  • 00:00:00.170 --> 00:00:10.040
  • JOEL OSTEEN: GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:00:10.020 --> 00:00:13.020
  • IT'S A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:00:13.020 --> 00:00:14.150
  • HOMES, AND IF YOU'RE EVER IN OUR
  • 00:00:14.150 --> 00:00:15.290
  • AREA, PLEASE STOP BY AND BE
  • 00:00:15.290 --> 00:00:17.210
  • A PART OF ONE OF OUR SERVICES.
  • 00:00:17.210 --> 00:00:19.230
  • I PROMISE YOU, WE'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:00:19.230 --> 00:00:21.150
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:23.040 --> 00:00:24.040
  • FUNNY, AND I HEARD
  • 00:00:24.040 --> 00:00:24.250
  • ABOUT THIS PASTOR.
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:26.170
  • HE WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET,
  • 00:00:26.170 --> 00:00:27.250
  • WHEN HE CAME UPON THIS GROUP
  • 00:00:27.250 --> 00:00:29.020
  • OF YOUNG BOYS THAT WERE
  • 00:00:29.020 --> 00:00:31.000
  • SURROUNDING A SMALL DOG.
  • 00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:32.170
  • HE ASKED WHAT THEY WERE DOING.
  • 00:00:32.170 --> 00:00:34.010
  • THEY EXPLAINED THAT THEY WERE
  • 00:00:34.010 --> 00:00:35.210
  • HAVING A CONTEST.
  • 00:00:35.210 --> 00:00:36.230
  • WHOEVER COULD TELL THE BIGGEST
  • 00:00:36.230 --> 00:00:38.100
  • LIE WOULD GET TO KEEP THE DOG.
  • 00:00:38.100 --> 00:00:40.170
  • THE PASTOR LAUNCHED INTO A 10
  • 00:00:40.170 --> 00:00:42.130
  • MINUTE SERMON, STARTING WITH,
  • 00:00:42.130 --> 00:00:43.220
  • "DON'T YOU KNOW LYING IS A SIN?"
  • 00:00:43.220 --> 00:00:45.210
  • AND ENDING WITH, "WHEN I WAS
  • 00:00:45.210 --> 00:00:47.160
  • YOUR AGE, I NEVER TOLD A LIE."
  • 00:00:47.160 --> 00:00:49.200
  • THERE WAS COMPLETE SILENCE,
  • 00:00:49.200 --> 00:00:50.190
  • AND JUST WHEN HE THOUGHT
  • 00:00:50.190 --> 00:00:52.040
  • HE'D GOTTEN THROUGH TO THEM,
  • 00:00:52.040 --> 00:00:53.080
  • THE YOUNGEST BOY SPOKE
  • 00:00:53.080 --> 00:00:54.120
  • UP AND SAID, "ALL RIGHT,
  • 00:00:54.120 --> 00:00:56.270
  • GIVE HIM THE DOG."
  • 00:00:56.270 --> 00:00:58.100
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:00:58.100 --> 00:00:59.220
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:01.040
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:01.040 --> 00:01:02.240
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:02.240 --> 00:01:04.190
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:06.220
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:06.220 --> 00:01:08.220
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:08.220 --> 00:01:09.100
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS, MY MIND IS
  • 00:01:09.100 --> 00:01:11.200
  • ALERT, MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE, I
  • 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:14.020
  • IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:01:16.020 --> 00:01:16.280
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:19.090 --> 00:01:21.280
  • WE ALL HAVE THINGS THAT COME
  • 00:01:23.240 --> 00:01:25.110
  • AGAINST US IN LIFE, PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:01:25.110 --> 00:01:27.030
  • AREN'T FAIR, WE'RE DEALING
  • 00:01:27.030 --> 00:01:28.130
  • WITH AN ILLNESS, OR BUSINESS
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:30.150
  • HAS GONE DOWN.
  • 00:01:30.150 --> 00:01:31.220
  • WERE PRAYING, BELIEVING,
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:33.000
  • DOING THE RIGHT THING,
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:34.190
  • BUT NOTHING IS CHANGING.
  • 00:01:34.190 --> 00:01:36.140
  • IT'S EASY TO GET DISCOURAGED
  • 00:01:36.140 --> 00:01:37.240
  • AND THINK IT'S NEVER GOING
  • 00:01:37.240 --> 00:01:39.040
  • TO IMPROVE.
  • 00:01:39.040 --> 00:01:40.110
  • BUT THE WAY YOU WIN SOME BATTLES
  • 00:01:40.110 --> 00:01:42.200
  • IS NOT BY DEFEATING
  • 00:01:42.200 --> 00:01:43.290
  • THE OPPOSITION,
  • 00:01:43.290 --> 00:01:45.020
  • BUT BY OUTLASTING
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:46.210
  • THE OPPOSITION.
  • 00:01:46.210 --> 00:01:48.030
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE STAYING POWER.
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:50.100
  • YOU CAN'T BE WEAK AND GIVE
  • 00:01:50.100 --> 00:01:52.050
  • UP BECAUSE IT'S NOT HAPPENING
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:53.230
  • ON YOUR TIMETABLE.
  • 00:01:53.230 --> 00:01:55.090
  • SOME ENEMIES ARE STUBBORN.
  • 00:01:55.090 --> 00:01:57.180
  • YOU HAVE TO OUTLAST THE TROUBLE
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:02:00.020
  • AT WORK, OUTLAST THE DIFFICULTY
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:02.030
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE, OUTLAST
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:03.140
  • THE SLOW SEASON IN YOUR
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:05.060
  • FINANCES.
  • 00:02:05.060 --> 00:02:06.170
  • WE WANT GOD TO DELIVER US
  • 00:02:06.170 --> 00:02:08.120
  • FROM THE ATTACK, BUT IF HE'S NOT
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:10.160
  • CHANGING IT, IT'S REAL SIMPLE,
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:12.200
  • YOU HAVE TO OUTLAST IT.
  • 00:02:12.200 --> 00:02:14.250
  • BUT SOMETIMES, WE FEEL LIKE
  • 00:02:14.250 --> 00:02:16.090
  • WE'VE SEEN HIM TURN SITUATIONS
  • 00:02:17.260 --> 00:02:19.110
  • AROUND IN THE PAST, BUT THIS
  • 00:02:19.110 --> 00:02:21.110
  • PROBLEM WON'T SEEM TO GO AWAY.
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:23.250
  • GOD IS STILL GOING TO TURN IT
  • 00:02:23.250 --> 00:02:26.010
  • AROUND, BUT THIS TIME, HE'S
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:27.200
  • GOING TO DO IT A DIFFERENT WAY.
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:29.230
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE A HOLY
  • 00:02:29.230 --> 00:02:32.060
  • DETERMINATION, A MADE UP MIND
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:34.080
  • WHERE YOU DIG YOUR HEELS
  • 00:02:34.080 --> 00:02:35.140
  • IN AND SAY, "I AM IN IT
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:37.040
  • FOR THE LONG HAUL.
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:38.180
  • QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION.
  • 00:02:38.180 --> 00:02:40.220
  • I AM GOING TO OUTLAST
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:42.220
  • THIS SICKNESS.
  • 00:02:42.220 --> 00:02:43.070
  • I'M GOING TO OUTLAST
  • 00:02:43.070 --> 00:02:44.200
  • THE ADDICTION.
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:45.120
  • I'M GOING TO OUTLAST THIS
  • 00:02:45.120 --> 00:02:47.280
  • INJUSTICE."
  • 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:48.140
  • THIS IS WHAT DAVID DID.
  • 00:02:48.140 --> 00:02:49.270
  • HE DEFEATED GOLIATH IN FIVE
  • 00:02:49.270 --> 00:02:52.020
  • MINUTES.
  • 00:02:52.020 --> 00:02:52.160
  • NO BIG DEAL.
  • 00:02:52.160 --> 00:02:53.240
  • GOD FAVORED HIM, AND HE QUICKLY
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:56.080
  • TOOK DOWN THIS HUGE GIANT.
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:58.110
  • OVERNIGHT, HE BECAME A NATIONAL
  • 00:02:58.110 --> 00:03:01.030
  • HERO.
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:01.200
  • BUT THERE WAS ANOTHER MAN NAMED
  • 00:03:01.200 --> 00:03:03.170
  • KING SAUL THAT WAS
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:04.250
  • AGAINST DAVID.
  • 00:03:04.250 --> 00:03:06.030
  • SAUL WAS ON THE THRONE
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:07.220
  • OF ISRAEL, WHEN GOD PROMISED
  • 00:03:07.220 --> 00:03:09.120
  • DAVID THE THRONE.
  • 00:03:09.120 --> 00:03:10.290
  • GOD COULD'VE HAD DAVID DEFEAT
  • 00:03:10.290 --> 00:03:13.080
  • SAUL LIKE HE DEFEATED GOLIATH,
  • 00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:15.190
  • QUICKLY, NO PROBLEM, BUT THIS
  • 00:03:15.190 --> 00:03:18.060
  • TIME WAS VERY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:03:18.060 --> 00:03:20.080
  • DAVID HAD BEEN ANOINTED TO BE
  • 00:03:20.080 --> 00:03:22.110
  • THE NEXT KING OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:03:22.110 --> 00:03:24.040
  • AND AFTER HE DEFEATED GOLIATH,
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:25.250
  • HE LEFT THE SHEPHERD'S FIELDS
  • 00:03:25.250 --> 00:03:27.170
  • AND WENT TO THE PALACE TO SERVE
  • 00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:30.000
  • KING SAUL.
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:30.220
  • BUT SAUL WAS JEALOUS OF DAVID.
  • 00:03:30.220 --> 00:03:33.020
  • HE COULD SEE THE FAVOR
  • 00:03:33.020 --> 00:03:35.080
  • ON HIS LIFE.
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:35.220
  • ONE TIME, DAVID WAS PLAYING
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:37.020
  • THE HARP FOR SAUL, TRYING
  • 00:03:37.020 --> 00:03:38.170
  • TO MAKE HIM FEEL BETTER.
  • 00:03:38.170 --> 00:03:40.050
  • SAUL THREW A SPEAR AT DAVID
  • 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:42.180
  • AND BARELY MISSED HIM.
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:44.080
  • DAVID HAD TO RUN FOR HIS LIFE.
  • 00:03:44.080 --> 00:03:46.190
  • HE SPENT MONTHS IN THE DESERT
  • 00:03:46.190 --> 00:03:49.050
  • IN HIDING, LIVING IN CAVES
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:51.090
  • WITH SAUL AND HIS MEN CONSTANTLY
  • 00:03:51.090 --> 00:03:53.080
  • ON HIS TRAIL TRYING TO KILL
  • 00:03:53.080 --> 00:03:55.080
  • DAVID.
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:56.150
  • IT WASN'T FAIR.
  • 00:03:56.150 --> 00:03:57.210
  • DAVID HAD DONE ANYTHING WRONG.
  • 00:03:57.210 --> 00:03:59.110
  • HE WAS BEING GOOD TO SAUL.
  • 00:03:59.110 --> 00:04:01.130
  • YOU WOULD THINK THAT GOD WOULD
  • 00:04:01.130 --> 00:04:03.250
  • STOP SAUL, VINDICATE DAVID,
  • 00:04:03.250 --> 00:04:05.130
  • AND PUT HIM ON THE THRONE
  • 00:04:05.130 --> 00:04:07.040
  • LIKE HE PROMISED.
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:07.290
  • BUT GOD DOESN'T ALWAYS DO THINGS
  • 00:04:07.290 --> 00:04:10.090
  • THE SAME WAY.
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:11.130
  • FOR SOME VICTORIES, WE HAVE
  • 00:04:11.130 --> 00:04:13.010
  • TO PROVE TO GOD THAT WILL DO
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:15.090
  • THE RIGHT THING WHEN THE WRONG
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:17.090
  • THING IS HAPPENING.
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:18.100
  • WE HAVE TO BE GOOD TO PEOPLE
  • 00:04:18.100 --> 00:04:20.000
  • WHEN THEY'RE NOT BEING GOOD
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:21.070
  • TO US.
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:22.130
  • WE HAVE TO STAY IN FAITH WHEN
  • 00:04:22.130 --> 00:04:24.090
  • IT'S UNFAIR, WHEN IT'S TAKING
  • 00:04:24.090 --> 00:04:25.190
  • LONGER THAN IT SHOULD, WHEN WE
  • 00:04:25.190 --> 00:04:27.150
  • DON'T SEE HOW IT COULD WORK OUT.
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:29.210
  • HOW BAD DO YOU WANT WHAT GOD
  • 00:04:29.210 --> 00:04:32.180
  • PROMISED YOU?
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:33.140
  • IF YOU GIVE UP EASILY, YOU
  • 00:04:33.140 --> 00:04:35.170
  • DIDN'T WANT IT BAD ENOUGH.
  • 00:04:35.170 --> 00:04:37.100
  • IF YOU LET PEOPLE DISCOURAGE
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:38.270
  • YOU.
  • 00:04:38.270 --> 00:04:39.110
  • BAD BREAKS TALK YOU OUT OF IT.
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:41.020
  • DELAYS CAUSE YOU TO QUIT
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:42.130
  • BELIEVING, THEN YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:43.170
  • TO MISS WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU.
  • 00:04:43.170 --> 00:04:46.090
  • THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF FAITH,
  • 00:04:46.090 --> 00:04:48.240
  • DELIVERING FAITH, AND SUSTAINING
  • 00:04:48.240 --> 00:04:50.150
  • FAITH.
  • 00:04:50.150 --> 00:04:51.200
  • DELIVERING FAITH IS WHEN GOD
  • 00:04:51.200 --> 00:04:53.160
  • INSTANTLY TURNS IT AROUND.
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:55.020
  • THAT'S WHEN WE DEFEAT
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:56.220
  • OUR GOLIATH.
  • 00:04:56.220 --> 00:04:57.060
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO WAIT.
  • 00:04:57.060 --> 00:04:58.170
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO ENDURE.
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:04:59.270
  • GOD SUDDENLY SHOWS OUT IN OUR
  • 00:04:59.270 --> 00:05:02.160
  • LIFE.
  • 00:05:02.160 --> 00:05:03.000
  • BUT MOST OF THE TIME, WE'RE
  • 00:05:03.000 --> 00:05:05.120
  • GOING TO NEED SUSTAINING FAITH.
  • 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:07.140
  • THAT'S WHEN GOD TAKES US
  • 00:05:07.140 --> 00:05:08.290
  • THROUGH THE DIFFICULTY,
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:09.280
  • THROUGH THE CHALLENGE.
  • 00:05:09.280 --> 00:05:11.160
  • HE COULD TURN IT AROUND
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:13.140
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:05:13.140 --> 00:05:14.020
  • HE COULD CHANGE IT INSTANTLY,
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:15.280
  • BUT IF HE DID THAT EVERY TIME,
  • 00:05:15.280 --> 00:05:18.180
  • OUR FAITH WOULD NEVER DEVELOP.
  • 00:05:18.180 --> 00:05:20.160
  • IT WOULDN'T GROW LIKE IT SHOULD.
  • 00:05:20.160 --> 00:05:22.260
  • SOMETHING HAPPENS
  • 00:05:22.260 --> 00:05:23.290
  • IN THE STRUGGLE.
  • 00:05:23.290 --> 00:05:25.190
  • WHEN OUR MIND TELLS US, "IT'S
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:27.090
  • NEVER GOING TO WORK OUT,"
  • 00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:28.220
  • BUT IN OUR HEART WE KNOW WHAT
  • 00:05:28.220 --> 00:05:31.040
  • OUR MIND SAYS, "YOU'RE WASTING
  • 00:05:33.070 --> 00:05:35.080
  • YOUR TIME.
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:36.020
  • THERE'S NO USE EVEN BELIEVING
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:37.200
  • ANYMORE," BUT YOU JUST KEEP
  • 00:05:37.200 --> 00:05:39.080
  • ON KEEPING ON, TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:05:39.080 --> 00:05:41.040
  • THANKING HIM THAT
  • 00:05:41.040 --> 00:05:42.190
  • IT'S ON THE WAY.
  • 00:05:42.190 --> 00:05:43.230
  • NOW, DON'T THINK THAT EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:46.000 --> 00:05:47.170
  • IS GOING TO BE EASY.
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:49.070
  • DON'T EXPECT EVERY PERSON TO BE
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:51.150
  • FOR YOU.
  • 00:05:51.150 --> 00:05:52.080
  • JUST BECAUSE IT HASN'T HAPPENED
  • 00:05:52.080 --> 00:05:53.260
  • YET, DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT GOING
  • 00:05:53.260 --> 00:05:55.240
  • TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:05:55.240 --> 00:05:57.000
  • THE VICTORY IS ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:59.040
  • OF THE OPPOSITION.
  • 00:05:59.040 --> 00:06:00.040
  • IT TAKES STAYING POWER, A MADE
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:02.180
  • UP MIND, SOMEONE THAT'S NOT
  • 00:06:02.180 --> 00:06:04.210
  • AT ONE POINT, DAVID SAW SAUL
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:09.190
  • AND HIS MEN SLEEPING.
  • 00:06:09.190 --> 00:06:11.080
  • HE SNUCK UP ON THEM AND
  • 00:06:11.080 --> 00:06:13.140
  • HE COULD'VE EASILY TAKEN
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:14.210
  • SAUL'S LIFE.
  • 00:06:14.210 --> 00:06:16.050
  • THIS WAS HIS BIG CHANCE TO GET
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:18.090
  • REVENGE, TO PAY HIM BACK,
  • 00:06:18.090 --> 00:06:19.240
  • BUT DAVID WOULDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:22.010
  • SAUL HAD BEEN ANOINTED TO BE
  • 00:06:22.010 --> 00:06:24.080
  • THE KING.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:25.010
  • DAVID KNEW TO TOUCH NOT GOD'S
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:28.080
  • ANOINTED.
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:28.250
  • HAD DAVID TAKEN MATTERS INTO HIS
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.180
  • OWN HANDS, THAT WOULD HAVE KEPT
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:32.120
  • HIM FROM THE THRONE.
  • 00:06:32.120 --> 00:06:34.090
  • YOU HAVE TO PASS THE TEST
  • 00:06:34.090 --> 00:06:36.060
  • OF HONORING THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:06:36.060 --> 00:06:37.230
  • IN AUTHORITY, NOT BECAUSE
  • 00:06:37.230 --> 00:06:39.140
  • THEY'RE DOING WHAT'S RIGHT,
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:41.050
  • BUT BECAUSE OF THEIR POSITION.
  • 00:06:41.050 --> 00:06:43.110
  • IT'S EASY TO BE DISRESPECTFUL
  • 00:06:43.110 --> 00:06:45.040
  • TO PEOPLE WHEN THEY'RE BEING
  • 00:06:45.040 --> 00:06:46.270
  • DISRESPECTFUL TO US.
  • 00:06:46.270 --> 00:06:48.220
  • IT'S EASY TO WANT TO VINDICATE
  • 00:06:48.220 --> 00:06:50.280
  • OURSELVES.
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:51.120
  • HERE'S MY BIG CHANCE TO PAY THEM
  • 00:06:51.120 --> 00:06:53.140
  • AFTER ALL, THEY DID IT TO ME.
  • 00:06:55.110 --> 00:06:57.100
  • NO STAY ON THE HIGH ROAD, LET
  • 00:06:57.100 --> 00:06:59.210
  • GOD BE YOUR VINDICATOR, LET HIM
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:01.250
  • PAY YOUR ENEMIES BACK.
  • 00:07:01.250 --> 00:07:03.070
  • GOD SEES WHAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 00:07:03.070 --> 00:07:05.000
  • HE SEES EVERY WRONG, EVERY
  • 00:07:05.000 --> 00:07:07.170
  • INJUSTICE.
  • 00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:08.020
  • IF YOU'LL LEAVE IT UP TO GOD,
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:10.030
  • HE'LL VINDICATE YOU BETTER THAN
  • 00:07:10.030 --> 00:07:11.160
  • YOU CAN VINDICATE YOURSELF.
  • 00:07:11.160 --> 00:07:13.240
  • MONTH AFTER MONTH, DAVID KEPT
  • 00:07:13.240 --> 00:07:15.260
  • DOING THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:07:15.260 --> 00:07:17.160
  • HE COULD'VE BEEN SOUR.
  • 00:07:17.160 --> 00:07:19.020
  • "GOD, IT WAS EASY TO DEFEAT
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:20.240
  • GOLIATH.
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:21.090
  • DAVID UNDERSTOOD, SOME
  • 00:07:23.220 --> 00:07:25.160
  • OPPOSITION YOU HAVE TO OUTLAST.
  • 00:07:25.220 --> 00:07:28.220
  • IF YOU GET DISCOURAGED, WORN
  • 00:07:28.220 --> 00:07:30.080
  • DOWN, IT'S NEVER GOING
  • 00:07:30.080 --> 00:07:31.160
  • TO HAPPEN, YOU'LL MISS WHAT GOD
  • 00:07:31.160 --> 00:07:34.020
  • HAS IN STORE, AND 13 YEARS
  • 00:07:34.020 --> 00:07:36.180
  • AFTER DAVID WAS CHOSEN TO BE
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:38.240
  • KING, AFTER ALL THE HIDING,
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:40.200
  • BEING MISTREATED, SAUL WAS
  • 00:07:40.200 --> 00:07:42.180
  • KILLED IN A BATTLE.
  • 00:07:42.180 --> 00:07:44.180
  • HE WAS SUDDENLY TAKEN AWAY
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:46.280
  • AND DAVID BECAME THE KING.
  • 00:07:46.280 --> 00:07:49.080
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS, DAVID
  • 00:07:49.080 --> 00:07:51.040
  • NEVER DEFEATED SAUL.
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:52.160
  • HE'S SIMPLY OUTLASTED HIM,
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:53.270
  • AND WHEN YOU LET GOD FIGHT YOUR
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:56.110
  • BATTLES, HE'LL GET YOU TO WHERE
  • 00:07:56.110 --> 00:07:58.210
  • NOW, SOME OF THE CHALLENGES THAT
  • 00:08:00.160 --> 00:08:02.160
  • YOU'RE FACING, YOU'RE BEING YOUR
  • 00:08:02.160 --> 00:08:04.080
  • BEST, BUT THINGS AREN'T
  • 00:08:04.080 --> 00:08:05.270
  • IMPROVING.
  • 00:08:05.270 --> 00:08:06.120
  • LIKE DAVID, YOU HAVE TO OUTLAST
  • 00:08:06.170 --> 00:08:09.170
  • THAT OPPOSITION.
  • 00:08:09.170 --> 00:08:10.190
  • IF YOU'LL JUST OUTLAST IT,
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:14.180
  • YOU'LL SEE THE VICTORY.
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:16.080
  • GOD WILL TAKE CARE
  • 00:08:16.080 --> 00:08:18.030
  • OF YOUR SAULS.
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:18.270
  • YOU KEEP HONORING GOD, AND YOU
  • 00:08:18.270 --> 00:08:20.230
  • WON'T EVEN HAVE TO FIGHT.
  • 00:08:20.230 --> 00:08:22.100
  • GOD WILL MOVE THE WRONG PEOPLE
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:23.280
  • OUT OF THE WAY.
  • 00:08:23.280 --> 00:08:25.010
  • HE'LL OPEN DOORS THAT YOU
  • 00:08:25.010 --> 00:08:26.190
  • COULDN'T OPEN.
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:27.090
  • HE'LL TURN THE SITUATION IN YOUR

  • HEALTH AROUND.
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:30.070
  • NOW, OUTLAST THE SICKNESS,
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:32.110
  • OUTLAST THE LONELINESS, OUTLAST
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:34.160
  • THE TROUBLE AT WORK.
  • 00:08:34.160 --> 00:08:35.220
  • YOU HAVE TO TAP INTO YOUR

  • STAYING POWER.
  • 00:08:37.250 --> 00:08:38.150
  • FOR THIS BIG COMPANY.
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:40.280
  • FOR YEARS, HIS SUPERVISOR WAS
  • 00:08:40.280 --> 00:08:42.280
  • AGAINST HIM, WAS ALWAYS PUTTING
  • 00:08:42.280 --> 00:08:44.290
  • HIM DOWN, MAKING HIM LOOK BAD.
  • 00:08:44.290 --> 00:08:47.200
  • THIS SUPERVISOR EVEN WENT
  • 00:08:47.200 --> 00:08:48.270
  • TO THE MAIN BOSS AND TRIED
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:50.240
  • TO GET THIS MAN FIRED,
  • 00:08:50.240 --> 00:08:52.100
  • BUT THE BOSS WOULDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:08:52.100 --> 00:08:54.080
  • THE BOSS TOOK ALL OF HIS OTHER
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:56.160
  • RECOMMENDATIONS.
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:57.010
  • WHY WOULDN'T HE TAKE THIS ONE?
  • 00:08:57.010 --> 00:08:58.190
  • BECAUSE GOD IS IN CONTROL
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:09:00.190
  • OF YOUR LIFE, NOT PEOPLE, NOT
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:02.280
  • THE SICKNESS, NOT THE ADDICTION.
  • 00:09:02.280 --> 00:09:04.170
  • THIS SUPERVISOR WAS ALWAYS
  • 00:09:06.240 --> 00:09:08.130
  • SPREADING RUMORS ABOUT THIS MAN,
  • 00:09:08.130 --> 00:09:10.190
  • TRYING TO POISON HIM IN FRONT
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:12.150
  • OF ALL THE OTHER EMPLOYEES,
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:14.020
  • BUT THIS MAN JUST KEPT DOING
  • 00:09:14.020 --> 00:09:16.000
  • THE RIGHT THING, OVERLOOKING
  • 00:09:16.000 --> 00:09:17.100
  • OFFENSES, BEIN' GOOD TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:17.100 --> 00:09:19.260
  • ONE MORNING, THIS SUPERVISOR WAS
  • 00:09:19.260 --> 00:09:21.270
  • CALLED INTO THE MAIN OFFICE.
  • 00:09:21.270 --> 00:09:23.290
  • HE'D BEEN WITH THE COMPANY

  • LOOKED LIKE HE WOULD RETIRE

  • THERE, BUT THAT DAY HE WAS
  • 00:09:28.010 --> 00:09:29.290
  • UNEXPECTEDLY TERMINATED.
  • 00:09:29.290 --> 00:09:32.030
  • THEY LET HIM GO.

  • A FEW MINUTES LATER,
  • 00:09:33.180 --> 00:09:34.290
  • THEY CALLED MY FRIEND IN.
  • 00:09:34.290 --> 00:09:36.000
  • THEY GAVE HIM THE SUPERVISOR'S
  • 00:09:38.080 --> 00:09:39.280
  • JOB.
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:41.060
  • HE SAID, "JOEL, I WASN'T

  • TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO?
  • 00:10:59.000 --> 00:11:00.210
  • YOU HAVE NO AUTHORITY HERE.

  • 00:11:44.200 --> 00:11:45.250
  • TO CHANGE HIS MIND."
  • 00:11:45.250 --> 00:11:46.240
  • HE HAD TO OUTLAST PHARAOH'S
  • 00:11:46.240 --> 00:11:49.030
  • STUBBORNNESS, AND I WONDER IF
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:51.110
  • YOU'RE FRUSTRATED BY AN ENEMY
  • 00:11:51.110 --> 00:11:53.090
  • THAT GOD IS CAUSING TO BE
  • 00:11:53.090 --> 00:11:55.190
  • STUBBORN.
  • 00:11:55.190 --> 00:11:56.260
  • HE'S NOT LETTING IT WORK
  • 00:11:56.260 --> 00:11:58.140
  • OUT YET BECAUSE HE'S GOING
  • 00:11:58.140 --> 00:12:00.030
  • TO USE THAT SITUATION
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:01.210
  • TO CATAPULT YOU TO A NEW LEVEL.
  • 00:12:01.210 --> 00:12:04.140
  • ALL YOU CAN SEE IS,
  • 00:12:04.140 --> 00:12:06.220
  • NOTHING IS IMPROVING.
  • 00:12:06.220 --> 00:12:07.160
  • WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE IS WHAT GOD
  • 00:12:07.160 --> 00:12:09.240
  • IS ABOUT TO DO, THE DOORS HE'S
  • 00:12:09.240 --> 00:12:12.020
  • ABOUT TO OPEN, THE HEALING,
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:13.280
  • THE FAVOR, THE VINDICATION,
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.130
  • THE BREAKTHROUGHS.
  • 00:12:15.130 --> 00:12:17.110
  • NOW, YOU MAY HAVE SOME
  • 00:12:17.110 --> 00:12:19.150
  • STUBBORN ENEMIES.
  • 00:12:19.150 --> 00:12:20.040
  • THE GOOD NEWS, THEY ARE NOT TOO
  • 00:12:20.040 --> 00:12:22.150
  • STUBBORN FOR OUR GOD.
  • 00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:23.270
  • HE WOULD NOT HAVE ALLOWED IT IF
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:25.160
  • HE WASN'T GOING TO BRING YOU
  • 00:12:25.160 --> 00:12:27.000
  • OUT BETTER.
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:28.160
  • NOW, YOU HAVE TO GET
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:30.080
  • YOUR FIRE BACK.
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:30.270
  • DIG YOUR HEELS IN A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:12:30.270 --> 00:12:33.020
  • DEEPER AND SHOW THE ENEMY YOU'RE
  • 00:12:33.020 --> 00:12:34.290
  • MORE DETERMINED THAN HE IS.
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:36.260
  • GOD DIDN'T BRING YOU THIS FAR
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:38.290
  • TO LEAVE YOU.
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:40.010
  • HE DIDN'T LET PHARAOH SAY NO
  • 00:12:40.010 --> 00:12:42.120
  • BECAUSE HE'S MORE POWERFUL.
  • 00:12:42.120 --> 00:12:44.000
  • GOD IS SETTING YOU UP TO SHOW
  • 00:12:44.000 --> 00:12:46.170
  • OUT IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:48.020
  • HE ALLOWED THE OPPOSITION NOT
  • 00:12:48.020 --> 00:12:50.080
  • TO STOP YOU, BUT TO PROMOTE YOU.
  • 00:12:50.120 --> 00:12:53.120
  • NOW, YOU NEED TO BE MORE
  • 00:12:53.120 --> 00:12:55.110
  • STUBBORN IN YOUR FAITH THEN
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:57.020
  • THE STUBBORN THINGS THAT COME
  • 00:12:57.020 --> 00:12:58.270
  • AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:12:58.270 --> 00:12:59.190
  • THAT SICKNESS MAY BE STUBBORN.
  • 00:12:59.190 --> 00:13:01.220
  • YOU CAN'T SEEM TO GET WELL.
  • 00:13:01.220 --> 00:13:03.090
  • THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:13:03.090 --> 00:13:04.160
  • I'M MORE STUBBORN THAN
  • 00:13:04.160 --> 00:13:05.190
  • THE SICKNESS.
  • 00:13:05.190 --> 00:13:06.060
  • I WILL LIVE AND NOT DIE.
  • 00:13:06.060 --> 00:13:08.040
  • FATHER, THANK YOU THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:13:08.040 --> 00:13:09.170
  • RESTORING HEALTH BACK UNTO ME.
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:11.010
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:13:11.010 --> 00:13:12.090
  • THE NUMBER OF MY DAYS,
  • 00:13:12.090 --> 00:13:13.260
  • YOU WILL FULFILL.
  • 00:13:13.260 --> 00:13:14.120
  • THAT FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY IS
  • 00:13:14.120 --> 00:13:16.100
  • STUBBORN.
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:16.250
  • THAT'S BEEN IN MY FAMILY LINE
  • 00:13:16.250 --> 00:13:18.100
  • FOR GENERATIONS, BUT CAN I TELL
  • 00:13:18.100 --> 00:13:19.240
  • YOU, I'M MORE STUBBORN.
  • 00:13:19.240 --> 00:13:21.190
  • I WILL LEND AND NOT BORROW.
  • 00:13:21.190 --> 00:13:23.200
  • FATHER, THANK YOU THAT ABUNDANCE
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:25.060
  • IS COMING MY WAY.
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:26.130
  • THANK YOU THAT WHAT I TOUCH
  • 00:13:26.130 --> 00:13:28.220
  • PROSPERS AND SUCCEEDS.
  • 00:13:28.220 --> 00:13:29.270
  • MOSES WENT BACK AND TOLD
  • 00:13:29.270 --> 00:13:31.220
  • THE PHARAOH AGAIN AND AGAIN
  • 00:13:31.220 --> 00:13:33.190
  • TO LET THEM GO, BUT PHARAOH
  • 00:13:33.190 --> 00:13:36.100
  • WAS STUBBORN.
  • 00:13:36.100 --> 00:13:36.240
  • YET, MOSES WAS MORE STUBBORN.
  • 00:13:36.240 --> 00:13:39.180
  • EVERY TIME THE ENEMY TELLS YOU,
  • 00:13:39.180 --> 00:13:41.070
  • "NO," YOU NEED TO GO BACK
  • 00:13:41.070 --> 00:13:42.270
  • AND TELL HIM, "YES,"
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:44.170
  • ONE MORE TIME.
  • 00:13:44.170 --> 00:13:45.070
  • DON'T LET THE ENEMY HAVE
  • 00:13:45.070 --> 00:13:46.230
  • THE LAST WORD.
  • 00:13:46.230 --> 00:13:47.210
  • KEEP SPEAKING FAITH OVER
  • 00:13:47.210 --> 00:13:49.110
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:13:49.110 --> 00:13:49.270
  • KEEP DECLARING FAVOR.
  • 00:13:49.270 --> 00:13:51.180
  • KEEP CALLING YOURSELF BLESSED,
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:54.110
  • HEALTHY, STRONG, VICTORIOUS.
  • 00:13:54.110 --> 00:13:56.140
  • PHARAOH FINALLY DECIDED TO LET
  • 00:13:56.140 --> 00:13:58.050
  • THE ISRAELITES GO, AND THESE 2
  • 00:13:58.050 --> 00:14:00.090
  • MILLION PEOPLE HEADED TOWARD
  • 00:14:00.090 --> 00:14:02.040
  • THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 00:14:02.040 --> 00:14:03.160
  • WASN'T LONG BEFORE PHARAOH
  • 00:14:03.160 --> 00:14:04.290
  • CHANGED HIS MIND AND CAME
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:06.230
  • CHASING AFTER THEM.
  • 00:14:06.230 --> 00:14:08.210
  • IT LOOKED LIKE A SETBACK,
  • 00:14:08.210 --> 00:14:10.120
  • BUT REALLY, GOD WAS SETTING THEM
  • 00:14:10.120 --> 00:14:12.140
  • UP.
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:13.210
  • THEY WERE AT A DEAD END
  • 00:14:13.210 --> 00:14:15.050
  • AT THE RED SEA.
  • 00:14:15.050 --> 00:14:16.040
  • THEY HAD NOWHERE TO GO, BUT JUST
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:18.090
  • BECAUSE YOU'VE RUN
  • 00:14:18.090 --> 00:14:19.080
  • OUT OF OPTIONS, DOESN'T MEAN GOD
  • 00:14:19.080 --> 00:14:21.040
  • HAS RUN OUT OF OPTIONS.
  • 00:14:21.040 --> 00:14:22.220
  • GOD TOLD THE ISRAELITES, "THE
  • 00:14:22.220 --> 00:14:24.160
  • ENEMIES YOU SEE TODAY, YOU WILL
  • 00:14:24.160 --> 00:14:26.210
  • SEE NO MORE."
  • 00:14:26.210 --> 00:14:28.110
  • THE RED SEA PARTED.
  • 00:14:28.110 --> 00:14:29.270
  • THE ISRAELITES WENT
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:30.260
  • THROUGH ON DRY GROUND.
  • 00:14:30.260 --> 00:14:32.050
  • WHEN PHARAOH AND THE ARMY CAME
  • 00:14:32.050 --> 00:14:34.020
  • CHASING, THE WATERS CLOSED UP.
  • 00:14:34.020 --> 00:14:35.200
  • THEY WERE ALL DROWNED.
  • 00:14:35.200 --> 00:14:36.280
  • THEY SAW THOSE ENEMIES NO MORE.
  • 00:14:36.280 --> 00:14:39.180
  • YOU MAY HAVE SITUATIONS THAT
  • 00:14:39.180 --> 00:14:41.030
  • LOOK LIKE THEY'LL NEVER
  • 00:14:41.030 --> 00:14:42.140
  • WORK OUT.
  • 00:14:42.140 --> 00:14:43.240
  • GOD IS SAYING TO YOU WHAT HE
  • 00:14:43.240 --> 00:14:45.190
  • SAID TO THEM.
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:46.130
  • THAT DEPRESSION, YOU'RE
  • 00:14:46.130 --> 00:14:47.150
  • THAT IS NOT YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:51.190
  • THAT STRUGGLE IN YOUR FINANCES,
  • 00:14:51.190 --> 00:14:53.100
  • YOU CAN'T GET AHEAD, YOU'RE
  • 00:14:53.100 --> 00:14:55.020
  • ABOUT TO SEE THE ENEMY OF LACK
  • 00:14:55.020 --> 00:14:57.190
  • NO MORE.
  • 00:14:57.190 --> 00:14:58.110
  • GOD'S ABOUT TO RELEASE YOU
  • 00:14:58.110 --> 00:15:00.200
  • INTO ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:15:00.200 --> 00:15:01.180
  • THE SICKNESS THAT'S BEEN
  • 00:15:01.180 --> 00:15:03.050
  • HINDERING YOU, THE ADDICTION,
  • 00:15:03.050 --> 00:15:04.230
  • THE LONELINESS, THE ANXIETY, YOU
  • 00:15:04.230 --> 00:15:06.110
  • MIGHT AS WELL HAVE A GOING AWAY
  • 00:15:06.110 --> 00:15:08.190
  • PARTY.
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:09.250
  • YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THEM
  • 00:15:09.250 --> 00:15:10.130
  • NO MORE.
  • 00:15:10.130 --> 00:15:10.270
  • GOD IS DOING A NEW THING.
  • 00:15:12.120 --> 00:15:14.120
  • NOW, KEEP THIS TENACITY
  • 00:15:14.120 --> 00:15:16.090
  • DOWN IN YOUR SPIRIT.
  • 00:15:16.090 --> 00:15:18.060
  • THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE
  • 00:15:18.060 --> 00:15:20.000
  • TIRED, AND WEAK, AND RUNDOWN.
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:21.100
  • YOU'VE BEEN ARMED WITH STRENGTH
  • 00:15:21.100 --> 00:15:23.040
  • FOR EVERY BATTLE.
  • 00:15:23.040 --> 00:15:24.080
  • YOU ARE NOT WEAK.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:25.160
  • YOU ARE WELL ABLE TO OUTLAST
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:27.290
  • WHAT'S TRYING TO STOP YOU.
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:30.000
  • OVER THESE LAST 20 YEARS THAT
  • 00:15:30.000 --> 00:15:31.250
  • I'VE BEEN PASTORING, I'VE HAD
  • 00:15:31.250 --> 00:15:33.110
  • TO LEARN TO OUTLAST SOME THINGS.
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:35.230
  • WHEN I FIRST STEPPED
  • 00:15:35.230 --> 00:15:36.280
  • UP TO MINISTER, EVERY THOUGHT
  • 00:15:36.280 --> 00:15:38.120
  • TOLD ME THAT I COULDN'T DO IT,
  • 00:15:38.120 --> 00:15:40.070
  • THAT I WASN'T QUALIFIED, THAT I
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:41.240
  • DIDN'T HAVE THE TALENT.
  • 00:15:41.240 --> 00:15:43.100
  • I TRIED TO PUSH THOSE THOUGHTS
  • 00:15:43.100 --> 00:15:44.270
  • DOWN, BUT THEY CAME RIGHT
  • 00:15:44.270 --> 00:15:46.160
  • BACK UP.
  • 00:15:46.160 --> 00:15:47.220
  • THEY WERE STUBBORN.
  • 00:15:47.220 --> 00:15:49.000
  • I COULDN'T PRAY THEM AWAY,
  • 00:15:49.000 --> 00:15:50.230
  • I COULDN'T BELIEVE THEM AWAY,
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:52.080
  • I HAD TO OUTLAST THE INSECURITY,
  • 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:55.000
  • THE INTIMIDATION.
  • 00:15:57.100 --> 00:15:59.000
  • I WISH I COULD TELL YOU, IF YOU
  • 00:15:59.000 --> 00:16:00.240
  • HAD ENOUGH FAITH, YOU WOULD
  • 00:16:00.240 --> 00:16:01.270
  • NEVER HAVE TO FIGHT FEAR,
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:04.000
  • OR ANXIETY, OR PEOPLE BEING
  • 00:16:04.000 --> 00:16:06.040
  • AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:07.120
  • THAT'S NOT THE CASE.
  • 00:16:07.120 --> 00:16:08.190
  • SOME THINGS YOU JUST HAVE
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:10.120
  • TO OUTLAST.
  • 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:11.040
  • YOU HAVE TO BE MORE DETERMINED
  • 00:16:11.040 --> 00:16:12.200
  • THAN WHAT'S TRYING TO HOLD YOU
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:14.060
  • BACK.
  • 00:16:14.060 --> 00:16:15.120
  • 20 YEARS LATER, I DON'T FIGHT
  • 00:16:15.120 --> 00:16:17.030
  • THOSE SAME THOUGHTS.
  • 00:16:17.030 --> 00:16:17.290
  • I DON'T SEE TODAY.
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:22.100
  • WHAT AM I SAYING?
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:24.000
  • DON'T GET STUCK IN THE MIDDLE.
  • 00:16:24.000 --> 00:16:26.020
  • DON'T BELIEVE THE LIES THAT
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:27.220
  • WHERE YOU ARE AS PERMANENT.
  • 00:16:27.220 --> 00:16:29.120
  • YOU'LL ALWAYS BE THAT WAY.
  • 00:16:29.120 --> 00:16:31.030
  • OUTLAST THE OPPOSITION.
  • 00:16:31.030 --> 00:16:33.010
  • KEEP BELIEVING.
  • 00:16:33.010 --> 00:16:34.120
  • KEEP REPROGRAMMING YOUR MIND
  • 00:16:34.120 --> 00:16:35.270
  • KEEP THANKING GOD THAT HE'S
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:37.240
  • BIGGER THAN WHAT YOU'RE FACING.
  • 00:16:37.240 --> 00:16:40.080
  • A FEW YEARS AFTER I STARTED
  • 00:16:40.080 --> 00:16:42.000
  • PASTORING, THE CHURCH BEGAN
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:43.050
  • TO REALLY GROW, AND MORE PEOPLE
  • 00:16:43.050 --> 00:16:45.170
  • STARTED WATCHING.
  • 00:16:45.170 --> 00:16:46.120
  • THAT'S GREAT, BUT WITH ALL
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:48.110
  • THE EXPOSURE COMES MORE CRITICS,
  • 00:16:48.110 --> 00:16:50.100
  • AND PEOPLE THAT DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:16:50.100 --> 00:16:51.230
  • YOU, PEOPLE THAT DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:16:51.230 --> 00:16:53.160
  • TO SUCCEED.
  • 00:16:53.160 --> 00:16:54.230
  • AT FIRST, I DIDN'T KNOW HOW IT
  • 00:16:54.230 --> 00:16:56.150
  • WAS GOING TO WORK OUT.
  • 00:16:56.150 --> 00:16:57.240
  • IT SEEMED LIKE EVERY WEEK
  • 00:16:57.240 --> 00:16:59.040
  • SOMEONE WAS COMING AGAINST US
  • 00:16:59.040 --> 00:17:00.160
  • TRYING TO DISCREDIT US, BUT I
  • 00:17:00.160 --> 00:17:02.270
  • NEVER DEBATED WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:02.270 --> 00:17:04.160
  • I NEVER TRIED TO CHANGE
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:06.010
  • THEIR MINDS.
  • 00:17:06.010 --> 00:17:06.150
  • I JUST KEPT RUNNING MY RACE
  • 00:17:06.150 --> 00:17:08.050
  • HONORING GOD, BEIN' THE BEST
  • 00:17:08.050 --> 00:17:09.180
  • THAT I COULD BE.
  • 00:17:09.180 --> 00:17:11.180
  • IT WAS ABOUT 10 YEARS IN THAT I
  • 00:17:11.180 --> 00:17:14.120
  • FELT SOMETHING LIFT OFF OF ME.
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:16.150
  • IT WAS LIKE GOD SAID, "ALL
  • 00:17:16.150 --> 00:17:18.150
  • RIGHT, JOEL, YOU'VE OUTLASTED
  • 00:17:18.150 --> 00:17:19.250
  • YOUR CRITICS.
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:21.030
  • YOU PASSED THIS TEST.
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:22.100
  • NOW, THE ENEMIES YOU SEE TODAY,
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:24.190
  • YOU WON'T SEE ANYMORE."
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:26.050
  • AND YES, SURE, I STILL HAVE
  • 00:17:26.050 --> 00:17:27.270
  • A FEW CRITICS, MAYBE A COUPLE,
  • 00:17:27.270 --> 00:17:29.190
  • BUT PEOPLE CAN'T STOP
  • 00:17:29.190 --> 00:17:31.240
  • YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:17:31.240 --> 00:17:32.080
  • GOD BEING FOR YOU IS MORE THAN
  • 00:17:32.080 --> 00:17:34.200
  • THE WORLD BEING AGAINST YOU.
  • 00:17:34.200 --> 00:17:36.130
  • MY ENCOURAGEMENT, DON'T FIGHT
  • 00:17:36.130 --> 00:17:38.190
  • WITH YOUR CRITICS.
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:40.080
  • JUST OUTLAST THEM.
  • 00:17:40.080 --> 00:17:42.080
  • LET YOUR ACTIONS SPEAK FOR YOU.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:44.210
  • LET YOUR SUCCESS DO THE TALKING.
  • 00:17:44.210 --> 00:17:47.190
  • PAUL SAID IN EPHESIANS, "HAVING
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:49.180
  • DONE ALL TO STAND," HE WAS
  • 00:17:49.180 --> 00:17:51.280
  • SAYING, WHEN YOU'VE DONE
  • 00:17:51.280 --> 00:17:53.060
  • EVERYTHING YOU CAN, YOU'VE DONE
  • 00:17:53.060 --> 00:17:54.240
  • YOUR BEST TO GET WELL, YOU'VE
  • 00:17:54.240 --> 00:17:56.110
  • BEEN GOOD TO PEOPLE THAT WEREN'T
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:17:57.280
  • GOOD TO YOU, YOU'VE WORKED HARD
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:17:59.270
  • AND HAVEN'T SEEN INCREASE.
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:01.100
  • WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:18:01.100 --> 00:18:02.170
  • GET UPSET, DISCOURAGED, GIVE UP?
  • 00:18:02.170 --> 00:18:04.280
  • NO, JUST STAND.
  • 00:18:04.280 --> 00:18:06.240
  • STANDING IS TRUSTING GOD,
  • 00:18:06.240 --> 00:18:08.170
  • KNOWING THAT HE IS IN CONTROL.
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:11.070
  • WHEN YOU'RE STANDING, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:18:11.070 --> 00:18:13.000
  • FRUSTRATED BY WHAT'S NOT
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:14.130
  • HAPPENING, YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:15.240
  • COMPLAINING BECAUSE IT'S TAKING
  • 00:18:15.240 --> 00:18:17.180
  • SO LONG.
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:18.260
  • YOU'RE AT PEACE.
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:20.020
  • YOU'RE AT REST.
  • 00:18:20.020 --> 00:18:21.090
  • YOU KNOW WHAT GOD STARTED
  • 00:18:21.090 --> 00:18:22.150
  • IN YOUR LIFE, HE'S GOING
  • 00:18:22.150 --> 00:18:23.230
  • TO FINISH.
  • 00:18:23.230 --> 00:18:25.030
  • THE AMPLIFIED SAYS, "STAND FIRM,
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:28.150
  • IMMOVABLE."
  • 00:18:28.150 --> 00:18:29.060
  • THAT MEANS, YOU'RE NOT MOVED
  • 00:18:29.060 --> 00:18:31.020
  • BY THE MEDICAL REPORT.
  • 00:18:31.020 --> 00:18:32.170
  • YOU'RE NOT MOVED BY HOW YOUR
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:34.040
  • CHILD IS ACTING.
  • 00:18:34.040 --> 00:18:34.290
  • YOU'RE NOT MOVED BY THE CONTRACT
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:36.190
  • THAT DIDN'T GO THROUGH.
  • 00:18:36.190 --> 00:18:37.240
  • BELIEVING, YOU KEEP THANKING
  • 00:18:39.240 --> 00:18:41.170
  • GOD, YOU KEEP BEING YOUR BEST.
  • 00:18:41.170 --> 00:18:43.220
  • QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION.
  • 00:18:43.220 --> 00:18:45.240
  • GIVING UP IS NOT
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:47.200
  • IN YOUR MINDSET.
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:48.070
  • YOU KNOW WHAT GOD PROMISED
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:49.280
  • IS ON THE WAY, AND IF IT'S NOT
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:52.000
  • YOU JUST KEEP STANDING.
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:55.170
  • SOMEBODY ASKED, "ARE YOU STILL
  • 00:18:55.170 --> 00:18:57.130
  • BELIEVING TO GET WELL?
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:18:58.280
  • YOU'VE HAD THAT SICKNESS
  • 00:18:58.280 --> 00:19:00.170
  • A LONG TIME.
  • 00:19:00.170 --> 00:19:01.020
  • I SAW THE MEDICAL REPORT.
  • 00:19:01.020 --> 00:19:02.120
  • I'M GOING TO STAND.
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:05.140
  • I'M GOING TO TRUST GOD.
  • 00:19:05.140 --> 00:19:06.290
  • I'M GOING TO THANK HIM THAT
  • 00:19:06.290 --> 00:19:08.150
  • HEALING IS COMING.
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:09.090
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP DECLARING THAT
  • 00:19:09.090 --> 00:19:11.150
  • I'M HEALTHY, WHOLE, AND STRONG.
  • 00:19:11.150 --> 00:19:13.110
  • "WELL, HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING
  • 00:19:13.110 --> 00:19:14.230
  • TO STAND?"
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:15.080
  • WHAT GOD PROMISED ME COME
  • 00:19:17.170 --> 00:19:19.030
  • TO PASS.
  • 00:19:19.030 --> 00:19:20.180
  • GOD IS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:23.150
  • HAVE STUBBORN FAITH.
  • 00:19:23.150 --> 00:19:24.290
  • ANYBODY CAN GET DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:19:24.290 --> 00:19:26.250
  • ANYBODY CAN GIVE UP AND SAY,
  • 00:19:26.250 --> 00:19:28.270
  • "PHARAOH SAID NO."
  • 00:19:28.270 --> 00:19:29.280
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO REACH YOUR
  • 00:19:29.280 --> 00:19:31.120
  • DESTINY, YOU HAVE TO MAKE
  • 00:19:31.120 --> 00:19:32.180
  • UP YOUR MIND, YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:34.000
  • TO STAND NO MATTER WHAT COMES
  • 00:19:34.000 --> 00:19:35.220
  • AGAINST YOU, AND NO MATTER HOW
  • 00:19:35.220 --> 00:19:37.220
  • LONG IT TAKES.
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:38.230
  • BETRAYALS, SHIPWRECKS, BEATINGS,
  • 00:19:41.240 --> 00:19:43.270
  • BEING LIED ABOUT.
  • 00:19:43.270 --> 00:19:45.140
  • HE HAD PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES
  • 00:19:45.140 --> 00:19:47.120
  • TO GET STUCK.
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:48.170
  • HE COULD'VE SAID,
  • 00:19:48.170 --> 00:19:49.160
  • "GOD, IT'S NOT FAIR.
  • 00:19:49.160 --> 00:19:50.170
  • ALL THESE THINGS HAVE COME
  • 00:19:50.170 --> 00:19:52.030
  • AGAINST ME."
  • 00:19:52.030 --> 00:19:52.220
  • INSTEAD, HE HAD STUBBORN FAITH.
  • 00:19:52.220 --> 00:19:55.180
  • HE SAID IN ACTS 20, "NONE
  • 00:19:55.180 --> 00:19:57.240
  • OF THESE THINGS MOVE ME."
  • 00:19:57.240 --> 00:19:59.190
  • HE WAS SAYING, "I'M NOT MOVED
  • 00:19:59.190 --> 00:20:01.140
  • BY THE OPPOSITION."
  • 00:20:01.140 --> 00:20:02.120
  • WAS, BY HOW LONG IT WAS TAKING.
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:06.120
  • HE JUST KEPT STANDING.
  • 00:20:06.120 --> 00:20:08.090
  • HE WENT ON TO WRITE OVER HALF
  • 00:20:08.090 --> 00:20:10.000
  • OF THE BOOKS IN
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:11.080
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:20:11.080 --> 00:20:13.000
  • WE NEED TO GET TO THE PLACE
  • 00:20:13.000 --> 00:20:14.190
  • WHERE WE CAN SAY LIKE PAUL,
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:16.020
  • "NONE OF THESE THINGS MOVE ME."
  • 00:20:16.020 --> 00:20:18.090
  • NOT MOVED BY THE ECONOMY, NOT
  • 00:20:18.090 --> 00:20:20.060
  • MOVED BY WHAT'S NOT WORKING OUT.
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:22.050
  • I HAVE A MADE UP MIND.
  • 00:20:22.050 --> 00:20:23.280
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP STANDING, KEEP
  • 00:20:23.280 --> 00:20:26.140
  • BELIEVING, KEEP TRUSTING.
  • 00:20:26.140 --> 00:20:27.220
  • I'M GOING TO OUTLAST WHAT'S
  • 00:20:27.220 --> 00:20:29.110
  • TRYING TO STOP ME, AND THIS IS
  • 00:20:29.110 --> 00:20:31.210
  • ONE TIME, WHERE IT'S GOOD
  • 00:20:31.210 --> 00:20:33.190
  • TO BE STUBBORN.
  • 00:20:33.190 --> 00:20:34.070
  • YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE TALKED
  • 00:20:34.070 --> 00:20:35.200
  • OUT OF WHAT GOD PUT
  • 00:20:35.200 --> 00:20:36.250
  • I WAS AT THE BEACH ONE TIME WHEN
  • 00:20:38.140 --> 00:20:40.170
  • OUR CHILDREN WERE SMALL.
  • 00:20:40.170 --> 00:20:41.200
  • ALEXANDRA WAS THREE AND JONATHAN
  • 00:20:41.200 --> 00:20:43.110
  • WAS SIX, AND WE WERE HAVING
  • 00:20:43.110 --> 00:20:45.130
  • A FUN TIME MAKING CASTLES
  • 00:20:45.130 --> 00:20:47.050
  • IN THE SAND WHEN THIS LITTLE
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:49.090
  • YELLOW BUMBLEBEE CAME AND LANDED
  • 00:20:49.090 --> 00:20:51.130
  • RIGHT BESIDE US.
  • 00:20:51.130 --> 00:20:52.210
  • WELL, ALEXANDRA SCREAMED
  • 00:20:52.210 --> 00:20:53.170
  • AND TOOK OFF RUNNING, AND I JUST
  • 00:20:53.170 --> 00:20:55.170
  • SWATTED HIM OUT OF THE WAY,
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:57.040
  • AND WE WENT BACK TO PLAYING.
  • 00:20:57.040 --> 00:20:58.230
  • THIRTY SECONDS LATER, HE WAS
  • 00:20:58.230 --> 00:21:00.240
  • RIGHT BACK, FLYING ALL
  • 00:21:00.240 --> 00:21:02.120
  • AROUND US, AND THE KIDS STARTED
  • 00:21:02.120 --> 00:21:04.140
  • SCREAMING.
  • 00:21:04.140 --> 00:21:04.270
  • I GOT MY TOWEL AND I SWATTED HIM
  • 00:21:04.270 --> 00:21:07.010
  • DOWN TO THE GROUND.
  • 00:21:07.010 --> 00:21:08.050
  • I THOUGHT I SHOWED HIM
  • 00:21:08.050 --> 00:21:09.280
  • WHO'S BOSS.
  • 00:21:09.280 --> 00:21:10.160
  • A MINUTE LATER, THERE HE WAS
  • 00:21:10.160 --> 00:21:12.180
  • AGAIN, AND JUST BUZZING ALL
  • 00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:14.100
  • AROUND ANNOYING US.
  • 00:21:14.100 --> 00:21:15.250
  • THIS TIME, I NOT ONLY SWATTED
  • 00:21:15.250 --> 00:21:17.140
  • HIM TO THE GROUND, BUT I GOT MY
  • 00:21:17.140 --> 00:21:19.200
  • TENNIS SHOES AND I SQUASHED HIM
  • 00:21:19.200 --> 00:21:21.180
  • INTO THE SAND AS HARD AS I
  • 00:21:21.180 --> 00:21:23.270
  • COULD.
  • 00:21:23.270 --> 00:21:25.040
  • I THOUGHT I'M TIRED OF DEALING
  • 00:21:25.040 --> 00:21:26.020
  • WITH HIM.
  • 00:21:26.020 --> 00:21:26.200
  • A COUPLE OF MINUTES LATER, I
  • 00:21:26.200 --> 00:21:28.120
  • LOOKED OVER JUST TO MAKE SURE HE
  • 00:21:28.120 --> 00:21:30.130
  • WAS STILL DEAD.
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:31.220
  • I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:33.000
  • I SAW ONE WING BARELY START
  • 00:21:33.000 --> 00:21:35.130
  • TO MOVE.
  • 00:21:35.130 --> 00:21:36.070
  • THEN ANOTHER WING CAME
  • 00:21:36.070 --> 00:21:37.180
  • UP OUT OF THE SAND.
  • 00:21:37.180 --> 00:21:39.100
  • HE WALKED AROUND FOR A FEW
  • 00:21:39.100 --> 00:21:41.030
  • I WAS AMAZED NOT ONLY THAT HE
  • 00:21:43.050 --> 00:21:45.030
  • WAS STILL ALIVE, BUT THAT HE
  • 00:21:45.030 --> 00:21:46.240
  • COULD GET BACK UP AGAIN.
  • 00:21:46.240 --> 00:21:48.200
  • ABOUT THAT TIME, HE TOOK
  • 00:21:48.200 --> 00:21:50.040
  • OFF FLYING IN THE AIR AWAY
  • 00:21:50.040 --> 00:21:51.280
  • FROM ME, AND JUST WHEN I THOUGHT
  • 00:21:51.280 --> 00:21:53.210
  • I WAS DONE WITH HIM, HE TURNED
  • 00:21:53.210 --> 00:21:55.150
  • AROUND AND HEADED RIGHT BACK
  • 00:21:55.150 --> 00:21:57.100
  • TOWARD US.
  • 00:21:57.100 --> 00:21:58.020
  • I THOUGHT YOU'VE GOTTA BE
  • 00:21:58.020 --> 00:21:58.270
  • KIDDING.
  • 00:21:58.270 --> 00:21:59.110
  • "I'LL BE BACK."
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:03.000
  • HE CAME AND BUZZED BY MY HEAD
  • 00:22:03.000 --> 00:22:04.170
  • LIKE FOUR OR FIVE TIMES.
  • 00:22:04.170 --> 00:22:05.220
  • I HAD TO DODGE TO GET
  • 00:22:05.220 --> 00:22:07.090
  • OUT OF THE WAY.
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:08.100
  • ALEXANDRA SAID, "DADDY, GET
  • 00:22:08.100 --> 00:22:09.240
  • THE TOWEL."
  • 00:22:09.240 --> 00:22:10.160
  • I SAID, "NO, ALEXANDRA, THIS BEE
  • 00:22:10.160 --> 00:22:13.160
  • DESERVES TO LIVE."
  • 00:22:13.160 --> 00:22:15.010
  • I'M, A THOUSAND TIMES BIGGER
  • 00:22:15.010 --> 00:22:16.100
  • THAN HIM, AND I STILL CAN'T
  • 00:22:16.100 --> 00:22:18.050
  • KILL HIM.
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:19.160
  • DOWN, STEP ON YOUR DREAMS,
  • 00:22:21.140 --> 00:22:23.100
  • SQUASH YOUR HEALTH, YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:22:23.100 --> 00:22:24.210
  • TO DO LIKE THAT LITTLE BUMBLE
  • 00:22:24.210 --> 00:22:26.100
  • OUTLAST WHAT'S TRYING
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:30.260
  • TO DEFEAT YOU.
  • 00:22:30.260 --> 00:22:32.110
  • THE POWER IN YOU IS GREATER THAN
  • 00:22:32.110 --> 00:22:34.220
  • ANY POWER THAT'S TRYING TO STOP
  • 00:22:34.220 --> 00:22:36.220
  • YOU.
  • 00:22:36.220 --> 00:22:37.290
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, A GOOD
  • 00:22:37.290 --> 00:22:39.120
  • PERSON FALLS SEVEN TIMES,
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:40.180
  • BUT GETS BACK UP AGAIN.
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:42.190
  • YOU HAVE COME BACK POWER.
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:44.270
  • GOD WOULDN'T HAVE ALLOWED
  • 00:22:44.270 --> 00:22:46.020
  • THE ADVERSITY IF IT WAS GOING

  • IT'S JUST ANOTHER STEP
  • 00:22:49.040 --> 00:22:50.140

  • 00:22:50.140 --> 00:22:52.150
  • WE SEE THIS WITH JOSEPH.
  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:53.290
  • THROWN INTO A PIT, SOLD
  • 00:22:55.290 --> 00:22:57.160
  • INTO SLAVERY, PUT IN PRISON,
  • 00:22:57.160 --> 00:22:59.220
  • FALSELY ACCUSED.
  • 00:22:59.220 --> 00:23:00.210
  • IT WAS ONE BAD BREAK
  • 00:23:00.210 --> 00:23:02.190
  • AFTER ANOTHER, 13 YEARS
  • 00:23:02.190 --> 00:23:04.050
  • OF INJUSTICE, DISAPPOINTMENTS.
  • 00:23:04.050 --> 00:23:06.080
  • SURELY, HE WOULD BE BITTER,
  • 00:23:06.080 --> 00:23:08.030
  • DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:23:08.030 --> 00:23:08.180
  • NO, JOSEPH UNDERSTOOD.
  • 00:23:08.180 --> 00:23:10.080
  • HE JUST KEPT STANDING, KEPT
  • 00:23:10.080 --> 00:23:11.280
  • DAY, WHILE HE WAS IN PRISON
  • 00:23:14.030 --> 00:23:15.230
  • FOR SOMETHING THAT HE DIDN'T DO,
  • 00:23:15.230 --> 00:23:17.160
  • THE GUARDS CAME AND SAID
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:19.000
  • THE PHARAOH WANTED TO SEE HIM,
  • 00:23:19.000 --> 00:23:20.230
  • THE LEADER OF THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:23:20.230 --> 00:23:22.120
  • JOSEPH DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:23:22.120 --> 00:23:23.100
  • AN APPOINTMENT WITH HIM.
  • 00:23:23.100 --> 00:23:24.180
  • HE HAD NEVER MET THE MAN,
  • 00:23:24.180 --> 00:23:26.020
  • BUT WHEN IT'S YOUR TIME TO BE
  • 00:23:26.020 --> 00:23:27.250
  • PROMOTED, ALL THE FORCES
  • 00:23:27.250 --> 00:23:29.070

  • 00:23:30.170 --> 00:23:32.080
  • WHEN YOU PASS THE TEST
  • 00:23:32.080 --> 00:23:34.050
  • OF OUTLASTING THE OPPOSITION,
  • 00:23:34.050 --> 00:23:35.210
  • THE PROMOTION WILL COME LOOKING
  • 00:23:35.210 --> 00:23:37.060

  • 00:23:41.100 --> 00:23:42.030
  • JOSEPH WENT AND INTERPRETED
  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:43.090
  • THE DREAM FOR THE PHARAOH.
  • 00:23:43.090 --> 00:23:44.250
  • HE WAS SO IMPRESSED, HE MADE
  • 00:23:44.250 --> 00:23:46.250
  • JOSEPH THE PRIME MINISTER
  • 00:23:46.250 --> 00:23:48.050
  • OF EGYPT.
  • 00:23:48.050 --> 00:23:49.170
  • WHEN WE STUDY JOSEPH'S LIFE, WE
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:51.270
  • REALIZE, GOD WASN'T ASKING HIM
  • 00:23:51.270 --> 00:23:53.260
  • TO DEFEAT HIS BROTHERS,
  • 00:23:53.260 --> 00:23:55.120
  • OUT OF THE PIT, TO ESCAPE
  • 00:23:57.090 --> 00:23:59.130
  • CAPTIVITY, GOD WAS SIMPLY ASKING
  • 00:23:59.130 --> 00:24:01.120
  • HIM TO OUTLAST THE OPPOSITION,
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:03.160
  • THAT ALL HAD TO HAPPEN FOR HIM
  • 00:24:03.160 --> 00:24:06.150
  • TO BECOME THE PRIME MINISTER.

  • CHANGING, GOD IS NOT ASKING YOU
  • 00:24:13.130 --> 00:24:15.060
  • TO OVERCOME THEM.
  • 00:24:15.060 --> 00:24:16.190
  • HE'S JUST ASKING YOU
  • 00:24:16.190 --> 00:24:18.210
  • TO OUTLAST THEM.
  • 00:24:18.210 --> 00:24:19.170
  • IT'S ALL A PART OF HIS PLAN,
  • 00:24:19.170 --> 00:24:21.150
  • IT'S NECESSARY TO GET YOU
  • 00:24:21.150 --> 00:24:22.270
  • TO YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:24:22.270 --> 00:24:24.070
  • AND YES, THE PHARAOHS CAN BE

  • HE HAS YOU IN THE PALM OF HIS
  • 00:24:32.140 --> 00:24:34.080
  • HAND, WHAT HE PROMISED YOU IS
  • 00:24:34.080 --> 00:24:35.200
