  • reason only, ladies and gentlemen.

  • that's when you're gonna see God's best.
  • 00:00:14.150 --> 00:00:17.160
  • And if you want God to work for you,
  • 00:00:17.170 --> 00:00:19.120
  • you're gonna have to stay at rest 'cause while you're

  • resting he's working.
  • 00:00:21.100 --> 00:00:22.190
  • But if you start working instead of resting then he's gonna rest
  • 00:00:22.200 --> 00:00:25.130
  • and let you work.
  • 00:00:25.140 --> 00:00:27.080

  • This is your world,
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:05.110
  • so let's vow to make it a better place.
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:10.160
  • Let every heart that needs to know
  • 00:01:10.170 --> 00:01:15.170
  • that love is here to stay.
  • 00:01:15.180 --> 00:01:18.060
  • Oh, it's time to live a new life.
  • 00:01:18.070 --> 00:01:21.280
  • Oh, let this love shine bright in you.
  • 00:01:21.290 --> 00:01:26.070
  • Oh, we're saved by his grace,
  • 00:01:26.080 --> 00:01:29.080
  • so we embrace your love today.
  • 00:01:29.090 --> 00:01:32.240
  • We are changed.
  • 00:01:32.250 --> 00:01:35.260
  • 00:01:35.270 --> 00:01:39.110
  • Creflo: If you have your Bibles this morning,
  • 00:01:39.120 --> 00:01:40.290
  • go with me to the book of Matthew chapter 6.
  • 00:01:41.000 --> 00:01:43.240
  • Matthew chapter 6 and verse 25.
  • 00:01:43.250 --> 00:01:46.230
  • Let's look at it in the New Living Translation.
  • 00:01:46.240 --> 00:01:51.000
  • Matthew chapter 6 and verse 25.
  • 00:01:51.010 --> 00:01:59.110
  • And let's talk about how to become free from worry,
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:05.140
  • how to defeat worry.
  • 00:02:05.150 --> 00:02:06.250
  • Everybody in here will always have a temptation
  • 00:02:06.260 --> 00:02:10.040
  • to worry about something.
  • 00:02:10.050 --> 00:02:14.020
  • Sometimes that happens right before you go to bed,
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:17.010
  • and something will come to your attention and try to rob you out
  • 00:02:17.020 --> 00:02:19.110
  • of your rest and rob you out of your sleep.
  • 00:02:19.120 --> 00:02:22.170
  • So, we all will have a potential to worry all the time.
  • 00:02:22.180 --> 00:02:27.210
  • I'm not trying to say to you that that potential is going to
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:30.190
  • no longer be a part of your life,
  • 00:02:30.200 --> 00:02:33.250
  • but how you confront that potential,
  • 00:02:33.260 --> 00:02:35.130
  • how you confront the temptation to worry,
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:41.040
  • and to carry it, and to allow it to become a burden in your life
  • 00:02:41.050 --> 00:02:45.290
  • is entirely different for the Christian who
  • 00:02:46.000 --> 00:02:48.130
  • knows his God, amen?
  • 00:02:48.140 --> 00:02:50.190
  • So, Matthew chapter 6 verse 25 says,
  • 00:02:50.200 --> 00:02:53.040
  • and I'll read out of the NLT if you can put that on the screen,
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:56.120
  • so we can all see it.
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:57.250
  • He said, "That is why I tell you not to worry
  • 00:02:57.260 --> 00:02:59.270
  • about everyday life."
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:02.280
  • Man, isn't that the truth?
  • 00:03:02.290 --> 00:03:05.130
  • "Not to worry about everyday life,
  • 00:03:05.140 --> 00:03:07.140
  • whether you have enough food and drink,
  • 00:03:07.150 --> 00:03:10.080
  • or enough clothes to wear."
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:12.200
  • I mean, we're too blessed to be stressed, seriously.
  • 00:03:12.210 --> 00:03:19.220
  • It's like some of the stuff that we're stressing over,
  • 00:03:19.230 --> 00:03:22.270
  • if you would go to other countries,
  • 00:03:22.280 --> 00:03:25.030
  • they don't have nowhere near that opportunity to have
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:27.110
  • the things you have.
  • 00:03:27.120 --> 00:03:30.110
  • He says, "Whether you have enough food and drink,
  • 00:03:30.120 --> 00:03:33.160
  • or enough clothes to wear.
  • 00:03:33.170 --> 00:03:35.170
  • Isn't life more than food and your body,
  • 00:03:35.180 --> 00:03:38.270
  • and more than clothes?"
  • 00:03:38.280 --> 00:03:40.140
  • Look at what we've reduced life to.
  • 00:03:40.150 --> 00:03:43.200
  • And it's more than that.
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:45.060
  • It's more than food, it's more than clothing,
  • 00:03:45.070 --> 00:03:47.160
  • it's more than drink.
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:51.040
  • We've got to make sure we kind of redefine life.
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:55.220
  • We can get caught up in all of these things that people call
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:59.020
  • life, but I like to define life as,
  • 00:03:59.030 --> 00:04:02.030
  • you know, I believe life is a sum total of
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:05.000
  • who you spend it with.
  • 00:04:05.010 --> 00:04:07.070
  • That's why what happens when somebody dies in your life,
  • 00:04:07.080 --> 00:04:10.090
  • it seems like a piece of you left.
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:11.190
  • That's kind of the truth.
  • 00:04:11.200 --> 00:04:12.290
  • It's a sum total of who you spend it with.
  • 00:04:13.000 --> 00:04:15.180
  • Life is so much more than the stuff and the things,
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:19.180
  • and if you can get them, praise God for them,
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:21.080
  • but you can't allow those outside things to,
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:25.290
  • you know, define life for you.
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.260
  • It's relationship, it's your relationship vertically with
  • 00:04:27.270 --> 00:04:30.220
  • God, and then your relationship horizontally with the people
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:33.280
  • that you spend time with.
  • 00:04:33.290 --> 00:04:35.220
  • My life is a sum total of who I spend time with.
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:40.060
  • And that's so, so very important.
  • 00:04:40.070 --> 00:04:41.280
  • And somebody says, "Well, now, I know where
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:44.030
  • the worrying come from.
  • 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:46.160
  • I'm spending too much time with Frank."
  • 00:04:46.170 --> 00:04:49.220
  • Well, baby, who is Frank? "My husband."
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:52.290
  • No, man, but life is more than those things.
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:05:00.020
  • And look at verse 26.
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:02.010
  • He says, now, he says I wanna show you something.
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:05.220
  • "Look at the birds."
  • 00:05:05.230 --> 00:05:08.040
  • He says I wanna teach you a lesson,
  • 00:05:08.050 --> 00:05:09.210
  • and I wanna use the birds.
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:11.110
  • "Look at the birds.
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:12.270
  • They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns,
  • 00:05:12.280 --> 00:05:16.230
  • for your heavenly Father feeds them."
  • 00:05:16.240 --> 00:05:20.240
  • Wow, they're dependent on the heavenly Father.
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:23.020
  • "And aren't you far more valuable to him
  • 00:05:23.030 --> 00:05:27.100
  • than the birds," amen?
  • 00:05:27.110 --> 00:05:32.280
  • Look at verse 27: "Can all your worries add a
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:37.020
  • single moment to your life?"
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:40.230
  • Twenty-eight: "And why worry about your clothing?
  • 00:05:40.240 --> 00:05:45.120
  • Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow.
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:49.220
  • They don't work or make their clothing."
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:53.260
  • Now, you know, yesterday we were in New York getting ready for
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:58.110
  • service, and it was like--it felt like 113 degrees.
  • 00:05:58.120 --> 00:06:02.260
  • And I wasn't trying to wear nothing I had in the closet.
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:06.270
  • So, I went to Target and got me a short-sleeved shirt.
  • 00:06:06.280 --> 00:06:10.270
  • I'm not worrying about what somebody will think about that
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:14.050
  • short-sleeved shirt, why?
  • 00:06:14.060 --> 00:06:17.040
  • I found me a pair of--what kind of material that was?
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:21.040
  • It was linen, linen breeze.
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:24.160
  • The shirt was a short-sleeved shirt,
  • 00:06:24.170 --> 00:06:26.210
  • I mean, we hooked stuff together,
  • 00:06:26.220 --> 00:06:28.230
  • and I know some people who just,
  • 00:06:28.240 --> 00:06:31.260
  • "Well, I just ain't going to church then."
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:35.070
  • Really, is it that big of a deal?
  • 00:06:35.080 --> 00:06:37.120
  • That's one of the reasons why we're trying to dress
  • 00:06:37.130 --> 00:06:38.290
  • differently, so it will be okay that you come to church any
  • 00:06:39.000 --> 00:06:41.270
  • way you can come to church.
  • 00:06:41.280 --> 00:06:44.050
  • Y'all know there was a time when I would not come to church
  • 00:06:44.060 --> 00:06:45.290
  • without my three-piece suit on, but now there are some times
  • 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:49.140
  • I'll walk right out the house with whatever
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:51.190
  • I got on and preach.
  • 00:06:51.200 --> 00:06:54.230
  • Has that become a big concern?
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:57.190
  • And now, it's no longer clothing,
  • 00:06:57.200 --> 00:06:59.130
  • now you're concerned about your eyelashes,
  • 00:06:59.140 --> 00:07:01.050
  • now you're concerned about your weave,
  • 00:07:01.060 --> 00:07:03.170
  • your unit, now you're concerned about--you got
  • 00:07:03.180 --> 00:07:06.010
  • so much to be concerned about.
  • 00:07:06.020 --> 00:07:07.280
  • Do these shoes go with that one?
  • 00:07:07.290 --> 00:07:09.140
  • How this make me look?
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:10.260
  • Do I need newer Spanx, because these don't seem like they're
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:13.170
  • squeezing me in like it used to?
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:16.120
  • It's just so much.
  • 00:07:16.130 --> 00:07:20.000
  • And how do we allow God to get caught up into all of that?
  • 00:07:20.010 --> 00:07:25.140
  • Now, ladies, don't you get mad, I'm feeling something
  • 00:07:25.150 --> 00:07:27.110
  • coming from the congregation.
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:35.150
  • He says those lilies don't work or make their clothing.
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:38.110
  • Look at the next verse, 29: "Yet Solomon, in all
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:42.090
  • of his glory, was not dressed as beautiful as they are."
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:44.210
  • God took care of them.
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:46.180
  • Look at this, "And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers
  • 00:07:46.190 --> 00:07:53.290
  • that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow,
  • 00:07:54.000 --> 00:07:57.180
  • he will certainly care for you.
  • 00:07:57.190 --> 00:08:03.070
  • Why do you have so little faith?"
  • 00:08:03.080 --> 00:08:06.130
  • Now, this is not talking about the size of your faith,
  • 00:08:06.140 --> 00:08:08.250
  • but why is it that your faith in God doesn't last long?
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:14.260
  • Why is it so small?
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:16.090
  • You know how you have a burst of energy?
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:18.070
  • Why was it a burst of energy instead of,
  • 00:08:18.080 --> 00:08:20.010
  • you know, lasting a while?
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:21.190
  • Why is it that your faith is so short?
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:23.130
  • For the most part, why is it that we can come to church
  • 00:08:23.140 --> 00:08:25.240
  • and have faith, and as soon as we leave and something
  • 00:08:25.250 --> 00:08:28.060
  • happens, it's gone?
  • 00:08:28.070 --> 00:08:29.180
  • Why is it so little?
  • 00:08:29.190 --> 00:08:32.010
  • Thirty-one: "So, don't worry about these things,
  • 00:08:32.020 --> 00:08:36.060
  • saying, 'What will we eat?' or, 'What will we drink?',
  • 00:08:36.070 --> 00:08:39.280
  • or 'What will we wear?'"
  • 00:08:39.290 --> 00:08:43.090
  • Sometimes you just gotta just kind of pull it in, like,
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:46.050
  • "Dude, why am I complaining?
  • 00:08:46.060 --> 00:08:48.210
  • I am too blessed to be complaining
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:50.250
  • and worrying about this.
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:52.100
  • It's gonna be alright."
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:56.030
  • Because you can allow the circumstances around you to just
  • 00:08:56.040 --> 00:08:59.070
  • kind of impact your life and how you're thinking.
  • 00:08:59.080 --> 00:09:02.050
  • You gotta learn how to be happy.
  • 00:09:02.060 --> 00:09:04.130
  • Sometimes you gotta get up and say,
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:05.230
  • "Lord, show me how to live today,
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:08.010
  • show me how."
  • 00:09:08.020 --> 00:09:09.140
  • Some of y'all get up with the same worry that you went to
  • 00:09:09.150 --> 00:09:12.110
  • sleep on, and you wake up, and you continue in it,
  • 00:09:12.120 --> 00:09:14.290
  • and you gotta let it go.
  • 00:09:15.000 --> 00:09:18.000
  • There's too much living to do to be worried about something
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:22.030
  • that's so insignificant to where your life is concerned.
  • 00:09:22.040 --> 00:09:26.120
  • You need Jesus, so you can inhale and exhale, amen?
  • 00:09:26.130 --> 00:09:29.260
  • But some stuff, you just need to be, "You know what?
  • 00:09:29.270 --> 00:09:32.010
  • It'll be alright. It'll be alright."
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:34.140
  • Alright, this is the driest chicken I've ever
  • 00:09:34.150 --> 00:09:35.280
  • seen, but you know what?
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:38.100
  • You know, man, I got $20, I can go and get me some chicken.
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:41.120
  • It's not that big of a deal.
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:45.180
  • You understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:09:45.190 --> 00:09:48.080
  • Watch this, "So, don't worry about these things, saying,
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:51.240
  • 'What we shall eat?'
  • 00:09:51.250 --> 00:09:53.050
  • or, 'What should we drink, or eat, or wear?'"
  • 00:09:53.060 --> 00:09:55.050
  • Thirty-two--I love this, "These things dominate," here it is,
  • 00:09:55.060 --> 00:09:59.090
  • it dominates the thoughts of unbelievers.
  • 00:09:59.100 --> 00:10:04.160
  • "But your heavenly Father already knows all
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:07.110
  • of your needs."
  • 00:10:07.120 --> 00:10:09.290
  • Unbelievers are dominated with these things.
  • 00:10:10.000 --> 00:10:15.230
  • My prayer is that it not become a part of your
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:18.010
  • life as a believer.
  • 00:10:18.020 --> 00:10:21.100
  • He says your Father already knows all your needs, thank you.
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:25.210
  • Thirty-three, so, what do I do first?
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:28.290
  • Let's seek the kingdom of God above all else,
  • 00:10:29.000 --> 00:10:31.280
  • and live righteously,
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:33.130
  • "And he will give you everything you need."
  • 00:10:33.140 --> 00:10:36.260
  • Now, I'll say it like this.
  • 00:10:36.270 --> 00:10:38.220
  • Know that Jesus has already made you righteous,
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:42.000
  • and pursue Jesus, pursue Jesus.
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:46.130
  • Now, it's important that as Christian people that we know
  • 00:10:46.140 --> 00:10:52.180
  • the difference between real belief and when we're just
  • 00:10:52.190 --> 00:10:59.170
  • saying something out of our mouth,
  • 00:10:59.180 --> 00:11:01.240
  • and it hasn't happened yet.
  • 00:11:01.250 --> 00:11:04.050
  • How do you authenticate when you really believe God?
  • 00:11:04.060 --> 00:11:07.230
  • I mean, when you really believe in God.
  • 00:11:07.240 --> 00:11:09.250
  • Let me show you something here.
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:11.170
  • Go to Hebrews chapter 4 and verse 3.
  • 00:11:11.180 --> 00:11:15.170
  • Now, worry is fear-based.
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:21.000
  • Worry is based in fear.
  • 00:11:21.010 --> 00:11:24.220
  • There's something I'm afraid of.
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:28.090
  • I'm anxious about something, not too sure about something.
  • 00:11:28.100 --> 00:11:31.210
  • It's fear-based, what's the motivation behind your worry?
  • 00:11:31.220 --> 00:11:37.000
  • What are you afraid of?
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:39.170
  • What's the motivation behind your worry?
  • 00:11:39.180 --> 00:11:42.270
  • What is it that you're doubting?
  • 00:11:42.280 --> 00:11:46.010
  • What is the motivation behind your worry?
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:50.080
  • Alright, now this is so important.
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:52.120
  • Look at the first line here, Hebrews 4:3,
  • 00:11:52.130 --> 00:11:54.140
  • let's read it out loud together, ready?
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:56.230
  • Read: "For we which have believed," stop right there.
  • 00:11:56.240 --> 00:12:02.280
  • We who believe enter into the rest.
  • 00:12:02.290 --> 00:12:07.010
  • So, you in rest is going to authenticate your belief.
  • 00:12:07.020 --> 00:12:17.010
  • Because if you say you believe, then you ought to be at rest.
  • 00:12:17.020 --> 00:12:22.100
  • Remember how we defined rest.
  • 00:12:22.110 --> 00:12:24.240
  • Rest is not defined as inactivity,
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:28.240
  • rest not from work, but rest in work.
  • 00:12:28.250 --> 00:12:35.140
  • In other words, you do what you do,
  • 00:12:35.150 --> 00:12:39.240
  • but you're not stressing while you're doing it.
  • 00:12:39.250 --> 00:12:42.270
  • Now, y'all know I got to explain that,
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:44.140
  • because, you know, some of us, when I mention the word "rest,"
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:47.100
  • and you ain't got no job, and I'm like,
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:49.120
  • "Why are you at home?"
  • 00:12:49.130 --> 00:12:50.220
  • "Well, Pastor Dollar said we should rest."
  • 00:12:50.230 --> 00:12:52.030
  • No, I don't mean rest from work,
  • 00:12:52.040 --> 00:12:54.230
  • I mean rest in work.
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:56.050
  • In other words, when you do what you're doing,
  • 00:12:56.060 --> 00:12:58.160
  • but you're not worried or stressed out while you're doing
  • 00:12:58.170 --> 00:13:02.070
  • what you do, you are resting in work.
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:05.050
  • It's not resting in inactivity, it's resting with a peace and
  • 00:13:05.060 --> 00:13:08.160
  • a confidence that you know that you know that all is well.
  • 00:13:08.170 --> 00:13:12.270
  • When you are at rest, your rest authenticates your belief.
  • 00:13:12.280 --> 00:13:18.010
  • I believe, therefore, I'm at rest.
  • 00:13:18.020 --> 00:13:19.280
  • You can tell somebody who really believes, they're at rest.
  • 00:13:19.290 --> 00:13:22.230
  • They're at rest.
  • 00:13:22.240 --> 00:13:24.060
  • The doctor told them, "Well, you have some incurable disease,"
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:26.200
  • and you get in the Word, and you find out the finished works
  • 00:13:26.210 --> 00:13:29.150
  • of Jesus, and you believe you're already the healed,
  • 00:13:29.160 --> 00:13:33.130
  • well, praise God, you're at rest.
  • 00:13:33.140 --> 00:13:36.100
  • And you're not working to try to get something that's already
  • 00:13:36.110 --> 00:13:39.020
  • been given to you.
  • 00:13:39.030 --> 00:13:40.130
  • You're working for one reason only,
  • 00:13:40.140 --> 00:13:42.260
  • ladies and gentlemen, you are working to stay at rest.
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:47.130
  • Because when you stay at rest, that's when you're gonna
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:49.220
  • see God's best.
  • 00:13:49.230 --> 00:13:51.160
  • And if you want God to work for you,
  • 00:13:51.170 --> 00:13:52.260
  • you're gonna have to stay at rest,
  • 00:13:52.270 --> 00:13:54.070
  • because while you're resting, he's working.
  • 00:13:54.080 --> 00:13:55.200
  • But if you start working instead of resting,
  • 00:13:55.210 --> 00:13:57.290
  • then he's gonna rest and let you work.
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:14:00.260
  • How many of you know you need God working for you, amen?
  • 00:14:00.270 --> 00:14:05.050
  • You know, this whole deal around work,
  • 00:14:05.060 --> 00:14:07.070
  • let me show you something in John 6 verse 28 and 29 in
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:10.150
  • the New Living Translation.
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:12.140
  • John 6 verse 28 and 29, you know,
  • 00:14:12.150 --> 00:14:15.240
  • we're always somehow thinking, "I need to work in order to get
  • 00:14:15.250 --> 00:14:21.280
  • God to do something.
  • 00:14:21.290 --> 00:14:23.190
  • I need to work in order to get healed.
  • 00:14:23.200 --> 00:14:25.160
  • I need to work in order to be delivered."
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:28.120
  • And I agree with you, but now we need to find
  • 00:14:28.130 --> 00:14:32.100
  • out what the work is.
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:34.190
  • What does it mean when he says work?
  • 00:14:34.200 --> 00:14:38.050
  • Let's read it in the King James and then the New Living
  • 00:14:38.060 --> 00:14:40.220
  • Translation, because we still have this attitude,
  • 00:14:40.230 --> 00:14:43.170
  • "I just can't believe I can receive something
  • 00:14:43.180 --> 00:14:45.140
  • the way you're talking about.
  • 00:14:45.150 --> 00:14:47.230
  • You're talking about just believing God,
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.090
  • I mean, I got to do something," and that's your biggest problem,
  • 00:14:49.100 --> 00:14:53.110
  • and that's where a lot of your worrying comes in,
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:55.020
  • because you're having to trust what you do to make this happen.
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:58.070
  • And then, you gotta ask the question,
  • 00:14:58.080 --> 00:14:59.220
  • "Am I doing enough to make this happen?"
  • 00:14:59.230 --> 00:15:01.290
  • And then you're performing to try to make some stuff happen.
  • 00:15:02.000 --> 00:15:04.160
  • Look what he says here.
  • 00:15:04.170 --> 00:15:06.030
  • "Then said they unto him, 'What shall we do that we
  • 00:15:06.040 --> 00:15:09.050
  • might work the works of God?'"
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:11.130
  • They were seeing a lot of powerful things
  • 00:15:11.140 --> 00:15:13.230
  • happening, and they wanted to know what do we need to do,
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:16.050
  • so we can see God working like this in our lives?
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:18.210
  • And look what he said in verse 29,
  • 00:15:18.220 --> 00:15:21.140
  • he said--John 6:29, here's the work I want you to do.
  • 00:15:21.150 --> 00:15:25.080
  • He said, "Jesus answered and said unto them, 'This is the
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:28.180
  • work of God,'" pay attention to this, ladies and gentlemen.
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:31.010
  • "This is the work of God," what is the work of God?
  • 00:15:31.020 --> 00:15:34.050
  • "That you believe on him who he has sent."
  • 00:15:34.060 --> 00:15:37.220
  • So, when we talk about work from a New Testament perspective,
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:42.190
  • he says this is the work of God.
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:44.180
  • This is the work of God.
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:46.100
  • It's not you working to try to get healed.
  • 00:15:46.110 --> 00:15:49.140
  • It's not you working--watch this.
  • 00:15:49.150 --> 00:15:51.160
  • It's not you working to try to get peace,
  • 00:15:51.170 --> 00:15:55.110
  • it's believing on the one that he sent.
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:59.160
  • Look at this in the New Living Translation now.
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:01.270
  • In verse 28 he says, "They replied,
  • 00:16:01.280 --> 00:16:05.110
  • 'We want to perform God's works, too.
  • 00:16:05.120 --> 00:16:08.290
  • What should we do?'"
  • 00:16:09.000 --> 00:16:11.010
  • Listen to this in verse 29, he said,
  • 00:16:11.020 --> 00:16:13.000
  • "Jesus told them, 'This is the only work God wants
  • 00:16:13.010 --> 00:16:16.010
  • from you, believe in the one he has sent.'"
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:21.000
  • This is the only work that God wants from you,
  • 00:16:21.010 --> 00:16:23.160
  • boy, that's powerful.
  • 00:16:23.170 --> 00:16:24.260
  • This is the only work that God wants for you.
  • 00:16:24.270 --> 00:16:27.110
  • So, while you're going around trying to figure out how all
  • 00:16:27.120 --> 00:16:30.100
  • of this stuff you're doing is gonna translate into rewards
  • 00:16:30.110 --> 00:16:34.150
  • from God, don't forget what he said.
  • 00:16:34.160 --> 00:16:37.060
  • The only work I want you doing is believing in the
  • 00:16:37.070 --> 00:16:40.130
  • one that I sent to you.
  • 00:16:40.140 --> 00:16:43.130
  • Man, that's powerful.
  • 00:16:43.140 --> 00:16:45.020
  • So, I sit back, and I say, "You know what, God?
  • 00:16:45.030 --> 00:16:46.190
  • I believe in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:16:46.200 --> 00:16:48.290
  • I see my healing through Jesus Christ."
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:50.250
  • And, you know, some people think,
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:52.130
  • "Well, that ain't nothing."
  • 00:16:52.140 --> 00:16:54.030
  • See, to authenticate that belief is gonna be now also showing you
  • 00:16:54.040 --> 00:17:01.050
  • the work to stay in rest.
  • 00:17:01.060 --> 00:17:03.180
  • If I say I believe and he said this is the work I want you
  • 00:17:03.190 --> 00:17:07.250
  • to do, I want you to believe.
  • 00:17:07.260 --> 00:17:09.080
  • This is the work I want you to do,
  • 00:17:09.090 --> 00:17:11.070
  • I want you to believe.
  • 00:17:11.080 --> 00:17:13.020
  • This is the work I want you to do,
  • 00:17:13.030 --> 00:17:14.190
  • I want you to believe.
  • 00:17:14.200 --> 00:17:16.280
  • Well, it's not belief if you hadn't found
  • 00:17:16.290 --> 00:17:20.080
  • yourself in a place of rest.
  • 00:17:20.090 --> 00:17:23.000
  • That is the authentication of your belief:
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:25.180
  • rest, and he says in Hebrews 4, "Labor to enter into the rest."
  • 00:17:25.190 --> 00:17:33.180
  • Pull that Scripture up, guys.
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:34.280
  • Labor not to get rich, labor not to get healed,
  • 00:17:34.290 --> 00:17:41.290
  • labor to enter into the rest, because if you are in the rest,
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:48.130
  • then what's finished is gonna show up in your life.
  • 00:17:48.140 --> 00:17:51.230
  • Are you understanding what I'm saying?
  • 00:17:51.240 --> 00:17:54.090
  • If you're in the rest, then what is finished is
  • 00:17:54.100 --> 00:17:57.030
  • gonna show up in your life.
  • 00:17:57.040 --> 00:17:59.260
  • Look at this, Hebrews 4:3, let's read down a little bit and then
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:02.280
  • I'll get going here today.
  • 00:18:02.290 --> 00:18:05.060
  • Labor to enter into the rest.
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:07.060
  • Don't labor to try to get something from God that he's
  • 00:18:07.070 --> 00:18:09.230
  • already given you, labor to rest and showing
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:13.130
  • the authentic belief that you have.
  • 00:18:13.140 --> 00:18:16.260
  • You know, the number-one fear that Satan wants to put on
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:19.160
  • Christian people who are believing like this,
  • 00:18:19.170 --> 00:18:21.160
  • he wants you to be afraid that what he promised you
  • 00:18:21.170 --> 00:18:24.250
  • won't come to pass.
  • 00:18:24.260 --> 00:18:26.220
  • So, when you read the Scripture, and you see it's the finished
  • 00:18:26.230 --> 00:18:30.200
  • works of Jesus, then the enemy's coming to your mind and say,
  • 00:18:30.210 --> 00:18:33.090
  • "What if that's not true?
  • 00:18:33.100 --> 00:18:34.210
  • What if that doesn't come to pass?"
  • 00:18:34.220 --> 00:18:36.010
  • That's the number-one fear of the devil.
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:37.190
  • The number-one fear of the devil towards Christian people is to
  • 00:18:37.200 --> 00:18:40.160
  • be afraid that what God promised won't happen.
  • 00:18:40.170 --> 00:18:44.030
  • So, worry is fear-based.
  • 00:18:44.040 --> 00:18:47.110
  • Worry is fear-based.
  • 00:18:47.120 --> 00:18:49.110
  • It comes as a result of you saying,
  • 00:18:49.120 --> 00:18:51.010
  • "Well, you know, I wanna believe,
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:53.240
  • but I really don't believe," and you can tell it,
  • 00:18:53.250 --> 00:18:56.070
  • because you're not at rest.
  • 00:18:56.080 --> 00:18:57.230
  • You can tell it, because you hadn't entered into that rest.
  • 00:18:57.240 --> 00:18:59.150
  • You can tell it, because you're worried,
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:01.180
  • you're still stressed out, you're still trying to work to
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:03.170
  • try to make this thing happen, and we've not learned how
  • 00:19:03.180 --> 00:19:06.110
  • to enter into that rest.
  • 00:19:06.120 --> 00:19:09.070
  • There still remaineth a rest, and we're not
  • 00:19:09.080 --> 00:19:11.030
  • entering into that rest.
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:13.230
  • And when you hadn't entered into the rest,
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:15.250
  • you're demonstrating.
  • 00:19:15.260 --> 00:19:17.050
  • That is the proof, that's proof that you don't believe.
  • 00:19:17.060 --> 00:19:20.260
  • Look at this, verse 4, Hebrews 4 and 4, let's read on down.
  • 00:19:20.270 --> 00:19:25.040
  • He says, "For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day
  • 00:19:25.050 --> 00:19:28.080
  • on this wise, and God did rest the seventh day
  • 00:19:28.090 --> 00:19:31.200
  • from all his works."
  • 00:19:31.210 --> 00:19:33.000
  • Now, this is an illustration of the sabbath.
  • 00:19:33.010 --> 00:19:36.000
  • Jesus is now the sabbath in the New Testament,
  • 00:19:36.010 --> 00:19:38.010
  • and we rest in Jesus, amen?
  • 00:19:38.020 --> 00:19:40.140
  • But he's trying to show you that on the seventh day,
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:42.130
  • God ceased from his works, he ceased from his labor.
  • 00:19:42.140 --> 00:19:47.040
  • Now, watch this, verse 5, he says,
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:49.270
  • "And in this place again, if they shall enter into my rest,"
  • 00:19:49.280 --> 00:19:53.250
  • verse 6, "Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter
  • 00:19:53.260 --> 00:19:57.240
  • therein, and they to whom it was first preached enter not in."
  • 00:19:57.250 --> 00:20:01.280
  • Now, notice how you don't enter into the rest.
  • 00:20:01.290 --> 00:20:04.170
  • They enter not in because of what?
  • 00:20:04.180 --> 00:20:06.230
  • Unbelief, they didn't enter in because of unbelief, unbelief.
  • 00:20:06.240 --> 00:20:12.250
  • That's fear-based.
  • 00:20:12.260 --> 00:20:14.180
  • You're not resting because you don't believe,
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:16.130
  • that's what he's saying.
  • 00:20:16.140 --> 00:20:17.230
  • You've not entered into the confidence and the peace of
  • 00:20:17.240 --> 00:20:20.180
  • knowing that it's already done and it's already finished
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:23.100
  • because you just don't believe it.
  • 00:20:23.110 --> 00:20:25.030
  • And when you just don't believe it, you're in fear.
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:27.150
  • That's the fear that Satan wants to put on every believer.
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:31.020
  • And when you tolerate fear, you contaminate your faith.
  • 00:20:31.030 --> 00:20:35.000
  • And you cannot contaminate your faith walking around in fear.
  • 00:20:35.010 --> 00:20:38.250
  • Do you know fear at the moment you're fearing is not even real?
  • 00:20:38.260 --> 00:20:42.190
  • You are afraid of something that's not even real.
  • 00:20:42.200 --> 00:20:45.160
  • It's something that showed up in your head,
  • 00:20:45.170 --> 00:20:47.070
  • it ain't even real.
  • 00:20:47.080 --> 00:20:48.170
  • And then you go panicking, you know what panic is?
  • 00:20:48.180 --> 00:20:50.060
  • It's groundless fear, there's no ground to be afraid.
  • 00:20:50.070 --> 00:20:52.230
  • You're afraid of something that has not even manifested.
  • 00:20:52.240 --> 00:20:55.250
  • You're afraid of something that has not even been done yet.
  • 00:20:55.260 --> 00:21:00.070
  • Because the enemy doesn't want you to believe
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:02.200
  • what's already done.
  • 00:21:02.210 --> 00:21:04.160
  • He don't want you to believe what's already
  • 00:21:04.170 --> 00:21:06.180
  • been manifested, praise God.
  • 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:08.200
  • He wants you to get an unbelief and walk in the fear of
  • 00:21:08.210 --> 00:21:11.040
  • something that ain't even real.
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:13.010
  • Think about it for a moment.
  • 00:21:13.020 --> 00:21:14.110
  • You're afraid that you might lose your job.
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:16.250
  • You got a job right now, losing your job ain't
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:19.120
  • even real right now.
  • 00:21:19.130 --> 00:21:21.170
  • It's just a thought that has come that said to you you're
  • 00:21:21.180 --> 00:21:24.290
  • gonna lose your job.
  • 00:21:25.000 --> 00:21:26.170
  • Yeah, but God said, no, no, don't believe what God said,
  • 00:21:26.180 --> 00:21:28.250
  • look at how they were acting.
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:30.060
  • Nobody didn't speak to you today,
  • 00:21:30.070 --> 00:21:31.160
  • and you are now yielding power to bring to pass something that
  • 00:21:31.170 --> 00:21:38.010
  • ain't even real, but fear is the fate of the devil,
  • 00:21:38.020 --> 00:21:43.130
  • and if you tolerate fear, you'll contaminate faith,
  • 00:21:43.140 --> 00:21:46.240
  • and yield power and resources to bring to pass something that
  • 00:21:46.250 --> 00:21:50.280
  • didn't even exist until you started fearing it.
  • 00:21:50.290 --> 00:21:57.010
  • And that's what worry is.
  • 00:21:57.020 --> 00:21:59.020
  • Worry is negative meditation on the wrong thing.
  • 00:21:59.030 --> 00:22:08.150
  • Negative meditation on the wrong thing.
  • 00:22:08.160 --> 00:22:11.190
  • Spending so much time and so much resource
  • 00:22:11.200 --> 00:22:14.110
  • meditating on the wrong thing.
  • 00:22:14.120 --> 00:22:17.270
  • "Oh, but what if something happened to my kids?"
  • 00:22:17.280 --> 00:22:21.090
  • "Oh, but what if I lose that?"
  • 00:22:21.100 --> 00:22:23.060
  • or, "Oh, but what if I don't get that?"
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:25.000
  • or, "Oh, what if Frank doing something to me?"
  • 00:22:25.010 --> 00:22:28.210
  • or, "Oh, where is Suzie and who kissin' on Suzie cheek?"
  • 00:22:28.220 --> 00:22:34.160
  • And, "Oh, Lord, have mercy, look at what they said about gold,
  • 00:22:34.170 --> 00:22:40.270
  • it's going down and I done bought all this gold,
  • 00:22:40.280 --> 00:22:43.030
  • what I'm gonna do with it, and--"
  • 00:22:43.040 --> 00:22:46.030
  • You're in fear.
  • 00:22:46.040 --> 00:22:47.230
  • If you're in fear, your faith is being contaminated.
  • 00:22:47.240 --> 00:22:52.230
  • You're afraid.
  • 00:22:52.240 --> 00:22:54.200
  • You start looking at society and,
  • 00:22:54.210 --> 00:22:56.110
  • "What if they don't accept me?
  • 00:22:56.120 --> 00:22:57.240
  • And what if they don't like me?"
  • 00:22:57.250 --> 00:22:59.040
  • You're afraid.
  • 00:22:59.050 --> 00:23:01.000
  • You're walking in the fear and the bondage of people.
  • 00:23:01.010 --> 00:23:05.000
  • The worst bondage in the world is people bondage.
  • 00:23:05.010 --> 00:23:06.150
  • And you're so in people bondage, you can't--you don't even know
  • 00:23:06.160 --> 00:23:08.180
  • how to be free.
  • 00:23:08.190 --> 00:23:10.120
  • You don't even know how to be free.
  • 00:23:10.130 --> 00:23:11.220
  • You up here trying to imitate some model on a picture that
  • 00:23:11.230 --> 00:23:16.010
  • they photoshopped and you don't even know there are men in the
  • 00:23:16.020 --> 00:23:20.260
  • world who like their women how I say that,
  • 00:23:20.270 --> 00:23:25.150
  • how I say, thick?
  • 00:23:25.160 --> 00:23:28.050
  • Like their women thick.
  • 00:23:28.060 --> 00:23:31.050
  • They don't wanna hug--some men don't like slapping themselves
  • 00:23:34.080 --> 00:23:37.050
  • all the time when they hug their woman.
  • 00:23:37.060 --> 00:23:41.260
  • And you walking around in insecurity and in worry like you
  • 00:23:41.270 --> 00:23:44.210
  • can't be accepted because you think the whole world
  • 00:23:44.220 --> 00:23:47.110
  • accepts the photoshop.
  • 00:23:47.120 --> 00:23:52.030
  • And so you carry that kind of attitude and your low
  • 00:23:52.040 --> 00:23:54.210
  • self-esteem is drawing the wrong kind of person because you won't
  • 00:23:54.220 --> 00:23:58.020
  • raise your self-esteem up and be satisfied and confident
  • 00:23:58.030 --> 00:24:01.120
  • in who you are.
  • 00:24:01.130 --> 00:24:05.010
  • And as soon as you can start--see,
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:07.210
  • I've learned something about outfits.
  • 00:24:07.220 --> 00:24:09.220
  • If you can't wear it in confidence,
  • 00:24:09.230 --> 00:24:11.230
  • you don't need to wear it.
  • 00:24:11.240 --> 00:24:13.030
  • I learned that from Taffi.
  • 00:24:13.040 --> 00:24:14.140
  • If you can't wear it in confidence, don't put it on.
  • 00:24:14.150 --> 00:24:16.200
  • Don't put it on.
  • 00:24:16.210 --> 00:24:18.040
  • See, I'm wearing this pink in confidence.
  • 00:24:18.050 --> 00:24:20.050
  • I already know I'm a man, you understand?
  • 00:24:20.060 --> 00:24:22.030
  • So I'm wearing this pink in confidence,
  • 00:24:22.040 --> 00:24:24.130
  • you understand.
  • 00:24:24.140 --> 00:24:25.240
  • But a long time ago, I couldn't wear it in confidence.
  • 00:24:25.250 --> 00:24:29.150
  • You understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:24:29.160 --> 00:24:30.250
  • Wearing in confidence right now.
  • 00:24:30.260 --> 00:24:32.050
  • If you don't believe in it, don't wear.
  • 00:24:32.060 --> 00:24:37.210
  • And sometimes, fear will stop you from operating in the
  • 00:24:37.220 --> 00:24:44.070
  • confidence and the belief of what Jesus has already done and
  • 00:24:44.080 --> 00:24:47.100
  • I'm telling you it's time for you to start wearing Christ,
  • 00:24:47.110 --> 00:24:50.140
  • hallelujah, and being confident that no matter what the doctor
  • 00:24:50.150 --> 00:24:53.250
  • saw or what the x-ray saw, I can wear this in confidence.
  • 00:24:53.260 --> 00:24:57.080
  • I am healed, I am delivered, hallelujah.
  • 00:24:57.090 --> 00:25:00.150
  • I'm set free because of who Jesus is in my life.
  • 00:25:00.160 --> 00:25:09.010
  • Amen.
  • 00:25:09.020 --> 00:25:11.090
  • "Seeing therefore," verse 6, "it remaineth that some must enter
  • 00:25:11.100 --> 00:25:17.070
  • therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in,"
  • 00:25:17.080 --> 00:25:22.020
  • they didn't enter into the rest."
  • 00:25:22.030 --> 00:25:23.120
  • Why? "Because of unbelief."
  • 00:25:23.130 --> 00:25:25.050
  • That's fear-based 'cause of unbelief.
  • 00:25:25.060 --> 00:25:26.210
  • What are you afraid of that's keeping you in unbelief?
  • 00:25:26.220 --> 00:25:33.150
  • I just don't believe that.
  • 00:25:33.160 --> 00:25:35.060
  • I just don't believe that.
  • 00:25:35.190 --> 00:25:38.050
  • Honey, if you're hanging around someone that's always making you
