  • 00:17:14.050 --> 00:17:15.260
  • - HERE'S A COUPLE KEYS TO MAINTAINING YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:15.290 --> 00:17:18.150
  • NUMBER ONE, GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:18.180 --> 00:17:21.130
  • YOU WANNA WRITE THIS ONE DOWN, LADIES.
  • 00:17:21.160 --> 00:17:23.070
  • GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:23.100 --> 00:17:25.200
  • GUARD YOUR HEARTS.
  • 00:17:25.230 --> 00:17:27.000
  • PROVERBS 4:23, IT SAYS, "KEEP YOUR HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE.
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:31.170
  • "FOR OUT OF IT SPRING THE ISSUES OF LIFE."
  • 00:17:31.200 --> 00:17:34.170
  • GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:34.200 --> 00:17:35.190
  • EVERYONE DOES NOT NEED ACCESS TO YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:35.220 --> 00:17:39.200
  • EVERYONE CANNOT HANDLE THE CURRENCY OF YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:39.230 --> 00:17:43.080
  • BE WISE WITH THE INTIMATE PLACES OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS.
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:47.270
  • BE WISE WITH WHO YOU SHARE YOUR DREAMS WITH.
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:50.080
  • THESE ARE INTIMATES THINGS YOU NEED TO GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:50.110 --> 00:17:52.170
  • SAY GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:52.200 --> 00:17:53.180
  • -[AUDIENCE] GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:54.180
  • - IF YOU'RE GONNA CROSS YOUR HEART,
  • 00:17:54.210 --> 00:17:55.130
  • YOU ALSO NEED TO GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:55.160 --> 00:17:56.290
  • EVERYONE DOES NOT NEED AN ALL-ACCESS PASS.
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:18:01.170
  • BE WISE IN WHO YOU SHARE INTIMATE DETAILS WITH
  • 00:18:01.200 --> 00:18:05.050
  • BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE DON'T NECESSARILY
  • 00:18:05.080 --> 00:18:06.270
  • HAVE YOUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART,
  • 00:18:07.000 --> 00:18:08.190
  • AND SOME PEOPLE WILL DESPISE YOUR HUMANITY
  • 00:18:08.220 --> 00:18:11.110
  • AND STOP SEEING THE DIVINITY.
  • 00:18:11.140 --> 00:18:13.100
  • SO, SOME PEOPLE DON'T NEED TO KNOW EVERYTHING.
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:16.090
  • ASK THE LORD FOR THE DISCERNMENT
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:18.200
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ON WHO SHOULD BE CLOSE
  • 00:18:18.230 --> 00:18:21.080
  • AND WHAT YOU SHOULD SHARE,
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:22.240
  • BUT UNTIL HE GIVES YOU CLARITY, GUARD YOUR HEART.
  • 00:18:22.270 --> 00:18:28.040
  • NUMBER TWO, SPEAK TO YOUR HEART.
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:31.230
  • SPEAK TO YOUR HEART.
  • 00:18:31.260 --> 00:18:33.240
  • SOLOMON IN 2 CHRONICLES CHAPTER ONE.
  • 00:18:33.270 --> 00:18:39.060
  • THERE'S A SCRIPTURE, VERY PROFOUND SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:41.240
  • BECAUSE SOLOMON RECEIVED UNPRECEDENTED FAVOR FROM GOD.
  • 00:18:41.270 --> 00:18:47.120
  • UNPRECEDENTED WISDOM AND UNPRECEDENTED WEALTH. WHY?
  • 00:18:47.150 --> 00:18:53.250
  • WATCH IN 2 CHRONICLES 1:11 WHAT GOD SAID,
  • 00:18:53.280 --> 00:18:57.180
  • "THEN GOD SAID TO SOLOMON,
  • 00:18:57.210 --> 00:18:58.170
  • "'BECAUSE THIS WAS IN YOUR HEART
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:02.000
  • "AND YOU HAVE NOT ASKED RICHES OR WEALTH OR HONOR
  • 00:19:02.030 --> 00:19:04.200
  • "OR LIFE OF YOUR ENEMIES NOR HAVE YOU ASKED LONG LIFE,
  • 00:19:04.230 --> 00:19:08.070
  • "BUT HAVE ASKED WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE FOR YOURSELF
  • 00:19:08.100 --> 00:19:10.220
  • "THAT YOU MAY JUDGE MY PEOPLE OVER
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:12.110
  • "WHOM I HAVE MADE YOU KING.
  • 00:19:12.140 --> 00:19:13.200
  • "I'MA GIVE YOU ALL THAT AND THEN SOME.'"
  • 00:19:13.230 --> 00:19:16.250
  • BUT THE FIRST PART IS WHAT I WANT YOU TO CATCH.
  • 00:19:16.280 --> 00:19:19.080
  • GOD GAVE SOLOMON AN OPPORTUNITY, ASK ME FOR ANYTHING.
  • 00:19:19.110 --> 00:19:23.030
  • SAID I NEED WISDOM TO JUDGE YOUR PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:25.140
  • THEY DESERVE THE BEST, I'M NOT THE BEST.
  • 00:19:25.170 --> 00:19:28.000
  • I NEED YOU TO GIVE ME WISDOM
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:29.040
  • SO I CAN DO RIGHT BY THEM.
  • 00:19:29.070 --> 00:19:31.200
  • AND THE BIBLE MAKES IT CLEAR
  • 00:19:31.230 --> 00:19:33.050
  • THAT GOD SAID THIS WAS IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:19:33.080 --> 00:19:36.240
  • SO, IT WASN'T A KNEE-JERK RESPONSE.
  • 00:19:36.270 --> 00:19:40.160
  • THIS WAS SOMETHING SOLOMON HAD BEEN THINKING
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:42.110
  • ABOUT FOR A WHILE.
  • 00:19:42.140 --> 00:19:44.050
  • YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO YOUR HEART AND YOU NEED
  • 00:19:44.080 --> 00:19:46.010
  • TO SPEAK THE RIGHT THINGS TO YOUR HEART.
  • 00:19:46.040 --> 00:19:47.280
  • WHEN ENVY AND STRIFE AND BITTERNESS CREEP UP,
  • 00:19:48.010 --> 00:19:51.120
  • YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO YOUR HEART
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:52.100
  • AND SAY, "THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU LIVE.
  • 00:19:52.130 --> 00:19:54.270
  • "YOU DON'T DWELL IN HERE, THIS IS THE HEART OF CHRIST,
  • 00:19:55.000 --> 00:19:57.190
  • "AND THIS IS A HEART OF DEVOTION.
  • 00:19:57.220 --> 00:19:59.090
  • "THIS IS A HEAT OF HUMILITY, THIS IS A HEART OF SERVICE,
  • 00:19:59.120 --> 00:20:02.090
  • "AND I'M GONNA SERVE THE KING,
  • 00:20:02.120 --> 00:20:03.220
  • "AND I'M NOT GONNA ALLOW ANYTHING INTO MY HEART
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:06.040
  • "THAT DOESN'T REFLECT THE NATURE OF JESUS
  • 00:20:06.070 --> 00:20:08.100
  • "THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE CHARACTER OF JESUS.
  • 00:20:08.130 --> 00:20:10.170
  • "I'M NOT GONNA ALLOW THAT IN."
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:12.120
  • WATCH THIS, 'CAUSE WHEN YOU SPEAK
  • 00:20:12.150 --> 00:20:13.220
  • TO YOUR HEART, GOD'S LISTENING.
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:17.090
  • GOD SAYS BECAUSE THIS WAS IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:21.020
  • - YOU KNOW, I PRAYED THAT WORD BLESSED YOU
  • 00:20:21.050 --> 00:20:23.020
  • AS MUCH AS IT DID ME.
  • 00:20:23.050 --> 00:20:24.170
  • THIS IS NOT A WORD FOR NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:20:24.200 --> 00:20:26.160
  • THIS IS A WORD FOR RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:28.130
  • YES, GOD WANTS THAT FOR ME.
  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:30.290
  • HE'S GIVING IT TO ME AND I WILL LIVE IN THE PROMISE.
  • 00:20:31.020 --> 00:20:34.200
  • WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THAT LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE IN YOUR GOD.
  • 00:20:34.230 --> 00:20:38.100
  • HE'S NOT JUST MY GOD OR THE GOD OF PREACHERS
  • 00:20:38.130 --> 00:20:40.190
  • THAT YOU LISTEN TO ON TBN, HE IS YOUR GOD.
  • 00:20:40.220 --> 00:20:43.240
  • WHEN THAT VEIL WAS RIPPED FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
  • 00:20:43.270 --> 00:20:46.170
  • WHEN JESUS DIED,
  • 00:20:46.200 --> 00:20:47.210
  • THAT GAVE US ACCESS TO THE FATHER.
  • 00:20:47.240 --> 00:20:49.240
  • SO THERE IS NO BIG ME AND LITTLE YOU.
  • 00:20:49.270 --> 00:20:51.280
  • WE ALL HAVE THE SAME ACCESS.
  • 00:20:52.010 --> 00:20:53.210
  • SO, USE YOUR ACCESS, USE YOUR KEY,
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:56.110
  • AND RUN INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE GOD WHO LOVES YOU.
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:59.050

  • AND MOST OF THE TIME IT'S NOT NEGOTIABLE.

  • IT'S VERY INTERESTING
  • 00:22:00.220 --> 00:22:01.260
  • THAT SOMETIMES I FOUND MYSELF MINIMIZING WHAT GOD WANTS
  • 00:22:01.290 --> 00:22:05.090
  • TO DO IN ME BY ONLY GIVING WHAT I THINK
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:08.210
  • AS OPPOSED TO ASKING THE LORD WHAT HE THINKS.
  • 00:22:08.240 --> 00:22:11.130
  • I'M ASKING YOU TO PRAY IN A WAY
  • 00:22:11.160 --> 00:22:13.290
