  • BUT THANKS FOR TUNING IN.

  • THANK YOU AGAIN FOR COMING OUT
  • 00:00:26.020 --> 00:00:27.130
  • TODAY.
  • 00:00:27.130 --> 00:00:28.130
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:28.130 --> 00:00:29.130
  • FUNNY. I HEARD ABOUT THESE
  • 00:00:29.130 --> 00:00:30.160
  • THREE PEOPLE: A RUSSIAN, AN
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:32.010
  • AMERICAN AND A BLONDE.
  • 00:00:32.010 --> 00:00:34.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:00:34.260 --> 00:00:35.270
  • THEY WERE TALKING ONE DAY.
  • 00:00:35.270 --> 00:00:36.290
  • THE RUSSIAN PROUDLY SAID, "WE
  • 00:00:36.290 --> 00:00:38.080
  • WERE THE FIRST ONES IN SPACE."
  • 00:00:38.080 --> 00:00:40.120
  • THE AMERICAN SAID, "WELL, WE
  • 00:00:40.120 --> 00:00:42.080
  • WERE THE FIRST ONES ON THE
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:43.070
  • MOON."
  • 00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:45.000
  • THE BLONDE SAID, "THAT'S
  • 00:00:45.000 --> 00:00:46.010
  • NOTHING. WE'RE GOING TO BE THE
  • 00:00:46.010 --> 00:00:46.230
  • FIRST ONES ON THE SUN."
  • 00:00:46.230 --> 00:00:48.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:00:48.170 --> 00:00:49.270
  • THE RUSSIAN, THE AMERICAN,
  • 00:00:49.270 --> 00:00:50.230
  • THEY LAUGHED. THEY SAID, "WHAT
  • 00:00:50.230 --> 00:00:51.260
  • ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? YOU
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:53.000
  • CAN'T GO TO THE SUN. IT'S TOO
  • 00:00:53.000 --> 00:00:53.290
  • HOT. YOU WOULD BURN UP."
  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:55.210
  • THE BLONDE SAID, "WE'RE NOT THAT
  • 00:00:55.210 --> 00:00:56.240
  • DUMB. WE'RE GOING TO GO AT
  • 00:00:56.240 --> 00:00:57.240
  • NIGHT." (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:02.030
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLE.
  • 00:01:02.030 --> 00:01:02.290
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:01:02.290 --> 00:01:03.230
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:01:03.230 --> 00:01:04.240
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:04.240 --> 00:01:05.270
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:05.270 --> 00:01:07.160
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:07.160 --> 00:01:09.290
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:09.290 --> 00:01:11.090
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:11.090 --> 00:01:12.140
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS:
  • 00:01:12.140 --> 00:01:13.200
  • MY MIND IS ALERT.
  • 00:01:13.200 --> 00:01:15.030
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:16.290
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 00:01:16.290 --> 00:01:18.160
  • IN JESUS' NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:22.120
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:23.050
  • ABOUT HOW YES IS IN YOUR
  • 00:01:23.050 --> 00:01:24.230
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:26.110
  • WHEN GOD LAID OUT THE PLAN FOR
  • 00:01:26.110 --> 00:01:27.190
  • YOUR LIFE HE LINED UP THE RIGHT
  • 00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:29.140
  • PEOPLE, THE RIGHT BREAKS, THE
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:31.210
  • RIGHT OPEN DOORS.
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:33.200
  • HE ALREADY HAS YOUR YESSES
  • 00:01:33.200 --> 00:01:35.060
  • PLANNED OUT.
  • 00:01:35.060 --> 00:01:37.000
  • YES, TO THAT PROMOTION.
  • 00:01:37.000 --> 00:01:38.150
  • YES, TO THAT CLEAN BILL OF
  • 00:01:38.150 --> 00:01:39.280
  • HEALTH.
  • 00:01:39.280 --> 00:01:41.010
  • YES, YOU WILL GET MARRIED.
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:42.260
  • YES, YOU ARE ACCEPTED INTO THAT
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:43.250
  • COLLEGE.
  • 00:01:43.250 --> 00:01:46.030
  • YOU MAY HAVE BEEN TOLD NO A
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:47.130
  • THOUSAND TIMES BUT GOD HAS THE
  • 00:01:47.130 --> 00:01:49.000
  • FINAL SAY AND HE SAYS, "YES IS
  • 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:51.030
  • COMING YOUR WAY."
  • 00:01:51.030 --> 00:01:53.170
  • YES, YOU WILL ACCOMPLISH YOUR
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:54.210
  • DREAMS.
  • 00:01:54.210 --> 00:01:56.010
  • YES, YOU WILL OVERCOME THAT
  • 00:01:56.010 --> 00:01:57.010
  • ADDICTION.
  • 00:01:57.010 --> 00:01:58.210
  • YES, YOUR CHILDREN WILL FULFILL
  • 00:01:58.210 --> 00:02:00.260
  • THEIR DESTINY.
  • 00:02:00.260 --> 00:02:02.010
  • YESSES ARE IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:02:02.010 --> 00:02:03.250
  • NOW HERE'S THE KEY; ON THE WAY
  • 00:02:03.250 --> 00:02:05.120
  • TO YOUR YES THERE WILL BE NO'S.
  • 00:02:05.160 --> 00:02:08.160
  • YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE NO'S
  • 00:02:08.160 --> 00:02:10.210
  • TO GET TO YOUR YESSES.
  • 00:02:10.210 --> 00:02:13.050
  • THE MISTAKE MANY PEOPLE MAKE IS
  • 00:02:13.050 --> 00:02:14.100
  • THEY GET DISCOURAGED BY THE NO'S
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:16.130
  • AND THEY QUIT TRYING.
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:18.220
  • THEY WORKED HARD BUT DIDN'T GET
  • 00:02:18.220 --> 00:02:20.000
  • THE PROMOTION.
  • 00:02:20.000 --> 00:02:21.040
  • THEY PRAYED AND BELIEVED BUT
  • 00:02:21.040 --> 00:02:22.270
  • DIDN'T QUALIFY FOR THE NEW HOME.
  • 00:02:22.270 --> 00:02:24.290
  • THEY PUT TIME AND ENERGY INTO A
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:26.100
  • RELATIONSHIP BUT IT DIDN'T WORK
  • 00:02:26.100 --> 00:02:28.080
  • OUT. NOW THEY THINK IT'S NEVER
  • 00:02:28.080 --> 00:02:29.220
  • GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:32.150
  • NO, YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH YOUR
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:33.240
  • CLOSED DOORS BEFORE YOU GET TO
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:35.050
  • YOUR OPEN DOORS.
  • 00:02:35.050 --> 00:02:37.250
  • WHEN YOU COME TO A NO, INSTEAD
  • 00:02:37.250 --> 00:02:39.040
  • OF BEING DISCOURAGED THE RIGHT
  • 00:02:39.040 --> 00:02:40.290
  • ATTITUDE IS, "I'M ONE STEP
  • 00:02:40.290 --> 00:02:42.190
  • CLOSER TO MY YES."
  • 00:02:42.190 --> 00:02:45.030
  • WHAT IF YOU COULD SEE INTO YOUR
  • 00:02:45.030 --> 00:02:46.080
  • FUTURE AND YOU KNEW YOU HAD TO
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:47.260
  • GO THROUGH 20 NO'S BEFORE YOU
  • 00:02:47.260 --> 00:02:49.260
  • CAME TO YOUR YES? THEN WHEN YOU
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:52.100
  • FACED A DISAPPOINTMENT,
  • 00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:54.110
  • A SETBACK, THE LOAN DIDN'T GO
  • 00:02:54.110 --> 00:02:55.210
  • THROUGH, YOU DIDN'T GET THAT
  • 00:02:55.210 --> 00:02:56.280
  • BIG SALES CONTRACT.
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:59.090
  • IF YOU KNEW YOUR YES WAS ONLY 20
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:01.250
  • NO'S AWAY YOU WOULDN'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:03:01.280 --> 00:03:04.280
  • YOU WOULD JUST CHECK IT OFF AND
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:05.290
  • SAY, "ALL RIGHT. THAT'S ONE NO
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:07.050
  • OUT OF THE WAY. NOW I'M ONLY
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:08.230
  • NINETEEN AWAY FROM MY YES."
  • 00:03:08.230 --> 00:03:11.030
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:12.120
  • RATHER THAN BEING DISCOURAGED
  • 00:03:12.120 --> 00:03:13.100
  • YOU WOULD BE ENCOURAGED.
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:15.030
  • BUT TOO MANY PEOPLE, BECAUSE
  • 00:03:15.030 --> 00:03:16.100
  • THEY'VE HIT SEVERAL NO'S IN A
  • 00:03:16.100 --> 00:03:18.170
  • ROW, THEY'VE LOST THEIR PASSION.
  • 00:03:18.170 --> 00:03:20.220
  • THEY'VE LOST THEIR FIRE.
  • 00:03:20.220 --> 00:03:22.030
  • YOU'VE GOT TO GET THIS DOWN IN
  • 00:03:22.030 --> 00:03:23.080
  • YOUR SPIRIT. YES IS IN YOUR
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:24.120
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:03:24.120 --> 00:03:26.060
  • YOU MAY HAVE BEEN TURNED DOWN,
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:27.210
  • DELAYED, OVERLOOKED. THAT WAS
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:29.240
  • ALL A PART OF GOD'S PLAN. THE
  • 00:03:29.240 --> 00:03:32.030
  • NO IS SIMPLY A TEST. ARE YOU
  • 00:03:32.030 --> 00:03:34.230
  • GOING TO GET DISCOURAGED AND
  • 00:03:34.230 --> 00:03:36.180
  • SETTLE WHERE YOU ARE OR ARE YOU
  • 00:03:36.180 --> 00:03:38.100
  • GOING TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:39.260
  • KNOWING THAT YESSES ARE COMING
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:41.100
  • YOUR WAY?
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:43.060
  • I HAD A MAN TELL HOW HIS
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:44.130
  • SUPERVISOR WAS ABOUT TO RETIRE.
  • 00:03:44.130 --> 00:03:46.290
  • HE AND TWO OTHER PEOPLE WERE IN
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:48.060
  • LINE FOR HIS POSITION. HE HAD
  • 00:03:48.060 --> 00:03:49.290
  • THE MOST SENIORITY. HE HAD
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.210
  • WORKED FOR THE COMPANY
  • 00:03:51.210 --> 00:03:53.070
  • FAITHFULLY FOR MANY YEARS.
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:54.280
  • BUT HE GOT PASSED OVER FOR THE
  • 00:03:54.280 --> 00:03:56.140
  • PROMOTION. THEY CHOSE A
  • 00:03:56.140 --> 00:03:57.220
  • YOUNGER, LESS EXPERIENCED
  • 00:03:57.220 --> 00:03:59.090
  • PERSON. HE FELT CHEATED.
  • 00:03:59.090 --> 00:04:01.190
  • DIDN'T SEEM FAIR BUT HE
  • 00:04:01.190 --> 00:04:03.020
  • UNDERSTOOD THIS PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:04:03.020 --> 00:04:05.060
  • HE KNEW THERE WERE ALREADY
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:06.240
  • YESSES IN HIS FUTURE PUT THERE
  • 00:04:06.240 --> 00:04:09.050
  • BY THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:04:09.050 --> 00:04:11.190
  • HE DIDN'T GET BITTER. HE DIDN'T
  • 00:04:11.190 --> 00:04:12.280
  • QUIT BEING HIS BEST. HE SHOOK
  • 00:04:12.280 --> 00:04:15.020
  • IT OFF AND KEPT WORKING UNTO
  • 00:04:15.020 --> 00:04:16.060
  • GOD.
  • 00:04:16.060 --> 00:04:18.010
  • ABOUT TWO YEARS LATER THE VICE
  • 00:04:18.010 --> 00:04:19.140
  • PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY RETIRED
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:21.170
  • AND THEY OFFERED HIM HIS JOB.
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:24.120
  • HIS POSITION NOW IS MANY LEVELS
  • 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:26.030
  • HIGHER THAN THAT OLD SUPERVISOR
  • 00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:28.010
  • POSITION.
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:29.130
  • FRIENDS, GOD KNOWS WHAT HE IS
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:30.050
  • DOING.
  • 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:31.160
  • YOU MAY BE IN A NO RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:04:31.160 --> 00:04:33.250
  • THE RELATIONSHIP ENDED. YOU GOT
  • 00:04:33.250 --> 00:04:35.280
  • PASSED OVER FOR THE PROMOTION.
  • 00:04:35.280 --> 00:04:38.060
  • YOU LOST A LOVED ONE.
  • 00:04:38.060 --> 00:04:40.050
  • YOU'VE GOT TO DIG YOUR HEELS IN
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:41.210
  • AND SAY, "I MAY BE IN A NO BUT
  • 00:04:41.210 --> 00:04:43.160
  • I'M NOT GOING TO GET
  • 00:04:43.160 --> 00:04:44.210
  • DISCOURAGED. I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:04:44.210 --> 00:04:45.230
  • GIVE UP ON MY DREAM. I KNOW A
  • 00:04:45.230 --> 00:04:47.090
  • YES IS COMING. FAVOR IS COMING.
  • 00:04:48.070 --> 00:04:51.070
  • HEALING IS COMING. PROMOTION
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:52.180
  • IS COMING. I AM NOT GOING TO
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:54.020
  • GET STUCK IN A NO.
  • 00:04:54.020 --> 00:04:56.150
  • I KNOW YESSES ARE IN MY FUTURE."
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:59.150
  • THAT'S WHAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS,
  • 00:04:59.150 --> 00:05:00.280
  • "ALL OF GOD'S PROMISES ARE YES
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:02.200
  • AND AMEN."
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:04.230
  • WE SHOULD GET UP EVERY MORNING
  • 00:05:04.230 --> 00:05:06.000
  • AND SAY, "FATHER, THANK YOU FOR
  • 00:05:06.000 --> 00:05:07.230
  • SOME YESSES TODAY. YES, I'M
  • 00:05:07.230 --> 00:05:09.110
  • HEALED. YES, I'M FREE. YES, I'M
  • 00:05:09.110 --> 00:05:11.160
  • SURROUNDED BY YOUR FAVOR."
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:14.030
  • I READ A STATISTIC. 90% OF ALL
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:17.040
  • FIRST TIME BUSINESSES FAIL.
  • 00:05:17.090 --> 00:05:20.090
  • 90% OF ALL SECOND TIME
  • 00:05:20.090 --> 00:05:21.230
  • BUSINESSES SUCCEED. BUT 80% OF
  • 00:05:21.230 --> 00:05:24.110
  • PEOPLE NEVER TRY A SECOND TIME.
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:29.020
  • WHAT HAPPENED? THEY GET STUCK
  • 00:05:29.020 --> 00:05:30.060
  • ON A NO. THEY GOT DISCOURAGED
  • 00:05:30.060 --> 00:05:32.230
  • AND THOUGHT, "WELL, IT DIDN'T
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:34.030
  • HAPPEN LAST TIME. IT'S NEVER
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:35.050
  • GOING TO HAPPEN."
  • 00:05:35.050 --> 00:05:36.170
  • THEY FAIL TO REALIZE THEY WERE
  • 00:05:36.170 --> 00:05:38.180
  • ONE NO AWAY FROM SEEING IT
  • 00:05:38.180 --> 00:05:40.240
  • SUCCEED.
  • 00:05:40.240 --> 00:05:41.290
  • I WONDER HOW MANY OF US GIVE UP
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:43.060
  • A FEW NO'S AWAY FROM SEEING A
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:45.290
  • DREAM COME TO PASS. WHAT IF YOU
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:47.230
  • KNEW YOU ONLY HAD TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:05:47.230 --> 00:05:49.110
  • THREE MORE NO'S AND THEN YOU
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:51.170
  • WOULD MEET THE RIGHT PERSON?
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:54.140
  • YOU WOULD PROBABLY GO OUT AND
  • 00:05:54.140 --> 00:05:55.160
  • FIND PEOPLE TO MEET JUST TO TELL
  • 00:05:55.160 --> 00:05:56.250
  • THEM NO. GET THEM OUT OF THE
  • 00:05:56.250 --> 00:05:58.110
  • WAY. (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:05:58.110 --> 00:06:00.240
  • I HAVE A FRIEND THAT WANTED TO
  • 00:06:00.240 --> 00:06:01.210
  • START A NEW BUSINESS. AND IT
  • 00:06:01.210 --> 00:06:03.020
  • HAD WORKED. NOW HE NEEDED A
  • 00:06:03.020 --> 00:06:05.220
  • BANK TO GET BEHIND HIM, LOAN
  • 00:06:05.260 --> 00:06:08.260
  • HIM THE MONEY TO BUY SOME MA JOR
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:09.280
  • EQUIPMENT SO HE COULD REALLY
  • 00:06:09.280 --> 00:06:11.020
  • GET IT OFF THE GROUND.
  • 00:06:11.020 --> 00:06:12.170
  • HE WENT TO THE BANK THAT HE HAD
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:13.180
  • USED FOR MANY YEARS AND EVERYONE
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:14.240
  • KNEW HIM. THEY LOVED HIS
  • 00:06:14.240 --> 00:06:16.050
  • BUSINESS PLAN. HE HAD PROVEN
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:18.050
  • RESULTS ON THAT SMALL SCALE BUT
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:20.250
  • MONEY WAS VERY TIGHT. THEY
  • 00:06:20.250 --> 00:06:22.210
  • TURNED HIM DOWN. THE FIRST NO.
  • 00:06:22.210 --> 00:06:24.150
  • HE COULD HAVE GOTTEN DISCOURAGED
  • 00:06:24.150 --> 00:06:26.280
  • AND GIVEN UP BUT HE WENT TO
  • 00:06:26.280 --> 00:06:28.020
  • ANOTHER BANK. THE SECOND BANK
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:29.210
  • TOLD HIM THE SAME THING.
  • 00:06:29.210 --> 00:06:31.200
  • "IT'S A GREAT IDEA. IT'S JUST
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:32.170
  • NOT FOR US."
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:34.000
  • TEN BANKS TURNED HIM DOWN.
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:35.130
  • TWENTY BANKS SAID NO.
  • 00:06:35.130 --> 00:06:37.010
  • THIRTY BANKS SAID NO.
  • 00:06:37.010 --> 00:06:39.000
  • YOU WOULD THINK HE WOULD GET THE
  • 00:06:39.000 --> 00:06:40.020
  • MESSAGE. "MAN, THIS IS NOT
  • 00:06:40.020 --> 00:06:41.090
  • GOING TO WORK. YOU'RE WASTING
  • 00:06:41.090 --> 00:06:42.110
  • YOUR TIME."
  • 00:06:42.160 --> 00:06:45.160
  • NO, WHEN GOD PUTS A DREAM IN
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:46.140
  • YOUR HEART, WHEN HE GIVES A
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:47.140
  • PROMISE ON THE INSIDE AND DEEP
  • 00:06:47.140 --> 00:06:48.170
  • DOWN YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.030
  • YOU'RE GOING TO SUCCEED.
  • 00:06:50.030 --> 00:06:51.230
  • YOU KNOW YOUR FAMILY IS GOING TO
  • 00:06:51.230 --> 00:06:53.150
  • BE RESTORED. YOU KNOW YOU'RE
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:54.200
  • GOING TO GET WELL. THEN LIKE
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:56.050
  • THIS MAN, YOU REALIZE EVERY NO
  • 00:06:56.050 --> 00:06:58.060
  • SIMPLY MEANS YOU'RE ONE STEP
  • 00:06:58.060 --> 00:07:00.150
  • CLOSER TO YOUR YES.
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:02.160
  • THIRTY-ONE BANKS SAID NO.
  • 00:07:02.160 --> 00:07:04.120
  • THIRTY-ONE BANKS SAID, "YOU'RE
  • 00:07:04.120 --> 00:07:05.080
  • NOT FOR US."
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:06.250
  • BUT BANK NUMBER 32 CAME ALONG
  • 00:07:06.250 --> 00:07:09.010
  • AND SAID, "WE REALLY LIKE IT.
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:10.110
  • WE'LL TAKE A CHANCE. YES, WE
  • 00:07:10.110 --> 00:07:11.290
  • WILL DO IT." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.090
  • GOD HAD HIS YES BUT HE HAD TO
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:15.230
  • GO THROUGH 31 NO'S TO GET TO
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:18.040
  • IT.
  • 00:07:18.040 --> 00:07:19.170
  • YOU DON'T KNOW, YOU MAY ONLY BE
  • 00:07:19.170 --> 00:07:21.050
  • FIVE NO'S AWAY FROM YOUR YES.
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:24.030
  • OR WHO KNOWS, MAYBE THE NEXT
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:25.270
  • PERSON YOU MEET WILL BE YOUR
  • 00:07:25.270 --> 00:07:27.280
  • YES.
  • 00:07:27.280 --> 00:07:29.010
  • THE NEXT COLLEGE YOU APPLY TO
  • 00:07:29.010 --> 00:07:30.080
  • WILL BE YOUR YES.
  • 00:07:30.080 --> 00:07:31.210
  • THE NEXT TIME YOU RESIST THE
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:33.220
  • TEMPTATION YOU'LL BREAK THE BAD
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:34.220
  • HABIT. IT WILL BE YOUR YES.
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:36.250
  • IT WAS ONE CITY COUNCILMEMBER
  • 00:07:36.250 --> 00:07:39.090
  • THAT VOTED FOR US THAT GAVE US
  • 00:07:39.090 --> 00:07:40.180
  • THIS BEAUTIFUL FACILITY.
  • 00:07:40.180 --> 00:07:42.150
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:42.150 --> 00:07:44.010
  • JUST ONE PUSHED US OVER THE
  • 00:07:44.010 --> 00:07:45.000
  • EDGE. WE HAD TO GO THROUGH A
  • 00:07:45.000 --> 00:07:46.170
  • LOT OF NO'S TO GET TO THAT YES
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:47.210
  • THAT WE NEEDED.
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:50.040
  • YOU COULD BE ONE YES AWAY FROM
  • 00:07:50.040 --> 00:07:52.250
  • BEING THRUST TO A WHOLE NEW
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:54.130
  • LEVEL. DON'T YOU DARE GET STUCK
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:56.040
  • ON A NO.
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:57.150
  • KEEP BELIEVING. KEEP DREAMING.
  • 00:07:57.150 --> 00:07:59.130
  • KEEP HOPING. KEEP TAKING STEPS
  • 00:07:59.130 --> 00:08:00.230
  • OF FAITH.
  • 00:08:00.230 --> 00:08:02.150
  • I HEARD ZIG ZIGLAR TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:04.110
  • BEING PERSISTENT.
  • 00:08:04.110 --> 00:08:06.050
  • ZIG IS UP IN HIS 80'S AND STILL
  • 00:08:06.070 --> 00:08:09.070
  • A GREAT BLESSING TO MANY PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.140
  • ONE DAY HIS FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:11.260
  • BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER. HE WENT
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:13.070
  • TO THIS HOTEL VERY LATE AT
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:14.200
  • NIGHT AND SAID TO THE YOUNG
  • 00:08:14.200 --> 00:08:15.280
  • LADY, "I NEED A ROOM."
  • 00:08:15.280 --> 00:08:17.150
  • SHE CHECKED AND CHECKED AND DID
  • 00:08:17.150 --> 00:08:18.250
  • ALL THIS RESEARCH BUT SHE SAID,
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:21.000
  • "I'M SO SORRY, SIR. ALL OF OUR
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:22.080
  • ROOMS ARE OCCUPIED OR EITHER

  • RESERVED FOR SOMEBODY COMING
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:26.180
  • TOMORROW." THE FIRST NO.
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:29.050
  • ZIG SAID, "OH, COME ON. I'M A
  • 00:08:29.050 --> 00:08:30.070
  • GOOD CUSTOMER. I STAY AT YOUR
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:31.140
  • HOTELS ALL THE TIME. YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:33.090
  • TO MAKE AN EXCEPTION FOR ME."
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:34.270
  • SHE WENT BACK TO WORK AND TRIED
  • 00:08:34.270 --> 00:08:36.060
  • HER BEST BUT THE SECOND NO.
  • 00:08:36.060 --> 00:08:38.240
  • ZIG ASKED TO SPEAK TO THE
  • 00:08:38.240 --> 00:08:39.290
  • MANAGER. HE CAME OUT AND LOOKED
  • 00:08:39.290 --> 00:08:41.090
  • THROUGH SOME BOOKS AND DID SOME
  • 00:08:41.090 --> 00:08:43.160
  • OTHER THINGS BUT THE THIRD NO.
  • 00:08:43.160 --> 00:08:45.270
  • HE SAID, "I'M SORRY. WE JUST
  • 00:08:45.270 --> 00:08:46.170
  • DON'T HAVE ANY ROOMS."
  • 00:08:46.170 --> 00:08:47.270
  • ZIG THOUGHT ABOUT IT A MOMENT,
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:49.110
  • WENT BACK OVER TO THE MANAGER
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:50.290
  • AND SAID, "LET ME ASK YOU A
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:52.110
  • QUESTION. IF THE PRESIDENT OF
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:54.090
  • THE UNITED STATES SHOWED UP AT
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:55.240
  • THE HOTEL TONIGHT WOULD YOU
  • 00:08:55.240 --> 00:08:57.110
  • HAVE A ROOM FOR HIM?"
  • 00:08:57.110 --> 00:08:59.080
  • THE MANAGER KIND OF LAUGHED AND
  • 00:08:59.080 --> 00:09:00.100
  • SAID, "I'M SURE WE WOULD."
  • 00:09:00.100 --> 00:09:01.170
  • ZIG SAID, "WELL, I'M PRETTY SURE
  • 00:09:01.170 --> 00:09:02.190
  • HE'S NOT COMING. LET ME HAVE
  • 00:09:02.190 --> 00:09:03.190
  • HIS ROOM." (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:09:04.000 --> 00:09:07.000
  • AFTER FOUR NO'S ZIG GOT HIS
  • 00:09:07.000 --> 00:09:07.240
  • YES. STAY PERSISTENT.
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:11.040
  • YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THE BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:12.080
  • ACTRESS JANINE TURNER. SHE'S
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:14.240
  • BEEN IN OUR SERVICES. A VERY
  • 00:09:14.240 --> 00:09:16.040
  • NICE LADY.
  • 00:09:16.040 --> 00:09:17.290
  • SHE TOLD HOW FROM THE TIME SHE
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:19.070
  • WAS A LITTLE GIRL SHE HAD A
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:20.220
  • DREAM OF BECOMING AN ACTRESS.
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:22.240
  • SHE LOVED SINGING AND
  • 00:09:22.240 --> 00:09:23.190
  • PERFORMING, ENTERTAINING.
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:25.270
  • SHE GOT INVOLVED IN MODELING AND
  • 00:09:25.270 --> 00:09:27.060
  • DOING LIMITED ROLES BUT NOTHING
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:28.280
  • LIKE SHE HAD IN HER HEART.
  • 00:09:28.280 --> 00:09:30.250
  • FROM THE TIME SHE WAS FIFTEEN TO
  • 00:09:30.250 --> 00:09:32.080
  • THE AGE OF 27 SHE WENT TO UP TO
  • 00:09:32.080 --> 00:09:34.250
  • FOUR AUDITIONS A DAY, EVERY
  • 00:09:34.250 --> 00:09:37.210
  • WEEK, MONTH AFTER MONTH, EVEN
  • 00:09:37.210 --> 00:09:40.100
  • YEAR AFTER YEAR, WITH NO
  • 00:09:40.100 --> 00:09:41.180
  • SUCCESS. NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL,
  • 00:09:41.180 --> 00:09:43.280
  • JUST LIMITED ROLES, A COMMER-
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:45.070
  • CIAL HERE AND THERE.
  • 00:09:45.070 --> 00:09:47.040
  • SHE CALCULATED DURING THOSE
  • 00:09:47.040 --> 00:09:48.210
  • TWELVE YEARS SHE HAD BEEN TOLD
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:49.290
  • NO OVER 1.000 TIMES.
  • 00:09:49.290 --> 00:09:52.280
  • "YOU'RE NOT WHAT WE'RE LOOKING
  • 00:09:52.280 --> 00:09:54.080
  • FOR. THERE'S NOT A ROLE FOR

  • YOU. THIS IS NOT YOUR

  • STRENGTH."
  • 00:09:56.060 --> 00:09:57.060
  • ALL THIS DISAPPOINTMENT, THIS
  • 00:09:57.060 --> 00:09:58.160
  • REJECTION.
  • 00:09:58.160 --> 00:10:00.050
  • MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN
  • 00:10:00.050 --> 00:10:01.150
  • STUCK ON ONE OF THOSE NO'S BUT
  • 00:10:01.150 --> 00:10:03.220
  • NOT JANINE. HER ATTITUDE WAS,
  • 00:10:03.220 --> 00:10:05.240
  • "THAT'S JUST ANOTHER NO OUT OF
  • 00:10:05.240 --> 00:10:07.080
  • THE WAY. NOW I'M CLOSER TO MY

  • YES."
  • 00:10:08.070 --> 00:10:09.200
  • SHE KEPT PURSUING WHAT GOD
  • 00:10:09.200 --> 00:10:10.270
  • PLACED IN HER HEART. AND ONE
  • 00:10:10.270 --> 00:10:12.140
  • DAY WHEN SHE HAD JUST A FEW
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:14.080
  • DOLLARS TO HER NAME, SHE DIDN'T
  • 00:10:14.080 --> 00:10:16.020
  • KNOW WHAT SHE WAS GOING TO DO
  • 00:10:16.020 --> 00:10:17.230
  • NEXT, THE MAIN PRODUCER FROM A
  • 00:10:17.230 --> 00:10:19.230
  • MAJOR NETWORK CALLED.
  • 00:10:19.230 --> 00:10:21.180
  • HE SAID, "WE ARE STARTING A
  • 00:10:21.180 --> 00:10:23.180

  • GOING TO CALL IT 'NORTHERN

  • EXPOSURE.'" THAT SHOW WAS A
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:33.270
  • HUGE HIT. IT WAS THAT BIG BREAK
  • 00:10:33.270 --> 00:10:36.190
  • THAT LAUNCHED HER CAREER.
  • 00:10:36.190 --> 00:10:37.120
  • BUT SHE HAD TO GO THROUGH A
  • 00:10:37.120 --> 00:10:38.130
  • THOUSAND NO'S TO GET TO THAT
  • 00:10:38.130 --> 00:10:39.210
  • ONE YES. YOU MAY STRUGGLE WITH
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:41.190
  • AN ADDICTION, A BAD HABIT.
  • 00:10:41.200 --> 00:10:44.200
  • YOU THINK, "JOEL, I HAVE TRIED A
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:46.010
  • THOUSAND TIMES TO BREAK THIS."
  • 00:10:46.010 --> 00:10:48.010
  • I'M ASKING YOU TO TRY ONE MORE

  • IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:02.180
  • MOST LIKELY WE WON'T HAVE TO GO
  • 00:11:02.180 --> 00:11:04.290
  • THROUGH A THOUSAND NO'S LIKE
  • 00:11:04.290 --> 00:11:06.080
  • JANINE.
  • 00:11:06.080 --> 00:11:07.250
  • MY QUESTION IS, "ARE YOU WILLING
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:09.220
  • TO GO THROUGH A DOZEN?"
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:11.140
  • WILL YOU KEEP TRYING IF FIVE
  • 00:11:11.140 --> 00:11:12.260
  • BANKS TURN YOU DOWN?
  • 00:11:12.260 --> 00:11:14.090
  • WILL YOU STAY IN FAITH IF THE
  • 00:11:14.090 --> 00:11:15.210
  • MEDICAL REPORT IS NOT GOOD
  • 00:11:15.210 --> 00:11:17.130
  • THREE TIMES?
  • 00:11:17.130 --> 00:11:19.090
  • WILL YOU TAKE A CHANCE ON
  • 00:11:19.090 --> 00:11:20.010
  • MEETING SOMEBODY NEW IF A
  • 00:11:20.010 --> 00:11:21.150
  • RELATIONSHIP DIDN'T WORK OUT
  • 00:11:21.150 --> 00:11:22.140
  • TWICE BEFORE?
  • 00:11:22.140 --> 00:11:24.240
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP MOVING
  • 00:11:24.240 --> 00:11:25.290
  • FORWARD YOU HAVE TO KEEP THIS ON
  • 00:11:25.290 --> 00:11:27.240
  • THE FOREFRONT OF YOUR MIND,
  • 00:11:27.240 --> 00:11:29.130
  • "YES IS IN MY FUTURE.
  • 00:11:29.130 --> 00:11:30.260
  • YES, I WILL GET MARRIED.
  • 00:11:30.260 --> 00:11:32.280
  • YES, I WILL BE PROMOTED.
  • 00:11:32.280 --> 00:11:34.080
  • YES, I WILL FULFILL MY DESTINY."
  • 00:11:34.080 --> 00:11:36.080
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:38.080
  • THAT'S WHAT A FRIEND OF MINE
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:38.280
  • DID. SHE AND HER HUSBAND HAD
  • 00:11:38.280 --> 00:11:40.070
  • BEEN TRYING TO HAVE A BABY FOR
  • 00:11:40.070 --> 00:11:41.180
  • MANY YEARS. THEY HAD BEEN
  • 00:11:41.180 --> 00:11:43.000
  • THROUGH ALL OF THE FERTILITY
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:44.080
  • TREATMENTS, DONE EVERYTHING
  • 00:11:44.080 --> 00:11:45.180
  • THEY POSSIBLY COULD WITH NO
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:47.150
  • SUCCESS. THIS WENT ON YEAR
  • 00:11:47.150 --> 00:11:48.250
  • AFTER YEAR. AT THAT TIME SHE
  • 00:11:48.250 --> 00:11:50.210
  • WAS THE HEAD OF OUR CHILDREN'S
  • 00:11:50.210 --> 00:11:51.280
  • MINISTRY.
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:53.260
  • WHEN MY FATHER WENT TO BE WITH
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:55.030
  • THE LORD AND I STEPPED UP TO
  • 00:11:55.030 --> 00:11:56.080
  • PASTOR THE CHURCH BACK IN 1999
  • 00:11:56.080 --> 00:11:58.270
  • THEY HAD BEEN TRYING TO HAVE
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:12:00.200
  • THIS BABY ALREADY FOR MORE THAN
  • 00:12:00.200 --> 00:12:02.070
  • 20 YEARS.
  • 00:12:02.070 --> 00:12:03.190
  • THINK OF ALL THE NO'S SHE HAD
  • 00:12:03.190 --> 00:12:05.040
  • HEARD. EVERY TIME SHE TOOK THE
  • 00:12:05.040 --> 00:12:06.230
  • PREGNANCY TESTS HOPING THAT IT
  • 00:12:06.230 --> 00:12:08.250
  • WOULD COME BACK POSITIVE BUT IT
  • 00:12:08.250 --> 00:12:10.100
  • DIDN'T. THE ANSWER WAS NO.
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:12.080
  • HER MEDICAL DOCTOR, "SORRY,
  • 00:12:12.080 --> 00:12:13.250
  • YOU'RE NOT PREGNANT." THE
  • 00:12:13.250 --> 00:12:15.140
  • FERTILITY SPECIALIST, "NO, IT'S
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:17.030
  • NOT WORKING." SHE HEARD NO
  • 00:12:17.030 --> 00:12:18.160
  • AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:20.200
  • ONE DAY WE WERE IN A MEETING
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.080
  • ABOUT THE CHILDREN'S DEPARTMENT.
  • 00:12:22.080 --> 00:12:23.260
  • SHE MADE THE COMMENT, "I HAVE A
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:25.060
  • GOOD ASSISTANT TRAINED BECAUSE
  • 00:12:25.060 --> 00:12:27.080
  • WHEN I HAVE MY BABY I'M GOING TO
  • 00:12:27.080 --> 00:12:29.010
  • HAVE TO BE OUT FOR A LITTLE
  • 00:12:29.010 --> 00:12:30.050
  • WHILE."
  • 00:12:30.050 --> 00:12:31.150
  • I THOUGHT I WAS MISSING
  • 00:12:31.150 --> 00:12:32.110
  • SOMETHING. I DIDN'T KNOW THAT
  • 00:12:32.110 --> 00:12:33.120
  • SHE WAS PREGNANT. AFTERWARDS,
  • 00:12:33.120 --> 00:12:34.240
  • I SAID TO MY SISTER LISA, SHE
  • 00:12:34.240 --> 00:12:37.110
  • WAS IN THE MEETING, "I CAN'T
  • 00:12:37.110 --> 00:12:38.140
  • BELIEVE SHE'S GOING TO FINALLY
  • 00:12:38.140 --> 00:12:39.090
  • HAVE A BABY!"
  • 00:12:39.090 --> 00:12:41.230
  • LISA SAID, "NO, JOEL. SHE'S NOT
  • 00:12:41.230 --> 00:12:42.270
  • PREGNANT. SHE JUST TALKS LIKE
  • 00:12:42.270 --> 00:12:44.070
  • IT AND THINKS LIKE IT AND ACTS
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:46.030
  • LIKE IT."
  • 00:12:46.030 --> 00:12:47.200
  • ME BEING THE GREAT MAN OF FAITH
  • 00:12:47.200 --> 00:12:48.170
  • THAT I AM...(LAUGHTER)...I
  • 00:12:48.170 --> 00:12:51.150
  • THOUGHT, "THAT'S KIND OF FAR OUT
  • 00:12:51.150 --> 00:12:52.150
  • TO REALLY BELIEVE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:54.090
  • TO HAVE A BABY AT YOUR AGE."
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:56.260
  • THEN I REMEMBERED ABRAHAM AND
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:58.110
  • SARAH. GOD GAVE SARAH A BABY AT
  • 00:12:58.110 --> 00:13:00.060
  • 80 YEARS OLD. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:00.060 --> 00:13:02.190
  • IF GOD COULD DO IT FOR SARAH,
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:04.150
  • HE COULD DO IT FOR MY FRIEND.
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:06.080
  • THE GOOD THING ABOUT HAVING A
  • 00:13:06.080 --> 00:13:07.180
  • BABY AT THAT AGE IS WHEN THEY'RE
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:09.020
  • TEENAGERS YOU WON'T REMEMBER IT.
  • 00:13:09.020 --> 00:13:10.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:13:10.140 --> 00:13:12.250
  • SHE DIDN'T LET THE NO'S
  • 00:13:12.250 --> 00:13:13.260
  • DISCOURAGE HER. TWENTY-NINE
  • 00:13:13.260 --> 00:13:15.220
  • YEARS LATER SHE WENT TO THE
  • 00:13:15.220 --> 00:13:17.150
  • DOCTOR FOR A ROUTINE CHECKUP.
  • 00:13:17.150 --> 00:13:19.240
  • HE SAID, "CONGRATULATIONS.
  • 00:13:19.240 --> 00:13:21.060
  • YOU'RE PREGNANT. YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:13:21.060 --> 00:13:22.150
  • GOING TO HAVE ONE BABY. YOU'RE
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:23.230
  • GOING TO HAVE TWINS."
  • 00:13:23.230 --> 00:13:25.140
  • THEY HAD A DOUBLE PORTION.
  • 00:13:25.140 --> 00:13:26.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:26.200 --> 00:13:28.090
  • GOD HAD THE YES SHE NEEDED BUT
  • 00:13:28.090 --> 00:13:29.090
  • IT WAS 29 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD.
  • 00:13:29.090 --> 00:13:31.240
  • MOST PEOPLE WON'T GO THROUGH
  • 00:13:31.240 --> 00:13:33.150
  • THAT MANY NO'S TO GET TO THEIR
  • 00:13:33.150 --> 00:13:35.090
  • YES, NOT BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:36.270
  • DETERMINED ENOUGH, BUT THEY
  • 00:13:36.270 --> 00:13:39.060
  • DON'T REALLY BELIEVE THAT YES IS
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:40.230
  • THERE. THEY'VE HEARD THE NO'S
  • 00:13:40.230 --> 00:13:42.050
  • SO LONG IT'S CONVINCED THEM
  • 00:13:42.050 --> 00:13:44.230
  • THAT'S THE WAY IT'S ALWAYS
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:45.260
  • GOING TO BE.
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:47.040
  • NO, GOD WOULDN'T HAVE PUT THE
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:48.130
  • DREAM IN YOUR HEART, HE WOULDN'T
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:49.260
  • HAVE GIVEN YOU THAT PROMISE IF
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:51.220
  • HE DIDN'T ALREADY HAVE A PLAN TO
  • 00:13:51.220 --> 00:13:53.110
  • BRING IT TO PASS.
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:55.090
  • GOD ALREADY HAS A BABY IN YOUR
  • 00:13:55.090 --> 00:13:56.290
  • FUTURE, PROMOTION IN YOUR
  • 00:13:56.290 --> 00:13:59.220
  • FUTURE, HEALING IN YOUR FUTURE,
  • 00:13:59.220 --> 00:14:01.040
  • THE RIGHT PERSON IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:14:01.040 --> 00:14:03.020
  • MY QUESTION IS, "WILL YOU STAY
  • 00:14:03.020 --> 00:14:04.230
  • IN FAITH AND NOT LET YOUR NO'S
  • 00:14:04.230 --> 00:14:07.130
  • TALK YOU OUT OF YOUR YESSES?"
  • 00:14:07.130 --> 00:14:10.090
  • I'VE LEARNED WE HAVE TO GO
  • 00:14:10.090 --> 00:14:11.100
  • THROUGH THE NO'S.
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:13.160
  • I WISH I COULD TELL YOU IF YOU
  • 00:14:13.160 --> 00:14:14.180
  • PRAYED HARD ENOUGH, IF YOU CAME
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:16.030
  • TO CHURCH ENOUGH, IF YOU STAYED
  • 00:14:16.030 --> 00:14:18.040
  • IN FAITH THEN YOU WOULDN'T HAVE
  • 00:14:18.040 --> 00:14:19.170
  • ANY CLOSED DOORS. YOU WOULDN'T
  • 00:14:19.170 --> 00:14:21.000
  • HAVE TO GO THROUGH ANY NO'S.
  • 00:14:21.000 --> 00:14:23.020
  • YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE A SETBACK.
  • 00:14:23.020 --> 00:14:24.160
  • THAT'S NOT THE WAY GOD ORDAINED
  • 00:14:24.160 --> 00:14:26.020
  • IT. THE NO'S ARE A TEST OF OUR
  • 00:14:26.020 --> 00:14:28.110
  • FAITH.
  • 00:14:28.110 --> 00:14:30.040
  • IF WE'RE GOING TO PASS THAT TEST
  • 00:14:30.040 --> 00:14:31.160
  • WE HAVE TO SET OUR FACE LIKE A
  • 00:14:31.160 --> 00:14:33.030
  • FLINT AND SAY, "I WILL NOT BE
  • 00:14:33.030 --> 00:14:35.050
  • DISCOURAGED BY ANY SETBACKS, BY
  • 00:14:35.050 --> 00:14:37.070
  • HOW LONG IT'S TAKEN, BY WHAT THE
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:39.110
  • MEDICAL REPORT SAYS, BY PEOPLE
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:41.130
  • TRYING TO TALK ME OUT OF IT.
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:43.200
  • I'M IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL.
  • 00:14:43.200 --> 00:14:45.150
  • I KNOW YESSES ARE IN MY FUTURE."
  • 00:14:45.150 --> 00:14:47.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.220
  • I READ WHERE RESEARCHERS PUT A
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:50.210
  • BARRACUDA AND A SPANISH
  • 00:14:50.210 --> 00:14:52.190
  • MACKEREL IN THE SAME FISH TANK.
  • 00:14:52.190 --> 00:14:55.130
  • NORMALLY THE BARRACUDA WOULD
  • 00:14:55.130 --> 00:14:56.270
  • IMMEDIATELY DEVOUR THE MUCH
  • 00:14:56.270 --> 00:14:58.210
  • SMALLER SPANISH MACKEREL.
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:15:01.190
  • BUT IN THIS EXPERIMENT THE
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:02.190
  • RESEARCHERS PUT AN INVISIBLE
  • 00:15:02.190 --> 00:15:04.190
  • GLASS PARTITION BETWEEN THE TWO
  • 00:15:04.190 --> 00:15:06.170
  • FISH SO WHEN THE BARRACUDA SAW
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:08.140
  • THE SPANISH MACKEREL AND WENT IN
  • 00:15:08.140 --> 00:15:10.160
  • FOR THE KILL HE SLAMMED IN TO
  • 00:15:10.160 --> 00:15:12.050
  • THAT GLASS PARTITION, BRUISED
  • 00:15:12.050 --> 00:15:14.090
  • HIS NOSE, AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:15:14.090 --> 00:15:17.050
  • EVENTUALLY, THE BARRACUDA GOT
  • 00:15:17.050 --> 00:15:19.050
  • THE MESSAGE THAT HE WASN'T GOING
  • 00:15:19.050 --> 00:15:20.070
  • TO BE ABLE TO EAT THAT OTHER
  • 00:15:20.070 --> 00:15:21.280
  • FISH. HE GAVE UP AND HE QUIT
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:23.190
  • TRYING. AT THAT POINT THE
  • 00:15:23.190 --> 00:15:25.140
  • RESEARCHERS QUIETLY REMOVED THE
  • 00:15:25.140 --> 00:15:27.170
  • GLASS PARTITION. NOW NOTHING
  • 00:15:27.170 --> 00:15:29.070
  • WAS SEPARATING THE TWO FISH.
  • 00:15:29.070 --> 00:15:32.010
  • WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THE
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:33.110
  • BARRACUDA NEVER ONCE HARMED THE
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:35.150
  • SPANISH MACKEREL.
  • 00:15:35.150 --> 00:15:37.150
  • THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER,
  • 00:15:37.150 --> 00:15:38.290
  • SIDE BY SIDE; (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:38.290 --> 00:15:40.210
  • ...THAT SAME FISH TANK.
  • 00:15:40.210 --> 00:15:42.190
  • WHAT HAPPENED IS THE BARRACUDA
  • 00:15:42.190 --> 00:15:44.100
  • BECAME CONDITIONED IN HIS
  • 00:15:44.100 --> 00:15:46.040
  • THINKING THAT IT WOULD NEVER
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:48.080
  • WORK OUT. ALL HE HAD HEARD WAS,
  • 00:15:48.080 --> 00:15:49.270
  • "NO, NO, NO."
  • 00:15:49.270 --> 00:15:51.230
  • HE DIDN'T THINK THERE WERE ANY
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:52.200
  • YESSES IN HIS FUTURE.
  • 00:15:52.200 --> 00:15:54.110
  • HE JUST HAD TO TRY ONE MORE TIME
  • 00:15:54.110 --> 00:15:56.000
  • AND HE WOULD HAVE COME INTO HIS
  • 00:15:56.000 --> 00:15:57.060
  • YES. HE WOULD HAVE HAD A NICE
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:58.180
  • FISH DINNER. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:15:58.180 --> 00:16:01.130
  • WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BARRACUDA
  • 00:16:01.130 --> 00:16:02.120
  • HAPPENS TO MANY OF US. WE'VE
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:03.230
  • HIT THE WALL SO MANY TIMES, SO
  • 00:16:03.230 --> 00:16:05.290
  • TO SPEAK. IN OTHER WORDS, WE
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:07.220
  • TRIED TO BREAK THE ADDICTION
  • 00:16:07.220 --> 00:16:09.120
  • FOR YEARS. IT DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:16:09.120 --> 00:16:10.290
  • WORKED HARD BUT DIDN'T GET THE
  • 00:16:10.290 --> 00:16:12.060
  • PROMOTION.
  • 00:16:12.060 --> 00:16:13.130
  • PURSUED A DREAM BUT THE DOOR
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:14.130
  • CLOSED.
  • 00:16:14.130 --> 00:16:15.230
  • LIKE THAT BARRACUDA WE'VE LET
  • 00:16:15.230 --> 00:16:17.070
  • THIS STRONGHOLD CONVINCE US THAT
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:19.140
  • IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:21.180
  • BUT HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:16:21.180 --> 00:16:22.260
  • NOT REMOVED THE GLASS PARTITION
  • 00:16:22.260 --> 00:16:24.260
  • THAT WAS HOLDING YOU BACK?
  • 00:16:24.260 --> 00:16:27.090
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THE NEXT
  • 00:16:27.090 --> 00:16:28.110
  • TIME YOU TRY IS NOT GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:28.110 --> 00:16:30.000
  • YOUR YES?
  • 00:16:30.000 --> 00:16:31.220
  • THAT PARTITION MAY HAVE BEEN UP
  • 00:16:31.220 --> 00:16:33.070
  • FOR 29 YEARS BUT GOD CAN REMOVE
  • 00:16:33.070 --> 00:16:34.200
  • IT IN A SPLIT SECOND.
  • 00:16:34.200 --> 00:16:37.090
  • YOU'LL NEVER KNOW UNLESS YOU
  • 00:16:37.090 --> 00:16:38.130
  • KEEP TRYING, YOU KEEP DREAMING,
  • 00:16:38.130 --> 00:16:39.250
  • YOU KEEP PURSUING WHAT GOD PUT
  • 00:16:39.250 --> 00:16:41.170
  • IN YOUR HEART. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:43.080
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE THERE WAS A
  • 00:16:43.080 --> 00:16:44.160
  • GREAT DROUGHT IN THE LAND.
  • 00:16:44.160 --> 00:16:46.240
  • THE PROPHET ELIJAH WENT TO THE
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.070
  • TOP OF MOUNT CARMEL. HE PRAYED
  • 00:16:48.070 --> 00:16:49.220
  • AND ASKED GOD TO END THE
  • 00:16:49.220 --> 00:16:50.210
  • DROUGHT.
  • 00:16:50.210 --> 00:16:52.050
  • AFTER HE PRAYED HE SAID TO THE
  • 00:16:52.050 --> 00:16:53.140
  • PEOPLE, "I CAN HEAR THE SOUND OF
  • 00:16:53.140 --> 00:16:54.280
  • AN ABUNDANCE OF RAIN."
  • 00:16:54.280 --> 00:16:57.240
  • HE WAS SAYING IN EFFECT,
  • 00:16:57.240 --> 00:16:59.000
  • "THERE'S A YES IN OUR FUTURE.
  • 00:16:59.000 --> 00:17:00.240
  • RAIN IS COMING."
  • 00:17:00.240 --> 00:17:02.190
  • HE TOLD HIS ASSISTANT TO GO LOOK
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:04.130
  • ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:05.160
  • MOUNTAIN TO SEE IF THEY COULD
  • 00:17:05.160 --> 00:17:07.010
  • SEE ANY SIGN OF RAIN.
  • 00:17:07.010 --> 00:17:08.260
  • THE ASSISTANT WENT OUT, CAME
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:10.010
  • BACK A LITTLE LATER AND SAID,
  • 00:17:10.010 --> 00:17:11.140
  • "NO, ELIJAH. THERE'S NOT A
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:12.240
  • CLOUD IN THE SKY. IT'S
  • 00:17:12.240 --> 00:17:14.050
  • PERFECTLY CLEAR."
  • 00:17:14.050 --> 00:17:15.290
  • ELIJAH DIDN'T GET DISCOURAGED
  • 00:17:15.290 --> 00:17:17.220
  • AND THINK, "OH, MAN. I MUST
  • 00:17:17.220 --> 00:17:18.260
  • HAVE HEARD GOD WRONG. THERE'S
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:20.050
  • NOT ANY RAIN COMING. WHAT ARE
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.120
  • WE GOING TO DO?"
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:22.050
  • NO, WHEN HE HEARD THAT, HE SAID,
  • 00:17:22.050 --> 00:17:23.200
  • "ALRIGHT. THAT'S ONE NO OUT OF
  • 00:17:23.200 --> 00:17:25.170
  • THE WAY. NOW GO BACK AND LOOK
  • 00:17:25.170 --> 00:17:26.200
  • AGAIN."
  • 00:17:26.200 --> 00:17:28.220
  • THE ASSISTANT WENT BACK OUT,
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:30.000
  • CAME BACK WITH THE SAME ANSWER,
  • 00:17:30.000 --> 00:17:31.290
  • "ELIJAH, NO RAIN."
  • 00:17:31.290 --> 00:17:34.040
  • ELIJAH SAID, "THAT'S FINE. TWO
  • 00:17:34.040 --> 00:17:35.140
  • NO'S OUT OF THE WAY. GO BACK
  • 00:17:35.140 --> 00:17:36.260
  • AND LOOK AGAIN."
  • 00:17:36.260 --> 00:17:38.260
  • THREE NO'S, FOUR NO'S, FIVE
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:39.250
  • NO'S, SIX NO'S. ON THE SEVENTH
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:41.100
  • TIME THE SERVANT CAME BACK AND
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:43.200
  • SAID, "ELIJAH, THIS TIME I SAW
  • 00:17:43.200 --> 00:17:46.120
  • A SMALL CLOUD IN THE SKY.
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:49.100
  • IT WASN'T MUCH. JUST THE SIZE
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:50.190
  • OF A MAN'S HAND."
  • 00:17:50.190 --> 00:17:53.150
  • ELIJAH SAID, "YOU'D BETTER GET
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:54.140
  • YOUR RAINCOAT. GET YOUR
  • 00:17:54.140 --> 00:17:55.150
  • UMBRELLA. RAIN IS COMING OUR
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:56.110
  • WAY."
  • 00:17:56.110 --> 00:17:58.210
  • SEE, IT MAY BE A SMALL YES, A
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:18:00.090
  • FAINT YES, A BARELY SEE IT YES
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:02.010
  • BUT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING THINGS
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:05.020
  • TO CHANGE IN YOUR FAVOR, WHEN
  • 00:18:05.020 --> 00:18:06.260
  • YOU KNOW GOD HAS YES IN YOUR
  • 00:18:06.260 --> 00:18:08.100
  • FUTURE IT MAY BE A SMALL SIGN
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:09.160
  • BUT BY FAITH YOU'LL LATCH ONTO
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:13.030
  • IT.
  • 00:18:13.030 --> 00:18:14.070
  • "THAT'S MY YES. OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:18:14.070 --> 00:18:15.190
  • MAY NOT SEE IT. OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:18:15.190 --> 00:18:17.040
  • MAY TRY TO TALK ME OUT OF IT.
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:19.030
  • OTHER PEOPLE MAY SAY I'M JUST
  • 00:18:19.030 --> 00:18:20.170
  • TOO POSITIVE, TOO HOPEFUL.
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:21.260
  • THAT'S OKAY. I'M A BELIEVER AND
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:23.100
  • NOT A DOUBTER. I KNOW THAT'S MY
  • 00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.250
  • YES." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:24.250 --> 00:18:27.180
  • IT WASN'T ANY TIME BEFORE THE
  • 00:18:27.180 --> 00:18:29.000
  • HEAVENS OPENED UP AND THEY SAW
  • 00:18:29.000 --> 00:18:30.140
  • THE ABUNDANCE OF RAIN. BUT HAD
  • 00:18:30.140 --> 00:18:33.040
  • ELIJAH GIVEN UP ON THE FIRST
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:35.010
  • NO, THE SECOND NO, THE SIXTH
  • 00:18:35.010 --> 00:18:37.050
  • NO, IT WOULD HAVE NEVER
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:38.140
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:18:38.140 --> 00:18:39.250
  • THINK ABOUT THIS. WHEN ELIJAH
  • 00:18:39.250 --> 00:18:40.280
  • SENT HIS ASSISTANT OUT TO LOOK,
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:43.180
  • THAT WAS AN ACT OF HIS FAITH.
  • 00:18:43.190 --> 00:18:46.190
  • FAITH IS WHAT CAUSES GOD TO
  • 00:18:46.190 --> 00:18:47.220
  • MOVE.
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:49.060
  • THERE ARE YESSES IN YOUR FUTURE
  • 00:18:49.060 --> 00:18:51.070
  • WAITING FOR YOU TO COME LOOKING
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:53.020
  • FOR THEM. NOT ONCE. NOT TWICE.
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:55.130
  • NOT A FEW TIMES.
  • 00:18:55.130 --> 00:18:56.130
  • KEEP LOOKING. KEEP EXPECTING.
  • 00:18:56.130 --> 00:18:58.050
  • KEEP DREAMING.
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:18:59.150
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A MADE UP
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:00.220
  • MIND. YOU ARE IN IT TO WIN IT.
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:03.080
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LET PEOPLE
  • 00:19:03.080 --> 00:19:04.060
  • TALK YOU OUT OF IT. YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:05.130
  • GOING TO GIVE UP BECAUSE IT
  • 00:19:05.130 --> 00:19:06.200
  • DIDN'T HAPPEN ON YOUR
  • 00:19:06.200 --> 00:19:07.220
  • TIMETABLE. YOU'RE NOT GOING TO
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:09.020
  • SETTLE FOR SECOND BEST BECAUSE
  • 00:19:09.020 --> 00:19:10.240
  • A FEW DOORS HAVE CLOSED.
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:13.050
  • I WAS READING ABOUT THOMAS
  • 00:19:13.050 --> 00:19:14.100
  • EDISON.
  • 00:19:14.100 --> 00:19:15.210
  • WHEN HE WAS TRYING TO INVENT THE
  • 00:19:15.210 --> 00:19:16.160
  • LIGHT BULB HE FAILED ON HIS
  • 00:19:16.160 --> 00:19:18.110
  • FIRST 2.000 ATTEMPTS.
  • 00:19:18.110 --> 00:19:21.030
  • TWO THOUSAND TIMES HE TRIED IT
  • 00:19:21.030 --> 00:19:22.250
  • AND IT DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:19:22.250 --> 00:19:24.120
  • TWO THOUSAND TIMES HE WAS TOLD
  • 00:19:24.120 --> 00:19:25.160
  • NO.
  • 00:19:25.160 --> 00:19:26.280
  • HE COULD HAVE GIVEN UP AND QUIT
  • 00:19:26.280 --> 00:19:28.030
  • BUT HE JUST KEPT LOOKING FOR
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:29.160
  • THAT ONE YES.
  • 00:19:29.160 --> 00:19:31.120
  • AFTER HE INVENTED IT A REPORTER
  • 00:19:31.120 --> 00:19:33.060
  • ASKED HIM ABOUT ALL OF HIS
  • 00:19:33.060 --> 00:19:35.030
  • FAILURES, ALL THOSE EXPERIMENTS
  • 00:19:35.030 --> 00:19:37.100
  • THAT DIDN'T WORK. HE SAID,
  • 00:19:37.100 --> 00:19:39.010
  • "LISTEN, I NEVER FAILED ONCE.
  • 00:19:39.010 --> 00:19:41.040
  • I JUST FOUND 2.000 WAYS THAT
  • 00:19:41.040 --> 00:19:43.000
  • WOULDN'T WORK." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:19:43.000 --> 00:19:44.240
  • YOU MAY HAVE HAD SOME SETBACKS,
  • 00:19:44.240 --> 00:19:46.270
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS, TRIED
  • 00:19:46.270 --> 00:19:48.110
  • SOMETHING THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:19:48.110 --> 00:19:49.230
  • THAT WAS NOT A WASTE OF YOUR
  • 00:19:49.230 --> 00:19:51.070
  • TIME. EVERYTHING YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:19:51.070 --> 00:19:53.100
  • THROUGH HAS DEPOSITED SOMETHING
  • 00:19:53.100 --> 00:19:54.290
  • ON THE INSIDE. GOD DOESN'T
  • 00:19:54.290 --> 00:19:56.260
  • WASTE ANYTHING. YOU ARE NOT
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:19:58.240
  • DEFINED BY YOUR PAST. YOU ARE
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:20:01.030
  • PREPARED BY YOUR PAST.
  • 00:20:01.030 --> 00:20:03.080
  • JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE HAD SOME
  • 00:20:03.080 --> 00:20:04.150
  • NO'S THAT DOESN'T DISQUALIFY
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:05.250
  • YOU.
  • 00:20:05.250 --> 00:20:06.290
  • YES IS STILL IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:20:06.290 --> 00:20:09.080
  • WHEN YOU HIT YOUR BIG YES LIKE
  • 00:20:09.080 --> 00:20:11.040
  • EDISON ALL THE OTHER NO'S ARE
  • 00:20:11.040 --> 00:20:13.110
  • GOING TO BECOME INSIGNIFICANT.
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:16.050
  • NOW DON'T GO AROUND FEELING BAD
  • 00:20:16.050 --> 00:20:17.110
  • ABOUT YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:18.150
  • NOT WHERE YOU WANT TO BE.
  • 00:20:18.150 --> 00:20:20.120
  • DON'T FOCUS ON THE
  • 00:20:20.120 --> 00:20:21.130
  • DISAPPOINTMENT, THE FAILURE, THE
  • 00:20:21.130 --> 00:20:23.060
  • MISTAKE. THAT WAS ALL A PART OF
  • 00:20:23.060 --> 00:20:24.180
  • GOD'S PLAN. IT'S GETTING YOU
  • 00:20:24.180 --> 00:20:26.160
  • PREPARED FOR YOUR YES.
  • 00:20:26.160 --> 00:20:29.160
  • YOU KEEP MOVING FORWARD, BEING
  • 00:20:29.160 --> 00:20:31.020
  • YOUR BEST, HONORING GOD,
  • 00:20:31.020 --> 00:20:33.230
  • DETERMINED, PERSISTENT AND GOD
  • 00:20:33.230 --> 00:20:34.290
  • PROMISES YOU'RE GOING TO COME
  • 00:20:34.290 --> 00:20:36.180
  • INTO YES.
  • 00:20:36.180 --> 00:20:37.290
  • WHEN I WAS GROWING UP MY MOTHER
  • 00:20:37.290 --> 00:20:39.080
  • ALWAYS WANTED A SWIMMING POOL IN
  • 00:20:39.080 --> 00:20:40.290
  • OUR BACKYARD. MY FATHER WAS
  • 00:20:40.290 --> 00:20:43.110
  • VERY GENEROUS. HE WOULD BUY HER
  • 00:20:43.110 --> 00:20:44.250
  • PRACTICALLY ANYTHING BUT A
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:46.250
  • SWIMMING POOL WAS THE ONE THING
  • 00:20:46.250 --> 00:20:48.080
  • THAT HE DID NOT WANT.
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:50.260
  • HE SAID, "DODIE, A SWIMMING POOL
  • 00:20:50.260 --> 00:20:51.290
  • IS A LOT OF MONEY. IT'S A LOT OF
  • 00:20:51.290 --> 00:20:53.140
  • MAINTENANCE. IT'S DANGEROUS."
  • 00:20:53.140 --> 00:20:55.110
  • ON AND ON, HE GAVE HER THIS
  • 00:20:55.110 --> 00:20:56.210
  • RESOUNDING NO.
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:58.250
  • WHAT'S FUNNY IS THAT WENT IN ONE
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:01.080
  • OF MY MOTHER'S EARS AND OUT THE
  • 00:21:01.080 --> 00:21:04.020
  • OTHER. IT NO MORE FAZED HER.
  • 00:21:04.020 --> 00:21:05.220
  • SHE ACTED LIKE SHE DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:06.180
  • HEAR IT.
  • 00:21:06.180 --> 00:21:09.020
  • ABOUT A MONTH LATER MY FATHER
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:10.160
  • AND I WERE IN THE BACKYARD
  • 00:21:10.160 --> 00:21:11.200
  • PLAYING BASEBALL. MY MOTHER
  • 00:21:11.200 --> 00:21:12.170
  • CAME OUT WITH A TAPE MEASURE.
  • 00:21:12.170 --> 00:21:13.260
  • SHE STARTED MEASURING THINGS,
  • 00:21:13.260 --> 00:21:15.030
  • PUTTING DOWN SOME MARKERS.
  • 00:21:15.030 --> 00:21:17.000
  • SHE SAID, "JOHN, IF WE ANGLE IT
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:18.010
  • I THINK IT WILL FIT JUST RIGHT,
  • 00:21:18.010 --> 00:21:19.230
  • RIGHT HERE." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:21.200
  • HE SAID, "DODIE, WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:21:21.200 --> 00:21:22.080
  • TALKING ABOUT?"
  • 00:21:22.080 --> 00:21:23.130
  • SHE SAID, "THAT SWIMMING POOL
  • 00:21:23.130 --> 00:21:24.110
  • WE'RE GOING TO GET. IT WOULD
  • 00:21:24.110 --> 00:21:25.230
  • FIT RIGHT HERE."
  • 00:21:25.230 --> 00:21:27.020
  • HE SAID, "I HAVE TOLD YOU A
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:28.090
  • THOUSAND TIMES WE ARE NOT GOING
  • 00:21:28.090 --> 00:21:29.180
  • TO GET A SWIMMING POOL. YOU ARE
  • 00:21:29.180 --> 00:21:30.280
  • WASTING YOUR TIME."
  • 00:21:30.280 --> 00:21:32.090
  • JUST LIKE ELIJAH, MY MOTHER
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:36.070
  • HEARD NO AFTER NO AFTER NO.
  • 00:21:36.070 --> 00:21:38.140
  • SHE COULD HAVE EASILY GOTTEN
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:39.140
  • STUCK ON ONE OF THOSE NO'S.
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:40.250
  • SHE DIDN'T DO IT. SHE KEPT
  • 00:21:40.250 --> 00:21:42.020
  • BELIEVING. SHE KNEW THERE WAS A
  • 00:21:42.020 --> 00:21:43.170
  • YES IN HER FUTURE.
  • 00:21:43.170 --> 00:21:45.220
  • THAT SUMMER WE WERE IN ANOTHER
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:46.270
  • CITY. MY FATHER WAS SPEAKING AT
  • 00:21:46.270 --> 00:21:48.100
  • THIS BIG CONVENTION.
  • 00:21:48.100 --> 00:21:50.050
  • MY PARENTS WERE IN THE HOTEL
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:51.080
  • LOBBY. THIS BUSINESSMAN CAME UP
  • 00:21:51.080 --> 00:21:52.200
  • AND INTRODUCED HIMSELF.
  • 00:21:52.200 --> 00:21:55.050
  • DURING THE CONVERSATION HE SAID,
  • 00:21:55.050 --> 00:21:56.130
  • "I BUILD SWIMMING POOLS FOR A
  • 00:21:56.130 --> 00:21:57.190
  • LIVING."
  • 00:21:57.190 --> 00:21:59.220
  • MY MOTHER'S EYES GOT THIS BIG.
  • 00:21:59.220 --> 00:22:01.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:01.190 --> 00:22:02.250
  • SHE SAID, "HOW YOU DOING OLD
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:03.160
  • BUDDY, OLD PAL? WE'VE BEEN
  • 00:22:03.160 --> 00:22:04.200
  • WAITING FOR YOU."
  • 00:22:04.200 --> 00:22:06.100
  • HE SAID, "PASTOR, I WOULD LIKE
  • 00:22:06.100 --> 00:22:07.190
  • TO BUILD YOU A SWIMMING POOL."
  • 00:22:07.190 --> 00:22:10.110
  • MY DAD SAID, "OH, SIR. THAT'S
  • 00:22:10.110 --> 00:22:11.220
  • SO KIND OF YOU BUT WE REALLY
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:12.290
  • CAN'T AFFORD IT. AND WE MAY NOT
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:14.140
  • HAVE ROOM IN OUR BACKYARD."
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:15.240
  • ON AND ON.
  • 00:22:15.240 --> 00:22:16.250
  • THE WHOLE TIME MY MOM WAS
  • 00:22:16.250 --> 00:22:17.240
  • SHAKING HER HEAD YES.
  • 00:22:17.240 --> 00:22:20.110
  • HE SAID, "PASTOR, I DON'T WANT
  • 00:22:20.110 --> 00:22:21.110
  • YOU TO PAY FOR IT. I WANT TO
  • 00:22:21.110 --> 00:22:22.130
  • GIVE IT TO YOU. SURELY YOU'LL
  • 00:22:22.130 --> 00:22:23.290
  • LET ME GIVE YOU A SWIMMING
  • 00:22:23.290 --> 00:22:24.290
  • POOL."
  • 00:22:24.290 --> 00:22:27.110
  • SEVERAL MONTHS LATER WHILE WE
  • 00:22:27.110 --> 00:22:28.170
  • WERE OUT OF TOWN HE AND HIS CREW
  • 00:22:28.170 --> 00:22:30.030
  • CAME IN TO THE CITY. THEY PUT
  • 00:22:30.030 --> 00:22:31.260
  • THIS BEAUTIFUL UNDERGROUND
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:33.090
  • SWIMMING POOL IN OUR
  • 00:22:33.090 --> 00:22:34.080
  • BACKYARD. WHEN WE CAME HOME WE
  • 00:22:34.080 --> 00:22:36.080
  • COULDN'T WAIT TO GET IN IT.
  • 00:22:36.080 --> 00:22:38.140
  • ALL OF US KIDS RAN AND JUMPED
  • 00:22:38.140 --> 00:22:40.000
  • IN IT. MY MOTHER GOT IN IT AND
  • 00:22:40.000 --> 00:22:41.170
  • HERE CAME MY FATHER. I'LL NEVER
  • 00:22:41.170 --> 00:22:43.030
  • FORGET. MY MOTHER SAID, "JOHN,
  • 00:22:43.030 --> 00:22:44.180
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GETTING
  • 00:22:44.180 --> 00:22:45.230
  • IN MY SWIMMING POOL."
  • 00:22:45.230 --> 00:22:47.180
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:22:47.180 --> 00:22:49.280
  • THERE ARE YESSES IN YOUR FUTURE
  • 00:22:49.280 --> 00:22:51.260
  • BUT YOU'VE GOT TO GO THROUGH
  • 00:22:51.260 --> 00:22:53.170
  • THE NO'S FIRST.
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:55.020
  • I SAY THIS RESPECTFULLY.
  • 00:22:55.020 --> 00:22:57.290
  • SOMETIMES THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:22:59.290
  • US, OUR FRIENDS, OUR FAMILY, CAN
  • 00:22:59.290 --> 00:23:02.010
  • BE THE LEAST ENCOURAGING, THE
  • 00:23:02.010 --> 00:23:03.230
  • LEAST ENLARGING. WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:23:03.230 --> 00:23:05.230
  • IS GOD PUTS DREAMS IN OUR HEART
  • 00:23:05.230 --> 00:23:08.110
  • THAT ARE BIGGER THAN WE CAN
  • 00:23:08.110 --> 00:23:09.260
  • ACCOMPLISH ON OUR OWN.
  • 00:23:09.260 --> 00:23:11.120
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE HIS HAND OF
  • 00:23:11.120 --> 00:23:12.280
  • FAVOR.
  • 00:23:12.280 --> 00:23:14.050
  • THE PEOPLE CLOSE TO US, THEY
  • 00:23:14.050 --> 00:23:16.160
  • KNOW US VERY WELL AND SO OFTEN
  • 00:23:16.160 --> 00:23:18.020
  • THEY'LL ONLY LOOK AT YOU IN YOUR
  • 00:23:18.020 --> 00:23:19.130
  • NATURAL ABILITY, YOUR STRENGTH,
  • 00:23:19.130 --> 00:23:20.280
  • YOUR TALENT, YOUR FINANCES.
  • 00:23:20.280 --> 00:23:22.140
  • THEY'LL THINK, "THAT'S TOO BIG.
  • 00:23:22.140 --> 00:23:24.180
  • YOU CAN'T DO THAT. THAT'S WAY
  • 00:23:24.180 --> 00:23:25.250
  • OVER YOUR HEAD."
  • 00:23:25.250 --> 00:23:28.120
  • AND OF COURSE WE SHOULD ALWAYS
  • 00:23:28.120 --> 00:23:29.030
  • BE RESPECTFUL AND TAKE ADVICE
  • 00:23:29.030 --> 00:23:30.240
  • BUT WHEN GOD HAS PUT A DREAM IN
  • 00:23:30.240 --> 00:23:32.060
  • YOUR HEART DON'T LET ANYONE TALK
  • 00:23:32.060 --> 00:23:33.250
  • YOU OUT OF IT, NOT EVEN SOMEBODY
  • 00:23:33.250 --> 00:23:35.020
  • THAT'S CLOSE TO YOU. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:23:35.280 --> 00:23:38.280
  • MY FATHER MEANT WELL. HE WAS
  • 00:23:38.280 --> 00:23:40.030
  • VERY GENEROUS BUT BECAUSE
  • 00:23:40.030 --> 00:23:41.210
  • HE COULDN'T AFFORD THE SWIMMING
  • 00:23:41.210 --> 00:23:43.150
  • POOL HE TRIED TO PUT THOSE
  • 00:23:43.150 --> 00:23:45.090
  • LIMITATIONS ON MY MOTHER.
  • 00:23:45.090 --> 00:23:47.160
  • HE WAS LOOKING AT IT IN THE
  • 00:23:47.160 --> 00:23:48.210
  • NATURAL BUT WE SERVE A
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:50.090
  • SUPERNATURAL GOD.

  • DON'T WORK FOR, YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:23:59.250
  • TO BUY IT. IT'S SIMPLY THE

  • BEEN DETERMINED. YOU'VE PRESSED
  • 00:24:11.220 --> 00:24:13.030
  • THROUGH THE NO'S. GOD IS
  • 00:24:13.030 --> 00:24:14.110
  • SAYING, "YOU'RE ABOUT TO COME
  • 00:24:14.110 --> 00:24:15.170
  • INTO A YES."
  • 00:24:15.170 --> 00:24:17.060
