  • I tell you, when you can't findthe Scripture, when you can't
  • 00:01:48.188 --> 00:01:50.623
  • find the reasons, and whenyou don't understand a lot of
  • 00:01:50.657 --> 00:01:53.259
  • things, this is the thing--I'mtelling you, this has been--my
  • 00:01:53.293 --> 00:01:55.995
  • bedrock, man, is that I know Godloves me, and I've been in the
  • 00:01:56.029 --> 00:02:02.835
  • middle of some crazy things thathas happened in my life, but I
  • 00:02:02.869 --> 00:02:05.271
  • tell you what, God loves me,and I need you to know the
  • 00:02:05.305 --> 00:02:08.541
  • same thing.
  • 00:02:08.575 --> 00:02:10.009
  • I don't know exactly all thethings that you've been goin'
  • 00:02:10.043 --> 00:02:11.878
  • through over theselast six weeks.
  • 00:02:11.911 --> 00:02:13.780
  • I do know this one thing: Godloves you, and he's waiting on
  • 00:02:13.813 --> 00:02:16.015
  • you to declare it andyou to believe it.
  • 00:02:16.049 --> 00:02:18.918
  • 1 John 4:18, he says, "Thereis no fear in love, but perfect
  • 00:02:18.952 --> 00:02:22.589
  • love casteth out all fearbecause fear hath torment.
  • 00:02:22.622 --> 00:02:26.659
  • And he that feareth isnot made perfect in love."
  • 00:02:26.693 --> 00:02:30.630
  • You see, the fear of recession,the fear of the future, the fear
  • 00:02:30.663 --> 00:02:36.002
  • of growing old, being byyourself, not having a life
  • 00:02:36.035 --> 00:02:41.407
  • partner, you see, God's lovewill remove all of this.
  • 00:02:41.441 --> 00:02:47.013
  • You don't walk around, you know,fearing the recession because
  • 00:02:47.046 --> 00:02:50.683
  • you know God loves you.
  • 00:02:50.717 --> 00:02:52.252
  • You don't walk aroundfearing the future.
  • 00:02:52.285 --> 00:02:53.753
  • You know God loves you.
  • 00:02:53.786 --> 00:02:55.355
  • You don't walk aroundfearing getting older.
  • 00:02:55.388 --> 00:02:57.624
  • God loves you.
  • 00:02:57.657 --> 00:02:59.292
  • You don't walk around with thosethings, simply because you know
  • 00:02:59.325 --> 00:03:01.060
  • God loves you.
  • 00:03:01.094 --> 00:03:02.629
  • Look at all the things you winover because you're cultivating
  • 00:03:02.662 --> 00:03:06.332
  • the love that God has for you.
  • 00:03:06.366 --> 00:03:09.002
  • Your wife, your husband, yourchildren, your best friend in
  • 00:03:09.035 --> 00:03:11.204
  • your life, all of those are justexpressions of God's love
  • 00:03:11.237 --> 00:03:15.942
  • for you.
  • 00:03:15.975 --> 00:03:18.211
  • I mean, my wife is God'sexpression of his love for me.
  • 00:03:18.244 --> 00:03:23.883
  • My children, that's God'sexpression of his love for me.
  • 00:03:23.916 --> 00:03:27.220
  • God wants to expresshis love for me.
  • 00:03:27.253 --> 00:03:29.756
  • I mean, my church,it's God's expression.
  • 00:03:29.789 --> 00:03:32.592
  • I mean, you know, in my opinion,I feel like I got the greatest
  • 00:03:32.625 --> 00:03:34.994
  • congregations in the world, theWorld Changers nation, man,
  • 00:03:35.028 --> 00:03:37.363
  • all over.
  • 00:03:37.397 --> 00:03:39.399
  • That's God's expressionof his love to me.
  • 00:03:39.432 --> 00:03:44.070
  • And it's the cross of Jesusthat's an expression of God's
  • 00:03:44.103 --> 00:03:48.041
  • love for me.
  • 00:03:48.074 --> 00:03:50.743
  • It's the fact that Jesus lovedme so much, he got on a cross,
  • 00:03:50.777 --> 00:03:53.079
  • he bore my sins.
  • 00:03:53.112 --> 00:03:54.847
  • He shed his blood.
  • 00:03:54.881 --> 00:03:56.449
  • His body was broken.
  • 00:03:56.482 --> 00:03:58.217
  • He was beat with acat-o'-nine-tail, and if that
  • 00:03:58.251 --> 00:04:00.186
  • wasn't enough, he went to hell,and he was raised from hell on
  • 00:04:00.219 --> 00:04:02.388
  • the third day.
  • 00:04:02.422 --> 00:04:04.223
  • God wants to express his love.
  • 00:04:04.257 --> 00:04:07.060
  • And I'm tellin' you, you canlook for that, but where's this
  • 00:04:07.093 --> 00:04:09.495
  • thing gon' start?
  • 00:04:09.529 --> 00:04:11.531
  • It's gonna start with this verysimple thing: "I believe God
  • 00:04:11.564 --> 00:04:14.801
  • loves me."
  • 00:04:14.834 --> 00:04:17.270
  • You know, David says somethin'.
  • 00:04:17.303 --> 00:04:19.272
  • You talk about releasing yourfaith where the love of God
  • 00:04:19.305 --> 00:04:20.740
  • is concerned.
  • 00:04:20.773 --> 00:04:22.842
  • David said, "I had to believe inthe goodness of the Lord in the
  • 00:04:22.875 --> 00:04:27.080
  • land of the living."
  • 00:04:27.113 --> 00:04:29.682
  • In other words, he had torelease his faith for goodness
  • 00:04:29.716 --> 00:04:32.919
  • in the land of the living.
  • 00:04:32.952 --> 00:04:35.521
  • And I want you to release yourfaith where the love of God
  • 00:04:35.555 --> 00:04:37.123
  • is concerned.
  • 00:04:37.156 --> 00:04:39.826
  • And no matter what you'refacing, praise God, all is well.
  • 00:04:39.859 --> 00:04:43.363
  • You know, in the Old Testament,now, you see the love of God,
  • 00:04:43.396 --> 00:04:48.768
  • the tender loving-kindness.
  • 00:04:48.801 --> 00:04:52.939
  • It's a Hebrew word,"chesed," or "chesed."
  • 00:04:52.972 --> 00:04:57.243
  • It's "mercy."
  • 00:04:57.276 --> 00:04:59.112
  • It's "loving-kindness."
  • 00:04:59.145 --> 00:05:00.646
  • It's "chesed."
  • 00:05:00.680 --> 00:05:02.014
  • It's the tender loving-kindnesswhere God wants to do you good
  • 00:05:02.048 --> 00:05:07.553
  • and make you happy.
  • 00:05:07.587 --> 00:05:11.457
  • 2 Chronicles 20 is aillustration about that
  • 00:05:11.491 --> 00:05:14.761
  • tender loving-kindness.
  • 00:05:14.794 --> 00:05:17.897
  • They begin in 2 Chronicles.
  • 00:05:17.930 --> 00:05:19.966
  • You remember when the praisesingers were sent to the battle
  • 00:05:19.999 --> 00:05:23.536
  • line, and they began to singpraise and declare that, "For
  • 00:05:23.569 --> 00:05:28.040
  • the Lord is good, and his mercyendureth forever," and the Lord
  • 00:05:28.074 --> 00:05:31.744
  • set an ambushment against thosearmies, and they all fell dead,
  • 00:05:31.778 --> 00:05:35.982
  • and it took them three daysto gather up all the spoil.
  • 00:05:36.015 --> 00:05:40.286
  • It was so much.
  • 00:05:40.319 --> 00:05:42.588
  • Wow, man.
  • 00:05:42.622 --> 00:05:44.590
  • They sang about how much Godloved them, and it took three
  • 00:05:44.624 --> 00:05:48.094
  • days to gather thespoils from the victory.
  • 00:05:48.127 --> 00:05:52.165
  • Somebody says, "What was theweapon they used that day?"
  • 00:05:52.198 --> 00:05:55.401
  • They began to give God praiseover the love he had for 'em.
  • 00:05:55.435 --> 00:05:59.605
  • That's a powerful thing.
  • 00:05:59.639 --> 00:06:02.208
  • And maybe where you are and theissue you might be dealin' with
  • 00:06:02.241 --> 00:06:04.143
  • and the situation that might begoin' on in your life, I think
  • 00:06:04.177 --> 00:06:06.913
  • you might need to just stepback a little bit and just start
  • 00:06:06.946 --> 00:06:08.915
  • praising God for the love thatyou know that he has for you.
  • 00:06:08.948 --> 00:06:14.420
  • I believe there's great victoryin the lives of people who will
  • 00:06:14.454 --> 00:06:17.957
  • begin to express their faith andtheir belief in the love that
  • 00:06:17.990 --> 00:06:22.728
  • God has for them.
  • 00:06:22.762 --> 00:06:25.465
  • They sang about howmuch God loved them.
  • 00:06:25.498 --> 00:06:28.234
  • And look at the victory.
  • 00:06:28.267 --> 00:06:31.070
  • But, you know, my concern todayas I preach somethin' that I
  • 00:06:31.103 --> 00:06:33.606
  • feel is simple to get a hold of,I'm teaching somethin' I really
  • 00:06:33.639 --> 00:06:37.577
  • believe that people canget a hold of tonight.
  • 00:06:37.610 --> 00:06:40.046
  • My concern is sometimes is thatthe church is too intelligent to
  • 00:06:40.079 --> 00:06:43.382
  • receive this message becauseit's nothin' complicated
  • 00:06:43.416 --> 00:06:48.554
  • about it.
  • 00:06:48.588 --> 00:06:51.858
  • Children get it.
  • 00:06:51.891 --> 00:06:54.093
  • They laugh, and they smile.
  • 00:06:54.126 --> 00:06:57.263
  • Children are innocent.
  • 00:06:57.296 --> 00:07:00.299
  • They know about thisjoy and this strength.
  • 00:07:00.333 --> 00:07:03.736
  • I want you to get this tonight.
  • 00:07:03.769 --> 00:07:06.172
  • It's not complicated.
  • 00:07:06.205 --> 00:07:08.508
  • Two weeks, Pastor West hasbeen encouragin' us in this
  • 00:07:08.541 --> 00:07:09.942
  • area, man.
  • 00:07:09.976 --> 00:07:11.878
  • I want you to get it.
  • 00:07:11.911 --> 00:07:13.546
  • It's a key.
  • 00:07:13.579 --> 00:07:14.947
  • In fact, I would go so far tosay it's a master key that, no
  • 00:07:14.981 --> 00:07:16.749
  • matter what you hear andwhat you have heard, there's
  • 00:07:16.782 --> 00:07:18.951
  • nothin', there is nothin' thatis more powerful than believing
  • 00:07:18.985 --> 00:07:22.154
  • in the love of Godbecause God is love, amen?
  • 00:07:22.188 --> 00:07:26.659
  • So when you stop sensing God'slove for you, you open yourself
  • 00:07:26.692 --> 00:07:32.265
  • up to all kinds of fear.
  • 00:07:32.298 --> 00:07:35.401
  • If you find yourself wakin'up in the morning and you stop
  • 00:07:35.434 --> 00:07:37.970
  • sensing that God loves you,and you've allowed somethin' to
  • 00:07:38.004 --> 00:07:41.407
  • creep in that's attacking yourfaith and your stance where
  • 00:07:41.440 --> 00:07:44.577
  • God's love is concerned, you'regonna open yourself up for fear.
  • 00:07:44.610 --> 00:07:49.448
  • You gotta get up every morning,and you gotta sense "how much
  • 00:07:49.482 --> 00:07:51.984
  • God loves me."
  • 00:07:52.018 --> 00:07:54.320
  • You gotta wake up every morning,and, just, "God loves me.
  • 00:07:54.353 --> 00:07:58.090
  • He allowed me tosleep last night.
  • 00:07:58.124 --> 00:07:59.992
  • He allowed me torise this morning.
  • 00:08:00.026 --> 00:08:02.461
  • There are a lot of thingsthat could've happened to me
  • 00:08:02.495 --> 00:08:04.230
  • yesterday, but hedidn't allow it.
  • 00:08:04.263 --> 00:08:06.832
  • I could've been dead,sleepin' in my grave.
  • 00:08:06.866 --> 00:08:09.035
  • He didn't allow it.
  • 00:08:09.068 --> 00:08:11.504
  • Every day, have a consciousawareness every day that "God
  • 00:08:11.537 --> 00:08:16.108
  • loves me," that "God'sin love with me."
  • 00:08:16.142 --> 00:08:21.013
  • Another story or exampleis in 1 Samuel chapter 17.
  • 00:08:21.047 --> 00:08:25.284
  • This is a story of David andGoliath and how David, this
  • 00:08:25.318 --> 00:08:31.324
  • young teenage boy, is goin'against Goliath because he
  • 00:08:31.357 --> 00:08:35.127
  • really believed God.
  • 00:08:35.161 --> 00:08:37.830
  • And I thought it was interestingthat all of Israel was in fear
  • 00:08:37.863 --> 00:08:43.002
  • of this bully, Goliath.
  • 00:08:43.035 --> 00:08:47.273
  • And I thought it was interestingthat his name, "Goliath," means
  • 00:08:47.306 --> 00:08:51.110
  • "stripped" or "captive."
  • 00:08:51.143 --> 00:08:54.780
  • "Goliath," "stripped"or "captive."
  • 00:08:54.814 --> 00:08:58.918
  • And I never reallythought about it.
  • 00:08:58.951 --> 00:09:00.786
  • I said, "I wonder, in thisbattle, stripped and captive
  • 00:09:00.820 --> 00:09:03.489
  • against David, whatdoes David's name mean?"
  • 00:09:03.522 --> 00:09:06.158
  • David's name means "beloved."
  • 00:09:06.192 --> 00:09:09.395
  • David's name means "beloved."
  • 00:09:09.428 --> 00:09:12.365
  • So you've got Goliath fightingsomeone who knows that they
  • 00:09:12.398 --> 00:09:17.470
  • are beloved.
  • 00:09:17.503 --> 00:09:20.106
  • And this big, ole giant fighting"Beloved" is only gonna be
  • 00:09:20.139 --> 00:09:23.309
  • stripped and captive.
  • 00:09:23.342 --> 00:09:27.113
  • And I'm tellin' you, in the nameof Jesus, that's what happens in
  • 00:09:27.146 --> 00:09:29.382
  • your life.
  • 00:09:29.415 --> 00:09:31.484
  • I mean, think about it.
  • 00:09:31.517 --> 00:09:33.386
  • What does it take toconquer an elephant?
  • 00:09:33.419 --> 00:09:35.287
  • Watch this--a mouse.
  • 00:09:35.321 --> 00:09:37.623
  • What does it take toconquer a Goliath?
  • 00:09:37.657 --> 00:09:39.625
  • A David.
  • 00:09:39.659 --> 00:09:41.927
  • What does it take to conquerthe Goliath that's in your life?
  • 00:09:41.961 --> 00:09:47.066
  • I'll tell ya what: It's knowingthat you are God's beloved and
  • 00:09:47.099 --> 00:09:50.436
  • that you are loved by God.
  • 00:09:50.469 --> 00:09:54.707
  • And so no matter how big thesituation in your life is, no
  • 00:09:54.740 --> 00:09:57.176
  • matter how big the circumstancesin your life are, let me tell ya
  • 00:09:57.209 --> 00:10:00.513
  • somethin': You conquer it byknowing how much God loves you.
  • 00:10:00.546 --> 00:10:08.421
  • So love is not a feelin',but it's a choice.
  • 00:10:08.454 --> 00:10:12.224
  • It's like marriage.
  • 00:10:12.258 --> 00:10:14.593
  • It's a choice.
  • 00:10:14.627 --> 00:10:17.129
  • Love is a choice foreverto love no matter what.
  • 00:10:17.163 --> 00:10:22.868
  • Marriage--you see, my choice tolove you is a choice regardless
  • 00:10:22.902 --> 00:10:29.475
  • of the imperfections, and that'show it should be in marriage.
  • 00:10:29.508 --> 00:10:34.513
  • You get married.
  • 00:10:34.547 --> 00:10:35.915
  • You made a choice to love.
  • 00:10:35.948 --> 00:10:37.583
  • You made a choice to givesomebody the gift of love, not
  • 00:10:37.616 --> 00:10:39.952
  • based on their imperfection.
  • 00:10:39.985 --> 00:10:43.789
  • You've decided,"I'm gonna love you.
  • 00:10:43.823 --> 00:10:46.125
  • I give my love toyou as a gift."
  • 00:10:46.158 --> 00:10:50.629
  • And so marriage is a sense offorgiving and forgetting because
  • 00:10:50.663 --> 00:10:57.369
  • "I've decided to marry," "I'vedecided to love you," "I've
  • 00:10:57.403 --> 00:11:01.941
  • decided to forgive you,""I've decided to forget
  • 00:11:01.974 --> 00:11:05.644
  • certain things."
  • 00:11:05.678 --> 00:11:08.414
  • I don't think peoplereally understand.
  • 00:11:08.447 --> 00:11:11.550
  • I mean, the love the Bible talksabout us having in a marriage,
  • 00:11:11.584 --> 00:11:16.622
  • think about it.
  • 00:11:16.655 --> 00:11:18.290
  • Man, you don't evenbelieve God loves you.
  • 00:11:18.324 --> 00:11:20.226
  • What's gonna have to happen inthat marriage before you just
  • 00:11:20.259 --> 00:11:21.994
  • don't believe thatthere's no love there?
  • 00:11:22.027 --> 00:11:24.630
  • I often think about the excuseI get from married couples when
  • 00:11:24.663 --> 00:11:27.032
  • they say, "I love her, butI'm not 'in love' with her."
  • 00:11:27.066 --> 00:11:30.436
  • I just wanna slap him.
  • 00:11:30.469 --> 00:11:33.172
  • It's important that youunderstand that we must focus on
  • 00:11:33.205 --> 00:11:36.242
  • God's love for us.
  • 00:11:36.275 --> 00:11:38.711
  • We love becauseGod first loved us.
  • 00:11:38.744 --> 00:11:41.981
  • I love God because God firstloved me, and by God first
  • 00:11:42.014 --> 00:11:47.119
  • loving me, heenabled me to love.
  • 00:11:47.153 --> 00:11:52.024
  • I can love somebody elsebecause God loves me.
  • 00:11:52.057 --> 00:11:55.461
  • I can love my wife, and I canlove my children--and you can
  • 00:11:55.494 --> 00:11:58.531
  • love your wife or your husbandwhen you first recognize "God
  • 00:11:58.564 --> 00:12:01.834
  • loves me."
  • 00:12:01.867 --> 00:12:03.569
  • So what happens?
  • 00:12:03.602 --> 00:12:04.970
  • He loved us first,enabling us to love.
  • 00:12:05.004 --> 00:12:08.741
  • He loved us with a supernaturallove, and the Holy Spirit has
  • 00:12:08.774 --> 00:12:11.877
  • imparted in us a supernaturallove, and we take that
  • 00:12:11.911 --> 00:12:14.346
  • supernatural love, and we lovewhat's hard and what's ugly and
  • 00:12:14.380 --> 00:12:19.752
  • what's painful because we'renot lovin' with a natural love.
  • 00:12:19.785 --> 00:12:25.891
  • We're loving with asupernatural love.
  • 00:12:25.925 --> 00:12:28.661
  • We're not lovin' with the lovethat the world loves with.
  • 00:12:28.694 --> 00:12:31.664
  • Our love is supernatural.
  • 00:12:31.697 --> 00:12:34.099
  • And I'm sure you probably saidthere are certain things that
  • 00:12:34.133 --> 00:12:35.968
  • can happen in your marriage, andthen that's it, but when you're
  • 00:12:36.001 --> 00:12:39.271
  • loving people supernaturallyand when you dedicate that
  • 00:12:39.305 --> 00:12:41.407
  • supernatural love in thatmarriage, the only thing that
  • 00:12:41.440 --> 00:12:45.110
  • can break it up is somebody'sdecision just to not want it.
  • 00:12:45.144 --> 00:12:49.615
  • I know God loves me.
  • 00:12:49.648 --> 00:12:52.451
  • I can have a flashback and lookat too many things that God has
  • 00:12:52.484 --> 00:12:55.754
  • done in my life that Iknow I did not deserve.
  • 00:12:55.788 --> 00:13:00.125
  • He loves me.
  • 00:13:00.159 --> 00:13:02.394
  • Praise God, he loves me.
  • 00:13:02.428 --> 00:13:05.598
  • You know, the Song of Solomon inchapter 1, just, I encourage you
  • 00:13:05.631 --> 00:13:13.372
  • to read it.
  • 00:13:13.405 --> 00:13:15.441
  • It's all about this love, andSolomon 1, in 5, and then verse
  • 00:13:15.474 --> 00:13:21.280
  • 15, and then Solomon chapter 4,verse 7, talked about because of
  • 00:13:21.313 --> 00:13:27.119
  • the blood of Jesus.
  • 00:13:27.152 --> 00:13:29.355
  • I mean, this stuffis full of love.
  • 00:13:29.388 --> 00:13:32.358
  • But I wanna look at this inRomans chapter 8, verse 35
  • 00:13:32.391 --> 00:13:35.127
  • through 39, because this isreally something that, if you
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:40.232
  • will engage and just really geta hold of, I think it'll change
  • 00:13:40.266 --> 00:13:44.837
  • your life.
  • 00:13:44.870 --> 00:13:47.539
  • And so he asked the questionhere, "Who shall separate us
  • 00:13:47.573 --> 00:13:51.143
  • from the love of Christ?"
  • 00:13:51.176 --> 00:13:54.580
  • Now, you've got to know thereare gonna be a lot of things
  • 00:13:54.613 --> 00:13:57.883
  • sent by courtesy of your enemyto try to get you to separate
  • 00:13:57.917 --> 00:14:03.722
  • yourself from thelove of Christ.
  • 00:14:03.756 --> 00:14:05.858
  • Now, here's the thingI thought about.
  • 00:14:05.891 --> 00:14:07.793
  • This must really be a big issue,Satan, if you're throwing all of
  • 00:14:07.826 --> 00:14:11.463
  • this stuff to try to get meto separate from the love
  • 00:14:11.497 --> 00:14:13.999
  • of Christ.
  • 00:14:14.033 --> 00:14:16.502
  • What can separate youfrom the love of Christ?
  • 00:14:16.535 --> 00:14:19.104
  • You know, I've seen people whenthings didn't go their way: "Oh,
  • 00:14:19.138 --> 00:14:20.906
  • I'm mad at God."
  • 00:14:20.940 --> 00:14:22.641
  • How you gon' be mad at theonly one that can help you?
  • 00:14:22.675 --> 00:14:26.245
  • So there are gonna belots of things comin'.
  • 00:14:26.278 --> 00:14:28.547
  • Like I said, Satan's full intentis to try to get you to doubt
  • 00:14:28.580 --> 00:14:33.218
  • the love that God has for you.
  • 00:14:33.252 --> 00:14:35.888
  • So he says, "Who shall separateus from the love of Christ?
  • 00:14:35.921 --> 00:14:38.624
  • Shall tribulation, or distress,or persecution," you see why
  • 00:14:38.657 --> 00:14:43.963
  • tribulation come?
  • 00:14:43.996 --> 00:14:46.065
  • Tribulation comes to try toseparate you from the love
  • 00:14:46.098 --> 00:14:48.100
  • of Christ.
  • 00:14:48.133 --> 00:14:50.235
  • Could it be that coronavirus ishere, not sent by God, but maybe
  • 00:14:50.269 --> 00:14:54.540
  • to try to separate you fromthe love of Christ, or somebody
  • 00:14:54.573 --> 00:14:57.843
  • passed to try to separate youfrom the love of Christ, or you
  • 00:14:57.876 --> 00:15:00.946
  • lost your employment to try toseparate you from the love of
  • 00:15:00.980 --> 00:15:03.048
  • Christ, or the people that youcared about hadn't called you
  • 00:15:03.082 --> 00:15:06.452
  • yet--and it's been six weeks--totry to separate you from the
  • 00:15:06.485 --> 00:15:09.288
  • love of Christ?
  • 00:15:09.321 --> 00:15:11.423
  • Everything that happens istryin' to separate you from the
  • 00:15:11.457 --> 00:15:13.258
  • love of Christ.
  • 00:15:13.292 --> 00:15:15.361
  • "Shall tribulation, or distress,or persecution, or famine, or
  • 00:15:15.394 --> 00:15:18.664
  • nakedness, or peril, or sword?
  • 00:15:18.697 --> 00:15:22.868
  • As it is written, 'For thy sakewe are killed all the day long.
  • 00:15:22.901 --> 00:15:26.772
  • We are accounted assheep for the slaughter.'"
  • 00:15:26.805 --> 00:15:29.775
  • Look at verse 37: "Nay, in allthese things we are more than
  • 00:15:29.808 --> 00:15:35.414
  • conquerors," we can conquerpersecution, we can conquer
  • 00:15:35.447 --> 00:15:39.551
  • tribulation, we can conquerthe danger, we can conquer the
  • 00:15:39.585 --> 00:15:43.589
  • virus, we can conquer the lack,we can conquer the debt, and all
  • 00:15:43.622 --> 00:15:49.495
  • these things we'remore than conquerors.
  • 00:15:49.528 --> 00:15:52.031
  • How?
  • 00:15:52.064 --> 00:15:53.599
  • Through him that loved us.
  • 00:15:53.632 --> 00:15:55.067
  • You wanna know how I getvictory all the time?
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:57.603
  • You wanna know why I'mnot able to be wiped out?
  • 00:15:57.636 --> 00:16:00.305
  • You wanna know why I wasn'tdefeated this time or that time?
  • 00:16:00.339 --> 00:16:03.642
  • Because I have victorythrough Christ who loves me.
  • 00:16:03.675 --> 00:16:08.280
  • I know he loves me.
  • 00:16:08.313 --> 00:16:10.682
  • And look at what he says here:"For I'm persuaded, that neither
  • 00:16:10.716 --> 00:16:14.119
  • death," that's really--you havegot to believe this love until
  • 00:16:14.153 --> 00:16:19.191
  • you are fully persuaded, "fullypersuaded that neither death,
  • 00:16:19.224 --> 00:16:24.263
  • nor life, nor angels, norprincipalities, nor powers, nor
  • 00:16:24.296 --> 00:16:31.070
  • things present, nor things tocome, nor height, nor depth, nor
  • 00:16:31.103 --> 00:16:37.476
  • any other creature, shall beable to separate us from the
  • 00:16:37.509 --> 00:16:42.514
  • love of God, which is inChrist Jesus our Lord."
  • 00:16:42.548 --> 00:16:49.555
  • You gotta get a hold of that.
  • 00:16:49.588 --> 00:16:51.690
  • Can troubles stop God's lovefrom working in your life and
  • 00:16:51.723 --> 00:16:56.361
  • for your behalf?
  • 00:16:56.395 --> 00:16:59.231
  • Can famine stop God's lovefor providing for you?
  • 00:16:59.264 --> 00:17:04.336
  • You understand what I'm sayin'?
  • 00:17:04.369 --> 00:17:06.038
  • Famine can't stop God's love.
  • 00:17:06.071 --> 00:17:07.806
  • In other words, no matter whathappens, it won't stop God's
  • 00:17:07.840 --> 00:17:09.341
  • love from showin' up.
  • 00:17:09.374 --> 00:17:12.177
  • Coronavirus is not gonna stopGod's love from showin' up.
  • 00:17:12.211 --> 00:17:16.181
  • Lack won't stop God's lovefrom bringin' you provisions.
  • 00:17:16.215 --> 00:17:21.353
  • Unemployment won't stop God'slove from makin' sure you have
  • 00:17:21.386 --> 00:17:24.823
  • a job.
  • 00:17:24.857 --> 00:17:27.426
  • Nothin' is going to stopGod's love from working on
  • 00:17:27.459 --> 00:17:31.130
  • your behalf.
  • 00:17:31.163 --> 00:17:33.532
  • So start sensing God's lovefor your situations in life.
  • 00:17:33.565 --> 00:17:40.072
  • Begin to meditate on God's love.
  • 00:17:40.105 --> 00:17:42.541
  • Start believing this.
  • 00:17:42.574 --> 00:17:44.576
  • Start practicing this.
  • 00:17:44.610 --> 00:17:46.478
  • This is the power to get thewealth and to get the help and
  • 00:17:46.512 --> 00:17:50.983
  • to get the promotion and to getthe peace and to get the thing
  • 00:17:51.016 --> 00:17:55.454
  • that you hope for.
  • 00:17:55.487 --> 00:17:57.489
  • But nothin' comin' from thedevil, nothin' comin' from this
  • 00:17:57.523 --> 00:17:59.892
  • world is gonna stop the loveof God from workin' for you.
  • 00:17:59.925 --> 00:18:04.963
  • So whatever it is, if dangercomes, the love of God will
  • 00:18:04.997 --> 00:18:08.400
  • bring about the rescue.
  • 00:18:08.433 --> 00:18:11.770
  • So whatever it is, it's like,"Bring it on," because God's
  • 00:18:11.803 --> 00:18:14.840
  • love is never gonnabe separated from me.
  • 00:18:14.873 --> 00:18:19.778
  • Whether you deserve it or not,his love goes so, so much higher
  • 00:18:19.811 --> 00:18:29.188
  • than your ability to deserve it.
  • 00:18:29.221 --> 00:18:33.258
  • Fear is a result of notbelieving God's love for you.
  • 00:18:33.292 --> 00:18:41.400
  • Fear is a result of notbelieving God's love for you,
  • 00:18:41.433 --> 00:18:49.875
  • so get rid of the fear.
  • 00:18:49.908 --> 00:18:52.010
  • "Perfect love castsout all fear."
  • 00:18:52.044 --> 00:18:55.080
  • I believe God's love.
  • 00:18:55.113 --> 00:18:57.416
  • I pray that somehow you gota hold of this: "God loves me,
  • 00:18:57.449 --> 00:19:02.588
  • man, and I know it.
  • 00:19:02.621 --> 00:19:04.690
  • God loves me, and I know it.
  • 00:19:04.723 --> 00:19:07.459
  • God loves me, and I know it."
  • 00:19:07.492 --> 00:19:10.796
  • I tell you, you'll begin to seeand walk in the most powerful
  • 00:19:10.829 --> 00:19:14.733
  • times of your life when you stayfocused, practice, meditate on
  • 00:19:14.766 --> 00:19:21.807
  • the love that God has for you.
  • 00:19:21.840 --> 00:19:24.610
  • Let's pray.
  • 00:19:24.643 --> 00:19:26.878
  • Father, I thank you in the nameof Jesus that tonight we know we
  • 00:19:26.912 --> 00:19:33.018
  • are beloved.
  • 00:19:33.051 --> 00:19:36.355
  • Tonight we know without andbeyond any shadow of a doubt
