  • [CONGREGATION CLAPPING]
  • 00:01:00.817 --> 00:01:02.318
  • HEY EVERYONE,
  • 00:01:02.418 --> 00:01:03.853

  • I'M SO GLAD THAT YOUHAVE TUNED IN TODAY.
  • 00:01:06.823 --> 00:01:09.859
  • YOU HAVE JOINED USDURING A GREAT SERIES
  • 00:01:09.959 --> 00:01:12.428
  • THAT WE'RE CONTINUINGWITH THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF
  • 00:01:12.529 --> 00:01:15.031
  • EMBRACING OUR PLACE. DO YOUKNOW THAT GOD HAS SET
  • 00:01:15.131 --> 00:01:18.768
  • EVERY MEMBER OFTHE BODY IN PLACE?
  • 00:01:18.868 --> 00:01:21.104
  • THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU,
  • 00:01:21.204 --> 00:01:22.705
  • THERE IS NOBODYTHAT IS AN ACCIDENT
  • 00:01:22.805 --> 00:01:25.008
  • AND KIND OF JUST A THROWAWAYIN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:01:25.108 --> 00:01:27.944
  • GOD HAS A DIVINE PLAN,A DIVINE PURPOSE,
  • 00:01:28.044 --> 00:01:30.146
  • AND A DIVINE DESTINY FOREVERY SINGLE ONE OF US
  • 00:01:30.246 --> 00:01:32.882
  • AND HE HAS GOT A PLACE FOR US.
  • 00:01:32.982 --> 00:01:35.051
  • IN 1 CORINTHIANSCHAPTER 12 TO 27,
  • 00:01:35.151 --> 00:01:38.087
  • WE READ THE WHOLEPORTION OF SCRIPTURE
  • 00:01:38.188 --> 00:01:39.989
  • BUT RIGHT THERE THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:01:40.089 --> 00:01:41.658
  • "BUT IN FACT GOD HAS PLACEDTHE PARTS IN THE BODY,
  • 00:01:41.758 --> 00:01:45.395
  • "EVERY ONE OF THEM JUSTAS HE WANTED THEM TO BE."
  • 00:01:45.495 --> 00:01:48.097
  • THAT TO ME IS VERY,VERY POWERFUL.
  • 00:01:48.198 --> 00:01:49.832
  • THAT ACTUALLY GOD CHOOSES
  • 00:01:49.933 --> 00:01:52.635
  • WHERE THOSE PEOPLEARE PUT INTO PLACE.
  • 00:01:52.735 --> 00:01:54.571
  • WE DON'T GET TO JUST CHOOSE,
  • 00:01:54.671 --> 00:01:55.672
  • IT'S ALWAYS INTERESTINGTO ME WHEN PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:01:55.772 --> 00:01:57.073
  • "I'M GOING TO BE THIS PART."
  • 00:01:57.173 --> 00:01:58.608
  • YOU DON'T GET TO SAYI'M GOING TO BE A MOUTH
  • 00:01:58.708 --> 00:02:00.210
  • OR I'M GOING TO BE THE ELBOW
  • 00:02:00.310 --> 00:02:02.011
  • OR I'M GOING TO BE THE KNEECAP,
  • 00:02:02.111 --> 00:02:03.646
  • GOD IS THE ONE THATSETS US ALL IN PLACE
  • 00:02:03.746 --> 00:02:07.217
  • AND HE ACTUALLY EQUIPS US FORTHE PLACE THAT HE HAS SET US.
  • 00:02:07.317 --> 00:02:10.820
  • AND SO WE NEED TOEMBRACE OUR PLACE
  • 00:02:10.920 --> 00:02:13.056
  • AND WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:02:13.156 --> 00:02:14.424
  • THAT JUST BECAUSE IT'SAN UNSEEN PLACE FOR MANY,
  • 00:02:14.524 --> 00:02:17.994
  • DOESN'T MEAN IT'SUNIMPORTANT TO GOD.
  • 00:02:18.094 --> 00:02:20.363
  • AND BECAUSE OF THE SOCIALMEDIA WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE,
  • 00:02:20.463 --> 00:02:23.032
  • WE THINK IF YOU CAN'T SEEIT THEN IT'S NOT IMPORTANT
  • 00:02:23.132 --> 00:02:26.002
  • AND WE TEND TO JUST APPLAUDAND PUT THE SPOTLIGHT
  • 00:02:26.102 --> 00:02:29.339
  • ON THE THINGS THAT LOOKBEST ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:02:29.439 --> 00:02:31.975
  • BUT WE KNOW IN THEMEDIA, IT'S ALL FILTERED
  • 00:02:32.075 --> 00:02:34.310
  • AND IT'S ALL JUST TAKENAT THE RIGHT TIME,
  • 00:02:34.410 --> 00:02:37.080
  • IN THE RIGHT PLACE, WE MAKESURE WE'VE GOT THE RIGHT LIGHT
  • 00:02:37.180 --> 00:02:39.249
  • AND WE PUT THAT--AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:02:39.349 --> 00:02:40.683
  • GOD IS NOT THAT IMPRESSEDWITH OUR FILTERS,
  • 00:02:40.783 --> 00:02:42.585
  • GOD HAS SET US IN PLACE
  • 00:02:42.685 --> 00:02:44.988
  • AND IT IS IMPORTANT.WHEREVER HE'S SENT YOU,
  • 00:02:45.088 --> 00:02:47.090
  • YOU MIGHT THINK THISASSIGNMENT IS UNIMPORTANT,
  • 00:02:47.190 --> 00:02:49.859
  • YOU KNOW, I'M A YOUNGMOM WITH YOUNG KIDS,
  • 00:02:49.959 --> 00:02:52.195
  • I'M PART OF THIS MUMS GROUPEVERY WEEK, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:02:52.295 --> 00:02:54.664
  • THAT'S IMPORTANT TO GOD,THAT IS IMPORTANT TO GOD,
  • 00:02:54.764 --> 00:02:56.833
  • HOW YOU CONDUCT YOURSELF INTHAT PLACE IS IMPORTANT TO GOD.
  • 00:02:56.933 --> 00:02:59.669
  • MAYBE YOU THINK WELL, YOUKNOW, I'M A BLUE-COLLAR WORKER,
  • 00:02:59.769 --> 00:03:02.305
  • I WORK IN THE FACTORY ALL DAY,
  • 00:03:02.405 --> 00:03:03.940
  • IT REALLY ISN'T A BIGPROMINENT PREACHING POSITION
  • 00:03:04.040 --> 00:03:06.476
  • AND GOD'S LIKE, "OHNO, I'VE GOT YOU THERE
  • 00:03:06.576 --> 00:03:08.344
  • "BECAUSE I'VE GOT ANASSIGNMENT FOR YOU TO DO
  • 00:03:08.444 --> 00:03:10.246
  • "AND I NEED YOU TOEMBRACE YOUR PLACE
  • 00:03:10.346 --> 00:03:12.282
  • "IN THE PLACE THATI'VE PUT YOU."
  • 00:03:12.382 --> 00:03:13.783
  • AND IT DOESN'T MATTERWHAT YOUR VOCATION IS,
  • 00:03:13.883 --> 00:03:16.452
  • IT DOESN'T MATTERWHAT AGE YOU ARE,
  • 00:03:16.552 --> 00:03:18.855
  • GOD HAS SET US ALL IN PLACE
  • 00:03:18.955 --> 00:03:21.491
  • AND WE NEED TO EMBRACE OURPLACE IN EVERY SEASON OF LIFE.
  • 00:03:21.591 --> 00:03:24.527
  • YOU DON'T KIND OF GO, "WELL,I'VE GOTTEN TO 50 OR 60
  • 00:03:24.627 --> 00:03:27.430
  • "AND I'VE DONE MY DAYS."
  • 00:03:27.530 --> 00:03:29.065
  • NO, NO, IF YOU WOKEUP THIS MORNING
  • 00:03:29.165 --> 00:03:31.100
  • AND THERE WAS NOT A WHITECHALK MARK AROUND YOUR BODY
  • 00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:33.169
  • GOD'S NOT FINISHED WITH YOU.
  • 00:03:33.269 --> 00:03:34.671
  • IF YOU DID NOT WAKE UP IN AVERY COLD ROOM IN A SEALED BAG
  • 00:03:34.771 --> 00:03:37.974
  • IT MEANS THAT HEAVEN ISNOT READY FOR YOU YET,
  • 00:03:38.074 --> 00:03:40.510
  • GOD IS SAYING, "NO, YOU'VEGOT A PLACE THERE IN MY BODY
  • 00:03:40.610 --> 00:03:44.080
  • "AND I NEED YOU TOEMBRACE YOUR PLACE."
  • 00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:47.083
  • AND SO WE ALSO HAVE TOUNDERSTAND THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:47.183 --> 00:03:49.886
  • IF YOU THINK WELL I'VEBEEN DISPLACED THROUGH HURT
  • 00:03:49.986 --> 00:03:52.455
  • OR OFFENSE OR ANYTHINGTHAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:52.555 --> 00:03:54.791
  • SOMEONE CAN JUST REPLACE ME.
  • 00:03:54.891 --> 00:03:56.693
  • WELL, THE TRUTH IS; GODWILL FULFILL HIS PURPOSE
  • 00:03:56.793 --> 00:03:59.996
  • BUT YOU CAN'T BE REPLACED,
  • 00:04:00.096 --> 00:04:02.165
  • NO ONE CAN RUN YOUR RACE,
  • 00:04:02.265 --> 00:04:03.933
  • NOBODY CAN GET IN YOUR LANE,
  • 00:04:04.033 --> 00:04:06.069
  • NOBODY CAN FINISHYOUR COURSE, NOBODY.
  • 00:04:06.169 --> 00:04:08.204
  • I COULD...
  • 00:04:08.304 --> 00:04:09.539
  • DISPLACE MYSELF AND GODWILL STILL HAVE HIS PURPOSE
  • 00:04:09.639 --> 00:04:12.508
  • IN THE KINGDOM BUT THERE CANBE NO OTHER CHRISTINE CAINE,
  • 00:04:12.608 --> 00:04:15.545
  • NOBODY ELSE CAN RUN MY RACE,
  • 00:04:15.645 --> 00:04:17.213
  • NOBODY ELSE CANFINISH MY COURSE,
  • 00:04:17.313 --> 00:04:19.148
  • I DON'T NEED TO BE THREATENED,
  • 00:04:19.248 --> 00:04:20.316
  • I DON'T NEED TO BE INSECUREBECAUSE NOBODY CAN DO
  • 00:04:20.416 --> 00:04:22.885
  • WHAT I'VE BEEN PUTON THIS EARTH TO DO,
  • 00:04:22.985 --> 00:04:24.620
  • NOBODY CAN DO WHAT YOU'VEBEEN PUT ON THIS EARTH TO DO
  • 00:04:24.721 --> 00:04:27.323
  • AND UNLESS YOUEMBRACE YOUR PLACE
  • 00:04:27.423 --> 00:04:29.859
  • IT WILL NEVER GET DONE.
  • 00:04:29.959 --> 00:04:31.227
  • THAT UNIQUE THING THATYOU WERE ON EARTH TO DO
  • 00:04:31.327 --> 00:04:34.197
  • WON'T GET DONE IFYOU DON'T DO IT.
  • 00:04:34.297 --> 00:04:35.965
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN GOD'SWILL WON'T GET DONE
  • 00:04:36.065 --> 00:04:38.101
  • BUT YOUR PURPOSE MIGHTNOT BE OUTWORKED.
  • 00:04:38.201 --> 00:04:40.903
  • AND SO WHAT WE WANTTO DO IS MAKE SURE
  • 00:04:41.003 --> 00:04:43.072
  • THAT WE DO THE VERY THINGTHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO DO
  • 00:04:43.172 --> 00:04:46.642
  • BY EMBRACING OUR PLACE.
  • 00:04:46.743 --> 00:04:47.977
  • AND HERE'S THE OTHER THING;GOD HAS CREATED US AS A BODY
  • 00:04:48.077 --> 00:04:51.581
  • SO THAT WE ARE INTERDEPENDENT.
  • 00:04:51.681 --> 00:04:53.483
  • AND THE FACT IS A LOT OFTIMES ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA,
  • 00:04:53.583 --> 00:04:56.786
  • I LOVE AMERICA, THELAND OF THE BRAVE
  • 00:04:56.886 --> 00:04:59.522
  • AND THE HOME OF THE FREE ORYOU KNOW, WHATEVER THAT IS.
  • 00:04:59.622 --> 00:05:01.724
  • AND SO, BUT THE ISSUEIS HERE IT'S LIKE,
  • 00:05:01.824 --> 00:05:04.861
  • I WANT TO BE THE SELF-MADE MAN,
  • 00:05:04.961 --> 00:05:06.028
  • I WANT TO BE THE SELF-MADEWOMAN, INDEPENDENT SPIRIT,
  • 00:05:06.129 --> 00:05:08.831
  • I LIKE TO DO THINGSALL BY MYSELF.
  • 00:05:08.931 --> 00:05:11.334
  • WELL, YOU KNOW, THE ONLY ONE
  • 00:05:11.434 --> 00:05:12.335
  • THAT DOES THINGS ALLBY THEMSELVES IS...
  • 00:05:12.435 --> 00:05:14.470
  • I REMEMBER WHEN MYLITTLE SOFIA WAS 2
  • 00:05:14.570 --> 00:05:16.939
  • AND I WOULD TRY TODRESS HER SHE'D BE,
  • 00:05:17.039 --> 00:05:18.741
  • "MUMMY, I COULD DOTHAT ALL BY MYSELF."
  • 00:05:18.841 --> 00:05:22.211
  • [LAUGHS]
  • 00:05:22.311 --> 00:05:23.613
  • YOU KNOW, AND SOMETIMES ITHINK GOD LOOKS AT SOME OF US
  • 00:05:23.713 --> 00:05:25.348
  • AND WE LOOK LIKE WE'REHAVING A LITTLE TIME TANTRUM
  • 00:05:25.448 --> 00:05:27.016
  • BECAUSE WE'RE GOING, "GODI COULD DO IT ALL BY"
  • 00:05:27.116 --> 00:05:28.885
  • AND HE SAYS, "NO, IACTUALLY PUT YOU IN A BODY
  • 00:05:28.985 --> 00:05:31.154
  • "BECAUSE YOU CAN'T DOIT ALL BY YOURSELF."
  • 00:05:31.254 --> 00:05:33.322
  • AT THE END OF THE DAY INORDER TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY
  • 00:05:33.423 --> 00:05:36.359
  • GOD HAS SOMETHINGFOR EVERY SINGLE ONE
  • 00:05:36.459 --> 00:05:38.294
  • AND TO GOD IT IS ALL-IMPORTANT.
  • 00:05:38.394 --> 00:05:39.996
  • WHAT I'M DOING ISNO MORE IMPORTANT
  • 00:05:40.096 --> 00:05:41.564
  • THAN WHAT YOU ARE CALLED TO DO.
  • 00:05:41.664 --> 00:05:43.065
  • NOW THAT DOESN'TDEVALUE WHAT I'M DOING
  • 00:05:43.166 --> 00:05:44.967
  • AND I BETTER DO IT AS UNTOGOD WITH ALL OF MY MIND
  • 00:05:45.067 --> 00:05:47.403
  • AND I BETTER EMBRACE MY PLACE.
  • 00:05:47.503 --> 00:05:49.138
  • BUT JUST BECAUSE I'MTHE MOUTH DOES NOT MEAN
  • 00:05:49.238 --> 00:05:51.974
  • THAT I DON'T NEED AN ARMOR I DON'T NEED A LEG.
  • 00:05:52.074 --> 00:05:53.876
  • YOU REMEMBER I TOLD YOUTHE STORY OF MY ACL,
  • 00:05:53.976 --> 00:05:56.579
  • THAT'S SMALL LITTLE LIGAMENT,SMALLER THAN THIS FINGER,
  • 00:05:56.679 --> 00:05:59.715
  • I DIDN'T KNOW IT EXISTED.
  • 00:05:59.816 --> 00:06:01.083
  • I MAY NOT KNOW THATSOME OF YOU EXIST,
  • 00:06:01.184 --> 00:06:03.252
  • IT WAS HIDDEN IN BEHIND MYKNEE BUT BOY WHEN IT SNAPPED,
  • 00:06:03.352 --> 00:06:06.989
  • I REALIZED HOW MUCH I NEEDED IT.
  • 00:06:07.089 --> 00:06:08.491
  • AND THE FACT IS ACROSSTHE GLOBAL BODY OF CHRIST,
  • 00:06:08.591 --> 00:06:11.527
  • WHEN WE ARE NOT IN PLACE ORWE SNAP AND GET OUT OF PLACE
  • 00:06:11.627 --> 00:06:15.498
  • THEN WE ALL REALIZEWELL I NEEDED THAT PART,
  • 00:06:15.598 --> 00:06:18.801
  • I NEEDED THAT PART MUCH MORETHAN I EVER THOUGHT THAT I DID.
  • 00:06:18.901 --> 00:06:22.772
  • SO DON'T ONLY...
  • 00:06:22.872 --> 00:06:23.773
  • 'CAUSE IF YOU DEVALUEYOUR OWN PLACE,
  • 00:06:23.873 --> 00:06:25.741
  • YOU'RE GOING TO DEVALUE OTHERPEOPLE'S PLACES AS WELL.
  • 00:06:25.842 --> 00:06:28.211
  • THE FACT IS, I DON'T KNOWHOW GOD GAVE ME A REVELATION
  • 00:06:28.311 --> 00:06:30.613
  • BUT FROM VERY EARLY ONIN MY CHRISTIAN WORK
  • 00:06:30.713 --> 00:06:32.648
  • I KNEW WE NEEDED EACH OTHER,
  • 00:06:32.748 --> 00:06:34.217
  • I KNEW THAT WE NEEDEDALL THE DENOMINATIONS,
  • 00:06:34.317 --> 00:06:36.352
  • I NEED I KNEW WE NEEDEDALL THE DIVERSITY,
  • 00:06:36.452 --> 00:06:38.888
  • ALL THE DIFFERENT EXPRESSION
  • 00:06:38.988 --> 00:06:40.656
  • OF HOW THE BODY OF CHRIST WORKS,
  • 00:06:40.756 --> 00:06:42.291
  • I KNEW THAT I HAD A BIG MOUTH
  • 00:06:42.391 --> 00:06:44.327
  • BUT I KNEW A BIG MOUTHWITHOUT BIG HEARTS
  • 00:06:44.427 --> 00:06:46.996
  • AND BIG ARMS A BIGFEET IS USELESS.
  • 00:06:47.096 --> 00:06:49.765
  • AND I KNEW THAT WE NEEDTHE INTERNAL ORGANS,
  • 00:06:49.866 --> 00:06:52.201
  • THE UNSEEN PARTSAND THE SEEN PARTS
  • 00:06:52.301 --> 00:06:54.036
  • AND I KNEW THATEVERYTHING MATTERED.
  • 00:06:54.136 --> 00:06:56.906
  • AND MY PRAYER IS;

  • 00:11:16.732 --> 00:11:21.403
  • IT SAYS, "THEN SAMUELSAID TO JESSE,
  • 00:11:21.504 --> 00:11:23.839
  • 'ARE ALL YOUR SONS HERE?' ANDHE SAID, 'THERE REMAINS
  • 00:11:23.939 --> 00:11:26.709

  • OR SEVEN OF HIS SONSIN FRONT OF SAMUEL
  • 00:11:50.099 --> 00:11:53.469

  • "IT'S NONE OF THESE GUYS,HAVE YOU GOT ANOTHER ONE?"
  • 00:11:56.472 --> 00:11:59.408

  • MOSES WAS IN THE DESERT ANDGOD TURNS UP IN A BURNING BUSH.
  • 00:13:26.328 --> 00:13:29.798

  • AND I WOULD FIND AND A WHOLELOT MORE WOULD'VE HAPPENED.
  • 00:14:39.268 --> 00:14:41.537
  • DO YOU KNOW EVERYPOSITION IN MY LIFE
  • 00:14:41.637 --> 00:14:43.572
  • HAS COME BY ME SIMPLYBEING IN PLACE?
  • 00:14:43.672 --> 00:14:46.041
  • I WAS SERVING ATTHE YOUTH MINISTRY
  • 00:14:46.141 --> 00:14:47.910
  • AND ONE DAY IN THE YOUTHMINISTRY, I WAS IN COLLEGE,
  • 00:14:48.010 --> 00:14:51.080
  • THEY CALLED ACHURCH CLEANUP DAY.
  • 00:14:51.180 --> 00:14:53.382
  • SO, ALWAYS SAY GOD ALWAYSRUNS OUT OF OPTIONS

  • "TAG YOU'RE IT, I GUESSI'M GOING TO LOOK GOOD."
  • 00:14:59.688 --> 00:15:01.724
  • AND SO AT THE END OF THE DAYIT'S THE WAY THAT IT WORKS,
  • 00:15:01.824 --> 00:15:04.560
  • I TURNED UP AND THATWAS AT THAT DAY,
  • 00:15:04.660 --> 00:15:07.129
  • THE ASSISTANT YOUTHPASTOR WAS THERE
  • 00:15:07.229 --> 00:15:08.697

  • I WAS IN PLACE, GODFOUND ME IN THAT PLACE.
  • 00:15:24.346 --> 00:15:27.850
  • AND THEN I SERVEDFAITHFULLY IN THE YOUTH CENTER

  • AND I WAS JUST SERVINGAT-RISK YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:15:30.552 --> 00:15:33.422
  • THURSDAY NIGHTS WE WOULD GO DOWN

  • AND I DID THAT FAITHFULLYFOR SEVEN YEARS.
  • 00:15:53.809 --> 00:15:56.111
  • NO ONE WAS APPLAUDING ME,
  • 00:15:56.211 --> 00:15:57.446
  • WE DIDN'T EVEN HAVESOCIAL MEDIA THEN,

  • AND I WAS JUST IN MY PLACE,SERVING JESUS SO HAPPY
  • 00:16:05.254 --> 00:16:08.557
  • AND THEN HE CAME AND FOUNDME AND MY SENIOR PASTOR
  • 00:16:08.657 --> 00:16:11.460
  • CAME AND PROMOTEDME TO THIS POSITION
  • 00:16:11.560 --> 00:16:13.662
  • WHERE I WAS THE STATEDIRECTOR OF YOUTH ALIVE
  • 00:16:13.762 --> 00:16:16.398
  • WHICH WAS A BIGYOUTH EVANGELIST.
  • 00:16:16.498 --> 00:16:18.200
  • WE WOULD HAVE ARENAS FULLOF THOUSANDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE

  • AND GIVE AN INVITATION FORPEOPLE TO RECEIVE JESUS.

  • IN COUNTRY TOWNS, INTHE BACK OF NOWHERE.
  • 00:16:30.512 --> 00:16:33.115

  • "WHOA, WHAT ANOVERNIGHT SUCCESS!"
  • 00:16:36.718 --> 00:16:38.520
  • I'M THINKING IT WAS AFLIPPING LONG NIGHT,

  • [CONGREGATION LAUGHING]IT WAS A LONG NIGHT,

  • THERE IS NO OVERNIGHT SUCCESSES.
  • 00:16:43.192 --> 00:16:47.296
  • AND SO ALL OF THATTIME I WAS SERVING
  • 00:16:47.396 --> 00:16:48.897
  • AND I WAS AS PASSIONATE THEN
  • 00:16:48.997 --> 00:16:51.600
  • AS I AM TODAY AND I SERVEDTHERE AND THEN MY PASTOR
  • 00:16:51.700 --> 00:16:55.270
  • ASKED MY HUSBAND AND I TOOVERSEE THE HILLSONG NETWORK.
  • 00:16:55.370 --> 00:16:58.640
  • I NEVER SENT OUTANY BUSINESS CARDS,

  • I NEVER ASKED ANY, I WASJUST IN PLACE THE WHOLE TIME
  • 00:17:01.043 --> 00:17:03.946
  • AND BECAUSE I WAS INPLACE ALL OF THOSE YEARS,
  • 00:17:04.046 --> 00:17:05.848
  • HE ASKED US TO LOOK OVERAFTER THE HILLSONG NETWORK,
  • 00:17:05.948 --> 00:17:08.550
  • AND NETWORK CHURCHES AND PASTORS
  • 00:17:08.650 --> 00:17:10.252
  • AND HELP TO BUILD TEAMSAND BUILD CHURCHES.
  • 00:17:10.352 --> 00:17:13.489
  • AND I DID THAT FORSEVEN YEARS IN PLACE
  • 00:17:13.589 --> 00:17:16.325
  • AND OUT OF THAT CAMETHE OPPORTUNITY TO START
  • 00:17:16.425 --> 00:17:18.861
  • THE A21 CAMPAIGN WHICHIS WHAT PEOPLE NOW KNOW.
  • 00:17:18.961 --> 00:17:22.030

  • INTO THIS JOURNEY BY THEN.
  • 00:17:23.799 --> 00:17:26.368
  • AND THEN BUILDING FOR THE LASTNINE YEARS THE A21 CAMPAIGN
  • 00:17:26.468 --> 00:17:29.972
  • AND THEN LAST YEARWE LAUNCHED PROPEL
  • 00:17:30.072 --> 00:17:32.674
  • FOR WOMEN WHO LEADAROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:17:32.774 --> 00:17:35.410
  • BUT EVERY TIME IT HASCOME BY STAYING IN PLACE
  • 00:17:35.511 --> 00:17:38.814
  • AND GOD HAS COME TO THE PLACEWHERE HE LAST ASSIGNED ME,
  • 00:17:38.914 --> 00:17:42.384
  • TO GIVE ME THE NEW INSTRUCTIONSFOR THE NEXT ASSIGNMENT.
  • 00:17:42.484 --> 00:17:45.621
  • WHAT MOST OF US DO IS GETSO FRUSTRATED IN THAT PLACE,
  • 00:17:45.721 --> 00:17:48.824
  • EITHER WE GET BITTEROR WE JUST GET BORED
  • 00:17:48.924 --> 00:17:50.959
  • OR WE GET OFFENDED OR IT'SNOT HAPPENING QUICK ENOUGH,
  • 00:17:51.059 --> 00:17:53.428
  • SO WE GO OUT AND STARTCHASING SOMETHING
  • 00:17:53.529 --> 00:17:55.564
  • AND GOD COMES TO THELAST PLACE HE SENT US
  • 00:17:55.664 --> 00:17:57.633
  • AND HE GOES, "WHERE ARE YOU?"
  • 00:17:57.733 --> 00:17:58.834
  • AND YOU'RE RUNNING OVERTHERE OUT OF THE WILL OF GOD
  • 00:17:58.934 --> 00:18:01.303
  • TRYING TO FIND THE WILL OF GOD.
  • 00:18:01.403 --> 00:18:02.504
  • AND GOD SAYS, "IF YOU JUSTSTAYED IN THE WILL OF GOD

  • "AND ALLOWED ME TODEVELOP YOUR CHARACTER

  • "YOU'D BE READY TO GO WHEREI WANTED TO SEND YOU."
  • 00:18:10.012 --> 00:18:12.147
  • AND SO MANY PEOPLE HAVEABORTED OF THEIR DESTINY
  • 00:18:12.247 --> 00:18:15.784
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVEGOTTEN OUT OF PLACE.
  • 00:18:15.884 --> 00:18:18.854
  • AND SO I THINK IT'SREALLY IMPORTANT
  • 00:18:18.954 --> 00:18:20.923
  • THAT WE UNDERSTANDTHE POWER OF THAT,
  • 00:18:21.023 --> 00:18:22.624
  • HOW JOYCE MEYER BECAMEA SPIRITUAL MOTHER,
  • 00:18:22.724 --> 00:18:26.228
  • I WAS A YOUTH LEADER THATWAS ASSIGNED TO BE HER DRIVER
  • 00:18:26.328 --> 00:18:29.932
  • AND I REMEMBER ITWAS 20 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:18:30.032 --> 00:18:31.800
  • SHE CAME TO AUSTRALIA,I WAS JUST... NOBODY KNEW ME.
  • 00:18:31.900 --> 00:18:34.436
  • I WAS A YOUTH LEADER ANDTHE PASTOR SAID TO ME,
  • 00:18:34.536 --> 00:18:36.605
  • "CHRISTINE, YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT,

  • AND I WAS LIKE SO EXCITED
  • 00:18:43.312 --> 00:18:44.746
  • BECAUSE SHE'S LIKELARGER THAN LIFE, MY HERO
  • 00:18:44.846 --> 00:18:47.115
  • AND I COULDN'T BELIEVEIT. SO, HE SAID,
  • 00:18:47.216 --> 00:18:49.651
  • "I NEED YOU TO PICK HER UP AT8:00 IN THE MORNING."
  • 00:18:49.751 --> 00:18:50.986
  • SO I WENT THERE AT5:30 IN THE MORNING
  • 00:18:51.086 --> 00:18:54.122
  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO BELATE AND I WAS SO NERVOUS
  • 00:18:54.223 --> 00:18:57.092
  • AND I HAD BORROWED ASUIT OF ONE OF MY FRIENDS
  • 00:18:57.192 --> 00:18:59.695
  • BECAUSE I WANTED TOLOOK REALLY AWESOME.
  • 00:18:59.795 --> 00:19:01.697
  • AND SO, I WOULD NEVERRECOMMEND THIS NOW,
  • 00:19:01.797 --> 00:19:03.498
  • IF YOU GET ASKED TOPICK UP A GUEST SPEAKER.
  • 00:19:03.599 --> 00:19:05.300
  • BUT YOU KNOW, BACK THEN ANDTHEN SHE OPENED HER DOOR
  • 00:19:05.400 --> 00:19:08.937
  • TO GET THE BREAKFASTTHAT CAME FROM THE HOTEL
  • 00:19:09.037 --> 00:19:11.573
  • AND I WAS LIKE SO EMBARRASSED

  • [CONGREGATION LAUGHING]
  • 00:19:17.412 --> 00:19:18.413
  • LIKE A MANNEQUIN INTHERE, YOU KNOW, WHATEVER.
  • 00:19:18.513 --> 00:19:21.250
  • AND SO THEN ABOUT AN HOURLATER SHE OPENS THE DOOR AGAIN
  • 00:19:21.350 --> 00:19:24.453
  • SO THAT SHE COULDPUSH THE TRAY BACK OUT
  • 00:19:24.553 --> 00:19:27.256
  • AND THE NERD ISSTILL STANDING THERE,
  • 00:19:27.356 --> 00:19:29.358
  • YOU KNOW, LIKE I DIDNOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:19:29.458 --> 00:19:32.694
  • AND THEN SHE YELLS AND SHEGOES DOWN THE HALL, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:19:32.794 --> 00:19:35.130
  • "ARE YOU HERE FOR ME?"
  • 00:19:35.230 --> 00:19:37.532
  • OKAY, I HAVE TOTELL YOU THE TRUTH,
  • 00:19:37.633 --> 00:19:38.900
  • EVERYTHING IN ME WANTEDTO LIE IN THAT MOMENT.

  • "WELL, I GUESS YOUBETTER COME IN."
  • 00:20:04.026 --> 00:20:06.028
  • THEN I'M THINKING MYPASTOR IS GOING TO KILL ME,
  • 00:20:06.128 --> 00:20:08.430
  • MY PASTOR IS GOING TO KILL ME,
  • 00:20:08.530 --> 00:20:10.032
  • I'M GOING INTO JOYCE MEYER'SROOM, I'M LIKE DYING,

  • "IN REAL LIFE THAN ON TV."
  • 00:20:17.306 --> 00:20:19.141

  • WAS LIKE, SHE LOOK LIKE SO TINY

  • THERE WAS JUST LIKE BLING
  • 00:20:25.647 --> 00:20:28.483
  • AND SO THEN SHE TAKES ME TOA WARDROBE I'LL NEVER FORGET,
  • 00:20:28.583 --> 00:20:31.320
  • OPENS IT ALL UP AND SHE GOES
  • 00:20:31.420 --> 00:20:33.221
  • AND THERE'S ALL THISBLING AND SHE GOES,
  • 00:20:33.322 --> 00:20:35.023
  • "CHRISTINE, THE MORE ITSPARKLES, THE MORE I LIKE IT."
