • 00:22:43.190 --> 00:22:45.220
  • OUT OF THE CITY.
  • 00:22:45.220 --> 00:22:46.260
  • BUT HE DIDN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:22:46.260 --> 00:22:48.110
  • GOD CHOSE A WOMAN BY THE NAME
  • 00:22:48.110 --> 00:22:50.260
  • OF RAHAB. SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE,
  • 00:22:50.260 --> 00:22:53.260
  • NOT RESPECTED.
  • 00:22:53.260 --> 00:22:55.100
  • EVERYONE LOOKED DOWN ON HER AND
  • 00:22:55.100 --> 00:22:56.230
  • THOUGHT, "SHE'LL NEVER DO
  • 00:22:56.230 --> 00:22:58.030
  • ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT.
  • 00:22:58.030 --> 00:22:59.050
  • SHE DOESN'T COUNT."
  • 00:22:59.050 --> 00:23:01.210
  • BUT GOD DOESN'T JUDGE THE WAY
  • 00:23:01.210 --> 00:23:03.110
  • PEOPLE JUDGE. PEOPLE SAW HER
  • 00:23:03.110 --> 00:23:05.050
  • SHORTCOMINGS, HER FAILURES;
  • 00:23:05.050 --> 00:23:07.050
  • BUT GOD SAW A DIAMOND IN THE
  • 00:23:07.050 --> 00:23:08.240
  • ROUGH. GOD SAW HER POTENTIAL.
  • 00:23:08.240 --> 00:23:11.140
  • HE KNEW WHAT SHE COULD BECOME.
  • 00:23:11.140 --> 00:23:13.210
  • GOD LOOKED DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:15.070
  • SAID, "I WANT TO USE HER."
  • 00:23:15.070 --> 00:23:17.130
  • I CAN HEAR AN ANGEL SAY, "EXCUSE
  • 00:23:17.130 --> 00:23:18.240
  • ME, GOD, I DON'T MEAN TO SECOND
  • 00:23:18.240 --> 00:23:20.240
  • GUESS YOU BUT I THINK YOU'VE
  • 00:23:20.240 --> 00:23:22.020
  • CHOSEN THE WRONG PERSON.
  • 00:23:22.020 --> 00:23:24.010
  • THAT LADY IS A NOTORIOUS SINNER.
  • 00:23:24.010 --> 00:23:26.270
  • SHE'S MADE A MESS OF HER LIFE.
  • 00:23:26.270 --> 00:23:28.080
  • SHE'S DISQUALIFIED."
  • 00:23:28.080 --> 00:23:29.290
  • GOD SAID, "NO, I DIDN'T MAKE A
  • 00:23:29.290 --> 00:23:31.120
  • MISTAKE.
  • 00:23:31.120 --> 00:23:32.290
  • I CHOOSE PEOPLE THAT OTHER
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:34.200
  • PEOPLE DON'T CHOOSE."
  • 00:23:34.200 --> 00:23:36.200
  • AND RAHAB NOT ONLY SAVED THE
  • 00:23:36.200 --> 00:23:38.120
  • SPIES BUT THAT ENDED UP SAVING
  • 00:23:38.120 --> 00:23:41.040
  • HER OWN LIFE, HER OWN FAMILY.
  • 00:23:41.040 --> 00:23:43.150
  • AND HERE'S HOW AMAZING GOD IS:
  • 00:23:43.150 --> 00:23:45.240
  • RAHAB MARRIED A JEWISH MAN.
  • 00:23:45.240 --> 00:23:47.240
  • AND THEY HAD A SON NAMED BOAZ.
  • 00:23:47.240 --> 00:23:50.030
  • BOAZ HAD A SON NAMED JESSE.
  • 00:23:50.030 --> 00:23:52.180
  • JESSE HAD A SON NAMED DAVID.
  • 00:23:52.180 --> 00:23:54.240
  • THAT MEANS THAT RAHAB THE FORMER
  • 00:23:54.240 --> 00:23:56.190
  • PROSTITUTE IS IN THE FAMILY LINE
  • 00:23:56.190 --> 00:23:58.130
  • OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:23:58.130 --> 00:24:00.160
  • GOD DOESN'T CHOOSE THE WAY
  • 00:24:00.160 --> 00:24:01.240
  • PEOPLE CHOOSE.
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:04.040
  • NOW, YOU MAY HAVE MADE MISTAKES.
  • 00:24:04.040 --> 00:24:06.190
  • YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DON'T COUNT,
  • 00:24:06.190 --> 00:24:08.220
  • YOU BLEW IT.
  • 00:24:08.220 --> 00:24:10.080
  • CAN I TELL YOU, YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:24:10.120 --> 00:24:13.120
  • COUNTED BY THE CREATOR.
  • 00:24:13.120 --> 00:24:14.200
  • HE'S LOOKING DOWN FROM HEAVEN
  • 00:24:14.200 --> 00:24:15.140
  • RIGHT NOW CALLING YOUR NAME

  • I WANT YOU TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:24:17.270 --> 00:24:18.220
  • GREAT.

  • I WANT TO MAKE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:24:22.120 --> 00:24:23.010
  • SIGNIFICANT."
  • 00:24:23.010 --> 00:24:24.170
  • PEOPLE MAY HAVE WRITTEN YOU OFF
  • 00:24:24.170 --> 00:24:25.170
