  • Creflo: It is important for youto understand that the key to
  • 00:01:42.715 --> 00:01:45.818
  • deliverance is gettingyour eyes off yourself.
  • 00:01:45.852 --> 00:01:51.024
  • You remember when God sent thosefiery serpents and they
  • 00:01:51.057 --> 00:01:53.092
  • stung Israel?
  • 00:01:53.126 --> 00:01:55.562
  • And then, he had Moses to builda brass snake and put it on a
  • 00:01:55.595 --> 00:01:59.666
  • stick, and he said whoeverlooked on the stick, that brass
  • 00:01:59.699 --> 00:02:03.269
  • snake on the stick,they were healed.
  • 00:02:03.303 --> 00:02:07.173
  • What's the key there?
  • 00:02:07.207 --> 00:02:08.942
  • They got their eyes offthemselves, and I know it sounds
  • 00:02:08.975 --> 00:02:12.579
  • insensitive for me to be sayingthat, but you got to get your
  • 00:02:12.612 --> 00:02:16.482
  • eyes off the breakup.
  • 00:02:16.516 --> 00:02:18.418
  • You got to get youreyes off yourself.
  • 00:02:18.451 --> 00:02:20.486
  • The key to deliverance isgetting your eyes off yourself
  • 00:02:20.520 --> 00:02:23.823
  • and start focusing on that brasssnake that's on that stick.
  • 00:02:23.856 --> 00:02:30.363
  • Start focusing on Jesus likethey focused on that snake on
  • 00:02:30.396 --> 00:02:32.799
  • that stick.
  • 00:02:32.832 --> 00:02:34.901
  • Somebody says, "Whyit's gotta be a snake?"
  • 00:02:34.934 --> 00:02:36.736
  • Well, that was Jesus absorbingall the sins of the world,
  • 00:02:36.769 --> 00:02:39.906
  • praise God, onhimself, praise God?
  • 00:02:39.939 --> 00:02:43.376
  • Now, let's look at thisScripture in Joshua 1:8.
  • 00:02:43.409 --> 00:02:47.280
  • Joshua 1:8.
  • 00:02:47.313 --> 00:02:49.449
  • I wanna grow forward.
  • 00:02:49.482 --> 00:02:51.718
  • I don't wanna just wake up andall I see is the obstacles to
  • 00:02:51.751 --> 00:02:53.953
  • overcome in my broken heart.
  • 00:02:53.987 --> 00:02:56.122
  • I wanna grow forward.
  • 00:02:56.155 --> 00:02:57.824
  • How can I do that?
  • 00:02:57.857 --> 00:02:59.459
  • These are practicalthings you can do.
  • 00:02:59.492 --> 00:03:01.160
  • Verse 8, "This book of the lawshall not depart out of thy
  • 00:03:01.194 --> 00:03:03.263
  • mouth; but thou shall meditatetherein day and night, that thou
  • 00:03:03.296 --> 00:03:06.032
  • shall--that thou mayest observeto do according to all that is
  • 00:03:06.065 --> 00:03:09.836
  • written therein," there it isagain, "for then thou shall make
  • 00:03:09.869 --> 00:03:13.406
  • thy way prosperous, and thenthou shall have good success."
  • 00:03:13.439 --> 00:03:16.409
  • He says you'll have good successwhen you decide to change what
  • 00:03:16.442 --> 00:03:19.612
  • I'm thinking on.
  • 00:03:19.646 --> 00:03:21.214
  • That's what it means tomeditate, to change what I'm
  • 00:03:21.247 --> 00:03:22.782
  • pondering on, to changewhat--see, are you pondering on
  • 00:03:22.815 --> 00:03:25.752
  • the breakup?
  • 00:03:25.785 --> 00:03:27.387
  • Are you pondering on that thing?
  • 00:03:27.420 --> 00:03:28.988
  • And nobody is saying that thisis--somebody says, "Well, that's
  • 00:03:29.022 --> 00:03:33.960
  • easier said than done."
  • 00:03:33.993 --> 00:03:36.162
  • I'm not talking aboutsomething being easy.
  • 00:03:36.195 --> 00:03:37.897
  • I'm talking aboutsomething being necessary.
  • 00:03:37.930 --> 00:03:39.999
  • If you don't want the hurtto destroy your life, it is
  • 00:03:40.033 --> 00:03:41.768
  • necessary for you to make adecision to begin to ponder and
  • 00:03:41.801 --> 00:03:44.937
  • to think on--to thinkdifferently than sitting there
  • 00:03:44.971 --> 00:03:49.342
  • thinking about the breakup.
  • 00:03:49.375 --> 00:03:51.444
  • See, you're deciding to allowyour life to be destroyed, or to
  • 00:03:51.477 --> 00:03:54.681
  • allow your life to go to thepossibilities that God has set
  • 00:03:54.714 --> 00:03:58.451
  • in your future, so let's nottalk about, "Well, that's hard."
  • 00:03:58.484 --> 00:04:02.522
  • If it was easy, everybodywould have some of it.
  • 00:04:02.555 --> 00:04:06.859
  • "Well, that's too hard.
  • 00:04:06.893 --> 00:04:08.828
  • You know, I wannalose 50 pounds."
  • 00:04:08.861 --> 00:04:12.332
  • "Well, go ahead and do it."
  • 00:04:12.365 --> 00:04:13.933
  • "That's too hard."
  • 00:04:13.966 --> 00:04:16.369
  • No, that's notwhat this is about.
  • 00:04:16.402 --> 00:04:18.938
  • We're doing what's necessary,and it is necessary for you to
  • 00:04:18.971 --> 00:04:22.308
  • stop thinking about thepain of that breakup.
  • 00:04:22.342 --> 00:04:25.845
  • Look at what it says inProverbs 4:20 and 22.
  • 00:04:25.878 --> 00:04:29.716
  • Proverbs chapter 4:20 and 22.
  • 00:04:29.749 --> 00:04:32.251
  • We're getting into practicalthings, things that Taffi and I
  • 00:04:32.285 --> 00:04:35.154
  • have done for over 30 years,and to know to do those things.
  • 00:04:35.188 --> 00:04:40.760
  • No, somebody says, "Well,you know, I'm for real.
  • 00:04:40.793 --> 00:04:44.797
  • I need something real.
  • 00:04:44.831 --> 00:04:46.199
  • Don't give me no Scripture."
  • 00:04:46.232 --> 00:04:47.700
  • See, that's your problem.
  • 00:04:47.734 --> 00:04:49.102
  • You don't believe.
  • 00:04:49.135 --> 00:04:50.636
  • That's what you're saying.
  • 00:04:50.670 --> 00:04:52.138
  • What you're saying is, "I don'tbelieve God enough to trust the
  • 00:04:52.171 --> 00:04:54.040
  • promise that he made to me.
  • 00:04:54.073 --> 00:04:55.608
  • I don't believe God enough totrust that meditating in his
  • 00:04:55.641 --> 00:04:57.510
  • Word will change my life.
  • 00:04:57.543 --> 00:04:59.145
  • I don't believe God enough totrust that if I begin to
  • 00:04:59.178 --> 00:05:01.214
  • think differently--"
  • 00:05:01.247 --> 00:05:02.815
  • And what happens?
  • 00:05:02.849 --> 00:05:04.584
  • You go to the world, and youwant them to give you a solution
  • 00:05:04.617 --> 00:05:06.853
  • to get out of your problem.
  • 00:05:06.886 --> 00:05:09.455
  • And they may give you somethingto lessen the intensity of the
  • 00:05:09.489 --> 00:05:13.092
  • pain, but you're nevergonna be free from the pain.
  • 00:05:13.126 --> 00:05:15.661
  • Only a Christian can becompletely free from the pain,
  • 00:05:15.695 --> 00:05:19.165
  • because God has made a promisethat "I will heal the
  • 00:05:19.198 --> 00:05:23.002
  • broken heart."
  • 00:05:23.035 --> 00:05:26.072
  • And so, to come to him isto come to something that's
  • 00:05:26.105 --> 00:05:31.010
  • available to you: healingfrom the broken heart.
  • 00:05:31.043 --> 00:05:35.648
  • Not lessen the intensity, buttotal healing from the
  • 00:05:35.681 --> 00:05:39.085
  • broken heart.
  • 00:05:39.118 --> 00:05:40.853
  • Man, that's good news.
  • 00:05:40.887 --> 00:05:42.355
  • That is good news.
  • 00:05:42.388 --> 00:05:44.123
  • Look at Proverbs 4:20.
  • 00:05:44.157 --> 00:05:45.858
  • I'll read 20 through 22.
  • 00:05:45.892 --> 00:05:47.794
  • He says, "My son,attend to my words--"
  • 00:05:47.827 --> 00:05:50.229
  • Give attention to my Word.
  • 00:05:50.263 --> 00:05:52.265
  • Now, I need you tothink for a moment.
  • 00:05:52.298 --> 00:05:54.200
  • What are youattending to the most?
  • 00:05:54.233 --> 00:05:57.670
  • What has your attention?
  • 00:05:57.703 --> 00:05:59.305
  • Does that breakuphave your attention?
  • 00:05:59.338 --> 00:06:01.040
  • Do you find yourself, everytime somebody calls you, talking
  • 00:06:01.073 --> 00:06:03.176
  • about that tension?
  • 00:06:03.209 --> 00:06:05.077
  • "Well, Girl, you know, didyou see the Facebook page of
  • 00:06:05.111 --> 00:06:07.113
  • such-and-so, such-and-so?
  • 00:06:07.146 --> 00:06:08.915
  • Mm-hmm," talking about--you'restill--you're meditating on it.
  • 00:06:08.948 --> 00:06:10.817
  • You're talking about it, you'remeditating on it, and you just
  • 00:06:10.850 --> 00:06:12.718
  • won't let it go.
  • 00:06:12.752 --> 00:06:14.720
  • You might even dobetter just to shut up.
  • 00:06:14.754 --> 00:06:17.290
  • Don't talk aboutthe person no more.
  • 00:06:17.323 --> 00:06:19.058
  • Erase them from yoursocial media stuff.
  • 00:06:19.091 --> 00:06:21.928
  • Go forward.
  • 00:06:21.961 --> 00:06:24.797
  • See, you're treatingyourself like trash.
  • 00:06:24.831 --> 00:06:26.933
  • You're not seeing the value thatGod has put in you, and because
  • 00:06:26.966 --> 00:06:31.804
  • you don't value you, you're--andwe'll talk about this in
  • 00:06:31.838 --> 00:06:34.841
  • a moment.
  • 00:06:34.874 --> 00:06:36.175
  • I'm a little ahead of myself,but you're allowing that
  • 00:06:36.209 --> 00:06:38.077
  • circumstance to determine youridentity and your value, and you
  • 00:06:38.110 --> 00:06:40.580
  • can't do that.
  • 00:06:40.613 --> 00:06:42.415
  • You can't do that.
  • 00:06:42.448 --> 00:06:44.517
  • Now look what he says.
  • 00:06:44.550 --> 00:06:46.252
  • He says, "My son, give attentionto my words; incline thine ear
  • 00:06:46.285 --> 00:06:48.321
  • unto my sayings.
  • 00:06:48.354 --> 00:06:50.423
  • Let them words not depart fromthine eyes; keep them words in
  • 00:06:50.456 --> 00:06:54.627
  • the midst of thine heart."
  • 00:06:54.660 --> 00:06:57.129
  • Why?
  • 00:06:57.163 --> 00:06:58.698
  • "For they are life unto thosethat find them, and health to
  • 00:06:58.731 --> 00:07:01.100
  • all their flesh."
  • 00:07:01.133 --> 00:07:04.537
  • And I'm telling you when youspend time in God's Word every
  • 00:07:04.570 --> 00:07:08.808
  • day, it will bringhealthy emotions.
  • 00:07:08.841 --> 00:07:11.978
  • And somebody says, "Well, youknow, how is this gonna be a
  • 00:07:12.011 --> 00:07:14.714
  • problem with my flesh?"
  • 00:07:14.747 --> 00:07:16.482
  • Because like Taffi wastalking this morning.
  • 00:07:16.516 --> 00:07:18.451
  • When you're dis-eased, it willbring about disease, physical
  • 00:07:18.484 --> 00:07:22.421
  • disease, and a lotta--thefoundation for a lotta physical
  • 00:07:22.455 --> 00:07:26.659
  • disease is the fact thatyou're stressed out.
  • 00:07:26.692 --> 00:07:31.063
  • Your levels of cortisol is allup, and you're dis-eased, and
  • 00:07:31.097 --> 00:07:39.038
  • dis-easement emotionally willcause dis-easement in your
  • 00:07:39.071 --> 00:07:43.709
  • physical body.
  • 00:07:43.743 --> 00:07:46.512
  • So, yeah, you can get cancerfrom walking around from a
  • 00:07:46.546 --> 00:07:49.315
  • broken relationship, end updead somewhere because you're
  • 00:07:49.348 --> 00:07:55.321
  • spending all this timemeditating on somebody who don't
  • 00:07:55.354 --> 00:07:58.624
  • even wanna have nothingto do with you no more.
  • 00:07:58.658 --> 00:08:01.294
  • Let it go.
  • 00:08:01.327 --> 00:08:03.996
  • Oh, somebody says, "Dawg,Pastor, what's up?"
  • 00:08:04.030 --> 00:08:06.699
  • It's there's too muchthat God has available.
  • 00:08:06.732 --> 00:08:10.236
  • It's too much that God has madeavailable for you to be stuck in
  • 00:08:10.269 --> 00:08:13.539
  • the past, when there is somuch beauty in front of you.
  • 00:08:13.573 --> 00:08:19.045
  • And listen, look at thelessons you've learned.
  • 00:08:19.078 --> 00:08:21.614
  • Nobody ever goes--well, youshouldn't go through any trouble
  • 00:08:21.647 --> 00:08:24.584
  • without coming out with somewisdom, and you shouldn't go
  • 00:08:24.617 --> 00:08:28.020
  • through a broken relationshipwithout coming out with
  • 00:08:28.054 --> 00:08:30.723
  • some wisdom.
  • 00:08:30.756 --> 00:08:32.425
  • You ought to be a bettercandidate for somebody.
  • 00:08:32.458 --> 00:08:34.427
  • There are things that you knownow about yourself and about
  • 00:08:34.460 --> 00:08:36.929
  • relationships that'sgonna make you better.
  • 00:08:36.963 --> 00:08:40.266
  • There is a beauty in brokenness,and the beauty is that you can
  • 00:08:40.299 --> 00:08:44.870
  • end up in God's hands, andthat's what I'm trying to get
  • 00:08:44.904 --> 00:08:48.741
  • you to do.
  • 00:08:48.774 --> 00:08:50.543
  • Quit going to all othersystems and go to him.
  • 00:08:50.576 --> 00:08:53.779
  • Go to him so he can completelyheal you of your brokenness.
  • 00:08:53.813 --> 00:08:58.551
  • If you're at home say amen.
  • 00:08:58.584 --> 00:09:00.620
  • If it's just you and the dog,look at the dog and say, "Amen,
  • 00:09:00.653 --> 00:09:02.655
  • dog," and have him barking.
  • 00:09:02.688 --> 00:09:04.490
  • Now, if he barks at you,now your dog born again.
  • 00:09:04.523 --> 00:09:05.992
  • That's the Holy Ghost, amen?
  • 00:09:06.025 --> 00:09:07.360
  • [laughing]
  • 00:09:07.393 --> 00:09:08.761
  • All right, let's lookat this second area in order
  • 00:09:08.794 --> 00:09:12.865
  • to get delivered fromthis brokenness.
  • 00:09:12.898 --> 00:09:17.136
  • The second question--the firstquestion is why focusing on the
  • 00:09:17.169 --> 00:09:19.672
  • breakup is a problem.
  • 00:09:19.705 --> 00:09:21.674
  • The second issue is how brokenrelationships affect your
  • 00:09:21.707 --> 00:09:25.511
  • self-identity, how brokenrelationships affect your
  • 00:09:25.544 --> 00:09:30.716
  • self-identity.
  • 00:09:30.750 --> 00:09:32.952
  • Now, please listen to this.
  • 00:09:32.985 --> 00:09:34.387
  • Write this down.
  • 00:09:34.420 --> 00:09:35.788
  • No person, no person cannotbe the main source of
  • 00:09:35.821 --> 00:09:43.929
  • your identity.
  • 00:09:43.963 --> 00:09:46.699
  • No person cannot be--do notallow any person to be the
  • 00:09:46.732 --> 00:09:52.605
  • source of your identity.
  • 00:09:52.638 --> 00:09:55.207
  • Only Jesus can be thesource of your identity.
  • 00:09:55.241 --> 00:09:59.311
  • Only Jesus can be thesource of your self-worth.
  • 00:09:59.345 --> 00:10:02.982
  • Only Jesus can be thesource of your self-esteem.
  • 00:10:03.015 --> 00:10:06.719
  • But when you allow those peoplein that broken relationship to
  • 00:10:06.752 --> 00:10:10.589
  • be the source of your identity,the source of your self-worth,
  • 00:10:10.623 --> 00:10:13.726
  • the source of your self-esteem,Houston, we got a problem.
  • 00:10:13.759 --> 00:10:18.531
  • Only Jesus can be the source ofyour self-worth and self-esteem,
  • 00:10:18.564 --> 00:10:23.202
  • and if Jesus is not the sourceof your self-worth and your
  • 00:10:23.235 --> 00:10:26.205
  • self-esteem, if Jesus is not thesource of your self-identity,
  • 00:10:26.238 --> 00:10:30.643
  • man, your fracture isgetting bigger and bigger.
  • 00:10:30.676 --> 00:10:36.115
  • You're breaking in many pieces,because now you're having to
  • 00:10:36.148 --> 00:10:41.120
  • depend on somebody else todetermine your value, your
  • 00:10:41.153 --> 00:10:46.726
  • esteem, your worth,your identity.
  • 00:10:46.759 --> 00:10:51.363
  • Jesus has determinedour identity.
  • 00:10:51.397 --> 00:10:53.699
  • We're the righteousnessof God because of him.
  • 00:10:53.733 --> 00:10:56.135
  • We're more thanconquerors because of him.
  • 00:10:56.168 --> 00:10:58.304
  • I'm glad he's the one thatdetermines my identity.
  • 00:10:58.337 --> 00:11:01.807
  • I'm glad he's the one thatshows me how valuable I am.
  • 00:11:01.841 --> 00:11:04.643
  • I'm glad he's the onethat shows me my worth.
  • 00:11:04.677 --> 00:11:08.114
  • No man should do that.
  • 00:11:08.147 --> 00:11:11.016
  • Nobody in your life--nowoman should do that.
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:13.252
  • No relationship should do that.
  • 00:11:13.285 --> 00:11:15.588
  • You're worth something to God.
  • 00:11:15.621 --> 00:11:17.323
  • You're accepted byGod and the beloved.
  • 00:11:17.356 --> 00:11:20.593
  • You're God's beloved and insome cases you may have to get
  • 00:11:20.626 --> 00:11:24.130
  • yourself and say, "Listen--"
  • 00:11:24.163 --> 00:11:26.499
  • You know, 'cause in somerelationships people make you
  • 00:11:26.532 --> 00:11:28.400
  • feel like--you know, they makeyou feel so worthless, so cheap.
  • 00:11:28.434 --> 00:11:33.773
  • They make you feel like they'rethe only ones that you can
  • 00:11:33.806 --> 00:11:37.676
  • be with.
  • 00:11:37.710 --> 00:11:40.279
  • You know, they'll spend timejust beating you up, and they'll
  • 00:11:40.312 --> 00:11:43.682
  • spend time telling you how awfulyou are, and they'll spend time
  • 00:11:43.716 --> 00:11:46.285
  • manipulating you.
  • 00:11:46.318 --> 00:11:47.820
  • They'll spend time, you know,trying to make you feel like
  • 00:11:47.853 --> 00:11:49.922
  • you're the source of all theproblems, and you're not this,
  • 00:11:49.955 --> 00:11:53.392
  • and do little things like takea little extra skin and always
  • 00:11:53.425 --> 00:11:56.729
  • picking at that.
  • 00:11:56.762 --> 00:11:58.330
  • "Look at that.
  • 00:11:58.364 --> 00:11:59.732
  • You're getting fat," andyou ain't but 98 pounds.
  • 00:11:59.765 --> 00:12:01.534
  • And you're gonna let that personhave that much power over you,
  • 00:12:01.567 --> 00:12:04.470
  • when you are anointed and calledby God, when you are accepted by
  • 00:12:04.503 --> 00:12:09.742
  • God, when you are God's beloved.
  • 00:12:09.775 --> 00:12:12.378
  • Don't allow yourself to beabused by that kinda person,
  • 00:12:12.411 --> 00:12:15.915
  • because it takes a broken personto cause that kind of abuse.
  • 00:12:15.948 --> 00:12:19.685
  • It takes a person with afracture to cause that kind
  • 00:12:19.718 --> 00:12:22.421
  • of abuse.
  • 00:12:22.454 --> 00:12:24.590
  • The only reason they're makingyou feel worthless is 'cause
  • 00:12:24.623 --> 00:12:26.458
  • they feel worthless.
  • 00:12:26.492 --> 00:12:28.727
  • The only reason that they try todevalue you is 'cause they feel
  • 00:12:28.761 --> 00:12:31.030
  • devalued, and you can't even getyourself to a place where--you
  • 00:12:31.063 --> 00:12:35.668
  • know, the relationship broke up,and you're like--start beating
  • 00:12:35.701 --> 00:12:38.671
  • yourself up.
  • 00:12:38.704 --> 00:12:40.372
  • "Oh, something mustbe wrong with me.
  • 00:12:40.406 --> 00:12:42.174
  • I'm always choosingthe wrong person.
  • 00:12:42.208 --> 00:12:44.076
  • O God, why am I alwayschoosing the wrong person?"
  • 00:12:44.109 --> 00:12:46.846
  • I don't think that's it at all.
  • 00:12:46.879 --> 00:12:48.714
  • I think you choose to ignore thesignals at the very beginning.
  • 00:12:48.747 --> 00:12:52.017
  • I think you continue tochoose to ignore the signals.
  • 00:12:52.051 --> 00:12:55.221
  • I think that God allow signalsto be seen, and you just don't
  • 00:12:55.254 --> 00:12:58.824
  • pay attention to 'em.
  • 00:12:58.858 --> 00:13:00.626
  • You're so hungry to have aloving relationship that you're
  • 00:13:00.659 --> 00:13:05.364
  • not paying attentionthis is not gonna work.
  • 00:13:05.397 --> 00:13:08.234
  • There's a huge signal, giganticsign, and you don't pay
  • 00:13:08.267 --> 00:13:11.470
  • attention to it, a gigantic signthat if this guy is critical all
  • 00:13:11.503 --> 00:13:15.841
  • the time maybe you need to payattention to that, a gigantic
  • 00:13:15.875 --> 00:13:18.777
  • sign that, you know, if you'rethe only one that's, you know,
  • 00:13:18.811 --> 00:13:22.748
  • giving in that relationship,and you're benefiting.
  • 00:13:22.781 --> 00:13:26.886
  • You're the only one thatsays, "You know what?
  • 00:13:26.919 --> 00:13:29.355
  • I'm the one that'salways giving.
  • 00:13:29.388 --> 00:13:31.490
  • I'm the one that's--"
  • 00:13:31.523 --> 00:13:33.392
  • What am I trying to say?
  • 00:13:33.425 --> 00:13:35.127
  • People in those relationships,they give the advantage versus
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:39.398
  • taking the advantage.
  • 00:13:39.431 --> 00:13:41.600
  • Yeah, you're the one that'salways giving the advantage and
  • 00:13:41.634 --> 00:13:44.770
  • that other person never, evereven attempts to try to give you
  • 00:13:44.803 --> 00:13:47.706
  • the advantage.
  • 00:13:47.740 --> 00:13:49.308
  • That's a toxic relationship.
  • 00:13:49.341 --> 00:13:50.776
  • That's a sign and a signal,someone that's always got to be
  • 00:13:50.809 --> 00:13:53.379
  • right, and they're asking youto compromise, but they're not
  • 00:13:53.412 --> 00:13:57.483
  • doing the same.
  • 00:13:57.516 --> 00:13:59.051
  • That's a signal and what I'msaying is start paying attention
  • 00:13:59.084 --> 00:14:04.156
  • to the signals.
  • 00:14:04.189 --> 00:14:06.492
  • Start looking at the signals.
  • 00:14:06.525 --> 00:14:08.460
  • He comes, and y'all finally hada first date, and he talking
  • 00:14:08.494 --> 00:14:10.362
  • about, "You know,can you loan me $10?"
  • 00:14:10.396 --> 00:14:12.431
  • Ha!
  • 00:14:12.464 --> 00:14:14.366
  • That's a signal.
  • 00:14:14.400 --> 00:14:16.335
  • That's a sign.
  • 00:14:16.368 --> 00:14:18.304
  • No, but you wanna ignore thesign and focus on the curls and,
  • 00:14:18.337 --> 00:14:21.607
  • "Oh, he fine, and hecute," and all that.
  • 00:14:21.640 --> 00:14:24.276
  • That gets ugly really, reallyquick when it starts devaluing
  • 00:14:24.310 --> 00:14:30.249
  • who you are.
  • 00:14:30.282 --> 00:14:32.117
  • You got to notice whensomething is toxic.
  • 00:14:32.151 --> 00:14:35.888
  • You've got to notice whensomething is plastic, and so
  • 00:14:35.921 --> 00:14:40.092
  • don't let other people defineyour worth and your value and
  • 00:14:40.125 --> 00:14:45.531
  • your esteem.
  • 00:14:45.564 --> 00:14:47.633
  • If you're shattered andheartbroken because of this
  • 00:14:47.666 --> 00:14:51.103
  • breakup, your identity isset on the wrong thing.
  • 00:14:51.136 --> 00:14:58.477
  • If you're shattered,brokenhearted because of this
  • 00:14:58.510 --> 00:15:01.714
  • breakup, your identity isset on the wrong thing.
  • 00:15:01.747 --> 00:15:06.285
  • Your self-worth, if that's thecase, is set on man and not on
  • 00:15:06.318 --> 00:15:11.690
  • God, and you do not want yourself-worth to be set on a man,
  • 00:15:11.724 --> 00:15:18.130
  • to be set on a relationship.
  • 00:15:18.163 --> 00:15:20.833
  • My self-worth is set on God.
  • 00:15:20.866 --> 00:15:24.570
  • Everything about how I feelabout myself, it's on God, man,
  • 00:15:24.603 --> 00:15:28.040
  • and when you do that you'regonna find peace, man.
  • 00:15:28.073 --> 00:15:33.345
  • You're gonna find peace,and you're gonna find joy.
  • 00:15:33.379 --> 00:15:36.115
  • You're gonna findhealthy emotions.
  • 00:15:36.148 --> 00:15:38.450
  • All those things are gonnahappen because it's not set
  • 00:15:38.484 --> 00:15:40.919
  • on man.
  • 00:15:40.953 --> 00:15:42.688
  • And there are so manyrelationships where their
  • 00:15:42.721 --> 00:15:45.357
  • identity is set on one another.
  • 00:15:45.391 --> 00:15:48.927
  • Nobody should have a right tohave that kinda power in
  • 00:15:48.961 --> 00:15:52.865
  • your life.
  • 00:15:52.898 --> 00:15:55.167
  • My identity is on God.
  • 00:15:55.200 --> 00:15:56.935
  • My identity is not set andbased on my circumstances.
  • 00:15:56.969 --> 00:15:59.405
  • My identity is not set andbased on broken relationships
  • 00:15:59.438 --> 00:16:02.508
  • or brokenness.
  • 00:16:02.541 --> 00:16:04.309
  • My identity is notset based on man.
  • 00:16:04.343 --> 00:16:07.579
  • My identity is set--it is basedon my relationship with Jesus
  • 00:16:07.613 --> 00:16:11.483
  • Christ, amen?
  • 00:16:11.517 --> 00:16:14.686
  • Let's look at the third one.
  • 00:16:14.720 --> 00:16:17.923
  • Well, what do you do whenGod doesn't restore a
  • 00:16:17.956 --> 00:16:21.994
  • broken relationship?
  • 00:16:22.027 --> 00:16:24.663
  • This is a big one here.
  • 00:16:24.696 --> 00:16:26.698
  • What do you do whenGod doesn't restore it?
  • 00:16:26.732 --> 00:16:29.368
  • And this is over years seeingpeople, oh, trying to believe
  • 00:16:29.401 --> 00:16:35.674
  • for that relationship, andI've seen some relationships
  • 00:16:35.707 --> 00:16:38.043
  • restored, and they do great.
  • 00:16:38.077 --> 00:16:40.913
  • Here's another KennyFuller special.
  • 00:16:40.946 --> 00:16:42.981
  • You know, somebody told you thatthe grass was greener on the
  • 00:16:43.015 --> 00:16:45.617
  • other side, but they forgot totell you it was AstroTurf, and
  • 00:16:45.651 --> 00:16:49.655
  • that's--a lotta peoplehave made that mistake.
  • 00:16:49.688 --> 00:16:53.459
  • And in some of those cases,you know, praise God.
  • 00:16:53.492 --> 00:16:56.829
  • God is about restoration.
  • 00:16:56.862 --> 00:16:58.630
  • He restored us and all thosekinda things, but what if he
  • 00:16:58.664 --> 00:17:00.999
  • doesn't restore a relationship?
  • 00:17:01.033 --> 00:17:03.168
  • There are some stories inthe Bible where--you know, I
  • 00:17:03.202 --> 00:17:05.737
  • remember Samuel wanted to havethis relationship, and God told
  • 00:17:05.771 --> 00:17:08.107
  • him, "No, you've been called andset aside to do this
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:10.776
  • particular thing."
  • 00:17:10.809 --> 00:17:12.778
  • And, I mean, he fell in love,and yet it did not happen.
  • 00:17:12.811 --> 00:17:16.815
  • Listen to this very carefully.
  • 00:17:16.849 --> 00:17:19.952
  • You've gotta accept thatthis breakup happened.
  • 00:17:19.985 --> 00:17:26.091
  • It happened.
  • 00:17:26.125 --> 00:17:28.393
  • You need to quitfooling yourself.
  • 00:17:28.427 --> 00:17:30.395
  • It happened.
  • 00:17:30.429 --> 00:17:32.631
  • It's not there anymore.
  • 00:17:32.664 --> 00:17:34.800
  • You were rejected, and I thinksomething so powerful happens
  • 00:17:34.833 --> 00:17:40.772
  • when you just finally acceptthis happened, instead of going
  • 00:17:40.806 --> 00:17:46.478
  • around--it's like if I fall downthe steps and on the way down
  • 00:17:46.512 --> 00:17:50.382
  • I'm like, "Youknow, I didn't fall.
  • 00:17:50.415 --> 00:17:52.784
  • I didn't fall.
  • 00:17:52.818 --> 00:17:54.586
  • I didn't fall."
  • 00:17:54.620 --> 00:17:56.722
  • I fell.
  • 00:17:56.755 --> 00:17:58.724
  • It happened, and you've gotto accept that the
  • 00:17:58.757 --> 00:18:01.059
  • breakup happened.
  • 00:18:01.093 --> 00:18:03.162
  • You've gotta accept that.
  • 00:18:03.195 --> 00:18:05.230
  • You've got to accept all thegood and the bad that God allows
  • 00:18:05.264 --> 00:18:07.332
  • into your life, includingbroken relationships.
  • 00:18:07.366 --> 00:18:12.104
  • I've learned that.
  • 00:18:12.137 --> 00:18:14.339
  • I've learned that.
  • 00:18:14.373 --> 00:18:16.308
  • That when things happen in mylife, good or bad, I've learned
  • 00:18:16.341 --> 00:18:19.378
  • how to be content.
  • 00:18:19.411 --> 00:18:21.780
  • I've learned how to besatisfied when it's good.
  • 00:18:21.813 --> 00:18:24.516
  • I learned how to be satisfiedwhen it's bad, but I'm
  • 00:18:24.550 --> 00:18:27.953
  • not complacent.
  • 00:18:27.986 --> 00:18:29.788
  • I'm not gonna stop trying toimprove, but I can be satisfied
  • 00:18:29.821 --> 00:18:32.891
  • while I'm on my wayto the next level.
  • 00:18:32.925 --> 00:18:35.694
  • Complacency is an individualwho refuses to improve.
  • 00:18:35.727 --> 00:18:41.366
  • They become complacent, butbeing a content person is a
  • 00:18:41.400 --> 00:18:46.405
  • person that says, "I can besatisfied and I can be happy and
  • 00:18:46.438 --> 00:18:49.541
  • I can be at ease no matter thecircumstance, while I'm on my
  • 00:18:49.575 --> 00:18:53.412
  • way to the next level."
  • 00:18:53.445 --> 00:18:56.014
  • That's what I'm talking about.
  • 00:18:56.048 --> 00:18:58.050
  • I'm talking about you'vegot to learn contentment.
  • 00:18:58.083 --> 00:19:00.586
  • The Bible says godliness withcontentment will produce
  • 00:19:00.619 --> 00:19:03.789
  • great gain.
  • 00:19:03.822 --> 00:19:06.358
  • Paul demonstrated this inPhilippians chapter 4, where
  • 00:19:06.391 --> 00:19:09.061
  • Paul said, "You know, I'velearned how to be content when
  • 00:19:09.094 --> 00:19:12.097
  • I'm hungry, when I'm full.
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:14.733
  • I learned how to be contentin good situations, in
  • 00:19:14.766 --> 00:19:16.602
  • bad situations."
  • 00:19:16.635 --> 00:19:18.937
  • In other words, Paul is, like,saying, "Regardless of the
  • 00:19:18.971 --> 00:19:21.206
  • situation, I can be content."
  • 00:19:21.240 --> 00:19:23.242
  • Why?
  • 00:19:23.275 --> 00:19:25.544
  • "Because I trust God."
  • 00:19:25.577 --> 00:19:27.713
  • Why?
  • 00:19:27.746 --> 00:19:29.648
  • "Because I know I can doall things through God which
  • 00:19:29.681 --> 00:19:31.817
  • strengthens me."
  • 00:19:31.850 --> 00:19:33.685
  • I can be satisfied, happy,and at ease not because of the
  • 00:19:33.719 --> 00:19:35.754
  • relationship that was broken,but I am satisfied and at ease
  • 00:19:35.787 --> 00:19:38.390
  • because I have a God who'llnever leave me nor forsake me,
  • 00:19:38.423 --> 00:19:41.927
  • because I have a God who shallsupply all of my needs, because
  • 00:19:41.960 --> 00:19:44.796
  • I can do all things throughChrist which strengthens me.
  • 00:19:44.830 --> 00:19:48.533
  • And I can be content knowingthat I'm gonna go to the next
  • 00:19:48.567 --> 00:19:52.337
  • level, and so I'm okay withaccepting the good and the bad.
  • 00:19:52.371 --> 00:19:55.741
  • You know, when the pandemichit, I said to God, I was like,
  • 00:19:55.774 --> 00:20:00.379
  • "Well, I don't know what todo, but I'm trusting you.
  • 00:20:00.412 --> 00:20:04.349
  • And if this ministry is to stillhave impact and if you want this
  • 00:20:04.383 --> 00:20:08.787
  • ministry to stillexist, praise God.
  • 00:20:08.820 --> 00:20:12.658
  • But if you shut itdown, praise God."
  • 00:20:12.691 --> 00:20:17.296
  • Because you know what?
  • 00:20:17.329 --> 00:20:18.997
  • I still have arelationship with him.
  • 00:20:19.031 --> 00:20:21.266
  • I got a relationship withhim when World Changers is
  • 00:20:21.300 --> 00:20:24.436
  • functioning, and I have arelationship with him if it were
  • 00:20:24.469 --> 00:20:27.439
  • to shut down.
  • 00:20:27.472 --> 00:20:31.643
  • I'd become content because Iknow I'm going to another level,
  • 00:20:31.677 --> 00:20:34.946
  • and what people have got to do,you've got--you can't get mad at
  • 00:20:34.980 --> 00:20:38.617
  • God when something bad happens.
  • 00:20:38.650 --> 00:20:42.788
  • You know, if somethinggood happens, great.
  • 00:20:42.821 --> 00:20:44.723
  • But if something bad happens,it still gotta be great.
  • 00:20:44.756 --> 00:20:48.260
  • Until you can get to thatpoint, you're always gonna be a
  • 00:20:48.293 --> 00:20:50.796
  • candidate to be broken and hurt.
  • 00:20:50.829 --> 00:20:53.932
  • You gotta come to a place inyour life where, "I'm content."
  • 00:20:53.965 --> 00:20:57.235
  • You know what you're saying?
  • 00:20:57.269 --> 00:20:59.204
  • You're like, "God, I trust you,that's why I'm content.
  • 00:20:59.237 --> 00:21:01.106
  • It's 'cause of you,that's why I'm content."
  • 00:21:01.139 --> 00:21:04.142
  • If a relationship breaks up,your attitude should be, "Well,
  • 00:21:04.176 --> 00:21:07.546
  • God must not wanted me tohave that relationship."
  • 00:21:07.579 --> 00:21:12.017
  • And if it worked out,"Well, praise God.
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:14.553
  • I'm grateful for thatrelationship," but I can't have
  • 00:21:14.586 --> 00:21:17.456
  • the brokenness of thatrelationship to destroy my
  • 00:21:17.489 --> 00:21:20.192
  • whole life.
  • 00:21:20.225 --> 00:21:22.594
  • I'm not gonna do that.
  • 00:21:22.627 --> 00:21:24.329
  • I'm not gonna walk aroundin pain my whole life.
  • 00:21:24.363 --> 00:21:26.231
  • I'm not gonna walk around andrehearsing the same old hurt
  • 00:21:26.264 --> 00:21:28.934
  • over and over again.
  • 00:21:28.967 --> 00:21:30.769
  • "Oh, they rejected me.
  • 00:21:30.802 --> 00:21:32.437
  • Oh, they don't love me.
  • 00:21:32.471 --> 00:21:34.106
  • Oh, they saidthese ugly things."
  • 00:21:34.139 --> 00:21:36.641
  • Oh, and your mind is justmeditating on all of the trauma
  • 00:21:36.675 --> 00:21:40.245
  • of that relationship.
  • 00:21:40.278 --> 00:21:44.950
  • "No, I still have you, God.
  • 00:21:44.983 --> 00:21:48.754
  • Oh, I still have you.
  • 00:21:48.787 --> 00:21:50.889
  • I got you, God, and you got me,and we'll just go on to the
  • 00:21:50.922 --> 00:21:55.093
  • next place."
  • 00:21:55.127 --> 00:21:57.796
  • I was working out with PastorKen and was telling him about
  • 00:21:57.829 --> 00:22:00.665
  • this thing on trust, and hesaid, "You remember when Job
  • 00:22:00.699 --> 00:22:03.268
  • said, 'Though you slayme, yet will I trust you?'"
  • 00:22:03.301 --> 00:22:07.506
  • And I'm not saying God slayedhim or God had anything to do
  • 00:22:07.539 --> 00:22:10.609
  • with the problems he had, butJob's attitude was, "It
  • 00:22:10.642 --> 00:22:13.278
  • doesn't matter.
  • 00:22:13.311 --> 00:22:14.913
  • Though you slay me,I'm gonna trust you."
  • 00:22:14.946 --> 00:22:16.815
  • Job's attitude was,"My kids are dead.
  • 00:22:16.848 --> 00:22:18.650
  • My livelihood is gone.
  • 00:22:18.683 --> 00:22:20.152
  • Everything's messed up.
  • 00:22:20.185 --> 00:22:21.853
  • I'm gonna shave my head,and I'm gonna worship you."
  • 00:22:21.887 --> 00:22:24.790
  • I think that's the placewhere God's calling us.
  • 00:22:24.823 --> 00:22:27.392
  • I mean, what are those thingsthat are motivating you to
  • 00:22:27.426 --> 00:22:30.195
  • serve God?
  • 00:22:30.228 --> 00:22:31.863
  • And if they were taken away,would you still serve him?
  • 00:22:31.897 --> 00:22:33.965
  • What are those things thatcauses you to be a Christian?
  • 00:22:33.999 --> 00:22:36.501
  • And if it was taken away,would you still be a Christian?
  • 00:22:36.535 --> 00:22:40.071
  • People have the nerve, "Well,God, I need you to bless me now.
  • 00:22:40.105 --> 00:22:44.776
  • If you don't bless me now, thenI won't serve you no more."
  • 00:22:44.810 --> 00:22:47.078
  • You got the problem, not God.
  • 00:22:47.112 --> 00:22:48.547
  • God doesn't needyou to be who he is.
  • 00:22:48.580 --> 00:22:50.315
  • You do need God to be who youare, and I made my mind up, "I'm
  • 00:22:50.348 --> 00:22:55.654
  • gonna serve you anyway, God.
  • 00:22:55.687 --> 00:22:58.223
  • I'm gonna serve you when peopleare saying good things about me
  • 00:22:58.256 --> 00:23:01.059
  • or when they're sayingbad things about me."
  • 00:23:01.092 --> 00:23:02.494
  • It doesn't matter.
  • 00:23:02.527 --> 00:23:03.962
  • I've already decided.
  • 00:23:03.995 --> 00:23:05.897
  • I know where my worth is.
  • 00:23:05.931 --> 00:23:07.432
  • I know where my identity is.
  • 00:23:07.466 --> 00:23:09.301
  • I'm not gonna hold on tosomething that happened in
  • 00:23:09.334 --> 00:23:11.903
  • the past.
  • 00:23:11.937 --> 00:23:13.371
  • It was hurtful.
  • 00:23:13.405 --> 00:23:15.040
  • It was painful.
  • 00:23:15.073 --> 00:23:16.708
  • You know, I rememberwhen my father died.
  • 00:23:16.741 --> 00:23:18.677
  • It was like, "Wow.
  • 00:23:18.710 --> 00:23:20.846
  • I've got to go forward."
  • 00:23:20.879 --> 00:23:22.848
  • That was the first importantperson in my life that close
  • 00:23:22.881 --> 00:23:25.650
  • that had passed, and I'm--it waslike I couldn't--I tried to get
  • 00:23:25.684 --> 00:23:30.088
  • away from it, but I just--I'dhave dreams, and I'd pull up in
  • 00:23:30.121 --> 00:23:33.291
  • the carport, and I'dbreak down crying.
  • 00:23:33.325 --> 00:23:35.193
  • And tears would shed when I'mon the expressway, and I went to
  • 00:23:35.227 --> 00:23:39.164
  • his grave--and imagine going tothe grave, and, you know, I'm a
  • 00:23:39.197 --> 00:23:44.236
  • junior, so there'smy name there.
  • 00:23:44.269 --> 00:23:47.072
  • And I told him, I said,"Listen, you were great.
  • 00:23:47.105 --> 00:23:50.208
  • You're awesome.
  • 00:23:50.242 --> 00:23:51.610
  • I love you.
  • 00:23:51.643 --> 00:23:53.078
  • I appreciate you.
  • 00:23:53.111 --> 00:23:54.579
  • Glad you got saved.
  • 00:23:54.613 --> 00:23:56.047
  • I'll see you, but I ain't nevercoming back here no more."
  • 00:23:56.081 --> 00:23:58.183
  • I said, "I gotta go forward.
  • 00:23:58.216 --> 00:24:00.118
  • I got to go forward."
  • 00:24:00.151 --> 00:24:01.887
  • When Jesus was in the Garden ofGethsemane and he began to sweat
  • 00:24:01.920 --> 00:24:03.688
  • blood because he was taking onthe whole sins of the world, the
  • 00:24:03.722 --> 00:24:09.628
  • Bible says thatstress hit his body.
  • 00:24:09.661 --> 00:24:12.330
  • He was so stressed out that hebegan to shed blood, but Jesus
  • 00:24:12.364 --> 00:24:17.269
  • said that he went forward.
  • 00:24:17.302 --> 00:24:20.805
  • And I'm saying to some of you,you've never sweat blood before,
  • 00:24:20.839 --> 00:24:23.675
  • but I'm saying it istime to go forward, okay?
