  • of him being thereready to comfort you.
  • 00:02:04.571 --> 00:02:07.774
  • Look at verse 2.
  • 00:02:07.807 --> 00:02:09.242
  • He says, "When thou passestthrough the waters, I will be
  • 00:02:09.275 --> 00:02:12.045

  • Okay, you'll get a broken heart.
  • 00:02:31.931 --> 00:02:33.499
  • He says, "But I'm not gonnaallow you to be destroyed.

  • I'm not gonna allowyou to be burned.

  • "'Cause I'm with youand all will be well."
  • 00:02:41.608 --> 00:02:46.079
  • You see, God never failed one ofhis people when they cried out
  • 00:02:46.112 --> 00:02:49.882
  • to him, and he will notfail the brokenhearted.
  • 00:02:49.916 --> 00:02:53.620
  • He will not fail the Christianwhose heart has been broken,

  • who cries out to him today.
  • 00:02:56.823 --> 00:02:58.524

  • 00:02:58.558 --> 00:03:02.428
  • you know, we would like.
  • 00:03:02.462 --> 00:03:04.597
  • You know, some people, youknow, God healed the broken
  • 00:03:04.631 --> 00:03:07.000
  • relationship but I'm gonna showyou next week that, you know,
  • 00:03:07.033 --> 00:03:10.603
  • God doesn't heal everybroken relationship.
  • 00:03:10.637 --> 00:03:13.039
  • And that's gonnashock some of you, ha.
  • 00:03:13.072 --> 00:03:15.708
  • But he answers according tohis perfect will and timing and
  • 00:03:15.742 --> 00:03:19.712
  • while we are waiting for theanswer, guess what happens?
  • 00:03:19.746 --> 00:03:22.749
  • While we are waiting for theanswer, 2 Corinthians chapter 12
  • 00:03:22.782 --> 00:03:25.685
  • and 9, declares that hisgrace is sufficient for you.
  • 00:03:25.718 --> 00:03:31.524
  • So, yeah, you might be goingthrough some pain right now
  • 00:03:31.557 --> 00:03:33.660
  • but God's grace issufficient for you.
  • 00:03:33.693 --> 00:03:35.895
  • It's just enough to makesure you can get through.
  • 00:03:35.928 --> 00:03:39.699
  • Yeah, you might have lostyour job but his grace
  • 00:03:39.732 --> 00:03:41.668
  • is sufficient for you.
  • 00:03:41.701 --> 00:03:43.202
  • Provisions will be there.
  • 00:03:43.236 --> 00:03:45.672
  • See, just 'cause you're goingthrough a hard time,
  • 00:03:45.705 --> 00:03:47.940
  • it doesn't mean that you'renot gonna make it.
  • 00:03:47.974 --> 00:03:49.475
  • His grace is sufficient for you.
  • 00:03:49.509 --> 00:03:54.747
  • So those who belong to Christand are enduring heartbreak must
  • 00:03:54.781 --> 00:03:59.152
  • know that God loves them andthat his love is unconditional.
  • 00:03:59.185 --> 00:04:04.757
  • I said his loveis unconditional.
  • 00:04:04.791 --> 00:04:07.527
  • I mean, imagine the grief.
  • 00:04:07.560 --> 00:04:10.129
  • You talk about grief, thatGod the Father endured
  • 00:04:10.163 --> 00:04:12.832
  • as he witnessed the crucifixionof his Son on the cross.
  • 00:04:12.865 --> 00:04:15.635
  • Think of that.
  • 00:04:15.668 --> 00:04:16.969
  • That's just like you lookingat your little child
  • 00:04:17.003 --> 00:04:20.039
  • being executed.
  • 00:04:20.073 --> 00:04:22.675
  • What an amazing love that hewould give us his Son and that
  • 00:04:22.709 --> 00:04:28.181
  • same God is there to comfort thebrokenhearted and to restore
  • 00:04:28.214 --> 00:04:36.089
  • the joy of salvation.
  • 00:04:36.122 --> 00:04:39.325
  • So, here's what we do know.
  • 00:04:39.359 --> 00:04:41.828
  • We do know God is there to healthat bruising, crushing heart.
  • 00:04:41.861 --> 00:04:48.101
  • But where does it come from?
  • 00:04:48.134 --> 00:04:50.503
  • Most of the time, like I said,that hurt, that pain,
  • 00:04:50.536 --> 00:04:54.040
  • comes from broken relationships.
  • 00:04:54.073 --> 00:04:57.076
  • So let's talk about just fora few minutes, you know,
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:05:00.179
  • the healing process, the healingof the hurt of that broken
  • 00:05:00.213 --> 00:05:02.949
  • relationship, the healingof the hurt from
  • 00:05:02.982 --> 00:05:05.618
  • that broken relationship.
  • 00:05:05.651 --> 00:05:07.019
  • How can I heal from the hurt ofa broken relationship because,
  • 00:05:07.053 --> 00:05:11.824
  • whoa, some people, it's beenfour years, no healing yet.
  • 00:05:11.858 --> 00:05:17.964
  • And I'm telling you, yourlife is destroyed when you don't
  • 00:05:17.997 --> 00:05:21.501
  • receive complete healing thatGod offers, that you continue
  • 00:05:21.534 --> 00:05:27.673
  • to try to get it the waysthat the world talks about.
  • 00:05:27.707 --> 00:05:31.344
  • You know, the world is fullof people with broken hearts,
  • 00:05:31.377 --> 00:05:34.580
  • broken spirits,broken relationships.
  • 00:05:34.614 --> 00:05:37.850
  • The pain of a brokenrelationships, you know,
  • 00:05:37.884 --> 00:05:40.720
  • includes a very real sense,listen to this, of personal loss
  • 00:05:40.753 --> 00:05:45.358
  • not unlike bereavement.
  • 00:05:45.391 --> 00:05:48.027
  • The pain of a brokenrelationship could be similar to
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:50.930
  • the pain of, you know,losing a loved one that died.
  • 00:05:50.963 --> 00:05:56.402
  • Sometimes, the hurt is sogreat, it prevents people from
  • 00:05:56.436 --> 00:05:58.971
  • functioning properly and inextreme cases can result in
  • 00:05:59.005 --> 00:06:02.875
  • mental breakdown or even adesire to commit suicide.
  • 00:06:02.909 --> 00:06:07.747
  • And that's whatwe're seeing right now.
  • 00:06:07.780 --> 00:06:09.482
  • It's tough out there, man.
  • 00:06:09.515 --> 00:06:12.985
  • And yet our God is able.
  • 00:06:13.019 --> 00:06:15.388
  • He's able to do somemighty things in our life.
  • 00:06:15.421 --> 00:06:18.391
  • You know, Jesus understandsthe pain of rejection.
  • 00:06:18.424 --> 00:06:21.761
  • I used to think about that.
  • 00:06:21.794 --> 00:06:23.463
  • Lord, do you really understandwhat I'm going through?
  • 00:06:23.496 --> 00:06:26.432
  • Jesus understandsthe pain of rejection.
  • 00:06:26.466 --> 00:06:28.734
  • Someone says, "Well,how would you know that?"
  • 00:06:28.768 --> 00:06:31.304
  • Because of the Word.
  • 00:06:31.337 --> 00:06:32.638
  • Look at John, look at Saint Johnchapter 1 and verse 11, Saint
  • 00:06:32.672 --> 00:06:35.875
  • John chapter 1 and verse 11.
  • 00:06:35.908 --> 00:06:38.578
  • Jesus, he knows about this.
  • 00:06:38.611 --> 00:06:40.713
  • I was a little--it blessed me.
  • 00:06:40.746 --> 00:06:44.817
  • Understand what I'm saying.
  • 00:06:44.851 --> 00:06:46.152
  • I wasn't rejoicing because ofthe rejection of Jesus but just
  • 00:06:46.185 --> 00:06:48.921
  • to know that he knows, it'spretty cool to know that he
  • 00:06:48.955 --> 00:06:52.358
  • knows what I'm going throughand so look what he said
  • 00:06:52.391 --> 00:06:56.329
  • in John 1 and 11.
  • 00:06:56.362 --> 00:06:58.564
  • He says, "He came not--hecame unto his own,
  • 00:06:58.598 --> 00:07:02.168
  • and his own received him not."
  • 00:07:02.201 --> 00:07:04.203
  • He came to his own; his ownpeople did not receive him.
  • 00:07:04.237 --> 00:07:08.574
  • Think of that.
  • 00:07:08.608 --> 00:07:10.176
  • Think of beingrejected by your own people.
  • 00:07:10.209 --> 00:07:13.846
  • That's painful.
  • 00:07:13.880 --> 00:07:15.481
  • I've been through that.
  • 00:07:15.515 --> 00:07:16.816
  • I've been through the rejectionof some of my brothers
  • 00:07:16.849 --> 00:07:19.785
  • and sisters in the Lord.
  • 00:07:19.819 --> 00:07:21.120
  • It's painful.
  • 00:07:21.153 --> 00:07:22.955
  • I understand rejection.
  • 00:07:22.989 --> 00:07:25.157
  • But Jesusunderstands rejection as well.
  • 00:07:25.191 --> 00:07:28.127
  • Look at what he said inJohn chapter 6 and 7.
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:31.364
  • John 6:71.
  • 00:07:31.397 --> 00:07:34.233
  • John 6:71.
  • 00:07:34.267 --> 00:07:36.836
  • This is something, John 6:71.
  • 00:07:36.869 --> 00:07:41.507
  • He says, "He spake of JudasIscariot the son of Simon: for
  • 00:07:41.541 --> 00:07:47.680
  • he it was that should betrayhim, being one of the 12."
  • 00:07:47.713 --> 00:07:53.653
  • Listen to me.
  • 00:07:53.686 --> 00:07:54.987
  • Jesus was betrayed by oneof his closest associates.
  • 00:07:55.021 --> 00:07:57.790
  • He understandswhat betrayal's like.
  • 00:07:57.823 --> 00:08:01.294
  • You know, it doesn't really hurtunless you have a relationship.
  • 00:08:01.327 --> 00:08:04.230
  • Imagine what that felt like,being betrayed by one
  • 00:08:04.263 --> 00:08:06.566
  • of your closest associates.
  • 00:08:06.599 --> 00:08:08.067
  • And then look atPsalms 41 and 9 in the NLT.
  • 00:08:08.100 --> 00:08:12.638
  • Psalms 41 and 9, I mean, youknow, Jesus knows what it's like
  • 00:08:12.672 --> 00:08:16.776
  • to be kind to someone and togive your all to them
  • 00:08:16.809 --> 00:08:20.613
  • and they just turn against you.
  • 00:08:20.646 --> 00:08:22.114
  • Look at what he saysin Psalms 41 and 9.
  • 00:08:22.148 --> 00:08:24.951
  • He said, "Even my best friend,the one I trusted completely,
  • 00:08:24.984 --> 00:08:29.822
  • the one who shared my food,has turned against me," wow.
  • 00:08:29.855 --> 00:08:36.596
  • That is prophetic thatthat was gonna happen.
  • 00:08:36.629 --> 00:08:38.965
  • I mean, this is understood.
  • 00:08:38.998 --> 00:08:40.533
  • I mean, this is a serious thing.
  • 00:08:40.566 --> 00:08:41.867
  • It's--as we deal with the painof broken relationship we must
  • 00:08:41.901 --> 00:08:46.606
  • understand that, you know, Jesusknows about this, he understands
  • 00:08:46.639 --> 00:08:50.910
  • rejection, and yet he sayssomething in 1 Peter chapter 5
  • 00:08:50.943 --> 00:08:54.447
  • and 7 that we have got to get ahold of, that in the midst of
  • 00:08:54.480 --> 00:08:58.985
  • that rejection he says, 1 Peter5 and 7, turn there, he talks
  • 00:08:59.018 --> 00:09:03.055
  • about casting your care on him.
  • 00:09:03.089 --> 00:09:05.758
  • It's something about, yeah,I'm going through this pain,
  • 00:09:05.791 --> 00:09:10.296
  • but I have access to Jesus.
  • 00:09:10.329 --> 00:09:14.567
  • And if I'll cast all mycare upon him, why?
  • 00:09:14.600 --> 00:09:18.337
  • 'Cause he cares for me.
  • 00:09:18.371 --> 00:09:20.272
  • What is it sayingwhen you keep the care?
  • 00:09:20.306 --> 00:09:23.876
  • What is it saying when you say,"Yeah, I'm gonna keep the care."
  • 00:09:23.909 --> 00:09:27.880
  • First of all, it's saying youdon't believe.
  • 00:09:27.913 --> 00:09:30.282
  • You don't believethat he can take it.
  • 00:09:30.316 --> 00:09:31.651
  • You don't believe he can handleit so you immediately allow
  • 00:09:31.684 --> 00:09:33.753
  • your fear to put you intoself-preservation and you think,
  • 00:09:33.786 --> 00:09:36.722
  • "Well, I'm gonna handle this."
  • 00:09:36.756 --> 00:09:39.592
  • God knows how todeal with it, man.
  • 00:09:39.625 --> 00:09:42.828
  • And then look at Romanschapter 12 and verse 15.
  • 00:09:42.862 --> 00:09:47.066
  • It was so amazing to me.
  • 00:09:47.099 --> 00:09:48.801
  • I see--I see thelove of God here.
  • 00:09:48.834 --> 00:09:51.437
  • You know, sometimes we think ofhim as, you know, the God on the
  • 00:09:51.470 --> 00:09:53.906
  • throne and, you know, he's sobusy being flawless that he
  • 00:09:53.939 --> 00:09:57.843
  • doesn't--he can't feel me.
  • 00:09:57.877 --> 00:09:59.745
  • You know, you feel me?
  • 00:09:59.779 --> 00:10:01.080
  • He can't feel me.
  • 00:10:01.113 --> 00:10:02.481
  • And that's not what it is.That's not like him at all.
  • 00:10:02.515 --> 00:10:05.351
  • He says in Romans chapter 12,excuse me, yeah, Romans 12:15,
  • 00:10:05.384 --> 00:10:11.357
  • he says, "Rejoice with them thatdo rejoice," but he said this,
  • 00:10:11.390 --> 00:10:15.728
  • "And he'd weep withthose that weep."
  • 00:10:15.761 --> 00:10:18.330
  • He'll do that.
  • 00:10:18.364 --> 00:10:19.665
  • He will weep withthose who weep.
  • 00:10:19.699 --> 00:10:22.501
  • And here's a thing thatblessed me more than anything.
  • 00:10:22.535 --> 00:10:24.437
  • Hebrews chapter 4 and 5, thatmy feelings and my hurt and my
  • 00:10:24.470 --> 00:10:29.608
  • pain, Jesus knows about that.
  • 00:10:29.642 --> 00:10:33.879
  • Jesus understands whatbetrayal feels like.
  • 00:10:33.913 --> 00:10:38.384
  • Jesus understands what rejectionfeels like and in Hebrews
  • 00:10:38.417 --> 00:10:44.657
  • chapter 4:15, he saysthis, Hebrews 4:15.
  • 00:10:44.690 --> 00:10:53.132
  • He talks about how he is--hesays, "For we have not a high
  • 00:10:53.165 --> 00:10:56.802
  • priest which cannot betouched with the feeling of our
  • 00:10:56.836 --> 00:11:01.340
  • infirmities," weaknesses,"but was in all points, he was
  • 00:11:01.373 --> 00:11:06.545
  • tempted," tested, "like aswe are, yet without sin."
  • 00:11:06.579 --> 00:11:12.218
  • So we don't have a high priestthat doesn't
  • 00:11:12.251 --> 00:11:16.856
  • understand how we feel.
  • 00:11:16.889 --> 00:11:19.725
  • "Oh, but you justdon't know how I feel.
  • 00:11:19.759 --> 00:11:21.427
  • You just don't knowwhat I go through."
  • 00:11:21.460 --> 00:11:22.795
  • Jesus does.
  • 00:11:22.828 --> 00:11:24.430
  • "Yeah, but you don'tknow just how bad it hurt."
  • 00:11:24.463 --> 00:11:26.132
  • Jesus does.
  • 00:11:26.165 --> 00:11:28.000
  • "Well, you justdon't understand.
  • 00:11:28.033 --> 00:11:29.335
  • I just wanna take my life."
  • 00:11:29.368 --> 00:11:30.669
  • Jesus does, and quittalking about taking your life.
  • 00:11:30.703 --> 00:11:32.605
  • Listen, listen,you're gonna be shocked.
  • 00:11:32.638 --> 00:11:37.009
  • You don't wanna go to heavenbefore you're supposed
  • 00:11:37.042 --> 00:11:38.377
  • to be there, ha.
  • 00:11:38.410 --> 00:11:40.813
  • Don't do that.
  • 00:11:40.846 --> 00:11:43.082
  • There's a lotyou're supposed to do.
  • 00:11:43.115 --> 00:11:44.650
  • There's a charge to keep.
  • 00:11:44.683 --> 00:11:46.719
  • There's something that Godhas put on your life to do.
  • 00:11:46.752 --> 00:11:49.922
  • If you were not that importantto the plan of God,
  • 00:11:49.955 --> 00:11:53.559
  • why is Satan attacking you so?
  • 00:11:53.592 --> 00:11:56.295
  • 'Cause he wants you.
  • 00:11:56.328 --> 00:11:57.663
  • He wants you out of the way.
  • 00:11:57.696 --> 00:11:59.665
  • He doesn't have no--he doesn'twanna worry about how to combat
  • 00:11:59.698 --> 00:12:03.502
  • the anointing thatyou have on your life.
  • 00:12:03.536 --> 00:12:06.939
  • So put the gun down.
  • 00:12:06.972 --> 00:12:08.707
  • Put the knife down.
  • 00:12:08.741 --> 00:12:10.876
  • You're gonna be all right.
  • 00:12:10.910 --> 00:12:12.945
  • Jesus is near you, praise God.
  • 00:12:12.978 --> 00:12:15.848
  • And I know there are peoplearound you who say,
  • 00:12:15.881 --> 00:12:17.516
  • "Well, that's religion."
  • 00:12:17.550 --> 00:12:18.851
  • This is not religion.
  • 00:12:18.884 --> 00:12:20.186
  • This is a relationship with aman who has been sent to comfort
  • 00:12:20.219 --> 00:12:24.924
  • us and walk with us and guideus and care for us in this life
  • 00:12:24.957 --> 00:12:30.796
  • that we're living, amen,amen, amen, amen, and amen.
  • 00:12:30.830 --> 00:12:39.305
  • He knows how much you can bear.
  • 00:12:39.338 --> 00:12:43.108
  • And so what we choose to dowith that hurt
  • 00:12:43.142 --> 00:12:48.447
  • and with that disappointment,I mean, it's gonna be--it's
  • 00:12:48.480 --> 00:12:52.418
  • gonna be on us, folks.
  • 00:12:52.451 --> 00:12:54.119
  • A broken relationship can bethe source of a lot of negative
  • 00:12:54.153 --> 00:12:58.490
  • emotions and you and I both knowhow futile it is to allow our
  • 00:12:58.524 --> 00:13:03.062
  • lives to be led by our emotions.
  • 00:13:03.095 --> 00:13:05.464
  • I mean, it is going to bepointless and it's gonna be
  • 00:13:05.497 --> 00:13:07.933
  • useless if you let yourlife be led by your emotions.
  • 00:13:07.967 --> 00:13:12.071
  • Jesus Christ hasblessed us with what?
  • 00:13:12.104 --> 00:13:14.940
  • Ephesians 1 and 3, "withevery spiritual blessing."
  • 00:13:14.974 --> 00:13:19.011
  • He has made us accepted in him.
  • 00:13:19.044 --> 00:13:22.781
  • You know that Scripture,Ephesians chapter 1 and verse 6?
  • 00:13:22.815 --> 00:13:26.151
  • "He has made usaccepted in him."
  • 00:13:26.185 --> 00:13:29.455
  • We are accepted in him.
  • 00:13:29.488 --> 00:13:31.257
  • Now, you're gonna have tobelieve that I have been made
  • 00:13:31.290 --> 00:13:34.093
  • accepted in him.
  • 00:13:34.126 --> 00:13:35.427
  • Ephesians 1 and 6, he says, "Tothe praise and the glory of his
  • 00:13:35.461 --> 00:13:38.764
  • grace, wherein he hath madeus accepted in the beloved."
  • 00:13:38.797 --> 00:13:45.337
  • Right now you say,"I've been accepted.
  • 00:13:45.371 --> 00:13:47.006
  • I am his beloved."
  • 00:13:47.039 --> 00:13:48.941
  • And you know, you're workinghard for people to accept you,
  • 00:13:48.974 --> 00:13:51.877
  • you're doing all kindsof things to be accepted.
  • 00:13:51.911 --> 00:13:54.280
  • You're doing things that evenmake you feel uncomfortable.
  • 00:13:54.313 --> 00:13:56.615
  • You're doing things that youdon't even believe in, so you
  • 00:13:56.649 --> 00:14:00.519
  • can be accepted by other people,and Jesus says, "I've already
  • 00:14:00.552 --> 00:14:03.889
  • accepted you, my son.
  • 00:14:03.923 --> 00:14:05.758
  • I've already accepted you."
  • 00:14:05.791 --> 00:14:07.226
  • This acceptance transcends allfeelings of rejection that we
  • 00:14:07.259 --> 00:14:12.631
  • may have because this is notbased on "I hope I'm accepted."
  • 00:14:12.665 --> 00:14:21.941
  • This is based on "I knowI'm accepted."
  • 00:14:21.974 --> 00:14:26.545
  • And so you can't go aroundsaying, "Well, I sure hope
  • 00:14:26.578 --> 00:14:28.847
  • I'm accepted."
  • 00:14:28.881 --> 00:14:30.649
  • No, you've got to goto this next point.
  • 00:14:30.683 --> 00:14:32.384
  • I know I'm accepted.
  • 00:14:32.418 --> 00:14:34.420
  • I am accepted in the beloved.
  • 00:14:34.453 --> 00:14:36.855
  • And every time this thoughtcomes to your mind, you know,
  • 00:14:36.889 --> 00:14:39.858
  • that you're not accepted and youstart doing things to compromise
  • 00:14:39.892 --> 00:14:43.429
  • who you are or what you believebecause you want other people to
  • 00:14:43.462 --> 00:14:45.497
  • accept you, you remind yourself,"I know I'm accepted by God,"
  • 00:14:45.531 --> 00:14:49.902
  • instead of "I hopeI'm accepted by God."
  • 00:14:49.935 --> 00:14:53.672
  • We know that God hasaccepted us because why?
  • 00:14:53.706 --> 00:14:56.141
  • 'Cause God's Word tells us so.
  • 00:14:56.175 --> 00:14:58.410
  • And as we appropriate this truthby faith, it changes our heart
  • 00:14:58.444 --> 00:15:04.450
  • and it changes our lives.
  • 00:15:04.483 --> 00:15:06.251
  • Because we take possessionof the truth of God's Word by
  • 00:15:06.285 --> 00:15:09.989
  • faith, it changes ourheart, it changes our lives.
  • 00:15:10.022 --> 00:15:13.592
  • I'm sure.
  • 00:15:13.625 --> 00:15:14.927
  • People who don't understandthis, they think, "Well, how's
  • 00:15:14.960 --> 00:15:16.428
  • that gonna help me?"
  • 00:15:16.462 --> 00:15:18.030
  • And then you proceed to try todo those things that the world
  • 00:15:18.063 --> 00:15:21.166
  • recommends and all of a suddenyou've exalted those things
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:23.669
  • higher than God but there'snothing greater than God's Word.
  • 00:15:23.702 --> 00:15:28.040
  • But you gotta learnhow to accept it.
  • 00:15:28.073 --> 00:15:29.742
  • You gotta learn how totake possession of it.
  • 00:15:29.775 --> 00:15:32.311
  • You gotta learn how toappropriate this truth into your
  • 00:15:32.344 --> 00:15:35.981
  • life by faith, and you see whatGod has already done but so many
  • 00:15:36.015 --> 00:15:42.521
  • people don't know how to takehold or take possession of what
  • 00:15:42.554 --> 00:15:45.758
  • God has already done.
  • 00:15:45.791 --> 00:15:47.359
  • And you take the cheaper or whatthe world has to offer over the
  • 00:15:47.393 --> 00:15:50.396
  • deeper, what Jesus hasalready done for you.
  • 00:15:50.429 --> 00:15:55.134
  • It's gotta change.
  • 00:15:55.167 --> 00:15:57.269
  • You have so much faith in thetherapist and no faith at all in
  • 00:15:57.302 --> 00:16:00.472
  • Jesus who willcompletely delivered you.
  • 00:16:00.506 --> 00:16:04.476
  • You have so much faith in thestrategy of a life coach and
  • 00:16:04.510 --> 00:16:08.147
  • have no faith at all in theone who created life
  • 00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:11.784
  • and knows exactly how it'ssupposed to work.
  • 00:16:11.817 --> 00:16:15.587
  • And I'm telling you, you mightget some little results as far
  • 00:16:15.621 --> 00:16:19.925
  • as intensity but you're nevergonna be completely healed
  • 00:16:19.958 --> 00:16:23.195
  • doing it their way.
  • 00:16:23.228 --> 00:16:24.530
  • They don't know the way thatgets you completely
  • 00:16:24.563 --> 00:16:26.165
  • healed of a broken heart.
  • 00:16:26.198 --> 00:16:28.500
  • But Jesus is a specialist inhealing you of a broken heart.
  • 00:16:28.534 --> 00:16:35.541
  • But you gotta know how to--yougotta know how to operate
  • 00:16:35.574 --> 00:16:38.343
  • in his system, and hissystem is by faith.
  • 00:16:38.377 --> 00:16:43.115
  • His system is find the promise,receive that promise by faith,
  • 00:16:43.148 --> 00:16:48.153
  • and keep it and it will changeyour heart
  • 00:16:48.187 --> 00:16:50.756
  • and it will change your life.
  • 00:16:50.789 --> 00:16:53.759
  • The world might change yourthinking for a moment, which
  • 00:16:53.792 --> 00:16:56.528
  • will change your feelings for amoment
  • 00:16:56.562 --> 00:16:58.497
  • and then you think you're there.
  • 00:16:58.530 --> 00:17:00.466
  • But God digs deep and he takesthe root of that situation out
  • 00:17:00.499 --> 00:17:05.771
  • and you wake up one daycompletely restored
  • 00:17:05.804 --> 00:17:09.708
  • because you took what he said.
  • 00:17:09.741 --> 00:17:12.111
  • Praise God.
  • 00:17:12.144 --> 00:17:13.545
  • So everyone experiences the hurtof a broken relationship
  • 00:17:13.579 --> 00:17:15.681
  • at one time or another.
  • 00:17:15.714 --> 00:17:17.683
  • We are bound to behurt and disappointed.
  • 00:17:17.716 --> 00:17:21.787
  • Why?
  • 00:17:21.820 --> 00:17:23.122
  • Because we live in a fallenworld and, like I said before,
  • 00:17:23.155 --> 00:17:25.390
  • what we choose to do with thathurt and disappointment can make
  • 00:17:25.424 --> 00:17:28.861
  • us stronger in our walk with theLord Jesus Christ or it can be
  • 00:17:28.894 --> 00:17:32.030
  • something that destroys us.
  • 00:17:32.064 --> 00:17:34.433
  • God promises to walk through thedisappointment in life with us.
  • 00:17:34.466 --> 00:17:39.605
  • We saw that in Hebrews 13 and 5.
  • 00:17:39.638 --> 00:17:42.007
  • He says, "I'm never gonnaleave you nor forsake you."
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:44.042
  • He wants us to know hisprovisions that he's made
  • 00:17:44.076 --> 00:17:47.346
  • available to us.
  • 00:17:47.379 --> 00:17:48.680
  • He wants us to know thatthose provisions are sure.
  • 00:17:48.714 --> 00:17:51.950
  • His grace and comfort are oursif we can learn
  • 00:17:51.984 --> 00:17:57.422
  • how to rest in him.
  • 00:17:57.456 --> 00:18:00.192
  • And that's the highest kind offaith: the faith where you so
  • 00:18:00.225 --> 00:18:03.362
  • believe that you findrest and say, "All is well."
  • 00:18:03.395 --> 00:18:09.401
  • You know, here's somethingI learned about
  • 00:18:09.434 --> 00:18:10.736
  • every born again child of God.
  • 00:18:10.769 --> 00:18:12.070
  • Every born again child of Godhas blessings in Christ, but we
  • 00:18:12.104 --> 00:18:16.875
  • have to choose to utilize them.
  • 00:18:16.909 --> 00:18:19.411
  • What a--I mean, I keep goingback to what Taffi
  • 00:18:19.444 --> 00:18:21.046
  • was talking about.
  • 00:18:21.079 --> 00:18:22.414
  • We gotta choose to utilize them.
  • 00:18:22.447 --> 00:18:27.019
  • Living in constant gloomand dejection over a broken
  • 00:18:27.052 --> 00:18:29.855
  • relationship is like having amillion dollars in the bank and
  • 00:18:29.888 --> 00:18:33.759

  • 00:18:39.064 --> 00:18:44.303

  • 00:18:44.336 --> 00:18:47.673
  • "Yeah, but I don'tunderstand what I don't know."
  • 00:18:47.706 --> 00:18:49.208
  • It's 'cause you're--youdon't--you're
  • 00:18:49.241 --> 00:18:50.542
  • not getting in his Word.
  • 00:18:50.576 --> 00:18:51.944
  • You know, you're talking about"Oh God, make me better," but
  • 00:18:51.977 --> 00:18:54.112
  • you won't spend the time tofind out what he had to say.
  • 00:18:54.146 --> 00:18:58.016
  • You've been convinced by ourworld that doesn't know God, a
  • 00:18:58.050 --> 00:19:00.719
  • world that's directed by mammon,a world that trusts money more
  • 00:19:00.752 --> 00:19:04.056
  • than they trust God, andthen--and you're not--you know,
  • 00:19:04.089 --> 00:19:07.092
  • the Bible says, youknow, "Learn of me.
  • 00:19:07.125 --> 00:19:10.395
  • Take my yoke upon thee.
  • 00:19:10.429 --> 00:19:12.197
  • My yoke is easy.
  • 00:19:12.231 --> 00:19:13.799
  • Learn of me."
  • 00:19:13.832 --> 00:19:18.403
  • But when you have a lack ofknowledge, just like the Bible
  • 00:19:18.437 --> 00:19:20.405
  • says, people are destroyedbecause of what they don't know.
  • 00:19:20.439 --> 00:19:26.778
  • Therefore, every believer shouldseek to, like the Scripture
  • 00:19:26.812 --> 00:19:30.048
  • says, I think it's 2 Peter 3 and18, seek to grow in the grace
  • 00:19:30.082 --> 00:19:35.220
  • and the knowledge of our Lord.
  • 00:19:35.254 --> 00:19:38.223
  • Seek to grow in the graceand the knowledge of our Lord.
  • 00:19:38.257 --> 00:19:42.828
  • Brokenness will take placebut you'll be ready for it.
  • 00:19:42.861 --> 00:19:45.564
  • You'll be ready for it.
  • 00:19:45.597 --> 00:19:46.898
  • Just like a lot ofWorld Changers, man.
  • 00:19:46.932 --> 00:19:49.668
  • You're ready for this.
  • 00:19:49.701 --> 00:19:51.670
  • You've been--some of you havebeen preparing for 20 years for
  • 00:19:51.703 --> 00:19:53.705
  • this pandemic.
  • 00:19:53.739 --> 00:19:55.107
  • You're ready for it.
  • 00:19:55.140 --> 00:19:56.441
  • You're ready for all theemotions that knock on the door,
  • 00:19:56.475 --> 00:19:57.809
  • all of the issues of life.
  • 00:19:57.843 --> 00:19:59.311
  • You're ready for it.
  • 00:19:59.344 --> 00:20:00.646
  • This Word has been sownon the inside of you.
  • 00:20:00.679 --> 00:20:01.980
  • You're good, man.You're good.
  • 00:20:02.014 --> 00:20:04.583

  • 00:20:04.616 --> 00:20:05.951

  • 00:20:05.984 --> 00:20:07.953
  • You've been prepared,you've been preparing.
  • 00:20:07.986 --> 00:20:10.822
  • You got that Word of faith onthe inside of you, praise God.
  • 00:20:10.856 --> 00:20:16.094
  • Romans 12 and 22 says we mustface life armed with a real
  • 00:20:16.128 --> 00:20:20.132
  • understanding of what itmeans to walk by faith.
  • 00:20:20.165 --> 00:20:23.035
  • And Romans 12:22 talksabout being transformed by the
  • 00:20:23.068 --> 00:20:25.804
  • renewing of your mind, by therenewing--you've heard me say
  • 00:20:25.837 --> 00:20:29.174
  • this before: the greatest thingyou can do as a individual on
  • 00:20:29.207 --> 00:20:34.479
  • the earth is to get born again.
  • 00:20:34.513 --> 00:20:36.948
  • The greatest thing the bornagain person can do
  • 00:20:36.982 --> 00:20:39.551
  • is to renew your mind.
  • 00:20:39.584 --> 00:20:41.420
  • So if you are born again and ifyou've made Jesus the Lord of
  • 00:20:41.453 --> 00:20:44.089
  • your life, are you in theprocess of renewing your mind?
  • 00:20:44.122 --> 00:20:49.027
  • You know, I used to be a Baptistpreacher and I sure loved
  • 00:20:49.061 --> 00:20:51.363
  • whooping and I used to lovehollering until one day I
  • 00:20:51.396 --> 00:20:53.632
  • realized in talking to some ofthe people I was preaching to
  • 00:20:53.665 --> 00:20:57.002
  • that there was really notransformation going on.
  • 00:20:57.035 --> 00:21:00.405
  • And I decided I didn't wannadie and go to heaven, realized
  • 00:21:00.439 --> 00:21:03.408
  • I performed and could tear achurch up and they could do
  • 00:21:03.442 --> 00:21:05.777
  • cartwheels and flips, but Ididn't give 'em nothing
  • 00:21:05.811 --> 00:21:10.048
  • to help 'em transform.
  • 00:21:10.082 --> 00:21:12.484
  • And that's why I standflatfooted and teach the Word of
  • 00:21:12.517 --> 00:21:14.619
  • God and I know, I know a lotof people don't wanna hear
  • 00:21:14.653 --> 00:21:17.456
  • teaching, they don't wannahear a boring guy go
  • 00:21:17.489 --> 00:21:19.491
  • from one Scripture to anotherScripture, "Nya, nya, nya.
  • 00:21:19.524 --> 00:21:22.361
  • I want me some dessert.
  • 00:21:22.394 --> 00:21:24.029
  • I want somethingto get me going."
  • 00:21:24.062 --> 00:21:26.832
  • No, no, no, no, no, ain't got noproblem with that but that's not
  • 00:21:26.865 --> 00:21:30.035
  • what he called me to do.
  • 00:21:30.068 --> 00:21:31.436
  • Now, I love good preaching andI know some good preachers and
  • 00:21:31.470 --> 00:21:33.772
  • when I wanna hear goodpreachers, I call my friends.
  • 00:21:33.805 --> 00:21:36.708
  • But we got to eat somethingthat will help us
  • 00:21:36.742 --> 00:21:39.644
  • to change our thinking.
  • 00:21:39.678 --> 00:21:42.681
  • We've got to transform theway we think because
  • 00:21:42.714 --> 00:21:46.651
  • "as a man thinketh in hisheart, so is he."
  • 00:21:46.685 --> 00:21:51.723
  • And the most important thing youcan do is renew your mind and be
  • 00:21:51.757 --> 00:21:55.193
  • in the process of renewing yourmind and you face life armed
  • 00:21:55.227 --> 00:22:00.599
  • and you're ready forwhatever may come.
  • 00:22:00.632 --> 00:22:02.734
  • So as believers, we are notdefined by past failures.
  • 00:22:02.768 --> 00:22:09.007
  • The world wants to do that.
  • 00:22:09.040 --> 00:22:10.642
  • The world loves trying to defineyou based on what you did 10
  • 00:22:10.675 --> 00:22:15.013
  • years ago, 20 years, and they--Idon't know what it is about the
  • 00:22:15.046 --> 00:22:18.884
  • world loves taking stuff thatyou've done a long time ago and
  • 00:22:18.917 --> 00:22:22.020
  • they try to just keep you there.
  • 00:22:22.053 --> 00:22:24.256
  • And the problem with that isthat it's so hard for you to
  • 00:22:24.289 --> 00:22:26.892
  • judge that person based on whatyou saw 20 years ago because
  • 00:22:26.925 --> 00:22:30.629
  • they have moved onfrom that place.
  • 00:22:30.662 --> 00:22:33.265
  • You're the only onethat hasn't moved on.
  • 00:22:33.298 --> 00:22:35.934
  • They've moved onfrom that place.
  • 00:22:35.967 --> 00:22:37.469
  • They're not even nowhere thesame as they used to be,
  • 00:22:37.502 --> 00:22:40.071
  • but you label them thereand you keep them there.
  • 00:22:40.105 --> 00:22:42.908
  • That's why it's so hard tofind real true leadership in our
  • 00:22:42.941 --> 00:22:46.077
  • country 'cause people are tooafraid to run for office because
  • 00:22:46.111 --> 00:22:50.081
  • all you gonna do is go back andreport on what they used to be
  • 00:22:50.115 --> 00:22:54.085
  • instead of finding outwho they are right now.
  • 00:22:54.119 --> 00:22:57.055
  • And so we don't have theprivilege of the wonderful
  • 00:22:57.088 --> 00:23:00.992
  • leaders that are in our countryand in our nation
  • 00:23:01.026 --> 00:23:03.929
  • because they're just like,"I just don't feel like
  • 00:23:03.962 --> 00:23:06.364
  • going through all that."
  • 00:23:06.398 --> 00:23:08.233
  • They didn't make--it's not likenobody--ain't nobody perfect.
  • 00:23:08.266 --> 00:23:12.204
  • And yet, you judge peopleas if you are
  • 00:23:12.237 --> 00:23:15.507
  • and pat yourself on the back.
  • 00:23:15.540 --> 00:23:19.144
  • No, I wanna tell you somethingright now, Christian.
  • 00:23:19.177 --> 00:23:22.047
  • Listen to me loud and clear.
  • 00:23:22.080 --> 00:23:24.449
  • We are not judged, believers,we are not defined by our past
  • 00:23:24.483 --> 00:23:30.188
  • failures, we are not defined byour past disappointments,
  • 00:23:30.222 --> 00:23:34.659
  • we are not defined by therejection of others.
  • 00:23:34.693 --> 00:23:39.731

  • hallelujah.
  • 00:23:45.403 --> 00:23:47.239
  • We are his children.
  • 00:23:47.272 --> 00:23:48.607
  • We are born again tothe newness of life.
  • 00:23:48.640 --> 00:23:51.109
  • We are endowed withevery spiritual blessings.
  • 00:23:51.142 --> 00:23:54.079
  • We have beenaccepted in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:23:54.112 --> 00:23:57.082
  • We have faith thatovercomes the world.
  • 00:23:57.115 --> 00:24:00.252
