  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:00:33.010 --> 00:00:34.120
  • The Bible says, oh say, she's goin' to the Bible,
  • 00:00:34.120 --> 00:00:35.130
  • she goin' to the Bible, the Bible says, whatsoever,
  • 00:00:35.160 --> 00:00:39.230
  • say whatsoever. - Whatsoever.
  • 00:00:39.230 --> 00:00:41.160
  • - Whatsoever we don't like here on this earth, bind it.
  • 00:00:41.160 --> 00:00:45.210
  • What we like in the heavens, loosen.
  • 00:00:47.030 --> 00:00:50.030
  • Where did the power start?
  • 00:00:51.000 --> 00:00:53.150
  • It started in the earth.
  • 00:00:53.150 --> 00:00:55.150
  • that He is the way, that He has already made the way.
  • 00:00:59.140 --> 00:01:00.270
  • No, no, I know that sounds good, and that's like
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:05.270
  • yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, but I need you to give revelation of
  • 00:01:05.270 --> 00:01:10.020
  • that you don't have to look for a way
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:14.160
  • when you're going through something,
  • 00:01:14.160 --> 00:01:17.140
  • you don't have to expect Him to make a way,
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:21.230
  • because the way has already been made.
  • 00:01:21.230 --> 00:01:25.130
  • The Bible says that Jesus is the,
  • 00:01:25.130 --> 00:01:28.060
  • - [Congregation] Way.
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:31.220
  • - So when you're singin' this song, you gotta realize
  • 00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:36.010
  • that all I gotta do is get in the way.
  • 00:01:36.010 --> 00:01:39.230
  • I have to just get in the way
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:42.100
  • that has already been made for me.
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:45.050
  • (congregation cheering in agreement)
  • 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:48.250
  • Like when my health is failin',
  • 00:01:48.250 --> 00:01:51.010
  • and all Hell is breakin' loose, I have to realize
  • 00:01:51.010 --> 00:01:55.160
  • that my life, Debbie, is not an emergency,
  • 00:01:55.160 --> 00:01:59.090
  • that God has already created the way.
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:02.140
  • All I have to know that He is a way maker,
  • 00:02:04.190 --> 00:02:08.040
  • a miracle worker, that He's already made it, sing it, y'all.
  • 00:02:09.160 --> 00:02:13.240
  • Promise keeper
  • 00:02:13.240 --> 00:02:15.200
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:02:15.200 --> 00:02:18.070
  • My God
  • 00:02:18.070 --> 00:02:19.230
  • That is who You are
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:22.280
  • Woah
  • 00:02:23.270 --> 00:02:26.090
  • Way maker
  • 00:02:26.090 --> 00:02:27.240
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:29.220
  • Promise keeper
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:31.230
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:02:31.230 --> 00:02:34.090
  • My God
  • 00:02:34.090 --> 00:02:35.250
  • That is who You are
  • 00:02:35.250 --> 00:02:39.000
  • - But there's a scripture, 1 Corinthians 10:13,
  • 00:02:40.110 --> 00:02:44.180
  • it talks about that way like God has already made that way.
  • 00:02:44.180 --> 00:02:48.230
  • Before you were ever even thought of,
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:54.030
  • before you were created, before your parents got together,
  • 00:02:54.030 --> 00:02:58.080
  • God went to the end of your life,
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:02.020
  • and He made a way for you.
  • 00:03:02.290 --> 00:03:05.040
  • No, no, you gotta see this.
  • 00:03:08.040 --> 00:03:09.240
  • Pastor Mike did this illustration, come here, come here,
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:13.290
  • and then when I show you the scripture
  • 00:03:15.040 --> 00:03:16.170
  • you really gonna kinda get it.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:18.170
  • I need you to go because you're havin' challenges,
  • 00:03:18.170 --> 00:03:22.170
  • and you're goin' through all kinda stuff,
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:25.020
  • but somethin' is followin' her.
  • 00:03:25.020 --> 00:03:27.190
  • I know you think it's just mercy and grace,
  • 00:03:27.190 --> 00:03:30.080
  • and your angels and all, but look, your way
  • 00:03:30.080 --> 00:03:33.230
  • is already there, your way is following your challenges,
  • 00:03:33.230 --> 00:03:37.280
  • your way is right here with you,
  • 00:03:39.170 --> 00:03:42.160
  • your way doesn't have to be created,
  • 00:03:42.160 --> 00:03:45.160
  • look, this is the way.
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:49.080
  • Yeah, uh huh, I know, I know, I know, I know,
  • 00:03:49.080 --> 00:03:51.070
  • I know you see this.
  • 00:03:51.070 --> 00:03:52.210
  • The scripture in 1 Corinthians 10:13, let's look at this.
  • 00:03:52.210 --> 00:03:56.260
  • You stay right there, 'cause I need you
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:03:59.130
  • to be that way again.
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:01.230
  • It says, let's read it together.
  • 00:04:01.230 --> 00:04:04.160
  • - No temptations. - Say no temptations.
  • 00:04:04.160 --> 00:04:07.010
  • - [Congregation] No temptations.
  • 00:04:07.010 --> 00:04:08.220
  • - Keep goin'.
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:09.290
  • - [Congregation] Hath overtaken you
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:11.260
  • except such as common to man.
  • 00:04:11.260 --> 00:04:14.080
  • But God is faithful.
  • 00:04:15.040 --> 00:04:17.000
  • - But God is what? - Faithful.
  • 00:04:17.000 --> 00:04:19.070
  • - But God is what? - Faithful!
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:21.170
  • - We shoulda shouted right here that no way,
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:25.250
  • no temptation has overtaken you,
  • 00:04:25.250 --> 00:04:29.090
  • because no temptation has the authority, or the right,
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:33.130
  • to overtake you.
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:36.170
  • Come on, but then it says, no temptation has overtaken you,
  • 00:04:39.030 --> 00:04:43.080
  • except such as common to man.
  • 00:04:44.050 --> 00:04:47.090
  • What you're goin' through isn't new,
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:51.020
  • what you are experiencing isn't something that just happened
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:55.190
  • today for you, everything that you are goin' through,
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:59.240
  • somebody else has already been through.
  • 00:05:01.240 --> 00:05:05.020
  • So that means that what challenge or what problem you have,
  • 00:05:06.180 --> 00:05:10.140
  • the solution has already been created.
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:13.190
  • What our problem is, we focus on our problem,
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:19.050
  • or the trials and the tribulations more than we do the way.
  • 00:05:21.200 --> 00:05:26.130
  • (audience cheering in agreement)
  • 00:05:26.130 --> 00:05:28.180
  • Come on, but God is what? - Faithful.
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:32.040
  • - God is faithful.
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:33.180
  • We serve a faithful God.
  • 00:05:35.050 --> 00:05:37.210
  • Yeah, I know you're standing up,
  • 00:05:37.210 --> 00:05:39.090
  • and you wanna know where all this is goin',
  • 00:05:39.090 --> 00:05:41.040
  • and you're tryin' to figure me out,
  • 00:05:41.040 --> 00:05:43.060
  • but we have already declared this month
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:46.000
  • as the month of worshipers.
  • 00:05:46.000 --> 00:05:48.200
  • Are there any worshipers in the house?
  • 00:05:48.200 --> 00:05:52.180
  • Come on, are there any worshipers, come on.
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:55.280
  • (congregation cheering and applauding)
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:57.130
  • My God
  • 00:05:57.130 --> 00:05:58.240
  • That is who you are
  • 00:05:58.240 --> 00:06:02.010
  • A way maker
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:04.270
  • Way maker
  • 00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:06.160
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:06:06.160 --> 00:06:07.260
  • He's a promise keeper
  • 00:06:07.260 --> 00:06:09.230
  • He's a light
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:10.190
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:06:10.190 --> 00:06:12.280
  • My God
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:14.080
  • That is who You are
  • 00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:16.010
  • You're faithful, that's who You are
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:18.150
  • Say way maker
  • 00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:20.120
  • Way maker
  • 00:06:20.120 --> 00:06:21.260
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:06:21.260 --> 00:06:24.000
  • Promise keeper
  • 00:06:24.000 --> 00:06:25.220
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:27.260
  • I don't have to be afraid
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:29.210
  • That is who You are
  • 00:06:29.210 --> 00:06:31.210
  • That is who You are
  • 00:06:31.210 --> 00:06:33.150
  • That is who You are, way maker
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:35.260
  • Way maker
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:37.120
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:06:37.120 --> 00:06:38.150
  • You keep Your promises, Jesus
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:41.020
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:43.010
  • My God
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:44.290
  • That is who You are
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:48.240
  • Go back to the scripture.
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:50.260
  • Go, go back, go past that.
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:54.150
  • Who will not allow you,
  • 00:06:58.050 --> 00:07:00.040
  • who will not allow you
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:05.220
  • to be tempted, tested, or tried beyond what you are able.
  • 00:07:08.050 --> 00:07:12.100
  • Wait, you know, pastors, they preach this message,
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:19.290
  • and this is where they get that God won't put on you
  • 00:07:21.130 --> 00:07:25.120
  • more than you can bear,
  • 00:07:25.120 --> 00:07:27.110
  • this is that scripture that they use,
  • 00:07:27.110 --> 00:07:29.280
  • but that does not say God will not put on you
  • 00:07:29.280 --> 00:07:33.190
  • more than you can bear, it says, who will not allow,
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:39.230
  • some translations say suffer, who will not allow you
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:44.190
  • to be tempted above what you, what you are able.
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:48.190
  • So that simply means, what I am presently goin' through
  • 00:07:52.110 --> 00:07:56.160
  • doesn't have the power or the wherewithal to take me out.
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:03.000
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:08:04.290 --> 00:08:06.240
  • No, that's somethin' you should worship God for right there.
  • 00:08:06.240 --> 00:08:09.260
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:08:09.260 --> 00:08:13.060
  • Are there any worshipers in the house?
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:16.230
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:17.280
  • Come on!
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:18.230
  • Way maker
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:21.110
  • Way maker
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:22.230
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:08:22.230 --> 00:08:24.030
  • You've already done it
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:26.020
  • Yeah
  • 00:08:26.020 --> 00:08:26.270
  • Light in darkness
  • 00:08:26.270 --> 00:08:28.160
  • You're so faithful
  • 00:08:28.160 --> 00:08:30.040
  • You're so faithful
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:32.140
  • That's who You are
  • 00:08:32.140 --> 00:08:33.240
  • That's who You are
  • 00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:35.060
  • Say way maker
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:37.200
  • Oh
  • 00:08:37.200 --> 00:08:39.170
  • You're a promise keeper
  • 00:08:39.170 --> 00:08:41.130
  • Say I'm the light
  • 00:08:41.130 --> 00:08:42.130
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:43.190
  • Say my God
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:44.180
  • My God
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:46.010
  • That is who You are
  • 00:08:46.010 --> 00:08:47.250
  • Say that is who You are
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:51.120
  • Say that is who You are
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:55.050
  • Say that is who You are
  • 00:08:55.050 --> 00:08:58.180
  • That's who we know You to be
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:09:01.050
  • And that is who You are
  • 00:09:01.050 --> 00:09:03.280
  • Come on and sing it with us
  • 00:09:03.280 --> 00:09:06.190
  • Say that is who You are
  • 00:09:06.190 --> 00:09:08.260
  • That is who You are
  • 00:09:08.260 --> 00:09:10.240
  • Faithful is who You are
  • 00:09:10.240 --> 00:09:12.220
  • That is who You are
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:15.270
  • When Pastor Mike was in that hospital,
  • 00:09:17.030 --> 00:09:20.080
  • in the ICU, do you think I stayed focused on
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:25.080
  • what my trial and tribulation was,
  • 00:09:28.060 --> 00:09:31.210
  • or did you think I'd look to find out
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:34.220
  • what that way of escape happened to be?
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:39.210
  • If I would've stayed focused
  • 00:09:41.000 --> 00:09:43.270
  • on the trial and the tribulation,
  • 00:09:43.270 --> 00:09:47.030
  • it would have become bigger than the way of escape.
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:51.170
  • Now listen, that's why the Bible, in Psalms 34 says
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:56.080
  • to O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt.
  • 00:09:56.080 --> 00:10:00.080
  • When you magnify God, He becomes bigger
  • 00:10:03.140 --> 00:10:06.220
  • than every problem, than every situation,
  • 00:10:08.260 --> 00:10:12.080
  • that you will ever go through.
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:16.000
  • I know when you come in here sometimes
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:18.270
  • you may not feel like raising your hand,
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:22.070
  • you may not feel like bowin' before Him,
  • 00:10:23.110 --> 00:10:26.250
  • you may not even feel like the person next you
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:30.090
  • goin' through all of that.
  • 00:10:30.090 --> 00:10:32.040
  • But if you would just have revelation that He is the,
  • 00:10:32.040 --> 00:10:37.010
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:10:37.010 --> 00:10:38.200
  • Promise keeper
  • 00:10:38.200 --> 00:10:40.180
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:42.290
  • My God
  • 00:10:42.290 --> 00:10:44.240
  • That is who You are
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:46.040
  • Come on, let's get it in our spirit
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:48.090
  • Come on and rock with us and say way maker
  • 00:10:48.090 --> 00:10:50.230
  • Way maker
  • 00:10:50.230 --> 00:10:51.210
  • Say He's a miracle worker
  • 00:10:51.210 --> 00:10:53.180
  • Let's see you move in Jesus
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:55.160
  • Hey
  • 00:10:55.160 --> 00:10:56.110
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:10:56.110 --> 00:10:58.180
  • My God
  • 00:10:58.180 --> 00:11:00.090
  • That's who You are
  • 00:11:00.090 --> 00:11:01.170
  • Come on, let's say that's who You are
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:04.030
  • That is who You are
  • 00:11:04.030 --> 00:11:07.180
  • That is who You are
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:09.130
  • Say that is who You are
  • 00:11:09.130 --> 00:11:11.130
  • That is who You Are
  • 00:11:11.130 --> 00:11:13.110
  • I don't have to fear
  • 00:11:13.110 --> 00:11:16.260
  • 'Cause that's who You are
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:20.060
  • You're a faithful God
  • 00:11:20.060 --> 00:11:24.010
  • You're a trustworthy God
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:26.210
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:11:26.210 --> 00:11:28.190
  • My God
  • 00:11:28.190 --> 00:11:29.270
  • Quick, quick, put the scripture back.
  • 00:11:29.270 --> 00:11:32.270
  • Just leave that scripture up there.
  • 00:11:32.270 --> 00:11:36.050
  • Who will not allow you to be tempted
  • 00:11:36.050 --> 00:11:38.240
  • beyond what you are able.
  • 00:11:38.240 --> 00:11:40.260
  • But, say but. - But.
  • 00:11:42.080 --> 00:11:43.260
  • - This is a big but, as Pastor Mike would say,
  • 00:11:45.010 --> 00:11:48.190
  • but with, say with. - With.
  • 00:11:49.190 --> 00:11:51.200
  • - The temptation will also make
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:55.180
  • the way of escape.
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:11:59.260
  • (congregation cheering in agreement)
  • 00:11:59.260 --> 00:12:02.250
  • This scripture has so many different elements in it,
  • 00:12:02.250 --> 00:12:06.280
  • like really, if we can just really get a glimpse of this,
  • 00:12:06.280 --> 00:12:10.180
  • and understand just this one scripture,
  • 00:12:10.180 --> 00:12:13.170
  • anything that you are faced with in life
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:16.130
  • would be like nothing.
  • 00:12:16.130 --> 00:12:18.080
  • Because, wait a minute God, You're telling me
  • 00:12:19.230 --> 00:12:23.150
  • that what I'm goin' through, that I'm not the only one
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:27.200
  • that has ever gone through this?
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:30.080
  • And then you gonna tell me that You said in Your Word
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:33.110
  • that I'm able to bear this?
  • 00:12:33.110 --> 00:12:35.180
  • When I feel like I'm about to lose my mind,
  • 00:12:36.230 --> 00:12:40.100
  • when I feel like I am about to go off
  • 00:12:40.100 --> 00:12:43.090
  • if they say one more thing to me?
  • 00:12:43.090 --> 00:12:46.020
  • When the doctors are givin' me a bad report?
  • 00:12:47.060 --> 00:12:50.100
  • You're tellin' me that I am able to handle
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:53.250
  • whatever is in my life?
  • 00:12:54.200 --> 00:12:56.180
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:12:57.290 --> 00:13:01.150
  • And then You goin' and talk about how faithful You are,
  • 00:13:01.150 --> 00:13:05.180
  • how faithful are You, God?
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:08.120
  • Well look, if the Bible says that He will not allow you
  • 00:13:08.120 --> 00:13:13.020
  • to be tempted above what you are able,
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:16.070
  • that simply means that He had to inspect it
  • 00:13:17.120 --> 00:13:20.240
  • before it got to your life.
  • 00:13:20.240 --> 00:13:22.270
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:13:22.270 --> 00:13:25.010
  • I'm lovin' this, I'm lovin' this.
  • 00:13:25.010 --> 00:13:27.240
  • He had to see it before it got to you.
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:32.020
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:35.160
  • So like when Satan came to say, okay,
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:38.190
  • I'm gonna throw this at him, God, He looked at it,
  • 00:13:40.020 --> 00:13:44.230
  • and He said, oh yeah, they can't handle that right now.
  • 00:13:44.230 --> 00:13:49.000
  • Then He come, He'd check out someone else.
  • 00:13:49.000 --> 00:13:51.280
  • Oh, okay, that's what you wanna throw at him,
  • 00:13:51.280 --> 00:13:53.230
  • go ahead, they got it.
  • 00:13:53.230 --> 00:13:55.080
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:13:55.080 --> 00:13:57.090
  • It's like bein' in a fistfight.
  • 00:13:57.090 --> 00:14:00.110
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:02.290
  • Listen, it's like bein' in a fistfight.
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:06.060
  • I don't know about you, but I got two brothers,
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:12.290
  • and my big brother knew when the little ones
  • 00:14:12.290 --> 00:14:16.050
  • could handle a fight.
  • 00:14:16.050 --> 00:14:18.110
  • So my big brother would just go and just show up,
  • 00:14:18.110 --> 00:14:22.040
  • and my little brother would stand and go at it
  • 00:14:22.040 --> 00:14:25.280
  • without the participation of my big brother.
  • 00:14:25.280 --> 00:14:30.080
  • But my big brother was there just in case.
  • 00:14:30.080 --> 00:14:33.210
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:14:33.210 --> 00:14:37.010
  • So when it looks like it's about to take you out,
  • 00:14:40.060 --> 00:14:44.080
  • and it looks like you can't handle it,
  • 00:14:45.130 --> 00:14:48.130
  • you've gotta remember that your big brother
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:52.010
  • is standin' right there.
  • 00:14:52.010 --> 00:14:53.270
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:14:53.270 --> 00:14:54.220
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:14:54.220 --> 00:14:56.050
  • Promise keeper
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:58.010
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:14:58.010 --> 00:15:00.110
  • My God
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:01.270
  • That is who You are
  • 00:15:01.270 --> 00:15:03.220
  • That's who You are, Jesus
  • 00:15:03.220 --> 00:15:05.250
  • Yeah
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:08.090
  • Way maker
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:09.190
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:15:09.190 --> 00:15:10.270
  • We serve an able God
  • 00:15:10.270 --> 00:15:13.090
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:15:13.090 --> 00:15:14.170
  • You're the light in the darkness
  • 00:15:14.170 --> 00:15:16.130
  • My God
  • 00:15:16.130 --> 00:15:17.100
  • That is who You are
  • 00:15:17.100 --> 00:15:18.220
  • My faithful God, that's who You are
  • 00:15:18.220 --> 00:15:22.210
  • That is who You are
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:24.140
  • Miracle worker
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:26.060
  • That is who You are
  • 00:15:26.060 --> 00:15:28.040
  • Light in the darkness
  • 00:15:28.040 --> 00:15:30.010
  • That's who You've been
  • 00:15:30.010 --> 00:15:31.280
  • That is who You are
  • 00:15:31.280 --> 00:15:33.200
  • That is who You are
  • 00:15:33.200 --> 00:15:35.200
  • That is who You are
  • 00:15:35.200 --> 00:15:39.000
  • Come here, Stacy.
  • 00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:41.010
  • But this is the thing, He says that
  • 00:15:41.010 --> 00:15:44.060
  • He'll give us a way of escape, right Joy?
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:47.240
  • He'll give us that way.
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:49.210
  • But the problem is, we read that scripture,
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:52.050
  • we think God is the one who threw in the test,
  • 00:15:52.050 --> 00:15:55.120
  • or the trial, or the tribulation, so we think
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:59.080
  • we gotta deal with this.
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:02.050
  • But that's a done deal, He know you can handle that.
  • 00:16:02.050 --> 00:16:06.100
  • What He wants you to do is just turn and just
  • 00:16:07.170 --> 00:16:11.070
  • look at the way.
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:12.170
  • What is the way, God? - Come on, come on.
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:17.150
  • - This is nothing, the test, the trial,
  • 00:16:20.000 --> 00:16:23.070
  • the temptations that you're going through, they're nothing.
  • 00:16:25.030 --> 00:16:29.250
  • What you need to focus on is this way.
  • 00:16:29.250 --> 00:16:33.000
  • Jesus, I told you, is the way, He's the truth,
  • 00:16:34.240 --> 00:16:38.190
  • and He's the light, all we gotta do is find that way.
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:44.100
  • And I submit to you today that the way,
  • 00:16:45.160 --> 00:16:48.160
  • at least one of the ways
  • 00:16:49.240 --> 00:16:52.050
  • of you gettin' out of your challenge, Donise, is worship.
  • 00:16:52.050 --> 00:16:56.100
  • Come on.
  • 00:16:57.090 --> 00:16:58.040
  • Worship is a way, we have emotional lives,
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:02.190
  • church and comin' and worship so long
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:09.110
  • that we don't even know that all we gotta do
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:12.030
  • is lift up our hands, and open up our mouths,
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:16.010
  • and position our hearts to receive
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:19.010
  • everything that God has for us.
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:21.140
  • It's not about how you feel,
  • 00:17:21.140 --> 00:17:23.240
  • it's not about what you're going through.
  • 00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:28.010
  • You may not feel like liftin' up your hands,
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:31.060
  • but since I know that worship is a way of escape for me,
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:35.090
  • I'm gon' give it up.
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:39.130
  • (congregation cheering)
  • 00:17:39.130 --> 00:17:41.160
  • In every heart
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:44.090
  • I worship You
  • 00:17:45.040 --> 00:17:47.160
  • That's what we do, Jesus
  • 00:17:47.160 --> 00:17:50.210
  • We open up our mouth
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:52.180
  • We lift up our hands
  • 00:17:52.180 --> 00:17:54.130
  • Because the King is here
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:57.230
  • We know You can do it, Jesus
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:18:01.140
  • We worship You, Jesus
  • 00:18:01.140 --> 00:18:05.030
  • We worship You, Father
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:07.000
  • Hey
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:08.030
  • You are here
  • 00:18:08.030 --> 00:18:09.120
  • There's nothin' like bein' in Your presence
  • 00:18:09.120 --> 00:18:12.230
  • I can do it when I'm in Your presence
  • 00:18:12.230 --> 00:18:16.230
  • And I worship You Jesus, yes I do
  • 00:18:16.230 --> 00:18:19.140
  • I worship You
  • 00:18:19.140 --> 00:18:20.240
  • Alleluia
  • 00:18:20.240 --> 00:18:23.170
  • You are here
  • 00:18:23.170 --> 00:18:26.110
  • Turnin' lives around
  • 00:18:26.110 --> 00:18:28.110
  • Whatever you need Him to do
  • 00:18:28.110 --> 00:18:32.110
  • I open up my mouth
  • 00:18:32.110 --> 00:18:34.240
  • I worship You
  • 00:18:34.240 --> 00:18:37.140
  • You are here
  • 00:18:38.110 --> 00:18:40.270
  • Turning lives
  • 00:18:40.270 --> 00:18:41.280
  • Mending every heart
  • 00:18:41.280 --> 00:18:44.150
  • You're mending every heart
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:46.050
  • I worship You
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:48.010
  • There's nothing else for me to do
  • 00:18:48.010 --> 00:18:49.160
  • But worship
  • 00:18:49.160 --> 00:18:51.190
  • When I don't understand I do worship
  • 00:18:51.190 --> 00:18:55.140
  • The King of glory is here
  • 00:18:55.140 --> 00:18:58.160
  • The King of glory is here
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:19:01.060
  • I worship
  • 00:19:01.060 --> 00:19:03.070
  • I serve an able God
  • 00:19:03.070 --> 00:19:05.020
  • I worship You
  • 00:19:05.020 --> 00:19:07.220
  • You are here
  • 00:19:08.250 --> 00:19:10.230
  • Yeah
  • 00:19:10.230 --> 00:19:11.220
  • Mending every heart
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:13.240
  • Mending every broken heart
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:17.230
  • We receive it, Jesus
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:20.210
  • We receive it, Jesus
  • 00:19:20.210 --> 00:19:23.290
  • And I know I keep talkin' about,
  • 00:19:25.100 --> 00:19:27.040
  • but a lotta times people always ask
  • 00:19:27.040 --> 00:19:29.030
  • how did you really get through
  • 00:19:29.030 --> 00:19:31.180
  • when Pastor Mike was in the hospital?
  • 00:19:33.030 --> 00:19:36.060
  • It's like they want something else other than the Word,
  • 00:19:36.060 --> 00:19:40.110
  • or what I did.
  • 00:19:41.280 --> 00:19:43.030
  • Like come on, you had to feel something,
