  • 00:08:50.220 --> 00:08:52.130
  • I DON'T KNOW WHO THIS IS FOR, BUT THERE ARE SOME
  • 00:08:52.150 --> 00:08:55.150
  • SPIRITUAL ACHES AND PAINS.
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:57.160
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS IN THE NATURAL
  • 00:08:57.180 --> 00:08:58.270
  • WHEN YOU'RE GROWING.
  • 00:08:58.290 --> 00:09:00.050
  • THEY'RE CALLED GROWING PAINS.
  • 00:09:00.070 --> 00:09:02.120
  • ANYBODY FEEL SOMETHING IN THE SPIRIT LIKE, DANG,
  • 00:09:02.140 --> 00:09:04.280
  • EVERYTHING WAS COOL.
  • 00:09:05.000 --> 00:09:06.260
  • NOW ALL OF THE SUDDEN I'M UNCOMFORTABLE
  • 00:09:06.280 --> 00:09:08.060
  • IN THIS AREA.
  • 00:09:08.080 --> 00:09:09.160
  • THAT'S GROWING PAINS.
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:10.280
  • GOD LOVES YOU ENOUGH NOT TO LET YOU STAY
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.140
  • COMPLACENT IN THAT AREA.
  • 00:09:12.160 --> 00:09:14.150
  • HE LOVES YOU ENOUGH NOT TO LET THAT
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:16.270
  • THING STAY COVERED.
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:18.130
  • HE'S GOING TO TAKE THE SCAB OFF.
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:19.290
  • HE'S TAKING THE BAND AID OFF SO WE CAN DEAL
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:21.200
  • WITH IT, SO WE CAN HEAL FROM IT.
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:23.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:09:23.130 --> 00:09:30.180
  • JESUS HAD TO WAIT.
  • 00:09:30.200 --> 00:09:32.120
  • HE HAD TO TRUST THE PROCESS.
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:34.250
  • WRITE THIS ONE DOWN, IF YOU WILL.
  • 00:09:34.270 --> 00:09:37.070
  • TRUST THE PROCESS.
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:40.160
  • THREE THINGS PROCESS DOES FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:42.260
  • THREE THINGS PROCESS DOES FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:42.280 --> 00:09:44.240
  • NUMBER ONE, PROCESS ENSURES DEPTH.
  • 00:09:44.260 --> 00:09:48.110
  • WE DON'T NEED ANYMORE SURFACE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:09:48.130 --> 00:09:52.100
  • WE NEED NO MORE SURFACE LEADERS.
  • 00:09:52.120 --> 00:09:54.090
  • WE HAVE ENOUGH OF THAT.
  • 00:09:54.110 --> 00:09:56.090
  • WE NEED SOME FOLK WHO CAN SPEAK THE TRUTH IN A WAY
  • 00:09:56.110 --> 00:10:00.250
  • THAT PEOPLE CAN HEAR IT BUT ALSO ADDS DEPTH TO
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:05.220
  • THEIR UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:10:05.240 --> 00:10:07.130
  • PROCESS GIVES YOU DEPTH. PROCESS STRENGTHENS ROOTS.
  • 00:10:07.150 --> 00:10:13.180
  • YOU KNOW HOW MANY OF US NEED ROOTS?
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:17.260
  • YOU NEED ROOTING SO THAT WHEN THE STORMS COME,
  • 00:10:17.280 --> 00:10:21.180
  • YOU'RE NOT SURFACE BECAUSE ANYTHING ON THE SURFACE IS
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:25.150
  • GOING TO GET BLOWN OVER.
  • 00:10:25.170 --> 00:10:27.170
  • YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO HAVE A STRONG WIND, BUT IF
  • 00:10:27.190 --> 00:10:29.190
  • YOU'VE GOT HURRICANE-FORCE WINDS AND A DEEP ROOTING
  • 00:10:29.210 --> 00:10:31.210
  • SYSTEM, YOU CAN WITHSTAND.
  • 00:10:31.230 --> 00:10:33.290
  • YOU MIGHT BEND, BUT YOU WON'T BREAK.
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:35.170
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:10:35.190 --> 00:10:38.280
  • I'M TRYING TO PREACH. I FEEL IT IN HERE.
  • 00:10:39.000 --> 00:10:42.200
  • I'M TRYING, I'M TRYING TO BRING IT BACK, BUT I FEEL
  • 00:10:42.220 --> 00:10:45.200
  • IT COMING OUT BECAUSE SOMEBODY NEEDS TO BE
  • 00:10:45.220 --> 00:10:47.180
  • ENCOURAGED THAT THE REASON WHY THINGS ARE GOING SLOW
  • 00:10:47.200 --> 00:10:50.090
  • IS BECAUSE IF YOU WANT TO GROW A MUSHROOM, IT TAKES
  • 00:10:50.110 --> 00:10:53.100
  • SIX HOURS, BUT A FULLY MATURE OAK TREE
  • 00:10:53.120 --> 00:10:55.290
  • MAY TAKE 60 YEARS.
  • 00:10:56.010 --> 00:10:57.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:10:57.200 --> 00:11:00.110
  • AND THE DIFFERENCE IS NOT JUST THE FRUIT,
  • 00:11:00.130 --> 00:11:02.080
  • IT'S THE ROOT.
  • 00:11:02.100 --> 00:11:05.150
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO PRODUCE FRUIT, BUT YOU
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:08.060
  • DON'T HAVE A ROOT, AND YOU CAN'T GET DEEPER ROOTS
  • 00:11:08.080 --> 00:11:11.040
  • UNLESS YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT SOIL, AND EVEN IF YOU'RE
  • 00:11:11.060 --> 00:11:13.220
  • IN SOIL, YOU CAN'T GROW UNLESS THERE'S FERTILIZER,
  • 00:11:13.240 --> 00:11:17.000
  • AND UNLESS YOU'VE GONE THROUGH SOME MESS...
  • 00:11:17.020 --> 00:11:19.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:22.180
  • ANYBODY GONE THROUGH SOME MESS?
  • 00:11:22.200 --> 00:11:25.190
  • LIKE, LORD, WHY IS THIS ALL AROUND MY FEET?
  • 00:11:25.210 --> 00:11:27.240
  • I'M TRYING TO GROW YOU.
  • 00:11:27.260 --> 00:11:30.040
  • WHY IS THIS HAPPENING IN MY LIFE?
  • 00:11:30.060 --> 00:11:31.250
  • AIN'T THIS A MESS?
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:33.120
  • YES, BECAUSE I USE MESS TO BLESS.
  • 00:11:33.140 --> 00:11:34.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:11:34.250 --> 00:11:40.090
  • PROCESS ENSURES DEPTH.
  • 00:11:40.110 --> 00:11:42.200
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO BE MATURE TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK THE
  • 00:11:42.220 --> 00:11:44.230
  • WORD OF GOD WITH STRENGTH AND WITH CLARITY.
  • 00:11:44.250 --> 00:11:47.030
  • IT ALSO STRENGTHENS YOUR ROOTS.
  • 00:11:47.050 --> 00:11:49.280
  • BUT THE THIRD THING PROCESS DOES IS
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:51.190
  • IT BUILDS CHARACTER.
  • 00:11:51.210 --> 00:11:53.240
  • PROCESS BUILDS CHARACTER.
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:57.000
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN LUKE 2:52 THAT JESUS GREW IN
  • 00:11:57.020 --> 00:12:00.140
  • WISDOM AND IN STATURE AND IN FAVOR WITH GOD AND MAN.
  • 00:12:00.160 --> 00:12:03.230
  • I'M PROPHETICALLY SPEAKING THAT FOR THOSE WHO WILL
  • 00:12:03.250 --> 00:12:09.190
  • RECEIVE IT, YOU WILL BEGIN TO SEE UNCANNY FAVOR WITH
  • 00:12:09.210 --> 00:12:14.110
  • GOD AND WITH MAN, IN BUSINESS,
  • 00:12:14.130 --> 00:12:18.200
  • IN EDUCATION, IN FINANCE.
  • 00:12:18.220 --> 00:12:22.180
  • YOU WILL BEGIN TO SEE FAVOR WITH GOD AND MAN.
  • 00:12:22.200 --> 00:12:26.030
  • I BELIEVE THAT DOORS THAT HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY
  • 00:12:26.050 --> 00:12:28.270
  • CLOSED TO YOU WILL ALL OF THE SUDDEN BECOME OPEN IF
  • 00:12:28.290 --> 00:12:33.140
  • YOU WILL COMMIT YOURSELF TO ROOTING YOURSELF IN THE
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:36.190
  • WORD, GIVING YOUR BURDENS TO JESUS, EXCHANGING YOUR
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:39.200
  • BURDENS FOR HIS PEACE AND HIS REST, AND THEN SITTING
  • 00:12:39.220 --> 00:12:44.110
  • THERE AND TRUSTING.
  • 00:12:44.130 --> 00:12:46.080
  • LET ME TELL YOU PROPHETICALLY THAT THE
  • 00:12:46.100 --> 00:12:48.190
  • DOOR IS SWINGING IN YOUR FAVOR.
  • 00:12:48.210 --> 00:12:50.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:12:50.130 --> 00:12:56.010
  • BUT IT'S HARD TO WAIT BECAUSE WE ARE NOT A
  • 00:12:56.030 --> 00:13:01.190
  • CULTURE THAT WAITS OF THE NOW WE'VE GOT DVR BOXES.
  • 00:13:01.210 --> 00:13:05.170
  • WHEN WE GO HOME, WE'RE GOING IT WATCH OUR PROGRAMS.
  • 00:13:05.190 --> 00:13:07.230
  • WE'RE GOING WATCH THE PART WE WANT, AND THEN WHEN
  • 00:13:07.250 --> 00:13:09.250
  • THEY GO TO COMMERCIAL...
  • 00:13:09.270 --> 00:13:13.170
  • WOULDN'T WE LOVE TO HAVE A FAST FORWARD BUTTON
  • 00:13:13.190 --> 00:13:16.210
  • IN OUR LIVES?
  • 00:13:16.230 --> 00:13:19.100
  • SOME OF US WOULD LIKE A REWIND.
  • 00:13:19.120 --> 00:13:21.200
  • I'D REWIND TO THE DAY BEFORE YOU MET YOU,
  • 00:13:21.220 --> 00:13:22.250
  • I SURE WOULD.
  • 00:13:22.270 --> 00:13:24.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:28.260
  • [REWIND SOUND]
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.260
  • CAN I HAVE YOUR NUMBER? NO!
  • 00:13:30.280 --> 00:13:32.290
  • AND I MEAN NO!
  • 00:13:33.010 --> 00:13:36.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:36.100 --> 00:13:39.070
  • DON'T EVEN COME OVER HERE.
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:41.120
  • YOU'RE GOING TO RUIN MY WHOLE LIFE!
  • 00:13:41.140 --> 00:13:44.170
  • I GOT THESE KIDS THAT LOOK LIKE YOU.
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:46.040
  • YOU AIN'T PAID ONE NICKEL.
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:48.040
  • LET ME REWIND.
  • 00:13:48.060 --> 00:13:49.150
  • BUT LET ME TELL YOU GOD KNOWS HOW TO FAST FORWARD
  • 00:13:49.170 --> 00:13:52.110
  • YOU INTO DESTINY.
  • 00:13:52.130 --> 00:13:53.230
  • EVEN IF YOU MADE SOME BAD DECISIONS...
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:58.050
  • UH-OH, I FEEL A BREAKTHROUGH RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:13:58.070 --> 00:14:01.060
  • IF YOU'LL JUST TRUST HIM, HE WILL REDEEM
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:04.120
  • THE BAD DECISION.
  • 00:14:04.140 --> 00:14:05.280
  • IF YOU TRUST HIM, HE WILL REDEEM WHAT LOOKS LIKE AN
  • 00:14:06.000 --> 00:14:07.230
  • IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION.
  • 00:14:07.250 --> 00:14:09.080
  • IF YOU TRUST HIM, HE WILL REDEEM THE PAIN, AND HE
  • 00:14:09.100 --> 00:14:11.280
  • WILL GIVE YOU PEACE.
  • 00:14:12.000 --> 00:14:13.210
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:14:13.230 --> 00:14:16.100
  • BUT YOU GOT TO WAIT ON HIM.
  • 00:14:16.120 --> 00:14:20.210
  • ISAIAH 40:31, I'M ABOUT TO PREACH A LITTLE AND THEN
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:23.030
  • LET Y'ALL GO HOME.
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:26.110
  • WE'LL HAVE TO PICK UP LABOR DAY PART THREE.
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:30.220
  • IT'S HARD TO WAIT.
  • 00:14:30.240 --> 00:14:33.050
  • I USED TO CATCH THE BUS TO WORK.
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:35.240
  • ANYBODY EVER HAD TO CATCH THE BUS TO WORK?
  • 00:14:35.260 --> 00:14:38.110
  • SOME OF Y'ALL LIVE IN THE SUBURBS, BUS?
  • 00:14:38.130 --> 00:14:41.000
  • WHAT IS A BUS? NOT FAMILIAR WITH THAT.
  • 00:14:41.020 --> 00:14:44.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:45.200
  • IT'S LOG, IT'S GOT WHEELS.
  • 00:14:45.220 --> 00:14:47.270
  • WE USED TO PULL THE STRING.
  • 00:14:47.290 --> 00:14:49.050
  • ANYBODY REMEMBER? LIKE DING?
  • 00:14:49.070 --> 00:14:52.030
  • WOULDN'T YOU BE MAD, HE DIDN'T STOP,
  • 00:14:52.050 --> 00:14:53.270
  • HE DIDN'T HEAR YOU.
  • 00:14:53.290 --> 00:14:55.000
  • I SAID DING DING DING!
  • 00:14:55.020 --> 00:14:57.290
  • I GOT TO WALK A WHOLE TWO BLOCKS,
  • 00:14:58.010 --> 00:14:59.050
  • AND IT'S HOT OUT HERE.
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:15:01.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:15:01.020 --> 00:15:09.160
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:11.230
  • THE BEST PART OF THE BUS RIDE WASN'T
  • 00:15:11.250 --> 00:15:13.100
  • GETTING ON THE BUS.
  • 00:15:13.120 --> 00:15:15.150
  • THE BEST PART WAS WHEN I WAS OUTSIDE LOOKING AT MY

  • WATCH, AND I KNOW WHAT THE SCHEDULE SAYS.
  • 00:15:19.210 --> 00:15:24.240
  • I START LOOKING DOWN THE STREET.
  • 00:15:24.260 --> 00:15:27.170
  • OH, I'M GETTING READY TO PREACH.
  • 00:15:27.190 --> 00:15:31.050
  • I DON'T SEE THE BUS, BUT I KNOW IT'S COMING.
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:34.190
  • [APPLAUSE]

  • I'VE WAITED.
  • 00:15:48.170 --> 00:15:49.270
  • I'VE WALKED OUT THE PROCESS.

  • I DON'T KNOW WHO THIS IS FOR, BUT YOU
  • 00:15:55.160 --> 00:15:57.090
  • NEED TO START...

  • THEIR STRENGTH.
  • 00:16:34.280 --> 00:16:36.200
  • THEY WILL MOUNT UP ON WINGS AS EAGLES.
