  • Creflo: Now, Philippianschapter 4, verse 6 through 7.
  • 00:01:42.315 --> 00:01:50.657
  • A'ight now, I'maease into this.
  • 00:01:50.690 --> 00:01:56.129
  • This is so important, verse 6,and he says: "Be careful,"
  • 00:01:56.162 --> 00:02:00.800
  • or, "Don't be anxious."
  • 00:02:00.833 --> 00:02:02.135
  • He's talkin' aboutan emotion here.
  • 00:02:02.168 --> 00:02:03.703
  • "Don't be anxious for nothing."
  • 00:02:03.736 --> 00:02:05.972
  • "Don't be anxious," anxiety.
  • 00:02:06.005 --> 00:02:08.775
  • Don't be anxious for nothin',but in everything," he said,
  • 00:02:08.808 --> 00:02:11.744
  • "by prayer and supplication withthanksgiving let your requests
  • 00:02:11.778 --> 00:02:14.681
  • be made known unto God," okay?
  • 00:02:14.714 --> 00:02:17.350
  • Don't be anxious,but take it to God.
  • 00:02:17.383 --> 00:02:20.787
  • And he says, and what happensis when you do that, "The peace
  • 00:02:20.820 --> 00:02:23.223
  • of God, which passes allunderstandin', shall keep
  • 00:02:23.256 --> 00:02:26.092
  • your heart, and it'll keepyour mind through Christ Jesus."
  • 00:02:26.125 --> 00:02:32.298
  • It'll keep your emotions.
  • 00:02:32.332 --> 00:02:34.334
  • What he's saying is, isno matter what's goin' on,
  • 00:02:34.367 --> 00:02:36.569
  • take it to God, focusin on him; and for us,
  • 00:02:36.603 --> 00:02:40.640
  • we have somethin' thatthe world doesn't have,
  • 00:02:40.673 --> 00:02:43.243
  • a way to stabilize our emotions,a way and a person we can go
  • 00:02:43.276 --> 00:02:49.048
  • to to stabilize our emotions.
  • 00:02:49.082 --> 00:02:52.285
  • Where do you go through in themidst of a bad circumstance,
  • 00:02:52.318 --> 00:02:56.389
  • and the emotions are justgettin' ready to pop off?
  • 00:02:56.422 --> 00:02:59.025
  • He says, "Go to God."
  • 00:02:59.058 --> 00:03:00.927
  • Focus immediatelyon God and his Word.
  • 00:03:00.960 --> 00:03:03.863
  • That is what you have toharness your emotions
  • 00:03:03.896 --> 00:03:07.066
  • and to keep you emotions stable.
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:09.969
  • Now, if you don't makeuse of that as Christians,
  • 00:03:10.003 --> 00:03:12.305
  • then your emotions will justpop off just like the world
  • 00:03:12.338 --> 00:03:14.574
  • 'cause they not goin' to God.
  • 00:03:14.607 --> 00:03:16.476
  • They're goin' to logic.
  • 00:03:16.509 --> 00:03:17.810
  • They're goin' to humanism.
  • 00:03:17.844 --> 00:03:19.145
  • You and I, we can control ouremotions because we are going to
  • 00:03:19.178 --> 00:03:23.349
  • focus on God when ouremotions try to do somethin'
  • 00:03:23.383 --> 00:03:28.054
  • they don't need to be doing.
  • 00:03:28.087 --> 00:03:30.023
  • So, first base, I needto put my emotions
  • 00:03:30.056 --> 00:03:32.592
  • on God, not the circumstance.
  • 00:03:32.625 --> 00:03:35.428
  • I need to put it on God.
  • 00:03:35.461 --> 00:03:36.963
  • And that's so easier said thandone 'cause I know a lot of us,
  • 00:03:36.996 --> 00:03:40.366
  • we don't do that right away.
  • 00:03:40.400 --> 00:03:41.701
  • That's not the firstthing you think about,
  • 00:03:41.734 --> 00:03:43.036
  • but eventually, you gottacome to the point of saying,
  • 00:03:43.069 --> 00:03:44.971
  • "Before this thing popsoff, I've got to get God."
  • 00:03:45.004 --> 00:03:48.107
  • Even to just say somethin',"Jesus, help me."
  • 00:03:48.141 --> 00:03:50.476
  • Somethin' that will help getyour emotions to a place where
  • 00:03:50.510 --> 00:03:53.913
  • they're submitted to God.
  • 00:03:53.946 --> 00:03:56.149
  • All right, now, now,remember John 14:1.
  • 00:03:56.182 --> 00:03:59.352
  • The Lord doesn't expect us tohave positive emotions only
  • 00:03:59.385 --> 00:04:02.989
  • when everything isgoin' our way.
  • 00:04:03.022 --> 00:04:05.625
  • John 14:1 says: "I wantyou to have good
  • 00:04:05.658 --> 00:04:08.628
  • emotions when you're in trouble.
  • 00:04:08.661 --> 00:04:10.963
  • I want you to have goodemotions when things
  • 00:04:10.997 --> 00:04:13.099
  • are not going your way."
  • 00:04:13.132 --> 00:04:16.069
  • He's not expectin' for us justto have positive emotions just
  • 00:04:16.102 --> 00:04:18.504
  • when everything's goin' our way.
  • 00:04:18.538 --> 00:04:19.839
  • And basically, that's whatthe world has been
  • 00:04:19.872 --> 00:04:21.641
  • taught, includin' the church.
  • 00:04:21.674 --> 00:04:23.476
  • "Hey, when everything'sgoin' good, I'm good."
  • 00:04:23.509 --> 00:04:25.978
  • But Jesus is sayin', "No, I wantyou to have the right emotions
  • 00:04:26.012 --> 00:04:29.082
  • when things arenot goin' your way."
  • 00:04:29.115 --> 00:04:32.085
  • That's what makes us holy.
  • 00:04:32.118 --> 00:04:35.188
  • We separate ourselves fromhow the world governs their
  • 00:04:35.221 --> 00:04:38.891
  • emotions and how we do it.
  • 00:04:38.925 --> 00:04:40.960
  • We won't do it, theworld says, "Well, if
  • 00:04:40.993 --> 00:04:42.962
  • circumstances bad,emotions bad."
  • 00:04:42.995 --> 00:04:46.232
  • Christians say,"Circumstances bad,
  • 00:04:46.265 --> 00:04:48.101
  • but I choose to have these kindof emotions that line up
  • 00:04:48.134 --> 00:04:50.436
  • with the Word of God,"that's what makes us holy.
  • 00:04:50.470 --> 00:04:52.705
  • Holiness is always aboutnot being common with the world.
  • 00:04:52.739 --> 00:04:55.675
  • That's what holiness is.
  • 00:04:55.708 --> 00:04:57.543
  • Holiness is, "I'm gonna be doin'opposite what the world's gonna
  • 00:04:57.577 --> 00:05:01.013
  • be doin', andconduct myself that way."
  • 00:05:01.047 --> 00:05:04.083
  • Now, let me showyou this, John 16:33.
  • 00:05:04.117 --> 00:05:10.456
  • Oh, this is a fascinatingjourney we takin'
  • 00:05:10.490 --> 00:05:12.725
  • here tonight, praise God.
  • 00:05:12.759 --> 00:05:14.994
  • "'These things haveI spoken unto you,
  • 00:05:15.027 --> 00:05:17.230
  • that in me you might have peace.
  • 00:05:17.263 --> 00:05:20.767
  • In the world, you'regonna have,'" what?
  • 00:05:20.800 --> 00:05:24.370
  • "In the world,you're gonna have," what?
  • 00:05:24.404 --> 00:05:27.173
  • Excuse my English, but what isit you gonna have in this world?
  • 00:05:27.206 --> 00:05:31.544
  • Some trouble, right?
  • 00:05:31.577 --> 00:05:33.112
  • So why you keepgettin' surprised,
  • 00:05:33.146 --> 00:05:36.449
  • like it's not supposedto come upon you?
  • 00:05:36.482 --> 00:05:38.851
  • Watch this, and thetime trouble comes on you,
  • 00:05:38.885 --> 00:05:41.621
  • you start blamingyourself for the trouble.
  • 00:05:41.654 --> 00:05:45.391
  • You remember you'reunder the grace of God.
  • 00:05:45.425 --> 00:05:47.794
  • God is notresponding to your behavior.
  • 00:05:47.827 --> 00:05:49.729
  • He's responding to your belief.
  • 00:05:49.762 --> 00:05:52.265
  • Are you listenin' to me?
  • 00:05:52.298 --> 00:05:53.699
  • And you keep--every timesomethin' happens to you,
  • 00:05:53.733 --> 00:05:55.568
  • you wanna blame yourself for it.
  • 00:05:55.601 --> 00:05:57.737
  • "Oh, I couldn't pay this bill.
  • 00:05:57.770 --> 00:05:59.272
  • I must've didsomethin' to deserve this."
  • 00:05:59.305 --> 00:06:01.441
  • You don't understandwhat this grace is about.
  • 00:06:01.474 --> 00:06:04.043
  • "Oh, you know, if I'daprayed a little longer,
  • 00:06:04.076 --> 00:06:06.913
  • then this mightnot have happened.
  • 00:06:06.946 --> 00:06:08.247
  • I did somethin' tomake this happen to me."
  • 00:06:08.281 --> 00:06:10.149
  • That's--you're underthe grace of God.
  • 00:06:10.183 --> 00:06:11.484
  • You're not under the law,where sin was judged harshly.
  • 00:06:11.517 --> 00:06:15.488
  • So, when we are facingtrials and tribulations,
  • 00:06:15.521 --> 00:06:17.890
  • we are commanded to be of what?
  • 00:06:17.924 --> 00:06:19.992
  • "Good cheer because Jesushas overcome the world."
  • 00:06:20.026 --> 00:06:23.996
  • He says, "You know what?
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:25.331
  • In the middle of trouble, Icommand you," what is he sayin'?
  • 00:06:25.364 --> 00:06:28.501
  • Take authority of your emotions.
  • 00:06:28.534 --> 00:06:31.437
  • Talk to your soul.
  • 00:06:31.471 --> 00:06:33.840
  • "Soul, bless the Lord.
  • 00:06:33.873 --> 00:06:36.242
  • Be of good cheer."
  • 00:06:36.275 --> 00:06:38.845
  • When's the lasttime you did that?
  • 00:06:38.878 --> 00:06:41.013
  • When's the last time whenyou thought, "I am gonna
  • 00:06:41.047 --> 00:06:42.982
  • bite the bullet," and yousaid, "You know what?
  • 00:06:43.015 --> 00:06:45.818
  • Soul, be of good cheer."
  • 00:06:45.852 --> 00:06:47.987
  • It's a powerful thing if youjust open your mouth and do it.
  • 00:06:48.020 --> 00:06:51.357
  • It's a powerful thing in themiddle of a crazy situation
  • 00:06:51.390 --> 00:06:54.293
  • if you'll just openyour mouth and do it.
  • 00:06:54.327 --> 00:06:58.397
  • Be of good cheer.
  • 00:06:58.431 --> 00:06:59.799
  • What are you doin'?You're talkin' to your soul.
  • 00:06:59.832 --> 00:07:02.101
  • You're talkin' to your emotions.
  • 00:07:02.134 --> 00:07:04.971
  • David, "Bless theLord, O my soul."
  • 00:07:05.004 --> 00:07:08.574
  • "Bless the Lord, O my soul."
  • 00:07:08.608 --> 00:07:09.909
  • "I don't feel like blessin' him.
  • 00:07:09.942 --> 00:07:11.244
  • I'm havin' a horribleday, but that's not
  • 00:07:11.277 --> 00:07:13.479
  • what I'm gonna choose.
  • 00:07:13.513 --> 00:07:14.814
  • Bless the Lord,be of good cheer."
  • 00:07:14.847 --> 00:07:17.250
  • Be of good cheer, boy.
  • 00:07:17.283 --> 00:07:18.751
  • You'd be amazed of the spiritualinteraction that takes place
  • 00:07:18.784 --> 00:07:23.122
  • when you take authority andcommand your emotions to line up
  • 00:07:23.155 --> 00:07:28.327
  • with the Word of God instead oflinin' up with the circumstance.
  • 00:07:28.361 --> 00:07:32.231
  • Now, our emotionalstability doesn't depend upon
  • 00:07:32.265 --> 00:07:37.003
  • circumstances orhow things are going.
  • 00:07:37.036 --> 00:07:39.672
  • "If my circumstancechanges," most people say,
  • 00:07:39.705 --> 00:07:43.175
  • "then everything'llbe all right."
  • 00:07:43.209 --> 00:07:45.311
  • How many of youknow that's not true?
  • 00:07:45.344 --> 00:07:47.013
  • Your circumstance canchange, but like I said before,
  • 00:07:47.046 --> 00:07:51.117
  • the problem a lot of timeis not your circumstances.
  • 00:07:51.150 --> 00:07:53.252
  • It's your emotions.
  • 00:07:53.286 --> 00:07:55.388
  • 'Cause a lot of times, people'scircumstance get their emotions
  • 00:07:55.421 --> 00:07:57.857
  • so messed up, then it causesdis-easement in their body
  • 00:07:57.890 --> 00:08:01.360
  • just from that one circumstance.
  • 00:08:01.394 --> 00:08:02.695
  • Do you know you can get cancerif you have the right kind of
  • 00:08:02.728 --> 00:08:05.498
  • circumstance and then allowyour emotions to respond
  • 00:08:05.531 --> 00:08:08.768
  • according to that circumstances?
  • 00:08:08.801 --> 00:08:10.503
  • It shocks your system intoa place, and before you know
  • 00:08:10.536 --> 00:08:13.239
  • it, cancer cells have sneakedout of their place and now
  • 00:08:13.272 --> 00:08:18.244
  • you're strugglin' with somethin'in your physical body because
  • 00:08:18.277 --> 00:08:21.480
  • you didn't know how totame your emotions
  • 00:08:21.514 --> 00:08:24.584
  • and take authorityof your emotions.
  • 00:08:24.617 --> 00:08:25.918
  • This is so, so very serious.
  • 00:08:25.952 --> 00:08:28.321
  • So, "If circumstances couldchange, then everything
  • 00:08:28.354 --> 00:08:30.690
  • would be all right," that'snot true, that's not true.
  • 00:08:30.723 --> 00:08:34.093
  • Everything's not gonnabe all right just 'cause
  • 00:08:34.126 --> 00:08:35.761
  • a few circumstances change.
  • 00:08:35.795 --> 00:08:37.897
  • You think it will.
  • 00:08:37.930 --> 00:08:39.265
  • "Oh, if I only hadmoney to pay all my bills,
  • 00:08:39.298 --> 00:08:41.067
  • then everythingwill be all right."
  • 00:08:41.100 --> 00:08:42.401
  • No, it's not,because you're emotional.
  • 00:08:42.435 --> 00:08:44.870
  • You don't even know howto control your emotions.
  • 00:08:44.904 --> 00:08:46.272
  • You lose yourtemper all the time.
  • 00:08:46.305 --> 00:08:48.040
  • Paying all your bills is notgonna make everything all right.
  • 00:08:48.074 --> 00:08:51.043
  • Do you know, I knowpeople who are out of debt, and
  • 00:08:51.077 --> 00:08:52.578
  • they're having more emotionalproblems than they were?
  • 00:08:52.612 --> 00:08:55.081
  • They thought theproblem was money.
  • 00:08:55.114 --> 00:08:56.415
  • The problem's not money.
  • 00:08:56.449 --> 00:08:58.150
  • The problem's not havin' a lotof money or not havin' no money.
  • 00:08:58.184 --> 00:09:01.020
  • Circumstances canaffect you some,
  • 00:09:01.053 --> 00:09:03.189
  • but that's not the whole deal.
  • 00:09:03.222 --> 00:09:04.624
  • You remember, the Bibletells us that godliness plus
  • 00:09:04.657 --> 00:09:08.461
  • contentment equals great gain.
  • 00:09:08.494 --> 00:09:10.630
  • You gotta learnhow to be content.
  • 00:09:10.663 --> 00:09:12.431
  • You gotta learnhow to be content.
  • 00:09:13.399 --> 00:09:14.700
  • You gotta learn how tobe content where you are.
  • 00:09:14.734 --> 00:09:17.803
  • And the way you become contentis you quit comparing yourself
  • 00:09:17.837 --> 00:09:20.840
  • amongst yourself and you startlookin' at God and thankin' him
  • 00:09:20.873 --> 00:09:24.210
  • for what he has done foryou instead of lookin' at one
  • 00:09:24.243 --> 00:09:26.445
  • another, and it's never enough.
  • 00:09:26.479 --> 00:09:28.314
  • It's never enoughlookin'--it's never enough.
  • 00:09:28.347 --> 00:09:30.216
  • You gotta look at God.It's always gonna be enough.
  • 00:09:30.249 --> 00:09:32.051
  • You look at one another,it's never gonna be enough.
  • 00:09:32.084 --> 00:09:33.919
  • Why?'Cause that's discontentment.
  • 00:09:33.953 --> 00:09:36.689
  • Always lookin' at what somebodyelse got, and you thinkin' that
  • 00:09:36.722 --> 00:09:39.558
  • you would be better ifyou could be in their situation.
  • 00:09:39.592 --> 00:09:42.294
  • No, no, no, you've gotto learn how to take
  • 00:09:42.328 --> 00:09:44.830
  • authority over your emotions.
  • 00:09:44.864 --> 00:09:46.298
  • So, yes, while circumstanceswill have some impact, it's not
  • 00:09:46.332 --> 00:09:49.935
  • gonna be the whole treatmentof what's goin' on in your life.
  • 00:09:49.969 --> 00:09:54.040
  • You gotta learn how to--thereare people I know that live in
  • 00:09:54.073 --> 00:09:57.943
  • horrible situations, but theygot a good attitude, and
  • 00:09:57.977 --> 00:10:02.048
  • they're much happierthan people that got
  • 00:10:02.081 --> 00:10:03.482
  • a whole bunch of stuff.
  • 00:10:03.516 --> 00:10:04.817
  • They--I know people who'velost this and lost that,
  • 00:10:04.850 --> 00:10:07.720
  • but they had a great attitude,and they just took it with a
  • 00:10:07.753 --> 00:10:10.022
  • grain of salt, and just wentahead and did--and they're much
  • 00:10:10.056 --> 00:10:12.658
  • happier than folks whoappear to have everything.
  • 00:10:12.692 --> 00:10:16.662
  • You're really never gonna getnothin' until you learn how to
  • 00:10:16.696 --> 00:10:18.998
  • be grateful forwhat you already got.
  • 00:10:19.031 --> 00:10:23.669
  • Because when you get somethin'more than what you already got,
  • 00:10:23.703 --> 00:10:26.672
  • you're not gonna even have--youringratitude and your bad
  • 00:10:26.706 --> 00:10:30.042
  • attitude is gonna somehowseparate you from the progress.
  • 00:10:30.076 --> 00:10:34.380
  • You gotta learn how tobe okay with you first.
  • 00:10:34.413 --> 00:10:37.149
  • You know, a lot of times, whenyou're not okay with you,
  • 00:10:37.183 --> 00:10:38.884
  • you ain't okay with nobody'cause you made 'cause
  • 00:10:38.918 --> 00:10:40.386
  • you ain't okay with you.
  • 00:10:40.419 --> 00:10:42.421
  • If you can be okay with you, andthen you can be okay with other
  • 00:10:42.455 --> 00:10:44.457
  • people, and then you canbe okay with where you are,
  • 00:10:44.490 --> 00:10:46.492
  • who you are, what you've got,and then learn how to be happy.
  • 00:10:46.525 --> 00:10:49.628
  • Isn't that what Paul said?
  • 00:10:49.662 --> 00:10:50.963
  • Paul says, "I can be--I'velearned how to be content
  • 00:10:50.996 --> 00:10:52.898
  • in any situation that I am in."
  • 00:10:52.932 --> 00:10:55.835
  • You gotta learn how tobe that way, all right?
  • 00:10:55.868 --> 00:10:57.369
  • So, the lights went out.
  • 00:10:57.403 --> 00:10:59.138
  • Oh, my God, you'remiserable and frustrated
  • 00:10:59.171 --> 00:11:01.173
  • because your lights went out.
  • 00:11:01.207 --> 00:11:02.508
  • Get a candle andsome pork and beans.
  • 00:11:02.541 --> 00:11:04.376
  • Get a Bible, pray intongues, and wait till
  • 00:11:04.410 --> 00:11:06.679
  • the lights come back on.
  • 00:11:06.712 --> 00:11:09.448
  • What's the matter with y'all?
  • 00:11:09.482 --> 00:11:13.719
  • Look at Psalms 139, and verse 8.
  • 00:11:13.753 --> 00:11:16.355
  • Let this be anencouragement to you that,
  • 00:11:16.388 --> 00:11:18.891
  • no matter where you are andwhat happens in your life,
  • 00:11:18.924 --> 00:11:21.927
  • let this be anencouragement with you.
  • 00:11:21.961 --> 00:11:26.432
  • Look at what he says here:"If I ascend up into heaven,
  • 00:11:26.465 --> 00:11:29.935
  • thou art there: if Imake my bed in hell,
  • 00:11:29.969 --> 00:11:34.874
  • behold, thou art there."
  • 00:11:34.907 --> 00:11:37.076
  • So no matter where you go, youfind the joy in knowin' that
  • 00:11:37.109 --> 00:11:43.749
  • wherever you go, God's there.
  • 00:11:43.783 --> 00:11:46.919
  • Wherever you are, and whoeveryou're with, God is there.
  • 00:11:46.952 --> 00:11:52.158
  • You should rejoice overthat, that "whatever
  • 00:11:52.191 --> 00:11:54.994
  • circumstance I'mwith, God's here.
  • 00:11:55.027 --> 00:11:57.296
  • Whatever situation I gotgoin' on, God's here.
  • 00:11:57.329 --> 00:12:00.399
  • The bills need to be paid,God's here, God's here."
  • 00:12:00.432 --> 00:12:04.537
  • You've got to be a Christianwho can pull that up and say,
  • 00:12:04.570 --> 00:12:09.375
  • "God's here, allwill be well, it'll be fine."
  • 00:12:09.408 --> 00:12:13.779
  • And constantly walk in faith.
  • 00:12:13.813 --> 00:12:15.181
  • I freak out over people when Itell them about my testimonies
  • 00:12:15.214 --> 00:12:19.118
  • of how I believe God,and they want what I have,
  • 00:12:19.151 --> 00:12:22.788
  • but they don'twanna do what I say do.
  • 00:12:22.822 --> 00:12:25.090
  • That blows my mind.
  • 00:12:25.124 --> 00:12:28.427
  • If they have a need, myneed is probably way bigger.
  • 00:12:28.460 --> 00:12:34.166
  • You understand what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:12:34.200 --> 00:12:35.768
  • You know, my needsare astronomical,
  • 00:12:35.801 --> 00:12:39.338
  • as far as where thisministry is concerned.
  • 00:12:39.371 --> 00:12:41.407
  • You know, I praise God for themillion dollars we took up for
  • 00:12:41.440 --> 00:12:43.976
  • renovations, but a milliondollars ain't no money, y'all.
  • 00:12:44.009 --> 00:12:47.179
  • You know, you gottaunderstand, a million dollars,
  • 00:12:47.213 --> 00:12:50.182
  • it's gonna get somerenovations done.
  • 00:12:50.216 --> 00:12:53.752
  • You know, somebodythinkin' that,
  • 00:12:53.786 --> 00:12:55.421
  • you know, a million dollars, wegonna build a whole new--that
  • 00:12:55.454 --> 00:12:58.958
  • don't cost no million dollars.
  • 00:12:58.991 --> 00:13:02.061
  • You know, you talkin'about the soft costs
  • 00:13:02.094 --> 00:13:03.429
  • and the stuff like that.
  • 00:13:03.462 --> 00:13:04.797
  • A million dollars--Chris,help me.
  • 00:13:04.830 --> 00:13:10.135
  • I mean, that was'bout what we did
  • 00:13:10.169 --> 00:13:11.904
  • just to grade the place and--
  • 00:13:11.937 --> 00:13:13.672
  • Chris: It was more than that.
  • 00:13:13.706 --> 00:13:15.007
  • Creflo: Yeah, it was morethan that just to move trees and
  • 00:13:15.040 --> 00:13:17.776
  • get it ready to build somethin'.
  • 00:13:17.810 --> 00:13:20.913
  • And this roof wasover--just the roof was a
  • 00:13:20.946 --> 00:13:26.051
  • couple million, $2 million.
  • 00:13:26.085 --> 00:13:29.188
  • And I'm just sayin', you talkin'about you need a thousand
  • 00:13:29.221 --> 00:13:38.130
  • dollars right quick, and ona weekly basis, I may need half
  • 00:13:38.163 --> 00:13:44.837
  • a million, a million dollarsjust for operatin' costs.
  • 00:13:44.870 --> 00:13:48.507
  • If I let that get to me,it'll mess--I won't be
  • 00:13:48.540 --> 00:13:52.011
  • no good for nothin'.
  • 00:13:52.044 --> 00:13:54.146
  • I won't be no good for nothin'.
  • 00:13:54.179 --> 00:13:56.215
  • But what I have todo is what I teach.
  • 00:13:56.248 --> 00:13:58.317
  • God's there, we donedid all we can do today.
  • 00:13:58.350 --> 00:14:01.353
  • Tomorrow's comin', hallelujah.
  • 00:14:01.387 --> 00:14:05.224
  • Do what we do teach people.
  • 00:14:05.257 --> 00:14:07.026
  • Sow a seed and believe God.
  • 00:14:07.059 --> 00:14:10.562
  • And that's whatwe've been doin'.
  • 00:14:10.596 --> 00:14:11.931
  • Sow a seed and believe God.
  • 00:14:11.964 --> 00:14:13.866
  • And you know what?
  • 00:14:13.899 --> 00:14:15.200
  • We've never had,like, these, like,
  • 00:14:15.234 --> 00:14:16.535
  • gigantic, miraculousmanifestations,
  • 00:14:16.568 --> 00:14:19.138
  • but we alwayslanded on our feet.
  • 00:14:19.171 --> 00:14:22.474
  • Just believe God, and youalways land on your feet.
  • 00:14:22.508 --> 00:14:24.810
  • Other than that, I would be--I'dbe messed up by now.
  • 00:14:24.843 --> 00:14:28.614
  • I wouldn't even beable to talk to nobody.
  • 00:14:28.647 --> 00:14:29.949
  • "Pastor, how you doin'?"
  • 00:14:29.982 --> 00:14:31.283
  • "Baby, don't mess with menow, I'm thinkin'.
  • 00:14:31.317 --> 00:14:33.786
  • Need more money.
  • 00:14:33.819 --> 00:14:35.120
  • Need a million dollars by3 o'clock, oh, Jesus.
  • 00:14:35.154 --> 00:14:38.724
  • They gonna cut that off.They gonna take this."
  • 00:14:38.757 --> 00:14:41.593
  • My attitude nowis, "God's there.
  • 00:14:41.627 --> 00:14:43.128
  • God is for me.Who can be against me?
  • 00:14:43.162 --> 00:14:45.798
  • It'll be all right.It'll be all right."
  • 00:14:45.831 --> 00:14:48.367
  • It's been all right all these,what is this, 32 years here?
  • 00:14:48.400 --> 00:14:51.570
  • In 32 years, yes, it'salways been all right.
  • 00:14:51.603 --> 00:14:58.444
  • And if it's somethin' comeup where you can't get it or
  • 00:15:01.780 --> 00:15:05.617
  • can't--maybe you didn'tneed it in the first place.
  • 00:15:05.651 --> 00:15:09.555
  • Maybe--"Well, I lost the new car."
  • 00:15:09.588 --> 00:15:11.256
  • Maybe you didn'tneed the new car.
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:13.959
  • Don't buy a newcar that hurt ya.
  • 00:15:13.993 --> 00:15:18.764
  • New car, what'syour note for the car?
  • 00:15:18.797 --> 00:15:20.466
  • That's $1.200, that hurt.
  • 00:15:20.499 --> 00:15:26.372
  • Take that car back andget out of that pain.
  • 00:15:26.405 --> 00:15:29.775
  • Somebody said, "Well, theyain't gonna take it back."
  • 00:15:29.808 --> 00:15:31.543
  • I said, "What'd you do?"he said, "I drove it
  • 00:15:31.577 --> 00:15:32.878
  • up there and left itin front of the gate."
  • 00:15:32.911 --> 00:15:34.580
  • I don't knowhow that story came out,
  • 00:15:38.417 --> 00:15:39.785
  • but he said, "It ain'tin my hand no more."
  • 00:15:39.818 --> 00:15:45.958
  • So, we talk aboutsupernatural peace here.
  • 00:15:45.991 --> 00:15:48.060
  • Your circumstances is not anexcuse for being defeated.
  • 00:15:48.093 --> 00:15:52.731
  • Your circumstanceswill not be an excuse
  • 00:15:52.765 --> 00:15:54.933
  • for you being depressed.
  • 00:15:54.967 --> 00:15:56.869
  • Your circumstances willnot be an excuse for
  • 00:15:56.902 --> 00:15:59.338
  • you to be helpless or hopeless.
  • 00:15:59.371 --> 00:16:02.107
  • Let me say that again.
  • 00:16:02.141 --> 00:16:03.442
  • Your circumstances and the stuffthat you go through in life,
  • 00:16:03.475 --> 00:16:06.178
  • that's not an excuse foryou to be depressed, why?
  • 00:16:06.211 --> 00:16:10.215
  • 'Cause you haveauthority over how you feel.
  • 00:16:10.249 --> 00:16:13.252
  • Your circumstancesis not an excuse
  • 00:16:13.285 --> 00:16:14.686
  • for you to be defeated, why?
  • 00:16:14.720 --> 00:16:16.755
  • You have authorityover how you feel.
  • 00:16:16.789 --> 00:16:18.924
  • It's not an excuseto be helpless.
  • 00:16:18.957 --> 00:16:20.993
  • It's not anexcuse to be hopeless.
  • 00:16:21.026 --> 00:16:23.862
  • Why?You have authority.
  • 00:16:23.896 --> 00:16:25.197
  • In other words, you cando somethin' about that.
  • 00:16:25.230 --> 00:16:27.499
  • Now here's what I wantedto get to today, and I think
  • 00:16:27.533 --> 00:16:30.402
  • I have time to do this.
  • 00:16:30.436 --> 00:16:32.137
  • Go to James chapter 1:13.
  • 00:16:32.171 --> 00:16:34.940
  • What's then thesource of temptation?
  • 00:16:34.973 --> 00:16:38.210
  • James chapter 1, and verse 13.
  • 00:16:38.243 --> 00:16:41.880
  • Now, as I begin toteach this, this is
  • 00:16:41.914 --> 00:16:48.387
  • somethin' that's pretty radical.
  • 00:16:48.420 --> 00:16:51.690
  • James 1:13: "Let no man say,when he is tempted," tested or
  • 00:16:51.723 --> 00:16:55.627
  • tried, "'I'm tempted of God':God cannot be tempted with evil,
  • 00:16:55.661 --> 00:17:01.533
  • neither tempteth he any man."
  • 00:17:01.567 --> 00:17:05.237
  • So one of the first steps toovercome negative emotions is to
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:10.909
  • say, "Father, it's not yourwill that I be this way."
  • 00:17:10.943 --> 00:17:18.584
  • Say it: "Father, it's notyour will that I be this way."
  • 00:17:18.617 --> 00:17:24.523
  • That's the first thing.You see right?
  • 00:17:24.556 --> 00:17:26.558
  • It's the first thing.
  • 00:17:26.592 --> 00:17:27.893
  • "It's not your willthat I be depressed.
  • 00:17:27.926 --> 00:17:29.795
  • It's not your willthat I be in grief.
  • 00:17:29.828 --> 00:17:31.797
  • It's not your willthat I be hopeless.
  • 00:17:31.830 --> 00:17:33.932
  • That's not your will."
  • 00:17:33.966 --> 00:17:35.267
  • God is not the one whomakes people depressed.
  • 00:17:35.300 --> 00:17:38.237
  • God is not the onewho discourages people.
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:40.706
  • He's not the one tomake people angry,
  • 00:17:40.739 --> 00:17:43.008
  • and he's not the oneto make people bitter.
  • 00:17:43.041 --> 00:17:46.111
  • That's not God'swill for your life.
  • 00:17:46.145 --> 00:17:48.080
  • "God cannot betempted with evil,
  • 00:17:48.113 --> 00:17:50.082
  • neither tempteth he any man."
  • 00:17:50.115 --> 00:17:53.485
  • That's not God.
  • 00:17:53.519 --> 00:17:55.053
  • That's your emotions thatyou're not takin' charge over.
  • 00:17:55.087 --> 00:17:58.790
  • Now, what causes this?
  • 00:17:58.824 --> 00:18:00.125
  • Look at the next verse,James chapter 1, verse 14:
  • 00:18:00.159 --> 00:18:02.828
  • "But every man istempted," tested or tried,
  • 00:18:02.861 --> 00:18:06.064
  • "when he is drawnaway," watch this,
  • 00:18:06.098 --> 00:18:09.434
  • "of his own lust,and he's enticed."
  • 00:18:09.468 --> 00:18:14.006
  • "Every man is tempted,"pressured, tried, "when he
  • 00:18:14.039 --> 00:18:18.877
  • is drawn away of his ownlust, and enticed."
  • 00:18:18.911 --> 00:18:24.516
  • Now, he said, "Every man."
  • 00:18:24.550 --> 00:18:25.851
  • Everybody say, "Every man."
  • 00:18:25.884 --> 00:18:27.586
  • That means thereis no exception.
  • 00:18:27.619 --> 00:18:31.290
  • Every man includin' allmankind, includin' every
  • 00:18:31.323 --> 00:18:35.327
  • man and every woman.
  • 00:18:35.360 --> 00:18:37.629
  • The Scripture saysthat, "He is enticed,
  • 00:18:37.663 --> 00:18:42.034
  • or he's drawn awayby his own lust."
  • 00:18:42.067 --> 00:18:45.103
  • Now, zero-in onthis word "lust."
  • 00:18:45.137 --> 00:18:48.173
  • We usually look at this word"lust" as dealin' with some kind
  • 00:18:48.207 --> 00:18:51.443
  • of sexual desire or we look atthis "lust" as dealin' with some
  • 00:18:51.476 --> 00:18:58.283
  • type of sexual perversion.
  • 00:18:58.317 --> 00:19:02.321
  • Now, even though it appliesin this situation, and it would
  • 00:19:02.354 --> 00:19:05.190
  • be true just what we read it,I want you to know tonight
  • 00:19:05.224 --> 00:19:09.962
  • that the word, this word,and I'm gonna prove it,
  • 00:19:09.995 --> 00:19:12.831
  • it literally refers toany type of strong emotion,
  • 00:19:12.864 --> 00:19:19.438
  • any type of strong emotion.
  • 00:19:19.471 --> 00:19:21.907
  • And I'ma look at threeScriptures to show you.
  • 00:19:21.940 --> 00:19:23.375
  • This is not like everytime you read "lust"
  • 00:19:23.408 --> 00:19:25.978
  • it's talkin' about sexual lust.
  • 00:19:26.011 --> 00:19:28.513
  • It's talkin' about, "But everyman is tempted when he is drawn
  • 00:19:28.547 --> 00:19:31.783
  • away of his ownstrong emotions."
  • 00:19:31.817 --> 00:19:38.323
  • He's drawn away byhis own strong emotion,
  • 00:19:38.357 --> 00:19:42.561
  • and then he'senticed because of that.
  • 00:19:42.594 --> 00:19:46.598
  • Now, let me show youwhat I'm talkin' about.
  • 00:19:46.632 --> 00:19:47.966
  • It's any type of strong emotion.
  • 00:19:48.000 --> 00:19:49.768
  • Look at James 4:5.
  • 00:19:49.801 --> 00:19:53.872
  • "Lust" is used in apositive sense here.
  • 00:19:53.905 --> 00:19:57.609
  • In James chapter 4:5, he says:"Do you think that the Scripture
  • 00:19:57.643 --> 00:20:02.614
  • sayeth in vain, 'TheSpirit that dwelleth
  • 00:20:02.648 --> 00:20:05.017
  • in us lusteth to envy?'"
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:08.854
  • A'ight, so, you know theHoly Spirit's not havin'
  • 00:20:08.887 --> 00:20:11.757
  • some sexual perverted desire.
  • 00:20:11.790 --> 00:20:16.061
  • So what is hetalkin' about here?
  • 00:20:16.094 --> 00:20:18.363
  • Where it says, "The Spirit thatdwelleth in us lusteth to envy,"
  • 00:20:18.397 --> 00:20:24.069
  • this is not talking aboutthe same kind of
  • 00:20:24.102 --> 00:20:26.238
  • perversion of our nature.
  • 00:20:26.271 --> 00:20:28.006
  • It's talking about the HolySpirit within us longs for us
  • 00:20:28.040 --> 00:20:33.011
  • jealously, that helongs for us jealously.
  • 00:20:33.045 --> 00:20:37.049
  • Let me read this inthe Amplified Bible.
  • 00:20:37.082 --> 00:20:39.451
  • The Amplified Bible says:"The Spirit whom he as caused
  • 00:20:39.484 --> 00:20:42.721
  • to dwell in us," it usesthe word, "yearns."
  • 00:20:42.754 --> 00:20:46.458
  • When you yearn for something,you have a strong desire for it.
  • 00:20:46.491 --> 00:20:50.395
  • He says that, "It yearns overus, he yearns for the Spirit [to
  • 00:20:50.429 --> 00:20:55.400
  • be welcome] witha jealous love?"
  • 00:20:55.434 --> 00:20:58.670
  • So, here, this isa strong emotion.
  • 00:20:58.704 --> 00:21:01.973
  • Here, this is not asexual perversion.
  • 00:21:02.007 --> 00:21:04.676
  • It's a strong emotion.
  • 00:21:04.710 --> 00:21:06.912
  • You also look in Exoduschapter 20, and verse 5,
  • 00:21:06.945 --> 00:21:11.283
  • it tells us that: "Godis a jealous God."
  • 00:21:11.316 --> 00:21:13.685
  • That's an emotion.Now, look at Galatians 5.
  • 00:21:13.719 --> 00:21:16.555
  • Well, just write this down,Galatians 5:17,
  • 00:21:16.588 --> 00:21:19.057
  • we're told that, "The flushlusts against the spirit,
  • 00:21:19.091 --> 00:21:23.295
  • and the spiritagainst the flesh."
  • 00:21:23.328 --> 00:21:26.698
  • In other words, it has a strongtype of emotion or desire for.
  • 00:21:26.732 --> 00:21:32.237
  • So, all of these Scripturesin these verses are talking
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:35.073
  • about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:35.107 --> 00:21:36.408
  • So, "lust" doesn't have torefer to the same type of sexual
  • 00:21:36.441 --> 00:21:40.645
  • desire that the churchhas taught all these years.
  • 00:21:40.679 --> 00:21:44.583
  • It can refer to anystrong, overwhelming
  • 00:21:44.616 --> 00:21:48.787
  • emotion, positive or negative.
  • 00:21:48.820 --> 00:21:52.591
  • Any strong, overwhelmingemotion, positive or negative.
  • 00:21:52.624 --> 00:21:58.330
  • Now with that in mind, let'slook back at James chapter 1
  • 00:21:58.997 --> 00:22:02.601
  • and 15.
  • 00:22:02.634 --> 00:22:04.603
  • James chapter 1.
  • 00:22:04.636 --> 00:22:07.072
  • Let's look at 14 and read 14through 15, James 1:14
  • 00:22:07.105 --> 00:22:10.742
  • through 15.
  • 00:22:10.776 --> 00:22:12.144
  • So now I want you to lookat this word lust as any type
  • 00:22:12.177 --> 00:22:16.548
  • of strong emotion, a strongpositive emotion, or it can also
  • 00:22:16.581 --> 00:22:21.887
  • be a strong negative emotion.
  • 00:22:21.920 --> 00:22:25.023
  • He says, "But every man istempted when he is drawn away."
  • 00:22:25.056 --> 00:22:28.994
  • Notice when you're tempted.
  • 00:22:29.027 --> 00:22:30.996
  • You're tempted by thosestrong emotions.
  • 00:22:31.029 --> 00:22:34.900
  • Notice how the temptation,tests, and trial comes.
  • 00:22:34.933 --> 00:22:37.569
  • It starts off with thosestrong emotions.
  • 00:22:37.602 --> 00:22:42.207
  • He says and then he's enticed.
  • 00:22:42.240 --> 00:22:44.709
  • So your strong emotion comesand then you're enticed.
  • 00:22:44.743 --> 00:22:48.013
  • Strong emotions, thenyou're enticed.
  • 00:22:48.046 --> 00:22:51.283
  • Now look at verse 15.
  • 00:22:51.316 --> 00:22:53.385
  • Then when those strong emotionshave conceived and see you can
  • 00:22:53.418 --> 00:22:59.257
  • see here that sin is conceivedin strong emotions.
  • 00:22:59.291 --> 00:23:02.060
  • When the strong emotions areconceived, it bringeth
  • 00:23:02.093 --> 00:23:04.896
  • forth sin.
  • 00:23:04.930 --> 00:23:06.231
  • So sin is conceived in thosestrong emotions.
  • 00:23:06.264 --> 00:23:09.434
  • You get angry, you get angry,get angry, then you hit.
  • 00:23:09.468 --> 00:23:12.838
  • Well, where did conceptions comefrom the hit somebody?
  • 00:23:12.871 --> 00:23:15.474
  • In those strong emotions thatyou didn't take authority
  • 00:23:15.507 --> 00:23:17.943
  • over because you didn't thinkyou had a choice.
  • 00:23:17.976 --> 00:23:21.446
  • And so he says then when lusthas conceived it bringeth forth
  • 00:23:21.480 --> 00:23:24.416
  • sin and then sin, when it'sfinished, it bringeth
  • 00:23:24.449 --> 00:23:27.352
  • forth death.
  • 00:23:27.385 --> 00:23:28.687
  • So it's through lust or it'sthrough strong emotions that
  • 00:23:28.720 --> 00:23:32.257
  • a person is tempted and drawnaway into sin through strong
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:36.528
  • emotions that the temptationfor sin happens in
  • 00:23:36.561 --> 00:23:41.199
  • those emotions.
  • 00:23:41.233 --> 00:23:43.502
  • So sin is conceived in emotions.
  • 00:23:43.535 --> 00:23:47.439
  • Whoa.
  • 00:23:47.472 --> 00:23:49.107
  • All of the sin you ever do isconceived in your emotion.
  • 00:23:49.140 --> 00:23:52.644
  • Negative or positive.
  • 00:23:52.677 --> 00:23:54.179
  • Every sin you've ever committedis conceived in your
  • 00:23:54.212 --> 00:23:57.349
  • emotions first.
  • 00:23:57.382 --> 00:24:00.185
  • What would happen if we startseeing that as the beginning
  • 00:24:00.218 --> 00:24:03.021
  • part and deal with the emotionswe're no longer casual with.
  • 00:24:03.054 --> 00:24:06.892
  • "Well, I'm just not gonnadeal with emotion.
  • 00:24:06.925 --> 00:24:08.527
  • It's just an emotion."
  • 00:24:08.560 --> 00:24:09.861
  • And you just walk around with itand while you're walking
  • 00:24:09.895 --> 00:24:12.264
  • with it, you're considering itand you're entertaining
  • 00:24:12.297 --> 00:24:14.766
  • it and you won't cast it down,
  • 00:24:14.799 --> 00:24:16.968
  • you won't take authority,you won't do nothing with it.
  • 00:24:17.002 --> 00:24:19.304
  • It's doing more with you thanwhat you're doing with it.
  • 00:24:19.337 --> 00:24:22.474
  • So we've got generations ofchurch people who've never
  • 00:24:22.507 --> 00:24:26.711
  • understood why they keepdoing the same thing, why?
  • 00:24:26.745 --> 00:24:30.448
  • Because they thought thatemotions were just a response to
  • 00:24:30.482 --> 00:24:33.118
  • the--a corresponding response toa circumstance in a situation.
  • 00:24:33.151 --> 00:24:37.756
  • So I can't control it.
  • 00:24:37.789 --> 00:24:39.324
  • It's not my choice,it just happens.
  • 00:24:39.357 --> 00:24:42.761
  • Yeah, boy, I knew itwas gonna get silent
  • 00:24:42.794 --> 00:24:44.863
  • in this place tonight.
  • 00:24:44.896 --> 00:24:46.698
  • Silent.
  • 00:24:46.731 --> 00:24:49.100
  • Oh my God.
  • 00:24:53.572 --> 00:24:55.040
  • Now we do this and we knowthis--know to do this what
  • 00:24:55.073 --> 00:24:59.611
  • I just talked about, we knowto do this with thoughts.
  • 00:24:59.644 --> 00:25:03.248
  • We know in 2 Corinthians 10:5we cast down our thoughts.
  • 00:25:03.281 --> 00:25:06.618
  • I'm asking you to do the samething with your emotions.
  • 00:25:06.651 --> 00:25:10.855
  • We know that when we havethese negative thoughts,
  • 00:25:10.889 --> 00:25:13.124
  • cast your thoughts down.
  • 00:25:13.158 --> 00:25:14.893
  • And the great thing aboutcasting the thoughts down is
  • 00:25:14.926 --> 00:25:18.029
  • that we can kind of get ahead ofour emotions, but sometimes
  • 00:25:18.063 --> 00:25:21.533
  • we'll cast a thought down inour head and we'll still
  • 00:25:21.566 --> 00:25:24.469
  • be emotionalabout something.
  • 00:25:24.502 --> 00:25:27.238
