  • - I wanna go to Numbers 21.
  • 00:00:34.240 --> 00:00:37.240
  • "Then they journeyed
  • 00:00:37.240 --> 00:00:38.190
  • from Mount Hor by the Way
  • 00:00:38.190 --> 00:00:40.050
  • of the Red Sea,
  • 00:00:40.050 --> 00:00:41.160
  • to go around the land
  • 00:00:41.160 --> 00:00:42.150
  • of Edom."
  • 00:00:42.150 --> 00:00:44.150
  • Listen.
  • 00:00:44.150 --> 00:00:45.030
  • "And the soul
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:46.010
  • of the people
  • 00:00:46.010 --> 00:00:47.050
  • became very discouraged,"
  • 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:50.170
  • because of the way:
  • 00:00:50.170 --> 00:00:51.230
  • "Along the way."
  • 00:00:51.230 --> 00:00:53.140
  • One translation says,
  • 00:00:53.140 --> 00:00:54.100
  • "Because of the way
  • 00:00:54.100 --> 00:00:55.120
  • God led them."
  • 00:00:55.120 --> 00:00:57.040
  • "And the people
  • 00:00:57.040 --> 00:00:57.250
  • spoke against God
  • 00:00:57.250 --> 00:00:59.050
  • and against Moses:
  • 00:00:59.050 --> 00:01:00.170
  • 'Why have you brought us
  • 00:01:00.170 --> 00:01:01.120
  • out of Egypt to die
  • 00:01:01.120 --> 00:01:02.210
  • in the wilderness?
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:03.120
  • For there is no food,
  • 00:01:03.120 --> 00:01:04.110
  • no water, our soul loathes
  • 00:01:04.110 --> 00:01:06.080
  • this worthless bread.'"
  • 00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:08.230
  • "So the Lord sent
  • 00:01:08.230 --> 00:01:09.110
  • fiery serpents among them,
  • 00:01:09.130 --> 00:01:12.130
  • and they bit the people.
  • 00:01:12.130 --> 00:01:14.050
  • And many of the people
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:14.290
  • of Israel died.
  • 00:01:14.290 --> 00:01:16.190
  • Therefore the people
  • 00:01:16.190 --> 00:01:17.260
  • came to Moses, and said,
  • 00:01:17.260 --> 00:01:19.190
  • 'We have sinned,'" --
  • 00:01:19.190 --> 00:01:21.090
  • they got a revelation.
  • 00:01:21.090 --> 00:01:22.260
  • "'We have sinned,
  • 00:01:22.260 --> 00:01:24.170
  • for we have spoken
  • 00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:25.150
  • against the Lord
  • 00:01:25.150 --> 00:01:26.220
  • and against you.
  • 00:01:26.220 --> 00:01:28.160
  • Pray to the Lord
  • 00:01:28.160 --> 00:01:29.170
  • that He take away
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:30.040
  • the serpents from us.'
  • 00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:31.270
  • So Moses prayed
  • 00:01:31.270 --> 00:01:32.210
  • for the people."
  • 00:01:32.210 --> 00:01:34.120
  • "Then the Lord
  • 00:01:34.120 --> 00:01:34.260
  • said to Moses,
  • 00:01:34.260 --> 00:01:35.210
  • 'Make a fiery serpent,
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:37.100
  • and set it on a pole.
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:38.030
  • And it shall be that everyone
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:42.230
  • who is bitten,
  • 00:01:42.230 --> 00:01:44.110
  • when he looks at it,
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:46.030
  • shall live.'
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:47.220
  • So Moses made
  • 00:01:47.220 --> 00:01:48.060
  • a bronze serpent,
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:49.250
  • put it on a pole."
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:51.010
  • Raised it up.
  • 00:01:51.010 --> 00:01:52.050
  • "And so it was,
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:54.040
  • if a serpent
  • 00:01:54.040 --> 00:01:54.240
  • had bitten anyone,
  • 00:01:54.240 --> 00:01:55.250
  • when he looked
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:58.170
  • at the bronze serpent,
  • 00:01:58.170 --> 00:02:00.090
  • he lived."
  • 00:02:00.090 --> 00:02:02.090
  • I wanna talk to you
  • 00:02:02.090 --> 00:02:03.040
  • for a few moments,
  • 00:02:03.040 --> 00:02:03.220
  • I'll give you my title
  • 00:02:03.220 --> 00:02:04.190
  • in just a minute,
  • 00:02:04.190 --> 00:02:05.260
  • but I'm focusing
  • 00:02:05.260 --> 00:02:07.010
  • on the theme of the danger,
  • 00:02:07.010 --> 00:02:09.020
  • the great, great, great,
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:10.060
  • great danger, of discouragement.
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:14.100
  • And I'm gonna give you
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:15.020
  • the remedy, I'm gonna give you
  • 00:02:15.020 --> 00:02:16.060
  • the answer to it.
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:18.210
  • In the Christmas classic,
  • 00:02:18.210 --> 00:02:21.040
  • "It's a Wonderful Life",
  • 00:02:21.040 --> 00:02:23.040
  • and if you've not seen
  • 00:02:23.040 --> 00:02:23.280
  • "It's a Wonderful Life",
  • 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:25.170
  • you will probably not go up
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:27.000
  • in the Rapture.
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:27.250
  • Amen.
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:28.110
  • [laughter]
  • 00:02:28.110 --> 00:02:29.040
  • How many of you
  • 00:02:29.040 --> 00:02:29.190
  • have ever seen that movie,
  • 00:02:29.190 --> 00:02:30.270
  • "It's a Wonderful Life"?
  • 00:02:30.270 --> 00:02:33.240
  • Well, in that movie,
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:35.120
  • the main character is a guy
  • 00:02:35.120 --> 00:02:36.200
  • by the name of George Bailey.
  • 00:02:36.200 --> 00:02:38.260
  • And George Bailey's a good guy,
  • 00:02:38.260 --> 00:02:40.120
  • but he gets extremely
  • 00:02:40.120 --> 00:02:42.240
  • in hard times and discouraged
  • 00:02:42.240 --> 00:02:43.120
  • and even contemplates suicide.
  • 00:02:43.130 --> 00:02:46.130
  • But thank God
  • 00:02:46.130 --> 00:02:46.280
  • for the power of friendship.
  • 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:48.170
  • He had some friends
  • 00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:49.020
  • who got together
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:50.010
  • and prayed for him.
  • 00:02:50.010 --> 00:02:51.130
  • And when they prayed,
  • 00:02:51.130 --> 00:02:52.160
  • in the movie, it touches heaven,
  • 00:02:53.250 --> 00:02:56.250
  • and there is an angel
  • 00:02:56.250 --> 00:02:59.000
  • who is in charge
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:02:59.200
  • of all the angels in heaven,
  • 00:02:59.200 --> 00:03:01.100
  • and he turns to one
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:02.100
  • of the lesser angels,
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:04.090
  • and he says, "It's time
  • 00:03:04.090 --> 00:03:07.010
  • for you to earn your wings,
  • 00:03:07.010 --> 00:03:09.060
  • and your assignment,
  • 00:03:09.060 --> 00:03:11.020
  • if you wanna earn your wings,
  • 00:03:11.020 --> 00:03:12.270
  • you'll get your wings
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:13.180
  • if you succeed in this.
  • 00:03:13.180 --> 00:03:15.080
  • Your assignment is to go down
  • 00:03:15.080 --> 00:03:16.190
  • and help George Bailey."
  • 00:03:16.190 --> 00:03:19.090
  • And the inferior angel
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:21.040
  • said to the superior angel,
  • 00:03:21.040 --> 00:03:22.260
  • "Well, before I go, tell me,
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:24.240
  • what's wrong
  • 00:03:24.240 --> 00:03:25.120
  • with George Bailey?
  • 00:03:25.120 --> 00:03:26.160
  • Is he sick?
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:27.120
  • Does he got some
  • 00:03:27.120 --> 00:03:28.120
  • horrible disease?"
  • 00:03:28.120 --> 00:03:29.210
  • And the superior angel's answer
  • 00:03:29.210 --> 00:03:32.160
  • is a classic.
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:34.060
  • He said, "Worse than that,
  • 00:03:34.100 --> 00:03:37.100
  • he is discouraged."
  • 00:03:37.120 --> 00:03:40.120
  • Worse than some
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:41.100
  • horrible disease,
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:43.270
  • he is discouraged.
  • 00:03:43.270 --> 00:03:45.090
  • The devil knows
  • 00:03:45.090 --> 00:03:46.140
  • that the greatest thing
  • 00:03:46.140 --> 00:03:47.280
  • he can use against
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:49.040
  • the believer
  • 00:03:49.040 --> 00:03:51.010
  • is discouragement.
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:52.230
  • Because you're never
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:53.180
  • really defeated
  • 00:03:53.180 --> 00:03:54.190
  • until you're defeated
  • 00:03:54.190 --> 00:03:55.170
  • on the inside.
  • 00:03:55.170 --> 00:03:57.230
  • I believe that we need
  • 00:03:57.230 --> 00:03:58.130
  • to understand that the people
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:00.140
  • of God were discouraged.
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:02.170
  • The people of God,
  • 00:04:02.170 --> 00:04:03.190
  • not the devil's crowd.
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:05.090
  • It's possible for the people
  • 00:04:05.090 --> 00:04:07.170
  • of God to get low,
  • 00:04:07.170 --> 00:04:09.270
  • and get discouraged.
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:11.010
  • And I just wanna say
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:12.090
  • that probably nobody
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:14.030
  • walked in here today --
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:15.280
  • when we get discouraged,
  • 00:04:15.280 --> 00:04:16.250
  • we almost feel ashamed,
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:18.200
  • we almost feel embarrassed,
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:19.280
  • we almost feel guilty.
  • 00:04:19.280 --> 00:04:21.070
  • We don't anybody to know
  • 00:04:21.070 --> 00:04:22.120
  • that we're discouraged.
  • 00:04:22.120 --> 00:04:23.160
  • I doubt when you turned
  • 00:04:23.160 --> 00:04:24.190
  • to your neighbor, and said,
  • 00:04:24.190 --> 00:04:25.260
  • "Hello," or whatever,
  • 00:04:25.260 --> 00:04:27.260
  • they spoke up and said,
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:28.150
  • "I'm really discouraged today.
  • 00:04:28.150 --> 00:04:29.270
  • I feel like quitting.
  • 00:04:29.270 --> 00:04:30.220
  • I'm thinking about just --
  • 00:04:30.220 --> 00:04:32.120
  • I'll tell you, I've had it.
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:34.000
  • It's been," --
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:34.200
  • nobody does that,
  • 00:04:34.200 --> 00:04:36.200
  • and yet, it's almost like
  • 00:04:36.200 --> 00:04:37.220
  • we ignore the dangers
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:39.170
  • of prolonged discouragement.
  • 00:04:41.030 --> 00:04:44.030
  • When you understand that,
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:45.060
  • what really
  • 00:04:45.060 --> 00:04:45.290
  • causes discouragement
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:47.140
  • is given in this text,
  • 00:04:47.140 --> 00:04:48.240
  • the Bible said
  • 00:04:48.240 --> 00:04:49.130
  • they were discouraged
  • 00:04:49.130 --> 00:04:50.100
  • because of the way.
  • 00:04:50.100 --> 00:04:51.270
  • They were discouraged
  • 00:04:51.270 --> 00:04:52.280
  • because of the way of God.
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:55.240
  • They were discouraged
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:56.120
  • because of the why of God.
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:58.260
  • They were saying,
  • 00:04:58.260 --> 00:04:59.170
  • "Why are we in this desert?
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:00.180
  • Why are we going through this?
  • 00:05:00.180 --> 00:05:02.110
  • Why are we
  • 00:05:02.110 --> 00:05:03.010
  • in this wilderness?
  • 00:05:03.010 --> 00:05:03.270
  • Why?"
  • 00:05:03.270 --> 00:05:04.160
  • The way of God,
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:06.070
  • the why of God,
  • 00:05:06.070 --> 00:05:08.030
  • and then the wait,
  • 00:05:08.030 --> 00:05:09.260
  • the waiting on God.
  • 00:05:09.260 --> 00:05:11.220
  • It's been too long.
  • 00:05:11.220 --> 00:05:13.230
  • Something should've
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:14.140
  • happened by now.
  • 00:05:14.140 --> 00:05:15.170
  • And usually,
  • 00:05:15.170 --> 00:05:16.020
  • when people get discouraged,
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:17.130
  • it's because of the way
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:18.160
  • that God is leading them.
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:20.170
  • You thought
  • 00:05:20.170 --> 00:05:21.010
  • it would be an easy way,
  • 00:05:21.010 --> 00:05:22.120
  • and it's a hard,
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:23.160
  • wilderness way,
  • 00:05:23.160 --> 00:05:24.120
  • and on top of that,
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:25.130
  • the why of God.
  • 00:05:25.130 --> 00:05:26.290
  • When you don't have answers
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:27.290
  • for your questions,
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:29.110
  • no explanations as to why
  • 00:05:29.110 --> 00:05:31.210
  • it seems everything's
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:32.190
  • going wrong,
  • 00:05:32.190 --> 00:05:33.140
  • and then on top of that,
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:34.170
  • you're waiting
  • 00:05:34.170 --> 00:05:35.060
  • and waiting and waiting.
  • 00:05:35.060 --> 00:05:37.010
  • This breeds discouragement.
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:40.180
  • Discouragement is born
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:41.260
  • when we compare ourselves
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:43.040
  • with somebody else.
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:45.110
  • When we begin to compare
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:46.250
  • ourselves with somebody else,
  • 00:05:46.250 --> 00:05:48.120
  • but let me tell you
  • 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:49.000
  • what ought to cause great joy
  • 00:05:49.000 --> 00:05:50.140
  • to come to your life.
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:52.000
  • Is if you'd stop comparing
  • 00:05:52.000 --> 00:05:53.050
  • yourself to other people,
  • 00:05:53.050 --> 00:05:55.160
  • and you would just remember
  • 00:05:55.160 --> 00:05:57.050
  • where you came from.
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:58.290
  • And remember
  • 00:05:58.290 --> 00:05:59.150
  • where you started.
  • 00:05:59.150 --> 00:06:01.040
  • And remember how much God
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:04.000
  • has blessed you.
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:06.070
  • You're doing more.
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:07.150
  • You're seeing more.
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:08.270
  • You're achieving more.
  • 00:06:08.270 --> 00:06:10.200
  • But if you start
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:11.100
  • comparing yourself
  • 00:06:11.100 --> 00:06:12.140
  • with someone else,
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:13.180
  • you can get discouraged,
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:14.250
  • because they're doing more,
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:16.090
  • maybe, than you're doing.
  • 00:06:16.090 --> 00:06:17.240
  • But the greatest way
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.050
  • to get on your feet
  • 00:06:19.050 --> 00:06:20.010
  • and praise the Lord
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:20.290
  • is just think about
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:21.180
  • where I came from.
  • 00:06:21.180 --> 00:06:22.290
  • Just think about
  • 00:06:22.290 --> 00:06:23.220
  • what God started me out as,
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:26.170
  • and where I am today,
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:28.220
  • and it's encouraging
  • 00:06:28.220 --> 00:06:31.090
  • to not compare yourself
  • 00:06:31.090 --> 00:06:32.260
  • with others, but to remember
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.040
  • how far you've come,
  • 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:35.170
  • and where you started.
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:36.250
  • So everybody give Him
  • 00:06:36.250 --> 00:06:37.220
  • the praise for that.
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:39.050
  • Think about that
  • 00:06:39.050 --> 00:06:39.200
  • for just a moment.
  • 00:06:39.200 --> 00:06:40.220
  • Let a little firecracker
  • 00:06:40.220 --> 00:06:42.070
  • go off in your soul right there.
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:45.000
  • I mean, look at you.
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:45.240
  • Look at the life you've got.
  • 00:06:45.240 --> 00:06:47.130
  • Look at the house you've got.
  • 00:06:47.130 --> 00:06:49.020
  • Look at the car you've got.
  • 00:06:49.020 --> 00:06:50.080
  • Look at how good God's
  • 00:06:50.080 --> 00:06:51.180
  • blessed you,
  • 00:06:51.180 --> 00:06:53.010
  • and you're discouraged,
  • 00:06:53.010 --> 00:06:54.140
  • 'cause you're comparing yourself
  • 00:06:54.140 --> 00:06:55.200
  • to somebody else.
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:06:59.110
  • Another area
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:06:59.260
  • that causes discouragement,
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:01.240
  • and this is so important,
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:03.010
  • is trying to force fruit
  • 00:07:03.010 --> 00:07:05.130
  • out of season.
  • 00:07:06.020 --> 00:07:09.020
  • The Bible said
  • 00:07:09.020 --> 00:07:09.190
  • as long as the earth exists,
  • 00:07:09.190 --> 00:07:11.130
  • there's seed,
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:12.240
  • time, and harvest.
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.270
  • There's seed,
  • 00:07:14.270 --> 00:07:15.210
  • there's the promise,
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:16.260
  • and then there's the promise,
  • 00:07:16.260 --> 00:07:18.120
  • but there's time
  • 00:07:18.120 --> 00:07:19.260
  • between seed time, notice,
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:22.200
  • seed, time, promise.
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:26.080
  • You can't ignore the time.
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:28.100
  • When a woman is pregnant,
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:30.120
  • the doctor gives her
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:31.020
  • a due date.
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:32.120
  • And that's why
  • 00:07:32.120 --> 00:07:32.260
  • the scripture said,
  • 00:07:32.260 --> 00:07:34.000
  • "Do not be weary in well-doing,
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:36.130
  • for there is a season
  • 00:07:36.130 --> 00:07:38.030
  • called due season."
  • 00:07:38.030 --> 00:07:40.130
  • And in due season,
  • 00:07:40.130 --> 00:07:41.250
  • you will reap
  • 00:07:41.250 --> 00:07:42.280
  • if you don't faint.
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:44.190
  • So hear the Word
  • 00:07:44.190 --> 00:07:45.260
  • of the Lord today.
  • 00:07:45.260 --> 00:07:47.010
  • Many people are trying
  • 00:07:47.010 --> 00:07:48.070
  • to get fruit in the season
  • 00:07:48.070 --> 00:07:51.070
  • before it's due.
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.280
  • And the point is,
  • 00:07:52.280 --> 00:07:53.250
  • you cannot force something
  • 00:07:53.250 --> 00:07:56.120
  • to happen out of season,
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:58.010
  • and you have to learn to wait.
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.190
  • But many people
  • 00:07:59.190 --> 00:08:00.120
  • get discouraged.
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:01.250
  • Another symptom
  • 00:08:01.250 --> 00:08:02.240
  • of discouragement
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:03.220
  • is the loss of vision.
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:07.090
  • Discouragement will make
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:09.070
  • your vision become blurry
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:10.170
  • and unclear.
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:12.160
  • And when your vision
  • 00:08:12.160 --> 00:08:13.100
  • in life becomes blurry
  • 00:08:13.100 --> 00:08:14.160
  • and unclear,
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:15.250
  • and you don't know
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:16.140
  • where you're going,
  • 00:08:16.140 --> 00:08:17.090
  • and you had some
  • 00:08:17.090 --> 00:08:18.120
  • kind of setback,
  • 00:08:18.120 --> 00:08:19.010
  • and you feel --
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:19.190
  • maybe, you broke up
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:21.150
  • with somebody,
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:22.050
  • and you saw yourself
  • 00:08:22.050 --> 00:08:23.120
  • with them
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:23.270
  • for the rest of your life,
  • 00:08:23.270 --> 00:08:25.010
  • and now, everything's blurry
  • 00:08:25.010 --> 00:08:26.210
  • and unclear.
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:28.030
  • That's discouragement.
  • 00:08:28.030 --> 00:08:30.100
  • You need to recognize it.
  • 00:08:30.100 --> 00:08:31.180
  • It's a dangerous thing
  • 00:08:31.180 --> 00:08:32.220
  • to not recognize
  • 00:08:32.220 --> 00:08:33.280
  • when you're really discouraged.
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:35.250
  • Discouragement will cause a loss
  • 00:08:35.250 --> 00:08:37.170
  • of enthusiasm about life,
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:39.230
  • about God, about purpose,
  • 00:08:39.230 --> 00:08:41.150
  • about life in general,
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:43.170
  • about everything.
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:45.170
  • A discouraged person
  • 00:08:45.170 --> 00:08:46.160
  • is a person who has lost
  • 00:08:46.160 --> 00:08:48.130
  • passion and enthusiasm.
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:51.270
  • Isolation is a glaring symptom
  • 00:08:52.010 --> 00:08:55.010
  • of discouragement.
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:57.030
  • The devil wants you
  • 00:08:57.030 --> 00:08:58.030
  • to isolate yourself,
  • 00:08:58.030 --> 00:09:00.140
  • pull away from people,
  • 00:09:00.140 --> 00:09:01.250
  • pull away from family,
  • 00:09:01.250 --> 00:09:03.160
  • pull away from church,
  • 00:09:03.160 --> 00:09:05.020
  • get discouraged,
  • 00:09:05.020 --> 00:09:06.200
  • get depressed,
  • 00:09:06.200 --> 00:09:07.240
  • cave in, emotionally,
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:10.000
  • and separate,
  • 00:09:10.000 --> 00:09:12.010
  • isolate yourself, so --
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:12.280
  • and when --
  • 00:09:12.280 --> 00:09:13.230
  • any time the enemy
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:14.160
  • isolates you,
  • 00:09:14.160 --> 00:09:15.220
  • it's to devastate you.
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:18.180
  • When you feel least like coming,
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:21.060
  • that's the sign
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:22.150
  • you need to get here the most.
  • 00:09:23.060 --> 00:09:26.060
  • Another symptom
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:26.270
  • of discouragement is paralysis.
  • 00:09:27.210 --> 00:09:30.210
  • Discouragement will freeze
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:32.060
  • your actions.
  • 00:09:32.060 --> 00:09:34.060
  • The paralysis of analysis.
  • 00:09:34.060 --> 00:09:36.040
  • You're discouraged,
  • 00:09:36.040 --> 00:09:38.040
  • and you're afraid to do anything
  • 00:09:38.040 --> 00:09:39.280
  • and take any chance
  • 00:09:39.280 --> 00:09:41.100
  • and any risk.
  • 00:09:41.100 --> 00:09:42.260
  • That's why when Elijah
  • 00:09:42.260 --> 00:09:44.110
  • got discouraged
  • 00:09:44.110 --> 00:09:45.210
  • and ran from Jezebel
  • 00:09:45.210 --> 00:09:46.260
  • and went in a cave
  • 00:09:46.260 --> 00:09:47.270
  • of discouragement,
  • 00:09:47.270 --> 00:09:48.240
  • God came and said,
  • 00:09:48.240 --> 00:09:50.140
  • "How long will you halt
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:52.250
  • between two opinions?"
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:54.250
  • In other words, you know,
  • 00:09:54.250 --> 00:09:56.210
  • if you're not careful,
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:57.200
  • discouragement will halt
  • 00:09:57.200 --> 00:09:58.230
  • your advancement.
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:10:00.140
  • It'll cause you
  • 00:10:00.140 --> 00:10:01.010
  • to just not trust
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:02.230
  • your own judgment,
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:04.000
  • and have the courage
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:04.280
  • to make the right decision.
  • 00:10:04.280 --> 00:10:07.130
  • Discouragement, notice
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:08.220
  • this in the Bible,
  • 00:10:08.220 --> 00:10:09.240
  • will affect your speech.
  • 00:10:09.240 --> 00:10:11.130
  • When they got discouraged,
  • 00:10:11.130 --> 00:10:12.060
  • they started murmuring
  • 00:10:12.060 --> 00:10:13.110
  • and complaining,
  • 00:10:13.110 --> 00:10:14.200
  • and discouragement always
  • 00:10:14.200 --> 00:10:15.280
  • shows up in your talk.
  • 00:10:15.280 --> 00:10:18.110
  • Your words will be slurred
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:20.030
  • with negativism.
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:21.220
  • Your words will be slurred
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:23.220
  • with whining and self-pity.
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:26.280
  • Another symptom
  • 00:10:26.280 --> 00:10:27.260
  • and sign of discouragement
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:29.160
  • is a loss of inspiration.
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:32.000
  • A loss of motivation.
  • 00:10:32.000 --> 00:10:33.140
  • A loss of aggression
  • 00:10:33.140 --> 00:10:35.030
  • about life, and get up and --
  • 00:10:35.030 --> 00:10:37.010
  • when your get up
  • 00:10:37.010 --> 00:10:37.290
  • and go has got up and went...
  • 00:10:37.290 --> 00:10:40.210
  • [laughter]
  • 00:10:40.210 --> 00:10:42.030
  • ...you're discouraged.
  • 00:10:42.030 --> 00:10:44.100
  • Discouragement
  • 00:10:44.100 --> 00:10:45.040
  • is the despair
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:46.280
  • of wounded self-love.
  • 00:10:46.280 --> 00:10:49.130
  • Discouragement produces cowards.
  • 00:10:49.130 --> 00:10:52.120
  • The very word discouragement
  • 00:10:52.120 --> 00:10:54.100
  • means to basically
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:55.230
  • just suck the courage out,
  • 00:10:55.230 --> 00:10:57.220
  • drawl and drain the courage
  • 00:10:57.220 --> 00:10:59.080
  • out of a person.
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:00.170
  • To be discouraged
  • 00:11:00.170 --> 00:11:01.170
  • is to lose all courage.
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:04.040
  • You will not step out,
  • 00:11:04.040 --> 00:11:05.160
  • you will not risk,
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:06.160
  • you will not try.
  • 00:11:06.160 --> 00:11:07.250
  • Discouragement will make you
  • 00:11:07.250 --> 00:11:09.060
  • a coward if you let it stay.
  • 00:11:10.050 --> 00:11:13.050
  • And I just wanna pause right
  • 00:11:13.050 --> 00:11:14.130
  • in the middle of this sermon,
  • 00:11:14.130 --> 00:11:16.130
  • 'cause I know I'm preaching
  • 00:11:16.130 --> 00:11:17.040
  • to people by television,
  • 00:11:17.040 --> 00:11:18.130
  • all over the world,
  • 00:11:18.130 --> 00:11:19.110
  • who are discouraged.
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:20.160
  • I wrote this down,
  • 00:11:20.160 --> 00:11:22.020
  • and I want you to let it
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:22.290
  • get in your spirit.
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:24.130
  • I pause in the name of Jesus
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:27.270
  • to come against
  • 00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:28.210
  • negativism,
  • 00:11:28.210 --> 00:11:30.070
  • despair,
  • 00:11:30.070 --> 00:11:31.220
  • hopelessness,
  • 00:11:31.220 --> 00:11:33.020
  • fear,
  • 00:11:33.020 --> 00:11:34.050
  • despondency,
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:35.110
  • depression,
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:37.030
  • disgust,
  • 00:11:37.030 --> 00:11:38.150
  • frustrations,
  • 00:11:38.150 --> 00:11:40.080
  • feelings of failure,
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:41.240
  • thoughts of quitting,
  • 00:11:41.240 --> 00:11:43.190
  • thoughts of giving up,
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:45.110
  • thoughts of suicide.
  • 00:11:45.110 --> 00:11:47.210
  • I'm here today
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:49.100
  • to tell you that God
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:51.080
  • is greater
  • 00:11:51.080 --> 00:11:53.090
  • than your discouragement,
  • 00:11:53.090 --> 00:11:55.170
  • and I call
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:56.180
  • for the power of the name
  • 00:11:56.180 --> 00:11:58.130
  • of Jesus
  • 00:11:58.130 --> 00:12:00.170
  • to release new faith,
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:02.260
  • new vision,
  • 00:12:02.260 --> 00:12:04.120
  • new hope,
  • 00:12:04.120 --> 00:12:06.030
  • new confidence,
  • 00:12:06.030 --> 00:12:07.240
  • new determination,
  • 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:09.070
  • new zeal,
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:10.200
  • new enthusiasm.
  • 00:12:10.200 --> 00:12:12.240
  • Baptize us,
  • 00:12:12.240 --> 00:12:14.090
  • saturate us,
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:16.030
  • marinate us,
  • 00:12:16.030 --> 00:12:18.020
  • with courage.
  • 00:12:18.020 --> 00:12:20.130
  • Be encouraged.
  • 00:12:20.170 --> 00:12:23.170
  • Now, everybody,
  • 00:12:23.170 --> 00:12:24.130
  • shout like you believe
  • 00:12:24.130 --> 00:12:26.010
  • this Book is true.
  • 00:12:26.010 --> 00:12:28.160
  • [applause]
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:29.140
  • Come on,
  • 00:12:29.140 --> 00:12:29.260
  • praise Him a minute.
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:30.260
  • Somebody up in the balcony,
  • 00:12:30.260 --> 00:12:32.150
  • praise Him a minute.
  • 00:12:32.150 --> 00:12:33.220
  • [cheering]
  • 00:12:33.220 --> 00:12:35.260
  • All right, now listen.
  • 00:12:36.040 --> 00:12:39.040
  • 'cause God is greater.
  • 00:12:39.040 --> 00:12:41.160
  • He's greater than gossip.
  • 00:12:41.160 --> 00:12:44.150
  • He's greater than haters.
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:47.180
  • He's greater than people
  • 00:12:47.180 --> 00:12:48.150
  • tearing you up on Facebook.
  • 00:12:50.000 --> 00:12:53.000
  • We have minimized the danger
  • 00:12:53.000 --> 00:12:54.240
  • of discouragement.
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:57.090
  • Don't play with it.
  • 00:12:57.090 --> 00:12:59.090
  • Get help.
  • 00:12:59.090 --> 00:13:01.260
  • There's nothing wrong
  • 00:13:01.260 --> 00:13:02.170
  • with telling somebody,
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:03.230
  • "I'm discouraged, I'm depressed,
  • 00:13:03.230 --> 00:13:05.040
  • and I can't get out.
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:07.010
  • I can't get up."
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:08.090
  • There's no shame in it.
  • 00:13:08.090 --> 00:13:09.280
  • There's nothing wrong
  • 00:13:09.280 --> 00:13:11.010
  • with going
  • 00:13:11.010 --> 00:13:11.120
  • to a good Christian counselor
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:12.260
  • and saying, "Help.
  • 00:13:12.260 --> 00:13:14.230
  • I'm in something
  • 00:13:14.230 --> 00:13:16.100
  • and I can't --
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:17.040
  • I feel --
  • 00:13:17.040 --> 00:13:17.220
  • I just feel
  • 00:13:17.220 --> 00:13:18.080
  • like giving up."
  • 00:13:18.080 --> 00:13:19.040
  • Reach out for help.
  • 00:13:19.040 --> 00:13:21.040
  • Reach out for help,
  • 00:13:21.040 --> 00:13:22.040
  • there's help here.
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:22.250
  • We've been there.
  • 00:13:22.250 --> 00:13:24.200
  • We've been there,
  • 00:13:24.200 --> 00:13:25.090
  • I may need your help
  • 00:13:25.090 --> 00:13:26.050
  • next week, but this week,
  • 00:13:26.050 --> 00:13:27.110
  • I feel pretty good.
  • 00:13:27.110 --> 00:13:28.160
  • I could help you.
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:29.190
  • Somebody could help you.
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:33.060
  • Don't be ashamed to say,
  • 00:13:33.060 --> 00:13:34.000
  • "I'm discouraged."
  • 00:13:34.000 --> 00:13:35.020
  • "How you feeling?"
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:36.000
  • "I don't feel nothing.
  • 00:13:36.000 --> 00:13:37.240
  • I don't feel good,
  • 00:13:37.240 --> 00:13:38.100
  • and I don't feel like
  • 00:13:38.100 --> 00:13:38.290
  • the favor of God
  • 00:13:38.290 --> 00:13:39.260
  • is shining brightly
  • 00:13:39.260 --> 00:13:40.190
  • on my spirit."
  • 00:13:40.190 --> 00:13:41.290
  • I don't feel that.
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:43.280
  • I feel like quitting.
  • 00:13:43.280 --> 00:13:44.250
  • I feel like giving up.
  • 00:13:44.250 --> 00:13:45.290
  • You ever felt that way?
  • 00:13:45.290 --> 00:13:47.190
  • Did God see you through?
  • 00:13:48.100 --> 00:13:51.100
  • Measure your problem
  • 00:13:51.100 --> 00:13:52.090
  • against God, not yourself.
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:56.000
  • We see the devastation
  • 00:13:56.000 --> 00:13:57.250
  • of discouragement in John 1,
  • 00:13:57.250 --> 00:14:00.180
  • when it talks
  • 00:14:00.180 --> 00:14:01.060
  • about John the Baptist,
  • 00:14:01.060 --> 00:14:03.070
  • and when he was first
  • 00:14:03.070 --> 00:14:04.100
  • introduced to Jesus, he said,
  • 00:14:04.100 --> 00:14:06.040
  • "I saw the Spirit
  • 00:14:06.040 --> 00:14:07.060
  • descend like a dove,
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:08.140
  • and it abode upon Him,
  • 00:14:08.140 --> 00:14:11.120
  • and I knew Him."
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:12.250
  • I knew him.
  • 00:14:12.250 --> 00:14:13.220
  • And then, John announced,
  • 00:14:13.220 --> 00:14:14.170
  • "Behold, the Lamb of God.
  • 00:14:14.170 --> 00:14:16.040
  • He's it.
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:16.280
  • I've got
  • 00:14:16.280 --> 00:14:17.120
  • a personal revelation.
  • 00:14:17.120 --> 00:14:18.080
  • I know who He is.
  • 00:14:18.080 --> 00:14:19.110
  • He's the Lamb of God."
  • 00:14:19.110 --> 00:14:20.180
  • And there's rejoicing,
  • 00:14:20.180 --> 00:14:21.180
  • but a few months later,
  • 00:14:21.180 --> 00:14:22.290
  • he's arrested, John is,
  • 00:14:22.290 --> 00:14:24.290
  • and he's in a filthy prison,
  • 00:14:24.290 --> 00:14:26.280
  • Herod's cell, prison,
  • 00:14:26.280 --> 00:14:29.060
  • and he sends his disciples
  • 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:33.110
  • to where Jesus is,
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:35.020
  • because he feels abandoned.
  • 00:14:35.020 --> 00:14:36.130
  • He's discouraged.
  • 00:14:36.130 --> 00:14:38.120
  • And he says, "Ask Him,
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:39.160
  • 'Are You the One?'"
  • 00:14:39.160 --> 00:14:40.100
  • What do you mean,
  • 00:14:40.100 --> 00:14:41.010
  • am I the one?
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:42.080
  • You're the one that said
  • 00:14:42.080 --> 00:14:42.290
  • I was the one.
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:45.190
  • But see the danger
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:46.270
  • of discouragement.
  • 00:14:46.270 --> 00:14:47.250
  • Discouragement will cause you
  • 00:14:47.250 --> 00:14:50.070
  • to question what
  • 00:14:50.070 --> 00:14:51.080
  • you previously affirmed
  • 00:14:51.080 --> 00:14:52.100
  • about your faith in God.
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:55.090
  • Discouragement will begin
  • 00:14:55.090 --> 00:14:56.110
  • to get you
  • 00:14:56.110 --> 00:14:57.020
  • to ask questions about,
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:14:59.110
  • did I really see
  • 00:14:59.110 --> 00:15:00.160
  • that bird descend?
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:02.240
  • Did I --
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:03.080
  • did that really happen?
  • 00:15:03.080 --> 00:15:04.240
  • Did I really hear that voice?
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:06.270
  • Did God really confirm to me?
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:09.060
  • Is Jesus who He really --
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:10.160
  • it'll cause you to question
  • 00:15:10.160 --> 00:15:12.090
  • your spirit visitation,
  • 00:15:12.090 --> 00:15:14.050
  • question your
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:15.000
  • divine demonstration,
  • 00:15:15.000 --> 00:15:16.190
  • and question
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:17.060
  • your personal revelation.
  • 00:15:17.060 --> 00:15:20.040
  • There are things
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:20.200
  • that can come in life,
  • 00:15:20.200 --> 00:15:22.070
  • listen to this, Preacher,
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:23.120
  • that will make you wonder
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:25.230
  • about that bird.
  • 00:15:25.230 --> 00:15:26.260
  • Was it real?
  • 00:15:26.260 --> 00:15:27.290
  • Wonder about that experience
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:29.240
  • that you had in an altar,
  • 00:15:29.240 --> 00:15:31.110
  • was that voice real?
  • 00:15:31.110 --> 00:15:32.290
  • Make you second-guess
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:34.130
  • what you said Jesus was to you.
  • 00:15:35.100 --> 00:15:38.100
  • Make you question
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:39.210
  • the will of God.
  • 00:15:39.210 --> 00:15:41.020
  • Things will come in life
  • 00:15:41.020 --> 00:15:42.220
  • that will make you question
  • 00:15:42.220 --> 00:15:43.180
  • the love of God.
  • 00:15:43.180 --> 00:15:44.250
  • How can a loving God
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:45.200
  • let this happen?
  • 00:15:45.200 --> 00:15:46.250
  • I just proclaim,
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:47.230
  • in the middle of my seasons
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:49.050
  • of discouragement,
  • 00:15:49.050 --> 00:15:50.080
  • there is no God like Jehovah.
  • 00:15:50.080 --> 00:15:53.010
  • I may not see the bird anymore,
  • 00:15:53.010 --> 00:15:55.290
  • I may not hear
  • 00:15:55.290 --> 00:15:56.150
  • the voice anymore,
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:57.200
  • I may not feel the flutter
  • 00:15:57.200 --> 00:15:59.130
  • and the joy of the Lord
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:00.270
  • in this particular season
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:02.210
  • that I may be walking through,
  • 00:16:02.210 --> 00:16:04.040
  • but I declare boldly,
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:06.010
  • there is no God
  • 00:16:06.010 --> 00:16:07.190
  • like Jehovah.
  • 00:16:07.190 --> 00:16:09.040
  • He's still God.
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:11.150
  • [applause]
  • 00:16:11.150 --> 00:16:13.010
  • I want you to see
  • 00:16:13.010 --> 00:16:13.200
  • the doorway to discouragement.
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:15.270
  • In Psalms 73,
  • 00:16:15.270 --> 00:16:18.190
  • David found himself
  • 00:16:18.190 --> 00:16:20.070
  • so discouraged,
  • 00:16:20.070 --> 00:16:21.200
  • he wanted to quit.
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:23.040
  • He said, "Truly,
  • 00:16:23.040 --> 00:16:24.020
  • God is good to Israel,
  • 00:16:24.020 --> 00:16:25.120
  • even to as many
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:26.140
  • as who have a clean heart,"
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:28.090
  • but catch these next words:
  • 00:16:28.090 --> 00:16:29.130
  • "But as for me,
  • 00:16:29.130 --> 00:16:30.290
  • my feet almost slipped,
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:33.100
  • and I became envious," --
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:34.230
  • he says in Psalm 73:13,
  • 00:16:34.230 --> 00:16:36.080
  • "Envious of the wicked."
  • 00:16:36.080 --> 00:16:38.050
  • He's saying something.
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:39.090
  • He's saying, "Oh, I know God
  • 00:16:39.090 --> 00:16:40.130
  • will bless Israel,
  • 00:16:40.130 --> 00:16:41.100
  • but I'm the exception,
  • 00:16:41.100 --> 00:16:43.060
  • and I'm the rule."
  • 00:16:43.060 --> 00:16:44.040
  • That's the --
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:44.170
  • I'm the exception to the rule.
  • 00:16:44.170 --> 00:16:46.190
  • I'm someone
  • 00:16:46.190 --> 00:16:47.140
  • that He can bless Israel
  • 00:16:47.140 --> 00:16:49.030
  • and He can bless Pastor
  • 00:16:49.030 --> 00:16:50.050
  • and He can bless this one
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:51.070
  • and that one, but not me.
  • 00:16:51.070 --> 00:16:52.250
  • That's discouragement talking.
  • 00:16:52.250 --> 00:16:54.220
  • He won't favor me
  • 00:16:54.220 --> 00:16:55.150
  • and help me.
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:56.000
  • He won't bless me.
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:58.150
  • And he was envious
  • 00:16:58.150 --> 00:16:59.240
  • of wicked people.
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:01.140
  • In other words,
  • 00:17:01.140 --> 00:17:02.050
  • he was saying,
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:02.270
  • "I'm living clean,
  • 00:17:02.270 --> 00:17:03.200
  • I'm living right,
  • 00:17:03.200 --> 00:17:04.250
  • and this is not working
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:06.150
  • for me."
  • 00:17:06.150 --> 00:17:07.220
  • This faith in God
  • 00:17:07.220 --> 00:17:09.070
  • is not working.
  • 00:17:09.070 --> 00:17:10.080
  • They're doing better
  • 00:17:10.080 --> 00:17:11.020
  • and they worship idols.
  • 00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:12.080
  • This is not working for me.
  • 00:17:12.080 --> 00:17:14.160
  • This is a discouraged man.
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:15.210
  • The question is,
  • 00:17:15.210 --> 00:17:16.110
  • how did he get there?
  • 00:17:16.110 --> 00:17:17.130
  • You have to back up one verse
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:19.240
  • into the previous chapter.
  • 00:17:19.240 --> 00:17:21.260
  • Psalm 72:20, the last verse,
  • 00:17:22.180 --> 00:17:25.180
  • right before you go
  • 00:17:25.180 --> 00:17:26.030
  • into all that discouragement,
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:27.070
  • catch this.
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:28.000
  • "The prayers of David
  • 00:17:28.000 --> 00:17:29.180
  • the son of Jesse are ended."
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:34.170
  • Please hear me.
  • 00:17:34.170 --> 00:17:36.190
  • The door to discouragement
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:38.070
  • is prayerlessness.
  • 00:17:38.070 --> 00:17:39.220
  • When he said,
  • 00:17:39.220 --> 00:17:40.080
  • "I'm done praying.
  • 00:17:40.080 --> 00:17:42.000
  • I prayed all I'm gonna pray."
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:44.020
  • But guess what?
  • 00:17:44.020 --> 00:17:44.270
  • That opened the door,
  • 00:17:44.270 --> 00:17:45.200
  • and he steps
  • 00:17:45.200 --> 00:17:46.040
  • into that next chapter,
  • 00:17:46.040 --> 00:17:47.190
  • and is full of sliding
  • 00:17:47.190 --> 00:17:49.020
  • and sliding back,
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:50.160
  • and discouragement,
  • 00:17:50.160 --> 00:17:51.220
  • and I'm the exception,
  • 00:17:51.220 --> 00:17:54.060
  • and God's not with me,
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:55.200
  • and I'm going under,
  • 00:17:55.200 --> 00:17:56.260
  • and I'm not gonna make it.
  • 00:17:56.260 --> 00:17:58.240
  • What I'm saying to you
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:17:59.230
  • is that's how
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:01.130
  • you get discouraged,
  • 00:18:01.130 --> 00:18:02.190
  • when you stop praying,
  • 00:18:02.190 --> 00:18:03.240
  • when you stop asking,
  • 00:18:03.240 --> 00:18:05.290
  • when you stop praising,
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:07.100
  • when you stop coming
  • 00:18:07.100 --> 00:18:09.000
  • to church.
  • 00:18:09.000 --> 00:18:09.210
  • Isolating yourself.
  • 00:18:09.210 --> 00:18:11.010
  • You go deeper and deeper
  • 00:18:11.010 --> 00:18:13.180
  • into discouragement.
  • 00:18:13.180 --> 00:18:14.170
  • I'm so glad you came
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:15.150
  • to church today.
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:17.060
  • Because I don't believe
  • 00:18:17.160 --> 00:18:20.160
  • that we have to leave
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:22.050
  • like we came, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:18:22.050 --> 00:18:25.010
  • Elijah got in a cave
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:26.090
  • of discouragement,
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:27.140
  • and God told him
  • 00:18:27.140 --> 00:18:28.070
  • to do something.
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:29.050
  • He said, "All right.
  • 00:18:29.050 --> 00:18:30.200
  • I want you to come out
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:31.180
  • of this cave of discouragement.
  • 00:18:31.180 --> 00:18:32.180
  • Jezebel ran you in here,
  • 00:18:32.180 --> 00:18:34.090
  • Elijah, and you've been
  • 00:18:34.090 --> 00:18:35.030
  • discouraged, and you said,
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:36.090
  • 'Kill me,' and,
  • 00:18:36.090 --> 00:18:37.010
  • 'I feel like quitting.'"
  • 00:18:37.010 --> 00:18:37.230
  • But He said, "Here's what
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:38.270
  • I want you to do.
  • 00:18:38.270 --> 00:18:39.210
  • If you wanna come out
  • 00:18:39.210 --> 00:18:40.140
  • of your cave of discouragement,
  • 00:18:40.140 --> 00:18:41.140
  • go anoint three people."
  • 00:18:41.140 --> 00:18:43.110
  • And He told him to go --
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:44.110
  • in other words,
  • 00:18:44.110 --> 00:18:44.250
  • start sharing your anointing
  • 00:18:44.250 --> 00:18:46.150
  • if you wanna be encouraged.
  • 00:18:46.150 --> 00:18:49.080
  • Now, you gotta get this.
  • 00:18:49.080 --> 00:18:51.250
  • If you wanna be encouraged,
  • 00:18:51.250 --> 00:18:53.210
  • you've got to go
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:54.080
  • encourage somebody.
  • 00:18:54.080 --> 00:18:56.280
  • As long as you're focused on me,
  • 00:18:56.280 --> 00:18:59.150
  • and self, and pity,
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:01.070
  • you're not going
  • 00:19:01.070 --> 00:19:02.030
  • to get encouraged.
  • 00:19:02.030 --> 00:19:04.020
  • But He said, "I want you
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:05.240
  • to start sharing
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:06.110
  • your anointing."
  • 00:19:06.110 --> 00:19:08.020
  • You know what?
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:08.260
  • I'm anointed to preach.
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:10.160
  • I'm anointed to sing
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:12.000
  • and play.
  • 00:19:12.000 --> 00:19:12.180
  • I know that.
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:14.090
  • And you know
  • 00:19:14.090 --> 00:19:14.210
  • what I've learned?
  • 00:19:14.210 --> 00:19:15.140
  • That when I'm discouraged,
  • 00:19:15.140 --> 00:19:16.250
  • if I'll share my anointing,
  • 00:19:16.250 --> 00:19:19.000
  • if I'll preach in those seasons
  • 00:19:19.000 --> 00:19:20.270
  • when I'm discouraged,
  • 00:19:20.270 --> 00:19:22.080
  • that's when some
  • 00:19:22.080 --> 00:19:23.070
  • of my best sermons come,
  • 00:19:23.070 --> 00:19:24.230
  • when I sing and worship
  • 00:19:24.230 --> 00:19:25.290
  • when I'm a little discouraged,
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:27.220
  • seems like that really touches
  • 00:19:27.220 --> 00:19:29.090
  • people's hearts.
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:30.120
  • They don't know
  • 00:19:30.120 --> 00:19:30.250
  • what I'm going through,
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:31.220
  • but there's something about
  • 00:19:31.220 --> 00:19:32.280
  • when you are in your own cave
  • 00:19:32.280 --> 00:19:34.200
  • of discouragement,
  • 00:19:34.200 --> 00:19:36.000
  • you begin to share
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:37.210
  • the anointing.
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:38.040
  • He said, "Elijah,
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:38.270
  • go anoint some people."
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:40.160
  • And too many times,
  • 00:19:40.160 --> 00:19:41.230
  • we get so centered --
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:43.080
  • why don't you call somebody
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:44.180
  • if you're discouraged,
  • 00:19:44.180 --> 00:19:45.170
  • and encourage them?
  • 00:19:45.170 --> 00:19:46.260
  • Why don't you check up
  • 00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:47.220
  • on somebody?
  • 00:19:47.220 --> 00:19:48.200
  • Why don't you hug somebody?
  • 00:19:48.200 --> 00:19:49.280
  • Why don't you take
  • 00:19:49.280 --> 00:19:50.160
  • somebody out to lunch?
  • 00:19:50.160 --> 00:19:51.130
  • Why don't you
  • 00:19:51.130 --> 00:19:52.100
  • encourage somebody?
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:54.060
  • And when you share
  • 00:19:54.060 --> 00:19:54.290
  • your anointing,
  • 00:19:54.290 --> 00:19:57.220
  • God will bring you out.
  • 00:19:57.220 --> 00:20:00.200
  • I wanna end with this.
  • 00:20:00.200 --> 00:20:01.270
  • Pray, praise,
  • 00:20:02.010 --> 00:20:05.010
  • lift Him up,
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:06.010
  • look up, keep looking up,
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:12.070
  • because the devil
  • 00:20:12.070 --> 00:20:13.060
  • doesn't mind you celebrating
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:15.100
  • and remembering that time
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:17.140
  • in your past
  • 00:20:17.140 --> 00:20:18.230
  • that you made it through.
  • 00:20:18.230 --> 00:20:20.140
  • And he really doesn't mind
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:21.160
  • you believing that some time,
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:25.230
  • way out there,
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:27.210
  • God's gonna turn
  • 00:20:27.210 --> 00:20:28.070
  • your battle.
  • 00:20:28.070 --> 00:20:29.240
  • I'm going to see
  • 00:20:29.240 --> 00:20:31.030
  • a victory way out there.
  • 00:20:31.080 --> 00:20:34.080
  • That time, some time,
  • 00:20:34.080 --> 00:20:36.080
  • but the thing
  • 00:20:36.080 --> 00:20:36.260
  • that makes hell nervous,
  • 00:20:37.160 --> 00:20:40.160
  • and the thing the enemy
  • 00:20:40.160 --> 00:20:41.130
  • wants to do to keep --
  • 00:20:41.130 --> 00:20:42.180
  • that will keep you
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:44.070
  • in discouragement
  • 00:20:44.070 --> 00:20:44.290
  • is convince you
  • 00:20:44.290 --> 00:20:45.290
  • that this time,
  • 00:20:45.290 --> 00:20:48.170
  • you're not gonna make it.
  • 00:20:48.170 --> 00:20:50.130
  • This time,
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:51.280
  • you're not gonna get out.
  • 00:20:51.280 --> 00:20:54.070
  • This time, there's no way
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:57.130
  • you're going to bounce back.
  • 00:20:57.130 --> 00:21:00.070
  • But I've got a message
  • 00:21:00.070 --> 00:21:01.080
  • for the devil.
  • 00:21:01.080 --> 00:21:04.010
  • And I almost wrote it
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:04.190
  • on my shoes.
  • 00:21:07.180 --> 00:21:10.180
  • That time --
  • 00:21:10.180 --> 00:21:13.010
  • here's the title
  • 00:21:13.010 --> 00:21:14.030
  • of my sermon, "That Time,
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:18.050
  • This Time, and Every Time",
  • 00:21:19.280 --> 00:21:22.280
  • God will not fail me.
  • 00:21:22.280 --> 00:21:25.050
  • [applause]
  • 00:21:25.050 --> 00:21:26.100
  • Everybody say,
  • 00:21:26.100 --> 00:21:27.200
  • "That time,
  • 00:21:27.200 --> 00:21:29.280
  • this time,
  • 00:21:29.280 --> 00:21:31.220
  • and every time,
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:34.030
  • God will not forget me.
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:37.030
  • God will not forsake me.
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:39.270
  • God will not fail me."
  • 00:21:39.270 --> 00:21:41.150
  • Now, wait a minute.
  • 00:21:41.150 --> 00:21:42.050
  • That time, how many of you've
  • 00:21:42.050 --> 00:21:43.230
  • got a that time
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:44.270
  • that you can look back on?
  • 00:21:44.270 --> 00:21:47.060
  • This time, and every time.
  • 00:21:50.070 --> 00:21:53.070
  • God will not fail me.

  • God's healing you.
  • 00:22:02.110 --> 00:22:05.110
  • If you need help, get help.
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:08.080
  • But God brought you
  • 00:22:08.080 --> 00:22:09.030
  • to this service this morning
  • 00:22:09.030 --> 00:22:12.030
  • to heal you,
  • 00:22:12.030 --> 00:22:14.210
  • of chronic discouragement.
  • 00:22:15.170 --> 00:22:18.170
  • David encouraged himself
  • 00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:22.110
  • in the Lord.
  • 00:22:22.110 --> 00:22:25.050
  • And when you get that down
  • 00:22:25.050 --> 00:22:26.070
  • in your soul like I got it,
  • 00:22:26.070 --> 00:22:29.050
  • I got me a little new thing
  • 00:22:29.050 --> 00:22:30.020
  • I'm gonna tell the devil
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:30.260
  • from now on.
  • 00:22:30.260 --> 00:22:31.100
  • If you don't get nothing else

  • out of this sermon,
  • 00:22:32.100 --> 00:22:33.160
  • take home this piece.
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:36.190
  • That time,
  • 00:22:36.190 --> 00:22:38.280
  • this time,
  • 00:22:38.280 --> 00:22:40.170
  • and every time,
  • 00:22:40.170 --> 00:22:43.060

  • God will not forsake me.
  • 00:22:47.110 --> 00:22:49.010
  • One more time,
  • 00:22:49.010 --> 00:22:49.190
  • say it bold.
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:50.210
  • That time,
  • 00:22:50.210 --> 00:22:52.090
  • and I need somebody
  • 00:22:52.090 --> 00:22:52.250
  • to shout over that time.
  • 00:22:52.250 --> 00:22:54.200
  • You know that time,
  • 00:22:54.200 --> 00:22:55.210
  • when the enemy whispered,
  • 00:22:55.210 --> 00:22:56.210
  • "Take your life."
  • 00:22:56.210 --> 00:22:57.220
  • The enemy whispered,
  • 00:22:57.220 --> 00:22:58.130
  • "There's no recovery."
  • 00:22:58.130 --> 00:22:59.200
  • The enemy whispered,
  • 00:22:59.200 --> 00:23:00.150
  • "You'll never get through this."
  • 00:23:00.150 --> 00:23:01.290
  • That divorce, that whatever,
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:03.110
  • that disaster, but God said,
  • 00:23:03.200 --> 00:23:06.200
  • "I'm gonna see you through."
  • 00:23:06.200 --> 00:23:08.070
  • That time, this time,
  • 00:23:08.110 --> 00:23:11.110
  • somebody shout over
  • 00:23:11.110 --> 00:23:12.040
  • in your very circumstance
  • 00:23:12.040 --> 00:23:13.270
  • right now,
  • 00:23:13.270 --> 00:23:15.110
  • "He's big and in control."
  • 00:23:16.240 --> 00:23:19.240
  • And here's a big one,
  • 00:23:19.240 --> 00:23:20.250
  • somebody shout,
  • 00:23:20.250 --> 00:23:21.090
  • "Over every time."
  • 00:23:21.100 --> 00:23:24.100
  • Get up on your feet

  • of this program,

  • a humbling opportunity
  • 00:24:11.030 --> 00:24:13.190
  • that we have to be a part
  • 00:24:13.190 --> 00:24:15.030
  • of fulfilling Biblical prophecy,
  • 00:24:15.030 --> 00:24:17.170
  • think about that.
  • 00:24:17.170 --> 00:24:19.040
  • You see, while I was
  • 00:24:19.040 --> 00:24:19.260
  • in Israel this time,
  • 00:24:19.260 --> 00:24:21.220
  • the Lord spoke the Scripture
  • 00:24:21.220 --> 00:24:23.100
  • from Isaiah that said,
  • 00:24:23.100 --> 00:24:25.030
  • "Comfort ye, comfort ye,
  • 00:24:25.030 --> 00:24:27.270
  • My people."
  • 00:24:27.270 --> 00:24:28.250
  • He said, "The people
  • 00:24:28.250 --> 00:24:30.130
  • are being terrified,
  • 00:24:30.130 --> 00:24:32.060
  • the people are being attacked."
  • 00:24:32.060 --> 00:24:34.200
  • In one place we went,
  • 00:24:34.200 --> 00:24:36.040
  • they were being attacked
  • 00:24:36.040 --> 00:24:37.160
  • over, and over, and over.
  • 00:24:37.160 --> 00:24:38.280
  • Missiles were falling,
  • 00:24:38.280 --> 00:24:40.200
  • and fires were being started
  • 00:24:40.200 --> 00:24:42.200
  • because of the dryness
  • 00:24:42.200 --> 00:24:44.130
  • of the season,
  • 00:24:44.130 --> 00:24:46.100
  • things can be ignited,
  • 00:24:46.100 --> 00:24:48.270
  • and blown up,
  • 00:24:48.270 --> 00:24:50.070
  • and destroyed within
  • 00:24:50.070 --> 00:24:51.140
  • a matter of hours.
  • 00:24:51.140 --> 00:24:53.070
  • And they need comfort.
  • 00:24:53.070 --> 00:24:54.290
  • They don't just
  • 00:24:54.290 --> 00:24:55.180
  • need our prayers,
  • 00:24:55.180 --> 00:24:57.000
  • they need our support.
  • 00:24:57.000 --> 00:24:58.180
  • And, right now,
  • 00:24:58.180 --> 00:24:59.110
  • I heard the Lord saying,
  • 00:24:59.110 --> 00:25:00.230
  • "Comfort My people."
  • 00:25:00.230 --> 00:25:03.140

  • Scripture together,
  • 00:25:04.110 --> 00:25:05.100
  • in Isaiah?
  • 00:25:05.100 --> 00:25:06.090
  • "Comfort My people..."
  • 00:25:06.090 --> 00:25:08.150
  • He said it twice because
  • 00:25:08.150 --> 00:25:10.150
  • it's so important that we,
