  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:09.190 --> 00:00:12.190
  • WELL, GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:00:12.190 --> 00:00:13.170
  • THANKS SO MUCH FOR LETTING US
  • 00:00:13.170 --> 00:00:14.280
  • COME INTO YOUR HOMES.
  • 00:00:14.280 --> 00:00:16.120
  • IF YOU'RE EVER IN OUR AREA
  • 00:00:16.120 --> 00:00:17.240
  • PLEASE STOP BY AND BE A PART OF
  • 00:00:17.240 --> 00:00:19.020
  • ONE OF OUR SERVICES.
  • 00:00:19.020 --> 00:00:20.200
  • I PROMISE YOU WE'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:00:20.200 --> 00:00:21.210
  • FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
  • 00:00:21.210 --> 00:00:23.010
  • BUT THANKS SO MUCH FOR TUNING
  • 00:00:23.010 --> 00:00:23.270
  • IN.
  • 00:00:23.270 --> 00:00:24.210
  • THANK YOU AGAIN FOR COMING OUT.
  • 00:00:24.210 --> 00:00:26.140
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.070
  • FUNNY.
  • 00:00:27.070 --> 00:00:28.180
  • I HEARD ABOUT THIS MAN THAT WAS
  • 00:00:28.180 --> 00:00:29.160
  • VERY STINGY WITH HIS MONEY.
  • 00:00:29.160 --> 00:00:32.050
  • JUST BEFORE HIS DEATH HE MADE
  • 00:00:32.050 --> 00:00:34.010
  • HIS WIFE PROMISE HIM THAT SHE
  • 00:00:34.010 --> 00:00:35.210
  • WOULD HAVE HIM BURIED WITH THE
  • 00:00:35.210 --> 00:00:37.200
  • $50.000 HE HAD SAVED.
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:40.090
  • THE WIFE RELUCTANTLY AGREED.
  • 00:00:40.090 --> 00:00:42.010
  • AT THE FUNERAL, BEFORE THEY
  • 00:00:42.010 --> 00:00:43.110
  • CLOSED THE CASKET, SHE SNUCK IN
  • 00:00:43.110 --> 00:00:45.090
  • THIS SMALL WOODEN BOX.
  • 00:00:45.090 --> 00:00:47.150
  • HER FRIEND SAID, "SURELY YOU
  • 00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:48.280
  • DIDN'T JUST BURY THE MONEY DID
  • 00:00:48.280 --> 00:00:50.040
  • YOU?"
  • 00:00:50.040 --> 00:00:51.190
  • THE WIFE SAID, "OF COURSE I DID.
  • 00:00:51.190 --> 00:00:52.130
  • I'M A CHRISTIAN. I CAN'T LIE."
  • 00:00:52.130 --> 00:00:55.050
  • SHE SAID, "YOU MEAN YOU JUST
  • 00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:56.010
  • BURIED $50.000?"
  • 00:00:56.010 --> 00:00:58.110
  • THE WIFE SAID, "YES, I DID. I
  • 00:00:58.110 --> 00:00:59.030
  • WROTE A CHECK." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:59.150 --> 00:01:02.170
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLE. SAY IT LIKE
  • 00:01:02.170 --> 00:01:03.130
  • YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:01:03.130 --> 00:01:04.220
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:06.120
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:06.120 --> 00:01:07.200
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:07.200 --> 00:01:09.180
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:09.180 --> 00:01:11.210
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:11.210 --> 00:01:12.270
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:14.020
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS:
  • 00:01:14.020 --> 00:01:15.220
  • MY MIND IS ALERT.
  • 00:01:15.220 --> 00:01:17.050
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:17.050 --> 00:01:18.140
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 00:01:18.140 --> 00:01:20.040
  • IN JESUS' NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:20.290 --> 00:01:23.290
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:23.290 --> 00:01:24.260
  • ABOUT JUST DO IT.
  • 00:01:24.260 --> 00:01:27.110
  • SOMETIMES GOD ASKS US TO DO
  • 00:01:27.110 --> 00:01:28.180
  • THINGS THAT DON'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:30.180
  • IT DOESN'T SEEM LOGICAL.
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:32.100
  • IT DOESN'T FIT INTO OUR BUDGET.
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:34.160
  • IT DOESN'T LINE UP WITH OUR
  • 00:01:34.160 --> 00:01:35.150
  • SCHEDULE.
  • 00:01:35.150 --> 00:01:36.270
  • "GOD, YOU WANT ME TO GO BACK TO
  • 00:01:36.270 --> 00:01:37.250
  • COLLEGE? I'M 40 YEARS OLD."
  • 00:01:37.250 --> 00:01:40.150
  • "GOD, YOU WANT ME TO GIVE THEM A
  • 00:01:40.150 --> 00:01:41.230
  • GIFT? I WAS SAVING THOSE FUNDS
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:43.230
  • FOR MY OWN DREAMS."
  • 00:01:43.230 --> 00:01:45.130
  • OR, "GOD, YOU WANT ME TO LEAVE
  • 00:01:45.130 --> 00:01:46.170
  • THIS SECURE POSITION THAT I'VE
  • 00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:48.020
  • HAD FOR YEARS AND START MY OWN
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:49.120
  • BUSINESS?"
  • 00:01:49.120 --> 00:01:51.020
  • TOO OFTEN WE OVERANALYZE IT.
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:53.070
  • WE DEBATE IT. LOOK AT IT ONLY
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:54.290
  • IN THE NATURAL. WE END UP
  • 00:01:54.290 --> 00:01:56.210
  • MAKING EXCUSES, TALKING
  • 00:01:56.210 --> 00:01:58.020
  • OURSELVES OUT OF IT.
  • 00:01:58.020 --> 00:01:59.160
  • "THAT COULDN'T BE GOD."
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:01.020
  • BUT IF YOU'RE GOING TO REACH
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:02.070
  • YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL YOU
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:03.180
  • HAVE TO HAVE BOLD OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:02:03.180 --> 00:02:06.120
  • THAT MEANS YOU OBEY EVEN
  • 00:02:06.120 --> 00:02:08.030
  • WHEN YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:02:08.030 --> 00:02:10.180
  • YOU JUST DO IT EVEN WHEN IT
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:12.010
  • DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:13.280
  • THAT'S WHAT FAITH IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:02:13.280 --> 00:02:15.210
  • IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND
  • 00:02:15.210 --> 00:02:16.260
  • EVERYTHING, YOU HAVE THE TIME,
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:18.250
  • THE MONEY, IT'S ALL LINED UP,
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:20.150
  • THAT DOESN'T REALLY TAKE ANY
  • 00:02:20.150 --> 00:02:21.140
  • FAITH. GOD WILL ASK YOU TO DO
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:23.230
  • THINGS THAT SEEM FAR OUT,
  • 00:02:23.230 --> 00:02:25.260
  • UNUSUAL, NOT PRACTICAL.
  • 00:02:25.260 --> 00:02:28.140
  • WITH EVERY ACT OF OBEDIENCE
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:30.170
  • THERE IS A BLESSING ATTACHED
  • 00:02:30.170 --> 00:02:32.090
  • TO IT. WHEN YOU DO WHAT YOU
  • 00:02:32.090 --> 00:02:34.080
  • KNOW DOWN IN HERE GOD WANTS
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:36.030
  • YOU TO DO, A BLESSING WILL
  • 00:02:36.030 --> 00:02:37.230
  • FOLLOW. GOD REWARDS OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:02:38.110 --> 00:02:41.110
  • ONE TIME JESUS MADE MUD AND PUT
  • 00:02:41.110 --> 00:02:43.070
  • IT ON A BLIND MAN'S EYES. HE
  • 00:02:43.070 --> 00:02:45.020
  • TOLD HIM TO GO WASH IT OFF IN
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:46.290
  • THE POOL OF SILOAM. JESUS COULD
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:49.030
  • HAVE JUST AS EASILY HEALED THE
  • 00:02:49.030 --> 00:02:50.280
  • BLIND MAN ON THE SPOT. HE COULD
  • 00:02:50.280 --> 00:02:53.220
  • HAVE OPENED HIS EYES RIGHT THEN
  • 00:02:53.220 --> 00:02:55.100
  • AND THERE AND SENT HIM ON HIS
  • 00:02:55.100 --> 00:02:56.150
  • WAY.
  • 00:02:56.150 --> 00:02:58.060
  • BUT OBEDIENCE ACTIVATES GOD'S
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:03:00.150
  • POWER. HE PUT THE BALL BACK IN
  • 00:03:00.150 --> 00:03:02.200
  • THE BLIND MAN'S COURT.
  • 00:03:02.200 --> 00:03:04.270
  • HE SAID IN EFFECT, "IF YOU WANT
  • 00:03:04.270 --> 00:03:06.090
  • TO BE HEALED YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:03:06.090 --> 00:03:07.150
  • HAVE TO DO SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:03:07.150 --> 00:03:08.280
  • DOESN'T MAKE SENSE, SOMETHING
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:10.130
  • THAT'S NOT LOGICAL. YOU'RE
  • 00:03:10.130 --> 00:03:12.070
  • GOING TO HAVE TO SHOW THAT YOU
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:13.250
  • TRUST ME AND GO WASH THIS OFF
  • 00:03:13.250 --> 00:03:15.130
  • IN THE POOL."
  • 00:03:15.130 --> 00:03:17.240
  • THE BLIND MAN COULD HAVE WIPED
  • 00:03:17.240 --> 00:03:18.290
  • THE MUD OFF WITH HIS OWN HANDS
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:21.000
  • AND THOUGHT, "I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:03:21.000 --> 00:03:21.280
  • DO THAT. THAT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:03:21.280 --> 00:03:22.280
  • SENSE. THAT'S GOING TO BE A
  • 00:03:22.280 --> 00:03:24.070
  • WASTE OF TIME."
  • 00:03:24.070 --> 00:03:25.120
  • HE COULD HAVE THOUGHT, "I'M
  • 00:03:25.120 --> 00:03:26.120
  • BLIND. I HAVE THESE DISADVAN-
  • 00:03:26.120 --> 00:03:27.270
  • TAGES. I CAN'T MAKE IT DOWN
  • 00:03:27.270 --> 00:03:29.050
  • TO THE POOL."
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:31.000
  • BUT INSTEAD OF MAKING EXCUSES,
  • 00:03:31.000 --> 00:03:33.050
  • INSTEAD OF TALKING HIMSELF OUT
  • 00:03:33.050 --> 00:03:34.150
  • OF IT, HE DECIDED TO JUST DO IT.
  • 00:03:34.150 --> 00:03:37.010
  • HE WENT TO THE POOL, WASHED IT
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:38.230
  • OFF. IMMEDIATELY HE COULD SEE.
  • 00:03:38.230 --> 00:03:41.060
  • BUT HERE'S THE KEY. THE HEALING
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:42.210
  • WASN'T IN THE WATER. THE
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:44.220
  • HEALING WAS IN THE OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:47.180
  • WHEN YOU OBEY, DREAMS COME TO
  • 00:03:47.180 --> 00:03:49.040
  • PASS. WHEN YOU OBEY, HEALTH IS
  • 00:03:49.040 --> 00:03:51.150
  • RESTORED. WHEN YOU OBEY,
  • 00:03:51.150 --> 00:03:53.190
  • PROBLEMS TURN AROUND.
  • 00:03:53.190 --> 00:03:55.090
  • I WONDER HOW MANY MIRACLES
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:56.230
  • WE WOULD SEE IF WE WOULD SIMPLY
  • 00:03:56.230 --> 00:03:58.140
  • DO WHAT WE KNOW WE'RE SUPPOSED
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:00.080
  • TO DO.
  • 00:04:00.080 --> 00:04:01.190
  • ARE YOU TALKING YOURSELF OUT OF
  • 00:04:01.190 --> 00:04:03.010
  • SOMETHING BECAUSE IT'S NOT
  • 00:04:03.010 --> 00:04:04.050
  • PRACTICAL, IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:04:04.050 --> 00:04:05.130
  • SENSE?
  • 00:04:05.130 --> 00:04:06.280
  • "I KNOW I SHOULD VOLUNTEER BUT
  • 00:04:06.280 --> 00:04:08.000
  • I'M TOO BUSY."
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:09.110
  • "I KNOW I SHOULDN'T HANG AROUND
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:10.190
  • THESE FRIENDS BUT I DON'T WANT
  • 00:04:10.190 --> 00:04:11.240
  • TO BE LONELY."
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:13.180
  • "I KNOW I SHOULD GET OUT OF THIS
  • 00:04:13.180 --> 00:04:14.150
  • JOB WHERE I'M NOT GOING ANYPLACE
  • 00:04:14.150 --> 00:04:15.210
  • BUT AT LEAST I'M COMFORTABLE."
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:18.190
  • NO, QUIT PUTTING IT OFF AND JUST
  • 00:04:18.190 --> 00:04:20.020
  • DO IT. IF YOU'LL HAVE BOLD
  • 00:04:20.020 --> 00:04:22.020
  • OBEDIENCE YOU'LL SEE GOD'S
  • 00:04:22.020 --> 00:04:23.260
  • FAVOR IN A NEW WAY.
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:26.150
  • WHEN JOSHUA AND THE ISRAELITES
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:27.250
  • NEEDED TO GET ACROSS THE JORDAN
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:29.210
  • RIVER, GOD SAID HE WOULD OPEN IT
  • 00:04:29.210 --> 00:04:32.150
  • UP, BUT THEY HAD TO GET THEIR
  • 00:04:32.150 --> 00:04:34.000
  • FEET WET BEFORE THE WATERS
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:35.170
  • PARTED. THEY COULD HAVE SAT
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:37.030
  • BACK AND THOUGHT, "AS SOON AS
  • 00:04:37.030 --> 00:04:38.120
  • GOD OPENS IT, THEN WE'LL WALK
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:40.290
  • TOWARD IT. IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:42.250
  • SENSE TO GO NOW. THE RIVER IS
  • 00:04:42.250 --> 00:04:44.170
  • STILL FLOWING. EVERYTHING IS
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:46.000
  • NORMAL. NOTHING IS UNUSUAL."
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:48.080
  • NO, THEY TOOK A STEP OF FAITH
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.090
  • AND STARTED WALKING TOWARD THE
  • 00:04:50.090 --> 00:04:51.200
  • WATER. I CAN IMAGINE WHEN WATER
  • 00:04:51.200 --> 00:04:54.000
  • GOT UP TO THEIR ANKLES THEY
  • 00:04:54.000 --> 00:04:55.290
  • THOUGHT, "WHAT ARE WE DOING
  • 00:04:55.290 --> 00:04:57.120
  • WALKING INTO A RIVER? WE COULD
  • 00:04:57.120 --> 00:04:58.270
  • DROWN."
  • 00:04:58.270 --> 00:05:00.160
  • WATER GOT UP TO THEIR KNEES AND
  • 00:05:00.160 --> 00:05:01.270
  • THOUGHTS SAID, "YOU'D BETTER
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:03.090
  • TURN AROUND. YOU'RE MAKING A
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.110
  • MISTAKE."
  • 00:05:04.110 --> 00:05:05.070
  • WATER UP TO THEIR WAIST. THEY
  • 00:05:05.070 --> 00:05:06.090
  • JUST KEPT WALKING.
  • 00:05:06.090 --> 00:05:07.290
  • WHAT IS THAT? BOLD OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:05:07.290 --> 00:05:10.120
  • ABOUT THAT TIME THE RIVER
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:11.260
  • SUPERNATURALLY PARTED. THEY
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:13.250
  • WALKED IN TO THEIR PROMISED
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:14.280
  • LAND.
  • 00:05:14.280 --> 00:05:16.010
  • IN THE SAME WAY, IF YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:05:16.010 --> 00:05:17.180
  • TO MAKE IT TO YOUR PROMISED LAND
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:19.110
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE THIS BOLD
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:21.110
  • OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:05:21.110 --> 00:05:23.130
  • YOU'RE NOT ALWAYS GOING TO
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:24.200
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD IS DOING.
  • 00:05:24.200 --> 00:05:27.040
  • GOD IS NOT ALWAYS LOGICAL.
  • 00:05:27.040 --> 00:05:28.200
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "HIS WAYS
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:30.080
  • ARE NOT OUR WAYS."
  • 00:05:30.080 --> 00:05:32.290
  • TAKE THIS IN THE RIGHT SENSE.
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:34.170
  • SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO TURN YOUR
  • 00:05:34.170 --> 00:05:36.090
  • MIND OFF. IF YOU OVERANALYZE
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:38.160
  • IT, LOOK AT IT ONLY IN THE
  • 00:05:38.160 --> 00:05:40.140
  • NATURAL, YOU'LL NEVER GET OFF
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:42.080
  • OF DEAD CENTER. FAITH IS NOT IN
  • 00:05:42.080 --> 00:05:44.180
  • YOUR HEAD. FAITH IS IN YOUR
  • 00:05:44.180 --> 00:05:46.240
  • HEART. DOWN IN HERE YOU'LL KNOW
  • 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:48.240
  • THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
  • 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:50.240
  • UP HERE, YOU'LL HAVE A THOUSAND
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:52.010
  • EXCUSES, A THOUSAND REASONS
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:05:54.000
  • WHY IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK OUT.
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:55.110
  • YOU'VE GOT TO TURN YOUR MIND OFF
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:57.000
  • AND LISTEN TO YOUR HEART.
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:59.120
  • THAT'S WHAT I DID IN 1999. WHEN
  • 00:05:59.120 --> 00:06:01.120
  • MY DAD DIED I KNEW I WAS
  • 00:06:01.120 --> 00:06:03.110
  • SUPPOSED TO STEP UP AND
  • 00:06:03.110 --> 00:06:04.260
  • PASTOR THE CHURCH. I FELT IT SO
  • 00:06:04.260 --> 00:06:06.210
  • STRONGLY DOWN IN HERE. BUT IN
  • 00:06:06.210 --> 00:06:08.290
  • MY MIND IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:06:08.290 --> 00:06:11.220
  • I HAD NEVER MINISTERED BEFORE,
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:13.120
  • NEVER BEEN TO SEMINARY.
  • 00:06:13.120 --> 00:06:15.130
  • I SAID, "GOD, THIS DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:17.020
  • SENSE TO ME BUT I'M GOING TO
  • 00:06:17.020 --> 00:06:18.160
  • TAKE A STEP OF FAITH, BELIEVING
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:20.210
  • THAT YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR
  • 00:06:20.210 --> 00:06:22.040
  • MY LIFE."
  • 00:06:22.040 --> 00:06:23.250
  • AS I STEPPED INTO THE WATER, AS
  • 00:06:23.250 --> 00:06:25.270
  • I GOT MY FEET WET, SO TO SPEAK,
  • 00:06:25.270 --> 00:06:28.130
  • THAT'S WHEN THE WATERS PARTED.
  • 00:06:28.130 --> 00:06:30.240
  • GOD HAS TAKEN ME PLACES I'VE
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:31.180
  • NEVER DREAMED OF.
  • 00:06:31.180 --> 00:06:33.020
  • BUT SOME OF YOU ARE WAITING FOR
  • 00:06:33.020 --> 00:06:34.100
  • THE WATERS TO PART, THEN YOU'RE
  • 00:06:34.100 --> 00:06:36.060
  • GOING TO TAKE A STEP OF FAITH.
  • 00:06:36.080 --> 00:06:39.080
  • BUT YOUR OBEDIENCE IS WHAT
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:40.100
  • CAUSES THE WATER TO PART.
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:42.180
  • YOU'RE WAITING ON GOD BUT GOD IS
  • 00:06:42.180 --> 00:06:43.270
  • WAITING ON YOU. IF YOU'LL DO
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:45.250
  • WHAT YOU KNOW GOD IS ASKING
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:47.160
  • YOU TO DO YOUR OBEDIENCE
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:49.100
  • WILL ACTIVATE THE FAVOR, THE
  • 00:06:49.100 --> 00:06:51.040
  • INCREASE, THE BLESSING. MUCH OF
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:52.290
  • WHAT HAPPENS ALONG THE WAY ARE
  • 00:06:52.290 --> 00:06:55.180
  • SIMPLY TESTS. GOD IS SEEING,
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:57.200
  • "DO YOU TRUST ME? WILL YOU OBEY
  • 00:06:57.200 --> 00:06:59.210
  • EVEN WHEN YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:01.260
  • IT? WILL YOU TAKE A STEP OF
  • 00:07:01.260 --> 00:07:03.060
  • FAITH EVEN WHEN IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:07:03.060 --> 00:07:05.130
  • SENSE?"
  • 00:07:05.130 --> 00:07:07.030
  • BACK IN THE 1960'S, LAKEWOOD WAS
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:08.290
  • STILL IN ITS ORIGINAL BUILDING;
  • 00:07:08.290 --> 00:07:11.120
  • A FEED STORE THAT HELD 200
  • 00:07:11.120 --> 00:07:12.250
  • PEOPLE. THE CHURCH WAS REALLY
  • 00:07:12.250 --> 00:07:14.210
  • GROWING. THEY NEEDED A LARGER
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:16.000
  • AUDITORIUM.
  • 00:07:16.000 --> 00:07:18.040
  • MY FATHER TOLD THE CONGREGATION
  • 00:07:18.040 --> 00:07:19.220
  • THAT ON A PARTICULAR SUNDAY HE
  • 00:07:19.220 --> 00:07:21.210
  • WAS GOING TO RECEIVE A SPECIAL
  • 00:07:21.210 --> 00:07:23.060
  • OFFERING FOR A NEW BUILDING.
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:25.260
  • HE ASKED THEM TO SEE WHAT GOD
  • 00:07:25.260 --> 00:07:27.040
  • WOULD HAVE THEM TO GIVE AND
  • 00:07:27.040 --> 00:07:28.080
  • REALLY PRAY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:29.140
  • HE ENCOURAGED THEM TO STRETCH
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:30.180
  • THEIR FAITH, TO BELIEVE BIG AND
  • 00:07:30.180 --> 00:07:32.100
  • TO DO THEIR VERY BEST.
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:34.100
  • HE RECEIVED THE OFFERING AND IT
  • 00:07:34.100 --> 00:07:35.210
  • WAS A LITTLE OVER $6.000.
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:38.240
  • TO THEM BACK THEN THAT WAS
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:40.140
  • LIKE $600.000.
  • 00:07:40.140 --> 00:07:43.110
  • DADDY WAS SO EXCITED. THAT WAS
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:45.020
  • ENOUGH TO POUR THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:47.110
  • AND GET THE BUILDING STARTED.
  • 00:07:47.110 --> 00:07:49.130
  • BUT ONE DAY DRIVING HOME FROM
  • 00:07:49.130 --> 00:07:51.000
  • CHURCH MY FATHER PASSED A SMALL
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:53.000
  • SPANISH CHURCH ABOUT SIX BLOCKS
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:55.240
  • FROM LAKEWOOD. THIS SPANISH
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:58.050
  • CHURCH HAD BEEN BUILDING ON A
  • 00:07:58.050 --> 00:07:59.270
  • LITTLE AUDITORIUM FOR YEARS.
  • 00:07:59.270 --> 00:08:02.250
  • THEY WOULD BUILD AND TAKE TIME
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:03.260
  • OFF, BUILD SOME MORE, ON AND ON.
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:06.080
  • AS MY FATHER PASSED HE HEARD A
  • 00:08:06.080 --> 00:08:08.120
  • VOICE DOWN IN HERE SAY, "I WANT
  • 00:08:08.120 --> 00:08:10.030
  • YOU TO GIVE THAT SPECIAL
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:12.090
  • OFFERING TO THIS SPANISH CHURCH
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:14.200
  • SO THEY CAN FINISH THEIR
  • 00:08:14.200 --> 00:08:16.190
  • BUILDING."
  • 00:08:16.190 --> 00:08:17.140
  • DADDY'S FIRST THOUGHT WAS, "GET
  • 00:08:17.140 --> 00:08:18.120
  • BEHIND ME, SATAN." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:18.120 --> 00:08:20.290
  • "THAT COULD NOT BE GOD."
  • 00:08:20.290 --> 00:08:22.220
  • HE BEGAN TO REASON IT OUT.
  • 00:08:22.220 --> 00:08:24.090
  • "GOD, YOU MEAN YOU WANT ME TO
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:26.190
  • GIVE THE MONEY I JUST RAISED,
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:29.130
  • THE MONEY WE NEED, THE MONEY
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.080
  • WE'VE BEEN DREAMING ABOUT,
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:33.040
  • MONEY WE'VE BEEN PRAYING FOR.
  • 00:08:33.040 --> 00:08:34.230
  • YOU WANT ME TO GIVE THAT TO A
  • 00:08:34.230 --> 00:08:36.050
  • CHURCH DOWN THE STREET?"
  • 00:08:36.050 --> 00:08:38.010
  • IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE. IT DIDN'T
  • 00:08:38.010 --> 00:08:39.050
  • SEEM LOGICAL. HE NEEDED THE
  • 00:08:39.050 --> 00:08:40.180
  • FUNDS YET GOD SAID, "SOW IT AS
  • 00:08:40.180 --> 00:08:42.130
  • A SEED."
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:44.200
  • MY FATHER HAD THIS BOLD
  • 00:08:44.200 --> 00:08:46.030
  • OBEDIENCE. HE SAID, "ALRIGHT,
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:47.090
  • GOD." HE WROTE THEM A CHECK.
  • 00:08:47.090 --> 00:08:48.290
  • THEY NEARLY PASSED OUT.
  • 00:08:48.290 --> 00:08:50.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:51.120
  • OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS PEOPLE
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:52.200
  • BEGAN TO COME FROM NOWHERE
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:54.180
  • GIVING MONEY TO THE LAKEWOOD NEW
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.130
  • SANCTUARY. THEY NOT ONLY HAD
  • 00:08:56.130 --> 00:08:58.050
  • ENOUGH FOR THE FOUNDATION BUT
  • 00:08:58.050 --> 00:09:00.160
  • ENOUGH FOR THE WHOLE BUILDING.
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:02.240
  • A YEAR LATER THEY MOVED INTO A
  • 00:09:02.240 --> 00:09:04.050
  • 1.000 SEAT SANCTUARY TOTALLY
  • 00:09:04.050 --> 00:09:05.280
  • DEBT FREE. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:05.280 --> 00:09:07.230
  • YOU CAN'T OUT-GIVE GOD. WHEN
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:09.210
  • GOD ASKS YOU TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:11.270

  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.250
  • YOURSELF OUT OF IT NOT ONLY IS
  • 00:09:13.250 --> 00:09:16.010
  • THE OTHER PERSON NOT BEING

  • BLESSED BUT YOU'RE MISSING THE

  • BLESSING GOD HAS FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:22.000
  • HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I TALKED

  • MYSELF OUT OF DOING WHAT I KNEW
  • 00:09:23.210 --> 00:09:25.180
  • GOD WANTED ME TO DO?
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:27.180

  • FRIEND AND ENCOURAGE THEM.
  • 00:09:28.200 --> 00:09:30.170

  • THAT FAMILY WITH THEIR RENT.
  • 00:09:31.270 --> 00:09:33.270
  • BUT I GOT BUSY. I THOUGHT,

  • "GOD, THEY LOOK LIKE THEY'RE
  • 00:09:35.080 --> 00:09:36.130
  • DOING OKAY. THEY'VE GOT AS MUCH
  • 00:09:36.130 --> 00:09:37.110
  • AS I DO. MAYBE NEXT TIME."
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:39.130
  • I WONDER WHAT I MISSED OUT ON.
  • 00:09:39.130 --> 00:09:42.100

  • PIECE OF PROPERTY FOR OVER
  • 00:10:35.230 --> 00:10:37.050

  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:25.280
  • WAS WILLING TO GIVE IT AWAY.
  • 00:11:25.280 --> 00:11:28.000
  • I REALIZE I AM REAPING A HARVEST
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:31.000
  • FROM SEEDS THAT WERE SOWN MANY
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:32.140
  • YEARS AGO. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:11:32.140 --> 00:11:34.240
  • WHEN YOU HAVE BOLD OBEDIENCE
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:36.120
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE GOD IS
  • 00:11:36.120 --> 00:11:38.130
  • GOING TO TAKE YOU. YOU DON'T
  • 00:11:38.130 --> 00:11:40.150
  • ARGUE WITH GOD, YOU DON'T
  • 00:11:40.150 --> 00:11:41.280
  • REASON IT OUT, YOU DON'T MAKE
  • 00:11:41.280 --> 00:11:43.100
  • EXCUSES, YOU JUST DO IT.
  • 00:11:43.100 --> 00:11:46.050
  • YOU CAN'T IMAGINE THE DOORS GOD
  • 00:11:46.050 --> 00:11:47.140
  • IS GOING TO OPEN, NOT ONLY FOR
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:49.030
  • YOU BUT FOR YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:51.260
  • I'M SURE MY FATHER IS LOOKING
  • 00:11:51.260 --> 00:11:53.000
  • DOWN FROM HEAVEN RIGHT NOW
  • 00:11:53.000 --> 00:11:54.210
  • THINKING, "I NEVER DREAMED
  • 00:11:54.210 --> 00:11:55.200
  • LAKEWOOD WOULD BE WHERE IT IS
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:57.010
  • TODAY."
  • 00:11:57.010 --> 00:11:58.240
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:12:00.130
  • HAVE BOLD OBEDIENCE. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:02.210
  • WE CAN ALL OBEY WHEN IT'S EASY,
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:04.150
  • WHEN IT MAKES SENSE, WHEN IT'S
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:05.250
  • LOGICAL, WHEN IT DOESN'T TAKE
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:07.250
  • ANY EXTRA EFFORT.
  • 00:12:07.250 --> 00:12:10.020
  • "YEAH, JOEL. I'LL GO TO CHURCH.
  • 00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:11.100
  • I'LL TITHE MY INCOME. I'LL BE
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:13.010
  • KIND TO PEOPLE. I'LL HAVE A
  • 00:12:13.010 --> 00:12:14.020
  • GOOD ATTITUDE."
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:15.020
  • THAT DOESN'T REALLY TAKE MUCH
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:16.140
  • FAITH. BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN IT'S
  • 00:12:16.140 --> 00:12:18.150
  • OUT OF THE ORDINARY AND GOD
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:20.080
  • ASKS YOU TO NOT ONLY GO TO
  • 00:12:20.080 --> 00:12:22.010
  • CHURCH BUT SWING BY AND PICK UP
  • 00:12:22.010 --> 00:12:24.000
  • THAT COUPLE THAT'S STRUGGLING
  • 00:12:24.000 --> 00:12:26.130
  • AND BRING THEM TO CHURCH WITH
  • 00:12:26.130 --> 00:12:27.190
  • YOU EACH WEEK?
  • 00:12:27.190 --> 00:12:29.040
  • "GOD, WAIT A MINUTE. I'VE GOT A
  • 00:12:29.040 --> 00:12:30.210
  • FULLTIME JOB. I'M RAISING THESE
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:32.100
  • CHILDREN. I'M VERY BUSY. GOD,
  • 00:12:32.100 --> 00:12:34.250
  • THEY LIVE 20 MINUTES OUT OF
  • 00:12:34.250 --> 00:12:36.000
  • THE WAY. I'M GOING TO HAVE TO
  • 00:12:36.000 --> 00:12:37.180
  • GET UP EARLIER. THAT'S GOING TO
  • 00:12:37.180 --> 00:12:38.240
  • TAKE EXTRA GAS MONEY. GOD, THEY
  • 00:12:38.240 --> 00:12:40.150
  • MAY WANT TO COME EAT LUNCH WITH
  • 00:12:40.150 --> 00:12:42.000
  • ME AFTERWARDS."
  • 00:12:42.000 --> 00:12:43.270
  • "GOD, I'LL PICK THEM UP BUT I AM
  • 00:12:43.270 --> 00:12:44.180
  • NOT BUYING THEIR LUNCH."
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:46.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:47.220
  • NO, WHEN GOD ASKS YOU TO DO
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:48.250
  • SOMETHING THAT TAKES SACRIFICE,
  • 00:12:48.250 --> 00:12:50.270
  • SOMETHING THAT'S OUT OF THE
  • 00:12:50.270 --> 00:12:52.030
  • ORDINARY, IT'S BECAUSE GOD WANTS
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:53.220
  • TO RELEASE BLESSINGS IN YOUR
  • 00:12:53.220 --> 00:12:55.260
  • LIFE THAT ARE OUT OF THE
  • 00:12:55.260 --> 00:12:57.070
  • ORDINARY.
  • 00:12:57.070 --> 00:12:59.000
  • WHEN YOU RADICALLY OBEY YOU WILL
  • 00:12:59.000 --> 00:13:00.290
  • BE RADICALLY BLESSED.
  • 00:13:00.290 --> 00:13:03.170
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THIS BUILDING IS?
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:04.220
  • IT'S A RADICAL BLESSING. IT'S
  • 00:13:04.220 --> 00:13:06.070
  • BECAUSE MY PARENTS AND THAT
  • 00:13:06.070 --> 00:13:07.240
  • FIRST GROUP OF LAKEWOOD MEMBERS
  • 00:13:07.240 --> 00:13:09.140
  • SOWED A RADICAL SEED.
  • 00:13:09.140 --> 00:13:11.140
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO ISAAC.
  • 00:13:11.140 --> 00:13:13.120
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE, THERE WAS A
  • 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:14.120
  • GREAT FAMINE IN THE LAND. THERE
  • 00:13:14.120 --> 00:13:16.030
  • HAD BEEN A DROUGHT FOR MANY
  • 00:13:16.030 --> 00:13:17.070
  • YEARS, HARDLY ANY FOOD, NO
  • 00:13:17.070 --> 00:13:19.070
  • WATER. PEOPLE WERE STRUGGLING
  • 00:13:19.070 --> 00:13:21.140
  • TO SURVIVE. GOD TOLD ISAAC TO
  • 00:13:21.140 --> 00:13:23.200
  • TAKE A STEP OF FAITH AND PLANT
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:25.160
  • HIS CROPS. THAT DIDN'T MAKE
  • 00:13:25.160 --> 00:13:28.040
  • SENSE. THERE WAS NO WAY TO
  • 00:13:28.040 --> 00:13:29.250
  • WATER THE CROPS. IT LOOKED LIKE
  • 00:13:29.250 --> 00:13:31.250
  • IT WOULD BE A WASTE OF TIME.
  • 00:13:31.250 --> 00:13:33.220
  • ISAAC COULD HAVE SAID, "GOD,
  • 00:13:33.220 --> 00:13:35.000
  • HAVE YOU SEEN THE CONDITIONS
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:37.080
  • LATELY? HAVE YOU CHECKED THE
  • 00:13:37.080 --> 00:13:38.200
  • WEATHER REPORT? DO YOU REALIZE
  • 00:13:38.200 --> 00:13:40.230
  • IT HASN'T RAINED IN YEARS?
  • 00:13:40.230 --> 00:13:43.090
  • NOTHING IS GOING TO GROW."
  • 00:13:43.090 --> 00:13:44.260
  • HE COULD HAVE LOOKED AT IT JUST
  • 00:13:44.260 --> 00:13:46.020
  • IN THE NATURAL LOGICAL WAY AND
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:48.010
  • TALKED HIMSELF OUT OF IT BUT
  • 00:13:48.010 --> 00:13:49.240
  • ISAAC HAD THIS BOLD OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:13:49.240 --> 00:13:52.150
  • IT SAYS IN GENESIS 26, "IN THE
  • 00:13:52.150 --> 00:13:54.060
  • MIDST OF THE FAMINE HE SOWED A
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:56.030
  • SEED IN THE LAND."
  • 00:13:56.050 --> 00:13:59.050
  • I CAN IMAGINE HIS FRIENDS
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:00.240
  • SAYING, "ISAAC, WHAT IN THE
  • 00:14:00.240 --> 00:14:02.000
  • WORLD ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:03.190
  • REALIZE NOTHING IS GOING TO
  • 00:14:03.190 --> 00:14:06.010
  • GROW IN A DROUGHT?"
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:07.150
  • HE DIDN'T TALK HIMSELF OUT OF
  • 00:14:07.150 --> 00:14:08.130
  • IT. DIDN'T GET DISCOURAGED. HE
  • 00:14:08.130 --> 00:14:09.180
  • JUST KEPT PLANTING. WHAT WAS HE
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:11.160
  • DOING? SOWING A RADICAL SEED.
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:14.110
  • WHAT HAPPENED? HE REAPED A
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:15.210
  • RADICAL HARVEST. THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:14:15.210 --> 00:14:17.190
  • SAYS, "IN THE SAME YEAR, IN THE
  • 00:14:17.190 --> 00:14:20.000
  • FAMINE, HE RECEIVED A 100 FOLD
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:23.150
  • RETURN."
  • 00:14:23.150 --> 00:14:25.080
  • HE COULD HAVE HELD ONTO THOSE
  • 00:14:25.080 --> 00:14:26.100
  • SEEDS FOR YEARS WAITING FOR THE
  • 00:14:26.100 --> 00:14:28.070
  • CONDITIONS TO BE PERFECT.
  • 00:14:28.070 --> 00:14:30.110
  • NOTHING WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:32.000
  • ISAAC UNDERSTOOD THIS PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:34.020
  • THE POWER WAS NOT IN THE SEED.
  • 00:14:34.020 --> 00:14:36.110
  • THE POWER IS IN THE OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:39.090
  • THAT'S WHEN MIRACLES HAPPEN.
  • 00:14:39.090 --> 00:14:41.030
  • THE CONDITIONS DON'T HAVE TO BE
  • 00:14:41.030 --> 00:14:42.140
  • PERFECT. THE ECONOMY DOESN'T
  • 00:14:42.140 --> 00:14:44.060
  • HAVE TO BE BOOMING FOR YOU TO
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:46.020
  • BE BLESSED. YOU DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:14:46.020 --> 00:14:47.200
  • HAVE THE MOST EDUCATION, THE
  • 00:14:47.200 --> 00:14:49.030
  • MOST TALENT, LIVE IN A CERTAIN
  • 00:14:49.030 --> 00:14:50.120
  • NEIGHBORHOOD. ALL THE ODDS CAN
  • 00:14:50.120 --> 00:14:52.110
  • BE AGAINST YOU BUT WHEN GOD
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:54.140
  • ASKS YOU TO DO SOMETHING AND
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:56.080
  • YOU DON'T ARGUE, YOU DON'T MAKE
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:14:58.010
  • EXCUSES, YOU JUST DO IT.
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:15:01.190
  • LIKE ISAAC, "GOD, I DON'T
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:02.200
  • UNDERSTAND IT BUT I'M GOING TO
  • 00:15:02.200 --> 00:15:03.230
  • SOW A SEED ANYWAY."
  • 00:15:03.230 --> 00:15:06.030
  • LIKE MY FATHER, "GOD, WE NEED
  • 00:15:06.030 --> 00:15:07.200
  • THE MONEY BUT I'M GOING TO BLESS
  • 00:15:07.200 --> 00:15:08.290
  • THAT SPANISH CHURCH ANYWAY."
  • 00:15:08.290 --> 00:15:11.260
  • LIKE I DID, "GOD, I DON'T FEEL
  • 00:15:11.260 --> 00:15:12.230
  • QUALIFIED BUT I'M GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:15:12.230 --> 00:15:13.220
  • A STEP OF FAITH."
  • 00:15:13.220 --> 00:15:15.220
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU'LL SEE A HARVEST
  • 00:15:15.220 --> 00:15:17.190
  • IN THE MIDST OF THE FAMINE.
  • 00:15:17.190 --> 00:15:19.160
  • YOU'LL BE BLESSED EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:15:19.160 --> 00:15:21.010
  • OTHERS ARE STRUGGLING.
  • 00:15:21.010 --> 00:15:22.280
  • YOU'LL BE PROMOTED EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:23.260
  • YOU WEREN'T THE MOST QUALIFIED.
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:25.160
  • YOU'LL SEE DREAMS COME TO PASS
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:27.060
  • EVEN THOUGH THE ODDS WERE
  • 00:15:27.060 --> 00:15:28.160
  • AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:30.060
  • FRIENDS, GOD IS LOOKING FOR
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:31.110
  • PEOPLE WHO WILL HAVE THIS BOLD
  • 00:15:31.110 --> 00:15:32.270
  • OBEDIENCE. IF GOD HAS TO TALK
  • 00:15:32.270 --> 00:15:35.180
  • YOU INTO IT, SEND YOU SEVEN
  • 00:15:35.180 --> 00:15:37.230
  • SIGNS BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:39.060
  • BELIEVE. (LAUGHTER)

  • LIGHTNING STRIKE ACROSS THE SKY
  • 00:15:41.290 --> 00:15:43.210
  • AND SPELL MY NAME OUT IN SMOKE,

  • MOSES SHOW UP AT MY FRONT DOOR
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:50.000
  • TONIGHT."
  • 00:15:50.000 --> 00:15:50.280
  • OR, "GOD, IF A SEE A CAMEL
  • 00:15:50.280 --> 00:15:51.230
  • WALKING DOWN THE FREEWAY THIS
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:52.220
  • WEEK THEN I'LL BELIEVE."
  • 00:15:52.220 --> 00:15:54.100
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:54.100 --> 00:15:55.010
  • NO, MAKE A DECISION TO JUST
  • 00:15:55.010 --> 00:15:55.270
  • DO IT.
  • 00:15:55.270 --> 00:15:57.270
  • "WELL, JOEL. WHAT IF IT'S NOT
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:15:58.240
  • RIGHT? WHAT IF I MISS GOD?"
  • 00:15:58.240 --> 00:16:01.160
  • LIKE JOYCE MEYER SAYS, "THEN GOD
  • 00:16:01.160 --> 00:16:03.010
  • WILL FIND YOU." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:03.010 --> 00:16:05.190
  • BUT GOD WOULD RATHER YOU TAKE
  • 00:16:05.190 --> 00:16:06.260
  • STEPS OF FAITH AND MISS IT EVERY
  • 00:16:06.260 --> 00:16:08.180
  • ONCE IN A WHILE THAN TO PLAY IT
  • 00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:10.000
  • SAFE YOUR WHOLE LIFE AND NEVER
  • 00:16:10.000 --> 00:16:11.040
  • GET OFF DEAD CENTER. THE ONLY
  • 00:16:11.040 --> 00:16:12.170
  • WAY YOU'RE EVER GOING TO REALLY
  • 00:16:12.170 --> 00:16:14.010
  • KNOW IS BY TAKING A STEP OF
  • 00:16:14.010 --> 00:16:15.220
  • FAITH.
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:17.110
  • A COUPLE OF YEARS AFTER
  • 00:16:17.110 --> 00:16:18.130
  • VICTORIA AND I WERE MARRIED WE
  • 00:16:18.130 --> 00:16:19.250
  • SOLD OUR TOWNHOME. WE FOUND
  • 00:16:19.250 --> 00:16:21.230
  • THIS HOUSE THAT WE REALLY
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:23.040
  • WANTED TO BUY. WE MADE A GREAT
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:24.220
  • OFFER. WE PRAYED OVER IT. WE
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:26.290
  • BELIEVED FOR IT.
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.140
  • BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY SOLD
  • 00:16:28.140 --> 00:16:29.270
  • THE PROPERTY TO SOMEONE ELSE.
  • 00:16:29.270 --> 00:16:32.150
  • FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:33.210
  • WE KEPT LOOKING AND LOOKING.
  • 00:16:33.210 --> 00:16:36.060
  • ONE DAY WE FOUND THIS OLD

  • LARGE PIECE OF PROPERTY IN A
  • 00:16:39.050 --> 00:16:40.250
  • NICE NEIGHBORHOOD. THE HOUSE
  • 00:16:40.250 --> 00:16:42.260
  • HAD BEEN ABANDONED. DOORS WERE
  • 00:16:42.260 --> 00:16:44.210
  • MISSING. IN THE KITCHEN FOR
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:46.120
  • SOME REASON THEY HAD A
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:47.210
  • SCARECROW. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:47.210 --> 00:16:50.170
  • THERE WAS A BIG GARBAGE CAN.
  • 00:16:50.170 --> 00:16:52.000
  • WATER WAS DRIPPING FROM THE
  • 00:16:52.000 --> 00:16:53.250
  • CEILING. IT HAD MAJOR
  • 00:16:53.250 --> 00:16:54.160
  • FOUNDATION PROBLEMS.
  • 00:16:54.160 --> 00:16:55.250
  • THE FLOORS WERE ALL BOWED.
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:57.220
  • NOTHING ABOUT THE HOUSE WAS
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:16:59.080
  • NICE. THE LOT WAS VERY
  • 00:16:59.080 --> 00:17:01.000
  • BEAUTIFUL BUT THE HOUSE IN THE
  • 00:17:01.000 --> 00:17:02.150
  • CURRENT CONDITION WASN'T
  • 00:17:02.150 --> 00:17:03.250
  • LIVABLE.
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:05.060
  • I WASN'T THERE TEN MINUTES WHEN
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:07.000
  • I HEARD SOMETHING DOWN IN HERE
  • 00:17:07.000 --> 00:17:08.110
  • SAYING, "JOEL, THIS IS IT."
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:11.140
  • I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, "I DON'T
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:12.280
  • KNOW WHO YOU ARE BUT THIS IS NOT
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:14.080
  • IT." "THIS IS A PIECE OF JUNK."
  • 00:17:14.080 --> 00:17:16.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:18.230
  • I COULDN'T GET AWAY FROM IT.
  • 00:17:18.230 --> 00:17:20.010
  • THAT FEELING WOULD NOT LEAVE.
  • 00:17:20.010 --> 00:17:22.080
  • HERE WE HAD JUST MOVED OUT OF
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:23.110
  • A BEAUTIFUL TOWNHOME. I SAID,
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:25.000
  • "GOD, WE WANT TO MOVE UP AND
  • 00:17:25.000 --> 00:17:26.110
  • NOT DOWN. THIS IS THE WRONG
  • 00:17:26.110 --> 00:17:27.250
  • DIRECTION." THAT STILL SMALL
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:29.260
  • VOICE KEPT SAYING, "JOEL, TRUST
  • 00:17:29.260 --> 00:17:31.110
  • ME. I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING."
  • 00:17:31.110 --> 00:17:33.120
  • ABOUT THAT TIME VICTORIA CAME UP
  • 00:17:33.120 --> 00:17:35.000
  • WITH A BIG SMILE. SHE SAID,
  • 00:17:35.000 --> 00:17:36.240
  • "JOEL, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR
  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:38.200
  • US." I THOUGHT, "DEAR GOD.
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:40.140
  • WE'RE BOTH GOING CRAZY."
  • 00:17:40.140 --> 00:17:41.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:43.080
  • LONG STORY SHORT, WE BOUGHT THE
  • 00:17:43.080 --> 00:17:44.150
  • PROPERTY, FIXED UP THE HOUSE.
  • 00:17:44.150 --> 00:17:45.190
  • A YEAR LATER A BUILDER KNOCKED
  • 00:17:45.190 --> 00:17:47.120
  • ON THE FRONT DOOR, UNEXPECTEDLY,
  • 00:17:47.120 --> 00:17:50.030
  • UNANNOUNCED. I ANSWERED IT.
  • 00:17:50.030 --> 00:17:52.170
  • HE SAID, "I'D LIKE TO BUY THIS
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:53.290
  • PROPERTY AND BUILD TWO NEW
  • 00:17:53.290 --> 00:17:55.230
  • HOUSES HERE."
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:57.080
  • I SAID, "WELL, THANK YOU BUT THE
  • 00:17:57.080 --> 00:17:57.270
  • PROPERTY IS NOT FOR SALE."
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:17:59.050
  • HE SAID, "HOW ABOUT I PAY YOU
  • 00:17:59.050 --> 00:18:00.100
  • THIS MUCH?" I SAID, "LIKE I
  • 00:18:00.100 --> 00:18:01.250
  • SAID, WE'D LOVE TO SELL IT."
  • 00:18:01.250 --> 00:18:04.080
  • (LAUGHTER) GOD DID EXCEEDINGLY,
  • 00:18:04.080 --> 00:18:06.120
  • ABUNDANTLY, ABOVE AND BEYOND.
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:07.290
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:07.290 --> 00:18:09.190
  • WE FELT LIKE ISAAC...THAT
  • 00:18:09.190 --> 00:18:11.110
  • HUNDRED FOLD RETURN.
  • 00:18:11.110 --> 00:18:14.060
  • WHAT AM I SAYING? GOD KNOWS
  • 00:18:14.060 --> 00:18:16.090
  • WHAT HE IS DOING. GOD HAS
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:17.050
  • INFORMATION THAT YOU DON'T
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:18.210
  • HAVE. HE CAN SEE WHAT YOU CAN'T
  • 00:18:18.210 --> 00:18:20.110
  • SEE. HE KNOWS THE END FROM THE
  • 00:18:20.110 --> 00:18:22.030
  • BEGINNING. DON'T ARGUE WITH
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:24.030
  • GOD. YOU'LL NEVER WIN. GOD
  • 00:18:24.030 --> 00:18:26.230
  • KNOWS HOW TO GET HIS WAY.
  • 00:18:26.230 --> 00:18:28.030
  • TRUST HIM. EVEN WHEN IT SEEMS
  • 00:18:28.030 --> 00:18:29.250
  • FAR OUT, DARE TO HAVE RADICAL
  • 00:18:29.250 --> 00:18:31.240
  • OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:18:31.240 --> 00:18:34.050
  • INSTEAD OF REASONING IT OUT,
  • 00:18:34.050 --> 00:18:35.190
  • MAKING EXCUSES, TALKING YOURSELF
  • 00:18:35.190 --> 00:18:37.090
  • OUT OF IT. NO, MAKE A DECISION
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:39.070
  • TO JUST DO IT.
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:41.060
  • THE QUICKER YOU OBEY THE QUICKER
  • 00:18:41.060 --> 00:18:42.200
  • GOD CAN RELEASE WHAT HE HAS FOR
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:44.140
  • YOU.
  • 00:18:44.140 --> 00:18:47.130
  • IN ACTS, CHAPTER NINE, THERE IS
  • 00:18:47.130 --> 00:18:48.130
  • THE STORY OF SAUL. SAUL WAS THE
  • 00:18:48.130 --> 00:18:49.290
  • GREATEST ENEMY OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:52.000
  • HE HATED BELIEVERS AND HE WAS
  • 00:18:52.000 --> 00:18:53.110
  • PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. HE WENT
  • 00:18:53.110 --> 00:18:55.020
  • AROUND HAVING THEM ARRESTED AND
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:56.170
  • PUT INTO PRISON. HE WAS KNOWN
  • 00:18:56.170 --> 00:18:58.100
  • FOR HIS PERSECUTION.
  • 00:18:58.100 --> 00:19:01.050
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "SAUL WAS
  • 00:19:01.050 --> 00:19:02.140
  • BREATHING OUT THREATENINGS AND
  • 00:19:02.140 --> 00:19:04.150
  • SLAUGHTERS AGAINST THE
  • 00:19:04.150 --> 00:19:06.290
  • DISCIPLES."
  • 00:19:06.290 --> 00:19:07.210
  • ONE DAY, SAUL WAS TRAVELING TO
  • 00:19:07.210 --> 00:19:09.000
  • DAMASCUS, ON HIS WAY TO ARREST
  • 00:19:09.000 --> 00:19:11.010
  • MORE BELIEVERS, WHEN A BRIGHT
  • 00:19:11.010 --> 00:19:13.100
  • LIGHT SHINED DOWN FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:15.180
  • KNOCKED HIM FLAT ON HIS BACK.
  • 00:19:15.180 --> 00:19:17.160
  • SAUL BECAME TOTALLY BLIND;
  • 00:19:17.160 --> 00:19:19.260
  • COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING. THE MEN
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:21.290
  • WITH SAUL WERE SPEECHLESS.
  • 00:19:21.290 --> 00:19:23.150
  • THEY PICKED SAUL UP, LED HIM
  • 00:19:23.150 --> 00:19:24.270
  • INTO DAMASCUS TOTALLY BLIND.
  • 00:19:25.060 --> 00:19:28.060
  • THERE WAS A MAN THAT LIVED THERE
  • 00:19:28.060 --> 00:19:29.110
  • BY THE NAME OF ANANIAS, A
  • 00:19:29.110 --> 00:19:30.290
  • BELIEVER. GOD SPOKE TO HIM IN A
  • 00:19:30.290 --> 00:19:33.020
  • DREAM AND TOLD HIM TO GO TO THE
  • 00:19:33.020 --> 00:19:34.220
  • HOUSE WHERE SAUL WAS STAYING
  • 00:19:34.220 --> 00:19:36.210
  • AND PRAY FOR HIM SO THAT HIS
  • 00:19:36.210 --> 00:19:38.280
  • SIGHT WOULD BE RESTORED.
  • 00:19:38.280 --> 00:19:41.270
  • YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT ANANIAS
  • 00:19:41.270 --> 00:19:43.190
  • MUST HAVE THOUGHT. I CAN HEAR
  • 00:19:43.190 --> 00:19:45.070
  • HIM SAYING, "EXCUSE ME, GOD?
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:46.250
  • YOU WANT ME TO GO PRAY FOR THE
  • 00:19:46.250 --> 00:19:48.230
  • MAN THAT'S ACTIVELY TRYING TO
  • 00:19:48.230 --> 00:19:50.220
  • KILL US, THE ONE THAT'S HUNTING
  • 00:19:50.220 --> 00:19:52.130
  • US DOWN, THE ONE THAT'S
  • 00:19:52.130 --> 00:19:54.040
  • BREATHING OUT THREATENINGS?
  • 00:19:54.040 --> 00:19:56.050
  • I DON'T THINK SO. HOW ABOUT I
  • 00:19:56.050 --> 00:19:57.220
  • SEND SOMEBODY FROM THE PRISON
  • 00:19:57.220 --> 00:19:59.020
  • MINISTRY?" (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:59.020 --> 00:20:00.090
  • "HOW ABOUT I GIVE HIM A PHONE
  • 00:20:00.090 --> 00:20:02.000
  • CALL INSTEAD?"
  • 00:20:02.000 --> 00:20:03.090
  • "BUT GOD, THAT'S TOO DANGEROUS.
  • 00:20:03.090 --> 00:20:04.090
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GO."
  • 00:20:04.090 --> 00:20:05.230
  • GOD SAID, "NO, ANANIAS. DO WHAT
  • 00:20:05.230 --> 00:20:07.000
  • I SAY. HE IS A CHOSEN
  • 00:20:07.000 --> 00:20:09.050
  • INSTRUMENT TO BEAR MY NAME."
  • 00:20:09.190 --> 00:20:12.190
  • VERSE SEVENTEEN SAYS, "ANANIAS
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:14.090
  • WENT AND FOUND SAUL. HE LAID
  • 00:20:14.090 --> 00:20:16.150
  • HANDS ON HIM AND SAID, 'BROTHER
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:18.050
  • SAUL.'" HE NOT ONLY FOUND HIM
  • 00:20:18.120 --> 00:20:21.120
  • BUT HE CALLED HIM BROTHER.
  • 00:20:21.120 --> 00:20:23.260
  • HE COULD HAVE CALLED HIM A LOT
  • 00:20:23.260 --> 00:20:25.010
  • OF OTHER THINGS.
  • 00:20:25.010 --> 00:20:26.210
  • "YOU LOUSY, NO GOOD, LOSER
  • 00:20:26.210 --> 00:20:28.020
  • TRYING TO KILL US. I HOPE YOU
  • 00:20:28.020 --> 00:20:28.290
  • STAY BLIND." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:28.290 --> 00:20:30.200
  • NO, ANANIAS PRAYED FOR SAUL.
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:34.200
  • HIS SIGHT WAS RESTORED.
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:36.240
  • HE BECAME THE APOSTLE PAUL WHO
  • 00:20:36.240 --> 00:20:38.150
  • WENT ON THE WRITE OVER HALF OF
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:40.200
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT. NONE OF THIS
  • 00:20:40.200 --> 00:20:42.290
  • WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF ANANIAS
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:45.070
  • HAD NOT HAD THIS BOLD
  • 00:20:45.070 --> 00:20:46.200
  • OBEDIENCE.
  • 00:20:46.200 --> 00:20:48.140
  • SOMETIMES GOD WILL ASK YOU TO DO
  • 00:20:48.140 --> 00:20:50.000
  • THINGS THAT DON'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:51.270
  • "GOD, YOU WANT ME TO DO THEM A
  • 00:20:51.270 --> 00:20:53.080
  • FAVOR WHEN THEY LEFT ME OUT ON
  • 00:20:53.080 --> 00:20:54.220
  • PURPOSE? GOD, YOU WANT ME TO
  • 00:20:54.220 --> 00:20:56.220
  • HELP THEM WHEN THEY WOULDN'T
  • 00:20:56.220 --> 00:20:57.280
  • HELP ME?"
  • 00:20:57.280 --> 00:20:59.250
  • LIKE ANANIAS, YOUR FIRST THOUGHT
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:01.240
  • MAY BE, "NO WAY. I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:03.090
  • TO DO THAT."
  • 00:21:03.090 --> 00:21:04.160
  • BUT IF YOU LISTEN AGAIN YOU'LL
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:06.010
  • HEAR GOD SAYING, "JUST DO IT.
  • 00:21:06.010 --> 00:21:07.230
  • SOW A RADICAL SEED. TAKE A STEP
  • 00:21:07.230 --> 00:21:09.130
  • OF FAITH."
  • 00:21:09.130 --> 00:21:11.120
  • WHEN YOU DO, GOD WILL DO
  • 00:21:11.120 --> 00:21:12.260
  • SOMETHING RADICAL IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:12.260 --> 00:21:15.140
  • WE CAN ALL MAKE EXCUSES,
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:16.260
  • "JOEL, IT'S TOO HARD. IT'S TOO
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:18.060
  • BIG A SACRIFICE. IT'S TOO
  • 00:21:18.060 --> 00:21:19.070
  • INCONVENIENT."
  • 00:21:19.070 --> 00:21:21.160
  • BUT IF YOU KEEP PUTTING IT OFF
  • 00:21:21.160 --> 00:21:22.270
  • THAT IS CAUSING GOD TO PUT OFF
  • 00:21:22.270 --> 00:21:24.120
  • WHAT HE HAS IN STORE FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:24.120 --> 00:21:26.210
  • WHEN YOU OBEY, A BLESSING IS
  • 00:21:26.210 --> 00:21:28.050
  • ATTACHED.
  • 00:21:28.050 --> 00:21:29.160
  • YOU MAY NOT UNDERSTAND IT. IT
  • 00:21:29.160 --> 00:21:30.210
  • MAY NOT MAKE SENSE. THAT'S
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:31.260
  • OKAY. BE LIKE ANANIAS AND JUST
  • 00:21:31.260 --> 00:21:33.180
  • DO IT.
  • 00:21:33.180 --> 00:21:35.070
  • MY BROTHER PAUL WAS A SURGEON IN
  • 00:21:35.070 --> 00:21:36.210
  • LITTLE ROCK FOR SEVENTEEN YEARS.
  • 00:21:36.210 --> 00:21:39.040
  • HE HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL
  • 00:21:39.040 --> 00:21:40.030
  • PRACTICE. HE WAS THE CHIEF OF
  • 00:21:40.030 --> 00:21:41.200
  • SURGERY. HE AND HIS PARTNERS
  • 00:21:41.200 --> 00:21:43.230
  • OWNED THE NEW HOSPITAL. LIFE
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:45.130
  • WAS GOOD. HE WAS HELPING A LOT
  • 00:21:45.130 --> 00:21:47.100
  • OF PEOPLE. BUT WHEN MY FATHER
  • 00:21:47.100 --> 00:21:49.150
  • WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD, PAUL
  • 00:21:49.150 --> 00:21:50.280
  • WAS DRIVING HOME FROM THE
  • 00:21:50.280 --> 00:21:52.070
  • MEMORIAL SERVICE, GOING BACK TO
  • 00:21:52.070 --> 00:21:53.240
  • LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS, WHEN HE
  • 00:21:53.240 --> 00:21:55.280
  • HEARD THAT STILL SMALL VOICE
  • 00:21:55.280 --> 00:21:57.290
  • SAY, "GO BACK TO HOUSTON AND
  • 00:21:57.290 --> 00:21:59.280
  • HELP THEM PASTOR THE CHURCH."
  • 00:21:59.280 --> 00:22:02.290
  • IN THE NATURAL, THAT DIDN'T MAKE
  • 00:22:02.290 --> 00:22:04.120
  • SENSE. HE HAD GONE TO SCHOOL
  • 00:22:04.120 --> 00:22:06.060
  • FOR TWELVE YEARS TO BECOME A
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:07.130
  • SURGEON, HAD ALL THIS TRAINING,
  • 00:22:07.130 --> 00:22:09.220
  • ALL THIS EXPERTISE. HIS
  • 00:22:09.220 --> 00:22:11.090
  • COLLEAGUES THOUGHT HE WAS
  • 00:22:11.090 --> 00:22:12.240
  • MAKING A BIG MISTAKE. THEY TOLD
  • 00:22:12.240 --> 00:22:14.120
  • HIM HE WAS HAVING A MID-LIFE
  • 00:22:14.120 --> 00:22:16.060
  • CRISIS AND TRIED TO TALK HIM
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:17.170
  • OUT OF IT BUT DEEP DOWN PAUL
  • 00:22:17.170 --> 00:22:19.230
  • KNEW THAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:22:19.230 --> 00:22:21.000
  • LEAVE HIS PRACTICE. HE HAD TO
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:22.260
  • TURN HIS MIND OFF AND LISTEN
  • 00:22:22.260 --> 00:22:24.290
  • TO HIS HEART. EVEN THOUGH HE
