  • Living under constant fear,though it is an emotion, it
  • 00:00:54.604 --> 00:00:58.675
  • actually takes toll on the body.

  • tract, does damage to yourcardiovascular system.
  • 00:01:11.554 --> 00:01:17.293
  • Fear does stuff that doctors candetect in the body that you have
  • 00:01:17.293 --> 00:01:21.831
  • no reason to be sick and yetyour body is responding to
  • 00:01:21.831 --> 00:01:25.201
  • something that the doctor cannotdetect.
  • 00:01:25.201 --> 00:01:29.405

  • Irritable bowel syndrome, allkinds of stuff happens to you,
  • 00:01:32.008 --> 00:01:35.011
  • decreased fertility becauseyou're afraid, because your body
  • 00:01:35.011 --> 00:01:38.281
  • is taking all of your blood anddirecting it toward fight or
  • 00:01:38.281 --> 00:01:43.019
  • flight, increasing your sight soyou can see and your legs so you
  • 00:01:43.019 --> 00:01:48.925
  • can run.
  • 00:01:48.925 --> 00:01:50.260
  • The blood that normally feedsyour body and your functions is
  • 00:01:50.260 --> 00:01:53.930
  • fleeing because you are in fightor flight mode.
  • 00:01:53.930 --> 00:02:02.472
  • So fear takes a toll on youbecause our primal instinct is
  • 00:02:02.472 --> 00:02:08.211
  • to flee or fight.
  • 00:02:08.211 --> 00:02:13.149
  • But fear doesn't just take atoll on your body, it also takes
  • 00:02:13.149 --> 00:02:16.519
  • a toll on your mind.
  • 00:02:16.519 --> 00:02:20.123
  • They call it amygdala hijack.
  • 00:02:20.123 --> 00:02:22.225
  • It affects your mind.
  • 00:02:22.225 --> 00:02:24.527
  • It hijacks everything.

  • Your brain perceives everythingdifferently when you're afraid.
  • 00:02:25.995 --> 00:02:30.967
  • You can't trust your judgmentwhen you're afraid.

  • You see everything as negativewhen you're afraid.
  • 00:02:36.506 --> 00:02:39.776
  • It affects everything about yourdecisions when you're afraid.
  • 00:02:39.776 --> 00:02:45.748
  • We used to call it paranoia.
  • 00:02:45.748 --> 00:02:48.351
  • You're just paranoid.
  • 00:02:48.351 --> 00:02:50.453
  • And is there anybody in herethat's ever just been paranoid?
  • 00:02:50.453 --> 00:02:54.390
  • The phone rings and you jump, oryou just feel like something is
  • 00:02:54.390 --> 00:02:58.361
  • about to happen.
  • 00:02:58.361 --> 00:02:59.729
  • My wife describes it feelinglike a balloon is about-- it's
  • 00:02:59.729 --> 00:03:03.233
  • full of water and it's about thebust up under-- over your head,
  • 00:03:03.233 --> 00:03:06.536
  • and you don't know who's got thepin.
  • 00:03:06.536 --> 00:03:12.408
  • Anxiety, it affects everything.
  • 00:03:12.408 --> 00:03:16.746
  • And if you're up under it longenough, it causes the brain, now
  • 00:03:16.746 --> 00:03:22.518
  • hijacked, to remember certainthings, like how something
  • 00:03:22.518 --> 00:03:27.223
  • smelt, or a sight, or a soundwill take you right back to
  • 00:03:27.223 --> 00:03:33.363
  • that spot.
  • 00:03:33.363 --> 00:03:35.131
  • So you end up withpost-traumatic stress disorder.
  • 00:03:35.131 --> 00:03:38.268
  • It's over, but it's not over foryou.
  • 00:03:38.268 --> 00:03:42.805
  • And there are triggers that cantake you right back to that
  • 00:03:42.805 --> 00:03:46.276
  • space, and you will react off atrigger though the problem
  • 00:03:46.276 --> 00:03:49.879
  • is gone.
  • 00:03:49.879 --> 00:03:55.251
  • I want you to think about thatbecause I think what I'm
  • 00:03:55.251 --> 00:03:58.354
  • teaching right now has destroyedmore marriages and more
  • 00:03:58.354 --> 00:04:01.624
  • ministries than anything wecould talk about.
  • 00:04:01.624 --> 00:04:04.160
  • It's not what's going on, it'sthat what is going on has
  • 00:04:04.160 --> 00:04:07.897
  • triggered something that wenton.
  • 00:04:07.897 --> 00:04:12.035
  • Nobody ever got destroyed byhoofbeats, but the sound of the
  • 00:04:12.035 --> 00:04:19.709
  • hoofbeats is a trigger andreminds him of the abuse of
  • 00:04:19.709 --> 00:04:26.482
  • 400 years.
  • 00:04:26.482 --> 00:04:30.553
  • And Pharaoh has actually hurtnobody, but they heard him
  • 00:04:30.553 --> 00:04:34.924
  • coming and they were struck withterror.
  • 00:04:34.924 --> 00:04:38.428
  • You have to be careful.
  • 00:04:38.428 --> 00:04:39.829
  • We were singin' a minute ago,"The devil is a liar," and he
  • 00:04:39.829 --> 00:04:42.699
  • is, but the lie can be atrigger.
  • 00:04:42.699 --> 00:04:46.769
  • And when he brings up what couldhappen and you remember
  • 00:04:46.769 --> 00:04:49.906
  • something that did happen, it'salmost as if it is happening.
  • 00:04:49.906 --> 00:04:59.282
  • And all of a sudden you overreact in a situation and people
  • 00:04:59.282 --> 00:05:02.952
  • who haven't been through whatyou've been through don't
  • 00:05:02.952 --> 00:05:05.922
  • understand why you are flippingout over this situation.
  • 00:05:05.922 --> 00:05:11.928
  • But it's a trigger, and you'rehorrified.
  • 00:05:11.928 --> 00:05:19.736
  • And it doesn't always have to bea horse coming.
  • 00:05:19.736 --> 00:05:24.707
  • It could be a heartbreak.
  • 00:05:24.707 --> 00:05:27.410
  • It could be a disappointment.
  • 00:05:27.410 --> 00:05:30.179
  • It could be a lost job.
  • 00:05:30.179 --> 00:05:32.715
  • It could be a lost opportunity.
  • 00:05:32.715 --> 00:05:34.784
  • And all of a sudden, instead ofbeing rational and sayin',
  • 00:05:34.784 --> 00:05:38.187
  • "Well, I have to find me anotherjob," you wanna kill yourself.
  • 00:05:38.187 --> 00:05:41.391
  • "Oh God, my life is over.
  • 00:05:41.391 --> 00:05:43.192
  • I'm cursed.
  • 00:05:43.192 --> 00:05:44.560
  • Nothing goes right."
  • 00:05:44.560 --> 00:05:48.164
  • And you just spazzing out.
  • 00:05:48.164 --> 00:05:51.768
  • And Pharaoh hasn't even touchedyou.
  • 00:05:51.768 --> 00:05:56.005
  • You just heard hoof prints.
  • 00:05:56.005 --> 00:06:00.576
  • And your life, your joy, yourpeace, your amygdala has
  • 00:06:00.576 --> 00:06:05.014
  • hijacked the opportunity youhave to be happy right now
  • 00:06:05.014 --> 00:06:10.019
  • because it keeps dragging youback into something that you are
  • 00:06:10.019 --> 00:06:13.589
  • actually out of.
  • 00:06:13.589 --> 00:06:19.195
  • Oh, y'all missed that.
  • 00:06:19.195 --> 00:06:20.530
  • Y'all missed that.
  • 00:06:20.530 --> 00:06:21.864
  • See, the--the Bible says,"The enemy comes to kill, steal,
  • 00:06:21.864 --> 00:06:25.468
  • and destroy."
  • 00:06:25.468 --> 00:06:26.803
  • And one of the things he will dois steal the peace of where you
  • 00:06:26.803 --> 00:06:30.173
  • are with the threat of whereyou've been.
  • 00:06:30.173 --> 00:06:33.709
  • And all of a sudden, when youhear the hoof prints coming,
  • 00:06:33.709 --> 00:06:36.279
  • it's not like he got ya, but itreminds you that he used to have
  • 00:06:36.279 --> 00:06:40.216
  • ya, and all of a sudden it's asif you're already dead.
  • 00:06:40.216 --> 00:06:46.422
  • Now they're cursing wherethey're at and wishing for where
  • 00:06:46.422 --> 00:06:50.092
  • they've been, and saying, "Whydidn't you leave us in Egypt?
  • 00:06:50.092 --> 00:06:57.333
  • Why didn't you leave us where wejust got through praying to get
  • 00:06:57.333 --> 00:07:01.070
  • out of?"
  • 00:07:01.070 --> 00:07:03.973
  • Because if you're not careful,fear will cause you to be stuck
  • 00:07:03.973 --> 00:07:08.144
  • at 10 rather than risk goin' to11.
  • 00:07:08.144 --> 00:07:11.581
  • Oh God, who am I talking to?
  • 00:07:11.581 --> 00:07:13.549
  • I'm talking to somebody.
  • 00:07:13.549 --> 00:07:14.884
  • I don't know who I'm talkin' to.
  • 00:07:14.884 --> 00:07:16.252
  • Somebody is getting ready tostep into the next dimension,
  • 00:07:16.252 --> 00:07:19.522
  • and God is getting you ready forsomething and he needed you to
  • 00:07:19.522 --> 00:07:22.625
  • hear this message.
  • 00:07:22.625 --> 00:07:32.134
  • Nudge your neighbor and say,"Don't get stuck."
  • 00:07:32.134 --> 00:07:35.705
  • Because fear can paralyze you.
  • 00:07:35.705 --> 00:07:38.708
  • Fear can shut you down.
  • 00:07:38.708 --> 00:07:40.443
  • Fear can immobilize you.
  • 00:07:40.443 --> 00:07:42.078
  • Fear can make you run everybodyaway, even people who were gonna
  • 00:07:42.078 --> 00:07:45.882
  • help you.
  • 00:07:45.882 --> 00:07:47.216
  • But the fear that you might gethurt again, "Oh, just get out.
  • 00:07:47.216 --> 00:07:50.186
  • Just get-- pack your stuff andget out of here.
  • 00:07:50.186 --> 00:07:53.756
  • You're just like my daddy.
  • 00:07:53.756 --> 00:07:55.091
  • Go on, get out.
  • 00:07:55.091 --> 00:07:56.993
  • I'm not going through thisagain.
  • 00:07:56.993 --> 00:07:58.327
  • I've already been through this."
  • 00:07:58.327 --> 00:08:01.397
  • And fear can make you drive awaypeople who are trying to
  • 00:08:01.397 --> 00:08:04.166
  • help ya.
  • 00:08:04.166 --> 00:08:06.903
  • And so there the Israelites are,mad at Moses, because your
  • 00:08:06.903 --> 00:08:14.176
  • perception of who's with you andwho's against you can be
  • 00:08:14.176 --> 00:08:19.115
  • disrupted by fear.
  • 00:08:19.115 --> 00:08:25.187
  • Fear of rejection.
  • 00:08:25.187 --> 00:08:30.192
  • Fear of disappointment.
  • 00:08:30.192 --> 00:08:34.630
  • Fear of failure can make younot try.
  • 00:08:34.630 --> 00:08:39.035
  • Fear of falling can make you notclimb.
  • 00:08:39.035 --> 00:08:42.672
  • Fear of being defeated can makeyou not fight.
  • 00:08:42.672 --> 00:08:46.976
  • There are a lot of you, you'renot as passive as everybody
  • 00:08:46.976 --> 00:08:49.845
  • thinks you are and you're not asapathetical as they define you
  • 00:08:49.845 --> 00:08:53.316
  • to be, it's just that you'reafraid you'll fall.
  • 00:08:53.316 --> 00:08:58.654
  • So maybe I shouldn't climb.
  • 00:08:58.654 --> 00:09:03.960
  • If I don't climb, I don't fall.
  • 00:09:03.960 --> 00:09:06.662
  • If I don't go, I won't have togo back.
  • 00:09:06.662 --> 00:09:09.065
  • If I'm a slave, I wouldn't haveto deal with this.
  • 00:09:09.065 --> 00:09:11.734
  • Take me back.
  • 00:09:11.734 --> 00:09:14.737
  • And all of a sudden, the sights,the sounds, the smells become
  • 00:09:14.737 --> 00:09:18.708
  • triggers that make us forfeitwhat God has in front of us.
  • 00:09:18.708 --> 00:09:26.215
  • And yet in spite of all of this,in spite of what fear's done to
  • 00:09:26.215 --> 00:09:29.585
  • the mind, in spite of what feardoes to the body, in spite of
  • 00:09:29.585 --> 00:09:34.023
  • all of these circumstances, theBible says that God is going to
  • 00:09:34.023 --> 00:09:39.428
  • get some glory out of this.
  • 00:09:39.428 --> 00:09:46.402
  • Now, I want you to say that withme.
  • 00:09:46.402 --> 00:09:48.704
  • God is going to get some gloryout of this.

  • He would have destroyed 'em.
  • 00:24:05.560 --> 00:24:07.696
  • The miracle was in the movement.
  • 00:24:07.696 --> 00:24:09.865

  • The miracle is in the movement.
  • 00:24:23.478 --> 00:24:25.680

  • to paralyze you with fear andhe's causing all your triggers
  • 00:24:28.250 --> 00:24:32.654
  • to go off, and the Lord said,"If you just keep it moving,
  • 00:24:32.654 --> 00:24:36.491
  • you're gonna walk right into thepower of God and God's going to
  • 00:24:36.491 --> 00:24:40.695
  • get the glory."
  • 00:24:40.695 --> 00:24:45.634

  • you've got to get to the Red Seain order for that to happen.
  • 00:24:49.871 --> 00:24:54.242
  • And the enemy doesn't even wantyou to make it to the Red Sea.
  • 00:24:54.242 --> 00:25:04.252
  • Another thing-- the other reasonGod didn't say anything is that
  • 00:25:08.490 --> 00:25:13.862
  • he wanted Moses to discover whatwas in his hand.
  • 00:25:13.862 --> 00:25:18.767
  • [congregation cheering]
  • 00:25:18.767 --> 00:25:26.708
