  • 00:01:20.009 --> 00:01:20.510
  • So he gets there--Let's look at this
  • 00:01:20.510 --> 00:01:22.145
  • Let's look at thisa little deeper.
  • 00:01:22.145 --> 00:01:23.179
  • a little deeper.Y'all want to keep going?
  • 00:01:23.179 --> 00:01:24.447

  • - Man, the Lord has beenspeaking to me.
  • 00:01:27.083 --> 00:01:28.518
  • speaking to me.It says that when he got
  • 00:01:28.518 --> 00:01:32.021

  • 00:01:32.021 --> 00:01:35.458
  • there he saw a widow who wasworking on her last meal.
  • 00:01:35.458 --> 00:01:36.092

  • arrangements for herand her son to eat.
  • 00:01:38.027 --> 00:01:38.828
  • and her son to eat.And I think the reason
  • 00:01:38.828 --> 00:01:40.130
  • And I think the reasonthe Lord led me to this text
  • 00:01:40.130 --> 00:01:42.732
  • the Lord led me to this textis because so many of us
  • 00:01:42.732 --> 00:01:44.033
  • is because so many of usare worried about our families
  • 00:01:44.033 --> 00:01:46.035
  • are worried about our familiesthese days, you know?
  • 00:01:46.035 --> 00:01:47.470
  • these days, you know?On every level.
  • 00:01:47.470 --> 00:01:49.105
  • On every level.And I'm hearing it from people
  • 00:01:49.105 --> 00:01:50.073
  • And I'm hearing it from peoplewho have young children.
  • 00:01:50.073 --> 00:01:51.074
  • who have young children.I'm hearing it from people
  • 00:01:51.074 --> 00:01:53.109
  • I'm hearing it from peoplewho have elderly parents.
  • 00:01:53.109 --> 00:01:54.144
  • who have elderly parents.We're worried--
  • 00:01:54.144 --> 00:01:57.881
  • We're worried--It's hard for us right now
  • 00:01:57.881 --> 00:02:00.917
  • It's hard for us right nowto trust God with the things
  • 00:02:00.917 --> 00:02:03.419
  • to trust God with the thingsthat we can't control.
  • 00:02:03.419 --> 00:02:05.855
  • that we can't control.And as some of the parents here
  • 00:02:05.855 --> 00:02:07.257
  • And as some of the parents herein Charlotte are getting ready
  • 00:02:07.257 --> 00:02:09.225
  • in Charlotte are getting readyto try to figure out
  • 00:02:09.225 --> 00:02:10.326
  • to try to figure out"How am I going to home school
  • 00:02:10.326 --> 00:02:13.229
  • "How am I going to home schoolmy kids another year, you know,
  • 00:02:13.229 --> 00:02:14.030

  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:17.167
  • when I barely got outof high school myself."
  • 00:02:17.167 --> 00:02:20.069
  • of high school myself."And we're all in this thing
  • 00:02:20.069 --> 00:02:21.504
  • And we're all in this thingtogether in a sense.
  • 00:02:21.504 --> 00:02:22.572
  • together in a sense.The whole nation was going
  • 00:02:22.572 --> 00:02:23.306
  • The whole nation was goingthrough a draught.
  • 00:02:23.306 --> 00:02:25.475
  • through a draught.But now, notice Elijah was not
  • 00:02:25.475 --> 00:02:28.311
  • But now, notice Elijah was notled to somebody that was likely,
  • 00:02:28.311 --> 00:02:30.046
  • led to somebody that was likely,and he was not led to somebody
  • 00:02:30.046 --> 00:02:32.282
  • and he was not led to somebodywho was rich or wealthy.
  • 00:02:32.282 --> 00:02:33.249
  • who was rich or wealthy.He was led to somebody
  • 00:02:33.249 --> 00:02:35.084
  • He was led to somebodythat in the world's eyes
  • 00:02:35.084 --> 00:02:38.721
  • that in the world's eyeswas little.
  • 00:02:38.721 --> 00:02:39.556
  • was little.Be careful what you
  • 00:02:39.556 --> 00:02:42.125
  • Be careful what youlabel "little."
  • 00:02:42.125 --> 00:02:42.926
  • label "little."When you label it little,
  • 00:02:42.926 --> 00:02:46.896
  • When you label it little,it becomes a lid.
  • 00:02:46.896 --> 00:02:47.530
  • it becomes a lid.And some of us have
  • 00:02:47.530 --> 00:02:49.199
  • And some of us haveso compartmentalized how God
  • 00:02:49.199 --> 00:02:52.869
  • so compartmentalized how Godworks and some of us have
  • 00:02:52.869 --> 00:02:54.470
  • works and some of us haveeven belittled ourselves.
  • 00:02:54.470 --> 00:02:55.438
  • even belittled ourselves.Now, you're gonna see
  • 00:02:55.438 --> 00:02:57.740
  • Now, you're gonna seethe woman coming to Elijah
  • 00:02:57.740 --> 00:02:59.576
  • the woman coming to Elijahand she needs a big miracle.

  • How many would agree thatfor God to provide for you

  • me to preach on "little"in a pandemic.
  • 00:03:27.103 --> 00:03:30.006
  • in a pandemic.It felt obscene to preach
  • 00:03:30.006 --> 00:03:33.676
  • It felt obscene to preachabout "a little" when some
  • 00:03:33.676 --> 00:03:37.513
  • about "a little" when someof us need a lot right now.
  • 00:03:37.513 --> 00:03:38.948
  • of us need a lot right now.And the Prophet comes up
  • 00:03:38.948 --> 00:03:43.786
  • And the Prophet comes upto the woman and asks her for
  • 00:03:43.786 --> 00:03:45.955
  • to the woman and asks her fora little--
  • 00:03:45.955 --> 00:03:47.290

  • haven't put a book out.And turning 40 this year got
  • 00:12:36.886 --> 00:12:39.288
  • And turning 40 this year gotme thinking like--
  • 00:12:39.288 --> 00:12:39.922
  • me thinking like--We were talking about this
  • 00:12:39.922 --> 00:12:40.556
  • We were talking about thisthe other day.
  • 00:12:40.556 --> 00:12:42.792
  • the other day.I felt some urgency.
  • 00:12:42.792 --> 00:12:44.160
  • I felt some urgency.And when we were creating songs
  • 00:12:44.160 --> 00:12:45.027
  • And when we were creating songsfor our last album
  • 00:12:45.027 --> 00:12:46.262
  • for our last albumthey just kept coming.
  • 00:12:46.262 --> 00:12:46.796
  • they just kept coming.They kept flowing,
  • 00:12:46.796 --> 00:12:47.763
  • They kept flowing,kept flowing.
  • 00:12:47.763 --> 00:12:50.099
  • kept flowing.Just right to the last minute.
  • 00:12:50.099 --> 00:12:51.200
  • Just right to the last minute.And I decided I was going to try
  • 00:12:51.200 --> 00:12:53.469
  • And I decided I was going to tryto write a book this year.
  • 00:12:53.469 --> 00:12:56.305
  • to write a book this year.And yesterday I took the book
  • 00:12:56.305 --> 00:12:59.708
  • And yesterday I took the bookthrough its second revision
  • 00:12:59.708 --> 00:13:01.977
  • through its second revisionand, with my finger shaking,
  • 00:13:01.977 --> 00:13:04.914
  • and, with my finger shaking,I put it, put the mouse over
  • 00:13:04.914 --> 00:13:06.048
  • I put it, put the mouse oversend on an email
  • 00:13:06.048 --> 00:13:10.686
  • send on an emailand sent it to the editor.
  • 00:13:10.686 --> 00:13:11.787

  • And Holly was tryingto tell me congratulations.
  • 00:13:15.090 --> 00:13:17.860
  • to tell me congratulations.I didn't want to hear it.
  • 00:13:17.860 --> 00:13:19.962
  • I didn't want to hear it.Because if I acknowledge
  • 00:13:19.962 --> 00:13:22.731
  • Because if I acknowledgethat it's a big deal,
  • 00:13:22.731 --> 00:13:23.232
  • that it's a big deal,then it means that
  • 00:13:23.232 --> 00:13:27.369
  • then it means thatit could fail.
  • 00:13:27.369 --> 00:13:27.937
  • it could fail.I shouldn't be telling
  • 00:13:27.937 --> 00:13:30.005

  • my marriage and all this.This is ridiculous.
  • 00:13:38.480 --> 00:13:42.885
  • This is ridiculous.And I got mad, angry 'cause

  • And I got mad, angry 'causereally I was afraid.
  • 00:13:45.988 --> 00:13:50.559
  • really I was afraid.And in the process of analyzing
  • 00:13:50.559 --> 00:13:53.362
  • And in the process of analyzingwhy I was basically telling her,
  • 00:13:53.362 --> 00:13:56.365
  • why I was basically telling her,"Don't try to encourage me!"
  • 00:13:56.365 --> 00:13:58.067
  • "Don't try to encourage me!"She said, she said,
  • 00:13:58.067 --> 00:13:59.635
  • She said, she said,"Congratulations on sending
  • 00:13:59.635 --> 00:14:00.402

  • I said, "It's not a book yet.It's just a document."
  • 00:14:05.207 --> 00:14:06.542
  • It's just a document."You see what I'm doing?
  • 00:14:06.542 --> 00:14:09.078
  • You see what I'm doing?Belittle it.
  • 00:14:09.078 --> 00:14:09.812

  • 'Cause the moment I callit a book,
  • 00:14:12.147 --> 00:14:13.515
  • it a book,the moment I call it a book,
  • 00:14:13.515 --> 00:14:14.083
  • the moment I call it a book,that means that others

  • that means they can judge it.So as long as I keep it little,
  • 00:14:20.422 --> 00:14:22.057
  • So as long as I keep it little,it's a fear move.
  • 00:14:22.057 --> 00:14:26.095
  • it's a fear move.It's just a little oil, right?
  • 00:14:26.095 --> 00:14:27.129
  • It's just a little oil, right?What she was trying to get
  • 00:14:27.129 --> 00:14:29.999

  • 00:15:07.169 --> 00:15:09.438
  • Now do you see why youput yourself down?
  • 00:15:09.438 --> 00:15:11.073
  • put yourself down?Because if you ever come out
  • 00:15:11.073 --> 00:15:12.341
