  • 00:01:49.656 --> 00:01:52.659
  • Creflo: Depression is aresult of external pressures,
  • 00:01:53.893 --> 00:02:00.200
  • external stuff that's happeningin your life, outside, external
  • 00:02:00.233 --> 00:02:04.170
  • pressures getting inside ofour heart and weighing us down.
  • 00:02:04.204 --> 00:02:09.609
  • So it's an external pressuregetting inside of your heart,
  • 00:02:09.642 --> 00:02:14.847
  • weighing you down, somethin'from the outside, some issue,
  • 00:02:14.881 --> 00:02:18.451
  • some circumstance--"Baby need a pair of shoes.
  • 00:02:18.484 --> 00:02:21.087
  • Got a light bill due.I ain't got no money right now.
  • 00:02:21.120 --> 00:02:23.456
  • I just lost my job--someexternal pressure coming from
  • 00:02:23.489 --> 00:02:28.194
  • the outside, and it'sinternalized, and it wants to
  • 00:02:28.228 --> 00:02:32.098
  • get into your heartand weigh you down.
  • 00:02:32.131 --> 00:02:39.639
  • What does he say in 1 Peterchapter--well, let me go through
  • 00:02:39.672 --> 00:02:41.975
  • these, and then I'll gothrough the Scriptures.
  • 00:02:42.008 --> 00:02:44.377
  • The second perspective,depression is stress and
  • 00:02:44.410 --> 00:02:50.049
  • pressure internalized.
  • 00:02:50.083 --> 00:02:53.886
  • Stress andpressure internalized.
  • 00:02:53.920 --> 00:02:57.023
  • Now, it's still external.
  • 00:02:57.056 --> 00:02:58.958
  • It's still comin' from theoutside, but now it's in your
  • 00:02:58.992 --> 00:03:02.195
  • heart, and it'sweighing your heart down.
  • 00:03:02.228 --> 00:03:05.465
  • You're now internalizing it,and it's weighing you down.
  • 00:03:05.498 --> 00:03:09.636
  • Have you ever had somethin' onthe outside, and you just can't
  • 00:03:09.669 --> 00:03:12.538
  • let it go, and it just--you'retryin' to, you know, distract
  • 00:03:12.572 --> 00:03:15.842
  • yourself from it, but now, onceit gets on the inside,
  • 00:03:15.875 --> 00:03:19.012
  • it's just there?
  • 00:03:19.045 --> 00:03:20.380
  • You're constantlythinkin' about it.
  • 00:03:20.413 --> 00:03:21.748
  • You're constantlyrollin' over it in your mind.
  • 00:03:21.781 --> 00:03:24.817
  • It's weighing you down.
  • 00:03:24.851 --> 00:03:26.552
  • Life feels heavy.
  • 00:03:26.586 --> 00:03:27.954
  • It just feels like, just, youknow,
  • 00:03:27.987 --> 00:03:30.123
  • "I just need toget rid of this."
  • 00:03:30.156 --> 00:03:31.457
  • It's just--you know, and you'rewalkin' with it, and in some
  • 00:03:31.491 --> 00:03:33.559
  • cases, you'rewalkin' with it for days.
  • 00:03:33.593 --> 00:03:37.530
  • Okay, let's look at this lastone, and I think this is the one
  • 00:03:37.563 --> 00:03:40.867
  • that's gonna help us the most.
  • 00:03:40.900 --> 00:03:43.369
  • Depression is the feelings thatcome from thinking thoughts that
  • 00:03:43.403 --> 00:03:47.507
  • weigh you down.
  • 00:03:47.540 --> 00:03:50.476
  • It's feelings that come fromthinking thoughts that
  • 00:03:50.510 --> 00:03:53.913
  • weigh you down.
  • 00:03:53.946 --> 00:03:57.083
  • Now we got it down to a placewhere it's workable: feelings
  • 00:03:57.116 --> 00:04:01.988
  • that come from thinkin' thethoughts that weigh you down.
  • 00:04:02.021 --> 00:04:07.794
  • All right, so now we understandfrom "The Anatomy of Life" that
  • 00:04:07.827 --> 00:04:11.364
  • I've been teaching you that,if depression is a feeling that
  • 00:04:11.397 --> 00:04:16.602
  • comes from thoughts that weighyou down, now we're gon' be able
  • 00:04:16.636 --> 00:04:20.139
  • to diagnose itspiritually a lot better.
  • 00:04:20.173 --> 00:04:22.442
  • Why?
  • 00:04:22.475 --> 00:04:23.910
  • Because whatever you exposeyourself to is gonna produce
  • 00:04:23.943 --> 00:04:26.346
  • the way you think.
  • 00:04:26.379 --> 00:04:29.082
  • Whatever you think about isgonna produce how you feel.
  • 00:04:29.115 --> 00:04:33.553
  • So, however you feel came asa result of what you've been
  • 00:04:33.586 --> 00:04:38.024
  • thinkin' about, came as a result
  • 00:04:38.057 --> 00:04:40.727
  • of what you've been exposingyourself to.
  • 00:04:40.760 --> 00:04:43.596
  • So, ultimately, if I wanna dealwith how I feel, I gotta deal
  • 00:04:43.629 --> 00:04:47.033
  • with what I'm exposing myselfto because whatever I'm exposing
  • 00:04:47.066 --> 00:04:50.703
  • myself to is producin' the way Ithink, and whatever I think is
  • 00:04:50.737 --> 00:04:54.574
  • producin' the way I feel.
  • 00:04:54.607 --> 00:04:56.376
  • Now, somebody says, "Well,why do I need to talk about
  • 00:04:56.409 --> 00:04:58.244
  • depression and deal with that?"
  • 00:04:58.277 --> 00:04:59.645
  • 'Cause you gotta deal with howyou feel 'cause, if you don't
  • 00:04:59.679 --> 00:05:02.315
  • deal with how you feel, you'reexposure produces your thinkin',
  • 00:05:02.348 --> 00:05:05.351
  • your thinkin' produces how youfeel, how you feel now will now
  • 00:05:05.385 --> 00:05:10.223
  • determine your decisions, andyou don't wanna make decisions
  • 00:05:10.256 --> 00:05:14.260
  • from negative feelings.
  • 00:05:14.293 --> 00:05:17.363
  • Your negative decisions is now
  • 00:05:17.397 --> 00:05:19.432
  • gonna produce the actionsthat you take.
  • 00:05:19.465 --> 00:05:21.768
  • Now you're gon' be doin' thingsfrom negative decisions that
  • 00:05:21.801 --> 00:05:25.071
  • came from negative emotions thatcame from negative thinkin' that
  • 00:05:25.104 --> 00:05:28.074
  • came from negative exposure.
  • 00:05:28.107 --> 00:05:29.742
  • You are now acting out onthose negative decisions.
  • 00:05:29.776 --> 00:05:36.082
  • Those decisionsproduce your actions.
  • 00:05:36.115 --> 00:05:37.683
  • Your actionsproduce your habits.
  • 00:05:37.717 --> 00:05:42.622
  • You know, we create habits,and then those habits turn right
  • 00:05:42.655 --> 00:05:45.925
  • around and create us.
  • 00:05:45.958 --> 00:05:49.695
  • We create habits, thenthose habits create--what?
  • 00:05:49.729 --> 00:05:52.465
  • Character.
  • 00:05:52.498 --> 00:05:54.867
  • And the character bringsyou to the destination.
  • 00:05:54.901 --> 00:05:57.570
  • So where you are thismorning is not a mistake.
  • 00:05:57.603 --> 00:06:02.008
  • Where you are this morninghappened all the way back.
  • 00:06:02.041 --> 00:06:04.977
  • It started with "What haveI been exposin' myself to?"
  • 00:06:05.011 --> 00:06:07.914
  • What are youexposing yourself to?
  • 00:06:07.947 --> 00:06:09.949
  • What are youlookin' at every day?
  • 00:06:09.982 --> 00:06:11.317
  • What are youlistenin' to all the time?
  • 00:06:11.350 --> 00:06:12.685
  • What are you talkin' aboutall--what's the exposure
  • 00:06:12.718 --> 00:06:14.554
  • of your life?
  • 00:06:14.587 --> 00:06:15.922
  • If you would invite me into yourlife, and, you know, and I'm
  • 00:06:15.955 --> 00:06:19.559
  • just like a fly on the wall,what would I see that you're
  • 00:06:19.592 --> 00:06:22.795
  • exposing yourself to?
  • 00:06:22.829 --> 00:06:24.363
  • And people don't evenwanna pay attention to that.
  • 00:06:24.397 --> 00:06:31.671
  • What do you expose yourself to?
  • 00:06:31.704 --> 00:06:34.707
  • That's creating my thinkin'.
  • 00:06:34.740 --> 00:06:38.244
  • You gotta value yourself enoughto dismiss some people from your
  • 00:06:38.277 --> 00:06:43.382
  • life because, if itcosts you your peace--what?
  • 00:06:43.416 --> 00:06:51.257
  • It's too expensive, and youcannot, you cannot, you cannot
  • 00:06:51.290 --> 00:06:57.763
  • spend your peace on otherpeople's drama 'cause you scared
  • 00:06:57.797 --> 00:07:04.470
  • that's the onlyfriend you'll ever have.
  • 00:07:04.504 --> 00:07:06.439
  • You're an awesome person.
  • 00:07:06.472 --> 00:07:09.108
  • God's got somebody that'sgonna be awesome in your life.
  • 00:07:09.141 --> 00:07:12.845
  • You don't have to put up withsomebody who don't wanna change,
  • 00:07:12.879 --> 00:07:15.882
  • who just wanna dumpdrama in your life.
  • 00:07:15.915 --> 00:07:18.451
  • When you look on the phone andyou see 'em callin', you have
  • 00:07:18.484 --> 00:07:20.686
  • to--the only reason youanswer, 'cause you bored.
  • 00:07:20.720 --> 00:07:29.395
  • These are practical things youcan do, and you won't do it, and
  • 00:07:29.428 --> 00:07:32.498
  • you keep putting up with thatstuff, and so what's happening?
  • 00:07:32.532 --> 00:07:35.668
  • It's governing your thinking.
  • 00:07:35.701 --> 00:07:38.704
  • What are you watching?It's governing your thinking.
  • 00:07:38.738 --> 00:07:42.608
  • What are you engaged in, inthe booth, in the back, in the
  • 00:07:42.642 --> 00:07:45.211
  • corner, in the dark, when it'sprivate, when nobody's around,
  • 00:07:45.244 --> 00:07:48.915
  • secretly shielding yourselfso you--what're you doing?
  • 00:07:48.948 --> 00:07:54.887
  • Because however you think willdetermine how you feel, and if
  • 00:07:54.921 --> 00:07:57.790
  • you feel depressed, there aresome thoughts, there are some
  • 00:07:57.823 --> 00:08:01.727
  • way of thinkin' that's weighingyou down, and that's what the
  • 00:08:01.761 --> 00:08:04.797
  • devil wants to do through guiltand condemnation, continue to
  • 00:08:04.830 --> 00:08:07.900
  • weigh you down from the pastmistakes and the past errors,
  • 00:08:07.934 --> 00:08:12.004
  • when Jesus has already shedhis blood to deal with that.
  • 00:08:12.038 --> 00:08:14.874
  • You can't let it go becauseyou can't believe you subjected
  • 00:08:14.907 --> 00:08:18.377
  • yourself to that, that youallowed that to happen, that you
  • 00:08:18.411 --> 00:08:20.980
  • did that, that you did this,and this is--some of that stuff
  • 00:08:21.013 --> 00:08:23.549
  • happened 20 years ago, and youstill can't let it go because
  • 00:08:23.583 --> 00:08:27.153
  • that way of thinkin'is weighing you down.
  • 00:08:27.186 --> 00:08:29.989
  • It's been internalized.
  • 00:08:30.022 --> 00:08:31.524
  • It is now a part of your life,and unless you change the way
  • 00:08:31.557 --> 00:08:36.128
  • you think, you are notgonna change the way you feel.
  • 00:08:36.162 --> 00:08:40.333
  • So how do we deal withdepression, the things you've
  • 00:08:40.366 --> 00:08:42.501
  • internalized, those externalthings that have now been
  • 00:08:42.535 --> 00:08:45.104
  • internalized, that feeling andthat way of thinking that is now
  • 00:08:45.137 --> 00:08:48.674
  • a part of your heart?
  • 00:08:48.708 --> 00:08:50.242
  • How do you deal with it?
  • 00:08:50.276 --> 00:08:51.611
  • You have got tochange the way you think.
  • 00:08:51.644 --> 00:08:54.780
  • You know what it's called?
  • 00:08:54.814 --> 00:08:56.148
  • Renewing the mind.
  • 00:08:56.182 --> 00:08:59.251
  • You've got to changethe way you think.
  • 00:08:59.285 --> 00:09:01.787
  • If you're gonna change yourlife,
  • 00:09:01.821 --> 00:09:03.155
  • you gotta changethe way you think.
  • 00:09:03.189 --> 00:09:05.191
  • If you're gonna change yourlife,
  • 00:09:05.224 --> 00:09:06.559
  • you gotta changethe way you think.
  • 00:09:06.592 --> 00:09:07.927
  • Now, I'm not talkin' aboutgoin' to self-help books.
  • 00:09:07.960 --> 00:09:10.129
  • We keep tryin' to replace
  • 00:09:10.162 --> 00:09:11.764
  • God with other thingsor other people.
  • 00:09:11.797 --> 00:09:14.867
  • You know what that's called?Idolatry.
  • 00:09:14.900 --> 00:09:18.671
  • The Bible prophesies aboutan idolatrous generation.
  • 00:09:18.704 --> 00:09:21.941
  • It's a generation where God isno longer first place anymore.
  • 00:09:21.974 --> 00:09:25.344
  • It's a generation wherepeople don't seek God first.
  • 00:09:25.378 --> 00:09:28.447
  • It's a generation where weseek everything else except God.
  • 00:09:28.481 --> 00:09:33.352
  • It's a generation where weput money in God's place.
  • 00:09:33.386 --> 00:09:36.789
  • We put otherpeople in God's place.
  • 00:09:36.822 --> 00:09:39.325
  • We put otherresources in God's place.
  • 00:09:39.358 --> 00:09:41.427
  • We put the therapist and thepsychologist in God's place, and
  • 00:09:41.460 --> 00:09:44.563
  • we continue to try to use otherthings to replace God, and I am
  • 00:09:44.597 --> 00:09:50.569
  • telling you, how long is itgoing to take before you realize
  • 00:09:50.603 --> 00:09:55.007
  • that there are only certainthings that only God can do?
  • 00:09:55.041 --> 00:10:01.881
  • Only certain things that Godcan do, and you keep tryin', you
  • 00:10:01.914 --> 00:10:05.251
  • keep tryin' your best--and whatyou're doing only will--it'll
  • 00:10:05.284 --> 00:10:10.456
  • only give you temporary results.
  • 00:10:10.489 --> 00:10:14.326
  • It'll give you temporaryresults, but God will deal with
  • 00:10:14.360 --> 00:10:17.963
  • the very root of the issue.
  • 00:10:17.997 --> 00:10:20.666
  • God wants you to have peace.God wants you to have joy.
  • 00:10:20.700 --> 00:10:23.602
  • He wants you to have life.
  • 00:10:23.636 --> 00:10:24.970
  • He wants you to have it moreabundantly, but you won't put
  • 00:10:25.004 --> 00:10:28.107
  • him first place.
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:29.442
  • You continue to operate inidolatry:
  • 00:10:29.475 --> 00:10:31.510
  • "I'm not gon' go to no God."
  • 00:10:31.544 --> 00:10:34.447
  • And then you tell people why:"Because I've been hurt, and
  • 00:10:34.480 --> 00:10:37.483
  • church hurt."
  • 00:10:37.516 --> 00:10:40.820
  • It's the very reason why a bunchof idolatry has taken place.
  • 00:10:40.853 --> 00:10:44.824
  • Now, here's what the Bible says.
  • 00:10:44.857 --> 00:10:46.192
  • Let's get someScriptures in here now.
  • 00:10:46.225 --> 00:10:47.560
  • 1 Peter chapter 1, verse 5.
  • 00:10:47.593 --> 00:10:50.496
  • 1 Peter chapter--excuse me--5,verse 7.
  • 00:10:50.529 --> 00:10:53.999
  • 1 Peter chapter 5, in verse 7.
  • 00:10:54.033 --> 00:10:56.702
  • Now, let's see what the Wordsays about all this stuff.
  • 00:10:56.736 --> 00:10:58.771
  • Do you have a prettygood feel of what this is
  • 00:10:58.804 --> 00:11:01.307
  • that we're dealingwith?
  • 00:11:01.340 --> 00:11:02.775
  • These are feelings that weighyou down in the area of your
  • 00:11:02.808 --> 00:11:06.579
  • emotions, tryin' to depress youand move you away from the will
  • 00:11:06.612 --> 00:11:11.550
  • of God for your life.
  • 00:11:11.584 --> 00:11:14.019
  • You know, Bible saysJesus was depressed.
  • 00:11:14.053 --> 00:11:16.222
  • Remember I showed you that?
  • 00:11:16.255 --> 00:11:18.457
  • But he didn't letthe depression win.
  • 00:11:18.491 --> 00:11:24.029
  • Let's read verse 7out loud together.
  • 00:11:24.063 --> 00:11:25.397
  • Ready?Read.
  • 00:11:25.431 --> 00:11:26.766
  • "Casting all your care uponhim--" how many of you
  • 00:11:26.799 --> 00:11:32.438
  • have ever had care?
  • 00:11:32.471 --> 00:11:35.074
  • That should beeverybody in the room.
  • 00:11:35.107 --> 00:11:36.442
  • Everybody--if you didn't raiseyour hands, there's a lyin'
  • 00:11:36.475 --> 00:11:38.611
  • devil on you right now.
  • 00:11:38.644 --> 00:11:40.579
  • Everybody in here has had care.
  • 00:11:40.613 --> 00:11:42.148
  • See, that's whatI'm talkin' about.
  • 00:11:42.181 --> 00:11:43.516
  • "Well, we in church.
  • 00:11:43.549 --> 00:11:44.884
  • I ain't gon' let'em know I had none."
  • 00:11:44.917 --> 00:11:46.385
  • Everybody alreadyknow you had care.
  • 00:11:46.418 --> 00:11:48.587
  • You got care now, and yousittin' up here, worried about
  • 00:11:48.621 --> 00:11:50.489
  • how long I'm gon' preach.
  • 00:11:50.523 --> 00:11:56.228
  • "Casting all your care upon him.
  • 00:11:56.262 --> 00:11:59.165
  • Casting all your care upon him.
  • 00:11:59.198 --> 00:12:02.301
  • Casting all your care upon him."
  • 00:12:02.334 --> 00:12:05.905
  • Now, forget aboutthe second part.
  • 00:12:05.938 --> 00:12:07.273
  • You gotta do the first partfirst, 'Casting all
  • 00:12:07.306 --> 00:12:09.208
  • your care upon him."
  • 00:12:09.241 --> 00:12:11.877
  • When was the last time you tooka care in your life and said,
  • 00:12:11.911 --> 00:12:16.682
  • "God, I cast this care on youbecause I know you care for me"?
  • 00:12:16.715 --> 00:12:24.790
  • "I'm givin' this to you, God,'cause I know you care for me.
  • 00:12:24.824 --> 00:12:28.961
  • I'm not gon' carry this.I'm not gon' think about it.
  • 00:12:28.994 --> 00:12:31.263
  • No, no, no, I'm notthinkin' about that again.
  • 00:12:31.297 --> 00:12:32.965
  • I'm castin' it on the Lord."
  • 00:12:32.998 --> 00:12:34.366
  • And every time the thought of itcome up, say,
  • 00:12:34.400 --> 00:12:35.734
  • "No, that's God's business now."
  • 00:12:35.768 --> 00:12:37.803
  • And it comes up again, "Nope,
  • 00:12:37.837 --> 00:12:39.171
  • I've already castit on the Lord."
  • 00:12:39.205 --> 00:12:40.873
  • And it's gon' keep comin'.
  • 00:12:40.906 --> 00:12:42.308
  • You know, you've got some kindof sickness or disease, and then
  • 00:12:42.341 --> 00:12:45.311
  • the care of it comes in yourthinkin', and you say, "God, I
  • 00:12:45.344 --> 00:12:48.747
  • cast the care of this sicknesson you," and then the devil come
  • 00:12:48.781 --> 00:12:51.016
  • back, "You gon' die."
  • 00:12:51.050 --> 00:12:52.384
  • "Uh-uh, that's God's businessright now, and by the way, I'm
  • 00:12:52.418 --> 00:12:55.421
  • gonna live and not die."
  • 00:12:55.454 --> 00:12:56.956
  • You cast it.You cast it.
  • 00:12:56.989 --> 00:12:59.325
  • Now, somebody said, "Well, howmany times you gotta cast it?"
  • 00:12:59.358 --> 00:13:01.660
  • As many times asyou need to cast it.
  • 00:13:01.694 --> 00:13:05.698
  • Refuse to carry it.
  • 00:13:05.731 --> 00:13:11.370
  • See, these are the answers.That's not my issue.
  • 00:13:11.403 --> 00:13:13.639
  • My issue is, this is sosimple--excuse my English-- "Is
  • 00:13:13.672 --> 00:13:17.576
  • you gon' do it?"
  • 00:13:17.610 --> 00:13:21.447
  • It's so simple.Is you gon' do it?
  • 00:13:21.480 --> 00:13:23.749
  • You're sittin' up here, andyou're saying, "Yes, I agree,
  • 00:13:23.782 --> 00:13:25.718
  • amen," but when the carecomes, will you cast it?
  • 00:13:25.751 --> 00:13:32.024
  • Will you open your mouth andsay,
  • 00:13:32.057 --> 00:13:33.392
  • "No, I'm not carryin' this care.
  • 00:13:33.425 --> 00:13:36.362
  • I know what it'll do to me.
  • 00:13:36.395 --> 00:13:37.830
  • I'm not carrying it.I'm castin' it.
  • 00:13:37.863 --> 00:13:40.566
  • God, I'm castin' this care onyou right now
  • 00:13:40.599 --> 00:13:42.668
  • in the name of Jesus."
  • 00:13:42.701 --> 00:13:45.471
  • Do this.Take your right hands.
  • 00:13:45.504 --> 00:13:47.640
  • Ball it up like a fist, and onthe inside, you just put all
  • 00:13:47.673 --> 00:13:50.542
  • your care, all yourcares in it, all right?
  • 00:13:50.576 --> 00:13:51.877
  • All of it's in there.
  • 00:13:51.911 --> 00:13:53.245
  • All right, now put your handback,
  • 00:13:53.279 --> 00:13:54.580
  • like you're gettin'ready to throw it.
  • 00:13:54.613 --> 00:13:55.948
  • All right, now release it.
  • 00:13:55.981 --> 00:13:57.449
  • Let me duck, all right?
  • 00:13:57.483 --> 00:14:02.087
  • I don't want allthat stuff in my life.
  • 00:14:02.121 --> 00:14:08.427
  • Get rid of it.
  • 00:14:13.599 --> 00:14:15.768
  • If you find that you arecarrying care, get rid of it.
  • 00:14:15.801 --> 00:14:21.640
  • You shouldn't go tobed sad and wake up sad.
  • 00:14:21.674 --> 00:14:24.610
  • Get rid of it.
  • 00:14:24.643 --> 00:14:26.145
  • Now, does that mean I'm gon'
  • 00:14:26.178 --> 00:14:27.880
  • feel perfect emotionallyat that time?
  • 00:14:27.913 --> 00:14:30.516
  • Well, no, not at that timeunless you replace
  • 00:14:30.549 --> 00:14:33.385
  • what you're thinkin' about.
  • 00:14:33.419 --> 00:14:35.120
  • That's why it's soimportant to get in the Word.
  • 00:14:35.154 --> 00:14:36.889
  • Replace what you're thinkin'about with the Word of God.
  • 00:14:36.922 --> 00:14:40.125
  • What does the Word have to sayabout that care you just cast?
  • 00:14:40.159 --> 00:14:44.496
  • "Well, I don't knowwhere it is in the Bible."
  • 00:14:44.530 --> 00:14:46.432
  • Dude, you got a iPhone?
  • 00:14:46.465 --> 00:14:48.000
  • You got a phone?Ask Siri."
  • 00:14:48.033 --> 00:14:52.104
  • Siri will give you Scriptures.
  • 00:14:52.137 --> 00:14:54.239
  • Siri will give you Scriptures.
  • 00:14:54.273 --> 00:14:56.041
  • "Siri, give me all theScriptures in the Bible that
  • 00:14:56.075 --> 00:14:59.545
  • talk about freedom from worry."
  • 00:14:59.578 --> 00:15:04.183
  • Siri say, "Here's what I found."
  • 00:15:04.216 --> 00:15:09.388
  • So what are you gon' tell Godwhen you get-- "Lord, I wanted
  • 00:15:09.421 --> 00:15:12.925
  • to cast my care on you andthink on your Scripture,
  • 00:15:12.958 --> 00:15:15.894
  • but I couldn't find it."
  • 00:15:15.928 --> 00:15:17.963
  • God said, "I gave you Siri,Google,
  • 00:15:17.997 --> 00:15:21.767
  • all them things you talk with.
  • 00:15:21.800 --> 00:15:23.335
  • I gave you all.All you have to do is ask them.
  • 00:15:23.369 --> 00:15:25.904
  • You wouldn't ask me, but at
  • 00:15:25.938 --> 00:15:27.639
  • least you could've askedSiri and them."
  • 00:15:27.673 --> 00:15:32.644
  • We really--whatexcuse do you have?
  • 00:15:32.678 --> 00:15:38.017
  • "Cast all your care on himbecause he cares for you."
  • 00:15:38.050 --> 00:15:41.120
  • Now look at Hebrews 13, in 5.
  • 00:15:41.153 --> 00:15:43.989
  • Hebrews 13, in 5.
  • 00:15:44.023 --> 00:15:45.891
  • Now, we're gonna be on thisfor a couple of weeks because
  • 00:15:45.924 --> 00:15:48.027
  • depression is a big item.
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:51.030
  • Hebrews chapter 13, in 5,
  • 00:15:51.063 --> 00:15:54.099
  • "let your conversations bewithout covetousness."
  • 00:15:54.133 --> 00:15:58.003
  • He's saying here your lifestyle.
  • 00:15:58.037 --> 00:16:00.172
  • Don't let it--let yourlife--have a lifestyle that's
  • 00:16:00.205 --> 00:16:03.709
  • not full of covetousness, greed,or the area of idolatry where
  • 00:16:03.742 --> 00:16:08.914
  • you have said, "Money isfirst place, and not God.
  • 00:16:08.947 --> 00:16:13.218
  • Forget of God.I need the money."
  • 00:16:13.252 --> 00:16:15.320
  • You know, that's what thespirit of Mammon wants to do.
  • 00:16:15.354 --> 00:16:17.790
  • Mammon is a demonic spirit thatwants to convince you to trust
  • 00:16:17.823 --> 00:16:22.461
  • money, and not God.
  • 00:16:22.494 --> 00:16:25.164
  • Mammon says, "Don't trustGod and don't need God.
  • 00:16:25.197 --> 00:16:28.267
  • You have money.Trust it."
  • 00:16:28.300 --> 00:16:31.703
  • And the sad thing about it, youwork so hard, you sacrifice, you
  • 00:16:31.737 --> 00:16:34.907
  • do all this stupid stuff so youcan get to this particular point
  • 00:16:34.940 --> 00:16:37.509
  • in life, and then you get acertain financial position in
  • 00:16:37.543 --> 00:16:40.446
  • life, and you get all the stuffyou ever wanted and dreamed
  • 00:16:40.479 --> 00:16:42.948
  • of--you know, here's the sadpart: And when you get there,
  • 00:16:42.981 --> 00:16:45.717
  • you realize,"Wow, I was deceived.
  • 00:16:45.751 --> 00:16:48.687
  • It ain't here."
  • 00:16:48.720 --> 00:16:52.257
  • You got a lot of money, youcan buy a $10.000 suit, but you
  • 00:16:52.291 --> 00:16:55.427
  • ain't got no friends totell you, "You sharp."
  • 00:16:55.461 --> 00:17:01.333
  • You finally got the car youwant, but don't nobody
  • 00:17:01.366 --> 00:17:03.168
  • wanna ride with you.
  • 00:17:03.202 --> 00:17:07.339
  • You got a beautiful house thatyou haunt because don't nobody
  • 00:17:07.372 --> 00:17:10.209
  • wanna come see you.
  • 00:17:10.242 --> 00:17:12.544
  • And you realize, "Wow, life is
  • 00:17:12.578 --> 00:17:16.748
  • a sum total of whoyou spend it with.
  • 00:17:16.782 --> 00:17:23.122
  • It's relationships."
  • 00:17:23.155 --> 00:17:27.292
  • And you beat everybody up tryin'to rise to the top financially,
  • 00:17:27.326 --> 00:17:32.131
  • only to find that ain't where itis, and on the way, you pushed
  • 00:17:32.164 --> 00:17:36.735
  • everybody out the way becausethat was the single focus.
  • 00:17:36.768 --> 00:17:42.241
  • Yeah, God wants you to prosper.
  • 00:17:42.274 --> 00:17:44.343
  • God wants you to have enoughmoney to do what you wanna do.
  • 00:17:44.376 --> 00:17:48.547
  • But at the expense of replacinghim with your endeavor
  • 00:17:48.580 --> 00:17:52.885
  • to try to get there?
  • 00:17:52.918 --> 00:17:55.187
  • Oh no, it ain't worth it 'cause,at the end of the day, when you
  • 00:17:55.220 --> 00:17:58.490
  • owe, and you knee hurt, andyou can't go in the back and get
  • 00:17:58.524 --> 00:18:03.462
  • your clothes on, I wanna know I
  • 00:18:03.495 --> 00:18:06.198
  • got some people thatI can call to help me.
  • 00:18:06.231 --> 00:18:10.602
  • "Hey there, how're you doin'?
  • 00:18:10.636 --> 00:18:11.970
  • I need you to come and help meget this knee
  • 00:18:12.004 --> 00:18:13.672
  • up here right quick."
  • 00:18:13.705 --> 00:18:20.979
  • Phew.
  • 00:18:23.882 --> 00:18:25.984
  • "Let your conversationsbe without covetousness.
  • 00:18:26.018 --> 00:18:31.623
  • Be content with suchthings as you have."
  • 00:18:31.657 --> 00:18:37.396
  • You know, the Bible says,"Godliness with contentment will
  • 00:18:37.429 --> 00:18:40.465
  • produce great gain."
  • 00:18:40.499 --> 00:18:43.468
  • But what happens, it's so hardfor us to be content because we
  • 00:18:43.502 --> 00:18:46.338
  • keep lookin' at thehorizontal plane of life.
  • 00:18:46.371 --> 00:18:48.774
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:18:48.807 --> 00:18:50.342
  • You can hardly enjoy lifebecause you keep lookin' and
  • 00:18:50.375 --> 00:18:53.845
  • comparing yourselfwith the horizontal.
  • 00:18:53.879 --> 00:18:56.582
  • When you think you're all right,you look down there and say,
  • 00:18:56.615 --> 00:18:58.450
  • "Oh, man, look what they got.
  • 00:18:58.483 --> 00:19:00.152
  • Oh, wow, look what'sgoin' on with them."
  • 00:19:00.185 --> 00:19:02.654
  • Quit tryin' to be a brokeexpression of somebody else, and
  • 00:19:02.688 --> 00:19:09.328
  • learn how to just bewho God called you to be.
  • 00:19:09.361 --> 00:19:15.601
  • A broke imitation ofsomebody else--so what happens?
  • 00:19:15.634 --> 00:19:19.404
  • You're always going to belooking horizontally, and it's
  • 00:19:19.438 --> 00:19:23.141
  • gonna always be "Not enough, notenough, not enough," all your
  • 00:19:23.175 --> 00:19:27.546
  • life, "not enough, notenough, not enough."
  • 00:19:27.579 --> 00:19:31.149
  • You gotta change that.
  • 00:19:31.183 --> 00:19:32.517
  • So instead of me lookin' atthe horizontal, on a horizontal
  • 00:19:32.551 --> 00:19:35.420
  • plane, I'm gonna start lookin'on a vertical plane, and when I
  • 00:19:35.454 --> 00:19:37.289
  • look up, "I see Jesus enough, Isee Jesus enough, I see Jesus
  • 00:19:37.322 --> 00:19:42.461
  • enough," and now I can valuemyself, value my call, value my
  • 00:19:42.494 --> 00:19:45.931
  • life because I'm fulfillin'what he wants me to do, without
  • 00:19:45.964 --> 00:19:51.303
  • comparin' myselfwith everybody else.
  • 00:19:51.336 --> 00:19:53.972
  • You know, you can get depressed'cause you can look on the
  • 00:19:54.006 --> 00:19:56.275
  • horizontal plane and say, "Dog,when is it gon' happen for me?
  • 00:19:56.308 --> 00:20:00.812
  • When mine gon' come?"
  • 00:20:00.846 --> 00:20:02.648
  • And yours already there, but youso busy tryin' to be like what
  • 00:20:02.681 --> 00:20:05.317
  • you see in the horizontal, youwon't pay attention and value
  • 00:20:05.350 --> 00:20:07.486
  • who you are.
  • 00:20:07.519 --> 00:20:08.820
  • Don't you know you gotta be okay
  • 00:20:08.854 --> 00:20:10.188
  • with you before it's gon' beokay in your life?
  • 00:20:10.222 --> 00:20:12.257
  • And as long as it's not okaywith you, you're gon' always be
  • 00:20:12.291 --> 00:20:14.459
  • strugglin' to try tomeet the expectations
  • 00:20:14.493 --> 00:20:19.498
  • and standards ofthe Joneses.
  • 00:20:19.531 --> 00:20:22.467
  • Forget the Joneses.
  • 00:20:22.501 --> 00:20:25.570
  • I told you the otherday, I will never be 6'8".
  • 00:20:25.604 --> 00:20:30.642
  • Man, it would've been nice tobeen 6'8", walk out here and
  • 00:20:30.676 --> 00:20:34.246
  • just tower over y'all.
  • 00:20:34.279 --> 00:20:42.821
  • But you gotta beokay with who you are.
  • 00:20:42.854 --> 00:20:47.225
  • Somehow, you gotta look in the
  • 00:20:47.259 --> 00:20:48.593
  • mirror and be okaywith who you are.
  • 00:20:48.627 --> 00:20:52.264
  • "Yeah, but Pastor, I'mjust a little overweight."
  • 00:20:52.297 --> 00:20:54.599
  • Yeah, but yourhusband love all that.
  • 00:20:54.633 --> 00:21:00.238
  • He love it.
  • 00:21:00.272 --> 00:21:02.474
  • And you're lookin' at somebillboard, some Photoshopped
  • 00:21:02.507 --> 00:21:06.311
  • billboard of somegirl who'd been painted.
  • 00:21:06.345 --> 00:21:12.417
  • She don't looklike that for real.
  • 00:21:12.451 --> 00:21:15.587
  • If you see her in person,say, "Take your makeup off."
  • 00:21:15.620 --> 00:21:19.257
  • And, by the way, if you're aboutto get married,
  • 00:21:19.291 --> 00:21:21.259
  • take your makeup off.
  • 00:21:21.293 --> 00:21:23.028

  • He needs to see what he got.
  • 00:21:42.247 --> 00:21:45.617
  • That does not need to berevealed on honeymoon.
  • 00:21:45.650 --> 00:21:48.987
  • That could be a scary thang.
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:52.958
  • She start takin' stuff off, takeher leg off, start hoppin' at
  • 00:21:52.991 --> 00:21:55.727

  • The church hasbecome that phony.
  • 00:22:06.938 --> 00:22:08.774
  • That's why I'mtalkin' to you about this.
  • 00:22:08.807 --> 00:22:10.308

  • 00:22:13.245 --> 00:22:17.816
  • made, see the beautyof what God has made.
  • 00:22:17.849 --> 00:22:26.758
  • Some of y'all ain'tlaughed this much in so long.
  • 00:22:26.792 --> 00:22:28.360
  • Some of y'all scared to laugh."We in church.
  • 00:22:28.393 --> 00:22:30.595
  • Is it all right to laugh?"
  • 00:22:30.629 --> 00:22:37.936
  • He said, "Be content with suchthings as you have, for he has
  • 00:22:40.539 --> 00:22:43.408
  • said, 'I will never leave thee,nor forsake thee.'"
  • 00:22:43.442 --> 00:22:46.077
  • Now, I wanna showyou this in the Amplified,
  • 00:22:46.111 --> 00:22:47.579
  • real quick: "Let your character
  • 00:22:47.612 --> 00:22:50.582
  • or your moral disposition befree from the love of money."
  • 00:22:50.615 --> 00:22:54.186
  • What is the love of money?
  • 00:22:54.219 --> 00:22:56.154
  • The love of money is when you
  • 00:22:56.188 --> 00:22:57.956
  • trust it more thanyou trust God.
  • 00:22:57.989 --> 00:23:03.128
  • It is when it is first place,
  • 00:23:03.161 --> 00:23:05.397
  • and God is nolonger first place.
  • 00:23:05.430 --> 00:23:08.834
  • He said, "including greed,avarice, lust, craving for
  • 00:23:08.867 --> 00:23:12.804
  • earthly possessions."
  • 00:23:12.838 --> 00:23:14.573
  • Why is he mentionin' this?
  • 00:23:14.606 --> 00:23:15.974
  • This is the very cause of--thethinking and the thoughts that
  • 00:23:16.007 --> 00:23:19.277
  • are internalized because ofthe lack thereof and not havin'
  • 00:23:19.311 --> 00:23:23.815
  • enough and can't pay this andcan't do that, such a life and
  • 00:23:23.849 --> 00:23:27.752
  • character shouldn't beput up with all that.
  • 00:23:27.786 --> 00:23:30.489
  • "And craving for earthlypossessions and be satisfied
  • 00:23:30.522 --> 00:23:33.024
  • with your present circumstancesand with what you have."
  • 00:23:33.058 --> 00:23:36.294
  • Why should I be satisfied with
  • 00:23:36.328 --> 00:23:38.129
  • my present circumstancesand what I have?
  • 00:23:38.163 --> 00:23:40.031
  • He's gonna tell you: "For he,God--" listen to this, guys--
  • 00:23:40.065 --> 00:23:43.969
  • "himself has said, 'I will notin any way fail you nor give you
  • 00:23:44.002 --> 00:23:50.208
  • up nor leave youwithout support.
  • 00:23:50.242 --> 00:23:53.178
