  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:00:32.240 --> 00:00:34.050
  • Your body may not be,
  • 00:00:34.050 --> 00:00:35.030
  • but your relationship may be.
  • 00:00:35.030 --> 00:00:37.070
  • But if you put your trust in God he will,
  • 00:00:37.070 --> 00:00:43.100
  • no he will deliver you.
  • 00:00:43.100 --> 00:00:46.140
  • He will deliver you.
  • 00:00:47.220 --> 00:00:49.190
  • Say I must trust God.
  • 00:00:49.190 --> 00:00:54.240
  • Let's give him some praise.
  • 00:00:54.240 --> 00:00:56.130
  • Second Samuel, Chapter 22, Verse 3.
  • 00:00:59.070 --> 00:01:00.170
  • Say the word works.
  • 00:01:03.200 --> 00:01:04.290
  • All: The word works.
  • 00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:06.070
  • DeeDee: When you work it.
  • 00:01:06.070 --> 00:01:07.210
  • All: When you work it.
  • 00:01:07.210 --> 00:01:08.230
  • DeeDee: It's so amazing when
  • 00:01:08.230 --> 00:01:09.280
  • you think about kids and how, you know,
  • 00:01:09.280 --> 00:01:11.190
  • they're just so trusting.
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:14.050
  • You know, they're just so like
  • 00:01:14.170 --> 00:01:15.110
  • okay, whatever, yaye.
  • 00:01:15.110 --> 00:01:18.270
  • I think about my grand babies.
  • 00:01:18.270 --> 00:01:20.090
  • Boy you stand in my pit all this marble,
  • 00:01:20.090 --> 00:01:23.050
  • you know, they run around
  • 00:01:23.050 --> 00:01:24.210
  • and [Demi] she all fall and bump her head
  • 00:01:24.210 --> 00:01:27.170
  • she get right back up.
  • 00:01:27.170 --> 00:01:29.030
  • And I'm jumping, you know,
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:30.110
  • but she trusts her ability
  • 00:01:30.110 --> 00:01:32.040
  • to walk up and down these steps
  • 00:01:32.040 --> 00:01:33.170
  • and run just as free and just as, you know,
  • 00:01:33.170 --> 00:01:36.190
  • careless, but yet I'm all like in a panic.
  • 00:01:36.190 --> 00:01:39.270
  • Get, get her.
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:42.040
  • They trust that ability.
  • 00:01:42.150 --> 00:01:43.220
  • They trust what's in them,
  • 00:01:43.220 --> 00:01:45.230
  • but we don't trust what's in us.
  • 00:01:45.230 --> 00:01:49.080
  • Say I must trust what's in me.
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:51.110
  • All: I must trust what's in me.
  • 00:01:51.110 --> 00:01:52.250
  • DeeDee: Second Samuel 22 and Verse three:
  • 00:01:52.250 --> 00:01:55.200
  • "The God of my strength in whom I will trust:
  • 00:01:55.200 --> 00:02:00.070
  • "my shield, and the horn of my salvation,
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:03.190
  • "my strong hold, and my refuge,
  • 00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:05.140
  • "my saviour; you save me from violence."
  • 00:02:05.140 --> 00:02:09.260
  • Look at verse 31:
  • 00:02:09.260 --> 00:02:12.160
  • "As for God, his way is perfect;
  • 00:02:14.240 --> 00:02:18.050
  • "the word of the Lord is proven:
  • 00:02:18.110 --> 00:02:20.140
  • "he is a shield to all who trust in him."
  • 00:02:20.140 --> 00:02:25.100
  • Say I must trust him.
  • 00:02:27.060 --> 00:02:28.110
  • All: I must trust him.
  • 00:02:28.110 --> 00:02:29.200
  • DeeDee: Turn over to Psalms,
  • 00:02:29.200 --> 00:02:30.200
  • Chapter two and verse 12:
  • 00:02:30.200 --> 00:02:34.180
  • It's an easy thing to be able to trust God
  • 00:02:39.220 --> 00:02:42.040
  • and for me it's like-
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:44.040
  • Because I don't like having
  • 00:02:44.040 --> 00:02:45.280
  • the responsibility of taking care of myself
  • 00:02:45.280 --> 00:02:49.080
  • or doing a lot of stuff for myself
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:51.130
  • so it's like if I could relinquish that
  • 00:02:51.130 --> 00:02:53.280
  • that's what I'm gonna do
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:56.080
  • and then I'm gonna relinquish it
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:57.240
  • to somebody that I know who has me.
  • 00:02:57.240 --> 00:03:01.100
  • Are you there Chapter two?
  • 00:03:04.270 --> 00:03:07.200
  • Well two, 2:12.
  • 00:03:07.200 --> 00:03:10.120
  • "Kiss the Son, lest he be angry,
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:13.220
  • "and you perish from the way,
  • 00:03:13.220 --> 00:03:16.170
  • "when his wrath is kindled but a little.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:18.280
  • "Blessed are all they that put their trust in him."
  • 00:03:18.280 --> 00:03:25.050
  • Say put.
  • 00:03:25.050 --> 00:03:26.040
  • All: Put.
  • 00:03:26.040 --> 00:03:27.090
  • DeeDee: Turn to Psalms four and five.
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:29.190
  • Four and five just a couple of books over.
  • 00:03:32.070 --> 00:03:36.150
  • "Offer the sacrifices of righteousness
  • 00:03:36.150 --> 00:03:39.200
  • "and put your trust in the Lord."
  • 00:03:39.200 --> 00:03:42.080
  • Say put.
  • 00:03:42.080 --> 00:03:43.060
  • All: Put.
  • 00:03:43.060 --> 00:03:44.050
  • DeeDee: Psalms 5:11.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:46.160
  • Say I'm going to work the word today.
  • 00:03:47.230 --> 00:03:50.260
  • No, you got to work the word
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:52.070
  • because the word of God
  • 00:03:52.070 --> 00:03:53.170
  • is the only thing that will keep you.
  • 00:03:53.170 --> 00:03:56.050
  • When my relationship was so jacked up
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:00.060
  • with Pastor Mike when I couldn't stand him
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:02.280
  • and he couldn't stand me.
  • 00:04:02.280 --> 00:04:05.060
  • Uh-huh, I didn't like him, he didn't like me.
  • 00:04:05.060 --> 00:04:07.240
  • It's all good.
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:09.110
  • I had to trust God.
  • 00:04:09.210 --> 00:04:12.000
  • I had to do certain things in my relationship
  • 00:04:12.000 --> 00:04:14.140
  • and know that God was going to get his attention.
  • 00:04:14.140 --> 00:04:18.070
  • Because I had to do stuff
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:23.270
  • that most people wouldn't do,
  • 00:04:23.270 --> 00:04:26.250
  • the average woman I would say
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:29.110
  • wouldn't do like to take care of him
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:32.180
  • and serve him even when he acting like a cold fool,
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:36.160
  • you know, because most women would be like,
  • 00:04:36.160 --> 00:04:37.250
  • you know, you do that yourself.
  • 00:04:37.250 --> 00:04:40.160
  • Well because I had my trust in God
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:43.180
  • and not in him I did it anyway.
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:47.020
  • But if I'm not going to do
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:48.280
  • what's required of me I can't put
  • 00:04:48.280 --> 00:04:50.210
  • my trust in God thinking God
  • 00:04:50.210 --> 00:04:52.040
  • is going to do his part.
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:54.130
  • I had to do my part,
  • 00:04:54.130 --> 00:04:56.200
  • so regardless of how I look,
  • 00:04:56.200 --> 00:04:57.260
  • regardless of how things may appear
  • 00:04:57.260 --> 00:05:00.040
  • I still had to work this word.
  • 00:05:00.040 --> 00:05:02.120
  • Regardless of our circumstances,
  • 00:05:02.120 --> 00:05:04.040
  • regardless of our situations,
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:05.280
  • regardless of how bad it was,
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:07.180
  • regardless of how much I did not like him
  • 00:05:07.180 --> 00:05:12.130
  • I had to trust God.
  • 00:05:12.130 --> 00:05:14.070
  • If I wanted my relationship
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:15.220
  • I was going to have to do this.
  • 00:05:15.220 --> 00:05:17.100
  • Listen to me.
  • 00:05:19.070 --> 00:05:20.200
  • Even though you are not facing something right now
  • 00:05:20.200 --> 00:05:25.010
  • an evil day is assigned to your name.
  • 00:05:25.010 --> 00:05:28.250
  • And a lot of people think, you know,
  • 00:05:29.150 --> 00:05:30.240
  • oh life is good,
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:32.080
  • I'm buying that in Jesus name.
  • 00:05:32.080 --> 00:05:34.150
  • The bible says because you live in this earth
  • 00:05:34.150 --> 00:05:37.040
  • you're going to have trials and tribulations
  • 00:05:37.040 --> 00:05:40.010
  • and so your life may be smooth right now,
  • 00:05:40.010 --> 00:05:43.150
  • but just know the devil has your number.
  • 00:05:43.150 --> 00:05:46.220
  • I'm not saying that you have to fall prey to it
  • 00:05:46.220 --> 00:05:49.140
  • or that you have to endure the hardship of it,
  • 00:05:49.140 --> 00:05:52.140
  • but just know it's coming to visit you,
  • 00:05:52.140 --> 00:05:55.050
  • but if you don't know how to trust God
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:57.140
  • you're gonna fall prey to whatever comes your way.
  • 00:05:57.140 --> 00:06:01.090
  • Say I'm not giving in.
  • 00:06:01.090 --> 00:06:02.080
  • All: I'm not giving in.
  • 00:06:02.080 --> 00:06:03.140
  • DeeDee: Say I'm going to know this word.
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:04.200
  • All: I'm going to know this word.
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:05.230
  • DeeDee: Because I don't care
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:06.200
  • how much you praise God.
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:07.280
  • I don't care how much you come to church.
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:10.020
  • I don't care how much
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:11.050
  • you pay your tithes and offering
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.270
  • it's not going to get the devil off of your back.
  • 00:06:12.270 --> 00:06:15.190
  • Jesus when he was in, you know,
  • 00:06:17.000 --> 00:06:18.070
  • being tempted of the devil
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:19.260
  • he had to use the word.
  • 00:06:19.260 --> 00:06:21.040
  • What did he do? "It is written."
  • 00:06:21.040 --> 00:06:24.150
  • He didn't go and say do you know who I am.
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:28.240
  • He didn't say don't you know I pay my tithes.
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:32.170
  • He didn't say don't you know
  • 00:06:32.190 --> 00:06:33.210
  • I am a disciple maker.
  • 00:06:33.210 --> 00:06:35.210
  • He said, "It is written."
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:38.230
  • So if you don't know the word of God,
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:40.290
  • the word of God is the only thing
  • 00:06:40.290 --> 00:06:42.130
  • that's going to keep you.
  • 00:06:42.130 --> 00:06:44.250
  • Say it's only the word that will keep me.
  • 00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:47.150
  • All: It's only the word that will keep me.
  • 00:06:47.150 --> 00:06:48.240
  • DeeDee: Where did I tell you to go? 5:11
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:51.230
  • "But all those rejoice who put their trust in you."
  • 00:06:51.230 --> 00:06:56.250
  • Say put.
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:57.160
  • All: Put.
  • 00:06:57.160 --> 00:06:58.230
  • DeeDee: Okay, I'm going to go onto Psalm 7:1.
  • 00:06:58.230 --> 00:07:02.110
  • You all there?
  • 00:07:08.120 --> 00:07:10.090
  • "O Lord, my God in thee do I put my trust."
  • 00:07:10.090 --> 00:07:15.030
  • Say put.
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:16.030
  • All: Put.
  • 00:07:16.030 --> 00:07:17.010
  • DeeDee: "Save me from all them
  • 00:07:17.010 --> 00:07:18.210
  • "that persecute me and deliver me."
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:20.290
  • Psalm 16:1.
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:23.020
  • I can't take for granted that
  • 00:07:28.040 --> 00:07:29.140
  • you're going to go home and read this.
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:31.040
  • I got to make sure we read it together.
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:33.260
  • 16:1 "Preserve me, O God:
  • 00:07:38.060 --> 00:07:41.060
  • for in thee do I put my trust."
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:44.070
  • Say put.
  • 00:07:44.070 --> 00:07:45.070
  • All: Put.
  • 00:07:45.070 --> 00:07:46.140
  • DeeDee: Psalms 19:1
  • 00:07:46.140 --> 00:07:48.240
  • "And you, O Lord, I put my trust."
  • 00:07:50.180 --> 00:07:55.250
  • Say put.
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:07:56.210
  • All: Put.
  • 00:07:56.210 --> 00:07:57.260
  • DeeDee: "Let me never be ashamed,
  • 00:07:57.260 --> 00:07:59.030
  • "deliver me in your righteousness."
  • 00:07:59.030 --> 00:08:03.120
  • You know we put our trust in so many things
  • 00:08:03.120 --> 00:08:05.140
  • and it was funny because when last night
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:07.100
  • Pastor Mike talked about, you know,
  • 00:08:07.100 --> 00:08:08.150
  • these seats and stuff
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:09.280
  • and how everybody come in
  • 00:08:09.280 --> 00:08:11.130
  • and they take a chair
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:12.170
  • and they never even check the chair
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:14.140
  • to see the weight capacity.
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:16.240
  • They don't flip it over to say,
  • 00:08:16.240 --> 00:08:18.070
  • Oh this chair only holds 200 pounds
  • 00:08:18.070 --> 00:08:20.150
  • or this chair only holds 25 pounds.
  • 00:08:20.150 --> 00:08:22.160
  • They just sit right down
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:24.080
  • trusting the chair that they're in.
  • 00:08:24.080 --> 00:08:27.120
  • We trust so much other stuff.
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:30.060
  • We trust that when we go to sleep at night,
  • 00:08:30.060 --> 00:08:32.240
  • you know, regardless of how nasty
  • 00:08:32.240 --> 00:08:34.130
  • we were before we went to sleep
  • 00:08:34.130 --> 00:08:36.020
  • that we're gonna wake up the next day
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:37.230
  • having a new day.
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:39.290
  • We trust our supervisors
  • 00:08:42.070 --> 00:08:44.070
  • like they got money in the bank
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:45.180
  • to pay us at the end of the week
  • 00:08:45.180 --> 00:08:47.160
  • and we go all week we never ask them
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:49.070
  • can you please show me your checkbook.
  • 00:08:49.070 --> 00:08:52.170
  • We trust man.
  • 00:08:53.250 --> 00:08:55.090
  • We're quick to trust everything else around us.
  • 00:08:55.090 --> 00:08:58.120
  • We trust that our cars are going to start up
  • 00:08:58.120 --> 00:09:00.250
  • when we go out there,
  • 00:09:00.250 --> 00:09:02.130
  • when we get ready to leave,
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:03.240
  • well some of you do.
  • 00:09:03.240 --> 00:09:06.010
  • But the ones that don't
  • 00:09:06.180 --> 00:09:07.230
  • you have jumper cables in your car
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:09.090
  • and you trust that somebody is going to stop
  • 00:09:09.090 --> 00:09:11.040
  • and give you a jump.
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:12.270
  • We trust so many people,
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:16.180
  • but the bible says to put.
  • 00:09:16.180 --> 00:09:19.060
  • Say put.
  • 00:09:19.060 --> 00:09:19.290
  • All: Put.
  • 00:09:19.290 --> 00:09:21.060
  • DeeDee: God isn't going to make you trust him.
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:24.080
  • That's why I said trust is a choice.
  • 00:09:24.080 --> 00:09:27.050
  • You have to "put" your trust in God.
  • 00:09:27.050 --> 00:09:30.090
  • I got a little illustration right here,
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:31.250
  • let's see, how do you put your trust in God.
  • 00:09:31.250 --> 00:09:36.030
  • I need something.
  • 00:09:36.030 --> 00:09:37.150
  • Would you let me have them earrings
  • 00:09:37.150 --> 00:09:40.010
  • that you have on if I give you this 50 dollars.
  • 00:09:40.010 --> 00:09:44.010
  • Thank you so much. Thank you babe.
  • 00:09:52.180 --> 00:09:55.120
  • Is there two? Oh cool, thank you.
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:57.010
  • I appreciate that.
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:59.060
  • All right. Psalms eight-
  • 00:09:59.190 --> 00:10:01.140
  • (laughter)
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:02.250
  • DeeDee: Why you all laughing?
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:07.100
  • Why you all laugh?
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.190
  • Because I ain't giving her money.
  • 00:10:09.190 --> 00:10:12.100
  • What?
  • 00:10:12.100 --> 00:10:14.040
  • She didn't ask me for the money.
  • 00:10:15.100 --> 00:10:16.240
  • I was going to give it to her.
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:17.250
  • I told her and she trusts me.
  • 00:10:17.250 --> 00:10:20.210
  • That's just how you put your trust in God.
  • 00:10:20.210 --> 00:10:23.260
  • It's like God I'll give it to you
  • 00:10:23.260 --> 00:10:26.170
  • and I'll walk away.
  • 00:10:26.170 --> 00:10:28.100
  • I know you got me.
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:30.110
  • I know you're going to keep your word.
  • 00:10:30.110 --> 00:10:32.140
  • I know you're going to do
  • 00:10:32.140 --> 00:10:33.190
  • what you said you was going to do.
  • 00:10:33.190 --> 00:10:36.050
  • It's not based upon, you know,
  • 00:10:36.050 --> 00:10:38.030
  • whether or not I see it right now.
  • 00:10:38.030 --> 00:10:40.090
  • No, I believe I receive.
  • 00:10:40.090 --> 00:10:43.100
  • Either you believe that you receive or you don't.
  • 00:10:44.090 --> 00:10:48.270
  • She cast it, she gave it to me,
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:52.240
  • and I walked away.
  • 00:10:52.240 --> 00:10:54.160
  • Well, like, if she was up
  • 00:10:54.160 --> 00:10:55.250
  • she would have walked away
  • 00:10:55.250 --> 00:10:57.000
  • and that was it.
  • 00:10:57.000 --> 00:10:57.290
  • That's how you put.
  • 00:10:57.290 --> 00:10:59.020
  • Say I put.
  • 00:10:59.020 --> 00:10:59.230
  • All: I put.
  • 00:10:59.230 --> 00:11:00.190
  • DeeDee: No, say I put.
  • 00:11:00.190 --> 00:11:01.200
  • All: I put.
  • 00:11:01.200 --> 00:11:02.250
  • DeeDee: I'm going to keep my word.
  • 00:11:02.250 --> 00:11:03.220
  • Here, take the money girl.
  • 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:06.020
  • And you can have your earrings back
  • 00:11:06.250 --> 00:11:08.070
  • because I don't want them.
  • 00:11:08.070 --> 00:11:09.220
  • They're all little.
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:11.180
  • Say that's how you put.
  • 00:11:16.160 --> 00:11:17.200
  • All: That's how you put.
  • 00:11:17.200 --> 00:11:19.040
  • DeeDee: Psalms 118, Verse eight.
  • 00:11:19.040 --> 00:11:22.100
  • 118:8 "It is better to trust in the Lord
  • 00:11:27.040 --> 00:11:31.050
  • "than to put confidence in man."
  • 00:11:31.050 --> 00:11:34.220
  • Lord Jesus, let's read that again.
  • 00:11:37.100 --> 00:11:40.010
  • Let's read that together.
  • 00:11:40.010 --> 00:11:42.220
  • "It is better to trust in the Lord
  • 00:11:42.220 --> 00:11:45.290
  • "than to put confidence in man."
  • 00:11:45.290 --> 00:11:49.210
  • We put so much confidence in man.
  • 00:11:49.210 --> 00:11:53.130
  • So much confidence and as soon as
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:56.030
  • a disappointment comes
  • 00:11:56.030 --> 00:11:57.170
  • now we can't go on anymore.
  • 00:11:57.170 --> 00:12:00.140
  • I remember how I used to have
  • 00:12:00.140 --> 00:12:01.190
  • so much confidence in Pastor Mike.
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:03.230
  • When I first got married I thought this man
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:05.220
  • was going to love me the way
  • 00:12:05.220 --> 00:12:07.030
  • that he was supposed to love me.
  • 00:12:07.030 --> 00:12:08.050
  • He was going to be nice to me
  • 00:12:08.050 --> 00:12:09.110
  • and treat me the way that he treated me
  • 00:12:09.110 --> 00:12:11.040
  • before I said "I do."
  • 00:12:11.040 --> 00:12:13.210
  • And then after I went and we said "I do"
  • 00:12:14.000 --> 00:12:16.050
  • it was like his head spun around
  • 00:12:16.050 --> 00:12:19.130
  • and green stuff started coming out of his mouth.
  • 00:12:19.130 --> 00:12:22.050
  • Yes, your pastor.
  • 00:12:22.050 --> 00:12:24.140
  • And I'm thinking what in the world is this?
  • 00:12:26.190 --> 00:12:29.270
  • And so I would have confidence
  • 00:12:29.270 --> 00:12:31.120
  • every day he gonna come home,
  • 00:12:31.120 --> 00:12:32.180
  • he gonna treat me nice today
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:34.120
  • and then he would come home
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:35.100
  • and he would be the same way.
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:37.060
  • And it was like I couldn't go on.
  • 00:12:37.060 --> 00:12:39.150
  • Oh, I was so distraught.
  • 00:12:39.150 --> 00:12:41.220
  • I was so depressed.
  • 00:12:41.220 --> 00:12:43.220
  • Oh my heart ached.
  • 00:12:43.220 --> 00:12:46.030
  • I just wanna die.
  • 00:12:46.030 --> 00:12:47.200
  • All over a man who does not define me.
  • 00:12:47.200 --> 00:12:53.240
  • God gives us definition.
  • 00:12:55.090 --> 00:12:57.230
  • God is the one that created us
  • 00:12:57.230 --> 00:12:59.180
  • to be in his image and yet we allow man
  • 00:12:59.180 --> 00:13:03.180
  • to define us to make us to feel
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.280
  • a certain way about ourselves.
  • 00:13:05.280 --> 00:13:09.000
  • Say I must trust God.
  • 00:13:10.170 --> 00:13:11.210
  • All: I must trust God.
  • 00:13:11.210 --> 00:13:13.030
  • DeeDee: Stop trusting your supervisor.
  • 00:13:13.030 --> 00:13:15.070
  • Stop trusting this government.
  • 00:13:15.070 --> 00:13:17.240
  • Put your trust in God because things
  • 00:13:17.240 --> 00:13:19.200
  • are not going to get better.
  • 00:13:19.200 --> 00:13:22.080
  • Now listen to me.
  • 00:13:22.080 --> 00:13:23.210
  • This earth, this world,
  • 00:13:23.210 --> 00:13:25.040
  • things are not going to get better.
  • 00:13:25.040 --> 00:13:27.260
  • So we're going to have to trust God.
  • 00:13:27.260 --> 00:13:31.070
  • I believe it's like the devil has put
  • 00:13:31.220 --> 00:13:33.200
  • this world and this earth in a pressure cooker
  • 00:13:33.200 --> 00:13:37.120
  • and turning things up
  • 00:13:37.120 --> 00:13:39.290
  • and if you don't trust God
  • 00:13:40.240 --> 00:13:42.060
  • we're gonna really see those that trust God.
  • 00:13:42.060 --> 00:13:45.100
  • Your faith is going to make
  • 00:13:45.100 --> 00:13:46.130
  • an open show of who you are.
  • 00:13:46.130 --> 00:13:49.110
  • Say I must believe.
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:51.250
  • All: I must believe.
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:53.220
  • DeeDee: Psalm 125, verse one.
  • 00:13:53.220 --> 00:13:57.030
  • "Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,"
  • 00:13:58.180 --> 00:14:01.140
  • Say that's me, that's me, that's me.
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:03.280
  • "which cannot be moved."
  • 00:14:03.280 --> 00:14:05.180
  • Say I will not be moved.
  • 00:14:05.180 --> 00:14:07.210
  • All: I will not be moved.
  • 00:14:07.210 --> 00:14:09.070
  • DeeDee: "but abides forever."
  • 00:14:09.070 --> 00:14:11.260
  • Proverbs three, verse five, everybody know this one.
  • 00:14:11.260 --> 00:14:20.090
  • "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart,"
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:25.100
  • Does this say some?
  • 00:14:25.100 --> 00:14:27.020
  • No, it says: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart
  • 00:14:27.020 --> 00:14:31.040
  • "and lean not unto thine own understanding.
  • 00:14:31.040 --> 00:14:34.190
  • "In all thy ways acknowledge him,
  • 00:14:34.190 --> 00:14:38.150
  • "and he shall direct thy paths."
  • 00:14:38.150 --> 00:14:42.080
  • All you got to do is trust God.
  • 00:14:42.080 --> 00:14:44.180
  • I know how it feels.
  • 00:14:44.180 --> 00:14:46.260
  • Pastor Mike told them on last night
  • 00:14:47.230 --> 00:14:49.190
  • even though this is a time of celebration
  • 00:14:49.190 --> 00:14:51.240
  • and this is a happy time, you know,
  • 00:14:51.240 --> 00:14:53.180
  • that we have had in our 20 years of ministry.
  • 00:14:56.100 --> 00:14:59.240
  • I mean for a number of things.
  • 00:14:59.240 --> 00:15:01.040
  • Not with our relationship.
  • 00:15:01.040 --> 00:15:02.110
  • Thank God that's solid because I think
  • 00:15:02.110 --> 00:15:03.230
  • I probably would hurt him right about now,
  • 00:15:03.230 --> 00:15:08.030
  • but I mean in 20 years it's like
  • 00:15:08.270 --> 00:15:11.120
  • all hell tried to, you know, break loose.
  • 00:15:11.120 --> 00:15:14.160
  • Like the devil wanted to show his tail,
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:16.290
  • but I don't care because I trust God.
  • 00:15:16.290 --> 00:15:20.170
  • God, if you did it before
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:22.210
  • you will do it again.
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:24.190
  • The same God back then.
  • 00:15:24.190 --> 00:15:26.260
  • The same God right now.
  • 00:15:26.260 --> 00:15:29.130
  • Just like David.
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:30.080
  • We all talk about David
  • 00:15:30.080 --> 00:15:31.210
  • and we know the story of David
  • 00:15:31.210 --> 00:15:33.040
  • how David, you know, the way he was able
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:35.090
  • to stand before Goliath and slew Goliath
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:38.040
  • is because he knew what God
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:39.290
  • had done for him in the past.
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:43.010
  • He said "I know God.
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:46.030
  • "God will deliver me
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:48.030
  • "just like he delivered me out of
  • 00:15:48.030 --> 00:15:49.250
  • "the hands of the lion,
  • 00:15:49.250 --> 00:15:51.100
  • "out of the hands of the bear,
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:52.270
  • "he will deliver me from the hands
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.230
  • "of this giant Philistine,"
  • 00:15:54.230 --> 00:15:57.010
  • this uncircumcised Philistine,
  • 00:15:57.010 --> 00:16:01.010
  • but if you can't recall
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:02.060
  • what God has done for you in the past
  • 00:16:02.060 --> 00:16:06.040
  • you're gonna have a hard time.
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:08.150
  • And you know I like that story about David, too.
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:10.240
  • I just thought about this.
  • 00:16:10.240 --> 00:16:11.280
  • This is God it's like, you know,
  • 00:16:11.280 --> 00:16:14.050
  • when David was getting ready
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:15.100
  • to go up against Goliath
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:17.220
  • how Saul came to him
  • 00:16:17.220 --> 00:16:19.030
  • and tried to give him his armor,
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:21.230
  • you know, tried to put him on his stuff,
  • 00:16:21.230 --> 00:16:23.220
  • gave him his sword and, you know,
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:26.010
  • his helmet or his breast plate
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:28.080
  • and then David began to try to walk in it,
  • 00:16:28.080 --> 00:16:31.100
  • but it just didn't fit.
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:33.220
  • It's like this ain't even me
  • 00:16:33.220 --> 00:16:36.100
  • because David knew that I couldn't
  • 00:16:36.100 --> 00:16:38.220
  • put confidence in something that
  • 00:16:38.220 --> 00:16:40.240
  • I have not tested.
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:43.010
  • Something that it has not been tried for me.
  • 00:16:43.010 --> 00:16:46.140
  • The only thing that you can put confidence
  • 00:16:46.140 --> 00:16:48.170
  • and trust in is what has worked for you.
  • 00:16:48.170 --> 00:16:52.010
  • That's why you got to know God for yourselves.
  • 00:16:52.010 --> 00:16:55.250
  • It's good to hear other people's testimonies,
  • 00:16:55.250 --> 00:16:58.030
  • but it's even better
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:16:59.190
  • to know what God has done for you.
  • 00:16:59.190 --> 00:17:02.140
  • David said "I remember, I recall
  • 00:17:02.140 --> 00:17:07.060
  • "what God has done for me in the past,
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:09.210
  • "so just let me work
  • 00:17:09.210 --> 00:17:11.120
  • "what I've been working all the time."
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:14.270
  • You don't need anybody else's testimonial,
  • 00:17:15.130 --> 00:17:18.020
  • anybody else's armor
  • 00:17:18.020 --> 00:17:19.180
  • or anybody's else's situation
  • 00:17:19.180 --> 00:17:21.200
  • to prove to you how good God is.
  • 00:17:21.200 --> 00:17:25.050
  • Just like what has happened to our friend.
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:28.270
  • His testimony doesn't define who I am in God.
  • 00:17:28.270 --> 00:17:32.260
  • Just because he killed himself
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:34.100
  • and the stresses and the circumstances of his life
  • 00:17:34.100 --> 00:17:37.010
  • doesn't mean that I'm going to kill myself.
  • 00:17:37.010 --> 00:17:40.190
  • And I decree this is not going
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:43.140
  • to be the testimony of his kids.
  • 00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:46.230
  • Say I got to work what I know.
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.230
  • All: I got to work what I know.
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:54.000
  • DeeDee: No, say I got to work what I know.
  • 00:17:54.000 --> 00:17:55.080
  • All: I got to work what I know.
  • 00:17:55.080 --> 00:17:57.150
  • DeeDee: Go to Proverbs 30.
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:18:00.090
  • 30:5 "Every word of God is pure:
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:11.200
  • "It is a shield to those who put,"
  • 00:18:12.260 --> 00:18:15.200
  • Say put.
  • 00:18:15.200 --> 00:18:16.230
  • All: Put.
  • 00:18:16.230 --> 00:18:17.210
  • DeeDee: "Their trust in him."
  • 00:18:17.210 --> 00:18:20.040
  • Isaiah 26 Verse three:
  • 00:18:20.240 --> 00:18:24.190
  • "You will keep him in perfect peace."
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:31.070
  • Say perfect peace.
  • 00:18:31.070 --> 00:18:32.090
  • All: Perfect peace.
  • 00:18:32.090 --> 00:18:33.130
  • DeeDee: We all want perfect peace.
  • 00:18:33.130 --> 00:18:36.110
  • We all want perfect peace.
  • 00:18:36.190 --> 00:18:38.260
  • There's torment when there's not perfect peace.
  • 00:18:38.260 --> 00:18:43.000
  • Say I want perfect peace.
  • 00:18:43.000 --> 00:18:44.230
  • All: I want perfect peace.
  • 00:18:44.230 --> 00:18:46.050
  • DeeDee: Well listen, this is what you got to do:
  • 00:18:46.050 --> 00:18:47.030
  • "Whose mind is stayed on you,
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:50.140
  • "because he trusts in you.
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:55.020
  • "Trust in the Lord forever,"
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:57.010
  • Say forever.
  • 00:18:57.010 --> 00:18:58.040
  • All: Forever.
  • 00:18:58.040 --> 00:18:59.120
  • DeeDee: "For in Yah, the Lord,

  • "is everlasting strength."
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:05.260
  • In order for your mind to be kept

  • you're gonna have to trust in the Lord
  • 00:19:08.160 --> 00:19:11.160
  • because the devil is a coward.
  • 00:19:11.160 --> 00:19:13.200
  • The devil stands back off of you
  • 00:19:13.200 --> 00:19:16.170
  • and he looks at the situations in your life.
  • 00:19:16.170 --> 00:19:19.100
  • He looks at the circumstances
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:20.230
  • that you are facing
  • 00:19:20.230 --> 00:19:22.100
  • and he takes thoughts and he throws them
  • 00:19:22.100 --> 00:19:24.190
  • to your mind to cause torment
  • 00:19:24.190 --> 00:19:27.120
  • to cause you to take the thought
  • 00:19:27.120 --> 00:19:28.280
  • and let it allow to grow in your heart,

  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:38.290
  • you can cast it down knowing

  • these things seem to be
  • 00:19:48.280 --> 00:19:50.270
  • God I will think on you.
  • 00:19:50.270 --> 00:19:53.240

  • 00:20:48.280 --> 00:20:52.230
  • Anything God has promised you he's good for it.
  • 00:20:52.230 --> 00:20:57.010
  • Come on, he says that I'm good for it.
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:20:59.130
  • I'm not like man that I have to repent,

  • You know Pastor Mike he loves going
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:39.050
  • to the range and, you know,
  • 00:21:39.050 --> 00:21:41.120
  • to shoot out in the back yard or whatever,
  • 00:21:41.120 --> 00:21:44.090
  • and oh this is amazing to me
  • 00:21:44.090 --> 00:21:45.280
  • because maybe about a week ago
  • 00:21:45.280 --> 00:21:47.090
  • I realized why I was having challenges with,
  • 00:21:47.090 --> 00:21:50.200
  • you know, shooting.
  • 00:21:50.200 --> 00:21:52.080
  • It's like guns or something to me just kind
  • 00:21:52.080 --> 00:21:54.070
  • of just make me shake.
  • 00:21:54.070 --> 00:21:56.170
  • It's like just the thought of it
  • 00:21:56.170 --> 00:21:58.100
  • I just don't like them.
  • 00:21:58.100 --> 00:21:59.230
  • You know, I don't like them,
  • 00:21:59.230 --> 00:22:01.090
  • but I'm gonna get it so if somebody come in I'll try.
  • 00:22:01.090 --> 00:22:05.290
  • I'm gonna act like I'm real confident with it.
  • 00:22:07.140 --> 00:22:11.120
  • I just need you all to know that.
  • 00:22:11.120 --> 00:22:13.110
  • That's for anybody that may be sitting in here
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:14.260
  • right now had any ideas,
  • 00:22:14.260 --> 00:22:17.260
  • but I mean really I just technically
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:20.230
  • don't like, you know, guns or whatever,
  • 00:22:20.230 --> 00:22:23.060
  • but there have been times when
  • 00:22:23.060 --> 00:22:24.270
  • we go out back and he's out there shooting
  • 00:22:24.270 --> 00:22:27.120
  • and trying to show me how to hold the gun
  • 00:22:27.120 --> 00:22:29.170
  • and shoot or whatever.
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:30.280
  • You know, it's like you ever shot a gun
  • 00:22:30.280 --> 00:22:34.060
  • or tried to pull a trigger
  • 00:22:34.060 --> 00:22:35.130
  • and the thing is locked
  • 00:22:35.130 --> 00:22:36.210
  • and you got to unlock it or whatever
  • 00:22:36.210 --> 00:22:38.170
  • it's like it just gets stuck
  • 00:22:38.170 --> 00:22:40.020
  • and it just won't fire.
  • 00:22:40.020 --> 00:22:42.070
  • That's what this is like.
  • 00:22:42.070 --> 00:22:43.140
  • It's like none of God's words ever get stuck.

  • uh-huh praise God.
  • 00:23:23.160 --> 00:23:25.280
  • Joshua has given us a lot of preaching material.

  • Mama's so well loved son.
  • 00:23:42.020 --> 00:23:45.020
  • Well when Joshua, you know,
  • 00:23:45.020 --> 00:23:46.210
  • got in this situation and he decided
  • 00:23:46.210 --> 00:23:48.210
  • to disobey and allow people in his car
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:52.130
  • and, you know, do whatever he wanted to do,
  • 00:23:52.130 --> 00:23:54.080
  • go to this fight and you know
  • 00:23:54.080 --> 00:23:56.250
  • the guy gets in the car
  • 00:23:56.250 --> 00:23:58.030
  • for some of you who don't know the story.
  • 00:23:58.030 --> 00:24:00.180
  • The guy in his back seat of his car shot
  • 00:24:00.180 --> 00:24:02.250
  • the gun out of the back of his car.
  • 00:24:02.250 --> 00:24:04.150
  • Joshua was about 17 I believe at the time.
  • 00:24:04.150 --> 00:24:07.120
  • Almost right there at before they cut
  • 00:24:07.120 --> 00:24:10.200
  • that, you know, that adult,
  • 00:24:10.200 --> 00:24:12.150
  • you know coming out of
  • 00:24:12.150 --> 00:24:14.290
  • juvenile into the adult charges, you know,
  • 00:24:16.090 --> 00:24:22.170
  • okay praise Jesus.
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:23.190
  • I know you know,
  • 00:24:23.190 --> 00:24:24.260
  • but anyway Joshua was about 17 at the time
  • 00:24:24.260 --> 00:24:28.090
  • so the guy shoots the thing out the,
  • 00:24:28.090 --> 00:24:30.110
  • you know, the car and Joshua runs
  • 00:24:30.110 --> 00:24:31.210
  • and Joshua gets locked up
  • 00:24:31.210 --> 00:24:34.160
  • and they put him in jail
  • 00:24:34.160 --> 00:24:35.230
  • and they would not allow us to see Joshua.
  • 00:24:35.230 --> 00:24:40.140
  • And I don't know about you,
  • 00:24:40.140 --> 00:24:43.060
  • but that is the worst pain and situation
  • 00:24:43.060 --> 00:24:50.140
  • that a mother could be in.
  • 00:24:50.140 --> 00:24:53.180
  • I mean it hurt so bad and then
  • 00:24:53.180 --> 00:24:57.200
  • it's like he's in a system that I cannot touch.
  • 00:24:57.200 --> 00:25:02.200
  • It's like I can't even penetrate it.
  • 00:25:02.200 --> 00:25:05.130
  • How do you get behind the bars
  • 00:25:05.130 --> 00:25:08.070
  • even when you can't get in?
  • 00:25:08.070 --> 00:25:11.040
  • How do you see your boy when
  • 00:25:11.040 --> 00:25:13.120
  • they say you can't see your boy.
  • 00:25:13.120 --> 00:25:16.130
  • What do you do in that situation?
  • 00:25:17.030 --> 00:25:19.100
  • When the pain is so hurtful.
  • 00:25:19.100 --> 00:25:21.250
  • It's like you're tormented
  • 00:25:21.250 --> 00:25:23.090
  • and you're going through
  • 00:25:23.090 --> 00:25:24.080
  • and you're blaming yourself
  • 00:25:24.080 --> 00:25:25.160
  • thinking "What have I done wrong?
  • 00:25:25.160 --> 00:25:28.090
  • "What could I have done different?
  • 00:25:28.090 --> 00:25:29.270
  • "What did I miss?
  • 00:25:29.270 --> 00:25:31.130
  • "How did I not hear God."
  • 00:25:31.130 --> 00:25:34.220
  • And then they tell us, you know,
  • 00:25:36.190 --> 00:25:38.040
  • after going through this process
  • 00:25:38.040 --> 00:25:39.190
  • that he could get 25 years to life.
  • 00:25:39.190 --> 00:25:42.260
  • Not mama's boy.
  • 00:25:43.200 --> 00:25:46.070
  • What do you do?
  • 00:25:47.050 --> 00:25:49.030
  • I'm gonna tell you what you do.
  • 00:25:49.030 --> 00:25:51.020
  • You put your trust in God.
  • 00:25:51.020 --> 00:25:56.080
  • No, listen to me.
  • 00:25:57.080 --> 00:25:58.180
  • You put your trust in God.
  • 00:25:58.180 --> 00:26:03.110
  • I never skipped a beat.
  • 00:26:03.110 --> 00:26:05.090
  • Nobody in church could look at us
  • 00:26:05.090 --> 00:26:07.270
  • and tell that anything was going wrong with us.
  • 00:26:07.270 --> 00:26:11.100
  • We dealt with the situation privately,
  • 00:26:11.100 --> 00:26:13.150
  • had our emotional time
  • 00:26:13.150 --> 00:26:15.110
  • and have Brittney to correct us
  • 00:26:15.110 --> 00:26:16.220
  • and tell us to get ourselves together
  • 00:26:16.220 --> 00:26:18.260
  • even when we wanted to quit.
  • 00:26:18.260 --> 00:26:20.200
  • You want to fall out on the floor,
  • 00:26:20.200 --> 00:26:22.130
  • cry and act a cold fool.
  • 00:26:22.130 --> 00:26:24.230
  • You want to go bang down the windows.
  • 00:26:24.230 --> 00:26:26.190
  • You want to have a bus or raid or something
  • 00:26:26.190 --> 00:26:29.070
  • to, you know, break him out,
  • 00:26:29.070 --> 00:26:32.010
  • because somebody made a mistake
  • 00:26:33.140 --> 00:26:35.020
  • that's how you feel,
  • 00:26:35.020 --> 00:26:36.200
  • but the only thing I could do
  • 00:26:36.200 --> 00:26:39.070
  • and the best thing I could do was
  • 00:26:39.070 --> 00:26:41.220
  • to cast my care upon God knowing
  • 00:26:41.220 --> 00:26:46.090
  • that he is perfecting those things
  • 00:26:46.090 --> 00:26:48.160
  • that concern me if he said it
  • 00:26:48.160 --> 00:26:51.080
  • he's gonna make it good.
  • 00:26:51.080 --> 00:26:53.060
  • "The seed of the righteous shall be delivered."
  • 00:26:53.060 --> 00:26:56.240
  • God is in your word.
  • 00:26:56.240 --> 00:26:58.190
  • My boy has to be free.
  • 00:26:58.190 --> 00:27:00.260
  • I called him free.
  • 00:27:00.260 --> 00:27:02.100
  • I rest in you, I am careless
  • 00:27:02.100 --> 00:27:06.130
  • because I put my trust in you.
  • 00:27:07.190 --> 00:27:13.100
  • If you're not going to put your trust in God
  • 00:27:13.100 --> 00:27:15.290
  • your situation is going to overtake you,
  • 00:27:15.290 --> 00:27:18.210
  • but I'm standing here today as a testimony

  • to allow you to know
  • 00:27:21.110 --> 00:27:22.220
  • if God did it for me regardless

  • of what your situation may be.
  • 00:27:25.130 --> 00:27:27.200
  • Your boy may not be locked up,
  • 00:27:27.200 --> 00:27:29.180
  • but your finances might be.
  • 00:27:29.180 --> 00:27:32.180
  • Your finances might not be,
  • 00:27:32.180 --> 00:27:34.130
