  • - JOEL OSTEEN: WELL, GOD BLESS
  • 00:00:11.120 --> 00:00:12.110
  • YOU, IT'S A JOY TO COME
  • 00:00:12.110 --> 00:00:13.130
  • INTO YOUR HOMES AND IF YOU'RE
  • 00:00:13.130 --> 00:00:14.290
  • EVER IN OUR AREA, PLEASE STOP
  • 00:00:14.290 --> 00:00:16.160
  • BY AND BE A PART OF ONE OF OUR
  • 00:00:16.160 --> 00:00:18.200
  • SERVICES.
  • 00:00:18.200 --> 00:00:19.050
  • I PROMISE YOU, WE'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:00:19.050 --> 00:00:20.260
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:22.270 --> 00:00:23.170
  • FUNNY AND I HEARD ABOUT THIS
  • 00:00:23.170 --> 00:00:25.070
  • SIX YEAR-OLD BOY.
  • 00:00:25.070 --> 00:00:26.140
  • HE WAS STANDING IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:28.060
  • LOBBY STARING AT A LARGE PLAQUE
  • 00:00:28.060 --> 00:00:29.290
  • ON THE WALL.
  • 00:00:29.290 --> 00:00:31.070
  • IT WAS FILLED WITH NAMES
  • 00:00:31.070 --> 00:00:32.250
  • WITH SMALL AMERICAN FLAGS
  • 00:00:32.250 --> 00:00:34.050
  • BY THEIR SIDE.
  • 00:00:34.050 --> 00:00:35.130
  • HE ASKED THE PASTOR WHAT
  • 00:00:35.130 --> 00:00:36.240
  • IT MEANT.
  • 00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:37.120
  • THE PASTOR EXPLAINED HOW THAT
  • 00:00:37.120 --> 00:00:39.010
  • WAS A MEMORIAL TO ALL THE YOUNG
  • 00:00:39.010 --> 00:00:41.090
  • MEN AND WOMEN THAT DIED
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:43.110
  • IN THE SERVICE.
  • 00:00:43.110 --> 00:00:44.190
  • THE LITTLE BOY STOOD THERE
  • 00:00:44.190 --> 00:00:46.120
  • SILENTLY VERY CONCERNED, HE
  • 00:00:46.120 --> 00:00:47.240
  • FINALLY LOOKED UP AND ASKED,
  • 00:00:47.240 --> 00:00:49.040
  • "WAS IT THE 8:30 OR 11 O'CLOCK
  • 00:00:49.040 --> 00:00:50.290
  • SERVICE?"
  • 00:00:50.290 --> 00:00:52.130
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT: THIS IS
  • 00:00:52.130 --> 00:00:54.180
  • MY BIBLE.
  • 00:00:54.180 --> 00:00:55.050
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:56.280
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:00:56.280 --> 00:00:58.230
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:00:58.230 --> 00:01:00.290
  • TODAY, I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:00.290 --> 00:01:03.010
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:03.010 --> 00:01:03.190
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS, MY MIND IS
  • 00:01:03.190 --> 00:01:06.040
  • ALERT, MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:06.040 --> 00:01:08.060
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
  • 00:01:08.060 --> 00:01:10.130
  • IN JESUS'S NAME.
  • 00:01:10.130 --> 00:01:11.170
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:15.270
  • ABOUT THE FIGHT FOR YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:17.240
  • WE ALL HAVE THINGS THAT COME
  • 00:01:17.240 --> 00:01:19.160
  • AREN'T FAIR, A SICKNESS THAT
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:22.270
  • WON'T SEEM TO GO AWAY,
  • 00:01:22.270 --> 00:01:24.160
  • OR A SETBACK IN OUR FINANCES.
  • 00:01:24.160 --> 00:01:26.270
  • SOMETIMES IT WAS NO FAULT OF
  • 00:01:26.270 --> 00:01:29.050
  • OUR OWN.
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:29.250
  • WE WERE BORN INTO DIFFICULTIES:
  • 00:01:29.250 --> 00:01:31.280
  • PARENTS THAT WEREN'T AROUND,
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:33.210
  • DEPRESSION, AND ADDICTIONS THAT
  • 00:01:33.210 --> 00:01:35.120
  • KEEP GETTING PASSED DOWN.
  • 00:01:35.120 --> 00:01:37.040
  • WE WONDER WHY AM I HAVING
  • 00:01:37.040 --> 00:01:39.200
  • THIS OPPOSITION?
  • 00:01:39.200 --> 00:01:40.110
  • WHY WAS I RAISED IN AN UNHEALTHY
  • 00:01:40.110 --> 00:01:42.260
  • CHILDHOOD?
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:43.100
  • WHY DID THIS COMPANY LET ME GO
  • 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:45.110
  • AFTER ALL THESE YEARS?
  • 00:01:45.110 --> 00:01:46.180
  • IT'S BECAUSE THERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:01:46.180 --> 00:01:48.060
  • IN YOU THAT THE ENEMY'S TRYING
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:50.190
  • TO STOP.
  • 00:01:50.190 --> 00:01:51.260
  • THOSE BAD BREAKS WERE NOT
  • 00:01:51.260 --> 00:01:53.210
  • RANDOM, YOU WEREN'T JUST
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:55.060
  • UNLUCKY--THOSE WERE STRATEGIC
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:01:58.010
  • ATTACKS.
  • 00:01:58.010 --> 00:01:58.220
  • IF THE ENEMY WASN'T THREATENED
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:00.110
  • BY YOU HE WOULDN'T BE TRYING
  • 00:02:00.110 --> 00:02:02.090
  • TO HOLD YOU BACK.
  • 00:02:02.090 --> 00:02:03.200
  • IF HE COULDN'T SEE GREATNESS
  • 00:02:03.200 --> 00:02:05.120
  • IN YOU HE WOULDN'T WASTE HIS
  • 00:02:05.120 --> 00:02:07.160
  • TIME BRINGING THOSE CHALLENGES.
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.030
  • WHEN YOU GAVE YOUR LIFE
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:11.220
  • TO CHRIST, GOD MARKED YOU.
  • 00:02:11.220 --> 00:02:13.100
  • HE SAID YOU'RE MINE.
  • 00:02:13.100 --> 00:02:14.240
  • HE PUT THAT CROWN OF FAVOR
  • 00:02:14.240 --> 00:02:16.220
  • ON YOUR HEAD AND THAT'S GREAT,
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:18.210
  • BUT THE CHALLENGE IS YOU BECAME
  • 00:02:18.210 --> 00:02:20.270
  • A TARGET TO THE ENEMY.
  • 00:02:20.270 --> 00:02:22.230
  • HE KNOWS YOU'RE DESTINED TO TAKE
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:25.000
  • NEW GROUND.
  • 00:02:25.000 --> 00:02:25.220
  • HE KNOWS GOD HAS FAVORED YOU
  • 00:02:25.220 --> 00:02:27.200
  • TO LEAVE YOUR MARK SO HE'S GOING
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:29.290
  • TO WORK OVERTIME TO TRY TO
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:32.120
  • STOP YOU.
  • 00:02:32.120 --> 00:02:33.030
  • MANY TIMES THE ENEMY KNOWS WHO
  • 00:02:33.030 --> 00:02:35.120
  • WE ARE EVEN BEFORE WE REALIZE
  • 00:02:35.120 --> 00:02:37.210
  • WHO WE ARE.
  • 00:02:37.210 --> 00:02:39.050
  • WHEN DAVID WAS A TEENAGER
  • 00:02:39.050 --> 00:02:40.190
  • WORKING OUT IN THE SHEPHERD'S
  • 00:02:40.190 --> 00:02:42.040
  • FIELDS, HE SEEMED AS ORDINARY AS
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:44.200
  • CAN BE.
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:45.160
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE A SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:47.030
  • POSITION TAKING CARE OF HIS
  • 00:02:47.030 --> 00:02:48.200
  • FATHER'S SHEEP.
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:49.270
  • HE DIDN'T COME FROM WEALTH
  • 00:02:49.270 --> 00:02:51.070
  • AND INFLUENCE; THEY WERE A LOW
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:52.250
  • INCOME FAMILY.
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:54.050
  • NOTHING ABOUT DAVID THAT
  • 00:02:54.050 --> 00:02:56.050
  • STOOD OUT.
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:56.210
  • WHY DID HIS FATHER LEAVE HIM
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:02:58.260
  • IN THE SHEPHERD'S FIELDS WHEN
  • 00:02:58.260 --> 00:03:00.240
  • SAMUEL CAME TO ANOINT ONE
  • 00:03:00.240 --> 00:03:02.130
  • OF THE SONS AS THE NEXT KING?
  • 00:03:02.130 --> 00:03:04.210
  • IT WAS NO BIG DEAL TO BRING
  • 00:03:04.210 --> 00:03:06.150
  • HIM IN.
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:07.020
  • WHY DID HE DISRESPECT DAVID
  • 00:03:07.020 --> 00:03:08.250
  • AND LOOKED DOWN ON HIM
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:10.080
  • LIKE THAT?
  • 00:03:10.080 --> 00:03:11.060
  • WHEN DAVID TOOK LUNCH TO HIS
  • 00:03:11.060 --> 00:03:12.270
  • BROTHERS WHEN THEY WERE
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:14.010
  • IN THE ARMY, WHY DID HIS OLDEST
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:16.290
  • BROTHER BELITTLE DAVID AND MAKE
  • 00:03:16.290 --> 00:03:19.020
  • FUN OF HIM?
  • 00:03:19.020 --> 00:03:20.100
  • WHY WAS HE JEALOUS?
  • 00:03:20.100 --> 00:03:21.290
  • DAVID WASN'T INTIMIDATING.
  • 00:03:21.290 --> 00:03:23.280
  • IT DIDN'T SEEM LIKE HE WAS ANY
  • 00:03:23.280 --> 00:03:25.220
  • THREAT TO THEM.
  • 00:03:25.220 --> 00:03:26.150
  • BUT THE ENEMY CAN SEE THINGS
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:28.070
  • IN YOU THAT YOU MAY NOT SEE
  • 00:03:28.070 --> 00:03:30.100
  • IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:03:30.100 --> 00:03:31.200
  • DAVID SAW HIMSELF AS ORDINARY
  • 00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:33.200
  • BUT EVEN THE ENEMY KNEW HE WAS
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:36.130
  • A GIANT-KILLER.
  • 00:03:36.130 --> 00:03:37.220
  • HE KNEW HE WAS A HISTORY MAKER.
  • 00:03:37.220 --> 00:03:40.030
  • THAT'S WHY HE CAME AGAINST DAVID
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:42.270
  • SO STRONGLY.
  • 00:03:42.270 --> 00:03:43.260
  • MANY OF THE DIFFICULTIES YOU'VE
  • 00:03:43.260 --> 00:03:45.200
  • FACED--THINGS THAT DIDN'T MAKE
  • 00:03:45.200 --> 00:03:47.150
  • SENSE, OPPOSITION THAT CAME
  • 00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:49.000
  • OUT OF NOWHERE, PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:03:49.000 --> 00:03:50.270
  • TURNED ON YOU--IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:03:50.270 --> 00:03:53.070
  • THERE'S A GIANT-KILLER IN YOU;
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:55.170
  • THERE'S A HISTORY MAKER.
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:57.150
  • YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SEE IT
  • 00:03:57.150 --> 00:03:59.260
  • YET, BUT EVEN THE ENEMY CAN SEE
  • 00:03:59.260 --> 00:04:02.000
  • THERE'S GREATNESS IN YOU.
  • 00:04:02.000 --> 00:04:03.270
  • HAVE A NEW PERSPECTIVE, THOSE
  • 00:04:03.270 --> 00:04:05.270
  • DIFFICULTIES ARE A SIGN
  • 00:04:05.270 --> 00:04:07.150
  • SOMETHING AMAZING IS IN YOUR
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:09.280
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:10.130
  • MARK CHAPTER 5, THERE WAS A MAN
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:12.200
  • THAT WAS POSSESSED WITH EVIL
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.080
  • SPIRITS.
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:15.160
  • IT HAD GOTTEN SO BAD NO ONE
  • 00:04:15.160 --> 00:04:17.190
  • COULD CONTROL HIM.
  • 00:04:17.190 --> 00:04:18.170
  • AND THEY SENT HIM TO THE OTHER
  • 00:04:18.170 --> 00:04:20.200
  • SIDE OF THE SEA OF GALILEE
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:22.150
  • TO A PLACE CALLED THE GADARENES,
  • 00:04:22.150 --> 00:04:24.210
  • WHERE HE COULD LIVE
  • 00:04:24.210 --> 00:04:25.190
  • AMONG THE TOMBS, IN A GRAVEYARD,
  • 00:04:25.190 --> 00:04:28.110
  • A DESERTED PLACE.
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:29.220
  • THEY TRIED TO CHAIN HIM
  • 00:04:29.220 --> 00:04:30.270
  • UP BUT HE WAS SO STRONG HE WOULD
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:32.260
  • BREAK THE CHAINS.
  • 00:04:32.260 --> 00:04:34.140
  • ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT AND DAY,
  • 00:04:34.140 --> 00:04:36.180
  • HE WOULD WANDER
  • 00:04:36.180 --> 00:04:37.200
  • THROUGH THE TOMBS WEARING NO
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:40.060
  • CLOTHES, CUTTING HIMSELF,
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:41.210
  • AND SCREAMING.
  • 00:04:41.210 --> 00:04:43.090
  • THIS MAN DIDN'T LOOK LIKE HE HAD
  • 00:04:43.090 --> 00:04:45.180
  • MUCH OF A CHANCE--DERANGED
  • 00:04:45.180 --> 00:04:47.070
  • IN HIS MIND, SOCIETY HAD WRITTEN
  • 00:04:47.070 --> 00:04:50.010
  • HIM OFF.
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:50.290
  • I CAN IMAGINE SOME NIGHTS THERE
  • 00:04:50.290 --> 00:04:53.120
  • WERE MOMENTS OF SANITY.
  • 00:04:53.120 --> 00:04:55.010
  • WHERE HE WOULD LOOK UP AND SAY,
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:57.090
  • "GOD, PLEASE HELP ME.
  • 00:04:57.090 --> 00:04:58.200
  • WHY AM I SO TORMENTED?
  • 00:04:58.200 --> 00:05:00.120
  • GOD, I WANT TO GO BACK HOME."
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:02.170
  • IT LOOKED LIKE THIS WAS HIS
  • 00:05:02.170 --> 00:05:04.160
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:05.070
  • PEOPLE HAD GIVEN UP ON HIM,
  • 00:05:05.070 --> 00:05:07.110
  • BUT GOD NEVER GIVES UP ON US.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:09.250
  • NOBODY IS TOO FAR GONE.
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:12.160
  • DON'T WRITE YOUR CHILD OFF.
  • 00:05:12.160 --> 00:05:14.240
  • DON'T WRITE YOUR NEIGHBOR OF,
  • 00:05:14.240 --> 00:05:16.270
  • YOUR COUSIN OFF.
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:18.050
  • IT MAY SEEM LIKE THEY'RE TOO
  • 00:05:18.050 --> 00:05:20.000
  • BAD, TOO ADDICTED, TOO
  • 00:05:20.000 --> 00:05:21.070
  • DEPRESSED, TOO FAR OFF COURSE.
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:23.170
  • THE ENEMY WOULDN'T BE FIGHTING
  • 00:05:23.170 --> 00:05:25.040
  • THEM THAT HARD IF THERE WASN'T
  • 00:05:25.040 --> 00:05:27.010
  • SOMETHING AMAZING ON THE INSIDE
  • 00:05:27.010 --> 00:05:29.060
  • OF THEM.
  • 00:05:29.060 --> 00:05:30.030
  • JESUS WAS IN GALILEE TEACHING
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:32.020
  • PEOPLE ON THE SHORE.
  • 00:05:32.020 --> 00:05:33.190
  • WHEN HE FINISHED THAT DAY,
  • 00:05:33.190 --> 00:05:34.290
  • INSTEAD OF GOIN' TO REST WHERE
  • 00:05:34.290 --> 00:05:36.160
  • HE NORMALLY DID, HE TOLD
  • 00:05:36.160 --> 00:05:38.080
  • THE DISCIPLES HE WANTED TO CROSS
  • 00:05:38.080 --> 00:05:40.120
  • TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE
  • 00:05:40.120 --> 00:05:42.200
  • WHERE THE MAN WAS.
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:43.290
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT,
  • 00:05:43.290 --> 00:05:45.120
  • WHILE THEY WERE ON THE BOAT
  • 00:05:45.120 --> 00:05:46.250
  • THE WAVES STARTED CRASHING
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:50.140
  • OVER THE BOAT FILLING IT
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:52.070
  • WITH WATER, LOOKED LIKE IT WAS
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:54.050
  • GOING TO SINK.
  • 00:05:54.050 --> 00:05:55.040
  • JESUS WAS ASLEEP IN THE BACK.
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:57.050
  • THE DISCIPLES FRANTICALLY RAN.
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:58.230
  • "JESUS, WAKE UP.
  • 00:05:58.230 --> 00:06:00.020
  • WE'RE ABOUT TO DIE."
  • 00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:01.110
  • JESUS STOOD UP AND SPOKE
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:03.140
  • TO THE STORM: "PEACE.
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:05.150
  • BE STILL."
  • 00:06:05.150 --> 00:06:06.150
  • SUDDENLY, THE WINDS AND WAVES
  • 00:06:06.150 --> 00:06:07.230
  • STOPPED; EVERYTHING WAS
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:08.270
  • PERFECTLY CALM.
  • 00:06:08.270 --> 00:06:10.160
  • THE NEXT MORNING, WHEN THEY
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:12.080
  • ARRIVED ON THE SHORE JESUS WAS
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:14.120
  • THIS DERANGED MAN CAME RUNNING
  • 00:06:16.140 --> 00:06:18.000
  • UP TO HIM, FELL ON HIS KNEES,
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:20.290
  • AND STARTED SCREAMING.
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:22.070
  • JESUS SPOKE TO THE DEMONS
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:23.250
  • AND TOLD THEM TO COME OUT.
  • 00:06:23.250 --> 00:06:25.250
  • INSTANTLY, THE MAN WAS HEALED.
  • 00:06:25.250 --> 00:06:27.240
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THEY SAW
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:30.000
  • THE MAN SITTING FULLY CLOTHED
  • 00:06:30.000 --> 00:06:32.060
  • IN HIS RIGHT MIND.
  • 00:06:32.060 --> 00:06:34.040
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS WHEN JESUS
  • 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:36.000
  • WAS ON THE BOAT HEADED TOWARD
  • 00:06:36.000 --> 00:06:38.090
  • THE MAN, THE HUGE STORM THAT
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:41.020
  • AROSE WASN'T RANDOM, WASN'T JUST
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:43.120
  • A ACT OF NATURE, JUST
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:45.060
  • A COINCIDENCE--THAT WAS
  • 00:06:45.060 --> 00:06:46.200
  • THE ENEMY TRYING TO STOP JESUS
  • 00:06:46.200 --> 00:06:49.010
  • YOU WOULD THINK THE ENEMY WOULD
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:53.070
  • BE SATISFIED.
  • 00:06:53.070 --> 00:06:54.000
  • I MEAN, THE MAN WAS POSSESSED,
  • 00:06:54.000 --> 00:06:55.220
  • OUT OF HIS MIND, CUTTING
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:06:57.060
  • HIMSELF.
  • 00:06:57.060 --> 00:06:58.140
  • SURELY, HE'S NO THREAT.
  • 00:06:58.140 --> 00:07:00.030
  • HE'LL NEVER DO ANYTHING GREAT.
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:02.060
  • NO, THE ENEMY KNEW DESPITE ALL
  • 00:07:02.060 --> 00:07:04.190
  • HE HAD DONE,
  • 00:07:04.190 --> 00:07:05.270
  • DESPITE THE CUTTING,
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.030
  • THIS MAN STILL HAD GREATNESS
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:10.290
  • IN HIM, THAT HE STILL HAD
  • 00:07:10.290 --> 00:07:13.040
  • A DESTINY TO FULFILL, DREAMS
  • 00:07:13.040 --> 00:07:15.230
  • TO ACCOMPLISH.
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:16.260
  • WHEN HE SAW JESUS CROSSING
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:18.050
  • THE LAKE HE THOUGHT I'VE GOT
  • 00:07:18.050 --> 00:07:19.230
  • TO STOP HIM.
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:21.010
  • I'VE GOT TO KEEP HIM
  • 00:07:21.010 --> 00:07:22.130
  • FROM GETTING HERE.
  • 00:07:22.130 --> 00:07:23.080
  • THERE IS A FIGHT FOR YOUR
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:24.280
  • FUTURE, BUT WHAT I WANT YOU

  • GOD IS FIGHTING FOR YOU.
  • 00:07:29.210 --> 00:07:31.270
  • THE ENEMY MAY SEND THE STORMS,
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:34.100
  • OPPOSITION THAT LOOKS TOO BIG,
  • 00:07:34.100 --> 00:07:36.100
  • DON'T WORRY, GOD CONTROLS
  • 00:07:36.100 --> 00:07:38.160
  • THE WINDS.

  • HE OVERRIDES EVERY NEGATIVE
  • 00:07:39.180 --> 00:07:42.050
  • FORCE.
  • 00:07:42.050 --> 00:07:42.240
  • THE WINDS THAT ARE TRYING
  • 00:07:42.240 --> 00:07:44.130
  • TO STOP YOU FROM YOUR DESTINY,
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:46.120
  • GOD IS SPEAKING TO THEM

  • AROUND.
  • 00:07:55.120 --> 00:07:56.200
  • THE STORM SEEMS DARKER
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:58.020
  • THAN EVER.
  • 00:07:58.020 --> 00:07:58.220
  • ON YOUR OWN YOU DON'T HAVE

  • TRYING TO STOP YOU.
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:10.140
  • FOR OUR GOD TO CALL, NO GIANT
  • 00:08:13.170 --> 00:08:16.170
  • TOO BIG FOR HIM TO DEFEAT, NO

  • FIRE TOO HOT THAT HE CAN'T STEP
  • 00:08:19.030 --> 00:08:21.210
  • IN AND BRING YOU OUT.
  • 00:08:21.210 --> 00:08:23.270
  • THIS MAN THAT WAS DERANGED, HE
  • 00:08:23.270 --> 00:08:25.230
  • DIDN'T KNOW THAT JESUS HAD
  • 00:08:25.230 --> 00:08:27.100
  • SPOKEN TO THE WINDS.
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:29.000

  • TO KEEP GOD FROM GETTING TO YOU.
  • 00:08:39.270 --> 00:08:42.070
  • HOW MANY TIMES GOD HAS SAID,
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:44.140
  • "PEACE.
  • 00:08:44.140 --> 00:08:45.020

  • TO GET TO YOU.
  • 00:09:01.240 --> 00:09:03.110
  • SOME OF THESE BATTLES TOOK PLACE
  • 00:09:03.110 --> 00:09:05.190
  • WHEN YOU WERE A SMALL CHILD.
  • 00:09:05.190 --> 00:09:07.280
  • THE ENEMY KNEW WAY BACK THEN
  • 00:09:07.280 --> 00:09:09.250
  • WHAT YOU WERE CALLED TO BE.
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:11.230
  • HE COULD SEE THE FAVOR

  • FOR GREATNESS.
  • 00:09:17.090 --> 00:09:17.290
  • SO HE HAS WORKED OVERTIME TRYIN'
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:20.050
  • TO STOP YOUR DESTINY
  • 00:09:20.050 --> 00:09:21.200
  • THROUGH THINGS YOU HAD
  • 00:09:21.200 --> 00:09:23.020
  • MY FATHER, AS A TWO YEAR-OLD
  • 00:09:25.020 --> 00:09:26.100
  • LITTLE BOY, WAS WALKING
  • 00:09:26.100 --> 00:09:27.220
  • BY A FIRE AND HE FELL INTO IT.
  • 00:09:27.220 --> 00:09:30.150
  • NOBODY WAS AROUND, HE COULD'VE
  • 00:09:30.150 --> 00:09:32.140
  • BEEN KILLED, OUT OF NOWHERE
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:34.120
  • HE COULDN'T SAVE HIMSELF, THAT
  • 00:09:36.200 --> 00:09:38.200
  • WAS GOD FIGHTING FOR HIM.
  • 00:09:38.200 --> 00:09:40.240
  • THE ENEMY SENT THE STORM,
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:42.130
  • BUT GOD SAID, "PEACE.
  • 00:09:42.130 --> 00:09:43.230
  • BE STILL.
  • 00:09:43.230 --> 00:09:45.010
  • I HAVE THE FINAL SAY."
  • 00:09:45.010 --> 00:09:46.240
  • THE ENEMY CAN'T STOP YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:49.010
  • DAVID SAID IN PSALM 30, "LORD,
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:53.210
  • I PRAISE YOU, FOR YOU REFUSE
  • 00:09:53.210 --> 00:09:55.150
  • TO LET MY ENEMIES TRIUMPH
  • 00:09:55.150 --> 00:09:57.240
  • OVER ME."
  • 00:09:57.240 --> 00:09:58.220
  • WHY DID THAT FIRE NOT TAKE MY
  • 00:09:58.220 --> 00:10:00.190
  • FATHER OUT?
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:01.150
  • GOD REFUSED TO LET THE ENEMY
  • 00:10:01.150 --> 00:10:03.190
  • TRIUMPH.
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:04.050
  • WHY DID THAT ACCIDENT NOT
  • 00:10:04.050 --> 00:10:05.260
  • HARM YOU?
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:06.120
  • GOD REFUSED TO LET IT HARM YOU.
  • 00:10:06.120 --> 00:10:09.020
  • WHY DID THAT UNHEALTHY CHILDHOOD
  • 00:10:11.010 --> 00:10:12.190
  • NOT STOP YOU?
  • 00:10:12.190 --> 00:10:13.220
  • WHY HASN'T THAT ADDICTION FINISH

  • YOU OFF?
  • 00:10:15.180 --> 00:10:16.110
  • BECAUSE GOD'S PURPOSE IS MORE
  • 00:10:16.110 --> 00:10:18.210
  • POWERFUL THAN THE ENEMY'S PLAN.
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:21.010
  • THE FORCES OF DARKNESS CANNOT
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:22.280

  • FOR YOU.
  • 00:10:24.260 --> 00:10:26.030
  • AND IF YOU ONLY KNEW ALL
  • 00:10:26.030 --> 00:10:28.020
  • THE THINGS GOD HAS REFUSED
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:29.240
  • TO LET HAPPEN TO YOU, YOU MAY
  • 00:10:29.240 --> 00:10:32.010
  • HAVE HAD SOME BAD BREAKS
  • 00:10:32.010 --> 00:10:33.200
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS, BUT JUST
  • 00:10:33.200 --> 00:10:34.220
  • THE FACT THAT YOU'RE STILL HERE
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:36.250
  • IS A SIGN GOD'S FAVOR IS ON
  • 00:10:36.250 --> 00:10:39.150
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:39.150 --> 00:10:41.070
  • THERE MAY BE OBSTACLES TRYING
  • 00:10:41.070 --> 00:10:42.280
  • TO STOP YOU NOW.
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:44.100
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:10:44.100 --> 00:10:45.250
  • IT'S BECAUSE THERE'S GREATNESS
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:48.010
  • IN YOU.
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:49.050
  • THE ENEMY DOESN'T COME

  • AGAINST PEOPLE THAT DON'T HAVE
  • 00:10:50.130 --> 00:10:52.020
  • ANYTHING.
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:53.090
  • IF YOU WEREN'T A THREAT HE'D
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:55.110
  • LEAVE YOU ALONE.
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:56.120
  • IN ONE SENSE YOU CAN TAKE IT AS
  • 00:10:56.120 --> 00:10:58.220
  • A COMPLIMENT.
  • 00:10:58.220 --> 00:10:59.090
  • BUT I KNOW IT'S BECAUSE I HAVE

  • A BIG DESTINY.
  • 00:11:03.100 --> 00:11:04.180
  • HAD SOME BAD BREAKS,
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:05.290
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS, BUT THEY COULD
  • 00:11:05.290 --> 00:11:07.190
  • NOT FINISH ME OFF.
  • 00:11:07.190 --> 00:11:08.170
  • I'M STILL STANDING.
  • 00:11:08.170 --> 00:11:10.140
  • THE ENEMY WOULDN'T HAVE WASTED
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:12.070
  • SO MUCH TIME AND ENERGY ON YOU
  • 00:11:12.070 --> 00:11:14.220
  • IF THERE WASN'T SOMETHING
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:16.100
  • AMAZING IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:11:16.100 --> 00:11:17.280
  • NOW, DO YOUR PART; STAY

  • IN FAITH.
  • 00:11:19.190 --> 00:11:20.110
  • DON'T GO AROUND COMPLAINING

  • ABOUT WHAT DIDN'T WORK OUT, WHAT
  • 00:11:21.190 --> 00:11:23.170
  • YOU DIDN'T GET.

  • GOD IS STILL WORKING.
  • 00:11:24.240 --> 00:11:26.210
  • MAKE UP FOR WHAT WAS UNFAIR.
  • 00:11:29.070 --> 00:11:31.070
  • HE WILL PAY YOU BACK
  • 00:11:31.070 --> 00:11:32.190
  • FOR THE WRONGS THAT WERE DONE.
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:34.100
  • WAY BACK AS A SMALL CHILD,
  • 00:11:34.100 --> 00:11:36.160
  • THE ENEMY KNEW MY FATHER WOULD
  • 00:11:36.160 --> 00:11:38.240
  • BE THE FIRST ONE IN OUR FAMILY
  • 00:11:38.240 --> 00:11:40.250
  • TO GIVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST.
  • 00:11:40.250 --> 00:11:42.180
  • HE KNEW HE WOULD BE THE ONE
  • 00:11:42.180 --> 00:11:44.260
  • TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:46.260
  • THAT HAD LIMITED US
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:48.140
  • FOR GENERATIONS.
  • 00:11:48.140 --> 00:11:49.090
  • HE KNEW DADDY WOULD START
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:50.230
  • LAKEWOOD, THAT HE WOULD LEAVE
  • 00:11:50.230 --> 00:11:52.090
  • CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:53.180
  • TO CONTINUE IT ON.
  • 00:11:53.180 --> 00:11:55.110
  • NO WONDER HE TRIED TO STOP HIM
  • 00:11:55.110 --> 00:11:57.190
  • IN THE FIRE, NO WONDER HIS
  • 00:11:57.190 --> 00:11:59.280
  • TO DO WAS PICK COTTON, THAT HE
  • 00:12:02.090 --> 00:12:03.140
  • COULD NEVER BECOME A MINISTER.
  • 00:12:03.140 --> 00:12:05.070
  • NO WONDER ONE CHURCH ASKED HIM
  • 00:12:05.070 --> 00:12:07.090
  • TO RESIGN BECAUSE HIS MESSAGE
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:09.000
  • OF FAITH AND VICTORY DIDN'T
  • 00:12:09.000 --> 00:12:10.290
  • FIT IN.
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:11.200
  • WHEN YOU HAVE A BIG FUTURE
  • 00:12:11.200 --> 00:12:13.110
  • THE ENEMY IS NOT GOING TO JUST
  • 00:12:13.110 --> 00:12:15.120
  • LET YOU FULFILL IT.
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:18.250
  • PAUL SAID, 1 CORINTHIANS: "A
  • 00:12:18.250 --> 00:12:20.280
  • WIDE DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY IS OPEN
  • 00:12:20.280 --> 00:12:23.130
  • TO ME AND THERE ARE MANY
  • 00:12:23.130 --> 00:12:26.080
  • ADVERSARIES."
  • 00:12:26.080 --> 00:12:26.230
  • THE MANY ADVERSARIES DOESN'T
  • 00:12:26.230 --> 00:12:28.060
  • MEAN GOD HAS FORGOTTEN
  • 00:12:28.060 --> 00:12:29.200
  • ABOUT YOU, DOESN'T MEAN YOU'VE
  • 00:12:29.200 --> 00:12:31.160
  • BEEN LEFT OUT.
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.190
  • IT'S BECAUSE OF THE WIDE DOORS
  • 00:12:32.190 --> 00:12:34.170
  • THAT ARE ABOUT TO OPEN.
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:36.060
  • IT'S BECAUSE OF THE FAVOR THAT'S
  • 00:12:36.060 --> 00:12:38.160
  • IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:12:38.160 --> 00:12:40.020
  • YOU CAN LOOK BACK OVER YOUR LIFE
  • 00:12:40.020 --> 00:12:41.150
  • AND SEE THINGS THAT CAME
  • 00:12:41.150 --> 00:12:42.230
  • AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:12:42.230 --> 00:12:44.010
  • SOME THAT YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:45.270
  • WITH, THINGS THAT WEREN'T FAIR:
  • 00:12:45.270 --> 00:12:47.070
  • YOU WERE LEFT OUT,
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:48.270
  • MISCHARACTERIZE, MADE TO
  • 00:12:48.270 --> 00:12:50.270
  • LOOK BAD.
  • 00:12:50.270 --> 00:12:51.250
  • OTHER TIMES, YOU TRIED TO STEP
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:53.070
  • UP TO A NEW LEVEL, YOU TRIED
  • 00:12:53.070 --> 00:12:54.260
  • TO SET A NEW STANDARD,
  • 00:12:54.260 --> 00:12:56.130
  • BUT OPPOSITION CAME
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:12:57.120
  • OUT OF THE WOODWORK, THINGS THAT
  • 00:12:57.120 --> 00:12:59.160
  • YOU'VE NEVER FACED.
  • 00:12:59.160 --> 00:13:00.200
  • THERE ARE FORCES THAT DON'T WANT
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:02.260
  • YOU TO TAKE NEW GROUND.
  • 00:13:02.260 --> 00:13:04.210
  • WHEN THE ENEMY SEES YOU START
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:06.150
  • TO MAKE PROGRESS, HE'LL SEND
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:08.010
  • THE STORM, THE WINDS, THE WAVES.
  • 00:13:08.010 --> 00:13:10.170
  • THAT'S WHEN GOD WILL STEP
  • 00:13:10.170 --> 00:13:12.040
  • UP AND SAY, "PEACE.
  • 00:13:12.040 --> 00:13:13.130
  • BE STILL."
  • 00:13:13.130 --> 00:13:14.290
  • THE STORMS CANNOT STOP OUR GOD.
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:18.150
  • WHAT YOU'RE UP AGAINST IS NOT
  • 00:13:18.150 --> 00:13:20.060
  • A SIGN THAT YOU'RE STUCK, IT'S
  • 00:13:20.060 --> 00:13:21.270
  • A SIGN PROMOTION IS COMING.
  • 00:13:21.270 --> 00:13:24.130
  • THE STORM IS A SIGN GOD IS CLOSE
  • 00:13:24.130 --> 00:13:27.010
  • TO THE SHORE.
  • 00:13:27.010 --> 00:13:28.010
  • YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE THINGS
  • 00:13:28.010 --> 00:13:29.270
  • WHEN MOSES WAS BORN THE PHARAOH
  • 00:13:31.250 --> 00:13:33.200
  • HAD PUT OUT A DECREE THAT ALL
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:36.000
  • THE HEBREW MALE BABIES WERE
  • 00:13:36.000 --> 00:13:38.050
  • TO BE KILLED AT BIRTH.
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:40.090
  • PHARAOH WAS CONCERNED THAT
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:41.190
  • THE ISRAELITES WOULD GET BIGGER
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:43.150
  • THAN THE EGYPTIANS AND
  • 00:13:43.150 --> 00:13:44.270
  • OVERTAKE THEM.
  • 00:13:44.270 --> 00:13:45.180
  • THAT MOSES WOULD DELIVER
  • 00:13:47.260 --> 00:13:49.070
  • THE ISRAELITES OUT OF SLAVERY.
  • 00:13:49.070 --> 00:13:51.180
  • IT WASN'T A COINCIDENCE THAT
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:54.020
  • MOSES WAS BORN INTO ADVERSITY,
  • 00:13:54.020 --> 00:13:56.170
  • BORN WITH FORCES AGAINST HIM--
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:58.230
  • NOTHING HE HAD DONE.
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:00.180
  • WASN'T HIS POOR CHOICES,
  • 00:14:00.180 --> 00:14:02.200
  • BUT FROM HIS BIRTH THE ENEMY WAS
  • 00:14:02.200 --> 00:14:04.180
  • HIS MOTHER HID HIM IN THE HOUSE
  • 00:14:06.170 --> 00:14:08.210
  • FOR THREE MONTHS.
  • 00:14:08.210 --> 00:14:09.220
  • EVENTUALLY, HE GOT TOO BIG.
  • 00:14:09.220 --> 00:14:11.110
  • SHE THOUGHT HE WOULD BE FOUND
  • 00:14:11.110 --> 00:14:12.270
  • AND KILLED, SO SHE PUT HIM
  • 00:14:12.270 --> 00:14:14.150
  • IN A SMALL BASKET AND SENT HIM
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:16.290
  • FLOATING DOWN THE NILE RIVER.
  • 00:14:16.290 --> 00:14:18.230
  • IT JUST SO HAPPENED PHARAOH'S
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:20.220
  • WHEN SHE HEARD THE CRIES COMING
  • 00:14:23.060 --> 00:14:24.210
  • FROM THE BASKET, SHE OPENED IT
  • 00:14:24.210 --> 00:14:26.110
  • AND COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:27.220
  • SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:30.000
  • LITTLE BABY.
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:30.230
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS SHE KNEW
  • 00:14:30.230 --> 00:14:32.230
  • HE WAS A HEBREW BABY.
  • 00:14:32.230 --> 00:14:34.240
  • SHE KNEW HE WASN'T SUPPOSED
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:36.150
  • TO LIVE.
  • 00:14:36.150 --> 00:14:37.050
  • HER FATHER WAS THE ONE THAT MADE
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:39.150
  • THE DECREE, BUT FOR SOME REASON
  • 00:14:39.150 --> 00:14:41.170
  • SHE AND HER FATHER, THE PHARAOH,
  • 00:14:41.170 --> 00:14:43.260
  • DECIDED IT WAS OKAY FOR HER
  • 00:14:43.260 --> 00:14:46.140
  • TO KEEP THE BABY AND RAISE IT
  • 00:14:46.140 --> 00:14:49.050
  • AS HER OWN.
  • 00:14:49.050 --> 00:14:49.280
  • WHEN GOD IS FIGHTING YOUR
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:51.180
  • BATTLES THINGS WILL HAPPEN THAT
  • 00:14:51.180 --> 00:14:53.080
  • DON'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:54.280
  • WHEN HE SAYS, "PEACE.
  • 00:14:54.280 --> 00:14:56.060
  • BE STILL," STORMS THAT LOOK
  • 00:14:56.060 --> 00:14:58.070
  • IMPOSSIBLE WILL SUDDENLY
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:14:59.270
  • CALM DOWN.
  • 00:14:59.270 --> 00:15:01.060
  • MAYBE YOU WERE RAISED
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:02.110
  • IN AN ENVIRONMENT THAT WASN'T
  • 00:15:02.110 --> 00:15:03.250
  • REAL HEALTHY.
  • 00:15:03.250 --> 00:15:05.040
  • YOU HAVE PLENTY OF REASONS TO BE
  • 00:15:05.040 --> 00:15:06.260
  • SOUR, THINK THAT YOU COULD NEVER
  • 00:15:06.260 --> 00:15:08.110
  • DO ANYTHING GREAT, YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:15:08.110 --> 00:15:10.040
  • THROUGH TOO MUCH.
  • 00:15:10.040 --> 00:15:11.060
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:13.130
  • A MOSES?
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:14.060
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT ADVERSITY
  • 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:15.290
  • IS NOT A SIGN THAT GREATNESS IS
  • 00:15:15.290 --> 00:15:18.020
  • IN YOU?
  • 00:15:18.020 --> 00:15:19.100
  • THAT THE ENEMY TRIED TO PUSH YOU
  • 00:15:19.100 --> 00:15:21.060
  • DOWN TO KEEP YOU FROM LEAVING
  • 00:15:21.060 --> 00:15:22.240
  • YOUR MARK, BUT GOD STEPPED
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:24.200
  • UP AND SAID, "PEACE.
  • 00:15:24.200 --> 00:15:26.080
  • BE STILL."
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:27.120
  • HE DIDN'T BRING YOU
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:29.030
  • THROUGH BECAUSE YOU'RE ORDINARY.
  • 00:15:29.030 --> 00:15:30.250
  • NOW, YOU NEED TO STEP INTO YOUR
  • 00:15:30.250 --> 00:15:33.020
  • GREATNESS.
  • 00:15:33.020 --> 00:15:34.020
  • QUIT BELIEVING THOSE LIES THAT
  • 00:15:34.020 --> 00:15:35.120
  • YOU'VE HAD TOO MANY BAD BREAKS,
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:37.110
  • TOO MUCH AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:15:37.110 --> 00:15:38.200
  • IT'S TOO UNFAIR.
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:39.270
  • IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE FAIR
  • 00:15:39.270 --> 00:15:41.200
  • FOR GOD TO DO SOMETHING AWESOME
  • 00:15:41.200 --> 00:15:43.130
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:15:43.130 --> 00:15:44.220
  • IN FACT, WHEN IT'S NOT FAIR,
  • 00:15:44.220 --> 00:15:46.260
  • WHEN YOU'RE THE UNDERDOG, WHEN
  • 00:15:46.260 --> 00:15:48.190
  • THE ENEMY'S TRYIN' TO STOP YOU,
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:50.150
  • THAT'S WHEN GOD STEPS
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:51.220
  • IT WASN'T FAIR THAT DAVID'S OWN
  • 00:15:54.050 --> 00:15:56.050
  • FAMILY BELITTLED HIM, BUT THAT
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:57.290
  • DIDN'T STOP HIM FROM TAKING
  • 00:15:57.290 --> 00:15:59.230
  • THE THRONE.
  • 00:15:59.230 --> 00:16:00.170
  • IT WASN'T FAIR THAT JOSEPH WAS
  • 00:16:00.170 --> 00:16:02.070
  • THROWN INTO A PIT, LIED ABOUT,
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:03.280
  • PUT IN PRISON, BUT THAT DIDN'T
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.170
  • STOP HIM FROM BECOMING THE PRIME
  • 00:16:05.170 --> 00:16:07.060
  • MINISTER.
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:08.150
  • IT WASN'T FAIR THAT MOSES WAS
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:10.120
  • BORN UNDER A DEATH THREAT,
  • 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:11.290
  • PARENTS HAD TO HIDE HIM,
  • 00:16:11.290 --> 00:16:13.130
  • BUT THAT DIDN'T STOP HIM
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:15.070
  • WHO SAYS IT HAS TO BE FAIR
  • 00:16:17.140 --> 00:16:19.290
  • FOR YOU TO FULFILL YOUR DESTINY?
  • 00:16:19.290 --> 00:16:22.060
  • NO BAD BREAK HAS CANCELED GOD'S
  • 00:16:22.060 --> 00:16:24.190
  • PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:26.090
  • NO INJUSTICE, NO DISAPPOINTMENT,
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:28.170
  • NO PERSON.
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:29.210
  • THE REASON IT'S NOT FAIR IS
  • 00:16:29.210 --> 00:16:31.290
  • BECAUSE THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOU
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:33.260
  • THAT THE ENEMY DOESN'T WANT OUT.
  • 00:16:33.260 --> 00:16:36.070
  • THERE'S AN ASSIGNMENT GOD HAS
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:38.090
  • FOR YOU THAT THE ENEMY IS TRYING
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:40.130
  • TO STOP.
  • 00:16:40.130 --> 00:16:41.200
  • AN ANOINTING, AN EMPOWERMENT,
  • 00:16:41.200 --> 00:16:43.060
  • A FAVOR THAT HE DOESN'T WANT YOU
  • 00:16:43.060 --> 00:16:45.260
  • TO SEE.
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:47.040
  • THE GOOD NEWS: HE DOESN'T HAVE
  • 00:16:47.040 --> 00:16:48.200
  • THE FINAL SAY.
  • 00:16:48.200 --> 00:16:49.130
  • NOW GET READY TO STEP INTO YOUR
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:52.290
  • GREATNESS.
  • 00:16:52.290 --> 00:16:53.150
  • MY SISTER, LISA, WAS BORN
  • 00:16:53.150 --> 00:16:55.060
  • WITH SOMETHING LIKE CEREBRAL
  • 00:16:55.060 --> 00:16:56.170
  • PALSY.
  • 00:16:56.170 --> 00:16:57.240
  • THE DOCTORS TOLD MY PARENTS SHE
  • 00:16:57.240 --> 00:16:59.110
  • MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO WALK
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:01.000
  • OR FEED HERSELF.
  • 00:17:01.000 --> 00:17:02.090
  • FIRST YEAR SHE COULDN'T LIFT HER
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:04.180
  • HEAD, HAD NO SUCKING REFLEXES,
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:06.160
  • BUT BY THE GRACE OF GOD,
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:08.210
  • OVER TIME, SHE DEFIED THE ODDS--
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:10.260
  • GROWING UP THERE WERE FIVE OF US
  • 00:17:13.120 --> 00:17:15.060
  • KIDS IN THE HOUSE AND ALL OF US,
  • 00:17:15.060 --> 00:17:17.130
  • EXCEPT LISA, WE'RE VERY
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:19.280
  • ATHLETIC.
  • 00:17:19.280 --> 00:17:20.180
  • PLAYED SPORTS, STAYED ACTIVE,
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:22.070
  • BUT LISA HAVING COME
  • 00:17:22.070 --> 00:17:23.270
  • THROUGH THAT BIRTH INJURY
  • 00:17:23.270 --> 00:17:25.060
  • COULDN'T DO EVERYTHING WE COULD.
  • 00:17:25.060 --> 00:17:26.250
  • WHEN WE WERE CHOOSING TEAMS
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:28.110
  • TO PLAY KICKBALL WITH OUR
  • 00:17:28.110 --> 00:17:29.270
  • FRIENDS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD,
  • 00:17:29.270 --> 00:17:31.180
  • LISA WOULD ALWAYS BE CHOSEN
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:33.220
  • TOWARD THE VERY END RIGHT
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:36.120
  • BEFORE MY BROTHER, PAUL.
  • 00:17:36.120 --> 00:17:38.260
  • BAD BREAK AFTER ANOTHER
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:42.140
  • FOR LISA.
  • 00:17:42.140 --> 00:17:43.210
  • IN HER EARLY 20S, SHE WENT
  • 00:17:43.210 --> 00:17:45.250
  • THROUGH A BREAKUP
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:46.260
  • IN A RELATIONSHIP--VERY
  • 00:17:46.260 --> 00:17:48.240
  • HURTFUL, VERY UNFAIR.
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.090
  • WORKING WITH US HERE
  • 00:17:52.080 --> 00:17:52.240
  • AT THE CHURCH OPENING MY
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:55.000
  • FATHER'S MAIL.
  • 00:17:55.000 --> 00:17:55.260
  • ONE DAY, SHE OPEN THIS PACKAGE
  • 00:17:55.260 --> 00:17:58.000
  • AND IT EXPLODED IN HER LAP.
  • 00:17:58.000 --> 00:18:00.070
  • IT WAS A MAIL BOMB, BLEW UP PART
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:02.260
  • SHE WAS RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL,
  • 00:18:04.280 --> 00:18:06.220
  • HAD TO HAVE SURGERY.
  • 00:18:06.220 --> 00:18:08.000
  • INVESTIGATORS TOLD US IF
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:09.140
  • THE PACKAGE WOULD'VE BEEN TURN
  • 00:18:09.140 --> 00:18:11.100
  • LONG WAYS IN HER LAP, INSTEAD
  • 00:18:11.100 --> 00:18:13.140
  • OF SIDEWAYS, SHE WOULD'VE BEEN
  • 00:18:13.140 --> 00:18:15.080
  • INSTANTLY KILLED.
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:16.280
  • IT WAS A PIPE BOMB; WHEN IT
  • 00:18:16.280 --> 00:18:18.250
  • EXPLODED, THE NAILS BLEW
  • 00:18:18.250 --> 00:18:20.030
  • OUT SIDEWAYS AWAY FROM HER
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:22.270
  • INSTEAD OF INTO HER.
  • 00:18:22.270 --> 00:18:25.050
  • WHY DIDN'T LISA HAVE ALL THESE
  • 00:18:25.050 --> 00:18:27.180
  • THINGS COMING AGAINST HER
  • 00:18:27.180 --> 00:18:29.060
  • SINCE SHE WAS A BABY?
  • 00:18:29.060 --> 00:18:30.230
  • THE ENEMY KNEW THERE WAS
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:32.180
  • SOMETHING SPECIAL IN HER.
  • 00:18:32.180 --> 00:18:34.030
  • AN ANOINTING TO TEACH, A GIFTING
  • 00:18:34.030 --> 00:18:36.050
  • TO LEAD, A FAVOR TO HELP BUILD
  • 00:18:36.050 --> 00:18:38.190
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:38.190 --> 00:18:39.260
  • EVERY TIME THE ENEMY SENT
  • 00:18:39.260 --> 00:18:41.190
  • A STORM, GOD STEPPED
  • 00:18:41.190 --> 00:18:43.030
  • UP AND SAID, "PEACE.
  • 00:18:43.030 --> 00:18:44.100
  • BE STILL."
  • 00:18:44.100 --> 00:18:45.190
  • WHEN THE BOMB EXPLODED, GOD
  • 00:18:45.190 --> 00:18:47.070
  • SAID, "BOMB, YOU CAN'T FINISH
  • 00:18:47.070 --> 00:18:48.250
  • HER OFF.
  • 00:18:48.250 --> 00:18:50.030
  • I HAVE THE FINAL SAY."
  • 00:18:50.030 --> 00:18:51.100
  • GOD REFUSED TO LET HER ENEMIES
  • 00:18:51.100 --> 00:18:53.250
  • TRIUMPH OVER HER.
  • 00:18:53.250 --> 00:18:55.020
  • LISA SAYS, "I OPENED THE BOMB
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:58.090
  • AND NOW, I AM THE BOMB."
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:19:01.180
  • WHAT'S COME AGAINST YOU HAS NOT
  • 00:19:01.180 --> 00:19:04.110
  • BEEN RANDOM.
  • 00:19:04.110 --> 00:19:05.090
  • THOSE WERE STRATEGIC ATTACKS
  • 00:19:05.090 --> 00:19:07.060
  • FOR ONE REASON, BECAUSE
  • 00:19:07.060 --> 00:19:09.030
  • OF WHAT'S IN YOU: PURPOSE,
  • 00:19:09.060 --> 00:19:12.060
  • DESTINY, GREATNESS.
  • 00:19:12.060 --> 00:19:13.130
  • IF YOU'LL KEEP MOVING FORWARD,
  • 00:19:13.130 --> 00:19:15.030
  • NOT GET BITTER OVER WHAT HASN'T
  • 00:19:15.030 --> 00:19:17.050
  • WORKED OUT, AT SOME POINT YOU'RE
  • 00:19:17.050 --> 00:19:18.290
  • GOING TO STEP IN TO WHAT
  • 00:19:18.290 --> 00:19:20.240
  • THE ENEMY DIDN'T WANT YOU
  • 00:19:20.240 --> 00:19:22.150
  • OPPORTUNITY, LIKE YOU'VE NEVER
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:26.140
  • DREAMED.
  • 00:19:26.140 --> 00:19:26.290
  • GOD IS TAKING YOU WHERE YOU
  • 00:19:26.290 --> 00:19:28.260
  • COULDN'T GO ON YOUR OWN.
  • 00:19:28.260 --> 00:19:30.140
  • A FRIEND OF MINE GREW
  • 00:19:30.140 --> 00:19:31.180
  • UP IN A LARGE FAMILY IN PUERTO
  • 00:19:31.180 --> 00:19:33.070
  • RICO, HAD 17 BROTHERS
  • 00:19:33.070 --> 00:19:35.080
  • AND SISTERS.
  • 00:19:35.080 --> 00:19:36.080
  • HIS PARENTS WERE HEAVILY
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:38.050
  • INVOLVED IN WITCHCRAFT.
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:39.190
  • WHEN HE WAS THREE YEARS-OLD, HIS
  • 00:19:39.190 --> 00:19:41.130
  • MOTHER WAS IN A TRANCE, SHE
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:43.080
  • DECLARED OVER HIM THAT HE WAS
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:45.190
  • HE WAS TOO YOUNG TO KNOW ANY
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:49.090
  • BETTER BUT IMAGINE HAVING PEOPLE
  • 00:19:49.090 --> 00:19:50.250
  • SPEAKING THINGS LIKE THAT
  • 00:19:50.250 --> 00:19:52.010
  • OVER YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:52.010 --> 00:19:52.290
  • DIDN'T SEEM FAIR, LOOKED LIKE HE
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:55.030
  • WAS AT A DISADVANTAGE,
  • 00:19:55.030 --> 00:19:56.170
  • BUT PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE
  • 00:19:56.170 --> 00:19:58.170
  • FINAL SAY.
  • 00:19:58.170 --> 00:19:59.180
  • WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE IS
  • 00:19:59.180 --> 00:20:01.010
  • BEHIND THE SCENES: THE MOST HIGH
  • 00:20:01.010 --> 00:20:03.060
  • GOD IS FIGHTING FOR YOU.
  • 00:20:03.060 --> 00:20:05.050
  • HE OVERRULES EVERY NEGATIVE
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:07.100
  • THING THAT PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN.
  • 00:20:07.100 --> 00:20:10.010
  • 15 YEARS-OLD, THIS YOUNG MAN
  • 00:20:10.010 --> 00:20:11.210
  • MOVED TO NEW YORK CITY WITH ONE
  • 00:20:11.210 --> 00:20:14.020
  • OF HIS BROTHERS.
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:15.100
  • SIX MONTHS LATER HE WAS
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:16.170
  • THE LEADER OF ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:20:16.170 --> 00:20:18.100
  • VIOLENT AND FEARED STREET GANGS.
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:21.010
  • FIGHTING AND STEALING WE'RE
  • 00:20:21.010 --> 00:20:22.140
  • A PART OF HIS EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:20:22.140 --> 00:20:24.190
  • A YEAR LATER HIS BEST FRIEND WAS
  • 00:20:24.190 --> 00:20:27.030
  • STABBED AND DIED IN HIS ARMS.
  • 00:20:27.030 --> 00:20:29.060
  • LIKE THE DERANGED MAN THAT WAS
  • 00:20:29.060 --> 00:20:30.270
  • CUTTING HIMSELF, IT DIDN'T SEEM
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:32.110
  • LIKE THIS YOUNG MAN HAD ANY
  • 00:20:32.110 --> 00:20:34.120
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:20:34.120 --> 00:20:35.060
  • HE WOULD NEVER AMOUNT TO MUCH,
  • 00:20:35.060 --> 00:20:36.230
  • HE WAS TOO FAR OFF COURSE.
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:38.200
  • BUT WHAT HE COULDN'T SEE WAS GOD
  • 00:20:38.200 --> 00:20:40.210
  • WAS CROSSING THE LAKE TO GET
  • 00:20:40.210 --> 00:20:42.130
  • TO HIM.
  • 00:20:42.130 --> 00:20:43.200
  • GOD WAS ON THE WAY TO TURN
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:45.220
  • THINGS AROUND.
  • 00:20:45.220 --> 00:20:46.110
  • WHEN FORCES COME AGAINST YOU
  • 00:20:46.110 --> 00:20:47.280
  • THAT STRONGLY, YOU CAN BE
  • 00:20:47.280 --> 00:20:49.170
  • ASSURED THERE'S A GREAT PURPOSE
  • 00:20:49.170 --> 00:20:51.130
  • FOR YOUR LIFE, THERE'S GREAT
  • 00:20:51.130 --> 00:20:53.090
  • POTENTIAL ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:55.220
  • UP TO HIM ON THE STREET
  • 00:20:58.000 --> 00:20:59.040
  • AND INVITED HIM TO A SERVICE
  • 00:20:59.040 --> 00:21:01.000
  • THAT HE WAS HAVING.
  • 00:21:01.000 --> 00:21:02.070
  • THIS YOUNG MAN MADE FUN OF HIM
  • 00:21:02.070 --> 00:21:04.030
  • AND THREATENED TO BEAT HIM UP.
  • 00:21:04.030 --> 00:21:05.220
  • BUT WHEN YOU PLANT A SEED, YOU
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.150
  • NEVER KNOW WHEN IT'S GOING
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:08.240
  • TO TAKE ROOT.
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:10.060
  • AND HIS WHOLE GANG SHOWED
  • 00:21:12.220 --> 00:21:14.020
  • UP AT THE SERVICE.
  • 00:21:14.020 --> 00:21:15.150
  • THEY WERE PLANNING TO DISRUPT
  • 00:21:15.150 --> 00:21:17.110
  • THINGS AND CAUSE TROUBLE,
  • 00:21:17.110 --> 00:21:18.270
  • BUT WHEN HE BEGAN TO HEAR
  • 00:21:18.270 --> 00:21:20.190
  • ABOUT THE LOVE AND FORGIVENESS
  • 00:21:20.190 --> 00:21:22.040
  • OF OUR GOD, HE FELT SOMETHING
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:24.000
  • ON THE INSIDE THAT HE HAD NEVER
  • 00:21:24.000 --> 00:21:26.070
  • FELT.
  • 00:21:26.070 --> 00:21:27.140
  • AT THE END OF THE SERVICE,
  • 00:21:27.140 --> 00:21:29.060
  • AGAINST ALL ODDS, HE STOOD
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:30.200
  • UP AND GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST.
  • 00:21:30.200 --> 00:21:33.030
  • INSTANTLY, CHAINS WERE BROKEN
  • 00:21:33.030 --> 00:21:34.290
  • OFF OF HIS MIND.
  • 00:21:34.290 --> 00:21:36.260
  • HE FELT A NEW SENSE OF PURPOSE,
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:39.000
  • A NEW SENSE OF DESTINY.
  • 00:21:39.000 --> 00:21:40.170
  • HE KNEW HE WAS NO LONGER THE SON
  • 00:21:40.170 --> 00:21:43.010
  • OF SATAN; HE WAS THE SON
  • 00:21:43.010 --> 00:21:44.280
  • OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:47.040
  • WHEN YOU CAN'T FIGHT
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:48.130
  • FOR YOURSELF, YOU HAVE TO KNOW
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:50.110
  • GOD IS FIGHTING FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:50.110 --> 00:21:52.210
  • HE IS BIGGER THAN ANY FORCE
  • 00:21:52.210 --> 00:21:54.190
  • THAT'S TRYING TO HOLD YOU BACK.
  • 00:21:54.190 --> 00:21:56.180
  • HE'S BIGGER THAN NEGATIVE WORDS
  • 00:21:56.180 --> 00:21:58.100
  • THAT WERE SPOKEN OVER YOU.
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:22:00.050
  • HE'S BIGGER THAN THE ADDICTION,
  • 00:22:00.050 --> 00:22:01.220
  • BIGGER THAN HOW YOU WERE RAISED,
  • 00:22:01.220 --> 00:22:03.180
  • BIGGER THAN THAT SICKNESS.
  • 00:22:03.180 --> 00:22:05.060
  • YOU WOULDN'T HAVE THAT
  • 00:22:05.060 --> 00:22:06.170
  • DIFFICULTY IF THERE WASN'T
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:07.280
  • GREATNESS IN YOU.
  • 00:22:07.280 --> 00:22:09.210
  • TODAY, OUR FRIEND NICKY CRUZ IS
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:12.050
  • AN AMAZING MINISTER.
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:13.120
  • HE GOES AROUND THE WORLD TELLING
  • 00:22:13.120 --> 00:22:15.250
  • BUT WHAT I'M SAYING IS NICKY
  • 00:22:17.260 --> 00:22:19.110
  • COULDN'T CHANGE THAT ON HIS OWN,
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:21.090
  • BEING BORN IN THAT ENVIRONMENT
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:23.100
  • SEEMED UNFAIR.
  • 00:22:23.100 --> 00:22:24.040
  • THE MAN THAT WAS DERANGED,
  • 00:22:24.040 --> 00:22:25.160
  • CUTTING HIMSELF, HE COULDN'T GET
  • 00:22:25.160 --> 00:22:26.280
  • FREE BY HIMSELF.
  • 00:22:26.280 --> 00:22:28.120
  • EVEN PEOPLE COULDN'T HELP HIM,
  • 00:22:28.120 --> 00:22:29.290
  • THAT'S WHY THEY SENT HIM AWAY.
  • 00:22:29.290 --> 00:22:31.270
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU HAVE
  • 00:22:31.270 --> 00:22:34.040
  • SOMEONE FIGHTING FOR YOU.
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:35.200
  • BEHIND THE SCENES GOD'S PUSHING
  • 00:22:35.200 --> 00:22:37.160
  • BACK FORCES OF DARKNESS, MAKING
  • 00:22:37.160 --> 00:22:39.120
  • THINGS HAPPEN THAT YOU COULDN'T
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:41.070
  • MAKE HAPPEN.
  • 00:22:41.070 --> 00:22:41.290
  • AND YOU WILL SEE THE DELIVERANCE
  • 00:22:44.010 --> 00:22:46.100
  • OF THE LORD.
  • 00:22:46.100 --> 00:22:47.170
  • YOU KEEP DOING THE RIGHT THING
  • 00:22:47.170 --> 00:22:49.070
  • AND GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF WHAT'S
  • 00:22:49.070 --> 00:22:51.060
  • STOPPING YOU.
  • 00:22:51.060 --> 00:22:52.130
  • HE'LL TURN THE OPPOSITION
  • 00:22:52.130 --> 00:22:53.240
  • AROUND, HE'LL MOVE THE WRONG
  • 00:22:53.240 --> 00:22:55.170
  • PEOPLE OUT OF THE WAY, HE'LL
  • 00:22:55.170 --> 00:22:57.040
  • GIVE YOU THE BREAKS YOU NEED
  • 00:22:57.040 --> 00:22:58.220
  • TO GET YOU TO WHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:22:58.220 --> 00:23:00.200
  • SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:23:00.200 --> 00:23:01.290
  • WHEN I FIRST STARTED MINISTERING
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:03.130
  • BACK IN 1999, IT SEEMED
  • 00:23:03.130 --> 00:23:05.170
  • LIKE EVERYONE WAS FOR ME.
  • 00:23:05.170 --> 00:23:07.020
  • PEOPLE WERE SO ENCOURAGING,
  • 00:23:07.020 --> 00:23:08.130
  • CHEERING ME ON, MANY OF YOU.
  • 00:23:08.130 --> 00:23:10.140
  • BUT AFTER A COUPLE OF YEARS, I
  • 00:23:10.140 --> 00:23:12.220
  • STARTED HAVING SOME OPPOSITION,
  • 00:23:12.220 --> 00:23:14.020
  • PEOPLE THAT DIDN'T
  • 00:23:14.020 --> 00:23:15.130
  • UNDERSTAND ME.
  • 00:23:15.130 --> 00:23:16.060
  • AND I USED TO THINK WHY ARE THEY
  • 00:23:16.060 --> 00:23:18.080
  • COMING AGAINST ME?
  • 00:23:18.080 --> 00:23:19.020
  • JUST TRYING TO KEEP THE CHURCH
  • 00:23:19.020 --> 00:23:20.250
  • GOING, TALKING
  • 00:23:20.250 --> 00:23:21.140
  • ABOUT THE GOODNESS OF GOD, NOT
  • 00:23:21.140 --> 00:23:23.290
  • BOTHERING ANYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:23:23.290 --> 00:23:25.060
  • I REALIZE NOW THE ENEMY DOESN'T
  • 00:23:25.060 --> 00:23:27.080
  • FIGHT YOU FOR WHERE YOU ARE
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:29.220
  • HE FIGHTS YOU FOR WHERE
  • 00:23:29.220 --> 00:23:31.040
  • I THOUGHT I WOULD ALWAYS BE
  • 00:23:33.030 --> 00:23:34.060
  • AT THE SAME LEVEL.
