  • 00:00:16.180 --> 00:00:17.130
  • We've talked in this
  • 00:00:17.130 --> 00:00:19.060
  • pretty powerful series
  • 00:00:19.060 --> 00:00:21.110
  • on the right people,
  • 00:00:21.110 --> 00:00:22.100
  • the right place,
  • 00:00:22.100 --> 00:00:22.290
  • the right plan.
  • 00:00:22.290 --> 00:00:23.270
  • Last week, we talked about
  • 00:00:23.270 --> 00:00:24.280
  • the ministry of the moth,
  • 00:00:24.280 --> 00:00:26.140
  • and how God leads us gently,
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:28.220
  • is his first choice.
  • 00:00:28.220 --> 00:00:30.200
  • But today, I want to talk to you
  • 00:00:30.200 --> 00:00:31.280
  • about secrets to finding
  • 00:00:31.280 --> 00:00:34.020
  • your purpose.
  • 00:00:34.020 --> 00:00:35.170
  • Secrets to finding
  • 00:00:35.170 --> 00:00:37.200
  • God's plan, God's purpose,
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:39.010
  • for your life.
  • 00:00:39.010 --> 00:00:41.230
  • I love this scripture
  • 00:00:41.230 --> 00:00:42.110
  • in the Old Testament that says,
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:47.050
  • "Thou, O Lord,
  • 00:00:47.050 --> 00:00:48.130
  • through Your commandments,
  • 00:00:48.130 --> 00:00:50.000
  • have made me wiser
  • 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:51.170
  • than my enemies."
  • 00:00:51.170 --> 00:00:53.200
  • That through Your Word,
  • 00:00:53.200 --> 00:00:55.090
  • You have instructed me
  • 00:00:55.090 --> 00:00:56.180
  • and made me wiser
  • 00:00:56.180 --> 00:00:58.030
  • than even my enemies.
  • 00:00:58.030 --> 00:01:00.150
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:01:00.150 --> 00:01:01.050
  • listen carefully.
  • 00:01:01.050 --> 00:01:02.270
  • If you're taking notes,
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:03.220
  • write this down.
  • 00:01:03.220 --> 00:01:05.220
  • The Word of God
  • 00:01:05.220 --> 00:01:07.110
  • is the wisdom of God,
  • 00:01:07.110 --> 00:01:09.100
  • and the wisdom of God
  • 00:01:09.100 --> 00:01:10.270
  • can make you wiser
  • 00:01:10.270 --> 00:01:12.170
  • than your enemies.
  • 00:01:12.170 --> 00:01:14.010
  • Wisdom, the Bible said
  • 00:01:14.010 --> 00:01:15.280
  • in Proverbs 4:7,
  • 00:01:15.280 --> 00:01:17.230
  • wisdom is the principal thing.
  • 00:01:17.230 --> 00:01:20.200
  • Wisdom is critical,
  • 00:01:20.200 --> 00:01:22.170
  • and what is wisdom?
  • 00:01:22.170 --> 00:01:24.050
  • The Word of God
  • 00:01:24.050 --> 00:01:25.150
  • is the wisdom of God.
  • 00:01:25.150 --> 00:01:27.180
  • To ignore the Word of God,
  • 00:01:27.180 --> 00:01:29.290
  • to not read, study,
  • 00:01:29.290 --> 00:01:31.230
  • and apply the Word of God
  • 00:01:31.230 --> 00:01:33.230
  • is to ignore the wisdom of God.
  • 00:01:33.230 --> 00:01:36.130
  • And wisdom
  • 00:01:36.130 --> 00:01:37.140
  • is the principal thing.
  • 00:01:37.140 --> 00:01:39.210
  • The Word of God
  • 00:01:39.210 --> 00:01:41.010
  • is the wisdom of God,
  • 00:01:41.010 --> 00:01:42.140
  • and wisdom is the ability
  • 00:01:42.140 --> 00:01:44.040
  • to recognize difference.
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:46.280
  • In people, the difference
  • 00:01:46.280 --> 00:01:48.130
  • in people, in opportunities,
  • 00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:50.160
  • in timing.
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:52.000
  • Wisdom is knowing
  • 00:01:52.000 --> 00:01:52.280
  • what to focus on,
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:54.050
  • what to ignore.
  • 00:01:54.050 --> 00:01:56.030
  • Boy, that was wise
  • 00:01:56.030 --> 00:01:56.260
  • to ignore that,
  • 00:01:56.260 --> 00:01:57.240
  • and focus on that.
  • 00:01:57.240 --> 00:01:58.210
  • That's wisdom.
  • 00:01:58.210 --> 00:02:00.100
  • Wisdom is recognizing people
  • 00:02:00.100 --> 00:02:02.290
  • who belong, people who don't.
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:04.250
  • It's recognizing opportunity.
  • 00:02:04.250 --> 00:02:06.260
  • How do you get
  • 00:02:06.260 --> 00:02:07.170
  • the wisdom of God,
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:08.240
  • to discern the difference
  • 00:02:08.240 --> 00:02:10.050
  • between right and wrong?
  • 00:02:10.050 --> 00:02:11.200
  • This way or that way?
  • 00:02:11.200 --> 00:02:12.270
  • How do you get that wisdom?
  • 00:02:12.270 --> 00:02:14.150
  • The wisdom of God
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:15.240
  • is the Word of God.
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:18.270
  • The purpose of wisdom is to know
  • 00:02:18.270 --> 00:02:20.130
  • who you should honor.
  • 00:02:20.130 --> 00:02:23.130
  • It's so important
  • 00:02:23.130 --> 00:02:24.100
  • that when you get
  • 00:02:24.100 --> 00:02:25.120
  • the wisdom of God.
  • 00:02:25.120 --> 00:02:26.200
  • The fool has said in his heart,
  • 00:02:26.200 --> 00:02:28.060
  • "There is no God,"
  • 00:02:28.060 --> 00:02:29.050
  • therefore, he never honors God.
  • 00:02:29.050 --> 00:02:30.230
  • But when you understand
  • 00:02:30.230 --> 00:02:32.050
  • that the beginning of wisdom
  • 00:02:32.050 --> 00:02:33.160
  • is the fear of the Lord,
  • 00:02:33.160 --> 00:02:35.020
  • or the honor of God
  • 00:02:35.020 --> 00:02:36.040
  • in your life,
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:36.290
  • then you are already
  • 00:02:36.290 --> 00:02:38.160
  • on your way to succeed.
  • 00:02:38.160 --> 00:02:40.240
  • The purpose of wisdom is to know
  • 00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:42.110
  • who you should honor.
  • 00:02:42.110 --> 00:02:43.180
  • Every sin is a sin of dishonor.
  • 00:02:45.180 --> 00:02:48.180
  • David said,
  • 00:02:48.180 --> 00:02:49.080
  • "Against thee have I sinned."
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:50.250
  • He committed adultery
  • 00:02:50.250 --> 00:02:51.230
  • with Bathsheba,
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:52.200
  • but the first one
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:53.090
  • he dishonored was God.
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:56.280
  • When you understand
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:57.200
  • that if you fail,
  • 00:02:57.200 --> 00:02:59.090
  • you can trace it back
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:00.060
  • to a person
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:01.010
  • you chose to dishonor.
  • 00:03:01.010 --> 00:03:03.180
  • If you succeed,
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:04.180
  • you can trace it back
  • 00:03:04.180 --> 00:03:05.180
  • to a person you chose to honor.
  • 00:03:08.010 --> 00:03:11.010
  • This book is God's wisdom.
  • 00:03:11.100 --> 00:03:14.100
  • 800.000 words are in the Bible.
  • 00:03:14.100 --> 00:03:17.080
  • 66 chapters,
  • 00:03:17.080 --> 00:03:18.220
  • 27 in the New Testament,
  • 00:03:18.220 --> 00:03:20.170
  • 39 in the Old Testament.
  • 00:03:20.170 --> 00:03:22.210
  • It is crammed
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:23.100
  • full of the wisdom,
  • 00:03:23.100 --> 00:03:25.020
  • and the genius of God.
  • 00:03:26.030 --> 00:03:29.030
  • This is God's Word.
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:30.090
  • The Bible said,
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:31.010
  • "The Word is a lamp
  • 00:03:31.010 --> 00:03:32.120
  • unto my feet."
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:33.210
  • If I want God's plan
  • 00:03:33.210 --> 00:03:34.170
  • for my life,
  • 00:03:34.170 --> 00:03:35.090
  • I must know this Word.
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:36.290
  • Anything you need,
  • 00:03:36.290 --> 00:03:38.130
  • if you will study this book,
  • 00:03:38.130 --> 00:03:40.180
  • find one topic and become
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:41.250
  • an expert in this book on it,
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:44.050
  • and you will not be held back.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:46.000
  • You will rise,
  • 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:46.240
  • you will go to the top.
  • 00:03:46.240 --> 00:03:48.070
  • God will make room for you.
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:51.050
  • If you're interested
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:52.010
  • in business, study business
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:53.270
  • in that book.
  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:54.190
  • Get notepads.
  • 00:03:54.190 --> 00:03:55.190
  • Show me how you study
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:57.060
  • the Word of God,
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:03:58.000
  • and I'll show you
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:03:58.210
  • how you'll have wisdom.
  • 00:03:58.210 --> 00:04:00.100
  • If you know one subject
  • 00:04:00.100 --> 00:04:01.220
  • and you're an expert in it,
  • 00:04:01.220 --> 00:04:03.120
  • and I'm telling you
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:04.150
  • that the Word of God is so full,
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:06.260
  • it's so full of amazing things.
  • 00:04:07.080 --> 00:04:10.080
  • It will give you the discernment
  • 00:04:10.080 --> 00:04:12.080
  • and the wisdom to know,
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.220
  • to decide the difference
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:15.200
  • between people.
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:17.090
  • There are people who feed
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:18.160
  • into your life,
  • 00:04:18.160 --> 00:04:19.110
  • and there are people who feed
  • 00:04:19.110 --> 00:04:20.130
  • off of your life,
  • 00:04:20.130 --> 00:04:21.170
  • and you need wisdom
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:22.090
  • to know the difference.
  • 00:04:22.090 --> 00:04:24.020
  • There are people who you --
  • 00:04:24.020 --> 00:04:25.280
  • two kinds of people
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:26.250
  • you are supposed
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:27.130
  • to let into your life.
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:28.270
  • The people you can minister to,
  • 00:04:28.270 --> 00:04:31.000
  • and the people
  • 00:04:31.000 --> 00:04:31.150
  • who minister to you.
  • 00:04:31.150 --> 00:04:33.170
  • You have to classify people
  • 00:04:33.170 --> 00:04:35.150
  • who come into your life.
  • 00:04:35.150 --> 00:04:37.200
  • Not everybody --
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:38.180
  • this is going to shock
  • 00:04:38.180 --> 00:04:39.060
  • some of you.
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:40.000
  • This is almost going to sound
  • 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:40.260
  • un-Christian, but no,
  • 00:04:40.260 --> 00:04:42.030
  • you just don't know
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:42.230
  • the wisdom of God's Word.
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:45.020
  • The truth is,
  • 00:04:45.020 --> 00:04:45.270
  • you have to classify people
  • 00:04:45.270 --> 00:04:47.190
  • who come into your life.
  • 00:04:47.190 --> 00:04:49.070
  • And there's only two classes:
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:50.200
  • those that you minister to,
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:52.050
  • and those that minister to you.
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:54.270
  • You're not called to everybody.
  • 00:04:54.270 --> 00:04:56.090
  • You have to qualify people.
  • 00:04:58.010 --> 00:05:01.030
  • The Bible said in Joshua 1:8.
  • 00:05:01.070 --> 00:05:04.070
  • "This book shall not depart," --
  • 00:05:04.250 --> 00:05:07.250
  • listen to this:
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:08.220
  • "The book of law shall not
  • 00:05:08.220 --> 00:05:10.040
  • depart out of your mouth,
  • 00:05:10.040 --> 00:05:11.170
  • but you shall meditate in it
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:12.290
  • day and night," --
  • 00:05:12.290 --> 00:05:14.020
  • listen to this:
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:14.240
  • "That you may observe to do
  • 00:05:14.240 --> 00:05:16.230
  • all that is according --
  • 00:05:16.230 --> 00:05:18.000
  • that is written thereof,"
  • 00:05:18.000 --> 00:05:19.180
  • and then,
  • 00:05:19.180 --> 00:05:20.070
  • listen to what he says:
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:21.130
  • "You will make
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:22.200
  • your way prosperous,
  • 00:05:22.200 --> 00:05:24.190
  • and you will have good success."
  • 00:05:24.190 --> 00:05:26.270
  • Notice, God doesn't make
  • 00:05:26.270 --> 00:05:28.130
  • you prosperous.
  • 00:05:28.130 --> 00:05:29.130
  • When you get into this book
  • 00:05:29.130 --> 00:05:31.030
  • and you meditate in this book,
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:33.100
  • you make your way prosperous.
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:35.280
  • You --
  • 00:05:35.280 --> 00:05:36.150
  • God doesn't give you
  • 00:05:36.150 --> 00:05:37.160
  • good success.
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:38.290
  • When you get into

  • And you can go to heaven,

  • a miserable life on earth
  • 00:06:31.250 --> 00:06:32.270
  • when you don't learn

  • the principles of Jesus.
  • 00:06:33.140 --> 00:06:35.060

  • to have a victorious life
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:40.070
  • and a happy

  • family, or how to run

  • 00:06:47.040 --> 00:06:48.120
  • The principles of success
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:50.240
  • are in the Bible,
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:51.130
  • and it's not enough
  • 00:06:51.130 --> 00:06:52.050
  • to know the person.
  • 00:06:52.050 --> 00:06:53.080
  • That's why you're so wise
  • 00:06:53.080 --> 00:06:54.080
  • for being here,
  • 00:06:54.080 --> 00:06:55.040
  • because you need more
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:56.070
  • than the person of salvation.
  • 00:06:56.070 --> 00:06:57.210
  • You need the principles
  • 00:06:57.210 --> 00:06:58.250
  • to have a joyful life,
  • 00:06:58.250 --> 00:06:59.220
  • a happy life.
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:03.220
  • You can know the Son of God
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:04.230
  • and not know the systems of God.
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:07.110
  • You can know Christ
  • 00:07:07.110 --> 00:07:08.180
  • and not know His customs.
  • 00:07:08.180 --> 00:07:11.050
  • You can have
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:11.180
  • an experience with God,
  • 00:07:11.180 --> 00:07:12.290
  • but not have
  • 00:07:12.290 --> 00:07:13.250
  • the expertise of God.
  • 00:07:13.250 --> 00:07:15.070
  • And you can be saved
  • 00:07:15.070 --> 00:07:16.150
  • and fail at everything;
  • 00:07:16.150 --> 00:07:17.200
  • relationships, marriage,
  • 00:07:17.200 --> 00:07:19.000
  • everything, because
  • 00:07:19.000 --> 00:07:20.000
  • you don't know
  • 00:07:20.000 --> 00:07:21.180
  • the wisdom of God.
  • 00:07:21.180 --> 00:07:22.190
  • And the Word of God
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:23.140
  • is the wisdom of God.
  • 00:07:25.140 --> 00:07:28.140
  • You don't just have
  • 00:07:28.140 --> 00:07:29.050
  • to have a saved heart,
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:30.080
  • you need a renewed mind.
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:33.120
  • See, a lot of people
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:34.040
  • have given their heart Jesus,
  • 00:07:34.040 --> 00:07:35.090
  • but their mind
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:36.040
  • is still unrenewed.
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:38.010
  • The Bible said
  • 00:07:38.010 --> 00:07:38.170
  • don't be conformed
  • 00:07:38.170 --> 00:07:39.050
  • to this world,
  • 00:07:39.050 --> 00:07:40.000
  • but get a new way
  • 00:07:40.000 --> 00:07:40.190
  • of thinking; be renewed.
  • 00:07:40.190 --> 00:07:42.000
  • Have the renewing --
  • 00:07:42.000 --> 00:07:43.250
  • Romans 12:
  • 00:07:43.250 --> 00:07:44.200
  • the renewing of your mind.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:50.020
  • Both are necessary.
  • 00:07:50.020 --> 00:07:51.060
  • You know, no heart people --
  • 00:07:51.060 --> 00:07:53.200
  • I'm going to call Christians,
  • 00:07:53.200 --> 00:07:54.230
  • heart Christians,
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:55.210
  • they're all about feeling.
  • 00:07:55.210 --> 00:07:58.010
  • "I feel the presence of God,"
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.110
  • nothing wrong with that.
  • 00:07:59.110 --> 00:08:00.240
  • They're into worship.
  • 00:08:00.240 --> 00:08:01.200
  • They'll worship for hours.
  • 00:08:01.200 --> 00:08:03.020
  • "I feel God.
  • 00:08:03.020 --> 00:08:04.080
  • I feel angels,"
  • 00:08:04.080 --> 00:08:05.100
  • and they'll worship;
  • 00:08:05.100 --> 00:08:06.100
  • and there's nothing
  • 00:08:06.100 --> 00:08:06.230
  • wrong with that.
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:08.230
  • But usually, they're not much
  • 00:08:08.230 --> 00:08:09.250
  • into studying the Word.
  • 00:08:09.250 --> 00:08:11.150
  • They're just into feelings.
  • 00:08:11.150 --> 00:08:13.250
  • They get into a service
  • 00:08:13.250 --> 00:08:14.280
  • and work themselves up
  • 00:08:14.280 --> 00:08:15.210
  • into a lather and go outside
  • 00:08:15.210 --> 00:08:17.000
  • and don't even know
  • 00:08:17.000 --> 00:08:17.270
  • what they were shouting about.
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:21.140
  • And then there's other people --
  • 00:08:21.140 --> 00:08:23.050
  • Don't worry I'm coming your way
  • 00:08:23.050 --> 00:08:24.030
  • if that wasn't you.
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:25.150
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:25.150 --> 00:08:26.290
  • Then there's people
  • 00:08:26.290 --> 00:08:27.170
  • who they're all about the mind;
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:30.150
  • they're mind people.
  • 00:08:30.150 --> 00:08:31.220
  • They don't want
  • 00:08:31.220 --> 00:08:32.050
  • to worship and praise.
  • 00:08:32.050 --> 00:08:32.280
  • Usually, real smart mind people
  • 00:08:32.280 --> 00:08:34.190
  • are not much into worship.
  • 00:08:36.070 --> 00:08:39.070
  • This is how they do
  • 00:08:39.070 --> 00:08:40.080
  • during praise and worship.
  • 00:08:42.200 --> 00:08:45.200
  • 'Cause it's all about up here.
  • 00:08:45.200 --> 00:08:47.170
  • It's all about up here.
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:48.170
  • If you can ever get
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:49.170
  • the heart worshipping
  • 00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:51.020
  • and the mind studying
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:52.200
  • the Word of God,
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:53.180
  • that combination is something
  • 00:08:53.180 --> 00:08:55.070
  • the devil cannot deal with.
  • 00:08:55.070 --> 00:08:57.010
  • With you have
  • 00:08:57.010 --> 00:08:58.040
  • the humility to worship,
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:08:59.210
  • but you have the mind of God
  • 00:08:59.210 --> 00:09:01.150
  • and the wisdom of God
  • 00:09:01.150 --> 00:09:02.260
  • you are a threat
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:04.110
  • to the enemy in your life.
  • 00:09:04.110 --> 00:09:06.060
  • Come on, and say,
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:06.220
  • "Amen," somebody.
  • 00:09:06.220 --> 00:09:07.260
  • Both are necessary;
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:11.040
  • the person and the principles;
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:13.050
  • worship and study
  • 00:09:13.050 --> 00:09:14.270
  • the Word of God.
  • 00:09:14.270 --> 00:09:17.230
  • You will never wake up
  • 00:09:17.230 --> 00:09:18.120
  • with a God knowledge.
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:21.140
  • I just woke up and I knew
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:22.180
  • about the book of Romans.
  • 00:09:22.180 --> 00:09:24.210
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:26.120
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:27.260
  • It's not going to happen.
  • 00:09:27.260 --> 00:09:30.090
  • You can love God all you want,
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:31.090
  • worship God for hours
  • 00:09:31.090 --> 00:09:32.180
  • and you still
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:33.000
  • will have no knowledge.
  • 00:09:33.000 --> 00:09:34.120
  • And, "My people are destroyed
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:35.270
  • for lack of knowledge."
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:38.010
  • Marriages are destroyed
  • 00:09:38.010 --> 00:09:39.240
  • 'cause they don't get
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:40.290
  • into the wisdom of God.
  • 00:09:40.290 --> 00:09:43.010
  • Business don't
  • 00:09:43.010 --> 00:09:44.000
  • succeed because --
  • 00:09:44.000 --> 00:09:45.200
  • Not cause they don't try hard.
  • 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:47.040
  • They don't have wisdom
  • 00:09:47.040 --> 00:09:50.000
  • to know the difference
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:51.220
  • between people and opportunity
  • 00:09:51.220 --> 00:09:53.160
  • and timing and focus --
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:55.280
  • Don't and ignore --
  • 00:09:55.280 --> 00:09:57.080
  • That only comes through --
  • 00:09:57.080 --> 00:09:59.240
  • You ought to --
  • 00:09:59.240 --> 00:10:00.260
  • Man, when I dropped
  • 00:10:00.260 --> 00:10:01.240
  • this Bible, my momma used --
  • 00:10:01.240 --> 00:10:03.120
  • When I was a kid
  • 00:10:03.120 --> 00:10:04.050
  • if we'd drop the Bible,
  • 00:10:04.050 --> 00:10:05.090
  • she'd say, "Pick it up
  • 00:10:05.090 --> 00:10:06.050
  • and kiss it."
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:08.190
  • We had to pick the Bible up --
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:09.230
  • [Kissing]
  • 00:10:09.230 --> 00:10:11.070
  • You ought to kiss your Bible
  • 00:10:11.070 --> 00:10:12.010
  • every once in while.
  • 00:10:12.010 --> 00:10:14.010
  • You kiss your cat,
  • 00:10:14.010 --> 00:10:14.180
  • kiss your Bible.
  • 00:10:14.180 --> 00:10:15.200
  • My God, if you can kiss
  • 00:10:15.200 --> 00:10:16.280
  • an old --
  • 00:10:16.280 --> 00:10:19.270
  • Let's keep moving.
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:20.210
  • Let's keep moving.
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:24.220
  • Pursue the knowledge
  • 00:10:24.220 --> 00:10:25.250
  • of the Word of God.
  • 00:10:26.040 --> 00:10:29.040
  • Control your --
  • 00:10:29.040 --> 00:10:30.040
  • and manage your thought life.
  • 00:10:30.100 --> 00:10:33.100
  • What you picture in your mind
  • 00:10:33.100 --> 00:10:34.180

  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:36.060
  • Garbage in, garbage out.

  • you open your mouth,
  • 00:10:54.190 --> 00:10:55.270

  • God will give you the answers

  • How did he know to do that?
  • 00:11:02.270 --> 00:11:04.170
  • It's the wisdom of God,

  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:11.190
  • But if garbage in,

  • You're either

  • or you're putting porn in,

  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:23.290
  • And then, you wonder,

  • somebody pulls --
  • 00:11:29.010 --> 00:11:30.060
  • and roll down

  • "Blankity-blank."
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:32.250
  • Where did that come from?
  • 00:11:32.250 --> 00:11:33.260
  • Garbage in,

  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:37.030
  • "Blankity-blank,
  • 00:11:37.030 --> 00:11:37.210

  • What are you putting in?
  • 00:11:55.270 --> 00:11:58.070
  • Understand the power

  • of spoken words.
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:00.170
  • Speak what you expect,
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:01.280
  • not what you're experiencing.
  • 00:12:01.280 --> 00:12:04.200
  • Talk about two things,
  • 00:12:05.170 --> 00:12:08.170
  • talk about what God has done,
  • 00:12:08.170 --> 00:12:10.150
  • and talk about the blessings
  • 00:12:10.150 --> 00:12:11.270
  • that are en-route to your life,
  • 00:12:11.270 --> 00:12:13.190
  • even as you are sitting
  • 00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:14.260
  • here today,
  • 00:12:14.260 --> 00:12:15.260
  • and begin to praise God
  • 00:12:15.260 --> 00:12:17.000
  • for those things.
  • 00:12:17.000 --> 00:12:17.290
  • And God says, "I create
  • 00:12:17.290 --> 00:12:19.150
  • the fruit of your lips."
  • 00:12:19.150 --> 00:12:21.010
  • He said that in Josiah:
  • 00:12:21.010 --> 00:12:22.010
  • "I create the fruit
  • 00:12:22.010 --> 00:12:23.040
  • of your lips."
  • 00:12:23.040 --> 00:12:23.250
  • "Whatever your lips say,
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:25.050
  • I start to fashion-fold,
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:26.080
  • and I create."
  • 00:12:27.010 --> 00:12:30.010
  • Stop complaining.
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:34.160
  • Turn to somebody and say,
  • 00:12:34.160 --> 00:12:35.120
  • "You look like the cover girl
  • 00:12:35.120 --> 00:12:36.270
  • for the Book of Lamentations."
  • 00:12:36.270 --> 00:12:38.060
  • Come on.
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:38.230
  • Stop complaining.
  • 00:12:39.180 --> 00:12:42.180
  • Faith comes when you hear
  • 00:12:42.180 --> 00:12:44.100
  • God talk.
  • 00:12:45.160 --> 00:12:48.160
  • Faith is courage.
  • 00:12:51.040 --> 00:12:54.040
  • And faith comes
  • 00:12:54.040 --> 00:12:55.100
  • when you hear God talk,
  • 00:12:55.100 --> 00:12:57.030
  • that's why it's so powerful
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:12:58.020
  • to read the Bible.
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:59.110
  • And if you don't understand it,
  • 00:12:59.110 --> 00:13:00.160
  • just read it.
  • 00:13:00.160 --> 00:13:01.270
  • Just read it,
  • 00:13:01.270 --> 00:13:02.150
  • just keep reading it,
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:03.030
  • and pass through the parts
  • 00:13:03.030 --> 00:13:04.060
  • you don't understand.
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:04.290
  • But if you just keep reading it,
  • 00:13:04.290 --> 00:13:06.070
  • somewhere in there,
  • 00:13:06.070 --> 00:13:07.010
  • if you'll read the book,
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:07.210
  • the book'll read you,
  • 00:13:07.210 --> 00:13:08.200
  • and there'll come a verse out
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:09.240
  • of nowhere, and bam,
  • 00:13:09.240 --> 00:13:10.240
  • it'll jump out of all those,
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:12.060
  • that, "So-and-so
  • 00:13:12.060 --> 00:13:12.200
  • begot so-and-so."
  • 00:13:12.200 --> 00:13:13.080
  • "So-and-so begot so-and-so."
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:14.100
  • So -- and right in the middle
  • 00:13:14.100 --> 00:13:15.090
  • of it, and: "No weapon
  • 00:13:15.090 --> 00:13:16.110
  • formed against you
  • 00:13:16.110 --> 00:13:17.070
  • shall prosper."
  • 00:13:17.070 --> 00:13:18.050
  • Wow.
  • 00:13:18.050 --> 00:13:19.120
  • And then, you keep reading.
  • 00:13:19.120 --> 00:13:20.220
  • Get in a book
  • 00:13:20.220 --> 00:13:21.070
  • you don't understand,
  • 00:13:21.070 --> 00:13:21.270
  • just keep reading.
  • 00:13:21.270 --> 00:13:22.250
  • We don't --
  • 00:13:22.250 --> 00:13:23.110
  • you ain't got to worry
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:24.250
  • about what you don't understand.
  • 00:13:25.080 --> 00:13:28.080
  • There's enough.
  • 00:13:28.080 --> 00:13:28.260
  • If you'll read this book,
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:30.100
  • this book will fill you
  • 00:13:30.100 --> 00:13:31.180
  • with the wisdom of God,
  • 00:13:31.180 --> 00:13:32.230
  • but you have to have a time,
  • 00:13:32.230 --> 00:13:34.090
  • you have to have a place,
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:35.220
  • you have to sit down,
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:36.260
  • you have to say

  • it's from 7 to 7:15,
  • 00:13:37.120 --> 00:13:39.060
  • or 7:20.
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:40.060
  • I don't want any interruptions.
  • 00:13:40.060 --> 00:13:41.220
  • I turn all the stuff off,
  • 00:13:41.220 --> 00:13:43.150
  • and I'm going to read this book.
  • 00:13:43.150 --> 00:13:45.030
  • If you will give God
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:46.060
  • the next 30 days
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:47.140

  • and read through,
  • 00:13:54.190 --> 00:13:56.000
  • systematically,
  • 00:13:56.000 --> 00:13:56.230
  • one of the books of the Bible.
  • 00:13:56.230 --> 00:13:59.070
  • If you will do that, in 30 days,
  • 00:13:59.070 --> 00:14:02.050

  • Here's another one.
  • 00:14:15.100 --> 00:14:16.080
  • I really thought --
  • 00:14:16.080 --> 00:14:17.170
  • I don't know
  • 00:14:17.170 --> 00:14:17.290
  • if I wanted to put this one
  • 00:14:17.290 --> 00:14:18.270
  • in here, but I feel like
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:20.040
  • I'm supposed to.
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:22.230
  • One of the keys to finding
  • 00:14:22.230 --> 00:14:25.040
  • your plan and your purpose
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:26.130

  • Don't lose your friendships.

  • cause you to destroy
  • 00:14:35.100 --> 00:14:36.240
  • good friendships.
  • 00:14:37.090 --> 00:14:40.090
  • Nurture your friendships.
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:42.200
  • Maintain your friendships.

  • Deuteronomy 8:18, says this,
  • 00:14:57.180 --> 00:15:00.200
  • "You shall remember the Lord
  • 00:15:00.200 --> 00:15:01.150
  • your God for it is He," --
  • 00:15:01.150 --> 00:15:03.140
  • watch this: "Who gives you
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:06.060
  • the power to get wealth."
  • 00:15:06.060 --> 00:15:07.260
  • It did not say
  • 00:15:07.260 --> 00:15:08.180
  • that God gives you wealth.
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:10.200
  • He said, "I will give you

  • the how to get wealth."
  • 00:15:13.280 --> 00:15:16.280
  • He gives you the mentality.
  • 00:15:17.210 --> 00:15:20.210
  • He said in Isaiah 48,
  • 00:15:20.210 --> 00:15:22.080
  • "I will teach you

  • how to prosper."
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.060
  • "I'll teach you to profit."
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:27.220

  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:43.070
  • He'll teach you.
  • 00:15:43.070 --> 00:15:44.060
  • I'm almost done, but I was --
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:45.250
  • think about this.
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:47.080
  • There is a mentality
  • 00:15:47.080 --> 00:15:48.280
  • to being blessed.
  • 00:15:49.040 --> 00:15:52.040
  • Money goes where money is.
  • 00:15:53.220 --> 00:15:56.220
  • Success goes where success is.
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:15:58.230
  • Jesus was teaching
  • 00:15:58.230 --> 00:15:59.260
  • a lesson one time,
  • 00:15:59.260 --> 00:16:01.060
  • and He said that there was a guy
  • 00:16:01.060 --> 00:16:02.250
  • who had money,
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:03.270
  • and he didn't do anything
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:04.260
  • with it, and there was a guy
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:07.040
  • who had some money,
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:08.000
  • and he invested it
  • 00:16:08.000 --> 00:16:08.280
  • and made a lot with it,
  • 00:16:08.280 --> 00:16:10.000
  • and God --
  • 00:16:10.000 --> 00:16:10.160
  • Jesus, God's Son,
  • 00:16:10.160 --> 00:16:11.220
  • said, "Take from the guy
  • 00:16:11.220 --> 00:16:13.100
  • who did nothing,"
  • 00:16:13.100 --> 00:16:14.130
  • and he needs it, real bad.
  • 00:16:14.130 --> 00:16:16.150
  • "Take it from him,
  • 00:16:16.150 --> 00:16:17.130
  • and give it to the guy
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:18.150
  • who's really blessed,"
  • 00:16:18.150 --> 00:16:20.150
  • 'cause success follows success.
  • 00:16:20.200 --> 00:16:23.200
  • Money follows money.
  • 00:16:23.200 --> 00:16:25.200
  • It's a principle.
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:28.040
  • When Solomon
  • 00:16:28.040 --> 00:16:30.240
  • was the wealthiest man
  • 00:16:30.240 --> 00:16:32.080
  • in the world,
  • 00:16:32.080 --> 00:16:32.230
  • the Bible said that the queen
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:33.250
  • of Sheba came to see him,
  • 00:16:34.050 --> 00:16:37.050
  • and after she saw
  • 00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:38.060
  • all that he had done, she --
  • 00:16:38.060 --> 00:16:40.060
  • it took her breath away,
  • 00:16:40.060 --> 00:16:42.230
  • and then she did
  • 00:16:42.230 --> 00:16:43.120
  • the strangest thing.
  • 00:16:43.120 --> 00:16:44.100
  • She got 120.000 talents
  • 00:16:44.100 --> 00:16:46.110
  • of gold, and gave --
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:47.220
  • the man who least needed
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:49.080
  • the resources,
  • 00:16:49.080 --> 00:16:51.150
  • she gave it to him.
  • 00:16:53.280 --> 00:16:56.280
  • What I'm saying to you today
  • 00:16:56.280 --> 00:16:58.160
  • is so powerful, that once
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:17:00.270
  • you get the Word of God
  • 00:17:00.270 --> 00:17:02.160
  • and the wisdom of God in you,
  • 00:17:02.260 --> 00:17:05.260
  • it enables you
  • 00:17:05.260 --> 00:17:06.290
  • to make wise decisions.
  • 00:17:08.220 --> 00:17:11.220
  • Your assignment will always
  • 00:17:11.220 --> 00:17:13.280
  • have an enemy.
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:16.220
  • Nehemiah began
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:17.180
  • to build the wall,
  • 00:17:17.180 --> 00:17:18.220
  • and the enemy showed up.
  • 00:17:18.220 --> 00:17:21.040
  • Jesus had an assignment,
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:23.050
  • but the pharisees showed up.
  • 00:17:23.050 --> 00:17:24.260
  • Anytime you are doing what God
  • 00:17:24.260 --> 00:17:27.050
  • has assigned you to do,
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:28.150
  • there will be enemies
  • 00:17:28.150 --> 00:17:29.260
  • to God's assignment.
  • 00:17:29.290 --> 00:17:32.290
  • Your assignment is geographical.
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:36.190
  • Jonah was not
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:37.220
  • in the right place.
  • 00:17:37.220 --> 00:17:38.260
  • God said, "Go to Ninevah,"
  • 00:17:38.260 --> 00:17:40.260
  • but he didn't go there,
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:42.010
  • and God prepared a fish,
  • 00:17:42.010 --> 00:17:43.110
  • and swallowed him.
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:44.200
  • And when God
  • 00:17:44.200 --> 00:17:45.150
  • got through with him,
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:46.090
  • by the time all of those
  • 00:17:46.090 --> 00:17:47.130
  • amino acid juices ate
  • 00:17:47.130 --> 00:17:49.060
  • all his hair and eyebrows off,
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:51.200
  • he came out looking
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:52.240
  • like an old,
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:53.180
  • withered up raisin.
  • 00:17:53.180 --> 00:17:54.150
  • Spit up, with fish vomit
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:56.050
  • all over him,
  • 00:17:56.050 --> 00:17:57.030
  • spending the night
  • 00:17:57.030 --> 00:17:57.270
  • on a rubber mattress
  • 00:17:57.270 --> 00:17:59.080
  • for three days and three nights.
  • 00:17:59.080 --> 00:18:01.210
  • He came up and said,
  • 00:18:01.210 --> 00:18:02.270
  • "I'll go anywhere
  • 00:18:02.270 --> 00:18:03.190
  • you want me to go."
  • 00:18:03.190 --> 00:18:04.190
  • Don't make God prepare a fish
  • 00:18:04.190 --> 00:18:06.180
  • to get you where
  • 00:18:06.180 --> 00:18:07.060
  • you're supposed to be.
  • 00:18:07.060 --> 00:18:09.150
  • God's assignment
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:10.280
  • is geographical.
  • 00:18:10.280 --> 00:18:13.170
  • What you hate or what angers you
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:17.020
  • is a clue to what
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:18.060
  • you're assigned to deal with.
  • 00:18:18.060 --> 00:18:20.180
  • Some things you can ignore,
  • 00:18:20.180 --> 00:18:21.260
  • but some things
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:22.120
  • really get on your nerves.
  • 00:18:22.120 --> 00:18:23.170
  • If you see somebody,
  • 00:18:23.170 --> 00:18:24.190
  • maybe it's abuse,
  • 00:18:24.190 --> 00:18:25.170
  • or maybe it's alcohol --
  • 00:18:25.170 --> 00:18:28.060
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving,
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:30.030
  • you know, the woman
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:31.030
  • that started that,
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:31.200
  • her son was killed.
  • 00:18:31.200 --> 00:18:32.260
  • And it so upset her,
  • 00:18:32.260 --> 00:18:34.090
  • that she started
  • 00:18:34.090 --> 00:18:35.040
  • a whole movement
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:36.130
  • of mothers against
  • 00:18:36.130 --> 00:18:37.040
  • drunk drivers.
  • 00:18:37.040 --> 00:18:37.290
  • Man, why did she do that?
  • 00:18:37.290 --> 00:18:39.180
  • Because she got angry
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:40.240
  • about something.
  • 00:18:40.240 --> 00:18:41.280
  • Maybe it's sex trafficking,
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:43.180
  • or maybe it's poverty,
  • 00:18:43.180 --> 00:18:44.280
  • or maybe it's sin, you know,
  • 00:18:44.280 --> 00:18:47.140
  • kids in a situation
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:49.080
  • where they're never --
  • 00:18:49.080 --> 00:18:50.120
  • whatever angers you, in a --
  • 00:18:50.120 --> 00:18:51.220
  • when Moses saw an Israelite
  • 00:18:51.220 --> 00:18:54.080
  • being beaten by an Egyptian,
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:56.080
  • it angered him, and he went
  • 00:18:56.080 --> 00:18:57.280
  • and slew him,
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:18:58.140
  • that he did it out of timing,
  • 00:18:58.140 --> 00:19:00.040
  • but it was a clue
  • 00:19:00.040 --> 00:19:01.020
  • to his assignment.
  • 00:19:01.020 --> 00:19:02.050
  • He was called to deliver
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:03.160
  • the Israelites
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:04.080
  • from the Egyptians.
  • 00:19:05.120 --> 00:19:08.120
  • Let me give you another clue.
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:11.080
  • What you love
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:11.260
  • and what you enjoy
  • 00:19:11.260 --> 00:19:13.130
  • is a clue to your assignment.
  • 00:19:15.060 --> 00:19:18.060
  • Anytime somebody comes to me
  • 00:19:18.060 --> 00:19:19.100
  • and they say,
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:21.110
  • "I just don't know.
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:23.120
  • Oh, Pastor.
  • 00:19:23.120 --> 00:19:24.120
  • Pastor I need you
  • 00:19:24.120 --> 00:19:25.130
  • to council me.
  • 00:19:25.130 --> 00:19:25.260
  • Should I marry this person?"
  • 00:19:25.260 --> 00:19:27.140
  • And they're sad
  • 00:19:27.140 --> 00:19:28.090
  • and they're crying
  • 00:19:28.090 --> 00:19:29.210
  • and they're disturbed
  • 00:19:29.210 --> 00:19:30.240
  • and they're torn to pieces.
  • 00:19:30.240 --> 00:19:32.260
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:19:36.170 --> 00:19:39.170
  • The lack of joy is a clue.
  • 00:19:41.140 --> 00:19:44.140
  • If you're not ecstatic about it,
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:46.060
  • if you're not gooey
  • 00:19:46.060 --> 00:19:47.140
  • in love, if you're not,
  • 00:19:47.140 --> 00:19:49.030
  • "Oh, I can't breath without them
  • 00:19:49.030 --> 00:19:51.180
  • near me, touching me."
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:53.080
  • Do not get married.
  • 00:19:53.080 --> 00:19:55.020
  • The lack of joy is a real clue.
  • 00:20:00.110 --> 00:20:03.110
  • The bible said perfect love
  • 00:20:03.110 --> 00:20:04.250
  • cast out all fear.
  • 00:20:04.250 --> 00:20:06.080
  • "I'm afraid.
  • 00:20:06.080 --> 00:20:06.290
  • I'm afraid."
  • 00:20:06.290 --> 00:20:07.190
  • If you are really in love,
  • 00:20:07.190 --> 00:20:09.160
  • you're not afraid.
  • 00:20:10.190 --> 00:20:13.190
  • Decide to excel
  • 00:20:13.190 --> 00:20:15.170
  • in your present assignment.
  • 00:20:18.080 --> 00:20:21.080
  • I really want God to --
  • 00:20:21.080 --> 00:20:22.050
  • I'm waiting on somebody
  • 00:20:22.050 --> 00:20:23.250
  • to discover me.
  • 00:20:23.250 --> 00:20:25.030
  • I'm waiting on the big door.
  • 00:20:25.030 --> 00:20:27.010
  • I'm waiting on somebody who --
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:29.130
  • big doors swing
  • 00:20:29.130 --> 00:20:30.110
  • on little hinges.
  • 00:20:31.210 --> 00:20:34.210
  • You have to excel

  • in your present assignment,
  • 00:20:37.020 --> 00:20:40.020
  • and when you excel

  • in your present assignment,
  • 00:20:41.120 --> 00:20:43.130
  • it says to God
  • 00:20:43.130 --> 00:20:45.110
  • and to people who you may
  • 00:20:45.110 --> 00:20:47.070
  • not even be aware
  • 00:20:47.070 --> 00:20:48.060
  • are watching you,
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:50.260
  • they're too big for that place.
  • 00:20:50.260 --> 00:20:53.220
  • They need a bigger place.
  • 00:20:53.220 --> 00:20:56.160
  • Excel in your
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:20:57.170
  • present assignment.
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:20:59.040
  • Quit waiting.
  • 00:20:59.040 --> 00:21:00.190
  • The Bible said,
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:01.020
  • "Despise not the day
  • 00:21:01.020 --> 00:21:02.250
  • of small beginnings."
  • 00:21:02.250 --> 00:21:04.050
  • Don't put little value
  • 00:21:04.050 --> 00:21:05.220
  • on the little hinge,
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.150
  • but the big doors
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:09.040
  • swing on the little hinges
  • 00:21:09.040 --> 00:21:10.220
  • of our life.
  • 00:21:10.220 --> 00:21:12.150
  • And you must excel
  • 00:21:12.150 --> 00:21:14.040
  • in your present --
  • 00:21:14.040 --> 00:21:15.020
  • "I wish I could get
  • 00:21:15.020 --> 00:21:15.270
  • a big contract."
  • 00:21:15.270 --> 00:21:17.050
  • Excel in your
  • 00:21:17.050 --> 00:21:18.210
  • present assignment.
  • 00:21:20.180 --> 00:21:23.180
  • Hallelujah.
  • 00:21:23.180 --> 00:21:25.180
  • Can I give you one more?
  • 00:21:25.180 --> 00:21:27.260
  • Talking about ways
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:30.200
  • to find God's plan.
  • 00:21:30.200 --> 00:21:32.170
  • You must make a decision
  • 00:21:32.170 --> 00:21:34.160
  • to honor divine authority
  • 00:21:34.160 --> 00:21:36.020
  • in your life.
  • 00:21:36.020 --> 00:21:36.230
  • I'll close with this.
  • 00:21:36.230 --> 00:21:38.260
  • Make a decision
  • 00:21:38.260 --> 00:21:40.040
  • that you will honor mentors.
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:43.060
  • See, there's two ways to learn,
  • 00:21:43.060 --> 00:21:45.050
  • mistakes or mentors.
  • 00:21:45.050 --> 00:21:48.020
  • When you invite correction,
  • 00:21:48.020 --> 00:21:49.220
  • you remove the pain of it.
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:52.130
  • Mentors -- listen to this,
  • 00:21:52.130 --> 00:21:54.040
  • mentors are shortcuts
  • 00:21:54.040 --> 00:21:56.130
  • to success.
  • 00:21:56.130 --> 00:21:57.190
  • Mentorship is learning
  • 00:21:57.190 --> 00:21:59.040
  • through the pain
  • 00:21:59.040 --> 00:21:59.210
  • of another person.
  • 00:21:59.210 --> 00:22:01.230
  • I'm glad you failed.
  • 00:22:01.230 --> 00:22:02.210
  • Now, tell me why,
  • 00:22:02.210 --> 00:22:03.150
  • so that I don't have to.
  • 00:22:03.150 --> 00:22:05.050
  • Thanks very much.
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:11.120
  • There are three things
  • 00:22:11.120 --> 00:22:12.050
  • that spiritual mentorship
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:14.280
  • will release into your life,
  • 00:22:14.280 --> 00:22:16.050
  • and even in the natural.
  • 00:22:16.050 --> 00:22:17.260
  • If you've got a boss,
  • 00:22:17.260 --> 00:22:18.150
  • they're your mentor.
  • 00:22:18.150 --> 00:22:20.260
  • Three things they can release
  • 00:22:20.260 --> 00:22:21.290
  • in your life, every time.
  • 00:22:21.290 --> 00:22:24.250
  • Provision, promotion,
  • 00:22:25.170 --> 00:22:28.170
  • protection.
  • 00:22:28.170 --> 00:22:30.190
  • If it's spiritual authority,
  • 00:22:30.190 --> 00:22:33.020
  • they always have the ability
  • 00:22:33.020 --> 00:22:34.220
  • to release provision --
  • 00:22:34.220 --> 00:22:37.000
  • if you honor 'em,
  • 00:22:37.000 --> 00:22:38.210
  • protection, and promotion.
  • 00:22:39.080 --> 00:22:42.080
  • And don't ever forget that law,
  • 00:22:42.080 --> 00:22:43.220
  • it's a law, and if you honor it,
  • 00:22:43.220 --> 00:22:45.190
  • God says it'll help you,
  • 00:22:45.190 --> 00:22:47.220
  • 'cause God's going to use
  • 00:22:47.220 --> 00:22:48.130
  • somebody to help you
  • 00:22:48.130 --> 00:22:49.270
  • get in your place.
  • 00:22:49.270 --> 00:22:52.160
  • Now, I want you, right now,
  • 00:22:52.160 --> 00:22:53.160
  • to raise your hands up
  • 00:22:53.160 --> 00:22:54.220
  • toward heaven, and say,
  • 00:22:54.220 --> 00:22:57.090
  • "Lord, I thank You today
  • 00:22:57.090 --> 00:22:59.270
  • that I have heard the truth.
  • 00:22:59.270 --> 00:23:02.240
  • The wisdom of God
  • 00:23:02.240 --> 00:23:05.230
  • is the Word of God.
  • 00:23:05.230 --> 00:23:07.080
  • I will no longer neglect it.
  • 00:23:07.080 --> 00:23:10.030
  • I repent,
  • 00:23:10.030 --> 00:23:12.290
  • that I have not consumed it,
  • 00:23:12.290 --> 00:23:15.280
  • that I have not devoured it.
  • 00:23:15.280 --> 00:23:18.150
  • But starting today,
  • 00:23:18.150 --> 00:23:20.160
  • I prioritize my days
  • 00:23:20.160 --> 00:23:22.170
  • in my life.
  • 00:23:22.170 --> 00:23:24.040
  • I will seek and pursue wisdom
  • 00:23:24.270 --> 00:23:27.270
  • and the knowledge of God.
  • 00:23:27.270 --> 00:23:30.170
  • And I thank You, that when I do,
  • 00:23:31.260 --> 00:23:34.260
  • You'll make my way prosperous,
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:37.120
  • and You'll give me good success.
  • 00:23:37.120 --> 00:23:39.270
  • In every area of my life,
  • 00:23:39.270 --> 00:23:42.190
  • I yield to Your wisdom.
  • 00:23:42.190 --> 00:23:44.280
  • I yield to Your Word.
  • 00:23:44.280 --> 00:23:47.110
  • I yield to Your plan."
  • 00:23:47.110 --> 00:23:48.180
  • Now, say this.
  • 00:23:48.180 --> 00:23:49.070
  • "I receive the right people,
  • 00:23:49.130 --> 00:23:52.130
  • the right place, the right plan,
  • 00:23:52.130 --> 00:23:55.080
  • - As you've watched
  • 00:24:02.280 --> 00:24:03.130
  • this program today,
  • 00:24:03.130 --> 00:24:05.280
  • I don't believe that
  • 00:24:05.280 --> 00:24:06.220
  • God is finished with you;
  • 00:24:06.220 --> 00:24:08.260
  • He's a God of restoration.
  • 00:24:08.260 --> 00:24:10.230
  • He's here to restore you,
  • 00:24:10.230 --> 00:24:12.070
  • to heal you, to love you.
  • 00:24:12.070 --> 00:24:15.070
  • You can be so forgiven,
  • 00:24:15.070 --> 00:24:17.140
  • that the Book of Romans said,
  • 00:24:17.140 --> 00:24:18.280
  • "There is now no condemnation
  • 00:24:18.280 --> 00:24:21.150
  • to those who have entered
  • 00:24:21.150 --> 00:24:22.170
  • in to Christ Jesus,
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:24.030
  • and what He did on the cross."
  • 00:24:24.030 --> 00:24:26.020
  • I want you to pray with me,
  • 00:24:26.020 --> 00:24:27.050
  • right now -- just,
  • 00:24:27.050 --> 00:24:27.290
  • right where you are,
  • 00:24:27.290 --> 00:24:29.000
  • say these words:
  • 00:24:29.000 --> 00:24:30.020
  • "Jesus, forgive me, cleanse me;
  • 00:24:31.060 --> 00:24:34.060
  • I need You in my life,
  • 00:24:34.060 --> 00:24:35.210
  • heal me, restore me,
  • 00:24:35.210 --> 00:24:38.210
  • and today, I confess my sins,
  • 00:24:38.210 --> 00:24:40.220
  • and I thank You for giving me
  • 00:24:40.220 --> 00:24:43.060
  • the freedom of grace and love
  • 00:24:43.270 --> 00:24:46.270
  • that I don't deserve,
  • 00:24:46.270 --> 00:24:48.100
  • and I have I not earned,
  • 00:24:48.100 --> 00:24:49.280
  • but You freely give it,
  • 00:24:49.280 --> 00:24:51.220
  • and I receive it,
  • 00:24:51.220 --> 00:24:53.130
  • in Jesus' name, amen."
  • 00:24:54.060 --> 00:24:57.060
  • One of the ministries
