  • - JOEL OSTEEN: WELL,
  • 00:00:11.090 --> 00:00:11.230
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:00:11.230 --> 00:00:12.210
  • IT'S A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:00:12.210 --> 00:00:13.220
  • HOMES, AND IF YOU'RE EVER
  • 00:00:13.220 --> 00:00:15.000
  • IN OUR AREA, PLEASE STOP BY,
  • 00:00:15.000 --> 00:00:16.250
  • BE A PART OF ONE
  • 00:00:16.250 --> 00:00:17.280
  • OF OUR SERVICES.
  • 00:00:17.280 --> 00:00:19.040
  • I PROMISE YOU, WE'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:00:19.040 --> 00:00:20.130
  • FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
  • 00:00:20.130 --> 00:00:22.140
  • BUT I LIKE TO START WITH
  • 00:00:22.140 --> 00:00:23.080
  • SOMETHING FUNNY, AND I HEARD
  • 00:00:23.080 --> 00:00:24.140
  • ABOUT THIS PASTOR.
  • 00:00:24.140 --> 00:00:25.280
  • HE BOUGHT A NEW HORSE.
  • 00:00:25.280 --> 00:00:27.170
  • HE TRAINED IT TO RESPOND TO,
  • 00:00:27.170 --> 00:00:29.030
  • "PRAISE THE LORD," MEANING,
  • 00:00:29.030 --> 00:00:30.160
  • "GIDDY UP," AND,
  • 00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:31.230
  • "HALLELUJAH," MEANING,
  • 00:00:31.230 --> 00:00:32.270
  • "WHOA," AND EVERY TIME HE
  • 00:00:32.270 --> 00:00:34.120
  • SAID, "PRAISE THE LORD," THE
  • 00:00:34.120 --> 00:00:35.150
  • HORSE WOULD TAKE OFF RUNNING.
  • 00:00:35.150 --> 00:00:36.220
  • WHEN HE SAID, "HALLELUJAH,"
  • 00:00:36.220 --> 00:00:38.010
  • IT WOULD QUICKLY STOP.
  • 00:00:38.010 --> 00:00:39.280
  • ONE DAY, HE WAS OUT RIDING,
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:41.130
  • AND THE HORSE GOT SPOOKED,
  • 00:00:41.130 --> 00:00:42.210
  • AND TOOK OFF STRAIGHT TOWARD
  • 00:00:42.210 --> 00:00:44.050
  • A CLIFF GOING FULL BLAST.
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:47.000
  • IN THE PANIC, HE COULDN'T
  • 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:48.060
  • REMEMBER WHAT HE HAD TAUGHT
  • 00:00:48.060 --> 00:00:49.100
  • HIS HORSE.
  • 00:00:49.100 --> 00:00:50.150
  • HE SAID, "BLESS GOD, GLORY,
  • 00:00:50.150 --> 00:00:51.120
  • AMEN," NOTHING WORKED.
  • 00:00:51.120 --> 00:00:52.270
  • AT THE LAST SECOND, HE
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:54.040
  • SHOUTED, "HALLELUJAH."
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:56.040
  • THE HORSE CAME TO A
  • 00:00:56.040 --> 00:00:56.270
  • SCREECHING HALT INCHES BEFORE
  • 00:00:56.270 --> 00:00:58.100
  • THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF.
  • 00:00:58.100 --> 00:01:00.140
  • HE BREATHED A SIGH OF RELIEF
  • 00:01:00.140 --> 00:01:01.130
  • AND SAID, "PRAISE THE LORD."
  • 00:01:01.280 --> 00:01:04.280
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT:
  • 00:01:04.280 --> 00:01:05.290
  • "THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:06.290
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:06.290 --> 00:01:09.030
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:09.030 --> 00:01:10.290
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN
  • 00:01:10.290 --> 00:01:12.010
  • DO.
  • 00:01:12.010 --> 00:01:13.070
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:14.090
  • WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:14.090 --> 00:01:15.260
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS MY MIND IS
  • 00:01:15.260 --> 00:01:17.140
  • ALERT, MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE,
  • 00:01:17.140 --> 00:01:20.030
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME,
  • 00:01:20.030 --> 00:01:21.250
  • IN JESUS' NAME."
  • 00:01:21.250 --> 00:01:23.200
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:23.200 --> 00:01:25.220
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:25.220 --> 00:01:26.180
  • ABOUT "THE TWO YOUS."
  • 00:01:26.180 --> 00:01:29.010
  • THERE ARE TWO PEOPLE LIVING
  • 00:01:29.010 --> 00:01:30.090
  • ON THE INSIDE OF EACH ONE OF
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:32.030
  • US, THE STRONG, DISCIPLINED,
  • 00:01:32.030 --> 00:01:34.090
  • CONFIDENT YOU, AND THE WEAK,
  • 00:01:34.090 --> 00:01:36.220
  • INSECURE, COMPROMISING YOU.
  • 00:01:37.120 --> 00:01:40.120
  • THE POSITIVE, FAITH-FILLED,
  • 00:01:40.120 --> 00:01:42.030
  • BIG DREAMS YOU, AND THE
  • 00:01:42.030 --> 00:01:44.000
  • NEGATIVE, DISCOURAGED,
  • 00:01:44.000 --> 00:01:45.090
  • NOT-GOING-TO-HAPPEN YOU.
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:47.160
  • WE ALL HAVE THESE
  • 00:01:47.160 --> 00:01:48.160
  • CONTRADICTIONS,
  • 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:49.270
  • INCONSISTENCIES.
  • 00:01:49.270 --> 00:01:51.160
  • YOU'RE A GOOD PERSON.
  • 00:01:51.160 --> 00:01:52.290
  • YOU LOVE THE LORD.
  • 00:01:52.290 --> 00:01:54.090
  • MOST OF THE TIME, YOU'RE
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:55.060
  • FRIENDLY, EASYGOING, "GOOD
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:01:56.140
  • MORNING, GREAT TO SEE YOU
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:01:58.130
  • TODAY."
  • 00:01:58.130 --> 00:01:59.290
  • BUT IF SOMEONE PUSHES THE
  • 00:01:59.290 --> 00:02:01.070
  • WRONG BUTTONS, IF THEY'RE
  • 00:02:01.070 --> 00:02:02.240
  • RUDE, HARSH, THE OTHER YOU
  • 00:02:02.240 --> 00:02:04.230
  • CAN COME OUT.
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:06.250
  • HE MAY HAVE BEEN HIDDEN
  • 00:02:06.250 --> 00:02:07.190
  • FOR 2 MONTHS.
  • 00:02:07.190 --> 00:02:08.230
  • YOU THOUGHT HE WAS
  • 00:02:08.230 --> 00:02:09.240
  • FINALLY GONE, BUT HE WAS
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:10.240
  • STILL IN THERE.
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:12.160
  • THERE'S A BATTLE CONSTANTLY
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:13.280
  • TAKING PLACE BETWEEN THE TWO
  • 00:02:13.280 --> 00:02:15.180
  • YOUS.
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:17.050
  • THE SCRIPTURE CALLS IT,
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:18.020
  • "BETWEEN THE FLESH AND THE
  • 00:02:18.020 --> 00:02:19.110
  • SPIRIT," BETWEEN OUR OLD
  • 00:02:19.110 --> 00:02:21.000
  • CARNAL NATURE, GIVING INTO
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:23.210
  • OUR FEELINGS, COMPROMISING,
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:26.040
  • TELLING SOMEBODY OFF, AND THE
  • 00:02:26.040 --> 00:02:27.250
  • NEW REDEEMED NATURE, AND WHEN
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:30.120
  • YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST, PAUL
  • 00:02:30.120 --> 00:02:31.230
  • SAID IN CORINTHIANS, "YOU
  • 00:02:31.230 --> 00:02:33.150
  • BECAME A NEW CREATION.
  • 00:02:33.150 --> 00:02:36.150
  • OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY,"
  • 00:02:36.150 --> 00:02:38.220
  • AND WE CELEBRATE THAT.
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:39.290
  • THAT'S GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:02:39.290 --> 00:02:41.050
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED.
  • 00:02:41.050 --> 00:02:42.120
  • THE OLD MAN MAY BE DEAD, BUT
  • 00:02:42.120 --> 00:02:43.250
  • SOMETIMES HE GETS
  • 00:02:43.250 --> 00:02:45.180
  • RESURRECTED.
  • 00:02:45.180 --> 00:02:47.090
  • HE MAY HAVE DIED, BUT DON'T
  • 00:02:47.090 --> 00:02:48.170
  • KID YOURSELF, HE CAN GET BACK
  • 00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:49.280
  • UP AGAIN.
  • 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:51.180
  • WE SEE THIS IN THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:02:53.030
  • WITH PETER.
  • 00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:54.220
  • PETER WAS A FAITHFUL
  • 00:02:54.220 --> 00:02:56.020
  • DISCIPLE, A CLOSE FRIEND OF
  • 00:02:56.020 --> 00:02:58.030
  • JESUS, STRONG, COMMITTED.
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:03:00.120
  • HIS NAME EVEN MEANS "ROCK."
  • 00:03:00.120 --> 00:03:03.120
  • JESUS SAID TO HIM, "YOU ARE
  • 00:03:03.120 --> 00:03:04.220
  • PETER, AND UPON THIS ROCK I
  • 00:03:04.220 --> 00:03:05.290
  • WILL BUILD MY CHURCH."
  • 00:03:05.290 --> 00:03:08.080
  • NOBODY GOD HAD MORE
  • 00:03:08.080 --> 00:03:09.150
  • CONFIDENCE IN THAN PETER.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:11.260
  • WHEN THE SOLDIERS CAME TO
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:13.050
  • ARREST JESUS, PETER WAS SO
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:14.230
  • LOYAL, SO DETERMINED TO STAND
  • 00:03:14.230 --> 00:03:16.210
  • UP FOR HIM, HE PULLED HIS
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:18.130
  • SWORD OUT AND CUT OFF ONE OF
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:20.010
  • THE SOLDIER'S EARS.
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.260
  • HE WAS READY TO DIE DEFENDING
  • 00:03:21.260 --> 00:03:23.010
  • CHRIST.
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:24.250
  • THAT WAS THE STRONG PETER,
  • 00:03:24.250 --> 00:03:25.290
  • THE FAITHFUL PETER, THE ROCK.
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:27.150
  • THAT WOULD BE GREAT IF THAT
  • 00:03:27.150 --> 00:03:29.130
  • WAS THE ONLY PETER, BUT THERE
  • 00:03:29.130 --> 00:03:31.200
  • WAS ANOTHER PETER IN THERE
  • 00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:33.040
  • THAT CAME OUT FROM TIME TO
  • 00:03:33.040 --> 00:03:34.210
  • TIME.
  • 00:03:34.210 --> 00:03:36.020
  • WHEN THEY ARRESTED JESUS AND
  • 00:03:36.020 --> 00:03:37.080
  • TOOK HIM TO THE HIGH PRIEST,
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:38.240
  • PETER FOLLOWED ALONG AND HE
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:40.040
  • WAS STANDING OUTSIDE THE
  • 00:03:40.040 --> 00:03:41.130
  • HOUSE, IN THE COURTYARD,
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:43.020
  • WARMING HIMSELF BY THE FIRE,
  • 00:03:43.020 --> 00:03:44.220
  • AND THERE WERE GUARDS ALL
  • 00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:46.060
  • AROUND.
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:47.170
  • A YOUNG LADY SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:48.140
  • "AREN'T YOU ONE OF JESUS'
  • 00:03:48.140 --> 00:03:49.230
  • DISCIPLES?"
  • 00:03:49.230 --> 00:03:51.230
  • HE SAID, "NO, WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:03:51.230 --> 00:03:53.000
  • TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:03:53.000 --> 00:03:54.090
  • I DON'T KNOW HIM."
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:03:55.200
  • ANOTHER PERSON CAME UP AND
  • 00:03:55.200 --> 00:03:56.240
  • SAID, "ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE
  • 00:03:56.240 --> 00:03:58.080
  • NOT ONE OF HIS DISCIPLES?"
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:03:59.280
  • HE SAID IT AGAIN, "I'M
  • 00:03:59.280 --> 00:04:01.110
  • TELLING YOU, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:04:01.110 --> 00:04:02.100
  • HIM."
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:03.170
  • THEN SOMEONE CAME OUT OF THE
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:04.120
  • HOUSE.
  • 00:04:04.120 --> 00:04:05.140
  • THEY SAID, "I KNOW YOU'RE HIS
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:06.230
  • DISCIPLE.
  • 00:04:06.230 --> 00:04:08.080
  • I SAW YOU THERE WHEN WE
  • 00:04:08.080 --> 00:04:09.060
  • ARRESTED HIM."
  • 00:04:09.060 --> 00:04:10.260
  • THIS TIME, PETER GOT ANGRY.
  • 00:04:10.260 --> 00:04:12.020
  • HE STARTED CURSING, SWEARING,
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:14.120
  • "I DON'T KNOW THE MAN."
  • 00:04:14.120 --> 00:04:16.280
  • JUST A LITTLE EARLIER, HE WAS
  • 00:04:16.280 --> 00:04:18.180
  • DEFENDING JESUS.
  • 00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:20.170
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:21.240
  • THE OTHER PETER CAME OUT.
  • 00:04:21.240 --> 00:04:23.230
  • THERE WERE TWO PETERS IN
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:25.000
  • THERE, THE KIND PETER AND THE
  • 00:04:25.000 --> 00:04:27.010
  • CURSE-YOU-OUT PETER, THE
  • 00:04:27.010 --> 00:04:29.160
  • DEFEND-YOU PETER, AND THE
  • 00:04:29.160 --> 00:04:30.280
  • DENY-YOU PETER, THE, "GREAT
  • 00:04:30.280 --> 00:04:33.080
  • TO SEE YOU TODAY," PETER, AND
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:35.020
  • THE, "I CAN'T STAND TO SEE
  • 00:04:35.020 --> 00:04:36.070
  • YOU TODAY," PETER.
  • 00:04:36.070 --> 00:04:37.280
  • I WOULD LOVE TO TELL YOU THAT
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:39.010
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE YOU IN YOU.
  • 00:04:39.030 --> 00:04:42.030
  • YOU'RE NOT LIKE PETER.
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:43.100
  • YOU DIDN'T GET THE RUDE YOU,
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:44.260
  • THE COMPROMISING YOU, THE
  • 00:04:44.260 --> 00:04:46.130
  • CURSE-YOU-OUT YOU.
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:47.230
  • BUT THAT'S NOT THE TRUTH.
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:49.080
  • THE OTHER YOU IS IN ALL OF
  • 00:04:49.080 --> 00:04:50.210
  • US.
  • 00:04:50.210 --> 00:04:52.030
  • WE ARE A NEW CREATION, BUT
  • 00:04:52.030 --> 00:04:53.280
  • THE FLESH, EVEN THOUGH IT'S
  • 00:04:53.280 --> 00:04:55.190
  • PASSED AWAY, IT CAN GET BACK
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:57.140
  • UP, AND ROMANS 8 SAYS: "IF
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:05:00.060
  • YOU LIVE BY THE FLESH, YOU
  • 00:05:00.060 --> 00:05:02.030
  • WILL DIE."
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:03.230
  • IT'S NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:05:03.230 --> 00:05:04.190
  • PHYSICALLY.
  • 00:05:04.190 --> 00:05:05.220
  • IT MEANS YOUR DREAMS WILL
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:06.240
  • DIE.
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:07.270
  • YOUR POTENTIAL WILL DIE.
  • 00:05:07.270 --> 00:05:09.110
  • YOUR RELATIONSHIPS WON'T BE
  • 00:05:09.110 --> 00:05:10.220
  • WHAT THEY SHOULD.
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:12.030
  • IF YOU'RE ALWAYS SAYING WHAT
  • 00:05:12.030 --> 00:05:13.070
  • YOU FEEL, HOLDING GRUDGES,

  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:33.250
  • HE TOLD HIS MEN TO GET THEIR
  • 00:10:33.250 --> 00:10:35.000
  • SWORDS.
  • 00:10:35.000 --> 00:10:36.020
  • THEY WERE GOING TO GO TAKE
  • 00:10:36.020 --> 00:10:37.010
  • CARE OF NABAL.
  • 00:10:37.010 --> 00:10:38.210
  • WELL, NABAL HAD A WIFE NAMED
  • 00:10:38.210 --> 00:10:40.040
  • ABIGAIL.
  • 00:10:40.040 --> 00:10:41.230
  • SHE WAS NOT ONLY EXTREMELY
  • 00:10:41.230 --> 00:10:43.000
  • BEAUTIFUL, SHE WAS VERY WISE,
  • 00:10:43.000 --> 00:10:44.220
  • AND WHEN SHE HEARD WHAT HER
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:47.080
  • HUSBAND DID, SHE LOADED UP
  • 00:10:47.080 --> 00:10:49.020
  • ANIMALS WITH FOOD AND
  • 00:10:49.020 --> 00:10:50.190
  • SUPPLIES AND HEADED OUT
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:52.130
  • TOWARD DAVID.
  • 00:10:52.130 --> 00:10:54.060
  • THEY MET ON THE ROAD.
  • 00:10:54.060 --> 00:10:55.200
  • SHE BOWED DOWN BEFORE HIM AND
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:57.050
  • SAID, "DAVID, MY HUSBAND IS A
  • 00:10:57.050 --> 00:10:58.220
  • FOOL.
  • 00:10:58.220 --> 00:11:00.130
  • I'M SORRY FOR THE WAY HE
  • 00:11:00.130 --> 00:11:01.170
  • TREATED YOU, BUT I'VE BROUGHT
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:02.290
  • YOU AND YOUR MEN THESE
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:04.100
  • SUPPLIES.
  • 00:11:04.100 --> 00:11:05.180
  • PLEASE FORGIVE US FOR WHAT HE
  • 00:11:05.180 --> 00:11:06.280
  • DID."
  • 00:11:06.280 --> 00:11:08.110
  • SHE CALMED DAVID DOWN AND
  • 00:11:08.110 --> 00:11:09.190
  • KEPT HIM FROM WIPING OUT HER
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:11.030
  • WHOLE TOWN.
  • 00:11:11.030 --> 00:11:13.020
  • DAVID THANKED HER AND TURNED
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:14.140
  • AWAY, WENT BACK HOME.
  • 00:11:14.140 --> 00:11:17.010
  • HE KNEW THAT GOD HAD USED HER
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:18.240
  • TO PROTECT HIM FROM MAKING A
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:20.210
  • MISTAKE.
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:22.080
  • TEN DAYS LATER, NABAL HAD A
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:24.020
  • STROKE AND SUDDENLY DIED.
  • 00:11:24.070 --> 00:11:27.070
  • DAVID SENT WORD TO ABIGAIL,
  • 00:11:27.070 --> 00:11:29.160
  • ASKING HER TO BECOME HIS
  • 00:11:29.160 --> 00:11:30.260
  • WIFE.
  • 00:11:30.260 --> 00:11:32.130
  • NOW THAT THE OLD MAN DIED,
  • 00:11:32.130 --> 00:11:34.100
  • SHE WAS ABLE TO MEET THE NEW
  • 00:11:34.100 --> 00:11:35.120
  • MAN.
  • 00:11:35.120 --> 00:11:38.020
  • NABAL IS SYMBOLIC OF OUR OLD
  • 00:11:38.020 --> 00:11:39.290
  • NATURE, HOT-TEMPERED, RUDE,
  • 00:11:40.220 --> 00:11:43.220
  • ADDICTIONS.
  • 00:11:43.220 --> 00:11:45.160
  • THE NAME NABAL MEANS "FOOL,"
  • 00:11:45.160 --> 00:11:46.270
  • AND AS LONG AS THE OLD MAN IS
  • 00:11:46.270 --> 00:11:49.110
  • ALIVE, YOU'LL NEVER MEET
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:51.030
  • THE NEW MAN.
  • 00:11:51.030 --> 00:11:52.250
  • I'M SPEAKING FIGURATIVELY
  • 00:11:52.250 --> 00:11:54.010
  • HERE.
  • 00:11:54.010 --> 00:11:55.160
  • I SAW THREE LADIES GIVING
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:11:56.150
  • HIGH FIVES.
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:58.260
  • THAT OLD MAN IS YOUR HUSBAND.
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:11:59.170
  • YOU ARE STUCK.
  • 00:11:59.170 --> 00:12:02.190
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT THE OLD MAN
  • 00:12:02.190 --> 00:12:03.270
  • THAT LIVES IN YOU, THE
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:06.030
  • BITTERNESS, THE BAD ATTITUDE,
  • 00:12:06.030 --> 00:12:08.100
  • THE COMPROMISE.
  • 00:12:08.100 --> 00:12:09.150
  • DON'T LET THE SAME ISSUES
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:11.180
  • KEEP YOU FROM SEEING THE NEW
  • 00:12:11.180 --> 00:12:13.000
  • MAN, THE SAME UNFORGIVENESS,
  • 00:12:13.000 --> 00:12:15.030
  • THE SAME HOT TEMPER, THE SAME
  • 00:12:15.030 --> 00:12:16.190
  • ADDICTIONS HOLD YOU BACK FOR
  • 00:12:16.190 --> 00:12:18.030
  • THE NEXT 20 YEARS.
  • 00:12:18.030 --> 00:12:19.210
  • YOU HAVE THE GRACE TO
  • 00:12:19.210 --> 00:12:20.270
  • OVERCOME.
  • 00:12:20.270 --> 00:12:22.150
  • THE TEMPTATION MAY BE STRONG,
  • 00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:23.160
  • BUT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS,
  • 00:12:23.160 --> 00:12:25.120
  • "WHERE SIN ABOUNDS, GRACE
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:26.290
  • DOES MUCH MORE ABOUND."
  • 00:12:26.290 --> 00:12:29.110
  • THAT MEANS GOD'S GRACE, HIS
  • 00:12:29.110 --> 00:12:30.210
  • ENABLING POWER IS GREATER
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:32.150
  • THAN ANYTHING THAT'S TRYING
  • 00:12:32.150 --> 00:12:34.100
  • TO STOP YOU, AND IT'S
  • 00:12:34.100 --> 00:12:36.020
  • INTERESTING THAT NABAL DIED
  • 00:12:36.020 --> 00:12:37.150
  • 10 DAYS AFTER ABIGAIL DID THE
  • 00:12:37.150 --> 00:12:39.140
  • RIGHT THING, AND WHEN YOU DIG
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:41.220
  • YOUR HEELS IN AND DO THE
  • 00:12:41.220 --> 00:12:43.150
  • RIGHT THING WHEN IT'S HARD,
  • 00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:45.000
  • THERE WILL BE TIMES, LIKE
  • 00:12:45.000 --> 00:12:46.240
  • WITH HER, YOU WILL COME IN TO
  • 00:12:46.240 --> 00:12:48.200
  • YOUR 10TH DAY, WHERE
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:50.170
  • THAT ADDICTION DOESN'T HAVE
  • 00:12:52.210 --> 00:12:53.190
  • THE POWER OVER YOU LIKE IT
  • 00:12:53.190 --> 00:12:55.080
  • DID.
  • 00:12:55.080 --> 00:12:56.160
  • THAT BAD ATTITUDE, THAT
  • 00:12:56.160 --> 00:12:57.130
  • TEMPER, IT MAY NOT TOTALLY GO
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:12:58.210
  • AWAY, BUT IT DOESN'T CONTROL
  • 00:12:58.210 --> 00:13:00.240
  • YOU ANYMORE, AND I WONDER HOW
  • 00:13:00.240 --> 00:13:03.040
  • MUCH HIGHER WE WOULD GO, HOW
  • 00:13:03.040 --> 00:13:05.230
  • MUCH MORE OF GOD'S FAVOR WE
  • 00:13:05.230 --> 00:13:07.060
  • WOULD SEE IF WE WOULD GET RID
  • 00:13:07.060 --> 00:13:09.030
  • OF THE OLD MAN, IF WE WOULD
  • 00:13:09.030 --> 00:13:11.130
  • START SAYING, "NO," TO THINGS
  • 00:13:11.130 --> 00:13:13.010
  • THAT WE KNOW ARE HOLDING US
  • 00:13:13.010 --> 00:13:14.220
  • SOMETIMES A LITTLE THING CAN
  • 00:13:16.210 --> 00:13:18.200
  • KEEP YOU FROM A BIG BLESSING,
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:21.000
  • A LITTLE BITTERNESS, A LITTLE
  • 00:13:21.000 --> 00:13:22.110
  • COMPROMISE, JUST THIS ONE
  • 00:13:22.110 --> 00:13:23.280
  • FRIEND I HANG OUT WITH.
  • 00:13:23.280 --> 00:13:25.150
  • "JOEL, I'VE ALWAYS BEEN
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:26.140
  • HOT-TEMPERED."
  • 00:13:26.140 --> 00:13:27.140
  • NO, IT'S TIME TO GET RID OF
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:28.250
  • CAN I TELL YOU, NOBODY LIKES
  • 00:13:30.130 --> 00:13:31.170
  • HIM?
  • 00:13:31.170 --> 00:13:33.000
  • NOBODY WANTS TO BE AROUND
  • 00:13:33.000 --> 00:13:33.240
  • HIM.
  • 00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:35.030
  • YOU MIGHT AS WELL PUT THE OLD
  • 00:13:35.030 --> 00:13:36.030
  • MAN BACK IN THE GRAVE.
  • 00:13:36.030 --> 00:13:38.140
  • WE DON'T WANT THE
  • 00:13:38.140 --> 00:13:39.120
  • WALKING-DEAD YOU.
  • 00:13:39.120 --> 00:13:40.270
  • WE WANT THE NEW YOU, THE FREE
  • 00:13:40.270 --> 00:13:42.120
  • YOU, THE REDEEMED YOU, THE
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:44.030
  • BLESSED YOU, THE CONFIDENT
  • 00:13:44.030 --> 00:13:45.080
  • YOU, THE VICTORIOUS YOU.
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:48.130
  • DAVID HAD TO DEFEAT HIS
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:49.180
  • PERSONAL ENEMIES BEFORE GOD
  • 00:13:49.180 --> 00:13:51.120
  • COULD TRUST HIM WITH GOLIATH.
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:53.260
  • GOLIATH, IN ONE SENSE, WASN'T
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:55.070
  • DAVID'S ENEMY.
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:56.260
  • THAT WAS GOD'S ENEMY.
  • 00:13:56.260 --> 00:13:58.190
  • GOLIATH WAS SENT TO ESTABLISH
  • 00:13:58.190 --> 00:14:00.070
  • THE ISRAELITES, TO SHOW THE
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:02.000
  • PHILISTINES THAT GOD WAS ON
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:03.180
  • THE ISRAELITES' SIDE, AND
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:05.150
  • WHEN DAVID WAS OUT IN THE
  • 00:14:05.150 --> 00:14:06.280
  • SHEPHERD'S FIELDS ALONE, WHEN
  • 00:14:06.280 --> 00:14:08.280
  • NOBODY WAS WATCHING, HE
  • 00:14:08.280 --> 00:14:10.150
  • KILLED THE LION AND THE BEAR.
  • 00:14:10.150 --> 00:14:13.110
  • THOSE WERE HIS PERSONAL
  • 00:14:13.110 --> 00:14:14.140
  • ENEMIES.
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:15.200
  • HE COULD HAVE SLACKED UP,
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:16.240
  • THOUGHT, "NOBODY CAN SEE ME
  • 00:14:16.240 --> 00:14:18.010
  • OUT HERE.
  • 00:14:18.010 --> 00:14:19.050
  • IF I LOSE A SHEEP OR TWO,
  • 00:14:19.050 --> 00:14:20.030
  • IT'S NO BIG DEAL."
  • 00:14:20.030 --> 00:14:21.200
  • BUT DAVID WAS A PERSON OF
  • 00:14:21.200 --> 00:14:22.240
  • EXCELLENCE.
  • 00:14:22.240 --> 00:14:24.120
  • HE DID THE RIGHT THING WHEN
  • 00:14:24.120 --> 00:14:25.160
  • NOBODY WAS WATCHING, AND
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:27.050
  • BECAUSE HE WAS FAITHFUL TO
  • 00:14:27.050 --> 00:14:28.200
  • DEFEAT HIS PERSONAL ENEMIES,
  • 00:14:28.200 --> 00:14:31.080
  • GOD WAS ABLE TO PROMOTE HIM
  • 00:14:31.080 --> 00:14:32.170
  • AND TRUST HIM WITH MORE, AND
  • 00:14:32.170 --> 00:14:35.090
  • IF YOU'LL DO LIKE DAVID AND
  • 00:14:35.090 --> 00:14:36.250
  • START DEFEATING THE THINGS
  • 00:14:36.250 --> 00:14:38.210
  • THAT NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT--MAY
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:41.050
  • NOT BE A SIN, IT'S JUST A
  • 00:14:41.050 --> 00:14:42.220
  • WEIGHT, A SMALL THING THAT'S
  • 00:14:42.220 --> 00:14:45.010
  • KEEPING YOU FROM BEING YOUR
  • 00:14:45.010 --> 00:14:46.080
  • BEST, SOUR ATTITUDE, BEING
  • 00:14:46.080 --> 00:14:48.100
  • JEALOUS OF A FRIEND, SHOWING
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:50.000
  • UP LATE TO WORK.
  • 00:14:50.000 --> 00:14:51.160
  • ARE THERE PERSONAL ENEMIES
  • 00:14:51.160 --> 00:14:53.010
  • YOU'RE NOT DEALING WITH,
  • 00:14:53.010 --> 00:14:55.010
  • THINKING, "OH, COME ON, JOEL,
  • 00:14:55.010 --> 00:14:56.040
  • EVERYBODY DEALS WITH
  • 00:14:56.040 --> 00:14:57.020
  • SOMETHING"?
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:14:58.030
  • NO, IF YOU'LL START DEFEATING
  • 00:14:58.030 --> 00:14:59.100
  • THOSE SMALL THINGS THAT ARE
  • 00:14:59.100 --> 00:15:00.290
  • HOLDING YOU BACK, GOD WILL
  • 00:15:00.290 --> 00:15:02.140
  • RELEASE THE BIG THINGS THAT
  • 00:15:02.140 --> 00:15:04.000
  • BELONG TO YOU.
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:05.190
  • BUT SOMETIMES WE'RE WAITING
  • 00:15:05.190 --> 00:15:07.020
  • FOR THE TEMPTATION TO GO
  • 00:15:07.020 --> 00:15:08.130
  • AWAY, THINKING THAT WE'RE NOT
  • 00:15:08.130 --> 00:15:10.100
  • GOING TO HAVE THE DESIRE
  • 00:15:10.100 --> 00:15:11.150
  • ANYMORE, AND THERE ARE TIMES
  • 00:15:11.150 --> 00:15:13.100
  • THAT HAPPENS, BUT MOST OF THE
  • 00:15:13.100 --> 00:15:15.040
  • TIME, THE TEMPTATION WILL
  • 00:15:15.040 --> 00:15:16.240
  • STILL BE THERE.
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:18.150
  • YOUR OLD MAN WILL WANT TO GET
  • 00:15:18.150 --> 00:15:19.220
  • BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN, BUT GOD
  • 00:15:19.220 --> 00:15:21.140
  • HAS GIVEN YOU THE GRACE TO
  • 00:15:21.140 --> 00:15:22.250
  • OVERCOME.
  • 00:15:22.250 --> 00:15:25.070
  • I'M A VERY GOAL-ORIENTED
  • 00:15:25.070 --> 00:15:26.290
  • PERSON, VERY FOCUSED.
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:28.270
  • IT'S MY PERSONALITY TYPE.
  • 00:15:28.270 --> 00:15:30.280
  • WHEN I GO TO THE GROCERY
  • 00:15:30.280 --> 00:15:32.000
  • STORE, I'M ON A MISSION.
  • 00:15:32.000 --> 00:15:33.240
  • I'M GOING TO GET IN, GET OUT,
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:34.290
  • BE EFFICIENT.
  • 00:15:34.290 --> 00:15:36.040
  • I DON'T LIKE WAITING AROUND.
  • 00:15:36.040 --> 00:15:36.280
  • I USED TO BE IMPATIENT.
  • 00:15:36.280 --> 00:15:39.180
  • I WOULDN'T LET ANYBODY SEE
  • 00:15:39.180 --> 00:15:40.210
  • IT, BUT IF THERE WAS A LONG
  • 00:15:40.210 --> 00:15:42.010
  • LINE OR IF THE WAITER DIDN'T
  • 00:15:42.010 --> 00:15:43.290
  • COME TO THE TABLE RIGHT AWAY,
  • 00:15:43.290 --> 00:15:45.160
  • I'D GET STRESSED OUT.
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:47.070
  • BUT LIVING WITH VICTORIA ALL
  • 00:15:47.070 --> 00:15:48.230
  • THESE YEARS, I'VE LEARNED TO
  • 00:15:48.230 --> 00:15:50.220
  • SLOW DOWN, ENJOY THE JOURNEY.
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:53.030
  • I'M MUCH MORE RELAXED, LEARN
  • 00:15:53.030 --> 00:15:54.150
  • TO GO WITH THE FLOW.
  • 00:15:54.150 --> 00:15:56.080
  • BUT EVEN NOW, IF SOMETHING IS
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:58.000
  • NOT HAPPENING AS FAST AS I
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:15:59.140
  • WOULD LIKE, IF THE CAR IN
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:16:01.070
  • FRONT OF ME ON THE FREEWAY
  • 00:16:01.070 --> 00:16:02.180
  • IN THE FAST LANE IS DRIVING
  • 00:16:02.180 --> 00:16:04.240
  • 40 MILES AN HOUR, MY OLD MAN
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:07.120
  • STILL WANTS TO GET BACK UP.
  • 00:16:07.120 --> 00:16:10.030
  • I'VE HAD HIM DOWN FOR YEARS.
  • 00:16:10.030 --> 00:16:12.000
  • WE BURIED HIM, HAD A NICE
  • 00:16:12.000 --> 00:16:13.140
  • FUNERAL, BUT EVERY WEEK,
  • 00:16:13.140 --> 00:16:15.100
  • HE'S TRYING TO GET BACK UP.
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:17.010
  • WHAT AM I SAYING?
  • 00:16:17.010 --> 00:16:18.080
  • GOD DOESN'T TAKE AWAY EVERY
  • 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:19.140
  • TEMPTATION, AND REMOVE EVERY
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:21.130
  • NEGATIVE DESIRE WHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:16:21.130 --> 00:16:23.140
  • NEVER TEMPTED TO BE
  • 00:16:23.140 --> 00:16:24.220
  • IMPATIENT, TO BE RUDE, TO
  • 00:16:24.220 --> 00:16:25.270
  • COMPROMISE.
  • 00:16:25.270 --> 00:16:27.040
  • THAT'S WHY PAUL SAID, "I DIE
  • 00:16:27.040 --> 00:16:28.150
  • DAILY."
  • 00:16:28.150 --> 00:16:30.170
  • YOU'RE STILL TEMPTED TO GET
  • 00:16:30.170 --> 00:16:31.210
  • OFF COURSE, JOIN THE CROWD.
  • 00:16:31.210 --> 00:16:34.090
  • THIS IS WHERE DISCIPLINE
  • 00:16:34.090 --> 00:16:35.080
  • STEPS IN.
  • 00:16:35.080 --> 00:16:36.160
  • THIS IS WHERE THE GRACE OF
  • 00:16:36.160 --> 00:16:37.120
  • GOD SHOWS UP, AND YES, I KNOW
  • 00:16:37.120 --> 00:16:39.110
  • PEOPLE THAT GOD DELIVERED
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:40.180
  • FROM AN ADDICTION.
  • 00:16:40.180 --> 00:16:42.020
  • THEY DON'T HAVE THE DESIRE
  • 00:16:42.020 --> 00:16:42.270
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:44.070
  • THAT'S THE MERCY OF GOD.
  • 00:16:44.070 --> 00:16:46.090
  • BUT IF IT DOESN'T HAPPEN THAT
  • 00:16:46.090 --> 00:16:47.160
  • WAY FOR YOU, DON'T USE IT AS
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:49.210
  • AN EXCUSE TO LET THE OLD MAN
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:51.220
  • GET BACK UP.
  • 00:16:51.220 --> 00:16:53.140
  • KEEP NABAL IN THE GRAVE.
  • 00:16:53.140 --> 00:16:55.140
  • NABAL DOESN'T LOOK GOOD ON
  • 00:16:55.140 --> 00:16:56.150
  • YOU.
  • 00:16:56.150 --> 00:16:57.230
  • NABAL IS NOT YOUR STYLE.
  • 00:16:57.230 --> 00:16:59.200
  • KEEP THE OLD MAN DOWN SO THE
  • 00:16:59.200 --> 00:17:01.030
  • NEW MAN CAN SHINE, AND HERE'S
  • 00:17:01.030 --> 00:17:03.150
  • A KEY.
  • 00:17:03.150 --> 00:17:04.290
  • WHAT YOU DEFEAT QUICKLY IS
  • 00:17:04.290 --> 00:17:06.090
  • NOT YOUR REAL ENEMY.
  • 00:17:06.090 --> 00:17:09.010
  • WHAT YOU CONQUER IN A SHORT
  • 00:17:09.010 --> 00:17:10.210
  • TIME IS NOT WHAT YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:17:10.210 --> 00:17:12.170
  • BE CONCERNED ABOUT.
  • 00:17:12.170 --> 00:17:14.090
  • BE GRATEFUL FOR THAT, BUT
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.170
  • YOUR REAL ENEMY DOESN'T GO
  • 00:17:15.170 --> 00:17:17.080
  • AWAY EASILY.
  • 00:17:17.080 --> 00:17:19.170
  • I'M NOT TEMPTED TO CURSE, TO
  • 00:17:19.170 --> 00:17:21.050
  • DO DRUGS, TO BE DISHONEST.
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:22.290
  • BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I DON'T
  • 00:17:22.290 --> 00:17:25.220
  • STRUGGLE IN THOSE AREAS.
  • 00:17:25.220 --> 00:17:27.240
  • BUT BEING IMPATIENT, THAT OLD
  • 00:17:27.240 --> 00:17:29.160
  • MAN HAS BEEN TRYING TO GET UP
  • 00:17:29.160 --> 00:17:31.100
  • FOR OVER 30 YEARS.
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:33.130
  • HE'S STUBBORN, HE WON'T GO
  • 00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:34.110
  • AWAY.
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.160
  • FOR ME, HE'S A REAL ENEMY.
  • 00:17:35.160 --> 00:17:38.030
  • DAVID DEFEATED GOLIATH IN A
  • 00:17:38.030 --> 00:17:39.200
  • FEW MINUTES, A VICTORY THAT
  • 00:17:39.200 --> 00:17:41.220
  • CHANGED THE COURSE OF HIS
  • 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:42.290
  • LIFE.
  • 00:17:42.290 --> 00:17:44.080
  • BUT GOLIATH WASN'T DAVID'S
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:45.150
  • REAL ENEMY.
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:47.090
  • HE WAS GONE IN A MOMENT.
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:48.270
  • HIS REAL ENEMY WAS SAUL.
  • 00:17:48.270 --> 00:17:51.200
  • SAUL PESTERED DAVID FOR
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:53.000
  • YEARS, THREW SPEARS AT HIM
  • 00:17:53.000 --> 00:17:55.040
  • WHEN DAVID WAS BEING NICE.
  • 00:17:55.040 --> 00:17:56.140
  • HE CHASED DAVID THROUGH THE
  • 00:17:56.140 --> 00:17:58.180
  • DESERT.
  • 00:17:58.180 --> 00:17:59.230
  • GOD COULD HAVE DELIVERED RUN.
  • 00:18:01.210 --> 00:18:03.060
  • DAVID FROM SAUL LIKE HE DID
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:05.030
  • GOLIATH.
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:07.020
  • HE COULD'VE TAKEN CARE OF HIM
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:08.000
  • IN 1 AFTERNOON, NO BIG DEAL.
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:10.190
  • BUT THERE ARE SOME ENEMIES
  • 00:18:10.190 --> 00:18:12.230
  • SOME TEMPTATIONS HE DOESN'T
  • 00:18:15.160 --> 00:18:17.010
  • TOTALLY REMOVE, AND IF GOD IS
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:19.080
  • NOT TAKING IT AWAY, THAT
  • 00:18:19.080 --> 00:18:21.060
  • MEANS HE'S GIVING YOU THE
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:22.260
  • GRACE TO STAND STRONG.
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:25.060
  • YOU HAVE THE POWER TO KEEP
  • 00:18:25.060 --> 00:18:26.220
  • THE OLD MAN DOWN.
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.190
  • NOW, YOU MAY BE TEMPTED TO
  • 00:18:28.190 --> 00:18:29.280
  • HOLD ON TO BITTERNESS.
  • 00:18:29.280 --> 00:18:32.040
  • SOMEBODY DID YOU WRONG.
  • 00:18:32.040 --> 00:18:33.210
  • THEY HURT YOU.
  • 00:18:33.210 --> 00:18:35.030
  • IT'S BEEN YEARS, AND THAT
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:36.120
  • TEMPTATION IS STILL THERE.
  • 00:18:36.120 --> 00:18:38.140
  • THAT'S YOUR REAL ENEMY.
  • 00:18:38.140 --> 00:18:40.190
  • KEEP THE OLD MAN DOWN.
  • 00:18:40.190 --> 00:18:42.190
  • DO THE RIGHT THING WHEN IT'S
  • 00:18:42.190 --> 00:18:43.200
  • HARD.
  • 00:18:43.200 --> 00:18:44.180
  • BITTERNESS DOESN'T LOOK GOOD
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:45.200
  • ON YOU.
  • 00:18:45.200 --> 00:18:47.010
  • MAYBE YOU HAVE AN ONGOING
  • 00:18:47.010 --> 00:18:48.050
  • TEMPTATION WITH ALCOHOL OR TO
  • 00:18:48.050 --> 00:18:50.060
  • COMPROMISE IN A RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:18:50.060 --> 00:18:52.190
  • TO BE NEGATIVE OR CRITICAL.
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:54.140
  • EVERY PERSON HAS A SAUL.
  • 00:18:54.140 --> 00:18:57.060
  • THERE'S A TEMPTATION, AN
  • 00:18:57.060 --> 00:18:58.150
  • ATTITUDE, SOME AREA OF
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:19:00.210
  • COMPROMISE THAT DOESN'T GO
  • 00:19:00.210 --> 00:19:02.150
  • AWAY, AND YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:19:02.150 --> 00:19:04.180
  • WHAT YOUR REAL ENEMY IS, AND
  • 00:19:04.180 --> 00:19:07.110
  • DON'T LET THE SAULS WEAR YOU
  • 00:19:07.110 --> 00:19:09.050
  • DOWN TO WHERE YOU THINK,
  • 00:19:09.050 --> 00:19:11.040
  • "THIS IS JUST WHO I AM."
  • 00:19:11.040 --> 00:19:12.280
  • NO, ANNOUNCE TO THAT SAUL,
  • 00:19:12.280 --> 00:19:14.150
  • "YOU WILL NOT KEEP ME FROM MY
  • 00:19:14.150 --> 00:19:16.030
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:19:16.030 --> 00:19:17.140
  • IF YOU NEVER GO AWAY, I'M NOT
  • 00:19:17.140 --> 00:19:18.280
  • GIVING IN.
  • 00:19:18.280 --> 00:19:20.120
  • I'M NOT LETTING THE OLD MAN
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:21.160
  • GET BACK UP.
  • 00:19:21.160 --> 00:19:22.190
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP RESISTING,
  • 00:19:22.190 --> 00:19:23.270
  • STANDING STRONG, DOING THE
  • 00:19:23.270 --> 00:19:25.190
  • RIGHT THING."
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:27.140
  • BUT TOO OFTEN, WE WANT A
  • 00:19:27.140 --> 00:19:28.160
  • QUICK FIX.
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:29.270
  • "GOD, DELIVER ME INSTANTLY.
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:31.250
  • TAKE AWAY THIS HOT TEMPER.
  • 00:19:31.250 --> 00:19:33.130
  • LORD, MAKE ME PATIENT AND
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:34.230
  • KIND AND DO IT OVERNIGHT,"
  • 00:19:34.230 --> 00:19:36.220
  • AND YOU WILL DEFEAT SOME
  • 00:19:36.220 --> 00:19:38.100
  • GIANTS OVERNIGHT.
  • 00:19:38.100 --> 00:19:40.060
  • YOU WILL CONQUER SOME
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:41.160
  • GOLIATHS QUICKLY, BUT MOST OF
  • 00:19:41.160 --> 00:19:43.100
  • THE TIME, GOD WILL DELIVER
  • 00:19:43.100 --> 00:19:45.080
  • YOU LITTLE BY LITTLE.
  • 00:19:45.080 --> 00:19:47.130
  • WHEN HE SEES YOU DOING YOUR
  • 00:19:47.130 --> 00:19:49.010
  • PART, BEING PATIENT WHEN YOU
  • 00:19:49.010 --> 00:19:50.240
  • COULD BE STRESSED, FORGIVING
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:52.200
  • THE PERSON THAT DID YOU
  • 00:19:52.200 --> 00:19:54.010
  • WRONG, RESISTING THE
  • 00:19:54.010 --> 00:19:55.050
  • TEMPTATION, AS YOU KEEP
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:56.280
  • PASSING THESE TESTS, ONE STEP
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:19:58.230
  • AT A TIME, GOD WILL BEGIN TO
  • 00:19:58.230 --> 00:20:00.230
  • CHANGE THINGS.
  • 00:20:00.230 --> 00:20:02.130
  • THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO
  • 00:20:02.130 --> 00:20:03.160
  • JACOB IN THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:05.000
  • HE WAS DISHONEST.
  • 00:20:05.000 --> 00:20:06.190
  • HE WENT AROUND TRICKING
  • 00:20:06.190 --> 00:20:07.200
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:20:07.200 --> 00:20:08.190
  • HE DECEIVED HIS BROTHER OUT
  • 00:20:08.190 --> 00:20:09.180
  • OF HIS BIRTHRIGHT.
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:11.050
  • BEING DISHONEST WAS HIS SAUL.
  • 00:20:11.050 --> 00:20:13.180
  • HE STRUGGLED WITH IT FOR
  • 00:20:13.180 --> 00:20:14.170
  • YEARS.
  • 00:20:14.170 --> 00:20:15.220
  • HE WASN'T DISCIPLINED.
  • 00:20:15.220 --> 00:20:17.110
  • HE DIDN'T TRY TO OVERCOME.
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:18.230
  • HE ACCEPTED IT FOR WHO HE
  • 00:20:18.230 --> 00:20:19.260
  • BUT IN GENESIS 32, WHEN HE
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:23.090
  • WRESTLED WITH THE ANGEL, GOD
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:25.100
  • CHANGED HIS NAME FROM JACOB
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:27.100
  • TO ISRAEL.
  • 00:20:27.100 --> 00:20:29.150
  • THIS WAS TO SYMBOLIZE HIS NEW
  • 00:20:29.150 --> 00:20:31.110
  • BEGINNING.
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:32.290
  • GOD WAS SAYING, "JACOB, I'M
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:34.090
  • GIVING YOU THE GRACE TO
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:35.280
  • CONQUER THIS DISHONESTY," AND
  • 00:20:35.280 --> 00:20:38.050
  • AND LIVE WITH INTEGRITY.
  • 00:20:40.000 --> 00:20:42.050
  • HE STARTED MAKING BETTER
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:43.120
  • DECISIONS.
  • 00:20:43.120 --> 00:20:44.240
  • BUT JUST BECAUSE GOD TOUCHED
  • 00:20:44.240 --> 00:20:46.070
  • HIM DIDN'T MEAN HE SUDDENLY
  • 00:20:46.070 --> 00:20:48.100
  • TURNED INTO A DIFFERENT
  • 00:20:48.100 --> 00:20:50.000
  • PERSON AND HE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:51.160
  • THESE TEMPTATIONS ANYMORE.
  • 00:20:51.160 --> 00:20:53.250
  • IN GENESIS 48, HE CAME TO THE
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:55.190
  • END OF LIFE.
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:57.070
  • VERSE 2 SAYS: "WHEN JACOB WAS
  • 00:20:57.070 --> 00:20:59.130
  • TOLD, 'YOUR SON JOSEPH IS
  • 00:20:59.130 --> 00:21:01.150
  • HERE TO SEE YOU,' ISRAEL
  • 00:21:01.150 --> 00:21:04.110
  • GATHERED UP HIS STRENGTH AND
  • 00:21:04.110 --> 00:21:06.110
  • SAT UP IN BED."
  • 00:21:06.110 --> 00:21:08.090
  • HE WAS NEAR DEATH, AND LOOK
  • 00:21:08.090 --> 00:21:09.220
  • WHO WAS THERE, ISRAEL AND
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:11.040
  • JACOB.
  • 00:21:11.040 --> 00:21:13.110
  • YOU WOULD THINK THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:14.180
  • WOULD JUST REFER TO HIM AS
  • 00:21:14.180 --> 00:21:16.030
  • ISRAEL.
  • 00:21:16.030 --> 00:21:17.150
  • JACOB WAS OVER AND DONE.
  • 00:21:17.150 --> 00:21:19.170
  • BUT THIS WAS PUT THERE TO
  • 00:21:19.170 --> 00:21:21.030
  • SHOW US THAT HE NEVER TOTALLY
  • 00:21:21.030 --> 00:21:23.060
  • GOT RID OF JACOB.
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:25.120
  • HE LIVED AS ISRAEL, HIS NEW
  • 00:21:25.120 --> 00:21:27.040
  • NAME, BUT JACOB DIDN'T GO
  • 00:21:27.040 --> 00:21:28.290
  • AWAY EASILY.
  • 00:21:28.290 --> 00:21:30.270
  • JACOB KEPT TRYING TO GET BACK
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:32.060
  • UP AND COME AGAIN AND AGAIN.
  • 00:21:32.060 --> 00:21:33.230
  • IT'S THE SAME WAY WITH US.
  • 00:21:33.260 --> 00:21:36.260
  • GOD MADE US A NEW CREATION.
  • 00:21:36.260 --> 00:21:39.020

  • JACOB, THE DECEIVER, THE
  • 00:21:40.090 --> 00:21:42.010
  • COMPROMISER, NOW YOU'RE
  • 00:21:42.010 --> 00:21:43.230
  • ISRAEL.
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:45.220
  • BUT EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:47.030
  • ISRAEL, JACOB IS GOING TO GET
  • 00:21:47.030 --> 00:21:48.250
  • UP OUT OF THE GRAVE AND TRY
  • 00:21:48.250 --> 00:21:50.200
  • TO WORK HIS WAY BACK."
  • 00:21:50.200 --> 00:21:52.240
  • THERE WILL BE A CONFLICT
  • 00:21:52.240 --> 00:21:54.120
  • BETWEEN THESE TWO MEN, WHO
  • 00:21:54.120 --> 00:21:56.060
  • YOU'RE CALLED TO BE, AND WHO
  • 00:21:56.060 --> 00:21:57.260
  • YOU USED TO BE.
  • 00:21:57.260 --> 00:21:59.240
  • SOMEBODY CUTS YOU OFF IN
  • 00:21:59.240 --> 00:22:01.020
  • TRAFFIC, ISRAEL SAYS, "NO BIG
  • 00:22:01.020 --> 00:22:02.130
  • DEAL.
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:03.280

  • 00:22:05.190 --> 00:22:07.070
  • IT WOULD BE EASY IF JACOB
  • 00:22:07.070 --> 00:22:08.270
  • WERE TOTALLY GONE.
  • 00:22:08.270 --> 00:22:10.260
  • THE PROBLEM IS, THE OLD MAN,
  • 00:22:10.260 --> 00:22:12.000
  • JACOB, HE'S STILL IN THERE.
  • 00:22:12.000 --> 00:22:14.150
  • WHEN ISRAEL SAYS, "I'M GOING
  • 00:22:14.150 --> 00:22:15.290
  • TO BLESS THEM," JACOB GETS UP
  • 00:22:15.290 --> 00:22:17.220
  • AND SAYS, "NO, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:22:17.220 --> 00:22:19.080
  • CURSE THEM."
  • 00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:21.000
  • ISRAEL WANTS TO OVERLOOK THE
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:22.060
  • OFFENSE.
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:23.220
  • JACOB WANTS TO TELL THEM OFF.
  • 00:22:23.220 --> 00:22:25.280
  • ISRAEL WANTS TO RESIST
  • 00:22:25.280 --> 00:22:27.210
  • THE TEMPTATION,
  • 00:22:27.210 --> 00:22:28.280
  • SET A NEW STANDARD.
  • 00:22:28.280 --> 00:22:30.280
  • JACOB WANTS TO TAKE
  • 00:22:30.280 --> 00:22:32.030
  • THE EASY WAY OUT,
  • 00:22:32.030 --> 00:22:33.190
  • NOT BE UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:35.010
  • WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF
  • 00:22:35.010 --> 00:22:36.100
  • WANTING TO COMPROMISE, BE
  • 00:22:36.100 --> 00:22:38.000
  • IMPATIENT, GIVE IN TO THE
  • 00:22:38.000 --> 00:22:39.120
  • TEMPTATION, JUST SAY TO
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:41.020
  • YOURSELF, "NO, JACOB, YOU'RE
  • 00:22:41.020 --> 00:22:42.240
  • NOT GETTING UP.
  • 00:22:42.240 --> 00:22:44.040
  • YOU'RE THE OLD MAN.

  • STAY IN THAT GRAVE.
  • 00:22:45.110 --> 00:22:46.220

  • TAKE THE HIGH ROAD.

  • THESE ARE TESTS THAT GOD

  • ALLOWS SO WE CAN GROW, AND
  • 00:23:07.190 --> 00:23:10.180
  • THE SCRIPTURE TALKS ABOUT HOW
  • 00:23:10.180 --> 00:23:12.100
  • GOD USES DIFFICULTIES TO
  • 00:23:12.100 --> 00:23:14.110
  • SEPARATE THE CHAFF FROM
  • 00:23:14.110 --> 00:23:15.220
  • THE WHEAT.
  • 00:23:15.220 --> 00:23:17.270

  • OVER IT AGAIN AND AGAIN,
  • 00:23:35.210 --> 00:23:37.160
  • GRINDING UP THE HUSK AND THE

  • LET YOUR OLD MAN GET UP WAY
