  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT GOD WANTS TO RENOVATE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:01:36.120 --> 00:01:39.100
  • TELL SOMEBODY RENOVATION.
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:41.010
  • BUT TO DO THAT HE HAS TO DEAL WITH YOUR MIND.
  • 00:01:41.040 --> 00:01:44.140
  • HE DOESN'T WANT YOU FOCUSED SO MUCH ON THE EXTERNAL,
  • 00:01:44.170 --> 00:01:47.270
  • WE DO THAT TOO MUCH.
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:49.140
  • LASTING CHANGES COME FROM WITHIN,
  • 00:01:49.170 --> 00:01:52.050
  • FROM A RENEWED MINDSET.
  • 00:01:52.080 --> 00:01:54.100
  • TODAY I WANNA SHARE WITH YOU SOME WISDOM IN THE WORD
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:58.230
  • THAT'S GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO DEAL WITH DECISION MAKING.
  • 00:01:58.260 --> 00:02:02.150
  • IN PARTICULAR, HOW TO AVOID THE TEMPTATION
  • 00:02:02.180 --> 00:02:05.020
  • TO MAKE CHOICES THAT DON'T LINE UP
  • 00:02:05.050 --> 00:02:07.190
  • WITH WHO YOU REALLY ARE.
  • 00:02:07.220 --> 00:02:09.130
  • DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES YOU AND I HAVE WASTED TIME
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:11.260
  • MAKING DECISIONS THAT AREN'T IN LINE WITH OUR PURPOSE,
  • 00:02:11.290 --> 00:02:15.020
  • OUR CALLING, OR OUR DESTINY?
  • 00:02:15.050 --> 00:02:17.100
  • GOD DOESN'T WANT US WASTING
  • 00:02:17.130 --> 00:02:18.150
  • ANOTHER SECOND OF THIS PRECIOUS THING CALLED LIFE,
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:21.220
  • WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE, THE WRONG PLACES,
  • 00:02:21.250 --> 00:02:24.110
  • AND THE WRONG PLANS.
  • 00:02:24.140 --> 00:02:26.040
  • THE GREATEST WORK GOD IS DOING IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:02:26.070 --> 00:02:28.070
  • IS GOING ON WITHIN YOU.
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:30.050
  • GOD WANT'S YOU FULL OF THE MANY PROMISES HE'S GIVING YOU
  • 00:02:30.080 --> 00:02:34.020
  • AS A NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVER.
  • 00:02:34.050 --> 00:02:36.030
  • SO FULL THAT EVENTUALLY THE POOL TOWARDS THE OLD
  • 00:02:36.060 --> 00:02:39.140
  • THOUGHT PATTERNS AND LIFESTYLE LOOSE THEIR HOLD ON YOU.
  • 00:02:39.170 --> 00:02:42.230
  • YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE AN APPETITE FOR IT ANYMORE, HALLELUJAH!
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:45.290
  • THAT CAN BE A REALITY IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:02:46.020 --> 00:02:48.250
  • AND I WANNA SHOW YOU HOW.
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:50.160

  • AND TALK ABOUT A CHANGED MIND.
  • 00:02:55.150 --> 00:02:57.280
  • SO PRESS THAT RED DVR BUTTON,
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:02:59.260
  • GO AHEAD AND CALL EVERYBODY YOU KNOW, TELL THEM
  • 00:02:59.290 --> 00:03:01.250
  • GIRL, JOHN GRAY HE GOT A LEATHER JACKET ON GIRL,
  • 00:03:01.280 --> 00:03:04.040
  • I THINK IT FITS.
  • 00:03:04.070 --> 00:03:05.070
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THEY MADE LEATHER THAT BIG.
  • 00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:07.090
  • WELL THEY DO.
  • 00:03:07.120 --> 00:03:08.130
  • SO LETS LOCK IN AND LET'S GET IN TO THE WORD.
  • 00:03:08.160 --> 00:03:11.200
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN EDIFIED
  • 00:03:11.230 --> 00:03:14.040
  • BY "MIND GAMES" [MUMBLES] FAR, YOU GOTTEN SOME WISDOM?
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:19.130
  • IF YOU'LL DO ME A FAVOR, I WANT YOU TO GO
  • 00:03:19.160 --> 00:03:20.260
  • TO MATHEW CHAPTER FOUR.
  • 00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:22.050
  • I JUST WANT US TO BE REFRESHED
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:24.070
  • WITH OUR FOUNDATIONAL SCRIPTURE FOR THIS SERIES,
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:29.100
  • AND THEN I WILL SHARE WITH YOU WHAT THE LORD
  • 00:03:29.130 --> 00:03:31.120
  • HAS PUT ON MY HEART FOR TONIGHT.
  • 00:03:31.150 --> 00:03:33.150
  • MATHEW CHAPTER FOUR VERSE ONE, I'M READING
  • 00:03:33.180 --> 00:03:35.290
  • FROM THE NEW KING JAMES VERSION.
  • 00:03:36.020 --> 00:03:38.010
  • THEN JESUS WAS LED UP BY THE SPIRIT INTO THE WILDERNESS
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:40.240
  • TO BE TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL.
  • 00:03:40.270 --> 00:03:42.240
  • AND WHEN HE HAD FASTED FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS,
  • 00:03:42.270 --> 00:03:45.080
  • AFTERWARD HE WAS HUNGRY.
  • 00:03:45.110 --> 00:03:47.210
  • NOW WHEN THE TEMPTER CAME TO HIM, HE SAID,
  • 00:03:47.240 --> 00:03:51.030
  • "IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:54.050
  • COMMAND THAT THESE STONES BECOME BREAD."
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:56.080
  • NOW WE GONNA PAUSE RIGHT THERE
  • 00:03:56.110 --> 00:03:58.090
  • BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO WRITE DOWN IF YOU'RE TAKING NOTES,
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:04:01.250
  • OR IF YOU'RE PUTTING IT IN A TABLET OR A SMART PHONE,
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:04.150
  • I JUST WANT YOU TO WRITE DOWN IF.
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:08.180
  • THAT LITTLE WORD CAN CHANGE A WHOLE LOTTA THINGS,
  • 00:04:08.210 --> 00:04:14.160
  • BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE,
  • 00:04:14.190 --> 00:04:17.090
  • AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO YOU SERVE,
  • 00:04:17.120 --> 00:04:19.230
  • AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO CREATED YOU, YOU WILL MAKE
  • 00:04:19.260 --> 00:04:22.250
  • SOME VERY UNWISE DECISIONS.
  • 00:04:22.280 --> 00:04:26.000
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH.
  • 00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:26.250
  • - BUT IF YOU KNOW--
  • 00:04:26.280 --> 00:04:28.000
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH.
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:29.030
  • - THAT THE BLOOD HAS BEEN APPLIED TO YOUR ACCOUNT.
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:31.200
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH [CHEERING].
  • 00:04:31.230 --> 00:04:32.170
  • - YOU CARRY YOURSELF DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:04:32.200 --> 00:04:35.010
  • IF YOU REALIZE YOU'VE BEEN FORGIVEN,
  • 00:04:35.040 --> 00:04:37.190
  • AND EVEN IF YOU MESSED UP TOMORROW,
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:39.220
  • HE ALREADY PAID FOR IT YESTERYEAR.
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:42.040
  • HE PAID FOR IT 2000 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:04:42.070 --> 00:04:44.120
  • IF YOU CAN GET THIS IN YOUR SPIRIT IT WILL CAUSE YOU
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:47.210
  • TO BE FREE FROM THE SPIRIT OF CONDEMNATION,
  • 00:04:47.240 --> 00:04:49.230
  • WHICH IS ONE OF THE TOOLS THAT THE ENEMY LOVES TO USE
  • 00:04:49.260 --> 00:04:53.070
  • ON THE CHILDREN OF GOD TO MAKE YOU ASHAMED TO APPROACH GOD
  • 00:04:53.100 --> 00:04:58.000
  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER, BECAUSE HE MAKES YOU THINK
  • 00:04:58.030 --> 00:05:00.220
  • HE DOESN'T WANT YOU.
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:02.070
  • AND HE'S MAD BECAUSE GOD DOES WANT YOU,
  • 00:05:02.100 --> 00:05:04.250
  • BUT HE DON'T WANT HIM.
  • 00:05:04.280 --> 00:05:06.260
  • -[CONGREGATION] YES.
  • 00:05:06.290 --> 00:05:07.290
  • - THE ENEMY DOESN'T GET THE CHANCES THAT WE GET,
  • 00:05:08.020 --> 00:05:10.070
  • AND SO HE'S JEALOUS, LOW-LOW HATER.
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:13.240
  • SITTING UP UNDER YOUR FEET, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT
  • 00:05:13.270 --> 00:05:16.010
  • HE BRUISED OUR HEEL, BUT WE BRUISED HIS HEAD.
  • 00:05:16.040 --> 00:05:21.030
  • -[WOMAN] YEAH.
  • 00:05:21.060 --> 00:05:22.110
  • - THAT MEANS WE CRUSHED HIM, BUT HE'LL NIP AT YOUR HEELS.
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:23.270
  • BUT NOTICE WHERE HE'S AT, HE'S AT YOUR HEELS.
  • 00:05:24.000 --> 00:05:25.150
  • SO, EVERY NOW AND THEN YOU JUST NEED TO KICK YOUR HEELS
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:28.000
  • AND JUST STUMP ON THE FLOOR AND JUST REMIND THE ENEMY
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:30.110
  • THAT YOU ARE UNDER MY FEET.
  • 00:05:30.140 --> 00:05:32.030
  • THAT'S WHERE YOU BELONG, THAT'S WHERE YOU'LL REMAIN.
  • 00:05:32.060 --> 00:05:35.070
  • WE DON'T HAVE FACE TO FACE CONVERSATIONS WITH DEVILS.
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:38.020
  • THEY ARE NOT ON YOUR LEVEL.
  • 00:05:38.050 --> 00:05:42.030
  • WANNA TALK TO THE DEVIL?
  • 00:05:42.060 --> 00:05:43.150
  • JUST PUT A POSTED NOTE
  • 00:05:43.180 --> 00:05:44.160
  • ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SHOE,
  • 00:05:44.190 --> 00:05:49.170
  • IF YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:54.260
  • AND THEN I WANT YOU TO GO TO LUKE 15.
  • 00:05:54.290 --> 00:06:02.210
  • LUKE 15, AND I'M STARTING AT THE 13TH VERSE.
  • 00:06:02.240 --> 00:06:05.150
  • THIS IS A STORY THAT'S VERY FAMILIAR TO MANY PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:05.180 --> 00:06:08.090
  • BUT I DON'T ASSUME THAT EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:12.210
  • AND OUT OF RESPECT I WANNA SHARE BRIEFLY
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:15.040
  • WHAT THIS STORY IS ABOUT.
  • 00:06:15.070 --> 00:06:16.090
  • THIS IS A STORY ABOUT A FATHER AND HIS TWO SONS,
  • 00:06:16.120 --> 00:06:20.000
  • A FATHER WHO IS WEALTHY AND AT THE TIME OF HIS PASSING
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:25.030
  • HIS LIVELIHOOD WOULD BE DIVIDED BETWEEN HIS TWO SONS.
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:29.080
  • IN THIS PARTICULAR CULTURE
  • 00:06:29.110 --> 00:06:31.000
  • THE OLDER SON WOULD GET A DOUBLE PORTION.
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:33.130
  • THE YOUNGER SON WOULD GET SOMETHING, BUT IT WOULDN'T BE
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:35.290
  • ON THE SAME LEVEL AS THE OLDER BOY.
  • 00:06:36.020 --> 00:06:38.290
  • HAVING SAID THAT, THE YOUNGER SON GOES TO THE FATHER
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:41.100
  • WHILE HE IS STILL ALIVE ASKING FOR HIS INHERITANCE.
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:44.190
  • NOW THIS IS VERY DISRESPECTFUL IN THIS CULTURE
  • 00:06:44.220 --> 00:06:47.260
  • TO ASK A LIVING PARENT TO GIVE
  • 00:06:47.290 --> 00:06:50.260
  • WHAT WOULD NORMALLY COME AFTER DEATH.
  • 00:06:50.290 --> 00:06:53.220
  • SOMEHOW THE FATHER DECIDED TO DO IT, AND WE FIND OURSELVES
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:57.200
  • IN THE 13TH VERSE, AND IT SAYS,
  • 00:06:57.230 --> 00:06:59.140
  • AND NOT MANY DAYS AFTER THE YOUNGER SON
  • 00:06:59.170 --> 00:07:01.080
  • GATHERED ALL TOGETHER, JOURNEYED TO A FAR COUNTRY,
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:04.050
  • AND THERE WASTED HIS POSSESSIONS WITH PRODIGAL LIVING.
  • 00:07:04.080 --> 00:07:08.250
  • BUT WHEN HE HAD SPENT ALL, THERE AROSE A SEVERE FAMINE
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:11.200
  • IN THAT LAND, AND HE BEGAN TO BE IN WANT.
  • 00:07:11.230 --> 00:07:15.050
  • THEN HE WENT AND JOINED HIMSELF
  • 00:07:15.080 --> 00:07:16.110
  • TO A CITIZEN OF THAT COUNTRY, AND HE SENT HIM
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:19.110
  • INTO HIS FIELD TO FEED SWINE.
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:22.070
  • AND HE WOULD GLADLY HAVE FILLED HIS STOMACH
  • 00:07:22.100 --> 00:07:23.290
  • WITH THE PODS THAT THE SWINE ATE,
  • 00:07:24.020 --> 00:07:26.020
  • AND NO ONE GAVE HIM ANYTHING.
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:28.170
  • BUT WHEN HE CAME TO HIMSELF, NOW I FEEL LIKE PREACHING,
  • 00:07:28.200 --> 00:07:34.030
  • I'M TRYING TO TEACH, BUT I FEEL THE PREACH
  • 00:07:34.060 --> 00:07:36.230
  • SNEAKING UP MY SHOULDERS.
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:40.040
  • IT'S CREEPING UP THERE, LET ME FINISH THIS SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:43.060
  • BUT WHEN HE CAME TO HIMSELF, HE SAID,
  • 00:07:43.090 --> 00:07:46.170
  • "HOW MANY OF MY FATHER'S HIRED SERVANTS HAVE BREAD
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:49.090
  • ENOUGH AND TO SPARE, AND I'M SITTING HERE DYING OF HUNGER,
  • 00:07:49.120 --> 00:07:52.220
  • I PERISH OF HUNGER!
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:54.250
  • I WILL ARISE AND GO TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE."
  • 00:07:54.280 --> 00:07:56.150
  • AND I'LL SAY TO HIM, "FATHER, I'VE SINNED AGAINST HEAVEN
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:58.200
  • AND BEFORE YOU.
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:07:59.210
  • I'M NO LONGER WORTHY TO BE CALLED YOUR SON.
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:01.160
  • MAKE ME LIKE ON OF YOUR HIRED SERVANTS."
  • 00:08:01.190 --> 00:08:04.140
  • I WANT YOU TO WRITE DOWN TONIGHT'S SUB-HEADING,
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:08.060
  • BECAUSE IT'S "MIND GAMES" PART THREE, I CHANGED MY MIND.
  • 00:08:08.090 --> 00:08:15.090
  • LOOK AT SOMEBODY AND TELL THEM, I CHANGED MY MIND.
  • 00:08:15.120 --> 00:08:17.170
  • -[CONGREGATION] I CHANGED MY MIND.
  • 00:08:17.200 --> 00:08:19.250
  • - YOU KNOW IN TODAY'S SOCIETY, YOUR WORD IS YOUR BOND.
  • 00:08:19.280 --> 00:08:25.090
  • YOU NEED JUST STICK TO YOUR WORD.
  • 00:08:25.120 --> 00:08:28.230
  • BUT THEY'RE TIMES WHEN THE WORD YOU GAVE
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:31.070
  • IS NOT A WISE WORD FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:33.290
  • MANY OF US HAVE MADE COMMITMENTS TO THINGS
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:36.140
  • AND TO PEOPLE THAT WE WISHED WE COULD CHANGE.
  • 00:08:36.170 --> 00:08:41.210
  • -[WOMAN] COME ON NOW.
  • 00:08:41.240 --> 00:08:43.010
  • - THERE IS ONE PERSON SAYING COME ON NOW
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:44.200
  • AND I HOPE WHOEVER IT IS, IS NOT NEXT TO YOU AND YOU SAY,
  • 00:08:44.230 --> 00:08:48.080
  • "COME ON NOW, HE TALKING ABOUT YOU, HE TALKING ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:08:48.110 --> 00:08:51.260
  • I WISH I'D NEVER MET YOU, I'M JUST SAYING."
  • 00:08:51.290 --> 00:09:00.130
  • CHANGING YOUR MIND IS NOT ALWAYS CELEBRATED,
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:02.280
  • IT'S OFTEN FROWNED UPON
  • 00:09:03.010 --> 00:09:04.250
  • BECAUSE IT THROWS PEOPLE'S PLANS OFF.
  • 00:09:04.280 --> 00:09:07.130
  • BUT I NEED YOU TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:08.220
  • YOU HAVE A PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED DESTINY--
  • 00:09:08.250 --> 00:09:11.170
  • -[CONGREGATION] YES.
  • 00:09:11.200 --> 00:09:12.260
  • - AND THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT YOU COMMITTED YOURSELF TO
  • 00:09:12.290 --> 00:09:15.090
  • IN IMMATURITY AND OBLIGATED YOURSELF TO OUT OF DESPERATION
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:19.090
  • THAT GOD'S ABOUT TO FREE YOU FROM TONIGHT
  • 00:09:19.120 --> 00:09:21.200
  • SO YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND MOVE INTO THE DIRECTION
  • 00:09:21.230 --> 00:09:23.280
  • AND INTO THE PLACE THAT GOD HAS ESTABLISHED FOR YOU,
  • 00:09:24.010 --> 00:09:27.290
  • AND THAT IS SOMETHING WORTH GETTING EXCITED ABOUT.
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:33.050
  • TELL SOMEBODY I CHANGED MY MIND.
  • 00:09:33.080 --> 00:09:34.270
  • -[CONGREGATION] I CHANGED MY MIND.
  • 00:09:35.000 --> 00:09:37.250
  • - EVERY WEEK I BATTLE.
  • 00:09:37.280 --> 00:09:40.030
  • EVERY TIME I'M ASKED TO PREACH, THE INNER ME
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:42.170
  • ALWAYS WHISPERS INTO MY MIND,
  • 00:09:42.200 --> 00:09:44.290
  • YOU KNOW YOU DON'T DESERVE TO BE HERE.
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:47.150
  • YOU'RE NOT WORTHY.
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:49.040
  • AND MY WIFE WILL BE MY WITNESS, I'M LIKE, JUST PRAY FOR ME.
  • 00:09:49.070 --> 00:09:51.230
  • I'M JUST REALLY BATTLING, I JUST FEEL SO INADEQUATE,
  • 00:09:51.260 --> 00:09:54.180
  • AND FOR SOME REASON, JUST TODAY I WAS SITTING AT THE TABLE
  • 00:09:54.210 --> 00:09:59.060
  • IN MY HOME AND I WAS PREPARING, AND IT WAS SILENT
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:01.100
  • 'CAUSE BOTH OF THE KIDS WERE GONE, THANK YOU JESUS,
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:03.240
  • BABY JESUS, ROMAN JESUS, TEENAGE JESUS,
  • 00:10:03.270 --> 00:10:07.090
  • WHICHEVER ONE GOT MY KIDS OUT THE HOUSE, THANK YOU.
  • 00:10:07.120 --> 00:10:15.060
  • SITTING AT THE TABLE, AND THAT VOICE
  • 00:10:15.090 --> 00:10:19.210
  • THAT COMES EVERY SINGLE TIME, THAT I'M ABOUT TO GO
  • 00:10:19.240 --> 00:10:22.240
  • RUN AFTER GOD, AND THE CALLING OF MY LIFE CREPT UP AGAIN
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:26.030
  • AND I HAD A CHOICE TO MAKE.
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:28.280
  • DO I SEAT HERE AND HAVE A CONVERSATION
  • 00:10:29.010 --> 00:10:31.050
  • WITH A DEFEATED ENEMY?
  • 00:10:31.080 --> 00:10:33.140
  • OR DO I TAKE AUTHORITY LIKE I'VE BEEN TELLING OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:10:33.170 --> 00:10:36.060
  • AND PREACHING ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, AND ALL OVER THE WORLD?
  • 00:10:36.090 --> 00:10:39.240
  • NO [BACKGROUND SOUND DROWNS THE SPEAKER],
  • 00:10:39.270 --> 00:10:40.270
  • FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT I CAN REALLY REMEMBER
  • 00:10:41.000 --> 00:10:42.280
  • IN SOMETIME AS HE WAS TALKING, I SAID SHUT UP!
  • 00:10:43.010 --> 00:10:48.080
  • -[CONGREGATION] AMEN.
  • 00:10:48.110 --> 00:10:49.100
  • - I AM WORTHY BECAUSE MY FATHER MADE ME WORTHY,
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:52.250
  • I DIDN'T CALL MYSELF, HE CALLED ME.
  • 00:10:52.280 --> 00:10:55.040
  • STOP TALKING TO ME.
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:59.290
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN YOU NEED TO GET BOLD
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:02.150
  • AND STOP LETTING YOUR ENEMY COME IN YOUR HOUSE.
  • 00:11:02.180 --> 00:11:04.230
  • HE IS NOT INVITED INTO YOUR MIND.
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:07.000
  • HE IS NOT INVITED INTO YOUR HEART.
  • 00:11:07.030 --> 00:11:09.090
  • HE DOES NOT HAVE AUTHORITY, AND YOU NEED TO TAKE AUTHORITY
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:12.080
  • WITH THE WORDS OF YOUR MOUTH, AND THE WORD OF SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:15.090
  • AND LET THE ENEMY KNOW HE IS NO LONGER WELCOMED
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:18.050
  • TO TELL YOU WHAT HE THINKS ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:11:18.080 --> 00:11:20.230
  • HIS OPINION OF YOU DOESN'T MATTER.
  • 00:11:20.260 --> 00:11:25.120
  • FOUR-SECOND PRAISE BREAK.
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:29.190
  • -[ANNOUNCER] IT'S BEEN SAID
  • 00:11:29.220 --> 00:11:30.250
  • THAT SOME OF THE TOUGHEST BATTLES WE FACE IN LIFE
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:32.190
  • ARE FOUGHT IN THE MIND.
  • 00:11:32.220 --> 00:11:34.120
  • THE ENEMY SECRETLY PLAYS HIS GAMES TO SOW DOUBT,
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:37.140
  • STEAL YOUR JOY, AND BURDEN YOUR SOUL.
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:40.200
  • BUT GOD HAS DIVINE BATTLE PLANS FOR YOU.
  • 00:11:40.230 --> 00:11:43.130

  • CALL, CLICK, OR WRITE TO TBN TODAY.
  • 00:12:29.140 --> 00:12:39.190
  • - THE ENEMY WILL ALWAYS COME TO EMPTY PLACES.
  • 00:12:39.220 --> 00:12:44.290
  • HE LOOKS FOR EMPTY PLACES.
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:47.100
  • ANYTHING IN YOU THAT IS NOT FILLED, OR FULFILLED,
  • 00:12:47.130 --> 00:12:50.280
  • HE'LL SPEAK TO IT AND SEE IF YOU MAKE
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:53.030
  • AN UNWISE DECISION IN THAT AREA.
  • 00:12:53.060 --> 00:12:56.150
  • JESUS WAS FASTING FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
  • 00:12:56.180 --> 00:12:59.130
  • FROM FOOD AND WATER, THIS WAS A SUPERNATURAL FAST.
  • 00:12:59.160 --> 00:13:03.040
  • ONLY THE HOLY SPIRIT COULD HAVE KEPT JESUS
  • 00:13:03.070 --> 00:13:05.200
  • IN THE WILDERNESS, WHICH IS WHY IT SAYS,
  • 00:13:05.230 --> 00:13:07.090
  • HE WAS LED UP BY THE SPIRIT TO BE TEMPTED OF THE DEVIL.
  • 00:13:07.120 --> 00:13:11.280
  • AND SO HE WAS BEING LED UP.
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:13.260
  • SOMETIMES WHEN GOD WANTS TO ELEVATE YOU, HE WILL LEAD YOU
  • 00:13:13.290 --> 00:13:17.190
  • INTO A WILDERNESS PLACE.
  • 00:13:17.220 --> 00:13:20.190
  • I'M TRYING TO HELP SOMEBODY IN HERE BECAUSE YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:13:20.220 --> 00:13:22.290
  • LORD I'M READY FOR THE NEXT LEVEL.
  • 00:13:23.020 --> 00:13:24.180
  • HE'S LIKE, YEAH, WELCOME!
  • 00:13:24.210 --> 00:13:28.220
  • I DON'T SEE NOTHING, IT'S WILDERNESS.
  • 00:13:28.250 --> 00:13:29.290
  • EXACTLY, BECAUSE THAT'S HOW I ELEVATE MY CHILDREN.
  • 00:13:30.020 --> 00:13:33.110
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH.
  • 00:13:33.140 --> 00:13:36.020
  • - IF WE'RE TO BE LIKE JESUS, THEN WE MUST ALSO
  • 00:13:36.050 --> 00:13:38.020
  • EMBRACE WILDERNESS MOMENTS.
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:40.260
  • EVERYTHING IS NOT SMOOTH SAILING.
  • 00:13:40.290 --> 00:13:42.090
  • EVERYTHING IS NOT GONNA BE IN THE SPIRITUAL HOV LANE.
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:45.110
  • WHILE EVERYBODY ELSE IS CRAWLING SLOW,
  • 00:13:45.140 --> 00:13:47.130
  • AND YOU JUST MOVING FAST, NO, EVERY NOW AND THEN
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:49.150
  • YOU GONNA HAVE TO BE IN THE TRAFFIC OF HUMANITY.
  • 00:13:49.180 --> 00:13:52.110
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN YOU GONNA HAVE TO GET DIRTY
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:54.130
  • FROM SOME DECISIONS YOU MADE, AND SOME THINGS
  • 00:13:54.160 --> 00:13:56.150
  • THAT YOU'RE WALKING THROUGH,
  • 00:13:56.180 --> 00:13:57.270
  • BECAUSE THAT'S THE NATURE OF LIFE.
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:14:00.040
  • BUT AS YOU CRAWL, AND AS YOU DRIVE, START STOP,
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:04.050
  • START STOP, EVENTUALLY AT SOME POINT YOU'RE GONNA HIT
  • 00:14:04.080 --> 00:14:07.090
  • AN OPEN SPACE, AND YOU'RE GONNA BE ABLE TO DRIVE
  • 00:14:07.120 --> 00:14:10.080
  • INTO THE PLACE THAT GOD HAS PREPARED.
  • 00:14:10.110 --> 00:14:13.020
  • I FEEL THE HOLY GHOST.
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:15.030
  • SOMEBODY'S ABOUT TO GET OUT OF THE TRAFFIC JAM.
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:18.280
  • I SAID, SOMEBODY'S ABOUT TO GET OUT THE TRAFFIC JAM.
  • 00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:22.210
  • I DARE YOU TO JUST START ROLLING.
  • 00:14:22.240 --> 00:14:24.250
  • I DARE YOU TO RIDE.
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:28.030
  • [CHEERING OF THE CONGREGATION DROWNS THE SPEAKER].
  • 00:14:28.060 --> 00:14:47.130
  • THE ENEMY WILL ALWAYS GRAB FOR ANY UNFULFILLED
  • 00:14:47.160 --> 00:14:51.240
  • OR EMPTY PLACE.
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:54.120
  • JUST DO A SPOT CHECK OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:14:54.150 --> 00:14:57.010
  • NOTICE SOME OF THE DECISIONS YOU AND I HAVE MADE,
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:14:59.140
  • SOME OF THE WORST DECISIONS WE MADE
  • 00:14:59.170 --> 00:15:02.160
  • WE'RE BASED ON UNFULFILLED PLACE.
  • 00:15:02.190 --> 00:15:07.030
  • WE WERE LONELY.
  • 00:15:07.060 --> 00:15:08.200
  • WE THOUGHT FILLING THE LONELINESS WITH SOMEONE
  • 00:15:08.230 --> 00:15:11.230
  • WHO WAS LESS WHAT WE'VE BEEN PRAYING FOR, WAS OKAY.
  • 00:15:11.260 --> 00:15:17.040
  • I GOT ONE PERSON THAT SAID AMEN,
  • 00:15:17.070 --> 00:15:18.140
  • THE REST OF Y'ALL ARE LIKE, I WANNA SAY AMEN BUT THEY...
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:29.220
  • YOU CAN'T EVEN CLAP [LAUGHS].
  • 00:15:29.250 --> 00:15:42.270
  • HERE'S HOW YOU KEEP HUNGER AT A DISTANCE.
  • 00:15:43.000 --> 00:15:45.200
  • AND DON'T ALLOW HUNGER TO CAUSE YOU TO MAKE BAD DECISIONS.
  • 00:15:45.230 --> 00:15:49.040
  • THREE THINGS, I WANT YOU TO WRITE THESE DOWN.
  • 00:15:49.070 --> 00:15:50.190
  • NUMBER ONE, YOU GOTTA REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:54.190
  • BECAUSE AN UNFULFILLED PLACE DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:15:54.220 --> 00:15:58.260
  • GOD HAS FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:00.250
  • IT JUST MEANS THAT HE LOVES YOU SO MUCH,
  • 00:16:00.280 --> 00:16:02.290
  • THAT WHATEVER HE'S PREPARING TAKES A LITTLE MORE TIME.
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:09.080
  • I'M TRYING TO HELP THEM PASTOR NICK,
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:10.150
  • I'M TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:16:10.180 --> 00:16:12.160
  • THAT EVEN THOUGH WE LIVE IN A MICROWAVE SOCIETY,
  • 00:16:12.190 --> 00:16:15.090
  • IN A CONVECTION OVEN SOCIETY, AND WE WANT EVERYTHING FAST
  • 00:16:15.120 --> 00:16:18.220
  • AND DEFROSTED, I KNOW THAT'S HOW WE LIKE OUR FOOD TODAY,
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:22.070
  • BUT GOD SLOW COOKS.
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:25.290
  • HE STILL PUTS INGREDIENTS WITH HIS HANDS.
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:28.090
  • THAT'S HOW HE CREATED ADAM.
  • 00:16:28.120 --> 00:16:30.110
  • THAT'S HOW HE CREATED EVE.
  • 00:16:30.140 --> 00:16:32.040
  • HE TOOK A BONE AND HE FORMED HER FROM THE SIDE OF THE MAN,
  • 00:16:32.070 --> 00:16:36.010
  • AND HE TOOK HIS TIME.
  • 00:16:36.040 --> 00:16:37.080
  • AND BECAUSE HE DIDN'T WANNA BE INTERRUPTED,
  • 00:16:37.110 --> 00:16:38.260
  • HE KEPT ADAM ASLEEP THROUGH THE PROCESS
  • 00:16:38.290 --> 00:16:41.160
  • BECAUSE HE DIDN'T NEED ADAM TRYING TO ADD
  • 00:16:41.190 --> 00:16:43.200
  • TO WHAT HE WAS DOING.
  • 00:16:43.230 --> 00:16:44.240
  • SO STAY SLEEP WHILE I'M MAKING HER,
  • 00:16:44.270 --> 00:16:46.250
  • AND WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR EYES SHE'S GONNA BE THERE.
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:49.180
  • AND SHE'LL BE MORE THAN WHAT YOU NEED.
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:51.190
  • SHE'LL BE EVERYTHING YOU WANT.
  • 00:16:51.220 --> 00:16:53.170
  • SOMEBODY GIVE A PRAISE IN HERE.
  • 00:16:53.200 --> 00:17:04.240
  • YOU GOTTA REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM.
  • 00:17:04.270 --> 00:17:06.040
  • JEREMIAH ONE AND FIVE, JEREMIAH ONE AND FIVE.
  • 00:17:06.070 --> 00:17:11.010
  • GOD SAYS TO JEREMIAH, BUT IT IS ALSO
  • 00:17:11.040 --> 00:17:13.050
  • A PART INTO YOUR LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:17:13.080 --> 00:17:14.280
  • BEFORE I FORMED YOU I THE WOMB I KNEW YOU.
  • 00:17:15.010 --> 00:17:17.030
  • THAT WORD KNEW IS AN INTIMATE PLACE OF EXCHANGE.
  • 00:17:17.060 --> 00:17:21.090
  • THERE WAS A TIME WHEN GOD KNEW YOU, AND YOU WERE KNOWN
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:24.220
  • BY GOD, AND YOU KNEW GOD.
  • 00:17:24.250 --> 00:17:26.050
  • THERE WAS A CONNECTION.
  • 00:17:26.080 --> 00:17:28.010
  • I KNEW YOU BEFORE YOU WERE BORN, I SANCTIFIED YOU.
  • 00:17:28.040 --> 00:17:31.220
  • YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE BEEN SET APART,
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:34.270
  • AND YOU'VE ALREADY BEEN GIVEN A PURPOSE
  • 00:17:35.000 --> 00:17:37.020
  • BEFORE YOU EVER GOT HERE.
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:38.190
  • SO STOP RUNNING AROUND WAITING FOR SOMEBODY ELSE
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:41.060
  • TO TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE, AND HOPING SOMEBODY TELLS YOU
  • 00:17:41.090 --> 00:17:44.090
  • WHAT YOU CAN DO.
  • 00:17:44.120 --> 00:17:45.200
  • YOU DON'T NEED PERMISSION TO BE AMAZING.
  • 00:17:45.230 --> 00:17:48.100
  • YOU DON'T NEED PERMISSION TO BE GREAT.
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:50.190
  • START LIVING LIFE WITHOUT PERMISSION.
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:52.240
  • GO AHEAD AND BE GREAT WITHOUT PERMISSION, GO AHEAD.
  • 00:17:52.270 --> 00:17:55.120
  • IF HE DOESN'T TELL YOU HOW AMAZING YOU ARE HONEY,
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:58.050
  • TELL HIM TONIGHT, PASTOR JOHN SAID THAT I CAN GIVE YOU
  • 00:17:58.080 --> 00:18:01.200
  • THE DEUCES BECAUSE I DON'T NEED YOU, AND I'M NOT WAITING
  • 00:18:01.230 --> 00:18:05.100
  • ON YOU TO TELL ME HOW GOOD I AM.
  • 00:18:05.130 --> 00:18:07.250
  • AND I'M NOT GONNA BE MANIPULATED IN MY MIND
  • 00:18:07.280 --> 00:18:10.200
  • TO TAKE LESS THAN WHAT I DESERVE.
  • 00:18:10.230 --> 00:18:20.250
  • NUMBER TWO, REMEMBER WHO YOU CAME FROM.
  • 00:18:20.280 --> 00:18:24.110
  • NOT WHERE, 'CAUSE YOU REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM.
  • 00:18:24.140 --> 00:18:27.030
  • NOW REMEMBER WHO YOU CAME FROM.
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:29.210
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 5:1, FOR WE KNOW THAT IF OUR EARTHLY HOUSE,
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:32.270
  • THIS TENT IS DESTROYED, WE HAVE A BUILDING FROM GOD,
  • 00:18:33.000 --> 00:18:35.220
  • A HOUSE NOT MADE WITH HANDS, ETERNAL IN THE HEAVENS.
  • 00:18:35.250 --> 00:18:40.210
  • SEE, I KNOW WHO I CAME FROM.
  • 00:18:40.240 --> 00:18:43.120
  • YES I HAVE EARTHLY PARENTS, BUT I AM NOT THEIR CREATION,
  • 00:18:43.150 --> 00:18:49.240
  • I AM GOD'S CREATION, AND HE USED THEM AS THE VESSELS
  • 00:18:49.270 --> 00:18:53.030
  • TO BRING ME HERE.
  • 00:18:53.060 --> 00:18:54.100
  • BUT I CAME FROM GOD.
  • 00:18:54.130 --> 00:18:56.160
  • I KNOW WHO I CAME FROM.
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:18:58.150
  • AND WHO YOU COME FROM DESCRIBES YOUR VALUE.
  • 00:18:58.180 --> 00:19:01.250
  • PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT RIGHT NOW, WHAT'S HIS NAME OVER THERE
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:04.270
  • PRINCE WILLIAM, HE'S GOT TWO KIDS, AND ONE ON THE WAY.
  • 00:19:05.000 --> 00:19:08.290
  • ONE OF THEM IS A LITTLE GIRL, ONE OF THEM IS A LITTLE BOY.
  • 00:19:09.020 --> 00:19:11.040
  • LITTLE BOY WILL BE THE KING OF ENGLAND ONE DAY.
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:14.240
  • RIGHT NOW HE'S RICH.
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:16.230
  • TWO AND RICH, DO YOU HEAR ME?
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:21.050
  • PEOPLE JUST WAITING TO DO WHATEVER HE SAYS, HE'S
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:24.080
  • GOO GOO GAGA, YOU HEARD HIM.
  • 00:19:24.110 --> 00:19:26.000
  • DO WHAT HE SAYS RIGHT AWAY, SPOT ON.
  • 00:19:26.030 --> 00:19:32.080
  • WHY?
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:33.100
  • BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT IF THE PRINCE SPEAKS,
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:36.150
  • AND SOMEBODY DOESN'T MOVE, THEN THE KING'S GONNA BE UPSET.
  • 00:19:36.180 --> 00:19:40.290
  • I DON'T KNOW WHO THIS IS FOR, BUT YOU ARE NOT A PEASANT.
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:45.190
  • YOU ARE ROYALTY.
  • 00:19:45.220 --> 00:19:47.040
  • AND WHEN YOU SPEAK, IF THINGS DON'T START SHIFTING
  • 00:19:47.070 --> 00:19:50.080
  • IN YOUR FAVOR, YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS ABOUT TO COME DOWN
  • 00:19:50.110 --> 00:19:52.260
  • AND SEE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:55.160
  • I NEED SOMEBODY TO GET EXCITED IN HERE.
  • 00:19:55.190 --> 00:19:57.280
  • YOU BETTER KNOW WHO YOU CAME FROM.
  • 00:19:58.010 --> 00:20:00.150
  • YOU CAME FROM YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER, AND HE DOES NOT MESS
  • 00:20:00.180 --> 00:20:03.190
  • AROUND WHEN IT COMES TO THE PROTECTION, AND THE JOY,
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:07.110
  • AND THE PEACE, AND THE COMFORT OF HIS CHILDREN.
  • 00:20:07.140 --> 00:20:10.120
  • -[CONGREGATION] YEAH.
  • 00:20:10.150 --> 00:20:13.240
  • - I'M PREACHING IN HERE.
  • 00:20:13.270 --> 00:20:18.230
  • NUMBER THREE, REMEMBER WHY YOU CAME.
  • 00:20:18.260 --> 00:20:22.150
  • YOU DIDN'T GET HERE ON YOUR OWN.
  • 00:20:22.180 --> 00:20:24.160
  • YOU'RE NOT JUST MOSSING ON THROUGH LIFE
  • 00:20:24.190 --> 00:20:27.130
  • AND JUST WALKING AROUND WITH NO PURPOSE.
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:29.210
  • [MUMBLES] GUESS I MOVE TO HOUSTON.
  • 00:20:29.240 --> 00:20:33.140
  • REALLY KNOW WHAT TO DO, I GUESS I FILL OUT SOME APPLICATIONS
  • 00:20:33.170 --> 00:20:37.040
  • I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:20:37.070 --> 00:20:39.210
  • I HEARD ABOUT THAT [MUMBLES] THAT LAKEWOOD,
  • 00:20:39.240 --> 00:20:41.160
  • I'LL GO OVER THERE [BACKGROUND SOUND DROWNS THE SPEAKER]
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:43.060
  • AND GET OLD PASTOR JOHN VICTORY, I DON'T...
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:45.150
  • NO, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, YOU DIDN'T [LAUGHS],
  • 00:20:45.180 --> 00:20:49.140
  • STOP MAKING ME LAUGH.
  • 00:20:49.170 --> 00:20:51.230
  • YOU DIDN'T ACCIDENTALLY COME INTO THIS PLACE.
  • 00:20:51.260 --> 00:20:54.260
  • YOU DIDN'T ACCIDENTALLY LOGIN IN TO THIS PLACE.
  • 00:20:54.290 --> 00:20:57.210
  • YOU WERE PURPOSED TO BE HERE BECAUSE GOD INTENDED FOR YOU
  • 00:20:57.240 --> 00:21:01.210
  • TO CONNECT WITH LIKE-MINDED BELIEVERS
  • 00:21:01.240 --> 00:21:04.160
  • SO THAT YOUR FAITH CAN BE STRENGTHENED,
  • 00:21:04.190 --> 00:21:06.210
  • BECAUSE WE ARE STRONGER WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER.
  • 00:21:06.240 --> 00:21:10.000
  • THIS IS THE POWER OF COMMUNITY.
  • 00:21:10.030 --> 00:21:12.030
  • IN A TIME WHERE EVERYONE IS STILL DIVIDED,
  • 00:21:12.060 --> 00:21:14.060
  • AND SEGREGATED, AND CUT OFF BY RACE, OR BY CLASS,
  • 00:21:14.090 --> 00:21:18.020
  • OR BY HOW MUCH MONEY YOU MAKE.
  • 00:21:18.050 --> 00:21:19.240
  • IN HERE WE GOT FOLK WHO'VE BEEN THE CHURCH ALL THEIR LIVES,
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:23.090
  • AND FOLK WHO JUST CAME TO CHURCH TONIGHT.
  • 00:21:23.120 --> 00:21:25.230
  • WE GOT EVERY RACE, EVERY BACKGROUND, ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:21:25.260 --> 00:21:28.140
  • AND THIS IS WHAT GOD WANTS.
  • 00:21:28.170 --> 00:21:31.130
  • THAT ALL OF US KNOW THAT WE ARE LOVED, WE ARE AFFIRMED,
  • 00:21:31.160 --> 00:21:35.120
  • WE ARE ACCEPTED, WE ARE APPROVED, WE ARE THE CHILDREN
  • 00:21:35.150 --> 00:21:38.280
  • OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.
  • 00:21:39.010 --> 00:21:40.190
  • I FEEL A PASTOR JOEL OSTEEN OIL ON ME.
  • 00:21:40.220 --> 00:21:49.150
  • YOU ARE HERE BECAUSE YOU HAVE A PURPOSE
  • 00:21:49.180 --> 00:21:51.290
  • THAT NO ONE ELSE CAN FULFILL.
  • 00:21:52.020 --> 00:21:55.040
  • BETTER CHECK YOUR FINGER PRINT.
  • 00:21:55.070 --> 00:21:56.280
  • THERE'S NEVER BEEN A FINGER PRINT LIKE THIS
  • 00:21:57.010 --> 00:21:58.210
  • IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:21:58.240 --> 00:22:00.100
  • YOU ARE A ONE-OFF, IRREPLACEABLE.
  • 00:22:00.130 --> 00:22:02.160
  • DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW PHENOMENAL YOU ARE?
  • 00:22:02.190 --> 00:22:05.030
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH.
  • 00:22:05.060 --> 00:22:06.220
  • EVERYTHING YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH HAS GIVEN YOU MORE VALUE
  • 00:22:06.250 --> 00:22:09.090
  • BECAUSE ANYBODY ELSE, THEY WOULDN'T HAVE MADE IT THROUGH,
  • 00:22:09.120 --> 00:22:12.030
  • BUT BECAUSE THE GRACE OF GOD IS ON YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:22:12.060 --> 00:22:15.010
  • YOU'VE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE IT THROUGH.
  • 00:22:15.040 --> 00:22:16.200
  • AND IF THE ENEMY COULDN'T TAKE YOU OUT BEFORE,
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:18.230
  • NOW HE HAS NO HOPE IN 2016.
  • 00:22:18.260 --> 00:22:25.090
  • PRAISE BREAK.
  • 00:22:25.120 --> 00:22:37.120

  • REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM.
  • 00:22:41.070 --> 00:22:45.030
  • REMEMBER WHO YOU CAME FROM, AND REMEMBER WHY YOU CAME.
  • 00:22:45.060 --> 00:22:48.100
  • YOU CAME TO FULFILL DESTINY.
  • 00:22:48.130 --> 00:22:50.270
  • YOU CAME TO FULFILL A PURPOSE.
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:53.190
  • EVERY LIFE MATTERS.
  • 00:22:53.220 --> 00:22:55.130
