  • Creflo: Now, emotions weregiven to us for our enjoyment.
  • 00:01:40.580 --> 00:01:44.384
  • Emotions were given, and theyare meant for our enjoyment.
  • 00:01:44.417 --> 00:01:49.589
  • We were created inGod's image and
  • 00:01:49.622 --> 00:01:51.991
  • part of that likenessof God is emotions.
  • 00:01:52.025 --> 00:01:56.796
  • You know, God is agod who has emotions.
  • 00:01:56.829 --> 00:01:59.566
  • It's all through the Bibleand as we were created
  • 00:01:59.599 --> 00:02:03.236
  • in God's image--Genesis 1:31.
  • 00:02:03.269 --> 00:02:06.072
  • Go there.Genesis 1:31.
  • 00:02:06.105 --> 00:02:07.807
  • We're created in God's image.
  • 00:02:07.840 --> 00:02:10.009
  • Look at what Genesis 1:31has to say about his creation.
  • 00:02:10.043 --> 00:02:13.680
  • He said, "And God saweverything that he had made,"
  • 00:02:13.713 --> 00:02:17.450
  • that includes us, "and,behold, it was very good.
  • 00:02:17.483 --> 00:02:20.453
  • And the evening and themorning were the sixth day,"
  • 00:02:20.486 --> 00:02:23.189
  • so everything that Godmade was very good.
  • 00:02:23.223 --> 00:02:25.992
  • He made everything in hisimage, which means also where
  • 00:02:26.025 --> 00:02:28.828
  • his--where emotionsare concerned,
  • 00:02:28.861 --> 00:02:31.164
  • so emotions werecreated to be good.
  • 00:02:31.197 --> 00:02:34.334
  • If everything thatGod created was good,
  • 00:02:34.367 --> 00:02:36.703
  • then those emotions that wehave been given by God in the
  • 00:02:36.736 --> 00:02:40.740
  • likeness ofGod--think of that now.
  • 00:02:40.773 --> 00:02:43.576
  • We've been given emotionsin the likeness of God.
  • 00:02:43.610 --> 00:02:45.979
  • These emotions are good.
  • 00:02:46.012 --> 00:02:48.514
  • They were given tous to--for enjoyment.
  • 00:02:48.548 --> 00:02:53.186
  • Now, we've got to findhope for emotional stability.
  • 00:02:53.219 --> 00:02:58.591
  • That's the key.The emotions are good.
  • 00:02:58.625 --> 00:03:01.027
  • They were designed to be good,designed for our enjoyment.
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:03.997
  • In a moment we're gonna switchover and show you why they're
  • 00:03:04.030 --> 00:03:07.200
  • not so good in a lot of places,but one of the things that we
  • 00:03:07.233 --> 00:03:10.970
  • see very clearly in the church,we see the difference between
  • 00:03:11.004 --> 00:03:14.173
  • people trying tocope with emotions,
  • 00:03:14.207 --> 00:03:16.376
  • the church teaching peopleto cope with depression,
  • 00:03:16.409 --> 00:03:19.312
  • cope with thesedifferent feelings,
  • 00:03:19.345 --> 00:03:21.848
  • and not teaching them howto control these emotions.
  • 00:03:21.881 --> 00:03:26.552
  • We're part of the reason whya lot of people in the church
  • 00:03:26.586 --> 00:03:31.524
  • don't think you cancontrol your emotions.
  • 00:03:31.557 --> 00:03:33.326
  • You know, as a former therapist,I--we used to teach you to cope
  • 00:03:33.359 --> 00:03:37.497
  • with certain things and evenentering into the ministry
  • 00:03:37.530 --> 00:03:41.034
  • teaching people how tocope with certain things.
  • 00:03:41.067 --> 00:03:43.369
  • No, no, no, we wannamove from coping
  • 00:03:43.403 --> 00:03:46.272
  • to controlling these things.
  • 00:03:46.306 --> 00:03:49.309
  • If God gave you these emotionsand these emotions are a very
  • 00:03:49.342 --> 00:03:53.613
  • duplication of God himselfand emotions he possess,
  • 00:03:53.646 --> 00:03:58.551
  • he wants us to control them, tohave authority over our emotions
  • 00:03:58.584 --> 00:04:03.723
  • and not just to copewith our emotions.
  • 00:04:03.756 --> 00:04:05.758
  • You know, if I were to havepeople to stand up on a Sunday
  • 00:04:05.792 --> 00:04:09.829
  • morning and ask the question,"How many of you here today have
  • 00:04:09.862 --> 00:04:13.833
  • dealt with or aredealing with depression
  • 00:04:13.866 --> 00:04:17.170
  • and you needprayer for that?"
  • 00:04:17.203 --> 00:04:19.005
  • you might find 80%, 85%, 90%of the church would stand up
  • 00:04:19.038 --> 00:04:22.642
  • dealing with that situation.
  • 00:04:22.675 --> 00:04:25.445
  • But, you know, that's not kindabrought up in church and what we
  • 00:04:25.478 --> 00:04:28.748
  • need to understand is thatmental and emotional health is a
  • 00:04:28.781 --> 00:04:32.485
  • part of what Jesuscame to bring us.
  • 00:04:32.518 --> 00:04:35.321
  • A part of what Jesus came todeal with us on the cross and
  • 00:04:35.355 --> 00:04:39.125
  • shed his blood is so we can havemental and emotional health.
  • 00:04:39.158 --> 00:04:43.796
  • And look at oursociety right now.
  • 00:04:43.830 --> 00:04:45.732
  • I mean, look at a lot ofthings that are going on.
  • 00:04:45.765 --> 00:04:48.167
  • A lot of things--we have amental health issue in our
  • 00:04:48.201 --> 00:04:51.237
  • country today and,you know, the church should be
  • 00:04:51.270 --> 00:04:55.108
  • the place wherewe're giving answers to that.
  • 00:04:55.141 --> 00:04:58.344
  • But why not?
  • 00:04:58.378 --> 00:04:59.679
  • Because you got a lot of mentalhealth issues in the pulpit,
  • 00:04:59.712 --> 00:05:01.881
  • and you got mental health andemotional issues in the church,
  • 00:05:01.914 --> 00:05:04.617
  • and if we don't start talkingabout it there won't be faith
  • 00:05:04.650 --> 00:05:08.588
  • to begin to deal with that.
  • 00:05:08.621 --> 00:05:11.023
  • But look at what he saysin Isaiah 26 and verse 3,
  • 00:05:11.057 --> 00:05:12.992
  • you know, speaking of thisfact that it is the will of God.
  • 00:05:13.025 --> 00:05:16.829
  • Jesus came to bring usemotional and mental health.
  • 00:05:16.863 --> 00:05:21.768
  • That's a part of it.
  • 00:05:21.801 --> 00:05:23.136
  • We preached about Jesus makingus healthy in our physical
  • 00:05:23.169 --> 00:05:26.806
  • bodies, okay, and we're talkingabout prospering in our soul.
  • 00:05:26.839 --> 00:05:30.943
  • Now we're talking aboutbeing healthy in our emotions.
  • 00:05:30.977 --> 00:05:33.813
  • Isaiah 26:3, and he says,"Thou will keep him--"
  • 00:05:33.846 --> 00:05:36.549
  • Listen to what he says.
  • 00:05:36.582 --> 00:05:38.684
  • "Thou will keep himin perfect peace,
  • 00:05:38.718 --> 00:05:40.853
  • whose mind is stayed on thee:because he trusteth in thee."
  • 00:05:40.887 --> 00:05:45.858
  • Well, peace is anemotion, isn't it?
  • 00:05:45.892 --> 00:05:47.827
  • And you can live in astate of emotional peace.
  • 00:05:47.860 --> 00:05:51.764
  • Notice the Scripture says, "I'llkeep you in perfect peace."
  • 00:05:51.798 --> 00:05:54.767
  • That's just--that'shopeful right there.
  • 00:05:54.801 --> 00:05:57.103
  • That just lets you know thatthere is a way through God for
  • 00:05:57.136 --> 00:06:00.807
  • us to enter into astate of perfect peace.
  • 00:06:00.840 --> 00:06:05.745
  • Say out loud.
  • 00:06:05.778 --> 00:06:07.914
  • Say, "I receivestability in my emotions,
  • 00:06:07.947 --> 00:06:13.786
  • and I receive perfect peace."
  • 00:06:13.820 --> 00:06:16.689
  • Now, he tells ushere how to do that.
  • 00:06:16.722 --> 00:06:18.491
  • "Thou keep him in perfectpeace," he says wherever
  • 00:06:18.524 --> 00:06:21.127
  • your mind is stayed.
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:22.462
  • That's gonna be big tonight.
  • 00:06:22.495 --> 00:06:23.796
  • Wherever yourmind, your thoughts,
  • 00:06:23.830 --> 00:06:25.231
  • or emotions, all of that isgonna determine where your
  • 00:06:25.264 --> 00:06:28.167
  • emotions is gonna be.
  • 00:06:28.201 --> 00:06:29.502
  • What are your thoughts?
  • 00:06:29.535 --> 00:06:30.837
  • If your mind is on Jesus,your mind is on the Word of God,
  • 00:06:30.870 --> 00:06:33.406
  • then, you know, you're gonna beable to govern those thoughts.
  • 00:06:33.439 --> 00:06:37.977
  • Now, I wanna showyou something now,
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:40.112
  • just a little foundation.
  • 00:06:40.146 --> 00:06:41.447
  • I wanna show you something thatwe're gonna deal with tonight.
  • 00:06:41.481 --> 00:06:43.416
  • It was quite fascinatingto me when I saw this,
  • 00:06:43.449 --> 00:06:45.918
  • but let's go to Deuteronomychapter 28 and, again,
  • 00:06:45.952 --> 00:06:50.490
  • we're dealing with this issueof can I really control my
  • 00:06:50.523 --> 00:06:53.259
  • emotions or are they--or areemotions just a response to
  • 00:06:53.292 --> 00:06:59.565
  • negative situations and Idon't have--I can't control it?
  • 00:06:59.599 --> 00:07:04.103
  • You know, do I now have achoice in deciding what kind
  • 00:07:04.136 --> 00:07:08.574
  • of emotions are in my life?
  • 00:07:08.608 --> 00:07:10.176
  • Well, look at this.
  • 00:07:10.209 --> 00:07:12.078
  • This is pretty fascinating.
  • 00:07:12.111 --> 00:07:13.412
  • In Deuteronomy chapter 28, hereit is a section where they're
  • 00:07:13.446 --> 00:07:18.684
  • talking about how Godwould judge sin and,
  • 00:07:18.718 --> 00:07:23.823
  • you know, thethings that he would do,
  • 00:07:23.856 --> 00:07:25.858
  • and in Deuteronomy 28,verse 40--let's go start
  • 00:07:25.892 --> 00:07:31.063
  • at verse 46 through 48.
  • 00:07:31.097 --> 00:07:33.232
  • Deuteronomy 28.Actually, let's look at 45.
  • 00:07:33.266 --> 00:07:35.968
  • Deuteronomy 28:45 andlet's go through 48.
  • 00:07:36.002 --> 00:07:39.839
  • Now, listen to this carefully.
  • 00:07:39.872 --> 00:07:41.173
  • He says, "Moreover all thesecurses shall come upon thee,
  • 00:07:41.207 --> 00:07:43.876
  • and shall pursue thee, andthey're gonna overtake thee,
  • 00:07:43.910 --> 00:07:46.913
  • till thou be destroyed; becausethou hearkenedst not unto the
  • 00:07:46.946 --> 00:07:51.617
  • voice of the Lord thy God, tokeep his commandments and
  • 00:07:51.651 --> 00:07:55.354
  • his statutes whichhe commanded."
  • 00:07:55.388 --> 00:07:58.658
  • Now, listen to this now.
  • 00:07:58.691 --> 00:08:00.326
  • In the old covenantGod judged sin harshly.
  • 00:08:00.359 --> 00:08:04.230
  • He judged sin harshly, but inthe new covenant our judgment
  • 00:08:04.263 --> 00:08:10.036
  • has been placedupon Jesus Christ,
  • 00:08:10.069 --> 00:08:11.871
  • so even though your behavior isnot always right the judgment
  • 00:08:11.904 --> 00:08:14.440
  • comes on Jesus Christ.
  • 00:08:14.473 --> 00:08:16.909
  • You have to get that.
  • 00:08:16.943 --> 00:08:18.244
  • God's not judging your sinsharshly today like he did in
  • 00:08:18.277 --> 00:08:22.882
  • the Old Testament, why?
  • 00:08:22.915 --> 00:08:24.216
  • Because Jesus has beenjudged for all of our sins.
  • 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:28.020
  • That's a powerful thing.
  • 00:08:28.054 --> 00:08:29.355
  • That's somethingto say, "Thank you, Lord," amen?
  • 00:08:29.388 --> 00:08:31.257
  • So, we still benefit in seeingwhat the Lord judged as a wrong
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:37.063
  • type of conduct, so this isgonna kinda catch you
  • 00:08:37.096 --> 00:08:39.732
  • off guard a little bit.
  • 00:08:39.765 --> 00:08:41.067
  • This is amazing.Look at verse 46 now.
  • 00:08:41.100 --> 00:08:43.235
  • So, we know he judges sin, he'sin the old covenant now and he's
  • 00:08:43.269 --> 00:08:47.340
  • judging sin, and let's checkout what he's about to judge.
  • 00:08:47.373 --> 00:08:50.276
  • Deuteronomy 28:46 he says,"And they shall be upon thee
  • 00:08:50.309 --> 00:08:55.548
  • for a sign and for a wonder,and upon thy seed forever."
  • 00:08:55.581 --> 00:08:58.918
  • Forty-seven, "Because thouservedst not the Lord thy God
  • 00:08:58.951 --> 00:09:05.024
  • with joyfulness, andwith gladness of heart,
  • 00:09:05.057 --> 00:09:09.095
  • for the abundanceof all things."
  • 00:09:09.128 --> 00:09:13.599
  • How many of you knowjoyfulness is an emotion?
  • 00:09:13.633 --> 00:09:16.302
  • Gladness is an emotion.
  • 00:09:16.335 --> 00:09:18.504
  • He's getting ready to judge thembecause they didn't serve him
  • 00:09:18.537 --> 00:09:23.943
  • with the emotion ofgladness and joy for all
  • 00:09:23.976 --> 00:09:27.847
  • the things that he's done.
  • 00:09:27.880 --> 00:09:29.582
  • Wow!Look at the next verse.
  • 00:09:29.615 --> 00:09:32.284
  • He says, "Therefore shall thouserve thine enemy which the Lord
  • 00:09:32.318 --> 00:09:36.889
  • shall send againstthee, in hunger,
  • 00:09:36.922 --> 00:09:38.991
  • in thirst, in nakedness, in wantof all things: and he shall put
  • 00:09:39.025 --> 00:09:43.896
  • a yoke of iron upon thy neck,until he have destroyed thee."
  • 00:09:43.929 --> 00:09:48.868
  • And notice he is judging thembecause they did not serve God
  • 00:09:48.901 --> 00:09:54.306
  • with joyfulness and gladness ofheart for the abundance of all
  • 00:09:54.340 --> 00:09:58.077
  • things that he had given them.
  • 00:09:58.110 --> 00:10:00.746
  • He's judging them becausethey didn't respond correctly
  • 00:10:00.780 --> 00:10:05.017
  • in their emotions.
  • 00:10:05.051 --> 00:10:07.319
  • Now think aboutthis for a moment.
  • 00:10:07.353 --> 00:10:09.455
  • He's coming before theseguys, and he's saying, "Listen."
  • 00:10:09.488 --> 00:10:15.094
  • You know, most people look atemotions as being like optional.
  • 00:10:15.127 --> 00:10:19.532
  • They look at it asjust like, you know,
  • 00:10:19.565 --> 00:10:22.101
  • it's just somethingthat happens.
  • 00:10:22.134 --> 00:10:24.537
  • I wanna take you downa little progression.
  • 00:10:24.570 --> 00:10:27.940
  • I want you to think about it.
  • 00:10:27.973 --> 00:10:30.209
  • If bad circumstanceswill show up in your life,
  • 00:10:30.242 --> 00:10:32.311
  • most people believe that ifsomething negative happens,
  • 00:10:32.344 --> 00:10:34.547
  • there must be a negativeemotion to correspond with
  • 00:10:34.580 --> 00:10:39.585
  • that negative circumstance.
  • 00:10:39.618 --> 00:10:41.120
  • That's what most people think.
  • 00:10:41.153 --> 00:10:42.521
  • Something negative happens,then a negative emotion must
  • 00:10:42.555 --> 00:10:44.657
  • correspond with thatnegative circumstance.
  • 00:10:44.690 --> 00:10:47.393
  • They see emotions as simply asa response and not a choice,
  • 00:10:47.426 --> 00:10:54.066
  • so a bad, negativecircumstance happen,
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:57.236
  • most people see,well, bad circumstance,
  • 00:10:57.269 --> 00:11:00.172
  • bad emotions, andthat's a response to the bad
  • 00:11:00.206 --> 00:11:03.509
  • circumstances, and theydon't see it as being a choice.
  • 00:11:03.542 --> 00:11:07.046
  • They don't see it as you canchoose how you feel even though
  • 00:11:07.079 --> 00:11:12.451
  • the circumstance is negative.
  • 00:11:12.485 --> 00:11:14.920
  • A negative circumstance doesnot necessarily mean you have to
  • 00:11:14.954 --> 00:11:19.458
  • have negative emotions tocorrespond with that negative
  • 00:11:19.492 --> 00:11:22.228
  • circumstance, butmost people think that,
  • 00:11:22.261 --> 00:11:24.930
  • so to them emotions arenot something they have any
  • 00:11:24.964 --> 00:11:28.868
  • authority or control over.
  • 00:11:28.901 --> 00:11:31.270
  • And that's truewith most people.
  • 00:11:31.303 --> 00:11:33.072
  • They don't think you haveauthority or control over
  • 00:11:33.105 --> 00:11:35.941
  • your emotions.
  • 00:11:35.975 --> 00:11:37.409
  • They feel like, well, you know,therefore they don't have any
  • 00:11:37.443 --> 00:11:41.313
  • responsibility for theiremotions and that's a lot
  • 00:11:41.347 --> 00:11:44.517
  • of people in the world today.
  • 00:11:44.550 --> 00:11:45.918
  • "I don't think I haveresponsibility for my emotions.
  • 00:11:45.951 --> 00:11:48.654
  • You don't understand.
  • 00:11:48.687 --> 00:11:50.055
  • The reason why I gotmad and shot them,
  • 00:11:50.089 --> 00:11:51.924
  • because they did that,so you just--you should
  • 00:11:51.957 --> 00:11:53.592
  • let me go free."
  • 00:11:53.626 --> 00:11:54.927
  • And they don't see themselvesas being responsible for it.
  • 00:11:54.960 --> 00:11:57.096
  • They see emotion,negative emotions,
  • 00:11:57.129 --> 00:11:58.764
  • as a response to thenegative circumstance,
  • 00:11:58.798 --> 00:12:01.300
  • and I am telling you it's achoice, not just a response.
  • 00:12:01.333 --> 00:12:05.437
  • It's a choice, and so whathappens in the current-day
  • 00:12:05.471 --> 00:12:09.275
  • thinking--here is thecurrent-day thinking.
  • 00:12:09.308 --> 00:12:12.411
  • Here is ourcurrent-day thinking,
  • 00:12:12.444 --> 00:12:13.946
  • and it is this: that emotionsare just something that happens.
  • 00:12:13.979 --> 00:12:19.418
  • Emotions are just something thathappens based on--it's based on
  • 00:12:19.451 --> 00:12:25.291
  • circumstance, butemotions just happen.
  • 00:12:25.324 --> 00:12:28.661
  • That is a gigantic deception.
  • 00:12:28.694 --> 00:12:31.864
  • You gotta get thatout of your head.
  • 00:12:31.897 --> 00:12:34.366
  • Emotions don't just happen.
  • 00:12:34.400 --> 00:12:36.769
  • You are a free moral agent, andyou can choose how you want your
  • 00:12:36.802 --> 00:12:45.711
  • emotions to be in themidst of a negative situation.
  • 00:12:45.744 --> 00:12:48.280
  • But as long as you think thatthe negative circumstance means
  • 00:12:48.314 --> 00:12:52.418
  • that you have to have a negativeemotion to correspond with it,
  • 00:12:52.451 --> 00:12:56.755
  • it will--it's gonna rule--nowonder the devil wants to use
  • 00:12:56.789 --> 00:13:00.626
  • emotions to take youwhere he wants you to go,
  • 00:13:00.659 --> 00:13:03.195
  • because you first of all don'tthink you have any authority,
  • 00:13:03.229 --> 00:13:08.100
  • or let me put it like this.
  • 00:13:08.133 --> 00:13:09.969
  • You don't think you have controlover how you feel, and you do.
  • 00:13:10.002 --> 00:13:16.242
  • You don't think you havecontrol over how you feel,
  • 00:13:16.275 --> 00:13:17.943
  • and you do havecontrol over how you feel.
  • 00:13:17.977 --> 00:13:20.646
  • And like I said before, mostpeople look at these emotions
  • 00:13:20.679 --> 00:13:25.084
  • as being optional, justsomething that happens,
  • 00:13:25.117 --> 00:13:29.555
  • and yet that cannot be true.
  • 00:13:29.588 --> 00:13:31.390
  • That cannot be truebecause of what we just read,
  • 00:13:31.423 --> 00:13:35.294
  • because if you didn't have anycontrol over your emotions and
  • 00:13:35.327 --> 00:13:40.232
  • if you didn't have anyauthority over your feelings,
  • 00:13:40.266 --> 00:13:42.801
  • then it would not be right forGod to judge these people of not
  • 00:13:42.835 --> 00:13:48.774
  • responding with the rightemotion if they didn't have
  • 00:13:48.807 --> 00:13:52.278
  • control over it.
  • 00:13:52.311 --> 00:13:53.746
  • For him to just--to judge themand to allow this curse to come
  • 00:13:53.779 --> 00:13:58.017
  • on them because they didn'trespond right emotionally,
  • 00:13:58.050 --> 00:14:02.855
  • because they didn't respondwith joy and gladness because
  • 00:14:02.888 --> 00:14:06.492
  • of what God has done.
  • 00:14:06.525 --> 00:14:07.826
  • Please realize something.
  • 00:14:07.860 --> 00:14:09.161
  • They were being cursedbecause they had the
  • 00:14:09.194 --> 00:14:11.730
  • wrong emotional response.
  • 00:14:11.764 --> 00:14:14.099
  • God was saying, "You're supposedto respond to me with joy and
  • 00:14:14.133 --> 00:14:15.935
  • gladness because of allthe good things that
  • 00:14:15.968 --> 00:14:17.770
  • I have done unto you."
  • 00:14:17.803 --> 00:14:19.405
  • And he says, "Becauseyou didn't do it," which
  • 00:14:19.438 --> 00:14:21.473
  • means that's a choice.
  • 00:14:21.507 --> 00:14:23.642
  • He's expecting for you tochoose to respond this way,
  • 00:14:23.676 --> 00:14:27.546
  • which means it's achoice, and he says,
  • 00:14:27.579 --> 00:14:29.882
  • "Because it is a choice and youdidn't choose to honor me with
  • 00:14:29.915 --> 00:14:34.787
  • your emotions the right way, Iam gonna judge you and curse
  • 00:14:34.820 --> 00:14:38.357
  • you for it."
  • 00:14:38.390 --> 00:14:40.025
  • Now, of course, he will not dothat under the new covenant,
  • 00:14:40.059 --> 00:14:42.127
  • but under the old covenantthey were judged and cursed.
  • 00:14:42.161 --> 00:14:45.364
  • You saw what happened to 'embecause they didn't respond to
  • 00:14:45.397 --> 00:14:48.467
  • God correctly emotionally, andI'm telling you because of just
  • 00:14:48.500 --> 00:14:51.770
  • this right here there is noway you can justify God cursing
  • 00:14:51.804 --> 00:14:58.243
  • these people if they didn't havea choice to choose the type of
  • 00:14:58.277 --> 00:15:02.614
  • emotion they were supposedto have regardless of the
  • 00:15:02.648 --> 00:15:05.451
  • circumstance that came.
  • 00:15:05.484 --> 00:15:07.686
  • So, before I go on, turn to yourneighbor and tell 'em to wake up
  • 00:15:07.720 --> 00:15:10.656
  • 'cause we going toget into this, man.
  • 00:15:10.689 --> 00:15:14.360
  • Amen, you got tostay up on this.
  • 00:15:14.393 --> 00:15:17.796
  • I can't be hollerin' andscreamin' at you, messin' my
  • 00:15:17.830 --> 00:15:19.398
  • voice up tryin' to keepyou awake.
  • 00:15:19.431 --> 00:15:22.701
  • God--
  • 00:15:22.735 --> 00:15:25.037
  • You cannot allow youremotions to control you.
  • 00:15:25.070 --> 00:15:31.643
  • You're supposed tocontrol your emotions,
  • 00:15:31.677 --> 00:15:34.880
  • but if you don't think you haveany control of your emotions,
  • 00:15:34.913 --> 00:15:36.682
  • guess what happens?
  • 00:15:36.715 --> 00:15:38.017
  • They end up controlling you,and you end up telling people,
  • 00:15:38.050 --> 00:15:41.053
  • "Well, my emotions--I didthis because that happened,
  • 00:15:41.086 --> 00:15:43.756
  • and so I felt this way."
  • 00:15:43.789 --> 00:15:45.491
  • You got--let me tell you thedevil will eat your lunch if you
  • 00:15:45.524 --> 00:15:50.095
  • do not come to the place ofrealizing that your emotions
  • 00:15:50.129 --> 00:15:53.665
  • are not just a responseto a negative situation.
  • 00:15:53.699 --> 00:15:58.437
  • Your emotions are somethingthat God gave you that you
  • 00:15:58.470 --> 00:16:02.574
  • have authority over.
  • 00:16:02.608 --> 00:16:05.077
  • Say out loud, "I haveauthority over how I feel."
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:09.081
  • Say out loud, "I cancontrol how I feel."
  • 00:16:09.114 --> 00:16:13.085
  • All right, look at this.
  • 00:16:13.118 --> 00:16:14.586
  • Go to John chapter 14and verse 1.
  • 00:16:14.620 --> 00:16:16.388
  • John chapter 14 and verse 1.
  • 00:16:16.422 --> 00:16:19.358
  • Look at what he says here.
  • 00:16:19.391 --> 00:16:21.393
  • You not having authorityover your emotions is a lie.
  • 00:16:24.630 --> 00:16:29.501
  • It's a lie.
  • 00:16:29.535 --> 00:16:32.571
  • Look what he says here, "Letnot your heart be troubled."
  • 00:16:32.604 --> 00:16:40.546
  • How are you even gonna tell methis if--unless you understand
  • 00:16:40.579 --> 00:16:44.183
  • that I have the power andauthority in the middle of
  • 00:16:44.216 --> 00:16:48.687
  • trouble to not be troubled.
  • 00:16:48.720 --> 00:16:51.356
  • "Let not your heart betroubled: you believe in God,
  • 00:16:51.390 --> 00:16:54.726
  • believe also in me."
  • 00:16:54.760 --> 00:16:57.229
  • So again, there is no wayGod would be justified in even
  • 00:16:57.262 --> 00:17:01.100
  • asking us to let notour heart be troubled.
  • 00:17:01.133 --> 00:17:03.402
  • See, here is Jesus gettingready to go to the cross.
  • 00:17:03.435 --> 00:17:05.637
  • He knows his disciples are gonnago through a lot of trouble,
  • 00:17:05.671 --> 00:17:09.241
  • and he begins to warn them.
  • 00:17:09.274 --> 00:17:11.376
  • He says, "Guys, you know,trouble is coming," and this
  • 00:17:11.410 --> 00:17:14.580
  • was not a suggestion.
  • 00:17:14.613 --> 00:17:16.348
  • This was a command.
  • 00:17:16.381 --> 00:17:17.816
  • "Let not your heart be trouble,"is what he was telling them.
  • 00:17:17.850 --> 00:17:21.053
  • It was a command.
  • 00:17:21.086 --> 00:17:22.421
  • How do you command somebodyto take authority over your
  • 00:17:22.454 --> 00:17:25.324
  • emotions if you did not havecontrol over your emotions?
  • 00:17:25.357 --> 00:17:30.329
  • And he commands them to do it.
  • 00:17:30.362 --> 00:17:32.531
  • Of course, they didn't do it.They were full of trouble.
  • 00:17:32.564 --> 00:17:34.333
  • He had to eventuallycome and minister to 'em,
  • 00:17:34.366 --> 00:17:36.368
  • get 'em all healed up, butthe fact of the matter
  • 00:17:36.401 --> 00:17:39.638
  • is they could have.
  • 00:17:39.671 --> 00:17:41.974
  • And just because troublecomes, that's the circumstance,
  • 00:17:42.007 --> 00:17:44.409
  • doesn't mean you have to respondwith an equal negative emotion
  • 00:17:44.443 --> 00:17:50.883
  • to match that circumstance.
  • 00:17:50.916 --> 00:17:52.718
  • I wrote a book.I think I wrote a--yeah, I did.
  • 00:17:52.751 --> 00:17:54.920
  • I wrote a book how--somethingabout trouble your trouble.
  • 00:17:54.953 --> 00:18:00.325
  • Yeah, "How toTrouble Your Trouble."
  • 00:18:00.359 --> 00:18:02.494
  • I knew even back then that justbecause you're in trouble you
  • 00:18:02.528 --> 00:18:07.533
  • don't have to betroubled by your trouble,
  • 00:18:07.566 --> 00:18:11.436
  • because you haveauthority over your emotions,
  • 00:18:11.470 --> 00:18:13.639
  • and you have got--youknow, many people think,
  • 00:18:13.672 --> 00:18:15.374
  • "Well, you know, nobodyknows the trouble I've seen."
  • 00:18:15.407 --> 00:18:18.043
  • It doesn't matter thetrouble you've seen.
  • 00:18:18.076 --> 00:18:19.578
  • You have authorityover your emotions.
  • 00:18:19.611 --> 00:18:21.146
  • You can decide the type ofemotions you're gonna have
  • 00:18:21.180 --> 00:18:24.683
  • in the midst of those troubles.
  • 00:18:24.716 --> 00:18:26.485
  • Let me show you this again.
  • 00:18:26.518 --> 00:18:27.986
  • Go to Deuteronomychapter 30, verse 19.
  • 00:18:28.020 --> 00:18:31.690
  • Deuteronomy 30, verse 19.
  • 00:18:31.723 --> 00:18:35.060
  • It is a lie for anybody to tellyou that you don't have control
  • 00:18:35.093 --> 00:18:39.598
  • over your emotions,that is a lie.
  • 00:18:39.631 --> 00:18:42.100
  • You control how you feel.You control how you feel.
  • 00:18:42.134 --> 00:18:46.705
  • You need to letyourself know that,
  • 00:18:46.738 --> 00:18:48.040
  • because most of the timewhen you're going off,
  • 00:18:48.073 --> 00:18:49.408
  • you're going offbecause you don't think
  • 00:18:49.441 --> 00:18:50.976
  • you have any control.
  • 00:18:51.009 --> 00:18:52.311
  • You have--you know, my wife saidsomething that was so amazing.
  • 00:18:52.344 --> 00:18:55.013
  • She says, "You determinehow people treat you."
  • 00:18:55.047 --> 00:18:59.818
  • She says you decidehow people treat you.
  • 00:18:59.851 --> 00:19:03.088
  • It's not even the fact sometimesthat people are mean to you.
  • 00:19:03.121 --> 00:19:05.991
  • You decide how peopletreat you, and you decide
  • 00:19:06.024 --> 00:19:07.926
  • how you wanna be treated.
  • 00:19:07.960 --> 00:19:09.428
  • If you're gonna stand thereand just be disrespected,
  • 00:19:09.461 --> 00:19:11.930
  • that's your decision.
  • 00:19:11.964 --> 00:19:13.398
  • I don't stand in the placeif somebody disrespecting me.
  • 00:19:13.432 --> 00:19:15.400
  • They're gonna have totalk to their self.
  • 00:19:15.434 --> 00:19:17.002
  • I got to go.
  • 00:19:17.035 --> 00:19:19.004
  • Now, you can be cussing,but you're gonna be cussing
  • 00:19:19.037 --> 00:19:20.806
  • somebody else out,'cause I'm gone.
  • 00:19:20.839 --> 00:19:24.509
  • Deuteronomy 30, verse 19 says,"I call heaven and earth to
  • 00:19:24.543 --> 00:19:26.979
  • record this day against you,that I have set before you life
  • 00:19:27.012 --> 00:19:30.649
  • and death, I've set blessingsand cursings: therefore,"
  • 00:19:30.682 --> 00:19:36.221
  • what did he say?
  • 00:19:36.255 --> 00:19:38.323
  • "Choose life, that both thou andthy seed may live," and prosper.
  • 00:19:38.357 --> 00:19:43.695
  • This is simply talking aboutthis wonderful gift to be a free
  • 00:19:43.729 --> 00:19:49.067
  • moral agent andto make a choice.
  • 00:19:49.101 --> 00:19:51.169
  • That you and I can choose.
  • 00:19:51.203 --> 00:19:54.573
  • You can make a choice.
  • 00:19:54.606 --> 00:19:55.974
  • We do have authority over ouremotions through Jesus Christ,
  • 00:19:56.008 --> 00:19:59.011
  • and it is time to walk in thatauthority and take control
  • 00:19:59.044 --> 00:20:04.850
  • of our feelings.
  • 00:20:04.883 --> 00:20:07.386
  • There is authority you have.
  • 00:20:07.419 --> 00:20:09.087
  • Take control of your feelings.
  • 00:20:09.121 --> 00:20:12.958
  • Turn to two people and say,"Take control of your feelings."
  • 00:20:12.991 --> 00:20:21.466
  • Is everybody with me so far?
  • 00:20:21.500 --> 00:20:22.801
  • See, you can sit in any kindof situation and just feel a
  • 00:20:22.834 --> 00:20:25.070
  • certain way and just letthat feeling torment you,
  • 00:20:25.103 --> 00:20:29.007
  • dominate you, create even moreemotions to go along with that,
  • 00:20:29.041 --> 00:20:32.644
  • and you'd be surprised howmuch defeat you walk in just by
  • 00:20:32.678 --> 00:20:36.982
  • sitting at home and allowingthose negative feelings
  • 00:20:37.015 --> 00:20:40.252
  • to minister to you.
  • 00:20:40.285 --> 00:20:41.853
  • You'd be surprised.
  • 00:20:41.887 --> 00:20:43.555
  • By the time you walk out, betternot nobody say nothing to you,
  • 00:20:43.588 --> 00:20:46.124
  • because you're alreadyprompt and ready to respond,
  • 00:20:46.158 --> 00:20:49.361
  • because you wouldn't takecontrol over how you feel.
  • 00:20:49.394 --> 00:20:52.698
  • Please listen to all of this.
  • 00:20:52.731 --> 00:20:54.032
  • I've got to set this foundationup in order for you to
  • 00:20:54.066 --> 00:20:56.101
  • understand where I'm going.
  • 00:20:56.134 --> 00:20:58.670
  • Now, what about thenatural versus the supernatural,
  • 00:20:58.704 --> 00:21:01.506
  • where we're talking aboutwhere emotions are concerned?
  • 00:21:01.540 --> 00:21:04.509
  • You can bring your emotionsunder spiritual dominion.
  • 00:21:04.543 --> 00:21:06.945
  • You can bring your emotionsunder the spiritual dominion of
  • 00:21:06.978 --> 00:21:09.748
  • Jesus Christ, ratherthan under the physical
  • 00:21:09.781 --> 00:21:12.417
  • dominion of the world.
  • 00:21:12.451 --> 00:21:14.086
  • Now, you've gotta choose: are myemotions gonna be brought under
  • 00:21:14.119 --> 00:21:17.689
  • the spiritual dominion, or aremy emotions gonna be brought
  • 00:21:17.723 --> 00:21:20.392
  • under the dominion of the world?
  • 00:21:20.425 --> 00:21:22.527
  • Now, I don't believe that Godintends for us to live by what
  • 00:21:22.561 --> 00:21:25.163
  • the natural realm dictates.
  • 00:21:25.197 --> 00:21:27.232
  • I don't believe God wants us tolive by the circumstances that
  • 00:21:27.265 --> 00:21:30.569
  • show up in our lives on a dailybasis and most of the time the
  • 00:21:30.602 --> 00:21:34.539
  • circumstance is not the problem.
  • 00:21:34.573 --> 00:21:36.375
  • How you respond, yourfeelings and your emotions,
  • 00:21:36.408 --> 00:21:39.277
  • become a bigger problemthan the circumstance,
  • 00:21:39.311 --> 00:21:41.413
  • and so in the natural thereis this thing called humanism.
  • 00:21:41.446 --> 00:21:46.151
  • I know you've heard of it,that says we all have the
  • 00:21:46.184 --> 00:21:48.820
  • answer within ourselves.
  • 00:21:48.854 --> 00:21:51.356
  • We don't need God.
  • 00:21:51.390 --> 00:21:53.058
  • That's the humanistic view, thatman in his self as a human can
  • 00:21:53.091 --> 00:21:57.129
  • do anything, and he hasthe answers on the inside
  • 00:21:57.162 --> 00:22:00.766
  • of his self.
  • 00:22:00.799 --> 00:22:02.134
  • They don't think that theanswer to our problems is
  • 00:22:02.167 --> 00:22:04.736
  • in the spiritual part ofus, because most of them
  • 00:22:04.770 --> 00:22:07.205
  • don't know there is aspiritual part of us,
  • 00:22:07.239 --> 00:22:09.307
  • and that's wherethe answers are.
  • 00:22:09.341 --> 00:22:10.809
  • The answers are in the areawhere--the spiritual part of us,
  • 00:22:10.842 --> 00:22:13.011
  • but they think that it's justin the mental and the emotional
  • 00:22:13.044 --> 00:22:15.614
  • part, and psychologists willdeal with you in those two
  • 00:22:15.647 --> 00:22:19.050
  • realms: your mentaland emotional part.
  • 00:22:19.084 --> 00:22:21.019
  • They think that'swhere the answer is,
  • 00:22:21.052 --> 00:22:22.554
  • but the answer to a lot ofissues are right there in your
  • 00:22:22.587 --> 00:22:25.657
  • spirit, where wisdom grows.
  • 00:22:25.690 --> 00:22:27.325
  • Look at Genesischapter 1, verse 26 and 27.
  • 00:22:27.359 --> 00:22:31.930
  • It's right therewhere wisdom grows,
  • 00:22:31.963 --> 00:22:33.965
  • not just in yourmental and your emotions,
  • 00:22:33.999 --> 00:22:36.334
  • but we have something thatthe world doesn't have: the
  • 00:22:36.368 --> 00:22:39.905
  • understanding that wehave power in our spirit.
  • 00:22:39.938 --> 00:22:42.674
  • And if we submit ouremotions to the spiritual realm,
  • 00:22:42.707 --> 00:22:46.111
  • to the supernatural realm,rather than submitting our
  • 00:22:46.144 --> 00:22:49.548
  • emotions to thenatural realm--see,
  • 00:22:49.581 --> 00:22:51.817
  • if you submit your emotions,basically you're saying,
  • 00:22:51.850 --> 00:22:53.585
  • "Such and so, suchand so felt like,
  • 00:22:53.618 --> 00:22:55.153
  • so it's all right forme to feel like that.
  • 00:22:55.187 --> 00:22:56.822
  • I'm just like everybody else."
  • 00:22:56.855 --> 00:22:58.323
  • Or you can say, "No,that's not what Jesus says.
  • 00:22:58.356 --> 00:23:00.992
  • I'm gonna submit my emotions tothe Word of God and the Spirit
  • 00:23:01.026 --> 00:23:03.862
  • of God, and I'm gonna not allowmy emotions to dominate me in
  • 00:23:03.895 --> 00:23:07.299
  • this natural world."
  • 00:23:07.332 --> 00:23:08.967
  • Genesis 1:26 says,"And God said,
  • 00:23:09.000 --> 00:23:11.102
  • Let us make man in our," what?
  • 00:23:11.136 --> 00:23:12.671
  • "Image, after our likeness: letthem have dominion over fish of
  • 00:23:12.704 --> 00:23:16.775
  • the sea, fowl of theair, over the cattle,
  • 00:23:16.808 --> 00:23:18.977
  • over the earth, over everycreeping thing that creepeth
  • 00:23:19.010 --> 00:23:21.947
  • upon the earth."
  • 00:23:21.980 --> 00:23:23.315
  • Verse 27, "So God createdman in his own image,
  • 00:23:23.348 --> 00:23:26.051
  • in the image ofGod created he him;
  • 00:23:26.084 --> 00:23:28.119
  • he created--male andfemale he created them."
  • 00:23:28.153 --> 00:23:32.357
  • We were not createdto stand alone.
  • 00:23:32.390 --> 00:23:36.495
  • He created them.
  • 00:23:36.528 --> 00:23:38.763
  • Now, I'm mentioning that becauseyou gotta be careful when you're
  • 00:23:38.797 --> 00:23:43.301
  • trying to dealwith your emotions.
  • 00:23:43.335 --> 00:23:44.769
  • That you don't decide that"well, I don't need anybody.
  • 00:23:44.803 --> 00:23:48.306
  • I've been hurt bytoo many people.
  • 00:23:48.340 --> 00:23:49.641
  • I've been disappointed bytoo many people,
  • 00:23:49.674 --> 00:23:50.976
  • so I'm gonna resignmyself from relationships,
  • 00:23:51.009 --> 00:23:52.844
  • and I'm gonnafigure it out myself."
  • 00:23:52.878 --> 00:23:54.779
  • We were created to betogether with somebody.
  • 00:23:54.813 --> 00:23:58.016
  • When you do that, you're gonnamiss out on one of the greatest
  • 00:23:58.049 --> 00:24:00.118
  • gifts that Godwants to give you,
  • 00:24:00.151 --> 00:24:02.254
  • and that is the awesome stuffthat comes from relationships,
  • 00:24:02.287 --> 00:24:05.557
  • and that also includes theability to mature and to grow
  • 00:24:05.590 --> 00:24:09.261
  • and to recognize things aboutyourself that you would not be
  • 00:24:09.294 --> 00:24:12.664
  • able to recognize exceptyou were in a relationship
  • 00:24:12.697 --> 00:24:14.699
  • with somebody else.
  • 00:24:14.733 --> 00:24:17.068
  • And no man's an island.
  • 00:24:17.102 --> 00:24:18.403
  • That's a true statement,not a Scripture,
  • 00:24:18.436 --> 00:24:20.539
  • but I do agree with it 100%.
  • 00:24:20.572 --> 00:24:22.707
  • That the objective is not tobecome emotionless and then
  • 00:24:22.741 --> 00:24:27.045
  • hide behind Scripture as ifyou don't have issues.
  • 00:24:27.078 --> 00:24:30.849
  • You're going to have an issue.
  • 00:24:30.882 --> 00:24:32.617
  • You got to learn--see, youdon't wanna get in a place where
  • 00:24:32.651 --> 00:24:35.921
  • you're so by yourself thatyou become so self-centered,
  • 00:24:35.954 --> 00:24:39.124
  • and you use your hurtsand your pains as an
  • 00:24:39.157 --> 00:24:41.192
  • excuse to not developrelationships with people.
  • 00:24:41.226 --> 00:24:43.862
  • That's not why God created us.
  • 00:24:43.895 --> 00:24:46.264
  • We are the body of Christ, andwe should have a connection and
