  • 00:00:10.260 --> 00:00:11.150
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes:
  • 00:00:13.160 --> 00:00:14.000
  • You took hardship
  • 00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:14.200
  • as a sign that "maybe I wasn't
  • 00:00:14.200 --> 00:00:15.230
  • supposed to do it."
  • 00:00:15.230 --> 00:00:17.000
  • The devil wouldn't be
  • 00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:18.150
  • fighting me if God wasn't
  • 00:00:18.150 --> 00:00:20.210
  • about to bless me.
  • 00:00:20.210 --> 00:00:22.130
  • I'm sick of not walking
  • 00:00:22.130 --> 00:00:23.190
  • in my wisdom.
  • 00:00:23.190 --> 00:00:24.290
  • You can't let nobody around you
  • 00:00:24.290 --> 00:00:26.050
  • make you deny what's in you.
  • 00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:32.120
  • Enough is enough.
  • 00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:34.270
  • Throw your hands up and say,
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:36.090
  • The potter's touch
  • 00:00:52.050 --> 00:00:54.100
  • - Bishop Jakes: How in the
  • 00:00:58.150 --> 00:00:59.050
  • world did the children of God be
  • 00:00:59.050 --> 00:01:01.150
  • silent from God for 20 years
  • 00:01:02.130 --> 00:01:05.130
  • and nobody go looking for him?
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:11.260
  • If you don't hear from
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:12.240
  • your daughter, you ought to call
  • 00:01:12.240 --> 00:01:13.240
  • the Missing Persons.
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:16.160
  • How could God be gone
  • 00:01:16.160 --> 00:01:19.080
  • for 20 years
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:21.040
  • and nobody go looking for him?
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:24.060
  • How could God be gone
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:25.290
  • from your life?
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:32.030
  • How could Saul be anointed
  • 00:01:32.030 --> 00:01:34.130
  • by God and then not seek
  • 00:01:35.000 --> 00:01:38.000
  • the heart of God?
  • 00:01:38.000 --> 00:01:40.190
  • But he did, and God said,
  • 00:01:40.190 --> 00:01:42.270
  • "I've rejected him.
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:43.240
  • I've found a man--I've found
  • 00:01:43.240 --> 00:01:45.290
  • a guy that prioritizes me."
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:55.280
  • That's what it's about.
  • 00:01:55.280 --> 00:01:56.240
  • It's about priority.
  • 00:01:56.240 --> 00:01:58.230
  • "I found a guy that values me.
  • 00:01:58.230 --> 00:02:01.130
  • I found a guy
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:02.060
  • who will put me first.
  • 00:02:02.060 --> 00:02:04.230
  • I found a guy that won't be
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:05.290
  • satisfied to have position
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:07.160
  • without presence.
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:09.270
  • I have found a guy
  • 00:02:09.270 --> 00:02:10.170
  • who is after my heart.
  • 00:02:10.170 --> 00:02:12.260
  • I have found a guy who writes
  • 00:02:12.260 --> 00:02:14.060
  • poetry to me, who sings songs
  • 00:02:14.060 --> 00:02:16.230
  • on the mountaintops to me,
  • 00:02:16.230 --> 00:02:19.070
  • who dances around when nobody
  • 00:02:19.070 --> 00:02:20.250
  • is looking, in my presence.
  • 00:02:20.250 --> 00:02:23.010
  • I have found a guy
  • 00:02:23.010 --> 00:02:24.090
  • who will date me.
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:25.290
  • He flirts with me.
  • 00:02:25.290 --> 00:02:27.170
  • He blows me kisses.
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:29.100
  • I'm gonna make him king
  • 00:02:29.100 --> 00:02:31.170
  • 'cause he is after my heart."
  • 00:02:36.260 --> 00:02:39.260
  • In my text today we are watching
  • 00:02:43.060 --> 00:02:46.060
  • David go after God's heart.
  • 00:02:47.240 --> 00:02:50.240
  • He has been king of Judah
  • 00:02:52.070 --> 00:02:55.070
  • and now Israel.
  • 00:02:55.070 --> 00:02:57.120
  • He has been anointed
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:02:58.150
  • three times.
  • 00:02:58.150 --> 00:03:00.090
  • He has been anointed by Samuel
  • 00:03:00.090 --> 00:03:03.010
  • and told he was gonna be king.
  • 00:03:03.010 --> 00:03:05.130
  • He's been anointed by Judah,
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:07.030
  • because Judah and Israel
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:07.280
  • have now split.
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:09.240
  • They have separated one from
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:10.250
  • another.
  • 00:03:10.250 --> 00:03:12.050
  • The people got a falling out.
  • 00:03:12.050 --> 00:03:13.090
  • Without God to hold 'em together
  • 00:03:13.090 --> 00:03:14.170
  • they fell apart.
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:16.260
  • Without God to hold the family
  • 00:03:16.260 --> 00:03:17.280
  • together it falls apart.
  • 00:03:17.280 --> 00:03:19.260
  • Without God to hold the church
  • 00:03:19.260 --> 00:03:20.230
  • together it falls apart.
  • 00:03:20.230 --> 00:03:22.080
  • Without God to hold the marriage
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:23.120
  • together it falls apart.
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:25.030
  • Children of Israel fallen apart
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:26.130
  • from Judah.
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:27.110
  • They've all gone in their
  • 00:03:27.110 --> 00:03:28.120
  • own way.
  • 00:03:28.120 --> 00:03:29.080
  • Now David has been anointed king
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:30.120
  • over Judah.
  • 00:03:30.120 --> 00:03:32.220
  • Six years later,
  • 00:03:32.220 --> 00:03:34.070
  • he's anointed king over Israel.
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:37.100
  • This is a part of his first act
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:40.190
  • of leadership as king of Israel.
  • 00:03:41.160 --> 00:03:44.160
  • With 30.000 people behind him,
  • 00:03:44.160 --> 00:03:47.000
  • he now says, "I'm going
  • 00:03:47.000 --> 00:03:49.140
  • down there to give the glory.
  • 00:03:51.150 --> 00:03:54.150
  • I'm going after God's heart.
  • 00:03:55.250 --> 00:03:58.250
  • I'm gonna chase it down.
  • 00:03:58.250 --> 00:04:00.090
  • I'm gonna get it.
  • 00:04:00.090 --> 00:04:01.070
  • I'm gonna move every stronghold.
  • 00:04:02.240 --> 00:04:05.240
  • I'm gonna tear down every idol.
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:08.110
  • I'm gonna get rid of the
  • 00:04:08.110 --> 00:04:09.020
  • Jebusites.
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:10.240
  • I'm gonna bring back the glory
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:11.290
  • of the Lord."
  • 00:04:11.290 --> 00:04:13.190
  • And when he got the Ark of the
  • 00:04:13.190 --> 00:04:14.270
  • Covenant, they brought it to him
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:17.010
  • on a new cart, and he said,
  • 00:04:17.010 --> 00:04:19.210
  • "Good.
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:20.140
  • Okay, we're gonna ride it in."
  • 00:04:20.140 --> 00:04:22.030
  • Now, you gotta understand,
  • 00:04:22.030 --> 00:04:23.150
  • you can go about the right thing
  • 00:04:24.200 --> 00:04:27.200
  • the wrong way.
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:30.250
  • You would think
  • 00:04:30.250 --> 00:04:31.150
  • that if you do the right thing
  • 00:04:31.150 --> 00:04:32.230
  • you wouldn't have any hiccups.
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:34.260
  • I'm gonna help somebody today.
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:36.250
  • You would think that if your
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:37.230
  • heart was in the right place,
  • 00:04:37.230 --> 00:04:39.100
  • you wouldn't have any problems.
  • 00:04:39.100 --> 00:04:41.060
  • You would think that
  • 00:04:41.060 --> 00:04:42.010
  • if you meant well everything
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:43.130
  • would go right.
  • 00:04:43.130 --> 00:04:44.220
  • That's what's wrong
  • 00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:45.130
  • with your marriage.
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:46.160
  • You thought if you meant
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:47.060
  • well everything would go right.
  • 00:04:47.060 --> 00:04:48.080
  • You're still gonna have
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:49.000
  • problems.
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:50.000
  • You thought if you was in love
  • 00:04:50.000 --> 00:04:51.020
  • you wouldn't have any problems.
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:52.090
  • You're still gonna have
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:54.060
  • problems.
  • 00:04:54.060 --> 00:04:54.210
  • You thought if you had a degree
  • 00:04:54.210 --> 00:04:55.190
  • you can get on the job.
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:56.240
  • Everything will go good.
  • 00:04:56.240 --> 00:04:57.220
  • You're still gonna have
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:04:59.130
  • problems.
  • 00:05:02.190 --> 00:05:05.190
  • Problems strengthen you.
  • 00:05:06.140 --> 00:05:09.140
  • Problems perfect you.
  • 00:05:09.140 --> 00:05:12.010
  • Problems empower you.
  • 00:05:12.010 --> 00:05:14.220
  • Problems build up
  • 00:05:14.220 --> 00:05:15.180
  • a relationship.
  • 00:05:15.180 --> 00:05:17.180
  • My wife and I are not stronger
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:18.180
  • today because everything
  • 00:05:18.180 --> 00:05:19.290
  • went right for 35 years.
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:22.030
  • We're stronger today because of
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:23.140
  • the things that went wrong, and
  • 00:05:23.140 --> 00:05:25.020
  • we chose to ride over top of 'em
  • 00:05:25.020 --> 00:05:26.260
  • and hold it together anyway.
  • 00:05:26.260 --> 00:05:29.110
  • Somebody ought to shout
  • 00:05:29.110 --> 00:05:30.190
  • in this place right now.
  • 00:05:35.010 --> 00:05:38.010
  • We're together
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:38.250
  • 'cause she got used to living
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:39.250
  • with this crazy guy up here.
  • 00:05:39.250 --> 00:05:41.270
  • She figured out a way
  • 00:05:41.270 --> 00:05:42.280
  • to live with this crazy guy.
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:46.140
  • I figured out a way
  • 00:05:46.140 --> 00:05:47.120
  • to live with her.
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:55.070
  • I know she making faces behind
  • 00:05:55.070 --> 00:05:56.010
  • my back.
  • 00:05:56.010 --> 00:05:57.070
  • I know it.
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:05:58.090
  • I know her.
  • 00:05:58.090 --> 00:05:59.050
  • I know it.
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:05:59.210
  • I know it right now.
  • 00:05:59.210 --> 00:06:01.090
  • I'm gonna say she took the whole
  • 00:06:01.090 --> 00:06:02.050
  • show.
  • 00:06:02.050 --> 00:06:04.140
  • You're facing--all y'all are
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:05.080
  • looking at her.
  • 00:06:05.080 --> 00:06:06.110
  • Nobody looking at me.
  • 00:06:06.110 --> 00:06:08.030
  • The blood of Jesus.
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:14.200
  • Relationships have dysfunctions.
  • 00:06:14.240 --> 00:06:17.240
  • They have problems.
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.000
  • They go through tight places.
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:20.110
  • Ministries go through tight
  • 00:06:20.110 --> 00:06:21.230
  • places.
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:22.240
  • Businesses go through tight
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:23.250
  • places.
  • 00:06:23.250 --> 00:06:24.290
  • You're not gonna build a
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:25.240
  • business and not have a problem.
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:27.200
  • You're gonna have a problem.
  • 00:06:28.000 --> 00:06:31.000
  • David is trying to bring back
  • 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:32.000
  • the ark, but he don't know how
  • 00:06:32.000 --> 00:06:33.140
  • to bring it back.
  • 00:06:33.140 --> 00:06:34.160
  • It's been gone for so long.
  • 00:06:34.160 --> 00:06:36.130
  • He hasn't even experienced the
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:38.110
  • heart of God in his life.
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:44.130
  • God has been gone since he was a
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.220
  • baby.
  • 00:06:45.220 --> 00:06:48.090
  • He doesn't know all the protocol
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:49.190
  • and the routine, so he saw them
  • 00:06:49.190 --> 00:06:51.190
  • bringing him on a cart.
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:53.060
  • He said, "Good.
  • 00:06:53.060 --> 00:06:54.060
  • Let's get a cart."
  • 00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:55.020
  • He hired a couple of them to
  • 00:06:55.020 --> 00:06:56.000
  • drive the cart.
  • 00:06:56.000 --> 00:06:57.000
  • They drive the cart.
  • 00:06:57.000 --> 00:06:57.260
  • Ahio gets behind it.
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:06:59.070
  • He starts cracking the whip.
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:00.230
  • The oxen start going forward.
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:02.140
  • The cart starts moving.
  • 00:07:02.140 --> 00:07:03.220
  • It does real good.
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:05.130
  • It's working real good.

  • real good.
  • 00:07:11.090 --> 00:07:14.090
  • It's secular, but it's working.
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:15.240
  • Y'all didn't hear that.
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:16.230
  • It's secular, but it's working
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:18.150
  • real good.
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:19.140
  • You can go so far in your own
  • 00:07:19.140 --> 00:07:21.170
  • way and it will work real good
  • 00:07:21.170 --> 00:07:24.090
  • for a while, but sooner or later
  • 00:07:24.110 --> 00:07:27.110
  • the ox is gonna trip.
  • 00:07:31.090 --> 00:07:34.090
  • They got to the threshing floor
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:36.090
  • Ornan,
  • 00:07:36.090 --> 00:07:37.030
  • and the ox tripped.
  • 00:07:37.030 --> 00:07:39.100
  • Somebody in this room is in the
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:40.240
  • tripping place.
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:43.080
  • Yeah, your life is tripping
  • 00:07:43.080 --> 00:07:44.090
  • right now.
  • 00:07:44.090 --> 00:07:45.030
  • It was good a minute ago, but
  • 00:07:45.030 --> 00:07:46.140
  • the ox tripped, and now
  • 00:07:46.140 --> 00:07:48.150
  • everything is going crazy and
  • 00:07:48.150 --> 00:07:49.280
  • all of a sudden there is
  • 00:07:49.280 --> 00:07:51.130
  • disruption.
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:53.050
  • David is trying to reconcile
  • 00:07:53.050 --> 00:07:56.010
  • Judah to Israel.
  • 00:07:56.010 --> 00:07:57.160
  • He's trying to reconcile God to
  • 00:07:57.160 --> 00:07:59.230
  • his people.
  • 00:07:59.230 --> 00:08:01.070
  • He's trying to reconcile the Ark
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:03.060
  • of the Covenant back to Zion.
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:05.150
  • He's trying to reconcile all of
  • 00:08:05.150 --> 00:08:06.260
  • this stuff.
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.020
  • Do you really think the devil is
  • 00:08:08.020 --> 00:08:09.220
  • gonna let you reconcile without
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:12.100
  • fighting you somewhere in your

  • life?
  • 00:08:14.050 --> 00:08:16.210
  • Slap your neighbor and say,

  • "This is a fight."
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:24.150
  • This is a fight.
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:26.190
  • Tell your neighbor,
  • 00:08:26.190 --> 00:08:27.050
  • "This is a fight."
  • 00:08:27.050 --> 00:08:29.220
  • Now, a fight will show
  • 00:08:29.220 --> 00:08:31.040
  • what you're made of.
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:34.100
  • A fight will show how bad
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:36.290
  • you want it.
  • 00:08:36.290 --> 00:08:39.060
  • If you get discouraged and walk
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:40.200
  • away and say, "I can't do it,"
  • 00:08:40.200 --> 00:08:41.270
  • you were not the man
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:43.290
  • I thought you were.
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:47.000
  • A fight will really prove to the
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:48.200
  • enemy, come hell or high water,
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:52.060
  • "I want this back."
  • 00:08:52.060 --> 00:08:54.110
  • Somebody say, "I want it back."
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:58.000
  • Oh, my God.
  • 00:08:58.000 --> 00:08:58.240
  • I feel something
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:08:59.180
  • about to break loose.
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:01.230
  • The devil got nervous
  • 00:09:01.230 --> 00:09:02.230
  • when you said "I want it back."
  • 00:09:02.230 --> 00:09:04.190
  • Hell got upset when you said,
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.130
  • "I want it back."
  • 00:09:06.130 --> 00:09:07.150
  • Witches start pacing the floor
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:09.050
  • when I said "I want it back."
  • 00:09:09.050 --> 00:09:10.290
  • Sickness started shaking when
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:12.220
  • you said "I want it back."
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:14.120
  • See, some folks
  • 00:09:19.180 --> 00:09:20.150
  • Lemme come down here.
  • 00:09:29.280 --> 00:09:32.280
  • Some people are afraid to want,
  • 00:09:34.180 --> 00:09:37.180
  • 'cause wanting hurts.
  • 00:09:38.140 --> 00:09:41.140
  • Wanting hurts.
  • 00:09:41.140 --> 00:09:42.120
  • Wanting is uncomfortable.
  • 00:09:42.120 --> 00:09:44.100
  • Wanting is disruptive,
  • 00:09:44.100 --> 00:09:46.110
  • so they anesthetize the pain
  • 00:09:46.110 --> 00:09:48.150
  • of wanting with apathy.
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:52.220
  • "I don't care.
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:56.150
  • I don't need you anyway.
  • 00:09:56.150 --> 00:09:59.090
  • It don't matter to me.
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:01.170
  • I was raised by myself.
  • 00:10:01.170 --> 00:10:04.050
  • I'm used to being by myself.
  • 00:10:04.050 --> 00:10:06.240
  • My siblings didn't like me.
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:08.050
  • I don't need you to.
  • 00:10:08.050 --> 00:10:09.010
  • I don't care."
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:16.220
  • You gotta put the neck in it.
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:18.100
  • It ain't good till you put
  • 00:10:18.100 --> 00:10:19.100
  • the neck in it.
  • 00:10:19.100 --> 00:10:20.060
  • You gotta put the neck in there
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:21.210
  • for emphasis.
  • 00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:22.220
  • "I don't care."
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:27.040
  • Trouble comes to prove,
  • 00:10:27.190 --> 00:10:30.190
  • do you care.
  • 00:10:31.240 --> 00:10:34.240
  • The ox trips to prove,
  • 00:10:35.000 --> 00:10:38.000
  • do you care.
  • 00:10:38.000 --> 00:10:40.020
  • The ox tripped, you know?
  • 00:10:40.020 --> 00:10:42.150
  • The Ark of the Covenant
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:43.110
  • started sliding off the cart.
  • 00:10:43.110 --> 00:10:46.040
  • Uzzah reached out to touch
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:48.060
  • the heart of God.
  • 00:10:49.240 --> 00:10:52.240
  • He reached out to save what came
  • 00:10:52.240 --> 00:10:55.030
  • to save him, and God got mad.
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:11:00.120
  • He said, "I don't need you to
  • 00:11:00.120 --> 00:11:01.060
  • save me.
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:02.060
  • You need me to save you," and
  • 00:11:04.060 --> 00:11:07.060
  • the Lord killed him right on the
  • 00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:10.230
  • spot.
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:13.160
  • The Lord killed Uzzah for trying
  • 00:11:13.160 --> 00:11:15.050
  • to save him, because Uzzah
  • 00:11:16.280 --> 00:11:19.280
  • trying to save God broke
  • 00:11:19.280 --> 00:11:21.270
  • the order.
  • 00:11:23.240 --> 00:11:26.240
  • God said, "I don't need
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:27.210
  • your hand to save me.
  • 00:11:27.210 --> 00:11:29.080
  • You need my hand."
  • 00:11:33.040 --> 00:11:36.040
  • And David threw his hands up.
  • 00:11:37.150 --> 00:11:40.150
  • Uzzah put his hands on.
  • 00:11:40.150 --> 00:11:43.140
  • God killed him for trying
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:44.120
  • to save him.
  • 00:11:44.120 --> 00:11:46.090
  • David threw his hands up
  • 00:11:46.090 --> 00:11:48.170
  • and said, "This is too hard.
  • 00:11:48.170 --> 00:11:49.220
  • I quit.
  • 00:11:49.220 --> 00:11:52.100
  • Take the Ark of the Covenant,
  • 00:11:52.100 --> 00:11:54.230
  • which incidentally I was called
  • 00:11:54.230 --> 00:11:57.000
  • to bring back, and let me
  • 00:11:58.190 --> 00:12:01.210
  • reassign my responsibility
  • 00:12:02.140 --> 00:12:05.140
  • to Obed-Edom.
  • 00:12:05.140 --> 00:12:08.090
  • There are some responsibilities
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:11.020
  • you cannot reassign.
  • 00:12:13.020 --> 00:12:16.020
  • You--[speaking in tongues]
  • 00:12:18.040 --> 00:12:21.040
  • You have the anointing
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:22.160
  • to do this.
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:24.220
  • You cannot reassign this to
  • 00:12:24.220 --> 00:12:26.120
  • somebody else.
  • 00:12:26.120 --> 00:12:28.110
  • God called you to do this.
  • 00:12:28.110 --> 00:12:30.240
  • You have the power to do this.
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:33.190
  • You can't let nobody hurt your
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:35.040
  • feeling so bad that you give up
  • 00:12:35.040 --> 00:12:38.000
  • your place.
  • 00:12:38.000 --> 00:12:40.120
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:12:40.190 --> 00:12:43.190
  • You can't let nobody say
  • 00:12:43.190 --> 00:12:45.120
  • anything that makes you give up
  • 00:12:45.120 --> 00:12:47.040
  • your place.
  • 00:12:47.040 --> 00:12:48.090
  • You can't let nobody around you
  • 00:12:48.090 --> 00:12:50.210
  • - female: Here's to a new
  • 00:13:08.250 --> 00:13:09.140
  • - announcer: Spend a relaxing
  • 00:13:52.200 --> 00:13:53.110
  • intentional week
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:54.120
  • on the Faith and Family cruise
  • 00:13:54.120 --> 00:13:55.200
  • - Bishop Jakes: I'm gonna
  • 00:14:07.000 --> 00:14:07.160
  • tell them.
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:08.050
  • You can't let nobody around you
  • 00:14:08.050 --> 00:14:10.200
  • make you deny what's in you.
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:15.210
  • Throw your hands up and say,
  • 00:14:15.210 --> 00:14:16.140
  • "I want it back."
  • 00:14:21.010 --> 00:14:24.010
  • I don't care if it stumbles.
  • 00:14:24.010 --> 00:14:26.140
  • I don't care if it stops.
  • 00:14:26.140 --> 00:14:28.250
  • I don't care if I have
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:29.200
  • a setback.
  • 00:14:29.200 --> 00:14:31.060
  • I want it back, so David gave up
  • 00:14:32.060 --> 00:14:35.060
  • on his assignment.
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:37.200
  • Now, remember this is the day
  • 00:14:37.200 --> 00:14:39.050
  • that God chose him and made him
  • 00:14:39.270 --> 00:14:42.270
  • king, not because he was kingly.
  • 00:14:44.270 --> 00:14:47.270
  • He chose him because he was
  • 00:14:47.270 --> 00:14:49.250
  • after his heart.
  • 00:14:53.180 --> 00:14:56.180
  • What we are looking at is
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:14:58.140
  • the loss of purpose.
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:04.250
  • If you lose your purpose,
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:08.200
  • you have lost everything.
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:12.010
  • If you keep your title
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:13.130
  • but you lost your purpose,
  • 00:15:14.070 --> 00:15:17.070
  • you have lost everything.
  • 00:15:17.070 --> 00:15:20.020
  • I don't care if they still call
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:21.070
  • you Reverend Dot-dot, reverend,
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:22.280
  • reverend, evangelist, CEO, COO,
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:25.220
  • ABO, CO, DO, IBCDY.
  • 00:15:26.100 --> 00:15:29.100
  • I don't care what they call you.
  • 00:15:29.100 --> 00:15:31.190
  • It is not your title that gives
  • 00:15:31.190 --> 00:15:33.260
  • you power.
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:35.040
  • It's your purpose, when a man
  • 00:15:35.040 --> 00:15:38.020
  • has purpose.
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:40.100
  • Oh, my God.
  • 00:15:40.100 --> 00:15:41.220
  • I feel the glory of the Lord.
  • 00:15:41.220 --> 00:15:43.170
  • When a woman has purpose--I want
  • 00:15:43.260 --> 00:15:46.260
  • every woman of purpose to make
  • 00:15:46.260 --> 00:15:48.200
  • Every man that's got purpose,
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:15:59.150
  • You cannot reassign purpose.
  • 00:16:20.220 --> 00:16:23.220
  • There are certain--I can teach.
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:25.210
  • I can train.
  • 00:16:25.210 --> 00:16:26.290
  • I can talk.
  • 00:16:26.290 --> 00:16:28.160
  • I can help accentuate
  • 00:16:28.160 --> 00:16:30.020
  • what God gave you.
  • 00:16:30.020 --> 00:16:31.230
  • I cannot give you
  • 00:16:31.230 --> 00:16:32.260
  • what God gave me.
  • 00:16:34.170 --> 00:16:37.170
  • I remember a guy told me, he
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:39.280
  • said, "I made you who you are.
  • 00:16:41.010 --> 00:16:44.010
  • If you hadn't preached for me,
  • 00:16:44.010 --> 00:16:46.100
  • you wouldn't have been nobody.
  • 00:16:46.100 --> 00:16:48.170
  • I made Jakes who he is.
  • 00:16:49.200 --> 00:16:52.200
  • Now he won't even come preach
  • 00:16:52.200 --> 00:16:53.190
  • for me.
  • 00:16:53.190 --> 00:16:55.050
  • I made him who he is."
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:57.110
  • So, they come back and told me
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:16:58.110
  • what he said, and I said, "Good.
