  • Elisha goes,this is the same guy
  • 00:01:19.309 --> 00:01:20.176

  • to lock him upbecause of what he could see.
  • 00:01:25.515 --> 00:01:26.049
  • because of what he could see.He had to walk
  • 00:01:26.049 --> 00:01:28.418
  • He had to walkinto a woman's house who said,
  • 00:01:28.418 --> 00:01:30.954
  • into a woman's house who said,"I'm about to go into debt.
  • 00:01:30.954 --> 00:01:33.690
  • "I'm about to go into debt.My husband is dead.
  • 00:01:33.690 --> 00:01:35.959
  • My husband is dead.I have nothing to pay it with.
  • 00:01:35.959 --> 00:01:37.527
  • I have nothing to pay it with.And I have nothing
  • 00:01:37.527 --> 00:01:39.562
  • And I have nothingin my house at all,
  • 00:01:39.562 --> 00:01:41.998
  • in my house at all,except a little oil."
  • 00:01:41.998 --> 00:01:44.067
  • except a little oil."Now this prophet, Elisha,
  • 00:01:44.067 --> 00:01:46.102
  • Now this prophet, Elisha,had the ability to see
  • 00:01:46.102 --> 00:01:47.504
  • had the ability to seein a little bit
  • 00:01:47.504 --> 00:01:49.305
  • in a little bitwhat the woman could not see,
  • 00:01:49.305 --> 00:01:50.073
  • what the woman could not see,because she was looking
  • 00:01:50.073 --> 00:01:52.809
  • because she was lookingthrough a different lens.
  • 00:01:52.809 --> 00:01:54.244
  • through a different lens.A lot of us have thought
  • 00:01:54.244 --> 00:01:55.712
  • A lot of us have thoughtof faith as being this way
  • 00:01:55.712 --> 00:01:57.881
  • of faith as being this waythat we manipulate God.
  • 00:01:57.881 --> 00:01:58.815
  • that we manipulate God.But now we find ourselves
  • 00:01:58.815 --> 00:02:00.183
  • But now we find ourselvesin a season
  • 00:02:00.183 --> 00:02:01.784
  • in a seasonwhere we can't control
  • 00:02:01.784 --> 00:02:03.620
  • where we can't controlalmost anything.
  • 00:02:03.620 --> 00:02:05.021
  • almost anything.We can't control
  • 00:02:05.021 --> 00:02:06.990
  • We can't controlwhat's open and what's closed.
  • 00:02:06.990 --> 00:02:08.124
  • what's open and what's closed.We can't control
  • 00:02:08.124 --> 00:02:09.492
  • We can't controlat some level what happens
  • 00:02:09.492 --> 00:02:10.927
  • at some level what happensat foreign markets
  • 00:02:10.927 --> 00:02:12.128
  • at foreign marketsthat affects us at home,
  • 00:02:12.128 --> 00:02:12.795
  • that affects us at home,what happens
  • 00:02:12.795 --> 00:02:13.796
  • what happensat foreign places.
  • 00:02:13.796 --> 00:02:14.831
  • at foreign places.So, in this season
  • 00:02:14.831 --> 00:02:16.032
  • So, in this seasonof what we can't control,
  • 00:02:16.032 --> 00:02:19.068
  • of what we can't control,we have to redefine faith.
  • 00:02:19.068 --> 00:02:19.435
  • we have to redefine faith.Right?
  • 00:02:19.435 --> 00:02:22.038
  • Right?Because I thought faith
  • 00:02:22.038 --> 00:02:24.340
  • Because I thought faithwas like a lever.
  • 00:02:24.340 --> 00:02:25.909
  • was like a lever.Picture this, and like,
  • 00:02:25.909 --> 00:02:27.177
  • Picture this, and like,when we pull the lever,
  • 00:02:27.177 --> 00:02:29.612
  • when we pull the lever,you know, have faith,
  • 00:02:29.612 --> 00:02:31.347
  • you know, have faith,give 'em praise.
  • 00:02:31.347 --> 00:02:32.715
  • give 'em praise.Hey, give 'em a praise.
  • 00:02:32.715 --> 00:02:34.350
  • Hey, give 'em a praise.You know, when praises go up,
  • 00:02:34.350 --> 00:02:35.485
  • You know, when praises go up,blessings come down.
  • 00:02:35.485 --> 00:02:36.486
  • blessings come down.It's like transactional,
  • 00:02:36.486 --> 00:02:37.053
  • It's like transactional,right?
  • 00:02:37.053 --> 00:02:39.289
  • right?It's like jackpot Jesus.
  • 00:02:39.289 --> 00:02:40.790
  • It's like jackpot Jesus.It's like yes Lord, you know?
  • 00:02:40.790 --> 00:02:42.125
  • It's like yes Lord, you know?Like, I'm a pray my kids
  • 00:02:42.125 --> 00:02:43.726
  • Like, I'm a pray my kidsgonna make straight A's.
  • 00:02:43.726 --> 00:02:45.261
  • gonna make straight A's.I'm a pray and see it'll stop,
  • 00:02:45.261 --> 00:02:46.629
  • I'm a pray and see it'll stop,my headache's gonna go away.
  • 00:02:46.629 --> 00:02:48.865
  • my headache's gonna go away.I'm a pray, pray.
  • 00:02:48.865 --> 00:02:54.003
  • I'm a pray, pray.But see, faith is not a lever.
  • 00:02:54.003 --> 00:02:58.908
  • But see, faith is not a lever.Faith is a lens.
  • 00:02:58.908 --> 00:03:01.844
  • Faith is a lens.A way of seeing your situation.
  • 00:03:01.844 --> 00:03:03.413
  • A way of seeing your situation.And sometimes faith
  • 00:03:03.413 --> 00:03:06.349
  • And sometimes faithchanges the situation.
  • 00:03:06.349 --> 00:03:07.517
  • changes the situation.Sometimes faith changes
  • 00:03:07.517 --> 00:03:10.520
  • Sometimes faith changesthe way you see the situation.
  • 00:03:10.520 --> 00:03:13.556
  • the way you see the situation.Sometimes God changes it.
  • 00:03:13.556 --> 00:03:16.059
  • Sometimes God changes it.Sometimes He changes me.
  • 00:03:16.059 --> 00:03:18.261
  • Sometimes He changes me.But either way,
  • 00:03:18.261 --> 00:03:20.463
  • But either way,even when I don't see it,
  • 00:03:20.463 --> 00:03:24.033
  • even when I don't see it,even when I don't feel it,
  • 00:03:24.033 --> 00:03:24.734
  • even when I don't feel it,come on, you're supposed
  • 00:03:24.734 --> 00:03:25.335
  • come on, you're supposedto say the line.
  • 00:03:25.335 --> 00:03:26.169
  • to say the line.Y'all are the worship team,
  • 00:03:26.169 --> 00:03:26.869
  • Y'all are the worship team,after all.
  • 00:03:26.869 --> 00:03:30.006
  • after all.Especially when I don't see it,
  • 00:03:30.006 --> 00:03:31.374
  • Especially when I don't see it,even when I don't feel it,
  • 00:03:31.374 --> 00:03:32.508
  • even when I don't feel it,especially when I don't feel it,
  • 00:03:32.508 --> 00:03:33.276
  • especially when I don't feel it,and when I don't know it,
  • 00:03:33.276 --> 00:03:34.310
  • and when I don't know it,what do I do?
  • 00:03:34.310 --> 00:03:35.578
  • what do I do?Don't be afraid.
  • 00:03:35.578 --> 00:03:36.879
  • Don't be afraid.So what the prophet told
  • 00:03:36.879 --> 00:03:38.381
  • So what the prophet toldthe woman in 2 Kings 4
  • 00:03:38.381 --> 00:03:39.349
  • the woman in 2 Kings 4is what he's practicing
  • 00:03:39.349 --> 00:03:40.416
  • is what he's practicingin 2 Kings 6.
  • 00:03:40.416 --> 00:03:41.351
  • in 2 Kings 6.Some of us are getting
  • 00:03:41.351 --> 00:03:42.652
  • Some of us are gettingto put into practice
  • 00:03:42.652 --> 00:03:43.353
  • to put into practicefor ourselves
  • 00:03:43.353 --> 00:03:48.524
  • for ourselveswhat we preach to others.
  • 00:03:48.524 --> 00:03:49.459
  • what we preach to others.We preach about peace.
  • 00:03:49.459 --> 00:03:50.793
  • We preach about peace.We preach about God's power.
  • 00:03:50.793 --> 00:03:52.962
  • We preach about God's power.Now we get to prove
  • 00:03:52.962 --> 00:03:53.630
  • Now we get to provethat what God showed us
  • 00:03:53.630 --> 00:03:54.330
  • that what God showed usin the light
  • 00:03:54.330 --> 00:03:57.100
  • in the lightis true in the darkness.
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:03:58.067
  • is true in the darkness.That what God showed us
  • 00:03:58.067 --> 00:03:58.601
  • That what God showed uson the mountain
  • 00:03:58.601 --> 00:04:00.637
  • on the mountainis true in the valley.
  • 00:04:00.637 --> 00:04:01.304
  • is true in the valley.That what God showed us
  • 00:04:01.304 --> 00:04:03.539
  • That what God showed usthe night before is still true
  • 00:04:03.539 --> 00:04:05.341
  • the night before is still truethe next morning.
  • 00:04:05.341 --> 00:04:05.842
  • the next morning.And when that woman
  • 00:04:05.842 --> 00:04:07.110
  • And when that womanwent around to her neighbors
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:08.611
  • went around to her neighborsand she got all
  • 00:04:08.611 --> 00:04:10.179
  • and she got allthese jars, right?
  • 00:04:10.179 --> 00:04:11.881
  • these jars, right?And the oils started flowing,
  • 00:04:11.881 --> 00:04:13.049
  • And the oils started flowing,and the only limitation
  • 00:04:13.049 --> 00:04:14.284
  • and the only limitationto what God could provide
  • 00:04:14.284 --> 00:04:17.186
  • to what God could providewas her capacity to receive it.
  • 00:04:17.186 --> 00:04:19.222
  • was her capacity to receive it.And that's still true.
  • 00:04:19.222 --> 00:04:23.559
  • And that's still true.And so now, Elisha knows
  • 00:04:23.559 --> 00:04:26.229
  • And so now, Elisha knowsthat if this man's heart
  • 00:04:26.229 --> 00:04:27.330
  • that if this man's heartis filled with fear,
  • 00:04:27.330 --> 00:04:29.265
  • is filled with fear,he can't operate in faith,
  • 00:04:29.265 --> 00:04:33.236
  • he can't operate in faith,because you can't be strategic
  • 00:04:33.236 --> 00:04:35.471
  • because you can't be strategicwhen you're scared.
  • 00:04:35.471 --> 00:04:36.472
  • when you're scared.And so that's why
  • 00:04:36.472 --> 00:04:37.540
  • And so that's whyit's so important
  • 00:04:37.540 --> 00:04:39.375
  • it's so importantwhat he says next,
  • 00:04:39.375 --> 00:04:41.110
  • what he says next,that we have a perspective.
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:42.011
  • that we have a perspective.Put that in the chat.
  • 00:04:42.011 --> 00:04:43.346
  • Put that in the chat.Perspective.
  • 00:04:43.346 --> 00:04:44.180
  • Perspective.This is a prayer
  • 00:04:44.180 --> 00:04:45.114
  • This is a prayerfor perspective.
  • 00:04:45.114 --> 00:04:45.882
  • for perspective.This is a prayer
  • 00:04:45.882 --> 00:04:46.649
  • This is a prayerfor perspective.

  • 00:10:25.554 --> 00:10:26.789
  • Something, how couldsomething so small.
  • 00:10:26.789 --> 00:10:27.923
  • something so small.Look what Elijah, the great
  • 00:10:27.923 --> 00:10:29.692
  • Look what Elijah, the greatman of God did in verse 3.
  • 00:10:29.692 --> 00:10:34.530
  • man of God did in verse 3.So "Elijah was afraid."
  • 00:10:34.530 --> 00:10:36.365
  • So "Elijah was afraid."He was afraid.
  • 00:10:36.365 --> 00:10:40.236
  • He was afraid.So he fled and he ran,
  • 00:10:40.236 --> 00:10:42.972
  • So he fled and he ran,and he ran, and he ran.
  • 00:10:42.972 --> 00:10:44.340
  • and he ran, and he ran.Because Jezebel
  • 00:10:44.340 --> 00:10:46.008
  • Because Jezebelcouldn't kill him.
  • 00:10:46.008 --> 00:10:48.444
  • couldn't kill him.So since she couldn't kill him,
  • 00:10:48.444 --> 00:10:49.412
  • So since she couldn't kill him,all she could do

  • 00:10:53.416 --> 00:10:55.484
  • And so, I believethis message is prophetic.
  • 00:10:55.484 --> 00:10:56.886
  • this message is prophetic.Not pathetic,
  • 00:10:56.886 --> 00:10:58.788
  • Not pathetic,prophetic in the sense
  • 00:10:58.788 --> 00:11:01.123
  • prophetic in the sensethat you are allowing something
  • 00:11:01.123 --> 00:11:03.459
  • that you are allowing somethingsmall to block out
  • 00:11:03.459 --> 00:11:05.161

  • 00:11:19.942 --> 00:11:22.044
  • Because I knowthat God's calling is bigger.

  • 00:11:23.279 --> 00:11:25.014
  • And so, why would I letsomething small

  • something smallblock out something big?
  • 00:11:26.882 --> 00:11:28.684

  • When He hung the starsand named them,
  • 00:11:29.985 --> 00:11:31.220

  • All right.So, one, two."
  • 00:12:21.137 --> 00:12:21.804

  • 00:12:21.804 --> 00:12:22.404
  • And then he startscounting the enemy.

  • that we can really dealwith fear,
  • 00:19:12.114 --> 00:19:14.016
  • with fear,cause if we stay in fear,
  • 00:19:14.016 --> 00:19:16.251
  • cause if we stay in fear,then we stay in frustration,
  • 00:19:16.251 --> 00:19:18.020
